One week until the Minnesota State Fair, and one month since Justine Damond, the Australian yoga teacher, was shot dead by police in the streets of Minneapolis. Our last article explained some unique Minnesota phenomena, including being ground zero of the most terrifying and deadly moral panics in the history of mankind. 
The Trump and Turnbull Administrations have ignored my requests to stop the fair and prevent the next global panic, I feel an obligation to warn the world of what’s been happening here in MN in hopes we might stop another tragedy. While the 494/694 boundary is small (less than 30 miles across) there is something in the water here that starts worldwide witch hunts.
Mosquitos, Minnesota Nice, the quasi-political nature of the University of Minnesota, I can’t say for certain, what causes it, but I do know the phenomena is real. These moral panics have similarities, they all have a taboo or scandalous topic, that represents a perceived threat to women, children or vulnerable adults, they all result in popular demands for an expansion of the police state, and worst of all, they all spread worldwide.
The last wave of panics started shortly after the 1980 landslide victory of Republican Ronald Reagan. The election of Donald Trump seems to be causing the same kind of panic in the population. These panics spread like the 1918 flu.
The moral panics of the 80’s and 90’s have cost millions of lives worldwide and countless 100’s of millions of dollars. If the pattern is indeed repeating, we may be readying for a similar bumper crop.
If I’m wrong, perhaps my last article is merely comical; If I’m correct, we need to be on the lookout for things in the pre-Minnesota State Fair news cycle. For 10 days, nearly two million visitors from around the world make the center of the Twin Cities one of the most populated places in the world. This year, there will likely be demonstrations increasing stress, given the increase in high profile police shootings and current news cycle, people will be looking for a police state solution to stress they can’t openly or honestly discuss.
While this metro area is quite small, the top local stories over the last month since Damond was shot may just melt your brain. These stories are likely to mix and mingle with world and national news, pig’s shit, and food on a stick at the Minnesota State Fair to create and export a certain type of panic which will be headed to a town near you.
The mindhive is abuzz with news that the owner of a very popular, world class, award winning Thai restaurant in the inner-ring Minneapolis suburbs, has been keeping a black male sex slave, whom he purchased from the Dominican Republic, chained in the restaurant’s basement.
All across the Twin Cities, white women are mourning the loss of the delicious, fresh delights of one of their favorite ethnic restaurants. While the media is reporting very little on how the prices for such world class food were subsidized by the years of torture, bondage, and rape that this young black man (and others) endured, everyone else is talking about it in hushed tones.
Deray McKesson, who has deep roots in Minnesota, has not made any comment on the black man who was literally chained in an Asian restaurant’s basement sex dungeon for several years. BLM Minneapolis and BLM St. Paul have not yet made any statements regarding the actual enslavement of a black man within 6 miles of either city.
Lynching of a Black Man at Indian Mounds Park
Both BLM St. Paul and Minneapolis did a fine job spreading panic throughout the Twin Cities however by sharing a photo of what they reported to be the corpse of a black man, allegedly lynched by white supremacists.
The photo was shared on social media over 11,000 times in just a few hours, spreading terror and panic around the cities with the message “This so damn foul!! I’m so fed up with this s***! They’re still killing us and we still killing each other! #MakeGoViral.” The park where the body was found is an historic Native American burial ground, and famous for having the only view of both Twin Cities.
As it turns out, it was not a lynching, but the suicide of a 50 year old white man. Major news outlets shamed BLM for spreading this erroneous message, yet none mentioned the suicide epidemic amongst white males of that age group.
One web only outlet did briefly mention the MN health department’s note that half of the alarming increase in state suicide had occurred among men ages 25-34. They also offer the condescending advice that if you are suffering from depression, you should get help. In the state that was the conceptual home of the Duluth Model, they may as well just hand out rope and shotguns.
Many men’s advocates speculate that the Duluth Model is the number one cause of the current male suicide epidemic. No factor other than being male (80%) is a greater predictor of males committing suicide than exposure to the Duluth Model of Domestic Violence.
The Duluth Model combined with Borderline Personality Disorder may be one of the greatest killers of children in the U.S., maybe even the world.
Explosions at a Mosque and a Pre K-12 Private Christian School
The Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis exploded, killing two, and a mosque near the Mall of America was bombed. No suspects have been named, but Governor Dayton assures everyone that it is certainly an act of terrorism.
“If a bias motive is proven, this attack would represent another in a long list of hate incidents targeting Islamic institutions nationwide in recent months,” said Amir Malik, a local civil rights director. While no suspects have been named, most people in the 494/696 boundary suspect it was done by male right-wing white nationalists.
Skinheads, White Nationalists and Charlottesville
In the 1980’s, skinhead violence was an epidemic in the Twin Cities, with several graphic, high profile murders involving baseball bats, hammers, and the biting off of victims noses and ears. Some of these murders took place in walking distance from Indian Mounds Park in East St. Paul. Two rival skinhead gangs, the racists from the recently devastated working class town of South St. Paul, who drank a lot of beer and talked about national socialism, and the Minneapolis anti-racist terrorist group, the Baldies, who beat the shit out of people of all colors if they suspected them of being racists or racist sympathizers.
