29 So.....who is this supposed to offend?

"Ku Klux Klowns' is the latest project from the anonymous American
Activist Collective, INDECLINE," the group said in a press release. "It
was conceptualized in the Spring of 2017 in protest of the White
Nationalist uprising in the United States."

While it has been months in the making, the group tells us it wasn't
until after the violent rally in Charlottesville that the group started
looking at Virginia as a place to put the display.

The group says the effigies were hung in Richmond because of "its
infamous legacy of being the capital of the Confederate South. It was
executed in what is today known as Joseph Bryan Park, the same location
of the Gabriel Prosser slave rebellion in 1800."

Yes, "gleefully" is the word I would use.

I noticed on second viewing that one of the protesters jabbed at a policeman with his banner staff. It probably read "Tolerancia".

I hope you are right, but I don't have a good feeling about it. Ever since the election, there has been a drumbeat about her popular vote & EC being about slavery.

The Dems are nothing if not persistent & good at changing the national conversation. That's how we got here. Combine with the Tech oligarchies & SJWs & college indoctrination...I could see it happening.
.
.
.
.If the dems were so good at this stuff we would have had complete and total gun confiscation long ago but we don't.

In fact pretty much the entire Country went against them in regards to gun control and other things. No Federal $15 minimum wage, more and more States with right to work laws, etc.

They keep losing big time on everything they want and have only had one big the last 15+ years.....Obamacare but that is falling apart.

That may mean something. I am wondering if someone got convinced that this ends now, hard, and not later with another civil war.

Pretty sure they are targeting alt-right if not all Trump voters.

The silly thing is that they can liken their political foes to the kkk (or nazis) all thy want, but if their targets don't identify with the kkk then this is meaningless.

I don't agree with kkk, feel any empathy or kinship, so go ahead and mock the kkk!! I hate them, too!!

----------------------------------------------

I visited Spain a couple years ago - beautiful country and the people we met were friendly.

There are reminders all over the parts of Spain that we saw - reminders of the civil war. Reminders of other wars too, there was a church in Barcelona that had been torched at some point in the past, and they repaired the church but never covered up the scorch marks inside the building - the better to remember.

There are many bullet-riddled walls that mark where battles were fought. The painting "Guernica" is in Madrid and memorializes a brutal attack on an innocent village.

I think the Spanish are rightly afraid of any group that comes to town preaching mob violence as antifa does.

She showed clips that today's 'in the bag' news media would not.

The difference in Spain is that the bullet-riddled walls have historical markers attached to them, and are part of the itinerary of tour buses. I will add that the tour guides seem to blame all the historical bad stuff of the 20th century on Franco and the natiionalists, and the fact that the communists/outsiders lost the civil war. Spain is not my country so it's impossible for me to say, but what would Spain have looked like it if the communists had won the Spanish Civil War?

My personal opinion is that things would have gone from bad to worse and stayed there. Communism destroys everything it touches.

Earlier, the hair-on-fire Fox and other outlets were warning we would get devastating flooding and hurricane force gusts. Now locally they're telling us the storm surge will be similar to, maybe a little worse, than Matthew, which didn't effect our island at all. And they're telling us we'll have winds up to 40 mph. which is nowhere near what they were reporting earlier.

They do, but the left may have learned the wrong, strategic lessons. Antifa is nothing new in Catalonia and was supposed to have been part of the Catalan nationalist movement, no idea what it is now.

It has its Spanish roots in the Communists' smearing of the Anarchists during the Civil War as being in league with the Italian Fascists, but I have no idea if there is any real continuity there.

129 I was in Madrid in 2009 during a day when some organization such as the Confederation of Municipal Garbage Collectors (something like that - and no they don't leave a lot of trash around afterward) had an authorized demonstration on a major avenue. These peaceful demos are well coordinated on all sides. The demo groups (parties/unions/etc) have what are essentially professional demo coordinators. The participants are on the sidewalks until the designated time and pre-positioned police at the start time close off nearby intersections (coordinated within seconds) as needed for traffic to flow around the area of the demo. All the cabbies already know where they need to go during the time interval. It is all professionally and rather seamlessly performed. Quite a choreography to see.

