Shaun King Demonstrates Why The Concept Of ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Is Complete Bullshit

By Whelp, we have another whitey dancing in blackface to win the hearts and minds of white folks, who otherwise would never be able to process an alternate point of view, amirite? Shaun King, a major provocateur in the #BlackLivesMatter movement, has been outed by Milo Yiannopoulos at Breitbart as a 100% white guy, faking his racial background to gain authority, and the right to define the experience of Black people in America. Gee, a white guy hungry for the authority to tell Black Americans what they think and feel? Nothing racist about that at all!
In actual fact, I don’t think there is anything racist at all about a white person using their voice to help articulate the position of other people who are not white. It can be a huge advantage to have a white person advocating for issues that affect primarily people of color – I practice a version of this principle by being a woman advocating for men’s rights, and the advantage accrues from the exact same mechanism that affords white people advocating for Black people moral authority: white people command a kind of respect that Black people don’t, and women command a respect that men simply don’t. In general, we understand that white people are automatically conferred with greater authority, and our word for this is ‘racism’. In general, we absolutely refuse to acknowledge that women are the privileged gender, and that women’s voices command authority over men’s because we are living through the last dying moments of feminism, which insists the exact opposite is true. Women are oppressed by ‘sexism’, despite the fact that their voices are privileged over men’s, especially when it comes to men’s issues.

You’ve Been Warned - Spotify Wants To Spy On You In Every Way Imaginable

By Michael Krieger: I clearly remember the moment several years ago when my closest friend from NYC was at my place pleading with me to download and use Spotify. The pitch was compelling and I was open minded about the concept, until I learned that you had to login through Facebook to use it (no longer the case I believe). I immediately found this creepy and refused to use it.
Fast forward to 2015, and Forbes has come out with a very important article highlighting the incredible creepiness factor in Spotify’s new “privacy policy.” Here’s some of what it found:

Music streaming market leader Spotify has decided that it wants to know a lot more about you. It wants to be able to access the sensor information on your phone so it can determine whether you’re walking, running or standing still. It wants to know your GPS coordinates, grab photos from your phone and look through your contacts too. And it may share that information with its partners, so a whole load of companies could know exactly where you are and what you’re up to.

This has all been made apparent by a rather significant update to the Spotify privacy policy, pushed out to users today.

Insouciance Rules The West

By Paul Craig Roberts: Europe is being overrun by refugees from Washington’s, and Israel’s, hegemonic policies in the Middle East and North Africa that are resulting in the slaughter of massive numbers of civilians. The inflows are so heavy that European governments are squabbling among themselves about who is to take the refugees. Hungary is considering constructing a fence, like the US and Israel, to keep out the undesirables. Everywhere in the Western media there are reports deploring the influx of migrants; yet nowhere is there any reference to the cause of the problem.
The European governments and their insouciant populations are themselves responsible for their immigrant problems. For 14 years Europe has supported Washington’s aggressive militarism that has murdered and dislocated millions of peoples who never lifted a finger against Washington. The destruction of entire countries such as Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan, and now Syria and Yemen, and the continuing US slaughter of Pakistani civilians with the full complicity of the corrupt and traitorous Pakistani government, produced a refugee problem that the moronic Europeans brought upon themselves.
Europe deserves the problem, but it is not enough punishment for their crimes against humanity in support of Washington’s world hegemony.
In the Western world insouciance rules governments as well as peoples, and most likely also everywhere else in the world. It remains to be seen whether Russia and China have any clearer grasp of the reality that confronts them.

Fathers4Justice Statement About Mumsnet Founder

F4J: Fathers4Justice are concerned about reports that the Mumsnet founder, Justine Roberts, has been subject to threats of violence and intimidation by a group purporting to represent fathers.
Fathers4Justice can confirm that they have no connection or contact with this group and unreservedly condemn these actions which have no place in a movement campaigning for loving fathers who are struggling to see their children.
F4J hope that the Police will provide an appropriate level of support for Ms Roberts and her family at this difficult time.
In 2012, F4J criticised Mumsnet for allowing gender hatred and anti-father comments on their web site that called men rapists, paedophiles and wife beaters.

US Neo-Con-Artists Wants To Increase Global Lethal And Surveillance Drone Flights To 30,000 By 2019

By Claire Bernish: As if in complete defiance of the extensive contention at home and abroad, the Pentagon announced plans this week to dramatically ramp up global drone operations over the next four years.
Daily drone flights will increase by 50% during this time, and will include lethal air strikes and surveillance missions to deal with the increase in global hot spots and crises, according to an unnamed (and unverified) senior defense official, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.
“We’ve seen a steady signal from all our geographic combatant commanders to have more of this capability,” said Defense Department spokesperson, Navy Captain Jeff Davis to reporters at the Pentagon.
Capacity for lethal airstrikes — despite the U.S.’ existent infamous reputation in its massive current program — will increase still further through a joint effort by the Air Force, Army, and Special Operations Command. Ironically, this news comes on the heels of a report that — because of what amounts to sibling rivalry — around $500 million has been wasted in attempts to bring the Air Force and Army into a combined drone purchasing program of the same Predator drones whose flights are now to be increased.
“The combatant commanders and the Department of Defense need to take a truly joint approach to delivering the kinds of capabilities that remotely piloted aircraft can provide,” said retired Air Force three-star general David Deptula. “I’m glad to hear they’re taking a more joint approach. That’ll be a great help right there.”
