‘I won’t devote my life to a**holes’: French mayor threatens to quit after Le Pen wins region

Liberty Fighters UK

Daniel Delomez, the mayor of Annezin in the Pas-de-Calais commune of northern France, vented his anger over Marine Le Pen gaining 38 percent of the votes in the region, warning he may resign because he “doesn’t want to dedicate life to as*holes.”
Delomez, from the Socialist Party, has been the town’s mayor for almost a decade – since 2008 – and slammed the latest election outcome as “catastrophic,” speaking to the local newspaper L’Avenir de l’Artois.

“It’s likely that I will resign because I don’t want to devote my life to as*holes,” the mayor said, as quoted by the media outlet.

DANIEL DELOMEZ.

Over the past 24 hours, these words posted on the newspaper’s official Twitter account have been retweeted over 7,500 times, and liked over 6,100 times.

Opinions are divided, with apparent Le Pen supporters urging the mayor to go ahead and quit, saying things like: “If (sic) YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS voted for Le Pen, maybe you missed something.”

Another user said, “I suggest that all the locals in Annezin come forward with a complaint against this one, for his lack of respect towards the residents.”

Others cheered the mayor’s rant, saying, “Bravo,” “A superb punchline,” “Send flowers to this man,” and “He is my idol.”

Le Pen, of the far-right National Front, led with over 38 percent of the vote in the Pas-de-Calais department, where Annezin is located, too. Far-left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon came in second with 19 percent.

With 97 percent of the votes counted, the first round of the French election saw liberal centrist Emmanuel Macron leading with 23.9 percent of the vote, and Le Pen coming in second with 21.4 percent. The two will meet in a run-off on May 7. The final results of the first round are set to be announced later on Monday.

The results in the north come as the region struggles with the inflow of migrants. Five months after the infamous Calais ‘Jungle’ migrant camp was demolished, 10,000 refugees are dispersed all over France, with thousands setting up tents in major cities, including Paris.

Locals have been quite outspoken, voicing their anger and discontent over hundreds of migrant relocation centers in their towns. In February, around 1,600 people still lived in the streets of the northern city of Dunkirk, RT reported.

Arkansas begins 11-day ‘run’ of executions

LIDELL LEE. DESERVED DEATH JUST FOR UGLY.

The left is desperately trying to outlaw the death penalty in America, even though there are academic studies showing that it has a deterrent effect. Executions should be swift and highly publicized.

The deaths of convicts may be gruesome but how much more gruesome were the deaths of the victims.

Sky News

Ledell Lee was on death row for bludgeoning neighbour Debra Reese to death with a wrench her husband had given her for protection.

Arkansas has carried out its first execution since 2005 – the first of eight which the state had originally planned to carry out by lethal injection over a period of 11 days.

Ledell Lee was pronounced dead at 11.56pm local time on Thursday, four minutes before his death warrant was due to expire.

Last-minute appeals seeking to conduct DNA testing in an attempt to prove his innocence were rejected less than an hour before his death.

The execution process took two minutes, during which Lee lay covered with a sheet, with his arms extended and his head and hands covered with leather straps.

He made no final statement and is reported to have shown no apparent signs of suffering during the execution.

A spokesman for Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, who scheduled the multiple executions, said: “Justice was carried out.”

The 51-year-old was put on death row for the 1993 murder of his neighbour Debra Reese, who Lee struck 36 times with a wheel wrench her husband gave her for protection.

He was arrested less than half-an-hour after she was killed, spending money he had stolen from her. He always claimed his innocence.

BRING BACK OL SPARKY AND FRY ‘EM.

Arkansas officials have been trying to push through the run of executions because the state’s supply of midazolam expires at the end of April and the chances of getting a substitute are slim.

However, last-minute court challenges have derailed three other executions scheduled for this week.

An earlier order halting the use of vercuronium bromide – one of the three drugs used in the state’s lethal injection process – was overturned by the court.

Drug company McKesson Medical Surgical Inc said the drug had been sold to the state for medical purposes, not capital punishment.

The makers of the other two drugs being used in the process – midazolam and potassium chloride – were blocked from intervening in the case.

