Watch: Trans Activist Attacks 60-Year-Old Woman for Filming Protest

Maria MacLachlan, a 60-year-old woman from the UK was violently attacked by a male trans activist as she was filming a protest.

According to the Daily Wire, the attack took place at a relocated event on Wednesday:

A scheduled forum on gender and the 2004 Gender Recognition Act set to take place Wednesday night was initially cancelled due to “safety reasons,” according to New Cross Learning, the host of the event. A number of trans activists posted threats against “TERFs” (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists) online before the forum.

The discussion, which included guest speakers Miranda Yardley, a writer who identifies as transsexual, and Dr. Julia Long, a lesbian feminist, was eventually relocated but was cut short due to the protest outside the event, where MacLachlan was assaulted.

As you can see in the video below, a male trans activist in camo first attempts to make a grab at MacLachlan’s camera. A scuffle breaks out over the device, which is seized from the woman and thrown to to the ground.

As the scuffle continues, the trans activist in camo runs over and begins to throw punches, striking the 60-year-old woman repeatedly.

The man in the video who was throwing the sissiest punches ever seen is likely Tara Flik Wood, who had posted earlier that he was looking to “f**k some terfs up.”

MacLachlan told the Daily Wire that the trans activists were accusing the feminists of attacking them before they struck. MacLachlan was trying to get answers about who was attacking them to no avail before she was struck herself.

“Nobody was attacking anybody but they were obviously trying to intimidate us,” she said. “As I was filming I asked them, ‘Who’s attacking?’ They had no answer of course, they just increased their volume, so I asked again and again and then suddenly some kid in a hoodie ran past me and tried to knock the camera out of my hand but it was attached to a loop round my wrist so he came back at me, I think trying to get my camera. I was determined not to let him get my camera and I was also terrified that my glasses were going to get broken because then I wouldn’t be able to see. I don’t remember much else except that somehow I ended up on the ground and it felt like a few of them were punching and kicking me and it seemed to last forever but I guess it was just a few seconds.”

MacLachlan walked away with some bruising to her face.

Why Are We Still Giving Billions of Taxpayer Dollars to Colleges That Spit On American Values?

Ben Shapiro, the most popular conservative commentator is set to give a speech at Berkeley, California, tomorrow, and the mainstream media outlets would have you think a hurricane is about to wipe the town out.

The LA Times told its readers that Berkeley is “bracing” for Shapiro’s speech on Thursday. At first I thought the headline was a bit sensationalist, and an over the top commentary about Shapiro’s penchant for riling up leftist crowds whenever he stands behind a podium.

But then I began thinking that the LA Times used accurate phrasing. Berkeley really was bracing for a core shaking impact similar to what the crew of the USS Enterprise experiences every time a Klingon sneezes at it.

This bracing is necessary because The University of California at Berkeley is a rat’s nest of radical leftist groups that have no problem destroying property, and violently attacking people that they suspect of being guilty of wrong-think. The very threat of Shapiro’s appearance has set off a chain reaction that has good chance of ending with violent mobs doing what violent mobs do.

We already saw what happened when Milo Yiannopolous was going to show up. If you need a reminder, watch this short news report below.

Likewise, Ann Coulter had to withdraw her scheduled speech at Berkeley in April due to threats of violence. If the riot caused by Yiannopolous was any indication, these threats were not idle.

But Shaprio seems to have no intention of withdrawing his scheduled speech regardless of threats. Furthermore, it was announced that Coulter and Yiannoplous will be returning to participate in Berkeley’s “free speech week” with none other than Steve Bannon in tow.

I don’t know if insurance companies sell “riot insurance,” but I suggest Berkeley residents look into it.

This lunacy isn’t just contained to Berkeley either. SJW students at Evergreen State College basically held the school’s president hostage, patrolled the college with baseball bats and batons, and forced a professor to hold class off campus for his own safety after he refused to take part in racial segregation.

I could go on, but you’ve likely seen consistent news reports from various institutions of higher learning yourself. This college refuses to fly the American flag because Trump is President. That university is caving to student demands for racial segregation. It never ends.

What should really bother us all is that we are paying for all of this to happen. Not in terms of our country suffering from this idiocy — though we are — I mean we’re literally paying for it.

