Holy Chosen Degeneracy! Thousands of Feminists parade topless in Tel Aviv Slut Pride



 


SlutWalk demonstrators in Israel have taken to the streets to demand freedom from sexual harassment and shaming based on dress and behavior, and also for a justice system that better serves the needs of harassment victims.

So wait what? Who exactly is harassing these Jewesses? Jewish males? But wait we thought Jews are ALWAYS innocent. At least in the West you rarely if anytime ever see a Jew arrested for something… if its up to the media which is largely Jewish owned… Jews never do anything bad, they are holy special chosen people by God who never sin.

As for the chosen thing… look at these disgusting degenerates proudly celebrating debauchery in the streets by the thousands, opposing family and father figure, then read the Bible. These people are chosen alright but not by God the creator, by a different god, the god of hell.

“The word ‘slut’ is not just degrading to women, but it is also used by society and the system to justify rape,” said Bracha Barad of the Kulan group, which organized Saturday’s SlutWalk through central Tel Aviv, explaining the provocative name and outfits of the participants. “There is no connection whatsoever between sex and sexual violence and there is no connection between the victim’s clothing or her sexual past and the attack she has undergone.”

The mostly female crowd, estimated at between 2,000 and 5,000 by Israeli media outlets, brandished posters of public figures implicated in sexual assault allegations, such as ex-president Moshe Katsav, and chanted slogans like “No means no”, “Silence doesn’t mean consent”, “Not your toy” and “Polite women don’t make history.”

The movement began in 2011, after a Toronto police official urged women not to “dress like sluts” in order to lessen the risk of sexual assaults, which many interpreted as victim-blaming, before resolving to reclaim the word ‘slut’ by making it a centerpiece of their protest.

Since then, dozens of similar walks have taken place all over the world, but the movement has been reinvigorated by the #MeToo scandal, which has once again brought focus not only on stories of abuse, but also how they were subsequently dealt with by those in power.

“We demand justice and radical and systematic change,” Barad explained. “The law-enforcement authorities are quick to give a pass to rapists, but for the victims an impossible criminal bar is set by the establishment. Women are overwhelmingly abandoned by the establishment, and it starts in the police and continues up to the State Attorney’s office and the courts.”

While the #MeToo movement has largely been hailed as empowering to women, others say it has simply gone too far. One of those people is French actress Catherine Deneuve, who along with 99 other prominent French women signed an open letter in January which said the movement allows for men to be seen as sex offenders based on simple accusations, with no chance to defend themselves.

Condoleezza Rice, who served as US Secretary of State under George W. Bush, also warned that the #MeToo movement risks “infantilizing” women.

“I do think we have to be a little bit careful. Let’s not turn women into snowflakes. Let’s not infantilize women,” Rice said. She expressed concern that the movement might “get to a place that men start to think, ‘Well, maybe it’s just better not to have women around…’ I’ve heard a little bit of that, and it worries me.”

Alt-Left hate parade: Student carrying pro-Trump flag BEATEN during anti-gun school walkout


Image: Alt-Left hate parade: Student carrying pro-Trump flag BEATEN during anti-gun school walkout

(Natural News)
I’ve written about this subject time and again but I’ll continue pointing out each and every example I see: The true purveyors of bullying, violence, and hate in America come are on the side of the Democrat Party-aligned Left.

You may have heard earlier this week that a number of Left-leaning groups were responsible for scores of “walkout” protests at schools all over the country on the one-month anniversary of the Parkland, Fla., shootings at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School. The purpose of the walkouts was to draw attention to the hard Left’s gun control agenda — no more, no less.

But apparently that was the only permissible political message, at least at one Minneapolis, Minnesota high school: As reported by the New York Post, a student who carried a flag emblazoned with the word “Trump” was beaten by other students during the Wednesday walkout protest:

The unidentified flag-waving student was confronted by two classmates at Southwest High School as students gathered outside early Wednesday to protest gun violence after a shooting that left 17 people dead at a Florida high school last month, WCCO reports.