When protesters/demonstrators do not follow the script or are unauthorized, well they might get hurt.

143 We're at the stage where rioters are allowed to attack a peaceful gathering, and police are ordered by local officials to stand down and allow it, and then the Media runs cover for them.

Now, what would that morph into if Hillary were president? If anyone protested her policies, if anyone turned out to be a political foe, she might send rioters to shut them down, or perhaps troops, and the Media would cover for her. And we'd be a banana republic. It would have been unthinkable 10 years ago, but this is what is happening before our eyes. We're a hairsbreadth from being there.

I'm starting to hope for a military coup while we still have a CiC who is (I hope) still on our side. I would like to see him march troops into the Capitol building and stand these people against a wall for treason. I know the Founders were afraid of this and added provisions in the Constitution to prevent this. But these are traitors and seditionists, so those rules don't apply.

182 Spain is not my country so it's impossible for me to say, but what would Spain have looked like it if the communists had won the Spanish Civil War?

My personal opinion is that things would have gone from bad to worse and stayed there. Communism destroys everything it touches.



If the Communists would have won, Hitler would have invaded Spain and taken it, sealing off the Western Med and maybe changed the course of the war.

Franco was SUPPOSED to come into WWII on Hitler's side (ostensibly allies), but Franco was really only worried about stabilizing Spain, and was also not a raving anti-Semite. He thought Hitler was nuts and really didn't want any part of the War.

Just my opinion. History is sure full of "what ifs".

I've been watching this show Grantchester on PBS. In the finale I was treated to the 2 men kissing thing. One a vicar. *sigh* I know this stuff goes on. I also know people take sh*ts. But I don't need to see it on screen...all.the.time. I mean, it's PBS.

They remade Indian Summers too. Tried to watch, but after awhile, felt...well...disgusted. We don't need another HBO or sleazy drama. We need a haven from it.

Networks are re-making the old shows. But with modern twists & SJWs & all that crap. The audiences have
spiraled for the old shows. Yet, the networks obviously don't get why that is. Nin-com-poops. .

Last week someone mentioned the experience of Italian troops on the Eastern front; the experience of Spanish troops was different. They got to the end of their enlistment and then told the Germans they were going home

246 Have only seen/read snippets about it, from various angles, but Franco's stiff-arm to Hitler is one of the more interesting and least known side-stories of the war, seems to me. And I think he did it at the height of Hitler's actual power and momentum, following the quick/easy conquest of the low countries and France. One more thing I'd like to learn more about, need to find the right books, if they exist (I mean focusing in depth of the Franco-Hitler situation - I think Kershaw's war-time Hitler bio went into it a bit).

257 Kindltot, mighta been me re Eye-talians on the eastern front (just finished the memoir of a survivor). But I didn't know there were Spanish on that front - were they SS volunteers? Romanians, Hungarians, Croatians, and Italians I knew about - not Spanish. The former of course were conventional formations under national flag and "control" (yes this changed depending on conditions), not volunteer formations.

Posted by: rhomboid at September 10, 2017 03:35 PM (QDnY+)

258 240 Hitler wanted Spanish support. Franco I believe argued that his country was in ruins, he had to keep control of his very unsettled populace, however Spain could supply raw materials and maybe volunteers.

Last week someone mentioned the experience of Italian troops on the Eastern front; the experience of Spanish troops was different. They got to the end of their enlistment and then told the Germans they were going home

it at the height of Hitler's actual power and momentum, following the
quick/easy conquest of the low countries and France. One more thing I'd
like to learn more about, need to find the right books, if they exist (I

291 bth, my impression was that the Allies quickly became consumed with DPs, European recovery, and of course the nascent rivalry with the Soviets, and Sweden and the other neutrals were just not a priority (I mean spanking them for their behavior). In addition, I think Sweden was a useful hotbed of espionage (like Lisbon and Switzerland), and also was pretty cooperative and lenient in treatment of interned Allied personnel. When one considers how, for practical reasons, the retributive hand went so lightly on Germany itself, not hard to see how the neutrals would get a de facto pass.

