Rob Reiner calls President Trump an ill sociopath after Florida school shooting

Remember folks, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From Fox News: Following the news of a Florida school shooting, Rob Reiner attacked “GOP patriots” and called for an end to Trump’s presidency. 

On Sunday, the famed Hollywood filmmaker took to Twitter to accuse the government of putting the president before the lives of children and the country.

The Hollywood writer and director tweeted, “How much longer do we have to put up with a mentally ill sociopath? When the f—ed up psyche of the leader of the free world comes before the horrific deaths of innocent children, it’s time for GOP patriots to stand up and end this sickness.”

The filmmaker, who is a frequent critic of Trump, also called out the president over reports of Russian interference with the 2016 election.

“There was a time when the GOP was the party of national security. When Trump refuses to acknowledge Russia’s attack on US, he refuses to protect US from without. When he refuses to support sensible gun safety, he refuses to protect US from within,” Reiner tweeted on the evening of Valentine’s Day following the mass shooting.

That Friday, the filmmaker continued to slam the president.

“There are 21,000,000 reasons why Donald Trump refuses to protect our children from being slaughtered by guns. The NRA has deep pockets. But we will show them that our hearts and our pockets are deeper than theirs,” Reiner wrote.

The “Princess Bride” director joins the chorus of celebrities who have called for government action after the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Back in December, while accepting a social justice award at the African American Film Critics Association Awards, Reiner called the Trump presidency “the last battle of the Civil War.”

Libtard Jennifer Lawrence taking a year off from acting to focus on “activism” for a “nonpartisan” organization

jennifer lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence: I’m really now concerned about “nonpartisan stuff”

And by “activism,” I’m sure she means pushing for progressives, as based upon her past comments:

From Yahoo (via Cosmopolitan): Jennifer Lawrence is making a big change – over the next year, the multi award-winning actress won’t be working on any new movies. Instead, Lawrence plans to focus on activism, and encouraging young people to become more engaged with politics.

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, while promoting her latest movie Red Sparrow, Lawrence said, “I’m going to take the next year off. I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.Us… trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”

As for the focus of her work, Lawrence elaborated, “It’s just anti-corruption, and stuff trying to pass state by state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”

In January, Lawrence paid a visit to Ohio’s Cleveland Heights High School to discuss corruption in politics, on behalf of Represent.Us. Of Lawrence’s visit, one student told E! News, “It makes a big difference when people who are just 10 years older than us come to talk about political issues. When she said, ‘This is your time,’ that really made me think.”

As well as meeting with students, Lawrence was active in the Women’s March last month, and posted on Facebook her support for women’s rights, equal pay, DACA, and CHIP: “I stand in solidarity for Women’s rightsEqual payDACACHIP. Posted by Jennifer Lawrence on Saturday, January 20, 2018.”

FYI: Jennifer Lawrence is a board member of Represent.Us.

According to Wikipedia, Represent.Us is “a nonpartisan, non-profit organization founded in November, 2012 whose stated mission is “to pass tough anti-corruption laws in cities and states across America, and end the legalized corruption that has come to define modern politics.

Represent.Us places a heavy emphasis on grassroots organizing, employing a staff of organizers to help manage a national network of volunteers and volunteer-led chapters. The organization also relies on a large social media following through platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Reddit to draw attention to its public education and advocacy campaigns.

Represent.Us is a nonpartisan organization with a board, staff, and membership composed of liberals, conservatives, and independents. The organization does not endorse or oppose political candidates in an effort to maintain a nonpartisan stance.

The founder of Represent.Us is Josh Silver, a graduate of The Evergreen State College and former CEO and president of Free Press.

Major donors to Represent.Us include the following (see full list here):

Represent.Us is “nonpartisan?” Yeah, riiiiiiiight.

If you think Facebook is bad, here’s Nextdoor!

FOTM‘s DCG once had a Facebook account.

Some years ago, DCG deleted the account after receiving death threats from a reader.

