Hate crime posters are reported… for being a hate crime!

It is a campaign supposed to warn bigots, racists, homophobes and transphobes that they are at risk of being convicted.

But the Scottish Government-funded drive to stamp out discrimination and abuse has itself been accused of blindly carrying out a hate crime.

The ‘dear haters’ advertising campaign has attracted the wrath of some Christians over its use of language, including one poster that reads: ‘Dear Bigots, you can’t spread your religious hate here. End of sermon.’

Have We Reached Peak Woke? Making street harassment a hate crime could unfairly target minorities warns batshit crazy woman

I don’t wish to see catcalling made a hate crime either, that said you just know the head-space her bent stance is coming from. God forbid you’d want to target “minority” rape cultures. Best to keep blaming white men.

Colleges Are Rejecting Applicants Who Follow Controversial People On Twitter

While major Internet platforms are busy silencing Alex Jones of Infowars.com, prestigious colleges are rejecting applicants who connect on social media with him and others with opinions not considered mainstream. We are not talking about applicants who are retweeting alleged hate speech,  alleged “Fake News”, or alleged hoaxes. We are talking about just following a Twitter feed of someone whose views are frowned upon by members of an admissions committee.

While one of my legal clients (a 17 year old teen) was being interviewed by one of the most competitive colleges in the country he was asked why he was following Alex Jones on Twitter. My client, a teenager expected to talk about his stellar grades, top test scores, amazing extracurricular activities and volunteer work, but the interviewer focused on who he was connecting with online. My client had never “liked” or re-tweeted any of Mr. Jones’ content. His alleged “transgression” was that he followed Mr. Jones on Twitter. That was it.

Subsequently, the student’s parents engaged me about this troubling situation. Immediately, I performed a digital background check on the admissions interviewer and found her to be a Bernie Sanders follower. Interestingly, Mr. Jones’ is not a big fan of Mr. Sanders.  To each his own; however, political discrimination has no place during the college admissions process and I told the college’s admissions director that the situation must be properly resolved immediately. The college didn’t want any negative publicity about this matter so it quickly resolved the situation to my client’s satisfaction.

This example demonstrates why teens need to not just audit their digital profiles and lock down their social media accounts during the college application process, they must also ensure that their web surfing history is not collected by an admissions committee because innocent digital activity is being used to reject students from their dream colleges. A teen’s web search history may include topics such as politics, religion, health status, creed, etc. According to The New York Times, some colleges are trying to buy these data points from the organizations that provide the SAT or ACT who obtain this data directly from student test takers.

Not the Onion: John Tory meets members of hip-hop community to talk recent gun violence

TORONTO – Mayor John Tory met with three prominent members of Toronto’s hip-hop community on Friday to discuss possible solutions for the recent spate of gun violence in the city.


Remember I called it – get ready for tax payer funded Gangsta Rap venues.

Meanwhile…Canadian rapper Tory Lanez performing last night at Rebel in Toronto – maybe he was beating on Tory!

It’s a mystery why there is so much violence in Toronto.

Strippers, Prostitutes Hit The Streets For ‘International Whores’ Day’

On Saturday, strippers, prostitutes, and “allies,” hit the streets for the 43rd annual International Whores’ Day.

In cities such as Oakland, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, “sex workers” held demonstrations mainly to voice their opposition to the recently passed anti-sex-trafficking bill, the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act and Stop Enabling Sex Trafficking Act, and to advocate for the decimalization of prostitution.

How is it that people who openly admit to breaking the law can protest without repercussions, yet law abiding Conservatives are censored at every opportunity?
