Ben Carson trolled by Wikipedia pranksters linking him to pedophilia advocacy website

Published

on

Republican presidential contender Ben Carson, who has made disparaging remarks about gays and same-sex marriage, found himself on the receiving end of retribution after pranksters linked a pedophilia website to his Wikipedia page.

During a Fox News appearance, the retired neurosurgeon equated gays with pedophiles and people who practice bestiality, saying, “Marriage is between a man and a woman. No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition.”

On Wednesday, a Google search of Carson’s name returned the normal Wikipedia link, but with NAMBLA listed at the first suggestion after his name.

The gaming of search results is reminiscent of former Senator Rick Santorum’s name being associated to an anal sex byproduct following similar comments about gays in 2003.

In an interview with Breitbart News, Carson campaign communications director Doug Watts said, “It looks like the trolls are out in force,” before adding, “We’ve complained to Google and filled out requests to take it down that have been ignored.”

‘Where’s Melania?’ The View hosts blister first lady for ignoring ‘bully-in-chief’ Trump’s attack on Greta Thunberg

Published

A discussion on Donald Trump's bitter Twitter attack on 16-year-old environmentalist Greta Thunberg, after she aced him out of Time Magazine's Person of the Year, caught the attention of the panelists on The View, who hammered both the president and the first lady after they both protested the mention of their teen son Barron just weeks ago.

After co-host Joy Behar read the president's tweet from Thursday morning where he proclaimed, "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" she called the president out for being jealous of the teen for getting the Time magazine cover he so desperately wanted.

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) probably isn't the best person to make an argument against driving under the influence given his own arrests. Even Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA) cautioned against "the pot calling the kettle black," during the Thursday House Judiciary Committee hearing.

Gaetz was arrested for a DUI in 2008 on suspicion of a DUI after he refused a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test. Just two years later he was elected to the Florida state legislature and by 2016 he was in Congress.
