In a Year of Wild Conspiracy Theories, Super Bowl Sex Trafficking Is a Classic

Plus: A reminder that censorship backfires, Wyoming city considers ban on "performance prostitution," and more...

|

The Super Bowl shows how truly mainstream sex trafficking conspiracy theories are. With Super Bowl LV coming up this Sunday, the now-routine round of warnings about sex trafficking around the big game has once again surfaced. (There's even an art awareness project that involves goats, and special spot-a-trafficker training for Uber drivers.)

So, here is your annual reminder that there's no truth to the idea that forced and underage prostitution pick up around the Super Bowl (or other big sporting events), nor that "human traffickers" will descend on the city where it takes place. Tampa can rest easy (at least about that), and we can all marvel at the persistence and audacity of this myth.

The idea that violence against women picks up around the Super Bowl started gaining steam in the 1980s, though back then the specific claim was that domestic violence picked up during sporting events generally and that wife-beating was epidemic on Super Bowl day.

The domestic violence/Super Bowl claim was tied more to advocacy and legislation around protecting "battered women" by intensifying policing and punishment of their abusers (see this story I wrote on President Joe Biden and the Violence Against Women Act for more on that misguided and hyper-carceral bipartisan crusade) than it was to credible evidence. But it caught on nonetheless, capturing news headlines. And like its more current iteration, this myth refused to fade away for many years after being discovered as fake news. ("This myth was debunked three days after it first broke in the media in 1993, but seven years later it's still making the rounds," complained a fact-checker in 2000.)

At some point early this century, the claim shifted to sex trafficking (i.e., prostitution involving people under age 18 and/or fraud, coercion, or force).

The Super Bowl sex trafficking claim—and wild human trafficking claims more generally—is based in part on desires to stamp out all sex work by conflating consensual exchanges with violence and abuse.

"Alleged attempts to tackle #humantrafficking in response to mega sporting events are too often based on conflating #sexwork in general with the separate issue of trafficking within that sector, & using that to crack down on consensual sex workers trying to make a living," tweets U.K. writer Emily Kenway, author of the new book The Truth About Modern Slavery.

Super Bowl sex trafficking claims also seem to have gained steam as using terrorism to justify all manner of militarized policing and surveillance grew less politically popular in many factions. Saving children and vulnerable women from sexual monsters, real or imagined, never goes out of style. This means claims of an influx of Super Bowl sex traffickers has helped the feds put a positive spin on security theater around the event, while giving local cops an excuse to do vice stings and call them rescue missions.

Without fail, however, the "Super Bowl sex trafficking" stings almost exclusively lead to more misdemeanor prostitution arrests, ensnaring sex workers and their would-be customers. These stings tend to take place throughout Super Bowl weekend and the week or even full month or more before.

"The consequences of criminalization are devastating," said Alex Andrews, who runs the nonprofit Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP) Behind Bars. "The public has been led to believe that increased resources for law enforcement efforts will go to 'saving' victims of sexual exploitation, when in fact arrests only hurt those they claim to help."

SWOP Behind Bars is running a bail fund to assist sex workers arrested in these stings with getting out of prison after police have seized all their cash. (The group has also put out a very good guide to what should be done instead of our current approach: "On the Super Bowl, Safety and Solidarity.") Partnering with the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, Metro Inclusive Health, LIPS Tampa, and Big John's Bail Bonds, Andrews' group  "has set up a bail and legal assistance fund for sex workers detained by 'anti trafficking' stings around this year's Big Game."

"Already 71 people have been arrested," SWOP Behind Bars reports:

While many will be released on their own recognizance (ROR), repeat offenders can face up to one year in prison in the state of Florida. Sex worker advocates will show up for first appearance hearings to bond out those not granted ROR. Additional volunteers will meet people once they are released from jail to connect them with services.

Meanwhile, local news and mainstream outlets (including the Associated Press) keep churning out bullshit warnings about the Super Bowl being a magnet for sex traffickers, even though dozens of news outlets have challenged the idea (I rounded up some of them last year here), academic researchers have debunked it, and even government mouthpieces like the Polaris Project say it's inaccurate.

"Before 2018, 76% of U.S. print media helped propagate the myth of spiking numbers of sex trafficking during the Super Bowl," report researchers from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Minnesota.

While online ads for sex work may increase around large events, including the Super Bowl, it doesn't follow that sexual exploitation or even the number of discrete sex workers in an area has increased, they say. In fact, "the evidence showed a reduction in the availability of clients during some sporting events, such as the Olympics, which may shrink commercial sex markets."

"Our main finding was that available empirical evidence did not support a causal or correlative link between Super Bowls and sex trafficking," said study co-author Lauren Martin, an associate professor at Minnesota, in a 2019 news release.

It's fashionable these days to gawk at believers of QAnon conspiracy theories, which posit that Democrats, celebrities, and rich elites are trafficking children. But while QAnon puts a partisan and next-level whacko spin on sex trafficking panic, it's hardly just rooted in far-right fever dreams and unstable minds. For more than two decades now, we have seen the U.S. media and political establishment work in tandem with radical feminists, Christian morals groups, and federal crime, security, and intelligence agencies to spread the idea that sex trafficking, especially of children, is out of control and overlooked.

For 20 years, the left, right, and center have been pushing out-of-thin-air claims like that hundreds of thousands of American children are trafficked for sex each year, or that sex trafficking is a $9.5 billion business, or that the average age of entry into prostitution is 13 years old, or that "68,000 victims are trafficked right in front of our eyes, often on commercial flights."

QAnon is a product of mainstream culture and politics as much as anything else, and the persistence of Super Bowl sex trafficking myths provides a perfect illustration of this.


