Is Justin Trudeau The Post-Fact Face Of Fascism?

A couple weeks ago, Bill Maher had Timothy Snyder on as a guest. Yale professor of history, Snyder’s recent book is titled, On Tyranny. Given the Trump presidency, Snyder’s book sounds as timely as you can get.

In it, Snyder details the many lessons we can learn from the history of tyranny. One in particular caught my attention. It’s the frangible relationship between truth and politics, and how abandoning truth is a frontal attack on democracy:

“Without truth we don’t have trust. Without trust, we don’t have the rule of law. Without the rule of law, we don’t have democracy.”


Google Hire could allow employers to see your entire search history

It will reportedly be a recruitment tool similar to LinkedIn — however, early reports suggest it will be available through your personal Google account.

If that’s the case, it will link things like your search history and YouTube account with your job applications, laying it all bare for employers to see.


Former FEC Chairwoman Calls for ‘Regulations’ of Political Speech on the Internet

Speaking at an event called “Future of Democracy,” Ravel argued the proliferation of “fake news” and political advertising on platforms like Facebook influenced elections. She warned that the lack of disclosure by the creators of these campaigns was becoming a huge problem.

“We know that there’s a lot of campaigning that’s moved to the internet, whether it’s through fake news or just outright advertising and there is almost no regulation of this, very little,” she said. “And so that the disclosure that we expect as to who is behind campaigns is not going to exist soon.”


An Atlanta Theater Faces Criticism for Gay Versions of Bible Stories

What if it really was Adam and Steve? That’s what the Out Front Theater Company in Atlanta, which stages shows created only by people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning, will set out to answer for audiences during a three-week run of “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told,” starting April 27.

However, its decision to do so has provoked a torrent of criticism over the play, which has been called “blasphemous.”


Vandal Calls for Beheading, Lynching of Berkeley College Republicans

The University of California at Berkeley’s College Republicans have received several death threats in recent weeks, with unidentified vandals posting stickers across campus calling for members of the group to be beheaded or lynched.

But the most recent round of sticker threats comes less than two months after students, protesting the College Republican’s speaking event for Milo Yiannopoulos, caused $100,000 in damage on campus.


South Dakota Muslim Brandishes Guns & Assault Weapons in Threatening Video From Christian Conference, “Be f**king terrified.”

In America, there is now a separate set of laws for Muslims and non-Muslims. Sharia in America. If a non-Muslim was armed to the teeth obscenely threatening Muslims with massive firepower at a mosque in their parking lot, he would be arrested, his face smeared across every newspaper and nightly news program across the country. This Muslim was not arrested or questioned.

Holding a Quran, Ehab Jabar is brandishing serious firepower while threatening the women and children at Christian conference. “Be afraid” or “be terrified.”


Trudeau needs to act now on Canada’s border crisis

The crisis at Canada’s southern border is getting worse, and it’s time for the Trudeau government to take action over the sudden and significant influx of illegal migration.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has, thus far, not done anything to stop the flow of illegal crossings. But he can no longer ignore the problem.


Sheikh tells teenage girls they will go to hell if they have non-Muslim friends

Sheikh Mohamad Doar told a group of young girls in Sydney that they needed to stop being friends with non-believers during a lecture about Islam.

Speaking at Punchbowl on Saturday night, he said: ‘The reality is, my sisters, any friendship that is not built on the fear of Allah is only going to lead to hell fire so you need to be cautious.


Kid At WH Easter Egg Roll Photobombs CNN Broadcast — Appears To Yell ‘Fake News’

Our story’s hero — who appears to be one of the children present at Monday’s White House Easter Egg Roll — snuck into the background of a live shot featuring CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

As Acosta broke down the Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to North Korea, the kid slid out from behind Acosta, threw up the X and mouthed “fake news,” twice.


Londonistan: Acid Attack Scars 12 At Nightclub

There’s been over 1,800 acid attacks in London since 2010. There were 261 in 2015 and an astonishing 454 in 2016. If such attacks continue at the same rate, there will be around 714 in 2017, 1,124 in 2018, 1,769 in 2019, and 2,784 in 2020.

While such attacks used to be unique to the Muslim world, mass immigration has transformed London to the point where they now average over one a day.

This is what the Swedes fail to understand – when they erect barriers for vehicles, terrorists will change tactics. The terrorists are the danger, not the tools they use.

    If you want to shut down the gay Bible play in under a minute, we just have to get the media to mistakenly report it as a gay Koran play.

    Spread the word.

      This is the society we live in now; this is the reality, like it or not. Who decided that this should be the case, and why did we let them get away with it?

    I see that Theresa May has called a (very) early election – it is not due until 2020 – in order to take advantage of the fact that the Labour leader is a commie nut-bar whose own party doesn’t want him. And to gain a mandate for the Brexit process.

    A muslim woman hauling out her tit in public to nurse her baby? I call BS.

    I was wondering if anyone’s ever done a study on potentially fake incidents taking place on trains. I particularly remember that one in Australia where a glamour model supposedly rescued a muslim couple who were being yelled at by a middle aged white woman.

    Both USA and Australia tightened up on highly skilled worker visas today.

    USA:
    Trump is heading Tuesday to Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he plans to sign an order dubbed “Buy American, Hire American,” said administration officials ….
    The officials said the order, which Trump will sign at the headquarters of tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc., would direct the departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Labor and State to propose new rules to prevent immigration fraud and abuse. Those departments would also be asked to offer changes so that H-1B visas are awarded to the “most-skilled or highest-paid applicants.”
    The White House said the program is currently undercutting American workers by bringing in cheaper labor and said some tech companies are using it to hire large numbers of workers and drive down wages.

    Australia:
    Sweeping changes to the skilled migration program have been broadly welcomed by business although there are some concerns over new language requirements and implementation.
    Business Council of Australia chief executive Jennifer Westacott said the changes were a chance for Australia to rebuild confidence in the system.
    Among occupations to be removed from the list of subclass 457 visas are: Goat Farmer, Turf Grower, PR Manager, Betting Agency Manager, Antique Dealer, Migration Agent, and Televidion Presenter.

    Sheikh tells teenage girls they will go to hell …
    So? A lot of them are destined for hell anyway. According to Mohammed, “And I looked into Hell and I saw that the majority of its people are women.” (Narrated by al-Bukhari, 3241; Muslim, 2737).

      They can’t go to hell since they are already living in hell: Islam is hell on earth.

    Looking at the Rebel Media video of the African man sneaking into Canada, I can honestly say I am thoroughly unsettled knowing this man will be walking amongst us. He is vague, shifts stories, lies. How can you trust someone like that. He doeant even appear grateful. I dont like the idea at all that this man walked into Canada. Does that make me a racist, Justin? Its my country too.
