No longer “propositioned” all day: Libtard Lena Dunham celebrates getting fat

lena dunham fat

Apparently Dunham has gained some weight. She took to Instagram to declare herself a “body positivity warrior.”

From her Instagram post:

“On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy. On the right: 162 pounds, happy joyous & free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits. Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees. As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.

Elton John calls for social media boycott over homophobic hate speech

elton john

The Queen has spoken.

From Hollywood Reporter: Elton John has no tolerance for homophobia, and now the legend has blamed social media for allowing hate speech to slide on their platforms. In an interview with BBC News on Friday (June 8), John said that major social media companies “haven’t done anything to try to stem the flow of hate on the internet,” and proposed that a boycott could make them take action.

“I don’t know why they allow it. It’s supposed to be free speech, but the things that are on social media are so disgusting that there has to be action taken by the people who own these companies. ... People say, ‘Well, what about my freedom of speech?’ Well, sod your freedom of speech,” he said.

John explained that a boycott would make social media giants “sit up” and take a stance against homophobic hate speech on their platforms.

The interview followed shortly after John gave the Diana, Princess of Wales lecture on HIV, where he also demanded social media companies take more aggressive action.

“Companies like Facebook and Instagram cannot pretend they are purely private enterprises. I believe they have a public role and responsibility,” he said. “But if we found ways to automatically respond to hatred with fact, good could be all the way around the world before falsehood even got its boots on.”

Michelle Obama: “I’d never stood out because of the color of my skin”

Michelle Obama…delivering inspiring words

The perpetual victimhood shtick never gets old for some people.

From Daily Mail: Many former students remember having to fend off college jitters at the start of their education—and among them is none other than Michelle Obama, who reminisced about her ‘scary’ experience at Princeton University in a new Instagram post.

The former first lady, 54, shared a photo of herself as a young student on Tuesday, explaining it was taken in the early 1980s at the Ivy League institution. Michelle enrolled in 1981 at the age of 17 before graduating cum laude in 1985 with a B.A. in Sociology.

She can be seen in the image posing on campus in a denim jacket and red sweater, carrying a bag on her left shoulder. While Michelle smiles confidently at the camera in the snap, going to college was a frightening experience for her, as she explained in her post.

‘This is me at Princeton in the early 1980s,’ she wrote next to the photo. ‘I know that being a first-generation college student can be scary, because it was scary for me.’

Michelle, the daughter of the late Fraser Robinson, a water purification worker, and Marian Robinson, a former bank secretary, enrolled at Princeton following in the footsteps of her brother, a graduate of the class of 1983. Neither of their parents attended college.

‘I was black and from a working-class neighborhood in Chicago, while Princeton’s student body was generally white and well-to-do,’ Michelle added in her Instagram post.

‘I’d never stood out in a crowd or a classroom because of the color of my skin before.  

‘But I found close friends and a mentor who gave me the confidence to be myself. Going to college is hard work, but every day I meet people whose lives have been profoundly changed by education, just as mine was.’

The former first lady, who congratulated the class of 2018 in her message, shared her tips with current students who might also be facing difficulties or feel intimidated, adding: ‘My advice to students is to be brave and stay with it.’

Michelle has been sharing a series of throwback photos on her Instagram account ahead of the release of her memoir, Becoming, which is to be released in November.

On Wednesday, she posted a picture of herself and her husband Barack, 56, on their wedding day in October 1992. She can be seen sitting on a chair during their reception, laughing while Barack removes her garter belt as per tradition.

‘You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold,’ she wrote in the caption.

‘Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night. Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.’

On Tuesday, the former first lady posted a photo of herself as a girl with her parents, sharing tributes to each of them. ‘My father, Fraser, taught me to work hard, laugh often, and keep my word,’ she wrote.

‘My mother, Marian, showed me how to think for myself and to use my voice. Together, in our cramped apartment on the South Side of Chicago, my family helped me see the value in our story, in my story, and in the larger story of our country.’

Michelle has opened up in the past about her time as a student, and earlier this month further reminisced on the ‘struggle’ she experience at the start of her undergraduate career at a public event in Philadelphia.

She took to the stage during College Signing Day, which honors Philadelphia students for their pursuit of a college education or career in the military. The event stems from her Reach Higher initiative, which Michelle launched four years ago as first lady in support of education nationwide. 

The Princeton and Harvard Law School graduate told the crowd of 7,000 students of her own doubts back when she started her education—and coached them on how to overcome their own insecurities.

