  • Why Gen Z Is Turning to Socialism

    VICE ^ | May 4, 2020 | Marie Solis
    Thomas Burriel was 13 when he first learned about democratic socialism. It happened on Instagram. Burriel was scrolling through his feed one day in February after school. At the time—winter 2018—he was still attending Linus Pauling, the middle school in his hometown of Corvallis, which is about two hours outside of Portland, Oregon. Linus Pauling offers a “Human Rights Club” and an “Equal Rights/Safer Space Club” to discuss social justice and world events, but Burriel wasn’t involved in them, or in any political clubs at school. And while he identified as a Democrat, he admitted that he had also sympathized...

    TikTok fans are retaliating for Trump’s threats of banning the app, which is owned by China’s Bytedance Ltd. and is hugely popular in the U.S., especially among teens. The thought of taking away a key social and entertainment hub in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic has led to outrage. “For Gen Z and Millennials, TikTok is our clubhouse and Trump threatened it,” said Yori Blacc, a 19-year-old TikTok user in California who joined in the app protest. “If you’re going to mess with us, we will mess with you.” Blacc said the movement gained steam Wednesday when a popular...

    I wonder what all those silly women who went Democrat in 2018 are thinking right now? We kept hearing about how the suburban women's vote did not like Trump. Well, what do you think of him now, ladies?

    To @realdonaldtrump Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform. We are...

    This video will make you laugh.  Sad to say I know very well meaning people like this.  Often they tend to be academia types that are for the most part brainwashed by leftist garbage.  It seems like no matter what evidece I provide them they only parrot what the media has told them initially. The good news is with some of them eventually overtime (3 months to a few years) they come to my position.  Although they like to pretend they came up with it all on their own.  Hey..., I am okay with that and even willing to playalong to...

    Ah, what are the future Extinction Rebellion members in New Mexico supposed to do? Teens who consider themselves to be climate activists are now on the horns of a dilemma. After Democrats managed to flip the state blue in the last elections, their new liberal governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, began pushing through all sorts of proposals. In addition to gun control and marijuana decriminalization, Grisham decided that all of the students in the state should get a free education at both two and four-year state colleges. What’s not to like, right?Well, according to some teen activists, there’s still a...

    Far-left climate extremist Greta Thunberg had a meltdown while speaking at the United Nations on Monday about climate change, claiming that the state of the world is on the verge of collapse. The Washington Examiner noted that Thunberg "has stage-parents, literally. Her mother sang opera internationally until the teenager convinced her to quit due to greenhouse gas emissions from flying, and her father and grandfather both gained fame through acting and directing." Thunberg repeatedly condemned adults by dramatically saying, "how dare you!" as she warned of a future that she suggested may not even exist due to climate change. "My...
  • Why USWNT star Megan Rapinoe doesn't sing the national anthem

    Yahoo Sports ^ | 13 Jun, 2019 | Henry Bushnell
    More Megan Rapinoe doesn’t sing the national anthem. This, to followers of soccer, is not news. Rapinoe hasn’t belted out the “Star Spangled Banner” since 2016. She no longer puts her hand over her heart. As she told Yahoo Sports last month, she probably never will again. But with the U.S. women’s national team kicking off its 2019 World Cup campaign on Tuesday, and Rapinoe captaining the squad, her unflinching face and pursed lips became a story. Naturally, it also became a subject of misinformation and misunderstanding among casual fans who weren’t familiar with Rapinoe’s activism. She has been very...

    In the wake of the devastating Detroit riots of the summer of 1967, Michigan Gov. George Romney — a liberal Republican — met the radical organizer Saul Alinsky to discuss the grievances of the urban black poor. Now Romney's son is fighting for the Republican nomination, and his main rival, Newt Gingrich, has made Barack Obama's alleged ties to Alinsky a centerpiece of his campaign.

    The Los Angeles Times posted an article yesterday suggesting that Donald Trump's presidency and the future of the Republican Party is in danger...because of white college graduates. Their argument? This demographic, who once supported Trump, has had enough of the President's 'shenanigans.' Republican hopes for keeping control of the U.S. Senate next year will hinge on affluent, mainly white suburbs like Summerlin, Nev., where Trump’s unpopularity is weighing on GOP Sen. Dean Heller in his run for reelection. It’s an open question whether the Republican Party — encumbered by Trump’s often racially charged cultural appeals to blue-collar voters — has...

