The propaganda war is in full swing this fine Saturday afternoon.
Memes are still a key weapon we have to use in our battle for freedom. I expect people will disagree on whether this kind of material helps or hurts. I think it helps, but you can disagree and it won’t hurt my feelings.
Spencer was responding to Melania Trump:
The Donald weighed in too:
Today’s state of emergency in Virginia merits more than one post. This one is the first.
Microchip is monitoring in real time on Twitter the best alt-right insights into today’s victory in Charlottesville. His extensive bot network gives him access to thousands of Tweets an hour.
Not only did we get the attention of the POTUS, but also the FLOTUS.
We will be using Twitter to push back against the MSM, united in the lie pushed by an enemy government, that we were the thugs. Today’s events show that the USA is an antiwhite police state.

Microchip’s response to Ingraham:
Finally, cuck Paul Joseph Watson:
And Microchip’s response:
The story of a girl in a miniskirt would seem an unlikely top news item of the day, but when the girl is a Saudi, it’s going to draw attention. When I put up the original story about the unidentified girl, she was still free. That was yesterday.
The Saudi girl in a miniskirt has been arrested.
This would be none of our business except for the fact that (((our enemies))) on the left want to import tens of millions of these primitives into the United States and Europe where they will try to dictate every aspect of our lives according to their religious beliefs.
Excerpt from CBS News
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Police in Saudi Arabia have arrested a young woman who wore a miniskirt in public and posted the video online, sparking backlash from people who say she flagrantly violated the kingdom’s conservative Islamic dress code.
The woman, whose name was not given, was detained by police in the capital, Riyadh, for wearing “immodest clothes” that contradicted the country’s conservative Islamic dress code, state media reported Tuesday. Police referred her case to the public prosecutor, according to the official Twitter account of state-run TV channel al-Ekhbariya.
The young Saudi woman drew attention over the weekend when she shared on Snapchat a video of herself walking in a historic village north of the capital wearing a miniskirt and crop top, and showing her hair. In the now-viral video, the woman is filmed walking around the desert region of Najd, where many of Saudi Arabia’s most conservative tribes and families are from.
CBS News has not confirmed the authenticity of the following video clip — which has been posted on Twitter — but it appears to show the woman in a miniskirt and black crop top as many have described:
Social media is wildly popular in Saudi Arabia as a space to vent frustrations and gauge public opinion. The outcry against the video and the woman’s subsequent arrest reveal how powerful and widespread conservative views are in the kingdom, despite recent moves by Saudi Arabia to modernize and loosen some rules.
The country’s 31-year-old heir to the throne, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has pushed for greater openings for entertainment in part to appease the youth, who are active on social media and can bypass government censors online. More than half of Saudi Arabia’s population is under 25.
The government announced last week that girls would be allowed for the first time to play sports in public school and have access to physical education classes. The powers of the kingdom’s religious police have also been curtailed, and they are officially no longer allowed to arrest people.
Despite these moves, strict gender segregation rules and other restrictions on women remain in place. Women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia and cannot obtain a passport or travel abroad without a male relative’s permission.
After the woman’s video surfaced, some Saudis expressed alarm, saying that Twitter was being used as a tool to out other citizens.
Ibrahim al-Munayif, a Saudi writer with more than 41,000 followers on Twitter, wrote on his official account that allowing people to disobey the law leads to chaos.
“Just like we call on people to respect the laws of countries they travel to, people must also respect the laws of this country,” he wrote.
Others defended her by posting images from President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia in May, in which first lady Melania Trump and his daughter Ivanka, though modestly dressed in higher necklines and longer sleeves, shunned wearing a head cover or the abaya.
Ivanka Trump’s blonde tresses and attire sparked a Twitter hashtag during Mr. Trump’s visit, with Saudi males commenting on her looks and referring to Mr. Trump as Abu Ivanka, meaning Ivanka’s father.
If Saudi Arabia had no oil, it would be nothing to the West.
What happens next to Saudi girl? Will she disappear? Be beheaded? Stoned to death?
