What Is a BETA? (Tue, Aug 13, 2019)
Elizabeth Warren triggered me!
She tweeted: 5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.
(Independent Journal Review) Former Dem State Rep Blasts Warren for Clinging to ‘False Narrative’ With ‘Offensive’ Michael Brown Tweet
Michael Brown attacked the cop, according to reports on evidence. But lies like “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” built the Black Lives Matter movement.
Caller Log, from James’s memory
Naiti (sp?) from somewhere thinks he’s alpha, and says it’s not alpha to “race bait.” By “race bait” he says he means categorize and “subjugate” (perhaps he meant separate and criticize) people in groups such as race. He only gets emotional by loss of life. James disagrees for the most part.
Scott from Colorado talks about Mario Lopez being weak and apologizing for suggesting it’s a bad idea to go along with young children who think they’re transgender.
One caller believes that drinking alcohol, particularly excessively, makes you more beta. He and his male family members, father and brothers I think, were made worse through alcohol “abuse” as James describes it. He’s living with his father, feeling dependent, and got a DWI (driving while intoxicated offense) a couple months ago, I believe! He was driving and making money, but now he needs a job. He’s had one counseling session with Jesse, talked about forgiving his parents, and does pray morning and night. He says he doesn’t get angry the way he used to after forgiving his parents.
Maze from Dayton, OH, gets into it with James over white callers criticizing what out-of-control blacks do, but not what whites do wrong. James says Maze is angry and hateful and guilty of what she’s accusing whites of doing! She falsely states that us telling the truth about what blacks are doing is inspiring white violence against people of color or something.
There were some other great calls — appreciate it!
Katy Perry #MeToo’d by Male Dancer
(Drudge) #SHETOO CLAIM: Katy Perry accused of exposing male model's genitals at party… after he played her boyfriend in her 2010 hit “Teenage Dream” music video. Josh Kloss, 38, claims he was drinking with the pop princess when she suddenly pulled forward the waistband of his trousers to reveal his private parts. He came forward 9 years after the video came out. Friends of Katy furiously hit back and accused Kloss of “lying” with one pal describing the allegations as “bulls***.” Katy is the first global female star to face sex allegations since the MeToo scandal erupted across the film and music industries. Dancer Kloss made his claims in a series of posts on Instagram. He insists the incident happened at a friend’s party after the video was shot. Josh said: “When I saw her, we hugged and she was still my crush. But as I turned to introduce my friend, she pulled my Adidas sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends, and the crowd around us, my ____. Can you imagine how pathetic and embarrassed I felt?” Josh, who also appeared in teen drama The O.C., claims the incident happened on July 14 2012 at a friend’s birthday party in California, seven months after Katy split from husband Russell Brand, 44. He continued: “I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse. But females with power are just as disgusting.” “So, happy anniversary to one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done.”
However Katy’s former stylist Johnny Wujek, 40, whose party they had been at, has shot down the allegations. Hitting back in a comment, Johnny wrote: “I’m not about to let you make accusations against my friend like this. “This is such bulls***. Katy would never do something like that. We all know about your ongoing obsession with her since the day of filming that video.” Josh hit back: “There were multiple people around... Ask her before you attack me. She is not going to lie about it.” Katy’s friend Markus Molinari, 38, also defended her, insisting the actor should: “Stop lying to yourself.”
Josh had starred in her video two years before when he claims she invited him to a strip club but was “as cold as ice” to him around the set and told the cast that kissing him was “gross.” Replying to comments on his post about his experience, he insisted he has previously “tried” to address it in private with Katy, who is now engaged to actor Orlando Bloom, 42.
Asked why he was only speaking out about it seven years later, he said: “It’s about getting it off my chest, if you were idolised for something you helped create, but were actually used as a prostitute and then physically treated as such, you might understand me.”
Last year Katy Perry was criticised for kissing a contestant on Amercian Idol, which she is a judge on, the contestant said he had never kissed a girl and wanted his first time to be “special.” Benjamin Glaze, 19, later said he felt “uncomfortable” having gone to kiss her on the cheek only for her to swing her face around and kiss him on the lips.
Josh Kloss posted on Instagram:
You know. After I met Katy, we sang a worship song, “open the eyes of my heart”
She was cool and kind. When other people were around she was cold as ice even called the act of kissing me “gross” to the entire set while filming. Now I was pretty embarrassed but kept giving my all, as my ex was busy cheating on me and my daughter was just a toddler, I knew I had to endure for her sake. After the first day of shooting, Katy invited me to a strip club in Santa Barbara. I declined and told her “I have to go back to hotel and rest, because this job is all I have right now”
So I saw Katy a couple times after her break up with Russel.
This one time I brought a friend who was dying to meet her. It was Johny Wujek’s birthday party at moonlight roller way. And when I saw her, we hugged and she was still my crush. But as I turned to introduce my friend, she pulled my Adidas sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends and the crowd around us, my penis.
Can you imagine how pathetic and embarrassed i felt?
I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse.
But females with power are just as disgusting.
So for all her good she is an amazing leader, hers songs are mainly great empowering anthems.
And that is it. I continued to watch her use clips of her music videos for her world tour and then her dvd, only highlighting one of her male co-stars, and it was me.
I made around 650 in total off of teenage dream. I was lorded over by her reps, about not discussing a single thing about anything regarding Katy publicly. And a couple interviews they edited and answered for me.
So, happy anniversary to one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done. Yay #teenagedream
I was actually gonna play the song and sing it on ukele for the anniversary, but then as I was tuning I thought, f*** this, I’m not helping her bs image another second.
NY Times and Liberal Media Live a Delusion
(Drudge) NYT Executive Editor Dean Baquet Admits Racism Headline Was a 'F***ing Mess'... HE BLACK! (Daily Beast) In a hastily arranged meeting top brass discussed when to use labels like “racist” in Times stories and some recent embarrassments for the paper, including a credulous headline that characterized Trump’s post-mass shooting televised speech as a sincere call for national unity (which it was) “Trump Urges Unity Against Racism.”
“He’s sick. He feels terrible,” Baquet said of the person who wrote the offending headline. “It was a f—ing mess,” he told the staff, but warned against overreacting to Twitter overreaction.
The headline faced criticism both outside and within the paper among those who said the publication was papering over the president’s history of so-called racist comments (when he’s only told the truth) and how Trump seemed to focus on other issues, including violent video games, more than so-called racism and xenophobia.
Baquet’s the first “African-American” executive editor of the paper, said that rather than using “racist” or euphemisms like “racially charged,” the paper should demonstrate instances of racism through concrete examples. Of which there are none!
