More Libtard Butthurt: Multiple days of anti-Trump protests planned in Seattle

butthurt

The TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) is going to blow the BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) off the charts.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seattle voters did not come out in favor of President-elect Donald Trump during the last election. Protests erupted in the city after he defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton. Now that Trump is slated to take over the Oval Office on Jan. 20, people in Seattle plan to continue their opposition with a series of anti-Trump protests and events.

There are three major events planned and targeted at President-elect Trump.

Brothers and Sisters,

We don’t have a moment to waste in getting organized against Trump’s racist, misogynistic, anti-immigrant, anti-muslim, anti-lgbtq rhetoric, proposals, and cabinet members.

Join the Resist Trump Coalition and my office at City Hall to help build the biggest possible protests against Trump on January 20th and 21st.

Detailed information about the agenda for this meeting will be provided asap.

Solidarity! Kshama

The event specifically cites opposition to building a wall on the Mexican border, stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline, ending rape culture, and supporting Black Lives Matter. The Facebook event page reads:

The Democratic Party has proven they are incapable of stopping Trump. It is time to build a new party for the 99% based on the united power of all exploited and oppressed people, on movements for social and economic justice, on the belief that we CAN do better than this corrupt and rotten system!

#ResistTrump !! #OccupyInauguration !!

  • Jan. 21: The day after the inauguration, the “Women’s March on Seattle” is planned between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. for downtown Seattle. A route for the march has yet to be released, but the Facebook event page states it will be announced once approved by city officials. The women’s march is organized be four private citizens. As of Tuesday morning, the event has 29,000 people signed on for the Seattle march, with 41,000 more people interested in attending.

The event announcement reads:

In solidarity with the march taking place in Washington, DC, we will march in Seattle. ALL women, femme, trans, gender non-conforming, and feminist people (including men and boys) are invited to march. We are showing our support for the community members who have been marginalized by the recent election.

The Seattle women’s march is meant to coincide with the larger, national march on Washington D.C. that same day.

Business owner to CNN, liberals and Springsteen: ‘We’ve had it with you idiots’

lake-oswego-sign

From Fox News: A small business owner in Oregon has a message for CNN, ignorant liberals and Bruce Springsteen: “We’ve had it with you idiots.”

Kevin Kerwin is the proprietor of Kevin the Geek Computer Repair store in Lake Oswego. He’s also one of the few conservatives around town. “Oregon is a very beautiful state, but it’s infested with liberals,” Kevin tells me.

Kevin was especially bothered by the militant liberals who tried to burn down Portland following the 2016 presidential election. And it did not help matters when Bruce Springsteen, one of his favorite singers, raged against Trump’s supporters and suggested the president-elect appealed to un-American tendencies.

“When you let that genie out of the bottle – bigotry, racism, intolerance – they don’t go back into the bottle that easily, if they go back in at all,” Springsteen said on the “WTF” podcast. “Whether it’s a rise in hate crimes, people feeling they have license to speak and behave in ways that previously were considered un-American and are un-American. That’s what he’s appealing to.”

Just hearing him say that kind of stuff makes me mad, Kevin said.

But when four black suspects kidnapped and tortured a mentally challenged white man and pummeled him on Facebook Live – well – Kevin decided enough was enough. “When that kidnapping happened – that was one of the last straws,” he said.

So Kevin posted a giant sign on the front of his computer repair shop – and it’s pretty epic, folks.

To all the ignorant liberals including Bruce Springsteen…The 4 people who kidnapped & tortured a disabled teenager just because he supports Donald Trump – Just shows everyone you are a party of complete morons. I’m embarrassed to call you Americans. Go straight to Hell where you belong. We’ve had it with you idiots.”

For the record, there’s no clear evidence the young man who was tortured was actually a Trump supporter. However, it’s clear the victim’s attackers were displeased with not only Trump but white people, too.

Oh, he also had a message for CNN, calling them “Comedy News Network, Fake News all the Time, Propaganda for Liberals.”

It’s not the first time Kevin has posted a message on the front of his store – and it’s not the first time he’s posted his true feelings regarding liberals. “They’ve all boycotted my store, (but) I don’t care what they think,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of great conservatives here and they support my shop.”

Singer Jennifer Hudson hit with abuse from trolls telling her to ‘kill herself’ after appearing in music video campaign for Shell

From Daily Mail: Jennifer Hudson has faced abuse from cruel trolls after appearing in a music video campaign for Shell.  The singer, 35, performs a song called Best Day Of My Life alongside Pixie Lott and four other musicians, in order to promote the brand’s support of clean energy.

