Films for the #BLM Looters and Rioters

You know, I try. I really try. I try to avoid hopping on the bandwagon of current events this heavily. I don't like getting caught up in them.

Thoughts on Mein Kampf Chapter 2 (part 1)

Part 1 Obstacles are placed in our path in life, not to defeat us but to be surmounted. -- p.73 More pages and density with this chapter.  So much so that I can't do my usual "quote every significant paragraph I see" method and comment on it.  I'm going to have to resort to the … Continue reading Thoughts on Mein Kampf Chapter 2 (part 1)

RE: Debunking Holocaust Denial (part 7)

Jesus Christ.  This isn't something I really intended to become an ongoing thing.  But fuck it, it gives me an excuse to learn some history.  There's a chance I may edit and lengthen this post, depending on how any responses go.  I'm just reposting from the comments section from part 6 (comments which I'll delete … Continue reading RE: Debunking Holocaust Denial (part 7)
