Bringing over from prior thread:

RG - “feminists” will not get on board there because the “white girls” abused are all working class “tarts” and therefore expendable.

These girls were/are sacrificial lambs given over to appease the monster in their midst. (Like handing over your Jews to the Nazis). Robinson and his ilk must be silenced to avoid upsetting that arrangement.

My cousin supplied what I needed, but the govt prohibited me from buying a knife suitable for the job.

WTF is going on in Missouri?

matt - deplorable me

I think the media in the UK and Europe is headed very slowly towards the self censorship one saw in places like Turkey until Erdogan went full Dictator.

When the state dictates censorship we have a problem. Then again, by banning radio hosts, books, etc. the UK has taken the lead in the suppression of contrary ideas. You can buy Mein Kampf but you can't buy Londonistan.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

I have no idea what's going on in Missouri, and that is why I posted that story.

Bondage? Blackmail? Forced oral sex? Stealing records?

Seems like we would have heard about it nationally before now, doesn't it? Maybe the national media was holding it until closer to the election.

I have no idea if the charges are true or fabricated.

About Tommy Robinson, I wrote the wire service yesterday:

There are apparently two different stories about Tommy Robinson.

1) The court gagging, which is reprehensible, and

2) The fact that Tommy Robinson may not be Tommy Robinson at all.

They had ignored the issue yesterday. Today they have a small and peripheral blurb.

Today I wrote:

In the Trump Memorial Day article, [the wire service] wrote:

Trump's somber tone contrasted with a self-promotional tweet earlier Monday in which he said fallen soldiers would be "very proud and happy at how well our country is doing today," citing the economy and low unemployment.

Please explain to me what the earlier Trump tweet that mentions the economy has to do with the coverage of what happened at Arlington.

Why, did AP inserts its opinion that it was “self-promotional”?

Certainly every one -- including Democrats and even journalists -- must be proud and happy at how well the country is doing today.

[The wire service] seems congenitally incapable of writing an article that focuses on a single subject without finding a distant cow patty to drag into the scene so it can step in it.

Your explanation?

Fox News:

Morgan Freeman accuses CNN of 'journalistic malpractice' and demands retraction of harassment report

The CNN article's co-author and sole accuser who went on the record, Chloe Melas, alleged that Freeman, 80, harassed her when she interviewed him for CNN at a press junket for the movie "Going in Style." Freeman has denied sexual wrongdoing but admitted to making some people feel uncomfortable throughout his career.

Attorney Robert M. Schwartz of Irell & Manella is now accusing CNN of defaming his star client.

The letter, which has been obtained by Fox News, states that “if CNN has any decency, or any allegiance to journalistic integrity, it will immediate retract the article and issue a public apology to Mr. Freeman.”

Eight women told CNN that Freeman made suggestive comments about their appearance and inappropriately touched them in an article that was published on Thursday.

Isn't it more accurate to say "CNN claims that eight women told them..."?

Matt. You left out banning European parliamentarians.

It has gotten so bad that they stop speakers from speaking at speakers corner in Hyde park. Note the caveat (A big caveat) .

"In 1872, an act of parliament set aside this part of Hyde Park for public speaking. Even today, on a Sunday morning, it's not unusual to find crowds gathering at Speakers' Corner to listen to enthusiasts expounding their views. Anyone can turn up unannounced to speak on any subject, as long as the police consider their speeches lawful..."

maryrose,

Why did he have to make a big deal about Trump being a role model? Isn't that a personal decision? He KNEW NBC would feature that comment - he can't be THAT clueless.

You know what? When I was a younger person I did a LOT of things I am not proud of. Are my grandkids not to look at me as a role model because of my youth? What has President Trump said that is racist or misogynistic? He has huge numbers of women in his cabinet. All of the women who have worked for him say he has ttreated them with respect and is a great boss.

I refuse to let people in the press deem him racist because of THEIR interpretations of something he said or did. And to my mind, Romney knows this but cannot help preening in front of the cameras.

You seem to want all of us to be team players, while many GOP elected officials are decidedly NOT.

maryrose, perhaps you have overlooked the obvious.

-- Mitt said what he said knowing that the journalists would focus on the pejorative.

-- The journalists knew they could depend on Mitt for the Trump diss, using their media lens to enlarge the comment as yet another of a thousand cuts.

... I take it back. Perhaps you didn’t overlook the obvious, but chose to ignore it on purpose.

Not sure why you might choose to do it, or do it without knowing you do it.

But, then again, I don’t really care.

Starbucks CEO Blames Trump For ‘Racist Behavior’ Before Closing Stores For Racial Bias Training

The CNN anchor asked Schultz if the rhetoric from the White House was “opening the door to increased overt racist behavior,” to which Shultz responded, in part, “I think the totality of the issue is beyond the White House.”

The anchor asked again, “Has President Trump’s rhetoric, personally, on race exacerbated racism in America?”

“On a personal level, it probably has given license to people to feel as if they can emulate and copy the kind of behavior and language that comes out of this administration,” Schultz said. He continued, “The racial divide and the inequities that exist between people of color and Caucasians in America is a problem that has existed for quite some time…”

CNN asked Schultz what the White House could do to “help close the divide.”

Schultz said, “Put humanity in the center of our conversation, whether it’s immigration, whether it’s trade — all of these things have such rhetoric to [them], and the political class is not helping.”

Apparently michael curry, the episcopal bishop who basically gave a beloved community/mlk sppech at the prince harry/markle wedding before a global audience, did it knowing he already had an even broader group lined up the following week to march thursday evening on the white house with candles. The national press club was lined up for friday.

http://www.reclaimingjesus.org/sites/default/files/downloads/reclaiming_jesus.pdf lays out the agenda and the language about "a dangerous crisis of moral and political leadership at the highest levels of our govt."

So the royals who are supposed to be apolitical provide the platform for global transmission of this transformative communitarian agenda?

The link also complains about "the regular purveying of falsehoods and consistent lying by the nation's highest leaders and moves toward autocratic political leadership and authentic rule."

The agenda docs were created on ash wednesday this year, so recently in light of the anticipated global exposure for curry. jim wallis of sojourners lso signed on.

Good afternoon! Rush just said ABC/Disney has canceled Roseanne's show because of her ValJar tweet.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

maryrose,


You should have known that the Inside Edition tape was a private conversation which occurred years before he ran for the presidency.

That wasn't a gaffe made when he said something during the campaign.

Men say vulgar stuff all of the time. I worked in jobs where I overheard stuff, plus my major was heavily male when I went through college.

He has said NOTHING like that since he was inaugurated, nor during the campaign, as far as I can tell. Tsk-tsking about something said years ago is ridiculous. And my question to Mitt would be "Instead of accepting without question how the media portrays him, can you give us some EXAMPLES?"

What happened with Langford?

Roseanne Barr fired off a missive Tuesday morning that attacked President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American.
Barr used Jarrett’s initials and said “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” The actress was suggesting a connection between Jarrett and the Sunni Islamist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood. Her Planet of the Apes reference was slammed as racist. Barr totally sidestepped the problem by replying “Muslims r NOT a race.” ..
