Zio poll – Where the trolls live: Midlothian is UK’s most racist region, Northampton is sexist and north Wales is homophobic says huge study of hate Tweets

The worst areas in Britain for homophobic, racist and sexist abuse online have been revealed in a new study.

Analysis of 19 million tweets published in the past four years across the UK and US showed East Ayrshire and Midlothian in Scotland featured the highest number of racial abuse.

The most examples of misogynist insults were found in Northamptonshire while south Wales ranked highest in the UK for homophobia on social media.

Hate tweets are becoming a huge problem in the UK and increasingly being used in political and ideological disputes, such as the misogynistic abuse Labour MP Jess Phillips received including threats of rape and murder.

The data was published in a joint project between anti-bullying charity Ditch the Label and research firm Brandwatch, who reviewed a random sample of 19million tweets in the UK and US between 2012 and 2016.

And it revealed that people who voted Leave in the EU referendum were not more likely to racially abuse others online, although they were more likely to be transphobic.

In the US, Texas and Louisiana were the worst states for online racism, while Rhode Island and Iowa were where the most homophobic abuse was found.

Texas was also where the highest ratio of sexist tweets were recorded, with the state also high on the list for homophobia.

No problem, Stone Age is just around the corner – Secondary school BANS pupils from raising hands in class because it ‘doesn’t challenge and support the learning of all’

A secondary school has today been accused of putting ‘gimmicks’ over education after banning pupils from raising their hands to answer questions.

The Samworth Church Academy in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, has written to parents to say it has abolished the ‘age old practice’ because it doesn’t ‘challenge and support the learning of all’.

The Dangerous Deception Called “The Trump Presidency”

Donald Trump is yet another project of the same boring old patriarchs who try again and again to create a one world order that they control absolutely, a New World Order that one close Trump backer once referred to as universal fascism.

Ignore the sometimes fine rhetoric in some of his speeches. Talk is cheap. If we consider rather the agenda that’s taking form even in these very early days of cabinet naming, we can see that Donald Trump is the same agenda of war and global empire as Obama, as Bush before him, as Bill Clinton and Clinton’s “tutor”, George H.W. Bush before him. There is no good side to what the world is about to experience with President Trump.

‘Ladies and gentlemen, It’s Showtime!’ Today we give you Donald Trump.

He will tell you just what many of you want to hear. Trump the showman will tell you he will make America great again; Trump will say he will ship at least 3 million illegals back across the Rio Grande; Trump will introduce a bill to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization; Trump will bring jobs back to America from China and other low wage countries; Trump will sit down with Putin and work out some kind of a deal to calm things down; Trump will scrap the Iran nuclear deal of Obama…

Banned in Brazil

The Most Revolutionary Act

send-a-bullet

Manda Bala (Send a Bullet)

Directed by Jason Kohn (2007)

Film Review

Maori TV showed this 2007 documentary two nights ago – a timely choice in view of Brazilian legislative corruption that culminated in the illegal impeachment of democratically elected president Dilma Rousseff two months ago.

Send a Bullet is a horrifying account of class warfare, extreme wealth disparity and extreme violence in Sao Palo Brazil. The film has been banned in Brazil.

According to the filmmakers Sao Paulo, with a population of 20 million, experiences one kidnapping every single day. Ruthless outlaws routinely cut off ears and fingers to send with their ransom demands. The documentary profiles a Brazilian plastic surgeon who makes his living reattaching the severed ears of kidnap victims.

Because the government offers virtually no protection against kidnapping, wealthy Sao Paulo residents hire bodyguards, drive bullet proof cars and take special classes to protect themselves from…

Mainstream news is Humpty Dumpty, and he’s not coming back

Mainstream news is Humpty Dumpty, and he’s not coming back

By Jon Rappoport

Mainstream news is a dream pretending to be real.

In 1927, Carl Jung wrote: “…the dream is the theater where the dreamer is at once scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.”

But in the case of the news, the dream must come from an external place. It must come from The Anchor.

There must be His Voice and it must narrate (invent, fabricate) the hallucination.

In Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 film, Network, the unhinged news anchor Howard Beale tells his audience: “We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal…
