Breitbart News, fiery conservative outlet buoyed by Trump victory, aims to go global

  1. At first, the site started by Andrew Breitbart was a simple news aggregation service. But in a few short years it evolved into an idiosyncratic voice combining original reporting, incendiary commentary and outright trolling, in keeping with the rambunctious spirit of its founder, who died in 2012...

    We are now being spoon fed a narrative where Milo is simply engaged in satire and provocation.

    Gotta love the normalization of the unacceptable and the successful rebranding of white supremacy in the 21st century..

    Interesting, since I don't think they're bringing anything new to the table ... after all, white supremacism is rooted in Europe, isn't it? Somehow, I don't think their schtick is going to go over all that well elsewhere.

    They're not so much going global as they are going home. The generation before me ... those who fought the Second World War and largely dead now ... must be spinning in their graves.

    What I don't understand about white supremacists etc is the disconnect or pathology they have. It's almost like a schizophrenic response. People ONLY ever hate things they are afraid of! Most phobia operate on those principles. To my understanding, I would hate to admit that I am afraid of something because my method is always comprehension which then lessens the fear response. These big macho men who show off at every opportunity are afraid of these black people who when they controlled them were simply slaves etc but when economics and morality intervene, out go their Bible which was of course used to control us women and others and out comes the sheets of the KKK. Make no bones about it but as much as I love MEN, I also have a good helping of disdain for them. The most important person in my life is my father because he has never let me down ever. He's secure enough to see me as an individual first and a daughter and woman last.

    KKK and Brietbart types are cowards!!! They are also weak and insipid and to be used for what they are worth but never listened to because fearful people are always compromised. Tall women use to intimidate me to the point of me rubbishing them to make myself feel better, until my Dad intervened. Said I should simply ask them a few questions to establish their intelligence, knowing full well that only more intelligent people than myself would intimidate me. Problem solved. The only difference between all people is the use of grey matter and of course now finding out that my ancestors likely possessed Neanderthal genes whereas Africans are likely more human than us all because of no gene mixing.

    Imagine that, we are actually more ape like than the people who my race try to denigrate as ape like. But men of all races are equally as bad as each other. Rwanda, Cambodia, Germany, Soviet Union, Yugoslavia. Everywhere, black white and brown, all men commiting atrocities. Women are simply stronger in every department because my Dad says so. We always resort to using our brains to problem solve instead of testosterone!
