Nakhon Sawan UFO seekers #ufo #fundie us.cnn.com

Nakhon Sawan (CNN) — A hilltop in central Thailand is attracting UFO seekers who believe extraterrestrials hover above a huge Buddha statue, send telepathic communiques, walk across nearby sugarcane fields and use a crocodile-infested lake as a portal from their planets -- Pluto and Loku.
Though it may sound like science fiction, a small group of individuals claims messages from aliens arriving in spaceships include plenty of traditional religious teachings too -- leading them to believe they are actually Buddhist.

It's all happening three hours by road or rail north from Bangkok in Nakhon Sawan -- which translates to "City of Heaven."
Without all the UFO hype, it's just a laid-back small town. But followers believe that if you meditate on Khao Kala hill, outside of Nakhon Sawan, you could hear the talkative silver creatures as voices in your head, speaking whatever language your thoughts usually chatter.

Elizabeta Madjarevic #racist #homophobia balkaninsight.com

Croatia has suspended a senior diplomat at its embassy in Berlin over Facebook posts in which she promoted the European Union’s newest member as populated only by “white Europeans”.

Elizabeta Madjarevic, the embassy’s first secretary, was recalled to Croatia and her dismissal has been initiated, the foreign ministry said on Monday.

“She is withdrawn from office. Her term expires. She is suspended. A diplomat is never a private person,” Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman told a press conference.

On Friday, the Croatian news portal Index published a series of posts Madjarevic made in English on Facebook in which she extolled the idea of a “white Europe”.

“Pure and authentic Europe,” she wrote on August 8, alongside pictures of Croatia’s Adriatic coast. “Just white Europeans as it used to be only 30 years ago in the whole Europe. This should be a good advertisement for vacations. One would think this is no longer possible, but luckily it is.”

Over a period of months, Madjarevic implied in her Facebook posts that Muslim migrants and refugees were coming to Europe with the goal of ‘Islamising’ the continent, and on one occasion suggested a link between LGBT sexual orientation and paedophilia.

Following the Index report, Madjarevic initially said she stood behind her “personal position” as part of her conservative worldview and that she was neither “an official nor a politician”.

The next day, however, Madjarevic’s Facebook account was deleted and she told Croatian-German online magazine Fenix that her profile had been hacked and that she was not the author of all the controversial posts.

She suggested the media reports were in fact attacks on the government and Grlic Radman.

The foreign minister, however, rejected the possibility that Madjarevic was not behind the posts.

Masked Croatian Assailants #racist balkaninsight.com

Croatian Serb leaders condemned on Thursday two attacks by masked assailants on local Serbs watching a televised football match near the town of Knin.

The Serbs in the villages of Uzdolje and Djevrske were watching a game involving Red Star from the Serbian capital Belgrade when the attackers burst into the bars, media reports said. Five, including a minor, were lightly injured.

Police in Sibenik-Knin County confirmed the attack, specifying that five persons were injured in the attack in Uzdolje, one of which was a minor. Just 20 minutes later, they received information about the attack in Djevrske, in which no one was hurt. The bar itself was damaged.

Police said a number of people were taken in for questioning on Thursday. Knin was a Serb rebel stronghold during Croatia’s 1991-95 war during the collapse of federal Yugoslavia. Anja Simpraga, deputy prefect of Sibenik-Knin County, said there were also British, US and French nationals present. One of the injured persons was 17 years old. His father said the teenager was bleeding when he arrived home.

“He was sitting right by the door [of the bar] when someone came in and hit him on the head, and he [the son] fell; and as he fell, then once again, someone hit him on the back,” the father, whose name was not revealed, told N1 TV.

The father described it as the first apparently ethnically-motivated incident in the 15 years the family had lived in the area.

Boris Milosevic, president of the Serbian National Council and an MP supporting the government majority, took to Facebook to condemn “unfortunately yet another attack on Serbs”.

“This summer, after the death of Radoje Petkovic at Viskovo [near the city of Rijeka], the attack on the Red Star water polo players on the Split waterfront and the attack on seasonal workers on [the island of] Brac, we have another hate crime, where the attackers attacked and tried to hurt more people motivated solely by hatred of the nationality of the attacked,” Milosevic wrote.