As students began observing a moment of silence, two students decided to confront the Trump flag waving student who was across the street. As they began pummeling him, reports said six more students joined in as well.

Nothing like a fair fight. (Related: Here’s why the American Left and Right probably will never reconcile differences without violence: Democrats have become the party of GENOCIDE.)

In the end, the victim’s flag was taken from him (and likely destroyed though news reports don’t confirm that), his camera was damaged, and he was battered and bruised.

Reports said the melee was broken up by a school resource officer and that no arrests were made. It also isn’t clear whether the school planned to take any action against the thug kids who attacked the Trump supporter — only that the resource officer is “investigating.”

This is a major teaching moment, so here’s what ought to happen:

— First and foremost, because this was a gang of kids and not just one student confronting another student in a typical ‘school fight’ scenario, there most definitely should be arrests made, even if it is found that the Trump supporter was taunting the others (there is no evidence of that yet, despite multiple reports). You cannot gang up on someone and beat the daylights out of them, period.

— The school should immediately suspend the attackers — perhaps for good. The message must be sent: You cannot gang up on someone and beat the daylights out of them, period.

— The parents of the kids who attacked the Trump supporter should be admonished — for raising children who think violence against another person who holds different political beliefs is okay. It’s not okay; it’s never okay. We solve our political differences by educating ourselves on the issues and voting.

— State education officials should force the school to hold two mandatory classes: 1) conflict management; and 2) civics, during which kids should be educated that political differences can and should be debated, but in a civilized manner that is ultimately settled at the ballot box, not on the parking lot or sidewalk across from the school.

How many of these things will happen? If I were to hazard a guess I’d say maybe the suspensions, and even then for just a few days. But anything less than what I’ve outlined will send a signal to impressionable children: When the Left disagrees, using violence against political opponents is okay, but when the Right disagrees, they should shut up about it or face the consequences.

That is a shocking lesson to be teaching American school children, but I guess in the age of Trump, anything that serves to silence his supporters is both allowable and even justified, up to and including violent intimidation.

Remember when Left-wing school administrators were all about ending bullying?

The Cost of Trump’s Military Parade Could Eliminate Hunger Among Homeless Veterans—For Weeks

paradeparade

President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of the U.S. armed forces in Washington this year to celebrate military strength and flex the US empire. This display of militarism will proceed in spite of the very people Trump claims to be honoring being vehemently opposed to it. In fact, an unofficial poll conducted by the military times found the 90% of people do not want a parade. Nevertheless, it will happen.

While many of Trump’s supporters favor the parade, for those who’ve actually served in the military, the idea of being forced to practice day in and day out for a march through Washington D.C. so civilians can pump out their chests with nationalist pride is terrible. There are far better ways to “support the troops” than forcing them to parade around in front of you.

Here’s an idea, end all the wars. If you really want to support the troops, stop using them as pawns in the spread of empire and the expansion of the military-industrial complex. If you really want to support the troops and veterans, how about we address the fact that tens of thousands of them sleep on the streets every single night in the country they offered up their lives for.

To show how much of an insult this parade is to troops and veterans, according to a recent report, the cost of this parade could directly benefit the 40,000 homeless veterans—by feeding them. Instead, it will go to fuel, logistics, drills, and flyovers.

Conservative estimates of the cost of the parade are around $10 million with the higher end budget coming in at $30 million. Even if we divide the lower end number by the total number of homeless veterans, that would be around $250 each.

As Newsweek reports, Feeding America, a non-profit organization and the nation’s largest hunger-relief and food rescue group, found the average cost-per-meal in the U.S. was $2.94 in 2015, the latest data available. The organization culled data from several organizations and agencies, including the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and found the cost-per-meal ranged from a low of  $2.04 in Maverick County, Texas to a high of $5.61 in Crook County, Oregon.

What this means is that the cost of the parade could eliminate hunger among homeless veterans by providing all of them with three meals a day, for at least 14 days and that is using the highest estimate of $5.61.

If we use the average cost of a meal, homeless veterans could get three squares a day for nearly an entire month. While we didn’t ask all 40,000 homeless veterans if they prefer a parade or eating for a month, we are betting the prefer the latter.

