Feminist-bashing alt-right activist upset to learn her movement is full of angry misogynistic men

Published

on

“Ethno-nationalist” and anti-feminist YouTube vlogger Tara McCarthy took to Twitter to vent about the men in the alt-right movement — and appeared to come to the realization that they are, in fact, misogynists.

First reported by Salon, McCarthy’s epiphany came amid targeted harassment by trolls that appear to be a part of the alt-right’s Internet cabal after another right-wing female pundit spoke out about not wanting to have children or get married yet at age 22.

“Women in the Alt Right are constantly harassed by low status anonymous trolls trying to put us in our place,” the British vlogger wrote in a now-deleted string of tweets. “Women of all ages, who do or don’t have children, are harassed for various ‘reasons’. The ultimate goal seems to be to bully us off the internet.”

As Right Wing Watch noted, 22-year-old conservative activist Lauren Southern, best known for her expedition to the Mediterranean to try to block Tunisian refugees from entering Italy, explained in a video why she hasn’t yet married or had children despite promoting “traditionalist” values.

It appears that after trolls began going after Southern for not wanting to start having babies in her early 20’s, McCarthy also spoke out on Twitter (prior to locking her account down) about attacks she’d gotten from men who share her beliefs because despite being married, she has not yet had children.

“Guys, I’m not saying I can’t take any trolling or harassment on the internet, *obviously* I can,” McCarthy wrote in another tweet. “I’ve probably had more of it than most of you will see in a lifetime, and I’m still here. Not going anywhere. I’m not stating the above solely for my own personal benefit.”

As some on Twitter have pointed out since McCarthy’s tweets and subsequent account lockdown, the ethno-nationalist vlogger’s viewpoints are bizarre given that she is a quarter Indian.

“Tara McCarthy’s politics are entirely antithetical to her identity,” one user noted. “She’s female, mixed race and english, but wants the US to become a white ethnostate and is sad that fascists aren’t woke and feminist enough.”

‘Bulletproof from a pardon’: Fox News analyst says judge in Stone case just made things tough for Trump

Published

on

In the wake of Roger Stone's sentencing of 3.5 years in prison this Thursday, Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano posited that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson's choice to go along with Attorney General Bill Barr's sentencing recommendation could have been an effort to pardon-proof the sentence from President Trump.

"[Jackson's] trying to make this bulletproof from a pardon," Napolitano said. "Because she went along exactly with what [Barr] requested."

Adam Schiff sends signal that a Roger Stone pardon would be another impeachable offense

Published

on

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the longtime Republican operative to 40 months in prison, saying Stone had lied to Congress and threatened a witness to cover up possible wrongdoing by President Donald Trump -- and Schiff sent a warning against a pardon.

"Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness," Schiff tweeted.

Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson -- whose language echoed the lawmaker's "corrupt scheme and cover-up" indictment during the Senate trial.

WATCH: Roger Stone greeted with ‘Lock Him Up!’ chants after getting sentenced to 40 months

Published

Trump ally Roger Stone frequently led chants of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign -- but on Thursday, the table decisively turned.

After Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice, a crowd of people greeted the right-wing dirty trickster by chanting, "Lock him up!" outside the courthouse.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.

Watch the video below.
