A Correction is Issued

Althouse quotes it. That's a lot of false claims. Fake news anyone?
As a mark of our regret we have agreed to pay Mrs Trump substantial damages as well as her legal costs.

Ari Benjamin Meyers - Symphony X

This playlist has 10 views. It's possible nearly all of them are me!  I don’t recall linking this piece before, but I have been listening to it for years. Head banging minimalist classical music. Caveat emptor.

Child Punching Timeline

Megan McCardle has a good timeline on Twitter, here.

And Kevin Williamson is too kind. In particular he is too kind to his own magazine, National Review, which went off the deep end with sanctimonious high dudgeon rather than spending a moment checking facts. Williamson has himself shown similar prejudice as I recall, so he hasn’t much standing here, but he's mostly right this time.

I saw one tweet that expressed hope for a school shooting at Covington Catholic High School.

Here is Tucker Carlson, 9 minutes.

Excellent Atlantic Summary of the Child Punching Frenzy

I don’t agree with every word (for example, the comment about Blackout days) but this is an outstanding summary from The Atlantic.

Here is my summary. In the Jim Crow South, a black man on a sidewalk was expected to step aside when a white man approached. A black man who did not would be punished. To the media, and much of America, Sandman's offense was to not step aside.

Overdue Nyman

Haven’t had Nyman in a while. One of the Lust Songs.
The picture [Twitter] reveals is ugly, vulgar, shrill, and intolerant, with souls exhibiting an incapacity to deliberate, weigh evidence, and judge judiciously. 
More.  This is exactly the point. More important than the bile and the resentment the “punch a child” frenzy reveals is the the thoughtlessness. No-one who jumped on this applied any independent thought, or felt the need for more evidence. Stimulus, response. We are seeing Richard Hofstadter's “paranoid style” and “100% mentality” combine, and take over a large fraction of the culture.

More Child Punching

More here.
Death wishes too.

Calls for violence  Twitter has not suspended this account as of this time. “Maga  cocksuckers” are fair game I guess.

All on no evidence at all.

Punching Children

Reza Aslan.

This looks like fake news from the start, more red meat unverified bullshit from CNN, but even if it were true, punching kids is not a good look.

roundup of relevant stuff. It was bullshit indeed.

I used to live in Ft Thomas, which abuts Covington. Both are really suburbs of Cincinnati.

call into question the integrity or validity of [BuzzFeed News, CNN, MSNBC,...].
Commenter meade over at Althouse about the latest no-evidence shit show .

Luther said that the very least parishioners should be able to ask of their church is that it not steal from them. What's the least we should we expect from professional journalists?

Here is how NBC does it.

The Great Stupiding Continues

Vaginal steaming. Buy your herbs here.

Warm fuzzies

A story that gives me warm fuzzies. More hypocrisy from Greenpeace.

Andrew Sullivan

The goal of our culture now is not the emancipation of the individual from the group, but the permanent definition of the individual by the group. We used to call this bigotry. Now we call it being woke.