Petkovic, 63, vice-president of the Serbian National Minority Council for the town of Kastav near Rijeka, died on June 10, weeks after he was beaten unconscious by 48-year-old Ilija Glavic, a Croatian war veteran.

On February 9, a group of men attacked three Red Star Belgrade water polo players in the coastal city of Split. The Croatian government and President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic condemned the attack.

On June 9, a group of five men, members of Hajduk Split ultras Torcida, attacked four seasonal workers in the town of Supetar on Brac. Two of the workers were Croatian Serbs distinguished by the attackers by their dialect.

Milosevic called the attack on Wednesday “a barbaric and cowardly act”, adding that there were women and children in the bar.

“This is not an ultras showdown. Any attempt to relativise this ugly event means justifying violence and siding with the attacker. Will the production of hate stop?” he asked.

Health Minister Milan Kujundzic condemned the incident.

It's not possible to worldbuild without ending up with it coming from a position of cultural hegemony, which is flat-out colonialism. It's also extremely presumptuous and colonialist to presume that the world is the same for everyone and that the world is objective in the way that worldbuilding necessitates.

There's also the fact that the impulse to worldbuild comes from a place that lacks real understanding of the structures and oppressive systems that make up our society. That lack of understanding leads to major issues of transferring over the author's biases writ large. Couple that with the fact that worldbuilding is primarily the realm of SF/F, a genre that's predominantly loved by fascists, and I think you see that I'm getting at.

Worldbuilding is at best reactionary intellectual masturbation, and at worst (which its often at its worst) purposeful fascist propaganda.

[Note: The original formatting and paragraph breaks have been lightly edited for readability. Several additional “examples” from elsewhere on Nyland’s site have also been added; see link. –shy]

Edo Nyland maintains that there never were any Indo-Europeans, there was no proto-Indo-European language and the family of Indo-European languages is a long perpetuated inaccuracy. It an academic fraud because the truth has long been known to a select group of religious scholars, who have kept this knowledge secret, as was done in the past millennia. [...]

ENGLISH LANGUAGE MANIPULATED

Other manipulated languages are German, Latin, Greek, Russian, Sanskrit, Hebrew, Hungarian, Japanese etc. etc. Our English etymological dictionaries do no justice to the tremendous language creation efforts of the Benedictine clergy and their grammarians. Almost every English word existing at the time of Shakespeare, was invented by these marvelous linguists. [...] The language used in this enormous effort was Saharan, once the universal language of continental Europe and Britain, but now best represented by the Basque Language. The grammarians, who were professional linguists, worked for almost one millennium with the Benedictines. They came primarily from Liguria, located in Northern Italy and the Alps. Their Ligurian language was, as far as can be determined, identical to Basque. The method of new word construction used by them was generally done with the vowel-interlocking (Ogam) formula, which utilized the first three letters (VCV) of each Saharan word in the description. The VCV's which were then agglutinated, always had to have their vowels interlocked. To make the product pronounceable, several vowels were removed and one or more h's, if present. The system is best illustrated with a couple of simple examples.

begin:
.be-egi-in.
ibe - egi - ino
ibeni - egindura - inor
to start - the action - someone
"Someone start the action."

dog:
.do-og.
ado - ogu
adoretsu - oguzi
brave - speaks out loud
"Brave and speaks out loud."

doctor:
.do-ok.-.to-or.
odo - oke - eto - ora
odoldun - okerkeria - etorri - orain
bloody - injury - to come – quickly
"A bloody injury, come quickly."

ejaculate:
eja - aku - ule - ete
eia - akuilatu - uletsu - etendura
"to come on, keep on" - "to stimulate" - "hairy" - "crack"
"Keep on stimulating the hairy crack."

Africa:
afa - ari - ika
afa - arinari eman - ikaradura
happy - to escape – tragedy
"We are happy to have escaped the tragedy."

It is clear from these and hundreds of other examples, that The English language is an invented language.

