Sarah Palin uses Marine vet who suffered PTSD in Iraq to bash college students

Published

on

Sarah Palin posted a meme Monday morning on her Facebook page suggesting that only combat veterans deserved free college tuition.

The former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice-presidential candidate posted the meme, which contrasts a group of protesters calling for free tuition and a young Marine smoking a cigarette, on her personal social media page.

“Want free college tuition,… ?” the caption reads. “Earn it.”

The photo of demonstrators came from a 2013 protest at Cooper Union for the Advancement for Science and Art, which had ended its 155-year tradition of free tuition to the New York City-based college.

James Blake Miller gained famed as the “Marlboro man” after his photo was published in 2004 by the Los Angeles Times following the Second Battle of Fallujah.

Miller, now 32, received a medical discharge from the Marine Corps in 2005 after blacking out while assisting in Hurricane Katrina recovery due to post-traumatic stress issues related to his combat experience in Iraq.

The meme shared by Palin has circulated for years on right-wing websites and social media pages.

Palin made news last week for her visit to the Oval Office to meet President Donald Trump, along with rock performers Ted Nugent and Kid Rock.

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
