The Perverts Have Spoken

Similarly to the Onion, the Babylon Bee’s satire is a little too true to be funny sometimes.

Sexual Revolution Working Out Great, Reports Nation Full Of Perverts

U.S.—The aftermath of the sexual revolution is working out just splendidly, reported a nation filled with perverts, pedophiles, and sexual predators Friday afternoon.

The country currently reaping the consequences of decades of declining sexual morals reported it would do it all over again in a heartbeat, further stating that it was “really proud” of the progress it had made over the past fifty years. When asked about the numerous scandals, controversies, and painful repercussions of the sexual revolution coming to light in recent months, nearly every person in the nation confirmed it was “feeling great” about the sexual revolution and its insidious consequences.

“This is fine—totally fine,” one political commentator on NBC filling in for Matt Lauer said. “I think the sexual revolution is working out just great, and I’m proud to live in the US where we’re uninhibited by outdated ideas about human relationships, like monogamy and faithfulness.”

According to the country with dozens of famous celebrities, television pundits, and politicians currently embroiled in sexual scandals, the sexual revolution was a necessary period that allowed the nation to throw off the outdated, restricted shackles of religion and biblical morality.

“I really pity all those backward parts of the world that haven’t had the privilege of experiencing their own sexual revolution,” one politician said as he checked Twitter to see if his own personal indiscretions had been revealed yet. “One day, they’ll be enlightened too.”

Shia Strikes Back

Shia Labeouf returns and he’s out for revenge!

Shia LaBeouf says neo-Nazis stole his art project in Tennessee

Months after an anti-Donald Trump flag was stolen from from a field in Greeneville, Tenn., actor Shia LaBeouf and fellow art project collaborators on Monday outed the Tennessee-based “neo-Nazis” they’re accusing of committing the crime.

Two individuals the artists identified as a Kingston-based married couple posted photos and other messages online bragging about stealing the flag, which users on image-sharing forum 4chan successfully located through their own investigation.

Turner said law enforcement has also identified the couple, but “nothing has happened” and no charges against them have been filed.

“It has not been a secret who they are, because they identified themselves,” Turner said.

In a statement LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner released on Monday identifying the couple, the trio wrote that they “feel morally compelled to name them, as the circumstances mean this is a matter of wider public safety.”

“Disturbingly, the authorities in Tennessee have so far failed to show the will to bring the perpetrators of this hate crime to justice, despite boasts online about their actions, their anti-Semitic motivation, and the fact that they lied to police,” according to the statement.

As of yet, there isn’t any news of the police actually doing anything yet so Shia doxxing attempt may not produce the desired affect.  What’s the next move for vigilante Shia?

Charlottesville: Orchestrated Violence

Well, we knew the supposedly alt-right caused violence was all narrative but it’s always surprising when someone not on that side of things comes out and admits it.

The System Repudiated

An “Independent Review Of The 2017 Protest Events In Charlottesville, Virginia,” by a team headed by Timothy J. Heaphy of the Richmond VA law firm Hunton & Williams commissioned by the Charlottesville city government, has just been released. The results are utterly damning. No accusation leveled on August 12 even approached the actual conduct of the Charlottesville Police Department. The only question: whether incompetence or malevolence was the greater factor.

The Heaphy Report raises major issues about the future of free speech in the United States, the influence of Leftist radicalism within government, and the politicization of law enforcement. But, as lawsuits are already pending, the specific events, decisions, and tactical police deployments highlighted in the Heaphy Report are likely to draw the most attention in the immediate future.

The smoking gun: the Heaphy report’s finding that the police never intended to separate the two sides, prevent violence, or allow the demonstration to take place. Instead, the Charlottesville Police wanted violence, which could then be used as an excuse to break up the demonstration.

Well worth reading the whole thing.

What have the police been doing for the past 24 years?

Seems a lot of people like to pipe and demand to know why victims of sexual abuse don’t go around naming names and trying to put molesters behind bars.  Maybe it’s because they already did.

Corey Feldman WAS telling the truth: Santa Barbara police say they’ve found historic audio of him naming abusers which he claims they then covered up

Police in California say they have uncovered a tape in which Corey Feldman lists the names of men who abused him in the past.

The former child actor had claimed in October that he had given the names of sexual predators in Hollywood to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 during their investigation into Michael Jackson’s molestation charges.

But the sheriff’s office previously denied the claims, saying they had no records of Feldman revealing such information, however they have now changed their tune and stated that an audio recording has been found in a container from the original Michael Jackson child abuse investigation.

1993.  The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office sure did a good job on that case.

 

Homicidal psychotic break, reasons possible pharmacological

Is it possible to have a homicidal psychotic break and do long term planning for a complex crime?  John Ringo has an interesting and personal take on the (now practically forgotten) Las Vegas shooting.  He relates his wife’s reaction to being put on a certain antidepressant.  It’s well worth reading the whole thing.

The specific issue was she had ‘an uncontrollable desire to do harm to those who do harm to others.’ Notably, she’d built up a list of persons on the Megan’s (sexual predators) List and had developed very carefully constructed kill plans for each. She was tracking them and targeting them carefully. She has an extensive background in forensics and was probably going to get away with it.

Now, people may look at the targets and go ‘Well… Uhm… having a hard time with that being ‘bad’.’ But to be very clear, my wife had shifted, subtly and without warning, from sweet, Christian, Miriam to serial killer. And I do mean without ANY REAL WARNING.
***
Most people think of ‘homicidal break’ as someone suddenly ‘grabbing a letter opener and carving their way out of Cost Accountancy and into forensic history.’ (H/t: the late Sir Terry Pratchett.)

That’s not, generally, how it works. How much planning and preparation a person does depends upon how rapid the onset is (months in Miriam’s case) and how good they are at planning and preparation. (Both Miriam and Paddock were planners. He was an accountant and multi-millionaire.)

So look at the story above and break it down:

Relatively normal person, perhaps a bit odd, has minor changes in behavior that no-one in their close circle really notices.

He/she is a methodical person with an agenda. Other people who’ve done mass kills simply did not do it right. He/she is going to do it right. He knows they hold concerts by the Mandalay. That’s the perfect venue for the most kills.

Suddenly they’re a mass killer for no apparent reason.

He Will Not Combust Us

Just when it seemed like Shia LaBeouf had abandoned us, failed miserably, and locked his precious flag in a closet, that madman is back.  This time in France!  The He Will Not Divide Us flag is flying high (so high they need a crane to get to it) and thankfully (for Shia) made out of some kind of flame-retardant fabric.  Because /pol/ is right behind him.

Shia LaBeouf’s ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ Flag Targeted with Flaming Drone

American actor Shia LaBeouf’s artistic protest against US President Donald Trump has been attacked again — this time by vandals using a flaming drone in western France where it went on display this month.

The project, which features a white flag with the words “He Will Not Divide Us” filmed round-the-clock by a camera, has already moved several times from New York, to New Mexico and to Liverpool in Britain because of security problems.

Now installed above an art gallery in an old biscuit factory in the French city of Nantes, the flag came under attack overnight Tuesday-Wednesday by a drone, which attempted for several minutes to set it on fire.

The remotely-piloted arson attempt failed when the drone crashed.

It just doesn’t stop being funny.
