DYSTOPIA NATION: TECHNO-TYRANTS OF SILICON VALLEY

Mascot sword and pistolHere at Balladeer’s Blog I write plenty of items about myths from around the world. I often mention that my blog posts about figures from the American West are along the same lines to me since I think the exaggerated tales of whatever their real-life stories were originate the same way that many religious fables do: the usual human tendency toward superstition and embellishment.

Dystopian literature is similar but instead of embellishing figures and events from the past this type of fiction involves taking contemporary problems and/ or trends and extrapolating them into larger than life menaces in the near or far future.

Soylent Green did it with overpopulation and food shortages, One Blade of Grass did it with environmental issues and Orwell’s 1984 did it with totalitarian political forces which still threaten to use his nightmarish novel as their road map. Countless other examples could be cited.   

THE TECHNO-TYRANTS OF SILICON VALLEY – The modern-day versions of the disgusting old Robber Barons might well be the corporate fascists aka techno-fascists in assorted tech industries, not just regarding Silicon Valley but also  privacy-violating rich pigs at Facebook and elsewhere.

In fact, you could make the case that people like Mark “Skippy” Zuckerberg and his fellow corporate fascists are even worse since I don’t recall bloated rich pigs like E.H. Harriman or Cornelius Vanderbilt trying to police other people’s every thought, word and deed. The invasive and ever-expanding tentacular reach of techno-fascists or in this fictional case Techno-Tyrants would make these villains a very credible threat to political freedom and freedom of expression.

TRUMP EFFECT: ELEVEN-YEAR HIGH PERCENTAGE OF AMERICANS SAY THINGS ARE GOING WELL PLUS MORE …

Kanye Democrat PlantationBalladeer’s Blog has long emphasized the need for Third Parties in America since the Democrats and Republicans are just rival gangs of white collar criminals.

De facto Third Party President Donald Trump isn’t really a Republican – Republicans themselves often remind all of us of that – he just commandeered their political party apparatus.

Trump triELEVEN YEAR HIGH PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY THINGS ARE GOING WELL – CNN’s own polling is telling us this – which means the figure is probably even higher than the 59% they quoted. At any rate , I always make it clear that after the 2016 election I don’t trust polls and surveys done by the corporate media but Trump-hating fascists eat, sleep and breathe by such polls and surveys so I periodically have fun mentioning results like this.

It’s always hilarious to watch those people IMMEDIATELY go from pretending polls are sacred indicators to pretending they aren’t at all accurate if there’s a result they don’t like.  

Obama clown

THIS BUFFOON IS LIVING PROOF WHY WE NEED THIRD PARTIES.

TEARS OF A CLOWN – The weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama was sniveling and whining about President Trump – make that de facto Third Party President Donald Trump – trashing Barry’s pathetically one-sided Iran Deal.

I guess Barry’s worried that this jeopardizes his name as the Father of the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Program.

Eric SchneidermanSAMANTHA BEE STUPID – The relentlessly unfunny Samantha Bee looked like an even bigger fool than she usually does recently after New York’s Democrat Attorney General Eric Schneiderman – whom she praised and groveled for in an interview – had to resign amid #METOO accusations of brutal VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. At least FOUR accusers have come forward.

Schneiderman’s reps have been saying his explanation is that the violence was all consensual BDSM “games” in which he would abuse the women – and in the case of a woman of color among the accusers – allegedly made her call him “Master.” 

AGAIN, DEMOCRATS ARE ALWAYS LECTURING THE REST OF US ABOUT ATTITUDES TOWARD WOMEN AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN BUT IT TURNS OUT TO BE AS HYPOCRITICAL AS IF PRIESTS LECTURED THE REST OF US ABOUT NOT MOLESTING LITTLE BOYS. 

AND NEEDLESS TO SAY, AT LEAST ONE OF THE ACCUSERS MENTIONED HOW OTHER DEMOCRAT FEMALES PRESSURED HER NOT TO COME FORWARD JUST BECAUSE SCHNEIDERMAN WAS A DEMOCRAT! WHAT A BUNCH OF “HANDMAIDS.” “IS THIS WHAT FEMINISM LOOKS LIKE?” 

