Semi-regular Linkage

First up with have Tom Kratman's story of a hypothetical [hopefully] politically correct military (part 1, part 2, and part 3). Here's how it starts (hint: it doesn't get any better, or any less funny):

Top, got a minute? Can you tell us about the company? I mean the real inside scoop.

"Oh, it's not so bad, I suppose. Could be worse anyway. I mean, I think maybe it could be worse. It used to be worse, actually, back when the XO - Lieutenant Dainty, our lipstick lesbian - was still pining over the fact that Staff Sergeant Levee wouldn't return her affections. God, she was the distilled and concentrated essence of PMS for months. But Levee wasn't attracted to lipstick lesbians, and was too much of a pro to cross the officer-enlisted divide."

Mike Cernovich on why so much effort is being put into censoring social media:

Why is there a huge effort from governments and social activists to censor social media? Why do I fight like hell on social media? Isn't social media a waste of time and a place to share cat pics?

Once upon a time if you wanted your story to get out, you had to call up your friends in the media. ... Today you don't need the media to get your message out. If you have something to say, you take your message directly to the people.

Ross Douthat's Ten Theses on Immigration in the New York Times:

1. The nation-state is real, and (thus far) irreplaceable.

2. Immigration is a perilous solution to demographic decline.

(There's eight more over there obviously, and arguments in favour of each of his theses)

Finally we have a petition of interest:

In order to show how safe current migration is to Europe, particularly regarding the cause of feminism (I reject wholeheartedly the notion that North African and Middle Eastern migrants are unsafe, and rapists), Emma Watson should spend a week's holiday in a Calais migrant camp, without guards of course, to show how safe, and how pro feminism these migrants are.
