By far, the best part of this video is the fat Mexican boy running and saying “oh my God, I can’t believe I had to record that.”
You famous now, kid. Your TikTok blowing up.
Five [six now] people have been killed and 16 more wounded in a shooting at an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois, the local media reported on Monday, citing authorities.
The shooting took place about 10 minutes after the parade began at 10am local time in the Chicago suburb. Police urged people to disperse and were seen patrolling the area with rifles in search of the shooter.
A video has surfaced online showing people running in panic as they hear shots being fired during the celebrations.
Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering tweeted that the town’s Fourth Fest had been canceled and asked residents to avoid the downtown area.
Highland Park Police are responding to an incident in downtown Highland Park. Fourth Fest has been canceled. Please avoid downtown Highland Park. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Sources cited in local media claimed the shooter may have been firing from atop a high building.
Several neighboring communities, including Deerfield, Evanston, and Skokie, have canceled their Fourth of July events “out of an abundance of caution.”
Illinois congressman Brad Schneider, a Democrat, tweeted that he had been at the start of the parade route when the shooting broke out.
“Hearing of loss of life and others injured,” he said in a tweet.
Quick, quick – start dancing on their graves!
Hearing of loss of life and others injured. My condolences to the family and loved ones; my prayers for the injured and for my community; and my commitment to do everything I can to make our children, our towns, our nation safer. Enough is enough!

I mean, they obviously haven’t been buried yet, so start dancing on their warm bodies!
It wasn’t a black! It was some weirdo anti-social white guy on Prozac!
Aspiring SoundCloud rapper!
It’s corpse dance time, Democrats! Get on top of these bodies and get your groove on!
Do the TikTok gun control dance – NOW.
Joe – hey Joe! Buddy! Where are you???
Jill and I are shocked by the senseless gun violence that has yet again brought grief to an American community this Independence Day. As always, we are grateful for the first responders and law enforcement on the scene.
I will not give up fighting the epidemic of gun violence.

Oh, thank God.
The parade mass shooting was on Monday.
Seven people had been shot to death over the weekend, which is a pretty tame July 4th weekend in Chicago.
But no one cares about that.
Black people killing each other are literally “statistics” like they whine.
I will never forget this event from the other day when there was a mass shooting in Denmark and Lauren Boebert said “see, mass shootings happen in countries with gun control” and one of those shitlib accounts that you see everywhere and you don’t know who they are – “Kyle” – posted the gun murder statistics.

