Open rebellion? Europe signals patience drying up as US re-imposes harmful Iran sanctions

Aside from imperiling a landmark international accord and endangering regional and global security, the US pull-out from the 2015 agreement with Iran will have crushing economic consequences for Europe. French, German and UK firms stand to lose billions of euros in investments and trade if they are forced to comply with the sanctions that will be re-imposed and expanded now that the US is no longer a signatory of the nuclear deal.

  1. Iran was NEVER a signatory of the ‘nuclear deal’.
  2. Trump has probably prevented Paris from being nuked.
  3. To hell with 95% of Europe.

‘It’s traumatizing … to be in these spaces:’ Black students adjust to whiteness of UNC

Senior Aaron Epps, president of The Black Student Movement, said Black students often struggle to adapt to the environment of predominantly white institutions like UNC, especially if they come from a majority Black community like he did.

“It’s just a different pool at UNC,” he said. “It’s hard to navigate a very, very inherently institutionalized white space.”

He’s being forced to attend UNC?

37 Things White People Need To Stop Ruining In 2018

h/t

Number 7 is “And the United States of America”. Also, apparently, “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child is a “classic”. Which white people need to stop ruining.

I think white people are also ruining author Patrice Peck’s hair, damn them.

Baby Boomers caused great harm

A typical Millennial criticism of the Boomer legacy was published in the National Post this spring. Sabrina Maddeaux begins a defense of her cohort by first recalling the many waves of invaders who sacked Rome over a millennia, and then shifting her focus tightly on the “bloated, all-consuming generation” born in the “devil-spawning era between 1946 and 1964,” who’ve described her peers as spoiled, feckless, lazy, shallow and entitled.

‘Absolute shock and horror,’ expressed over Lethbridge high school grads Cowboys and Indians costume party

Tieja Medicine Crane, a Grade 12 student at a different high school in the city, said she felt offended when she saw the posts online.

“The story behind the headdress is that every feather means something. It was an act of bravery. You earned all those feathers in order to make the headdress,” Medicine Crane said.

“I will never be able to wear a headdress because I haven’t earned it … So someone else, not from my culture, is going to wear it? That’s really offensive.”

Dead criminal’s family complains victim’s AR-15 made the fight unfair

In case you haven’t already heard, a 23-year-old man from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma made headlines this week when he shot and killed three teenage home invaders. The three teens had robbed the garage earlier that day, then returned to try the main house. They awoke Zach Peters, the homeowner’s son, who grabbed his AR-15 and defended himself against 3 armed and masked intruders. Max Cook, 19; Jacob Redfearn, 17; and Jake Woodruff, 16, were shot and killed. Cook’s 21-year-old girlfriend, get-away driver, and “robbery mastermind” Elizabeth Rodriguez was arrested and charged with three counts of both first degree murder and burglary. Her murder charges come from the felony murder rule which charges anyone involved in a felony with murder if a death occurs during or due to the felonious act.

Now the family of one of the deceased criminals is complaining. They don’t believe it was fair that Peters was allowed to defend himself with an AR-15 when the criminals were only armed with knives and brass knuckles.

Vile wench whinges in the appalling Guardian about how “The far right wants to exploit the Westminster attack” – but, like, London’s too cool to let them, man

‘When the first news of the attack in Westminster began filtering through, I, along with many others, felt that familiar knot in our stomach – the kind one feels when braced for a predictable battle to separate fact from hysteria, plead for a sense of proportionality and entreat the hurt and the angry not to generalise. Despite being poised for the response, something felt different this time. Seemingly within minutes, former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was at the scene stirring hate while the shock was fresh. Nigel Farage was on the radio a few hours later, spewing predictable bile. Katie Hopkins published her usual MailOnline column, its tone sharpened to meet the high-octane moment, and was hosted on Fox News. Twitter abuse flooded towards Sadiq Khan, unleashed by Donald Trump Jr, who criticised London’s mayor hours after the attack for a perfectly reasonable and responsible claim he made six months ago that terrorist incidents were now part of the experience of living in a large city. We can only assume he singled out Khan because he was Muslim. All this happened in less than 24 hours after the attack.’

I swear they type these pieces in their sleep. She probably has ten on file, ready to go. But I guess she forgot, no doubt in a rare access of honesty, to mention the part where she felt bad for the maimed and murdered victims. Oops.
