IHOP pulls ads from Tucker Carlson's show after immigration comments spark backlash

More than a dozen companies have stopped advertising since, according to various media reports. The first company to pull the plug was Pacific Life, which ran an ad shortly after Carlson's "dirtier" comment, The Washington Post reported. Others include Bowflex, Indeed and Ancestry.com.

Others, including Mitsubishi, Farmers Insurance and John Deere, have said they will not pull their ads from the show, and a Fox News spokesperson said Tuesday the yanked ads would be placed elsewhere within the network, meaning no revenue would be lost.

 

"We cannot and will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts," Fox News wrote in a statement, blaming left-leaning advocacy groups for pressuring advertisers....

Unless these companies promote racism and hatred, they never should have been an Advertiser on this show to begin with. It's not just a matter that they're trying to take The High Ground, they bloody well know that they will lose their clientele if they continue on a show that promotes such filth.

Just what took them so long to see the light?

 Money is where their heart is.

Pennsylvania police investigating threatening letters sent to minorities

signed 'Donald and his Crew'

......''Dear Non-U.S. Citizens,” the letter begins. “Due to the our recently elected president, Donald Trump, and his amazing changes, there is now a law against filthy nutheads like yourself living in our country.”

The letter continues by saying the residents will be evicted from their homes at “9 a.m. tomorrow afternoon,” but “Donald and his crew think its best if you pack ur bags tonight and don’t say goodbye to any1.”

The letter then threatens that if the residents are not in “New Mexico (city)” then they will “1. Put u up for adoption” and “2. Execute u and ur kidos.”

The letter also suggests the recipients get jobs at McDonald's, Denny’s or as legal prostitutes, the newspaper reported.

It is signed “Sincerely, Donald and his Crew, specifically Mike Pence.”

It also includes a “#MAGA,” referencing Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

 

Students at local Strath Haven High School are reportedly suspected of writing the threats

and separately posing for a photo wearing Ku Klux Klan hoods, ABC 6 News reported. The two incidents may be linked.........

Geez, Life is TOO short to listen to long, blind videos from unnamed sources.....

Can't you just sum up main talking points!??

:blink::unsure:

That racists/ WNs give those weak people a sense of belonging and implement an "augmented reality" to blame everything on the minorities and Jews. He was comparing it to the game where you seek out pokemon to destroy in real life. He also discusses transgender rights at the end. Also it is not unsourced, it's from a very important philosopher.

Founder of viral fundraiser for Trump's border wall has questionable news past

Brian Kolfage told NBC News he didn’t want to mention his previous projects because he “didn’t want it to be a distraction.”

 

".......The fundraising page doesn’t mention Kolfage’s most recent business venture, a Facebook page titled Right Wing News and a ring of affiliate sites that frequently trafficked in conspiracy theories.

In October, Right Wing News was pulled down by Facebook in a sweep of more than 559 pages that the company said were “using fake accounts… to drive traffic to their websites” or “were ad farms using Facebook to mislead people into thinking that they were forums for legitimate political debate.”

Days after the pulldown, Kolfage created a group called Fight4FreeSpeech, which accepts donations, and is also not referenced in the GoFundMe.....

 

The sites often trafficked in false, inflammatory and racist content, including headlines like “Obnoxious Black People Lose Their Minds When Victoria Secret Models Say This 1 Word On Live Video” and “Trump Just Released Embarrassing Vids Of Obama’s Muslim Friends That He Never Wanted Seen.”

FreedomDaily and VeteranAF frequently ran identical stories by users with different bylines. Several stories on FreedomDaily written by “Liberty Belle” also appear on “VeteranAF” under the byline “Lady Liberty.”

Following Facebook’s takedown, Kolfage’s story drew considerable interest from right-wing media sites including Breitbart and WorldNetDaily. He has since appeared on Fox News to tout Fight4FreeSpeech, a group against “social media censorship.”

Meanwhile, Kolfage’s new crowdfunding effort is thriving. He said if there’s another major conservative cause in the next two months, it will have to be someone else’s problem.

“If there’s another big thing that comes up, somebody else is gonna have to take it....."

https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/founder-viral-fundraiser-trump-s-border-wall-has-fake-news-n950636?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

:blink:

 

 The wall's GoFundMe founder is a documented conspiracy promoter and an extreme right-wing racist who has previously run afoul of Facebook.