According to the American Institute for Research, taxpayers shell out between $8,000 to $100,000 in subsidies for every person that walks across the stage with a bachelors degree. Fox News reported that many private ivy league schools rake in tens of billions in taxpayer dollars. Far more than student tuition brings in.

According to Berkeley, it received well over half a billion dollars alone from state and federal government sources.

The amount of money we throw at colleges is gross enough, but the fact that these colleges are using that money to raise soldiers against the very rights they enjoy is beyond ridiculous.

On top of that, it’s useless. Today’s college graduates leave with degrees that — even if not in a completely useless field like gender studies — do not help them obtain careers.

College grads today, with all their education, are behind what their parents were at their age. They work minimum wage jobs as they wait for the same job everyone else is going for to open up. To make it worse, they’re drowning in student debt.

Americans are currently paying to send kids to universities and colleges that teach them to hate the taxpayers, become fragile victims, and turn into violent radicals. All this in the pretense of handing them a degree that will help them get jobs, but in truth, aren’t worth the paper the degrees are printed on.

So why are we still shelling out billions of dollars our country desperately needs — I’ll remind you we just topped $20 trillion in debt and are outspending our GDP — to allow guilty institutions to create a useless workforce that believes this country and its residents to be evil? Why are we giving money to places that teach, encourage, or enable the use violence to trample on people’s constitutional rights?

If a private college or university wishes to teach that kind of garbage, then fine, just do it without reaching into my wallet. The market (i.e. the American people) can decide whether or not that kind of “education” is worth the cash. If the financial situation of the universities who have embraced social justice, and anti-constitutionalism are any indication, Americans are already showing they’re clearly not interested.

Republican Congressman Ready to Bring the Hammer Down on Colleges Restricting Free Speech

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is not one to sit back and allow ideological silencing to happen, especially if that silencing is being done through the violent means often exhibited at campuses like the University of California, Berkeley.

According to the DailyWire, Jordan issued a very clear warning to colleges who wish to prevent people like conservative commentator Ben Shapiro from speaking on campus.

Colleges have historically been that place where you make your best argument, have a full and robust debate, and let ideas flow. But now we often find that if you’re libertarian or conservative and are invited to speak on campus, you later get disinvited. If they’re allowed to speak at all, conservatives and libertarians get shouted down or in some cases actual riots break out. If public colleges and universities continue to allow this to occur, Congress may have to get involved.

To what extent congress would get involved isn’t clear, but what we do know is that many of these colleges get federal funding. Calls for defunding colleges that silence others through both violent and non-violent means have been made in the past. Politicians have even moved to defund colleges like Evergreen State College in Washington, who kidnapped the colleges President, and threatened other students with violence.

Shapiro is set to speak at Berkeley’s campus Thursday. To “brace” — the LA Times words, not mine — for his expression of wrong-think, the university is providing free counseling, and considerably upping its police presence.

The last time someone was to speak at Berkeley that the campus leftists didn’t like, a riot was started that ended with destruction of property, violent attacks, and hospitalizations. Milo Yiannopolous, the intended speaker, was forced to withdraw for his own safety, as innocent bystanders were being attacked by the worked up mob.

Fast forward to April, and another battle occurred in Berkeley that involved Antifa groups facing Trump supporters. Physical violence erupted in the street, with Antifa eventually losing to the Trump supporters and forced to retreat.

In both situations, police stood down and allowed the violence to happen. For Shapiro’s sake, and the safety of those around him, pray security remains tight, and holds fast should the violent mob rear its ugly head again.

South Park Is Returning, and Their First Target Is Tiki Torch Bearing White Supremacists

When the world gets crazy, South Park usually makes good sense of it through its satirical wit and no holds barred comedy, and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have a lot to talk about for their 21st season.

And first up on the chopping block is the tiki torch carrying, Confederate flag waving mob seen in Charlotesville according to the trailer for the first episode titled “White People Renovating Houses.”

“Protestors armed with tiki torches and confederate flags take to the streets of South Park. Randy comes to grips with what it means to be white in today’s society,” reads the episode’s description.

A screenshot of the first episode was leaked by none other than country music star Brad Paisley.

It’s safe to say that judging from the trailer, political commentary will absolutely not be off the table, despite the fact that Stone and Parker said they’d be trying to stay away from too much Trump commentary in the coming season.

