Anti-Milo Protester Shoots Bernie Sanders Supporter, No Charges After He Points To ‘Racism’

A man who shot someone outside a speech at the University of Washington (UW) by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos said his victim was a “white supremacist,” and police let the shooter go, even as the victim is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

In what appears to be a case of mistaken identity by the “anti-racism” vigilante, the shooting victim later turned out to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders.

Before Leaving White House Obama Bombs CIA-Vetted Syrian Rebels Embedded with Al-Qaeda

If one event can symbolize the incoherence of the Obama administration’s support for the so-called “vetted moderate” rebels in Syria, it would be one of Obama’s last acts in his last full day in office.

Friday the Pentagon reported that they had struck a terror training camp near Idlib, killing more than one hundred Al-Qaeda terrorists.

Roman Polanski picked for French film panel, sparking outrage… but not by Meryl Streep

France’s minister for women’s rights said it was a “shocking” decision to appoint filmmaker Roman Polanski as head of the jury for the country’s equivalent of the Oscars.

The award-winning director has been wanted in the US for decades after admitting to sex with a minor.

Mr Polanski, now 83, fled ahead of his sentencing for statutory rape in 1978.

The Cesars have defended their choice, praising the director as an “insatiable aesthete”.

You mean insatiable child rapist.

I blame the CBC… Anti-illuminati discrimination reaches fever pitch In GTA

Neighbours targeted for being Illuminati, accused tells trial

BRAMPTON – She must see herself as the Queen Mother.

Boketsu Boekwa was convinced that her dead son, shot by Peel police, was destined by God to be the “king of kings” and depose Queen Elizabeth. And she was equally convinced that her neighbours were witch members of the Illuminati bent on world domination.

I blame the CBC.

“We were forthcoming and explained we were quite vehemently anti-(Trump),”

And I bet he’s still wondering why he was turned away.

Canadians traveling to inauguration turned away at U.S. border

Joseph Decunha, a 20-year-old physics student at McGill University in Montreal, was also turned back at the Lacolle crossing between Quebec and New York state after being asked specifically if he, his partner and a friend supported or opposed Trump.

“We were forthcoming and explained we were quite vehemently anti-(Trump),” he said.

I note the CBC version of this Reuters story curiously omits the “vehemently anti-Trump” quote.

‘It’s incredible!’ Cologne admits hiring TERRORIST SYMPATHISER as New Year security guard

A TERRORIST sympathiser was among known criminals hired as security guards in Cologne on New Year’s Eve to prevent a repeat of the previous year’s outbreak of sexual assaults by migrant mobs.

The astonishing lapse is highlighted in an internal police report presented to the North Rhine-Westphalia state parliament Internal State Minister Ralf Jaeger.

The heavily redacted report revealed: “Three security guards were flagged in the list of security personnel for New Year’s Eve, two of whom are criminal biker gang members wanted by arrest warrants and one man who is said to be part of an Islamic terrorist environment.”

Because 4chan always identify themselves when speaking to the police…

Only the CBC would publish this overwrought nonsense…

Do-it-yourself art spaces are under siege — and we need to do everything we can to protect them

In the late fall, a friend anxiously explained to me how the online message board 4chan has evolved. When it first started in 2004, it was an open, free-thought avenue — mostly for anime nerds. But over a decade later, it has become a hotbed for ultra right-wing, misogynistic, white supremacist ideas and activity.

Hearing about the closure of DIY spaces in America has been heartbreaking. However, from my forward-looking home of Toronto, it all seemed like a distant sci-fi story. But on January 10, this vigilante wave hit Toronto: one of the city’s rare DIY spaces was shut down. A 4chan member called the fire department, citing the art hub as unsafe; the fire department came for inspection and prohibited the organizers from continuing operations.

I can just imagine that conversation… “Hello Officer I’m a member of the alt-right racist 4chan please shut down this DIY art-space.”
