German right-wing extremists assault police, escalate public confrontations

A street sign in Halle, Germany, defaced with right-wing propaganda stickers. Such “postering” operations are part of a larger strategy to occupy and claim public space for the far right, say local residents. Still think there’s no neo-Nazi problem in … Continue reading

Quotable: Bernie Sanders on Canadian healthcare

Shame on you, Neil Macdonald…AGAIN.

As someone who lives in what’s so quaintly called a “bedroom community”, I get to see my fair share and then some of what happens when people flee the unaffordable real estate market of Toronto. Good things, occasionally; bad things, … Continue reading

So long, Hef…and thanks for NOTHING.

So, the long overdue has finally happened: Hugh Hefner is dead. He leaves behind four children, two ex-wives, and one current one who stands to inherit…NOTHING. That’s right, folks, she gets bupkus, thanks to a pre-nup that Hef had her … Continue reading

Donnie’s pathetic anti-Venezuela salvo falls flat

People didn’t clap for Donnie’s call for sanctions against Venezuela. They snickered. Because it IS pretty damn dumb to praise “sovereignty” on the one hand, and then go undermining it just because you hate it when it takes the form … Continue reading

Cops Behaving Badly: Georgia’s “finest” at work — affirming racism!

OMG, this is unbelievable…except that it totally isn’t. After all, this is Cobb County, Georgia…where racism is just good ol’ Southern heritage and tradition at work. And even the cops affirm it, however inadvertently this one let the (open) secret … Continue reading

The incredible egotism of Donnie Drumpf

How bad is it when you actually have to applaud Donnie for FINALLY spelling “unprecedented” right? Well…so bad that he’s still tripping over his dick even as Houston lies underwater. He’d rather bully Canada and Mexico, and pardon Joe Arpaio … Continue reading

Down goes Ezra! Down goes Ezra!

Hey! Remember when right-wing crapagandarati thought they ruled the world? Well, one of them is out of the White House. And another one, a lesser northern one, is out of the Internets altogether, apparently: The ultra-conservative online Canadian media outlet … Continue reading