While Trump’s South Park counterpart, Mr. Garrison, will no doubt be making appearances, Stone and Parker — both open libertarians — believed that they would just become just like other media outlets with all the lampooning they would be doing of a guy who is already something close to a cartoon character.

“We fell into the same trap that ‘Saturday Night Live’ fell into, where it was like, Dude, we’re just becoming CNN now. We’re becoming: ‘Tune in to see what we’re going to say about Trump.’ Matt and I hated it but we got stuck in it somehow,” Parker told the LA Times in June.

“We probably could put up billboards — “Look what we’re going to do to Trump next week!” — and get crazy ratings. But I just don’t care,” added Parker.

Regardless of their decision to lay off Trump, between neo-Nazis, Antifa, hurricanes, Google censorship, etc, South Park is in a target-rich environment, and millions can’t wait to see what kind of damage they once again do to the people who take themselves way to seriously.

Totally Self-Aware Hillary Clinton Compares Herself to the Game of Thrones’ Mad Queen

And the award for the most un-self-aware person on the planet once again goes to failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for comparing herself to the most evil woman in pop-culture.

Breitbart White House corespondent Charlie Spiering got a hold of Clinton’s new book “What Happened,” and noticed a peculiar passage where the hapless Democrat paints herself as a victim of mean things chanted at her by Trump supporters such as “guilty.”

The horror.

But as she was playing her sad violin, she compared herself to Game of Thrones villainess Cersei Lannister, who (spoiler alert) has lied, cheated, and killed her way to the Iron Throne.

The scene Clinton is referring to is when Cersei was stripped naked, and forced to walk through the city of King’s Landing in order to atone for her crimes. As she did, the citizens — who really hate her — cursed her, threw food and…other things at her, and mocked her relentlessly. All the while, a member of the land’s church walked behind her with a bell, repeating “shame…shame…shame.”

Just for fun, let’s run down the list of things Cersei is guilty of.

She blew up an entire church filled with people, including her son’s wife, because she didn’t feel like answering for her crimes. She arranged to have her whoring husband killed, and — as the Daily Wire points out — may be responsible for the murder of many innocent children just because they threatened her power.

While Clinton isn’t so bad as that, she has been known to support the help of those willing to murder innocent children for the sake of convenience. Those who do the baby murdering actually rewarded her for it. Also, her husband has been known to Robert Baratheon it up from time to time, so there’s that.

Unlike the Game of Thrones series, we know how Clinton’s story ends. So does the White House according to the Washington Times.

“I think it is pretty clear to the president what happened,” said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

I hate to ruin the ending to Clinton’s book for you, but she doesn’t get the Iron Throne.

Working Class Champion, Bernie Sanders, Hasn’t Paid Debts to Cities He Campaigned In

Champion of the working class, Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), has reportedly not paid back his dues to cities he visited for their security services during his visits during the 2016 presidential elections, and owes a pretty fair share.

According to Free Beacon’s Lachlan Markay, Sanders is some $450,000 in debt, owing money to over 20 cities he campaigned in for their protective services in September.

These cities include unpaid bills from the Irvine, California police department ($67,000), the city of Vallejo, California ($28,000), and the Santa Monica, California police department ($117,000).

According to USA Today, Sanders still has around $5 million in his campaign account that is just sitting there. Why it hasn’t been used to pay off his campaign debts — both President Trump and not-President Clinton have settled theirs — is anyone’s guess.

But Sanders and money have always had a tumultuous relationship. The Vermont senator and his wife, Jane, are currently embroiled in an FBI investigation into a $10 million loan from People’s United Bank in 2010 allegedly secured under false pretenses. The money was meant to purchase 33 acres of land for the now defunct Burlington College where she was president from 2004 to 2011.

So, the man who stomped around cities claiming that the people aren’t paid their fair share, and are consistently being worked over by those in power isn’t paying his fair share. This as he owns three different houses, one of which costs $600,000, which happens to be more than his accumulated debt to the cities that protected him during the campaign.

Remember folks, socialism is for the people, not the socialist.

More Americans Own Guns in the Home Than Ever

It’s never been a worse time to be a burglar according to a new according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey that said more people than ever have guns in their home.

According to the survey of 1,200 American adults, 48 percent said they or someone in their home own a firearm.

Stephen Gutowski of The Free Beacon reported that this is three percent higher than the total number of people who answered the same question last year, and nine points higher than the number in 2011.

