BEST TIMELINE EVER

mary beard @wmarybeard
I'm afraid I dont think that academic debate is about 'fights' or freaking out. It's about debate: one thing I hope I have learned in 40 yrs

Supreme Dark Lord‏ @voxday
 But you don't debate, Mary. You run crying to the media, whining that someone hit a poor wittle girl by criticizing your erroneous ideas.

mary beard‏ @wmarybeard
just for info, i never 'ran to the media' or even approached them. They have eyes for what goes on on Twitter! Now i'm back to writing

NassimNicholasTaleb‏@nntaleb
NOTHING academic in calling pple "misogynists" for dissenting, using Lewinski/Rowling & misrepresenting debate

mary beard‏ @wmarybeard  2h2 hours ago
oh come on. I never 'used' anyone; if they supported me, it was because they saw exactly what was going on. I dont recall using 'misogyny'.

NassimNicholasTaleb‏@nntaleb
This should refresh your memory. For a "historian", you keep being caught with misrepresentations.


NassimNicholasTaleb@nntaleb  1h1 hour ago
Mary Beard retweets n accusations of "misogyny" & articles in press & claims she never accused me of "misogyny" Historians shdn't Fabricate!

Supreme Dark Lord‏ @voxday
It could have been worse. Just wait until she writes the inevitable book about the incident.


NassimNicholasTaleb‏@nntaleb
Bad picture.  Use these.

The second edition of Mary Beard's heart-rending case for scholarship sans criticism.


I think the goatee and the confident leaning back really pulls the whole thing together, don't you? I can honestly say I never expected to have one of my intellectual heroes critiquing and polishing my meme magic. It's almost as astonishing as the time Umberto Eco invited me to join him on a visit to a monastery. So, to find out that Taleb is now reading SJWAL is just the icing on the cake.

Beard jukes and sidesteps, diverting attention to specific words or phrases in criticisms, rather than addressing the criticisms themselves.

Her claim to not have "run to the media" is false too. She published a post crying "NN Taleb was mean to me" in the Times Literary Supplement on August 3rd. On August 6th, the first "NN Taleb and Twitter trolls were mean to Mary Beard" articles started running in the Guardian.

Fredirik DeBoer retires from blogging and punditry to seek treatment for Mental Illness. It's too bad, as the avowed socialist did not hesitate to call out the Left and try to hold them to their own standards. It was quite fun to watch the ensuing feeding frenzies. Here's an example (http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-deboer-higher-ed-republican-20170724-story.html) of DeBoer as Cassandra - destined to see the future, but being ignored.

Blogger SirGroggy August 21, 2017 12:08 PM  

It turns out that even august notables come to respect the ways of the Dark Lord, not just sick depraved individuals such as I.

The whole thing, for me, boils down to this. Mary Beard was lending credence to black negroid Roman legionary family fathers being 'typical' in Roman Britain because in one single cited case, there was said to be a man who came from North Africa, she mentioned Algeria which in Roman times would have been the province of Numidia, Mauretania or Roman Africa Province at that time.

Mary Beard is supposed to be a respected historian yet she did not point out that North Africa was part of classical civilisation at that time, the people there were Punic (related to the Carthaginians which were initially a colony of the Phoenicians), and Hellenic and Latin and so on. Racially, Mediterranean / southern European. They were no sub-saharan African blacks in significant numbers, certainly not enough to be 'typical'. She was either being dishonest or negligent or ignorant or lazy or misleading.

Mary I don't care if you have studied for 40 years or for 40 millennia. I don't care if you have an IQ of over 9000 and you have a doctorate from every university on the planet, it's all a logical fallacy, an argument from authority and you are simply not in harmony with historical information in this instance. It is a failure in your mission as an educator and populariser of history.

If Mary was imbued with intellectual honesty and integrity she would admit she was wrong or at least she had portrayed misleading information, and instead of correcting herself she starts puffing herself up and declaring her credentials.

My thesis rests on the principle that the times choose the leaders (i.e., people who matter), not the other way around. I thus tend to discount the "pivotal importance/contribution" of any particular person to historically relevant changes.

