The “Bleach" Lie About Trump was Pure Fake News

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
Winston Churchill

I heard Richard Prebble on the Leighton Smith podcast today parrot the fake news lie about President Trump telling people to inject/swallow bleach as a cure for Covid-19.

Prebble said:

“It was only when Trump suggested that people start swallowing bleach that his popularity fell.”

It tripped off Prebble's tongue as if he thought he was on very solid ground in knowing what the hell he was talking about. He doesn’t, on this topic at least. He’s just being a dummy.

... but not really. The gorgeous specimen below is Frank Tufano, one of YouTube's most successful proponents of the thoroughly unWoke Carnivore Diet. The Carnivore Diet, consisting exclusively of animal foods, would be outlawed by the likes of Occasional Cortex and the World Health Organisation, who would make Veganism (and its attendant psychotic humorlessness) mandatory. I can personally attest that drastically reducing the ingestion of plant foods, especially refined plant foods, is KASS for weight loss and overall health. My point here, however, is that the hilarity of Frank's piss-take of upward-inflecting, fry-quacking soy-boys would be entirely wasted on said soy-boys, since loss of humour is as notorious among Vegans as loss of libido. Note that Frank is a much prettier version of Jacinda Podesta, and he has much better tits (even as he captures her "speech" perfectly). That is, he has tits. Note also that 45% of American gays are going to vote for Orange the Magnificent, as well they might since Orange Man Bad is leading the campaign to decriminalise homosexuality all around the world. Given that many people lie to pollsters out of fear of being doxxed or cancelled by Woke-Fascists, 45% probably translates into 75%.

What Happens When Police Are Cancelled and "Violence Interrupters" Substituted

I remember emailing UKTV about the hijacking of the voice-overs in their programme trailers by illiterate, cretinous, fry-quacking, upward-inflecting moronnials. I received a reply to the effect that UKTV regretted that I didn't enjoy their "voice artists" but urged me to "have a great day" regardless. I responded that the use of the euphemism "voice artists" was hilariously, Orwellianly moronic: these grotesque ejaculators had neither voice nor artistry. Of course I didn't hear back; not even "you have a nice day."

That's how it is now: this "brave o'erhanging firmament" has indeed been turned into a "foul and pestilent congregation of vapours" wherein Shakespeare is dismissed as a Dead White Male and to quote him will soon be a hate crime.

Still, the Woke-Fascists' chickens are quickly coming home to roost. Perhaps the humans in our midst, "noble in reason" and "infinite in faculty," the "beauty of the world, the paragon of animals" will rediscover and reaffirm their humanity in time:


What's Actually Going on

Before Trump was elected, there was a coup attempt against him, most notably by low-lifes committed to endless wars. After he was elected, the coup attempt was ramped up. Key players: Obama, Biden, Comey, Clapper (CIA), Yates (FBI), the Generals, et al—the love-birds Strzok and Page included, all committed to endless wars ... and Woke-Fascism. I am old enough to remember what happened to JFK when he defied the Generals and the CIA and ordered the disengagement from Vietnam as Trump has ordered from Iraq and Afghanistan. He said he would smash the CIA into a thousand pieces. Instead it was his head that got smashed into a thousand pieces. I gravely fear that history is about to repeat itself. Trump is by far the bravest and most anti-Establishment man in living memory to occupy the White House. The Deep State, identified by President Eisenhower as he left office as the "Military-Industrial Complex," and we could now call the Military-Industrial-Academia-Media Complex, will simply not tolerate this, and will stop at nothing to end it.

Don Delivers!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2020-09-11 06:57

Here is a Speech by Don Brash to 10 people 2 nights ago at Victoria University, Wellington. A mere 10 people, not because only 10 people wished to be present, but because 10 was the maximum Woke Victoria—which recently sought to have "Victoria" expunged from its name—would allow. Remember, this is the same taxpayer-funded university that allows ethnic cleansing in the name of terrorist Only Black Lives Matter in its music department. Woke-Fascism at its most disgusting.
 
The speech on the whole is excellent, and astonishingly brave in its Anti-Woke-Fascism. One thing to note is that Don omits a key part of Section 61 of the Human Rights Act, 1993:

being matter or words likely to excite hostility against or bring into contempt any group of persons in or who may be coming to New Zealand on the ground of the colour, race, or ethnic or national origins of that group of persons

This is crucial to the case for repealing s61, as well as the case against "hate speech" laws, which the Woke-Fascists are just itching to impose. I checked with Don directly, and he assured me the omission was inadvertent. In any event, enjoy:

NZ Institutions Must Disavow Their Support for Black Lives Matter

The violence of the Marxist group Black Lives Matter and their alliance with the fascist hate group ANTIFA, is undeniable.

We have watched American cities be set aflame: businesses, churches, cars and municipal buildings. We have watched untold people be punched, beaten and killed by them. We have watched hysterical banshees scream “hate-speech!” at ordinary decent folks who keep reiterating the universal truth that all lives matter.

