The World According To The Right-Wing Media

mediamattersforamerica:

When Missouri citizens protest over the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager, they’re a “lynch mob”…

…but when armed militia members protest over a cattle rancher having to pay fees for grazing on government land, they’re "Freedom Riders.”

Fucking thank you. I hate the media.

Loretta Lynch, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, unveiled grand jury indictment against Grimm that covered a slew of criminal charges. They included mail and wire fraud, filing false tax returns, health care fraud, hiring undocumented workers, perjury and obstruction.
She also held a scathing press conference denouncing the one-time FBI agent and Marine.
“In 2007, Michael Grimm - a former Marine, former FBI agent who knew what what fraud looked like, accountant, and attorney - was poised for success as a small business owner.” Lynch said at her press conference in Brooklyn. “Instead, as alleged, Grimm made the choice on upholding the law to breaking it. In doing so, he turned his back on every oath he ever took.”

Rep. Grimm represents Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn. Keep it classy, New York.

"If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it."

Former GOP presidential candidate and conservative blowhard MIKE HUCKABEE, in a speech to the Republican National Committee in Washington on Thursday.

"Uncle Sugar" thinks Democrats think women "cannot control their libido."

Christ almighty.

(via The Washington Post)

Just fucking wow. Yes, we want birth control every month because our libidos are completely out of control (slut shaming, anyone?) and because we can’t keep our rascally reproductive system in order. It’s not because we want to avoid unwanted and unmanageable pregnancy, or regulate menstrual cycles, or deal with hormonal acne, or treat PMDD, or PCOS, or just have the peace of mind that we’re taking responsibility for our sexual activities and sexual health.

No, it’s because our reproductive system has a mind of it’s own and it just. can’t. be. tamed. 

I am so done with Republicans.

World’s youngest mayor: 15-year-old teenage girl in Palestine
A 15-year-old Palestinian girl took office as the mayor of a West Bank town and became the youngest person in the world to occupy this position.As part of an initiative to empower youth and involve them in the decision-making process, Bashaer Othman will be the mayor of the town of Allar in the city of Tulkarm in the northwestern West Bank for two months.Othman is in charge of all matters related to the municipality of Allar and which include supervising employees and signing all official documents with the exception of financial ones.

Othman is working under the supervision of elected mayor Sufian Shadid who expressed his enthusiasm for the teengar’s appointment as a step towards supporting youth.“There are many ways of supporting youth other than financial means. First, we should make sure we remove obstacles that might stand in their way and with determination and perseverance we can do so,” he said. For Othman, the new position constitutes a major challenge that she is hoping she can be up to.“I want to go through this experience in order to be able to share it with other youth so that they can be prepared for running state institutions in the future,” she said.
