Wow!

I'd be satisfied with even a tenth of that number-- if I could get so many people viewing the stuff I seed on NT! Maybe I should change my approach...

Maybe I should go to one of these protests and make monkey noises at some of the people there?

Granted it might make me look like somewhat of a fool. (But then again, many people in social media forums frequently make fools of themselves by some of the things that they post!)

(Of course I don't think anyone has tried making monkey noises at other NT users in order to get more views-- and get their seeds voted up--

but what the heck? Its certaibnly worth a try! jrSmiley_4_smiley_image.png

Here's the way the vile far right rag Townhall saw it

Liberal Reporter Triggered by Frat Boys Counterprotesting Hamas Agitators, Calls Them 'Racist'

Left-wing media outlets loath anyone who stands up for the United States, so it’s no wonder they had a pity party when college fraternity students stood up against the liberal, anti-America pro-terrorism protestors harassing Jewish communities. 

Former ESPN reporter Jemele Hill got triggered by the groups of college boys counterprotesting the pro-Hamas agitators at the University of Mississippi— calling for them to be banned from campus. 

Many of the boys carried American and Trump flags as they hit back and mocked the sea of pro-terrorism protesters calling for the massacre of Israelis. 

Hill played the race card after reacting to a video that showed a black student being taunted by a group of white male students, calling the pro-American boys “racist.” 

She claimed the students were being hostile toward black students, demanding for the fraternity’s leader to be contacted and issue consequences to the boys immediately. 

“1.) What fraternity does he represent? That fraternity’s national leadership needs to be contacted immediately and that frat should be barred from campus,” Hill said, adding 

“2) We have recently seen endless conversations and action items created about antisemitism, but I’m guessing that same energy won’t be there to protect this open hostility directed at Black students.” 

Hill wasn’t the only liberal crybaby to pull out the race card. 

Mediaite published an article titled, “White Ole Miss Students Caught on Camera Mocking Black Protester In Shockingly Racist Viral Video.” 

The piece criticized counter-protestors who drowned out pro-Hamas agitators by singing The Star-Spangled Banner, which was praised by Republican Gov. Tate Reeves (R-Miss.) 

Others also claimed the pro-America boys were being racist. Former Democrat Ohio Sen. Nina Turner claimed the students were portraying “anti-blackness.” 

On the contrary, Rep. Mike Collins (R-GA) praised the fraternity brothers, saying “Ole Miss taking care of business.”

Townhall called it correctly. It's a right leaning site with many authors. Morbidly obese agitator was just looking to stir up shit. And she was rightly mocked and ridiculed.

Wow. It is just low to mention the woman's weigh issues-though apparent. It has nothing at all to do with her presence or reasoning for being there. Do come 'up' and speak to the moment and not play to the lowest common denominator.

Also, "agitators" is a much maligned word as it has both good and bad connotations. In the sixties, the civil rights marchers (such as the three students killed in Mississippi ( Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner) by racists living in the state.

This is a very isolated incident and there is no evidence that it is happening more frequently. There is ample evidence, however, to support the fact that right wingers do, indeed, support Israel's fight against terrorism. The same can't be said of the left.

It's doubtful they're mocking her because of skin color, more likely it's because she supports Hamas terrorism.

Students at “Ole Miss” (University of Mississippi) were caught on video mocking a Black woman in a shocking display of racism that has gone viral.

Protests   over the Israel-Hamas war   have   roiled campuses   across the country and led   to clashes   between pro-Palestine and pro-Israel protesters, as well as   with cops .

But the clash took on an added ugly dimension at Ole Miss this week when a pair of dueling viral videos illustrated a disturbing dynamic.

In one clip that   was praised by   Governor   Tate Reeves , students   drowned out   pro-Palestine demonstrators by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner”:

But another clip posted by   Stacey J. Spiehler   shows White students mocking a Black protester by mimicking monkey noises and gestures suggestive of odor, and chanting “Lock her up!”:

The shocking video earned praise from Republican legislator Rep.   Mike Collins , who   posted  the video and wrote “Ole Miss taking care of business.”

Others denounced Collins and the racist display:

Mississippi Free Press journalist   Ashton Pittman   called out the video and Collins, as well as Gov. Reeves,   writing   “A white Ole Miss frat boy dances like a monkey and makes monkey noises near a Black woman who was protesting for Palestine. Is this heart warming?”

Pittman also   reported   “frat boys throwing food, drinks and bottles at them. Others waved Trump flags and flipped the protestors off.”

A group of pro-Israel counterprotestors repeatedly attacked pro-Palestine demonstrators at UCLA as police stood by, a   New York Times   investigation has found.