Yesterday, DCG wrote this comment on the “Florida Valentine’s Day school shooting” thread:

“I deleted my FB and twitter accounts years ago yet today received notices from ‘friends’ wishing me happy birthday based upon my false birthday. It’s not my BD.

Profiles are only erased when they, whomever ‘they’ are, deem so. And it’s happened every year since I closed my accounts.

Data privacy no longer exists.”

If you think Facebook is bad, there’s a new social-networking service called Nextdoor, which is Facebook on steroids.

Nextdoor

As described in Wikipedia, Nextdoor is a supposedly private, social networking service for neighborhoods, which allows users to connect with people who live in their and nearby neighborhoods.

Nextdoor was founded in 2011 in San Francisco by Sarah Leary, Nirav Tolia, Prakash Janakiraman and David Wiesen. In 2012, Nextdoor raised $18.6M in venture capital funding. Beginning in 2016, Nextdoor expanded to the Netherlands, and is now available also in the UK and Germany.

This is how Nextdoor works:

  1. To acquire an account, you must register with Nextdoor by giving your real name and home address.
  2. Nextdoor requires you to verify your identity with a credit card or by confirming a code mailed or phoned to you.
  3. After you’re registered, Nextdoor provides you with a list of your neighbors who have also registered.
  4. Nextdoor also enables you to (a) see which nearby residents are registered on the site, including their names and other information; and (b) send postcards advertising Nextdoor to non-registered neighbors.

Nirav Tolia

In June 2014, Nextdoor co-founder Nirav Tolia pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor, after being charged with felony hit-and-run for fleeing a crash that left a woman injured on Highway 101 in Brisbane, California. Tolia was sentenced to 30 days in county jail and a fine of $239.

Joseph Brent, the victim’s attorney, observed that “It’s ironic that the CEO of a company that is holding itself out as trying to promote neighborliness, crime watch and things like that flees the scene of an accident that he caused and doesn’t bother to call 911 or stay around to exchange information or see if he caused any injuries.”

UPDATE:

Two hours after this post was published, a reader posted this comment on FOTM‘s Facebook page:

Nextdoor is worse – I had to quit as it was too scary. The liberal mindset was triggering ptsd – amazing what is in your neighborhood. Now I lock my doors 24/7.

The “Soy Boy” effect: US Army General says new recruits not strong enough to throw grenades

soy boy

From Daily Mail: The United States Army will no longer require recruits to show they can throw hand grenades 25 meters because many of them can’t throw the explosive far enough, it revealed on Friday.

The Army says that starting next summer it will remove the requirement from its Basic Combat Training because it takes too much time to teach enlistees to throw grenades at an adequate distance. The new policy was reported by Military.com.

‘What we have found is it is taking far, far too much time,’ said Maj. Gen. Malcolm Frost, the commanding general of the US Army Center of Initial Military Training. ‘It’s taking three to four times as much time … just to qualify folks on the hand grenade course than we had designated so what is happening is it is taking away from other aspects of training.’

‘We are finding that there are a large number of trainees that come in that quite frankly just physically don’t have the capacity to throw a hand grenade 20 to 25 to 30 meters,’ he said. ‘In 10 weeks, we are on a 48-hour period; you are just not going to be able to teach someone how to throw if they haven’t thrown growing up.’

Recruits will also no longer be required to successfully pass the land navigation course in order to graduate.

But the Army says that enlistees will still receive the same amount of training in hand grenade proficiency and land navigation, which will be incorporated into existing training regimens.

‘Just because we took it off as a graduation requirement does not mean they won’t be conducting hand grenade or land navigation training,’ Frost said. ‘They are going to learn all the technical aspects of the hand grenade, and they are going to learn tactical employment and they will throw a live hand grenade.

‘With land navigation, it’s the same thing they are still going to conduct land navigation training; they are still going to conduct the day course they are still going to conduct the night course.’

Many who are critical of the army’s recent attempts to recruit women jumped on the news to blame increased diversity in the army for the drop in physical demands. 

On Facebook, John Clayton wrote: ‘Army to lower hand grenade requirements because women do not have the strength to throw it far enough to meet existing requirements to graduate SMH.’

