For the past nine episodes of Thomas L. Knapp’s Knapp Stir Podcast, I have served a pivotal role. In many ways, I should be credited as a producer of the show. A large majority of the content from these past episodes either comes from me directly or my surrogates on topics I want Knapp to discuss. This is done through Knapp’s “Thanks for Asking” threads for which he devotes most of the podcast. Topics I had Knapp discuss included the Thin White Duke David Bowie, 2016 FPP Peace Prize winner and Libertarians for Trump founder Walter Block, conspiracy theorist and possible government agent Andy Jacobs, Cyberpig Paulie Frankel and his failing health, Knapp’s excessive profanity, PLAS Place founder Robert Milnes, and PizzaGate. Although I started off disliking Knapp, he is starting to grow on me. Even though I usually disagree with everything he says, I have begun to enjoy his podcasts. For that reason, I’m proud to be a major contributor.
To better understand this situation, let me go deeper into the backstory.
I first commented on the knappster blog on the October 5 “Thanks for Asking” thread. I asked a question, it was deleted, and I was banned from the site. IPR (from which I and many others are banned) has people like Knapp, who think of me as a terrible person since I dared to be different and challenged libertarian orthodoxy. These people have a hare trigger to ban me where ever I may comment. On October 9, Knapp discussed me (for the first time I believe) on Episode 99 of the Knapp Stir Podcast, and he was particularly nasty. As a result, I wrote an article for the Grand Inquirer called “The Corruption of Thomas L. Knapp,” discussing Knapp’s big ego, failures in politics, and questionable activities as an IPR moderator. Afterwards, Robert Milnes questioned on the October 13 “Thanks for Asking” thread why my October 5 question was censored and left unanswered. Knapp answered Milnes insufficiently and inaccurately. During Episode 100 of the Knapp Stir Podcast, Knapp read Milnes’ question, repeated the answer, and then announced that Milnes had been banned from the site. The next week, as documented at IPR-X, Harry Areola asked a series of questions. In his answer and on Episode 101, Knapp decreed that anyone who discussed me or Robert Milnes would be banned. I continued listening to the podcasts and instructed my surrogates to ask certain questions. I was hoping to find out more about Knapp for new Grand Inquirer story ideas. The only story I formulated in this time period was “Thomas L. Knapp Goes ‘Full-Retard’,” discussing Knapp’s vote for Gary Johnson and subsequent decision to take a photo of his ballot, in effect making a permanent record of his idiocy. Nevertheless, as the episodes went on I realized I was actually enjoying the shows. I began looking forward to Sunday, when the shows came out. I now know that that is because I have had effective control over the content and for that I thank Knapp. I thank Knapp for allowing me to make his show entertaining. For that reason, the knappster blog will now be added to my blogroll.
Enjoy these podcasts for which I should be credited as Producer:
The Internet became just a little better recently. The hate-site Irregular Times has been completely eradicated from the web. To that, we say, Good Riddance!
Among its crimes against reality, Irregular Times made false claims about the presidential campaign of Nathan Norman. When exposed to the truth, it refused to retract its lies. The site went out of its way to demonize Donald Trump, polluting the minds of its readers and causing disunity in the nation. The site attacked the character of one Robert Milnes, making fun of the fact he suffers from clinical depression.
No longer will Irregular Times minimize the threats posed by Islamic extremists and anti-White terrorists. No longer will Irregular Times fear monger about global warming and so-called racism. No longer will Irregular Times impugn the character of noble citizens.
We thank the Internet for ridding us of the rubbish Irregular Times. It is Karma for IPR-X, the site founded by one who Irregular Times so viciously attacked, to be the first to report on its demise, while IPR remains silent.
I did a Google image search of “Robert Milnes for President” to learn more about a potential ally, adversary, or running mate for my potential 2020 presidential campaign: Robert Milnes, owner of the PLAS Place. Surprisingly, the second image to pop up in the search was a very strange meme:
Does anyone have any information on who the man is in the meme? He does not look well. I do not believe that is Robert Milnes.
Anyone have any idea why the meme was created or why it is the second most popular result in a Google image search?
If you know anything please comment below.
Over at the PLAS Place, entertainer Nathan Norman suggested how activist Robert Milnes could potentially win the White House in 2020:
First join the Democratic Party. Then do something to get major attention like streaking at a sporting event. Then when they interview you announce you are running for president as a Democrat and direct everyone to this website.
Milnes rejected the idea, but “Wahid Tariq Fasil” AKA “Wang Tang Fu” AKA Paulie “Cyberpig” Frankel liked the idea and put out a suggestion of his own:
I sounds like a good plan to me. The Democrats are down to fewer governors and state legislatures than they have had since the 1920s. They are the minority in both houses of Congress and have lost the Presidency. The Republicans will now control most of the appointments on the Supreme Court. They are losing states that they hadn’t lost since 1988 when it comes to the electoral vote. With every election they are losing support in the midwest, and have virtually no hope anywhere in the south or non-coastal west in electoral votes. Their losses are now spreading to the Northeast as well, with Pennsylvania and parts of Maine, and nearly New Hampshire as well, going over to the Republicans. If they don’t take a radical step and nominate someone like Robert Milnes or Nathan Norman, they will become a permanent minority with no power at all, especially when Trump starts his deportations.
Therefore, if Robert Milnes doesn’t take Nathan Norman’s advice, Norman should take his own advice so that he can become the next Democratic Presidential candidate in 2020.
Interview took place today on knappster blogspot article Thanks For Asking! — 10/17/16
Harry Areola: Are you running the knappster wordpress blog? https://knappsterblog.wordpres…
Thomas L. Knapp: Thanks for asking!
No, that blog is a troll project by the group that’s also been trolling my Thanks For Asking! threads — a group of which I’m going to tentatively assume you are a member.
Harry Areola: No. No. I am not a member. My brother Marlon is though.
In other news, who would you nominate for the Supreme Court?
Thomas L. Knapp: SCOTUS? If I got to nominate the entire court, I would probably pick nine figures from Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum — Colbert and nine random picks, preferably all female pop stars.
Harry Areola: Who did you vote for/support in every general/primary election since you were born?
Harry Areola: For president that is.
Thomas L. Knapp: I had mild opinions prior to being able to vote (when I was ten I didn’t like Ford because he was bald and so I preferred Carter).
The presidential elections I have voted in:
- 1988: No primary vote, Dukakis in the general election.
- 1992: No primary vote, carried petitions as a volunteer for Perot, voted for Perot in November.
- 1996: Supported Tompkins for the Libertarian nomination, voted for Browne in the general election.
- 2000: Supported Gorman for the Libertarian nomination, voted for Browne in the general election.
- 2004: Supported Russo for the Libertarian nomination, voted for Badnarik in the general election.
- 2008: Supported Steve Kubby (and after he was eliminated Mary Ruwart) for the Libertarian nomination, voted for McKinney in the general election.
- 2012: Supported no candidates, cast no votes.
- 2016: Supported Darryl W. Perry for the Libertarian nomination, undecided as to who I’ll vote for next month if I vote in the presidential election (likely choices include a write-in for Perry, abstaining, or possibly Johnson or Stein).
Harry Areola: Okay. My last question for now. Do you think the William Stinglen death scene was fake?
Thomas L. Knapp: Thanks for asking!
- I’ve never heard of William Stinglen;
- I don’t read Robert Milnes’s web site;
- People who make a habit of linking to Robert Milnes’s web site or otherwise referring to him, to Nathan Norman, et al., won’t remain welcome here.
