When Betteridges Law and Godwin’s Law Met, It Was Murder

The Death of the Media

Hitler News

CNN should keep looking for that plane (even after it is found). Anyway, here we go again with the Stupid: Can this KKK leader rebrand?

(CNN) — Pointy hats, white robes, crosses burning, bodies hanging from trees.

The images of the Ku Klux Klan are reminders of the nation’s ugliest moments from the Civil War through the struggle for racial equality in the 1960s.

Last Sunday, the world was confronted with another image of the Klan: 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, a white supremacist and avowed anti-Semite, in the back of a police car, spitting, “Heil Hitler!”


[Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona], who lives in Missouri, insists there’s a new Klan for modern times — a Klan that’s “about educating people to our ideas and getting people to see our point of view to … help change things.”

He said he and those like him can spread that message without violence — a sort of rebranding of the Klan.

Betteridges Law of Headlines posits that if the headline poses a question, the answer is “NO.” And essentially implies that the publisher is wasting your time, which seems to be CNN’s new business plan (this week).

The MPS Magic Quadrant Guide to Theocracy vs. Democracy

Tengrain — and if you think I was going to put my usual signature somewhere in those four quadrants, you’re crazier than I am!

In my line of work, we get these sorts of “magic quadrant” analysis of where our products are compared to the competition. Some people find them useful.

UPDATE: According to Theocracy Watch, the theocratic governments of the world are Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Vatican City.