FREE MINDS 

A reminder that censorship backfires, even when it's for allegedly noble aims:


FREE MARKETS

"Performance prostitution" ban being considered in Casper, Wyoming. "A City Council vote in Casper, Wyoming was delayed [Tuesday], after a council member pointed out that a newly phrased legislative proposal criminalizing 'performance prostitution' would affect local online sex workers, particularly those with an OnlyFans account," reports Gustavo Turner at XBiz.

The proposal changed the ordinance to create the new crime of "performance prostitution," which it defined as "any touching, manipulation or fondling of the sex organs and/or aerola [sic] by one person upon themselves or by one person upon the person of another, whether by touch of the physical use of other items, for the purpose of sexually arousing or sexually gratifying the person who paid for and/or financed the sexual arousal or sexual gratification."

But at yesterday's meeting, Council Member Kyle Gamroth pointed out that the definition would criminalize online sex work in the city.

"I was just curious," Gamroth asked, "would that make somebody, like, if they were using an OnlyFans account or something to generate some revenue on the side, would that make that illegal."

"You know, if they were using that sort of phone application? Because I would be very hesitant to support something that, you know, criminalized someone using an OnlyFans account to generate some money on the side," he added.


QUICK HITS

  • The House will vote on whether to strip Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R–Ga.) of her committee assignments:

• Law professor Thom Lambert, who describes Sen. Josh Hawley (R–Mo.) as "a friend," takes aim at Hawley "lying" about GameStop.

• We are never getting out of Afghanistan.

• The "cop-free library movement" is calling on cities to reexamine the relationships between public libraries and police.

  • This is going nowhere good fast:

• On a Biden administration "reality czar."

      1. It’s fucking crazy how the ‘Sharpton Effect’ seems to prevent anyone from the left of ever facing any consequences for outrageous defaming accusations. The MSM just laps it up, amplifies it, then never looks back if it turns out to be totally fucking made up.

    2. Biden Administration Plans to Boost Number Of Foreign Voters By Next Election Season

      Poor Democrats. They see Republican controlled state legislatures ending all unconstitutional changes to election laws instituted by Democrats to steal election 2020.

      Pen and a phone by el presidente Biden. After Democrats lose Civil war 2.0, those rules will just be changed.

    3. Washington State Bill Would Ban Gas Cars In Ten Years, Other Blue States Following Suit

      I for one cant wait to drive my truck with extra gas tanks into these blue states.

      Lefties are insane. unreason covers for them.

      1. I’m guessing they are taking huge donations from car dealerships in Oregon and Idaho.

        They are also proposing a 26 cent gas tax or something too, highest in the nation.

    4. Biden Administration Opens Detention Centers For Wave Of Abandoned Children Amassing At Border

      HAHAHA. unreason just cannot win with their open border scheme. Republicans want to regulate immigrants and Democrats want to enslave immigrants.

    Wow.
    @simonschuster
    (same company that cancelled

    ’s book) gave a book deal to Hunter Biden. Hunter was accused by his dead brother’s wife (who he then dated) of being sexually inappropriate with his 14 year old niece and he’s the target of a criminal investigation. Vile.

    1. Hunter is also getting a high end art gallery showing. Democrats know how to hide their bribes.

      1. Hunter Biden isn’t a good example of Democrats knowing how to hide their bribes.

        1. You know who else was an aspiring artist?

    2. I expect that the same fuckers in the press who made Barron fair game will run cover for Hunter.

      1. Crackhead > minor

      2. Who’s Hunter?

  3. A reminder that censorship backfires, even when it’s for allegedly noble aims…

    Plus noble is in the eye of the beholder.

    1. It seemed to work well on Parler, the Federalists comment site, etc.

      1. Yeah, a lot of censorship going on, and it seems to be working out great for the censors. Of course, if you’re ignorant, and think only government censorship is real censorship, you might miss this point.

    Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg posted a document to Twitter containing tweets that she was told to post and actions she should take regarding the current protests in India. She quickly deleted the tweet.

    BREAKING UPDATE: Greta Thunberg is now facing a criminal conspiracy investigation in India over deleted farmers protest tweets (New York Post)

    1. Good for India. Hopefully they will also start looking into their domestic collaborators and publish a thorough account of how they construct these color revolutions, if for no other reason than posterity.

    2. I’m pretty sure the third sheet is basically what our resident fifty-centers get every morning.

    3. She recently celebrated her 18th birthday, which means that the California tech giants will have to find another excuse for deleting your critiques of her positions. (Posting critical comments of her had been banned across most platforms because she was underage).

      I suppose they’ll have to find another spokesmodel. Maybe get a middle schooler this time, so they can have a longer run.

    4. So, here is your annual reminder that there’s no truth to the idea that forced and underage prostitution pick up around the Super Bowl

      Sorry, Virginia, there are no 10-cent hookers!

      1. See, these superbowl prostitution theories have always made some sense to me. The area immediately surrounding a major sporting event is likely to see an increased desire for sex services. This specific event is significantly pricier to attend than most and thus limits attendees to mostly the rich and powerful. Such people tend to have more deviant sexual proclivities. Thus, the idea that there is more prostitution including that of minors or those forced into it is at least plausible. I don’t agree with having a major moral panic about it, but the basic idea is logical

    Interesting (&concerning) that #COVID19 updates have fallen to 2nd or 3rd tier stories on most network websites/ channels. Cases still spreading, people still dying, vax still lagging, & disparities still worsening, but no longer a “lead” story. Hope we aren’t becoming resigned..

    1. Didn’t you read the part where that panic is over? Joe got elected, you know.

      1. CNN dropped their COVID tracker from being always on screen.

        1. It’s hard to tell how many have been murdered by the Bidenvirus.

    2. Might be related to why Reason all of a sudden cares about the Afghanistan deal.

    3. Barely anybody heard Biden lost track of 20 million doses in 2 weeks.

      1. They blamed Emmanuel Goldstein Trump.

      2. SleepyJoe is managing the hell out of it.

        1. Joe “Charlie McCarthy” Biden.

          1. More like Zhou Bai-din.

  6. Meanwhile, libtards are pushing our boys to take estrogen and be ‘trans’.

    China promotes education drive to make boys more ‘manly’
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-55926248

    1. We are so getting our asses kicked in a war with a major repressive power, and no libtard will accept responsibility.

      Fuck you, Reason

      https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/1357158380998172674

      The U.S. military acknowledged it was unsure about how to address extremism in its ranks, and is planning military-wide stand-downs pausing regular activity at some point in the next 60 days to tackle the issue

      1. We are so getting our asses kicked in a war with a major repressive power

        That’s the point.

