Slippery Weasel Zuckerberg Faces Day 2 of Senate Hearing, as Internet Notices Booster Seat for the Little Fellow

The Internet is paying a lot of attention to Mark Zuckerberg’s seat cushion when it should be paying 100 percent attention to what he’s saying.

Added height or the perception of height is a psychological ploy to increase the “authority figure” idea in the minds of others.

You can read more about the cushion at Fortune and other sites. Let’s see what Zuck has had to say in his second day of testimony. Links to several articles and a dozen Tweets flesh out the political theater that has a nation mesmerized. Not that hatred of Zuck is going to diminish because of anything he has to say.

Trump Fires Back at Mueller Over Raid on His Attorney’s Office

Following the meeting with his advisers on what to do in Syria (that’s John Bolton on Trump’s left), the press engaged President Trump in questions about the FBI raid on his lawyers’ office, covered in a separate post below.

Trump “raged” according to the Daily Mail, although the video I’ve seen shows no such raging, but rather disgust.

Anyway, Trump was Trump. He got in some good points, although I expect that later tonight and tomorrow he’ll be Tweeting more about the possible Constitutional crisis set off by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI today.

Watch the Twitter video of Trump’s remarks embedded below.

Excerpt from the Daily Mail

Hours later at the White House, flanked by cabinet members who were there to discuss how to respond to a chemical weapons attack in Syria, he raged: ‘They raid an office of a personal attorney early in the morning and I think it’s a disgrace.’

Trump called it ‘an attack on our country and what we all stand for’.

Trump Calls for WaPo Reporter to be Fired over Misleading Photo Psyop

PENSACOLA RALLY. TRUMP CAN FILL A VENUE, UNLIKE THE NFL.

WaPo’s David Weigel tried to please his core audience of Trump haters with a photo of Trump’s Pensacola rally he knowingly misidentified. It didn’t escape Trump’s notice.

New York Daily News

President Trump put a Washington Post reporter on blast for shared a misleading photo on Twitter suggesting his rally in Florida attracted a low turn-out on Friday.

David Weigel was being sarcastic when he shared a photo of the empty stands at the Pensacola Bay Center where Trump was holding a campaign rally on Friday and wrote, “Packed to the rafters.”

DAVID WEIGEL DENIES BEING A JEW.

Weigel’s silly little psyop is often associated with the members of The Tribe, a tribe that Weigel denies being a member of.

Trump, who shared photos of the crowded venue during his speech, tweeted, “@DaveWeigel @WashingtonPost put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue, w/ thousands of people outside, on their way in.”

He continued, “Real photos now shown as I spoke. Packed house, many people unable to get in. Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!”

Weigel, who said he deleted the photo after about 20 minutes, wrote, “Sure thing: I apologize.”

The politics reporter went on to add, “It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post. I deleted it after like 20 minutes. Very fair to call me out.”

But Trump wasn’t ready to forgive and forget and called for the reporter to be fired.

“@daveweigel of the Washignton Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an almost empty arena last night for my speech in PEnsacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on T.V.). FAKE NEWS, he should be fired,” the president tweeted.

LOOKS FULL.

St. Martin’s Blacks Complain About White Privilege in Rescue Efforts

Don’t worry about the blacks. They’re looting.

And when they’re not looting, they’re complaining.

Excerpt from Associated Press

MARIGOT, St. Martin (AP) — In the chaotic days after Hurricane Irma smashed St. Martin, the storm also exposed simmering racial tensions on the island’s French territory, with some black and mixed-race residents complaining that white tourists were given priority during the evacuation.

It was the type of anger that has long plagued France’s far-flung former colonies – especially its Caribbean territories, where most of the population identifies as black and is poorer than the white minority.

Johana Soudiagom was disturbed to find herself among a tiny handful of non-whites evacuated by boat to nearby Guadeloupe after Irma devastated the island.

“It’s selective. Excuse me, but we saw only mainlanders,” she told Guadeloupe 1ere television, visibly shaken. “That’s a way of saying, ‘I’m sorry, only whites. There are only whites on the boat.'”

