Not content solely to use the offensive “climate denier” term against dissenting views on climate change, a Guardian writer adopted the term “extinction deniers” in a tirade against skeptics on May 23. Contributing writer Jim Tobias claimed Republicans instigated a “campaign of climate deception,” and smeared them as “extinction deniers” for listening to critics of an upcoming United Nations report during a May 22, House committee hearing.
In an article posted on Monday, The Guardian attacked what the liberal Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the “Slate of Hate”-- a set of bills designed to protect religious liberty in Tennessee. The headline asserted that the state is “set to ‘legalize hate.’”
Just when it seemed The Guardian couldn’t become even more biased on climate issues than it already was, it announced updates to its “style guide” to even more extreme language on the subject.
The British paper announced on May 17, it now prefers “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” to the phrase “climate change.” It also said “‘global heating’ is favoured over ‘global warming,’” but did not ban the other phrases.
Retired NBA career scoring champ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is back on the attack with yet another stinging rebuke of conservatives in a commentary appearing in The Guardian. Abdul-Jabbar says he is a gun owner and "this is not a finger-wagging creed demanding the banning of all firearms." But before he's through with his latest diatribe, he's demanding legislative controls on who should be allowed to own a gun.
Now 72 years old, NBA career scoring champion Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has dedicated much of his writing to attacking conservatives. His latest post on The Guardian describes an over-emphasis on sports in America and "a troubling trend of lazy and arrogant anti-intellectualism that has very real and dangerous consequences to American society." At the root of this is "ignorance masquerading as conservative ethos" and President Donald Trump is the champion of this irrational thinking.
There’s often a clear anti-capitalist bent to environmental alarm, as Guardian columnist George Monbiot proved again April 25.
“Our choice comes down to this. Do we stop life to allow capitalism to continue, or stop capitalism to allow life to continue?” Monbiot asked. His anti-capitalist rant argued that capitalism was “incompatible with the survival of life on Earth.”
In his NBA playing days, the volatile Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (KAJ) was well known for his unstoppable skyhook shot and, dubiously, for sucker punching opponents and basket supports when he got angry. Now he verbally punches President Donald Trump and NFL owners, while launching "sky hooks" for social justice in hard-hitting commentaries for the Hollywood Reporter and The Guardian. In his most recent verbal knockout punch, for The Guardian, he asks if there is any room left for social conscience amidst the commercial giant known as the Super Bowl.
During CNN Newsroom Thursday morning, the panel blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for wanting to “restrict voting rights” because he opposed a Democrat House bill which would demand Election Day be made a paid federal holiday.
This year basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has become a presence off the court as a social justice writer and strident opponent of conservatives. He's a contributing editor for the Hollywood Reporter, and in The Guardian Thursday, he selected Serena Williams, gymnast Maggie Nichols and Colin Kaepernick as his athletes of the year because their commitment to sport and society left us better off.
In an interview with the socialist British newspaper The Guardian, Hillary Clinton claimed the media is "failing to challenge Trump." Which media is she talking about? She slammed Fox News as "totally divorced from reality, but it is superb propaganda. I don’t know the best way to puncture that. You have to hope that reality catches up with politics and entertainment at some point.”
Barbra Streisand has long been known as one of lefty Hollywood’s standard-bearers, an identity that brings with it media appearances, protest attendance, and maybe some message-embedding in songs or movies.
The leftist British newspaper found "Broadway legend" Patti LuPone at the end of her rope in London.
“I want the quiet life,” she sighs longingly, then immediately goes into a furious rant about how “the Christian right in America is no different from al-Qaida. Print that, because someone needs to say it out loud!”
