    Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. posted — and then apparently deleted — a bizarre Instagram post in which he appeared with his shirt hiked up and his pants unzipped, standing next to a woman identified as a “friend.” In the caption, Falwell wrote the drink he was holding was “just black water” and a “prop only.” The post was captured by Houston Chronicle reporter Robert Downen before it was deleted. The caption says that “Lots of good friends visited us on the yacht.

    Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia, said Tuesday a student expelled for racist social media was reinstated after an appeal revealed the woman did not post the content. "We received new information showing that the student did not post the racist content in early June," the school said in a statement. "We will ensure she transitions seamlessly back into campus life when the fall semester begins. She has our full support." The expulsion was announced by the school June 4 after the college, the first in the world chartered for women, was made aware of the postings that morning, according to Tuesday's statement...

On Wednesday Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Apple’s Tim Cook testified before Congress in the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust. Since 2016 and the election of Donald Trump the tech giants have been censoring and banning conservative voices online. The Gateway Pundit has been a huge target of these liberal tech giants. Of course, the CEOs dismissed allegations that they are targeting and censoring conservative users despite ALL...

    Yesterday, Instagram obscured a video from the superstar’s account for touting a conspiracy theory that claims a cure for the coronavirus has “been found and proven and has been available for months.” “They would rather let fear control the people and let the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,” the caption read for the 61-year-old pop icon’s 15 million followers. The censored clip features Dr. Stella Immanuel, a primary-care physician based in Houston, Texas, and major figure in the so-called “America’s Frontline Doctors” video, which has already been removed from major social-media platforms, including Instagram, YouTube and Facebook....

    A college student at Fordham University in New York was punished and forced to undergo “political reeducation” this summer for two Instagram posts – one of which depicted the student holding an AR-15. Austin Tong is a rising senior at Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business, and he accused the school of “Soviet-style interrogation and punishment.” “I am no longer permitted on campus, with public safety coming to my home at midnight to question me on the day of the post, and face forced political reeducation through mandatory courses and to write an apology letter, or will face full suspension...

  • Springfield police detective Florissa Fuentes fired over pro-Black Lives Matter social media post (MA)

    07/14/2020 11:30:41 AM PDT · by matt04 · 49 replies
    Florissa Fuentes went through an admittedly rocky adolescence growing up in the city’s North End, finding herself in loads of trouble before a high school-based city police officer persuaded her to move to North Carolina for a new perspective. Hailing from a heavily military family, Fuentes returned to the city in 2007, a teen hoping for a fresh start. She aimed to join the U.S. Navy, but her brother, Daniel Newsome, was killed in combat in Baghdad, discounting her from enlisting just as she prepared for basic training. Fuentes eventually set her eyes on a corrections career, graduating from the...

    Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated producer Tony Cervone confirmed a long-standing theory by explaining that the show's incarnation of classic Scooby-Doo! character Velma Dinkley was, in fact, written as a gay woman. Cervone interjected during an argument between two Scooby-Doo! fans in the comment section of an Instagram post, which had depicted Velma and the character of Marcie Fleach in a romantic relationship. One commenter decried the post on the grounds that Mystery Incorporated saw Velma in a relationship with Shaggy Rogers, while another cited previous revelations about the show pertaining to how Velma and Marcie were ostensibly both bisexual and how...

    Google’s chairman wants algorithms to censor the internet for hate speech - Quartz In an op-ed for The New York Times (paywall), Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, inserted himself directly into the middle of a heated debate about the line between fighting terrorism’s online reach and internet censorship. “It’s our responsibility to demonstrate that stability and free expression go hand in hand,” he writes. “We should build tools to help de-escalate tensions on social media—sort of like spell-checkers, but for hate and harassment.” His words came just after Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, called...

    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...

    Patrick Harrington is sitting on a rock high on a hilltop...his head in his hands. The owner of Kindness Yoga, and one of the most well-known yogis in Denver, is struggling to piece together the words to explain what happened — in the span of a week — to his once-stellar reputation and his 19-year-old business. He is stunned, though remorseful. He is eager to speak up, yet on edge for fear of saying anything that could make all of this any worse. Harrington, a straight, white guy who expanded Kindness to nine studios and 160 employees across metro Denver,...

    Facebook on Tuesday banned hundreds of accounts, groups and pages that it said were linked to the Boogaloo movement, a loosely organized extremist collective whose members have occasionally shown up armed to racial justice and anti-quarantine protests around the country. The banned content includes a core set of 220 Facebook accounts, 95 accounts on Facebook-owned Instagram and dozens of pages and groups that Facebook, in a blog post, said posed a "credible threat" to public safety. Facebook said the accounts were "actively promoting violence against civilians, law enforcement, and government officials and institutions."

    Tina Lawson expressed indignation that Kentucky’s attorney general paused the highly scrutinized investigation into Breonna Taylor’s killing to get engaged. Lawson’s scorching Instagram post comes two weeks after daughter BeyoncĂ© expressed exasperation in an open letter to Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron. Both are anguished that it has taken months to decide whether to charge the three Louisville police officers who killed Taylor while she slept in her bed at 1 a.m. Lawson is especially vexed that the 34-year-old attorney general is not working around the clock to expedite the conclusion of this monumental inquest.

    Comedian Chelsea Handler posted a clip of Louis Farrakhan on Instagram yesterday with the comment, “I learned a lot from watching this powerful video.” The 9-minute clip showed Farrakhan answering questions from a mostly white audience on “The Phil Donahue Show.” As you can see, Handler’s post has been liked more than 90,000 times. She was challenged by many people leaving comments, one of whom asked if she would share a clip of Hitler too if he said something she liked. One replied, “So, based on this logic, if you find a video of Hitler saying something positive and powerful,...
