White man stabbed by left wing terrorists for having short hair; liberal media falls silent

>This Colorado man is avowedly not a neo-Nazi. But he believes his long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides haircut got him mistaken for one — and nearly stabbed to death by a confused anti-fascist

>Joshua Witt, 26, escaped his brush with hairdo-doom with a defensive slice to the hand and three stitches.

>“Apparently, my haircut is considered a neo-Nazi statement,” he told The Post Saturday, as his account on Facebook garnered 20,000 shares.

This is The Resistance's America, where you get stabbed by left wing terrorists for having a haircut that annoys them. Why isn't this all over the news? Or does political violence only count if it's right on left?

Alisa Norris, a well-known cosplayer, also known as Alisa Kiss turned na

No.170052 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Alisa Norris, a well-known cosplayer, also known as Alisa Kiss, who has appeared in costume at many comic con-style events over the years, as many characters — though Supergirl appears more than others — and has a strong following on social media. She has extended that appeal into other areas of her business.

But then she talked about going to Charlottesville for the marches the other day. Nothing unusual about that, many people have. But it seems she wasn’t on the side one might expect to find Supergirl.

Woman charged with groping police officer; said he was ‘hot’

No.170067 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
http://www.statesman.com/news/crime--law/report-woman-charged-with-groping-police-officer-said-was-hot/nVI2WJnpqsFZMRKZi7cowO/
A woman who was arrested Friday on outstanding warrants picked up another charge for allegedly grabbing the genitals of a University of Texas police officer and calling him ‘hot.’.

According to the affidavit, Bonnie Fay Terraciano, 43, was loitering outside of a CVS drug store at 2200 Guadalupe St. when the officer approached her at about 11 p.m. and asked about an open can of beer sitting next to her.

When a background search revealed Terraciano had outstanding warrants for public intoxication and interfering with a roadway, she was arrested and placed in the back seat of the officer’s vehicle, an arrest report says. But the woman fell over and landed on the ground. As the officer assisted her back into the vehicle, the affidavit says Terraciano grabbed him and twisted.

The officer, Alan Martin, reported that it hurt.

On the ride to jail, Terraciano allegedly told the officer, “why are you good looking but so mean? You’re hot, man, that’s why I grabbed you!” She added that she figured Martin would enjoy it.

Terraciano, who is homeless, was charged with assault on a public servant, a third-degree felony. She was booked on $15,000 bond.

Elon Musk leads 116 experts calling for outright ban on killer robots

No.170034 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
'Some of the world’s leading robotics and artificial intelligence pioneers are calling on the United Nations to ban the development and use of killer robots.

'Tesla’s Elon Musk and Google’s Mustafa Suleyman are leading a group of 116 specialists from across 26 countries who are calling for the ban on autonomous weapons.

'The UN recently voted to begin formal discussions on such weapons which include drones, tanks and automated machine guns. Ahead of this the group of founders of AI and robotics companies have sent an open letter to the UN calling for it to prevent the arms race that’s currently underway for killer robots.

'In their letter, the founders warn the review conference of the Convention on Conventional Weapons that this arms race threatens to usher in the “third revolution in warfare” after gunpowder and nuclear arms.

'The founders wrote: “Once developed, lethal autonomous weapons will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend. These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways.

'“We do not have long to act. Once this Pandora’s box is opened, it will be hard to close.”'

Not to be sniffed at: long-lost Banksy artwork is rediscovered

No.169601 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
'A Banksy painting that appeared on a public toilet block in east London, only to disappear after it was vandalised, spray-jetted by the local council and then painted over, has been rediscovered over a decade later.

Known as the Snorting Copper and considered an exemplary image by the elusive graffiti artist, it shows a uniformed policeman on his hands and knees snorting a line of cocaine.

Although the painting has been valued for insurance purposes at £1.25m, Jonathan Ellis and David Kyte, who uncovered the painting after they bought the disused site, say they have no intention of selling it. Instead, they are restoring it and will return it to its original site in Shoreditch, Hackney, so that the general public can see it. The unveiling will take place on 5 October.

“It’s an amazing piece,” Ellis told the Guardian. “We’ve had offers to sell it. But we want to put it back. We think that’s the right thing to do for the public to enjoy it. I’m proud to be able to do something like that.”'

WOMAN WINS ART PRIZE FOR INSEMINATING HERSELF WITH DOG SPERM

No.166546 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
The Slovenian artist Maja Smrekar was awarded the Golden Nica at the Prix Ars Electronica in Linz for the controversial project "ARTE_mis".

