Predictably, just like the last 5 times, fascists mobbed up and falsely reported my Nextdoor comments, locking my account.

This will, of course, satisfy the people who made the false reports, but it will also satisfy me as I explain how easy it is to ignore the temporary ban.

As expected, just after the last post I made about insane people labeling random black people “human traffickers” without any evidence, the same nasty right-wing ideologues falsely reported my comments, which were all clean, advocating sanity, reason, humanism, and caution… in reporting random people in their neighborhoods as “human traffickers”, and now my Nextdoor account is locked for a few more days, lol. This has happened 5 times before, and will likely happen 5 more times before I am done monitoring my despicable right-wing Trumpist neighbors, who congregate and fester there.

On Nextdoor, if I openly call them Trumpists or acknowledge that their “save the children/trafficking” bullshit is Q-anon/Trump fascism, they will immediately call my comments “political” and have me blocked, once more, for “political comments.” Meanwhile Trumpists and Christians constantly speak and post about Trump politics and anti-science nonsense, proselytize in front of everyone, etc, but that isn’t “political”, I’m guessing.

The Luddite goofballs on Nextdoor, who can’t hang on any other social network because those networks don’t allow them to mob up and harass people with as much impunity as ND, caused my account to be locked for “non-neighborly behavior”, once again, which is literally defined by the network as anything they don’t want to see. All that is needed on Nextdoor to censor someone is a few like-minded people who also report their comment, which of course is easy to do on a network populated mainly by paranoid right-wing types and real estate agents. You are either with them, or against!

Motherfuckers, I ain’t your ‘neighbor’. I live near you, but I am an ideological and political adversary, and I feel *nothing* like neighborly toward you as I watch you try to build right-wing fascism in my Bay Area, hurt vulnerable people, participate in house-flipping and try to use the cops against Black people in organized groups via this network.

Nextdoor is literally the online, social media equivalent of Small Town, 1950s America, where blacks, minorities, outsiders, “weirdos”, and people they don’t take kindly to are ostracized, bullied, slandered, attacked, and digitally lynched, leading to them abandoning the garbage network or being pushed out. This of course further homogenizes the people who do fit in there and remain, and reinforces separatist, racist, delusional clots of people who see criminals under every bush. And here we are!

By the way, I hope some of my new fans come by this blog again in the great numbers like they did today, because that was more traffic than I’ve seen in months! I’ll see you on Nextdoor again in a few days, friends, and you can once more gather together, clutch your pearls, fabricate mean things I’ve said to you, and whine at each other again until my account is locked for a few more days. Such is life.

Nextdoor dotcom — a stalking, vigilantism, paranoid-delusional paradise.

I haven’t updated this blog in a bit because I am busy with life, but I decided today would be the day!

Today, some creepy right-wing types on the paranoid-delusional, security-system shilling, Boomer-triggering network Nextdoor, which encourages dangerous vigilantism and mob behavior in my neighborhood, decided to post a link to this very blog, and to gang up together to cry “COMMUNISM” in a very quaint, 1950s-esque way. So I decided to gift them with a post of the likes that they would flag as “non-neighborly behavior” on the cesspool Nextdoor, because I am indeed feeling quite non-neighborly toward them at this point and I would like to share.

For those who don’t know, Nextdoor is one of a small number of new, hyper-localized vigilante apps that sell themselves as “neighborhood watch” or “buy/trade/sell” apps. The app “Citizen” was previously named “Vigilante”, but they were sued because, duh, encouraging vigilantism is bad!

The primary purpose of these networks, if you pay attention to all the promoted and sponsored content as well as the bulk of the user comments and posts, is to sell security systems, services, guns, and related products to people who respond well to the Fox News-esque deluge of racially charged “reports of suspicious behavior” that populate the network every single day. The secondary purpose, as far as I can tell, is to allow people who live in homes to target and harass those living without homes so the neighborhood property values can rise on behalf of landlords, flippers, etc.

Previously Nextdoor had a form you could fill out to “report” people, and the form had “race” featured prominently. This form caused racial targeting of — you guessed it — primarily African Americans, and Nextdoor began to get lots of bad press about this, so they changed the form and prohibited reports based only on race.

Today someone photographed a brand new Mercedes Benz SUV that was driving near the neighborhood park, and this is what motivated me to make this post. The vehicle was driven by an African American female wearing dark glasses, according to the report, and the vehicle “slowed down near the park.” (this is verbatim, their report)

And before I go further, one must keep in mind — our neighborhood is the target of many real-estate investors, house flippers, and potential buyers and renters right now. They are all over the Nextdoor pages offering services, discussing their business, etc. People are constantly coming through, looking for homes. Our neighborhood is one of many neighborhoods receiving thousands of greater Bay Area residents, who were pushed out due to a rental and housing crisis.

So the report about this vehicle, which is not unique at all and happens on this network daily, claimed that there was something suspicious about the Black lady driving by the park, but did not provide any specific reason WHY this behavior was suspicious. The very first reply to the report was “I bet this was human trafficking”, and away the threads went.

