L’Oreal fires “transgender” model who said all white people are racist

Munroe Bergdorf: Out of a job

Girl bye.

From NY Post: French cosmetics giant L‘Oreal fired its first transgender model to appear on a British advertising campaign after she described all white people as racist on Facebook.

London-based model Munroe Bergdorf announced on her Facebook page on Aug. 27 that she was to be part of the French cosmetics brand’s new advertising campaign celebrating diversity.

In an online message that later appeared on Friday to have been deleted, Bergdorf said, according to the Daily Mail newspaper: “Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.”

L‘Oreal’s UK unit said on its Twitter page it had decided to terminate her contract: “L‘Oreal champions diversity. Comments by Munroe Bergdorf are at odds with our values and so we have decided to end our partnership with her.

In a post on her page on Friday, Bergdorf criticized the Daily Mail article and sought to defend her comments, which she said were a reaction to the violence of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“When I stated that ‘all white people are racist,’ I was addressing that fact that western society as a whole, is a SYSTEM rooted in white supremacy — designed to benefit, prioritize and protect white people before anyone of any other race,” she said.

Bull gores anti-bullfighting activist who jumped into French arena

bull gore2

Almost got himself a Darwin Award.

From Fox News: An anti-bullfighting activist protesting the gory sport on Sunday was attacked by a bull when he jumped into a French arena in an attempt to protect the animal, police said.

A man in his 30s and a woman attending the event in Carcassone in southern France sneaked their way into the main ring, AFP News Agency reported. The incident happened during the “novillada,” when younger bulls are placed in the ring.

A bull charged toward the man, stabbing him with its horns and causing “a long but not deep” injury, police said. The woman was not injured.

A source told AFP the man “was very lucky” and was not “properly gored.” 

The man was rushed to the hospital and treated for his injuries.

Two other protesters hung a banner that read, “Stop Bullfighting” at the event earlier in the day. Bullfighting is banned in most parts of France except in some towns in the southern part of the country where it is part of the local traditions, AFP reported.

In August, a vegan activist jumped into a bullfighting ring at a French festival to urge French President Emmanuel Macron to ban the sport in the country, according to The Local.

The protester ran through the ring with a sign that read: “No to the Corrida, save the bulls — Vegan strike group.”

Environmental hypocrite DiCaprio and friends jet to St. Tropez to save the environment

Leonardo DiCaprio takes part in a march against climate change in New York

Just as he did last year, environmental crusader hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio hosted a fundraiser in St. Tropez on July 26 to “save the icebergs.”

Wonder how much carbon emissions these hypocrites released into the air flying over to save the planet party in St. Tropez.

From MSN: Leonardo DiCaprio reunited with Titanic co-stars Kate Winslet and Billy Zane at his annual charity auction in St Tropez. The acting trio, who starred together in 1997’s Oscar-winning epic, joked that they were now “saving” the icebergs, 20 years on.

“Gangs back together. Now we’re saving icebergs. Go figure,” Zane wrote underneath a picture of the group.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation hosts a star-studded gala in the South of France every summer, to raise money for his environmental projects.

This year one of the auction lots was a private dinner with DiCaprio and Winslet at a New York restaurant in October.

Proceeds will also go to Winslet’s GoFundMe campaign, which helps young mothers in the UK pay for cancer treatment.

Madonna and Lenny Kravitz performed at the event, which honoured Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo with the foundation’s New World Leadership Award.

Last year the gala raised a staggering $45 million for various environmental charities, with an impressive $80 million in total since its inauguration in 2010.

What the lying, globalist media rats won’t show you: France is a war zone

CNN’s Becky Anderson would like for you to believe that peaceful Muslims honored the dead London terrorist victims. She is lying to promote a globalist agenda.

The amount of terror and carnage that terrorist Muslims and refugees are causing throughout Europe is devastating. 

The media will not report the truth of what is happening. Just watch the above video from France to witness what is really occurring.

May I suggest that if you have plans to visit France this summer that you cancel them NOW.

This video is from Refugee Crisis in the EU. From their YouTube video:

Suspect’s status as failed asylum-seeker stuns Stockholm

stockholm terrorist attack

The “truck attack” in Stockholm

I don’t know why this is a shock to anyone. Guess they have been living under a rock.

From AP: Much like the flags on the Stockholm skyline — some still flying half-staff, others at their peak — people here were divided over their country’s friendly immigration policies two days after an asylum-seeker from Uzbekistan allegedly killed four people in the city’s deadliest extremist attack in years.

The Swedish capital was slowly, but resolutely, regaining its normal rhythm Sunday as details about the 39-year-old suspect emerged. Police said he had been ordered to leave Sweden in December after his request for a residence permit was rejected six months earlier.

Instead, he allegedly went underground, eluding authorities’ attempts to track down and deport him until a hijacked beer truck raced down a pedestrian street and rammed into an upscale department store on Friday.

“It makes me frustrated,” Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told Swedish news agency TT on Sunday. The suspect, who has been detained on suspicion of terrorist offenses, was known known for having “been sympathetic to extremist organizations,” Jonas Hysing of Sweden’s national police said.

A second person was arrested on the same potential charge Sunday, and four others were being held by police. None of them have been identified.

Security officials in neighboring Norway, where a 17-year-old asylum-seeker from Russia was detained early Sunday in connection with an explosive device found near a busy subway station, spoke of the alarming potential for a copycat effect.

Norwegian’s security agency said it wasn’t clear if the teen planned to carry out an attack with the primitive homemade device police defused without any injuries. Agency head Benedicte Bjornland said it was likely the youth had been inspired by recent attacks in Stockholm, France, Germany, Britain and Russia.

