That one stuck out the most because I found an interesting video breakdown of BLM:

The US was already run by billionaires - or to be precise a super rich elite - Trump's election cuts out some political middlemen and career politicians, but that's about it. You have a different type of figurehead, that's all.

I find the demonstrations in the UK against his state visit and immigration ban confusing. The countries he has banned have almost all been targets of "western [military] intervention". I hope these same demonstrators and petition signers also demonstrated and signed petitions against visits by Obama and Bush jnr when they actually bombed some of those countries.

Well, they demonstrated against visits by the president of China and the Pope, so they wouldn't want to discriminate.

So, Steven G, now that you have linked such Infowars whackos as Paul Watson to pawn conspiracy tin-foil hatters off as creditable journalism will we be hearing about reptilians next?

There were some demonstrations, but nothing like the Twitter storm that's been raised over Trump. I don't recall a massive online petition against Shih Jin Ping's visit. Yet this was a man complicit in the torture and murder of many of his fellow countrymen, which is a lot worse than merely saying that torture sometimes works.

I'm no monarchist but I have a personal liking for the Queen. She's a good, decent woman, and I hated having to watch her humiliation in being forced to smile and be polite to this tyrant. They weren't polite to her by the way. She admitted afterwards (when she thought she was off-mic) that they had been very rude to her. At least Trump will be super-polite. He'll probably fawn on her.

And now some multi-billion $ corporations are also against the immigration ban.

(Of course this has nothing at all to do with the likes of Amazon relying heavily on cheap, expendable immigrant labour, on zero hours contracts, to run it's distribution centres...).

The link in question is to a twitter account that contains an embedded video of people stating what it is that want: To kill white people and take their stuff. It is not being reported to you by the leftist main stream media b/c it does not fit with their agenda.

So, I guess in your insular, leftist cozy little world where your narrative can never be challenged b/c it violates your safe space (and therefore all said challengers should be shot in the head at point blank range, or at least be made to sit in the corner and shut up) and the Hil has never done even one questionable thing in her life, this "pawn conspiracy tin-foil hatters" reporter must have gone out, paid a bunch of people to have a fake protest and gave them a script of what to say so that he could embed it in to a feed that most people will never see b/c they can't handle the truth?

BTW, the reptiles are already here. Washington, the MSM and the military/industrial complex are all infested with them.

And, once again, in what I guess will become my mantra; hhhhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmm not one rebuttal of the facts, just somebody crying about a source.

While we are focusing on censorship on the right, the left are no angels either - Milo addresses the incident at UC Berkley:

Actually, Steven G, I think that it is you that is insular and predisposed to both seeking that which feeds your prejudice and sorting everything into Right and Left so it's simple and offhand to dismiss anything labelled Left. In my teen years to early 20s I was an Ayn Rand devotee and signed on as usher for local symposiums for The Objectivist. I met her and had private talks with Ms Rand. To this day I still prefer Laissez Faire Capitalism. However I also attended the 1963 March on Washington... you know... the "I Have a Dream" MLK jr. one, and several more. I have great confidence that civilizations do require some social programs to encourage even the lowest to reach as high as they can. I abhor violence and frauds and think the government which governs least governs best.. So you see it is not so simple as to be labelled Right or Left. The world is not so simple as Black and White and neither are humans.

The reason nobody has oppose your "facts" is because they are FUD pure and simple, mere pumped up inflammatory puffery with substance less than cotton candy.

The White House has said a raid in Yemen on an al-Qaeda stronghold that likely killed civilians was a "very thought-out process".
Sure, I guess nobody thought there might be innocents caught up - but hey thats war right? A well thought out process would have not lead to this in the first place, but I guess I am just naive.
