Overnight Open Thread (2-22-2016)

Quote of the Day I

As part of his "The Most Dangerous Faggot Tour," Yiannopoulos - who indeed is gay - lambasted many schools' attempts to shield students from ideas that might offend them during his Feb. 9 speech, calling out their "culture of safe spaces and trigger warnings."

"Of course, they're not really traumatized or upset - they're just upset that someone disagrees with them," he offered. "In my view, anybody who asks for a trigger warning or a safe space should be immediately expelled."

Quote of the Day II

If all it takes to scare you is geysers of blood and the camera alighting upon an unexpected sight whilst the score shrieks at you as if to say "hey, goober, this is a scary thing!" then I have to say I feel some pity for you. You're probably one of those people who feels no fear at the thought of setting foot in the Overlook Hotel and experiences no existential dread at the thought of a possessed child climbing the ceiling.

Quote of the Day III

I can't help but wonder if we are hitting "peak gun oil". The market is saturated with gun oil brands. They all work well, as do non gun specific oils.

-- Steve Johnson in FrogLube is Probably Made From Coconut Oil (Not Frogs)

Twitter Strikes Back, Permanently Bans RSM

It's as if the grown-ups left for the weekend, and the SJW interns are in control.

-- Rand Koch

The Twitter Star Chamber has decided. No explanation nor possible appeal offered.

How the SJWs Work

I have no idea who Mike from Red Bar is or whether he's guilty of anything. But I do recognize thuggery when I see it.

The CIA Is Getting Out of the Spying Business

It's new mission is diversity. Though perhaps with a little occasional, diversified intelligence gathering thrown in.

CIA Director John Brennan said diversity and inclusion are "at the heart" of what the intelligence service is "charged to do."

"This three-year strategy renews and strengthens our focus on diversity and inclusion and sets us on a course to further enrich our workplace and fully leverage our talented workforce," Brennan said. "Combining what we have in common with what each of us brings as unique individuals is a powerful recipe for success. This is the kind of Agency our employees expect and deserve. Together we can make this happen."

America Is Nothing But the Country of a Band of Despicable Racists, Quips French Cartoonist

Despite having elected a black president twice the US is still a horribly racist country. To be fair this is the same argument that the American left makes as well.

British Police Seize 500 Guns From the Home of a Crane Operator

Warning: Gun Pr0n ahead.

Now THIS is an arsenal. A lot of these are historical and/or uncommon guns including a Bren gun, STG-44, a Thompson, a good number of FALs and various sub-machine guns plus a whole lot of miscellaneous guns. Along with anti-tank weaponry. It's a shame they'll likely all be destroyed.