Two more inmates are set to die on Monday, and one on 27 April. Another inmate scheduled for execution next week has received a stay.

Arkansas dropped plans to execute a second inmate, Stacey Johnson, on the same day. He will now be seeking more DNA tests in the hope of proving his innocence.

The death penalty was reinstated in America in 1976.

Muh holocaust. They’ve killed an innocent man because he’s a Nigger.

Ramzpaul Video: Is it always wrong to hit a girl?

Ramzpaul talks about antifa punch girl Venus Rosales (Emily Rose Marshall, Louise Rosealma) and whether it was OK to hit her.

We’re probably running out of new thoughts on this issue, but if you spend a few minutes listening to ramzpaul’s logic, it may either change your mind or suggest a new thought or two.

Alabama’s Auburn University Cancels Anti-Trump Speech by Richard Spencer

Normally, an anti-Trump speech would be welcome on any college campus in America.

But Richard Spencer is not a man of the left, but a man of the right who supported President Trump until he hit Syria with a barrage of Tomahawk missiles.

Auburn claims it is canceling Spencer’s talk because of threats to public safety. That’s bullsh*t.

On the one hand, it’s not Spencer that has ever threatened anyone. The threat is from the leftist antifa. Giving in to antifa thugs is never a good idea. They’ve beat up Trump supporters before. They tried to disrupt the inauguration.

On the other hand, Spencer is not a white supremacist, but a white identitarian. There is a huge difference. White identity is simply the idea that whites must unite politically to promote their interests in the same way that Chicanos, blacks, and other groups do. White identity is also an intellectual force that defends Western culture and civilization. The university is undoubted afraid that Spencer will make some converts by having a reasoned discussion of his ideas.

Alabama’s Auburn University on Friday canceled a campus speech by Richard Spencer, a white U.S. nationalist best known for drawing Nazi-like salutes at a party to celebrate President Donald Trump’s election last year, citing safety concerns.

Auburn said it decided to drop Spencer’s visit scheduled for Tuesday evening “based on legitimate concerns and credible evidence that it will jeopardize the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors.”

The university, located in the city of the same name in Alabama, did not elaborate on its safety concerns, and school officials could not be reached for further comment.

Spencer, 38, said he was incensed over the cancellation and considered it an attack on his right to free speech.

“I’m absolutely disgusted,” Spencer told Reuters. “That’s the only way to put it.”

Spencer, who leads the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist and nationalist think tank, said his organization paid about $700 to rent a room at the university for the speech and spent an additional $2,200 for security.

Spencer said Auburn was aware of the violent threats and protests that typically follow him to his speaking engagements.

When Spencer spoke at Texas A&M University in December, some 1,000 people gathered in protest. In January, he was hit in the face by a protestor during a televised interview in Washington.

Auburn had been criticized on social media by students and parents who said the university was supporting hate speech by allowing Spencer to visit. In response, the university said in a statement on Wednesday that it strongly deplored Spencer’s views, but it would uphold his right to speak.

After the cancellation, Spencer said he would give the speech at another location in Auburn on Tuesday. He did not say where.

Spencer said his talk would touch on free speech issues but mainly focus on his newfound opposition to Trump.

Spencer and other white nationalists soured on the Republican president after the recent U.S. bomb attacks in Syria and Afghanistan. “We are a true oppositional force,” Spencer said.

An outspoken supporter of Trump in the 2016 campaign, Spencer rose from relative obscurity in the days after the Nov. 8 election. Widely circulated video footage showed some Trump supporters giving Nazi-style salutes to Spencer during a gathering in Washington to celebrate the Republican candidate’s victory.

In an interview with the New York Times shortly after the incident, Trump condemned the conference organized by Spencer.

Those Nazi style salutes referred to in the article were few in number and Spence did not himself perform any kind of salute. Meanwhile, there’s not a word in this biased, slanted article that mentions that the antifa often give Communist clinched fist salutes.

When they’re not punching somebody out.

DO YOU EVER HEAR ABOUT BERNIE SANDERS MAKING THE COMMUNIST SALUTE?

