  • Companies in California Admit They are Paying People to Protest Donald Trump

    It was expected that protests to Donald Trump’s Presidency would last for a while, but we have past 100 days and they show no signs of abating. Many have wondered how it is that people can afford to be out protesting every day, and how the permanent protestors are actually supporting themselves. Soon after Trump’s election, a job ad appeared on Craigslist offering $15 per hour plus gas money for “activists” to protest in different locations around the country courtesy of moveon.org (a Soros funded movement). Many attributed this to a Bernie Sanders group. But the media were quick to...
  • San Francisco Chronicle Admits: Some Anti-Trump Protesters are Paid

    Despite the left’s attempt to deny it, some anti-Trump protesters are indeed paid to show up — including those from a growing number of tech companies who are paying their employees to participate in anti-Trump rallies. The San Francisco Chronicle reported on Saturday, in an article titled “Bay Area demonstrators may be paid to protest, by employers,” that the “common accusation lobbed at liberal protesters” that “they’re being paid to protest” is at least partially based in fact. According to the Chronicle, “an increasing number of companies have unveiled policies that allow employees to take paid time off work for...
  • Politics Has Become Protest – We Need a New Politics

    It is fair to assume that the vast majority of people have become either disillusioned or outright disgusted with modern politics (89% expressed dissatisfaction in a recent study). We have one party that seeks to control us through demographic percentage edges, and another party that can’t even get a favourable budget passed while they have a majority. Neither side wants to deal with the other side’s issues; each considers the other beneath contempt. And we are the ones that suffer. The two party system was designed to foster compromise and the limiting of extreme views (as in the compromise would...

    Why? Because of "administrative irregularities." This doesn’t sound like a regime that’s long for this world. First it tried to essentially abolish the legislature via the courts, only to be forced to back off that idea because the public appeared ready to storm the palace gates over it. Now - never having learned his lesson on anything before, so why start now? - Nicolas Maduro employs a capricious excuse to ban one of the opposition’s top leaders from holding office in the country for 15 years.

    Dutch men are uploading pictures of themselves holding hands on to social media to stand against homophobia. The trend was sparked by an alleged attack on two gay men on a street in the Netherlands on Sunday. The images are being shared via the hashtags #handinhand and #allemannenhandinhand (all men hand in hand). Politicians, celebrities, football pundits and workers have joined in, throughout the Netherlands and beyond. Jasper Vernes-Sewratan, 35, and Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes, 31, say they were attacked by a group of men in the early hours of Sunday morning in Arnhem, in the country's east. Their story was widely...

    The "Resistance" may still claim to be in full swing, but if eBay sales are to be believed, the market for Women’s March attire - especially the iconic, hot pink "pussy hats" - has bottomed out. [Snip] An unscientific, several-day-long Heat Street study of eBay, Etsy and other Internet sale sites where the Pussy Hat trade once rivaled the gross domestic product if a small nation, shows sales have slowed to a trickle, with desperate knitters looking to offload their wares at deep discounts.

    Several dozen people assembled outside the White House Saturday to demand an investigation into the unfounded Internet rumor known as "Pizzagate." Wearing T-shirts and holding banners defending the conspiracy theory - which falsely linked Hillary Clinton to an alleged child-sex-trafficking ring operating out of a D.C. pizza parlor - protesters took turns climbing onto an elevated stage in Lafayette Square to demand politicians and mainstream news media take their claims seriously. "I don’t have any doubt that Pizzagate is real," said Kori Hayes, a corrections officer who drove with his wife and three kids to Washington from Middleburg, Fla.,...

  • Women’s Day Protester Suddenly Realizes She’s Reinforcing Harmful Social Construct Of Gender

    03/08/2017 7:02:11 PM PST · by fungoking · 30 replies
    NEW YORK, NY—A protester yelling into a megaphone on International Women’s Day suddenly realized she was reinforcing the “oppressive and harmful” social construct of gender by promoting a day that implies gender is inherently meaningful, sources confirmed Wednesday. Midway through screaming the phrase “Down with the patriarchy!” into the loudspeaker, the woman suddenly stopped and thought about how her presence at the protest suggested that the concept of womanhood represented something more significant than an arbitrary social construct foisted upon females. “Wait a minute, think about what we’re suggesting here,” the woman said to her fellow demonstrators as she lowered...
