Here Stefan Molyneux is the most outrage I have ever seen him, but with good reason.
Why not cap it off with some more Stefan…

We will add it soon.
If you support Ronda Rousey, you support domestic violence.
Just because the Australian government has a double standard it doesn’t mean you should.
Last weekend saw another anti-mosque protest in Bendigo, this time by the UPF (United Patriots Front), , mostly ex-military out of towners who are using the anti-mosque sentiment in Bendigo for their own purposes . It appears that while actual Bendigo citizens joined the rally, some of the Bendigo anti mosque action groups distanced themselves from this subtle take-over. One of the typical signs of any protest movement are the splinter groups which eventually result. The UPF itself being a splinter group of the more moderate Reclaim Australia.
All things being equal, though, all these groups have a common goal of trying to prevent the spread of Islam in Australia, as it has begun to reveal itself worldwide for the violent hate cult it really is . While the military posturing and patriotic flag waving might be unpalatable and offensive to middle class sensibilities, so far it hasn’t actually harmed anyone, which is more than can be said for the aggressive and violent left wing black bloc in particular
On the other side of the fence (or bridge in this instance), a leftie group from Melbourne ,called No Room for Racism, which drew attention to itself at the last Bendigo protest in August by being violent, intolerant and aggressive, culminating in the burning of an Australian flag and the resulting scuffle which led to the use of pepper spray by the police.
It’s interesting that the left wing protesters were easily kept in check by the police behind the bridge in Rosalind park so they were unable to confront the UFP, even thought here are plenty of ways to enter the park from the other side and if they had been real citizens of Bendigo they would have known this.
Because of the amount of drama caused by No Room for Racism in August, they could only attend the latest rally by coming up with a new name : Bendigo Action Group are basically the same people as No Room for Racism, a group which is rumoured to be founded and funded by socialist party Yarra City counciller Stephen Jolly. Many of the same faces that have turned up at protests in the last 4 years were also seen in Bendigo on the weekend, including, notably, the politically neutral Kenji Wardencliffe (of Wardencliffe photograpy) who was there to take photos .
Here is an example of his work and the cognitive dissonance it captures perfectly :
I contacted Bendigo Action Coalition (who should more aptly be named Melbourne Controlled Opposition) on their Facebook page with the question of the connection between Stephen Jolly , No Room for Racism and Bendigo Action Coalition). The question was deflected by the use of several fallacies and now I am not able to post on their page anymore, another typical example of leftist free speech in action. Why not just answer the question with yes or no rather than making a huge song and dance ? I guess the answer to that is obvious : I got too close to the truth.
Here are the screen shots, one contains a draft of my reply and the other what I actually ended up sending which got me banned from posting on the page, confirming the old Communist proverb : ” We believe in Free Speech as long as you agree with us, if not we shut you up and kill you.”

This seemed appropriate.
The chaser has spoken, they are definitely on the money for this one.
One of the weird consequences of the 2008 financial meltdown and the measures taken to counteract it (enormous sums of money to help banks) was the revival of the work of Ayn Rand, the closest one can get to an ideologist of the “greed is good” radical capitalism. The sales of her opus Atlas Shrugged exploded. According to some reports, there are already signs that the scenario described in Atlas Shrugged – the creative capitalists themselves going on strike – is coming to pass in the form of a populist right. However, this misreads the situation: what is effectively taking place today is almost the exact opposite. Most of the bailout money is going precisely to the Randian “titans”, the bankers who failed in their “creative” schemes and thereby brought about the financial meltdown. It is not the “creative geniuses” who are now helping ordinary people, it is the ordinary people who are helping the failed “creative geniuses”.
John Galt, the central character in Atlas Shrugged, is not named until near the end of the novel. Before his identity is revealed, the question is repeatedly asked, “Who is John Galt”. Now we know precisely who he is: John Galt is the idiot responsible for the 2008 financial meltdown, and for the ongoing federal government shutdown in the US.
