I think Mr Pool might pass out because of all that rage and fear

Got a vintage '86 made in Japan tele as a little Christmas to me coming in, and I'm so excited to finally strum something solid

Back in July I'd excerpted a sample chapter from my book for the purpose of submitting to potential publishers. But the file was 901MB - nearly a GB in size. I'd have to host it on my Google Drive and my potential publisher's submission guidelines stated that I'd have to wait three months for a response.

Wednesday I had the idea to research compression tools to reduce the size of the sample chapter document. In a matter of minutes I worked out how to compress the file without any loss of visible image quality to ONE NINE-HUNDREDTH the size of my original sample!

The new file was tiny and portable so I'd have no difficulty attaching it to an email with my proposal. I'm excited to say that I've just submitted my first proposal!

It's a national publisher created by the gent who founded the largest secular humanism organization in the country, headquartered right in my city and of which I am an active member. Their socially-progressive mission aligns with the central themes of my writing so I'm hopeful that they'll consider printing my work.

damn that's a crazy tweet ngl

But yeah maybe Tucker doesn't specifically talk about Jewish bankers but tim pool also doesn't specifically say LGBT are groomers or pedophiles and thus deserving of death. They call specific people who interact with kids groomers based on the idea that they're trying to indoctrinate them.

None of this is to defend that narrative, only to point out that they more often use coded language in all cases. Depending on the topic, more or less coding might be needed.

So yeah, Tucker might not say Jewish bankers, because he knows which line to tow, but when they talk about the great replacement usually there's a Jewish cabal at the end of that rainbow just off screen, greedily defending their pot of gold. Hence the people marching in Charlottesville chanting "Jews will not replace us. "

And Tucker just had on Kanye who's prolific comments about jews inspired people to put up a sign in LA or some**** along the freeway saying "Kanye is right about the jews." And Trump just got in hot water for having dinner with like Kanye and Nick Fuentes lol.

It's true the victim blaming **** feels out of the norm and kind of new but it feels like that's the kind of callous attitude people are taking towards their political rivals in general. Look at the Pelosi attack and the responses to that.

I think we are increasingly being primed for enmity and hostility and I don't disagree that we don't feel like we are headed towards a stable status quo. I think some kind of civil conflict is becoming less unlikely every day. But I don't know what that would look like, I just share the general sense of instability. I think most people do.

I asked if you think there's a trans genocide coming cause I was actually curious though, not just to be dismissive although I am. It's not like impossible or anything it just always feels like such a stretch to claim it at this point that it comes across as disingenuous to me, like people who are saying it don't believe it but are being more extreme to signal their supposed allyship or something. But I'm not abusing you of that, given your answers I think I do see where you are coming from about the rhetoric. But I think you are also ideologically invested and thus you are amplifying and overstating the nature of the threat.

Sigh. The bigoted rhetoric across the board is definitely getting worse, but LGBTQ people are especially on the margins of society and so can be a sort of canary in the coal mine for how this stuff can go.

In May 1933, only months after Hitler became chancellor in January, there was an institute of "sexology" that studied LGBTQ things, and it was closed by the Nazis and had all of its literature burnt. It was one of the first things the Nazis did.

Institut für Sexualwissenschaft - Wikipedia

If Tim Pool and Tucker Carlson stop using coded language it's probably too ****ing late to stop whatever comes next. That's why people are ringing alarm bells now, not because a genocide is imminent, but because if we wait till it is then we're ****ed. And even if it never happens then that political instability we both agree is very possible could still lead to higher body counts for marginalized people.

Yesterday should have been the last day for turkey leftovers. Today might be a little iffy, but I'm gonna chance it. The turkey soup is just too good to throw out right now.

Is Thanksgiving to Americans like Christmas is to everybody else?

It's the appetizer. Xmas is the main course. New Years Eve is the dessert tray.

Not quite, but it's a pretty big deal in the States. We celebrate the day when the Native Americans invited the Pilgrims to their feast before the Pilgrims killed them
