Chris Hedges: The Silencing Of Dissent

The Silencing Of Dissent:

The ruling elites, who grasp that the reigning ideology of global corporate capitalism and imperial expansion no longer has moral or intellectual credibility, have mounted a campaign to shut down the platforms given to their critics. The attacks within this campaign include blacklisting, censorship and slandering dissidents as foreign agents for Russia and purveyors of “fake news.”

No dominant class can long retain control when the credibility of the ideas that justify its existence evaporates. It is forced, at that point, to resort to crude forms of coercion, intimidation and censorship. This ideological collapse in the United States has transformed those of us who attack the corporate state into a potent threat, not because we reach large numbers of people, and certainly not because we spread Russian propaganda, but because the elites no longer have a plausible counterargument.

AND NOW: Climate alarmists demand imprisonment of climate change skeptics … want to charge them with MURDER

You really can’t make this stuff up!

Climate alarmists demand imprisonment of climate change skeptics … want to charge them with MURDER:

It’s official: The last vestiges of common sense have now finally gone out the window. The Washington Times is reporting that climate alarmists are calling for those who do not buy into the catastrophic man-made global warming narrative to be jailed … for murder! That’s right folks; if you don’t accept the idea that humans are causing temperatures to soar at an alarming rate and destroying the planet, you’re a murderer – and must be punished as such.

Recent headlines clearly reflect the increasing frustration felt by climate change fanatics.

A September 1 headline in Outline declared, “Climate change denial should be a crime,” with writer Brian Merchant claiming, “In the wake of Harvey, it’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable.”

An article a week later in the Nation boldly stated that, “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” with the writer angrily declaring that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

Alejandro Villanueva Defies Steelers’ Anthem Protest, Takes Field Hand Over Heart

Alejandro Villanueva Defies Steelers’ Anthem Protest, Takes Field Hand Over Heart:

All but one of the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to protest by staying in their locker room, during the playing of the national anthem at this afternoon’s game in Chicago. The lone dissenter was former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva who bucked the team’s decision and took the field, anyway, hand over his heart and helmet under his arm.

On Sunday morning, reports emerged that the Steelers had decided to stay in their locker room despite league rules requiring the team to be on the sidelines during the playing of the national anthem.

By game time, the team did, indeed, fulfill their announced intentions. However, Villanueva defied his team and took the field:

DHS is Giving Colleges Millions to Stoke a Nation of Fear and Grow the Police State

DHS is Giving Colleges Millions to Stoke a Nation of Fear and Grow the Police State:

The majority of the corruption in the United States—from warrantless surveillance to endless wars, to unregulated spending—can be tied back to a number of government agencies that operate with no oversight, and face no accountability. One of the most important factors that is often ignored is where this influence begins, and how these agencies find their recruits.

H/t reader squodgy:

“The odious stench of George Soros pervails in all of this.”

Swedish woman attacked bloody by unknown man yesterday while out walking – She was only saved by her dog that bit the attacker.

Google translation:

“The man was about 175 cm tall, had a dark hoodie and dark jeans. Linn never saw him from the front, and therefore can not say anything about the man’s appearance, but he was really bitten in the leg and is probably badly injured.”

The Equifax Hack Is The Most Disastrous Data Breach In History Because Now Hackers Have The Credit Information Of 143 Million Americans

The Equifax Hack Is The Most Disastrous Data Breach In History Because Now Hackers Have The Credit Information Of 143 Million Americans:

Talk about a nightmare.  It is being reported that criminals were able to hack into Equifax and make off with the credit information of 143 million Americans.  We are talking about names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, home addresses and even driver’s license numbers.  If this data breach was an earthquake, we would be talking about a magnitude-10.0 on the identity theft scale.  We have never seen anything like this before, and to say that this will be “disastrous” for the credit industry would be a massive understatement.

What really disturbed me about this story is that this hack reportedly occurred between “mid-May and July of this year”
