  • White women’s role in white supremacy, explained (Triple industrial strength barf bag worthy)

    White women have been part of white supremacy in America since the very beginning, experts point out, dating back to their role in slavery. “They were at the table when the system was designed,” Stephanie Jones-Rogers, a history professor at UC Berkeley and author of the book They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South, told Vox. “They were co-architects of the system.”That remained true after the Civil War, through the birth and evolution of the Ku Klux Klan, and during the civil rights movement when white women were some of the most vocal opponents...

    ...More than half -- 58% -- of voters in the canton, or state, of Geneva, voted to set the minimum wage 23 francs an hour, the equivalent of $25 an hour. The initiative was backed by a coalition of labor unions, and is expected to affect about 6% of Geneva's workers when it takes effect Nov. 1.

    Author Don Winslow is teaming up with rocker Bruce Springsteen on his next anti-Trump campaign video aimed at torpedoing his chances at winning reelection in November. “I’m sick and tired of Donald Trump’s hateful and racist attacks against @SenKamalaHarris,” Winslow wrote on Twitter, where he later made the announcement that he’s working with the E Street Band fonrtman. “This is my new video about mini-Donald. It is called #TheTruthAboutIvanka.”
  • Today's Shakespeare vs Ben Johnson Rap Poet Contest? (Some offensive language)

    09/03/2020 9:01:57 AM PDT · by BEJ · 11 replies
    Imagine Shakespeare walking into his local pub and there is his ole friend and competitor Ben Johnson. They have a few drinks while discussing who is the better poet. Drinks are flowing and the conversation gets heated so they decide to have a poetry rap/slam contest to determine the winner. Word play as sword play and an insult competition... like a Dean Martin Roast among poets. Here is what it might have looked like if it happened today in England. Note: Both Harry Baker and Soweto are Oxford students. Harry Baker is also a Christian and does Ted Talks. Some...

    Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Susan Rice's conduct in the waning days of their administration in 2016 and 2017 was nothing short of treasonous. It wasn't treason, per se, but surely it was nothing short of treason. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Susan Rice coordinated an effort to investigate, surveil and spy on members of the Trump campaign, members of the Trump Administration, and President Trump himself. And, to carry out the plan, they required members of the new administration to continue carrying out the directions of Obama, the former president, at the expense of Trump, the new president.
  • De Blasio heckled as he paints ‘Black Lives Matter’ mural at Trump Tower

    Mayor Bill de Blasio was greeted with a few jeers as he showed up to help paint a giant Black Lives Matter mural on Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower on Thursday — with a couple of angry onlookers shouting “douchebag de Blasio” upon his arrival. The mayor joined first lady Chirlane McCray, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) to fill in the letter “L” with yellow paint for what some critics, including President Trump himself, have called a political stunt. When he arrived around 11:30 a.m., two or three men shouted “douchebag...
  • H.L. Mencken: Misfit In 21st-Century America

    WorldNet Daily ^ | July 2, 2020 | ILANA MERCER
    H.L. Mencken, a contrarian polemicist and the consummate critic, who wrote prolifically and prodigiously from 1899 until 1948, may no longer seem relevant, but the fault would not be his. Mencken was a well-read bon vivant with a taste for Teutonic philosophy and a fidelity to immutable truth. He was also a brilliant satirist and a writer whose facility with the English idiom and grasp of intellectual history are unsurpassed. How can a phenom like Mencken appeal in our age, The Age of the Idiot? He can’t: He should, but he can’t. Henry Louis Mencken cannot appeal to the bumper...

    In one video clip, a black man kneels in front of a line of police, then one by one young white men move in as shields, human barriers between him and the law. In another, a black woman yells at two white women spray-painting a Starbucks shop with “BLM,” — Black Lives Matter — telling them to stop, that vandalism isn’t helping. Variations of both scenes have played out around the country many times in the more than two weeks of protests following the killing of George Floyd by police. They raise the issue: For white people wanting to be...

    Some people just don’t get a joke. An April 22 Facebook post had a mock screenshot of beachgoers crammed cheek by jowl to enjoy the waves at Arizona’s ever popular seaside. The image looked as though it was pulled from television news and under the headline, "Crowded beaches in AZ," was the summary "People defying stay-at-home order fill Arizona beaches."

  • Photo of Trump's notes show he crossed out 'corona' and replaced it with 'Chinese' as he continues to use 'racist' term during press briefing about COVID-19.

    A photo of Donald Trump's notes from his Thursday press briefing shows his script had been amended so the term 'corona virus' read 'Chinese virus' - as the president doubled down on his use of the term which critics have branded racist. During the speech, Trump repeated his argument that China is to blame for the original spread of the virus, which has claimed thousands of lives around the world. But he has faced criticism for calling it a 'Chinese virus', as the deadly disease is now a global pandemic.

Facilities staff are spending the weekend cleaning up messes across campus...

    A warming planet has major ramifications on winter snowpack across the globe, including a long-term drying trend for many. That's a concern for winter sports enthusiasts and communities that depend on snow throughout the year. Not many understand this better than the climate advocacy group known as Protect Our Winters (POW). The group is an organization of professional athletes and like-minded individuals fighting for policy to protect winter sports and mountain communities. "Increased temperatures are melting away both my sport and my livelihood," professional ski mountaineer and POW representative Caroline Gliech told the US Senate late last year. This year...

    Watch: Sheila Jackson Lee Rails Against Trump Budget as Racist, Claims It Invokes Slavery Democrats seem to term everything racist, especially when it has anything to do with Republicans or President Donald Trump, whether it makes sense or not. Some of the things they’ve termed racist over the years are just downright silly. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) demonstrated exactly that during a Congressional hearing on the proposed Trump budget for next year. Russell Vought was answering questions for the Office of Management and Budget to Congress. Lee attacked the budget talking about the “racist roots of work” and then...

    Democrats are calling on Twitter and Facebook to take down an edited video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ripping up the State of the Union address -- claiming it's designed to “mislead” people. “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, said Friday.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As she arrived to speak at the region’s first ever resilience leadership summit, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor came upon a hotel parking lot packed with cars. Hundreds of people from local governments, universities and scientific consulting firms had shown up Tuesday. Valets at the Hilton in Carillon Park double-parked vehicles, choking the entry. The scene summarized the day: a symbol both of the growing interest in climate change in Tampa Bay and the enormous hurdles officials face as they aim to curb emissions (from cars, for instance) contributing to rising seas. **SNIP** Among the first speakers was...

    Bruce Ohr, the highest-ranking Obama Justice Department official to involve himself in distributing the anti-Trump dossier, carried out his freelancing through numerous meetings, phone calls and emails as a link between the FBI and Hillary Clinton forces. He told a colleague that the Russia election scandal reached the top — Donald Trump. It was his “duty as a citizen” to spread the unverified allegations around town, he said. During all of Mr. Ohr’s maneuverings, from the summer of 2016 to Mr. Trump’s election to the fall of 2017, he hid the operation from his bosses. When Mr. Ohr’s name surfaced...