The first thing you need to know about Zizek is that he is a Marxist who grew up in a communist country Yugoslavia, which disintegrated into a bitter and protracted civil war after the fall of the Soviet Union. Both of his parents were the privileged elites in Yugoslav society, his father an economist and his mother an accountant both of whom worked for the massive state apparatus. Zizek fails to see that Marxism-communism was to blame for the failures that ultimately destroyed his homeland and simply continued to promote Marxism in other places. While its fair to say that Zizek has some interesting thoughts about people’s perceptions of the world they are in, and different ways of looking at things, this alone does not put him any closer to the truth. Zizek fails to offer an alternative to the current system and even fails to define what will trigger the revolution from it. So Zizek is still failing in to provide anything useful. His criticism of the current system are more like attacks on possible solutions. Zizek is a Marxist and that fact alone is enough to discredit him, but I will show his flawed thinking process with what he wrote above.
Zizek is attacking Ayn Rand, a free market capitalism proponent. So as they have wildly divergent world views as criticism is not going to be fair, especially considering Ayn Rand had been dead for decades before Zizek makes his criticism.
The ‘greed is good’ style capitalism is still predicated (like almost every other economic system ) on laws existing and being enforced. The bank bailout we an example of the opposite of Randian titans, the banks failed, and in a Randian world they would not be considered titans, they were fraudsters whose Ponzi scheme had collapsed. They were the exact opposite of titans, they were charlatans. In the Randian world there would not be a government with enough resources to bailout titanic business failures and no government would feel any political motivation to do so. Ina Randian world the banksters would have been bankrupted, many of the parties involved would have been charged with crimes of fraud, tax evasion and money laundering and for a few, treason and supporting terrorism. What of the depositors and mortgage holders? In a bankruptcy of a bank, a new bank, (not made up of the previous criminals) buys up the assets and liabilities of the previous bank and everyone is a little wiser and more wary for the experience. This process is how a Randian system self corrects and reduces tyranny. The rules must be enforced, or ultimately there are no rules, just privilege. Privilege in it’s truest sense meaning Privi (private) Legis (law), private law, special hidden rules for some people. This privilege is what we saw in the bank bailouts. Even the word privilege is under attack now in the USA with its meaning being perverted into an anti white and male agenda, while simultaneously reducing those groups rights in law. The bankster crisis of 2008-present was forged through two separate processes. Firstly the relaxation of banking regulation and freedom from the government with banksters claiming Randian ideals because it suited their agenda. Secondly was the switch to demanding privilege and government protection just like corrupt communist organs of the state. All of this shows not a Randian idealogy, but ‘bait and switch’ opportunism and utter disrespect for any ideology or concept of law.
But this is the world we inherit once we have abandoned logic and reason. So welcome to the world of the absurd, you may have noticed we have a certain focus on the absurd here.
While Zizek is correct in pointing out the obvious that the ordinary person is now being forced to support the banksters fraud and folly. Zizek fails to recognize that the state is enforcing the that wealth transfer, just like how in Marxist-communist nations the state routinely propped up inefficient industries (and their corrupt leadership) and the ordinary people’s expense. So ultimately what Zizek has done is construct a strawman and then knock it down.
Zizek lastly mentioned the federal shut down which was really a show of state power, some privately owned and operated nature parks were shut down by the government. Why would the government shut down a private business because the government was unable to control its spending? A show of tyranny, bow down to us and give us more money or else. Logic and reason had gone out the window. Zizek absolutely fails to recognize the tyranny of the state in the bank bailouts, even thought its the most significant factor in continuing the debacle. Another strawman attack while avoiding criticizing state tyranny.
While many left wing commentators cite Zizek ( the latest Marxist doyen) they fail to critically analyze the obvious holes in his logic.
