Alt-right catfight: Yiannopoulos vs. Actual Nazis

Got to love it when the enemy starts to tear itself apart.

The Alt-Right is starting a culture war against... well... itself.

From Salon: Alt-right catfight: Daily Stormer wages “Holy Crusade” on Breitbart because Milo Yiannopoulos is “part-Jewish”

The alt-right — the online community of inflammatory white nationalists which your parents think Hillary Clinton invented last month — is beginning to cannibalize itself, as The Daily Stormer declared a “Holy Crusade” against “the single greatest threat our movement has at this time”: Breitbart tech editor and chief troll Milo Yiannopoulos.

“We are going to invade Milo’s events and confront him,” Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin proposes before laying out a three-part plan for said confrontations. “He is taking our brand, our symbols, and turning them against us for a neocon-Jew conservative agenda.”

“His entire public image is based on the idea that he can’t be rattled, and that he is offended by nothing, has no real beliefs. This is where you have to hit him. Force him into being unable to do something snarky,” Anglin continues. “He will also be in a state of constant fear when he knows that real Nazis are going to show-up at every show and confront him. That there is nowhere to run.”

Time to get some popcorn and watch the Alt-Right tear itself a couple of new holes! Where's the schadenfreude smiley?

Trump is not the GOP candidate, he is the Capitalist candidate

The GOP is only holding their nose to vote for Trump because he beat all their best (snicker) and brightest (snerk!) in the primaries, and they fear what another 4-8 years of Democratic leadership could do to their brand. Trump's ideas are in many cases against the GOP platform, at least those that he hasn't been convinced to pivot on just to look respectable to the rank-and-file.

But through all of his talk and the investigations about his business dealings and corporate ties, it's become 100% clear. He is the poster child and face of unfettered capitalism in the USA. He proudly states that his paying no taxes is "smart business" despite the damage it does to the social contract and the middle class that has to subsidize his business ventures. He proudly states that he'll stiff contractors if they don't do good enough work, despite the fact that he gets to decide that on a whim, it destroys small businesses looking for a leg up (such as the piano retailer in another thread), and if the stiffee decides to (and can afford to) pursue legal recourse, he can leverage the bankruptcy laws to avoid payment and lose another small shell company.

He is the candidate of Profits At All Costs. He is the candidate of Profits Over People. He is the candidate of Money Equals Power. He has BOUGHT the GOP, and he's trying to buy democracy itself. He has unapologetically announced that he's purchased the favour of politicians.

The only people he wants to make America "great" for are himself, his family, and people just like him.

From Twitter: I will GORGE myself on Skittles

I found this one on Twitter yesterday, and it's probably the most to-the-point send-up of the Skittles absurdity I've read, yet.

All Prince Edward Island schools evacuated over potential threat

From the Globe and Mail: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/all-prince-edward-island-schools-evacuated-over-potential-threat/article31982369/

From the article:

More than 19,000 students are being evacuated from all public schools on Prince Edward Island because of what police say is a “potential threat.”

RCMP say staff are taking students at more than 60 English and French schools to safe locations outside the schools, where buses are meeting them.

Sgt. Bailey said an anonymous fax from an unknown person was received by police. The fax warned of bombs planted in area schools. Police in turn warned schools across the province, and later searched all schools but found nothing.

"There hasn't been a suspect identified," he said.

Authorities evacuated and searched schools as a precaution, Sgt. Bailey said, but have found nothing to substantiate any threat.

School officials in PE.I. say they hope to resume scheduled classes tomorrow.

Still a developing story, but it's looking like an empty threat thus far. No explosive devices have been found yet, but searches are still taking place.
