My Little Pony fans have had a Nazi problem for a long time. ...Weird. This article appears to be serious. I could also imagine it on a humor site.
What’s clearest from talking with those on either side of the argument is that the My Little Pony fandom has developed a totally nonsensical hodgepodge of values. Many fans who specifically support Black Lives Matter, for example, are also fans of Aryanne, a fan-invented Nazi pony with a pink swastika on her hip. They do not acknowledge a contradiction.
I am not even sure that any Nazis exist today. There are a couple of sites that joke about being Nazis, but that is just because they figure that they are going to be called Nazis anyway. There are other sites that use Nazis symbols just to get attention or to annoy people. But none of these are Nazis.
Princeton University has memory-holed Woodrow Wilson, its former college president. The NY Times article does not mention that he was the former president of the college, or that many conservatives consider him to be the worst US president of the XX century. The current PU president cited the death of George Floyd, and the NY Central Park argument between the White Karen and the Black birder.
The UK Labour Party’s “antisemitism crisis” has claimed another victim, as shadow education secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey is fired for sharing an article containing a so-called “antisemitic conspiracy theory.” ...In other words, she was fired for telling the truth. It is true that Minnesota cops received Israeli training on restraining the neck. Whether this directly influenced Derek Chauvin, we haven't been told.
Long-Bailey shared an Independent interview with Maxine Peake on Twitter. In it, the actress says: “The tactics used by the police in America, kneeling on George Floyd’s neck, that was learnt from seminars with Israeli secret services.” It was later updated to include a denial by the Israeli police that this is the case, and a reference to an Amnesty International report about US law enforcement travel to Israel for training was removed.
Amnesty International has said that Israeli forces train US law enforcement and partake in police exchange programs. In the wake of Floyd’s murder a number of articles circulated, reporting that Minnesota cops received Israeli training in Chicago in 2012. Israeli soldiers have been photographed leaning on Palestinians’ chests and necks, although Israel Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld denies this is a tactic they use.
How far will this cancel culture go? In England, they want to cancel White Jesus Christ! CNN reports:
Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and head of the Church of England, has said the church should reconsider its portrayal of Jesus as a White man.This is stunning. Some Black junkie criminal in Minneosota dies of an opioid overdose, and the Church of England reconsiders its portrayal of Jesus. The world has gone mad.
Speaking to the BBC Today Programme, Welby was asked whether the way the western church "portrays Jesus" needed to be "thought about again" and "re-imagined" in light of recent Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd.
Floyd was diagnosed with COVID-19, and the NY Times now admits:
To a startling degree, many coronavirus patients are reporting similar experiences. Called hospital delirium, the phenomenon has previously been seen mostly in a subset of older patients, some of whom already had dementia, and in recent years, hospitals adopted measures to reduce it. ...The police said that they were concerned that Floyd had Excited Delirium, and apparently held him down so that he would be safe until the ambulance arrives.
Now, the condition is bedeviling coronavirus patients of all ages with no previous cognitive impairment. Reports from hospitals and researchers suggest that about two-thirds to three-quarters of coronavirus patients in I.C.U.’s have experienced it in various ways. Some have “hyperactive delirium,” paranoid hallucinations and agitation; some have “hypoactive delirium,” internalized visions and confusion that cause patients to become withdrawn and incommunicative; and some have both.
And also, Floyd also had three times a lethal dose of fentanyl, and blocked arteries from heart disease.
