BYU-Idaho warns its young men against masturbation in earnest war-themed video

Published

on

A motivational video released by Brigham Young University–Idaho has garnered attention online for urging students to identify friends they think are masturbating too much to religious officials, and comparing the gesture to rescuing a fellow soldier during war.

“If you need to, talk to your bishop,” school president Kim B. Clark says in the video, “Wounded On The Battlefield,” which was released last month. “Tell someone who can do something that you have a friend in trouble.”

The video opens with footage of a young man, who Clark says is “spiritually wounded on the battlefield of the Great War,” alone in a darkened room because of an addiction to pornography, while his roommate leaves, apparently feeling unable to help. Clark does not identify the “Great War” in question.

Suddenly, the scene shifts to a battlefield, with the porn-addled young man trapped in the crossfire and the roommate torn between helping him and staying behind safe cover.

“In our modern society, the enemy has spread fear of getting involved when someone’s in trouble, and has fostered a social stigma against people who speak up in the face of evil,” Clark warns over ominous music. “The enemy whispers, ‘Don’t get involved.'”

Of course, the roommate goes to his fallen friend’s (metaphorical) rescue, delivering him to what seems to be a church official before they (and several young female churchgoers) celebrate his return to “normalcy.”

Comments have been disabled on the video’s YouTube page, but reviews elsewhere describe it as “awkward and creepy,” and “bizarre.”

Watch the school’s treatise against excessive masturbation, as posted online last month, below.

‘I’ve had it!’ MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch goes on epic rant telling white people ‘if you vote for Trump — you own it’

Published

In an epic rant on MSNBC Wednesday, political commentator Donny Deutsch went off telling white people that they need to wake up and prove they're not racists.

"Enough is enough!" he began, looking directly into the camera. "I want to talk to the white people out there, okay. I want to talk to wealthy white people because I’ve had it. I’ve had discussions, when I talk to friends, people I know, [who say] 'It’s good for the economy. It’s good for the economy.' No, it's time."

He explained that if someone is working-class and they believe Trump will get them a job, they at least have an excuse.

Nicolle Wallace explains Trump’s racist attacks are covering his cozy relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and Michael Cohen scandal

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace began her Wednesday show saying that President Donald Trump has made it official by making his brand one of "racism." But it prompted her to wonder if his racist attacks against four congresswomen of color could be more about deflecting from other scandals.

Wednesday morning, MSNBC released a video of Trump partying with alleged child molester and rapist Jeffrey Epstein. Trump is seen groping women and slapping their posterior. The first round of Epstein's alleged crimes were downgraded by Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and he was given 13 months in a county jail for just 8 hours, six days a week.

WATCH: Kevin McCarthy has a day-after meltdown about ‘decorum’ because Pelosi called Trump racist

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) got visibly angry on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called President Donald Trump's attacks on four Democratic congresswomen racist one day before.

In denouncing the speaker, McCarthy bitterly complained that the Democrats have shown a disregard for "decorum" when they called out Trump for being racist.

"Yesterday, we did a resolution attacking the president, but we couldn’t even get to that because, Madame Speaker, we couldn’t even have decorum in this body!" he said. "We set a record that we’ve never seen before based upon a Speaker’s actions! The very first page in Thomas Jefferson’s manual talks about decorum, but not only did this body try to change the rules after the fact, they don’t think everybody’s equal, Madame Speaker, because if your words get taken down, you don’t have a right to speak that day but, no, we should change that!"