Congress needs to protect people from exploitation by giving them full information about their reproductive rights. Males only have a right to produce with their own genitals, they don't have a right to gestate a baby in a box or make eggs from stem cells.

[...]

[M]y comment was about the future. Trans women will never be allowed to gestate, even with future technology from aliens. Congress will ban it and end gay marriage so kids are taught the truth about the future and their reproductive rights.

Imagine an alien race finally comes to Earth and this is the man they meet.

[Facebook Post: Netflix announced a new anti-white show (Dear White People) that promotes white genocide. I cancelled my account. Do the same. I don't find this funny. The last thing blacks want is for white males to organize and that's not too far away! White males are the absolute target of the gov't with illegal affirmative action which violates the 14th amendment and the supreme ct refuses to hear the case because they know it does. The media also attacks us constantly with interracial couples in every show and commercial and portraying white males as incompetent. Everything this world is was created by Europeans and Americans. F'ing blacks didn't even have a calendar, a wheel, or aa numbering system until the Brits showed up. Google serotonin by race, IQ by race and then violent crime by race and then compare that to the F'ing message the media portrays. Time to turn off the TV's.]

That’s John Ventre. He was, until recently, MUFON State Director for Pennsylvania and oversaw field investigations of the most compelling of the state’s approximately 600 annual UFO sightings. You may have seen him on History Channel's UFO Hunters or Anderson Live. Ventre wrote this on his personal Facebook page in response to a post from a popular alt-right account characterizing Netflix’s Dear White People as promoting “white genocide.” […] He further alluded to pseudoscientific race science, which has found purchase in the mainstream right, spread by prominent conservative think tank figures like Charles Murray, who wields unjustified extrapolations from existing IQ data to argue against improving living standards for the poor.

Ventre’s comments have kicked off a wave of anger and resignations across MUFON, most recently UFO researcher Dr. Chris Cogswell. Cogswell was named Director of Research for MUFON in January, but announced his resignation from the organization on Twitter in April. “When I first joined MUFON, taking on the Director of Research position, I believed this issue [with Ventre] had been dealt with,” Cogswell said. But on April 13, Cogswell learned of Ventre’s “continued role within MUFON as an active member” after Ventre emailed him about preparations for the 2018 MUFON Symposium in Cherry Hill, NJ. “Within six hours of finding out I had resigned. My internal conscience would not let me continue,” he said.

MUFON boasts nearly 4,000 members and 500 investigators across a coalition of just-the-facts data collectors, alien abductees, far-thinking engineers, conspiracy theorists, ancient alien pseudohistorians, religious visionaries and ufology enthusiasts of every possible stripe. If MUFON is successful, who would the first aliens actually meet? An organization representative of the full spectrum of human experience, or a club of aging white men?

It’s a question MUFON is currently struggling to answer, with Ventre’s post a crisis point in the organization’s ongoing evolution.

[...]

Comparing the possibility of white genocide to The Purge, Ventre professed to be unaware of the term’s origins in neo-Nazism as reference to a demographic decline white supremacist groups use to portray prejudice as self-defense, guarding the white race against multiculturalism. “I don’t hate anybody, I apologized for what I said. It was in a fit of anger, it was one time in my entire life,” Ventre said, mentioning his multiracial grandson and a black man from his gym for whom he arranged a job interview. “I’m feeling like because I’m a 60-year-old white man I’m getting totally unfairly attacked here.”

By the end of May 2017, Ventre was removed from his state directorship, but MUFON’s response didn’t stop a wave of researchers from distancing themselves. In July, board member and Washington State Director James Clarkson stepped down, citing both Ventre’s post and MUFON’s association with deep-pocketed donors like J.Z. Knight. Knight preaches to tens of thousands of followers through her Lemurian warrior persona Ramtha, a 35,000-year-old spirit who leads “spiritual drinking games” while accusing Jewish people of paying their way out of the gas chambers and disparaging Mexicans, homosexuals and “organic farmers.” Like Knight, Ventre was also a high-tier “Inner Circle” donor to MUFON.

Asked for comment after the Cogswell resignation, Clarkson told Newsweek, “There are many excellent state organizations, but money and power have corrupted the top. Same old story.”
