We've taken your feedback from the poll and are going to implement a new ruleset for /n/. As always, our ability to moderate is directly linked to you reporting posts you see breaking the rules. We may be modifying this ruleset further in the future as we try to tune /n/ into a place that allows the maximum amount of discussion and causes the minimal amount of trouble. If you have questions or comments, find us in irc (rizon.net #/k/) or post a thread in /sug/


If you find yourself prone to fits of rage, are susceptible to trolls, cannot deal with dissension, ignorance, stupidity, or other such afflictions of the internet, I advise you not to scroll down, and to instead visit one of our other lovely boards. By scrolling down you are taking your mental health into your own hands, and the staff takes no responsibility for your inevitable aneurism. You've been duly warned, enjoy your News.

Board Specific Rules for /n/:

1. Thread titles must be nonbiased and a succinct representation of what is in the article. Threads with titles that don't meet this criteria will be deleted. A link to the article is required where possible.

2. Personal Attacks are now banworthy, it is fine to disagree with the content of a post, but ad homs and tripfights will now be met with bans and post deletions, regardless of the rest of the content of the post. So watch yourselves.

3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.

  ConcernedCitizen is drafting the official changes, but for now to limit reports I would like to outline a slight rule change:

/n/ is no longer limited to national/international news.

Anything traditionally newsworthy that impacts or potentially impacts people on the international, national, or regional level or is exceptional on the local level can have its own thread.

For local stories with no real impact - we will be crafting a Flawda thread to contain them.

Here is some food for thought:


All other rules remain in effect until further notice.
>> No. 101062 ID: 1fb1a6
Bump to be on top of the Flawda thread.

Threads that dissolve into accusations of schilling and tripfighting will be locked. Don't do it in the flawda thread either or you'll be banned.

On today's edition of TBIguy's Emporium of the Other, we find out that a Philosophy Masters student was allowed to blog on South Africa's edition of the Huffington Post. And, boy, did she write a doozy!

Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?

>Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities.

>If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.

>At the same time, a denial of the franchise to white men, could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners. After all, white men have used the imposition of Western legal systems around the world to reinforce modern capitalism. A period of twenty years without white men in the world's parliaments and voting booths will allow legislation to be passed which could see the world's wealth far more equitably shared. The violence of white male wealth and income inequality will be a thing of the past.

The Editor-in-Chief of HuffPost South Africa evidently feels similarly.

alt-white weenies get caught posting FAKE NEWS yet again.
>Earlier this week, the gullible Huffington Post fell victim to a hoax article calling for white men to be stripped of their voting rights. The site became the subject of widespread derision and condemnation after HuffPost editors stood up to defend the article’s content.

>But as was later revealed, the author submitted the piece to Huffington Post South Africa as a hoax, intending to prove a point about the outlet’s radical leftist stance. He did so under a fake persona masquerading as a feminist activist named “Shelly Garland.” He has since lost his job after being outed by the site.

>Following its publication and subsequent retraction, the HuffPost identified the author behind the “Shelly Garland” persona as Marius Roodt, a researcher at South Africa’s Centre for Development and Enterprise. According to the site, the email address Roodt used to submit the piece was traced back to him. The site claims that his identity was further “confirmed with facial recognition technology,” as he digitally altered a picture of himself to look like a woman.

>Roodt admitted his role in the hoax when confronted by HuffPost reporters and was forced to submit his resignation from his job at the CDE (the resignation was accepted). The organization stated: “This kind of activity contradicts everything we stand for, is completely contrary to CDE’s media policy and our ethos as an organization.”

>The hoaxer apologized for his actions. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean for it to go where it did, there was no intention to go after Verashni (Pillay, HuffPost South Africa’s editor-in-chief),” he said.

>Roodt told the publication that he sought to prove a point about the lack of fact-checking in South African journalism. “I thought, would it work? And it worked. In hindsight I wouldn’t have done it, I didn’t think it would get this big,” he said.

>In contact with another website, Roodt compared his hoax to the Sokal Affair, a hoax perpetrated by physics professor Alan Sokal, who submitted a nonsense article to a postmodern cultural studies journal to test their intellectual rigor (they failed).

Swedish women feel threatened. 25% of women who are at least 16-years old are afraid to go outside, so they stay inside.