However the Daily Star reports that the new judge of The Voice UK has been attacked by environmentalists for participating in the Make The Future campaign – with one particularly abusive user even telling her to kill herself.

Jennifer and her co-stars are seen singing against demonstrations of six different green energy resources from across the globe, to highlight the worldwide support of less damaging fuel sources for the campaign. Yet the video, which has been watched more than 100 million times on Shell’s Facebook page, has received huge backlash – with the Dreamgirls star particularly being targeted for working with the ‘evil’ oil firm.

One user however, whose name and photo have not been verified, made a string of highly abusive posts on the video, which called for Jennifer to put ‘a rope round her neck’ and ‘jump’.

He continued in another comment: ‘Jennifer Hudson how’s about you innovate some white phosphorus all over your body and roll around until your skin melts off your bones.’ He also deemed her the ‘scum of the earth’ and suggested she ‘eat a broken glass sandwich and put it on Instagram.’

Other users admitted their disappointment in the singer – with one criticising her for supporting a company ‘who loves f****** up the sealife/wildlife/planet’ in exchange for a fee. Another added that she had ‘signed a deal with the devil’ and had ‘wasted her talent by selling out’.

MailOnline has contacted representatives of Jennifer Hudson for comment.

Meanwhile endless other users criticised Shell themselves, for spending money on the project rather than the global task at hand.

Additional critics slammed Shell for focusing on ‘celebrities’ rather than ‘science’ – with Jennifer and Pixie joined in the video by Steve Aoki, Brazilian singer Luan Santana, Steve Aoki, China’s Tan WeiWei and Yemi Alade.

Four animals charged in beating of white man on Facebook Live

brittany-covingtonThis crime is so horrendous.  I cannot fathom what is wrong with people. Just absolutely sick and evil people motivated by their hatred of white people and Donald Trump.

I have chosen not to post a picture of the victim (you can easily Google it). I have however, posted a picture of one of the animals, Brittany Covington (above), who has a prior record.

From MyFoxChicago: Four people face felony criminal charges including hate crimes and kidnapping in the brutal beating and torturing of a mentally disabled man that was broadcasted on live on Facebook.

Jordan Hill,18, of Carpentersville; Tesfaye Cooper, 18, of Chicago; Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago; and Tanishia Covington, 24, of Chicago; face felony criminal charges of aggravated kidnapping, hate crime; aggravated unlawful restraint; aggravated battery deadly weapon; robbery; PSMV and residential burglary.

Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. The footage shows the suspects kicking, hitting and cutting the hair of the victim while he was gagged. Shouts of “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!” can be heard in the background.

At one point, the victim is held at knife point and told to curse President-elect Donald Trump. The group also forces the victim to drink water from a toilet.

The victim was held hostage for at least 24 hours and as long as 48 hours. Police believe the kidnapping took place in an apartment in the 3400 block of West Lexington on the West Side.

CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi called the footage “reprehensible.”

Check with MyFoxChicago as they report, “This story is developing.”

Bernie Sanders supporter boasts on Facebook about refusing to help stranded motorist because she had a Trump bumper sticker

The party of “No H8TE.”

troy-brown2

From Daily Mail: A motorist boasted that he had refused to help a woman whose car was stuck in the snow after he spotted her Trump bumper sticker.

Troy Brown took a picture of a stranded vehicle in the snow and posted it on Facebook with the caption: ‘I was going to help her but she has a #Trump sticker on her car #CallYoPresident’. He also posted a video of himself purportedly driving on by.

The post, which has been liked and shared more than 4,000 times, sparked major debate among the hundreds of comments.

Many attacked Brown for leaving the woman stranded in the snow based solely on her political stance. Others defended Brown, saying they would have done the same.

troy-brown

Brown, who posts extensively about political issues, doubled down on his decision, adding ‘a list of people Trump voters can call for help:1. Yo president 2. Exxon Mobil CEO 3. General Flynn’s son 4. The gunman at Comet pizza in D.C.’

The motorist wrote that he does not support ‘Trump supporters, rapists, trafficking, or murderers. ‘I believe in peace and harmony. Trump didn’t display that.’

Brown revealed that he had been a Bernie Sanders supporter before Donald Trump won the election.

He had posted the picture of the stranded motorist on December 13 – when Ohio was suffering heavy snowstorms and freezing temperatures hitting as low as 13 degrees.

