Shut down all police movies and TV shows. Now.
For a century, Hollywood has been collaborating with police departments, telling stories that whitewash police shootings and valorizing an action-hero style of policing over the harder, less dramatic work of building relationships with the communities cops are meant to serve and protect. There’s a reason for that beyond a reactionary streak hiding below the industry’s surface liberalism. Purely from a dramatic perspective, crime makes a story seem consequential, investigating crime generates action, and solving crime provides for a morally and emotionally satisfying conclusion.
The result is an addiction to stories that portray police departments as more effective than they actually are; crime as more prevalent than it actually is; and police use of force as consistently justified. There are always gaps between reality and fiction, but given what policing in America has too often become, Hollywood’s version of it looks less like fantasy and more like complicity.

Yale psychiatrist Bandy Lee: Lockdown protesters resemble “child soldiers” and “urban gangs”
A Yale psychiatrist has warned that pro-Trump lockdown protesters, who exhibit similar psychology as "child soldiers," could quickly turn into "armed troops in the streets" if the president loses his re-election bid.
Lee has also served as a project group leader for the World Health Organization Violence Prevention Alliance. She told Salon that Trump's recent call to "liberate" Democratic-led states was a dog whistle to his core supporters.
"Subconsciously, it is a loyalty test for the people," Lee said. "In Africa, where I did some ethnographic work, child soldiers would be recruited and made to kill a family member to demonstrate their allegiance to the government and not to the family. Similarly, in urban gangs in America, one may be challenged to kill a police officer to prove one's willingness to uphold gang rules over societal rules.
"When Donald Trump suggests that the virus be taken as a 'hoax', that people gather in churches or that people protest for their own sacrifice, he is actually testing people's loyalty to the 'laws' of his mind over the laws of nature, or even impulse for survival. The more he abuses them, the greater their devotion grows, since the psychological cost of admitting their mistake is ever higher — and so it becomes easier to dig a well of unreality than to see the obvious truth.
Former Pope: Same-Sex Marriage Comes From the Antichrist
The former Pope Benedict XVI has called same-sex marriage a product of the Antichrist and said society has become so hostile to Christian doctrine that it will shun anyone who opposes equal marriage rights.
The statement comes in a new authorized biography of Benedict by German journalist Peter Seewald. Titled Benedict XVI: The Biography: Volume One, it came out Monday in Germany, the former pope’s native country.

Turkish president Erdogan backs Muslim cleric who claims ‘evil’ homosexuals spread disease: ‘He’s absolutely right’
Ali Erbas, who is the head of Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet), used a sermon at the start of Ramadan on Friday to call on people to “work together” against homosexuality.
He said: “Islam curses homosexuality. Homosexuality brings with it illnesses and decay to lineage. Let’s work together to protect people from such evil.”
The inflammatory remarks were condemned by LGBT+ and human rights groups, but this has only prompted a bigger row in the country – with anti-LGBT+ figures rushing out to defend the state official.

Lululemon Official Promotes Racist T-Shirt, Gets Fired for Being Racist
At the risk of stating the obvious, fashion has a long history of doing racist shit, and the outbreak of covid-19 has emboldened racists to become more vocal and casual with their racism. When those forces of intolerance combine, news like this emerges: According to Reuters, Trevor Fleming, a senior global art director for Lululemon, shared an Instagram link to an astonishingly racist t-shirt with a thinly veiled anti-Asian sentiment. Designed by an artist named Jess Sluder, the shirt features a Chinese takeout box with bat wings, and was labeled “Bat Fried Rice” on his webstore before being removed. On Instagram, Sluder posted the product with the caption, “Where did COVID-19 come from? Nothing is certain, but we know a bat was involved. Beginning today, my limited edition #quarantees are now available. Link in bio or DM for details…Thank you for your support and sense of humor! #humornothat #batfriedrice.”
Reuters reports that Fleming’s promotion of Sluder’s design resulted in the hashtag #LululemonInsultsChina, viewed over 200 million times on the social media app Weibo. That quickly translated to Lululemon’s official Instagram, where commenters expressed outrage over Fleming sharing the tee.

Gay men in Morocco living in terror after trans influencer urged her followers to use dating apps to hunt them and out them
Naofal Moussa, also known as Sofia Talouni, is a trans woman based in Turkey who – before her verified account was deleted on Friday – had more than 627,000 Instagram followers.
Starting on Monday this week, she used her nightly Instagram Live series – watched by over 100,000 people – to instruct the straight women following her to download gay dating apps from the app store and use them to find gay men in their vicinity.
Any form of same-sex intimacy – including kissing – is illegal in Morocco and punishable by up to three years in prison.
There is also no law against harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Multiple gay men PinkNews spoke to described how they are now living in a state of absolute terror: watching other gay men get outed on social media, beaten up by their families, kicked out of their homes, disappear and, in several, unverified, cases, die by suicide.

