Scientist wins Miss USA, slammed for ‘conservative’ comments

miss usa

Kara: Intelligent, gorgeous, and leans conservative. No wonder the proggies despise her.

Of course she was slammed. Proggies have a funny way of displaying their tolerance.

Via NY Post: A 25-year-old scientist from the District of Columbia who works for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission was crowned Miss USA Sunday — and she did it after making some controversial comments about political issues during the competition.

Kara McCullough caused a firestorm on social media after she gave conservative answers to questions — saying she wasn’t a feminist and that she thought people need to have a job to have health care.

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” McCullough said, when asked if access to medical care was a right, as liberals such as Sen. Bernie Sanders say, or a privilege, as many conservatives say.

She then added: “As a government employee, I’m granted health care and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs.”

Later in the competition, McCullough and two other challengers were asked to explain what they consider feminism to be and whether they consider themselves feminists.

Miss District of Columbia replied that she likes to “transpose” the word feminism to “equalism.”

“I don’t want to call myself a feminist,” McCullough said. “Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.”

McCullough, who graduated with a chemistry degree from South Carolina State University, said after the contest: “I believe we’ve come a long way and there is more work to be done. I think domestically we are making progress and I do believe that we will become equal one day.”

#MissUSA trended on Twitter, as many users criticized her answers. “#MissUSA Miss DC just lost me with that answer….Affordable healthcare is a privilege? Girl bye,” tweeted a user named @dazella_may.

“DC just disqualified herself with that answer #MissUSA,” a user named Keeni Rodgers piled.

Others rushed to defend her.

“Black people hating on #MissUSA because of conservative positions need to stop acting like owned brainwashed slaves to the left,” a user named Darnell Wesh said of McCullough, who is African-American.

She will go on to compete in the Miss Universe contest.

“I’m extremely thankful for this opportunity,” she said after the event, which was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the Las Vegas Strip. “I just want to encourage so many women nationwide to find their passion in any subject possible and understand that nothing is difficult if you really, truly put the work in for it.”

Libtard Chrissy Teigen Wants President Donald Trump to Pay Her Medical Bills

chrissy teigen

Not so strong after all…

From Yahoo: Chrissy Teigen has been pretty vocal in her criticism of President Donald Trump. The 31-year-old model has regularly trolled Trump, starting back in 2011, and continuing well after his inauguration in January.

Teigen famously tweeted: “What time should we call your Uber?” after the president said he intended to keep “evil” out of the United States, a presumed reference to a judge blocking the implementation of Trump’s proposed travel ban on people from several Muslim-Majority countries.

Now Teigen, the wife of fellow Trump critic John Legend, is holding Trump responsible for a few problems she has—and she wants the Republican president to pay her medical bills.

Teigen went on a Twitter spree on Wednesday evening, saying that Trump’s antics were on the brink of forcing her to up her medication dosage. She also tweeted about the extreme measures she’d taken to reduce tension following the first 100 days of the 45th president of the United States.

As well as causing her to consider upping her meds, Teigen said the president’s behavior in office had given her tooth grinding and jaw tension problems.

It’s not clear what provoked this instance of Teigen’s Trump rage. Perhaps it was the president telling Palestinian leaders visiting the White House that securing a peaceful end to more than six decades of conflict with Israel was “maybe not as difficult as people have thought.” Perhaps it was Trump claiming that alleged ties between his presidential campaign and Russia was a “phony story” used by his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to justify her loss. Or maybe it was the tension of awaiting a crucial vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday regarding the proposed repeal of Obamacare.

Teigen might’ve been wise to take her request to Twitter, the president’s favorite social network—Trump’s revised healthcare bill, dubbed Trumpcare, won’t be covering Teigen’s medical costs.

Lifetime is now promoting illegal assisted suicide in their new TV show

I saw an ad on TV for “Mary Kills People,” which is promoting a doctor who provides underground “end of life” care. The show originated in Canada and is now being shown here in the US on Lifetime.

