First Responder Mom Slams Son for Throwing Large Chicago Party Captured in Viral Video
The mother of a 26-year-old man who threw a crowded house party at their home in Chicago says she’s “astounded” by her son’s actions — and that she was out working her job as a first responder when it happened.
The woman, who asked to remain anonymous because of her occupation, told NBC news station WMAQ that she had no clue her son had thrown the party Friday night, and only realized what happened when police arrived three days later to issue her a citation.

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.

Christians Were Fined $500 For Attending A Drive-In Church — The Trump Administration Is Supporting Them In Court
The Justice Department jumped into a federal lawsuit in Mississippi on Tuesday to support parishioners who had been fined $500 for attending a drive-in church service, demonstrating the Trump administration’s willingness to challenge what it sees as onerous local lockdown rules during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Baptist Temple Church in Greenville, Mississippi, had alleged in a complaint last week that local police overstepped their bounds by enforcing a ban on drive-in church services and trying to “bust up” the parking lot congregation. Worshippers were inside vehicles with their windows rolled up while listening to a broadcast of the sermon inside when eight police officers began issuing tickets, including to the pastor.
The Trump administration filed what’s called a statement of interest in the case, showing the government’s views about the general legal principles at play, contending parishioners retain certain constitutional rights to assemble and exercise free speech despite the pandemic.
Charity compares homosexuality to drug addiction to justify rejecting LGBTQ coronavirus volunteers
An organization has been refusing to allow LGBTQ people – including medical professionals – to volunteer at its New York City tent hospital set up to help people afflicted with coronavirus.
The group’s president is defending the policy by comparing homosexuality to alcoholism, drug addiction, and people who volunteer just “to pick up girls.”
“God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society,” the statement says. “For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.”
At least one person who tried to volunteer without signing the Statement of Faith was turned away, with a staffer at the organization saying it “is a Christian organization.”

Baltimore’s Gangs Aren’t Going To Let Some Coronavirus Slow Them Down
Social distancing may be helpful in slowing the spread of a virus, but it doesn’t do a thing in terms of gang violence because six feet is still considered a very short range when aiming a handgun. That may be the lesson coming out of Charm City as the pandemic grinds on. Private businesses and schools may be shut down, but the gang bangers still out there murdering each other with abandon. The body count in Baltimore from gang warfare is still leaving the coronavirus in the dust.

Drill rapper M24 sparks outrage as he shares footage of himself defying COVID-19 lockdown to film music video at crowded outdoor gathering
Drill rapper M24 has sparked outrage, after he shared footage of himself defying lockdown rules to shoot a music video at an outdoor gathering on Saturday night.
The musician – a rising member of Brixton, south London, crew 150 – took to his Instagram account to upload clips of himself rapping to his latest track as a crowd surrounded him on a housing estate, clearly flouting social distancing rules.
Showing that they were aware of the risks of their actions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of those featured in the clip were seeing sporting surgical masks as they danced and rapped along to his track in unison.

Asian Student Reported Her Ex-Friend Over a Racist Instagram Post, She Was Accused of LYING Instead
A Korean American high school senior in Georgia is being praised on social media for speaking up against racism toward the Asian community in this time of coronavirus pandemic — especially after her authenticity was questioned by no less than a principal.
On Sunday, the student, identified only as Madison, took to Instagram to expose a former friend who complained about missing her graduation because “some ch*nkeye piece of shit decided to eat a bat.“

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.

Anti-LGBTQ hate group will defend megachurch pastor arrested for defying coronavirus measures
The anti-LGBTQ hate group Liberty Counsel has announced they will represent Florida pastor Rodney Howard-Browne after he was arrested for refusing to abide by a government order limiting public gatherings. The group serves as the legal arm of the religious right movement.
The organization also represented disgraced Kentucky former county clerk Kim Davis who was jailed for refusing to follow a judge’s order to issue marriage licenses after same-sex marriage was legalized. They are also arguing cases before the Supreme Court to allow discrimination against LGBTQ people.
Liberty Counsel claims that Howard-Browne’s church observed social distancing guidelines and kept congregants apart by six feet, but video from the services clearly shows dozens of people crowded together for hours.

“Twinks for Trump” founder held a “corona potluck” to spread the virus
“Twink for Trump” Lucian Wintrich talked to the New York Post about a “corona potluck” – a get-together he organized where he discouraged people from washing their hands – that he organized earlier this month.
Wintrich, who parlayed his notoriety from the group Twinks for Trump into a paid gig at the far-right website Gateway Pundit, said that the idea was inspired by “chickenpox parties” – where parents take their kids to deliberately infect them with the disease.

Hate-spewing teens yell ‘you caused coronavirus bitch!’ at Asian woman
A trio of hate-spewing teens blamed an Asian woman for coronavirus as they attacked her on board a city bus in The Bronx, police said Sunday.
The three girls approached the 51-year-old victim on the bus near Ogden Avenue and West 166th Street, screaming a series of anti-Asian slurs around 3 p.m. Saturday when one of the 15-year-olds hit the Asian woman in the head with an umbrella, cops said.
Trish Regan exits Fox Business after calling coronavirus a "scam" on air
Fox Business announced Friday that the cable news network "parted ways" with anchor Trish Regan, after she called the novel coronavirus a "scam" on-air March 9.
The big picture: Conservative commentators, including syndicated radio personality Rush Limbaugh and Fox News' Sean Hannity, have come under fire for minimizing the threat of COVID-19. "For two crucial weeks in late February and early March, powerful Fox hosts talked about the “real” story of the coronavirus: It was a Democratic- and media-led plot against President Donald J. Trump," The New York Times writes.
Christian group opposes coronavirus vaccine research because it used aborted fetal tissue
The Trump administration’s decision to ban scientific research that uses human fetal cells has not only had a major impact on a potential cure for HIV, now it’s hampering the search for a vaccine for COVID-19.
Evangelical Christian activists, who overwhelmingly support Donald Trump and oppose abortion, pushed the administration to ban the research. Now one group is attacking a potential vaccine for the novel coronavirus and claiming further research would be “morally” irresponsible.
“It is deplorable that anyone would want to exploit the remains of aborted babies for financial profit especially when so many people will refuse to use those products because of their deeply held religious, moral, and pro-life convictions?” Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, asked.
In 2018, a scientist who was supposed to supply mice that have been modified with human fetal tissue for an HIV study emailed researchers that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “has directed me to discontinue procuring fetal tissue.”
“This effectively stops all of our research to discover a cure for HIV,” he wrote.

Michael Rapaport Drops 24 F-Bombs In Angry Rant Against Coronavirus Revelers
Public health officials are urging people to remain inside as much as possible to prevent the spread of coronavirus, yet news footage shows crowded parks and beaches in some places.
And actor Michael Rapaport is pretty angry about the whole thing.
Readers be warned: Rapaport’s language is salty.
“Get your little, dirty, fucking grubby, selfish, YOLO fucking dumb tattooed faces in the fucking house,” he said, addressing younger people.
And parents? You’re not off the hook, either.
“Parents, get your fucking kids,” Rapaport said. “This nice guy shit? It’s done. Get your fucking kids in the fucking house.”
