Centipede Women


I never knew centipede women was even a thing, but apparently it is a thing.  Centipedes are interesting insects and do get a undeserved bad rap.

Centipede Cartoons






Human Centipede (has to be one of the stupidest movies ever)

On the bright side, Alyssa seems a little better now than when Ossoff ended up not prevailing in the primary (having to go to a run off):

The media gets excited over van attack in London, but ignores an illegal alien killing a Muslim girl in Virginia: Why?

Legal Insurrection: Road Rage, not Hate Crime
He didn't hate Muslims, apparently, he just hates teenage pedestrian girls who get in his way...

Meanwhile the media is obsessed about a British white guy who plowed his van into a group of Muslims leaving a mosque in London.  Which appears to be a reverse copy cat crime of the attack that occurred about a week before in London. He is facing terrorism charges (as well as a host of other charges I am sure). 






Conservative Tree House: One of President Obama's unaccompanied illegal aliens kills an American Muslim girl

Of course we know why the media does what it does. The Virginia attack does not fit the media's carefully crafted narrative and expectations about illegal immigrants. The London attack bolsters the media's own biases about white rage.

Aren't both attacks bad and news worthy?

Song of the Cicada

Cicada Songs are a song of love... and sometimes distress

Some don't like cicadas, but I find them fascinating. I like the sound they make. It reminds me of past springs and summers and makes me be in the moment when I hear them.    


Brood VI in Wisconsin and beyond, as well as Brood X stragglers

EBL: Cicadas, by the billions, burst out of Chris Christie's belly and swarm New Jersey and the Sound of Kushner

While it really is 17 years between swarms (for most cicadas in the eastern half of North America), there are a few that come out early and late.  Plus different swarms can overlap ranges, making it seem like the cicadas come at a more frequent cycle.  Makes sense genetically and biologically, you want different swarms just in case one gets wiped out.


Should the Right adopt the tactics of the Left?

There is a debate about this.  Some like John Sexton, Andrew Klavan, and Donald Douglas think adopting leftist tactics is wrong (Donald has strong feelings about it). John Podhoretz goes so far to call protesters at Julius Caesar "animals" who are destroying the country! Wow, protesting at a play is 'destroying the country,' Podhoretz is getting as 'excitable' as Andrew Sullivan used to do.
I have zero problem with people's free speech rights, free speech by its very nature means protecting offensive free speech you disagree with. I really do not want to shut down the left's free speech. I just have a real problem with them shutting down my rights. So while I acknowledge the opinions of Messieurs Sexton, Klavan, Douglas, and Podhoretz and take them very seriously (well except for Podhoretz's over the top reaction), I respectfully disagree. In my opinion, some 'uncivil' push back is warranted. Civil disobedience, when done properly, is ok.

Now Shakespeare in the Park has the right to present Julius Caesar anyway it wants. I personally think having a play depicting any living President getting murdered is inappropriate, but that's me. The producers and director made the artistic decision to depict Julius Caesar as Trump to make a political point. They absolutely have a free speech right to do so.

It was artistic smugness that prompted the Hamilton cast to call out Mike Pence in the audience (wasn't that wrong, in context).  I am a fan of the play Hamilton, even if I have not had the opportunity to see it three times like Podhoretz. No one disputes the rights of anyone to tell Mike Pence what they think (has some of the Hamilton cast members invited the VP for a discussion after the show I would have been fine with it--I just though the way they did so from the stage was rude as hell. To his credit, Steven Van Zant thought what the Hamilton cast did to Pence was inappropriate and called them out for doing that (good for him).


If protests shut Julius Caesar down completely--preventing the show from going on, Andrew Klavan would have a stronger point. They didn't. They disrupted the play for a few minutes and the show went on.  I suspect people will get over it. Yes it was a publicity stunt, that was the intent.

So I have no problem with protesters acting up during a single performance of a play to make a point. Was it effective?  We are talking about it, to that extent it was effective. They did not act violently, or call in a bomb scare, or endanger anyone--they just disrupted a performance.

As Andrew Breitbart used to say, "So?"  BTW, remember when Rolling Stone's Mike Taibbi gloated about Andrew's death? A lot of people in the arts and media are contemptible. I have zero sympathy for their sensibilities because they have zero sympathy for us. And I really do not want to suppress their rights--but I will not tolerate what they are doing to us and our rights.


When the fight is unilateral and the left think they can shut down any dissent on college campuses (college campuses are the front line in the free speech wars, but it is expanding beyond that), the time has come to fight back. They admit they want to "weed out" dissenters. At Evergreeen, for example, if you chalk "Make Limp Bizkit Great Again" they will come after you will baseball bats. And the campus administration will do little to protect your free speech rights (they are barely holding it together).

Ace makes the case for emulating the tactics of the left. I fully concur with this--and I would go beyond just boycotts and advertising pressure (although that should be part of it). Any protests should be peaceful, of course--with wit and humor whenever possible. But, as Glenn Reynolds says, let them feel what its like to have their hair pulled.

John Sexton, while not a fan of the play disrupting tactics, also recognized why something like this might be for the greater good:
I don’t support interrupting performances of Shakespeare. I also don’t think the play is a threat except in the nebulous “climate of hate” sense which the left trots out whenever they find it helpful to blame the right. However, maybe this protest will do some good if it causes people on the left to realize where this is headed. This is your politics, progressives. Can you see now how this is a bad idea? If so then, start by addressing the problem at the source: Your own backyard. 
The purpose of doing this is not to promote disrupting free speech, but to make clear the right will fight back against such tactics. With the left flirting with Trumpicide, some protest push back seems warranted. We do have to be smart about that sort of resistance. And if a tactic turns out to be counter productive, stop using it and try something else.


I love the guerrilla street art stuff Sabo is doing in Los Angeles. I want to see more protests/actions like that. 
SABO: I believe the Right has a great message, sadly the only people telling it are those on the Left and they do a damn fine job making us look like ass holes and what do Republicans do about it, NOT A DAMN THING!!! Fuck it! I guess it’s just going to have to be me, I thought. My aim as an artist is to be as dirty, ground level, and mean as any Liberal artist out there, more so if I can. Use their tactics, their methods, appeal to their audience, the young, urban , street urchins with a message they never hear in a style they own. My name is SABO, I'm an UNSAVORYAGENT.



Legal Insurrection: To disrupt or not disrupt, that is the question (his readers are voting 3:1 for the right engaging in more disrupting).
