There were at least three instances of gun violence on June 14

Published

on

While the news cycle remains dominated by the Virginia baseball field shooting that targeted GOP congresspeople, two other major gun violence incidents make June 14 one of the more violent days in recent history.

A few hours after James Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican congresspeople and their staffs in Alexandria, Virginia, a gunman in San Francisco shot and killed three people and himself while wounding two others at a UPS factory.

Three hours later, gunfire erupted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, injuring one.

The Alexandria shooting resulted in a fierce partisan gun control debate between Democrats and Republicans as lawmakers and pundits took to Twitter to express their concerns. The debate ended up playing out in real time as two more shootings occurred.

The shootings also took place two days after the year anniversary of the Orlando Pulse shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida last summer.

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

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.
