    YouTube Deletes Channel of Spain’s Populist Vox Party
    “Serious attack on freedom of expression”.

    [​IMG]

    YouTube has deleted the populist Spanish Vox Party’s entire channel in yet another example of the Google-owned platform targeting right of center political content.

    “Spain’s far-right Vox party @vox_es has demanded an explanation from @YouTube as to why their account has been closed or suspended ‘without any explanation’,” reported the Spain in English Twitter account.

    Seems like California ruins everything. Really puzzling how people like Brown and Newsome get elected. Apparently the rich don't care and the middle class are stupid.

    Last R' was Arnold... he wasn't very effective then moved left. Even Orange County turned blue.

    What? That Bataan march happened about 80 years ago. What does that have to do with Japan today? With cracks like that, you really have no right to complain about the Dems pretending it's the 60s (only 60 years ago) or for that matter, the ridiculous slave reparations. I may as well start talking about how expats must be crazy to live in Panama with that Noriega guy in charge. And why would anyone visit the US south, with its race segregated drinking fountains? And don't forget to ask the Germans for help - they have lots of experience in concentration camps! Really, you are better than that. That sounds like a JB Lions joke.

    And also sorry, but the US didn't do squat about missiles flying overhead, partly because there never were missiles flying overhead. They were in space, outside the atmosphere. Mostly just a bunch of scare tactics worked up by the US and Japan government deep state guys, trying to scare people into giving up yet more of their rights. I have to say that most Japanese saw through that better than most Americans did. I still find it funny that Americans are afraid of tiny and distant North Korea.

    Vox managed just over 10% of the National vote in last months General elections. It's in Andalusia where they are the most voted party. Not too bad for a party that's about 5 years old!

    Good point about the missile trajectory being miles high. I don't think USA is afraid of Korea but we are concerned about another war with China. We are obligated by treaty and political responsibility to protect South Korea.

    I agree that China is the threat, especially with Pooh Bear in charge. But I think the odds are better than 50/50 of military conflict with the US. I think the results will be bad for both countries, but will mark the end of US global dominance.

    Would be a battle royal for sure. China's navy is still smaller than the USA and they would also be fighting most of western Europe and Japan.

    The real question is where would the battle take place. Korea, Japan or mainland China.

    Also, reading this today:

    The China Tribunal concluded that “forced organ harvesting has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale,

    I didnt intend to do anything but be crass. But, you have to admit, The japanese continue their depravity in areas like porn, it hasnt gone away. I was joking, you took offense for sone reason. But while we are at it.... Also what about japan raping the oceans? The fukashima release of radioactive water, and it reaching Alaska? Then they threatened to drain it all into ocean, then got intl pushback? And over fishing all over in intl waters. They buy votes in dominica in caribe, did you see the documentary? Far from innocent smily people. The japanese copied US tecnology and were as bad as Chinese with that in some cases. Edward deming whats his name taught them quality, so they beat the USA mfg especially in cars. Don’t paint them as innocent great people just because you live there. History is history. Culture is too. But the good news is At least no riots over there. More respect too. Why did Abe buy jets if no threat?

    Female Athletes Challenge Policy Allowing Transgenders to Compete Against Women
    Female student athletes in Connecticut are challenging a new policy that allows transgenders to compete against women. Attorneys representing the students submitted a complaint on Monday, alleging that the policy “directly and negatively impacts” the “dreams and goals” of the female athletes.
    Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) attorneys representing three female track athletes submitted a complaint on Monday to the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, asking it to investigate illegal discrimination against the female high school students over a new policy adopted by the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC).

    ADF alleges that the female athletes have been deprived of honors and opportunities ever since the CIAC adopted a policy allowing biological males to compete in against females in athletics. ADF adds that CIAC’s policy is in direct violation with the requirements of Title IX.

    Pupil Thrown Out of Class for Saying There Are Only Two Genders
    A 17-year-old school pupil was allegedly removed from class for failing to be “inclusive” by saying there are only two genders.

    Footage covertly filmed on a mobile phone by a Scottish school pupil went viral after it appeared to show a teacher reprimanding the boy for stating that there are only two genders.