College Student Calls for End to “Sci-Fi Racism”

The following essay by a white female college student was published on her university’s student website. It’s an example of how college students are indoctrinated to look for what she calls racism everywhere.

In a nutshell her thesis is that nonwhite creatures should never be portrayed in science fiction writing. I assume that she would have no objection, though, to black female Lieutenant Uhura in Star Trek. It seems her gripe is blacks portrayed as violent, evil creatures.

Science fiction writers typically struggle with the problem of writing a believable world that is not our own.

The most important thing to do, though, is not write an alien species that is comparable to any human race that is not white.

While writing science fiction and fantasy is challenging, it is important to recognize when the stories told are problematic. It is also important to recognize when the authors promoting problematic stories are testing the water.

Veronica Roth, the author of the Divergent series, recently came out with the first novel in an upcoming series called “Carve the Mark”.

The novel is about war between special species who are born with special powers. One of the species is coded to be representative of a white elite society while another species is coded as dark skinned, brutal and not civilized.

I do not have an issue with alien species representing races we are already familiar with. Representation is important and rare in science fiction series, so the idea of representation is awesome.

However, my issue lies here: the species coded as white is represented as being more important and more civilized than the nomadic species that has dark skin.

The nomadic species kidnapped one of the members of the elite society, which starts the main conflict of the novel. This story is recreating colonial narratives that actually happened.

Not only does Roth code species as being superior to the other and more elite, she also taught her readers that having a debilitating chronic pain is a gift.

When writing the novel, Roth stated that she is surrounded by friends who suffer from chronic pain and wanted to explore this. However, the chronic pain is described as a gift because the women afflicted with it can inflict pain upon others whenever they want to.

Again, reading a novel about a protagonist who suffers from chronic pain but perseveres would be amazing, yet Roth has missed the mark here.

Roth is by no means the only author to do this in a science fiction or fantasy novel. It happens too often.

On the bright side, though, many authors have tackled race and racism in a positive light. Octavia Butler and Ursula le Guin are both female science fiction authors who have not disappointed me.

I’ve tackled the topic of representation and who can write what in a previous column but it remains relevant. Representation in fiction novels and in real life is extremely important in the political climate where people do not feel comfortable in their own skins.

Racism in the science fiction community is not only within the novels, but also toward the authors. The publishing science fiction community does not steadily publish works by black authors.

Out of more than 2,000 stories published in 2015, only 38 of them were written by black authors.

I had a hard time reading the articles that exposed “Carve the Mark” because I am a fan of Roth’s writing. Sometimes you like an author and then they write something you can’t support so you no longer feel you can support them either.

I’ve included a photo of the author below. Her essay was excerpted at Free Republic forums, where the criticism of it and her are brief and revealing.

As one of her critics notes, it’s not racism if it’s true. Another notes that all the burglars on ads for home security systems are white.

Basically, the consensus, which I agree with, is that the essay is silly, shallow, and representative of poor quality virtue signaling.

I hope that at some point this student realizes just how stupid and indoctrinated she comes across as.

MIRANDA GARBACIAK. BETTER TAKE A CLASS IN HOW TO WRITE.

United Airlines Ban on Girls in Yoga Pants Draws Feminist Outrage

Yoga pants show camel toe and ass crack. Should companies allow women to wear leggings (tights, yoga pants) to work? Are they considered professional attire?

United Airlines forced three very young girls who were children of employees flying free to cover up. In effect, the company’s position is that the girls were representing United and should follow United workplace rules.

But feminist outrage has risen over the incident. Sexually arousing men and boys seems to be the feminist game, although women claim there’s nothing more comfortable than yoga pants.

MSN

United Airlines barred two women from boarding a flight on Sunday morning and required a child to change into a dress after a gate agent decided the leggings they were wearing were inappropriate. That set off waves of anger on social media, with users criticizing what they called an intrusive, sexist policy, but the airline maintained its support for the gate agent’s decision.

The two women, who were about to board a flight to Minneapolis, were turned away at the gate at Denver International Airport. United doubled down on that position, defending the decision in a series of tweets on Sunday.