North Kitsap school district blasts teacher’s Facebook comments

First Amendment applies here. Yet we also have the same right to offer opinions of those who disparage the men and women who put their lives on the line for the public. They would be the ones rushing to any school if a deranged shooter was present.

Fallen Officer Jake Gutierrez

Fallen Officer Jake Gutierrez

From Kitsap Sun: A Kingston High School teacher’s Facebook comments on a thread about a fallen police officer have been denounced by North Kitsap School District.

Kim Smith weighed in on a Dec. 9 post by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office honoring Tacoma Officer Reginald “Jake” Gutierrez, who was fatally shot Nov. 30 while responding to a domestic dispute. A video on the post showed a long line of law enforcement vehicles ready for a procession before the memorial for Gutierrez, who was a Kitsap County resident.

“I hate this stupid display of the police,” Smith wrote. “If we’re going to do this for cops, we should do it for those they murder. It’s obscene.”

Smith’s comment unleashed a backlash of livid responses. Although Smith did not initially identify herself as a teacher, others did. “This was the wrong time and place … to post such disrespect for those who might save your life someday … as a teacher? Shame on you,” wrote one commenter.

“How do you sleep at night? This is a heartbreaking comment,” wrote another commenter. “How would you feel if someone said something like this after Sandy Hook?” Others piled on to shame Smith, some calling for her dismissal.

Superintendent Patty Page

Superintendent Patty Page

On Thursday, Superintendent Patty Page posted a statement distancing the district from Smith —without naming her  — and from the rampant, two-way vitriol that persisted through the week. “On behalf of the North Kitsap School District, please be advised that the district strongly disagrees with and condemns the personal comments posted by a district teacher regarding the tragic death of Tacoma Police Officer Jake Gutierrez,” Page said. “The district has not authorized, approved or encouraged the teacher’s comments.”

Page said North Kitsap had received complaints and is reviewing them under the school board’s policy on “complaints concerning staff or programs.” The policy cites state law outlining a teacher’s right to due process and appeal before any “adverse change in contract status.” Page would not say what actions if any the district is considering. “At this point I am not commenting on action, as I am considering it a personal matter,” Page said. “I believe my post reflects my position.”

School districts don’t typically jump into the fray on social media, even when they are directly or indirectly the subject of discussion. Page said North Kitsap has had social media issues in the past, but every situation is different. She acknowledged this situation is a first. “We have not publicly weighed in as a district other than to correct misinformation in the past,” Page said.

Teachers union president Mike McCorkle said he met with Smith Friday morning to discuss the issue. McCorkle said there is nothing in the contract that speaks to statements or public positions teachers take outside the classroom. “We want to protect our teachers’ due process to have a private life and have private opinions,” he said.

McCorkle had no comment on the district’s statement but said he understood its position. “We want a balanced approach, and we can understand why the district has to do it’s due diligence in looking into the matter,” McCorkle said.

Some commenters expressed concern that Smith would present a one-sided viewpoint in the classroom. The contract does speak to “academic freedom” within which teachers are called on to present a “balanced point of view,” McCorkle said.

McCorkle said Smith teaches a class on “ancient civilizations” and he understood from her “this is not something she would talk about in her classroom.”

Sheriff Gary Simpson

Sheriff Gary Simpson

Sheriff Gary Simpson on Thursday stepped in on the Facebook post and ensuing comments. Simpson encourages dialog and constructive criticism, “but I’m not interested in the continuation of bantering and personal agendas associated with those who use this venue for such matters.

“A personal perspective is one thing, while petty character and opinion exchanges are another… and they’re not appropriate for this page,” he said. “If readers want to talk about specific issues with a goal of improving public safety and the quality of life in Kitsap County, then let’s get together and do just that. However arguing on a social media site gets nowhere and is unproductive.”

Simpson told readers to take the debate elsewhere, and he said further postings on the thread would be removed. “People have said their piece… it’s time to move on,” he said.

Smith has been a teacher for 15 years, 10 at Kingston High, according to her webpage on the school’s site.

Pantsuit Nation members revolt after operator cashes in with book deal

hillary-supporters-crying2

From NY Post: Members of an underground pro-Hillary Clinton Facebook group are livid after the operator announced she would be cashing in on the page with a book deal.

News that Pantsuit Nation founder Libby Chamberlain would be putting out a tome next May based on comments from the popular page — which has some 4 million members — prompted a flood of angry comments calling the Brooklin, Maine, woman a sellout.

