Trump and Zuckerberg in Dead Heat for 2020 Election, Says Poll

Business Insider

A new survey pit Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg against President Donald Trump in a 2020 presidential contest, and the results showed a tight theoretical race.

The Tuesday poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Zuckerberg, pegged in the survey as the Democratic presidential nominee, in a dead heat against Trump at 40% support each. The remaining 20% of respondents were unsure.

Zuckerberg won the support of 69% of voters who said they cast a ballot for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and 9% of those who said they voted for Trump. On the flip side, Trump received the backing of 85% of Trump voters and 5% of Clinton voters in the matchup.

Zuckerberg’s favorability rating was found to be below water. Twenty-four percent of respondents held favorable views of Zuckerberg, while 29% viewed the Facebook billionaire unfavorably. Another 47% were unsure of their feelings toward Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg, who is traveling across the US on a tour that has led many to believe he may be seeking a future in politics, has insisted that he is not taking a look at the presidency. He has said his nationwide tour is instead about getting “a broader perspective” on the country.

The Tuesday PPP poll surveyed 836 registered voters from Friday to Monday. The margin of error was 3.4 percentage points.

The location of the contretemp featured in these videos is Converse, Texas, which is a bedroom suburb northeast of San Antonio, Texas.

In the first video, the so-called lady throws a large metal tea dispenser at the manager, who is also a Mexican, judging from his accent. He takes off his shirt and dares the agitated woman to attack him.

In the second video, the disturbance continues. In both the videos, you can see the woman’s teen son sticking his nose into the situation.

Clever Young Woman “Steals” Her Bike Back from Thief Who Advertised It on Facebook

BRITISH JENNI ASKED THE POLICE TO RECOVER HER BIKE, BUT THEY REFUSED. SO SHE TOOK MATTERS INTO HER OWN HANDS.

Jenni’s story is the stuff of legends. I assume the POS bastard who stole her bike was a Paki or an African, both of which infest England like so many cockroaches. Both groups are bad about stealing things.

What Jenni did may be foolish, but we can’t let the bad guys win.

That said, taking action like this in the States would be more dangerous than doing it in England.

Telegraph

Bristol cyclist has “stolen” her bike from a thief who advertised it for sale on Facebook.

Jenni Morton-Humphreys, 30, turned the tables on the thief with an ingenious sting, even though she was advised against doing so by the police.

Ms Morton-Humphreys had appealed for help by posting a picture of the stolen bike on Facebook and appealing for help.

A fellow cyclist scoured Facebook’s for sale pages and found the same bike on display.

The good samaritan and Ms Morton-Humphreys devised a cunning plan, which entailed offering to buy the bike from the unsuspecting vendor.

Having found the bike she asked the police to accompany her on the mission and arrest the culprit – but the invitation was declined.

Undeterred she and a friend approached the vendor and arranged a meeting.

“I pretended to be interested and asked silly questions about the bike,” she said. “I said the saddle was too high, and asked if I could get on it to test it out,” she told the Bristol Post.

“I made sure I had nothing on me, no possessions at all apart from the stuff in my hands – and they were a cigarette packet and a set of keys. I handed them to this guy as I got on the bike and said ‘here, hold my stuff’.

She then asked for a test ride. The seller agreed and Ms Morton-Humphreys pedalled away furiously.

To add to her joy, the bike had been smartened up ahead of the sale with even the front light being fixed.

The police were either too politically correct or too cowardly to help a damsel in distress? The Hell with them.

Teen Vogue Sparks Backlash with Tutorial Promoting Anal Sex for Minors

Sodomites are upset with a Christian mum expressing the opinion that a magazine aimed at 11 to 17 year old girls should not be promoting anal sex. Look up anal prolapse and you’ll see she’s right on medical grounds. As to morality, well I don’t recall the Bible endorsing sodomy. Do you?

Patheos

The Activist Mommy, a Christian homeschooling mother of 10, is butthurt about an anal sex advice article appearing in Teen Vogue.