        1. Lets continue breaking the US military in pointless 20 year wars overseas.

      2. This was a huge issue this morning, and I’m hearing crickets.

        We are literally having an ideological purge of the military, 3rd world style. And nobody thinks it is worthy of comment?

        1. Amazing stuff.
          Makes understanding how the Nazi party took over quite simple.

    2. Chinese kids are learning STEM. Our kids are learning that they are racist and that Kap is a good QB.

      1. Great QB. Up there with Brady.

        1. Wayn Brady or jan brady? I would say kap is less skilled than wayn, but better than jan

          1. Didn’t Jan break Marsha’s nose with a nice, tight spiral?

            1. I think it was Greg that threw the ball

          2. .. Or Brady Quinn?

  7. Because I would be very hesitant to support something that, you know, criminalized someone using an OnlyFans account to generate some money on the side…

    I take it that OF income is taxed locally.

    1. What part of Casper, Wyoming did you not understand?
      Income Tax – Personal 0%
      Income Tax – Corporate 0%
      Property Tax 0 mills
      Lodging(includes Local & State sales tax) 9%

      So maybe real live hotel prostitution, but not a penny due for OF.

    2. Nah, but I bet he has an account.

  8. Momentarily – we haven’t come up with any BS why its racist to apply the law to us but not to you, but we will.

    Law used to prosecute Capitol riot, Black Lives Matter violence under fire as racist
    Defense lawyers say the ‘Civil Obedience Act’ was born of backlash against civil rights movement.
    https://www.politico.com/news/2021/02/02/capitol-riot-black-lives-matter-465156

    Over the past year, the federal government has been leaning on a Civil Rights-era law to charge people involved in violent protests at Black Lives Matter rallies and then at the U.S. Capitol this past month.

    But defense attorneys for those charged for their involvement in the racial justice protests now say the law is unconstitutional and rooted in racism. And their arguments are strong enough to complicate — at least momentarily — those prosecutions and potentially the ones related to the Capitol riots.

    1. Investigators struggle to build murder case in death of US Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick
      https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/02/politics/brian-sicknick-charges/index.html

      …To date, little information has been shared publicly about the circumstances of the death of the 13-year veteran of the police force, including any findings from an autopsy that was conducted by DC’s medical examiner.

      …In Sicknick’s case, it’s still not known publicly what caused him to collapse the night of the insurrection. Findings from a medical examiner’s review have not yet been released and authorities have not made any announcements about that ongoing process.

      According to one law enforcement official, medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.

      …The case could also be complicated if Sicknick had a preexisting medical condition. It could not be learned if he did.

      1. Remember this?

        No convictions in Waco biker shootout that left 9 dead, 20 injured
        https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/04/03/waco-biker-shootout-shooting-twin-peaks-cases-charges-dropped-convictions/3352073002/

        The deadliest biker shootout in U.S. history left nine dead and at least 20 injured almost four years ago in Waco, Texas. And now all charges tied to the shooting will be dropped.

        Pursuing charges in the violent clash between rival biker gangs “would only result in further waste of time, effort and resources,” McLennan County District Attorney Barry Johnson said Tuesday in a statement.

        About 200 bikers had gathered outside a Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17, 2015, before the fracas broke out. Most were members of the Banditos or Cossack motorcycle gangs, Johnson said. After police intervened, 177 bikers were arrested with 155 of those charged with criminal activity.

        All but 24 of those cases were eventually dropped before Tuesday.

        More than 100 of those bikers would go on to file civil rights lawsuits, the Waco Tribune reported, and only one case — of Bandidos leader Jacob Carrizal — was ever prosecuted in court. It ended in a mistrial.

        According to KWTX-TV, McLennan County noted that costs tied to the Twin Peaks incident over the years totaled $1,317,835.

        All that led Johnson to decide to “end this nightmare,” per the Tribune.

        1. Oops! Sorry! My finger accidentally pressed the “flag” button.

          This is a truly horrific story. My own area is infested with motorcycle gangs along with the regular street gangs. If all local DAs did what McLennan County DAs did, any community with a gang problem would turn into a little Lebanon!

          Has someone proposed defunding or “re-imaginng” DAs? It sure sounds like it.

          1. Besides Soros?

          2. Just about all of the shots came from the feds and not the bikers, that’s why they stopped investigating

            1. ^ This. Which is also why the story died all of a sudden when that little tidbit came out.

          3. they dropped the case because the cops did most of the shooting

  9. “Deadly viral spread to COs and communities!”

    Turns out the prison unions, caught in a dilemma between keeping the incarceration rates up and protecting their members’ health, often chose the former. Prison worker populations are more expendable than prison inmate population norms?

  10. The House will vote on whether to strip Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R–Ga.) of her committee assignments…

    You can corrupt, you can be self-serving and you can be crazy in the House, but you can’t be Trump crazy.

    1. The left’s dream GOP is a grandstanding bunch of mush that never accomplishes anything or directly addresses the concerns of the people who elect them.

      1. “Consider it done” -Republicans

    2. All the residents of her district are definitely feeling the unity.

  11. Wyoming may be the inbred sister fucking capital of the country.

    Gaetz was there ruling up the Trump cultists. That’s especially dangerous because people in Wyoming are dumber than Floridians(I know that’s hard to believe).

    Fuck the Mormon defending Trump Nazis.

