This could be the start of something:

The consumer goods multinational Unilever is threatening to withdraw its advertising from online platforms such as Facebook and Google if they fail to protect children, promote hate or create division in society.

In a speech later today, Keith Weed, the Unilever chief marketing officer, will say that, as a brand-led business, Unilever “needs its consumers to have trust in our brands”.

Unilever is the world’s second largest marketing spender, after Procter & Gamble, and spent €7.7bn (£6.8bn) last year advertising its brands, which include PG Tips, Marmite, Dove and Persil.

G.O.P. Visions of Tectonic Realignment
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/11/o...alignment.html

Quote:
But while we are focusing on Trump and what he has wrought, it would behoove us to also focus on the titanic moves by the right to literally realign society for the long haul: stacking the courts with virulent conservatives, suppressing voter access, reducing the inflow of immigrants who might lean Democratic, gerrymandering districts, punishing states that lean Democratic in presidential elections and returning to a failed drug policy that disproportionately jails black and brown people.

In short, conservatives are using every possible means to permanently lock in power, wealth and influence for the existing, predominantly white and predominantly male power structure...

This is much bigger than Trump alone. This is the big game for all the marbles. Trump is simply a useful and temporary tool in this endeavor. This is why many of the most powerful conservatives in this country are betraying their supposed values, ignoring the moral conundrum and continuing to support Trump: He is a means to an end, a necessarily piece of the big picture. This is about a tectonic realignment.
Emphatic yep, yep and yep.

Assange's attempt to persuade the Senior District Judge that the arrest warrant issued when he jumped bail was invalid failed. So did his attempt to persuade her that it is not in the public interest to prosecute him for jumping bail.

Both judgments here: https://www.judiciary.gov.uk/judgmen...rant-ruling-2/

She really lets rip into his and his supporters' arguments in the second (public interest) judgment.

ICE attorney caught stealing immigrants' identities

Quote:
The top lawyer for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office in Seattle has been charged with trying to steal the identities of seven people who were in immigration proceedings.

The ICE chief counsel, Raphael A. Sanchez, was charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft, according to court documents filed on Monday in United States District Court for the Western District of Washington. He allegedly used the personal information “to obtain money and property by means of materially false and fraudulent pretenses” when their cases were under review by ICE, the charging document said.

His fraud attempts allegedly involved American Express, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Capital One, Citibank and Discover Financial Services. They began in October 2013 and continued through Oct. 25, 2017.

The Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section, which pursues efforts to combat corruption by public officials, is overseeing the case.

Everybody saw them; but remember that Nazis are Very Fine People and their point of view deserves to be heard and respected for the sake of fairness and balance, not suppressed by doing things like reporting their mass-shooting aspirations to law enforcement.

Also he likely hung out in a circle jerk of people who ass said "fuck yeah" to everything he said.

I also take note that he was taken alive while young black men are routinely shot down by police for things like telling them they hold a conceal carry permit.

CBS posted a video someone had taken inside a classroom. Very close to it you could hear the very loud (of course AR-15) gunshots, the screams and terror of the young people being targeted and murdered in the hallway outside of the classroom and the fear in the voices of the students inside the classroom. It was absolutely terrifying and made my blood curdle.

That video should be shoved in the face of every single politician who takes NRA money and refuses to do anything about the carnage that happens in this country. They should be forced to watch it. Then, they should be shown the door in November.

America is sick. Very sick. Nobody should have to live this way in fear in schools, churches, movie theatres and concerts all so that mostly white men can have power fantasies and go on rampages.

Pro-Gun Russian Bots Flood Twitter After Parkland Shooting - WIRED

Ex:

Quote:
Meanwhile, some accounts with large bot followings are already spreading misinformation about the shooter's ties to far-left group Antifa, even though the Associated Press reported that he was a member of a local white nationalist group. The Twitter account Education4Libs, which RoBhat Labs shows is one among the top accounts tweeted at by bots, is among the prominent disseminators of that idea:

Also, I feel like Twitter could kill its bot problem if it wanted to.

Its bots. There are obvious signs. Why the fuck doesn't twitter have bots to watch for these signs and kill them no questions asked.

They probably aren't even actual API based bots but some form script. Because regular API bots require some verification to use the API (I have made a few for fun).

So watch for bot like patterns, in accounts not registered as real bots, or something.

She's a right leaning, self-described "feminist" pundit. That's the short answer.

The slightly longer answer is, she's a right leaning anti-feminist pundit, who uses her self-appointed feminist credentials to attack actual feminists and feminist related discussion.

A few years back, she was awarded the title "Based Mom" by the gamergate crowd, when she waded into the fight on their side. The fact she ran to support them should tell you quite a bit about her beliefs and her opportunism. The fact they started calling her "mom" should tell you a lot about them.

Since Gamergate, it pretty much is.

At least the toxic crap from /pol/ spills over into the other boards enough to put it solidly into "distinction without a difference" territory.