Separate reporting from The Daily Beast indicates the counterprotestors were partly funded by outside agitators.

On Friday, the   Times   published an extensive report after the paper examined more than 100 videos from the clashes on Tuesday night. Pro-Palestine protests have taken place on college campuses across the country to urge their schools to divest from Israel over its war in Gaza in response to the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks. More than 2,000 demonstrators have been arrested nationwide, including about 200 at UCLA.

“The videos showed counterprotesters attacking students in the pro-Palestinian encampment for several hours, including beating them with sticks, using chemical sprays and launching fireworks as weapons,” the   Times   reported . “As of Friday, no arrests had been made in connection with the attack.”

The paper stated the attacks began at 10:50 p.m. “when a group of counterprotesters started tearing away metal barriers that had been in place to cordon off pro-Palestinian protesters” in an encampment that school officials declared illegal earlier in the day.

“Security personnel hired by the university are seen in yellow vests standing to the side throughout the incident,” the   Times   said. “A university spokesperson declined to comment on the security staff’s response.”

The attacks were nearly three hours old before police arrived. In the meantime, “Counterprotestors shot fireworks toward the encampment at least six times.” One was thrown at a group of protestors “who were carrying an injured person out of the encampment.”

The   Times   added that “counterprotesters sprayed chemicals both into the encampment and directly at people’s faces.”

“At times, counterprotesters swarmed individuals — sometimes a group descended on a single person,” the report continued. “They could be seen punching, kicking and attacking people with makeshift weapons, including sticks, traffic cones and wooden boards.”

The violence continued even after police showed up:

The   Times   said that neither the LAPD nor the California Highway Patrol replied to questions about their response to the violence.

Even after police dispersed the crowd, counterprotestors continued the assault:

While police continued to stand outside the encampment, a video filmed at 3:32 a.m. shows a man who was walking away from the scene being attacked by a counterprotester, then dragged and pummeled by others. An editor at the U.C.L.A. student newspaper, the Daily Bruin, told The Times the man was a journalist at the paper, and that they were walking with other student journalists who had been covering the violence. The editor said she had also been punched and sprayed in the eyes with a chemical.

The day after the violence, The Daily Beast reported that   Jessica Seinfeld   – a cookbook author and wife of   Jerry Seinfeld   – donated to the counterprotest.

“A GoFundMe for the effort, which Seinfeld promoted in an Instagram story this week after contributing at least $5,000, has since made the majority of its donations anonymous,” The Beast   reported . “The fundraising page has raised more than $93,000 as of Wednesday and also changed its organizer name and description since launching over the weekend.”

The publication further noted that billionaire   Bill Ackman   donated $10,000 to a similar counterprotest at George Washington University.

I watched a lot of what went on at UCLA live on our local news.  I saw chemical spray, or whatever it was, coming from behind the encampment barriers being sprayed at the pro-Israel counter-protestors.  I also saw someone come out from behind the encampment barriers and attack people wildly with a skateboard without any obvious provocation.  People from the pro-Palestinian side were also armed with poles.  So, I'm not so certain about the veracity of some of these reports.

I'm sure there were confrontations from both sides, but this newspaper report clearly states the ones outside the encampment instigated it.

Gsquared, I am pleased to read this response from you. Because it shows maturity and that you are not easily swayed by those who will try to divide liberals from the Jewish community whom vote 'independently.' This Gaza/Hamas-Israel war is damaging to our politics. . . and the Right see opportunity to spread misinformation and disinformation between liberals. I am glad you can see through the 'game' afoot. 

To be clear, my perspective is one of peace and justice and goodwill for all in the Middle East. I saw (Youtube) videos of Hamas shooting Israeli civilians (did not watch the burnings or other violent acts) and it sickened me. Hamas has no excuse for its act(s). Hamas should be found and brought to justice even if it means their organization being made ineffectual for all times or defunct! That said, Israel killing of Gaza civilians  in the thousands is beyond the pail and I condemn it equally.

I will leave this thought: 

And the women answered one another as they played, and said, “Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.”
Reflection: 'Hamas has slain its thousands of civilians and Israel its tens of thousands of civilians.'
It's all too much.

Agreed. The two-party system that has sustained us this far is now going through another spasm of irreconcilability as the extremes come to the forefront and attack its middle. Still, it is the 'duty' of those who are suitable for the task to call for political normalcy. That is, for the extremes to return to their stations at the far corners of the political ethos.

Too late, the internet 'democratised' the soapbox, we all will be trolls soon.