    Kill every last Mormon on earth. Anyone dumb enough to believe the goddamn horseshit they believe and who try to force it on everyone deserves to die.

    1. I’ve noticed all the Biden defenders have really started using Trump Cultist even more lately. Are you guys finally realizing Biden isn’t good?

      1. Where did I defend Biden?

        Arizona is straight up a white trash hellhole.

        No wonder you live there and are proud of it you dumb redneck!

        What’s it liked to be ridiculed and laughed at by people smarter and better than you? You probably don’t mind because you’re an ignorant white trash hillbilly who’s too stupid to realize you’re being mocked.

        1. Arizona is straight up a white trash hellhole.

          Especially Flagstaff, Tempe, and Tucson.

        2. What’s it liked to be ridiculed and laughed at by people smarter and better than you? You probably don’t mind because you’re an ignorant white trash hillbilly who’s too stupid to realize you’re being mocked.

          You’ve done this copypasta already, you hicklib faggot.

          1. It applies to most people on here. Especially you.

            White trash Montanan bigot

            1. GRIDS-riddled Portland faggot.

              1. Rather live in hip, desirerable Portland than the rural shithole you live in.

                I know since you’re a racist bigot surrounded by other racist bigots in your rural asshole home that you think bigotry is normal. Most people don’t like racists or homophobes, so most people wouldn’t like you. They’d hold your uneducated, backwards, bigoted ass in contempt.

                1. Rather live in hip, desirerable disease-riddled Portland than the rural shithole you live in.

                  Fixed that for you.

      2. You elected Mormon Jeff Flake for christ fucking sake you white trash creatin.

        1. I didn’t. And he wasn’t re-elected. You should update your ignorance occasionally.

          1. I guess the past doesn’t exist

            1. Neither does your T-cell count.

              1. Flagged. Reason doesn’t moderate comments, but hopefully they ban your hateful bigoted ass.

                It shows what kind of people most reason commenters are that they don’t call out your bigotry. It’s because most are far right, backwards, sister fucking bigots like you.

                The majority of the country despises hateful bigots like you.

                1. …hopefully they ban your hateful bigoted ass.

                  If they ban anyone for being a hatful bigot…. it would have to be you.

              2. LAMO

        1. Not to be ageist or anything. But when Disney adds Joe Biden to the Hall of Presidents, they won’t need to build an animatronic version, they can just use the animatronic version the Democrats are using now.

          Unless the Hall of Presidents is scrapped before then for being racist, or to prevent Trump from being added.

          1. I didn’t defend, endorse, or mention Biden.

            You people have BDS. Biden derangement syndrome. Any criticism of him or democrats is just because of your BDS.

    2. “Trump Nazis”

      One needs to distinguish Orangehitler’s acolytes from the actual fascists that now compose the gentry elite and the Democratic Party.

      1. Good one you beady eyed flapping head dumb ass!

        1. Lol, Sqrlsy

          1. You got me! Im squirrelsy

            1. Fuck off, WK!

              1. Please keep assuming I’m Sqrlsy or WK or whoever you backwards Mormon. It’ll make it easier to kill your evil Mormon ass(it’s already easy because you’re fucking stupid. You believe a discredited book is gospel).

                You’re a cancer who needs to be eliminated Chuck. You and your church are trying to force your stupid beliefs on everyone. If you want to believe in magic underwear and golden plates no one saw whatever. But you and your church are trying to ram your bullshit beliefs down others throats.

                Since you and your church refuse to stop the only way is to exterminate you Mormons. Anyone dumb enough to belong to your stupid church shouldn’t breed, but your cult encourages as much breeding as possible. It’s so you assholes can outnumber everyone and take over.

                Also you worship a con artist pervert. Your beliefs are fucking absurd.

                Please tell me if you and your fat cunt wife visit!

                1. Shorter version:

                  blah blah blah Mormons bad blah blah blah I’m a bigoted ass blah blah blah people should die blah blah blah

    3. Aw, shit! Not again…

    4. Wyoming may be the inbred sister fucking capital of the country.

      Then I’m assuming you and your extended family recently moved there. If not, you’re probably lying, which is normal for lying bigots like yourself.

  12. https://thefederalist.com/2021/02/03/chuck-schumer-used-violent-rhetoric-to-sic-a-mob-on-two-supreme-court-justices/#.YBqdXsLJ5oo.twitter

    One example Paul left out of his excellent speech is even more relevant to next week’s impeachment. Less than one year ago, Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York led a mob on the steps of the Supreme Court while a case was being heard and tried to thwart the natural deliberation of justices by violently threatening two of them to rule in favor of his and other Democrats’ preferred outcome.

    “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions,” Schumer threatened the two most recently confirmed justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

    The threat was so alarming that even leftist activists such as Laurence Tribe condemned it. Schumer received a rare, same-day rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, who said, “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”

    Then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell condemned Schumer’s remarks as “astonishingly reckless and completely irresponsible.” However, Sen. Josh Hawley’s efforts to censure Schumer for his violent threats were scuttled.

    The Washington Post write-up of Schumer’s threats focused instead on Republican opposition to them. “GOP seizes on Schumer’s remarks” read the headline.

    Schumer’s threats came just 17 months after the Supreme Court had been besieged and attacked by abortion activists upset at Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Like the Jan. 6 event, the October 2018 siege also involved Vice President Mike Pence being condemned by protesters. As he walked down the steps of the U.S. Senate following the vote to confirm Kavanaugh, the crowd greeted him with chants of “shame!”

    Across the street, hordes of protesters broke through a police barricade and attempted to beat down the 13-ton bronze doors of the court. Protesters included a topless woman with a Hitler mustache and another woman who scaled the Contemplation of Justice statue in front of the court and sat in her lap to the cheers of other protesters.

    Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan, who attended Kavanaugh’s immediate swearing in, were hit with water bottles and tomatoes when their car left the court afterward. Some 164 people were arrested in that protest.

