    The Cynical and Dangerous Weaponization of the "White Supremacist" Label In dominant elite discourse, no evidence is needed to brand someone a "white supremacist." The belief that it will produce political or personal gain suffices. Glenn Greenwald (27 November 2021) Within hours of the August 25, 2020, shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin — not days, but hours — it was decreed as unquestioned fact in mainstream political and media circles that the shooter, Kyle Rittenhouse, was a "white supremacist.” Over the next fifteen months, up to and including his acquittal by a jury of his peers on all charges, this label was applied to him more times than one can count by corporate media outlets as though it were proven fact. Indeed, that Rittenhouse was a "white supremacist” was deemed so unquestionably true that questioning it was cast as evidence of one's own racist inclinations (defending a white supremacist). Yet all along, there was never any substantial evidence, let alone convincing proof, that it was true. This fact is, or at least should be, an extraordinary, even scandalous, event: a 17-year-old was widely vilified as being a white supremacist by a union of national media and major politicians despite there being no evidence to support the accusation. Yet it took his acquittal by a jury who heard all the evidence and testimony for parts of the corporate press to finally summon the courage to point out that what had been Gospel about Rittenhouse for the last fifteen months was, in fact, utterly baseless. A Washington Post news article was published late last week that was designed to chide "both sides” for exploiting the Rittenhouse case for their own purposes while failing to adhere carefully to actual facts. Ever since the shootings in Kenosha, they lamented, "Kyle Rittenhouse has been a human canvas onto which the nation’s political divisions were mapped.” In attempting to set the record straight, the Post article contained this amazing admission:

    There is more to the story than this one individual "looking inside an unfinished building". The community had recently experienced a crime wave, including the theft of a firearm. Their neighborhood was on heightened alert as a result. (Also, I personally haven't "looked around inside and unfinished home", and I don't think *most* of us have... it's not my stuff, so it's not my business.) Again, I would recommend listening to Branca's comments on this matter. As I said, I'm not going to take a hard line on this one because I haven't looked into it as much as I did the Rittenhouse case, but it does seem that there is more here than meets the eye.

    I'm aware of the right of citizen's arrest- but looking inside a unfinished building structure, which most of us have done, is questionable grounds for stalking someone. Plus, if tools are actually being stolen, then any smart person would make sure stuff was locked up & safe.

    I went from "Climate Change Skeptic" to "I don't care" the moment I listened to Michael Shellenberger talk about it. Anyone who is an advocate of "climate change", or even unsure, should give him a sounding.

    A citizen's arrest is an actual thing. I'm not going to defend the McMichaels, because I do not know enough about the case, but I do recommend you watch Tim Pool's IRL with Andrew Branca on this topic. I found it interesting:

    We here of course all understand this. However I thought this article might be useful to those trying to Red Pill friends/family. I find myself more compelled by commentary on this and a few other topics coming from left leaning folks like Greenwald and Taibbi and Tim Pool, I suspect because they're calling it out from inside the walls. Much like Solzhenitsyn's critique of communism is more compelling than William F. Buckley's - not because Buckley was wrong about communism, but because Solzhenitsyn had personal experience with it. I'll quote the segments of the article I found most noteworthy, but please do read it in it's entirety - It's well worth the time. From Zero Hedge, via Glenn Greenwald's Substack:

    That can be determined as "stalking". "The crime of stalking can be simply described as the unwanted pursuit of another person." Also, if 3 black guys were following you in their trucks would you just calmly stand there & ask them what they wanted or would you take off & try to get out of sight?

    I’m Thankful Thanksgiving Offends All the Worst People https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/11/27/thankful-thanksgiving-offends-worst-people/ JOHN NOLTE 27 Nov 2021 Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Turkey, stuffing, pie, four-day weekend… What’s not to love? But what makes Thanksgiving especially enjoyable are all the neurotic and narcissistic whiners who use the holiday to pretend they’re not Nazis. Nobody stole your land, you godless crybaby.
