So Elon is creating a platform for hate speech to bring about some kind of alt-right tech haven?

https://twitter.com/RudyHavenstein/status/1593288171638300673 is back. I'm sure he's considered far right terrorist since he posts anti-fed propaganda.

I quit simping long ago. Sold my Tesla and lost money shorting Tesla at least 3 times.

I still find it hilarious Elon has taken over one of the major cathedral mouthpieces. He's obviously a formidable opponent the current system doesn't know how to fight or handle. The current system has not had a real opposition since any of us have been alive.

As I stated previously, it's not hard to imagine the guy at the helm of the company designing all our next generation weapons becomes some kind of actual political force. Elon doesn't strike me as someone that's going to step aside when a journalist, government, whoever stands in the way of his aspirations. He also seems at least as effective as Trump propaganda and manipulation. Showing mastery of selling moonshots in multiple domains like space travel and electric cars to the public.

If you ever hear anyone utter, "electric cars are simpler and less likely to break. They don't need oil changes." That was Elon programming their brain like it was PayPal.

Quote :
"The episode, titled “The Musk Who Fell to Earth,” begins by showing Lisa Simpson tending to a birdhouse with a sign that reads, “Home Tweet Home.” She is feeding baby birds when a bald eagle snaps them up and kills them.

As the eagle flies into the distance, Musk arrives in his rocket ship. Fire from the aircraft incinerates the eagle — a longtime emblem of the U.S."


Simpsons did it!

Best way to describe current system would be Iron Triangle https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_triangle_(US_politics) interspersed with media, academia, and various three letter government agencies. You see it referred to as "The Cathedral" in "New Right" circles.

Pretty fair summary and overview:
https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/23373795/curtis-yarvin-neoreaction-redpill-moldbug

These new right people weaponize meme culture and attracted younger generation while boomer cons railed against immigrants or something. There's been no leader to coalesce into a real movement other than the orange conman. Who most of the new right now see as incompetent and incapable of forming the alliances needed to radically change the country. Trump can make cute nicknames and tweets--and he's not even tweeting. He's certainly not going to create a credible opposition to the Global American Empire or be capable of reforming it.

Quote :
"For instance: in 2021, Harvard, Yale, the Times and the Post are on the same page. If there exists any doctrinal difference between any two of these prestigious American institutions, it is too ineffable for anyone but a Yale man to discern. (Though it may say something that Gray Mirror is not taught at Harvard.)

In 1951, Harvard, Yale, the Times and the Post were on the same page. But Yale in 1951 was on nowhere near the same page as Yale in 2021. If you could teleport either Yale into the other’s time zone, they would see each other as a den of intellectual criminals.

So it’s not just that everyone—at least, everyone cool—is on the same page. It’s more like: everyone is reading the same book—at the same speed. No wonder all the peasants are seeing conspiracies in their motherfucking soup. "

way to mention Curtis Yarvin. one of the next in line to be recognized as a right wing grifter who only cares about being seen as some sort of Thought Leader

also good job dipping your toe (or at least outing yourself outright) into the “Left Can’t Meme” trope

Yarvin has been blogging politics since 2008, he's been in line a long time. I never said the left can't meme. I said the new right weaponized memes to bring in a younger crowd. In 2012 if you told anyone there would be right wing influencers grifting on Instagram and drawing huge fan bases they'd say you were nuts. The right in 2012 was only boomercons who haven't ejaculated this millennium.

Now you can't throw a maga hat without hitting a "grifter" on Instagram/Twitter with their tits out.

The original point I had is Elon can motivate masses of people and he's proved competent in multiple industries. One with deep ties to the military. Any opposition against his Mars plans or Tesla and no telling what he'll do.

The real Elon simps are the ones paying Space X billions of dollars and Tesla billions of carbon credits.

AOC can meme like fuck. Not to mention the OG politician than used the internet Obama. That was my point, in 2012 the conservative side had no hope. They learned to use the internet after and got us Trump.

I'm not backpedaling, if you back go back 50 posts I was just arguing equating him influenced by propaganda on the right is the wrong way to look at it. Elon is using the prevailing winds to further his power and influence.

AOC understands how to get attention. She gets more press on Fox than Fox and Five. I can't think of a better example on the left that so effortlessly gets daily media play for free.

she doesn’t “meme”. she votes/advocates for legislation that will help those who need it

they only cover her because a significant portion of their audience wants to fuck her

Meme isn't the completely precise term. She uses political language, persuasion, social media and propaganda well. That got her elected more so than who may or may not want to fuck her.

One of my fave accounts maintains that list. After the 1st or second autopilot fatality Elon tweeted something about highway deaths being 1 in 90 million miles driven. He said, see autopilot is way safer! Autopilot has driven 130 million miles!

Remember being sad Iron Man would be deliberately misleading.

The antique pistol is a likely replica of something Washington carried. The pistol coupled with the painting think given the Apple posts and what I posted above he's about to strike the first blow against Apple.

It's solidly 1D or maybe 2D.

Quote :
"The paintings commemorate General George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River with the Continental Army on the night of December 25–26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War. That action was the first move in a surprise attack and victory against Hessian forces at the Battle of Trenton in New Jersey on the morning of December 26."

That's just how deep the Deep State goes!

Biden was running a shadow Presidency before he was even fraudulently elected.

Shout-out to everyone who thinks posting links to Tweets or Twitter threads with no explanation, context, or comment passes as discourse. We have some very fine people doing that on both sides.

Twitter just seems spammy and illogically conceived. I don't enjoy trying to make sense of all the shorthand and multi-Tweet threads or understand what are replies, what are related posts, who's replying to whom, etc. It's just a big mess. What's wrong with long-form text? CrazyCode is the pinnacle of web platforms.

Chronological post forums are far and away my favorite social media medium.

IMHO, social media needs to have either a small enough user base that you can become familiar with most of the regular posters, or it needs to be topic specific with enough moderation to keeps things on subject. Anything else becomes a mess.

I agree with that.

I participate in two forums, both with chronological posts. Each one falls into a different category of the two you just explained. Getting used to the hard moderation on the other forum is an adjustment. I got suspended for two weeks over a mounting series of extremely minor infractions.
