United States to Ban TikTok

Unfortunately TikTok is once again at the forefront of discussion in America. Lawmakers are considering banning the app in the United States under the assumption that it is a National Security Risk and it is already forbidden from being on the phones of Federal Employees. The biggest supporters of this legislation are Republicans who are generally more skeptical of China as a foreign adversary and since TikTok is owned by a Chinese company called ByteDance Ltd. naturally concerns arise over the potential for data collection. A bi-partisan bill passed the House of Representatives which would effectively ban TikTok, but lawmakers say that if TikTok was sold to an American citizen, users could continue using the app.

There are rumors floating around about who would be the most likely to purchase TikTok but that remains unclear and it is speculation for now. Data collection and the manipulation of public opinion is not something that is only done by Chinese social media companies. US-based social media companies have the ability to lobby these politicians and get them to turn a blind eye to their election manipulation and data collection. I also can’t help but get a bit schizo and think that these news stories as well as the political attention given to TikTok are to distract from this.

South Dakota Passes “Antisemitism Bill”

In the news this week is that the Governor of South Dakota passed legislation to “take on the scourge antisemitism”. What some people on the “far-right” did was see this clip and then immediately proclaim that the 1st Amendment is destroyed in South Dakota. Something similar to this happened in Florida and it resulted in the same response. Of course it is my job to give you the facts and I have dug up the text of the bill itself. It reads as follows:

Section 1. That chapter 20-13 be amended with a NEW SECTION:
It is a violation of this chapter if any adverse or unequal treatment prohibited by this chapter is antisemitic.

In reviewing, investigating, or deciding whether an alleged violation of this chapter is antisemitic, the Division of Human Rights must consider the definition of antisemitism. For the purposes of this chapter, the term “antisemitism” means a certain perception of Jews that may be expressed as hatred toward Jews, including rhetorical and physical acts of antisemitism directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals or their property, or toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

Nothing in this section may be construed to diminish or infringe upon any protected right under U.S. Const., amend. I or S.D. Const., Art. VI, § 5, or to conflict with any federal, state, or local discrimination law.

HB 1076

To understand this amendment and what it amends one has to read Chapter 20-13. The reality is that this amendment does not restrict freedom of speech, it adds a definition for discrimination that was already illegal. Discrimination in housing/employment/public accommodation based on “race, color, creed, religion, sex, ancestry, disability, or national origin accords” was already forbidden in Chapter 20-13, and what this piece of legislation does is just create a definition by which some kind of discrimination can be defined as “antisemitic”. Ultimately this legislation is a performative action done by Kristi Noem to try to gather more campaign funds from AIPAC. That is why she mentions the Palestine-Israel conflict, and that is the ultimate purpose of her passing this bill. I am of course against all forms of anti-discrimination laws, but its important to realize that what this bill does not do is restrict freedom of speech.

Haitian Civil Unrest Leads to Reports of Cannibalism

This week it seems that we have two stories involving unsightly black behavior. The difference is that this one is on a national scale. Haiti has erupted in social unrest and because of this I personally have had the displeasure of seeing some horrific videos. One of which featured a spit-roast of a black person slowly rotating over a fire. It was a video of a man-made horror that I would have gladly gone my whole life without seeing but one can’t expect much from the internet.

The civil unrest has gotten so uncontrollable that the Prime Minister of Haiti has announced his resignation. Armed gangs are roaming the streets and apparently the leader’s name is Barbecue. A fitting name given the videos that I have seen. Haiti has had a particularly long history of violence ever since the Haitian Revolution. For those who are unaware I will provide a brief summary. A slave revolt began in 1791 and lasted until 1804 which resulted in a massacre of all of the White people on the island that were unable to flee. Here is a notable quote from that time:

“For our declaration of independence, we should have the skin of a white man for parchment, his skull for an inkwell, his blood for ink, and a bayonet for a pen!”

Dessalines’ secretary Boisrond-Tonnerre

Haiti has had no hope of creating a civilized society for as long as anyone currently living there can remember. Civil unrest can flare up at a moments notice in Haiti, and Haitians are generally disliked anywhere they go. Here is one video that I can share that doesn’t contain any gore but it does show the state of poverty that Haitians are in since the massacre in 1804. The average cognitive ability of Haitians is also remarkably low with estimated IQ scores being below 70 according to data cited here. That is over 30 points away from the average cognitive ability of people of European descent and it is far below what is needed to maintain a civilized society. No amount of money from international sources will make Haiti a civilized place and it should be concerning to anyone reading this that Haitians are allowed to become citizens in Western countries.

Andrew and Tristan Tate Were Arrested Again

In what turns out to be a rare UK government W, Andrew and Tristan Tate were arrested in Romania on UK warrants. The warrants are alleging rape and sex trafficking which comes shortly after his homes were raided in Romania in 2022. The charges that are coming from the UK were originally thought to be related to a UK case in 2015, however I have realized after some digging that these are apparently new charges with completely different women.

