If it weren’t so dizzying, it might be entertaining


I’m finding it hard to keep track of who is up and who is down anymore. Elon Musk allowed Kanye West back on Twitter, and then West made a bunch of anti-semitic remarks and got booted again. So he announced what he really thinks.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS ELON COULD BE HALF CHINESE? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN HIS PICS AS A CHILD? TAKE A CHINESE GENIUS AND MATE THEM WITH A SOUTH AFRICAN SUPER MODEL AND WE HAVE AN ELON.

West hired Milo Yiannopoulos as campaign manager (yep, Ye is running for president), and then fired him.

Mike Lindell was suing election boards all over the country, and his latest efforts got smacked down hard, including a demand that he pay all court costs. He has flushed millions down the crapper.

The only person whose star is rising is Andrew Anglin, rabid neo-Nazi, publisher of the Daily Stormer, who has been allowed back on Twitter, where he promptly endorsed Kanye West.

I am
Officially endorsing Ye For President Of America

The ball is back in your court, Elon. I’m sure you’ll make some perspicacious Solomonic judgement here.


Here’s a fine summary of what a bumbling incompetent Elon Musk is.

    Musk’s father is South African. His mother was from Canada.

    West is getting into “danger to himself and others” territory here. The faster he’s locked away in an asylum, the better.

    another indictment of the shambles of a mental Healthcare system we have in the US.

    I wish people would stop conflating “being awful” with mental illness. They’re just being awful because they can get away with it and are even rewarded for it. The US mental health care system is indeed a mess, but this isn’t a sign of it. Not even the best mental health system can “cure” people of doing what they get rewarded for doing.

    If anything needs curing, it’s a society which thinks badly-behaved rich people are admirable.

    Ye genuinely does have mental health problems, but he’s wealthy and can afford the best help if he chooses so the state of the American mental healthcare system doesn’t affect this at all.

    The republican nominating process is going to be possibly the biggest shit-show since the Directoire in Paris. Or, perhaps, the battle of Hattin. Remember Winston Churchill’s quip, “it’s a pity they can’t both lose”? Well, they can. We’ll have punch-drunk fascists staggering around the political scene for years.

    Wait for Milo Y to try to troll Ye, and maybe suck the whole amateur fascist wing in to a running war with the professional fascist wing. That’s my bet for where the action rolls, next.

    One of my friends pointed out last night that Britney Spears didn’t go nearly this far during her breakdown before she was stuck in a conservatorship. The fact that nothing’s being done about Ye indicates a profound double standard.

    On the Elon Musk video, I am one of those people who had convinced myself that Musk must have some secret grand scheme to make a lot of money out of his debacle. While I always knew he could just be a bumbling incompetent, Thought Slime’s summary of the saga convinced me that’s the most likely explanation.

    We have too many people like Musk, Ye, Chump, and so forth who are in positions of power and public influence.

    Marcus Ranum — I’m not finding that quote attributed to Churchill, but to Henry Kissinger over the Iran-Iraq war. As the Battle of Hattin was in the 12th century between Saladin and the Crusader States, it’s doubtful anyone would make a present tense statement about it in modern times.

    True.

    One was female and the other is male.

    It is amazing how much Ye’s behavior is costing him.
    His earning power and wealth is heavily dependent on his public appearances and brand.
    Both of which are being heavily impacted as partners and outlets move away from him.

    There isn’t enough buying power in the Nazi community to keep him going like before. (Or so I hope anyway.) If Ye is capable of thinking things through, he might find that the Nazis and white supremacists aren’t all that fond of Black people either.

    Chinese and South African supermodel? Lol

    I did not know being a model was any sort of ethnicity, and I’m glad that his maternal Grandfather, Joshua Haldeman, left Minnesota for Canada.

    I’m sure Elon is German/Dutch as far as ethnicity, and he bears a striking resemblance to that Grandfather. No idea where the rather common trait of ‘Asian’ eyes come from, but the Huns did enslave and rule over the eastern Goths for 70 years, before being absorbed into the Eastern European gene pool. Admixture between Asian and Europe has been ongoing since the Bronze Age.

    The fact that nothing’s being done about Ye indicates a profound double standard.

    I didn’t follow the Spears drama all that closely but wasn’t it her father who put her in a conservatorship? If so, that could mean Ye, unlike Spears, has no one left who truly cares for his wellbeing.

  11. Louis says

    Okay, let’s open a book on how soon it will be before Anglin et al. use their support of Ye for President as proof positive they aren’t racist?

    I have yesterday.

    Louis

  12. robro says

    Louis @ #12 — Perhaps more to their twisted POV, how quickly they can use opposition to Ye and Walker as proof of racism in the woke-liberal crowd.

  13. Tethys says

    Remember when he pulled ‘Imma let you finish’ during the VMA awards? I think way too much being an entitled POS is categorized as mental illness.

    He might be bipolar, but he is definitely an entitled narcissistic POS, just like every other bigot.

  14. brucej says

    @11 Walter Solomon.

    I’m pretty sure Britney Spears’ father was more motivated by the $$ he could control than of love for his daughter, at least by year 3 or so of his 14 year conservatorship.

    TAKE A CHINESE GENIUS AND MATE THEM WITH A SOUTH AFRICAN SUPER MODEL AND WE HAVE AN ELON.

    So Musk has the body of a Chinese genius and the brains of the super model? (With apologies to supposedly GB Shaw)

    As an alternative to these charlatans, I want to show someone to emulate.

    Can we please clone him a few million times, and replace the crooks?

    Not at all. It’s become so fashionable for historians to grossly overuse the historic present when talking about events that happened centuries ago that I’d actually expect: “Saladin is massing his forces to attack the Crusader states…” This affectation*, which is often actually confusing when the speaker wants to compare past and present events, is so irritating and so widespread that I can scarcely watch or listen to historical broadcasts or podcasts.

    *I think the message is twofold: “I’m a professional historian, and the past is just so real to me”, combined with “You plebs couldn’t possibly be interested in the past for its own sake, so I have to pretend this event is happening now”.

    So, it’s almost two years til US presidential election and one of the candidates is warming up by throwing birther style conspiracy theories at random people who piss him off. Props for constructing a “Your mom” insult that literally says “Your mom must’ve been a supermodel”.
