Blow Up the Wells? Denver Post Ignores Violence-Favoring Opponent of Fracking

Posted on 30 April 2017

Let’s imagine that an activist for a conservative cause supported committing physical violence up to and including murder against people doing things he or she sees as “immoral” in a letter to the editor at a local newspaper, and that this same person was behind a state ballot initiative designed to limit the activities of those “immoral” people. No one would reasonably expect that the leading newspaper in the state involved would for all practical purposes ignore this person’s activities. But from all appearances, the Denver Post has virtually ignored the violence-advocating Andrew O’Connor, as well as his co-sponsorship of a Colorado ballot initiative to double the severance tax on the “immoral” oil and gas industry, since April 19.

History reveals itself, first as bombast, second as farce

History reveals itself, first as bombast, second as farce

Today: No Supremacist Kubism, no Hyperventilation, no Climatism.
Just a lightweight iconographic overfly of the glorious celebration of May 1st, along the timeline.

Dawn.

1889 (iconic; by Walter Crane; original English; variants in many other languages).
Designed for the very first celebration of the (international) Worker’s Day, on May 1st, 1890.

Pic: One leg in French Revolution, one leg in Marx & Engels. Liberté-Égalité-Fraternité as leitmotif.
The reality of 20th century Collectivisms not even on the horizon yet.

Optimistical, encompassing all continents. No indication of “struggle” & “smash” & “revolution”.
Stylistically a piece of early Art Nouveau, rising by then from Britain’s Arts and Crafts movement.
~

1901. German Maifeier. No exuberant pathos. Radiant Future in sky. A verse reminding “servants of mammon” not to take bread away from “the people” and not to play “like Huns”.

No “smashing”, “slashing”, “squashing”. No “burning”.

Early spring.

1917. (and Art Nouveau – after blooming and maturing in West Europe – goes Russia!)

LONG LIVE THE FEAST DAY OF WORKERS OF ALL COUNTRIES!

The menacing mob, it’s not “capitalists, bourgeois and other vermin” on their way to squash the ephemera. It’s the “masses”. By then, it’s not yet СССР – it’s РСФСР (1917-1922), the proto-СССР.
Their signs say: PROLETARIANS, UNITE and LONG LIVE COMMUNISM and LONG LIVE РСФСР.

1920. Woman! and ethnicities!

Marx & Engels! (nothing to lose but chains)

(embracing ethnic groups – will become a constant visual meme, as РСФСР, later CCCP, expands)

Spring.

1920. Former “menacing mob” (= “masses”) now taking standard (& heroic) shape.

Worker. Peasant. Woman!
Scythe. Sickle! Hammer!
Exuberance! Ethnicities! Internationalism! GERMAN PROLETARIAT too! (says a sign).
And under their feet – commented:

THROUGH THE RUBBLE OF CAPITALISM TO BROTHERHOOD …

So Much for Fame: John Kasich’s New Book Sinks and Sinks on Amazon

Posted on 30 April 2017

Ohio governor and failed presidential candidate John Kasich had his new book, Two Paths: America Divided or United, published on April 25 and after just the first week it has already sunk beneath the waves of public disinterest to #264 as of this writing on Amazon. It doesn’t take any great genius to figure out that he thinks President Donald Trump represents the “Divided” while the son of a mailman is somehow the enlightened “United.”

99 Problems: NY TImes Unwittingly Reveals Own Bias With Collection of Trump Headlines

Posted on 30 April 2017

Saturday’s New York Times featured the paper unwittingly showing its anti-Trump tilt, with a full page “story’ featuring the first 99 days of headlines from its coverage of the Trump Administration, in “(Almost) 100 Days Of Front Page Headlines About No. 45.” While the Times obviously thinks its headlines stand by themselves as some objective and reliable historical recording of the ebb and flow of the Trump Administration, in fact the word, subject, and tonal choices reveal a political double standard.
