JEWS AGAIN HEAD THE LIST OF GROUPS TARGETED BY HATE CRIMES IN TORONTO

No.247357 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
It seems as though the more things change, the more they stay the same: continuing a trend that dates back to 2008, Jews were again the single most targeted group for hate crimes in Toronto.

According to the Toronto Police Service’s 2017 Annual Hate Crime Statistical Report, the number of hate crimes in the city jumped 28 per cent, from 145 in 2016, to 186 last year. Jews were the victims in 53 of those occurrences, or nearly 29 per cent.

“In 2017, the Jewish community, followed by the black community, the Muslim community and the LGBTQ community were the groups most frequently victimized,” the report states.

The jackass goblin Verne Troyer killed himself today.

No.247372 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today.

Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible. Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message everyday.

He inspired people around the world with his drive, determination, and attitude. On film & television sets, commercial shoots, at comic-con’s & personal appearances, to his own YouTube videos, he was there to
show everyone what he was capable of doing.

Depression and Suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.

It’s becoming clear that Trump won’t run in 2020

No.247280 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
It has been nearly three years since Donald Trump descended his faux-gold escalator to announce an improbable run for president, and Republican politicians seem just as baffled by the reality TV star’s future as they were the day he first launched this publicity stunt gone wildly wrong.

It is true that GOP leaders stand silent as President Trump trashes the rule of law, attacks federal judges and declares America’s free press the “enemy of the people.” These lap dogs even remain muzzled as younger Americans are chained to a future of crippling debt. And they shame the memory of the first Republican president — who gave his life ending slavery — by marching alongside a bumbling bigot who labels Hispanics “breeders” and “rapists,” seeks to bar tens of millions of Muslims from entering the country, and defends white supremacy in the ugly aftermath of Charlottesville.

And yet these same morally enfeebled enablers have become muted when asked whether they’ll support their fearless leader’s reelection bid.

“Look, I’m focused on opioids,” muttered Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, suggesting that a U.S. senator is not mentally adept enough to fight a drug epidemic while also figuring out whether he backs a president in his own party. Alexander is not the only GOP senator to offer up tortured answers to this simple question.

North and South Korea reportedly set to announce official end to war

No.246220 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/17/north-and-south-korea-reportedly-set-to-announce-official-end-to-war.html

Ahead of a summit next week between North Korean premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-In, lawmakers from the neighboring states were thought to be negotiating the details of a joint statement that could outline an end to the military conflict between the two countries.

Pyongyang and Seoul have technically been at war since the 1950-1953 Korean conflict ended with a truce — and not a peace treaty.

Kim and Moon could also discuss returning the heavily fortified demilitarized zone separating them to its original state.

Problem with a possum: Woman calls 911 for rodent in her home

No.246678 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A Lantana woman is recovering from a problem with a 'possum.
Saturday she had an odd request for 911 dispatchers--to get a possum out of her bedroom.
CBS12 just got the 911 call from the funny encounter.

“ I don’t know how to explain this I’m a single woman, I’m 53 years old I think it’s a possum,” said Dagne “Dee” Kuiper in the call.

Kuiper found the surprise in her nightstand.
She says she came across an opossum in her home the night before, but she was OK with that one.
“It was so cute last night he’s little but I don’t know if it’s the same one now,” Kuiper said to the dispatcher.
But the one in her nightstand made itself too comfortable and she said it peed on her bed.
The dispatcher did her best to keep Kuiper calm, but even she couldn’t hold in her laughter.
She was able to her sense of humor too.

“The one time I needed a man in my life is right now. What do I do with him the other four days?” said Kuiper in the call.
Luckily for Kuiper, an officer was able to come and remove the opossum.
She says it didn’t have rabies, but she’s still looking for that man to help her out at least one day a week.

Jared Holt Of Right Wing Watch Is A Racist

No.247356 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Lily white, militant gay propagandist, Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch is attacking a black guy for asking for a cup of coffee.

Apparently he feels that blacks always want handouts.

Why are Leftists so racist?

Like deranged masters, white liberals savagely ride the backs of blacks and other minority groups to race to the moral high ground.

Trolls spread hateful fake Starbucks coupon for 'people of color only'

No.246954 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A fake Starbucks coupon offering free coffee to “people of color only” to say “we’re sorry” is the latest salvo in an ongoing meme warfare campaign.

A fake Starbucks coupon offering free coffee to “people of color only” to say “we’re sorry” is the latest salvo in an ongoing meme warfare campaign that exploits trending news topics to spread messages of hate and divisiveness from the fringes into the mainstream consciousness.

Like-minded members replied back with hoots of laughter, racist and homophobic slurs, and offered design tweaks to make the offer look more official, such as applying the Starbucks corporate font or optimizing the coupon for display on mobile. “To be credible, it needs one of those things for mobile phones,” one poster said. Another obliged, posting a QR code that translated to the n-word.

t’s not the first time Starbucks has been the target of meme-makers — after the company denounced President Donald Trump’s plan to end the controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program last year, a 4chan user created fliers for a scam “Dreamer Day” promotion, offering 40 percent off beverages for undocumented immigrants.

Jeff Giesea, an information warfare expert who supported Trump, said the trolls can be thought of as “guerilla soldiers of the information environment” practicing “asymmetric activism” to express their perspective, as well as delight in the “lulz” from provoking predictable outrage from the left and mainstream media — ginning up more amplification and coverage in the process.

Because the memes start on anonymous message boards and then progress to high-traffic link-sharing sites like Reddit and Twitter that allow for anonymous users and are often the breeding ground for trending social media topics, it’s usually impossible to unmask the originators or their motives.