Here’s a description of the show and production from Wikipedia:

Mary Kills People is a Canadian black comedy-drama television series, starring Caroline Dhavernas. The series premiered on Global on January 25, 2017.

The series is set around the life of Dr. Mary Harris, an overworked single mother and ER doctor who also moonlights as an underground angel of death – working outside the law assisting patients who want to die on their own terms. So far Mary has managed to stay under the radar but business is booming, and her double life is getting complicated,

The series, which was to comprise six episodes, was commissioned by TV channel Global on January 28, 2016. Production began in summer 2016, and the first episode aired January 25, 2017. For the United States, the series was picked up by Lifetime on October 13, 2016. The channel came on board as a co-producer and was involved in creative aspects of the project, including casting. Mary Kills People premiered in the US on Lifetime on April 23, 2017.

As of January 23, 2017, there are talks to do a second season according to Metro News and Caroline Dhavernas.

According to Wikipedia, some critics just love the show:

John Doyle of the Globe and Mail called the first episode of the show “remarkably assured, droll and adult. It’s very smart and utterly intriguing.” He praises Mary Harris as “one of the most compelling, original female characters in years” and Caroline Dhavernas as “exceptional” in her portrayal: “Perhaps the best thing about it is the crazy sparkle in Mary’s eyes. There is something anarchic bubbling inside her.”

Variety‘s Maureen Ryan was much more positive, saying the show “pulls off a melding of tones — comedic, dramatic, and philosophical — that seems next to impossible,” but criticized the first season’s romance subplots.

Another TV show I won’t be watching.

Let Lifetime know what you think of their new show. Contact them on Facebook or Twitter.

Student gets into Stanford after writing #BlackLivesMatter on application 100 times

college degree.jpg

Twofer: Ahmed played the victim and racism/Muslim cards.

From CNN: If you’re applying to college, you can spend hours crafting the perfect admissions essay. Or you can just write the same word 100 times. It worked for Ziad Ahmed.

The Princeton, New Jersey, high school senior was recently admitted to Stanford University after writing #BlackLivesMatter 100 times in response to the application question, “What matters to you and why?”

Ahmed has been flooded with attention since posting his essay answer to Twitter. “First, there was a word limit on the question prompt — you couldn’t have less than 100 words,” he explained in an interview with CNN.

“As I completed my application, my academic work, volunteer activity, extracurricular and activism created a picture, but it became apparent to me as I neared that final question that the picture lacked my voice,” he added. “It was important that to me that the admissions officers literally hear my impatience for justice and the significance of this issue.”

Ahmed, 18, is a practicing Muslim and a self-described activist. He says much of his passion stems from him experiencing racism of his own.

He says he decided to use the hashtag because it conveyed his frustrations with the judicial system’s failure to protect the black community from violence, systemic inequity and political disenfranchisement.

CNN reached out to Stanford to confirm Ahmed’s story. A university spokesman said the school does not comment on student applications.

As a freshman in high school Ahmed founded Redefy, a nonprofit organization that advocates for social justice. Its mission is to defy stereotypes, defeat hate and promote tolerance through workshops for young students.

Ahmed says that as a Muslim who has faced bigotry in the United States he feels an affinity for African-Americans. “The Islamophobia that is heavily present in this country is connected to the legacy of racism and oppression that the black community continues to face,” he said.

Ahmed told CNN he has been bullied online by white extremists since his successful Stanford application made headlines. But he says he’s also been overwhelmed by an outpouring of support and congratulations.

He hopes his story will encourage others to fight intolerance and social inequity.

Ahmed is still deciding which school he will attend. But wherever he goes to college, he said it’s his goal to listen, develop and innovate to become a better advocate and a better citizen. “I am many things, but I am an unapologetic progressive activist first and foremost,” he said.

