UK Regulator Finds Ethnic Minorities Over-Represented on TV, Demands More Diversity Anyway

White people and heterosexuals are underrepresented in the British television industry, an Ofcom audit has found — but the watchdog still insists there is “much more to do on diversity”.

Hypocritical Liberals Cry Bullsh*t When Kellyanne Conway Says She’s A Sexual Assault Victim

The liberal rule that any woman claiming sexual assault must be believed immediately even if there is no corroborating witness or evidence was first announced in September 2015 at an Iowa Press conference. It was announced by Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton who said, “Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault,” Clinton said. “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.” She even put it up on her campaign site.

Weibo reported on Germany: “Thousands of refugees are streaming in, can Merkel handle it? Taking care of accommodation, food, medical care, as well as 300 euros per month for living expenses – Germany seems like paradise to Syrian refugees, but dealing with the largest influx of migrants since WWII, how much longer will Germany be able to keep this up?”


‘Not a get-out-of-jail-free pass’: Indigenous healing lodges defended in wake of McClintic transfer

The head of a women’s healing lodge in Edmonton is defending both the safety and effectiveness of Canada’s nine Indigenous healing lodges, in the wake of outrage over the relocation of convicted murderer Terri-Lynne McClintic to a healing lodge in Saskatchewan.
