    British author JK Rowling has received a death threat from an Iran-backing Islamist extremist who appears to have praised Salman Rushdie's suspected attacker, repeatedly expressed support for Tehran's theocratic dictator Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and branded Israel, Ukraine and India 'terrorist states'. The Harry Potter writer and free speech campaigner - who has been pilloried by trans activists for her beliefs on gender - had expressed her horror at the sickening attempt on Rushdie's life in upstate New York when she was issued the chilling threat on Twitter. Meer Asif Aziz, who describes himself on Twitter as a 'student, social activist,...
  • Woke NPR is blasted over gushing review for controversial transgender author's violent horror novel which depicts JK Rowling being burned alive at her home

    NPR is coming under fire after it released a gushing review over a twisted horror novel written by a transgender author which gleefully depicts JK Rowling's violent death in a fire. Gretchen Felker-Martin's novel, Manhunt, has sparked fury over scenes in which 'terfs' (so-called trans-exclusionary radical feminists) including Rowling, meet grisly ends. And now NPR - which has come under fire for its increasingly woke and biased content - has found itself in hot water over journalist Liam McBain's favorable write-up. 'To be upfront, Manhunt is not for everyone,' his review begins. 'It is gory, and brutal, and sickened me...
  • Why are activists erasing J.K. Rowling from her Harry Potter novels?

    03/15/2022 7:21:14 PM PDT · by NetAddicted · 41 replies ^ | 3/14/2022 | Rachael Wong
    Trans activists avoid debate and instead rely on intimidation and insults to silence women. In 2016, Ruth Barrett published Female Erasure, a collection of essays by women speaking out against gender identity politics with the aim of exposing the harmful effects of this novel belief system on the lives of women and children. In a prologue to the book, Barret assumes a male voice to illustrate how male appropriation of womanhood works first to silence and ultimately to erase women: Because I am a woman, therefore you must treat me as if I actually am, otherwise you are transphobic. As...

    It looks like the New York Times is at it again. In recent years, America’s least-reliable news source has developed a strange view of Britain — or at least since the Brexit vote in 2016. In the NYT’s world, the UK is a desolate place, where locals huddle round trash can fires on the streets of London, gnawing on legs of mutton and cavorting in swamps during the summer, ever fearful of the despot prime minister, Boris Johnson. Just last month the paper’s international edition ran a front-page comment piece claiming the country would “sleepwalk into tyranny” thanks to our...

    For some time now, J.K. Rowling has been taking a Twitter stand against transgenderism, a fantasy-based movement that erases women by giving men access to their locker rooms, swimming pools, boxing rings, racetracks, prisons, admiral ranks, and even Jeopardy. No wonder that, when a British newspaper ran an online poll looking for the “Person of the Year,” Rowling ran away with the victory. How ironic, then, that Rowling has now grovelled before the transgender mob. I’ve written before how Rowling has long been the only high-profile figure in the English-speaking world to oppose the way in which the transgender movement...

    Did British leftwing rag The Guardian pull down its “Person of the Year” poll after an undesirable took a commanding lead? That’s the allegation being made after voting was abruptly shut down following the realization that J.K. Rowling was going to run away with it.This per The Daily Wire.Readers of the British newspaper, The Guardian, are accusing the outlet of deactivating an online poll that asked readers to vote on “Person of the Year” after it became apparent that J.K. Rowling would handily win.“Tell us: who is your 2021 person of the year?” ran the headline, posted on Dec. 15,...

    EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND—According to sources, a dangerous right-wing extremist named J.K. Rowling has taken to the internet to spread hateful rhetoric. Authorities have called for decisive action to silence the bigoted fascist before she further spreads her message. "Men aren't women," said the disgusting transphobe in a recent Twitter post. She then doubled down on her controversial message by also saying "Women aren't men." "This is a hate crime," said EU Diversity Minister Günter Schreiber. "Everyone knows that women aren't a real thing, but rather a fantastical state of being that ebbs and flows through the human imagination like a wisp...
  • Quidditch to change name, citing J.K. Rowling's 'anti-trans positions'

    Real-life quidditch, inspired by the magical game in "Harry Potter," is changing its name, citing author J.K. Rowling's "anti-trans positions in recent years." US Quidditch and Major League Quidditch announced in a joint news release Wednesday that they will conduct a series of surveys over the next few months to decide on a new name for the sport, which resembles soccer and field hockey, but as a contact sport with broomsticks. “For the last year or so, both leagues have been quietly collecting research to prepare for the move and been in extensive discussions with each other and trademark lawyers...
  • Elon Musk video gets conservative comedian dumped by YouTube

