Midnight Medley

Yes, those ultra-smart Jews are an unfortunate stereotype, it seems:

Before Americans feel too good, though, I have this for you:

For Canadians, I had a link about how unwoke books were burned in Quebec and the ashes used to fertilize the soul where an indigenous tree of knowledge is supposed to grow (yes, true story) but I decided to stop.

Let’s take a vote: which of the 3 stories is the dumbest? Australians can’t play because their mastery of this sport is unparalleled in the known universe.

  1. The original time capsule was filled with unacceptable items relevant to the statue: Confederate coins, buttons, and the Confederate battle flag.

    Future generations who open the time capsule a hundred years or so from today will probably never have been allowed to see an image of the Confederate flag, anyway, so they wouldn’t know what it was.

  2. Quebec’s story wins hands down, especially after one checks its latest developments:

    \ The ashes of the burned books were used as fertilizer for trees planted by students

    The practice was carried out under the guidance of indigenous “knowledge-keepers,” such as Suzy Kies, the co-chair of the Indigenous Peoples’ Commission.

    The indigenous advisers were deeply involved in the project, Cossette explained to the Post, noting that the board had “formed a committee” and consulted with “many aboriginal knowledge-keepers and elders” at various stages of the process – “from the conceptualization to the evaluation of the books, to the tree-planting initiative.”

    The book-burning story took an unexpected twist on Wednesday, with Radio Canada reporting that Kies might have not had the aboriginal roots she claimed to have. While Kies claimed that one of her parents was of aboriginal origin and one of European origin, the outlet cited civil status records suggesting that her father was born in Luxembourg and her mother was French.

    Dominique Ritchot, a genealogical researcher cited by Radio Canada, concluded the “knowledge keeper” had “no aboriginal ancestors for at least seven generations.”

    The revelation might have saved some 200 books that were still “under evaluation” in the burning initiative, with Cossette telling Radio Canada that the whole “Give back to the earth” project was halted.

    “We are deeply troubled and worried… We were confident that Suzy Kies was of aboriginal descent… We had relied on her word,” Cossette said in an email.

    Shortly after the report came out, Kies announced her resignation from the party commission. She dismissed any question over her indiginous heritage, however, insisting that the only reason for her departure was to protect Trudeau and the Liberal Party.

    1. But if she did have an aboriginal ancestor, it would be OK to burn the books. Totally makes sense. I suggest DNA tests and nose-measuring devices the next time. Just to make completely sure the people burning books have the ancestry that is virtuous enough.

  3. Google translate from Ukrainian:

    “Don’t miss the important decision of the EU in the field of freedom of speech in social networks – Sanchez v. France.

    The case raises a new question – about the limits of social media account holders due to unacceptable comments from third parties under posts (Delfi AS’s previous key case concerns the responsibility of Internet portals for hate language). The court first stated that the owner of the account has special responsibilities of control and vigilance, including if deciding to make his account public, provides an opportunity to comment on anyone, and publishes content, potentially provoking hate language. In this situation, the owner’s quick reaction is critical.

    The applicant – local MP and parliamentary candidate – has been convicted of stirring up hostility because of not immediately deleting comments from third parties with hate language (regarding the Muslim community, which in the comments was associated with crime in the city and equated to a group of drug dealers and hoe ′′) under his Facebook post criticizing his political opponent. According to the Court, knowingly making its Facebook account public, and allowing its friends, in total, 1829 people, to post comments there, the applicant was obliged to follow the content of the comments posted. Furthermore, he couldn’t help but know that his post would most likely attract political comments that should have been tracked even more carefully. The court did not see a violation of the Convention in condemning the applicant who had not deleted the corresponding comments for 6 weeks.

    One judge disagreed with this conclusion, according to whom the use of ′′ hiking ′′ liability of the owner of Facebook is a threat to freedom of speech, first in the case of public people with a very large number of ′′ friends “. The conclusion of the lack of violation of article 10 of the Convention draws The owner of the account is a heavy duty of control and is able to turn him into a censor of words written on his wall.”

  4. The Israeli minister is correct to say that people who have received 2 doses of the experimental gene therapy vaccine are at greater risk than those who have not received any injections at all, because the double dosed people are susceptible to antibody dependent enhanced illness.

    I mean, it would probably be better and more honest if he started calling them “surprise lifetime customers” but still, he isn’t wrong.

      1. “I don’t know what other logical explanation there might be.”

        There is another explanation that isn’t true but that is logical, and that is simply that the efficacy of the vaccines is low, while the compliance rate of the group that has already received 2 shots is high.

        A dishonest politician trying to avoid large numbers of twice jabbed people from being sickened or hospitalised due to lack of effective immunity, who also doesn’t want to run an expensive and contradictory propaganda campaign, might try to lie to the high compliance group in the knowledge that they will probably line up for a 3rd shot.

        That way, the high compliance group that was about to get sick or be hospitalised at high rates due to not having lasting immunity can achieve temporary immunity that will both stave off bad news and allow pharmaceutical companies to have a few more months to produce a better product.

        As you said though, the data is pointing to ADE. The above, however alluring to some people, is, imo wishful thinking.

        1. I think this is the road they are going to go. Many people don’t know about ADE, they don’t know why you don’t vaccinate at the height of an epidemic. People have an enormous level of trust for authority and the media. I’m from the USSR, so my first instinct is never to trust.

  5. My neighbour is a firefighter. He was recently given an ultimatum at work to either take the jab or lose his job. I try to encourage my neighbours and others like them by compelling them to stay strong. The truth is however, I am losing optimism. I feel ‘they’re closing in and in on people like us’.