The incident was first reported on Twitter by Shannon Watts, a passenger at the airport who was waiting to board a flight to Mexico. In a telephone interview from Mexico on Sunday afternoon, Ms. Watts said she noticed two visibly upset teenage girls leaving the gate next to hers. Both were wearing leggings.

Ms. Watts went over to the neighboring gate and saw a “frantic” family with two young girls, one of whom was also wearing leggings, engaged in a tense exchange with a gate agent who told them, “I don’t make the rules, I just enforce them.”

Ms. Watts said the girl’s mother told her the two teenagers had just been turned away because the gate agent said their pants were not appropriate travel attire. The woman had a dress in her carry-on bag that the child was able to pull on over her pants, and the family boarded the flight.

Ms. Watts judged that the two women who were barred from boarding were in their “young teens” and the girl who changed into a dress was 10 or 11.

Ms. Watts described the situation in a series of tweets before her flight to Mexico took off. By the time she landed her tweets had been shared widely, often accompanied by sharp criticism directed at the airline.

United’s public relations team did not respond to a phone call and an email seeking comment on Sunday, but the company seemed to confirm Ms. Watts’s account in a response to her on Twitter, which did little to mollify the concerns of its critics.

In a series of dozens of tweets, the company said the incident was not simply the result of an overzealous gate agent. Instead, it said United Airlines reserved the right to deny service to anyone its employees deemed to be inappropriately dressed.

“In our Contract of Carriage, Rule 21, we do have the right to refuse transport for passengers who are barefoot or not properly clothed,” the company tweeted.

Furthermore, the company said the young women it turned away on Sunday were “pass travelers” — United employees or their dependents who fly standby “on a space available basis,” it explained. It described the arrangement as a “company benefit.”

“There is a dress code for pass travelers as they are representing UA when they fly,” the company tweeted. It added, “Casual attire is allowed as long as it looks neat and is in good taste for the local environment.”

Few critics appeared to be satisfied by that explanation, which also did little to de-escalate a perilous public relations situation for the company. United was the target of scores of angry and mocking tweets on Sunday, including from social media savvy celebrities like the model Chrissy Teigen and the actor LeVar Burton.

By Sunday afternoon, the company’s Twitter account was engaged in a tense back-and-forth with the Academy Award winning actress Patricia Arquette, who posted dozens of angry tweets about the situation.

Employees running United’s Twitter account spent the day walking a public relations tightrope: explaining to angry social media users why the company was not wrong to bar the young women from boarding, while reassuring potential customers that they would not also be barred if they showed up in leggings.

People like to be comfortable when they fly, Ms. Watts said, and leggings and yoga pants have become pretty standard casual attire for women.

“I’m pretty sure yoga pants are a thing,” Ms. Watts said. “They’re part of modern America. They’re a staple, a go-to clothing item.”

I’ll bet the pedophiles lurking on that flight were very upset with United for making those girls cover up. So, I wonder if some of this feminist outrage can be traced back to pedos.

Good News: “Racist” Congressman Steve King Maintains Support Among Constituents

As this post was being put together, I noticed that a story on Breitbart written by immigration hawk Tom Tancredo claims that Steve King is being targeted for character assassination by the (((left.)))

The following story from King’s local paper explains how he maintains popularity with his people in spite of the effort to destroy him.

Times-Republican

Outside his rural congressional district stretching over 39 Iowa counties, conservative U.S. Rep. Steve King’s stream of inflammatory comments generate outrage and condemnation, but back home they rate little more than a shrug.

“That’s just Steve being Steve,” was how Tom Reiter put it, looking into a mirror while getting his hair cut Thursday in Carroll. “He doesn’t pull any punches.”

It’s been that way since King, a former construction company owner and state legislator, was elected to Congress in 2002. It’s still true, days after King tweeted his support for a far-right Dutch politician who opposes immigration and added, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” Later in a radio interview, King responded to a question about changing demographics that could mean whites will no longer make up a U.S. majority by predicting, “Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens.”

If Iowans love Steve King, then I love Iowa.