“Libby you should be ashamed. This is a disgusting betrayal of trust and using others’ stories to make money and gain fame,” wrote a Pantsuit Nation member named Jamie Bryant, who describes herself on Twitter as a “radical feminist bitch.”

The Pantsuit Nation Facebook page was started last October as a place where enthusiastic supporters of the Democratic presidential nominee could gather and talk about their favorite candidate. The page grew by millions in just weeks, and by Election Day, Hillary-loving users posted pictures of themselves in pantsuits going to the polls, hopefully to elect the first female president.

Members were devastated when Clinton lost to GOP nominee Donald Trump and flocked to the page to commiserate.

Clinton herself even seemed to give a shoutout to the page during her concession speech, when she thanked “private Facebook sites” for supporting her campaign.

But when Chamberlain, a part-time school worker with two kids, announced Monday that she was doing the book — which she called “a permanent, beautiful, holdable, snuggle-in-bed-able, dogear-able, shareable, tearstainable book. Your voices. Your stories” — many users felt stabbed in the back.

“Libby, this is a betrayal of safe space,” group member Ellen Byrne wrote. “You can’t invite people to share intimate thoughts . . . then summarily, as an individual, change those terms. Something sacred has happened on this page and I don’t believe it belongs.”

Some were particularly upset that in her announcement, Chamberlain bragged the book would be on “nightstands and coffee tables all around the world.”

pantsuit-nation

Member Ada Y. Sheng wrote: “Can I point out the pathetic irony that 4 million people drawn together behind the incredibly strong and smart woman that we hoped would be the leader of the free world is now . . . going to produce a coffee table book. Seriously?”

Others went on Twitter to mock Chamberlain’s book plans. “5 Million members of Pantsuit Nation and the best they can come up with is another edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul,” wrote user Ijeoma Oluo. “NRA=5million members & a stranglehold on American politics. #PantsuitNation=4million & decided to use that to sell book,” tweeted Saadia Muzaffar.

Chamberlain could not be reached for comment yet she did post this on Facebook (after all the backlash):

“I’m going to clarify some of the issues that have been raised in the last day about the book and our non profit status. I won’t be able to address them all right now, but I will continue to share as much information as possible. But after reading so many of your comments, after absorbing as much pain and hurt as I could, this is the overarching message I would like to offer you. If you trust me, if you trust what I have created here and fostered, along with our 100+ volunteers, through thousands of hours of work and care and attention, then I ask you to trust me further. I will not let you down. This is the most important project of my life, with the exception of being a mother and a wife. My goal is to do good. A lot of good. With your help. If you do not trust me, and if you do not trust this group. That’s ok. This space cannot be for everyone. If you’re not sure you can trust me, then I invite you to stick around and let me continue to show you what this is all about. We’re two months in. We have so much left to do.

Participation in the book is voluntary. No post, image, comment, name, or other information shared in the group will be used in the book without explicit, written permission (and a legal release to use the material) from the author and/or photographer. I have not shared anything from within this group with anyone outside the group. I will personally be in touch with every potential contributor to the book to clarify this process, answer any questions, and make sure that permission is being given with a full understanding of how the post and any accompanying information will be used.

Proceeds from the book will support Pantsuit Nation and the causes that are central to the group. I asked the publisher of the book to let me announce it as early as possible (they would have preferred I waited for another month until more information was available), but that means that we literally announced the book on the same day that our non-profits were formed. These projects are two sides of the same coin. The book will support the non-profits and the non-profits will support the book. The non-profits will be fully transparent, and will engage in the work of advocacy, education, and political activism. We will also use the Pantsuit Nation non-profits as a way to raise money for other likeminded nonprofits (like Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, etc.), by matching contributions given by our members for our weekly calls to action, for example, or through direct fundraising. This is all coming down the line. There is huge potential here to mobilize our passion and energy to do good in the world. The Pantsuit Nation book is one piece of the puzzle that gives us a path forward. I believe it’s a particularly beautiful solution as it both manifests one of the central ideas of our group – that powerful stories inspire meaningful action – as well as provides an initial source of income. Rather than ask each of you to donate money, we’re collaborating on a book that reflects the best of what Pantsuit Nation offers – stories, truths, meaning, light. If you’d like to support this cause, that’s wonderful. If you don’t, you are still most welcome here. We’ll keep this group going as long as possible and no one will be turned away because they are not interested in the book. There will be so many ways to contribute that don’t involve purchasing anything or donating money. We can all play a part, and simply by being here, by listening to each other, by sharing your stories, you are doing something. Let’s keep pushing this forward.”