Elizabeth Johnston, aka The Activist Mommy, released a Facebook video earlier this week condemning Teen Vogue for offering a sex education article on anal sex. In her video, an angry Johnston burns an issue of Teen Vogue while encouraging others to boycott the magazine.
In the video, which has been viewed over 2.9 million times, Johnson asks viewers to join her in her campaign to have the publication removed from “your local gas stations, your local libraries and your local grocery stores.”

Clearly Johnston is angry, but is her anger justified?
In the Teen Vogue article in question, “Anal Sex: What You Need To Know,” sex educator and feminist activist Gigi Engle gives readers the facts about anal sex in a non-judgmental and educational context, answering questions that many may have, but are uncomfortable talking about or asking. The article begins:

When it comes to your body, it’s important that you have the facts. Being in the dark is not doing your sexual health or self-understanding any favors.

With that sentiment in mind, we’re here to lay it all out for you when it comes to anal sex.

In short, the article is a straightforward and honest account of the ins and outs of anal intercourse, and good information for the curious.

However, the article makes Johnston furious. In her video the angry activist mommy declares:

Teen Vogue is garbage. The editors minds are in the garbage. The author’s minds are in the garbage. Don’t let your kids read garbage.
There is a particular irony in Johnston’s outrage, given the urban legend confirmed by anecdotal evidence that many “good Christian women” engage in anal sex to protect their vaginal virginity – aka The Loophole:

Bottomline: The Activist Mommy is a magazine burning, attention seeking clown – another ignorant religious extremist willing to deny sex education advice to others in order to promote her demented, conservative Christian, puritanical agenda.

Wow! I don’t think there’s any possibility of finding common ground with sodomites when this type of attitude is expressed. Sexually explicit information that promotes to children what used to be called a “crime against nature” and was illegal shouldn’t have to be debated. It should be something that everyone agrees on.

Michigan official stands by call for killing of all Muslims

HERO JEFF SIETING. HAS ISSUES WITH MUZZIES.

Some folks are upset with a small town official in Michigan because of his opinions about how to deal with the Muslim threat.

Jeff Sieting reminds me of Ann Barnhardt. It may be my imagination, but I believe I’ve heard her call for nuking the Middle East, which he has done.

Like Ann, Jeff is NOT apologizing for his political incorrectness.

Bravo!

ABC News

A local official in northern Michigan refuses to apologize for sharing Facebook posts calling for the killing of “every last Muslim” and for nuclear weapons to be used on the world’s 10-largest Muslim-majority cities.

Jeff Sieting, the village president in Kalkaska, which is about 230 miles (370 kilometers) northwest of Detroit, said Monday that he doesn’t owe anyone an apology over his Facebook posts, the Record-Eagle of Traverse City reported ( http://bit.ly/2uaNYKP ).

The posts were discovered by area native Cindy Anderson, who along with others unsuccessfully sought an apology last month. They’re now looking to remove Sieting from office.

“You ran for office to represent all of the people of this community, not just the white, non-Muslim ones,” Anderson said to Sieting. “You were supposed to represent all of your constituents.”

One post Sieting shared said Muslims are destructive and “there is simply no place for them in our world.” The post also called for using nuclear weapons against the 10 largest Muslim-majority cities, as well as pilgrimage sites.

Sieting said his comments are protected by the First Amendment and that those trying to oust him from office are only doing so because they oppose President Donald Trump.

“I don’t expect everyone to see things the way I do,” he said.

Sieting has also come under fire for a sign on his hotel, Hotel Sieting, that asks citizens to pray for Trump. That dispute began before Sieting’s Facebook posts were discovered.

Local residents and others who helped create the Facebook group “Kalkaska Residents for Peace” are determining how to move forward after Sieting’s refusal to apologize. Anderson said the group of more than 150 people are looking at a potential recall and finding someone to run against him in 2018.

Joyce Golden, a county resident who supports Sieting, said she believes the official has the right to post whatever he wants on his personal Facebook page.

“If you don’t want to read it, get off of (his Facebook page),” she said. “From what I do know, you are a very honest, faithful, hardworking man and I thank you for that. I hope you continue and stand your ground for your beliefs. I don’t believe he has to represent everybody.”

Woman Professor Claims Alt-Right Memes Dangerous to Democracy

A woman professor, Sophia A. McClennen, laments the legacy media’s loss of its monopoly on the production of propaganda.

