Aditi Natasha Kini blasted Hollywood portrayals of interracial couples in a Thursday item for the feminist website Jezebel — specifically, two movies about "a brown man wanting to date a white woman." Kini asserted that the films were "masturbatory fantasies." The writer singled out these movies for their depictions of "brown" women as "caricatures...and/or the butts of a joke." She contended, "Representation isn't a checklist, or an excuse for exclusion of more minoritized people. 'Representation' like this furthers white supremacy."
When one trudges through existence with a particular proto-Marxist worldview that fetishizes victimhood, the inevitable outgrowth of such perpetual hysteria manifests itself in assertions that seem to grow more and more hyperbolic with time. Such was the case for pundit and pro-Palestinian activist Peter Beinart when he wrote a Thursday piece entitled The Racial and Religious Paranoia of Trump’s Warsaw Speech featured in The Atlantic.
The New York Times Used Trump’s overseas trip to pick on “right-wing” Poland and falsely suggest he’s the first president to criticize his country while overseas.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Actresses Melissa Rauch and Zosia Mamet are set to perform The Secret Lunches of Chelsea and Ivanka on New York July 24. Naturally, all proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.
CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley has been unhinged in offering deranged meltdowns before, but this one during Friday’s At This Hour was perhaps his worst. Whining about the lack of “climate activism” from the Trump administration, Brinkley bemoaned President Trump’s “embarrassing” G-20 trip leading to “a shrinking of American prestige.”
On Thursday, President Trump delivered a rousing defense of Western civilization in Poland and the West's history of confronting existential threats to international liberty. Such a speech gained the admiration of Reaganites and the venom of the perpetually outraged, but CNN Tonight host Don Lemon had one sole focus: Trump’s comments on CNN’s self-beclowning that he gave in response to a question he received on the subject by a reporter.
Emma Stone, set to play lesbian tennis star Billie Jean King in the film Battle of the Sexes, compared King to Hillary Clinton – and the parallel ended up failing miserably. The movie is about a famous 1973 tennis match when King bested braggart and showman Bobby Riggs – who had claimed no woman could beat him – at the Astrodome in Houston.
Your taxpayer-funded radio at work: arts reporter Willis Ryder Arnold of St. Louis Public Radio just promoted a gallery showing for progressive artist/former Clinton arts bureaucrat Bunny Burson. But this is the precious part: Burson has used the confetti that never fell from the Hillary Clinton “victory party” at New York’s Javits Center on Election Night to create inspirational art for the depressed feminists of America.

Poland’s President on Thursday dismissed as “fake news” media claims that his wife snubbed Donald Trump’s attempt at a handshake. Regarding hyperbolic stories in Newsweek, USA Today and by The Washington Post, President Andrzej Duda tweeted, “Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump @POTUS after a great visit. Let's FIGHT FAKE NEWS.”
ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd got very preachy, on Friday, as he scolded Donald Trump supporters for attacking a “free press.” On his official Twitter account Dowd pontificated: “It seems today that the only block to authoritarianism is a free press. And President and his supporters are fullscale attacking that. Wow.” Dowd later added “Our congress today is just enabling it. And I don't trust judiciary at this point.”
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's CNN Tonight, liberal New York Times columnist and CNN commentator Charles Blow managed to make a case that there is a liberal bias in the dominant media even while concluding that the liberal bias claim is "kind of false" as he asserted that there is actually an "urban media bias" instead. Host Don Lemon and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter voiced agreement with Blow's assessment.
