Julian Assange Rushes To Defend Homocon Milo

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange decided to get in on Milo Yiannopoulos‘ most recent controversy by denouncing the “liberals” who are happy that the Breitbart tech editor has been exiled from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Yiannopoulos was meant to give a speech at CPAC this week, but after a video surfaced of him apparently defending pedophilia, he was disinvited from the event. Yiannopoulos has stated that he is “horrified” by pedophilia, but the impact of the video cost him his book deal with publisher Simon & Schuster, and there are indications that Breitbart might be thinking about firing him.

Trump supporters hope Californians will drown in the Oroville Dam crisis in the counties...

that voted for him.

Trump fans are calling for Californians to drown amid concerns the Oroville Dam will collapse – even though the surrounding counties voted Republican.

Hundreds of thousands of Northern Californians have been evacuated from the area because of flood dangers, so Trump supporters, assuming everyone in the state is liberal, are tweeting in the hope they will be “washed away” and “drown.”

The reasoning seems to be: Californians are liberal and don’t like Trump, so they shouldn’t expect any federal help if their homes are demolished by a 30-foot wall of water.

But they should have checked the electoral map – the counties around the Oroville Dam all voted Trump in 2016.

Conservative Comic Depicts Besty DeVos As Girl In Iconic Civil Rights Painting

A cartoon depicting Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, who faced protests last week that briefly prevented her from entering a school, in an iconic civil rights painting made waves on the Internet Tuesday.

The cartoon, created by artist Glenn McCoy, depicted Devos as the African-American girl in Norman Rockwell's 1964 painting "The Problem We All Live With," who is walking to an all-white school amid protests and violent resistance to school de-segregation.



To say people were unhappy with the comparison is an understatement.

Geraldo Rivera resigns from Yale post over Calhoun College rechristening

What a piece of vomit....

After the university changed its residential college’s name, Rivera said Yale was too politically correct for him.

On Sunday, media personality Geraldo Rivera announced he had stepped down from his role as an associate fellow at Yale, following the university’s decision to rename a college that had once been dedicated to a staunch slavery supporter.

Yale University announced it would change the name of Calhoun College to instead honor Grace Murray Hopper, who was one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer during World War II and also helped develop the Mark II and Mark III computers. The school had originally been named for John C. Calhoun, who held several high-profile positions in government, including vice president, senator, and secretary of state. Calhoun called slavery a “positive good.”

Rivera described the university’s decision to cease honoring a champion of slavery and instead recognize a female computer scientist as “intolerant” and “lame.”

DU this poll: Do you approve of the job President Trump has done so far?

So much has happened since Donald Trump was inaugurated as president, it's hard to believe it's been only a little over two weeks.
There has been an endless stream of news, what with daily executive orders, constant protests, numerous confirmation hearings, presidential tweets and a nomination for the Supreme Court.

A lot of it has been overshadowed with the controversy over Trump's executive order on ceasing immigration from seven nations and the chaos it caused at the nation's airports and on his plans to build a wall at the Mexican border.
