The Tallest Man on Earth: The Light in Demos, Ep. 2: "Same Ghost"

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 15:10

"Same Ghost" is the second episode of The Light in Demos, a video project produced, written, directed, recorded, shot and edited by The Tallest Man on Earth.


On certain nights
the ringing in my ears
louder than the rustle of leaves

along the path
but who am I to scare
and who are you to follow out here?

deep in the mile I will walk for you
deep in the lines of our summer
I see the clouds and they seem so young
what wicked mind did set their trails
were they the ones that got away?

the longest train
that I ever saw
but what is in a ticket to move?

could beauty lie
in my place of fear
run and the horizon will too

deep in the mile I will walk for you
deep in the lines of our summer
I see the clouds and they seem so young
what wicked mind did set their trail
were they the ones that got away?

you might as well be on my shoulders, I suppose
I can pretend I do not see you, and so it goes
we can talk about just where the clouds are from

Bannon Latest Casualty of White House Circular Firing Squad

Fri, 08/18/2017 - 13:36

Everybody saw this coming, and today Stephen Bannon is the latest Trump crony to get tossed under a very crowded bus.

Let's face it, though: Bannon isn't the problem. He was just someone Trump used to get into the White House, and this will change nothing about what Trump is doing.

But it will be amusing to watch the right wing lose its marbles (if they still have any to lose).

Photo of the Day: GOP Rep. Rohrabacher Poses With Holocaust Denier Chuck C. Johnson at Assange Meeting

Thu, 08/17/2017 - 14:23

Here we see Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher posing on the steps of the Ecuadoran embassy in London with Holocaust-denying white supremacist Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME), as they prepare to meet with Julian Assange. Johnson, of course, is making that hand sign that white supremacists love to pretend has nothing to do with white supremacism.

This is one of the more disgraceful things I've seen a Republican do this year, in a year when the GOP has thoroughly disgraced itself on so many levels.

Here are some other photos of Johnson, for comparison.

GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher Collaborates With Holocaust-Denying White Supremacist to Meet With Julian Assange

Wed, 08/16/2017 - 21:33

The Daily Caller reports today that Rage Furby Chuck C. Johnson set up a meeting between Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and Julian Assange.

Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Wednesday at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, The Daily Caller has learned.

Charles Johnson, a conservative journalist, told TheDC that he arranged the meeting for Assange because the WikiLeaks chief wants to strike a deal with the U.S. so he can stop living in asylum.

Rohrabacher’s spokesman Ken Grubbs told TheDC, “I can confirm that the meeting happened” and said that Johnson was in the meeting.

Chuck C. Johnson is a notorious white supremacist who recently came out as a Holocaust denier in an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, in a far right racist group that has now been deleted. But we saved Chuck's comment:

what are your thoughts on the Holocaust, WW2, and the JQ in general?

I do not and never have believed the six million figure. I think the Red Cross numbers of 250,000 dead in the camps from typhus are more realistic. I think the Allied bombing of Germany was a ware crime. I agree with David Cole about Auschwitz and the gas chambers not being real. I read the German War (highly recommend), Bloodlands, Mein Kampf, and all of David Irving. I'm more or less of the view that the war was an outgrowth of the efforts of communism to spread itself throughout the world. I also believe that the fears of German extermination were not misplaced, especially in light of the Ukrainian famine. But I support Israel as a Jewish state and Zionism as a concept. I'm pro-ethno state, generally. I understand why and how Hitler rose to power but think too much of our focus on World War II is spent trying to understand Hitler and not enough is spent trying to understand Weimar. Mecius Moldbug, aka Curtis Yarvin, is right. America is a communist country.

UPDATE at 8/16/17 7:25:03 pm by Charles Johnson

Here's an archived copy of Johnson's Holocaust-denying comment, for the record.

I thought Donald Trump couldn't shock me any more, but that press conference yesterday was a real jaw-dropper. Folks, we have a president who openly supports and makes excuses for neo-Nazis. It's been obvious for a long time, of course, but yesterday he dropped the mask and made it undeniable.

Stephen digs into President Trump's off-script/off-the-rocker press conference in which he contradicted statements given on Monday condemning hate groups.

Video: Trump's Absolutely Horrific Press Conference on #Charlottesville

Tue, 08/15/2017 - 17:09

I'm at a loss for words to describe the awfulness of this press conference today by Donald Trump. He is literally defending the neo-Nazis who marched and rioted in Charlottesville. Watch for yourself if you can stand it.

Even journalists who usually try to remain detached and impartial on Twitter are reacting with horror to this one.

A defiant President Trump laid some of the blame for the violence in Charlottesville with alt-left groups along with white nationalist groups as he defended the statements he made in the wake of the violence.

Trump's statements didn't horrify everyone, though.
