It is said that Millennials are self-absorbed, but it turns out their idol is, too.
President Obama spoke to a group of young people in Berlin on Saturday, and during his speech and Q & A, he talked about himself a total of 270 times.
According to the president’s remarks, the Obama Foundation is making a push into Europe by supporting community organizers there to affect governmental change. (Hello, collusion? Influencing foreign governments?)
At a Berlin security conference, hardline neocon Jamie Fly appeared to claim some credit for the recent coordinated purge of alternative media…
This October, Facebook and Twitter deleted the accounts of hundreds of users, including many alternative media outlets maintained by American users. Among those wiped out in the coordinated purge were popular sites that scrutinized police brutality and U.S. interventionism, like The Free Thought Project, Anti-Media, and Cop Block, along with the pages of journalists like Rachel Blevins.
Angela Merkel’s coalition government in Berlin looks more fragile than ever after voters in the state of Bavaria roundly rejected the chancellor’s allied parties at a regional election this weekend.
The result was likened to a “political earthquake” and “landslide” by experts.
The Christian Social Union (CSU), Merkel’s Bavarian sister party, saw its worst election result since 1950 on Sunday and lost its long-held majority, while the Green party and far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party saw their vote share increase.
Organizers of a gay pride event in Berlin have reportedly banned the populist-nationalist Alternative For Germany (AfD) party from participating.
Junge Alternative, the youth wing of anti-mass migration AfD, applied for stall space at Christoper Street Day, an annual street party commemorating the 1969 New York Stonewall riots, but were rejected by coordinators who claimed the party creates a “climate of fear and exclusion.”
David Eckert, head of Junge Alternative’s Berlin chapter, took to Facebook in a scathing video post in which he included back-and-forth emails between himself and event organizers, whom he blasted for being intolerant of others (including homosexuals) with differing viewpoints on immigration policy and Islam.
