New warning in Covid-19 vaccine data sheets.

Well now. After weeks and months of physicians and other medical types being kicked off of You Tube, Facebook, Twitter etc. by the censors, we have this tidbit here:

FDA plans to "move rapidly" to add a warning to fact sheets for Pfizer and Moderna's Covid-19 vaccines about the rare risk of developing inflammatory heart conditions, an agency official said Wednesday.

"Based on the available data, a warning statement in the fact sheets for both health care providers and vaccine recipients and caregivers would be warranted in this situation," Doran Fink, deputy director of FDA's vaccines division, said during a CDC advisory committee meeting on Covid vaccines.


Gee whiz fam, I guess my friggin' tinfoil hat wasn't on that tight after all, eh? So, let's see some numbers shall we?
 

The scope of the problem: The conditions are rare, with more than 1,200 cases under investigation as of June 11 among more than 150 million people who have received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. CDC has found more cases occurring after the second shot of an mRNA vaccine. More cases have been reported among Pfizer vaccine recipients, which may be due to the fact that the shot is authorized for people age 12 and up, while Moderna's shot is only authorized for adults.

The "mRNA vaccines may be a new trigger for myocarditis," said Matthew Oster of the CDC. The condition can also occur after viral infection, including Covid-19.


Of concern here is that teens are getting myocarditis from the vaccine but they don't from Covid-19. So your kid most likely won't have a problem with the WuFlu, but they might with the vaccine, meaning there's no reason to get your teens vaccinated and at least one good reason not to. Ivermectin does not cause myocarditis in teens. Just sayin'.

When the N. Korean defectors says Columbia U is crazier than N. Korea...

...then you know it is getting very bad.

When it came to gender pronouns and manipulation of the English language, [Yeonmi] Park was even more confused.

"English is my third language. I learned it as an adult. I sometimes still say 'he' or 'she' by mistake and now they are going to ask me to call them 'they'? How the heck do I incorporate that into my sentences?" she remembered asking herself. "It was chaos. It felt like the regression in civilization."

"Even North Korea is not this nuts," she added. "North Korea was pretty crazy, but not this crazy."

This from a girl who first escaped North Korea, and then sex slavery in China, and finally made it from Mongolia to South Korea. She found Columbia abusive.

Eventually, Park stopped arguing with her professors and "learned how to just shut up" so that she could graduate. She reserved her most pointed criticisms for the woke scolds who constantly lament about being oppressed.

"Because I have seen oppression, I know what it looks like," she said. "These kids keep saying how they're oppressed, how much injustice they've experienced. They don't know how hard it is to be free."

"I literally crossed through the middle of the Gobi Desert to be free. But what I did was nothing, so many people fought harder than me and didn't make it," she added.

I saw some of these Columbia/NYU assholes when I was in PT school in the 1990s. I never backed down from a single one of them myself, but then I was huge, male, White and Canadian so I had quite a bit going for me that she doesn't have. I'm sure if I was this girl and worried about my GPA, I'd have shut the hell up.

It isn't like getting up in their faces and calling them on their bullshit made even a tiny pinch of difference anyway. Most of them you would need to literally beat them with a Louisville Slugger to even get their attention. Not really kidding about that. New York liberals are utterly impenetrable. Nothing you can say will raise even a flicker of thought. Even repeated muggings sometimes fail to change their minds. 

Update: Jordan Peterson interviewed Yeonmi Park. Two hours, very powerful story. I recommend it.

HCQ USA study: 200% increase in survival.

This is yet another study showing huge, astounding results using HCQ, (hydroxychloroquine) and zinc on Covid-19 patients.

"We found that when the cumulative doses of two drugs, HCQ and AZM, were above a certain level, patients had a survival rate 2.9 times the other patients," the study's conclusion states.

That's nearly three times the survival rate of the unmedicated patients in the study. You never see things like that in the medical literature. You see things like 10% improvement in survival. Ten percent is considered pretty good. Survival rate triple? You never see that. That's like a Royal Flush in poker.
Just a reminder, HCQ is banned for use on Covid-19 in Canada. Banned.

Okay? Are we learning yet?

Whiteness, the new Lefty cause.

We've been seeing this word bandied about rather freely of late: Whiteness.

If you go to PubMed, the big online repository of Science (capital S for super important Real Science) papers, this is one of the "scientific papers" you're going to find:


On Having Whiteness

First Published May 27, 2021 Research Article Find in PubMed 
Published in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association (JAPA) on May 27th. That's a real journal, by the way, not one of those pretend ones run by some grad student in his mom's basement.

Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which "white" people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one's body, in one's mind, and in one's world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts' appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate. Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions. Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness's infiltrated appetites—to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation. When remembered and represented, the ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as warning ("never again") or as temptation ("great again"). Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression. There is not yet a permanent cure.


"There is not yet a permanent cure."

Which isn't true at all. There is one sure-fire permanent cure. Hitler used it on the Jews. Stalin used it on the Ukrainians. Mao used it on the Chinese, winning the numbers game by a wide margin. Mr. Donald Moss appears to be hinting he might like to try it here. On us.