That said, I begin to wonder if SJWAL might actually be a historically relevant publication, along the lines of Common Sense.

It may just be the combat manual for the Social Status battlefield created by Cultural Marxism.

It's astonishing that your hypocrisy doesn't cause a singularity.

You've been browbeating and suppressing with violent shrieks of "misogynist! Racist! Evil white cancer! White privilege!" for decades. You slur, you defame, you use swarms of shrieking violent people to shut down anyone whose opinion you dislike, you bring everything down to the level of "White People Bad! Brown People Angels! Men Bad! Women Angels!", you get people fired, you attack tenured professors ON YOUR OWN SIDE for not being sufficiently frenzied in some detail of your Maoist insanity...

Now after kicking and spitting and urinating and defecating in the faces of your opponents -- and countless millions of quiet, harmless people -- for years, someone dares to disagree with you and you come blubbering and squealing with slimy, garbage-souled hypocrisy, "Oh, I just want to REASON together, you mean meanies!" And then, of course, revealing the poison in your heart, you add "I'm reporting you to the KGB, so nyah nyah!"

"Reason together" to you means that everyone kowtows to you, walks on eggshells around you, endlessly submit and grovel and apologize, and basically agree with everything you say, or you will do your utmost to defame them, get them fired, dox them, and even get them physically attacked, or deplatformed, or ejected, or silenced in any way you can.

Book idea: Taleb and Vox collaborate on non fiction work examining the relative 'fragility' of left icons, media stars and major bloggers. Maybe? A scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being very fragile? With some humor involved.

The research for that could be endless fun.

Like 0 is a Golden Richard Simmons, and 100 is Golden Neo in the Matrix.

@48 You're making us Jews look bad, Arie. Wise up and go to shul. Then change your online name, then go back to Jerusalem.

@92. "Book idea: Taleb and Vox collaborate on non fiction work examining the relative 'fragility' of left icons, media stars and major bloggers. Maybe? A scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being very fragile?"

That sounds an awful lot like a target priority list. I'm all for it.

@Arie C

Perhaps you could try not being an asshole and lying, and otherwise behaving in uncivilized ways which make people think you are part of one of those uncivilized groups. Perhaps you could try being nice.

For the lolz... what's most funny about that Meme is it could apply to so many women I know. In fact you should put an open-source template out there or something.

Watching Boris Johnson take out Mary Beard in a debate (watch it on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k448JqQyj8) really tells you the quality of here intellectual ability, preparation or ability to think on her feet. Why is anyone surprised at her reactions now?

Sadly real historians like Barbara Tuchman, Margaret MacMillan or Doris Kearns Goodwin are also going to be tarred with the same brush, which is very unfortunate.

Sorry, LBJ's mistress, despite having built a career writing books lionizing LBJ, is not a good historian

"OT:"John McCain kills 10 more sailors bringing the total up to 144"
is one of the most popular things I have ever posted I didn't even include a picture"

Yeah, that's pretty solid. Nice work.

"Sorry, LBJ's mistress, despite having built a career writing books lionizing LBJ, is not a good historian"

In an odd coincidence, Barbara Tuchman was the niece of Henry Morgenthau Jr., notorious author of the genocidal Morgenthau Plan, and the granddaughter of Henry Morgenthau Sr., a generous contributor to the 1912 presidential campaign of that great American, Woodrow Wilson. I'm sure that has nothing to do with her value as an historian, though.

Doris Kearns Goodwin is a proven plagiarist multiple times now. "Her" books said just what sjw's would wish them to say. What luck! "Her" history books are the history equivalent of chick flicks.

BBKGB - "(named after his father/grandpa)"

His grandfather, whose "unexplained" (meaning covered up) failure to carry out his duties contributed to the loss of over 1,000 American lives at the Battle of Savo Island? He's probably disappointed the grandkid has such a short casualty list.

I can honestly say I never expected to have one of my intellectual heroes critiquing and polishing my meme magic. It's almost as astonishing as the time Umberto Eco invited me to join him on a visit to a monastery. So, to find out that Taleb is now reading SJWAL is just the icing on the cake.

Taleb demonstrated that you're horrible at curating rhetorical art.
