You’ve probably already seen the footage of a white police officer named Derek Chauvin cheerfully suffocating a black man named George Floyd to death with his knee while Floyd pleaded for his life. This went viral around the same time as another viral video where a white woman in Central Park called New York police on a black man who posed no threat to her while making sure to inform the police that he was black, and just weeks after video...

Right-wing pundit Ann Coulter went on a surprisingly vitriolic anti-Trump rant the other day, calling the president a “complete blithering idiot”, an “actual retard”, and “the most disloyal human God ever created” for his treatment of Jeff Sessions and his failure to build the border wall per his campaign promise.“Coulter is right,” comedian Tim Dillon tweeted in response. “Trump doesn’t...

This, but unironically.This thing we do, where we are people who do not understand what’s happening because we were raised by children and we are still children, and we are falling toward death with damaged minds in a universe made of awkward silence and we don’t know how to be cool about it.This place where we clawed our way up the food chain to become the apex predator and now we’re all afraid because we are surrounded by...

Friendly reminder that we’ve invented weapons which can end all life on earth and we’re in steadily increasing danger of setting them all off because some guys in a think tank wrote some words.~Believing cold war is no big deal because nuclear war hasn’t happened yet is the same as believing your game of Russian roulette is safe because the gun hasn’t gone off yet.~There’s no legitimate reason why nations can’...

The world’s worst Putin puppet is escalating tensions with Russia even further, with the Trump administration looking at withdrawal from more nuclear treaties in the near future.In addition to planning on withdrawing from the Open Skies Treaty and knocking back Moscow’s attempts to renew the soon-to-expire New START Treaty, Trump is also contemplating breaking the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban treaty by conducting the first US...

It is China’s fault that humans get sick, and that novel viruses sometimes occur.It is China’s fault that millions of Americans are being thrown off their employer-provided health insurance.It is China’s fault that your government is unrolling increasingly authoritarian measures during this pandemic instead of ensuring financial security through economic hardship.It is China’s fault that manufacturing jobs were shipped...

China is in the news every day now. Today here in Australia we’re pretending to be offended because a Chinese tabloid published the accusation that our nation is a “giant kangaroo that serves as a dog of the US”, even though we all know that’s completely true and we should be flattered that at least they said “giant”. Before that we were getting indignant over a hefty barley tariff in response to our...

Those eyes without dragons in them, without rebellions in them, without orgies in them, without mushrooms in them.Those eyes which move by habit, which see by habit, which unsee by habit.Those eyes which go dead while tongues gibber in the skull.Those eyes which miss miracles and ignore armageddons to watch adverts and wawawa drama queens.Those eyes which say “I’ve seen that before” to unprecedented moments and phoenix worlds....

Just a friendly reminder that this photo happened. For the record this is the only image anyone should ever use when sharing any information having to do with Jeff Bezos; I don’t care if it’s about Whole Foods stocks or a new series on Amazon Prime.~I feel like we don’t talk enough about how there are flying death robots constantly dropping explosives on civilians from the sky but all the news is about Trump tweeting mean...

On the whole and in general, anti-establishment circles are just another nerdy hobby group. Leftist groups, populist groups, conspiracy analysis groups, groups centered around revolutionary ideas–if you actually look at them and look at what’s actually happening in the discussions therein, most of the time it’s nothing more than a bunch of nerds arguing in the exact same nerdy ways as people who are really into Star Wars or...

Free Assange, because the world is growing darker as the bastards flick the lights off one by one.Free Assange, because the sky is filling with death machines as mothers weep over small tattered bodies and the news man talks about rude tweets.Free Assange, because they are taking everything from us and we are becoming voiceless, mindless gear turners who can only argue about who to bomb next.Free Assange, because if perception management gets...
