Riots, Not Protests: The Media Is Gaslighting You / Opinion
Bad-faith media members tell you civil unrest in American cities are really peaceful protests. And when they do actually acknowledge violence, some media frame it as a direct result of President Donald Trump.
You are being lied to. It's an audacious attempt to gaslight the American public, as some media continue their effort to help defeat President Trump.
The Pacific Northwest is under siege. Nightly, riots overtake Portland. In Seattle, there were three costly and dangerous riots over the course of just a week. People are getting injured, and both businesses and public buildings are being destroyed or vandalized. And the media is pretending it's not really happening.
I've covered the demonstrations and they're anything but peaceful. But you don't have to be in Seattle or Portland to understand what's going on. A casual Twitter search yields video after video after video after video of the violence.
So why are we being told the violence isn't happening? It's part of a strategic campaign to push back against Trump's re-election.

Keke Palmer Responds to August Alsina: 'I Feel Attacked, But It's Not About Me' (UPDATE)
Keke Palmer appears to have responded to August Alsina's scathing tweets via Instagram, writing "I want to post screenshots, but I won’t."
Seems like Keke's taking the high road on this one, adding that she'd spare the singer by recognizing that he's probably going through it right now given this whole Red Table Talk situation.
"Yes girl. August was never my man lol," she wrote. "That’s why you’re still reaching to this day to figure out nothing."
"U absolutely right.I was NEVER ur man," he responded. "You could possibly never shortie. It seems u mad u got curved,

August Alsina Speaks on Past Alleged Relationship With Jada Pinkett Smith, Claims Will 'Gave Me His Blessing'
August Alsina is getting candid about his alleged romance with Jada Pinkett Smith.
Relationship rumors have swirled around the pair for quite some time, with some convinced that Alsina and Jada had a secret affair. Alsina's 2019 track "Nunya" fueled the speculation, as he included the lines: "You got me feeling like it was an act, you're just an actress/Putting on a show 'cause you don't want the world to know." The track's official video also featured a shot of a text message from a love interest listed as "Koren," which just so happens to be Jada's birth-given middle name.
Alsina would go on to deny the relationship rumors and insisted "Nunya" was not about the Girls Trip actress.
"To Clarity, The Song is not about Jada. It’s simply JUST A SONG , & a free artistic expression of a made up narrative already put in place by its ORIGINAL format," he wrote on Instagram, as reported by XXL. "Thankyou for all of your love around the music & more is to come but please know that Me & my BEST (@jadapinkettsmith )are good!!! & We will always be, 4Life!"
Alsina is now changing his tune.

Anti-LGBTQ hate group is behind bid to reopen churches & endanger communities
The anti-LGBTQ hate group Liberty Counsel, one of the groups that serve as the legal defense arm of the religious right, is helping to lead the push to reopen churches during the coronavirus pandemic.
The effort by evangelicals endangers the lives of parishioners and community members who would come in contact with the potentially infected churchgoers who had gathered in large groups.
The group is calling for churches to “ReOpen” on Sunday, May 3 following several instances of far-right ministers refusing to shut down services as part of measures banning large gatherings in a desperate attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
A Christian evangelist who mocked the response to the novel coronavirus pandemic has died after likely being infected while preaching on the streets of New Orleans. A Virginia minister who defied lockdown orders and vowed to keep preaching until he was arrested or died, saying he was protected by God, died less than a week later from COVID-19.

In a video posted to social media Saturday, police officers at the 145th Street subway station in Harlem appear to be aggressively dragging a visibly distraught child away from a woman later identified as his mother as people witnessing the spectacle expressed anger and concern for the child’s wellbeing. The boy’s crime? Selling snacks to passengers on the train.

White House official blames “radical left” on rise in anti-LGBTQ hate groups
A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) found that the number of anti-LGBTQ hate groups in the United States has increased by 43% from 49 to 70. This came at the same time that the number of hate groups operating in the United States actually fell from 1,020 to 940.
The report said the rise could’ve been “possibly fueled by continued anti-LGBTQ sentiment and policy emanating from government officials” especially those from within the Tr*mp administration.
The report says: “Anti-LGBTQ groups have become intertwined with the Trump administration, and — after years of civil rights progress and growing acceptance among the broader American public — anti-LGBTQ sentiment within the Republican Party is rising.
“Though Trump promised during his campaign to be a ‘real friend’ to the LGBTQ community, he has fully embraced anti-LGBTQ hate groups and their agenda of dismantling federal protections and resources for LGBTQ people.”

The exodus of the wealthy from cities reveals the problems with individualism
New York’s gilded Upper East Side has been rendered a ghost town. The tourists are at home; the shops are shuttered, with their shelves bereft. Many of its residents, meanwhile, are as far away from the new center of a global pandemic as their wealth can take them—in the country, by the shore, on a hilltop, virtually anywhere else.
It’s the same story all over the world: The wealthy are experiencing coronavirus differently. Some have gone to their second or third homes or to visit family members in more remote locations. (In the interests of full transparency, I have spent the past two weeks staying with my mother at her home in rural Connecticut.) Others have paid thousands for short-term rentals: In France and the UK, sleepy country towns are overrun with weekenders hunkering down for the long haul, while entire hotels in Ireland have been bought out by families fleeing cities. In the US, Airbnb saw year-on-year revenue in rural areas increased by $280 million in March 2020, or almost 30%, while revenue in urban areas fell by $75 million, according to data from AirDNA. In the same period, bookings in Manhattan and New Jersey fell by 66%, while bookings in some Cape Cod towns have soared by as much as 600%.
Commentators widely agree that this is selfish, unfair, and in some cases actively dangerous. Writing in the Atlantic, travel journalist Nathan Thornburgh warns prospective emigrants that by leaving now, “you are nakedly prioritizing your comfort and peace of mind over the physical health of others.” Even tourism officials have asked would-be visitors to stay home: “This is something I thought I’d never have to say throughout my tourism career, but please stay home at this time,” Carol Chaplin, CEO of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority, said in a press release.

NBA star Dwight Howard denies gay rumor
US professional basketball player Dwight Howard denied rumors he’s gay.
The proclamation comes about after a man named Masin Elije claimed the two had a sexual relationship. Eljie also alleged Dwight offered him ‘hush money’ when things ended.
‘I’m not gay,’ Howard told Kristine Leahy from FS1’s Fair Game. ‘There’s people who have different problems in life and they have to hide. They have to put on the mask every day, and it’s like, I don’t wanna wear no mask, I just wanna be.’
