    “White House press secretary tweets misleading video from InfoWars personality to justify revoking CNN reporter’s credentials”

    http://www.cnn.com/2018/11/08/media/sarah-sanders-jim-acosta-infowars-video/index.html

    Sarah Sanders is such a soulless slimebag. Infowars is literally an anti-Muslim, anti-Jewish, anti-black, anti-LGBTQIA+, white nationalist hate group that spreads fake news about Sandy Hook being a hoax, the Vegas shooting and 9/11 being false flags, and even about a nonexistent Second Civil War just this year. All that website does is deliberately mislead people into the alt-right pro-Trump way of thinking, no matter how easily provable their lies often are.

    Anyone, including those people claiming to be on the left or anyone who says they are independent that are still attempting to have serious conversations with Alex Jones or Paul Joseph Watson, do not deserve to be taken seriously for a second. They are hopelessly naive about our current cultural climate of factual distortions, systemic bigotries ingrained into the DNA of our society, and conspiracy theories that always seem to have some hateful agenda attached to them, no matter how subtle or blatant they may be.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    “Protesters Threaten Tucker Carlson”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8Q6ekSJxnI

    Dear American “liberals,”

    This is complete bullshit. Harassing Tucker Carlson at his home in a gross and inexcusable move that hurts the image and reputation of the far left. I can’t stand when my supposed side punches themselves in the face with such fascist idiocy, when ironically they claim to be anti-fascists! Leave Tucker and his family alone, especially at their home please. Talk about frustrating.

    Also, with Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell and Elaine Chao, so many others on the right, could all my fellow left-wingers PLEASE stop yelling at and harassing Republicans in public places?! This is deeply embarrassing and does nothing to sway those people or anyone else even remotely towards the left, if anything it hurts our side by making us liberals look exactly like the whiny snowflake bullies that the right always tries to paint us as.

    I had “liberals” in quotes because being an loud asshole in public isn’t liberal at all! It is stupid and completely counterproductive to the anti-Trump resistance. Plus, liberals are (ideally) supposed to support freedom of speech as long as it isn’t libel or willful harassment. If anything, “free speech” should have the line drawn at these FASCIST Carlson harassers who wouldn’t know the Constitution or the crucial value of our 1st Amendment from their own assholes. I’m sometimes ashamed to be a Democrat, this is one of those times. A most sarcastic thanks to all you screaming “SmashRacismDC” idiots! Those pricks along with Antifa are bringing the reputation of the entire Democratic party down by this point and it deeply pisses me off.

    Sincerely,

    A mentally stable and fact-oriented progressive who (get this) is NOT a fascist who harasses those with differing political views in restaurants or at their homes. Pretty crazy right?

    I want to say that I think Boots Riley is an ignorant loser (though I now believe a sincere one) whose wholly dumbass “everything is slavery” worldview makes a mockery of the sane and rational fact-oriented voices on the left. I can respectfully disagree with those who supported Prop 10, but his total ignorance thinking those who voted against it, that WE were the ones who got fooled, that is just too laughable in its irony. News flash Boots, you are the true stooge here, but you sure as fuck aren’t getting paid, besides folks who bought your crappy horseshit movie. Eighth Grade over STBY for the Spirit Awards!

    Comparing McDonald’s to small non-wealthy landlords struggling to get by with BRUTAL rent control that already does exist… It is one thing to be merely ignorant of reality, I can tolerate that since it exists so often in our culture. What I will never tolerate is condescension while not having the facts on your side. The YesOn10 ran a misinformation campaign, homeowners would in fact have suffered. If he actually bothered to read the entire damn Proposition he would have known that fact and thus he would be a heartless asshole for not caring. If he didn’t read it (I bet he just believed what his “woke” friends told him) then screw him even for not being the least bit informed. Being a middle-class landlord is NOT AT ALL THE FREAKING SAME as being a billion dollar corporation. If Boots Riley had any brains he would know that. The dude got duped badly. I already hated Sorry To Bother You before I saw these tweets of his, but now I’ve got a personal motivation to write-in Riley for the Razzies. He has some good ideas about cultural complacency and abuse of the working class by the wealthy, but his facts are so muddled and his worldview so irritatingly simplistic and naive, that anything of meaning he says means nothing to me.

    Miami (AFP) – Florida authorities on Saturday ordered a statewide recount in the contentious races for US Senate and governor, amid tit-for-tat accusations of fraud from the candidates — plunging the state once again into election uncertainty.

    Florida Forced to Recount Votes Because of Broward Blockheads and Palm Beach Pinheads

    FL Election Worker Chelsey Smith Signs Sworn Legal Statement Alleging Broward County Elections Staff Were Filling in Ballots.

    Broward County is part of ground zero in the what’s becoming another Florida elections fiasco. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has declared victory over his Democratic rival, Sen. Bill Nelson, but these late night vote dumps have chipped away at Scott’s lead, we are now in recount territory. The issue is the timing. They’re moving so slow, we don’t know how many votes are left to count, and they increased the number of the ballots cast on Election Day. This is the largest Democratic bastion in the state. Snipes was not giving regular updates on the vote tallies, something the Scott campaign wanted and had to sue in order to achieve compliance. A judge ruled in Scott’s favor yesterday, but Snipes is refusing to comply with the order.

    Is it on purpose? Is it bad luck? Or is it that she’s just terrible at her job? The courts have reprimanded Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes on multiple occasions for veering outside of state laws when it comes to her Election Day operations. She’s sent ballots with duplicate pages, left off a ballot initiative completely, which prompted a lawsuit, and she illegally destroyed congressional ballots in 2016 (via Miami Herald).

    Unfortunately Ms. Snipes’ incompetence that will play a role in this second  midterms.

    Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Lieutenant Governor of Florida ripped Brenda Snipes for her latest illegal stunt.
    CARLOS LOPEZ-CANTERA: “Let this sink in. Brenda Snipes is now publicly recommending to count what have been independently verified as ILLEGAL VOTES! This is madness.”

    Is Brenda Snipes terrible at her job? I think so. I also think that EVERY single vote should be counted, with no exceptions. Neither of those things contradicts the other.

    Personally, I doubt Gillum will take the lead even in a recount over DeSantis, but Nelson might pull off an upset over Scott. Overcoming a 15,000 vote difference is doable in my opinion.