Y’know, Samantha, when your only criteria for hero-worship is that the figure you bow down to criticizes Trump (Bee even called Schneiderman a “superhero”) you’re always going to be vulnerable to the kind of humiliation this incident brings down on you.

Lloyd Marcus newLLOYD MARCUS: DESPITE THE MEDIA, TRUMP PULLING DOWN WINS FOR WE THE PEOPLE – As I always mention, Lloyd is religious and I’m a non-believer.

But aside from his religious remarks I find his take on Trump’s triumphs very interesting. Among many other items he mentions Kanye West being the latest African-American to break away from the Democrat Plantation.

MICHAEL MOORE: FAKE FRIEND TO THE WORKING CLASS

Michael MooreMichael Moore, the man who put the “pig” in Bloated Rich Pig, continues to pretend he’s a friend of the working class and the poor. After all, he does vulture-like documentaries exploiting tragic circumstances for the working class and the poor.

Hey, Michael, why not put your money where your busy mouth is: keep just 2 or 3 million dollars of your money and give the rest away to the 99% that you pretend you support? It might actually give you a moral leg to stand on when you attack de facto Third Party President Donald Trump, the new FDR.

President Trump really has done good works for the working class and the poor through his policies. We all know countless, formerly suffering families who have reasons to be thankful for that. Michael Moore’s self-indulgent propaganda movies don’t seem to benefit anybody but himself.

That’s the difference between REAL populists like President Trump and FAKE populists like Michael “You Gonna Finish Those Fries” Moore. Continue reading

TRUMP-ETS: APRIL 10th

BET funder Robert Johnson and President TrumpOn a CNBC appearance Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, joined the many other black business and community leaders praising President Trump for the way his economic measures have maximized opportunities for African-American jobs.

I will point out again that President Trump is the new FDR and the new Harry Truman in so many ways. And the short-sighted, bloated rich pigs among the Democrats and Republicans hate him for it and use the media outlets they own to launch constant attacks on Trump because of it. He’s the best president for the working class and the poor in decades.  

I won’t ignore the monumental good this man has accomplished for the forgotten people just because the pompous snobs, pretentious asses and cowardly conformists of the country demand it. 

Hillary dead body in trunkMeanwhile, Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton, the preferred candidate of those pompous snobs, pretentious asses and cowardly conformists, continues to ramble incoherently and blame everyone else for her humiliating – and well-deserved – defeat.

As the evidence indicates, Hillary was in the pocket of so many people thanks to moneys funneled to her that a Hillary presidency would have been the worst imaginable. 

The people of Haiti continue to suffer because of Hillary and her fake charity which was really just a back-channel for bribes and other graft, it seems. They were “Hillaried” the way far too many suffering areas of the U.S. would have been had this career criminal won in 2016. Continue reading

QUOTES TO PONDER: APRIL 4th

hippy“WHO KNOWS ONLY THEIR OWN GENERATION REMAINS ALWAYS A CHILD.” – That quote from George Norlin has multiple layers of meaning but to me it always brings to mind those self-infatuated fools from the 1960s generation who remain perpetual children.

I’m not referring to the truly talented and capable members of that generation who went on to many real-world accomplishments, but the worst, most shrill elements of that generation who – as stated above – remained perpetual children.

They distorted liberalism into a philosophy that was critical ONLY of the western world and distorted the educational system into a realm of prolonged adolescence. A realm in which they are perpetually self-righteous and immature, petulantly demanding agreement with their shallow, simple-minded views on complex issues.

(Notice how they have to keep going younger and younger to find unformed minds that actually agree with their juvenile attitudes. They’ll be pushing the vote for 13 year olds before you know it.) 

Even worse is the way they remade the educational system (LMAO) into nothing but a vehicle for browbeating their students into agreeing with every one of their increasingly outdated political opinions.   

“WE CAN’T TRUST FACEBOOK TO REGULATE ITSELF.” – This was said by a former Facebook manager who was among the many experienced figures coming forward in recent months regarding the mammoth abuses of Facebook aka the Confirmation Bias Community. Continue reading