A POW question. In my wheelhouse! Thank you rhomboid.

Portugal, Switzerland & Sweden in that order, and it was not all beer and skittles even there. Most were transported back to England, eventually.

Spain treated escaped POW very poorly until the start of 1944. Portugal acted more as a transportation conduit for escaped POWs.

Of course German POWs in the US were often living better than anyone in their armed forces OR country by 1943, and many did the smart thing and never went back (or came back quickly).

"China's model for the past 25 years, it's based on investment and exports. Who financed that? The American working class and middle class. You can't understand Brexit or the 2016 events unless you understand that China exported their deflation, they exported their excess capacity. It's not sustainable," Mr. Bannon declared. "The reordering of the economic relationship is the central issue that has to be addressed, and only the U.S. can address it."

I expect Bannon wants a trade war with China, and doesn't want Korea to get in the way. In fact, it can be a cassus beli for the trade war.

What trade war? We finished a solid second place in a trade war with China from about 1999-2010. Millions of American manufacturing jobs disappeared along with over 60,000 American factories.

We exported a huge proportion of our middle class to China for what exactly in return? So that they could prop up North Korea and by extension, Iran?

That's not going to work out for any of us.

370 An interesting dance between Ireland and Great Britain during WWII. Churchill seriously considered invading neutral Ireland to seize its Southern ports to extend Britain's ant-sub capabilities, but didn't because of the threat of Irish-Americans shutting down US ports.

Ugh. I don't even like the taste of alcohol.

The problem with AA is that they have a "one size fits all" program, and while it corresponds to a lot of cases, doesn't correspond with all of them.

Just to give an obvious counterexample, say a mother has her baby kidnapped, so she turns to substance abuse.

AA would tell her, "You are addicted to alcohol and your life has become unmanageable! You have behave sinfully in your relationships and you must make a moral reckoning of your life and be reconciled to those you have wronged. And do not neglect the fellowship of the meetings".

Horseshit. If her baby were restored to her, she'd give it up like that. Their insistence on "one size fits all" makes them useless for those who don't fit their mold.

And of course Michelle Kamala blah blah blah whatever - as much or more than any recent president, Trump holds his fate in his own hands.

If he achieves results, on key issues, the WH is his for the asking in 2020. His election was the most pragmatic - not to say desperate - act of the electorate in memory. He certainly had the highest % of voters who were neutral or negative on him, personally, of any winning candidate. Probably ever. He will be judged, by the electoral majority that made him prez, almost certainly entirely on the bottom line. Much as he would in fact judge someone in the business world.

421 I want to watch this until Irma knocks the power out. The food thread is always fun, and I've already slobbered all over it, but this here is just too yummy!

424 I did not get to Myrtle Beach area until I was 40. I've been here more than 15 years. It is my little slice of paradise. Nothing like wearing shorts all year long especially after surviving the global cooling blizzards of the 70's {snicker} of the great Midwest.

425 Spain law enforcement v. antifa bozos. Minoan style? imagine that fat girl leaping bulls when she couldn't keep her balance walking backwards. They've one trick thugs, running unopposed, together with batons smashing windows and bones. -- like Hillary's 2016 stampede that never materialized on Election Day.

426 Reminds me of the time (years ago) when the small town PD I worked for got a call for emergency assistance, because of a large fight going on, from a college in a neighboring town. We got there and saw about 50 students fighting in a parking lot. My sergeant looked at me and my partner and said "nametags off, boys, it's asskickin' time."

What if the news media promoted an unimaginable disaster, and it didn't happen?

Let me tell you about driving EIGHT hours because wife thinks Irma is going to hit Pawley's Island and I have to put everything up.
NOW, all that shit has to be taken down.

And I'm kicked back in a rented condo on Pawley's Island after mandatory evacuation from Glynn Co. GA. No other tourists, great restaurants and not even a rain shower here yet.
