Anti-Semites Commit Atrocity, Muslims Pick Up the Pieces

In yet another installment of "white supremacists commit horrible crimes upon oppressed community and other oppressed community swoops in to help because they get it":

"Vandalized" is putting it very lightly.

The effort organized by Muslim American activists Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi was launched this week to fund the repairs of nearly 200 headstones that were damaged and toppled in the Chesed Shel Emeth Society cemetery in the St. Louis suburb of University City in Missouri. 
The fundraiser exceeded its goal of $20,000 so fast, it has expanded into an effort to support Jewish community centers that have been targets of anti-Semitism. 
The vandal or vandals destroyed more that 170 headstones at the cemetery, according Anita Feigenbaum, the cemetery's executive director. 
Members of the community have been left rattled.

To be clear. 170 headstones in a Jewish cemetery were destroyed. The graves of the people's loved ones were desecrated, toppled, and broken. This happened at the same time as the fourth wave of coordinated bomb threats against multiple Jewish community organizations since the election of Lord Dampnut.

And while we white gentiles have sat around and done nothing about it, once again the Muslim community stepped up to help.

Sarsour of MPower Change and El-Messidi of CelebrateMercy organized the crowdfunding campaign to support the vandalized cemetery. 
Their goal of reaching $20,000 by the end of March was surpassed in three hours, with donations at nearly $60,000 and rising early Wednesday.

It's really fucking sad that this needs to be pointed out again and again due to the fact that people so readily demonize the Muslim community in this country. But Islam is one of the most peaceful religions around and it very much emphasizes the importance of charity and taking care of one's neighbors. No matter who they are. And Muslims largely do a LOT better than white Christians when it comes to following the actual tenets of their religion.

Both the news of the attack (the terrorist attack, let's be real) against Jewish people and the help from the Muslim community need to be spread. Jewish communities are under severe threat (once again) from the rise of white supremacists and neo-nazis in the U.S. and abroad, and of course we know how Muslims are being treated right now. We need to protect both of these communities at all costs.

Screenshot text: "Have you notices that these little cuck carts are starting to appear in stores across the US more now? I think that it is a sign that there are more single people shopping for themselves than shopping for a family. How can we stop the cuck cart phenomenon?"


It's like peering into an alien world on these forums. Being single makes you a cuck now? Because that means that a strong majority of the people who post there...

No use trying to make sense out of it. I'm just going to keep laughing. Cuck carts.

Standing Rock Camps to Be "Evacuated" Tomorrow

In this case, "evacuated" means that the protesters there will be forcibly removed and likely harmed/arrested if they do not leave willingly.

The governor of North Dakota has once again issued an evacuation order, and with the lessened attention on Standing Rock and without even the tacit "support" of the Obama administration, it's very likely that they will go through with it. This could be the last stand of the Standing Rock water protectors. Many people left during the worst of the harsh winter and I don't know if enough veterans have returned to make any kind of a difference. With media attention being constantly wholly taken up by Lord Dampnut's unrelenting fuckery, I doubt even the help of veterans will be enough to stop this assault.

I don't know for sure what's going to happen. I don't know how many people are still there. All I've seen reported is that those left are currently surrounded by militarized police. I'm afraid for their safety and general well-being. I'm deeply saddened that their monumental efforts and months of sacrifice seem to have been for nothing. I hate that this will be yet another assault upon the people that we white invaders committed genocide upon, enslaved, and continually shat upon for centuries. 

All I can do now is remind every person who reads this to make sure to include Native Americans and all indigenous persons in their activism, in social justice, and in the fight against bigotry. They have suffered so much under us white people. I hope that some day we will give them back the land that is rightfully theirs and put them in charge of the fate of the nation. I consider that to be the only fair option.

You can see possibly the last pleading message of the water protectors here:

If you have the ability and wanted to stand with the water protectors against yet further invasion and imperialist violence, please go now. If you can make it by tomorrow, please go. Part of me wants to drop everything and go, but I just don't have the resources to make it in time.