    1. “You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price” is just a metaphor (or two).
      “Protest peacefully and patriotically” is code for “start a violent insurrection”.

  15. The Narrativr keeps having bad days….

    Investigators are struggling to build a federal murder case regarding fallen US Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death as he defended the Capitol during last month’s insurrection.

    Authorities have reviewed video and photographs that show Sicknick engaging with rioters amid the siege but have yet to identify a moment in which he suffered his fatal injuries, law enforcement officials familiar with the matter said.

    According to one law enforcement official, medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.

    WK and Stolen Valor will be hardest hit.

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/megan-fox/2021/02/03/investigators-struggle-to-build-murder-case-in-death-of-officer-brian-sicknick-who-died-after-capitol-riot-n1422850

    It is almost like we knew he died of a stroke that the doctors refused to link to the riots. Yet the media ran woth assumptions as truth. Based merely on temporal nearness of the death.

    1. Don’t be a damn fool. He died of COVID-19.
      Because of Trump

    2. Good luck trying to establish a cause of death now that Sicknick has been cremated.

      Hmmmm…..sounds like a good jumping-off point for a conspiracy theory, doesn’t it? Did Sicknick ever express any wishes to be cremated upon his death? Who made the decision to cremate him? Sounds rather convenient to me that he was cremated before any investigation into the exact cause of death could be conducted. Or perhaps I should say “the body purported to be Sicknick” was cremated. Did the person who ordered his cremation have a thick Russian accent by chance? Was Sicknick in fact cremated? Is Sicknick really even dead? We’ll never know now!

      1. Eh, if they’ve already done the autopsy, it’s kind of a moot point.

        The real issue is whether they pressure the coroners to change their findings post facto, like they did with George Floyd and his drug overdose.

        1. They haven’t released results, and no defendant can challenge the results w/o a body.

          1. Normally, sure, but this is Clown World, not the US.

          2. George Floyd didn’t OD ya braindead bigot.

            Its not your fault. You’re a square inbred racist bigot who lives in a rural shithole.

            1. The only thing that everyone agrees on about Floyd is that he was suffering from an overdose you lying piece of shit.

              1. I know you squares don’t know, but being high isn’t the same as overdosing.

                You realize all the drunks and junkies you despise are smarter than you Chuck?

                Also what does it say about you that you’re on the same side as hateful bigot RedRocks White Privilege?

                I’m not suprised. After all you belong to a racist, bigoted church.

            2. The initial autopsy said otherwise, you hicklib faggot.

              1. The official cause of death says otherwise you uneducated, backwards bigot.

                Are you sure you aren’t Mormon? You have the lack of intelligence, morals, and tolerance of a Mormon.

                It makes me feel good that a white trash bigot hates me and responds to all my posts. I’m doing something right if I’m getting under your hate filled skin.

                You’re a racist white trash bigot red rocks. You’re just above pedophiles on the list of people despised by society.

      3. was there anyone killed at all and were we just given a pile of ashes? enquiring minds want to know

        1. There’s 3 dead people from that day who I’ve heard nothing about. 2 dead are named. 1 was a protester/rioter shot by police and the other is this cop with no listed cause of death. Who are the other 3 and how did they die? Seems odd to skip that information from a deadly event that’s been so hyped

    3. For some reason, that guy that died in the Reichstag fire that the Nazis turned into a hero comes to mind.

    4. This is a very big deal. Every motherfucker who has called the riots ‘deadly’ is a liar. The only people who died were actual protestors who suffered medical crises or were shot by police.

      1. Cram it traitor!

        You will only speak when spoken to you Mormon traitor!

  16. We are never getting out of Afghanistan.

    We just got rid of the only one who had a chance of leaving, perhaps announced via Twitter and on a whim.

    1. Just wait until Joe finds out they don’t have transgender bathrooms in Afghanistan – we’ll be out of there in 5 minutes. It’s unconscionable to ask the good men, women, and otherkins of the US military to serve under such barbaric conditions.

      1. No, it will be the other way around. The lack of transgender bathrooms in Afghanistan is why we need to be there, fighting for freedom and hormones for the good people of Afghanistan.

    1. Yeah, “Not all” is not an argument… it is a diversion tactic, wherever it is used.

    2. But the ones who do sports are, comparatively.

      1. I was decent at sports in school. However, I beat basically every women’s track record. In men’s track I did ok regionally and got obliterated in state competition. There’s a huge difference. An above average male athlete is likely elite in female sports

    With this president’s mental state they’re also going to need an irony czar.

  21. Remember when libertarians were actually libertarians….


    Suppose that Mr. A tells Mr. B: “Go out and shoot the mayor.” Suppose, then, that Mr. B, pondering this suggestion, decides it’s a darn good idea and goes out and shoots the mayor. Now obviously B is responsible for the shooting. But in what sense can A be held responsible? A did not do the shooting, and didn’t take part, we will assume, in any of the planning or executing of the act itself. The very fact that he made that suggestion cannot really mean that A should be held responsible. For does not B have free will? Is he not a free agent? And if he is, then B and B alone is responsible for the shooting.
    ….
    [I]f the will is free, then no man is determined by another; then just because somebody shouts “burn, baby, burn,” no one hearing this advice is thereby compelled or determined to go and carry the suggestion out. Anybody who does carry out the advice is responsible for his own actions, and solely responsible.

    Above is from Rothbard.

    https://mises.org/wire/incitement-not-real-crime

    1. So Manson should have never gone to prison. Got it.

      1. Manson did the planning.

        1. According to JesseAz since he didn’t literally get his hands dirty then he’s not responsible at all.

          It amazes me how far Trump supporters will go to defend their guy.

          JesseAz is now saying Charles Manson didn’t deserve to go to prison just so he can absolve Trump of responsibility of the storming of the Capital building.

          Amazing.