We may never know.
American President Donald Trump is having a great visit with his new buddy, French President Emmanuel Macron.
Trump has described Monsieur Macron’s wife, Brigitte, as “beautiful.”
What a charming, gentlemanly thing to say.
Even the usually dour Melania, along for the visit, must be having fun.
PRESIDENT Donald Trump was captured complimenting the French president’s wife’s body in video posted by the French government’s Facebook account.
The footage shows Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, and their wives chatting after their tour of the museums at Les Invalides.
Trump at one point turns to Brigitte Macron and tells her: “You’re in such good shape.”
He repeats the observation to the French president before turning back to the French first lady, and remarking: “Beautiful.”
Brigitte Macron was her husband’s former high school teacher and their relationship has drawn international attention because of their age difference.
But many have denounced the comments as sexist, noting that the Macrons’ age difference is identical to that of Donald and Melania Trump.
In a news conference, Trump saluted America’s “unbreakable” bond with France.
He made the gushing comments during a news conference in Paris today as part of a trip to France for the Bastille Day celebrations.
Setting aside the fluff, it’s a dazzling development to see Macron take so well to the older Trump. If he thinks of Trump as an older brother or confidant, then so much the better. Everyone had Macron pegged as a politically correct liberal, but so far he’s showing signs of independence from Angela Merkel, who must be jealous at what’s unfolding in Paris.

President Donald Trump, his wife, Melania, and daughter Ivanka, arrived in Poland to a warm welcome on July 5 in advance of the G20 Summit.
Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, was also along on the trip, which was the president’s second foreign trip.
According to NBC News, Trump was “greeted by U.S. Ambassador to Poland Paul Jones and his wife, as well as Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Witold Waszczykowski and Minister of State Krzysktof Szczerski, before loading into the motorcade.”
Melania Trump wore a green coat with scarf. Ivanka Trump wore a red suit.
The president was expected to give a speech to the Polish people on July 6 in Krasinski Square, NBC reported, likely commemorating Polish courage during World War II. The square commemorates “a 1944 anti-Nazi uprising, one of the country’s most important historical chapters,” Politico reports.
Trump is expected to receive a warm welcome in Poland, which is run by a “populist, nationalist” government, according to The Washington Post. The Post reported that Trump’s choice of Poland to start his foreign trip is regarded as a “snub” at the EU.
The Polish government is conservative, and Trump chose Poland as his first stop over “more powerful American allies like Germany, France or Britain,” The New York Times reported. The Polish will be watching for whether Trump “reaffirms the United States’ commitment to respond to an attack on another NATO member,” according to The New York Times.
After the Polish trip, Trump will head to Hamburg, Germany for the G20 summit. There, Trump will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with whom there have been tensions. He also may sit down for a much anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Among the topics on the agenda at the G20: “Trade, climate and migration,” according to CNN.
In contrast to the warm reception in Warsaw, Trump is expected to find protests in Hamburg.
“The United States made some of the worst Trade Deals in world history,” Trump tweeted before leaving for Poland. “Why should we continue these deals with countries that do not help us?”
Live stream from Poland:
Even CNN can’t hide the warmth for the United States that Poles are likely to be feeling during the Trump administration.
Trump, who will meet with Putin Friday after visiting Poland, will deliver an address to the Polish people on Thursday, as well as meet with Duda and speak to the leaders at the Three Seas Initiative, a project that aims to unite Eastern Europe through energy infrastructure.
Trump may find a partner in his Polish counterpart, though. Duda rose to power in 2015 on the back of nationalist, anti-immigrant sentiment, not dissimilar to Trump’s 2016 election win. Both Trump and Duda have been publicly skeptical of international organizations, with the Polish president worrying European Union diplomats with some fractures he is causing in Poland’s relationship with the union.
And local media have been reporting that Duda and his conservative Law and Justice Party promised people close to Trump sizable crowds for Trump’s visit, particularly for his speech to the Polish people at the Warsaw Uprising Monument, a memorial in honor of Poles who rose up to fight Nazis in 1944.