    Headline of the Day ^ | December 5, 2017 | T.A. Reid
    ‘We have an obligation to redistribute’ The holiday season is upon us, and leave it to an Ivy Leaguer to play the role of the proverbial stick in the mud. Writing in the Yale Daily News, guest columnist Xuan (who uses the pronouns “they” and “them”) invokes the United States’ “legacy of colonialism, exploitation, slavery and genocide” to argue that Americans’ personal charity isn’t “quite enough” nor “all of morality.” They offer examples of a shady used car salesman and a sketchy entrepreneur who, after screwing over people in the past attempt to make good later in life through charitable...

    Not long ago, I got to know a very interesting person, who turned out to be a typically very confused liberal democrat. They can't hide all that anger and confusion behind their favorite slogan of "conservatives are full of hate!" for long. It's heartbreaking to watch such promise and talent and basic decency become wasted and used. Once, during a rare lucid, calm moment, he said to me that no one, the government or any powers that be, cared anything about him, because in the scheme of things, he was just a 'little fish'. He couldn't take any more facts...

They are inquisitive. They are not shy. They are, in a word, woke. And they want to talk about Hillary Clinton —(snip) Simcha Jacobs, 6, of Honolulu — said she was excited about the event “because I might see Hillary!” “Maybe she’ll make a surprise appearance,” the girl’s mother said hopefully. She did not. But Simcha was not alone in wanting to talk about Hillary and the current state of affairs...

    The woman charged by the Department of Justice with stealing “Top Secret” information from the National Security Agency apparently believes being white is a form of terrorism.That’s according to a tweet the alleged leaker, Reality Winner, sent in February. Winner, who is herself white, tweeted at rapper Kanye West that he should make a shirt declaring whiteness an act of terror.“@kanyewest you should make a shirt that says, ‘being white is terrorism’,” she tweeted.Winner’s social media history is filled with left-wing messages and support for progressives like Bernie Sanders, as The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross has previously documented.

    Parents, create ‘Havens at Home’ for all your school aged children. They are no longer being taught at school, but only brainwashed by the surrealistic politics of the progressives. It’s time to kick Progressive Politics 101 out to the curb, into the gutter where it truly belongs. Progressive Politics 101 is no longer a bunch of political bigwigs sitting around Congress deciding how the lives of the citizenry should be lived. PP 101’s taken over front row centre as the dominating factor in the NEWS of the day, which, in reality, is nothing more than Hollywood style entertainment.
  • Elian Gonzalez Mourns Death of Fidel Castro

    Elian Gonzalez, the Cuban boy who was involved in an international custody battle 16 years ago in Miami, is mourning the death of Fidel Castro, a man he compared to a "father." Elian was a photogenic five-year-old in 1999 when he was found floating on an inner tube off the Florida coast. Sixteen years later, he is recalling Fidel Castro as a man he likened to a father. In an interview on Cuban State TV Saturday, he said he wanted Fidel to be proud of him. Speaking in Spanish, he said, "He is a father who like my father, I...

    "President-elect Donald Trump is likely to find himself the subject of a federal court case next year. The subject: climate change. And the plaintiffs: 21 children who want to ensure they have the right to a livable atmosphere. A federal judge on Thursday denied the federal government's motion to dismiss the "climate kids" case, meaning their lawsuit over climate change will go to trial in federal court in Oregon, likely next year. The kid plaintiffs, ages 9 to 20, allege the federal government is doing far too little to keep dangerous global warming in check, and is actually creating warming...

    Osi Imeokparia, the Clinton campaign's chief product officer (don't ask), was interviewed on NPR yesterday and asked how she would feel if Donald Trump won the election. If you listen at about the 12-minute mark, you can hear her start to sob hysterically. "If Donald Trump is the victor, how devastating will that be to you?" she is asked. "Fairly. As you can see, I am a woman of color. I also am a recent naturalized citizen of the United States. On all dimensions this campaign is very personal (sob!) ... (sob! sob! sob!) ...

    A freshman tentatively raises her hand and takes the microphone. “I’m really scared to ask this,” she begins. “When I, as a white female, listen to music that uses the N word, and I’m in the car, or, especially when I’m with all white friends, is it O.K. to sing along?” The answer, from Sheree Marlowe, the new chief diversity officer at Clark University, is an unequivocal “no.”