    In a separate room from the rest of the class, the pupil is heard questioning why he was removed for expressing his “opinion” that there are only two genders, to which the 56-year-old male teacher replied: “What you were saying is not very inclusive. This is an inclusive school.”

    The pupil rebutted that “scientifically, there are just two genders” and that he thought it was “silly” to insist otherwise. He also challenged the teacher on why he could share his “opinion” in the classroom but the pupil could not, prompting the teacher to reply: “I am not putting my opinion out. I am stating what is national school authority policy.”

    “Well, that’s not scientific whatsoever,” the pupil said, to which the teacher responded: “Not every policy is scientific.”

    “I know what you think, and I know what the authority thinks, I know the authority’s point of view is very clear,” the 56-year-old added later, as if that should settle the matter.

    “[W]e make no discrimination on the grounds of [gender],” the teacher declared.

    “I wasn’t making a discrimination,” the 17-year-old rebutted. “I’m simply saying there are two genders. Male and female. Anything else is a personal identification.”

    The teacher told the pupil that he had “chose[n] to make an issue” by failing to use his “opportunity to keep quiet”, before accusing the young man of making “bad choices”.

    When in a hole, dig deeper?
    They Japanese are not innocent? The women and children as well? What are you saying? I judge people as individuals, not as members of a tribe. I would never say there's nothing wrong with Japan, but you seem to suggest that every problem the country has is a reflection of all the people in it, as though all 120 million Japanese think alike.

    Depravity in porn? Taken a look at the US porn industry lately? There is no more depravity here than anywhere. The funny thing about Japanese porn, is that the number one fans seem to be Americans. Most Japanese would think "bukakke" is something people put on rice, for example. But the US has made an industry of bukakke porn, always saying "oh, this is from Japan." As though it's a daily occurrence or something. Sushi on a naked woman? Again far more popular in the west.

    If my daughters were living in the US, they would have to be dealing with sex, drugs, school shootings and alcohol issues daily. Single teenage mothers are almost unheard of here. School girls don't tart up in bikinis and take bathroom selfies for Instagrams here. There is no doubt at all that this is a far better environment to raise children in. So tell me which country is more depraved?

    Raping the oceans? Who isn't? Not to defend it, but it's a worldwide practice, and Japan is far from the worst. Are you talking about whales? How do you feel about Iceland and Norway?

    Fukushima sucks. The government lies about it suck. You know who suffers the most from that? Japanese people. It's not an easy problem to take care of. And since western nations routinely dump waste on developing countries, they are hardly in any position to talk. You think Japan is unique in all this too?

    So they copied technology. Cry me a river. All countries do that when they are trying to catch up, including the US. I can't count the number of great "American inventions" I was taught about in school - only to later learn they were British or otherwise. Edison himself stole tech like nobody's business. And he's a national hero.

    Abe and his crew are retrogressive rich kids who want more power and toys. Like the US deep state, they are eager to take away privacy and rights from the Japan. Unlike, the US, lost of Japanese are upset about this because they value personal privacy. Abe buys jets because he likes to project power in a weakening nation - weakening mostly because of crap government policies. Plenty of people are both creative and entrepreneurial here, but the environment is not conducive to success. That is changing recently, though. The other is China, not North Korea. China is indeed a threat.

    Of course I took offense to your joke. Would you make Nazi jokes about Germans in this forum and expect them to laugh along? Or maybe they can just joke back about how Americans like to drop nuclear bombs on people, slaughter wedding parties in the Mid-East, slaughter kids in Vietnamese villages or shoot black people. Do you feel it's OK to use US atrocities to paint the nature of all Americans? Maybe I am a little more sensitive, because racism against Asians is still perfectly acceptable. What about those Academy Awards where the black host talked about racism and then brought on some Asian kids so he could make Asian jokes at their expense? It goes on and on. Especially ironic coming from a country like the US, which is falling apart at the seams.

    The world is a big place. 120 million in Japan, and it's a diverse crowd. Most don't fit your stereotype of happy smiling people. There are all kinds of people here, believe it or not. Virtually none of them had anything to do with the Bataan death march. I doubt many more have even heard of it, for that matter.
