Is This Something?

Below the fold for the "Is this something?" clip.

Meanwhile:

The teen who blew the whistle on Anthony Weiner's latest (we think...) sexting episode speaks to the press:

"I knew that Hillary Clinton would be running for president in the year 2016," she tells Inside Edition. "I wanted to see if Anthony was still up to the same antics."

She direct messaged him: "Hello, I'm a huge fan," and Weiner snapped to attention, responding within "minutes," she said.

Weiner soon moved past niceties, she said.

"He called me attractive," she told the magazine, and wrote her, "You are kinda gorgeous" and "Your body is pretty insane." Many of Weiner's messages were too lewd to repeat, she said.

The teen also says that one day, over Skype, Weiner asked her to undress. Inside Edition isn’t letting on yet whether the teen says if she complied.

She says she blew the whistle after Weiner texted her that creepy picture of him with his kid.

Hillary Clinton thinks that the message of Orwell's 1984 is Trust Your Benevolent Media-Government Overclass. Pretty close!

A couple of weeks ago progs were claiming it was insane to ask if antifa and Black Lives Matter would next come for the statues of Jefferson and Washington. This was obviously insane and deranged to ask, because Trump had asked it.

Well, guess what -- they came for the Thomas Jefferson statue at UVA. You know, the one that antifa claimed they were "protecting" from hypothetical harm from Nazi contamination.

Mostly lost in the general hysteria surrounding President Trump’s post-Charlottesville press conference a month ago was an excellent question he posed. Regarding the growing demand nationwide to tear down monuments to the Confederate States of America, he asked: "I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?"

His remarks were characterized by historians as "absurd" and "unacceptable" and "ignorant" and dismissed as a "red herring." At The Daily Beast, John Avlon called Trump's comparison "immoral" and "dangerous." At Slate, Jamelle Bouie claimed Trump's question was "dumb," arguing that statues of Washington and Jefferson were safe because "the reason we memorialize them is not because of their slaveholding."


Well. Earlier this week around 100 "students, faculty and community members" gathered at of the University of Virginia and "[covered] a statue of Thomas Jefferson in a black shroud…adorning it with signs that dubbed the former president a 'racist' and a 'rapist.'" The protesters derided the statue as "an emblem of white supremacy," and demanded that it be "re-contextualized," lambasting the people who "fetishize the legacy of Jefferson," calling on the community to 'recognize Jefferson as a rapist, racist, and slave owner."

As George Orwell often said, always put your faith in mobs and angry racist propagandists.

Now, for that "Is this something?"