There was similar research done in the year 2012 and back then, 17% of Swedish women were afraid.

Research shows that 3% of 16+ year old Swedish women have been the target of sexual violence in last 12 months. These are only the cases that have been reported by the department of crime statistics.

Two snowniggers arrested for planning false flag attack.

>The 28-year-old lieutenant, whose name wasn't released, faces charges of preparing an act of violence, said Frankfurt prosecutor's spokeswoman Nadja Niesen.

>The officer, who was "of German background" and stationed in France, allegedly stashed a loaded pistol in a bathroom at the Vienna airport that was discovered, leading Austrian authorities to take him into temporary custody when he went to retrieve it in February, Niesen said.

>Though under investigation in Austria, authorities there did not keep him in custody and he was arrested in southern Germany on Wednesday.

>A 24-year-old student from the soldier's hometown of Offenbach was also arrested.

>"We know from various voice recordings that both had anti-foreigner views," Niesen said.

>The officer had registered as a Syrian refugee in the state of Hesse at the end of 2015 and had been living "sporadically" at a home for asylum seekers since January 2016. Though he was officially stationed with the Bundeswehr in France, authorities say he wasn't required to be present at all times.

Type 001A leaves it's dock at Dalian, commissioning expected in 2020. Effectively it's a improved Kuznetsov and will be followed by the flatdeck Type 002 which was laid down last year.

>China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier slipped into the sea for the first time on Wednesday, after days of publicity celebrating the impending launch as a milestone in President Xi Jinping’s drive to extend China’s military reach far beyond its shores.

>Senior military and government officials watched as a champagne bottle was smashed on the bow and as the 1,033-foot gray hull of the carrier eased into the water at Dalian, a northeastern port, Chinese military media reported. The ship, festooned with red national flags and banners, then stopped next to the dock.

>It is far from ready for operations, but the launch “signified a major stage of progress of our country’s indigenous design and construction of aircraft carriers,” a People’s Liberation Army news bulletin said. It said the carrier would undergo more testing and fitting of equipment before trials in the water.

>The first news reports did not give the ship’s name, though previous reports have said it would probably be called the Shandong, after the eastern Chinese coastal province.

>not telling BAE to build the carrier with a ramp but design it so the carrier can be converted to CATOBAR in the future, and BAE says yes but then doesn't do it and now it would cost more than a new carrier to convert it, and you'll never find out if it was incompetence or actual fraud because procurement is a state secret, and you can't afford to actually buy enough F-35s for both carriers so you have to beg the USMC to do joint deployments

>A Russian naval reconnaissance warship has collided with a Togo-flagged boat near Turkey’s Black Sea coast, prompting an evacuation. There were no reports of casualties on either ship, but the Russian boat sank.

>A Turkish coastal safety official told Reuters that 78 crew members had been evacuated from the Russian ship.

>Russia’s defence ministry said its vessel, the Liman, had a hole as a result of the incident. The ministry told the Interfax news agency there were no casualties among the ship’s crew, who were “fighting to keep the boat in the water”.

>However, the Turkish coastguard later reported the boat had sunk, around three hours after the crash.

>The shipping agent GAC said the Liman and the other vessel, which it identified as Youzarsif H, collided in fog and low visibility. The Togo-flagged boat is believed to have been carrying livestock. All its crew were also unhurt.

>The USS Carl Vinson, 1,100 feet long, has a displacement of 97,000 tons and sails with two nuclear reactors and about 60 aircraft. It’s escorted by a guided-missile cruiser and two destroyers.

>So how did President Trump lose it?

>In an interview with Fox Business taped on April 11, Trump confirmed a dramatic escalation in the nuclear standoff with North Korea, saying he was redirecting Navy ships to the area. “We are sending an armada — very powerful,” Trump said.

>Tough talk — except the Vinson strike group was not heading toward North Korea. It was continuing previously scheduled exercises with Australian forces in the Indian Ocean. Four days after Trump spoke of his Korea armada, a military trade publication noticed that photos released by the Navy showed the carrier off Indonesia — 3,500 miles from the Korean Peninsula — and apparently heading the other way.

>Was the Vinson looking for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? Had Percy Jackson lured it into the Sea of Monsters, from which it would emerge somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle with Amelia Earhart, Grand Duchess Anastasia and Jimmy Hoffa?