Michelle, whose daughter Malia, 19, is currently a freshman at Harvard University, started by assuring the students that it is ‘perfectly normal’ for them to be scared at the prospect of starting college, because she ‘certainly’ was.

‘But here’s the advice that I have for you. You’re going to get to college and you’re going to struggle sometimes because we all struggle,’ she said during the event.

When Barack and I set foot in the White House, it was a struggle. There were a lot of people who told us that we weren’t supposed to be in the White House, that we couldn’t handle the pressure, that we weren’t ready. So I’m telling you: they will doubt you today and they will doubt you for the rest of your life. But you will have some struggle, and that’s OK.

This is the UK: British girl prosecuted for hate crime after posting rap song lyrics to her Instagram account

are-you-serious

Heaven forbid British authorities actually worry about REAL CRIME in their country.

The UK is toast.

From BBC: Chelsea Russell, 19, from Liverpool posted the lyric from Snap Dogg’s I’m Trippin’ to pay tribute to a boy who died in a road crash, a court heard.

Russell argued it was not offensive, but was handed a community order.

Prosecutors said her sentence was increased from a fine to a community order “as it was a hate crime”.

She was charged after Merseyside Police were anonymously sent a screenshot of her update.

Liverpool Justice Centre, sitting at Sefton Magistrates’ Court, heard Russell posted the lyrics to her account after the death of a 13-year-old in a road accident in 2017, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

The words Russell used on her account contained a racial label which some people find extremely offensive.

The screenshot was passed to hate crime unit PC Dominique Walker, who told the court the term was “grossly offensive” to her as a black woman and to the general community.

The Liverpool Echo reported that Russell’s defence had argued the usage of the word had changed over time and it had been used by superstar rapper Jay-Z “in front of thousands of people at the Glastonbury Festival”.

Prosecutor Angela Conlan said Russell’s defence also argued her profile “wasn’t public”, but it had been proved in court that anyone could access it and “see the offensive language”.

She said prosecutors also “sourced case law that showed that posting the profile on her account constituted sending it and making it public”.

Russell was found guilty of sending a grossly offensive message by a public communication.

She was given an eight-week community order, placed on an eight-week curfew and told to pay costs of £500 and an £85 victim surcharge.

Such a diva: Libtard Beyoncé asks press not to publish unflattering photos

If you put yourself in the public forum then you are open to criticism. Especially when you so freely choose to criticize others, such as the ones who are paid to protect you.

From NY Post: Beyoncé doesn’t trust Instagram.

Page Six has learned that the superstar’s publicist sent out an e-mail to news outlets Friday asking them not to publish fans’ pictures of her hotly anticipated performance at Coachella — and to stick with the approved shots of Saturday’s show instead.

It appears to be an attempt to prevent a replay of the situation after her 2013 Super Bowl halftime show, when her team famously e-mailed BuzzFeedasking the Web site to take down a series of “unflattering photos” from a gallery of her showstopping performance.

Beyoncé’s rep didn’t get back to us.

Guess what is responsible for this: London sees surge in knife attacks

saddiq khan

Wait until you read what the police blame this on…seriously.

From Fox News: London became a bit more like New York City in February, but it’s not a distinction to be proud of.

The city of Big Ben and the tube that sits on the Thames River overtook New York in murders for the first time in modern history as the British capital dealt with a surge in knife attacks.

The Sunday Times reports that 15 people were murdered in London, against 14 in New York. Both cities are very diverse with large populations: London has over 8.7 million residents to New York’s 8.5 million.

In March, according to the British publication, there had been 22 killings in London versus 21 in New York.

A massive decline in crime has helped to transform New York City: In 1990, of 2,245 people were murdered. Last year, however, that number dropped nearly 90 percent to 290 murders.

The total number of murders in London has fluctuated over the years, but it’s risen by 38 percent since 2014.

The Sunday Times reports that FBI data and crime studies show that since 1800 London has typically had a murder rate per person of between half and a 20th of New York’s.

Including January, London still has fewer murders so far this year — 45 against 55 — and its total in 2017 was also lower. But the gap has narrowed in recent years.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said websites and mobile phone applications such as YouTube, Snapchat and Instagram were partially to blame for the bloodshed, the Evening Standard reports.

Fatal stabbings in England and Wales are now at their highest levels since 2011, rising by 12 per cent in the year ending December 2017.
