    and after SFLs nonsense about the Alitos' flags and refusal to believe that symbols can be adopted and their meaning changed and before he shows up and claims that:

    A. There's nothing racist about White Boy Summer, it's from a Chet Hanks song (Tom Hank's son)

    B. It's no different from Black Girl Magic

    I'll leave this here
    ===============

    In March 2021, Chet Hanks, son of actor Tom Hanks, published a series of social media posts critiquing white men’s attire and behavior, culminating a month later with the release of his song, “White Boy Summer.” A play on Megan Thee Stallion’s 2019 hit song, “Hot Girl Summer,” “White Boy Summer” has taken the internet and meme culture by storm. And while “White Boy Summer” was not initially intended to be hateful, white supremacists have adopted the slogan and leveraged it for their own purposes.

    This is not the first time white supremacists have co-opted an innocuous slogan by layering on exclusionary messaging and using it as a call for action. The phrase “White Boy Summer” or WBS, now in evidence on Telegram, Discord, 4Chan, Gab, Parler, and Twitter, shows extremists using a popular cultural trend to infiltrate mainstream conversations and disguise their racist beliefs as irony or jest. It should be noted that non-extremists also continue to use the phrase, but in largely non-hateful contexts.

    “White Boy Summer” (WBS) has shown up in extremist channels and rhetoric in three distinct ways: general “shirtposting,” racist and misogynistic tropes and explicitly white supremacist propaganda. Many memes on extremist channels have strategically adopted aesthetically pleasing imagery to disguise or distract from their real messages; layers of these seemingly playful images of summer fun can be peeled away to expose messages of hatred and calls to action............

    Several right-wing accounts on X pushed a false narrative Monday that barricades had been installed around the Supreme Court ahead of its ruling regarding former President Donald Trump’s sweeping claims of immunity from criminal prosecution.

    In a since-deleted post, Turning Point USA contributor and serial plagiarist Benny Johnson shared a 22-second video clip of barricades surrounding the high court.

    The clip began to gain traction and the same video soon showed up on several other right-wing accounts. One widely circulated post by @dom_lucre received more than 1 million views as of publication.

    “BREAKING NEWS: A fence is being installed at the U.S. Supreme Court. The last time this happened was prior to the Roe v Wade decision,” the caption read.

    But it didn’t take long for others to correct the reports. NBC News court reporter Daniel Barnes posted a photograph of the court taken Monday night from across the street—showing clearly that no such barrier or fencing had been erected.

    It turns out that the footage was from 2022, after the leak of the conservative-majority court’s draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. The video was recorded on the morning of May 5 by Mitchell Miller, a Capitol Hill reporter for Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP...........

    MyPillow founder Mike Lindell has lost yet another lawyer involved in a civil lawsuit he hopes will avoid him paying out $5m in award money he offered in an election fraud evidence competition.

    Lindell, an avid Donald Trump supporter, launched the ‘Prove Mike Wrong’ challenge in 2021 and promised to pay the huge prize to anyone who could prove alleged evidence of 2020 election fraud false.

    Computer forensics expert Robert Zeidman did just that, but Lindell refused to pay and tried to renege on his offer.

    However, a private arbitration panel in April 2023 ruled that Lindell must pay Zeidman, which the businessman then tried to challenge. A district judge has ruled that the panel’s decision stood.

    Lindell is appealing the February decision by the district judge, Newsweek reported, but has now lost members of his legal team............


     

    Man Who Made Racist Death Threats Against Maxine Waters Messed Around and Found Out​

    In the August 2022 calls, Gaherty threatened to “put a cap” between Waters’ eyes, “cut [her] throat” and “stomp” her. In the November 2022 calls, Gaherty told Waters that she “done [expletive] up” because she reported his earlier threats to police.

    He also said he would go after law enforcement and insisted that “this ain’t no threat. It’s a ... promise.” Gaherty was finally arrested and indicted in August of last year on eight counts: four counts of making threats in interstate communications and four counts of threatening a U.S. official.