>There has been much speculation about Trump’s nonsense talk about his “armada.” Administration officials suggested a miscommunication between the Pentagon and the White House. Others suspected deliberate psy-ops against North Korea and China.

Lease: Raiders Wouldn't Pay Rent At Tax-Funded Vegas Stadium

>LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders wouldn't pay rent at a proposed tax-funded stadium they want to call home in Las Vegas under the most recent version of a lease agreement unveiled Thursday during a meeting of the public entity overseeing plans for the $1.9 billion project.

>The stadium authority board justified the lack of rent for the Raiders with the investment that the team is making on the 65,000-seat domed stadium to which guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase.

>"It's based on the fact that the Raiders are going to be investing up to $1.15 billion and certainly taking the risk for any overruns," board chairman Steve Hill said after the meeting. "So, in order to make that agreement make financial sense, the revenue from the stadium needed to flow to those investors."

  So basically things are reaching the boiling point. Maduro has dropped the pretense of pretending to not be a dictator and attempted to suspend the National Assembly (basically their Parliament/Congress), two weeks ago he almost got lynched during a event where the crowd attempted to storm the stage. Protests have been intensifying, with several people being killed over the past few days and the colectivos (kinda like Basij but a militia) and opposition groups have been fighting in the streets. And now there have been gun battles in Caracas. (Also it just turned out that the Venezuelan state oil company donated $500k to Trump's inauguration.)

>Protesters demanding elections and a return to democratic rule jammed the streets of Caracas and other Venezuelan cities on Wednesday. National Guard troops and government-aligned militias beat crowds back with tear gas, rubber bullets and other weapons, and at least three people were killed, according to human rights groups and news reports.

>President Nicolás Maduro defied international calls, including a plea from the American State Department, to allow peaceful assemblies and ordered his forces into the streets. Some demonstrators, wearing masks to protect themselves from tear gas, fought back with firebombs.

>Still, despite the deaths in recent protests, now numbering seven, Wednesday’s rallies attracted thousands of people, the latest in a string of demonstrations against the increasingly autocratic rule of Mr. Maduro. Labeled by organizers “the mother of all protests,” it showed that a sustained movement in the streets against Mr. Maduro may now be forming.

Anybody else following the custody case? It's been pretty hilarious.

>Jones said he sometimes smokes marijuana — nearly yearly — “to monitor its strength, which is how law enforcement does it.” He then added that he tested it because he believes it is now too strong — a development he blamed on billionaire and political donor George Soros, whom he claimed in court has “brain damaged a lot of people.”

Also his defense is that he's fake news:
>At a recent pretrial hearing, attorney Randall Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in “Batman.”

>“He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said of Jones. “He is a performance artist.”

>According to the attorney for Kelly Jones, ex-wife of the infamous radio host, Alex Jones said he couldn't remember "basic facts" about his children during a deposition because "he had a big bowl of chili for lunch."

Speaking of religious police, Georgia Man harasses Muslims... with a twist!
>Abdullah Rashid, 22, a Georgia native who moved to Cedar-Riverside last year, has been making the rounds in the Somali-dominated neighborhood, telling people not to drink, use drugs or interact with the opposite sex. If he sees Muslim women he believes are dressed inappropriately, he approaches them and suggests they should wear a jilbab, a long, flowing garment. And he says he's recruiting others to join the effort.

>But local Muslim leaders are sounding the alarm. They are working to stop Rashid's group, General Presidency of the Religious Affairs and Welfare of the Ummah, and have notified Minneapolis police, who say he's being banned from a Cedar-Riverside property. Some say the group is preying on vulnerable young Muslims in a community that has dealt with national scrutiny around radicalization and terrorism.

>"What he's doing is wrong and doesn't reflect the community at all," said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

>Minneapolis police received reports in February from concerned residents who saw Rashid in a dark green uniform that said "Muslim Defense Force" and "Religious Police" and had two flags associated with ISIS and other terrorist groups.

>"We've had conversations with community members that live over there," said Officer Corey Schmidt, a police spokesman. "Sometimes it takes a little bit of time to deal with it, but it's something we've been monitoring."

>Jeff Van Nest, an FBI spokesman for Minneapolis, declined to comment.
