We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

A tweet thread goes viral because it strikes a chord

This is quite interesting, Tucker Carlson reading Darryl Cooper’s thread on twitter.

Same video on YouTube if you have technical issues. But it is unwise to rely on YouTube for entirely political reasons, hence the BitChute upload ‘just in case’.

    The YouTube version of the video has 2916 views after 5 days.

  • I also don’t know for sure that the Presidential election that Biden “won” was fraudulent or not. But I now think it probably was, for all the reasons stated in this video.

    The good news is that the world’s political systems, certainly the British and American systems, are in the midst of a realignment. And, politics is always at is most vicious and partisan at the start of each period of alignment. I’ve just been reading about the realignment that happened around 1910. Savage, by all accounts.

    This has been posted by many others, so it is just *this* upload that has 2916 views when you looked.

  • Here is a posting I did on my personal blog just after the Presidential election, which I believe is pertinent to all this. It’s about how Democrat cheating is nothing new, but why such cheating now matters more than it used to.

    I didn’t post it here, because I was even then suffering from Stage 4 lung cancer, as yet undiagnosed, and felt bloody ill, and was in no state to perfect the piece and make it Samizdata-ready, let along argue about any of it. But I now think it reads quite well.

    Brian, your piece from last November chimes with an interview I read recently between NPR and the Democratic political analyst David Shor called “Latino Voters Are Leaving The Democratic Party”. (You may recall that Shor was the guy sacked for expressing the heresy that historically peaceful protests by black Americans had worked better than non-peaceful ones.) In this interview he says,

    But I think there’s a real point, which is that the big thing that Donald Trump did is he created these large coalitional shifts, you know, in 2016 among noncollege whites, and in 2020 among noncollege nonwhites toward the Republican Party and kind of pushed, you know, college-educated voters toward the Democratic Party.

  • I watched the entirety of the video posted above and found it hard to disagree with any of it.

    The question here in the USA, then becomes, what is to be done? It has recently become stated fact that the White House and its controllers are TELLING Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, et al, what “disinformation” to censor and block. I now go to Samizdata and Sky News Australia to find out what is happening in my own country. On Facebook, all I see is slobbering adulation of the Left and its goals, from CRT, the Green New Deal, Climate Change, and every other trope. Has everyone here gone mad? Or has every dissenting voice been silenced? I think the goal is to make those who challenge the Narrative to feel isolated and hopeless. There’s even a push to monitor private text messages to suppress that same “disinformation” from becoming widespread knowledge. It’s looking grim.

    George Atkisson: “Has everyone here gone mad?”

    I think a large fraction of the population has gone insane. But then they have been subjected to very sophisticated psychological torture over the last year or so.

    This morning in my group conference, the topic of COVID came up, and the MSM are regurgitating that old trope of rising cases and the need for extra mortuary capacity.

    This is exactly the same drivel ( BBC 2020 ) as last year. I do have a reservation, though. This year, given the rising mortality from adverse effects of COVID-19 vaccination, they may well need the extra capacity.

    But it’ll be dressed up as the fourth wave, and a direct result of Johnsons reckless relaxation of restrictions.

    The changes to election laws made by certain Governors were indeed illegal – as only State Legislatures can change election laws, and they did not do so.

    This was put to the courts (both State and Federal) BEFORE the election – so the “Trump only complained afterwards” line of the left media is false. But the courts failed to do anything. Such people as Chief Justice Roberts of the Supreme Court of the United States BROKE THEIR OATH.

    I have worked in British elections since 1979 – even when I was suspended by my political party (for saying the wrong thing) I still had to be at the count in 2019 because I was the Election Agent, it was my name on the legal documents.

    If someone had produced a lot of “postal votes” (as we call them in the United Kingdom) with no proper identification that the votes were from actual voters, I would have laughed at them, and then had them arrested.

    In 2020 I WATCHED (via mobile telephone technology) Trump poll watchers (registered as such) being denied access to counting centres in key American cities – places known for past ELECTION FRAUD. Or being removed, by force, by corrupt local security in these cities.

    Anyone who tells me that the 2020 United States Presidential Election was not rigged is someone I will cut off all contact with – such people are dead to me.

    Both. A large percentage of Americans have gone mad. Most of the rest have gone silent.

    Precisely.
