Quote of the Day - Hopper PBUH Edition

12 I'm sorry Ace, I love your analysis and commentary but this fawning over Dennis Hopper is silly, to be generous.

Posted by: MrPaulRevere at May 30, 2010 02:19 AM (BP0+R)

13 Actually, I do worship Dennis Hopper, and I mean that quite literally.

I believe he is a god. Not THE God, but a god. Like Apollo.

I have a big shrine to him. I do coke because he did. I call it the coke-shrine.

Quote of the Day

Lefty loosie, righty tightie, and wash your hands before eating lunch was the entire plumbing handbook when I was a kid. The appendix held one one additional piece of advice: Water always runs downhill. Wanna bet?

When the clocks run backwards, when the sun rises in the west, when the lion lays down with the lamb, when politicians start telling the truth, when water doesn't run downhill, when the laws of supply and demand are revoked -- supplying finless brown trout to the porcelain gods and demanding that they go away -- that's when you know you're in for it. You got existential trouble there, Camus, I'm tellin' you.

I don't think I can accurately describe what that geyser of excrement in the carhole meant to me at that moment. It was literally an existential threat.

Is Twitter Silencing Conservatives?

In addition to shadowbanning Twitter is now stripping verified accounts of their verification with no explanation. Presumably for some unnamed offense but how does an offense possibly make you stop being yourself? And these new tactics on the part of Twitter seem primarily focused on conservative users.

Furthermore as Ace mentioned in the sidebar Twitter has created a new "Trust and Safety council" to police tweets and stocked it with a rogue's gallery of SJW-types. Including Anita Sarkeesian, GLAAD, and Islamic activist groups among others it's like the UN Human Rights Committee of free speech opponents on the internet.

With no explanation given as usual. At this point I think we've moved beyond coincidence and are heading into enemy action territory.

"...they tell us these [illegals] are a 'cultural enrichment' for us ... I ask myself where their cultural riches are. Because if it is to sack, to destroy, to steal, to rape and so on, the French were fully capable of doing it themselves, one only had to ask."
