Dumping it on Twitter on a Friday night in December? Sounds like a real winner. The real reason why many news outlets didn't touch the laptop story continues to be that the chain of custody is a mess, the people pushing it were unreliable, and there was no way to tell what on the laptop was real and what was fake. But sure, let's all do this dance again.

The public spike in antisemitism feels unprecedented, but cycles in public Jew hatred are common. The difference is that in previous spikes, there was some attempt at denial. In 1991, Pat Robertson's "The New World Order" was a bestseller despite laundering the Protocols. Robertson claimed he was merely exposing global power structures and was the greatest friend to the Jews. And there was real controversy in conservative Jewish press over whether he was or wasn't antisemitic.

Trump has had his thumb on the scale of four American elections. He squeaked out a win in 2016, presided over disasters in 2018 and 2020, and now a hugely disappointing (for the GOP) midterm in 2022. We know beyond a doubt that just Trump's base is not enough to win. The hardcore cultists will follow him down. But you can't win a presidential election - and maybe not even a primary - with only hardcore cultists. You have to get independents and casual voters on board - and they *clearly* are not.

What's left of Twitter's trust and safety team took less than a minute to determine that "shut it Jew" does not violate whatever the rules are now. "Fuck you, you piece of filth. Your family is nothing but a parasite on this earth" was adjudicated in two minutes as not violating any rules.

Elon could have spent .0001% of the price and had .0001% of the headache if he'd just bought Gab or Parler. He could have shitposted 24/7, implemented whatever goofy features he dreamed up, and done it with the full support of his cult of personality at no risk.

Instead...this. He wants a completely open and equal public town square, total free speech allowing anyone to say anything, a robust base of major advertisers, and to do it all with a small a team as possible.

I want to ride a golden unicorn across the goal line at the Super Bowl on Mars.

Depending on the details, I'd pay for a premium Twitter with fewer ads, better curation, and access to professional tools.

I will not pay to have a little blue check that means nothing other than I paid to have a little blue check. These two things are totally different. Premium Twitter is a safer and more useful version of the current service. That has value.

A blue check is nothing more than confirming I am who I say I am. It has no value if everyone can buy them.

Musk potentially charging for verification proves he doesn't understand Twitter. 90% of content comes from 10% of users, and virtually everyone else lurks. Why? B/c most people don't like writing. They pop in to get links to stories and see what their favs are doing. Very few people create long threads. Even fewer enjoy trolling or shitposting. The vast majority of Twitter users consume it passively. And they consume verified journalists, entertainers, brands, analysts, and personalities. Take them away from Twitter and Twitter is useless.

I like my blue check and I earned it.

I'd rather set $20 a month on fire than pay to keep it. Before anyone gets mad at me, I would not literally set $20 a month on fire. I'd donate it to Planned Parenthood.

It might be a good idea to wait until we know *literally anything* about whoever attacked Paul Pelosi before we decide it was definitely politically-motivated violence. It could be, and it could also not be! Multiple sources have broken that the attacker was screaming "where's Nancy". But she's pretty easy to track on social media, and her house had lighter security because she wasn't there. Wouldn't someone targeting her know that? More will be revealed, I suspect.

Some very healthy, very productive internet usage right here. I feel great being the personal hobby of multiple bloggers with nothing else to do. ImageImageImageImage This is the tip of the tip of the iceberg of what they've written about me. I never read a word of it, and it continues whether I ignore it or push back. So at this point, all I can do is laugh.

The "Hitler was secretly Jewish" canard comes from the mystery of his paternal grandfather's identity. Nazi lawyer Hans Frank claimed before his hanging that Hitler's grandfather was an Austrian Jew named Frankenberger. Icke's claim that Baron Salomon Rothschild fathered Alois Hitler starts with a 1970's book based on an OSS report called "The Mind of Adolf Hitler," where's it's presented as a finding in a secret Austrian police document. Neither claim stands up to scrutiny or logic.

Regarding the "great event" on #september24: it's almost identical to talk about a "great event" on September 23, 2015. You had multiple major religious holidays, Obama visiting the Pope, the "Four Blood Moons," and supposedly, a comet passing close to earth and CERN restarting. Supposedly, 9/23/15 was the end of "500 days to prevent climate chaos," was mentioned in the end times prophecies of Isaac Newton, and was a few days before Agenda 2030 launched. Conspiracy believers were getting *really* enthusiastic about something huge and terrible happening.

A Michigan man who got sucked into QAnon thanks to the stolen election industry shot and killed his wife, then shot his daughter and dog before being killed by police. Absolutely horrifying. Thread from QAnonCasualties. This is so upsetting on so many levels.

Rumor has it Queen Elizabeth was working on a documentary about human trafficking at the time of her death. Very sus. I realized not everyone gets this joke. There's a shared agreement among conspiracy cranks that any celebrity who dies was murdered because they were "making a documentary about human trafficking," including Anthony Bourdain, Chris Cornell, and Paul Walker among others.

It bums me out how much of the old conspiracy internet is gone. I found this great list of crank sites, everything from HAARP to alternative medicine to "the DEA framed OJ" from the late 90's, but every link I've tried so far is dead.

padrak.com/alt/WEBSITES.h… Some of it might be on Wayback, but even there I've come up pretty dry. It's a little sad to me that so much of the groundwork that led to our current conspiracy era has vanished for good.

This long thread about a supposed imminent Putin-driven nuclear event is scaring the hell out of people, while offering no specific evidence other than a few Telegram posts. All to shill an article out in a few weeks. It's cynical fearmongering. Image What "warning lights" are blinking? What channels? What is the intelligence community working overtime to do?

The parallels between the attacks on the trans community now and the Jews of Europe in the 30's are obvious. A constant pounding of dehumanizing propaganda and faux panic meant to make you question whether the existence of the out group is compatible with modern society. It's not about mass extermination, not at first. It's about whether they have the right to exist alongside us in the world we've created. When the answer to that is "no", then the talk of mass extermination starts.

Quick reminder: Trump is not "done" or "finished." He's in jeopardy, for sure. But he's still the presumptive GOP nominee in 2024, and massively popular on the right. And unless he is literally stripped of his ability to hold office, he can't be discounted politically. This is why I loath phrases like "the former guy." He's still the guy. He still commands total loyalty among his followers. And if he runs for the GOP nomination in 2024, he's almost certainly going to get it.

Re: the uptick in violent rhetoric in pro-Trump fora after the FBI search - what worried me about QAnon was that you can only tell people their enemies are going to meet a brutal and bloody end so many times with no payoff before someone decides to usher in that end themselves. Far right media figures have spent *decades* promising their fans that the Clintons were about to go down for their many crimes - only for their hero, Donald Trump, to be the one facing legal jeopardy. Their remaining choices are whine about it online or take up arms.

Punitive damages of $44.7 million against Alex Jones. Unanimous verdict. Many brain pills cried out in terror and were silenced. About $49 million total from both damages phases, with two more cases to go. Alex will have to sell mad krill oil and ExtraHard to pay off his victims.
