This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there (at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
I really like these guy’s “top 10 memes”. They watch what is going on on Gab and Patriot.win and select the ones that they like best. A nice filtering service if nothing else; but the way they match music to the theme is also good. Unfortunately, can’t do an embed that works with my free WordPress plan (it does do free EwTube embeds… but only them) so you get to “hit the link”. This week the theme is “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” (as they present televised video memes of folks revolting against The Overlords…) It is 19 minutes of fun (if the music isn’t to your taste, you can mute it. Over 95% of the content is visual):
Do be prepared to hit pause to pick up the details. Like the lightning in #9 that is “racist” symbol, or text that looks like “ignore me login text” but isn’t ;-) Some of it is subtle and goes by fast…

The occupant of the White House heightens the rhetoric against his adversaries, bringing the country one small step closer to balkanization. In a speech meant to rally opposition to laws passed by state legislatures–laws intended to make elections more secure–Joe Biden condemns much of the country as a new confederacy of ‘insurrectionists.’

Why include that long list of links and Promotional Text? To illustrate something. Look at it. What do you NOT see? That’s right. Twitter. Facebook. YouTube. All “the usual” Censorship & Oppression sites.
What do you see? Odysee, Bitchute, Rumble, Gab.
What we have here is a clear example of the Big Tech Companies being replaced, for about 1/2 the country at least, with “Alternatives”. I’m now spending about 3/4 or more of my “Video Time” NOT on EwTube (and growing). That’s ad revenue they no longer get. There’s a few things I still watch there, but shrinking daily. Even then, those guys often say something like “For the parts we left out on EwTube, see our Odysee channel”…
I have no idea if the censorship assault has actually reduced total viewing for channels. I do know that for me, I how watch Infowars MORE than before. I’d basically shunned it as I didn’t like the “shouting” aspect of Alex Jones. Then they banned it (even drove it off of the Roku where some Idaho public channel carried it). Now it’s returned at banned.video. I have a link to it on both tablet and desktop. I now check it out about once a week to see what he’s banging on about. They did succeed in making it harder for a couple of months, but created a ‘regular viewer’ (if a lite one) in the process.
In essence, the “ban” was at most a bump in the road and has sorted the Censoring Sites into a smaller market. Will it matter? Only time will tell.
Starting with 10 through 8: They poke fun at the “Daily Briefings” at the White House, assert that the Vexxine Door Knockers are in fact just a way to ship funding to the election fraud organizations, point out the George Floyd Mural was destroyed by God (snicker ;-), via RayCist Lightning…, Fauci has a list of 12 and is checking it twice, and the doublespeak from the WH is exposed. Then, there’s a Big One: The White House says it is directing and coordinating the censorship. Direct violation of the 1st Amendment (and more).
At number 7 they show the Paris Protests as a sea of The French say “NON!” to Macron. Unless France uses Dominion voting systems too, I think Marine Le Pen has high odds of being elected next. Look closely at that video segment. FAR more folks maskless than wearing a mask. The French are “Done with this shit” too. I especially like the “My Body My Choice” poster ;-) Note that, while not in the video, the Police later joined the protesters… Just sayin’… Macron might want to review the history of “The French Haircut”…
At #6 they move to South Africa and how it is being destroyed as it embraced Critical Race Theory. As of now, many non-Black neighborhoods have gone to “self policing” to prevent being murdered. One Black government leader states the Blacks were to go into Indian and White neighborhoods and kill people, burn their houses down. So “Note to self: Have enough guns and ammo to stop that.” Note in particular the “Brown on Black” Indians defending their homes against a Black Mob that’s been told to go kill them. Rather like “Rooftop Koreans” being painted as “white racists”…
South Africa is an exemplar of the goal state. Hopefully there’s more folks here seeing through this crap, and early enough to stop it. Note that the major “push” organization for this mess is the ANC, a Marxist organization. Do not ever forget that Marxist Doctrine states they must destroy what is, to bring about the Marxist Communist Socialist Utopia. That there MUST be a destructive “revolution” first. That is the goal state. Does not matter if they are ANC, BLM, DNC or whatever. Method and means are already defined and agreed, globally.
By #5, we’ve moved to Cuba. I had no idea just how huge the protests there were. I also have no idea what has sparked them now. Has Cuba become even more of a hell hole than it was? A minor Dig Here! for later…
Number 4 pokes fun at the Texas Dims who got on a plane without masks (Gee, why was I harassed for 9 hours, in the airport and plane, via automated threats of NEVER being allowed to fly again if I ever was caught maskless?…) and ended up sharing Chinese Wuhan Covid around amongst themselves and the government in D.C. (District Of Criminals).
They then move on to the Election Audits for #2 & #3. Starting to look like a pretty good “roundup of the news” isn’t it? ;-)
Then, at #1, it moves on to the Peaceful Protest at the capitol 1/6. (The “insurrection” has not yet begun…) I especially like the Granny all out of yarn ;-) Biden seems “unclear on the concept” that 620,000 dead in a war lasting years is not the same as one woman murdered by a Government Employee… nor does he ‘get it’ that the Confederates “trying to reach the Capitol” in the Civil War were Democrats…
Normally at this point, I’d do a ‘review of the news’, but frankly, I think that list already pretty much covers it. Bongino report adds some bits, like the DOJ not bothering with Dim Governors nursing home murder by proxy. I probably ought to mention the Defense funding bill that just, incidentally, subjects women to the Draft:
Senate defense budget bill would require women to register for draft
By Emily JacobsJuly 23, 2021 | 10:45am | Updated
Changes to the draft, officially known as the Selective Service System, were made official in the National Defense Authorization Act, the annual military budget bill, which the Senate Armed Services Committee announced it had approved Thursday.
The NDAA “amends the Military Selective Service Act to require the registration of women for Selective Service,” a summary of the bill reads.
But hey, if anyone with a “full set” can still just decide to “identify as a woman” I guess you need that to be able to assure you don’t end up with a population 80% “identifying as a woman” during an unpopular war… so there’s that…

Delingpole: Boris Plays Climate Fiddle While South Africa Burns
Rioting, looting and violence have swept two South African provinces, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. Dozens of people have been killed, vital infrastructure has been destroyed and the damage runs into the billions. But it’s OK: the Imperial mother country has got South Africa’s back. Behold the latest initiative from the United Kingdom’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office!

My take on this is two things:
1) Africa is fully “in play”.
2) Watch South Africa for how the play book is run.
Oh, and just in case you were thinking that Big Tech was interested in STOPPING this kind of violence via censoring “hate speech”, note that they are letting that run. It’s the goal, after all… IMHO of course:
Indians Fear Attack in South Africa as Big Tech Fails to Stop Incitement
South Africans of Indian descent fear mob violence as threats escalate on social media during the ongoing violence and looting, especially in KwaZulu-Natal province, which has a large proportion of residents with roots on the Subcontinent.

I’ve got zero interest in watching a bunch of Political Performative Art by folks smothered in masks without an audience. What’s the point?
If anything interesting happens AS SPORTS, I’ll catch the highlight on something where I can fast forward over the crap.

I’ve also gotten addicted to the Top Ten Memes of the week from WatchMAGA here:
They have interesting “bite” to them, along with a tendency to highlight the news of the week in memes, so good as a social attitude pointer too. Plus they are “way fun” ;-)
