IKEA sacked a homophobe who told co-workers gay people should be killed. Now, it’s being threatened with a lawsuit
The former IKEA employee, identified as Tomasz K, said he was fired last year after he refused to take down a homophobic comment he posted on the firm’s internal site.
“Acceptance and promotion of homosexuality and other deviations is scandalous,” he wrote, alongside several anti-gay Bible verses.
IKEA said at the time that the employee had expressed an opinion “in a way that could affect the rights and dignity of LGBT + people”.
“In addition, the employee actually used quotes from the Old Testament about death, blood in the context of what fate should meet homosexual people,” it added. “Many employees raised by this entry contacted our HR department.”

Nevada congressman admits to affair with intern after podcast exposé
A married Nevada congressman has admitted having a longstanding affair with a former intern calling herself “Love Jones” — after she exposed him in an explosive series of podcasts.
Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) — who had previously been Nevada’s first African-American State Senate Majority Leader — came forward after Gabriela Linder detailed the affair in a podcast, “Mistress for Congress.”
It started in 2009 when she was a 21-year-old intern at then-Senator Harry Reid’s Nevada office — and they only broke ties in April, the same month she started her podcast, she told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

NYC police union warns the 'city will fall apart' if cops are made to enforce social distancing
A New York City police union has had enough of the coronavirus social distancing enforcement, and warned city leaders that continued efforts to enforce social distancing could cause the city to "fall apart."
The statement from Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch issued Monday accused Mayor Bill de Blasio of putting officers in a bad position with policies that are unreasonable to enforce.
"The situation is untenable: the NYPD needs to get cops out of the social distancing enforcement business altogether," the statement read. "The cowards who run this city have given us nothing but vague guidelines and mixed messages, leaving the cops on the street corners to fend for ourselves. Nobody has a right to interfere with a police action. But now that the inevitable backlash has arrived, they are once again throwing us under the bus."

Home Secretary Priti Patel admits 7% increase in knife crime is 'appalling' and says London Mayor Sadiq Khan 'should be doing more'
Priti Patel yesterday conceded the latest rise in knife crime was 'appalling' - as she vowed a tough new approach.
In a frank admission, the Home Secretary said that an overall fall in recorded crime could not mask the misery caused by a sharp rise in knife offences, which are at a record high.
Official figures released last month showed that knife crimes in England and Wales rose by 7 per cent last year to 45,627.
The figure represents a 49 per cent rise on 2011, when comparable records began.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Miss Patel said the figures were 'terrible' but vowed a tough new approach which would mean thugs caught with a knife 'going down'.

Democratic rep says pandemic re-opening is targeted to put blacks at risk
A Democratic lawmaker said that officials were opening up businesses that blacks use to put them at risk in order to let them spend their coronavirus relief checks.
Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) made the comments during an online videoconference in support of Joe Biden's presidential campaign.
"Let me just say very quickly on them opening things, you know they opened up the beauty salons and barber shops, the bowling alleys and the movie theaters. When they open up the Country Clubs and the tanning spas, then I'll know it's safe for the rest of us," she said.
"That's first," Fudge added, chuckling.
"Because they just opening up things that black people go to because they know we've got these checks and they want us to spend them," she continued.
"They don't care about our safety, that's why when they start to open things they go to," Fudge concluded, "then I'll understand it's time for them to open up some things for us."
Woman Records Racists She’s Met On Omegle During the Pandemic
Sophie Wang went on Omegle to find new friends during the pandemic. Instead, she was met with racist verbal comments, asking her if she ate bats and was accused of making the coronavirus.
There has been a rise in racist acts and xenophobia towards Asians and Asian Americans during the pandemic, and Sophie is one of many who have been calling them out.
One Omegle user called her “Ling Ling.” Another slammed his hand on the table and said he hated her for making coronavirus when she wouldn’t show her chest. Another user said there would be “no more of her kind” and he demonstrated that anyone with slitted eyes would be disintegrated by nuclear substance from “American nuclear missiles” sent to all of Asia.