She claims that alt-right Internet memes, such as the Trump Tweet showing him body slamming CNN, are dangerous. That’s pseudointellectual nonsense coming from a woman professor who will probably receive a raise and promotion for writing this shallow piece.

I’ve excerpted about a third of it.

Excerpt from Salon

Forget fake news — alt-right memes could do more damage to democracy

As BuzzFeed notes, there is “a sprawling new universe of far-right internet personalities who have aligned themselves with a ‘new right’ or ‘alt-right’ or ‘new far-right’ political youth movement in the US.” This group is interested in moving their trolling into the real world.

Whether on Reddit or YouTube or another form of social media these alt-right rants share a few key beliefs. As Malia Rolt explains in a piece on YouTube and the alt-right, those posting right-wing hate speech “all believe that the media is untrustworthy and political correctness has gone too far, and see advocacy for equality for all as a threat to freedom of speech.”

The issue of freedom of speech and social media, of course, is a tricky issue since all of the platforms have rules and restrictions over the sort of content they allow. And yet, there is some evidence to suggest that the application of those rules may indeed favor aggressive speech by the right more than from other quarters.

For instance, a report from ProPublica suggests that Facebook’s internal rules for censoring hate speech is biased to favor both the right and celebrity users. In contrast, “Facebook users who don’t mince words in criticizing racism and police killings of racial minorities say that their posts are often taken down.”

They compare two posts. One by a U.S. congressman who wrote a post after a terrorist attack in London that called for the slaughter of “radicalized” Muslims. “Hunt them, identify them, and kill them,” declared U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, a Louisiana Republican. “Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.” And one by Boston poet and Black Lives Matter activist DiDi Delgado: “All white people are racist. Start from this reference point, or you’ve already failed.”

Delgado’s post was removed and her Facebook account was disabled for seven days. Higgins’ post was untouched. Such practices certainly suggest deep political biases in the ways that Facebook censors users.

All of this combines to suggest that, while each social media platform has a different identity and different content rules, there is increasing evidence that right-wing hate speech is growing in power and force across the major social media platforms and into everyday life.

What this week’s Trump Twitter war against the mainstream news media teaches us is that CNN should be worried — but not about Trump’s attacks, rather about the fact that an increasing number of U.S. citizens are forming their political ideas based on alt-right rants, and not on anything that even remotely resembles information.

Microchip has been banned from Twitter over 100 times. He’s far from alone. Recall that MILO was permanently banned and has never come back. Microchip gets back on via trickery until Twitter discovers he’s back, when they ban him again.

The point is that the rules do not favor the alt-right. Another point is that the media is obviously not trustworthy.

McClennan’s essay starts with the wrong premise. The only way to break the media monopoly is through alternative media, citizen journalism, taking matters one Tweet, comment, and blog post at a time.

The “fake news” phrase has come into widespread use for a reason and if the professor doesn’t acknowledge that, she’s either stupid or lying.

Woman Threatened After Urinating on U.S. Flag on Facebook to Celebrate 4th of July

EMILY LANCE. PEES STANDING UP.

I assume the America-hating leftie in this story, Emily Lance, is a Jew. In my experience that last name is Jewish.

BBC

A woman who shared a video of herself urinating on an American flag has asked that people stop targeting her family, saying they do not support her actions.

Emily Lance received online threats of murder and rape after posting the video during Independence Day celebrations.

Her account is no longer on Facebook but she previously posted that her father and his workplace had also been “targeted”, reports say.
Desecrating a US flag is not illegal due to strong freedom of speech laws.

In the video, Ms Lance is seen standing over a toilet on which a US flag is draped, and urinating on it with the aid of a device that allows women to do so standing up.

She captioned it with: “F*** your nationalism. F*** your country. F*** your stupid f****** flag”.

Later she made a plea for her opponents not to “take your anger out on the wrong people”, saying no-one in her family “agrees with my shenanigans”.

“They’ve got nothing to do with my decisions,” she continued.
She did not explain how her father and his workplace had been “targeted”.

“What don’t you people understand? You’re celebrating freedom while damning me for doing the same. You can’t have it both ways,” she said.

“Go Girl” allows women to pee standing up:
