Is EKRE going to become a threat for Estonia's progressivism and pro-European stance?

EKRE’s popularity gained a significant boost from the formal recognition of same-sex unions in 2014 (which made Estonia the first central or eastern European country to adopt such legislation) and the outbreak of the migration crisis in Europe in 2015. “If you’re black, go back” and “I want Estonia to be a white country” were just some of the comments Martin Helme made in 2013.
The paroles couldn't be stupider, this is blatantly racist as f*ck... How would something like this ever enter a modern European parliament? This is comparably disappointing for the European hopeful in Eastern Europe, besieged by the threat from the East.
Today there are just 206 registered refugees of which only 107 are still in Estonia. All others left.

TX, TN, AZ turn towards further voting restrictions after surge in Democratic voters

In Texas, state lawmakers are considering adding criminal penalties for people who improperly fill out voter registration forms. Arizona Republicans are proposing new voting rules that could make it more complicated to cast an early ballot. In Tennessee, GOP lawmakers are considering a bill that would fine groups involved in voter registration drives that submit incomplete forms.
This is many Republicans' exact comprehension of how Democracy works: When the opposite side experiences a surge in votes, restrict their voters' rights to vote, so that they will improbably be capable of filling out a ballot correctly. Then, you are going to see your party winning in the next election. It might be autocratic and highly unconstitutional, but who cares when you're ruling?
Voting groups in the state say they are concerned this effort could result in jail time for people who don't properly fill out their voter registration forms. Currently, providing false

Two fact-checks on the Notre Dame burning yesterday

1. Misleading tweet by Faith J. Goldy, trying to allege jihadists for arson: Truth Or Fiction?

However, the second tweet received under two dozen shares, while the misleading one was shared thousands of times. Moreover, when screenshots of the tweet migrated to platforms like Facebook, they lacked a live link to the article, the “correction,” and the complete headline which clearly contradicted Goldy’s claims.

Old news stories with headlines that do not specify a timeframe are often weaponized by disinformation purveyors to great effect, as many people cannot or will not read the linked story because of time constraints or a paywall. Newsrooms can avoid this and other pitfalls by changing the headlines on old stories and clearly labeling publishing dates. We detail this and other easy methods for stopping or s

Runaway Negro Creek changed to Freedom Creek due to offensive name

On Thursday the U.S. Board on Geographic Names voted to make things right and change the name of the waterway called Runaway Negro Creek, to Freedom Creek, after residents lobbied to remove the culturally insensitive term, Savannah Now reports.

According to a press release from Sen. Lester Jackson (D-District 2), the name change was originally proposed after a public interest meeting during the summer of 2017, where residents voiced concerns saying it was culturally insensitive.
And only two years later, they finally made it, found this creek a new name. And so creative!, to call it Freedom Creek, because African-American slaves may have found their freedom when running down this creek. Great!

Graffiti punished by reading - 'It worked!' says prosecutor | BBC News

Backlash after Ilhan Omar-9/11 reference grows

The video Drumpf retweeted on Friday pulls a snippet of Omar's recent speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in which she described the 2001 attack on New York's World Trade Center as "some people did something" and includes news footage of the hijacked planes hitting the Twin Towers.
Remember: This is like sending Trump death threats after he failed to fully punish the attacker at the Unite The Right rallye. It didn't happen. Why? Because left-wingers follow by a codex of minimum decency. The right fails to grow this certain amount of decency. Therefore, Ms. Omar's life is threatened by now.
The Muslim politician also tweeted a quote from former President George W Bush, who said days after the attacks: "The people - and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!"
"Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack?" Omar tweeted. "What if he was a Muslim."

Pete Buttigiegs (D - IN) perfect image starts to crack

An Indiana judge will rule soon on whether to release five cassette tapes of secretly recorded conversations between South Bend police officers that led to the 2012 demotion of Police Chief Darryl Boykins, the city’s first ever black police chief.

Buttigieg’s critics say he’s gone to great lengths to conceal the contents of the tapes, which some believe could include racist language by white police officers.

“There’s a level of frustration,” said Karen White, a city councilwoman and Democrat who is black. “We want this issue to be brought to closure to ensure this issue does not polarize our community further. We have a right to know [what’s on the tapes], as do our citizens."

