I do agree the better idea is just to wear the triangle that corresponds to your group. I would be red (anarchist if the definition is rules without rulers) and I’m sure there are people in the other categories who are eschewing the jab, either for health or ethical reasons. That way, we take the “Russia Trump” canard away from the Jab Cult.
I think it would work.July 18, 2021 at 12:52 am #80035

2021 Will Be The Year of Malicious Automation
25 percent of the internet now comprises bad bots, malicious automated tools, and evil AI. Next year it will double, making half of the internet be saturated with malicious traffic.
The global economy is in full swing and e-commerce is now a necessity versus a commodity. The rapid adoption of digital commerce, backed by fully scalable cloud computing, has set the foundation. 5G, IoT, and edge computing will act as a catapult. Cyber-criminals have always been early adopters of the latest and greatest technologies – and using automation will amplify and multiply their efforts at mass scale.
Over 90 percent of cyber-attacks will involve some form of malicious automation by the end of the year. What will immediately follow is a period of rapid investment and adoption, primarily in using automation for cybersecurity.
Some examples of how malicious automation will be used include:
Content scraping malware to make attacks more efficient
AI-Supported CAPTCHA breaking; making it obsolete
Convincing social engineering attacks at scale; rendering gesture detection and biometric authentication useless
Intelligent targeting and evasion attack vectors

If I were Jewish, I probably would have worn the pink triangle superimposed over a point-side-up red triangle (you can take the boy out of [what passes for] the left, but you can’t always take the left out of the boy, after all). But I’m pretty sure I like pork sausage too much to convert to Judaism.July 18, 2021 at 1:31 am #80038V. ArnoldParticipant

OMG! Voluntarily wearing symbols of who one is, and their political persuasions, in public???
How bloody insane is that???? Sick, sick, sick…

I just looked at Google’s “new cases” graph for Missouri. What the Sam Freaking Hill happened on March 8 in that state???July 18, 2021 at 2:20 am #80040
It’s called turning the tables on your oppressors using a symbol or word. Not the first time it’s been done. In the 90s, I do remember the African American community using the N word with an -a on the end to create a positive connotation, though the “left” made that automatically racist when a white wannabe rapper used it.
So we use it as an “in your face” to the cultists? Just might work.July 18, 2021 at 2:28 am #80041
Thinking about it, scrap that. Maybe somebody should just print t-shirts with the Nuremburg Code on it.July 18, 2021 at 2:34 am #80042
UK news from the BMJ:
Covid-19: Vaccine centres operating at 30% capacity as young people stay away

In all seriousness, contrasting the Covid graphs for Missouri with that scare-piece in The Atlantic really has me wondering how often the hospitals in those pieces are carefully cherry-picked, or maybe even some of the articles are mostly fabrications.July 18, 2021 at 4:31 am #80044July 18, 2021 at 6:05 am #80045
Official stats for Missouri’s hospitalizations “confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19” compared to the number of hospital beds.
COVID-19 Patients in the Hospital
[confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19]
(as of 7/14/2021)
440 in the ICU
207 on ventilators
Hospital Capacity: The numbers above reflect only COVID-19 patients. They do not include other patients in the hospital. As of October, Missouri has over 22,000 hospital beds, including over 2,700 ICU beds. Hospitals have over 2,300 ventilators, and the state stockpile has an additional 240 ventilators.July 18, 2021 at 6:11 am #80046

Maxwell I am so pleased by your compliment!
Dark Matter, thanks for the list.
The problem with the Triangle is the symbolism is not clear, it has to be explained – most ppl only know yellow star for Jews. Plus the historical roots – hmm.. perhaps not the best..
Triangles in themselves don’t traditionally ‘mean’ anything – the shape was chosen, at the time, merely because it is simple, easy to produce, sew on, etc.
And then the color Red – is strongly associated with communism, leftists, etc.
As Dark said, many ppl probably feel more Black, or Blue, etc. So I suddenly! realised why the Rainbow colors for the LGTB++ ppl – there is no specific color, just all of them. That is actually clever…
So it is hard to choose a color, they have all been exploited so much. Color revolutions are running out of colors … though plant names were used too…
Yeah – there is a real need for some new symbol. Interesting question, problem.August 10, 2021 at 8:25 am #83125