It’s common practice for tourists to be evacuated first from disaster zones for practical reasons, as they are staying in hotels and not in their homes and tend to have fewer resources such as food and vehicles. The French prime minister insisted Monday that the only people being prioritized were the most vulnerable.

Government spokesman Christophe Castaner said he understood islanders’ frustration with the government response but blamed part of the controversy on their “emotional shock, an impact that’s extremely hard psychologically.”

Soudiagom and other witnesses told Guadeloupe 1ere that the boat they took Friday carried tourists, including Americans, to safety but left many St. Martin residents behind, including needy mothers and children.

On Monday, France’s Representative Council of Black Associations asked the government for a parliamentary inquiry, citing concerns that those who were evacuated were not “necessarily the most in distress.”

“In my eyes, Irma is for the French Antilles what Hurricane Katrina was for Louisiana in the U.S. – an exposer of racial and social inequalities,” the group’s spokesman, Louis-Georges Tin, told The Associated Press.

The terror of facing down a Category 5 hurricane has combined with a long-held sense of isolation among local residents of St. Martin, some 6,700 kilometers (4,200 miles) from the French mainland and popular with European tourists.

“The natural catastrophe occurred in a place that’s very vulnerable socially, where there is a population of many different skin colors and a history of slavery,” said Michel Giraud, a French researcher who writes on race. “Of course there will be a perception of racism.”

The island of St. Martin – divided in the 17th century into the French territory of Saint-Martin and the Dutch territory of Sint Maarten – measures just 87 square kilometers (34 square miles). Its 80,000 residents are a vibrant ethnic mix descended mainly from Africa, Europe and Asia. The two sides of the island share a creole language that draws heavily on English vocabulary.

The French part of St. Martin is similar to other French holdings in the Caribbean in that its white minority is generally wealthier than its black majority. Because France bans the collection of data on race, there are no statistics to show how much wealthier.

It began as a colony whose economy was fueled by African slaves. But after slavery was abolished in 1848, Tin said, “there were no reparations for the slaves, only for the slave owners,” so the former slaves won freedom but remained destitute. “The economy is now based on tourism but it is still poor. The wages are significantly lower than the mainland France.”

The government is not the only one being accused of racial bias in the wake of the storm. Giraud said French television reports on the devastation focused disproportionately on white people.

“When I saw the pictures, I was shocked,” Giraud said. “In the coverage I saw, the victims were mostly white tourists, or white French mainlanders. But the poorest are always the first victims.”

French president Emmanuel Macron is flying to the islands on Tuesday. Lots of luck at that town meeting, Mr. President.

Racist babies? Infants prefer to learn from adults of their own skin color, study says

Another academic study blows up the “race is a social construct” nonsense theory that liberals love. We’re not “one race, the human race.” Race is real. Even babies know it.

RT.com

Babies who aren’t old enough to walk or talk still manage to exhibit racial bias, according to a new study. The research found that infants prefer to learn from adults who share their skin color.
As part of the study, researchers from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) and the University of Toronto – along with collaborators from the US, UK, France and China – gave infants a series of videos to watch.

In each video, a female adult looked at one of the four corners of the screen. In some videos, an animal image appeared in the direction she had looked. In other films, an animal image appeared at a non-looked at location.

The results showed that the infants followed the gaze of members of their own race more than they followed the gaze of members of other races.

“This occurred when the faces were slightly unreliable, as they are in the natural environment…” a press release from the University of Toronto states. “This result suggests that, under uncertainty, infants are biased to learn information from own-race adults as opposed to other-race adults.”

Infants under the age of six months were not found to show such bias, according to the study, which was published in the journal Child Development on Monday.

The findings follow a separate study which was conducted by the same researchers and published in the journal Developmental Science in January.

In that study, the researchers played a sequence of videos for three- to 10-month infants. The films depicted female adults with a neutral facial expression.

Before viewing each face, infants heard a music clip. They then participated in one of four music-face combinations: happy music followed by own-race faces; sad music followed by own-race faces; happy music followed by other-race faces; and sad music followed by other-race faces.

The research found that infants aged six- to nine-months looked longer at own-race faces when paired with happy music as opposed to sad music. They looked longer at other-race faces when paired with sad music compared to with happy music.

