Magnatone CEO Tells People ‘Rest Easy,’ Predicts Trump Assassination Within 100 Days

ted-kornblum-tweet

Paging the Secret Service.

From Newsbusters: There has been no shortage of vitriol directed at President Donald Trump, but one CEO recently went beyond criticism to what could be viewed as a threat.

Ted Kornblum, Founder and CEO of Magnatone guitar amplifier company, posted on Jan. 30,  “Rest easy people, it’ll take only 100 days till Trump gets a bullet in the head!” 

Kornblum posted the statement via his personal Facebook page, which now appears to have been deactivated. He issued an apology on the Magnatone company Facebook page for the original post. That page may also have been taken down. The content had been visible on the Magnatone website early Jan. 31.

In that apology, Kornblum downplayed the seriousness of his original post stating, “Earlier today a frivolous, insensitive political post went out on Facebook. It should not have. Magnatone is not a political organization, respects the beliefs and opinions of all people and does business accordingly.”

He also said “I sincerely regret this careless mistake, and apologize to anyone, anywhere, who may have been offended.”

Many people, including talk radio host John Cardillo, have reported the incident to law enforcement and Secret Service through social media.

An Angry Libtard: ‘Avengers’ director Joss Whedon calls Ivanka Trump a dog

joss-whedon

These lefties better seek help. Otherwise they are in for a LOOOOOONG four years.

From NY Post: “Avengers” director Joss Whedon went after President Trump‘s daughter Ivanka Trump, likening her to a Pekingese dog, and called her husband Jared Kushner a “Voldemort in training.”

The filmmaker tweeted alongside a picture of Kushner, “Hey, keep your eyes on this f–king prize too. He’s a Voldemort in training, & unlike the Pekingese he married under, can play the long game.”

Fans immediately called out the self-proclaimed feminist Whedon for comparing Ivanka Trump to a breed of small, yappy dogs.

Whedon’s tweet comes not long after he slammed Nicole Kidman for urging people to support the president and accept the election results. He shared a picture of Kidman next to a Lady Penelope doll to make fun of her “plastic” appearance.

He also brought things to a new level when he took to Twitter earlier this month with a profane, violent message about House Speaker Paul Ryan.

“Violence solves nothing. I want a rhino to f–k @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn because it’s FUNNY, not because he’s a #GOPmurderbro,” Whedon, best known for creating “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” tweeted.

A libtard’s idea of comedy: “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter”

katie-rich-tweet

The edgy womyn Katie Rich and her comedic tweet.

From Daily Mail: A Saturday Night Live writer has been blasted for declaring 10-year-old Barron Trump will become ‘this country’s first homeschool shooter’ in a now deleted tweet. 

Katie Rich fired off the tweet on Inauguration Day, only to delete it three hours later and set her account to private after she faced a barrage of criticism. The comedy writer was branded ‘scum’ by Twitter users who called for her account to be blocked while others urged NBC to fire her.

Just after noon on Friday, Rich wrote: ‘Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter’.

Critics slammed the writer for her ‘tasteless’ joke and called her ‘sick’ and ‘disgusting’ for targeting Trump’s youngest child.

Sam Janney, tweeting under the username @PolitiBunny, wrote: ‘Kids are off limits…and the internet is forever. Shameful @katiemaryrich’

Dennis ONeill wrote: ‘@latiemaryrich what’s your problem. Do you get off picking on little kids? No wonder SNL is garbage these days. You work for them.’

Some Twitter users demanded that she apologize, while several others called for NBC to terminate her contract.

Rich deleted the tweet hours later and set her account to protected, even though that seemed to anger some social medias even more as they continued to berate her online.

The 10-year-old, who accompanied his family to Washington DC this weekend, has been thrust into the limelight as the first son to live in the White House since John F Kennedy Jr. But Barron will be staying put in New York with Melania Trump until he finishes out the year at the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, where tuition starts at $44,120 for those enrolling in pre-K.

Read the rest of the story here.

And let NBC know what you think of Katie’s “comedy.” Contact NBC here.

FYI: As of midnight last night, Katie’s Twitter account no longer existed. Gee, I wonder why?

Hollyweird Libtard Lisa Edelstein Slammed For Alan Thicke Tweet: Death Was To Avoid Donald Trump

Proggies are so edgy…

The classy Lisa Edelstein

The classy Lisa Edelstein

From MSN.com: Lisa Edelstein is getting slammed for joking that Alan Thicke died just to avoid Donald Trump’s presidency.

