    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...........

    They post those images online, but in reality they look like this:

    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............
