Although the media has run with the narrative that “#GamerGate is about the harassment of women,” one look at who is pro- and anti-GamerGate reveals the truth.

Here are some truly vile people. Each of these claims are sourced. Click on the little blue text to learn more. (They are blue when I type the post but red on the screen. Whatever the case, “Trust but verify.” All of these claims are supported by the evidence.)

Jian Ghomeshi – Jian Ghomeshi is a former CBC radio host, Women’s Study major, and rapist. Although Ghomeshi hasn’t been convicted of rape, he has said before women do not lie about rape. It seems fitting to hold Mr. Ghomeshi to his words. Moreover, Ghomeshi’s case isn’t he-said-she-said. It’s more like he-said-8-shes-said, as 8 different women have come forward. (UPDATE: 15 women have come forward with accusations of rape and assault against anti-#GamerGate hero Ghomeshi.)

Arthur Chu – Arthur Chu either covered up a rape or refused to report one. In his words: “I have known nerdy male stalkers, and, yes, nerdy male rapists. I’ve known situations where I knew something was going on but didn’t say anything—because I didn’t want to stick my neck out, because some vile part of me thought that this kind of thing was normal.”

Geordie Tait – Geordie Tait wished the Holocaust on anyone who has ever posted in a hashtag on Twitter. You can find his full rant on his Facebook page.

Chris Kluwe – Chris Kluwe said he knew of “underage girls”  in a “compromising situation” with football players. He has refused to help these underage girls find justice.

Randi HarperRandi Harper falsely accused me of making a rape threat. False accusations are never OK, right? Ms. Harper also has a criminal record, having been in jail multiple times. Harper has also admitted to having a drug problem and once had a Twitter meltdown after taking too many benzos. (Harper appears to have deleted those incriminating Tweets.)

Zoe QuinnZoe Quinn committed perjury in her quest to obtain an unconstitutional restraining order. Quinn also attempted to get Mike Cernovich Swatted. Quinn also emotionally abused her boyfriend, although that doesn’t count because men cannot ever be the victim of domestic violence or emotional abuse.

Margaret Pless – Margaret Pless is an unpaid Daily Kos intern. She posted my name, address, and full “dox” on the Internet. She also filed and incited others to file false police reports with the LAPD.

Hugo SchwyzerHugo Schwyzer attempted to murder his ex-girlfriend. Trivia: Anita Sarkeesian built Hugo’s webpage.

Anil DashAnil Dash advocates doxing, that is, he supports posting the names and addresses of his ideological opponents online in an effort to intimidate and harass them. Anil Dash also sent an Internet hate mob, who ultimately made rape and death threats, to attack a girl who made a bad joke on Twitter.

If #GamerGate is about the harassment of women, why are the bad guys opposing #GamerGate? Could they be projecting their own desires onto #GamerGate?

Ma to reaffirm ‘1992 Consensus’ on anniversary of 1st negotiations

http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/china-taiwan-relations/2015/04/27/434604/Ma-to.htm

President Ma Ying-jeou is set to deliver a speech on April 29, on the 22nd anniversary of the first meeting between the Kuomintang (KMT) government and communist China, in which he will reaffirm the “1992 Consensus.”

Ma’s speech seeks to commemorate the meeting commonly referred to as the Koo-Wang meeting. The meeting, conducted from April 27 to 29 in 1993, was also the first political meeting and negotiation between the KMT and mainland China since the ruling party first retreated to Taiwan.

The event was held between then-Straits Exchange Foundation (海峽交流基金會) Chairman Koo Chen-fu (辜振甫) and former Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (海峽兩岸關係協會) President Wang Daohan (汪道涵). Due to the sensitivity of cross-strait relations back then, the meeting was held in Singapore thanks to the help of the late Lee Kuan Yew (李光耀).

According to the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC, 大陸委員會), to commemorate the meeting, which established a milestone in cross-straits relations, Ma will visit the MAC on April 29. Using the opportunity, the president will reportedly deliver an important speech that reaffirms the “1992 Consensus,” an agreement stating that both Taiwan and mainland China define China in their own ways while both still recognize that there is only one China.

Ma will reportedly stress the importance of the consensus, so that cross-strait relations can continue their steady development and create beneficial opportunities for the nation, and also aim for Taiwan to receive recognition both domestically and internationally. Ma will also address the progress of cross-strait relations over the past seven years of his administration.

Ma’s Speech Will Be Delivered before Chu-Xi Meeting

While certain individuals have questioned the intentions of Ma delivering a speech on the topic prior to the upcoming meeting between KMT Chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫) and China leader Xi Jinping (習近平), officials from the Taiwan Office of the President have stated that Chu has declared that he will conduct his talks based upon Taiwan’s definition of the “1992 Consensus.”

The officials said that Ma’ reaffirmation of the consensus will also show the nation the ruling party’s policies and intentions of peace. In contrast, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has yet to clarify the DPP’s policies regarding cross-straits relations, and should do so instead of displaying an unclear position, the officials said.

