Youtube's new #ProudToBe campaign celebrating LGBT has fallen victim to /pol/'s memetic warfare. Withe comments section being inundated with troll #ProudToBe comments or declarations that homosexuality is a mental illness and over 150,000 dislikes.
I don't know much about the issue, but as a Texan, I think it's unfair when people make fun of us for some wanting to leave the union (even though we never will), but when Britain is actually about to go through with it people are like, "well, okay". Fucking double standards. I think they should stay, it sounds like the main reason is because they're afraid of Muslims, when has a little diversity ever hurt anyone? Texas is actually a very diverse place, despite how others may see us, and we're better for it, so get over yourselves, racist pigs.

He was resisting arrest, in a neighbourhood full of what seems to me african Americans, it also looked dangerous, 2 cops anf there where bunch of people arround could be friends or family. What did he expect
>>50629 There are a lot of cops who are violent cunts. Blacks, having generally a higher rate of crime in their communities, therefore deal more with aforementioned violent cunts, resulting in shit like this.
I live in Brazil and last days ago, the brazilian police found isis groups in portuguese (is our language) and a found a man in other city who was preparing to attack in olympics. (He's traveled to middle east, syria) last year and wrote in your diary that prayed for allah everyday in 1~2 hours and practice shots. I think that's have a big big chance for terrorists attack brazil. What think about this?! My english is poor, sorry.
Recently, Jack Conway was “cutting turf," the term for digging up blocks of moss in Emlagh peat bog in County Meath, Ireland, when he discovered a 22-pound lump of butter. The find, believed to be 2,000 years old, according to the Irish Times, isn't an unusual occurrence in Ireland, where every year, people digging up peat moss to heat their homes encounter chunks of the dairy.
The discoveries, which are called Bog Butter, can be thousands of years old. In 2009, a 77-pound, 3,000-year-old oak barrel of the stuff was found in County Kildare. In 2013, a turf... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In a paper published in the Journal of Irish Archaeology, Caroline Earwood explains that bog butter is usually found in earthenware pots, wooden containers, animal skins, or wrapped in bark and takes on a pungent, cheesy odor. Looking at over 274 instances of bog butter from the Iron Age to medieval times, Earwood concluded that early Celtic people probably sunk the butter in the bog simply to preserve it or protect from thieves. The cool, low-oxygen, high acid environment of the bog made a perfect natural refrigerator. Seeing as butter was a valuable commodity and was used... Comment too long.

