  • HuffPo Article Claims Restroom Signs "Sexist" because Women Do Not Wear Pants in Them

    The Social Memo ^ | 6/29/15 | Aurelius
    The Huffington Post is now claiming that the generic men and women on restroom signs are sexist, saying that women's restroom symbols are not wearing pants. These and other complaints were compiled in an article published last week titled, "A Badass Feminist Coloring Book For The Powerful Ladies In Your Life." The article is literally just uncolored pictures of women, some of which have quotes and complaints about life in America. One of the quotes actually complained about this: The quote and picture accompanying the Huffington Post's complaint reads, "We live in a world that is so sexist that women...

    Backers of the Affordable Care Act were treated to twin delights on Thursday: First, the law was upheld, so nobody will be kicked off their insurance by the Supreme Court. And second, the dissent was written by Justice Antonin Scalia who, when angry (which is always), has a penchant for literary drama. "Words no longer have meaning," Scalia wrote in the dissent he read from the bench. They might not, but that didn't stop Scalia from piling them on top of each other in an angry heap. Here are some of the choicest of his meaningless words. [Snip] "Today's interpretation...
  • Community Organizer to Black Youth: Avoid Forgiveness, Do Not ‘Police Your Rage’

    Breitbart Texas ^ | June 22, 2015 | Lee Stranahan
    In the wake of the gruesome massacre of nine black churchgoers by an angry racist white gunman in Charleston, South Carolina, comes an article that encourages black youth to be angry, racist, uninformed, unforgiving, intentionally opaque, and to explicitly exclude and ignore “white folks” in a direct call for unrest and anarchy. The most shocking part is that the call for uncivilized radical action comes not from some obscure underground revolutionary manifesto, but from an author with a conventional liberal resume, including a writing gig at the Huffington Post and a previous executive position with an ostensibly positive program working...
  • Jurassic World Called "Racist" Over Dinosaur Name

    The Social Memo ^ | 6/21/15 | Aurelius
    Some viewers of Jurassic World are taking offense to the film, calling one of the lines in the movie "racist." Specifically, the abbreviation of the dinosaur Pachycephalosaurus. During the course of the film, the Pachycephalosaurus escape from their enclosures, leading one character to shout, "The Pachys are out of containment!" This has led news outlets and Twitter users to call the film "racist." A British comedian originally brought attention to the line, offering a tongue-in-cheek rant against the dinosaur's name. However, people did not get the joke, and are actually calling the film racist. The Independent called the line "very...

    Pope Francis weighing in on climate change in his latest encyclical is having an effect on the race for the GOP nomination, and candidate Jeb Bush, the Huffington Post is reporting today. Jeb Bush appears now to believe in human-caused climate change, and is embracing a reduction in carbon emissions. Bush was approached at the Road to Majority conference hosted by a reporter from the Undercurrent YouTube channel, who asked him what he planned to do about climate change. Jeb Bush answered, “Continue to embrace the reduction of carbon emissions that have taken place.”

    WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said Sunday that he supports a constitutional amendment that would bar the Supreme Court from granting marriage equality rights nationwide. The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision this month that could grant, for once and for all, same-sex couples the right to wed across the country. But Walker said on ABC's "This Week" that he would support amending the constitution to protect states that still want to ban same-sex marriage. "I personally believe that marriage is between one man and one woman," Walker, a prospective GOP presidential candidate, said. "If the...

    A new Quinnipiac University national poll shows there’s still only one clear leader in the Republican presidential primary race: Undecided. The poll, released Thursday, reports that 20 percent of registered Republican and Republican-leaning voters around the country don’t know or declined to answer whom they would vote for in their state's Republican primary. This is double the proportion any candidate received: The five candidates with the highest percentages all struggled to reach double digits, with a mere 10 percent each. Those candidates are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, retired physician Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Florida Sen. Marco...

According to the Huffington Post, the following foods are among the most addictive: pizza, chocolate, chips, cookies, and ice cream. The report shows foods that cause the most mental distress and physical discomfort are highly processed, as well as high in added fats and sugars. Food is not currently classified as an addiction, but experts say it can impact how you feel.

    As the field of possible GOP contenders for the White House start to take shape, it is important to assess what Latino voters think about the potential presidential candidates, if they even know who they are, and how they can possibly position themselves to court the Latino vote. There is no question that Republicans will lose the White House again in 2016 if they repeat the mistakes of Mitt "I would veto the Dream Act" Romney and lose three-quarters of the Latino vote. GOP Chairman Reince Preibus has said future Republican candidates "must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform," while...

Already, the Barack Obama administration and some leading Republican senators are using the Israeli internal disagreement to undermine support for the bill, authored by Republican Mark Kirk and Democrat Robert Menendez, which would enact new sanctions if current negotiations falter. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee -- supported by Republican Senators Lindsay Graham and John McCain -- is pushing for his own legislation...

    There is a growing movement in the United States against secrecy and a growing distrust that government is operating in the people's interest. Related to both of these movements is a call for President Obama to declassify and release the 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission Report that President Bush deemed too vital to United States intelligence operations to be released in the 2004 report. Both Republican Walter Jones, from North Carolina, and Democrat Stephen Lynch, from Massachusetts, say that the documents, which they have read, quite clearly spell out a relationship between President Bush and the Saudi government...

The extent that the Huffington Post is inappropriately using religion to push a worldwide political program of big spending programs on a problem that doesn't exist can be seen in the "religion" articles used to hype this agenda. The desperation...

    The World (Huffington) Post / Agence France-Presse ^ | September 12, 2014 | Ryan Grim and Akbar Shahid Ahmed
    As the United States begins to deepen ties with moderate Syrian rebels to combat the extremist group ISIS, also known as the Islamic State, a key component of its coalition appears to have struck a non-aggression pact with the group. According to Agence France-Presse, ISIS and a number of moderate and hard-line rebel groups have agreed not to fight each other so that they can focus on taking down the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Other sources say the signatories include a major U.S. ally linked to the Free Syrian Army. The deal between ISIS and the moderate Syrian...

    It’s hard to think of a worse candidate for a reporter covering national security issues than a once-committed 9/11 truther, but The Huffington Post apparently could. “The Huffington Post’s Washington bureau has hired professional football player and 9/11 truther Donte Stallworth as a fellow, covering national security,” Politico’s Dylan Byers wrote in a lede that would not seem out of place in The Onion. The Huffington Post was apparently not deterred by either Stallworth’s controversial views on the September 11 attacks, or his concern that the swine flu vaccine was part of an elaborate plot, or his criminal record....

    James Foley was tortured by members of the militant Islamic State group who were modeling some of their techniques on those used by the CIA, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. Foley was held by ISIS in Syria for nearly two years before his horrific beheading last week. The Post reported that, during that time, he and at least three others were "waterboarded several times." Waterboarding became perhaps the most notorious method of torture practiced by American interrogators in the years after September 11th. Interestingly, while the Post has, like most mainstream outlets, typically been reluctant to call methods such...

    Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is calling on the Obama administration to impose a travel ban on three West African nations in response to a growing Ebola virus outbreak. The House Foreign Affairs Committee member wants the State Department to bar citizens of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone from entering the United States, including any foreign travelers who have visited those countries in the previous 90 days. He also requested that the ban be expanded to any nation that reports an originating case of the virus, and that restrictions only be lifted 90 days after the last reported case.

    Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper on Thursday slammed the Huffington Post and reporter Sophie Jones, its Middle East correspondent, for the sensationalist headline, “‘They Just Wanted to Kill as Many People as Possible.”’ Cooper said the headline, accusing Israel of targeting civilians in its current war against Hamas in Gaza, and Jones’s reporting, “takes the art of lying and self-delusion to new depths.” The Huffington Post article quoted Israel Defense Forces Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, the IDF’s official spokesman, describing Israel’s policy and procedure to warn civilians before striking Gaza targets, but then accused Israel of targeting...

    A major Democratic donor who is funding some of the left’s most politically active electioneering groups was subject to bipartisan condemnation this week in the midst of a federal investigation into his hedge fund’s tax avoidance schemes. Senators from both parties blasted efforts by Renaissance Technologies, a hedge fund owned by Democratic mega-donor Jim Simons, to shield itself from federal income taxes during a Tuesday hearing. “Two banks and a handful of hedge funds developed a complex financial structure to engage in highly profitable trades while claiming an unjustified lower tax rate and avoiding limits on trading with borrowed money,”...

    Radio host Hugh Hewitt thoroughly embarrassed a Huffington Post reporter and exposed the scribe’s misleading view on Iraq during a brutal on-air interview. Hewitt hosted Zach Carter, the Huffington Post’s senior political economy reporter, on the show to discuss recent comments by former Vice President Dick Cheney. Carter had excoriated Cheney for remarks made about Iraq during a previous interview on Hewitt’s program. The conversation quickly spiraled out of control for Carter when Hewitt dismantled the reporter’s false arguments for why the Bush administration is to blame for the current violence in Iraq. Carter, in the interview, admitted that he...

    “It’s good to be King,” said Mel Brooks as Louis XVI in the director/actor’s “History of the World, Part 1.” No question Brooks was onto something as the Internal Revenue Service–one of the principle organs of Barack Hussein Obama’s 2012, Reelection Campaign—just paid $50,000 dollars to settle a lawsuit brought against the Service by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). Of course the settlement was paid with taxpayer dollars. During the 2012 presidential campaign, NOM accused the IRS of leaking information concerning the group’s contributors to Joe Solomese, head of the far-left Human Rights Campaign (HRC). The Huffington Post then...