The last Chick-fil-A in the UK just closed for good
The last Chick-fil-A restaurant in the U.K. definitively closed its doors this past month.
Last year, a Chick-fil-A restaurant opened at the Oracle shopping center in Reading, England. This led to protests in October because of the fast food chain’s years of donations to anti-LGBTQ causes.
Because of the protests, Oracle said that it would not renew Chick-fil-A’s lease after its initial six-month period was up. On March 20, the restaurant closed for good.
Group Behind NYC Central Park Tent Hospital Makes Workers Adhere to ‘Statement of Faith’ That Says Gays Will Burn in Hell
Samaritan’s Purse, the group funding and erecting the makeshift coronavirus tent hospital in New York City’s Central Park, makes all workers, including health care providers, “read and adhere” to a statement of faith that says gay people will burn in Hell. Samaritan’s Purse is run by “Christian” homophobe Franklin Graham.
Gothamist reports: “Graham, the son of prominent minister Billy Graham, has specifically sought to recruit Christian medical staff to the Central Park facility. According to the group’s website, all volunteers, including health care workers, should read and adhere to a statement of faith, in which marriage is defined as ‘exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female’ and the unrighteous are sentenced to ‘everlasting punishment in hell.'”

Franklin Graham is suing an event venue for refusing to let him spread anti-LGBTQ rhetoric
After a Glasgow venue canceled an event hosted by Franklin Graham, the notoriously anti-LGBTQ preacher has started legal proceedings to sue for “religious discrimination.” The minister regularly bashes LGBTQ people on social media and from the pulpit.
Graham’s claim of discrimination comes after he has spent years defending anti-LGBTQ bakery owners’ rights to turn away LGBTQ couples. Graham has repeatedly praised the business owners for standing up for their private beliefs.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) is claiming the venue, the SSE Hydro, is being discriminatory against Christians by refusing to give the pastor a platform to spread anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. Graham’s May 30th event was canceled after the venue’s primary shareholder, the Glasgow City Council, voiced strong concerns about hosting Graham because it was likely hate speech and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric would be used at the event.

The doll in the couple’s arms, placed there to represent a child, was adorned with the face of Nenad Stazic, a left-wing, Social Democratic Party member and a member of the Croatian parliament.
Polish court says campaign that linked homosexuality and paedophilia was “informative”
A Polish court has ruled in favour of a campaign that linked homosexuality and paedophilia, claiming it was “informative” and that it raised awareness.
Polish lawyer, Bartlomiej Ciazynski, filed a suit against the Polish non-governmental organisation, Fundacja Pro, after they launched the homophobic campaign.
The group’s campaign featured people driving around in vans with the banner “Paedophilia is 20 times more common in homosexuals. They want to teach your children. Stop them!”
Ciazynski said the campaign “insulted, slandered and violated the dignity” of the LGBTQ community, but Judge Adam Macinski, a district judge in Wroclaw disagreed.
In his ruling, he said the campaign “should be considered as having an informative and social dimension” saying it highlighted the issue of paedophilia.
Rightwing pundit says his “Faggots are Maggots” tour was “inspired by” Donald Trump
A rightwing pundit said that he will be touring the country to show that “faggots are maggots,” and he said that he was inspired by none other than Donald Trump.
Mike Heath of Helping Hands Ministries appeared on Dave Daubenmire’s livestream last week to announce his upcoming speaking tour. Daubenmire himself has engaged in anti-LGBTQ rhetoric in the past, and he has been honored by his local Republican Party.
“I’m going to do a world tour,” Heath said on the program, reading from prepared remarks. “The theme is ‘Faggots are Maggots.’”

Sidewalk Preachers Say They Want to 'Take a Sword' to Gays
In a new video posted to YouTube, preachers from a religious sect have expressed a desire to put a sword to queer people.
Captured on the streets of Dalston in East London, the video was posted on a YouTube channel for The Church of Yahawashi. The organization is an extremist sect of Black Hebrew Israelites. In the video, the preachers say that their main channel was recently deactivated. They then went on to threaten LGBTQ+ people.
“There’s a lot of stupid people here,” the main preacher in the footage says, referring to Dalston. “Because we’ve just come out of the — I don’t know if it’s a pub or a slash restaurant. We had two faggots in there that we’ve had to keep eyes on because certain brothers, most of the brothers, no actually all of the brothers, we don’t like faggots.” Brothers surrounding him chime in with their agreement.