Here's his book.


 
Here's a picture of him. Looks happy, right? I notice that he suffers rather severely from Whiteness.


 
Here's another one, in case anybody thinks the first one was a random alcoholic I plucked from teh interwebz.

Just in case you were wondering who's thirsting for your blood, now you know.

And now, from the bloodthirst to complete lack of self awareness: Yoga is too white, it should be Blacker. I'm not going to include the picture from the article, it is really unflattering to the poor woman. She's very large, and quite black. That's all you need to know.

Jessamyn Stanley needs you to know what yoga is really about - and it's not the poses.

In her new book Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance, the yoga instructor and body activist shares reflective personal essays that touch upon everything from racism to the cultural appropriation of American yoga, from consumerism to cannabis.

Yeah, but no. The book is actually about White Supremacy.

The book explores the existence of white supremacy and cultural appropriation in American yoga. "I would venture to say that everything in our collective society is rooted in white supremacy. I am sure there are many people who would disagree with that, and honestly I don't care because I believe that and I know it's the case," she says.

"I think that we see it show up in a lot of different ways. In the same way it's everywhere else and it has polluted everything else, it's polluted yoga. It's very much a part of how yoga has spread in America. The popularity of yoga really came down to wealthy white people wanting to learn and explore in a very specific way, and that's why yoga has been so white for so long in America."

The lack of self-awareness of an American black woman talking about "cultural appropriation" in regard to Yoga is really quite something.

Yoga is an Indian, specifically Hindu tradition that goes back well over 1500 years. A spiritual and religious tradition, the aim of which is to extinguish one's karma and get off the Wheel of Reincarnation. Nirvana is the aim. It has nothing to do with race, or Whiteness, or "body positivity" or any of the other things she's talking about in her book.

The book, so far as one can tell from her statements in the article, is pretty much a tirade against skinny rich white women, and has nothing to do with Yoga at all.

This recalls another recent article about Yoga being too White. A government program was the obvious answer.

This has been your Whiteness update for today. Tune in tomorrow (and for the foreseeable future) for more Whiteness.

Why is Canada insane?

In case you were wondering why the Canadian government seems insane, and why they keep doing things that fuck-over the general public, I have news. Canada is run by guys who think Canadians are STUPID, think we have too much freedom and too much money, and are determined to put a stop to it.

In his book Value(s): Building a Better World for All, Mark Carney, former governor both of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, claims that western society is morally rotten, and that it has been corrupted by capitalism, which has brought about a "climate emergency" that threatens life on earth. This, he claims, requires rigid controls on personal freedom, industry and corporate funding.

Carney's views are important because he is UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance. He is also an adviser both to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the next big climate conference in Glasgow, and to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

He's a Fascist, essentially. The capital "F", Third Reich, Hugo Boss wearing kind. And he thinks his star is so much in the ascendant he wrote a whole book where he says the quiet part out loud.

You're welcome. Vote accordingly. While you still can.

WorldCon finds Pre-Crime doesn't pay.

Ah yes, remember this little beauty?


Previously, Mr. Jon Del Arroz was banned from WorldCon and called a racist by them... for talking on the Internet. 
 
He hadn't done anything or said anything prohibited by the WorldCon rules. He mentioned he might wear a GoPro camera at the convention, in case some of the scooter-riders might try to hit him with their oxygen tanks. (Okay I made up the scooter part, but it was in that vein.)

Pre-crime. He -might- do something in the future, and they didn't like him anyway, so they banned him.

He sued them. And through the last several years, the suit dragged on.

Well, today the WorldCon apologized and paid Mr. Del Arroz money. I expect they thought it would be cheaper to admit the truth and knuckle under than continue to pretend they were in the right. Potentially be stuck for legal fees and court costs. That could hurt.

What goes around, comes around.

Fwd: Microsoft caught censoring the internet.

This time it is sufficiently unsubtle to be worth talking about.

One of the pics of Tank Man from that day.


That's Tank Man from Tiananmen Square. Very famous. You can't miss it. I searched and downloaded this one from Google today.

Search "Tank Man" on Bing, Yahoo or DuckDuckGo.



Nothing.

Okay? Microsoft, red handed, carrying water for the ChiComs.

Time to switch to Linux? I'll be looking into it.

Google, don't be evil to the Jews.

Can't believe I'm sitting here, 2021, and we're having the "Jews are evil!" conversation. I thought the Greatest Generation settled that shit when they picked Hitler's dead ass out of his bunker in 1945.

But no. Here we are again.

Kamau Bobb, Google Diversity Tzar.

Kamau Bobb, who is also an 'Equity in Computing' don at Georgia Tech, wrote a 2007 blog post, which remains on his website, titled: 'If I Were A Jew.'

Bobb writes: 'If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself. Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering of others.'


This is not "Kamau Bobb the guy in charge of sandwiches at Google" okay? This is "Kamau Bobb, Google's head of diversity strategy." He's the guy who puts the "J" in SJW. Here's some more of what he wrote, published in the Daily Mail:

In his 14-year-old blog post, Bobb wrote: 'Suffering and oppression typically give rise to sympathy and compassion among the oppressed ... I would conclude that my Jewish faith and the history of my people render me closer to human compassion; closer to the instinct to offer healing to hurt, patience to anxiety and understanding to confusion.