My heart is with them. I'm sorry we failed you again.



This may be the ultimate in cis dude fuckery. In cis dudes thinking they know everything about everything while demonstrating that they don't know shit and horrifying the fuck out of the rest of us. If you get a period, prepare for horror.

A Male Chiropractor Thinks Women Should Literally Glue Their Labia Closed With Special Lipstick


The best (worst?) part about this is that the inventor of the snatch glue stick had the fucking audacity to be like "why didn't women every think of this? Probs because they're too distracted by their periods."

Meanwhile, over on Facebook, women are (rightfully) furious over the idea of a man who doesn't have periods of his own telling them to glue their labia shut. Commenting from the Mensez account, Dopps addressed their concerns in a comment of his own on the ad captured by Butler (sic throughout): 
'Yes, I am a man and you as a woman, should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn't. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25% of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to me far more creative than men, but their periods that stifle them and play with their heads.'

Let's count up all the things about this that are fucking ridiculous.

  1. Cis dude thinks that people who have periods are thinking about being on their periods 24/7 while on them, including, apparently, while we're asleep.
  2. It doesn't occur to cis dude that we didn't think of the sticky beaver solution because the very idea is horrifying beyond all reason.
  3. It doesn't occur to cis dude that walking around with our labias glued together and our vajayjays full of blood sloshing around, squishing and squirshing every time we sit down might be extremely, intensely uncomfortable in a way that even the shittiest tampon would never be.
  4. Cis dude apparently doesn't realize that pee does not come out of the cooter and therefore could not act as an effective muff glue solvent.
  5. I am 100% convinced that blood absolutely would leak through this torture device because I'm familiar with the anatomy of my labia.
  6. Cis dude thinks he knows labias better than people who have them.
  7. It doesn't occur to cis dude that there are other symptoms that come with periods other than blood coming out the hoo-ha, some of which would not go well with having our hot pockets plugged up for hours.
  8. It doesn't occur to cis dude that all I and every other period-haver can think of is sneezing.
  9. "Mensez Technologies" sounds less like "menses" and more like "men says." 
  10. There is a thing called a menstrual cup that does essentially the same thing with none of the horror of having one's twat glued shut.

There may be more but I just ahhhhh I gotta go think about something else. 

The Proper Way to Handle Sexual Harassment

This is an extremely satisfying story that I sorely needed to hear.

Princess Nokia ‘punches’ audience member after ‘public display of sexism’ at Cambridge University

The New York rapper performed at a charity fashion show on 15 February but left the stage after three songs, according to a post on the university’s forum for women and non-binary people of colour, Fly, when a white male student “harassed her during her performance” and mouthed “dirty obscenities like, show me your tits.’” 
The rapper, real name Destiny Frasqueri, allegedly asked the audience member if he was being “disrespectful” before adding, “I’m so sorry, but when a white boy disrespects you, you punch him in the fucking face.”

Oh, Princess Nokia. Don't be sorry. Never be sorry for punching disrespectful white boys in the face.

The post on Fly, written by Richelle George and Jason Okundaye, described meeting Frasqueri after the event, who regretted that the set had ended abruptly but said the incident had put her in a position “where her safety and comfort were severely compromised”. The post added that she had a “‘zero tolerance’ stance towards ‘instances of sexism and sexual harassment’”, and called the incident “a disgraceful public display of sexism and misogynoir.”

This woman is now my favorite. Excuse me while I go listen to all of her songs on Spotify all day long.