As Gossip Cop reported, Thicke unexpectedly died at age 69 on Tuesday, after suffering a heart attack. Tributes poured in on Twitter as dozens of celebrities honored and mourned the beloved “Growing Pains” patriarch. Edelstein, however, saw fit to make a joke. Here’s her “joke” tweet:

lisa-edelstein-tweet

Since then, the “Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce” star has been under fire for politicizing and seemingly minimizing the actor’s death. The backlash includes more than a thousand tweets calling Edelstein out for her message.

  • One user, @dfiregirl4 wrote, back, “1) he was Canadian. 2) A family lost a husband and a father. This is NOT the time for politics.” ‏
  • @SpaceRacer423 replied, “the man died in front of his 17yr old son a week before Christmas, but lol Trump right?” ‏
  • @neontaster responded, “First off, it’s Trumpocalypse, not whatever the hell you wrote. Second, you’re a horrible person.”
  • @barrieblonde asked, “Is that suppose to be clever? Geez, give your head a shake; TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE AND CALLOUS! #AlanThicke #CanadianIcon.”
  • @KellyLHedges told the star, “Used to adore you. I have friends on both sides, but no friends who talk sh*t on the dead.”
  • “Why would you do this?” wondered @lifebythecreek, adding, “A simple RIP would suffice. What a sad soul you are.”
  • @sbprice said, “heinous. death of an icon just a way to diss @realDonaldTrump?”
  • @p25735 stated, “@LisaEdelstein Shame on you for trivializing Mr. Thicke’s passing by using it to promote your political agenda.”
  • @kaungko arguved, “No matter which political party one belongs to, it’s never right to joke on someone’s death & loss. Legal? Yes. Right? [100 percent] not.”
  • And, referencing what is probably Edelstein’s best-known TV show, ‏@travelbond tweeted, “@LisaEdelstein Quick! Call HOUSE.. Somebody needs a sensitivity transplant!”

Edelstein has not responded to any of the comments, nor has she addressed her controversial remark.

“Love Trumps Hate”: Assassination threats against Trump flood Twitter

Proggies being hypocrites and lacking any sense of self-awareness, as usual. Some of these tweets are not new. And of course the CEO/SJW of Twitter, Jack Doresy (@jack), is not doing anything to stop this hashtag.

love-trumps-hate

Via NY Post: The shock and anger over Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House has triggered a flood of calls on Twitter and other social media outlets for the president-elect to be assassinated — and authorities will investigate all threats deemed to be credible, The Post has learned.

Some of the tweets I gleamed from Twitter:

Lucia Sandolo

Lucia Sandolo (@DAMN_GINNA)

Lucia Sandolo @DAMN_GINNA (Nov 9): “Usually I wouldn’t condone murder but in this case…

@danterenoir (Nov 10): “Trump will be assassinated

@mercaston (July 21): “The scariest thing about trump is he thinks he can improve people’s view on him.

Monisha Rajesh: A British “journalist” and author. She has since had her Twitter and Facebook accounts deleted.

Trump met Thursday with President Obama in the Oval Office, with the Republican businessman calling the hour-plus session a “great honor.” Obama said they had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, while urging all people to “now come together.”

But that message of inclusion was apparently lost in social media circles, particularly Twitter, where a simple search can reveal dozens and dozens of calls to gun down the next leader of the free world. Some posts called for both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to be assassinated, and there’s even an #AssassinateTrump hashtag.

“Trump chose the literal worst case scenario as VP so nobody would try to impeach or assassinate him,” one user posted on Twitter.

Another user wrote that the “only” remaining question after Tuesday’s historic and polarizing election is who will “assassinate” Trump, who will be inaugurated on Jan. 20. Some users even cited that date as a deadline for the assassination.

Other postings called for users who used the inflammatory hashtag to be contacted by authorities.

Nicole Mainor, a spokesperson for the Secret Service, declined to comment on the posts directly, citing agency policy. “The Secret Service does not provide information regarding protective services,” Mainor said.

But a security source told The Post that the Secret Service would investigate all social media postings containing credible threats, adding that there’s a difference between someone saying they’re planning to kill the president and suggesting that someone else should attempt an assassination. Generally, indirect threats are not prosecuted, according to the source, and investigators will “prioritize” them before determining their credibility.

FBI officials declined comment, referring inquiries to the Secret Service.

More Libtard Butthurt: Clint Eastwood suspended from Twitter

empty chair

Back in August, Clint Eastwood called out the “pussy generation” for being too politically correct. Back then, Eastwood said he planned to vote for Trump, but called it a “tough one” and didn’t endorse the Republican presidential candidate.

Once Trump and Pence were declared the winners, Eastwood had some fun on Twitter. Apparently, too much fun!

