    SNOPES CARRIES WATER FOR MUHAMMAD “Mostly False” Indiana billboard is actually 100% true. ​The self-proclaimed fact-checker Snopes.com has been harshly criticized for its Leftist bias, and as is so often the case, a tilt to the Left also means a willingness to foster ignorance and complacency about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. After a billboard went up in Indiana pointing out six unsavory aspects of the life of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, Snopes labeled the billboard’s charges “Mostly False” – but that label applies far more accurately to the Snopes report than to the billboard. Snopes’...

    Progressives eat up the Trump=Hitler narrative to the point where there is a billboard in downtown Phoenix, which is heavy on such imagery. Santa Monica-based activist Karen Fiorito designed the billboard, which has the president in between two nuclear explosions and dollar signs imitating swastikas used by the Nazi Party. Fiorito says she’s worried about money and politics, along with the direction of the country under Trump. Yeah, that goes for you and every other voter who cast a ballot for a losing candidate in a presidential election. The back of Fiorito’s billboard shows a bunch of hands using sign...

    **SNIP** A billboard last month went up reading, "Real men provide. Real women appreciate it." That's now been replaced by a longer message titled "Much ado about nothing" that mocks those who took offense to the original message. It goes on to say "A social experiment that brought forth those so immersed in their own insecurity that in the mirror they could only see an angry victim of their incorrect interpretation of a silly billboard -- Bless their hearts."

    American Atheists has unveiled its holiday billboards, including 2 in the Shreveport area. They encourage people to "Skip church for a merrier Christmas." The group is trying to stir the pot.

"There are atheists in the community, there are people who don't believe in God." One of the billboards parodies President-elect Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "Make Christmas Great Again. ... skip church." [Snip] American Atheists has its holiday messages on display from Louisiana, to Colorado, even down in Georgia.

    As leading artists and executives in the music industry, we are adding our voices to the chorus of Americans demanding change. Music always has been celebrated communally, on dancefloors and at concert halls. But this life-affirming ritual, like so many other daily experiences—going to school or church or work—now is threatened, because of gun violence in this country. The one thing that connects the recent tragedies in Orlando is that it is far too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on guns. We call on Congress to do more to prevent the gun violence that kills more than...

    Last month, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan spoke on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Info Wars radio show about how he thinks “liberal social justice warriors” are kind of like Maoists and the Ku Klux Klan. Yesterday (May 11), the Info Wars online talk show premiered another segment of its conversation with Corgan. This time, the interview veered into the 2016 election (among -- trust us -- many, many other topics). Host Lee Ann McAdoo introduced him as “musical icon and great patriot Billy Corgan,” and he certainly went to work.

    Simply ignoring the pro-life message is not enough for some abortion activists. They feel they have to silence it, and some times they commit crimes to do so. This week, California Catholic Daily reported a life-affirming billboard of a smiling baby in San Francisco had been vandalized. ProLife Across America, which sponsored the billboard, said it is dedicated to promoting positive, pro-life messages on billboards across the country. Its San Francisco billboard did not appear controversial: It had a photo of a baby girl and the words “Born & Unborn, Cherish Life!”along with a pregnancy help hotline. According to the...

    A group managed by the Portland Business Alliance plans to replace a controversial downtown billboard that critics argued stereotyped homeless people as drug addicts. The billboard, at Southwest Fourth and Morrison, shows a person holding a cardboard sign that reads "Your spare change funds my addictions." The sign was put up March 1 by Clean and Safe, the nonprofit overseen by the Portland Business Alliance. It is part of an ongoing campaign by the chamber of commerce to discourage people from giving to panhandlers, whose presence can hurt businesses when they set up outside their doors, the chamber said.

    The Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio is getting some positive publicity this week after it placed pro-abortion billboards across the city. The billboards advertise the pro-abortion website MyAbortionMyLife.org and the words, “End the silence. End the shame.”, a campaign to portray abortion in a positive light, Mashable reports. Nancy Starner, Preterm’s director of development and communications, said her abortion clinic wants to end the “stigma” of abortion by promoting women’s “diverse” abortion experiences – in other words, women’s abortion experiences that fit their pro-abortion agenda. “We wanted to move away from political black-and-white abstract issue,” Starner said, “and look...
