YouTuber Gives Fake Award to Far-Right Activist Who Calls Greta Thunberg an ‘Autistic Fucking Wench’

From Gizmodo:

YouTuber Josh Pieters has revealed that he pranked far-right British commentator Katie Hopkins by flying her to Prague and presenting her with a fake award. Hopkins, who is frequently retweeted by President Trump and was recently suspended on Twitter, was awarded with the Campaign to Unify the Nation Trophy, abbreviated as C.U.N.T. And if you think that’s mean, just wait until you hear her hate-filled acceptance speech for the award.

The 26-year-old Pieters explained the prank in a new video on his YouTube channel, which has over 1.2 million subscribers. And it was a surprisingly large undertaking to convince Hopkins that she was getting a real award. Pieters organized flights, hotels, a dinner at the Four Seasons, and even hired actors to play members of his fake advocacy group, the Cape Town Collective For the Freedom of Speech.

Rashida Tlaib boos Hillary Clinton from stage at Bernie Sanders Iowa event

WTF Democrats? Whatever your feelings on Hillary are, this isn’t the way to unite an already splintered Democratic party. And Hillary isn’t even running. This is the same kind of shit that happened last time surrounding Bernie’s followers who ended up not voting or voting Jill Stein which got us into the current situation with the stable genius.

CLIVE, Iowa — Campaign surrogate Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Friday night booed Hillary Clinton from the stage of a Sen. Bernie Sanders event.

With Sanders stuck in Washington due to the Senate impeachment trial, the campaign has had to lean more heavily on surrogates to energize voters in the days leading up to the caucus.

As part of the Friday night concert featuring indie folk band Bon Iver, Tlaib participated in a panel discussion along with House colleagues Reps. Ilhan Omar and Pramila Jayapal.

As they were about to wrap up, moderator Dionna Langford, an Iowa-based activist, brought up recent comments by Hillary Clinton that nobody liked Sanders. At the mention of Clinton’s name, scattered boos could be heard among the fired-up crowd.

“We’re not gonna boo; we’re not gonna boo,” Langford said, attempting to calm the audience. “We’re classy here.”

Tlaib interjected, “I’ll boo.” Then she booed from stage, leading the crowd in another chorus of boos.
