SJWs won't be spared



If you are a former CEO of Twitter, you can ignore its community standards and advocate the execution of people with whom you disagree. Graphic via Weasel Zippers.

The gentleman in question, Dick Costolo, got into a Twitter argument with the CEO of Coinbase over whether employees should leave politics at the door. The discussion turned so quickly on him as others joined in that the Coinbase CEO tweeted his undying devotion to BLM. A string of mea culpa followed. It was like North Koreans trying to outdo one another in their mourning of the death of Kim Jong Il in 2011. In that case, you had better signal that virtue or wind up having you and your family taken to the concentration camps. 

I have news for white male CEOs, virtue signaling won't spare you. The revolution that Twitter embraces is communist, and communists will mow down all capitalists. Chairman Xi has his alleged Red Chinese billionaires on a short leash. They will be disposed of when he no longer has to show a capitalist facade. I figure he will do that amid the next Democrat administration.

A regime that slaughtered 100 million of its own people will have no hesitation in executing the running dogs of capitalist imperialism. Costolo's video commentary will be him screaming for his life.

Dandies such as Bill Gates believe that they can go along to get along with Red China. I have two words for them: Hong Kong. Once Red China had established itself, it could dispense with Hong Kong. A communist has no use for well-educated people.

Armstrong had good instincts on divorcing politics from business in the face of all the pro-communism promote by the media. He told employees to knock it off.

Via Hot Air, his memo to employees said: "I want Coinbase to be laser focused on achieving its mission, because I believe that this is the way that we can have the biggest impact on the world. We will do this by playing as a championship team, focus on building, and being transparent about what our mission is and isn’t."

He told employees:
  • Be company first: We act as #OneCoinbase, putting the company’s goals ahead of any particular team or individual goals.
  • Act in service of the greater mission: We have united as a team to try and accomplish something that none of us could have done on our own.
  • Default to trust: We assume positive intent amongst our teammates, and assume ignorance over malice. We have each other’s backs.
  • Focus on what unites us, not what divides us: We help create a sense of cohesion and unity, by focusing on what we have in common, not where we disagree, especially when it’s unrelated to our work.
  • Sustained high performance: As compared to a family, where everyone is included regardless of performance, a championship team makes a concerted effort to raise the bar on talent, including changing out team members when needed.
In short, he did what a CEO is supposed to do. That drew the wrath of the con artists promoting this SJW nonsense.

Hollywood celebrities also are buying into this anti-Americanism hoping to please their new Red Chinese overlords. The Free Tibet movement of the 1990s died when Red China co-opted the movie industry. Even Disney tugs its forelock for Xi. He offers access to four times the people the USA has. It is a mirage. Once Xi takes over, Americans will work for Red China, not the other way around.

After 4 years of everyone in Hollywood conforming to anti-Trumpism, John Cusack raised the stakes. It is not enough to be anti-Trump. People must be virulently anti-Trump.

Via Fox, Cusack tweeted, "I’m blocking anyone who isn’t aggressively anti-Trump until election is over - sorry no time for your BS."

His message is clear: only those who truly and publicly mourn the death of Kim Jong Il, er, hate President Donald John Trump are good enough to read Cusack's tweets.

We are in the midst of a cultural revolution. Cusack will not be spared. In fact, his enthusiasm may do him in because once in power, communists always purge their ranks to enforce loyalty. Wives, mistresses and children will not be spared.

As Cersei Lannister told Littlefinger in Game of Thrones, power is power.

  1. When SJWs try to outdo each other with virtue signaling, it's called a "purity spiral." Think of it as the social justice equivalent of musical chairs: When the music stops, the objective is to ensure that some other SJW catches the bullet.

    1. Thank you, Balkan Yankee -
      I had noticed this behavior increasing in social media, but did not know what was going on or why.

      Thank you for naming and explaining this weird psycho-social phenomenon.

    2. I'll have to remember that one: purity spiral.
      Right up there with "struggle session".

  3. Dick Costolo is not a gentleman. There are many names that describe this man, but gentleman is not nearly an accurate adjective. I hesitate to begin a list as the list would consume too much of my time and energy and he’s not worth the attention.

  4. Let's face facts, Hollywood isn't full of Rhodes scholars. Most of them barely completed high school. On most sets the best boys and grips are far better educated.

    1. Even Rhodes scholars don't fare too well: Rachel Madcow is a Rhodes scholar, and she's totally ignorant. A scholarly ignoramus, if you like!

  5. I blocked John Cusack before he blocked me. But I'll give him credit for figuring out how to be successful as a Hollywood actor with zero charisma and one-dimensional acting chops.

  7. You called it, Don. Other than that, I'd love to read your take on Scott Adams' recent remarks about the debate and hounding of Trump to disavow racism -- again.

    1. Scott should have taken his own advice and waited 48 hours before commenting. He lost some of his viewers over his short sighted analysis. The next day he was more circumspect but I believe the damage was done for some.

  8. It's okay for Roberts to regurgitate years old lies about Trump but can't handle a little criticism of his cynicism. Hilarious.

  9. All of the Left’s virtue-signalers think that their loyalty will save them, as perhaps it has in the past. Except this is not then and the dragon-eating-it’s-tail is now in a tight curl and there’s no longer any escape. Now, the object is getting the monster to eat you last by sacrificing everyone else first.

  10. and communists will mow down all capitalists

    Surber is still living in the 20th century! China isn't about to cut off the trillions they get from foreign capital flows. They aren't stupid like Surber. They saw how the USSR went broke for want of capital.

    So they won't rock the boat at all the gravy train is too sweet. But liberals cry Russia Russia! Neo cons cry China China!

    Both live in fear every day.

    1. Strangely, China seemed okay with rocking the boat by creating the covid virus and then lying, covering-up, hiding the facts, disappearing its own scientists, etc. when it accidentally escaped the lab, and next, restricting travel within China but allowing millions to travel internationally from China.
      As a result, the world economy has been destroyed, temporarily, and China has very effectively "cut off the trillions they get from foreign capital flows."
      Thank God "They aren't stupid like Surber."

    3. Nope.

      USSR went broke trying to compete with capitalism. China intends to crush it.

      Anon lives in fear of everything, including using his name.

  11. I guess Mr. Costolo prefers to be the crocodile's dessert, not his first course.

  12. How did someone as stupid as Costolo get to be CEO of Twitter?

  13. Are SJWs born sociopaths or do they become that when they get woke?

  14. Even if they survive the purges they will lose. The German industrialists who backed Hitler ended up broke like everyone else when the war was over.

    If the Chicoms take over I hope I live long enough to see our capitalist Benedict Arnolds stood up in front of a wall and shot.

    1. As a Christian, I do not wish this end upon then - regardless of how appropriate a sentence it may be. However - my wishes are unlikely to be respected in this case.