The official Black Lives Matter website made their racist intentions clear, as if their violent actions were not clear enough to those who pay attention.

But what’s truly repulsive is that here in New Zealand the BLM propaganda now mindlessly infects all of our educational institutions, along with our corporates.

The root of murderous, terrorist KKK Woke-Fascist Only Black Lives Matter and PROFA is Academia. Privileged, taxpayer-funded, smug, snarky, postmodern, righteously evil Academia, such as, in New Zealand, the taxpayer-funded School of Music.
 
The root of all evil is philosophical, especially when it's anti-philosophical, as Academia has been for decades—most notably its Philosophy Departments, which teach that there is no reality and all perception is subjective. Actually, they don't mean that—they simply use such propositions as the guise under which to proclaim their own depraved re-writing of reality, to which re-writing they assign 100% reality! All white people have racism in their DNA, etc. Disagree and you'll be cancelled by the Woke-Fascist Kancel Kultur Klan!

The currently fashionable—and apparently mandatory—Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality sewage are cases in point. Today, Tucker interviewed an expert on these contemporary faces of evil:

There is much jubilation, as there should be, over the sentencing of terrorist Brenton Tarrant—whose name I have difficulty remembering, always confusing it with that of cultural terrorist and Woke hero Quentin Tarantino—to life imprisonment without parole.

This moronnial monster should not be allowed to live one second longer, much less his entire natural life-span fed and generally sustained by the taxpayer. Execute Brenton Tarrant!

Woke-Fascists = KKK (Kancel Kultur Klan)

Ever since 1865, racist Democrats have, while concealing their identity under hoods, perpetrated lynchings and burnings in the violent pursuit of their loathsome objectives. They are the Ku Klux Klan. They are White Supremacists. In 2020, they have a twin. Racist Democrats, concealing their identity under hoods—and behind masks and goggles and the anonymity of their computers—perpetrate lynchings on social media as well as literal killings, beatings, burnings, looting and rioting in the streets. They have been surpassing themselves recently in Portland, Chicago, Seattle, New York and Kenosha. These are Black Supremacists (even though most of them are spoiled white moronnials). They call themselves Black Lives Matter, when what they mean is Only Black Lives Matter And All Other Lives Should Be Eliminated. They call themselves ANTIFA, when what they mean is PROFA: they resemble Mussolini's Blackshirts not just in appearance but in their atrocities. They call themselves "Woke." I call them Woke-Fascists. They are terrorists and totalitarians, and insofar as they renounce the distinctively human faculty of reason in favour of their own brute pseudo-emotions, they are sub-human. To call them "animals" would be unfair to animals.

New Zealand Joins Shithole Countries

When Parliament rushed through the Wuhan Virus Public Health Response Bill last week, the redoubtable Cameron Slater observed that New Zealand had thereby formally become a police state. The following atrocities from the Act make clear that this claim was not hyperbole. Allow time for the enormity of these abominations to sink in. Note the repeated use of the term "without limitation" in the enumeration of the totalitarian powers granted here. Ask yourself how long it will be before unWoke opinions, especially on the subject of the Wuhan virus, are deemed by Woke "enforcement officers," unelected and unaccountable, to promote the spread thereof or hinder efforts to prevent the spread thereof; how long before Woke constables raid the houses of the offending unWoke opiners without a warrant—as they are now empowered to do—and haul them off to indefinite solitary confinement in some specified Gulag—as they are now empowered to do? There are no words to express the treasonous viciousness of this legislation; none to capture the evil of the regime that passed it. Tragically, if the words did exist, very few would use them; part of the success of the Fascist Woke is that they have created a world in which evil is deemed merely "concerning," "troubling," "disappointing" or "problematic."

It was reassuring to read on WhaleOil about a new organisation called Advance Australia which humans are joining "to make sure their beloved country doesn’t succumb to rampant radicalism or political correctness" of the kind viciously promoted by the Soros-funded group GetUp. We could do with something like Advance Australia in New Zealand, where sub-humans—biological humans who nonetheless renounce reason and repair to force—are attempting to end free speech at every turn. They are our local Antifa, except that Antifa should be called (and will be by me henceforth) "Profa" because they are pro-fascist. In their behaviour, appearance and mindless malice they are the modern-day version of Mussolini's Blackshirts. In their beliefs they are Islamo-Marxists, which makes them fascists also.

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2017-02-08 22:50

[Reprised with Post-Script, Aug 14, 2017]

Apocryphally, in 1770, the French writer and provocateur François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire) wrote to a French priest, “Monsieur l'abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write." Actually, he said no such thing. Biographer Evelyn Beatrice Hall, trying to capture the libertarian essence of his attitude to the burning of a book whose content he disapproved of, came up with: “I disapprove of what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it.” The saying, formulated that way, has been attributed to Voltaire ever since.
