Maxine Waters' GOP Challenger Just Got Arrested on Felony Charges and Now Conservatives Are Distancing Themselves
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has long been a target of the Right wing due to her vociferous opposition to President Donald Trump.
One of Waters' most vocal opponents, Omar Navarro, ran against the Congresswoman in 2016 and 2018, losing in a landslide both times. He intends to run against her again, but a recent development may have eliminated that possibility.
Tomi Lahren Just Missed a Glaring Double Standard in Her Tweet about Immigrants and the Internet is Roasting Her Hard
Tomi Lahren of Fox News fame is largely recognized as a mouthpiece for anything from conservative to alt-right to White supremacist talking points. The Fox Nation host also frequently steps in it on Twitter.
Lahren has been called out numerous times for hypocritical declarations about Black and brown skinned people. Now she's done it again.
Gun rights advocates, in an attempt to maintain the status quo at any cost, repeatedly target those they see as threats to guns. One of their favorite current targets is a 17 year old survivor of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, David Hogg.
Using altered images and easily disproved claims, gun rights proponents and alt-right media outlets, and even a few members of Congress, attempt to discredit the children from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. A quick search of Twitter or Facebook shows 17 year old David Hogg as one of the top two targets for their attacks.
On the evening of August 11, white supremacists, nationalists, neo-Nazis and racist demonstrators marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many carried burning tiki torches while chanting “white lives matter,” “you will not replace us,” and the Nazi-associated phrase “blood and soil.”
The vast majority of the demonstrators were from out of town, having traveled from all over the country to protest the removal of a statue depicting Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who once said he never wanted a monument erected in his name. And yet Charlottesville philanthropist Paul Goodloe McIntire commissioned a statue in Lee’s likeness in 1917 and later dedicated the memorial in the whites-only Lee Park.
Tina Fey appeared on yesterday's edition of Saturday Night Live's special summer "Weekend Update" episode to comment on the violence which erupted over the weekend at the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and President Donald Trump's response.
“I have nothing but fond memories of my time there,” Fey, a 1992 graduate of the University of Virginia, said to Weekend Update co-anchor Colin Jost while wearing a sweater emblazoned with the school's logo. “I graduated a virgin and I still liked it. That's how good the architecture is down there.”
Several brands that advertise on Breitbart News have opted to sever ties with the far-right news website after a social media effort urged marketers to abandon the site for espousing racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic content. Breitbart's executive chairman, Steve Bannon, was recently appointed chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Donald Trump.
Food manufacturer Kellogg announced it would pull all advertising from Breitbart after consumers alerted the company of its ads on the website. “We regularly work with our media buying partners to ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren’t aligned with our values as a company,” said Kris Charles, a Kellogg spokeswoman. “This involves reviewing websites where ads could potentially be placed using filtering technology to assess site content. As you can imagine, there is a very large volume of websites, so occasionally something is inadvertently missed. We recently reviewed the list of sites where our ads can be placed and decided to discontinue advertising on Breitbart.com. We are working to remove our ads from that site.”