Video of Milo Yiannopoulos passionately defending pedophilia resurfaces

CPAC boots Milo Yiannopoulos over pedophilia comments

Milo Yiannopoulos book deal cancelled by Simon & Schuster after 'pro-paedophilia' video controversy

Breitbart employees threaten exit over Yiannopoulos

This all happening after he already lost a deal with Disney and lost YouTube funding. His entire life is crumbling and it's magnificent. The only not magnificent thing is that it took him defending having sex with 13-year-olds to finally get the right to reject him. Horrible misogyny, racism, doxxing trans kids, rank anti-semitism, and generally being a nazi fuck was all fine. But at least we can finally see one of these fake jokesters who are really dedicated to spreading and normalizing nationalism and bigotry get what's been coming to him.

Wishes so rarely come true.

Texas Senator Shatters Table Trying to Silence Woman Testifying Against Anti-Abortion Bill

"Shatters" isn't the right word there. Here's a photo of the table:

Still, that's pretty well cracked. And if it's normally used to gavel on, I'm guessing that can't be easy to do.

Hennessy verbally shredded Sen. Huffines bill against second-trimester abortions. Her voice shook with anger as she scolded lawmakers for openly putting women in danger. 
"Ms. Hennessy —" Schwertner interrupted a minute into her testimony. "Your time is done." 
But Hennessy went on, saying, "I urge you to all stop playing with reproductive health care like it's your own political puppet." That's when Schwertner dropped the gavel — so hard that he shattered the glass table before him.  
"Your time is done," he repeated.

I love that he just repeats that instead of acknowledging the fact that he BROKE THE FUCKING TABLE.

Cis "pro-life" men have always been violently opposed to letting women and other people who can get pregnant speak on behalf of their own bodily autonomy. People go over their speaking time limits all the time, you don't need to break a fucking table about it, damn. For example, the "pro-life" speaker who had just been up went for double the amount of their allotted time, and nothing was broken over it!

I think this just shows that men, particularly cis "pro-life" men, are too emotional to be allowed into a leadership position. Also, if the table breaking was just a coincidence, I think that actually means that god is pro-choice.

Alt-Right Watch: Nazis Admit "Jokes" Normalize Bigotry


You may have heard that YouTube personality and professional piece of shit PewDiePie has been scorned by both Disney and YouTube, with Disney severing ties entirely and YouTube cancelled the second season of his show available on the paid YouTube Red program, plus took away his "Google preferred" advertising status - basically relegating him to the status of just another dude with a YouTube channel.

This reportedly went down because the asshole paid some guys to hold up a sign that said "Death to all Jews" and another guy to dress as Jesus and say that "Hitler did nothing wrong."

Horrible, yes, but not actually out of the norm for PewDiePie, who has been saying things like this on his YouTube shows for years. Neither YouTube nor Disney said why they suddenly care about anti-semitism now when they've both ignored (or worse) this problem in the past, but my guess is that it has something to do with the current political climate in the U.S.

Predictably, PewDiePie's millions (yes millions) of fans are very upset about this and using the classic "it's just a joke" mantra to excuse his behavior. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to explain how words have consequences and bigoted jokes aren't harmless, but why listen to me when the head of the online neo-Nazi base the Daily Stormer has explained it himself:

PewDiePie’s comments have made him popular with neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer, which has run a series of articles about the YouTuber, describing him as “our guy”. 
“He could be doing all this only to cause a stir things up and get free publicity,” wrote the Daily Stormer. 
“Ultimately, it doesn’t matter, since the effect is the same; it normalizes Nazism, and marginalizes our enemies.” 
The site has even added a banner describing itself as “the world’s #1 PewDiePie fansite”.

And there you have it, straight from the Nazi's mouth. "Trolls" like PewDiePie normalize the horrible shit they "joke" about and work to marginalize the people they shit on, and no amount of "just kidding" stops that. Why do you think the same people who engage in this kind of "troll" activity almost inevitably end up becoming white nationalists/neo-Nazis? Why do you think Nazis have been encouraging this behavior all along? Why do you think the popularity of so-called "troll culture" has been so swiftly followed up by a drastic increase in white supremacist and neo-Nazi numbers?

You can deny it until you're blue in the face, but that's just gonna make me assume that you're already a Nazi.
