matt w asked: It’s a LEGO minifigure of a Conquistador. The blurb ends “Fortunately, he’s heard about this newly-discovered place called the Aztec Empire. He figures he’ll stop by there next and see if they’ve got any gold they don’t mind sparing!”
Yeah, nothing funnier than violently destroying a fucking civilization. Hey LEGO, GO FUCK YOURSELFS YOU RACIST FUCKS.
By adding the word ‘white’, moreover, the ‘working class’ becomes de-odorised, neutralised, cleansed of menacing cadences of militancy and leftism. It becomes an object of pathos and melancholia, inherently reactionary, and typified by the middle aged white male emoting about family and country, and probably organising one of the mythical millions of street parties to erupt in spontaneous planned celebration over the royal wedding next week. This sort of ‘working class’ is tame, dull, conformist, and deferential, but also vicious, sadistic, and vindictive. It is in this, and so many other ways, the ideal alibi for the Blairites.
Senator Chuck Grassley takes a break from tweeting like a twelve-year old to share some stunningly un-self-aware political wisdom
Some Newsweek writer got really mad and blocked me on Twitter because I called out his bombastic article about him “infiltrating” on a bunch of “radical Islamic” Facebook pages. I don’t even think it’s that bad of an article — and he clearly knows something about the terrorism beat — it’s just really hysterically written. Money quotes:
“I would spend seven days creeping through the Internet using disposable IP addresses, inhabiting the milieu of radical sites and Facebook pages.”
“I took to squinting at my laptop, deliberately blurring my vision; when the fuzzy contours of a child appeared, I jerked my head away from the screen and kept scrolling. But when my eyes returned, another lifeless kid was always waiting for me.”
“The horror,” cried Kurtz as summoned the strength to type “I WISH THERE WAS A DIS-LIKE BUTTON” on the I Think Terrorism Is Cool Facebook group.

He responded in an email to The Tennessean: “No I did not Twitter this … no I did not create this picture … yes I shared it … so why am I being singled out?”