“The United States Census Bureau estimates there are 249,454,440 adults currently living in America,” reported Gutowski. “If the Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey is accurate, that equates to 119,738,131 Americans with a gun in their home.”

That’s over one hundred million reasons not to break into anyone’s home.

This number is also contrary to the belief in some anti-gun circles that gun ownership in America is falling. According to a statement from the National Rifle Association, the number may even be higher.

“Throughout their many failures, gun control advocates have comforted themselves with their belief that gun ownership is falling and that they will be able to achieve their policy goals once the number of gun owners sufficiently dwindles,” said the NRA. “Polling data on gun ownership rates is inherently suspect. Gun ownership is a personal decision, and given the politically charged nature of the topic and government efforts to restrict gun rights, some gun owners are reluctant to share this personal information with strangers. This could result in polling that underreports gun ownership. Other research further suggests that female spouses living in gun-owning households tend to underreport firearm ownership.

“Despite the difficulty in obtaining an accurate measurement of gun ownership, gun control advocates have been quick to boast of any new poll that shows a decline in gun-owning households. It’s unlikely they’ll exhibit the same response to the WSJ/NBC poll’s findings,” added the NRA.

As trends come and go, one thing that will never stop is the American will to defend one’s person and property. While gun sales may spike and fall depending on who is promoting/restricting their use, America’s founding had guns in mind when in its groundwork. They’re integral to our freedom and safety.

Following years of leftist threats of restrictions in gun-ownership, or flat out attempts to have them taken away, it’s logical to see gun ownership at an all time high. Despite Trump’s pro-gun attitude, people have learned not to trust in a static attitude in places of power, and will likely continue to stock up in the event another Obama comes along.

Miss America contestants were repeatedly asked to speak out against Trump

Nothing is safe from someone injecting their politics into it, not even beauty pageants. In the case of this year’s Miss America contest, contestants were asked to put Trump on the chopping block on subjects like Russian collusion to climate change.

According to the Media Research Center, the Republican bashing began when judge Jordin Sparks hit Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis, with a question about whether or not Trump was guilty of colluding with Russia. Davis answered the president was “innocent,” prompting cheers from the crowd.

From the MRC:

Sparks: There are multiple investigations into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia on the election. Well, did they? You’re the jury: guilty or innocent and please explain your verdict.

Miss Missouri: Right now I have to say innocent, because not enough information has been revealed. We are still investigating this and I think we should investigate it to its fullest extent. If we do find the evidence that they have had collusion with Russia, the justice system should do their due diligence and they should be punished accordingly.

 

The political questions kept coming, but most of the contestants took a leftist stance. Miss Texas, Margana Wood, agreed with judge Jess Cagle that Trump should have condemned the white supremacists by name earlier in order to make Americans feel safe. Strangely, there was no mention of radical leftist Antifa’s violence by either judge, or contestant.

Judge Maria Menounos asked Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund about about whether or not the U.S. pulling out of the Paris Agreement was a solid way to combat “man made climate change.” Mund, chose to play the church of climate change’s organ, and said leaving the treaty was a bad idea.

However Miss New Jersey, Kaitlyn Schoeffel, seemed to also go against the politically correct grain. Upon being asked about whether or not the removal of confederate statues were a good idea by judge Tara Lipinski, Schoeffel took a rather moderate stance:

Lipinski: A recent poll found slightly over half of Americans favored leaving confederate statues in place while others want them removed. Keep them or get rid of them? What’s your vote and why?

Miss New Jersey: I don’t think the answer is to get rid of these statues. I think the answer is to relocate them into museums. Because we are truly defined by our country’s history, and I don’t think it’s something we need to forget. We need to always remember it and honor our history of America because it truly makes us who we are as Americans. But they should be moved to museums. Thank you.

Hopefully point scoring is geared more toward how they answered the question, and not what they answered it with. A contestant’s chances of winning being diminished due to the ideological stances of the judge is completely unfair.

Though it should be said that the winner of the 2017 Miss America pageant was Mund, Miss North Dakota, who promoted statist climate change intervention.

Of course, ideological stances have always dictated a contestants fame or infamy. In 2009, Miss California’s Carrie Prejean stated that while it was great that you can choose what you want to be sexually here in America, she was personally raised with the value of marriage being between a man and a woman.

