So, a self-hating Jew is funding a battalion of Ukranian neo-Nazi trash?

What could go wrong?

Oh its even better than that.  Ihor Kolomoyskyi is a well known sponsor of Jewish causes, including the United Jewish Community of Ukraine, the European Council of Jewish Communities and the European Jewish Union.

This all political expediency.

Wow.  :lol:

And once again, it is shown that the operating lense through which it is best to analyse Ukrainian politics is that of oligarchy:

On Thursday, the government appointed a new chief executive for Ukrtransnafta, but Lazorko didn't want to leave. The bodyguards for the new appointee had to fight through a security cordon to get their boss into the office. Kolomoisky's reaction was swift. He occupied Ukrtransnafta's headquarters with a detail of camouflaged men, arriving with an entourage that included legislators.

Video footage of the raid looks as dramatic as anything seen in the 1990's, when the former Soviet Union's first billionaires were working on their first millions. Asked by a Radio Liberty journalist what a regional governor was doing at a state company's office so late, Kolomoisky replied (I'm editing out copious cursing): "I came to see you. I have no other chance to see your face, Radio Liberty. Why aren't you asking how Ukrtransnafta was seized and Russian subversives got in here? Or have you come to see Kolomoisky? We liberated the building from Russian subversives who had seized it, and you and your Liberty are sitting here watching like a dame watches for her unfaithful husband."

It would now be natural for Poroshenko to fire Kolomoisky as governor. "The country received a challenge yesterday," Nayyem wrote in a blog post. Failure to respond, he said, would show Ukraine's creditors and allies that it is indeed "the failed state of which Vladimir Putin has been dreaming for many years."

Even if Poroshenko fires Kolomoisky, however, his wealth and influence on the volunteer battalions would still make him a powerful figure. When he labels someone a "Russian subversive," thousands of armed people listen, if only because he has been better able to equip and pay them than the government in Kiev. Kolomoisky is too shrewd a businessman to bring about a military coup, but he will hardly allow Poroshenko -- who was until recently his equal -- to push him around.

It's time for layer upon layer of irony

Dr Fox Arrested. For those too young or ignorant, the Brass Eye paedophile special was a masterwork. Go and watch it right now.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembered his less than glorious appearance on Brass Eye.

Pretty sure, yeah.

Also, looking at it, it was made probably just after the Charlie Hebdo attack (January 2015 issue).  You may also remember the edifying spectacle of journalists from other publications proclaiming free speech as sacrosant and absolute...while self-censoring their own coverage of Charlie Hebdo (not showing covers etc) as to not offend Muslim fundamentalists.

Although the Illuminati center of operations, it should be noted, is in Wisconsin:

That sounds like a hell of a flu.

A lot of male feminists, I've noticed, exempt themselves from their sweeping denunciations of male privilege and mansplaining quite a bit.  Its all those other males who are the problem, you know, the insufficiently enlightened ones.

23
A male feminist was going on a tirade about how we should all use "she" as the default pronoun when we don't know the gender of a party to stick it to the patriarchy. When I disagreed, the words "you can't know what it's like to be a woman in this society" came out of his mouth. At me.

There were no survivors.

I...what? 

Even though I've been up close to 48 hours at this stage I know, even with a full night's sleep, that would make no sense.

Well given that my worldview requires none of those things to be true, I'd say "not much".

Also, there are historical accounts of Stonehenge going back to the 11th century, and it was subjected to substansial restoration work - not removal - from the 1890s to the 1950s.

I know some snake owners who would kill for that much mice at that price.

I was hoping in the third act it would be revealed that the corrupt cops were themselves cops acting outside of the system in hope of taking down a yet higher corrupt figure (like a Mayor or Governor).  But then the story becomes a parable about he who stares into the abyss and the ends justifying the means.

I wanted to call our last two cats "Sweet" and "Sour", but my parents overruled me. :sad:
