    CNN is having a tough week. There’s apparently no video of the alleged incident involving Don Lemon so it’s he said, he said. According to bartender Dustin Hice, he recognized Lemon at a Sag Harbor bar called Murf’s (Dustin worked at another nearby bar) and offered to buy him a drink. Lemon was with some other people and politely declined the offer saying he was just there to “have a good time, man.” Hice moved on but claims that minutes later Lemon approached him and that’s when things got very weird. From the complaint (via Mediaite): Sometime later that...

    CNN primetime host Don Lemon was accused of a bizarre, sexually charged assault of a bartender in New York's tony Hamptons last year in a civil suit filed earlier this week. Dustin Hice, of Florida, stated in the lawsuit that he was living in the Hamptons and working at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack during the summer of 2018. On July 15, after closing, Hice claimed he left with the owner and co-workers to party at another bar, Murf's Backstreet Tavern, in Sag Harbor, where they saw Lemon. Recognizing the newsman, Hice offered to buy him a vodka drink...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democrat Pete Buttigieg, who hopes to become the first openly gay presidential nominee from a major political party, said at an LGBTQ event Saturday that activists must band together to deny President Donald Trump a second term. "We've got a lot to worry about, a lot to fight for, but we have the means to do it," he said. The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, stressed the need for people to vote and to become involved in politics. Speaking before an audience gathered for Des Moines LGBTQ pride festivities in front of the Iowa statehouse,...

    Brian Sims is a democrat in the House of Representatives, elected in 2012 to represent the 182nd District. He is also weird. How anyone could elect this cretin is beyond me. In a way, he is representative not only of his district, but also of the democrat party in general. Sims recently harassed the hell out of an older white woman peacefully engaged in pro-life protest: The Democrat from Philadelphia, who is the first openly gay lawmaker in the State House, responded to Live Action: Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through...

    I’m a little bit late to this, but I’ve been traveling, and am getting caught up, and … this is insane! Rep. Brian Sims is also a gay activist. If you watch the video, you will see that this loony is attacking the peaceable old woman in flatly racist terms, calling her an “old white lady.” And, he did worse; from the Philadelphia Inquirer’s report about the controversy he has caused: "In one video, Sims approaches a woman and three girls who appear to be in their teens outside the Planned Parenthood clinic at 12th and Locust Streets and refers...

Full transparency, we’d never heard of this guy Twitter saw fit to verify, but doing a quick search it turns out he’s a co-producer on the remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Dude produced a movie that would fall into the ‘family’ genre and tweets crap like this:

    For the second time in two years, Los Angeles detectives have found a man dead inside the apartment of Ed Buck, a political activist who rose to national prominence in the late 1980s for his effort to recall the governor of Arizona, the authorities said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said it received a 911 call shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday from a person who claimed that a man inside a West Hollywood apartment had stopped breathing and could not be resuscitated. When emergency responders arrived at the residence, a second-floor unit on Laurel Avenue, they declared the...

    Kyler Murray won one of college football’s highest honors on Saturday as he was awarded the Heisman Trophy for his excellence as quarterback for Oklahoma, but USA Today wasn’t focused on his football accomplishments. In a report published late Saturday night, USA Today dug up several tweets and claimed that Murray had made homophobic statements on Twitter. According to the report, Murray called one of his friends a “queer” in 2012. He was 15 years old at the time of the tweet. In response to this hit from USA Today, Murray humbly apologized for the comments he had made when...

    Composer says work is "a radical appropriation of a European, patriarchal tradition, the formal Latin Mass, which we reinterpret through the lens of the marginalized LGBTQ experience" “Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Rite” will have its San Francisco premiere on Nov. 16 & 17 at Grace Cathedral. The piece is an evening-length choral work by singer-composer Holcombe Waller, created to honor those who have suffered persecution due to their sexual orientation or gender expression. “Requiem Mass” is presented by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in collaboration with Grace Cathedral’s Ghiberti Foundation. “‘Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Rite’ is a...

He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

    The College Fix ^ | August 3, 2018 | Michael Jones Auburn University
    Critic calls research ‘postmodern word salad’ University of Toronto scholar Stephanie Springgay’s newly published research alleges that there is more to felt, the material, than typically perceived. In her paper, “‘How to Write as Felt’: Touching Transmaterialities and More-Than-Human Intimacies,” published online in late July by Studies in Philosophy and Education, Springgay suggests that felt, a “dense material of permanently interlocking fibers,” can be linked to racism and capitalism. “[T]his paper addresses ‘the problem of education’ that is predicated on cis-heteronormative White supremacist settler colonial logics that assume knowledge enters from an outside, that is predicated on progress, and that...

    Chicago alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa penned an op-ed for NBC that encapsulates the reasons why Democrats will be unable to capitalize this November on the relative unpopularity of Republicans in the Midwest, given the Dems' turn to the hard left. Rosa is described as "Queer, Latinx and a democratic socialist" – whatever that means. In political terms, it means he would be a gone goose if he ran for Congress in the vast majority of districts anywhere in the Midwest. But Rosa doesn't see it that way. In fact, he believes that Midwesterners would embrace a socialist candidate and are "not...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham would like to see the White House apologize for a "disgusting" joke that was made about the health of his friend, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is battling brain cancer. Last week, a White House press aide, Kelly Sadler, joked to colleagues during a closed-door meeting mocked McCain’s health after he called for his Senate colleagues to reject Gina Haspel’s nomination for CIA director. “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler said. Graham, R-S.C., said if this was in fact a joke, "it was a terrible joke." "I just wish somebody from the White House would tell...

    former President Barack Obama is calling President Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal a "serious mistake" and said walking away from it "turns our back on America's closest allies." "The reality is clear. The JCPOA is working -- that is a view shared by our European allies, independent experts, and the current U.S. Secretary of Defense," Obama said in a statement Tuesday, referring to the agreement's title, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. "The JCPOA is in America's interest -- it has significantly rolled back Iran's nuclear program. And the JCPOA is a...
