Word from the Dark Side – woke church, what’s happening to BA pilots, watch out for cancellers and a weird morning in Sapporo

This Is Not The Way Home by the Cruel Sea, 1993. Australian band with American singer. You can’t really get lost that easily in the outback – there are so few roads that directions can be as simple as, ‘Go straight, turn left on Wednesday.’

The Anglican Church in Sydney makes a few changes:

Word from the Dark Side – the right to party, crypto revelations, restricting efficacious meds and riding the (mall) lightning

Fight for Your Right by The Beastie Boys, 1986.

I had a request to explain the 80s for the kids via another video clip. This one is as good as any but I can’t be bothered pulling it apart scene by scene. I think you’ll get it. Drink every time something politically incorrect happens.

We no longer fight for our right to paaartay, do we?

All parties are banned across the Philippines until further notice. The rule is not being consistently enforced. After fifteen months, there has yet to be any public health campaign warning people not to share the same cup of rum as traditionally happens at these parties.

They always attempt the hard or impossible but ignore the easy things. ‘Give grandpa his own cup.’ Much as I’d like to chalk this up as yet another piece of Third World incompetence and stupidity, rich countries are doing little better.

I feel like a broken record. Let’s move on.

Winter Solstice by The Tea Party. Bigger wankers the music world has rarely seen, but I like them.

What’s Fauci been up to? Remember, (a) no one is too big to be cancelled and (b) getting enemies cancelled is a fool’s game because there are millions more overeducated twits languishing in casual work desperate to take their places.

Anyway, Fauci still doesn’t win the prize for the world’s dumbest public health officer.

Word from the Dark Side – the Lizardman Constant, lazy studies, long-lived larrikins and leaving money to the government

Teardrop by Massive Attack, 1998. The clip used here is from Ghost in the Shell.

Last week I reported that 8.5% of survey respondents thought they could beat a gorilla in a fight. It seems there is a word for this tendency for ridiculous answers: the Lizardman Constant. Scott puts it at around 4% but I reckon it depends on the demographic and the question. Ask about fighting animals, for example, and you’ll elicit whacky responses from people who just want to see the world burn.

If you had an actual gorilla and invited the audience to throw their hats in the ring, I reckon you’d get less than 8.5% willing to have a shot.

Here’s another example. Perceived social media bias by demographic:

Word from the Dark Side – stirring the melting pot, striking a pose, squeezed to zero and the Sirens of divorce

Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes from the 2002 Thievery Corporation album, The Richest Man in Babylon. I recall liking this song more than the whole album but relistening now, the album’s pretty good it you’re into that sort of thing.

An indigenous academic apologizes for calling a report into African crime ‘racist’ after being informed the author is African. Specifically he’s creole from Mauritius while those getting into trouble are mostly from South Sudan but I doubt she can grasp the significance.

Australia is not ready to discuss this sort of issue without a passably dark-skin person leading the way.

Word from the Dark Side – crushing dissent, cash for comment, cringe award winner and cream puff crime

A paramedic donated $10 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defence fund. The details were leaked and the donor was doxxed and harassed by a Utah news station:

ABC4 News investigative reporter Jason Nguyen went to the man’s home “to get his side of things, but those inside the home didn’t want to talk.” No, you went to his home to do an ambush interview because of your political orientation and you wanted to shame him over $10, when he did nothing wrong. I will not be repeating the man’s name, because it’s disgusting that they ever published it.

The network then harassed the man’s employer for comment on the evil, $10 donation. His employers at the West Valley City Fire Department confirmed the man was an employee and said they would be “conducting an investigation into this matter” but the action was his personal action “not [that] of West Valley City.”

Word from the Dark Side – going to Graceland, gay bar cancelled, Greta and the Unabomber, 35 girlfriends defrauded and Goolag strikes again

Graceland by Paul Simon:

I thought that readers might play these songs as they read the Dark Side but this one has such a touching narrative, you might want to pay attention to the whole thing first. Classic Americana.

Woke is tangled. There was an incident in Melbourne where four police officers on the side of a freeway were accidentally killed by a doped-up Indian truck driver. The man they’d pulled over, also off his tits, then took video and taunted the dying cops. Being a white guy, he became the main story.

One of the cops was a regular at a prominent gay bar. This being the current year, it was no secret and the bar put on blue lights to remember him. Then the Woker-than-thou complained this was inappropriate because of Aboriginal deaths in police custody.

Word from the Dark Side – black beauties and bullies, bitcoin blues, bizarre death and brazen cat burglar pinches Pokemon cards

This is a very good article about how corona hysteria took over the world:

The truth may be that the coronavirus did not blink into existence in Wuhan one year ago. Rather, it had been incubating in the psyche of modern societies for years. The ease with which populations not only acquiesced to governmental restrictions but also wilfully demanded more of them is proof that we had already accepted the premise of the coronavirus lockdowns into our hearts long ago. It is worth noting that almost all the trends and changes that the coronavirus has seemingly unleashed are simply an acceleration of what was preexisting: Atomization, a retreat from the physical world into the digital, a neurotic collective hysteria in the face of death without a spiritual framework, the expectation that the government will provide, a pseudo-religious belief in experts and scientific redemption, and the hyper-politicization of communal activity.

The fact is the physical world has lost its grip over the modern imagination. Going out to earn a living is an almost archaic activity when we are inching towards states so all-encompassing that they will provide a universal basic income driven by fiat money printing. The rise of Bitcoin is a reaction to the feeling that our economies are a giant fiction, running up debts that are never intended to be repaid, presided over by a handful of oligarchs with more wealth than we could ever even imagine. Under these conditions, heading outside and into the office seems terribly outmoded. Likewise, in the digital age, sex has been relegated to a solo activity as pornography supplants procreation for the OnlyFans generation. In the West, there are fewer and fewer communal anchors as pubs and churches close. All of this contributes to the feeling that there is nothing out there in the world of any value, and so the loss of the freedom to go outside and to associate for many has been more an inconvenience than a matter of life and death.