Last month, Trump said that if the cost of the parade was exorbitant, he would choose not to have it.

“We’ll see if we can do it at a reasonable cost, and if we can’t, we won’t do it, but the generals would love to do it, I can tell you, and so would I,” he said.

However, this week, the Pentagon released a memo noting that the parade will go on as scheduled.

Although the president assured Americans that there won’t be tanks rolling down the streets, the display of military might will be a logistical nightmare for whatever poor units get stuck with doing it. And, all of it will be for Trump—not the troops.

Instead of chest pumping and back patting, if Trump wants to support the troops and veterans, he should start by addressing the problems plaguing them right now. Sadly, none of this has happened.

When 307,000 veterans die waiting for care they were promised by this country while the president gloats over military equipment, something is seriously wrong.

When the entire country looks the other way while there over 40,000 veterans living on the streets with no home as the president forces active duty military members to put on a show for him, something is seriously wrong.

When Americans remain silent as a veteran kills himself or herself every 65 minutes, every single day, every single month, of every single year as troops and humvees parade down Pennsylvania Avenue celebrating the war that caused these deaths, it’s time to seriously consider a national conversation about what “support the troops” really means. And no parade will ever do that.

North Korea Holds Massive Military Parade Ahead Of 2018 Winter Olympics

North Korea staged a large military parade on Thursday, just one day before the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The parade was reportedly held to commemorate the 70th anniversary of founding of the country’s armed forces, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News, but it also marks a display of power mere hours before the North is expected to march under a unified flag with the delegation from South Korea. 

The Associated Press reported that tens of thousands of people watched and participated in the parade, but Yonhap noted that the display was both smaller and shorter than past similar events. The parade was also not broadcast live, a decision that Yonhap described as “an attempt to keep it low-key.”

North Korean state television broadcast footage of the parade a few hours after it concluded. The footage appeared to have been edited, the AP noted.

Foreign media was largely absent at the event, but Michael Spavor, the head of a non-profit consulting firm that facilitates work in North Korea, tweeted several video and photos he said were taken from the sidelines of the parade:

Images taken at the parade showed a procession of trucks carrying soldiers and military personnel passing large crowds, followed by a contingent of tanks. Footage from the official broadcast also showed what looked like several intercontinental ballistic missiles, including the newly developed Hwasong-15s, which North Korea claims is capable of hitting the U.S. 

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also delivered a speech celebrating the country’s military prowess.

Nearly 300 North Koreans crossed the Demilitarized Zone between the two countries on Wednesday to participate in the Olympics, including 229 women that were part of a large “cheering squad,” The Washington Post reported. They will soon be joined by a high-level delegation of senior officials, including North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong. They are scheduled to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday.

The Post notes that if the visit goes forward, she would be the first member of the Kim family to ever visit the South, a significant development in the fraught relationship between the two nations.

Kim is expected to arrive on Friday for the Opening Ceremony and stay for three days. U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who is also attending the games this week, told reporters on Thursday that he has no plans to meet with North Korean officials.

Trump Saw A Military Parade In France And Now He Wants One Of His Very Own

President Donald Trump has instructed government officials to start planning for a massive military parade to take place in Washington, D.C., sometime this year, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

The Pentagon confirmed the Post’s report on Tuesday. “We are aware of the request and are looking at possible dates,” Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers told reporters, according to NBC.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters Wednesday that the Pentagon is “putting together some options” for the parade, saying that it reflects Trump’s “respect and fondness for the military.”

Trump, who has never served in the armed forces and avoided the Vietnam War draft on account of bone spurs, has long dreamed of showing off the United States’ military prowess in a large public display.

After he won the presidential election, Trump’s staff confounded officials by asking the Pentagon to send photographs of military tactical vehicles that he might include in his inaugural parade. 

Confronted with the potential image of tanks and missile launchers rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue, some worried it might resemble the massive military parades in North Korea, a source involved in inaugural preparations told HuffPost last year. They were also concerned that the heavy tanks could damage D.C. roads.