Trump nominee for Deputy AG Jeffrey Rosen uncertain about Brown v. Board ruling

The remark came during Rosen’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, pressed Rosen on Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark ruling that found school segregation to be unconstitutional; and Roe v. Wade, the ruling that affirmed that abortion access is a constitutional right.
Could it be that Rosen probably approves of segregation in schools? I mean, for any rational being, it's without any doubt logical to overcome segregation, since there is no supportable ground to separate people by the colour of their skin.
“Senator, I don’t think that it would be a productive exercise for me to go through the most–thousands of Supreme Court opinions and say which ones are right and which ones are wrong,” he said.
Why don't you just say «Yes», man? This is no question to contemplate, it's a matter of course! For God's sake, racists... show more

White Nationalism hearing escalates as right-winged pundit Candace Owen's comments on Hitler were heard

Both sides of the aisle were eager to note just how forcefully, at least superficially, they condemned white nationalism. Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) opened the hearings by saying it was “sadly necessary to examine an urgent crisis in our country.” Ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA), meanwhile, claimed that House Republicans had “led the chamber’s unequivocal revocation of white nationalism.”

Some of those testifying did address glaring problems in the current approach to combating white nationalism. Eileen Hershenov of the Anti-Defamation League noted how fringe online communities like Gab and 8chan had created “24/7 white nationalist rallies.” Kristen Clarke of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law asked why the FBI had devoted resources to investigating Black Identity Extremists while allowing white supremacist movements to grow at an alarming rate.

Petition to ban Swedish Youtube star Pewdiepie didn't surprise him at all

Felix went to counter the allegations of instances in which he had been accused of propagating white supremacy. Some of them, according to the Felix, were fake and didn't happen at all, while the others he explained by saying that hey happened a long time ago.

The response comes after Maria Ruiz's petition, which called for putting a stop to normalizing white supremacy on the internet and referred to PewDiePie's channel as hotbed of fomenting white-supremacist ideas, gathered over 77,000 signatures.

This is not the first time that the Swedish content-creator has faced flak for racism and white-supremacist content. In 2017, US's Wall Street Journal uncovered nine videos and clips of the Swede in which he can allegedly be seen displaying anti-Semitic and racist content.

Last Friday, the #President visited #Calexico, #California, where he said, "We're #full, our system's full, our country's full -- can't come in! Our country is full, what can you do? We can't handle any more, our country is full. Can't come in, I'm sorry. It's very simple."

Behind the scenes, two sources told CNN, the President told border agents to not let migrants in. Tell them we don't have the capacity, he said. If #judges give you trouble, say, "Sorry, #judge, I can't do it. We don't have the room."

After the President left the room, agents sought further advice from their leaders, who told them they were not giving them that direction and if they did what the President said they would take on #personal #liability. You have to follow the #law, they were told.

Burger King accused of racism over chopstick ad

The issue at hand is the decision to reduce thousands of years of culinary tradition to a “joke” that’s more or less “LOL Chopsticks r funny!” — after all, would an ad showing people attempting to eat pho with a knife and fork get made? Probably not. Perhaps the dumbest part of the entire situation (besides the fact that it’s...not actually funny) is that Dolce and Gabbana drew similar outrage just a few months ago for an almost identical advertisement — which means somewhere out there is a marketing executive getting paid a massive salary despite being unable to use Google.
Does anyone have the link to their ad on Twitter? I couldn't find it yet.

Motel 6 to pay $12 mn in order to avoid lawsuit filed by state of Washington

The budget motel operator illegally shared the personal information of about 80,000 customers for more than two years, resulting in a "targeted" ICE investigation into guests with Latino-sounding names, the Washington state attorney general's office announced Thursday.

"Each time Motel 6 released a guest list, it included the private information of every guest at the hotel without their knowledge or consent, violating their expectation of privacy," Attorney General Bob Ferguson's office said in a statement. "The Motel 6 guest information disclosures led to significant harmful consequences, including the detention and deportation of many guests and the suffering of their families."

"ICE agents approached him in the hotel's parking lot, detained him and deported him some days later. His wife had to retrieve the presents and his other belongings from the Motel 6 after his arrest," the attorney general's office said. "The man was the sole provider for the h

Three predominantly black churches victimised by arsonists

Mount Pleasant is about 10 miles south of Greater Union Baptist Church, which burned down early Tuesday. St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre was destroyed in a fire early in the morning on March 26.

