As Tyler Durden, one-half of Fight Club’s protagonist’s split personality, profoundly (albeit crassly) noted, “sticking feathers in your butt does not make you a chicken.”

In the same way, NIKE© shoe gimmicks (retailing for $1,018), Satan-themed music videos and gay make-out sessions at award shows don’t make one a cutting-edge artist — at least not in America, not in 2021.

Cultures are not static; they have trajectories.

It’s so non-edgy to be gender non-conforming in the modern era, in fact, that the only way to generate controversy (and, as a result, desperately needed publicity) for yourself is to continually up…

*The initial reporting misstated the date of the Wi Spa incident in question as “summer 2021” when it allegedly occurred in January 2020, not to be confused with the more recent summer 2021 event that sparked protests.

“They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.”

-Ezekiel 16:50

The Bible warned of what becomes of cities that somehow stoop so low as to tolerate — or even celebrate — the ritualized sexualization of children, metaphorical or otherwise.

Could there be a greater sin? Even…

Rapper Juvenile Releases ‘Vax That Thang Up’ Propaganda Remix, Destroys Millennials’ Childhood Rap Memories

Data from Big Pharma indicates that less than half of the US black and Hispanic population has submitted to the gene therapy thus far. To remedy this situation, the “vaxx-them-all” corporate media continues to dredge up rap fossils to pander to racial minorities.

Most people under 30 probably don’t even know who Juvenile is. …

NOFX, Dig

No matter how you slice the pie, nor whatever ideological analytical slant you apply, the modern Western lifestyle is a cancerous hodgepodge of mindless consumerism, performative social virtue signaling, public school indoctrination, and innumerable environmental toxins found in everything from Maybe She’s Born With It Maybelline© cosmetics to hydrogenated soybean oil-laden Funyuns© chips — all of which conspire to rip to shreds the fabric of society.

The great struggle of the 21st century is not…

As Aldous Huxley laid out in excruciating detail in his seminal novel Brave New World, the totalitarian state of tomorrow will prop itself up not by brute force of the type seen in Orwell’s 1984, but rather via social conditioning and a pharmacological social control tool called medicalization:

“Medicalization can be defined as the process by which some aspects of human life come to be considered as medical problems, whereas before they were not considered pathological.”

Toxic masculinity, white fragility, five distinct classes of anxiety disorders, 7 classes of depression, “gender dysphoria” even in…

Let’s un-muddy the dank drug waters of SE Asia with a simple rule of thumb: Remember where you are, which is the jungle, literally and metaphorically.

Welcome to it.

With its tropical brush and pearl-white resorts of promotional tourism advertising fame, the bustling southern Thailand tourist hotspot of Phuket looks like Shangri-la. Some of the world’s elite, most-photographed beaches are within a 100-mile radius.

Things are not as they appear; all is not as utopian as it seems. The…

“America was reborn on the 4th of July at Mount Rushmore. The spiritual energy was enormous. The critical outcome is that the public is now rejecting the two-party tyranny that fronts for the Deep State; we are going to organize 200 million voters with a new national network, 99vs1, that will end the ability of bribed and blackmailed officials to get away with constant daily betrayal of the public trust.”

‘Vaxx-Them-All’ Goon Squad Now Blaming Racism, Russians for ‘Vaccine Hesitancy’

Much to the chagrin of the ruling class, despite their best efforts for over half of a year, an uncooperative 25% percent of the American proletariat still refuses to submit to the “vaccine” agenda.

Just like any analyst familiar with their keep-it-stupid-simple modus operandi would expect them to, the neoliberal media goon squad has turned, as it inevitably does, to old-fashioned Russophobia and race-baiting once their agenda hit a brick wall.
