Discharge
Author: Raine    Date: 08/06/2018 13:11:51

This morning I woke up to find that most of Infowars had been removed from iTunes and a few moments ago this broke.
We believe in giving people a voice, but we also want everyone using Facebook to feel safe. It’s why we have Community Standards and remove anything that violates them, including hate speech that attacks or dehumanizes others. Earlier today, we removed four Pages belonging to Alex Jones for repeatedly posting content over the past several days that breaks those Community Standards. Here’s more detail on enforcement of our standards:


Along the same vein of getting rid of bad rubbage, it was announced a few days ago that
Lance Cpl. Vasillios Pistolis has been given the boot.
“The Marine Corps’ stance on membership in extremist or hate groups remains the same: there is no place for racial hatred or extremism in the Marine Corps,” Block wrote in a message to The Daily News. “Our strength is derived from the individual excellence of every Marine regardless of background. Bigotry and racial extremism run contrary to our core values.”

Pistolis faced a summary court-martial on June 18, following investigations into violations of Articles 92 and 107 of the Uniform of Military Justice, according to a statement from Samir Glenn-Roundtree, communication strategy and operations officer for the 2nd Marine Logistics Group. Pistolis was sentenced to 28 days of confinement at the brig, a reduction in rank to private and a forfeiture of two-thirds pay for one month.

In reports published by Frontline PBS and ProPublica, Pistolis allegedly participated in the Unite the Right rally held Aug. 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia. At the same time as serving as an active duty Marine, Pistolis also belonged to a white supremacist group called the “Atomwaffen Division,” a guarded Neo-Nazi ensemble whose members claim they are prepping for a coming race war.


I have to wonder how many more are in our Armed forces. Perhaps this will shed light on it?
Throughout the case, which he initiated, Kessler claimed he would expose the Charlottesville government’s bias against him. But the only people Kessler ended up exposing were his associates on the racist right. During the case’s discovery process, Kessler ended up turning over text messages, emails, and chat logs, where he had talked with other Unite the Right participants.Kessler also turned over his Facebook messages, logs from the chat platform Discord, and chats from the encrypted messaging services Signal and Telegram. In some cases, those surrendered messages revealed the personal information of Kessler’s collaborators, which are now part of public court record.

In one case, included in court records, Kessler turned over emails from a person using the email handle “lionofgod1488”. Although Kessler has publicly tried to distance himself and his next rally from obvious neo-Nazis, “1488” is one of the best-known neo-Nazi slogan, a code that refers to the white supremacist “14 words” and to “heil Hitler.”


The nastiest discharge is hate, maybe this is the beginning of a cleansing.

Happy Monday!

and
Raine

Mornin' all!

I've run up against with Facebook's "Community Guidelines" many times over the years when reporting posts, people & pages for abusive behavior, only to be told over & over that what I've reported doesn't violate those guidelines. So forgive me for being extremely skeptical of their efforts, despite the recent nuking of Jones & IW.

Morning

Back to the real world of work *sigh*.

Very much yes about making the hateful scared to show their faces again.

“Collusion with Russia was very real. Hillary Clinton and her team 100% colluded with the Russians, and so did Adam Schiff who is on tape trying to collude with what he thought was Russians to obtain compromising material on DJT. We also know that Hillary Clinton paid through....


....a law firm, eventually Kremlin connected sources, to gather info on Donald Trump. Collusion is very real with Russia, but only with Hillary and the Democrats, and we should demand a full investigation.” Dan Bongino on @foxandfriends Looking forward to the new IG Report!

Good morning bloggers!!!

So, when charges against Trump and his inner circle are filed, will the Fox and Fiends crowd call for civil war?

Is it weird that I actually like building the kit furniture? Save for the heat, it kind sounds like fun to fresh things up.

Living in the basement isn't cool in this heat. I have been melting down here. And I had to buy a new laptop because the motherboard fried on my year and a half old model.

I prefer 'em too, it's like putting together a puzzle! Only with forearm cramps from excessive screwdriver use.

Wow, you'd think it would be cooler on a lower level.

As Wonkette has said, NO YOU'RE THE COLLUSION!

It's supposed to be cooler. I don't know if having too much stuff is warming up the room. It's not as hot when I go into the hall or use the bathroom.

Sounds like a ventilation issue.

Can you get an AC from the landlord?

if you don't have a window, you can ask for something like this.

I was actually thinkin' about buying one of these. It's been so stupidly hot this year that my lil window unit is totally overwhelmed.

I'm with Mala on this issue.

This doesn't sound healthy. We don't have AC in our basement but I can cool it down with fans and the open window.

So they can go home and get killed.

This is getting more and more scary.

Not to mention the fact that we already know they've renditioned parents w/o their kids & kids w/o their parents to countries that they didn't necessarily come from... I wouldn't put it past this Administration to be working with Ortega or other dictators to do the dirty work.

I am going to get darker than you, Scoop -- I expect detention centers in other countries.

I pray I am wrong.

Remember that W was using prisons in Eastern Europe to rendition and torture people.