Judge Perez Hilton, a gay gossip columnist who called Prejean a “stupid b**ch in a later video, is thought to have damaged Prejean’s chances of winning after that answer.

The majority of people believe Google is feeding us biased results, and some are taking action

Google is the largest search engine in America, thus controlling the vast majority of the information we get about the world around us. With all the firings of those guilty of wrong-think, YouTube censorship, and suspected search result manipulation, people have been losing their trust in the search engine’s ability to dole out information fairly.

A July survey shows that just over half of Google users believe that the results for any given search are biased to the left according to Digital Examiner.

Digital Examiner asked 1000 different people eight different questions, one of which was “do you think Google search results are biased in any way?”

According to respondents, 52 percent of those asked said they thought Google’s search results were biased.

Digital Examiner pointed out that a lot of this belief that Google is biased stems from several recent occurrences that paint Google with a very leftist light, including the sight’s alleged slant toward Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections.

The fact that over half of web users feel Google search is biased might well be a residual effect of the 2016 election when a highly publicized claim that Google was selectively eliminatingnegative autocomplete suggestions about Hillary Clinton. Google responded to the criticism claiming that “the autocomplete algorithm is designed to avoid completing a search for a person’s name with terms that are offensive or disparaging”.  Google’s defense was met with skepticism by distinguished research psychologist Robert Epstein who stated that “the way their statement is worded is that they eliminate all negatives for everybody, and that is positively not true.”

“Behind every algorithm is always a person, a person with a set of personal beliefs that no code can ever completely eradicate,” said Swedish author and journalist Andreas Ekström who said an unbiased search engine is an impossibility.

Whether or not it’s simply a person, or person’s algorithm, Google still has been known to show serious bias in the past. Award winning YouTuber, Phillip DeFranco, claimed he was recently punished by Google for not creating a pro-Clinton video during the election season.

Recently fired Google employee, James Damore, exposed Google’s bias toward a leftist social justice agenda, and exposed potentially illegal activity on Google’s part in their “diversity” efforts.

Frankly, it’s a wonder that suspicion of Google’s bias in search results isn’t higher, but using Google’s own trend tracker, we can see that suspicion is steadily growing.

capture

Despite this increase in suspected bias, DE highlighted that 72.3 percent of people still believe in the accuracy of Google’s search results.

Some have begun to attempt to peel the public dependence off of Google by using different search engines, and utilizing plugins to choke Google’s information absorption. The plans range from breaking the trust between Google and advertisers by manipulating click data to read false interests from users to installing different browsers with plug-ins that block Google’s ability to track your web travel.

Hollywood celebs get DESTROYED by common sense from the internet’s most famous celeb

As celebrities of stage and screen — and one wearing a lab coat — attempt to paint the recent catastrophes here in America as the inevitable result of our voting the wrong way, one celebrity is stepping forward to call out the others for their ridiculousness.

YouTube’s most famous content creator, Felix Kjellberg (a.k.a. PewDiePie) created a video on Sunday that ripped the partisan catastrophism of the Hollywood elite apart for the disgusting agenda pushing that it was.

“It’s so disgusting, to me, seeing this celebrities using these natural disasters — and blaming these fires caused by teenagers — to further their political agenda,” said Kjellberg.

“The fact that they use this, to me, is so f**king gross,” added the YouTube star. “It’s these kind of celebrities that live in a bubble.”

Pewds went on to lambaste celebs like Sarah Silverman and Jennifer Lawrence who recently attempted to paint disasters as the fault of President Donald Trump. Lawrence was recently said during an interview that it’s been “proven through science,” that “climate change is due to human activity.”

“Is that why you fly around in a private jet anywhere you go, Jennifer?” Kjellberg asked the star through his video.

The YouTuber highlighted the celebrity response to natural catastrophes as mother nature’s wrath for not voting the correct way.

“Well I guess she’s right,” said Kjellberg. “Mother nature is angry. America voted Trump, and mother nature wanted Hillary to win!”

“Send the hurricanes! You should have voted for Hillary!” said PewDiePie.

“How f**king dim can you be? My God. How do you end up like this?” asked Kjellberg. “I don’t understand. It blows my mind.”

PewDiePie goes on to highlight that hurricanes happen during hurricane season, and that celebrities foolishly “use it to blame the government.”
