Rememebering Harambe

The Great Ape Harambe was murdered two years ago today.  Let’s never forget.

After his death, Harambe became a political symbol.

He posthumously received thousands of write-in votes in the 2016 election, making him one of the more successful third party candidates.

Guess what? Nothing on IPR about this today.  Here we go again, doing their job for them.

History Repeats Itself

rwa_death-in-the-mirror

The situation over at The Other Place is so bad now that they are posting screenshots of IPR-X articles from over a year ago.  We can’t blame them, IPR-X articles are really really great.

History repeats itself once more.  Just as in the waning days of Third Party Watch when the re-posting of old articles from the main competition became the norm, IPR rattles on its deathbed doing the same (although at least IPR gives credit where it’s due!).  No need to worry.  Once IPR 404’s, IPR-X will still be here, reporting third party and independent news.

I’ll stick with you baby for a thousand years

The slow death of IPR is somewhat sad given my role there in its golden years.  But it’s only karma for it to fail due to its failure to fulfill its stated purpose.

In other news, check out the firestorm that erupted after prominent Libertarian Party leader Ryan Ramsey, a friend to IPR-X, linked to us on Facebook in celebration of the great Walter Block’s endorsement of Joshua Smith for LNC chairman (in opposition to the incompetent current chair Nicholas Sarwark).  A group calling itself the Libertarian Anti-Fascist Committee (Antifa?) continued the discussion on its page, which evolved into a trashing of the committee, which has a very low Facebook rating of a little over 1 star. In contrast, the Nathan Norman for President page has the maximum 5 star rating.

The Return of the Thin White Duke

On this day in 1976, the Thin White Duke returned to England and greeted his fans at Victoria Station.

Britain is ready for a fascist leader . . . I think Britain could benefit from a fascist leader. After all, fascism is really nationalism . . . I believe very strongly in fascism, people have always responded with greater efficiency under a regimental leadership . . .

You’ve got to have an extreme right-wing front come up and sweep everything off its feet and tidy everything up
