Quote of the day from former white supremacist!

From here:

The reason I became a racist is that I felt abandoned by my parents and because they were immigrants working seven days a week, 14 hours a day, and I thought what did I do to push them away? I wasn’t mature enough, and I got recruited when I was 14, and in order to keep that family and get an identity … there were all sorts of issues with identity crisis there were massive abandonment issues; at a young age, I started getting depressed and eventually I started projecting that self-hatred onto other people because it was the only way I could feel better about myself. It doesn’t matter if you’re dirt poor, or if you’re from a Jewish family—if the conditions are right, it’s really easy for someone to swoop in and identify you, whether it’s the Islamic State or a Neo-Nazi or a gang leader or anyone who is trying to manipulate you based on your fears or your isolation, or you trying to find out who you are.

This is why the NY Times blows dogs — the head of Saudi Arabia is an ill bitch f*ckface

From the New York Times:

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is attempting to transform his country. The West shouldn’t undermine him.

Mohammed bin Salman is a fucking war criminal for what he has done in Yemen and he’s a piece of shit in his own country.

Fuck him and the Rolls Royce he rode in on.

Music for 8/13/18!!! Leon Vynehall, Arp, Sophie

@@@ Leon Vynehall: Nothing is Still (Ninja Tune, 2018) All three of these electronic tracks are off an email where the really great audio software company Izotope recommended 6 of their favorite electronic records of the year. I really love great electronic and ambient music but I’m very picky about the sounds I like. This first tune is spacious with some plinky, space traveller bleeps and a couple of slow moving clouds moving at a relaxed pace. There is an orchestral melodic swell that builds under the ambient plinks. The second tune evokes a jazz motif with a trumpet patch and an upright bass patch, both swizzled and fuzzed up for the kids today. There’s a beat, just simple titch but it brings the piece into a different space. I like this though it doesn’t move much after it establishes itself. I sampled (pun alert!) a bit of the fourth and fifth tracks and it’s solid business. If it was a bit more abstract I would be all over it.

@@@ Arp: Zebra (Mexican Summer, 2018) This first tune opens up with some fluffy exhortations, a simple marimba melody, a fusion-y jazz bass and a periodic acoustic guitar strum. Not some of my favorite sounds as they all come together for a sweet New Age salsa and I’m not an eater of that flavor. The marimba makes an appearance at the opening of the second tune (as well as the bass sound) and this is aiming for a more playful and light space jazz kinda journey. I’m good with space jazz and I will recommend Alice Coltrane all day long to whoever will listen but this is not my cup of sounds.

@@@ SOPHIE: Ponyboy (MSMSMSMS/Future Classic, 2018). Glitchy, giddy and gorgeous — that is the blurb on Apple Music. This is deeply female music businss with line like it’s okay to cry and other such beauteous sentiments in the first tune. Surprisingly it has a little bit of Prince funk. The second tune, Ponyboy, is a electronic funk throwdown still with Prince flavors which I dig. I like a bunch of the sounds but not all of them, I like the adventurousness of the tunes, but I’m not a huge fan of her voice and her lyrics. Others may totally be into her. I’m pretty dead inside.

One of America’s most powerful Christians is a hypocritical bullshit artist

From the Daily Beast here:

Recently, some of Vice President Mike Pence’s essays from the 1990s resurfaced, in which he made the case for a moral president and suggested that a lascivious president with a penchant for lying should resign or be impeached.

Oh my, let’s just let that smelly Pence fart sit out there and stink with the rank and rotten hypocrisy it’s loaded with.

Phew.

Oy, the irony of racist bald shitbird Stephen Miller being an immigrant Jew!

From Politico here.

You have to go read the article as I can’t find a good excerpt that explains the gist of the story.

I will summarize — the little shriveled up punk ass cunt Stephen Miller is an Eastern European Jew!  A self hating Jew and an immigrant hater.  Twisting the racist fears and bullshit of Americans for political gain.

Hopefully he dies soon and when he does I think he’ll be on one side of Satan with Trump and then Bush/Cheney will be on the other side of Satan.  They will play cards for eternity but it’s gonna be hot.

Somebody tell the Proud Boys that the puppet master is a self hating Jew!

You can’t make this shit up.  Big shout to my friend Daniel for sending me this link, what a glorious way to start the week.

Oh the idealistic and forward looking DNC/centrist Democratic Party!

From Truthout here:

Just two months after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was celebrated by environmentalists for banning donations from fossil fuel companies, it voted 30-2 on Friday to adopt a resolution from Chair Tom Perez that critics said effectively reverses the ban and represents “an absolute failure by the DNC.”

Great job fellas.
