PM Benjamin Netanyahu Refuses To Commit To LGBT Rights In First Meeting With Activists In 10 years

The Times of Israel reports:

Leaders of Israel’s LGBT community blasted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday after the Likud leader told them during a meeting that coalition pressures prevented him from promising to promote equal rights.

In a rare meeting with activists at his residence in Jerusalem, the prime minister said opposition from religious and ultra-Orthodox parties blocked him from meeting their demands. It was the first time in 10 years that Netanyahu had met with LGBT activists.

Arutz Sheva reports:

“The prime minister refused to commit himself to promoting equality of rights as a condition for the establishment of the coalition and expressed concern about the opposition of the religious factions in any coalition that will be established. However, he declared that the education portfolio would remain in the hands of the Likud and not pass it on to the conservative parties,” the representatives said in a statement following the meeting.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

Labor’s gay members’ group said “Netanyahu embraces the darkest and most inciting factors in Israeli society with one hand and reaches out his other hand to the leaders of the gay community’s struggle. This meeting is political spin…and only a fig leaf by a man who voted against gay rights for 10 years. The community is sick of the Likud disrespecting its rights.”

QAnon accuse... uh... Kate Bush of Murder

QAnon Idiots Finally Go Too Far, Accuse Kate Bush Of Murder

Every day, QAnon "patriots" from across the globe post stupid ass shit on their special Voat message board. They accuse various people of being pedophiles, write letters to Trump (whom they apparently believe reads their message board every day and pays close attention to them), are sad about how bad white people have it, and talk about how amazing it is going to be once everyone realizes they have actually been right about everything all along.

But now they have gone too far. In a post I clocked this morning, one "baker" (as they call themselves) claims that beloved music icon (and primary inspiration for my current hair situation) Kate Bush is a MURDERER, and that her 1993 video for "The Red Shoes" is in fact "a symbolic reenactment of her initiation kill."

The user posting the video lays out his evidence.

1:10 - Gets drugged to help cope with it.
1:38 - Hesitates. It's so fucked up, can she really do this?
1:48 - Seduced by power and opportunity, as if under a spell.
1:55 - Hesitates again. Initiator has been patient and encouraging - everyone's first time is difficult.
2:00 - Finds her determination and enthusiastically breaks through the psychological barrier.
2:05-2:20 - He's doing the kill, she's swimming in blood.
2:40 - Symbolic of dancing in blood.
3:00 - Dancing on the graves of the consumed.
Wow, they've really thought this one through!

Other commenters on the site agreed that the video was an obvious murder confession, steaming that "They love to rub our faces in it, don't they?"


If you're wondering why on earth this particular video was a target, it is because red shoes are A THING for the QAnon people.

They believe that people wear red shoes in order to surreptitiously brag about the fact that they are way into sacrificing children to Satan and then eating them -- they have to wear red shoes when they do this, because otherwise the blood will stain their shoes and it will be a whole mess! Sometimes, they think, the shoes are literally " target="_blank">made from the skin of said children.

I wish I were joking, but I'm not. This is what they believe. The idea mostly gained traction last August when Q "dropped" a thing about Bill Maher wearing them, and now every time they see someone wearing red shoes they're all, "Look at that jerk just going around blatantly advertising that they love killing and eating children!"

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's solution for the opioid epidemic...

If we want to end the opioid epidemic, we must work to address the root causes of abuse. That’s why @SenCoryGardner and I introduced legislation to limit opioid prescriptions for acute pain to 7 days. Because no one needs a month’s supply for a wisdom tooth extraction.


Take that you chronic pain sufferers!!!!

Dean Cain Knocked Around on Twitter for Saying He'd Knock a Teen Protester 'Unconscious'

Superman actor Dean Cain appears to be Pro-Fascist:

The teen protester smacked an egg against the head of an Australian Senator criticized after he blamed Muslims for the New Zealand mass shootings that have left 50 dead.

Dean Cain may have achieved fame by beating up bad guys as Superman on television, but he achieved a different sort of fame on Sunday for saying he'd beat up on a teenage protester.

The former star of "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" inserted himself into a story coming out of New Zealand in the wake of the tragic shootings there late last week. His comments came in response to a tweet from Aussie journalist Deborah Knight, lamenting a politician attacking the teen after he was egged.

Cain's response to the story was twofold. First, he tweeted, "I would have knocked that kid cold." In another response, Cain added, "He would have been unconscious if it were up to me."