The next comment? “Yeah this looks suspicious. Get the license plate and send it in to MPD(local PD).” Next comment, “yeah if she was looking at the kids, this was probably human trafficking.”

Based on NO evidence, the people on Nextdoor — in *my* Bay Area neighborhood, 50 miles east of Berkeley — decided that an African American female driving a pretty nice Mercedes must be a human trafficker, and one user suggested “maybe she’s stealing packages.” This report is not unique. There are other reports like this from today, and yesterday, and last week, and the month before, and they all read the same. The replies are the same. Everyone they don’t recognize, or who acts in a way they deem suspicious (driving slowly, looking at houses, looking at parks, asking for directions, taking pictures, etc) need to be “ID’ed”, according to the regulars on these networks, and everyone needs to “be aware of the rising danger in our neighborhood.”

And it is the same in *every single* Nextdoor local neighborhood. The network is broken up into “neighborhood groups”, and a “neighborhood manager” is selected from the group. Each neighborhood manager, along with like-minded neighbors, mob up and decide what is “neighborly behavior” on the network. Mind you, this doesn’t just mean personal attacks or nasty comments. This means *anything* these people decide is not “neighborly”.

In summary, Nextdoor dotcom is an increasingly dangerous, caustic, unethical system whereby like-minded neighbors can use mobile devices and technology to organize and act AGAINST the unhoused, “unknown” people, minorities, and anyone they deem “suspicious”, like we all live in little homogenized, Caucasian, Christian 1950s neighborhoods. Word of advice to the Nextdoor people:


Gamestop? Yes, lets increase a stealthy military recruiter’s stock prices to own the short sellers.

Let me see if I understand this.

A mob of Reddit users from a sub-Reddit known for alt-right membership, Trumpism, video games, and… investment strategies, decided to make Short Sellers hurt by INCREASING the value of their held stocks through small dollar investments made en masse via social media. Gamestop is the video games retailer with online job postings like these. Parents — you might want to read those job postings.

The result of this rush of small $ investments is the fund holding Gamestop (and others) stock is becoming unstable and may collapse because they were betting on the stocks *going down*, not up. When a hedge fund collapses, they lose the portfolio that was within that fund and another larger investor can gobble up the remains on the cheap, good and bad. Any small $ investors who bought stock during the rush would need to sell quickly or risk losing what they spent. Many have willingly lost money as they believe they are “owning the bad guys on Wall St.”

The end result? GME (Gamestop) stock prices will fall back down to where they were because the money wasn’t reinvested in Gamestop and they aren’t profitable, but the $13 billion dollar hedge fund that held the majority of their stock will probably go bankrupt and close due to short-term payouts to Reddit investors. Now, a large firm (right now investors are saying BlackRock) can come along and buy up the remains of that portfolio, and millions of small $ investors are out their principal investments and any transaction fees paid.

On top of the above, the media are beginning to report on connections between Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, and a handful of others, who are associated with these activities (using memes and social media power to achieve political and private goals) and are currently on social media *cheering on* what is happening as a “populist uprising.”

Something stinks with the “populist uprising” that invests, believes it is the same as the Occupy Wall St movement, and has nebulous connections to right-wing capitalist grifters. Stop and think, friends.

The best thing to come out of this is of course education. Many people now see how corrupt and easily exploited the stock market can be, as well as how un-free free-market capitalism can become when you try to game it as it games you.

Gamers are all masochists, now?

Many game franchises today, typically after receiving comments and pressure from the hardXcore community, feel like they must update their games post-release to include “extra extra intense nightmare difficulty levels – permanent deathhhhhh” because modern gamers, living through pandemics, economic collapse and subsequent looting covered up by pandemics, late-stage capitalism, and open fascism, don’t get enough stress outside the home.

Sedition? For my constitutionally protected, non-threatening free speech? Bring it on, fascists!

So the fascists who control the US government are making mouth noises about charging anyone who says “Trump should die from the virus”, or just “Trump should be dead/I hope he dies” with *Sedition*, a felony that can carry the death penalty. I thought I should respond to this.

They aren’t calling for people who make specific threats of violence against specific people to be charged, as the law currently proscribes, but they want “sedition” charges for anyone who says “I hope Trump dies”, as fascists will do when you allow them to take power and dictate the narratives of your reality.

I felt like this was a good opportunity to update my blog, as I’ve been avoiding it in favor of brooding, clenching my jaw, and generally avoiding confronting the fact that this may end up bringing us to a civil war before we can free ourselves, and so here are a few supportive words for the president’s real or faked viral disease.

Like any relatively sane person alive, I hope that Donald Trump dies horribly and slowly of the covid, but I hope that his malignant narcissism guides him to do it publicly and on camera so that the populations he has harmed can see it with their own eyes. The American people and many around the world would benefit greatly from seeing this, and perhaps once Trump and his fascist goonsquad are dead and/or exiled, then maybe America can try to be Great Again, perhaps for the first time in 200 years of perpetual war, classism, and Caucasian, Judeo-Christian oligarchy.

Trump’s death would be an objectively positive event for the majority of people alive today. Prove me wrong.

Sadly, the entire thing may have been faked for the opportunity to write more religious propaganda for the Q cult and/or the religious zealots that make up most of his base, but one can hope!

Happy False Revolutionary War Day, Murderous Americans! Time to celebrate who and what you are!

Happy flag-pole noise day, patriots! Rah rah!

This is your day to demonstrate uncritical fealty to the blood-sucking parasites who’ve pitted us all – workers everywhere – against one another for hundreds of years as they maintain and reinforce the perpetual poverty and suffering you blame on black people, ‘outsiders’ and freaks, and/or some ridiculousness you saw on Fox/Breitbart/YouTube, etc.

You should brazenly detonate the loudest quasi-legal explosive devices you can get your hands on for your PTSD-suffering neighbor and their cowering animals, set some houses on fire by way of drunks and alpha-men managing your aerial displays, and generally make obnoxiously loud noises that sound like bombs and bullets in the faces of ANY and ALL in your neighborhood because, lets face it — this really is an appropriate way to celebrate what and who we are!

WAR SOUNDS, IN YOUR FACE! Don’t like it? Here’s 10 more! AMERICAAAAAA

From the very start of this merchant-capitalist colony gone awry, a controlled narrative has been in play that glosses over this nation’s inhumane acts and embellishes and highlights any acts that can be portrayed as good. This is the essence of the America First narrative and its coerced and censored public school history texts, its popular media and Hollywood portrayal, its civilian and governmental army of patriotism-evangelists and Evangelist patriots – who WILL NOT take no for an answer – and the like.

Speaking of narrative control, do you think the first war was a noble and good war? What sort of revolution was at the heart of the Revolutionary war, friends?

Since we are presumably celebrating the independence of this great nation from monarchy, which was a system that featured a church/state merger and a peasant class of worker who were perpetually poor so that the monarch, their family, and the aristocracy could live off their backs, lets talk about why our first war was fought, who fought it, and what they thought about it all at the time.

A few paragraphs to hopefully summarize– the goal of this independence was to allow the wealthy merchant-capitalist aristocracy, who did not wish to pay taxes to nor be controlled by the crown or the church, to separate from that arrangement and control their destiny, including trade partners. The wealthiest of the early American colonists whipped up a sense of patriotism in the poorer colonists by way of promises of happiness and prosperity, religious freedom, etc, but the prosperity would always favor a certain class of American at the expense of everyone else, and the contrived patriotism seen in colonists early-on evaporated as war with the British loomed.

There were large numbers of colonist workers, many who were simple farmers or tradespersons throughout early America, who did not care enough to desire a war with the British, and did not want to fight. Additionally the war was, as always, a war fought by the poor, prisoners, slaves, immigrants, and the lower ‘classes’. Wealthy families literally paid poor people to serve for them, or forced them through other arrangements. Many enslaved Africans fought, and not only on the side of the Americans. Some colonists even had their weapons seized by Washington, who claimed he would not return them unless those colonists agreed to fight the British.

The truth of that first war was, like the truth of every single of our wars, engagements, ‘peacekeeping missions’, or whatever we called it at the time, which is that the poor fought for the goals and aspirations of the rich, who allowed them to die for the economic order that the rich would now control.

We continue to live, work our days away, and die in non-defensive wars for causes that the vast majority of the population have no reason to be involved with at all, and it seems we have clearly defined what sort of ‘revolution’ this first war was; this was a revolution of the rich, who needed a working, fighting force to build America into a great wealth generation system for a few extremely fortunate dynasties and rich families, and they couldn’t have won any wars or extracted a single dime from the land we call ‘America’ without *us*.

Hard pass on Fourth of July, thanks. We will celebrate the struggles of the victims of capitalism on a day like today, such as the indigenous, black and brown folks, immigrants, and the millions of civilian primary, secondary, and tertiary dead we’ve caused around the world in our various theaters, and I’ll do it to the rhythm of your bombs blasting, just like they do in those victim nations all around the world.

We don’t work for family, community, or nation any longer, so why do we work? For whom do we work?

The ‘work’ we do every day went far beyond working for our families, our communities, and our nation a very long time ago, before many of us were even born, and the value of that work is no longer returning to us in ways that benefit us. In fact, the “surplus” value of our labor is being increasingly turned against us by those who ensure we don’t have control over it.

Now we work first and foremost for the capitalist oligarchy and its globe-dominating military, police, and intelligence systems, and what paltry energy and resources remain after they plunder us are allowed to trickle down, maintaining permanent insecurity, classism, fear, obedience, and political, ideological paralysis.

It is time to return to a formula that works for all, and one which supports and enriches our families, our communities, and our nation from the ground up – and treats us all with respect and dignity – as it must be in any healthy, functioning society. Why else would a species group up and develop into societies? To make life *harder* and less satisfying for the vast majority of participants so that a tiny slice of the population can live better than kings? Is that why we built all of this?

I think not. #GeneralAction now! Continue what we’ve started!