'I don't know how I would reconcile that identity with the behavior of fundamentalist Jewish extremists or of Israel as a nation ...

'I wouldn't understand those who suggest that bombing Lebanon, slaughtering Lebanese people and largely destroying Beirut in retaliation for the capture of a few soldiers is justified.

'I wouldn't understand the notion of collective punishment, cutting off gas, electricity and water from residents in Gaza because they are attacking Israel who is fighting against them.

'It would be unconscionable to me to watch Israeli tanks donning the Star of David rumbling through Ramallah destroying buildings and breaking the glass.' 

The essay concludes with the paragraph: 'If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself. Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering others. My greatest torment would be that I've misinterpreted the identity offered by my history and transposed spiritual and human compassion with self righteous impunity.'

If it seems a bit much to be dredging up 14 year old blog posts to slam this guy, I kind of agree. They've been sitting there on his blog for a long time, where was all the outrage back then?

But then I remember stuff like people getting fired over Halloween costume pics from the 1980s, I remember Jenna Marbles being chased off the internet for "blackface" when it was just a friggin' makeup video, I remember director James Gunn getting fired from Guardians of the Galaxy over 14 year old tweets. And I remember Justin Trudeau being caught doing -actual- blackface 40 times and getting a free pass from the media because he's Justin Trudeau.

So no. It's not too much anymore. New Rules are a bitch, boys. The friggin' Diversity Tzar of Google wrote "If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing" and he left it on there for 14 years. If James Gunn can be fired for a joke, this asshole can be fired too.

Update: It seems Google is a little gun-shy. Mr. Kamau Bobb is FIRED today.

Google removed the head of its diversity team after a blog post about Jewish people resurfaced.

Kamau Bobb, whose LinkedIn page says he has been in the position since September 2018, "will no longer be part of [Google's] diversity team going forward," a Google spokesperson told the Washington Examiner on Thursday.

His removal, though he will remain with the company and focus on STEM work, came days after the blog post titled "If I were a Jew" resurfaced, though it has since been deleted.

 

Yeah, FIRED! Buuut not really "fired", right? More like moved sideways until the uproar dies down. "We're sorry you wingnuts were offended by this totally reasonable thing our guy wrote."

Still, I'll take it. Every time one of these pricks gets cancelled, all the SJWs feel the Breath of Righteousness on the backs of their necks. That little zing of fear that someday their very own Cancel Machine might pick them.

If they really believe that might happen, the Cancel Machine will get put back in the garage and we won't see it again.

"SHUT UP NERDS!!!" they explained.

Today in nerd hatred, we have the Netflix announcement that the character Death in their TV series of Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" graphic novel will be played by Kirby Howell-Baptiste, a black woman. Oh, and they listed all the actors' pronouns too, to be absolutely sure we all knew there was a non-conforming gender actor in there. There is a controversy over this, because the character of Death in the graphic novels is depicted as a white Goth woman. Fans of the graphic novel have voiced their opinions on this casting choice, which range from unctuous and fulsome approval to serious disapproval.

(English speakers with a classical education will understand that "unctuous and fulsome" implies dishonesty and sucking up, just to be clear for you people who got ripped off by your teachers back in the day.)

Now, I must say at the outset that I do not care. I have not read The Sandman. I think I looked through it when it first came out in 1987, decided it was SJW trash and passed hard. Over the years it has generally been my opinion that Neil Gaiman writes stories in a way that I find intensely annoying, he is not well represented in my library.

Therefore, I can't offer an informed opinion of Ms. Howell-Babptiste's fit as the character Death, and on the whole I really don't care. It is most unlikely I will watch it if there's anything else on.

However, that is not what this post is about.

Comic book lovers will recall the Fantastic Four reboot. They cast Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, and the internet came alive with people like me predicting the movie would suck. And it did! The FF reboot movie could suck a golf ball through a garden hose. What was interesting at the time was the number of media people screaming "RAAAAACIST!!!1!" whenever anyone would object. 
 
We were all called sexist for saying Dr. Who would suck when they made the Doctor a woman. (It did suck.) 
 
But in the same breath, all the SJWs -demanding- that Iron Fist must cast an Asian as Danny Rand, or that Dr. Who must be black were brave fighters for social justice. 
 
As it happened Iron Fist and Dr. Who sucked anyway, but not because of them casting white actors to play white characters.

What this post is about is that one more time, comic book fans are not allowed to have an opinion. If you think that you want to see the Neil Gaiman version, with casting that reflects what he did in the comics, then you are a racist and you need to shut up before somebody shuts you up.

Sorry. Nerds have opinions. We're not about to shut up. Go ahead and try to make us, see what happens.

My prediction on The Sandman by Netflix? It will probably suck. Whenever the studio stars fucking with the story by using the casting as a vehicle for virtue signalling, that's a bad sign.
