  • Silicon Valley escalates its war on white supremacy despite free speech concerns

    08/16/2017 8:06:12 PM PDT · by janetjanet998 · 21 replies
    Silicon Valley significantly escalated its war on white supremacy this week, choking off the ability of hate groups to raise money online, removing them from Internet search engines, and preventing some sites from registering at all. The new moves go beyond censoring individual stories or posts. Tech companies such as Google, GoDaddy and PayPal are now reversing their hands-off approach about content supported by their services and making it much more difficult for “alt-right” organizations to reach mass audiences. But the actions are also heightening concerns over how tech companies are becoming the arbiters of free speech in America. And...

    A music festival that seeks to raise human rights issues in China was blocked from its original venue, a state park in Los Angeles’s Chinatown, following a dispute between the festival’s organizers and a local community leader. George Yu, president of the Chinatown Business Improvement District, said he won’t endorse the Blacklisted Music + Arts Festival being held at the Los Angeles State Historic Park unless the organizers stop calling attention to Tibetan independence, environmental pollution, and forced organ harvesting in China—issues that the Chinese regime considers out of bounds for discussion. The organizers and host of the festival said...

    "Diversity statements" are used by universities in Oregon to weed out conservative and other right-leaning scholars at universities, a new report issued by the Oregon Association of Scholars (OAS) alleges. Per the report, the universities in Oregon (University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Portland State University, and Oregon Health and Science University) use a new kind of litmus test to single out conservative scholars: diversity statements. The report’s executive summary reads, as follows: Oregon colleges and universities have begun to impose requirements for prospective and current faculty to show their commitment to the partisan ideology of "diversity, equity, and inclusion."...

    Members of the media cheered during a screening of the racial horror-comedy film Get Out when the black protagonist murdered an all-white family one-by-one. Conservative film critic Armond White reported the "all-media" audience's reaction on Friday, in his scathing review of the film in National Review. The New York Film Critics Circle removed White from its group after he allegedly made insulting comments about black director Steve McQueen during an annual awards ceremony. He called McQueen an “embarrassing doorman and garbageman,” according to Entertainment Weekly. White compared the film's director Jordan Peele, of Comedy Central's "Key and Peele," to President...

    Ellen DeGeneres has said Kim Burrell will not appear on her show after the gospel singer made homophobic comments. Burrell referred to "the perverted homosexual spirit" during a sermon at a church in Houston, Texas. She had been due to sing with Pharrell Williams on The Ellen DeGeneres Show later this week. But the talk show host, who is a well-known advocate of gay rights, tweeted: "For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show." 'No excuses' DeGeneres had been asked by fans to cancel Burrell's planned appearance and an online petition was launched. In a video...

    (CNSNews.com) – The new Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture’s tagline is “powerful moments in African American history, culture, and community.” However, the museum – with a $540 million price tag funded 50 percent by U.S. taxpayers and with a collection of more than 36,000 artifacts and 100,000 people represented – doesn’t include many prominent blacks, including Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Edward Brooke, a Republican who became the first African American to be elected to the U.S. Senate by popular vote in 1966. After touring the new museum and exploring the website, which contains...

    Kellyanne Conway is worried establishment elites in Washington, DC, are so prejudiced against President-elect Donald Trump that she won’t be able to get her kids into private school in the nation’s capital. Conway divulged her fears to other parents at the Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, NJ, on Thursday night, when her twins, George and Claudia, performed a concert with other students. Alicia Keys was also there to hear her goddaughter perform. Conway, who was Trump’s campaign manager, is moving to DC to be counselor to the president. Her husband, George, happens to be the lawyer who wrote the Supreme...

    Honolulu’s Café 8 ½ gets rave reviews on Yelp for its “Radiatore Verde” and “Italian stir fry,” among other popular dishes at the eclectic mom-and-pop restaurant – but the response to its new 'policy' barring pro-Trump patrons has been decidedly more mixed. A bright yellow, handmade sign posted on the restaurant's front glass door declares: “If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis.” A photo of the sign was shared with FoxNews.com. One also is proudly posted on the café’s Facebook page, and was “liked” by some 40 people. “…The next time you're in Honolulu, eat lunch...

    Last week, it was announced that the Rockettes would be performing at Donald Trump's inauguration, with the group's union—the American Guild of Variety Artists—mandating the dancers show up to the gig or lose their jobs. After considerable public outcry, Rockettes' management claimed they would not be required to smile and dance at America's gateway to Gozer after all—but in an interview with Marie Claire, one Rockette says she and her fellow dancers are still terrified that there will be more fallout. The Rockette, who wished to remain anonymous, told Marie Claire that though many of the women who declined to...

