A BusinessWeek Cover We Firmly Support

Tyler Durden's picture




 

We promise to read BusinessWeek's cover story on the Viagra-fueled rise and subsequent droop of American Apparel's sleaze king, Dov Charney, just as soon as we are done admiring the cover.

Hey.  The dude made the margins expand massively because all his women's fashions used less and less material.  The great women's designer secret.    (Charge a million dollars to make them look like cheap whores....  One of the famous European designers actually said that.)

the khazars traffic slaves, drugs, children, pornography and they print money: all of which we pay for with interest. then (thanks david icke) they thrive off our misery. all we need do is turn our attention to something more meaningful. love, community and the creator.

Well said. Reflect on the entertainment industry which they control. Where movies once gave us a sense of adventure or romance/eroticism, it has all been replaced with gratuitous sex and violence. They are a low and base people that he world would be such a better place without.

lol, well i understand that and im not trying to sound like a prude.

But it is overloaded with sex from the controlled main stream media...our natural instinct does just fine on who we are attracted to and such...we dont need ads of soft milky tits everywhere we turn our heads.

.

Im poisoned too...those ads/pics of that soft skin gets me as well, but when your done blowing your load with a random and 10 seconds later you wonder, 'why the fuck did i just do that?' = that means something. And every guy knows what im talking about.

And when its really bad (very rare)...your completely 'over it' while blowing...

Maybe he read this? While many, if not all, ZH readers may think this is a great description of bankers, Paul was actually talking about all of humanity.

Taken from Romans 3:9-18)

 9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:
17 And the way of peace have they not known:
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

Now im a 40yr old man...and if you step back and realize how perverted and sexualized everything has become, its quite sick. I think the end goal is to normalize everything = what is bad is good, what is good is bad.

Not so fast.

"How perverted and sexualized everything has become" is all about making moar babies for moar debt slaves for moar "economic growth"

I recall reading about Norway or Sweden governments actually hosting porn movie showings so the young (white) couples would have babies.

Even Germany has said in a few moar generations their won't be any Germans due to low birth rates.

The U.S. birth rate has dropped a lot since 2008 which is why Obomba & Co. want the illegal immigration we're seeing now.

Of course all this will change and we will soon see a new "Victorian Era" when the economy collapses completely and we don't need moar babies.

BS. More porn, fewer babies. Porn is a drug that is pushed to numb the population and make them obedient.

Greetings from Sweden headbanger:)

I've been living in Scandinavia for over 30 years & never heard about free porn showings for couples so they will have kids. Whereas Swedish National Television /SVT did some kind of series of the film "Kärlekens Språk" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karlekens_sprak  with Q&A's after each program. If I remember correctly, it was around 2006 and they split the film up in maybe 3 parts. No big deal here in Sweden. The film didn't show f*cking, s*cking, positions....etc. Was mostly boring with some 'frontal nudity'.

Hopefully that helps refresh your memory. btw your avatar is great! Best regards X-

Truth. I grew up in LA and at one point had worked in the porn industry. I can tell you with 100% confidence that theres is heaps of Jewish/Israeli influence in the porn business. Most of the owners of production companies are Jewish/Israeli.

Jews don't just control Hollywood, they control porn as well. And before I get called out as an anti semite, let me say this:

Churning out Hollywood propaganda is one thing, but if you make a conscious decision to profit off of an industry that commodifies psychologically damaged human beings, then there is a seat in hell with your name on it.

As they say, if Hollywood wasn't there already the Jews would have invented it.

"Churning out Hollywood propaganda is one thing, but if you make a conscious decision to profit off of an industry that commodifies psychologically damaged human beings, then there is a seat in hell with your name on it. "

That would go for all porn directors, producers and consumers. Jewish or not.

Al Goldstein, the publisher of Screw, said "The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.” Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture and, as it penetrates to the very heart of the American mainstream (and is no doubt consumed by those very same WASPs), its subversive character becomes more charged."

Perhaps they have a better understanding of human nature than the rest of us. Stop buying what they are selling and they will have no power.

This applies to bankers and politicians as well. Quit enabling them and start enabling yourself (knowledge, independence, self-reliance).

Dov Zakheim, former Bush appointee as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. At that time he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. Actually, nearly three years earlier, Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10, 2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. That story was buried under 9-11’s rubble. The two sums disappeared on Zakheim’s watch.

It has a rather big factory in Downtown LA. It's full of Mexican seamstresses, and they seem to be happy to work there.

American Apparel has, reportedly, used ILLEGAL ALIENS in their manufacturing of the clothing yet brag it is MADE IN THE USA, well technically that is true but it is all by ILLEGAL LATINOS. He used the workers, allegedly, to be models for the apparel. As pointed out by other posters it is the USUAL SUSPECTS in the destruction of our great nation.
Like Soros and Bloomberg et al it reminds one of the fable of the Scorpion and the Frog:

The scorpion wants to cross a stream, but he can't swim. He sees a frog and asks the frog to carry him across on the frog's back. The frog says, "No, I don't trust you. I've heard about how treacherous scorpions are. I'm afraid that if I let you get on my back you'll sting me." The scorpion replies, "Why should I do that? That wouldn't be in my interest. If I sting you, then we'll both drown." So the frog agrees to let the scorpion get on his back and begins swimming across the stream. Halfway across, the scorpion stings the frog. As the frog is dying and beginning to sink, he asks, "Why did you do that? Now we'll both die." The scorpion answers, "I couldn't help myself. It is in my nature to sting."