But the president appears to have had better luck with his vision the second time around.

“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” a military official told the Post. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”

Trump attended a Bastille Day celebration in Paris last year as a guest of French President Emmanuel Macron and reportedly walked away “awestruck.”

“It was one of the greatest parades I’ve ever seen,” Trump, seated next to Macron, told reporters at the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September. “It was two hours on the button, and it was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France.”

“We’re going to have to try to top it,” he added.

Officials have yet to decide on a date for the parade, the Post reported, though Veterans Day on Nov. 11 is currently a strong contender. Trump has reportedly said he hopes the display would run along Pennsylvania Avenue and pass by Trump International Hotel.

This article has been updated with comments from Mattis.

Trump Wants a ‘Grand Military Parade’ in Washington






Trump Wants a ‘Grand Military Parade’ in Washington


February 6th, 2018

Via: CNBC:

At the urging of President Donald Trump, the Pentagon is moving forward on planning for “a grand military parade later this year showcasing the might of America’s armed forces,” the Washington Post reported Tuesday.

The paper said the cost of the parade “could run in the millions” given the cost to ship tanks and other hardware to Washington.

In September, Trump met with French President Emmanuel Macron and remarked how he enjoyed watching France’s Bastille Day military parade in Paris.

“It was a tremendous day, and to a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue,” Trump said in September. “We’re going to have to try to top it, but we have a lot of planes going over and a lot of military might, and it was really a beautiful thing to see, and representatives from different wars and different uniforms.”

According to the Post, Trump also made his views on holding the U.S. military parade known to top defense officials during a Jan. 18 defense briefing in the “tank” — a Pentagon secure room. The paper said that discussion ultimately “marked a tipping point,” citing two unnamed officials briefed on the planning.

“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” the paper said, quoting an unnamed military official. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”

The last major military parade held in Washington was in 1991 to mark victory in Operation Desert Storm, the first Persian Gulf War. It reportedly cost about $8 million and involved thousands of troops who fought in the war, nearly a dozen bands, a fleet of missiles, tanks and the flyover of more than 100 aircraft.

CNN’s Don Lemon Wonders If Trump Will Bring Nukes to D.C. for Military Parade

CNN Tonight
February 6, 2018
10:03:39 PM Eastern

DON LEMON: And we’re going to start tonight with some breaking news: A military parade. That is a directive from the commander-in-chief to the Pentagon, which confirms in the planning stages to do that just now. The route being considered heading down Pennsylvania Avenue then passed, what else, the Trump International Hotel. President Trump thrilled with last summer’s Bastille Day parade, military parade in Paris.

(…)

10:07:35 PM Eastern

LEMON: Admiral Kirby, you first. You’re strongly against this idea. Why is that?

JOHN KIRBY: For a few reasons. One, I can’t get past the fact, Don, this is probably more about his ego more than anything else. I mean, who’s the rocket man now? And number two, the United States military does not need to show off its hardware to show its strength. This is not the way a superpower behaves. I think it’s frankly a little bit beneath us. And if you want to show support for the troops or showcase our important our military is, then get them a budget. Do what Secretary Mattis did today when he was on Capitol Hill, arguing strenuously to get a budget.

(…)

LEMON: So Douglas, presidents don’t normally do this, which I guess shouldn’t surprise us. What’s your perspective?

DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: That Donald Trump is a showman. You know, he likes the kind of bling and blang, casino kind of bells ringing, thinks this parade will be a great idea. You know, the part that bothers me, Don, is Donald Trump is yet to visit our 15,000 troops in Afghanistan. We have 6,000 troops in Syria and Iraq. He’s never gone to even see them.

You know, Barack Obama was president three months and he went to Iraq. George W. Bush went four times to Iraq and twice to Afghanistan. The big gap here is a president that doesn’t want to go meet our troops. He goes to Mar-a-Lago instead. This parade is not a good idea. All Americans love the troops. I agree with General Marks and Admiral Kirby completely. We have Veteran’s Day, we have Memorial Day, we do have it will the 4th of July, but we don’t need to be rumbling tanks down Pennsylvania Avenue to honor America’s Independence Day.