On the topic of terrible infections that start in Minneapolis and spread around the world… In the late 80’s, the Baldies formed Anti-Racist Action, which morphed into the first American incarnation of the European group known as Antifa, which stands for Anti-Fascist Action. Apparently, this type of violence helped form a groupthink so successful at creating an echochamber that they have likely infected your city too. Ours was made of middle class kids, your results may vary.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Antifa due to their involvement in the mayhem in Charlottesville this week. (Author’s note: The Programming Manager at the Minneapolis Television Network (MTN) is a skinhead who had very close ties to the Baldies. MTN is the previously mentioned public access station that illegally blocked the Anti-BLM content that could have saved Justine Damond’s life.)
Earlier this year, Linwood Kaine, son of 2016 Vice Presidential Candidate Tim Kaine, was arrested in St. Paul Minnesota for suspicion of 2nd-degree riot after allegedly throwing a smoke bomb into the State Capitol which struck a 61-year old woman.
Senator Tim Kaine is close personal friends with the Mayor of Charlottesville. Linwood has been treated like a classic senator’s son, likely due to his close Democratic ties. No one has declared throwing a bomb in the state capitol a terrorist act, not even Former U.S. Senator, now Minnesota Governor, Mark Dayton.
More Sex Slavery
Earlier this summer, 19 men were arrested as a part of a major sex trafficking ring. This was a part of multi-million dollar program for increased training and sex sting operations leading up to the Super Bowl which will be held at Death Star Stadium in February of 2018.
Who’s buying the sex? Middle class white men. (duh)
“Johns live all over — rural towns, suburbs and cities — and tend to be married, between 30 and 50 years old and from middle and upper socioeconomic backgrounds. They are mostly white, reflecting the state’s population. While some men of color and women also buy sex, they do so at much lower numbers” the report said.
Many of the studied men were court-ordered to attend and pay $750 for the “John School” hosted by the St. Paul nonprofit Breaking Free, which provides housing and services to adult victims at the expense of men caught in sting operations. The report states that 84 out of 103 men arrested for prostitution-related offenses didn’t use a public defender.
The data and tactics in this report are shared with law enforcement worldwide. Nationwide, adult men 24 and up, already at risk of suicide, can now look forward to greater police surveillance, targeted sting operations, and arrest and conviction quotas due to this report.
In addition to the widespread press, this apparent epidemic, is guaranteed to be a topic of conversation at the fair due to the exorbitant amount of public dollars being spent to put it at the forefront, including a public awareness campaign in Duluth, Minnesota, to “openly discourage men and boys from buying sex”, which began this month.
The Minneapolis Men’s Center has not issued a statement on the ethics of the John school, the biased study, the state crackdown, or the horrific tragedy of a black man being held captive in a Twin Cities food-sex dungeon. Nor have they made a statement about the high profile suicide in nearby Indian Mounds Park, though it seems like that might be a good piece for an outreach opportunity.
White Woman Commits Heinous Act
The morning news stations are abuzz with news that Jennifer Kline, former host of ShopNBC and former Mrs. Minnesota, was convicted in a fraud-scheme of buying clothes from an Edina, Minnesota mall, changing the tags, and then returning them. Shocking, I know.
This is just a brief description of the scandalous stories over the last few weeks in this tiny little metro area since Justine Damond was killed in a dark South Minneapolis alley.
These tasty topics will be top of mind as people go into the Fair, and these ideas will mix with national news stories, fear, and pig’s shit. Millions are going to get together, gossip, people watch, eat tons of shitty food, scream at the police, and look at butter sculptures in the 80 degree heat. Then, they’ll go home, get the kids off to school, and quickly login to spread moral panics around the world.
While it’s safe to say that if my theory is correct, the next moral panics likely to be exported by the Twin Cities Echo-Chamber of Commerce will be one of the following:
- Sex Trafficking/Prostitution
- White Nationalists/Bomb Threats
- Women Committing Department Store Fraud
It will likely be influenced by whatever the hell happens here in the next week. If there is any hope to stop the next moral panic, it is public awareness, It’s become clear even Trump and Turnbull are not capable of stopping the 2017 Minnesota State Fair.
The Good News
Another Minnesota-based moral panic, which I did not mention in my previous article about Minnesota generated worldwide moral panics, is one that might shed some hope.
In 1983, second wave feminists teamed up with “activists from South Minneapolis” and the Minneapolis City Council to pass the Dworkin-MacKinnon Antipornography Civil Rights Ordinance. Ms. Dworkin taught at the University of Minnesota for one semester that year and found Minneapolis a fertile ground to put her theories into practice.
Minneapolis was the first of several cities in the U.S. and Canada to pass the ordinance, destroying several independent bookstores. It was eventually overturned by the U.S. and Canadian Supreme Courts as unconstitutional, but not before many small businesses were ruined. Neither of the authors or the activists were ever held accountable for their actions and they lived free to inspire a whole new generation of Minnesota activists.
You likely saw some of them in Charlottesville last weekend.
Please help us, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, you’re our only hope.
