For Alt-Right Trolls, “Star Trek: Discovery” Is an Unsafe Space

quote [ The show, which stars two women of color, won’t début until the fall, but already its trailer is raising nativist hackles. ]

Previous post about the trailer that has the alt-white so riled up.

John Oliver, a giant squirrel and a defamation lawsuit by a coal industry titan

quote [ Oliver knew he was inviting a legal battle when he used his show Sunday to lambaste one of the country’s largest coal mining companies and mock its chief executive. ]

The Slants Win Supreme Court Battle Over Band's Name In Trademark Dispute

quote [ The case could have broad impact on how the First Amendment is applied in other trademark cases. ]

Under the circumstances it seems like the best decision. On the other hand, looks like it means 'Redskins' is probably OK too.

FACT CHECK: Is Left-Wing Violence Rising?

quote [ those who track extremism say that while there are a few far-left groups that raise red flags, their numbers remain small. ]

Minnesota Police Officer Found Not Guilty In Shooting Death Of Philando Castile

quote [ The incident drew national attention when Reynolds started live-streaming the immediate aftermath of the exchange on Facebook, as Castile lay dying and her daughter sat in the back seat. ]

Sessions Asks Congress To Undo Medical Marijuana Protections

quote [ Last year, the then-U.S. senator from Alabama said, “good people don’t smoke marijuana.” He also repeatedly criticized the Obama administration’s approach of generally respecting the right of states to set their own cannabis policies. ]

This afternoon AG Sessions testifies over his involvement in the Russia scandal. This is just an unrelated reminder of what an evil little fuck he is.
