Rush Limbaugh Show (Hosted by Mark Belling) Discussed Bitcoin Today (Mon) For 9 Minutes...

Can't legally post the audio, but if you're a Rush 24/7 subscriber, you can listen here. Go to 08:00:00.
Got lots of facts wrong, and doesn't understand the trustless nature of Bitcoin (suggested that Rush set up his own coin... Rushcoin).
Nevertheless, even bad coverage is good coverage ;)

Some parting thoughts for both sides of this thing.

This whole shitshow for the last couple of days has been really depressing, so I'm going to go away (at least for a while) and stop worrying about all this crap. Before I do, I wanted to leave some parting thoughts for both sides:
GG:
I really wanted to like you guys, but you appear to have a severe allergy to anything resembling credibility. I think you guys imagine yourselves to be ideologically consistent defenders of free speech, but from the outside, I'm not seeing it. A couple of days ago, you had that big shitstorm because someone banned a dude from /Planetside for making a "trap" joke (while studiously avoiding discussing the important bit of context that the person was making a wisecrack about a cross-dresser and not just referring to a literal trap). So, sure. You're against censorship, and you're taking that all the way down to the trivial level of subreddit bans.
So then there's /fatpeoplehate. In case you don't know, they deleted and banned people for expressing dissenting views there. I sort of figured that your view of fatpeoplehate was similar to mine -- they're not worth complaining about because they're so far beyond redemption and so lacking in real credibility that it's like complaining about the KKK.
But apparently not. It seems like the only ideological consistency you people have is that you find the absolute biggest assholes and rush to their defense. And yeah, maybe there would have been some negative murmuring if ghazi had gotten the banhammer, but I highly doubt that posts about it would dominate your front page. I know you guys have these romantic libertarian notions about defending to the death your right to say it, but it's time to face up to the fact that you're not brave political revolutionaries defending peoples' right to speak out against the government, you're a bunch of anonymous dweebs on a fucking internet forum defending peoples' "right" to be hateful towards fat people on the same internet forum (and I put "right" in quotes because reddit has the same right to ban FPH that FPH had to ban users who weren't hateful enough).
So let's put aside morality for a minute and think about this from a practical standpoint. I've seen plenty of GGers say that they have to kind of set aside their ostensibly main goal of ethical journalism when considering Breitbart, because Breitbart is the only outlet that will give GG any kind of positive press. And I understand that the reality of politics and discourse is that sometimes you have to make those kinds of compromises if you want to get anywhere. But here's the thing. If being anti-censorship is one of your core values, but you're willing to maybe be a little bit flexible about your core values in order to keep the movement going, well, if there was ever a time to be "flexible" about your core values, it was with this whole FPH shitstorm. You didn't need to comment on it, you didn't need to talk about it, all you needed to do was look the other way and say "well, it's one group of censorious assholes fighting another group of censorious assholes, let's just sit this one out and enjoy the fireworks."
It's my feeling that over the last couple of months, GG had finally started to build up a modicum of credibility as it was being revealed that GGers actually aren't engaging directly in the alleged harassment that the Circlejerk Of Secondary Sources has been claiming. You've now taken that tiny little shred of credibility, stomped on it, shit on it, and thrown it out the window. Now, people can't take your side without taking the side of FPH, because that's the side you guys have chosen. You are now committed to toxicity.
The second practical consequence to defending these people is that you're giving them a refuge within your group. A lot of fatpeoplehaters are probably discovering GG for the first time right now, and while I'm sure your numbers are increasing at the moment, the size of your movement is being bolstered by the absolute dregs of the internet. I mean, these people are committed to being assholes. That was the entire point of their subreddit. And now those people who were committed to being assholes have joined your group. GG is about to get a lot more low brow and hateful than it used to be, because you're absorbing a hundred thousand low brow, hateful people.
So even if I were convinced that you were being ideologically consistent (and not just consistent in defending assholes), I have a feeling that the quality of your discourse is about to take a huge nosedive, and I don't think I'd stay neutral about GG for much longer.
Good luck, guys. You've just cemented your spot among the lunatic fringe.
aGG:
A (rather verbose) note: I realize there are people who refer to themselves as "anti-GG" whole only common opinion with other anti-GGers is that they, well, hate GG. I'm not addressing those people, but rather the subset of those people whom I would consider to be "SJWs". So we don't get into a big discussion about how SJWs aren't real or some bullshit, I'm going to be clear about what I consider an SJW to be, and you can personally decide whether this applies to you.
An SJW is someone who hangs out in communities like (but not limited to) SRS and the Tumblr feminist crowd. This community has its own methods of dealing with people they don't like ("calling out" private individuals on public sites, threats, harassment, suppression of opposing ideas, preemptively dismissing people based on their flawed notion of "privilege" that downplays wealth, etc), its own special lingo (words like "mansplaining", "manspreading", etc), and its own special definitions for existing dictionary words (like racism and sexism). Your personal views may not be in lockstep with the "official" views of this community, but you know whether or not you consider yourself to be a part of this group. The fact that they don't have a name for themselves is a convenient tactic for them, and nothing more. It doesn't mean that they don't exist. If you're gearing up to object to what I just said, don't bother -- you're one of the people I'm talking to.
Another note: I don't get my opinions about SJWs from anti-SJW meta subs. I've formed them through personal experience and discussion with these people, so don't assume that I'm speaking from a viewpoint that's highlighted the absolute worst of the worst.
It's true that I now hate SJWs less than I hate gamergate, but take a look at how low GG had to sink for me to get to that point. I'm sure there are other people walking away from GG at the moment, and you might be thinking that this is a big victory for you guys and that it somehow elevates you, but it doesn't. It just highlights how someone has to sink to surpass you.
What SJWs seem to forget in their constant quest to hate everything that isn't an SJW is that social justice exists because of free speech. Yeah, FPH are assholes, and GG are assholes for supporting them, but to say that I'm uncomfortable with the notion of mocking "freeze peaches" (or whatever the hell you guys are calling it) is the understatement of the century.
But we're just mocking the warped notion of free speech that GG has!
Bullshit. I've had enough direct contact with SJWs to know that for every one of you who hates something ironically, there's another one of you who is completely serious about it. I've shared some personal stories about my SJW encounters here before, and here's another one. I used to hang out in /enoughlibertarianspam, until it became increasingly clear to me that there were people there who were actually serious about mocking not just libertarians, but also fundamental rights like privacy, free expression, and anonymity. At one point there was a discussion about Bitcoin, and someone asked (in all seriousness) why people would want to be anonymous if they had nothing to hide. This person notably did not sign their real name to their post. They were upvoted for this comment, and when I replied that maybe that's a dangeous and knee-jerk road to take, I got downvoted for it. For every one of you who "gets" free speech and is just mocking it to troll GG and libertarians and whoever, there's a complete moron among you who believes that you're serious and doesn't have the faintest idea of the implications of what they're doing.
On a different note, in case some people don't realize who I am, I'm the guy who made that post about Ivy Valentine a few days ago. I got some interesting and varied answers, but one particularly common thread was the idea that my sexuality and sexual fantasies can be valid, but it can still be bad (harmful, immoral, sexist, and/or misogynist) to create any media for people with those fantasies. For the record, this is separate and distinct from the idea that my preferences are overrepresented in video game media, which is something that I agree with and am not challenging in any way.
The idea that sexual fantasies and sexuality are okay, but that it's wrong (in various ways) to create fictional media for people who have certain fantasies doesn't make sense to me. It's just doublethink, plain and simple. And I'm sure someone can type up some absurd rationalization for why it isn't, but give me a fucking break, people. If sex and sexual fantasies are okay, then sexual fantasies are not the enemy. And once again, for every one of you who can maintain the doublethink that hetero male sexual fantasies are okay, but creating media that caters to those tastes is bad, there's a moron out there who has decided that heterosexual male sexuality is invalid. I've seen it here on reddit with my own eyes (not posted in some meta sub). People regarding cis-hetero-male sexuality such utter contempt that you can practically see the froth and spittle spraying out onto their screens as they type about it.
Then there's Anita Sarkeesian. Like it or not, she's the de fadcto figurehead of the movement against GG. I could actually get behind Sarkeesian if she were willing to a) address her critics directly, and b) make some clarifications about some stuff that I believe she's left intentionally vague in order to make herself appear more reasonable than she really is.