Word from the Dark Side – empty words, enduring enough, eager executioners, ex-rated shipping routes and elderly expats beware

Empty words:

Meanwhile, state and federal officials signal their virtue by parading around—even outdoors—in masks, as if such displays were substitutes for reopening schools and repairing the tremendous damage that has been done to the economy by pointless lockdowns and restrictions.  But this is where we are in America in 2021:  comforting pantomimes and pirouetting around a problem are now seen as substitutes for meaningful action.  No one is willing to step forward and say “enough” in the face of pointless nonsense, for fear of being called a bad name, or for fear of losing his job.  And so the public suffers as a consequence.  The situation cannot persist.  At some point, a terrible price will be paid for this cowardly withdrawal from the responsibilities of leadership.  Our military, too, will eventually pay a terrible price for its failure to assign priority to time-tested principles of combat readiness over politically-correct, delusional social engineering experiments.    

When will we reach our Falling Down moment?

For Britons, perhaps it’s the passing of this law later today, banning “non essential” overseas travel, at almost the precise point the herd/vaccine immunity makes itself clear on the official statistics.

Sorry. WHAT?

Over the 806 years of Common Law, the principle has been consistent: if something isn’t explicitly banned, it’s allowed. Look at how lightly the current crop of politicians are prepared to flip that on its head.

Previously, if a citizen (synonym; “free man“) wished to travel overseas, they would only be prevented for a small list of reasons such as to flee prosecution for a criminal offence, or there was a reasonable expectation they were intending to commit an offence overseas (child abuse, for example).

In 2021, we now have just ten reasons a citizen can cite to not be detained in domestic captivity.

Word from the Dark Side – cringe Covid probe, creepy cult, coordinating fake news and tooth-cracking noodles

The WHO’s investigation into the origins of Covid was a shemozzle. Read the details here to avoid the Wall Street Journal paywall:


They . . . did not understand why China had waited until a few weeks before the international team arrived to test the patients for antibodies, when they may have faded to undetectable levels.

When they asked for the raw, anonymised data, China refused.

The story reveals that none of the three experts the US government recommended to the WHO for inclusion on the team even received a phone call.

Instead, the only US representation was Dr Peter Daszak, an expert in animal-to-human virus transmission whose work with a New York-based non-profit had raised concerns among US officials and scientists about a potential conflict of interest.

Dr Daszak is the president of EcoHealth Alliance, which has in the past provided funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology – the controversial lab pinpointed by the Trump administration as the likely source of the outbreak.

In September 2019, the Wuhan Institute of Virology deleted a public database containing information on at least 16,000 virus samples.

Dr Daszak said when he asked why, Dr Shi responded that they had been forced to take it down after about 3000 hacking attempts.

In an online panel discussion earlier this month, Dr Daszak said it was “absolutely reasonable” that the database was taken offline and revealed the team did not request to see it because he personally vouched for the lab based on his group’s previous collaboration, stating that it was not relevant to the origins of the pandemic.

Since leaving China, however, some members of the team have clarified that they lacked the access, authority or expertise – such as would be required in weapons or biowarfare inspections – to conduct a thorough investigation into the lab leak theory.

#BlueAnon is a term to describe libs and their obsession with Russiagate and other conspiracy theories . . .

. . . [It’s] even banned from the Urban Dictionary, which has definitions for multiple extremely offensive terms whose repetition on Twitter would rapidly lead to my suspension.

It’s back up on Urban Dictionary. Probably SJWs flagged it so the algo made it disappear, then it got reinstated after review. There’s some pretty ripe stuff on UB, which is the point. Didn’t everyone giggle insanely while looking up rude words in the dictionary at school? That’s what they’re there for.

Interesting: the ideal number of children wanted by liberals and conservatives is about the same and has barely changed since the 70s. It’s long been 2.5 for everyone. What has changed is that the actual number of kids per family used to be higher than the ideal and now it is lower:

US military officers are getting dumber:

High IQ is especially important in commanding positions and in the more “g loaded” services. According to a 2015 paper by M.F. Cancian and M.W. Klein, it seems to have been going rapidly down even before the diversity drives of the 2010s. The cognitive performance of US Marine officers has seen a 10 IQ point decline between the 1980s and 2010.

Word from the Dark Side – under the bus, unaware of riots, uppity diplomats and ugly music

Now that Trump is out of the way, the Left can go back to eating itself.

First under the bus is NY governor Cuomo, whose murderous mishandling of Covid was well known to anyone on right wing Twitter many months ago but is only now being exposed to the common people via the legacy media because the importance of blaming everything on Trump has faded. Apparently he got too big for his boots and was considered a rival to the Obama/Kamala faction but this is rumour, I’ve go no evidence.

A White House spokesman named Ducklo was suspended for threatening a reporter in order to cover up their affair. He later resigned. Fancy rooting a bloke named Ducklo.

Also under the bus is Navalny, darling of the Neocon plotters but fallen afoul of the Woke. You’re no longer a prisoner of conscience to Amnesty if you once said something naughty on an unrelated topic.

A dilemma for the Current Year: what to do when dirty stinking Trump supporters are nice to you even though you’re a noble and righteous Biden voter? My emphasis:

These neighbors are staunch partisans of blue lives, and there aren’t a lot of anything other than white lives in the neighborhood.

This is also kind of weird. Back in the city, people don’t sweep other people’s walkways for nothing.
