Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump exhibit relocates – again

shia labepouf

Someone needs to get this creature an acting gig. Or better yet, a cure for his Trump Derangement Syndrome.

From Page Six: Actor Shia LaBeouf is taking his controversial anti-President Trump art installation across the pond, claiming America isn’t “safe enough” for his work.

The “He Will Not Divide Us” webcam exhibit has been adopted by the Liverpool-based Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, the group said Tuesday.

“Events have shown that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist,” LaBeouf and the other artists wrote in a statement.

The project encourages people to say “He will not divide us!” into a wall-mounted camera that is livestreaming 24/7.

It was launched in Queens on Inauguration Day, and was supposed to run for the duration of Trump’s presidency. But the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria shut down the installation on Feb. 10, saying it became a “flashpoint of violence.” (Including LaBeouf being charged with misdemeanor assault and a harassment violation .)

So LaBeouf moved it to Albuquerque, where it was yanked a few days later because of vandalism and gunfire.

Hillary Clinton says she’s ready to help Americans find common ground

From AP: Hillary Clinton said Friday she’s “ready to come out of the woods” and help Americans find common ground.

Clinton’s gradual return to the public spotlight following her presidential election loss continued with a St. Patrick’s Day speech in her late father’s Pennsylvania hometown of Scranton.

“I’m like a lot of my friends right now, I have a hard time watching the news,” Clinton told an Irish women’s group.

But she urged a divided country to work together to solve problems, recalling how, as first lady, she met with female leaders working to bring peace to Northern Ireland. “I do not believe that we can let political divides harden into personal divides. And we can’t just ignore, or turn a cold shoulder to someone because they disagree with us politically,” she said.

Friday night’s speech was one of several she is to deliver in the coming months, including a May 26 commencement address at her alma mater, Wellesley College in Massachusetts. The Democrat also is working on a book of personal essays that will include some reflections on her loss to Donald Trump.

Clinton, who was spotted taking a walk in the woods around her hometown of Chappaqua, New York, two days after losing the election to Donald Trump, quipped she had wanted to stay in the woods, “but you can only do so much of that.”

She told the Society of Irish Women that it’ll be up to citizens, not a deeply polarized Washington, to bridge the political divide.

“I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this, to help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going,” said Clinton.

Clinton was received warmly in Scranton, where her grandfather worked in a lace mill. Her father left Scranton for Chicago in search of work during the Great Depression, but returned often. Hillary Clinton spent summers at the family’s cottage on nearby Lake Winola.

She fondly recalled watching movies stretched across a bedsheet in a neighbor’s yard, and told of how the cottage had a toilet but no shower or tub. “Don’t tell anybody this, but we’d go down to the lake,” she said.

Welcome to Sweden! – where men wear pink pussies

Long gone are the days of Viking warriors.

These days, Swedish men outdo effeminate American pajama-boys by putting pink pussies on their heads.

On March 7, 2017, to show their solidarity with International Women’s Day, the board of directors of Byggnads, a construction workers trade union in Stockholm, Sweden, tweeted a picture of themselves wearing pink pussy hats and lamented that “the construction industry is 99% men”.

Victor Smith reports for NewsNuke that in an opinion piece published by public broadcaster SVT, the men apologized for being white males:

“Today on International’s Women’s Day we want to pay attention to all you women in the construction industry and tell you how much you’re needed and the respect we have for you because you dare to break gender roles.

We know we’re going to have to endure some jibes, mainly from other men, because we are standing here in our pink, home-knitted hats. But to us it is an act of solidarity.

God knows we’re not perfect. We ARE a bunch of white middle-aged men. Sometimes we put our foot in our mouth. Often we hear it ourselves and apologize. Sometimes we don’t notice it ourselves; please tell us and give us a red card. So that we learn for next time.

We ARE a bunch of white, middle-aged men. But at least we’re wearing pink hats.”

Byggnads’ pussy-hat pic elicited an enthusiastic response from another male Swede named Henrik Brink @henrikbrink2:

“I love you! Thank you for doing something!”

But another male, TOMMY L. KY @liberalasiat, sensibly points out:

“How does this [men wearing pussy hats] affect equality and inequality in the construction industry at all?”

Mom Busted in Alleged Attack on Woman, 71, With Victim’s Own Cane for Saying Her Child Needs Manners

Breonna Turk: Not a candidate for Mother of the Year Award…

From Yahoo: Police in New York say they arrested a mother who flew into a rage when an elderly woman suggested she teach her child some manners, attacking the senior citizen with her own cane in a subway station.

Breonna Turk, 24, surrendered Wednesday after she allegedly attacked a 71-year-old woman at the Q train station at 86th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan two days earlier, police said.

The senior victim was waiting to enter an elevator when Turk and her young son, who were apparently also wanting to get on, pushed past a crowd getting out at about 2:10 p.m. Monday, a police source told InsideEdition.com.

“You should teach your child to wait till people come out of the elevator instead of trying to get in,” the septuagenarian said as they stepped onto the elevator, according to a police source.

Turk allegedly responded by attacking the elderly woman in full view of the little boy, cops said. She allegedly threw the victim off the elevator, punched her and then snatched the woman’s cane to continue the attack, the police source said. She then fled with the child in an unknown direction, authorities said.

The victim suffered a cut to her hand and was left with pain throughout her body, the source said.

Turk was charged with assault in the second degree. Cops said she lives in a high-rise building about two blocks away from where the incident occurred.

Friday Stupid: Woman sets her crotch on fire

TMZ reports, March 23, 2016, that a competitor in a Dancehall contest, who calls herself Fire Gyal Flexi, had planned to put rubbing alcohol on her crotch, which she would light and then immediately smother the flames.

But she accidentally put too much rubbing alcohol and became a human torch.

Flexi sustained first degree burns and lost layers of skin, but pressed on and won the dance competition, scoring a trophy and $500 prize. She proceeded to the international contest in Jamaica. No news as to whether she won that one.

According to Wikipedia, the Dancehall Queen tradition originated in Jamaican Dancehall parties in the ghettos, seeking the best local female dancer. Each Jamaican parish holds a local dancehall queen competition annually, the most popular being the Dancehall Queen competition in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