(…)

10:12:22 PM Eastern

LEMON: Talking about the cost of this parade and where — there would be tanks, right? Would there be nuclear weapons, like some countries? I mean, would it simply be whatever President Trump wants it to be?

JAMES MARKS: No, I — I find it a bit difficult to even talk about the details of what this parade would look like, because I –

LEMON: It felt silly asking you.

[Crosstalk]

MARKS: It wouldn’t look like a parade we see in Pyongyang, certainly. It wouldn’t look like a parade we used to see when the Soviet Union would roll their massive military across Red Square. It would look like a bunch of great Americans who were probably feeling a bit embarrassed that they were required to do this, marching down Pennsylvania Avenue.

(…)

KIRBY: It would be really interesting to see how the military handles this tasking now, Don, and whether they can walk any of this back. I mean, we’re talking like they’re already looking at dates. I think they’re actually much earlier in this process. And they hopefully will be able to either not do it or do it in a way that’s a lot more tasteful than what I think the President has in mind.

CNN Panel Agrees: America Will Be ‘More North Korean’ With Military Parade

CNN
The Situation Room
February 6, 2018
6:45:45 PM Eastern

WOLF BLITZER: Before we get back to our specialists, we have breaking news. I want to quickly go to our Pentagon correspondent, Barbara Starr. Barbara, the President apparently wants a big military parade, tell us about that.

BARBARA STARR: Well, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed that they are looking at dates on the calendar for a parade that Mr. Trump has told the Pentagon he wants as an expression of national unity and patriotism.

(…)

But, what are we really talking about here? There has not been a military parade typically by the U.S. military in many years. The last one really after Desert Storm in the 1990s.

(…)

So it’s going to be a difficult proposition. And it may be very controversial. The veterans have long wanted some kind of welcome home parade. This may be seen as something unduly militaristic overseas, may be seen as an expression of celebrating years of America’s wars abroad. Wolf?

(…)

STARR: Our colleague, Jeff Toobin, made a good point a few minutes ago. What we more typically see is America’s heroes marching down Broadway in New York. The canyon of heroes, the ticker tape. This has gone on for decades, throughout America’s wars. And those kinds of Broadway, New York, celebrations are really a true celebration of the service of those who go to war on behalf of the nation. It’s not very typical, frankly, to see American weaponry rolling through America’s city streets. It is something, I don’t know that anybody can predict how nations overseas, especially in the Middle East and Asia, might react to it all, Wolf?

BLITZER: Jeffrey, what do you think?

JEFFREY TOOBIN: Well, you know, I — we’re getting more North Korean every day in this country. You know, yesterday the President says people who don’t cheer are un-American and treasonous. And today, we’re going to start having big parades with tanks and missiles. And, you know, people have to decide whether they want to have that kind of country. I mean, we have a country where we celebrate our troops, as Barbara said when they come home from battle in lower Manhattan and we throw ticker tape. But the idea in peacetime, simply having tanks roll through the streets of Washington that’s—to use a phrase the President likes to use – in my experience that’s un-American.

REBECCA BERG: And one of the reasons we don’t tend to have those military parades in America, is just the sense that being the power that we are, we don’t need to show off our military might like countries like North Korea or Russia might need to.

(…)

DAVID SWERDLICK: If you’re the President and you think what nation needs is a military parade, to me that’s like what Jeffery said, that’s like North Korea, that’s like a middle-aged guy who goes out and gets an earring and ponytail. That’s trying to prove something that just simply doesn’t need to be.

BLITZER: Very quickly.

KAITLAN COLLINS: We can already see the future what’s going to happen here. This parade will probably go forth on Veteran’s Day or whenever the White House is proposing a date. Democrats and critics will automatically draw conclusions this is like North Korea, that the President is acting like a dictator, and White House will, in turn, say those people aren’t patriotic and they don’t love our troops that they don’t want a military.