     


    So the guy calls CNN fake news, but doesn't watch it and can't say what is fake about it, and instead watches Fox news, which literally just paid out almost $800M because they were literally peddling fake news.

    That's not even the worst thing about that dude. How dare he wear a shirt that desecrates Calvin and Hobbes by swapping out Calvin's face for the face of the abomination that is Trump.
     
    Voters in Temecula, California, have ousted the local school board president who thrust the political body to the forefront of rightwing culture wars seeking to eliminate discussions of race and gender identity from the classroom.

    Joseph Komrosky on Thursday lost a recall vote with 51% of voters favoring his removal.

    Temecula – a predominantly white city of 100,000 residents – was a hotbed of the culture wars that conservative Americans have mounted in an attempt to censure how schools teach racism, gender and American history.


    In June of 2023, Komrosky presided over the Temecula school board’s banning of critical race theory – which examines how racism was embedded into American law – as well as attempts to purge elementary school textbooks of any reference to Harvey Milk, the openly gay politician from San Francisco who supported LGBTQ+ rights before his 1978 assassination……

    You don’t need to know anything about basketball to have heard of Caitlin Clark. She’s a record-breaking superstar who has helped take women’s basketball to new heights. Unfortunately, she’s also been shoved into a starring role in the culture wars.

    An awful lot of conservative men, who don’t ordinarily give a damn about women’s sports, have decided that she provides a very convenient excuse for them to be racist and misogynistic on main. Although, to be fair, they don’t normally need an excuse.

    Here’s the situation: Clark is one of the most fouled players in the WNBA. Some of her fans have claimed that this is the result of a vendetta, that the Indiana Fever rookie is being bullied by players who are jealous of her fame.

    It’s certainly possible some of Clark’s peers don’t like her, but she’s also not the most fouled player. At the time of writing, she was sitting at No 6 with 67 personal fouls drawn, while A’ja Wilson had the top spot with 88.

    It’s also true that basketball is a physical sport and so what might look like aggression to some new fans might simply be business as usual. “I’m just taken aback that the new fans are so shocked,” Candace Buckner, a sports columnist with the Washington Post, told the BBC. “It’s a contact sport. It’s almost as if you were a new opera fan and you were surprised there was music.”

    While some of Clark’s fans are accusing her fellow players of jealousy, a certain group of galaxy-brains has decided that the star is actually a victim of reverse discrimination. Conservative commentator Clay Travis, who is the founder of OutKick, is one of the loudest of these voices.

    “Caitlin Clark is a white heterosexual woman in a Black lesbian league and they resent and are jealous of all of the attention and the [alleged $28m Nike] deal that she got,” Travis said on Fox News earlier this month.

    Internet personality Stew Peters (who has more than 600,000 followers on X) is fond of the same talking point; he’s just added a little more overt racism. “White WNBA player Caitlin Clark is being physically assaulted EVERY GAME by Shaq-looking black lesbians but nobody wants to talk about,” Peters tweeted on Thursday.

    Actually, Mr Peters, your compatriots can’t stop talking about it.

    Sports journalist Jason Whitlock has also chimed in on the matter. “The WNBA for 25-26 years has basically been a traveling lesbian sex cult,” Whitlock told Fox Sports Radio recently. “They’re upset that Caitlin Clark is bringing heterosexual people into their arena.”

    Golly, if I’d known that the WNBA was a “traveling lesbian sex cult”, I would have tried out for the basketball team at university. As it was, I did my best to avoid balls.

    I’ll spare you more hot takes from the Conservative Men Who Are Suddenly Very Interested in Women’s Sports brigade. The upshot of all this messy discourse is this: Clark’s name is being used to push racist, homophobic and misogynistic talking points and being weaponized in the targeted abuse of Black players like Angel Reese…….
