Jeffrey Tambor Removed From Death of Stalin Poster, Which Is Something Stalin Definitely Would’ve Done
The Vulture (showbiz gossip)

Following his firing from Amazon’s Transparent, Jeffrey Tambor has been erased from the movie poster for The Death of Stalin. In a move not unlike what Stalin would’ve actually done, Tambor (who plays Deputy General Secretary Georgy Malenkov) has been disappeared from a new poster for the Armando Iannucci–directed comedy, replaced by Andrea Riseborough.

Was it a deliberate homage to stalinism? If so, pretty funny.

As an aside, The Death of Stalin is a fantastic film

It is at least arguable that the ultimate benefit of teaching human beings their true nature would be worth the sacrifice paid by a few unfortunates.


Wow.

But there's already plenty of evidence that evolution is true for those willing to examine the evidence. "Humanzees" are not going to convince a committed creationist any more than the abundant fossil evidence or other lines of evidence.

If you want to make an argument for humanzees then try justify it on its own grounds. And if you want to make an argument for animal rights or why everyone should stop eating meat then make that argument. This guy's argument seems to be that we need humanzees because that's what will convince everyone to stop eating Kentucky Fried Chicken.

What it boils down to is he absolutely wants human-chimp hybrids for reasons he will not acknowledge, and will say anything to get there.

Animal rights == anti-human. All else is insincere sophistry.

Perhaps to breed a race of perfect slaves to replace us uppity peasants. Or for sexual satisfaction. Or just a way to destroy humanity because that's what he thinks is good.

In this case the "war on us" is no metaphor.

The article they were discussing:

https://nautil.us/issue/58/self/its-tim ... mp-hybrids

The quoted remark in context:

On the other hand, it seems equally likely that faced with individuals who are clearly intermediate between human and ape, it will become painfully obvious that a rigid distinction between the two is no longer tenable. But what about those presumably unfortunate individuals thereby produced? Neither fish nor fowl, wouldn’t they find themselves intolerably unspecified and inchoate, doomed to a living hell of biological and social indeterminacy? This is possible, but it is at least arguable that the ultimate benefit of teaching human beings their true nature would be worth the sacrifice paid by a few unfortunates. It is also arguable, moreover, that such individuals might not be so unfortunate at all. For every chimphuman or humanzee frustrated by her inability to write a poem or program a computer, there could equally be one delighted by her ability to do so while swinging from a tree branch. And—more important—for any human being currently insistent upon his or her species’ specialness, to the ultimate detriment of literally millions of other individuals of millions of other species, such a development could well be a real mind expander and paradigm buster.


Meh. We already have enough Congressmen.

By the way, the new Planet of the Apes trilogy is quite good, imo. The original was OK in its own iconic way if you like Charlton Heston's hokey ham acting. The new ones are better movies though.

I think you're overstating. Even animal cruelty laws?

Such laws existed before the self so called "animal rights" movement.

By their own account "animal rights" == animals have the same rights as humans.

That doesn't have to be what it means for anyone else using the term.

There is this repeated idea that the looniest of a group gets to own the term. That's stupid, it's strawmanning.

When it's "animal rights" there is no less loony group. The movement IS the loonies.

OK maybe some useful idiots or something.

Unlike for example Communists.

It's an evil ideology, but I have known decent individuals.

Likewise Muslims. Or even Republicans.

But not "animal rights".

Nobody. Mostly that means you have to learn more about a person than just a label to know what they really think.

Sign Referencing Civil War Hero Is Sexual Harassment, Says Massachusetts Lawmaker
Reason

Here's a twist on the debate over public monuments to problematic figures like Confederate leaders: A Massachusetts state lawmaker wants to censor references to a man who scored Civil War era wins against the Confederacy. Her reasoning? That man's name is Joseph Hooker.

As we're all aware, General Hooker's last name became slang for "someone who has sex for money." Today, "hooker" is widely considered a slur by folks in the sex-work community.

...


Hmm "the sex-work community". They are a community and therefore a political constituency. :lmao:

They prefer to be called the "Sport Boink Community".

Just sayin'.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