Shortly after President-elect Trump and Vice President Elect Pence were elected, Eastwood was suspended from Twitter.  Clint’s Twitter account is @EastwoodUSA.

I suspect the SJWs and @jack had a cow when they saw Eastwood’s tweets. @jack is Jack Dorsey, a cofounder and the CEO of Twitter. He’s also a MAJOR demorat supporter.

This is rich: Clinton News Network warns us about “fake news”

clinton-news-network

From the network that:

From CNN’s post: It’s time for a new rule on the web: Double, no, triple check before you share. Especially if it seems too good to be true.

Why? Look no further than Donald Trump’s Twitter account. Trump claimed Sunday morning that “Twitter, Google and Facebook are burying the FBI criminal investigation of Clinton.”

Not only was there no proof of this, but it was pretty easy to disprove. The FBI email inquiry was at the top of Google News; FBI director James Comey’s name was at the top of Facebook’s “trending” box; and Twitter’s “moments” section had a prominent story about the controversy. (I guess I’ll have to take their word for it. I don’t use Google nor Facebook. As for Twitter, well, just ask Jack.)

You can trust Facebook...

You can trust Facebook…

Nevertheless, Trump’s wrong-headed “burying” claim was his most popular tweet of the day. About 25,000 accounts retweeted it and almost 50,000 “liked” it, helping the falsehood spread far and wide.

The rise of social media has had many upsides, but one downside has been the spread of misinformation. Fake news has become a plague on the Web, especially on social networks like Facebook. As I said on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN, unreliable sources about this election have become too numerous to count.

So that’s what I recommended a “triple check before you share” rule.

New web sites designed to trick and mislead people seem to pop up every single day. For their creators, the incentives are clear: more social shares mean more page views mean more ad dollars.

But the B.S. stories hurt the people who read and share them over and over again. Many of these fakes reinforce the views of conservative or liberal voters and insulate them from the truth. The stories prey on people who want to believe the worst about the opposition.

A recent BuzzFeed study of “hyperpartisan Facebook pages” found that these pages “are consistently feeding their millions of followers false or misleading information.” (There you have it. From the expert journalism of “BuzzFeed.”)

The less truthful the content, the more frequently it was shared — which does not bode well for the nation’s news literacy during a long, bitter election season. “Right-wing pages were more prone to sharing false or misleading information than left-wing pages,” the BuzzFeed reporting team said.

Judge Judy shakes head rolls eyes

On a few occasions, made-up or highly misleading stories have even snuck into Facebook’s “trending” box — a problem that the company says it is trying to address.

In a few cases, Trump aides and family members have themselves been duped by fake news stories, including a hoax version of ABC News with a story headlined “Donald Trump Protester Speaks Out: ‘I Was Paid $3,500 To Protest Trump’s Rally.'”

A close look at the web site reveals that it is not, in fact, the actual ABC News. But the site tricked Trump’s son Eric Trump in early October. “Finally, the truth comes out,” he tweeted, promoting a link to the bogus story.

As soon as I spoke about this on television on Sunday, CNN detractors filled my inbox with messages saying that CNN is the ultimate example of “fake news.”  But that’s a deliberate attempt to confuse the issue. Whatever faults CNN has, news organizations small and large try very hard to report the truth.

baby laughing

Fake news sites and Facebook feeds, on the other hand, traffic in misinformation. My sense is that there are three buckets of these sites:

#1, Hoax sites with totally made-up news headlines that try to trick you;

#2, Hyperpartisan sites that aren’t lying, per se, but are misleading, because they only share good news about your political party and bad news about the other party;

#3, “Hybrids” that purposely mix a little bit of fact and then a lot of fiction.

These sites aren’t going away, so it’s up to Internet users to spot fake news and avoid spreading it.  Fact-checking sites like Snopes can help — they are devoted to ferreting out hoaxes and tricks.

Josh Stearns, a longtime media activist who now works at Democracy Fund, said newsrooms also have a role to play.

“Fact checking has taken center stage in this election, but newsrooms need to go beyond fact checking politicians statements and help debunk viral misinformation too,” he told me. “At a time when trust in media is at an all time low, journalists should call out these fake news stories and help citizens tell fact from fiction.”

clinton-news-network2

Trump’s false claim about Google, Facebook and Twitter “burying” bad news about Clinton criticized what he called the “very dishonest media.” Ironically, he was using Twitter to blast Twitter.

Trump may have gotten the idea from an inaccurate Zero Hedge blog post alleging a “social media blackout.” The blog post contained false information. I asked the Trump campaign to provide a source for the wild claim, but no one has responded.