But she's not obligated to address her critics! Look at all the people who have harassed her!
And I'm not obligated to respect her poorly conceived opinions. Interestingly, she actually acknowledges the people who harass her. Why do that, but not give her legitimate critics the time of day? The argument that her critics and her harassers are all the same doesn't hold the tiniest bit of water, because she has a lot more respect for her harassers than her critics. Sarkeesian is not obligated to engage with someone who she realizes could easily point out the flaws in her arguments, but the pattern with people like that is that deep down, they know that their arguments are so critically flawed that critique would destroy them rather than help them patch up holes.
But she's not vague about anything important!
What does Sarkeesian really think about hetero male sexual fantasies? One thing I see people repeating over and over is that all Sarkeesian wants is more representation for groups in games. But I also see people saying that she's saying representing hetero male sexual fantasies is wrong in various ways (sexist, exploitative, and/or immoral, etc). Sarkeesian's own fans can't agree on whether she just wants more representation for other people, or if she wants to eliminate representation for some. And yes, she's said at one point that it's not bad to like problematic things or whatever, but as people right here in this sub seem to believe, there's a difference between enjoying "problematic" things and creating them.
If Sarkeesian were truly a reasonable person, she could take a tiny little moment to clarify that there's nothing wrong with creating media that caters to the sexual fantasies of hetero males, but her unwillingness to do that makes me think that either a) she's one of those doublethinkers who do feel that it's wrong, or b) she's more interested in creating drama because drama=money than engaging in real discourse, or both.
Without Sarkeesian and her negativity, it's quite possible that there would be no gamergate. There are other people out there (like Extra Credits) who have managed to call for more diversity in gaming without all of the accusations of badness that are so strongly implied in Sarkeesian's videos.
But I don't see it! She's not implying anything!
Bullshit.
The fact is, this kind of negativity stirs up shit. SJW negativity stirs up shit. Heck, a lot of people think "cis" is a slur, because the first time they ever saw it, it was between the words "die" and "scum". That negativity has consequences, and the consequence is that you drive people away from being positive and inclusive and understanding. You talk about wanting a safe space? Bull fucking shit you want a safe space. If you wanted a safe space, you wouldn't be putting forth so much goddamn effort toward goading your opponents into lashing out at random people. You don't want a safe space, you want to feel validated, and fuck anyone on your own goddamn side who is actually affected by your shit. (Don't believe me? I'll dig up those McIntosh tweets where he publicly talks about how he's deliberately trolling GG and that it's even easier than he thought.)
Like it or not, GamerGate is your baby. It's the backlash against all of the negativity you jerks have been building up for the past several years. If you didn't have that pathological need for validation, you could discuss issues about representation of minorities in gaming without being assholes about it, and then maybe more people could be at the table and discuss this like adults.
Edit: For people criticizing me about using the term SJW, this is what the inside of the SJW box looks like. If you don't buy into our language and our methods, you must be the enemy of all liberals.
Both Sides
There are a lot of hypocrites in here on both sides of this thing. For most people in here, whether or not you believe it's okay for individuals to boycott someone due to their speech is dependent on what they're saying. You are only not a hypocrite if you believe that all of these things are true or all of these things are false.
My personal opinion on this stuff? It's all okay. Maybe you're just generally and consistently against using boycotts as a means of private censhorship, and that's also a valid and ideologically consistent view. But I see so much "well, it's bad when they do it, but since they did it, we can do it" bullshit that I really doubt anyone actually gives a goddamn about boycotts and free speech, and that instead people all just want to shut down who they want to shut down and will use any tactic they can to do it, then decry those exact same tactics when other people use them.
My feelings about this whole shitshow are kind of difficult to put into words, and I think this particular work of art expresses my thoughts better than I can:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eGJOqMHsDI
I'll stick around to reply to people's thoughts on this. Maybe I'll even come back some day, although frankly I hope I'm adult enough to resist the urge to poke at this train wreck further.
Oh yeah, the questions
Since we're trying to generate some discussion here, here are some direct prompts.

My stepdad, who knows little about bitcoin, said something completely awesome at thanksgiving dinner

I'm not sure if someone has said it before, but as I was going into my standard explanation of bitcoin, my stepdad, who is super conservative and knows little about bitcoin, chimed in with "The US dollar, or any currency, is backed by the full faith and credit of that country's government. Bitcoin is backed by the full faith and credit of the Internet." I said "whoa, have you been reading up on it or something?!" and he replied with "all I know is what you told me about it". For someone who tends to remain ignorant of anything outside of what Bill O Reilly or Rush Limbaugh has to say, it blew me back to hear him say something so elegant and precise!

Confessions of a Troll: My confession. My apology. I've been a paid troll all along. Bitcoin isn't so bad.

Ok bitcoin.. it's time I confess. For a while now, I've become somewhat of the "resident troll" on this subreddit. I would make it my life's mission to comment on every single post and be negative ever.single.time. I've made it as predictable as predictable can be. I come in, hurl abuses about "bitcoin fantasy land", cuss at people for being "fucking idiots" and "fucking kids" (well, sometimes I ask them if they're a "fucking kid" and then answer the question myself about them indeed being "a fucking kid"). One of my favorite lines is to shriek that anyone who posts in favor of bitcoin has "2 coins and is trying to get rich".
Another filthy habit of mine has been to shout, literally shout, about things "HAVING ALREADY BEEN FUCKING POSTED ALREADY!!!!!" Every chance I get, I haven't failed to scream that some bitcoin related news has been posted before. Often times I threaten to report it.
There have been a few times when cornered about why I hate bitcoin, I've mumbled that I don't hate bitcoin and "have plenty of bitcoins". I don't think anyone believes that though :(
I'm an angry, overweight child who never had the foresight or vision to actually ever acquire a single bitcoin (I can't afford it).. and seeing this ground breaking virtual currency take off at a rapid speed.. just.. well.. breaks my heart. I could never get ahold of any bitcoins. Nobody would sell me any. Everytime bitcoin starts adoption phase in a new country, the only thing I can think to do is scream in a sarcastic tone about how bitcoin "IS NOW EXPLOOODDDING IN THIS COUNTRY HUH!!?".
I managed to acquire -600 karma since I came here, and I'm well aware I'm considered entertainment for others. I'm sad, I'm pathetic, and I have an unhealthy obsession with "fucking kids". (pun intended).
But tonight I make my confession, and beg you all for forgiveness. The truth of the matter is, yes, I started out a lonely troll.. furiously hitting refresh on my browser in /bitcoin for any post that I could inject my brand of Rush Limbaugh-esque negative shouting directed at anything bitcoin. It was originally a lonewolf operation because of my burning jealousy for not being able to be apart of something that was changing the world. But then I devised a plan. I created a second troll account called "witcoins", and being the suave man of mystery I am, had this subreddit fooled. Grammar-shmrammar, I didn't think anyone would realize we were the same account.
But then one day, I was approached by an entity I shall not name, to be compensated for my 50+ hours a week I put in here spewing anti bitcoin ranting and shrieking. I stepped up my game. I stopped leaving my mom's basement, I started fueling up on twinkies, donuts, cheatos, redbull and porn.. and dedicated my entire life to working for my masters. They told me they would pay me for every obnoxious piece of fuckery I shat into this subreddit. It was going great.. until today.
Today I was called out for being a paid troll, and my world crumbled. I had a change of heart. I saw the light. I looked in the mirror, and despite my mordbidly obese, angry neo-nazi mug staring me right in the face (pimples and all).. I felt complelled to confess. I am a bitcoin troll. I apologize to the community for letting my raging jealousy of bitcoin control my life.
I am sorry. This is my confession. Please, forgive me. :(

RICH Venture Capitalistic in Silicon Valley Calls San-Fran Homeless "NAZIS",... you know the rich are afraid....

40 years ago Perkins was rock-star in VC San Jose, he was the goto man if you wanted to start a company and get rich,
Then along came the CIA, inQtel, and the CIA became the new VC, and then you had GOOGLE go super rich, and they started these private buses picking up rich kids,
It's not just the buses the CIA/NSA client companys GOOGLE, APPLE, ORACLE, ... have driven up rents and pretty much destroyed CASTRO and all the cools places in the BAYHAREA including SOHO.
Now the artists, and the home-less, and the musicians, pretty much anybody the doesn't suck the cock or suck the tit of the NSA spy machine, ... is protesting these buses, cuz its the most obvious thing.
So what does PERKINS do? He calls them NAZIS and destroying the buses is same-same as KRISTILNACHT ... HMM
Yes it places well on the WSJ, and on Rush Limbaugh, and it probably plays well here on ZH, but the fact is the musicians and artists are COOL and to all them NAZI is telling that the real NAZIS ( google, nsa, ... bitcoin ) have ran out of intellectual arguments.
It's only money now, and its big money verus the POOR, and for the RICH (PERKINS) to be calling the SF POOR the "NAZIS", it telling.