What's the matter? In the project, an artist's egg was "gutted" by experts in a laboratory and a body cell of her dog was inserted into it. The result is a new cell, which could theoretically create a mixture of humans and dogs. The survival chances of this being would be higher than ours, "said the Ars Electronica Center (AEC) in a press release," because this mix would treat its environment more humane than we do. "

Prohibited, but allowed
The FPÖ National Councilors Walter Rosenkranz, Werner Neubauer and a further member of parliament now submitted a parliamentary question to Thomas Drozda (SPÖ), Federal Minister for Art and Culture, "regarding strange art understanding at the Prix Ars Electronica".

The deputies want to know from Drozda, among other things, why such projects are forbidden in research, but are allowed in art. Furthermore, they asked whether the winning project had been funded with public funds and the criteria selected by the jury.

Political responsibility
"This project clearly exceeded the boundaries of morality and ethics," says Neubauer in a conversation with "Heute". He criticizes the responsible persons: "The fact that the politically responsible Linz councilor Lang-Mayerhofer and the representatives of the religious communities have not spoken up to now is unbelievable." In any case, he would also deal with the Bioethics Commission.

Photo of ‘Antifa’ man assaulting officer was doctored, analysis shows

No.169126 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
>An image that appeared to capture a member of an anti-fascist group beating a U.S. police officer with a club during a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is fake.

>The doctored photograph, the Associated Press and Snopes.com found, turned out to be a Getty Image shot in 2009 during clashes between police officers and protesters in Athens, Greece. An “Antifa,” or “antifacist,” logo was digitally superimposed onto the jacket of a protester, who is seen attacking an officer with a blunt object.

Doesn't it concern anyone else that the right constantly claims to have the moral high ground when they've been shown to spread such blatant, easily disproven lies without any conscience?

Bannon, basically: Trump’s campaign was a fraud

No.169827 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/08/19/bannon-basically-trumps-campaign-was-a-fraud/

>Stephen K. Bannon says he will be “covering” for President Trump on the outside, but the former White House chief strategist made a breathtakingly candid admission in the hours after his exit on Friday.

>“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon told the Weekly Standard. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”

>What, exactly, did Bannon mean? Well, he got specific:

>“I just think his ability to get anything done — particularly the bigger things, like the wall, the bigger, broader things that we fought for, it’s just going to be that much harder,” Bannon said of Trump.

>And what will be the effect of the remaining White House advisers on Trump?

>“I think they’re going to try to moderate him,” Bannon said. “I think he’ll sign a clean debt ceiling; I think you’ll see all this stuff. His natural tendency — and I think you saw it this week on Charlottesville — his actual default position is the position of his base, the position that got him elected. I think you’re going to see a lot of constraints on that. I think it’ll be much more conventional.”

>The line about Trump's “natural tendency” is exactly what Bannon meant about covering for the president. When Trump fails to deliver something he promised, as a candidate, Bannon will assure the faithful that their president's heart was in the right place but that the swamp got in his way.

Trump is Totally Wrong, Anti-Racist Protesters Actually Did Have Permits

No.169200 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
https://lawnewz.com/high-profile/trump-is-totally-wrong-anti-racist-protesters-actually-did-have-permits/

As a federal judge recently noted in a ruling for “Unite the Right” organizer Jason Kessler, Charlottesville granted permits for counter-protesters too. During a fiery back and forth that drew heavy criticism, Trump wrongly claimed that only the white supremacists had the right to legally protest. That’s just not true.

LawNewz has confirmed that two permits were granted for counter protesters in the city. According to records obtained by LawNewz, Walter Heinecke applied and was approved for two permits for his group, Peoples Action For Racial Justice.

“I did get the permits to protest at two adjacent parks,” he said in an interview with LawNewz.com. “Once again, who is the generator of fake news? The president is.”

Heinecke received approval to hold his events at two nearby parks, McGuffy and Justice. Kessler, the organizer of the rally, held a permit for Emancipation Park (formerly Robert E. Lee Park).

“I wish he (the president) would stop exacerbating racial discrimination in our country. If he doesn’t, my next permit will be for the White House and I’ll bring a million people,” Heinecke said.

On top of that, counter protesters don’t need a permit to enter a public park to begin with.

“Please bear in mind that people do not need a permit to enter a public park, even when another event is scheduled to take place there, nor are they required to have one to be on streets or sidewalks adjacent to or outside the park,” Miriam Dickler, the Charlottesville communications director said in an email to LawNewz.com.
