August Ames bullied by the “tolerant” left

Well, this is sad. Sad that August chose porn as her career and that the PC crowd shamed her. She was labeled “homophobic.” Those SJW bullies must be so proud.

From Fox News: A porn star relentlessly bullied on Twitter after saying she did not want to have sex with someone who had shot gay porn committed suicide by hanging.

August Ames, a 23-year-old rising star in the adult film industry, died Tuesday in California. The Ventura County Medical Examiner confirmed to The Blast that Ames died of asphyxiation due to hanging.

“She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me,” her husband, Kevin Moore, told industry trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN), which first reported the news. “Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”

According AVN, Ames joined the adult film industry in 2013 and steadily rose to prominence mostly thanks to a large following on social media.

Close friends told The Blast that they suspect her social media presence and recent harassment may have contributed to her death.

In recent days, Ames’ Twitter feed has been littered with cyberbullies accusing her of being homophobic after she publicly chose to not work with an unidentified actor who had previously shot gay porn.

“Whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXnews, you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know. BS is all I can say,” she wrote in a tweet earlier this month. “Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? I do my homework for my body.”

The tweet garnered an onslaught of responses toward Ames, forcing her to defend her decision – and her words – against the PC mob.

“NOT homophobic. Most girls don’t shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety,” she wrote. “That’s just how it is with me. I’m not putting my body at risk, I don’t know what they do in their private lives.”

In another tweet Ames wrote: “How am I homophobic if I myself am attracted to women? Not wanting to have sex with gay men is not homophonic; they don’t want to have sex with me either so byeeeee.”

“I don’t have anything to apologize for! Apologizing for taking extra steps to [ensure] that my body stays safe? F–k you guys for attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious. I f–king love the gay community! What the f–k ever! I CHOOSE who I have inside my body. No hate,” she wrote in another tweet.

After Ames’ death, fellow porn stars came to her defense and slammed the online mob bullying her.

“A beautiful life is GONE because people like to use their ‘fan base’ to bully others because THEIR opinion doesn’t agree with YOURS,” Brett Rossi, ex-girlfriend to actor Charlie Sheen wrote on Twitter. “RIP to a sweet, kind soul… I’m so sad & so angry. A life wasted simply because HER opinion didn’t mesh with YOURS.”

Anikka Albrite wrote: “Omg, I can’t believe she’s dead. You people should have known better than to berate her over her personal thoughts! Shame on all you for beating it into the ground. Online harassment is a real thing & it claimed another life. Someone who liked & would have even called a friend!”

College student bullied over a photo with Mike Pence

Remember, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From NY Post: A Scripps College student claims she’s being bullied for a photo that she posted of herself alongside Vice President Mike Pence — with some saying it “constitutes direct violence and oppression against marginalized groups.”

McKenzie Deutsch, an incoming junior at the private California women’s school, described the online harassment in a column for the Claremont Independent on Sunday.

“Shortly after posting the photo, I began receiving vicious comments and private messages accusing me of not caring about LGBTQ rights and attacking me for getting anywhere near the Vice-President,” she wrote. “Close friends and distant acquaintances alike lashed out in fury, subjecting me to lectures, rants, and name-calling — all while ignoring the photo’s plainly apolitical context.”

In the picture, Deutsch can be seen standing alongside Pence and Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers — whom she interned with this summer.

“A few weeks ago…I saw how personally my peers take politics upon sharing a photo of me standing with Vice-President Mike Pence and Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers,” Deutsch said. “Knowing my Facebook audience was politically diverse, I made no political comments. Instead, I shared my excitement and gratitude for the opportunity to intern for Rodgers — the highest ranking Republican woman in Congress — and to interact with such impactful and important people in my job. The photo should not have caused any trouble. But my Scripps College and Claremont peers begged to differ.”

Before sharing the image online, Deutsch said she had been worried about expressing her personal views “without being shunned” by her Scripps College classmates and professors alike. “So, I did not,” she said. “I kept my head down and did my best to avoid sparking controversy.”

Scripps has become infamous for its political correctness over the years, with several incidents occurring on campus.

In March 2016, a dean at the liberal arts school scolded students after one of their Mexican-American peers woke up to find “#trump2016” scrawled on a whiteboard that was hanging on her dorm room door.

“According to my peers, taking a photo with Vice-President Pence is anything but neutral,” Deutsch said. “In fact, it constitutes direct violence and oppression against marginalized groups.”

One of Deutsch’s biggest critics accused her of “ignoring the plights of marginalized people to achieve personal gain” — saying she was a person who “smiled with [their] oppressors.”

Another person chided her for standing next to someone who is “a threat to human rights everywhere.”

Others turned to mockery, inquiring: “Did you manage to ask him why he thinks women are second-class citizens?” and “How many LBGTQ folks do you need to help send to conversion therapy in exchange for reproductive rights from Pence?”

Then there were those who resorted to name-calling. “A classmate simply commented, ‘Bitch,’” Deutsch recalled. “Many others ‘liked’ these comments, endorsing this shameless harassment.”

In closing, Deutsch blasted her fellow students at Scripps — saying it’s important to engage with individuals “across the aisle.”

“How did we get to the point where taking a photo with someone is an act of violence?” she asks. “How will we ever be able to have adult conversations if no one is ever willing to listen to those who have opposing philosophies? How can we coexist when we write off our political opponents — as well as those who dare to take photos with them — as morally bankrupt?”

Deutsch added, “No one seems to remember what their teachers have taught them since Kindergarten: Be respectful of others. Apparently, when it comes to those with whom they disagree, many of my peers are only capable of disrespectful engagement…This is not as it should be. We need a genuine dialogue — now more than ever.”

Los Angeles targets contractors who might work on border wall

Council member Gil Cedillo believes Mexico, not three US states, is California’s “dearest” neighbor

Demorats: All for bullying when it fits their political agenda.

From Fox News: The city of Los Angeles wants to require contractors to reveal whether they have ever been involved with President Trump’s border wall construction.

City lawmakers say residents have a right to know whether companies are working on the controversial agenda.

The city council voted on Tuesday to require companies working with the city to say whether they had worked on building, design, or sold materials for “any proposed border wall between Mexico and the United States of America.”

“We want to know if there are people who do business with the city of Los Angeles … who wish to profit from building a wall that would divide us from our nearest and dearest neighbor Mexico,” said Councilman Gil Cedillo.

Tim Murphy, board president of CALBX, called the move “absurd” and said it sets a dangerous precedent for discrimination against companies.

“They’re moving beyond the political theater and hyperbole that this issue generates,” Murphy told “Fox & Friends.” “They are creating, in fact, a political blacklist, threatening any company that would express an interest, not actually build, but express an interest in working on the border wall.”

State Sen. Ricardo Lara wants to expand the move, preventing all of California from doing business with companies involved in the border wall.

Congressional Democrats, meanwhile, are threatening a government shutdown over border wall funding when the government must negotiate a new federal budget in October.
