    Writing as an anti Trump democrat. Slowly with this R accusation... The racists that cry "racism" (the phenomenon after exposing some of Bari Weiss' former colleages at New York Times). I do not know these former colleague personally. Yet, it is about the phenomenon in and of itself, Let's take specifically Bari Weiss' accusation. Excerpt: "My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several...
  • CNN's Jim Acosta, Anderson Cooper called out for partisan commentary after Trump's Rose Garden remarks: 'Sad resistance performance art'

    CNN appeared particularly peeved that President Trump veered off-script Tuesday by attacking presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the Rose Garden, unleashing the liberal network’s reporters and anchors to criticize and offer partisan opinions of the event. Conservative communications strategist Chris Barron said CNN has dropped journalism for “sad resistance performance art” since Trump took office, and Tuesday was simply the latest example. “CNN is a collection of the least self-aware people on the planet. Their 24/7 rants about Trump speak more about themselves than they do about the President,” Barron told Fox News. “CNN, long ago, dropped any...

    A video editor who shaped the buzzy Lincoln Project ads needling President Trump is no longer affiliated with the Republican organization over a series of past tweets in which he used offensive slang for female anatomy to insult political rivals. Ben Howe, who came of age politically making anti-Obama ads during the rise of the tea party, did not publicly tout his work for the super PAC formed by a group of high-level Republican operatives who have broken ranks with the party over Trump’s presidency until a recent interview with Vanity Fair. He was described in the article as “the...

    Kellyanne Conway’s teenage daughter says her parents are kicking her offline after she began playfully trolling them and sharing her liberal opinions on TikTok and Twitter. In what she called “my last tweet” on Monday night, 15-year-old Claudia wrote: “My parents are forcing me to delete social media… apparently, i don’t have a platform! it’s fake!” “Love you all so much. keep fighting,” she added to her nearly 118,000 followers. When one person expressed their outrage in the comments, Claudia responded with “#saveclaudiaconway.”

    New Yorkers are dying, but DA Vance is going after Trump. NYPD Twitter accounts are usually boring. So it was highly unusual when the police account for South Manhattan blasted the borough’s DA. “Manhattan DA Cy Vance where are you? No show at any shooting scene!!! Our community is being attacked, there have been 24 people shot in the city in the past 24 hours....Where Are You!!!,” the official police account blared after a bloody July 4th weekend. "Complete No Show in Manhattan North!! Shame!!" the account for Manhattan North chimed in. The Manhattan district attorney’s poor relationship with the...

Reddit users who keep tabs on potential hate crime hoaxes via the popular subreddit are met with a label notifying them that “r/hatecrimehoaxes has been banned from Reddit.” The page also notes that the page was banned for “violating Reddit’s rule against promoting hate.”

    (Search showed nothing) It's fun to be a mob leader until the mob turns on you, as Nancy Pelosi is finding out. A socialist challenger is gunning for her San Francisco district and got #PelosiMustGo to trend on Twitter all day Sunday. Trending on Twitter is a big deal when you're trying to influence the Left's low-information voters. Pelosi's opponent, Shahid Buttar, is a left-wing activist, lawyer, DJ and poet. Among other impressive things, Buttar boasts about his trips to Burning Man, his "socially conscious music" and "outdoor poetry" jams. Buttar finished second in the primary and represents Pelosi's first...

    The creator of The Office, Ricky Gervais, has called out the online “fascists” that want to shut down freedom of speech, saying that “if you’re mildly conservative on Twitter people call you Hitler.” Continuing on his press tour marking the nineteenth anniversary of The Office, Gervais followed up his criticisms of cancel culture with an attack on the idea of so-called “hate speech”. “There’s this new weird sort of fascism of people thinking they know what you can say and what you can’t and it’s a really weird thing… that there’s this new trendy myth that people who want free...

    Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of liberal Black Lives Matter activists are tormenting the teenage daughter of a slain police officer on social media. On Saturday evening, Texas Police Officers Edelmiro Garza Jr., 45, and Ismael Chavez, 39, were shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in McAllen. They were both fatally shot by the suspect as they approached the door. “The officers never had a chance to suspect a deadly assault on them, much less death, at that moment in time,” McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said during a press conference about the shooting. When additional officers arrived, the...

    As relations between Twitter and its conservative users continue to deteriorate, a new conservative-friendly alternative is gaining steam with its stated devotion to true freedom of speech. Founded by John Matze and Jared Thomson, Parler bills itself as a “non-biased free speech driven entity that “accepts your right to express your thoughts, opinions and ideals online.” Whereas Twitter and Facebook have steadily adopted and expanded roles as adjudicators of “productive” versus “hateful” or “misleading” speech, Parler says it “aims to empower users to control their social experience. Users can be responsible to engage content as they see fit.” The platform...

    A tudent at Texas A&M University who reported that racist notes had been left on his car windshield is responsible for the act, police say. KBTX-TV reported that in June, Texas A&M senior Isaih Martin alerted the university police when he allegedly discovered handwritten messages reading “All lives matter” and “You don’t belong here,” along with a third listing the N-word, on his vehicle, which he had parked at an apartment complex on the school’s property. Martin posted a photo of the notes to a Twitter account that has since been made private. According to KBTX, the university responded to...

    lection meddling, anyone? By “fact-checking” just one tweet by President Donald J. Trump, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey shows he and other social media giants like him have both the power and the desire to swing elections and the power and desire to swing the 2020 election away from Trump and toward the incoherent Joe Biden who probably thinks tweeting is what those honking geese were doing outside his basement window. That action, along with tagging another Trump tweet commenting on the need for law enforcement and civil and state authorities to confront rioting in Minneapolis as possibly promoting violence interferes...

    She takes out her enemies in increasingly sadistic fashion as bisexual assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve. Now, however, actress Jodie Comer has found herself the victim after hundreds of social media users called for her to be 'cancelled' – the modern equivalent of being chased with burning torches. The Bafta-winner's apparent crime is that she is said to be dating an American supporter of Donald Trump's Republican party – despite playing a bisexual character in the hit BBC drama.

    “Killing Eve” star Jodie Comer is in hot water on Twitter. The 27-year-old is facing “cancel” cries online after social media users discovered she’s possibly dating a Republican who supports President Trump. This comes amid her vocal support for several progressive causes, such as Black Lives Matter and Pride. Twitter sleuths linked the actress, who plays a queer woman on “Killing Eve,” to a man named James Burke after paparazzi photos surfaced of her sitting outdoors with a mystery man. A man by that name is a registered Republican. However, it’s not evidently clear how Burke’s name was discovered, or...

    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...