“Results showed that after six months of age, infants begin to associate own-race faces with happy music and other-race faces with sad music,” the press release states.

As with the first study, infants under the age of six months were not found to have the same bias.

Dr. Kang Lee, a professor at OISE’s Jackman Institute of Child Study and the lead author of both pieces of research, said the findings of both studies are “significant for many reasons.”

“The results show that race-based bias already exists around the second half of a child’s first year. This challenges the popular view that race-based bias first emerges only during the preschool years,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dr. Naiqi (Gabriel) Xiao, first author of the two papers and a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University, said the findings are notable because they contradict the belief that racial bias is associated with negative experiences a person may have had with other-race individuals. In other words, the children in the study were simply too young to have memories of such experiences.

Pointing to previous studies which indicate that many babies typically experience 90 percent of own-race faces, Lee said that racial interactions during infancy may influence our perceptions about race in adulthood.

“These findings thus point to the possibility that aspects of racial bias later in life may arise from our lack of exposure to other-race individuals in infancy,” he said.

Lee concluded that it is important to identify the starting point of racial bias in order to find ways of preventing it.

Tucker Carlson interview the amiable Dr. Kang Lee in this youtube clip. Tucker gives Dr. Lee a bit of a hard time, but Dr.Lee is NOT one of Tucker’s liberal idiots that he loves to destroy.

Interestingly, dogs are racist too, but only toward blacks. I wish academics would do a study on that.

Entitled Muzzie Making a Stink About Request by Airport Security to Remove Hijab

AGHNIA ADZKIA. IT’S ALL ABOUT HER “RIGHTS.”

Muh discrimination.

A Muslim student is asked by the nice airport security lady to remove her head scarf.

Her response? DISCRIMINATION!

metro.co.uk

A woman was told by airport security that she was not allowed to board when she tried to get on her plane to London – because she was wearing a hijab.

The student refused to remove her headscarf after watching nuns walk through without being asked to remove their habits.

Aghnia Adzkia claims she was discriminated against by Italian airport staff.

The Indonesian citizen filmed her experience at Ciampino Airport in the Italian capital of Rome.

The security official can be heard saying: ‘You are not safe.

‘You could hide something in your hair. If you don’t take it off, we do not know if there’s something inside, okay? You are not safe for us.’

She had refused to take off her hijab on principle claiming she was being unfairly targeted.

The Goldsmith university student claims a male security officer then dragged her out of the security area in ‘indecent way’ grabbing her bag and shouting at her to be quiet.

THE NICE ITALIAN SECURITY LADY PUT SAFETY FIRST.

Speaking to MailOnline, Ms Adzkia said: ‘I completely understand about what is going in the world lately. I stand against terrorism and that’s not Islam.

Ms Adzkia can be seen repeatedly demanding to see the law stating that the hijab must be removed at an airport security check.

‘Yet, what I’ve experienced in Rome was shocking, the way they treated me indecently has shown discrimination. I understand if it is for security reason, but why did they not give me a second to read the law?’

Ms Adzkia alerted Facebook friends to the incident in a post that went viral, however it has since been taken down.

She wrote: ‘I wanted to prove to them that I have nothing to hide and that I am not a terrorist.

‘In the meantime, I saw two nuns wearing headscarves, but they weren’t asked to take them off.

‘Is this what you call fair treatment and respect? Where are my human rights?’

Another hijab-wearing woman, Aisyah Allamanda, said Ms Adzkia should have agreed to remove her headscarf.

The official at the Indonesian Embassy said: ‘The numerous times I’ve flown out of Rome’s airport, I also experienced the same kind of security check as I also happen to wear a hijab.

‘The same applies to others who wear the hijab at Rome KBRI, female Muslims believe that they can’t take off their headscarves in public so they are provided a private room for a female officer to carry out the check.

‘If we refuse, I can understand if the security officer acts aggressively towards us.’

DANGEROUS TERRORISTS. TAKE OFF THOSE NUN’S HABITS.

Leaked Twitter Shadowban List Shows Bias Against Truth, Conservatives
