Fascist Wednesday


You’re last post was considered against the rules. you’re fired!

In September of last year, we noted that Facebook representatives were meeting with the Israeli government to determine which Facebook accounts of Palestinians should be deleted on the ground that they constituted “incitement.” The meetings — called for and presided over by one of the most extremist and authoritarian Israeli officials, pro-settlement Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked — came after Israel threatened Facebook that its failure to voluntarily comply with Israeli deletion orders would result in the enactment of laws requiring Facebook to do so, upon pain of being severely fined or even blocked in the country.

The predictable results of those meetings are now clear and well-documented. Ever since, Facebook has been on a censorship rampage against Palestinian activists who protest the decades-long, illegal Israeli occupation, all directed and determined by Israeli officials. Indeed, Israeli officials have been publicly boasting about how obedient Facebook is when it comes to Israeli censorship orders:

Shortly after news broke earlier this month of the agreement between the Israeli government and Facebook, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Tel Aviv had submitted 158 requests to the social media giant over the previous four months asking it to remove content it deemed “incitement.” She said Facebook had granted 95 percent of the requests.

    A steady 28 minutes to the Old European for lingonberry Swedish crepes.

      Then to Shopko to pick up the prescription, a stop by the hospital 15 minutes later to schedule a CT scan and onwards to the Birch & Barley brings the running total to 83 minutes. Along the way Walmart is fortifying their retaining wall along the access road up from Bishop Blvd. Lots of big machinery and a portable concrete/grout mixer.


    • David B. Benson says:

      A daily total of 136 minutes as the moment I started for home the sun came out so I went all the way around clockwise, thence up the College Hill Climb and Maple Street Extension for the needed exercise.

      Day 4: 69+136=205 minutes. See? And still time for a late afternoon nap.

    Today it was all about the Michael Wolfe book, and Trump’s big button, how exciting! A lot of the yet unreleased book has leaked and Bannon has been awful to Trump. YAY! Ivanka isn’t very bright, like a brick, I think she was described. A little bit of business acumen but nothing else. Heh, heh, heh. Like father, like daughter. Bannon said the whole family was treasonous, lol.

    Then to hear Trump blow that book and Bannon off today, hilarious. Trump is so transparent, so obvious. Holy cow. Trump tried to say today first off that when he fired Bannon, Bannon lost his mind. Then he tried to say Bannon wasn’t a big deal in his White House, just an aide, or something, lol. Oh, Trump…you are so very bad at lying.

    Did some Carolizing today, in the closet in here, and one of the cupboards in the hutch on my desk. Made salads, watched a movie.

    Also in the book, on inauguration day, Milania and Trump argued all day. That explains the look on her face when he was sworn in, and his ignoring of her when walking into the White House to greet the Obamas.

    On election night, Trump was like a deer in the headlights, he was horrified that he won. He didn’t think he would, and neither did anyone else.


  8. Carol ٩(-̮̮̃-̃)۶ says:

    “Even though the numbers in a few key states had appeared to be changing to Trump’s advantage, neither Conway nor Trump himself nor his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — the effective head of the campaign — ­wavered in their certainty: Their unexpected adventure would soon be over. Not only would Trump not be president, almost everyone in the campaign agreed, he should probably not be. Conveniently, the former conviction meant nobody had to deal with the latter issue.”
    They didn’t think he SHOULD be president? They should be talking him into resigning before he finishes destroying our country.

    “Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.

    There was, in the space of little more than an hour, in Steve Bannon’s not unamused observation, a befuddled Trump morphing into a disbelieving Trump and then into a horrified Trump. But still to come was the final transformation: Suddenly, Donald Trump became a man who believed that he deserved to be, and was wholly capable of being, the president of the United States.”