“The attacks demonstrate how easy such attacks can be carried out, and prove to others that it is possible to make something similar,” Bjornland said.

Sweden has long been known for its open-door policy toward migrants and refugees. But after the Scandinavian country of 10 million took in a record 163,000 refugees in 2015 — the highest per-capita rate in Europe — the government has tried to be more selective about which newcomers it allows to stay.

Swedish police said Sunday they had received roughly 12,500 referrals from the Swedish Migration Board of people who, like the suspect in the truck attack, had overstayed their welcome. The suspect eluded authorities by giving police a wrong address after his residency request was rejected in June 2016, said Hysing, the operative head of the attack investigation. “The efforts to locate (these people) is both time-consuming and resource-intensive,” he said.

National Coordinator Against Violent Extremism Anna Carlstedt, who used to lead the Red Cross in Sweden, said Friday’s attack and the background of the suspect posed “difficult questions.”

“Do we somehow need a more repressive policy?” Carlstedt said. “I think it is very important now not to rush into something, to see how we can safeguard this open society and still be able to protect ourselves.”

The range of mixed emotions — fear and fraternity, anger and openness, — also surfaced at memorial services and rallies held in Stockholm on Sunday to honor the attack victims.

Death over a pronoun? Berkeley killing renews debate over gender pronouns

Protest against the return of Sujit Choudhry to campus and reaction to editorial by him.

Pablo Gomez Jr. in the center, protesting, as usual.

Now the narrative is that the incorrect usage of a pronoun is the cause of a murder? I call BS.

From Sacramento Bee: Pablo Gomez Jr. was a University of California, Berkeley, senior majoring in Latino studies and a prominent campus activist when authorities say he stabbed to death a popular elementary-school teacher.

Soon, the crime that police described as “very brutal and unusual” in a city that reported just two homicides last year was sucked up into the debate over gender identity when it was reported that Gomez preferred to be called “they” rather than “he.”

Even in famously liberal Berkeley, with its long history of protest, the uproar came as a surprise, overwhelming the online news site, http://www.berkeleyside.com, that first reported on Gomez’s preference. “I didn’t see it as something that would anger anyone,” reporter Emilie Raguso said.

After Raguso’s report, conservative commentator Ann Coulter ridiculed the pronoun change and mocked Gomez’s activist background. Breitbart.com and other conservative political websites picked up the story.

On the university campus, where the debate over nontraditional pronouns has simmered, some students said Gomez’s case is different. “I think you give away your right to make a demand like that when you are arrested for killing somebody,” said junior Jonothan Chow, a member of the College Republicans.

Representatives of UC Berkeley’s Gender Equity Resource Center, where Gomez was a member, declined requests to comment on the controversy, as did other gay rights activist groups in Berkeley.

Victim Emile Inman, a 27-year-old native of France, was found in her home in January with a “We Stand with Standing Rock” sign in the front window she shared with other young roommates a few miles from campus. Hours earlier on Jan. 6, police found Kiana Schmitt, 24, seriously injured outside an apartment just north of campus. Police have declined to say how Schmitt was connected to Gomez.

Gomez was arrested Jan. 7 at a Burbank hospital near the Southern California home of Gomez’s parents. Gomez is being held in jail and is accused of killing Inman and assaulting Schmitt.

A young woman who answered the door this week at Inman’s home declined to comment, and her family also has refused requests from The Associated Press and other media to comment on her death.

Gomez’s attorney, George Arroyo, declined to comment and Gomez’s parents did not respond to email requests for comment. Their telephone listing in Los Angeles appears disconnected.

The judge in the case ordered a mental health evaluation after Gomez was removed from a Feb. 1 court hearing to enter a plea to charges of murder, attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and robbery.

Deputies led a kicking and screaming Gomez from the courtroom after a brief meeting with Arroyo.

Roman Polanski agrees to return to the US if he’s guaranteed no jail time

Roman Polanski

Meryl Streep and Lena Dunham are no doubt ecstatic about this development.

From Yahoo: 39 years after fleeing the US in the face of rape charges, Roman Polanski has at last agreed to return, but with one somewhat unbelievable caveat.

Deadline report that the 83-year old French-Polish director’s legal representation has told the Los Angeles Superior Court that their client will come back to LA and face his charges so long as he is given the guarantee that he will serve no jail time.

The motion filed by attorney Harland Braun declares, “Mr. Polanski asks this Court to acknowledge that he was promised a specific custody portion of his sentence by Judge Rittenband and he has more than fulfilled the custody portion of his sentence under the principle of comity, California law and the admissions by the District Attorney to the Polish Court. With such assurance by this current Court, Mr. Polanski will return to Los Angeles to be sentenced.”

It seems doubtful this audacious demand will go down well in all corners, given Polanski is charged with the rape of a 13-year old girl in 1977.

The initial deal offered by Judge Laurence Rittenband in 1978 decreed that Polanski would serve only 90 days in a psychiatric hospital – again, somewhat audacious under the circumstances. However, after being informed that the Judge had changed his mind and would push for the maximum sentence, Polanski fled the country.

Polanski has been a controversial figure in the four decades since. More than once the US courts have attempted to extradite him to face charges, whilst Polanski’s own legal representation has more than once failed to get the charges dropped out of court.

None of this has stopped Polanski from continuing with his career as a filmmaker, however, and at the 75th Academy Awards in 2003 he was awarded the Best Director Oscar for ‘The Pianist.’
