    A NYPD officer is under investigation after he was filmed violently shoving a female protester to the ground during a George Floyd protest in Brooklyn that saw 200 people arrested. The cop, who has not been identified, was seen forcefully pushing Dounya Zayer, 20, and sending her flying onto the pavement during a demonstration near Barclay's Center on Friday night. Zayer later shared videos of herself from the hospital claiming she suffered a violent seizure from the attack and said she was 'in no way aggressive' towards the officer. An NYPD spokesperson confirmed on Saturday that they are aware of...

    Baby Boomers... these things were never cool. No, it's time to accept that these choices were mistakes and move on to make better choices from now on. We know that some of these will be shocking and hard for you to accept. You may be angry... Just know, even if you disagree, you are still wrong. Today, we're going to (mostly) overlook the big things and, instead, focus on the more mundane mistakes that plague every generation after (baby boomers) CURSIVE Cursive doesn't actually help. While it may look pretty, it's honestly an outdated waste of time. Surely there's got...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) says he will not be casting his vote for President Donald Trump in 2020, citing concerns he had with the president before the 2016 campaign. “I just couldn’t support [Trump] long before he started to run. The birtherism thing was just too much for me. And then it piled on,” Flake, a vocal critic of Trump, told the Washington Post. Flake also warned that a second Trump term could deter younger voters from the GOP, especially on issues concerning the environment and immigration. “So for young people who’ve grown up around minorities or had a...

    One day there will be a dark unending abyss. One without beginning or end, without time or space. A mere black void, of intention and as I gaze upon it, peering into its endless depth I will realize it will have nothing more perverse than what I’ve seen during the great clown age. Make no mistake the headline is not an attempt to compete with the Babylon Bee for the most outrageous satirical piece. The book in question is very much real. Marvel’s recent attempt to cash in on the step-sibling trend on Pornhub has hilarious and massively backfired in...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — The University of Oklahoma released a statement Monday after a history teacher read during class from a historical document that used a racial slur. Interim OU President Joseph Harroz said the faculty member read from a historical document that “repeatedly” used the N-word. He said the professor issued a “trigger warning” before reading but agreed that the word never should have been used.
  • The Babylon Bee Editorial Board Endorses That Lady Who Screamed At The Sky During Trump's Inauguration For The Democratic Primary

    Babylon Bee ^ | January 20, 2019
    Every election, The Babylon Bee editorial board sees fit to endorse the very best choice for the nation. In 2016, back before Seth Dillon bought the site and stopped us from doing Christian satire, we endorsed Kirk Cameron. In 2018, we endorsed the cast of The West Wing for Congress. This was ultimately a mistake because it turns out they are actors and not actual politicians. Oura culpa. This year, we are taking the unprecedented step of endorsing someone who's not even running: that lady who screamed during Trump's inauguration. We feel that this hopelessly triggered androgynous human yelling at...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., is warning his former colleagues in the Senate that they, along with President Trump, will be on trial when the articles of impeachment eventually move from the House to the upper chamber. “President Trump is on trial. But in a very real sense, so are you. And so is the political party to which we belong,” Flake writes in an op-ed for The Washington Post Friday. […] Flake urges Republicans to consider the evidence, but at the same time not to repeat House Republican assertions the president hasn’t done anything wrong: “He has.” “The willingness...

    Former Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake issued a scathing rebuke of those in his party who stand with President Trump during his impeachment. Flake, 56, who did not run for reelection in 2018, published an op-ed titled, "Jeff Flake: The president is on trial. So are my Senate Republican colleagues," in the Washington Post on Friday. "As we approach the time when you do your constitutional duty and weigh the evidence arrayed against the president, I urge you to remember who we are when we are at our best. And I ask you to remember yourself at your most idealistic,"...

    Around 100 students walked out of West Linn High School in Oregon last week in protest of the school’s decision to allow a Chick-fil-A food truck to sell chicken sandwiches during one of the school’s football games, among other microaggressions they said were making LGBT students feel “unsafe.” “West Linn High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance organized the walkout and says the current culture at the school is not safe for LGBTQ+ students. They posted to Instagram saying students are being harassed in sports games and in classrooms,” local news station KATU reported.

    A young Instagram influencer has whinged that learning about World War 2 harms millennials’ mental health. Freddie Bentley, 22, said he thought the schools’ curriculum on the devastating conflict should be cut back because it was “so intense”. Bentley, who appeared on The Circle, told Good Morning Britain today: “It was a hard situation, World War 2, I don't want anyone to think I'm being disrespectful.” He added: “I remember learning it as a child thinking ‘Oh my God it's so intense’.” He thought that any mental health issues a youngster may have could be worsened by learning about the...

    University students have slammed campus bosses for charging £150-a-week for 8x10ft 'pod' accommodation they claim is 'not fit for humans'. The University of West England installed 21 en-suite 'pods' in one of the university's car parks last month in order to meet increased demand. But the units have been branded 'appalling' and 'not mentally viable' by some of the students living there, some of which have already moved out just one month in. First year students at UWE living in its Purbeck Court complex say they have been taunted by their peers for 'not living in real accommodation'.

In No Safe Spaces, comedian and podcast king Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager travel the country, talking to experts on the right and left, tour college campuses and examine their...

    A prominent liberal author has compared the red “Make America Great Again” hats to Nazi swastikas, and told “normal people” — that is, people who don’t support Trump — to stop wearing any kind of red hat, lest they start “making people scared.” Rebecca Makkai, who has been a finalist for both a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award, made the controversial comments on Twitter, according to Fox News. To be clear, Makkai really was talking about all red hats. In fact, she even specifically asked fans of sports teams that wear red hats — such as the Cincinnati Reds...

    A state representative is calling for improvements in postal workers’ “deplorable” working conditions seeing a mail carrier demonstrate how hot mail trucks get by cooking a steak on his dashboard. Shawnna Bolick, a member of the Arizona House of Reps. (District 20), sent a letter to the president of the American Postal Workers Union, Mark Dimondstein on Thursday, urging him to look into the heat-related issue. In her letter, she explained how a worker had sent her daily updates, and photographs of a digital thermometer and the cooking steak, to show how hot his truck gets. “Over the past several...