The fire consumed the inside of the rural church, burning holes through the roof, but leaving much of the brick exterior standing. At daybreak, smoke continued rising from the historic structure.

“My church has a lot of history,” he said. “I don’t understand it. What could make a person do that to a church?”
Either racism or reformative stances that fell to high dislike among a disappointed churchgoer. This question will be disclosed to the police who hopefully will soon solve the puzzle that is hereby given.

Racist lawyer spat into flight attendant's face after racist tirade

Judge Nicholas Wood, sentencing at Isleworth Crown Court in the UK, told Simone Burns: "The experience of a drunk and irrational person in the confines of an aircraft is frightening, not least on a long-haul flight and poses a potential risk to safety."
Why the hell did she have to be drunk and Irish? This is such a cliché. Of course not the fact that she was racist, this is rather unusual, but the fact that she was drunk, on a flight, and she even is a lawyer, a business that is required a tad more decency, at least to my understanding. God damn, there are things I wish I had never read in my life.
Burns (50), who is known as Simone O Broin, of First Avenue, Hove, sat quietly in the dock as she was sentenced to six months for being drunk on an aircraft and two months for assault.

AfD-Mitglied beschäftigt künftig IB-Vorsitzenden Daniel Fiß

Daniel Fiß' politische Wurzeln liegen in der Neonaziszene in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Er war zunächst Mitglied der Jungen Nationaldemokraten, der Nachwuchsorganisation der NPD, und lief auf rechtsextremen Demonstrationen mit. In den vergangenen fünf Jahren wurde er während seines Politikstudiums in Rostock zur Führungsfigur der Identitären Bewegung und stieg in deren Bundesvorstand auf.
Und jetzt ein Job bei einem AfD-Politiker, das kann sich wohl sehen lassen, für beide Seiten.
Seine herausgehobene Rolle bei den Identitären spiele für ihn keine Rolle, schrieb Droese: "Ich nehme vor der Einstellung keine Gesinnungsprüfung der Mitarbeiter vor."

19-year old dies for having knocked at the wrong door while being black

"He pleaded for his life. He was like, 'Hold on, I am sorry, I am sorry' and the dude shot him," a witness said.

"He has five kids, he was literally protecting his family. His truck was stolen earlier this week. Right now, that's all they're trying to do is protect their family," Makayla Johnson said.
You don't protect your family when you behave like a mad paranoid and shoot down innocents. He was not involved in his truck theft, he didn't do anything to him. He even cried that he was sorry, there was no need to shoot him down. But as it seems, gunning down others when feeling offended must be a usual action in the US, land of the free and of a party that thinks that more guns will create more safety. This is some fucked-up shit.

Is Israel moving towards the far right wing?

In fact, just last May, Israel passed a nation-state law, which ended once and for all, any supposed confusion about Israel's identity. The new law openly declared Israel as "the nation state of the Jewish people", completely disregarding the Palestinian people and marginalising their rights, culture, language and history.

Camus, himself, has expressed his admiration for Israel on a number of occasions. In December 2017, after Donald Drumpf moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, he tweeted: "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Israel is a model of resistance. We must make Europe a greater Israel".

"There is nothing wrong with preserving our own Judeo-Christian civilization. That is our duty […] Look at Israel, learn from Israel; Israel is an island in a sea of Islamic barbarism. Israel is a beacon of freedom and prosperity in a region of Islamic darkness. Israel refuses to be overrun by jihadists. So should we."

On the dropped felony charges against Jussie Smolett

Smollett was charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a hate crime. On Tuesday, prosecutors abandoned the case against Smollett in exchange for him forfeiting his $10,000 bond and doing a couple days of community service, though Smollett’s attorney has insisted there was no deal and no admission of guilt by Smollett.

“For people who do this work every day, who recognize what the charges are … we recognize that the likelihood that someone would get a prison sentence for a Class 4 felony is slim,” Foxx said in a conversation at WBEZ on Wednesday. “If you were able to isolate out what happens with other disorderly conduct cases when the defendant is not a celebrity, [I think that would give] greater clarity.”

That means since Foxx took over, about four times as many people charged with disorderly conduct have had their cases dropped than have been sentenced to prison time.
