Let’s not kid ourselves. These recent acts that are being caught on camera of white people calling the police or generally harassing people of color have always happened. It’s just that everybody has access to a video camera in an instant and social media.
I love the man who isn’t having anything of this pedantic racist’s shit and buys all of the candy.
And then we have these asshats:
When I first started watching the video I was so angry at the racist who is attacking an American citizen for wearing a Puerto Rican flag. (Would he be upset with someone wearing a Texas flag?) But then my anger was redirected to the cop who did absolutely nothing in helping the woman who was begging for his assistance. He even turns his back at one point.
TL:DR Attention seeking couple on a flight asks woman to switch seats and then takes creepshots of her and tweets a fictional love story narrative as she has a conversation with the guy in the next seat which goes viral and results in numerous media appearances for attention-whoring couple and the man. The woman who switched seats so that they could sit together? She gets doxxed and gets so many threats that she has to leave the internet altogether.
But the female romantic interest featured in the story, Helen, apparently didn’t want anything to do with it. She declined to be interviewed by the “Today Show” and reportedly deleted her social media accounts after people discovered her real identity and harassed her.
Oh and the planebae romeo has allegations of racial bias against him.
So maybe don’t try to get famous by doing a stalking narrative by invading people’s privacy. Is this really that hard?
Good. That racist little shit doesn’t deserve to eat in peace:
The Washington Post reports that the Miller was picking up $80 worth of sushi at an unnamed Washington D.C. restaurant when a bartender followed him out on the street. When Miller turned around to see who was yelling at him, the bartender flipped up both middle fingers and started shouting profanities. Miller later told members of his inner circle that when he got back to his apartment, he just threw the food away. Clearly, the White House staffer was pretty shook by the heckler.
Mitch McConnell is also having some restaurant woes.
The Brexit people certainly know how to leave stuff in a hurry:
Boris Johnson has resigned as foreign secretary, becoming the third minister in 24 hours to walk out of the government rather than back Theresa May’s plans for a soft Brexit.
The prime minister hammered out a compromise with her deeply divided cabinet in an all-day meeting at Chequers on Friday, but after consulting friends and allies since, Johnson decided he could not promote the deal.
A Downing Street spokesman said: “This afternoon, the prime minister accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson as foreign secretary. His replacement will be announced shortly. The prime minister thanks Boris for his work.”
I do not watch any of Trump’s Nurembergish rallies. It seems like he is having more and more of them lately and there’s only so much of him I can take without wanting to destroy my tv. But I did happen to look through this twitter thread of some of the more outrageous statements that he is making at these rallies. The entire thread is here but I’ll post some of the crazier quotes below.
I think he’s completely insane now. I don’t even think he is lying anymore. He believes any hot air that exits his racist, sexist, xenophobic larynx now. And the GOP will goose step along no matter what he does. We are seriously in a bad spot right now.
