PewDiePie Destroys VICE’s Credibility With One Tweet After They Lie About His “Restricted Mode” Status

The YouTube “Restricted Mode” kerfuffle isn’t kinda stupid to me. Yes, I would prefer that Restricted Mode not exist and everyone be allowed to post and search for whatever they want on YouTube. That is the optimum goal. However, it’s not turned on by default....

Twitter Alternative Gab Is Worth a Second Look If You Slept on It Early

When I first signed on to Gab.ai, I was skeptical. Some features were lacking, the reply system wasn’t very smooth, and there were several other quirks that kept me from using it very often. Things have improved a bit since then, enough that I think...

Earlier today, the notorious “Jew Goldstein” was arrested by FBI agents at his Salisbury, Maryland home for the grave criminal offense of sending a flashing gif image at Kurt Eichenwald hours after he flamed out on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program. I’m sure you’ll be...

Elitist Assholes Like Josh Barro Helped Make Trump Possible

Josh Barro is an elitist scumbag who doesn’t even try to hide it. He can be amusing at times, true. But his Twitter account drips with such condescension and hostility towards anyone who doesn’t live on a coastline that even his bright moments are marred...

SMEAR: When You Search “Racist” on Twitter, President Trump is the Top Result

Here’s a quick hit before go off to play some Breath of the Wild. I’m going to come back and roundup the Rotterdam madness later on tonight, but first let me show you how Twitter has decided to treat its most prominent user, the 45th...

Leslie Jones’ Comments About Fighting Ben Carson Perfectly Illustrate the Social Media Double Standard

I have some thoughts on the Vault 7 leak, but I want to put those into a longer post here in a few minutes. First up for this evening, I wanted to talk about some silly Twitter drama. I know you all are shocked by...

David Duke Suspended From Twitter After David Sherratt Calls Him Out for Alleged #BasedStickMan Incitement

I’ve been so tied up in personal shit that I haven’t gotten to talk about Based Stick Man and the drama surrounding it. A short breakdown goes something like this: There were dueling protests at Berkeley the other day in response to the drama from...

A few days ago we covered the story of Ian Miller, the UC Berkeley staff member, who on the night of the UC Berkeley riots was busy posting on Twitter about how he was allegedly beating up political opposition. Turns out that the school is...

Salty Trump Haters Blame Patriots Super Bowl Win on…WHITE SUPREMACY?!

I’m not a fan of the New England Patriots. It’s fine if you are, I’m just saying that’s not for me. I didn’t feel like President Trump being a fan of the team was a good enough reason to give up my 17-year hatred of...

Teen Vogue’s Lauren Duca Hates White Men

Let’s talk about Lauren Duca, shall we? If you’ll recall, she recently got Martin Shkreli banned from Twitter after he trolled her about accompanying him to the inauguration next Friday. Before we get into the meat of this post, Mr. Shkreli had this to say...

Shkreli Terminated From Twitter After Trolling Teen Vogue Snowflake, Even Though She Stalked Him First

I’m not sure how trolling some snowflake from Teen Vogue is grounds for being summarily dismissed from Twitter, but that’s the world we live in nowadays. Lauren Duca is the woman in question, and the last time I saw her, she was getting rekt by Tucker...

Hack Reporter Accuses Paul Ryan of Using Nazi Iconography, Not Knowing it’s House Symbol

Sometimes, you overreach. And if you’re a member of the mainstream media, that sometimes becomes every damn day. The example I’m about to show you is particularly egregious. Gabrielle Levy writes for US News & World Report. She thought she had Speaker Paul Ryan dead to...
