Toxic #Wokeness and the Ten Principles

It seems some Social Justice Warriors have been riled up on Twitter today. The thread got a bit jumbled up so I’m recreating it here.

Neither of these tweets seems particularly partisan. Both are good questions, but some people seem to be triggered – perhaps because one side of politics doesn’t have good answers.

My response was simple and to the point, referencing The Tin Principles. Sadly, this seemed to only fan the flames of the fans of flames even more:

Here’s the official description of the “Civic Responsibility” Principle:

Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

It’s hard to see how this blog violates this principle in any way. We value civil society here, not a single political party or monoculture. We’re not organizing any events and we’re certainly not breaking any local, state, Federal or international laws.

“I hope you’re ostracized [for having different views to me]” and “GTFO” do not seem to fit the idea of “Radical Inclusion”. Are heterosexual white males no longer welcome at Burning Man?

Unfortunately for Cynthia, Burning Man is still predominantly white, male, and heterosexual.

The most recent Census data from 2019 shows that Burning Man is still 76% white and 1% black; 56% male and 42% female, and 66% heterosexual:

It seems not much has changed demographically since Larry Harvey’s infamous 2015 statement that “black folks don’t like to camp”:

“Steve in Real Life”, who moved from the Bay Area to Reno in 1992, started out strong. Burning Man indeed has a proud history of assholery.

Unfortunately Steve got twiggered by a couple of retweets and decided to throw all the Principles of Burning Man out the window, insult us then block us while joining the call for this blog to be de-platformed:

Summer Burkes then chose to weigh in. She seems to have forgotten her previous work celebrating the gun-toting, Second Amendment loving cowboy history of Burning Man.

Here’s Summer in 2014, misspelling the name of the man she’s glorifying:

Fight Club is a book written in 1996 and then turned into a movie released 15 years ago this fall (we won’t provide any spoilers if we can help it). Author Chuck Pahlaniuk confirmed at several book-release events last year the “Project Mayhem” group in Fight Club’s story is indeed the Cacophony Society in real life … a wackier bunch of people, without the men-only Iron John subplot or all the property destruction and violence. (Well, serious violence, anyway.)

Chuck Palahniuk proudly takes credit for the modern use of the term “snowflake”, and has been called a “darling of the alt-right and AntiFa”.

Chuck believes in Radical Self-Expression and Radical Inclusion, unlike Summer:

The word “heck” is clearly too controversial for Snowflake Summer to say, while calling for the silencing of different viewpoints is completely compatible with her tone of moral superiority:

I have always been quite clear to state that this blog has nothing to do with the Burning Man organization in any way.

Mere minutes before that tweet Summer had quite the potty mouth:

Her plan now is complete de-platforming of any voice she doesn’t agree with. No Radical Self-Expression, Radical Inclusion, Gifting, or Communal Effort for Summer! Will she be successful, or is there still a First Amendment in the Default World?

How does Summer reconcile her cult-like “literal worship” of Larry Harvey with his statements that Burning Man is the poster child for old-fashioned, Main Street Republicanism?

Or what about Larry’s friendship with Republican strategist Grover Norquist, who on Burn Night proudly wore his Russian military uniform (allegedly obtained from shadowy ops arming the Taliban in Afghanistan)?

Grover got his freak on in classic Soviet Military Uniform

I have long advocated here that politics and Burning Man don’t mix, but it seems the Org has a different view, inviting Denis Kucinich to give the Keynote address at the 2015 Global Leadership summit:

2015 was a big year for politics invading the Playa:

We’ll let the late Larry Harvey have the last word:

Can’t we all just get along? I thought that was the entire point of Burning Man.

Caught In The Purge

Thank you to everyone sending messages of support.

Twitter suspended my account @steveouttrim out of the blue, citing “spam and platform manipulation” – neither of which is true. It appears I got caught up in the mass purge of Trump-supporting accounts.

I contacted their support team to appeal, but I don’t hold out much hope as the true motivation behind this seems political rather than their stated reason.

You can still find me there on the account for this blog, @burnersdotme. At least for now…the de-platformers have had me in their sights for a long time, no doubt they will be trying to take that account out soon also.

Twitter was careful to wait until the stockmarket closed before implementing their sweeping censorship. Even so, with a nearly 4% drop in after hours trading this has cost them about $1.6 billion. It is hard to see future upside in the stock if they are deliberately alienating half their user base.