Of course Marxist commentators will always fail to mention the role of central banking to Marxism, and this was the exact cause of the 2008 sub prime crisis, the creation of money that does not have real value. Central banking is the same as the idiom ” (don’t) count your chickens before they have hatched” central banking back systems take this to the next level and “sell your chickens before they have hatched”. This then made a market for hypothetical chicken certificates which ran ‘red hot’, until one man said can I have 3 actual chickens, it was soon discovered that no chickens had hatched and all the certificates were worthless.
This brings us back to Zizek himself, because the premises of Marxism-communism are flawed, anything that comes out of it is equally worthless and dangerous if relied upon.
the Marxist-communist political-economic system does not work, anywhere it is implemented it is doomed to a brutal oppressive failure. Marxists throw all of those failures into a memory hole and simply pretend they don’t exist. I have even had radical communist try to tell me that the Soviet Union wasn’t communist and communism had never been tried before. Other communists will give the magical cure promise whereby they claim once the whole world is ( marxist/islamic/feminist/insert ideology here) all problems will be solved and utopia will exist. Clearly this ‘give me the whole world and ill fix it’ approach is wildly narcissistic, delusional, akin to magical thinking and contradicted by looking at the given ideology already operating at a smaller scale.
So in the end Zizek has a Yugoslavia size memory hole, and its almost big enough to hide all the other inconvenient facts which ruin his arguments. It’s all mental masturbation a distraction and a waste of time.
Reality ruining your argument? Zizek says just claim reality doesn’t exist!
And so on..
We had a quick look at it and we decided we liked it, so there you go comrade, mission accomplished!
We also have an exclusive offer for signed copies for the first 200,000 people that form an orderly line outside St Kilda Police complex in Melbourne on Monday the 12th of October at 9:00 am.
From the media, but was not widely reported:
“Ahmed’s clock was hardly his most elaborate creation. He said he threw it together in about 20 minutes before bedtime on Sunday: a circuit board and power supply wired to a digital display, all strapped inside a case with a tiger hologram on the front.
He showed it to his engineering teacher first thing Monday morning and didn’t get quite the reaction he’d hoped for.
“He was like, ‘That’s really nice,’” Ahmed said. “‘I would advise you not to show any other teachers.’”
(The engineering teacher was probably bemused by such a pointless “invention.”)
“According to Irving police, Ahmed’s case contained a digital clock that the student had taken apart and rearranged. Police said the student had the briefcase in his English class, where he plugged it into an electrical outlet and it started to make noise.”
I’ve looked at the photo of the clock, and I agree. It’s simply the innards of a commercial product–nothing worth showing off to an engineering teacher.
“Officers said Ahmed was being “passive aggressive” in his answers to their questions, and didn’t have a “reasonable answer” as to what he was doing with the case.”
And now my own commentary.
So of course while he is doing this he is wearing a NASA t shirt , for maximum “I’m so misunderstood” points.
So all of this is:
1 ) A bomb hoax.
2) Race baiting and religion baiting.
3) A massive publicity stunt.
4) Actually making it more difficult to react to terrorism.
5) A kid who is a fraud pretending to be talented where as in actual fact he a vandal.
He didn’t make a clock he did the opposite, he took a working clock and and tore it to pieces to the point all it would do was beep.
This little scumbag even made a twitter account with his twitter account name IStandWithAchmed and then used the same name as his own hashtag, all for maximum media impact.
The media is so infested with brainwashed Social Justice Warriors and retarded Marxists, so they all took the bait.
This little punk then gets the following:
Here is picture of the little terrorist fraudster:
In case you are wondering what amazing invention he has with him, it looks a lot like the back of an old computer motherboard with a bunch of unrelated wired and an old speaker (in other words useless junk). All these props to create the impression of some sort of talent where there is clearly none. Just like having glasses doesn’t make you smart, having a bunch of wires doesn’t make you an electronics technician.
There you go, another Muslim ‘hero’.
A vandal, a fraud, a liar, a terrorist. I wonder he will grow up to rape and murder?