          1. According to me? That was Rothbard. Did you even bother reading it? LOL.

            Do you not understand how nothing in that quote says planning is not relevant. It is literally talking solely about incitement.

            JesseAz is now saying Charles Manson didn’t deserve to go to prison

            Citation?

            You’re just proving you are too dense to understand. Hint: Read the article instead of looking stupid and desperate.

            The only amazing part is you proving your inability either read or actually understand the issue.

            1. You didn’t condemn Manson when you quoted Rothbard which is a tacit admission that you never wanted him to go to prison. It’s all right there. You didn’t say it, which means you own it.

              1. Seriously?


                A did not do the shooting, and didn’t take part, we will assume, in any of the planning or executing of the act itself.

                Rothbard included that bit for a reason, you know. As in planning and/or executing the act itself are not merely a suggestion, but material aid to the act itself (or the act itself).

                Is your contention that Manson simply asked a rhetorical question of his followers and they acted? That appears to be a unique interpretation of his involvement.

                1. No, I’m not serious. I’m just pointing out the absurdity of telling people what they think based upon what they didn’t say, and then arguing with them as if you know what they think better than they do, which is what JesseAz does every day.

                  1. You still are too dumb to understand basic arguments.

                    You went into BLM threads and defended them against the riots. You went into threads about government and only attacked Trump and basically remained quite or at times defended Biden as not as bad.

                    That is not the same as what you are idiotically doing here. This thread wasn’t about Manson you idiot. It was about a Rothbard quote that you somehow think applies to Manson and you tried to ignore it to attack Trump.

                    You are quite an ignorant person.

                  2. So broken.

              2. First… Manson wasn’t charged with conspiracy idiot, he was charged with 1st degree murder and conspiracy.

                Second… I condemn manson and have never made excuses with him you idiot, unlike you did with BLM.

                Third… I’m not dumb enough to think Manson was only charged with incitement like you are.

                1. charged with incitement* for the initial part.

        2. Shhhh. Let him figure it out.

      2. LOL. That was your takeaway from that. How precious. Let me guess… you think Rothbard is a Trump cultist?

        1. Being that he died 25 years ago that’s a really stupid question.

          And yeah, my takeaway is that you would have let Manson go free if it meant Trump not being impeached.

          1. Yes, your takeaway is stupid. What I posted was literally from Rothbard, so the fact that you think it implies what you state it implies is highly precious.

            Your rantings are that of a broken man, lol.

            1. I’m just applying the same logic you use to say I voted for Biden. Heck, according to these tacit admissions of yours I’m starting to think you wrote Charles Manson on the ballot. Which is really dumb being that they guy’s dead.

              1. No, you aren’t. And you’re too dumb to understand it. This is you clearly proving you can’t engage in basic argumentation. You are clearly clearly broken.

              2. Your not applying any logic, you’re acting like a 13 year old girl having a tantrum on social media.

          2. By the way, did you even notice that I didn’t even say the name Trump in my post, but that is immediately what your takeaway was? You’re broken. So sadly broken. Hilarious though.

            1. You didn’t say it so that’s a tacit admission.

              Own it.

              1. LOL. take another 2 day break like you had to the last time you got piled on. You’re basically new jeff. But worse.

                1. I’m starting to wonder if something traumatic has happened recently to poor sarc.

          3. my takeaway is that you would have let Manson go free if it meant Trump not being impeached.

            Goddamn, not even people that called Obama a secret Muslim are as neurotic about him as you are about Trump.

  22. We regret to inform libs that Kyle Rittenhouse hasn’t disappeared
    https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2021/02/04/we-regret-to-inform-libs-that-kyle-rittenhouse-hasnt-disappeared/

    On the Kyle Rittenhouse address dispute: Kenosha detectives appear not to have known that he was no longer living at the Antioch, Ill., address he provided the court. The Antioch police put out a press release in Nov. saying that he had moved out of town:

    1. Yeah, the breathless headline didn’t match the reality. Looks like his defense attorneys asked the DA not to make his address known out of retaliation concerns. The DA’s office went ahead and did it anyway, so now they’ve got him in a safehouse and are trying to keep the assistant DA, Thomas Binger, from revealing that location, too.

      1. Could be sure the assistant DA if he reveals his location again. The fact he is in a safe house, should mean that the DA can’t claim he didn’t know he was taking actions to endanger someone’s life.

        1. He argued in court that there is no “specific threat”, therefore the address should be a matter of public record.

          I suppose by “specific threat” he means “Tom Stafford who lives 1.2 miles away has openly stated that he intends to harm Rittenhouse and has purchased a gun to that effect and was seen casing the Rittenhouse apartment on 3 occasions.” Although that in and of itself might not be enough.

  23. “In a Year of Wild Conspiracy Theories, Super Bowl Sex Trafficking Is a Classic”

    Yet we will still use it to generate clicks, rather than ignore it as the fantasy it is?

    1. I dunno. Sometimes it pays to repeat the debunking.
      I still hear that bullshit that wife-beating peaks on SB Sunday regardless of the number of times it’s been shown to be BS.

      1. Debunk while we still can. Once the illegitimate president Biden has his Minitru in place, Super Bowl sex trafficking will be the Truth and any facts to the contrary will be Wild Conspiracy Theories that are a Danger to Our Democracy spread by Seditious Insurrectionists.

        1. Oh, and RUSSIA!. How could I forget about RUSSIA!.

    2. After all the blatant lies from this bitch over the past year, I’m gonna assume their really is a spike in sex trafficking Super Bowl week.

