Tomi Lahren gets in nasty spat with Times columnist: ‘Female empowerment isn’t wearing a vagina on your head’

Published

on

Conservative talking head Tomi Lahren has gotten into a nasty spat with a New York Times columnist who she accused of “lecturing” her on feminism.

The columnist, Jessica Valenti, has written six books on feminism and took on “The Myth of Conservative Feminism,” in a just-published piece.

The piece explains basic concepts of feminism and then pushes back on Conservative women who’ve lashed out at other women for not supporting them. Among the examples were Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying any woman who did not support new CIA chief Gina Haspel because she oversaw torture and then destroyed tapes of that torture and Tomi Lahren, who “said that any woman who doesn’t support Ivanka Trump’s business because of her father’s policies isn’t ‘really a feminist.'”

That line drew a fierce rebuke from Lahren, who said that “female empowerment isn’t wearing a vagina on your head & begging for free things.”

The line about free things was immediately seized upon by Twitter users who mocked Lahren for railing against Obamacare while getting free health care through her mom until she’s 26 because of the law.

In her piece, Valenti says real feminism is doing better than ever—but that it’s important to push back on cynical misuse such as Lahren is fond of.

“Now we have a different task: protecting the movement against conservative appropriation,” she writes. “We’ve come too far to allow the right to water down a well-defined movement for its own cynical gains. Because if feminism means applauding ‘anything a woman does’ — even hurting other women — then it means nothing.”

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.

REVEALED: The government just ‘dramatically’ expanded its investigation of Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”