He posted it as if those gun murder statistics are a result of mass shootings! Then he accused her of “lying” and implied there should be “consequences”! This is what they do! They don’t pay any attention at all to the ongoing black-on-black crime fiasco, but then they just slide those numbers in when they start trying to take away white people’s AR-15s.
It’s like if you ignored a girl at a party all night long when she was trying to talk to you and doing twerk dances in front of you, and then when she passed out drunk you just slid your dick in. No wait – that’s not really a great analogy. Whatever. You get the point, we don’t really need a clever analogy here.
The point is, mass shootings are very rare, and even if they happened every day in a country of 350 million people, they would still not rank in the top 25 causes of death. It’s literally a non-issue.
I haven’t run the numbers, but I think probably if you did a per capita analysis, you’re more likely to die from a random stranger killing in many places in Europe than in America. Someone should get on running those numbers.
In particular, I’m thinking about France. If you consider the number of mass casualty events France has had in the last decade, compare it to America, then consider that France is less than a quarter of the size of America, I think you’d have more dead in France.
Oh yeah – let’s not forget that a truck ramming in France killed more people than the biggest mass shooting in American history. More than 30% more.
I can’t really talk about gun control anymore, guys.
It’s just too stupid.
It feels like if I was Theodore Dostoyevsky, and I was banned from writing my novels, and was instead forced to get drunk every day and sing the “ABC” song to preschoolers.
As I’ve said before, the Republican response is worse than the Democrat response in a lot of ways. Ted Cruz is the “anti-gun control guy” and he’s calling for an expansion of NICS (which IS a national gun registry database – do not let them keep saying it isn’t!). Many Republicans, such as Eye Patch McCain, also support red flag laws, which are so insane you can’t even process it in your brain that it’s real. In several different ways, red flag laws are more sickening than door-to-door gun confiscation by the National Guard. They are definitely more Orwellian.
Well, there is one Republican who will say the obvious. We pray to Jesus he wins.
He is going to win.
The Jews are so scared they’re rolling out a retro villain.
When he wins it will be like in that Eminem song when he says “they blame it on Marilyn, but where was the parents at?” but I’ll be like “they blame it Anglin but where were the Democrats?”
Speaking of retro, why would I even think of that reference?
Why is this website now “glum millennial nostalgia daily”?
That’s my response to the boredom of these current plot lines? To retreat into 90s nostalgia, like I’m psychologically curling up into the fetal position?
We’re going to have to change that – and quickly.
But… maybe… we need to analyze this nostalgia a bit more? Literally everything is nostalgia. They just made another Ghostbusters movie, did you know that? Star Trek, Star Wars, everything is just nostalgia – a lot of it being sold to people not old enough to remember what they are being nostalgic for. Stranger Things is primarily made for millennials, and even the oldest millennials are too young to have actual memories of those memes.
This is an end of empire thing, where everyone knows there is no future, so the only thing they can do is look at the past. Compare this to the 1970s, when science fiction was a lot more popular than cowboy fiction.
When I was growing up in the 1990s, all of the music was commenting on this idea of fame, and how everyone would eventually be famous. You can give me shit for it, but I think that Hole album that Billy Corgan wrote is very good. It was better than the one Kurt Cobain wrote for her.
“Celebrity Skin” is literally “OnlyFans: the song.” (Lyrics)
Marilyn Manson and Eminem wrote about this totally nihilistic concept of everyone wanting to be a celebrity, and that happened with the internet thing. Even that commentary was a rehash of Andy Worhol saying “in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”
Commentary on post-industrial society is not difficult. It wasn’t difficult in the 1960s or the 1990s. The outcome of over-abundance and consumerism was never hard to predict. Humans are animals and they need suffering and death to have meaning in their lives.
Fight Club was the apotheosis of this critique in 1999, and then there wasn’t really anything else to say about it or do about it, you just kind of had to sit back and watch it happen.
Speaking of Cobain and Corgan, aside from the overarching commentary on fame, in the 1990s there was just this sense of “everything is shit and we’re all headed into hell at breakneck pace.” Radiohead was an autistic incel band.
I still haven’t built up the nerve to watch “Crimes of the Future,” but I downloaded it and skimmed some of it and I feel like this is going to be something where it’s like, people in the future analyzing the collapse of civilization say “this is the last movie that ever tried to say something about something – the rest was just cartoon explosions and children’s fight scenes.”
Anyway, I hate to tell you this again, but I told you this whole coronavirus hoax reality collapse was going to lead to all kinds of weird events, including mass shootings.
Of all of the 1920s right-wing stuff I’ve read, the one meme that really means the most to me is Mussolini (and others) constantly saying that they were pro-war in principle because struggle and suffering is the meaning of life.
From Mussolini’s manifesto:
Fascism does not, generally speaking, believe in the possibility or utility of perpetual peace. It therefore discards pacifism as a cloak for cowardly supine renunciation in contradistinction to self-sacrifice. War alone keys up all human energies to their maximum tension and sets the seal of nobility on those peoples who have the courage to face it. All other tests are substitutes which never place a man face to face with himself before the alternative of life or death.
When I read this, I realized that the first instinct when told anything by the Jews should be to figure out the diametric opposite position, and take that position and hold it – not for jerk-off Hegelian purpose, but simply because, as Jesus told us: everything they say is a lie.
The fascist position on war is the perfect example of total rejection of basic premises, because it is actually a rejection of the entirety of the most important dialectic of the interwar period, which was “how do we achieve peace by finding a balance between nationalism and internationalism?” Saying “we don’t want peace at all, actually” breaks the dialectic. You can’t reach a coherent synthesis between “war and peace.”
We can argue about whether or not war is actually in fact a natural good, but I don’t think it’s arguable that any time you get caught in any kind of thesis-antithesis situation, you are being kiked. That’s why Hegel is pointed to as the killer of philosophy even more so than Nietzsche: in any moral disagreement – and everything is a moral disagreement now – there is only one possible right answer, and the answer is absolute and can’t be compromised on.
With this gun violence thing, it’s “what are we going to do about mass shootings???” and the Democrats say “ban guns” and Republicans say “more background checks,” “turn the entire country into a prison,” and, increasingly, “red flag laws.”
If someone asks me what to do about mass shootings, I give them two options:
- Duck and cover
- Shoot back
The entire concept of a moral dialectic is nihilistic and satanic, and embracing this has led to spiritual bankruptcy. It’s all only possible because of material abundance, and I don’t really know what you’re supposed to do about that. Is it inevitable?
That’s sort of a divine mystery.
We blame the Jews, and we should blame the Jews, but if the Jews didn’t exist, would industrial society have to invent them? Can human beings exist as end of history happiness machines, or when put in this state, do they necessarily disconnect from reality, and become monstrous mutants who can’t think of anything better to do than shoot up the family holiday parade?
Remember the Simpsons episode when Lisa got a crush on Nelson, and she went to his house and he had a poster on his wall that read “Nuke the Whales” and she asked him about it and he shrugged and said “I dunno – gotta nuke something”?
That’s what this face-tatted retard who shot up the July 4 parade was thinking – “I dunno – gotta shoot up something.”
It’s not much different than asking Napoleon why he was invading Russia – which is really not that much different than asking a dog why he is chasing a car.
And the people were no different. When the French were told to march into Russia in the winter, no one revolted. No one was like “wait, what? Why?”
Instead they were like, “hello? Based department? I want to register another 5 star review of Napoleon.”
Over-socialization, over-domestication – it has peaked. The government telling you you have to stay in your house and wear an actual dog-muzzle thing on your face was peak domestication. When the dopamine faucet gets turned off, people are going to go feral, and that’s when humans change from plastic pleasure machines back into flesh and blood animals. As the chaos emerges quicker and quicker now, you see them pumping up the dopamine – “more porn, more pills, legalize mainlining in the street, do a double season of Stranger Things!”
But the computer simulations don’t work. None of these people in power have any idea what is going to happen when you put humans through this kind of soul-grinder. But I do. It’s going to end like every other Tower of Babel – fire and blood.
Probably, retreating into nostalgia happy time is the most harmless thing any of us can do to hold our psyches together during this time of such a heavy, ugly transformation back into transcendence.
