To Ann Coulter, scam artist, ‘free speech’ = make a buck off the rubes

Am I missing something here?

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said Wednesday that her planned speech at the University of California at Berkeley this week was canceled amid mounting concerns about potentially violent protests.

Coulter said in an email that the Young America’s Foundation canceled her appearance scheduled for Thursday, ordering her not to go to the Berkeley campus. The university realized that the group “wasn’t serious and dropped ongoing negotiations over a room,” she wrote. “Everyone who should be for free speech has turned tail and run.”

The university sent a message to the campus community Wednesday in the midst of uncertainty over whether, or when, Coulter might come to campus. After the university originally canceled her speech for Thursday and instead invited her to speak there next week, Coulter had vowed to speak anyway; with the university not offering a venue, campus Republican groups had been discussing her possibly appearing on a public plaza, where security would have been challenging.

I think Coulter is a troll and her followers are brainless meat puppets who love having her vomit into their head cavities. (Big reveal: There’s nothing Coulter can say that I would want to hear.)

But the baby fascists told mama Nazi not to show up because the mean liberals wouldn’t provide a venue, that Coulter and her minions were going to trash?

Really?

She doesn’t need the university to give her a room. If her free speech rights are so important to her, why doesn’t she just hop on a bus, walk to the middle of the campus, rear up on her hind quarters and spew? Is she under physical restraint? Did someone chain her to her dungeon?

Is she afraid to show up?

Because people who believe in free speech, and not out to make a cheap buck off of drooling pump trumpets and rushbots, will go into a dangerous environment and put their lives on the line.

Here’s how it’s done:

So, Ann, I dare you to go to Berkeley, I double dare you, you cheap grifter.

The appeal of conspiracy theories

And while we’re on the subject of conspiracy theories (via Jezebel):

Chobani—the Greek yogurt manufacturer owned by Hamdi Ulukaya—has filed a defamation lawsuit against right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his inflammatory website InfoWars, claiming that Jones’s network (which includes a blog and YouTube channel) falsely connected the Chobani factory, which is based in Twin Falls, Idaho and makes a practice out of hiring refugees, to the sexual assault of a five-year-old girl.

The company says that Jones has repeatedly ignored requests to remove slanderous statements, which include blaming a child’s sexual assault on Chobani’s refugee employees and claiming that she was raped at knifepoint by a group of Syrian men. (A child was in fact sexually assaulted, though not raped by the legal definition, by two minors from Iraq and Sudan. The perpetrators were not refugees employed by Chobani.) InfoWars also asserted that Chobani employees were responsible for a “500 percent increase in tuberculosis in Twin Falls,” a claim with no merit.

Meanwhile, I believe Rupert Murdoch drinks the blood of virgins to stay alive. Makes as much sense as deadly yogurt companies.

Castaways are jerks (the Hookerpiss edition)

He really can get people to talk about anything. And if you want the full Monty of delusion, you can either look at this:

Or click here, and read this. It’s a doozy! (One highlight: Did you know the orange menace gave the greatest speech ever delivered on the floor of the House of Representatives?)

(An aide talks about the president’s address to Congress.)

TRUMP: A lot of the people have said that, some people said it was the single best speech ever made in that chamber.

In Lugenorange land, Daniel Webster ain’t shit!

The Justice Department’s letter: What’s this really about?

On Friday, the Justice Department issued this release involving letters it sent to nine jurisdictions involving their sanctuary laws:

Today, the Department of Justice sent the attached letters to nine jurisdictions which were identified in a May 2016 report by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General as having laws that potentially violate 8 U.S.C. § 1373.

Additionally, many of these jurisdictions are also crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime. The number of murders in Chicago has skyrocketed, rising more than 50 percent from the 2015 levels. New York City continues to see gang murder after gang murder, the predictable consequence of the city’s “soft on crime” stance. And just several weeks ago in California’s Bay Area, after a raid captured 11 MS-13 members on charges including murder, extortion and drug trafficking, city officials seemed more concerned with reassuring illegal immigrants that the raid was unrelated to immigration than with warning other MS-13 members that they were next.

The letters remind the recipient jurisdictions that, as a condition for receiving certain financial year 2016 funding from the Department of Justice, each of these jurisdictions agreed to provide documentation and an opinion from legal counsel validating that they are in compliance with Section 1373. The Department of Justice expects each of these jurisdictions to comply with this grant condition and to submit all documentation to the Office of Justice Programs by June 30, 2017, the deadline imposed by the grant agreement.

This specifically names three cities. And the reference to one of them is a complete lie. New York isn’t soft on crime and does not have a high murder rate. Paul Krugman provides the following chart:

And the New York Police Department issued the following statement:

So what are we really talking about here?

The cities singled out are Chicago, New York and San Francisco.

Now what do those cities mean to right wing bigots.

Chicago, when you translate from bigot, means Barack Obama, which means blacks.

New York, when you translate from bigot, means Jews.

San Francisco, when you translate from bigot, means gays.

Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is a bigot. That’s why the midget digited orange troll appointed him to the post.

We’re not stupid. We’ve heard this dog whistle from Republicans ever since Richard Nixon. It’s the tool they use to get the pump truppet, Tea Party, gun fellating inbreds to drool and piss themselves.

Don’t let Hookerpiss and his cronies get away with it.

To everyone who’s ever told me that Alex Jones speaks the truth

You know who you are. From the Austin-American Statesman:

At a recent pretrial hearing, attorney Randall Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in “Batman.”

“He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said of Jones. “He is a performance artist.”

But in emotional testimony at the hearing, Kelly Jones, who is seeking to gain sole or joint custody of her three children with Alex Jones, portrayed the volcanic public figure as the real Alex Jones.

Three things:

  1. Alex Jones is an unstable volcanic public figure.
  2. Alex Jones is a performance artist. It’s all for show.
  3. The Joker made more sense than Alex Jones.

Here’s Alex Jones:

Here’s the Joker:

Tell me. Who makes more sense? (And yes, Heath Ledger is the only Joker who counts.)

The most important difference: The pump truppets put a guy in the White House who believes what Alex Jones says.