    “If anyone does do it, I hope that the check that they get is in the nine figures. Because it’s probably the last check they’re ever going to get,” Simon Renshaw tells TheWrap The Dixie Chicks’ manager says the title of one of their songs sums up why Donald Trump’s inauguration team can’t book A-list talent: Hollywood isn’t ready to make nice with the president-elect. Trump’s inaugural committee is still struggling to lock in A-list talent for his big festivities, according to Hollywood insiders, and even offering ambassadorships to anyone who can wrangle top singers. “If anyone does do it,...

    Every Thursday, the actor, comedian and producer Tim Heidecker hosts open-line “office hours.” Fans of his absurdist comedy, most of which runs on Time Warner’s Adult Swim network, call in to talk. On most days, they run the gamut from fans to superfans. But on Dec. 8, Heidecker took a call from Sam Hyde, the face of the comedy troupe Million Dollar Extreme. Its own Adult Swim series, “World Peace,” had been scrapped after a six-episode run. “Didn’t you want the show canceled?” asked Hyde. “Didn’t you campaign against our show?” For 12 minutes, live on Facebook, Hyde mocked Heidecker’s...

    Citing “overwhelming demand,” rock and roll musician Kid Rock recently started selling Donald Trump-themed apparel. One of three T-shirts tied to the president-elect depicts a post-election map with Republican states labeled “United States of America” and Democratic states labeled “Dumbf—istan.” Another features the words “God, Guns & Trump.” The third includes an image of Trump along with a crude message directed at his opponents. The hat, which is a spinoff of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” cap, reads “Make America Badass Again.” The items are available through Kid Rock’s online store. (Warning: Some items feature vulgar language.) Related VideoBoone...

    By now we’ve all heard how the contentious election, and the surprising result, has frayed friendships — especially on social media. Hillary Clinton supporters, angry and dismayed at the result, have chopped Trump-loving friends off their friend lists. But the culling seems to be progressing beyond just active Trump supporters. Now, some people who are insufficiently anti-Trump, even if they didn’t vote for him, are getting the boot. Dorian Davis, an adjunct professor of media in Washington, DC, has noticed a slide in his friend count because, he suspects, he’s not “critical enough of Trump.” “If you post anything even...

    Conservative movement professionals in Washington, D.C. are plotting to form a “blacklist” of Donald Trump supporters that they can kick out of the movement, never to return. Several conservative talking heads and Beltway consultant types have been very angry about the rise of businessman Trump, who is pushing for American sovereignty, a reversal of neoconservative foreign policy, and competitive bidding for pharmaceuticals even though the drug companies that fund the Republican Party would take a financial hit. So far, anti-Trump think pieces referencing William F. Buckley have been ineffective. Memes comparing Trump to Hitler haven’t worked. So these Republicans are...

    Next in line to denounce Donald Trump? Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina). Trump has been the subject of intense criticism from both parties after declaring several weeks ago that Mexican immigrants are "rapists" and drug-runners. On Saturday, Graham told Business Insider that Trump was using needlessly divisive, un-presidential rhetoric. "He's running to be president of all of us," Graham said. "It takes a level of maturity and thoughtfulness and demeanor that's not being exhibited here." The Senator also made several cracks about recent decisions by businesses like NBC and NASCAR to cut ties with the real estate mogul. "As a...

    Hard-core Communists in Hollywood, and by that I mean those with party cards and whose allegiance was to Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union, not the United States, made a major effort to take over the movie industry and nearly succeeded. The much-maligned House Un-American Activities Committee, as even liberal Hollywood historians Larry Ceplair and Steven Englund acknowledge, uncovered over 200 party members in Hollywood. My dad, Morrie Ryskind, one of the few outspoken anti-Communist screenwriters in Hollywood, said the number was closer to 300. They were part of a broad conspiracy of subversives who had penetrated America’s most critical...

    Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA), other senators and Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) recently sent letters to institutions that employ or support climate change researchers whose work questions claims that Earth and humanity face unprecedented manmade climate change catastrophes.The letters allege that the targeted researchers may have “conflicts of interest” or may not have fully disclosed corporate funding sources. They say such researchers may have testified before congressional committees, written articles or spoken at conferences, emphasizing the role of natural forces in climate change, or questioning evidence and computer models that emphasize predominantly human causes. Mr. Grijalva asserts that disclosure of certain...

    Wholesale retailer Costco announced Tuesday evening that they have reversed a decision to remove conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book from stores, following an outcry from thousands of angry customers. “Costco is not a book store. Our book shelf space is very limited,” a statement posted on Facebook said. “We exercise discipline in the best utilization of that limited space based solely on what our members are buying. We can’t carry every title that our members are interested in reading. We are constantly monitoring book sales, and make decisions to pull books off the shelves frequently based on sales volume...