‘One of my female soldiers couldn’t throw a grenade so she couldn’t deploy,’ wrote Anthony Anderson. ‘This generation is just weak and lazy, and think they deserve everything.’ 

‘When you turn your military into a social experiment, you get these kind of results,’ wrote Zac Booterbaugh.

Others on Facebook say that women and men among the younger generation are spending too much time indoors.

‘I cannot believe it,’ wrote Harry Davis. ‘The people going to basic training are not strong enough to pass the grenade portion of qualification to graduate so they just remove the requirement. Get off the couch for crips sakes. Put down the game controller and get outside and play. What a sad situation.’

One Facebook user wrote: ‘So…because young “men” who join the Army are so weak, they can’t throw a hand grenade, the Army is doing away with it? When I first enlisted, I probably could not throw a grenade 30 meters (I guess), but it did not take too long of ridiculous amount [of] push ups and [physical training] to take care of that. By the time it was time to qualify, it was no problem. I just do not understand the military any more.’

Radical Left’s murderous minds on full display after Florida Valentine’s Day school shooting

The Left like to flatter their narcissistic selves as tolerant and open-minded. But history shows them to be anything but that.

The 20th century is the bloodiest century in human history, thanks to the killing fields of Marxist-Leninist regimes like the USSR, the People’s Republic of China, and the short-lived Khmer Rouge reign in Cambodia. Altogether, the radical left exacted a doleful human toll of 85 to 100 million people who perished from misguided economic experiments and the deliberate abuse and murder by the state. [Source]

The killing fields of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia

More recently, former FBI agent Larry Grathwohl revealed the murderous mind of the Weather Underground (WU) — a radical left group that originated in 1969 as a faction of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS).

Obama’s Chicago pals, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn, were founders of the Weather Underground, the goal of which was a violent overthrow of the U.S. government and the instauration of a “dictatorship of the proletariat.” WU instigated a series of terrorist bombings in the 1970s. Ayers and Dohrn were complicit in the conspiracy to bomb the office of California State Senator John Briggs. The two turned themselves in December 1980. Charges were dropped for Ayers; Dohrn received three years probation and a $15,000 fine. Both dispute their being labeled “terrorists” and remain unrepentant to this day.

Grathwohl went undercover and infiltrated the Weather Underground. In the video below, Grathwohl described how members of the Weather Underground calmly spoke of their plans to kill 25 million (their estimate) Americans who they expected would resist reeducation after the WU seized political power.

In the aftermath of the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the American Left once again reveal their murderous intentions:

(1) Israeli newspaper columnist Becky Griffin @dorothyofisrael made Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz a poster child for abortion. Griffin wrote in a tweet (LifeNews):

Becky Griffin tweet

(2) A far-left group on Facebook, who call themselves Milkshakes Against the Republican Party (MARP), call on people to murder Republican lawmakers who support the NRA as revenge for the Florida school shooting. (InfoWars)

One of the posts, referring to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) at a Congressional baseball practice game on June 14, 2017, says:

“Dear Crazed Shooters, The GOP has frequent baseball practice. You really wanna be remembered, that’s how you do it. Signed, Americans tired of our politicians bathing in the blood of the innocent for a few million dollars from the terrorist organization NRA.”

 

Milkshakes Against the Republican Party threat

Another MARP Facebook post reads:

“You remember the shooting at the Republican baseball game? One of those should happen EVERY WEEK until those NRA-funded sons of bitches do something about this.”

Other Leftists on Twitter heaped vitriol on a dad, Andrew Pollack, who had lost his daughter in the Parkland school shooting simply because Pollack wore a “Trump 2020” t-shirt:

“He’s Pro-Trump which means he supports the guy who is responsible for the death of his child!”

“I don’t feel sorry for him and fuck trump.”

“Maybe should have thought twice before voting for #TerroristTrump”

Girl fight for the lady pond: Feminists protest over decision to let transgender women use ladies-only pool

popcorn-time-gif

From Daily Mail: A group of feminists have urged a ban on self-identifying trans women from using a female-only pond on Hampstead Heath in London.