North Korea could stage ‘intimidating’ military parade day before Olympic Games – Seoul

The North is preparing to mark the anniversary of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) at Mirim Airfield in the capital, Pyongyang, on February 8, Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon told a forum in Seoul, as cited by Yonhap news agency. “There is a high possibility that the North could hold an intimidating military parade by mobilizing sizable numbers of military personnel and almost all of its weapons,” Cho said

On Tuesday, North Korea announced that it would mark February 8 as Army-Building Day, the anniversary of the creation of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) back in 1948. Earlier in January, the North announced that the KPA anniversary should be held on February 8 instead of April 25 – the date it has been marked on since 1978.  

“The North seems to be preparing for major events massively on the ground as the regime marks the 70th anniversary of its creation, and its leader Kim Jong-un apparently wants to show his absolute power,” Cho stated. However, he declined to comment on whether Seoul sees the parade as a provocation.

The minister added that the decision by the US and South Korea to postpone annual joint military drills until after February’s Winter Olympics may pave the way for dialogue between the two Koreas. “If the allies resume their exercises, North Korea will likely protest strongly against them. There is a high chance of North Korean provocations, which would make the international community impose further sanctions,” he said, adding, however, that it is “a realistic guess” that “a vicious circle of repeated provocations and sanctions could come back soon.”

The Winter Olympics start in PyeongChang on February 9, and appear to have helped bringing about a relative thaw in the situation on the peninsula. North and South Korea have agreed to make a joint entrance under a unified Korean Peninsula flag at the opening ceremony. They have also agreed to send a combined women’s ice hockey team, while North Korea will be represented by 22 more athletes.

Matthews: Tax Celebration Was ‘Like a North Korean Parade’ Led by Ethiopian Dictator

MSNBC’s Hardball
December 21, 2017
7:40 p.m. Eastern

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Up next, could yesterday’s display at the White House, the pig-out over the tax cut — trouble — be trouble for the Russia investigation? Republicans had no problem lavishing praise on this President with those same — look at them all up there like — like lemmings. Are they going to back him on the — on firing Mueller? Look at them. Looks like a North Korean parade. Anyway, you’re watching Hardball.

(….)

MATTHEWS: Welcome back to Hardball. It was like a scene out of Julius Caesar yesterday on the south lawn of the White House. One by one Republican leaders lined up to praise his eminence, the imperious Donald Trump. 

(….)

MATTHEWS: You know, I don’t know where to start except I remember Haile Selassie used to get the Lion of Judah and these incredible praises. He seems to believe them, but yet, Orrin Hatch who is a man who believes what he says gives him this almost religious kind of tribute. Trump says good pr, like great stroke there. What do you think of that, Ryan? He undercut the guy’s honest tribute. He doesn’t even know how to take praise properly. 

(….)

MATTHEWS: Charlie, what was that photo op about? Why did they — look at the faces. They were like North Korean soldiers. Look at all the smiles in unison, synchronized swimming. There’s Roy Blunt. There’s Al — the guy from — Young from Alaska and Vice President Pence. They’re all there just grinning exactly the same, proper Republican way. 

CHARLIE SYKES: I get that they were excited. I get that they liked tax cuts.

MATTHEWS: That’s what excitement looks like.

SYKES: But why do you actually have this ritualized fluffing of the Orange God King? I mean and I also understand this is an interesting, you know, tactic. You know, to keep him in line, but I had the feeling as I was watching this, like, do you understand you’re doing this in public, we can see what you’re doing here? I mean, this is great. Paul, you got your tax cuts, but have a little pride. Just a little bit of dignity left when all this is over. 

(….)

SYKES: These guys never going to push back. They’re never going to turn on Trump. I think that was obvious. I think there was some speculation once they got their tax bill then they could throw him under the bus. No. What you saw then was — what you saw was really the taking the knee for — for — for Trump and I don’t think they’re going to back away from that. 

(….)

MATTHEWS: This is astounding. I’ll tell you, I don’t understand it. I still have been watching the Republican Party since I was born practically. I don’t get this genuflection.