    […]
    “The California Grocers Association on Wednesday filed suit against Oakland a day after Oakland city councilmembers voted to require large grocery stores to raise workers’ pay by $5 per hour. The ordinance was passed as an emergency ordinance, so it takes effect immediately.
    The grocers association filed a similar lawsuit against the city of Montebello in Los Angeles, which voted for a $4 an hour increase for grocery workers.
    “In addition to clearly violating federal and state law, the extra pay mandates will harm customers and workers,” said CEO Ron Fong in a prepared statement. “A $5/hour mandate amounts to a 28 percent average increase in labor costs for grocery stores. That is too big a cost increase for any grocery retailer to absorb without consequence. Options are few. Either pass the costs to customers, cut employee or store hours, or close. Already two stores closed in Long Beach after the city enacted a $4/hour pay increase. Nearly 200 workers lost those jobs.”…”

    Maybe this time the voters will understand that buying votes costs *them* money.

    1. No they won’t. The dead don’t pay taxes.

    2. How long before corporations realize they must comply with those they backed?
      Cough up the coin, so the fascists can take more and more power, and just hope you have “donated” enough to get the occasional exemption.

      Either that or grow a pair, and just shut down until the emergency is revoked. It won’t take long when the food runs out. Of course there might be a mostly peaceful looting rampage, but at least they don’t have to put the looters on the payroll.

  26. So…..touching your own nipples on zoom is now prostitution?

    1. There go my weekend plans.

    —-Bloomberg, February 2, 2021

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-02-03/apple-to-invest-3-6-billion-in-kia-to-make-evs-donga-says

    Is this what progressives are referring to when they say libertarian capitalists are “doing nothing” about climate change? If climate change has or needs a solution, this is what it looks like–entrepreneurs making investments in the hope of selling consumers products at a premium to make a fat profit.

    In related news, Amazon announced that the first of the 100,000 delivery trucks they ordered from electric start up Rivian (backed by Ford) is already out delivering packages. As part of that investment, they’re rigging their new distribution centers up with charging stations–contributing to the infrastructure necessary to distribute that electricity in the markets they serve, as well as doing some of the heavy lifting on the early adoption of charging technology–which can only benefit from scale.

    GM has announced that they don’t expect to be making anything but electric vehicles 15 years from now, and this transformation of the entire auto industry, of course, has been driven by the emergence of Tesla, another investment driven ball of anti-climate change, entrepreneurial goodness.

    Given the incredible demand for Tesla’s cars and the years-long, open questions about whether they would be able to satisfy their huge list of backorders, the best argument against giving Tesla government subsidies in the past is probably that they were entirely unnecessary. Consumers have been falling all over each other to pay a premium for a Tesla for years, and the last thing the government needed to do with our tax money was stimulate demand for Teslas.

    The Democrats don’t care what the American people think of the Green New Deal. In fact, plenty of them support the Green New Deal specifically because the American people oppose it. After all , the whole point of progressivism is to use the coercive power of government to force us to make sacrifices for the common good (as they see it). Because we don’t want to sacrifice our standard of living on the altar of climate change by way of the Green New Deal means they need to pass it in the progressive mind.

    But when we talk to our friends, coworkers, and family about why the government shouldn’t inflict the Green New Deal on us–in preparation for the fight to overturn the Green New Deal in 2022 and 2024, try to keep in mind that we need don’t just need the support of people who don’t believe climate change is real in order to defeat the progressives. We also need the support of average people who think climate change is a real problem–and they should oppose the Green New Deal, too.

    After all, if libertarians and conservatives letting capitalism, markets, entrepreneurs, and consumers solve our problems for us is “doing nothing”, then the entrepreneur and consumer led transformation of the auto industry is “doing nothing”. The choice between the Green New Deal and “doing nothing” is a false dichotomy.

    1. The progressives seem to believe, with unwavering devotion, that electric cars will ween the country off fossil fuels because electricity is generated by …… LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!!

      1. The point that Joe Biden’s Green New Deal will eliminate natural gas from electricity production is an important one.

        Natural gas burns 40% cleaner than coal, but it has displaced coal because it’s cheaper and less labor intensive to get out of the ground and transport. To the extent that renewables produce electricity that is more expensive than existing natural gas, they will undermine the demand for electric cars–lower than that demand would be if electricity were less expensive.

        The market penetration of electric vehicles is only as deep as the consumers who can afford to pay for the electricity. By raising the price of electricity, Joe Biden is limiting the market penetration of electric vehicles–which is going against the fight against climate change. If the Biden administration were really primarily concerned with the environment, they’d leave natural gas alone over the next 15 years. The Green New Deal is mostly just a cover for socialism, cronyism, and spending.

        1. Quit lying.

          1. Die.

          2. You’re a fucking idiot.

          3. How did Ken lie, Buttplug?

            An explanation from a chronic liar like you should be interesting.

            1. It won’t be interesting. He’s an idiot.

            2. Just for the record though:

              “Biden will make a $2 trillion accelerated investment, with a plan to deploy those resources over his first term, setting us on an irreversible course to meet the ambitious climate progress that science demands.

              Biden will make far-reaching investments in:

              . . . .

              Power Sector: Move ambitiously to generate clean, American-made electricity to achieve a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035. This will enable us to meet the existential threat of climate change while creating millions of jobs with a choice to join a union.

          4. You first, hicklib.

        2. Natural gas also account for approximately 40% of all electricity generated, whereas all of the renewable “green” energy sources account for about 15%. Without natural gas, there is no way to make up the difference without relying on other “dirty” fuels.

          “The Green New Deal is mostly just a cover for socialism, cronyism, and spending.”

          If its intended to function as cover, it has failed. AOC’s entire framework reads like Karl Marx and has dick to do with energy production.

          1. Well, two points.

            1) That’s a justification for spending trillions of taxpayer money, which isn’t a bad thing to the Democrats. And they have all but total control of Congress and the White House.

            2) If the Drug War taught us anything, it’s that there isn’t a government program so expensive, so destructive, so futile, and so meager in its achievements that the government won’t tenaciously pursue it for decades at a time squandering trillions in resources and devastating millions of people’s lives.

            Conclusion: Because it’s stupid, impossible, expensive and destructive doesn’t mean the progressives won’t pursue it to the bitter end–especially if pursuing it means they can lavish trillions on their cronies. Don’t you know there’s a crisis going on?