It is well known that Andrew Tate used to be involved in operating a business that marketed cam girls. The sex trafficking charges are allegedly connected to this as some of the women are saying that they were forced to do things against their will and a large portion of Andrew Tate’s initial rise in financial success came from operating this business. In my view one of the most despicable things that Andrew Tate has done is convert to Islam and impressionable young men that look up to Andrew Tate are then desensitized to the Islamic invasion of Western countries. From Andrew Tate they get a view of Islam as being “trad” and “based”. Under any news story related to Andrew Tate you see tons of arabs supporting him and the prospect that some young White men look up to him is disgusting. Andrew Tate converting to Islam isn’t surprising when you consider that the Ottoman Empire regularly took European women as sex slaves and the exploitation of European women by arabs continues to this day. I hope they bury him under the prison and throw away the key.

Belgian Politician Jailed Over Spicy Memes

A lesson in opsec (operational security) comes to us from Belgium. The story reads as follows:

A key figure in the Belgian far right was sentenced Tuesday morning to a year in prison and handed a heavy fine.

Dries Van Langenhove, a political activist and leader of a Flemish-nationalist youth movement called Schild & Vrienden, was convicted of inciting violence and denying the Holocaust, the Ghent criminal court ruled Tuesday morning.
A 2018 TV report by public broadcaster VRT showed that members of the group were exchanging racist and antisemitic messages in group chats, triggering a judicial investigation into the movement.

Politico

This judgement comes shortly after Sam Melia’s sentencing. This year we are seeing quite the uptick in the persecution of Nationalist figures for their speech. This is the perfect opportunity to discuss opsec and to stress the importance of secure communications. The first step is becoming aware of various laws regarding speech in your jurisdiction. Indeed the first step is what comes out of your own mouth, or what you type into a computer. If nothing is said that is illegal than you avoid this whole thing altogether from the start. This will work reasonably well for most people who are not politically active and simply want to have a prosperous family that is not being harassed by a tyrannical Western State. For those who are politically active the next step is to think about who your main adversaries are. Identifying your main adversaries allows you to develop counter-surveillance strategies tailored to your specific needs.

To expand on this I will list 2 different scenarios. Scenario 1 is that you are wanting to send a message to your mother that says “happy mothers day”. This is not illegal speech nor is it taboo speech and therefore there is no adversary that you should worry about intercepting this message. Scenario 2 is that you live in a country where holocaust denial is illegal and you want to send a spicy meme which does exactly that. In scenario 2 your adversary is the state and thus your counter-surveillance strategy should be vastly different from Scenario 1. Know your enemy and plan accordingly.

In the digital world we should assume that anything posted on public social media is permanent. Many archiving tools exist that snapshot webpages and store them forever (https://archive.today , https://web.archive.org), so even if you delete that spicy Twitter post it may remain viewable. The platform that Dries Van Langenhove used to communicate with members of his youth movement is not mentioned in this news article. However it is very likely that if a more secure platform was used he would not be heading to prison for a year. Secure platforms typically use some kind of end-to-end encryption which uses an algorithm to make message contents only accessible to those sending and receiving the messages. Many of these platforms that use e2e encryption also have the ability to have group chats. I will now link a site which goes extensively into best practices and lists lots of great software.

Privacy Guides
https://www.privacyguides.org/en/

Whether you are a politically inactive person or someone that is highly prominent, everyone can benefit from implementing at least one of the things discussed on that website. If you are someone who is highly knowledgeable in this field you may even learn a thing or two that you had not considered by checking out that site.

I highly recommend for everyone to take their online privacy seriously. As the instability of Western countries increases we can expect the state to get more tyrannical, that means that this knowledge will only get more useful.

Police Shoot Engineer and Gardener!

Another day in America, and another black criminal is shot by police. The media is already seizing this opportunity to gin up as much animosity as possible by portraying this person as a mentally disabled aspiring engineer. Some choice quotes from this article:

A sheriff’s deputy in southern California shot and killed a 15-year-old boy who was holding a gardening tool, officials said.
The department said he was holding a 5ft gardening tool..
A lawyer for the family said Gainer was a cross-country runner who had autism..
Gainer then appeared and started quickly walking out of the home toward the deputy..
Gainer appeared to be holding the tool over his head, but it is unclear what he was doing as he was shot.
In addition to his involvement on a cross-country team, Gainer also wanted to be an engineer, Lacy said.

The Guardian

There you have it, a law enforcement officer upholding a systemically racist system shot a mentally disabled gardener that aspired to be an engineer. We should dispense with police entirely and allow blacks to attack their own family members. Surely you can tell that I was being sarcastic. An important detail to include in this instance is the legal definition of a “deadly weapon”.

Deadly Weapon
any weapon which can kill. This includes not only weapons which are intended to do harm like a gun or knife, but also blunt instruments like clubs, baseball bats, monkey wrenches, an automobile or any object which actually causes death.

Law.com

According to this definition the police officer was attacked with a deadly weapon and the legal response to this is to respond with deadly force. When I think about this situation I imagine myself being attacked with a 5ft long garden tool by a delusional black person. The first option is to attempt to doge the attack, this attempt may fail and leave me unconscious below this person’s feet. The other option is to attempt to stop the attack by any means necessary. In my mind there is no appropriate response besides the latter option. I am no fan of American law enforcement officers for a variety of reasons but this event is not one of them.

“Here is one video that I can share that doesn’t contain any gore but it does show the state of poverty that Haitians are in since the massacre in 1804”

Was there supposed to be a link there? Good article

Thanks God there was not!
I do believe a law similar to the one in South Dakota was voted in Frogland a fortnight ago.
I cannot find the link anymore sorry. But I know that country very well and similar laws are already in effect.