Miami Assistant Police Chief Criticized for Not Putting Hand Over Heart During Pledge of Allegiance

How horrible must your life be if you get irrationally offended every time someone doesn’t salute the flag to your liking during the Pledge of Allegiance?

In Miami, Assistant Chief Anita Najiy — the highest-ranking female cop in the city — kept her arms at her side during the ritual instead of putting a hand over her heart. Now, the head of the Miami police union is flipping out because ‘Murica.

Fraternal Order of Police President Javier Ortiz wants Najiy reprimanded for not saluting the flag or covering her heart during the Pledge of Allegiance.

“Since she clearly has no respect for the flag or the United States, on behalf of the Fraternal Order of Police, I am requesting that Assistant Chief Najiy is removed as the commander of the MPD Honor Guard Detail,” Ortiz said in a letter Monday to Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes.

“If she isn’t loyal to the United States of America, what country is she loyal and shows allegiance to?” he asked.

As much as I’d like to say Najiv was protesting the Pledge, she was actually just following protocol:

Police Maj. Delrish Moss produced a section of the conduct code for U.S. military personnel, which he says supercedes police code. It reads: “When in uniform, indoors, stand at attention, remain silent, and face the flag.”

So she was following military rules… and that, in Ortiz’s eyes, makes her un-American. What he has against her, I don’t know, but even if she sat down during the Pledge, it wouldn’t make her any less patriotic. If you equate being a True American with participating in a mindless ritual, your priorities need adjustment.

Thankfully, it looks like no one is taking Ortiz seriously. After all, he’s the same guy who went to Ferguson, Missouri to show solidarity… with the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown.

Montreal school struggles to explain why its students join ISIS

http://www.homelandsecuritynewswire.com/dr20150424-montreal-school-struggles-to-explain-why-its-students-join-isis

Just months after five students at Montreal’s Collège de Maisonneuveleft Canada to join the Islamic State in Syria, a young couple, El Mahdi Jamali and Sabrine Djaermane, who attended the same school, were arrested last Tuesday for what police allege were plans to commit terrorist acts. Since the arrest, school officials have met with terrorism and extremism experts to help analyze if the school itself had been a breeding ground for extremists. Some locals familiar with the school have pointed fingers at Adil Charkaoui, an Islamic leader in Montreal who rents the school’s facilities for a weekend Muslim youth group, and was once probed by federal agents as a suspected al-Qaeda sleeper agent.

Just months after five students at Montreal’s Collège de Maisonneuve left Canada to join the Islamic State in Syria, a young couple, El Mahdi Jamali and Sabrine Djaermane, who attended the same school, were arrested last Tuesday for what police allege were plans to commit terrorist acts. Since the arrest, school officials have met with terrorism and extremism experts to help analyze if the school itself had been a breeding ground for extremists.

Some locals familiar with the school have pointed fingers at Adil Charkaoui, an Islamic leader in Montreal who rents the school’s facilities for a weekend Muslim youth group, and was once probed by federal agents as a suspected al-Qaeda sleeper agent.

When school officials learned that five Maisonneuve students traveled to Syria to join ISIS, they immediately encouraged faculty to take courses on identifying signs of radicalization in an effort to prevent other students from being radicalized. “It’s an attempt to give some meaning to what has happened. If we don’t have that it would be a total depression. It’s powerlessness,” said Brigitte Desjardins, a spokesperson for Maisonneuve.

According to the Toronto Star, school officials consulted with police and radicalization experts in order to find out if the school had a terrorist recruiter at work on campus or if school faculty could have foreshadowed the actions of the five students. “There were no signs at all,” Desjardins concluded.

Some locals still believe Charkaoui played a role in the students’ departure, after revelations that several of them had enrolled in Arabic-language and Islamic instruction courses which he operates. Maisonneuve initially suspended its rental contract with Charkaoui, but then allowed him to resume courses under the supervision of an Arab-language observer.

Collège Rosemont, another Montreal school at which Charkaouri operated youth kickboxing and karate courses, canceled its rental contract with him last week, because it found that links on Charkaouri’s Web site led to extremist material.

Of the five Maisonneuve students who left, two were girls — Shayma Senouci and Ouardia Kadem; and another two were their boyfriends, Desjardins revealed. Imad Rafai, one of the students, wanted to become a doctor. His social media profile revealed that he had been moved by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and admired the work of Doctors Without Borders, the humanitarian group working on the front lines against the Ebola outbreak. On 23 October 2014, Rafai shared on his social media profile, a story about Canadian Muslim leaders paying tribute to Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, who was killed at the National War Memorial in Ottawa by homegrown terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.

On social media, Jamali, who was arrested last week, frequently mentioned the plight of Muslims around the world. “Mali, Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Burma … murders by the thousands and we don’t care,” he wrote on his Facebook page on 15 April 2013, referring to conflicts around the world where Muslims were dying in large numbers. “But Boston, Oh-la-la, a few injured. Get out of here you hypocrites.”

A number of Canadians who traveled to Syria to join ISIS appeared to have been searching for a cause, said Desjardins. “What we know of those who left is that they left to save the world. They didn’t leave to wage war. It was with good intentions,” she said.