American Idol contestant reveals she ‘chose to be heterosexual’ after being gay for two years following accusations of homophobia

la porsha renaeI guarantee you that proggies are tearing La Porsha apart on Twitter for her choice. Her choice does not fit the LGBT narrative.

From Daily Mail: American Idol loser La’Porsha Renae has revealed she chose heterosexuality after two years living as gay. The 23-year-old shared the information after being accused of homophobia on social media.

She claimed on Twitter that she decided to turn her back on the world of lesbianism after decided to be ‘true to her spirit.’

Soul singer La’Porsha said: ‘She said: ‘I chose to be heterosexual after being homosexual for 2 years. I chose a belief system that felt TRUE to my spirit. #TRUTH.’

And when another user told her that she could not have been really gay during those two years she fired back yet again. La’Porsha said: ‘Lol now who’s judging? U haven’t walked in my shoes, so don’t try to diagnose me…it’s not your place 2 tell me what I was/wasn’t.’

The whole affair began after the singer, who was runner up in the final season of American Idol, was accused of being homophobic by some of her followers. She responded: ‘Phobia is a fear. I’m not afraid of homosexuals, nor do I hate them. I respect and love EVERYONE.’

And when another told her that she was wrong people can choose homosexuality as she watched her ‘brother grow up gay he was born that way,’ she decided to bring her own experiences to bear on the debate.

She said: ‘You’re wrong to think it’s not a choice for some….because it was for me. #Truth.

”And the bigger picture of my statement was that homosexuals should be loved and respected, not dehumanized…not whether/not it was a choice.’

Muslim “human rights activist” to Le Pen: “I am going to slit your throat Muslim-style”

marine-le-pen-death-threat-blogger-mehdi-meklat-threatened-kill-770823

It was just words of his “fictional character.” Um, yeah, riiiiiiiight.

From Express UK: For years, Mehdi Meklat, a 24-year-old human rights activist and former Bondy Blog journalist – who, until last week, was hailed as one of France’s rising media stars – published “sickening” tweets under the pseudonym ‘Marcelin Deschamps’, a “provocative” but “fictional” character who, according to the young writer, “does not reflect his personal beliefs, values and morals”.

On Twitter, Mr. Meklat – writing as Marcelin Deschamps – threatened to kill Marine Le Pen. He wrote: “I am going to slit your throat Muslim-style.”

The journalist is also guilty of apologising terrorism and anti-Semitism: hiding behind his ‘fictional’ character, he praised Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah, said that he “really missed Osama bin Laden” and that we should “bring back Hitler”.

He also said that he wanted to “rape” former Charlie Hebdo editor-in-chief, Charb – one of the victims of the January 2015 terrorist attacks – with a “Laguiole knife”.

On Saturday, Mr. Meklat cleaned his Twitter account – he went from 50,000 to 503 tweets – and issued a public apology, branding his hateful tweets as “obsolete” and “irrelevant”.

He tweeted: “I’m sorry if some of you were shocked by my tweets. They are obsolete… The words of my fictional character do not reflect my own personal thoughts and beliefs, quite the opposite. Via Marcelin Deschamps, a provocative character, I was trying to encourage critical thinking.”

His apology, however, has largely fallen on deaf ears.

On Sunday, Marion Marechal Le Pen, Mrs. Le Pen’s niece, tweeted: “Praising Merah, threats, homophobia, hate and anti-Semitism. Why is the press protecting @mehdi_meklat?”

Members of the Printemps républicain, a left-wing organisation explicitly formed to promote and protect secularism in France, bitterly condemned Mr. Meklat’s tweets in a press release and said that, had he been a member of France’s far-right, he would have been excoriated and denounced by the press “a very long time ago”.

They wrote: “For years, Mr. Meklat published racist, sexist and hate-filled tweets. And yet, editors and newspapers continued to hire and support him. If a far-right journalist had tweeted what Mr. Meklat tweeted, he would have been lynched by the press and would probably have ended up in court.”