Members of the Mayday 4 Women group picketed a meeting of the Kenwood Ladies’ Pond Association who held a closed meeting to discuss the situation. It is understood, 100 of the 400 members of the KLPA met after concerns were raised about self-identifying trans women from using the female-only facility.

One insider told The Guardian: ‘It’s an important issue. There are different views about trans women using the pond and some of us are concerned about the fact that it has always been the only all-women swimming place in Britain.

Famous names such as Helena Bonham Carter, comedian Rhona Cameron and author Esther Freud are regular users of the pond.

The City of London Corporation who are responsible for the facility said self-identifying trans women were now welcome to use the pond and the female changing rooms. 

In a statement, the Corporation said: ‘Over the last year all lifeguards and managers at Hampstead Heath ponds have taken transgender awareness training courses, which have been offered to, and taken by, the ponds’ swimming associations as well. We are working with the LGBTQ community to ensure our facilities are fit to serve the needs of everyone who enjoys them, and will continue to do so in the future.’

But Mayday 4 Women have been campaigning against the change and have produced flyers to ‘keep the Hampstead Heath ladies’ pond a sanctuary for women’. 

According to the group: ‘Males already have access to two ponds: the men’s pond and the mixed pond. Why should they have access to three ponds when they already have access to two?’

KLPA told The Guardian: ‘Although it is tempting to assume someone’s gender simply by their appearance, it’s important to try to avoid doing so and to be aware of the needs of genuinely transgender women.’

In December, feminist writer Julie Bindell who has swam at the pond for more than 30 years told the Mail on Sunday: ‘It is totally unacceptable to allow men who identify as women, but who are otherwise male bodied and socialised as men, to be in a women-only space. I have seen mothers bring their young daughters who are self-conscious about their bodies but want to feel good about swimming and exposing their skin to the sun. The last thing they want is to look behind them and see a male-bodied person pretending to be a woman in order to gawp at them.’

New York fashion show features a 10-year-old boy who promotes “kinderdrag”

desmondisamazing

@desmondisamazing Instagram photo

First feminism, Satanism and the #MeToo movement inspired voodoo at a New York fashion show. Now a fashion house is using a very young and “unapologetic” gay child to promote “kinderdrag.”

The kinderdrag model Desmond Napoles is from New York City. I told you about this boy in July 2015 when his mom allowed him to walk in the New York City Pride March. From my blog post:

“There was plenty to marvel at during the New York City Pride March on Sunday, but one precocious 8-year-old boy stood out from the crowd: Desmond Napoles, of Brooklyn, who joyously strutted and vogued his way down Fifth Avenue in a rainbow tutu and gold sequined cap. And when critics reared their heads on social media Monday, suggesting his participation was inappropriate, mom Wendylou Napoles shut them down with grace and pride.

“If you are offended, don’t look,” Napoles wrote, in part, in a lengthy post on the Facebook page of LGBT website NewNowNext.

“He is old enough and smart enough to know he would be marching in the Pride parade in front of thousands of people and did it willingly,” she wrote.

Napoles tells Yahoo Parenting that she and her husband Andrew have been taking Desmond to watch the Pride March since he was 6 years old.

“He loved to see the drag queens and the colorful costumes,” she says, admitting that she did have initial moments of discomfort, but got over them quickly. “I believe my son will be better off and more successful in the long-term being exposed to all of the diversity at Pride. He needs to know that there is more to life than what he experiences at home, at school, and in our neighborhood.”

According to Desmond’s bio, he “came out of the closet when he was born”.

Now Desmond is taking his gayness to New York Fashion Week to promote his status as a “drag kid, dragutante, dragketeer, and draganista.”

He participated in the Gypsy’s Sports Fall 2018 show, wearing an oversize black blazer with Elizabethan ruffles around the neckline. See the photos at Cosmopolitan.

RuPaul has also given Desmond his stamp of approval, telling Desmond at DragCon 2017 in New York City that he was the “future of America.”

Here’s a thought: If the “future of America” is gay, then how will people be created?
