Alabama restaurant closing so they won’t have to serve ‘racist’ fans of Fox News ‘asshat’ Brian Kilmeade

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade

In a Facebook post, the owner of a Birmingham, Alabama restaurant said she would rather close and lose business than serve attendees coming to see “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade when he makes an appearance at a theater close by.

According to AL.com, Adeeba Khan, owner of the Shu Shop located near the Lyric Theater where Kilmeade will host a live show, said she wants no part of his crowd.

“We will be closed on Saturday, August 10,” Khan wrote. “‘Why?’ You ask. It is because our neighbors at the Lyric have chosen to host an event that is anti-immigrant, hostile towards brown people, pro-wall, and that goes against what we believe in at Shu Shop. As a decent human, first and foremost, a person of color, a woman, a second generation immigrant of Pakistani decent, and a Birmingham native, I refuse to contribute to anyone’s hateful bullsh*t.”

She added, “The hosting of Brian Killmeade flies in the face of everything that MY BIRMINGHAM is about- love, acceptance, knowledge, and RESPECT. It’s taken me a very long time to feel like any place was my home. Downtown Birmingham has been a vacant space that myself, my friends, my colleagues, my FAMILY has tried relentlessly to make better because OUR city is better. Because we believe in something better for ourselves.”

“As a woman from Birmingham who got the chance to finally not feel like the outsider, who was afforded the opportunity to serve her community, who wants better for and of everyone around her, I take this blatant racist bullsh*t as a personal affront. I will not be ok with hosting this asshat in my town.
In our town.
I will not be ok with this level of disrespect.
This is NOT my Birmingham. Nor should it be yours,” she concluded.

2020 Election

Younger voters are most likely to have their absentee ballots rejected — here’s why

Published

on

As half or more of the 2020 presidential election's votes will be cast on mailed-out ballots, a new study on why absentee ballots were rejected in three urban California counties in 2018 reveals why young voters' ballots were rejected at triple the rate of all voters.

Nationally, it is well known that absentee ballots arriving after state deadlines, problems with a voter's signature on the return envelope not matching their voter registration, or a missing signature account for more than half of all rejected ballots, as the latest federal statistics affirm. But a new California Voter Foundation (CVF) study reveals the most likely causes behind those errors, especially for young voters.

HHS secretary says all ‘Warp Speed’ vaccines will have ‘liability protection’ from lawsuits

Published

on

Pharmaceutical companies that produce COVID-19 vaccines through the federal government's "Warp Speed" program will automatically have liability protection, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar said on Monday.

Azar was asked about the progress of COVID-19 vaccine trials during an interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney.

"We now have three vaccines in phase three clinical trials here in the United States, which is just unprecedented -- the speed that we have been able to go given President Trump's support of Operation Warp Speed," Azar explained. "These are some of the largest clinical trials of vaccines in history."

Here’s how Donald Trump is actually the one defunding police departments

Published

on

President Donald Trump began a campaign of "law and order" after witnessing protests in cities where unarmed Black Americans were killed or nearly killed by police officers. The Black Lives Matter movement has advocated for years that changes should be made to police departments to fund people like mental health experts and social workers who can go with officers to calls in which someone is having a mental health crisis. That message then evolved into a message of "defund the police," specifically involving police departments that simply need to be cleaned out following years of corruption.
