I can’t believe I missed this #PantsuitPower flashmob last week, but luckily there is video of it.
Over 170 dancers – all dressed in Hillary’s signature pantsuits – met at Union Square, New York’s prime spot for political action, and just danced, danced, danced.
“I wanted to bring some kind of humanity to her campaign, because I think humanity and love and humor tend to get lost when we’re in the heat of all of this,” the organizer, Celia Rowlson-Hall, told the Washington Post.
While we all fell asleep during yesterday’s vice-presidential debate, a much more fun fight was going on – the Battle of the Frogs.
You might have heard about Pepe, a cartoon meme that is especially popular among anti-Semitic and racist Twitter trolls. But luckily he isn’t the only green animal on the block, and the opposition has recruited Kermit for their fight. #ImWithKer
Daniel Radcliffe recently compared Donald Trump with Voldemort, but attested the Dark Lord a purer ideology. Meanwhile, J.K. Rowling herself said that He Who Must Not Be Named is “nowhere near as bad” as the Republican presidential candidate.
While Donald Trump at times appeared almost poised during last night’s debate, there is no question that he has a history of hateful rhetoric.
And it probably comes at no surprise, that this hateful rhetoric has found a lot of copy-cats on Twitter.
One favorite target among these Twitter trolls are Jewish journalists. And it didn’t matter if the journalists were liberal, conservative or even really Jewish, the so-called “alt-right” movement attacked them all.
I have recently compiled an interactive timeline of these attacks for the Forward, that you can look at here. For more about the scope of anti-Semitic trolling, click here.
