    But is it Art?




    A great little Hummel. Here we see Robert Novak singing the praises of George W. Bush while Ann Coulter stands nearby with a megaphone, calling for a New McCarthyism. In the middle you see a feckless Liberal university professor being subdued by David Horowitz who is standing behind him and twisting his arm, while he forces the intellectual to wear a Dunce Cap and wear a humiliating sign.

    Bonus points for anyone who can actually tell from whence this figurine emerges.

    That's either Chinese or Korean.

    Looks to me to be the treatment one recieves in a communist country after speaking the truth right before a bullet is put in the back of his skull.

    Or maybe is a depiction of how the socialist communities like to blame the capitalists for all the world's problems by attempting to mock and overwhelm the capitalist with lies.

    You're on the right track. It's a pro-Cultural Revolution/ Gang of Four propaganda piece:

    What's the upshot? Under Mao, the movement marginalized a major portion of the political power structure (in their case, the Communist Party- just not the right part of the Communist Party), and beginning in 1966, it was offical policy to purge intellectuals. This led to the consolidation of power for Chairman Mao and The Gang of Four.

    WHen I was a child, my momma pointed out to me that as any totalitarian regime makes it's power play for consolidation, they always purge intellectuals, sometimes more violently than others. It also doesn't matter if the power grab is by the Right or the Left. Think of the following revolutions and movements: The French Revolution under Robespierre, The Communist Revolution, European Fascism leading to WWII, Khmer Rouge, S. African Apartheid, etc. All purged intellectuals during the consolidation of power and afterward. Always on a pretext, and sometimes with ridicule, sometimes with prison and sometimes with murder.

    Why? because they dissent and are dangerous to the regime.

    What else is common to these movements? Terror and eventually withering economic and cultural stagnation.

    So when there is a movement to limit free (dissident) speech by professors on college campuses, even odious speech, I get very alarmed.

    Again, we (Americans) became the most powerful nation in the world by nurturing our academic dissedents, and preventing consolidation of power. This is not a coincidence.

    This is way deeper than Right vs. Left. This is about power. When you guys spout the neocon anti-academic propaganda and there are movements to officially purge through ridicule or otherwise the dissident intellectuals, you have more in common with Chairman and Madame Mao than you think.

    At least now you know where this leads. Don't expect a Thousand-Year Reich or a Worker's Paradise. Expect terror, at least for some, and economic stagnation.

    Whoa, that's a very interesting point. You sure are dedicated to this spreading the word stuff. But man, you will have a hard time getting bodybuilders to understand. Remember that you're dealing with real men here :

    Alright Info, you come up with some interesting, sometimes obscure, stuff, even if I don't always agree with your observations. Just curious, besides politics what else are you interested in?

    If you recall info I agreed with you on this one. While I think the majority of college campuses are bastions of liberal echo chambers, I don't think the government should be stepping in to regulate it.

    Tell me about it. I remember (before I dropped out of college, of course) when I had to take a multicultural course to satisfy a requirement. I like learning about other cultures but this class was torturous. The majority of it was liberal propaganda. I felt like the longer I spent in that class, the more pussified I became.
    The teacher lost me as soon as she tried to prove that there was no Truth. "Well," I asked. "Is that true?" LOL
    I live in Seattle by the way so it's pretty liberal. One of my good friends is an amped up, freaked out feminist who got mad at me for singing "What's new *****cat? whooooaaaa ohhhhh ohhhhh." Apparently she doesn't like the word *****. I'll stop now

    Interests? Besides porn, you mean?

    Raising my kids, Tree farming (the only farming you can do in your spare time), travel.

    No, I'm not a serious bodybuilder, but I do work out and I found this site looking into certain parmacological actions and side-effects. Some time back I had a side effect from prohormone/6-oxo combo that might affect 1% of individuals taking such things.

    I'm bigger into the nootropics (smart drugs) than the body-building neutraceuticals, but it turns out there's considerable overlap (brain and muscle are the two major energy users of the body). If I get into political discussions with the smart-drug set, they tend to agree with me, and that gets dull.

    Feminists are really some F'D up crazy people. There is one who believes consensual sex between a man and a woman is rape.lol

    I had the same experience. Pretty much anything that's not a hard science class is laced with propaganda.

    LMAO I bet she took that well.......

    You could've tried... I was in the in the best shape out of everybody. Funny thing, I manipulated my way through high school without ever taking PE. I managed to get a letter in track and field without ever being on the team...
