Headline from the Guardian:
Black activist jailed for his Facebook posts speaks out about secret FBI surveillance
Oh the FBI has a long and shitty history of monitoring, infiltrating, and harassing the African American community.
J. Edgar Hoover was a piece of shit and he hated homosexuals and black folks bigly.
So when Trump and the FBI go toe to toe it’s just two assholes having a grudge match — there are no heroes in the ring.
From the Intercept:
Their silence is deafening — and telling. Palestinians, it seems, have been so dehumanized that they don’t deserve a humanitarian intervention; their blood is cheap, their plight is unimportant, and, perhaps above all else, their killers are our friends.
How dare Palestinians fight to have a homeland?
How dare they stand up to Israel?
There’s always some reason why the rights of Palestinians can’t be considered equal to the rights of other human beings, most notably Israeli citizens.
And this is the essence of dehumanization — you deserve what you’re getting which is nothing.
Headline from the Guardian:
NRA head breaks silence to attack gun control advocates: ‘They hate individual freedom’
This piece of shit LaPierre is an ill bitch, a foul fucking human being. I hope he fucking dies suffocating underneath a mountain of his own bullshit and twisted, fucked in the head logic.
Fuck this dude bigly.

Mike Pence just won’t let it go. After it emerged on Wednesday that openly gay Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon had turned down a meeting with Pence to discuss his public opposition to Pence’s homophobia, the vice president of the United States fired off a couple of awkward and desperate tweets just after midnight on Thursday.
Awkward and desperate (and yearning!).
From here via Ian Welsh (read his blog!):
In the three months since Internet monopoly Google announced plans to keep users from accessing “fake news,” the global traffic rankings of a broad range of left-wing, progressive, anti-war and democratic rights organizations have fallen significantly.
Google has taken their corporate motto, the long out of date Do No Evil, and have changed it to Do Evil in Sneaky Ass Fucking Ways to make Money for You and Your Shareholders and then Pretend to not be Evil.
From the Intercept here:
But now, a group of 43 senators — 29 Republicans and 14 Democrats — wants to implement a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, which was launched in protest of that country’s decades-old occupation of Palestine.
‘Liberal’ lions Chuckie Boy Schemer and Kristen Gillibrand are co-sponsors.
You can’t protest or boycott Israel in America?
You’re fucking kidding me, right?
From the New York Times:
Vice President Mike Pence has undertaken extensive personal outreach to donors, fueling speculation that he is preparing for his own political future.
And I don’t use the word lightly for Jesus Pence. He believes in the gay conversion therapy bullshit, the ‘religious freedom’/deny gay folks commercial rights, he’s a big fan of controlling women’s bodies.
He looks very reasonable, he’s got the gray hair, he’s a serious, thoughtful looking dude. The problem is he’s a fascist, a real one, not just one that has a big mouth and likes to urinate on people (we’re looking at you Donald).