“It did smell like butter, after I had held it in my hands, my hands really did smell of butter. There was even a smell of butter in the room it was in,” Donohoe says.
Though Irish celebrity chef Kevin Thornton took a bite of bog butter in 2014, Andy Halpin, assistant keeper at the National Museum’s Irish Antiquities Division, advises the Irish Times that it’s probably not wise to sample the Iron Age delicacy.
For those curious, Ben Reade, head of Culinary Research and Development at Nordic Food Lab created his own ancient butter recipe back in 2012. Reade's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>A bunch of meme-slinging Donald Trump supporters are having a party on Reddit. A loud, fun party. You probably weren’t invited. And now, someone just called the cops.
>Reddit announced this week that it would tweak the algorithm on r/all, a feed of popular posts across all the site’s subreddits, to stop certain communities from promoting large numbers of their own posts... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The posts rise up the ranks of r/all because the subreddit’s subscribers enthusiastically “upvote” pretty much everything posted there. Sometimes, the moderators will “sticky” a post of particular interest to the subreddit to the top of its feed, which has the effect of drawing even more votes. Redditors suspect that the subreddit is engaging in “vote manipulation,” against Reddit’s rules, though r/The_Donald’s moderators deny that accusation.
Reddit chief executive Steve Huffman told Redditors that the change was not entirely attributable to r/The_Donald and that Reddit had been “working on this change for a while.” But “I cannot deny their behavior hastened its deployment,” he added in a town hall post on Reddit on Thursday afternoon.
“We have seen many communities like r/the_donald over the years — ones that attempt to dominate the conversation on Reddit at the expense of everyone else,” his post said. “This undermines Reddit, and we are not going to allow it.”
The Trump subreddit has no official affiliation with the Trump campaign. It’s simply one point in a nexus of the right-leaning Internet literate who have thrown their memes behind Trump’s presidential run.
The subreddit r/The_Donald is generally more sincere in its support for Trump than, say, 4chan’s /pol/boards, where the alt right’s racist meme lords go for anti-Semitic jokes and smear campaigns. While there’s cross-pollination between r/The_Donald and /pol/’s membership, the Reddit community has a set of periodically changing rules that bans activity that might make their chosen candidate look bad — for instance, doxxing or anti-Semitism, one moderator said. On 4chan, Trump’s appeal is more conditional. When Trump talks and acts like a 4channer, he is celebrated.
The change to r/all comes days after Reddit’s news-gathering subreddit, r/news, devolved into chaos during the developing story of the Orlando shooting on Sunday. Redditors looking to the popular subreddit for the latest information on the massacre at a Florida gay club were instead dragged into a storm of accusations and infighting.
Things really kicked off when r/The_Donald accused the moderators of the news community of deliberately censoring their contributions, particularly posts linking to reports that the Orlando shooter was a Muslim. That report was of interest... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
But the battle was more or less won: Instead of coverage of the Orlando shootings, r/The_Donald managed to get a whole bunch of Redditors to talk about them.
“Does that sound like someone familiar?” asked a moderator of r/EnoughTrumpSpam in an email to The Intersect. The moderator asked to remain anonymous and has a username that is unprintable in The Washington Post. They graciously agreed to be referred to as B. Smack.
The subreddit r/EnoughTrumpSpam has been trying to draw attention to Trump’s dominance of Reddit’s top posts, an effort that caught on with a vengeance after the Orlando incident. “It is really frustrating for redditors to watch Donald Trump supporters vote manipulate Trump‘s racist demagoguery to the front page,” the group said.
Among other things, B. Smack was frustrated with the “extremely low-quality” sourcing of the news articles that have ascended through Reddit’s ranks, thanks to r/The_Donald. Those include “Kremlin propaganda pieces from Sputnik and RT, and unsubstantiated stories from hard, hard right sources like Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, Brietbart, the Washington Times, or the Daily Caller.”
“r/the_donald is not letting through any other content,” the moderator added, “People can’t find anything interesting that is trending in the Hot queue because it is just Trump Spam.”
The Redditors trying to stop r/The_Donald might be delighted by the apocalyptic fury about Reddit’s decision that dominated the board this week. But one longtime moderator, dylan_w (formerly CisWhiteMaelstrom), said that while he knows Reddit is trying to directly hurt his subreddit, he isn’t too worried that they’ll actually succeed.

>>49256 One shot in the leg is a lawsuit against you for cruel and unusual punishment. Also, If you have to draw a gun, you're using it to defend life. Yours or someone elses. A rock is a deadly weapon, if the man will not stop when asked to by police, and continues to move forward, he shows intent. He has the capability to kill, this the rock, opportunity to do so, by moving forward, and shows intent by not stopping. If he gets within a certain distance, the cop can use lethal force to put the man down.

>>49256 They are trained: not to believe in movie bullcrap where one shot in the leg stops someone. They are shown video footage of skinny kids breaking handcuffs and ripping some schmuck's eye out. Videos of people with four rounds in them climbing out of windows and running down the street to punch a hole in some old lady. No drugs, just adrenaline. You put someone down, right down, there's no moderate use of firearms. Center mass, as many shots as needed to stop them moving and it's a last resort to save life.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sundaysignedan executive order that orders state agencies to divest themselves of companies and organizations that support the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against the State of Israel.
“In New York, we lead by example. We are also a place of action. We want to take immediate action because we want Israel to know that we are on their side,” Cuomo said during a speech, attended by Jewish leaders, at The Harvard Club. “If you boycott against Israel, New York will boycott you.”

Nothing special about it as summer solstice is when Earth is farthest from the sun. The so-called "supermoon" occurs at winter solstice ad makes a marginal difference in the brightness of the full moon compared to the average night.
OP's picture is misleading, designed for clickbait. "Strawberry" is a seasonal term and has nothing to do with color. Last night was simply the smallest full moon of the year for many decades, but it's an unnoticeable difference from any other June full moon, and cloud and temperature layers as well as relative...