Why does this not surprise us?

I can't get over the fact that "Christians" in the Christmas season are giving money to build a Wall to keep out refugees escaping war instead of using that money to feed them.

Christ was very specific about this. Shame on all of you.

With a sizable number of white American Christians: racism, bigotry and xenophobia have always trumped Christianity.

 

When Rev Martin Luther King Jr tried to appeal to the southern Christian ministers to back his non-violent Civil Rights Movement  to kill Jim Crow  and treat black Americans like human beings,

He did so for the record --

you might say for history --

because he knew where they already stood anyway.

trump's vicious and inconsiderate attack on this Gold Star Family was nothing but an example of his racism, bigotry and hatred of people he has no respect for because of their ethnicity and religion.

Each time I try to post a picture on this site, I fail miserably.

I read a story over the weekend that said a church in Tulsa had put a fence around its indoor Nativity display.  On the church's marquee outside, the sign said:  The Holy Family was a Migrant Family

I thought, "Now that's a church I could support"!  👍

Adults Come Under Scrutiny After HS Wrestler Told To Cut His Dreadlocks Or Forfeit

"A week after a white referee told a black high school wrestler that he needed to cut off his dreadlocks or forfeit a match, the referee has been suspended.

But people in town — and on social media — are asking why other adults didn't do more to prevent what happened: A school official cut the student's hair as the crowd watched and the clock ticked down.....

 

A local sports reporter tweeted video of the incident, and outrage followed.

"This is not about hair. This is about race," tweeted the ACLU of New Jersey. "How many different ways will people try to exclude Black people from public life without having to declare their bigotry? We're so sorry this happened to you, Andrew. This was discrimination, and it's not okay."

 

The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association said in a statement that it had suspended Maloney while the incident is investigated by the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights....

wrestler Jordon Burroughs called the incident "sickening."

"I've been wrestling for 25 years, at every level, and I have never once seen a person required to cut their hair during a match," he wrote. "My opinion is that this was a combination of an abuse of power, racism, and just plain negligence. As heroic as it was for Andrew to step up in the midst of what was happening, it shouldn't have got that far. The parents and coaches of the Buena wrestling team should have intervened. This young man should have been protected in this moment...."

Watch: A Portland hotel security guard calls the cops on a black guest who was talking on the phone with his mother in the lobby. https://bit.ly/2TdVspO 

 

This incident is all over the Internet and I first saw it last night.

The alleged racial harassment happened at a DoubleTree Hotel in Portland Oregon. Reportedly others on the internet are citing  problems with this particular Hotel chain which is managed by Hilton.

 Also what it has done on the Internet is to bring out a discussion about treatment of black people in general at hotels in America by staff.

A number of people online are calling for some kind of sensitivity training for hotel staff like what Starbucks did after their unfortunate racist incident.

GOP Rep. Peter King praised ICE's "excellent record" since "only two children" have died in recent memory.

"These are the only two children that have died, certainly in recent memory ... considering what does happen in housing projects ... I think ICE has an excellent record."

Joanne Freeman Retweeted Kyle Griffin

When I lecture, I quote someone from the 1830s who notes that “only” a few people were killed during that year’s election.

My audience usually gasps.

Some day—hopefully even now—people will gasp at the sheer brutality and racism of this statement.

Who would say this about a public school shooting where 2 white American children died?

The Hilton Hotel Corporation has fired the employees who racially discriminated and harassed a black guest.

In fact, they had a black man, who was a guest, thrown out of the because he was in the lobby talking to his mother on a phone. 

The police were called, the black male Hotel guest was told to go up to his room and get his belongings and was escorted out of the hotel by the police.

 

*The Doubletree Hotel employees in Portland who called the police and demanded that the man be thrown out are now themselves out on the street out of a job.

 A hotel manager and a security guard, named Louis and Earl, at this DoubleTree Hotel in Portland Oregon have had their employment terminated by the Hilton Corporation for harassing a black male guest.

 The black guest took a video of the incident which has made the rounds on the internet and media Outlets.

Now that Louis and Earl are famous all over the United States,

they shouldn't have any trouble getting another job. LMREO