    Conservative comedian Steven Crowder has been suspended by YouTube over a video on Elon Musk, which the platform claims contained content “glorifying or inciting violence.” Crowder announced the suspension of his ‘Louder with Crowder’ show on Wednesday and recommended viewers instead watch his show on Rumble, a streaming platform that has become popular with conservative pundits. This is not Crowder’s first suspension. In its message to the comedian, which Crowder posted on Twitter, YouTube claims that his Musk video “violates our hate speech policy.” The message goes on to say the decision was made to keep YouTube a “safe place.”...

    MADISON, Wis. – A Madison school board candidate who described herself as “trans-a-phobic” last week has dropped out of the race. Mary Jo Walters announced she would withdraw her campaign for Seat 3 in a Facebook post Friday. “I am opting out of the run for many personal reasons,” Walters said. “I’d like to thank all that engaged in these discussions.” She now plans to start a book club. Walters drew criticism after posting transphobic comments on social media. In an interview Monday, she called herself gender critical. The former candidate for lieutenant governor wanted to reverse the district’s decision...

    To say “wokeness” has gone too far is like saying the Y2K threat may be over. Both statements are long past their usefulness even as our woke society continues to push the boundaries of lunacy. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been outspoken about her feminism that does not abide by the tenets of modern day LGBTQ+ supremacy. In particular, gender idiocy is a hot topic for her because she rightly feels biological men have taken advantage of the feminist movement, prioritizing their identity over the rights of biological women. We see it daily in sports, bathrooms, and Loudoun County...

    Author J.K. Rowling, the female author who wrote the Harry Potter series, has been outspoken in recent years about protecting the rights of women and keeping definitions of biological gender intact. As a result, she's been tagged as an "anti-transgender" bigot. Just last week, HBO Max confirmed she would not be invited to the 20th anniversary celebration of the series, despite her becoming one of the most successful fictional novelists in the history of the world. Most recently, Rowling faced harassment by transgender activists at her home and detailed the experience

    The outspoken North Carolina politician was attacked for saying that graphic gay and transgender material has no place in public schools. North Carolina’s Mark Robinson got launched in politics when he spoke his mind about our right to bear arms. Since then, he has continued to refuse to back down when he runs afoul of the ever-growing list of leftist shibboleths. Most recently, cancel culture came for him when he referred to graphic gay and transgender material in school libraries as “filth.” True to form, while defending every person’s right to equal treatment under the law, Robinson made it clear...

    10/08/2021 7:25:33 AM PDT · by mylife · 72 replies
    Dave Chappelle released a new comedy special, The Closer, on Netflix last night. Which means, with a depressing inevitability, that Chappelle also released a new set of jokes predicated on making fun of trans people, depicting them as thin-skinned bullies bound and determined to push poor, multi-millionaire comedians like Dave Chappelle around. GLAAD has now issued a condemnation of the special, which includes a loud declaration from Chappelle that he’s “Team TERF!” in addition to other transphobic material. Chappelle, in fact, devotes quite a considerable chunk of The Closer to talking about trans issues—i.e., the issue of trans people asking...

    JK Rowling has called for an end to the 'climate of fear' around the trans debate after being sent 'heart-breaking' letters from women who had irreversible gender reassignment surgery. The Harry Potter author, 55, said she 'had a huge postbag' with hundreds of letters following her comments over the summer, adding that 90 per cent of them were in support of her stance. She told Good Housekeeping magazine: 'Many women are concerned about the challenges to their fundamental rights posed by certain aspects of gender identity ideology.' It comes after Keira Bell, 23, brought legal action against the Tavistock and...
  • HILARIOUS: John Cleese Savages Transgender Orthodoxy in Epic Tweetstorm

    On Sunday morning, a host of pro-transgender tweeters attacked Monty Python master John Cleese for his defense of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has received death threats for her moderate stance on transgender issues. Any dissent from the woke orthodoxy on transgenderism must not be tolerated. Cleese didn’t just savage the insanity of this witch hunt, he had tremendous fun with it. It seems the latest round of controversy came when Cleese tweeted about Claus von Stauffenberg, a German who tried to assassinate Adolf Hitler because Hitler was leading Germany to disaster. Even though von Stauffenberg was right, he...