Other Targets

The biggest target of the purge was obviously Donald Trump (89 million followers), who is still President of the United States. He was simultaneously de-platformed on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitch, TikTok, Discord, Shopify, Spotify, Pinterest.

CampaignMonitor, the mailing list provider for his campaign suspended him. Online stores selling Trump-related merchandise were also taken out. The President’s official Twitter account @POTUS is still there but recent messages from Trump were arbitrarily deleted.

Trump’s YouTube channel (2.7m) is still there. Steve Bannon’s War Room YouTube channel (330k subs) was also removed.

Some of the other accounts taken out were much larger than mine (9200 followers):

General Michael Flynn (1.2m)

Michael Flynn Jr

Sidney Powell (1.2m)

Lin Wood (1.1m)

FightBackLaw

Ali Alexander

Duane Cates

Brian Cates

Tracy Beanz (533k)

Rush Limbaugh’s account is gone, but a Twitter spokesperson said his account was deactivated by the user, not by them.

Many accounts that remained reported losing large numbers of followers.


Suspicious Survivors

Some accounts strangely managed to survive the purge:

#SDNY Judge Orders Jason Goodman to Produce Dirty Bomb Docs

Jason Goodman is now involved as Defendant in two lawsuits in the Southern District of New York. The Emmys are suing his company 21C3D for stealing their intellectual property for clicks and subs, with some defamation thrown in; and George Webb’s brother is suing him for defamation and violating New York business law with deceptive conduct involving bots and fake viewers.

The corporate suit from the Emmys forced Jason to employ a lawyer. Despite his self-positioning as a “lawfare expert” and surrounding himself with such colorful attorneys as Alan Dershowitz, Larry Klayman and the Becks, he seems to have picked another kooky A.I. guy John Hoover Snyder.

Jason tried to claim that because his YouTube channel is not monetized, he doesn’t make any money from having a YouTube channel. However if anyone actually watches the channel they will notice that every few minutes he is asking his audience to subscribe to him via the Patreon and SubscribeStar payment gateways to support his lifestyle getting into these lawsuits that drag out for years, in which he has mostly been representing himself pro se. His argument that using YouTube to promote subscriptions on another payment gateway is not making money from YouTube is disingenuous at best, and a bold-faced lie under oath to the Court at worst:

More recently, Jason made an argument to the Court that the Discovery process was so onerous that it would be difficult for him to comply, so he wanted to use his “Crowdsource the Truth” platform (basically, rage walking on a YT channel with government agents, insane crackpots and an occasional good guest – not always different people) to “Crowdsource the Discovery”.

The judge asked “are these people paralegals?”, to which the answer was (presumably) “no they’re a bunch of cat ladies getting their accounts drained automatically every month to Patreon”. Accordingly, this bizarre strategy was DENIED.

Which makes the latest development even more concerning for Jason. Judge Stewart Aaron, the Magistrate Judge assisting former FBI General Counsel Judge Valerie Caproni, just issued an Order outlining the documentation Jason must produce under oath by January 15, 2021 for this case. Looks like he’s going to be a busy beaver over Hanukkah this year.

If Jason omits a URL or social media post, he is committing perjury and could be jailed.

How many thumbnails did we see of Dave in straitjackets, dunce’s caps, janitor’s outfits and so on? Multiple episodes per week, for years, if I recall correctly.

Whatever Jason Goodman provided about Dave Acton to FBI Special Agent Brittany Custer is now going to be handed over to Dave.

The best news of all is that the Dirty Bomb Hoax these LARPers used to shut down the Port of Charleston in an “Active Measures” cyber-attack is on the table:

“All documents” would seem to include Jason’s text messages sent live on air back and forth with Dr Jerome Corsi – who teamed up with Larry Klayman in a “Citizens Grand Jury” to indict Robert Mueller on Jason’s show. Mueller appointed Judge Caproni as FBI Counsel and was her direct boss, around the time that frequent Crowdsource the Truth guest Robyn Gritz (see: #govLARP) was also reporting to Mueller.

Jason has at most 25 interrogatory and document requests, which have been specifically limited in scope to the Plaintiff’s allegations. If he doesn’t file them with the Court by January 15 the Court is going to deem that he has waived his right to Discovery.

Here is the full Order:
