Sunday in Der News: 4/28/19

In der news. In all cases, emphasis added.

All the main characters have blue eyes…Michael Ironside plays the teacher/lieutenant Jean Rasczak...
NAME: Michael Ironside
DATE OF BIRTH: 12 Feb 1950 Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
HAIR COLOUR: BROWN
EYE COLOUR: BROWN
STARSIGN: Aquarius
Michael Ironside eye color Dark brown
At the very last scene of that, there’s a scene in SCANNERS where I’m set on fire and my head comes up and those scleras they put on your eyes, they had scratched all my corneas. So the contact lenses they had made for me to change my eye color didn't fit properly because my eyes had been scratched. Dick Smith happened to have with him Dustin Hoffman’s eyes from LITTLE BIG MAN and they were actually oversized, and you wouldn't normally do this because they have to be fitted, but when you see me come out from under that coat at the end of SCANNER, those blue eyes of mine are Dustin Hoffman’s from LITTLE BIG MAN.
Apparently, Hoffman used colored contact lenses in Little Big Man, and that film image was used for Ironside's eyes in Scanners because of Ironside's scratched corneas.

I know Unz has an agenda, but, please, do better.

I can imagine that some people will question the importance of this. “Who cares?” they will declare.  No doubt, I will be accused of pedantic nitpicking. However, there is a larger issue here than just the eye color of Michael Ironside. One defining characteristic of Der Movement is people making self-assured public pronouncements that are not only wrong, but very easily demonstrated to be wrong with about thirty seconds of casual googling.  We have Duchesne, whose main focus is the uniqueness of Western civilization, completely misrepresenting the Neolithic farmer ancestry in Europeans. We have Mangan and his smug bombastic comments about most Italian-Americans being of North Italian descent. We have Alt Righters stating “Arthur Kemp was right” concerning Ancient Egyptian genetics that demonstrate precisely the opposite. What we see is carelessness, sloppiness, and a lack of attention to detail that is all very disconcerting, and that is, in my opinion, directly associated with the endless failures of “leadership” and all of the infiltrations and other lapses in judgment.  

Imagine you were reading the resume or CV of someone applying to you for employment, and you observe that their submission is full of spelling, grammar, and formatting errors. Would you hire them?  It is the same principle – can you trust people in positions of authority who make mistakes that could have been avoided with minimal effort, with minimal care, with minimal attention to detail?

We'll wait and see what the facts are, but likely this will be used an another excuse for censorship.  I really wish these numbnuts would stop shooting up places of worship. It's not advancing any sort of "cause," my friends.  Just stop.

The NRA is not part of the "movement," but it is part of the broader "Right" even though they claim to also represent "pro-gun liberals" and other such rare creatures.

Ollie North!   And now he’s out at the NRA.
