Skip to comments.I Must Pimp This Site: THE PEOPLE'S CUBE
Posted on 03/13/2006 1:23:13 AM PST by King Prout
I've never done a dedicated website-pimping post, so please bear with me if I fumble it.
There is simply no way to give an adequate description of The People's Cube.
- It is savagely anti-Leftist
- For those of us who grew up during the Cold War and have some knowlege of the hell of life behind the Iron Curtain, it is poignantly accurate in its satire
- The humor is simply brilliant (though it could be argued that mocking the communists, socialists, and leftists makes for rather easy jokes and parodies... all that is required is to be *slightly* more ludicrous than the reality)
- they are, without a doubt, the spiritual bretheren of the Protest Warriors:
Aside from that, all I can really do is encourage all FReepers to go there and take a look. The link above is to their main/home page (the "mother page" *grins*).
The link which follows is to a thread in their "Broom of Truth" forum, concerning the fact that Google, apparently by order of Red China, has purged The People's Cube from all of their search engines worldwide.
Google merges with ChiCom, bans People's Cube, changes name to "Gulagoogle"
I'd like to think that many FReepers would feel an urge to see what kind of support, moral and otherwise, they can give to such a staunchly anti-Leftist site.
and... just because it is too funny:
I believe it is possible that our fellow Marxists in the benevolent People's Republic of China and in the progressive and forward thinking Google may have blacklisted The People's Cube in error!
Yes, I know, Comrades: The State in its glorious wisdom does not err... unless it is fooled by the clever machinations of gluttonous capitalist lackeys of the oil barons and jingoist imperialist Republicans.
Comrades, I have awful news: The People's Cube has been gaining some notoriety on one of the most horrible internet dens of decadent bourgois backwardness: www.freerepublic.com!
Be strong, Comrades! It gets worse: Those bootlicking tools of class warfare have put on an increasingly vocal and convincing show of APPROVING of The People's Cube! Many of those deviants known as FReepers are passing out the URL to The People's Cube as if it were May Day candy! There is even one foul creature over there who has appropriated MY VERY NAME and is openly promoting The People's Cube with such lies as "most brilliantly caustic *anti-communist/socialist/leftist* satire I have ever seen!"
That Racist Nazi BASTARD!
Given these events, this imperialist ruse, how could our Siblings in Struggle in the PRC and Google know that this was but some foul ruse? OF COURSE they blacklisted The People's Cube. If you were so wise as to be in the Politburo, would you do otherwise?
Comrades, Kommissars, Workers all! I implore you, in the name of our glorious and inexorable march towards socialist utopia, stand as one! Blacklist Free Republic! Proscribe them! Let us show those smug class-enemies what it is to stir the wrath of Soviet might!
Sincerely and humbly, Comrade kingprout
(and, I must add... it is curiously amusing and simultaneously saddening to write like a well-indoctrinated cog in a soviet-style party/collective. just think: I can do it as a joke, but for decades millions had (have) to do it in deadly earnest.) There appears to be at least one other FReeper over there already (FReep-It). Come on by and take a gander. Sit down and swallow that coffee first, though! time to ping some folks...
here it is, and thanks for letting me pimp this site!
Shapka, this is ALL your fault, you know.
Please check it out, and please spread the word
I'm trying to come up with ways of FReeping Google over this...
I'm getting a cube and some shirts... I'm thinking... if even a few FReepers bought Cubes and mailed them to Google HQ, would that do anything?
or is that too subtle(stupid)?
Someone else posted an article from the People's Cube-mocking Google-earlier today.
I think 90% of the people replying to the thread didn't get the joke.
that must have been about "Google's Great Leap Forward"
got a link?
Red Square is rapidly joining the ranks of the head gods of my internet idolatry. dude can write a BLADE, man.
Hillary! either hates TPC... or shall hate them soon enough!
aww, I am dumb... I can't believe I didn't ping you too!
Look what I got when I put thepeoplescube.com in google!
bass turds, ain't they?
This is a news/activism post to me rather than your typical pimping a blog post. I think everyone needs reminded to go give them a hit every day..Google is despicable for doing this..COWARDS!
One World, One Thought, One Game...
When I asked permission to pimp the Cube, JimRob told me to pimp it here in Blogs, so here in Blogs did I pimp it :)
If he decides it is worthy of being moved to Activism, The Almighty Mods shall surely move it
