Stifling Fools

Hey folks, I know some of you have been wondering if the war got me or the empire finally managed to silence me or some other calamity has befallen my family, but the answer is unequivocally “no.” I’m still here, thinking and speaking and breathing my truth :)

Why the silence, then?

Well, I felt like I got hit by a Mack truck this past spring, and it took me a really long time to figure out both what happened and what, if anything, I needed to say about it.

That “Mack truck,” of course, was the tsunami of utter bullshit about what’s been going on in Ukraine and all the people (and their algorithms) who have been working so hard to censor and destroy anyone who tries to sort fact from fiction. I guess, after two years of lies about Covid, I just wasn’t expecting to get pummeled again so hard, and it knocked the breath out of me, to be quite frank.

During my time away from here, though, I did go back and read some of my old stories (on this here website). Some of them made me smile, and others got me fired up, but I realized that there’s quite a bit of naïveté running through everything.

You see, I used to believe that most leaders were more or less “good” people, that most of the countries in Europe were democracies, that most journalists were (more or less) trying to tell some part of the truth, that most doctors actually wanted to heal people, and that most cultures were (more or less) good, even if I disagreed with them.

But now? I’m sorry to say this, but a suicide cult has taken over the world. The non-stop avalanche of propaganda bullshit that they are flooding our minds with is only a symptom of a deeper and more horrifying illness because these assholes really do want to wipe out humanity.

Fun, eh?

Ukraine in the Membrane

I’m working on some longer pieces about all these lies and propaganda, but for now, I thought it’d be interesting to pierce a few holes in the bizarro Russian-Ukraine war narrative that’s taken over the Western world’s brain this year.

    • The Russian economy – Since February 25, everyone and their pedophile grandpa has been crowing about the “impending collapse” of the Russian economy. In reality, the Russian government made more money this year than last year. However, literally this morning I saw the devoted Nazi lovin’ Michael McFaul saying something like “sure, the Russian economy is doing well NOW, but in the long-term, it’s doomed.” Sure, sure…
    • The gas face – No idea why this is some big “secret,” but Russia has been paying Ukraine (natural) gas transit fees since Day 1 of the war. Yes, really. Russia is literally paying Ukraine. Think about that next time you hear of a country (Moldova, *cough cough*) declaring how “immoral” it is to buy Russian gas.
    • Peace negotiations – The talk (which changes on a daily/weekly basis) about who might be secretly negotiating with whom or who told whom to end peace negotiations all belies the fact that the Ukrainian government literally murdered its own peace negotiator. That’s the spirit of diplomacy, bro!
    • Democracy and Freedom – If I hear that Ukraine is a “democracy” or is “fighting for freedom” one more time, I will puke. Ukraine has outlawed all opposition political parties, outlawed all non-government media, outlawed all trade union meetings and assemblies and outlawed all forms of protest, both online and in-person. Ukraine has also imposed martial law, executed non-judicial punishments, and made it illegal to leave the country without permission. Basically, we’re talking North Korea but with more blonde folks.

Mind you, none of the above refers to the (literally) hundreds of fake reports about battles, executions, mass graves, kidnappings, rapes, massacres, bombings, and, of course, the ludicrous military-issue Viagra pills story that the United Nations itself was peddling.

Nor, sadly, do I want to document all the times this year that Ukrainian officials have literally called for the genocide of all ethnic Russians, including Russian children. Sigh…

And damn, I definitely don’t have time to list all the Nazi stuff that’s going on in Ukraine, including Zelensky’s own Nazi bodyguards. I mean fuck, I used to live in Israel, and a Jew openly celebrating Nazis is about the last thing I ever thought I’d live to see.

And yes, I’m quite aware that Russia (the country) is not angelic. Yes, Vladimir Putin is not a saint. And yes, the Russian armed forces are not bulletproof, unstoppable masters of war.

What concerns me is not the tit-for-tat stuff on the battlefield but the sheer amount of crazy propaganda and dark forces in play that make it nearly impossible to ever find a peaceful resolution for millions of human beings while putting the entire planet on the doorstep of nuclear annihilation.

And that is far more important than whatever is going on militarily this week.

  1. Welcome back, sir.

    I made several attempts to find out what happened to you–living on road-kill in Florida?

    Long may you remain pungent.


  2. Hello from the UK.

    Many thanks for your post. As regards Zelenskyy (I believe he likes to spell it with two y’s but why I don’t know as he certainly isn’t wise!) and Jewish and Nazi, well the Ashke-nazi was in the area of Germany and Eastern Europe.

    And there are Jews who say they are Jews but are not but are of the synagogue of Satan.

    We are playing out a scenario similar to WW2 only 80 years ago. It may seem bizarre but that is the truth.

    And as for the propaganda or perhaps we should say improper-gander as people are not taking a proper gander or look at the issues, yes it makes me puke too. I want to beat people over the head and say ‘No, no, no, get a grip you idiots, why are you double checking both sides of the equation!’

    In my village where my wife and I live it makes my blood boil to see the Ukrainian flags on 2 or 3 flagpoles still flying.

    However, perhaps people’s geography is poor and we are in the UK and it is raining today. So we are in the UK rain!!!

    My link on timescale if you are interested. Bear in mind that 80 years ago the Russians were about to launch a counter-attack and isolate the 6th German Army under Von Paulus very shortly. I wait with baited breath…

    Kind regards and many thanks again.