          2. Nuclear, General. Don’t forget nuclear.

            1. Nukuler

    2. Without natural gas and nuclear fueled power plants, what is going to generate enough electricity to meet the demands of all these electric vehicles, and the other electricity requirements of the American economy?

      1. Well, that’s going to take a lot of taxpayer money.

        1. He’s pushing a few trillion dollars in spending. Most everyone else is saying it will cost $10 trillion.

        2. I suppose a dollar bill fired power plant *is* an option…

          1. Just give each plant their own money printer!

      2. Fuck you, racist.

        Eat bugs. Use candles. Hover over a flaming trash can.

        We are in this together.

    3. Good progress, but distributing all that electric power isn’t very efficient, or necessarily clean either. Should go to hydrogen powered vehicles.

      1. Distributing electricity isn’t efficient, but it’s cost effective because the power lines are already built. Finance is a big part of this–and part of the reason why entrepreneurs are so much better at solving these problems than government. If there’s a way to do it inexpensively, they’ll find it–to maximize their profits.

  34. So….. what are we doing to Russia for imposing Trump on us in 2016 anyway?

  35. U.S. budget deficit hits all-time high of $3.1 trillion
    Economy Oct 16, 2020 2:23 PM EST
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal budget deficit hit an all-time high of $3.1 trillion in the 2020 budget year, more than double the previous record, as the coronavirus pandemic shrank revenues and sent spending soaring.

    The Trump administration reported Friday that the deficit for the budget year that ended on Sept. 30 was three times the size of last year’s deficit of $984 billion. It was also $2 trillion higher than the administration had estimated in February, before the pandemic hit.

    1. STOP WITH THE WHATABOUTISM!

    2. Explain to us how Pelosi sending vetoproof spending bills to Trump is his fault, and why you’re ignoring the fact that the Senate started blocking them.

      That rests on the House Democrats necks.

      1. The idiots really don’t think Congress even exists in the budget process. Despite being told in every thread.

        1. They’re told that they need to post it, so they post it.

    3. Huh, wonder what happened in 2020 that would have caused a massive spike in government spending. Must have been magic!

  36. They are going to regulate to ‘protect’ us from our stupidity, after calling the people who went after the hedge funds “white supremacists”

    Even the most novice user on Robinhood can instantly place wagers on some of the most complex U.S. markets available to the investing public

    1. Stocks are for aristocrats, not for peasants like you.

  37. Super Bowl?

    Is anyone playing this year?

    1. One Communist China loving Political Action Committee against another one.
      Or is that basketball? Whatever.

      1. Hey, Tom Brady is not a commie.

    “This is the latest manipulative take on the right. They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too,” she wrote.

    1. https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1357197628677701632?s=19

      BREAKING: AOC just emailed her followers to mass-report everyone who tweeted #AlexandriaOcasioSmollet today so Twitter and Facebook will take down any posts criticizing or fact-checking her

    2. Lol, she claims she was literally almost murdered by unarmed selfie-taking protesters, and she wasn’t even in the building.

      Come-on fifty-centers. Tell us again about “B-b-b-b-but Marjorie Taylor Greene”.

    3. “Bombs Trump supporters planted” is stealing three bases.

      1. So it’ll be fact checked then, right?

        1. OF COURSE! Can’t have any misinformation floating around on the internet.

      2. Canada has declared the Proud Boys a terrorist organization, due to their plotting of the violent insurrection in DC.

    1. But was it mostly peaceful?

      1. The video is pretty hilarious.
        Someone did a mock up with the Mr. Robot opening credits scroll over it that works really well too

    2. We don’t really know if it was a coup, or an insurrection, or what not.
      Were the rebels/protesters asking for the last election to be audited?

  39. Human “thought” process:
    1. Imagine a thing, good or bad, based on nothing more than feelings.
    2. Respond to the urge to Do Something, and assume a mandate.
    3. Demand that others recognize your cause and follow your directions.
    4. Repeat.

    1. I ain’t responding to that. You can’t order me around….

    “Let em die”

    *15 min later in same thread*

    “We’re all in this together ????”

    1. You do know that this comment section bears the same relationship to reality that an airport bears to the US Constitution, right?

    2. You can see the exact same pivot occur with Tony and the other resident lefties here. They instantly change direction like a flock of birds.

      1. As troll always do; once they hit a wall of reality, the pivot like a mother fucker, usually prefaced with “well what about….?”

    3. I’m assuming by his handle he is from Maryland, being critical of Florida.

      Interestingly, Maryland and Florida have very similar deaths per 100k, both coming in the middle of the pack for states. Yet Florida has a much older population and Maryland’s major population center is offloaded to the District of Columbia, so those deaths don’t count on Maryland’s total.

      soooooo….. Maybe his outrage and sense of superiority is a little bit unfounded?

    We will only achieve tolerance and unity once white people accept that they are evil, repugnant, worthless trash whose very existence is a vomit stain on the fabric of society.

    1. Poe’s Law. :-\

    2. Eh. She stole that from NYT reporter Sarah Jeong. Already not a parody.

  42. “You know, if they were using that sort of phone application? Because I would be very hesitant to support something that, you know, criminalized someone using an OnlyFans account to generate some money on the side,” he added.

    Curious to know what his browser history looks like.

    1. Is he a dude?

      I think we have our answer…

  43. “For 20 years, the left, right, and center have been pushing out-of-thin-air claims like that hundreds of thousands of American children are trafficked for sex each year, or that sex trafficking is a $9.5 billion business, or that the average age of entry into prostitution is 13 years old, or that “68,000 victims are trafficked right in front of our eyes, often on commercial flights.”

    Well I’m sorry you don’t care, ENB.

  44. There is an octopus in Cincinnati named Fiona who can predict the super bowl. This year It’s 49rs.
