‘Worst civil unrest since 1994’: How South Africa plunged into riots, looting and turmoil

South Africa has been plunged into the “worst civil unrest” since the end of white-minority rule in 1994, with the country being gripped by riots and lootings. Th turmoil has so far claimed more than 70 lives, and has caused immense loss to hundreds of business establishments.

What has triggered the violence?

Violent demonstrations erupted in the country after the jailing of former President Jacob Zuma. He handed himself over last week to start a 15-month prison sentence in a contempt of court case.

Gun-toting looters and rioters have taken over the streets of Durban, Johannesburg and several other parts of the country.

Is Justin Trudeau a Post-Fact, Mini-Me Fascist?

“It’s the fascists who said everyday life doesn’t matter; details don’t matter; facts don’t matter; all that matters is the message, the leader, the myth, the totality.”

What surprised me, listening to Snyder’s description of the earmarks of fascism, was that Donald Trump didn’t come to mind.

Popping up instead was the image of our own Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, complete with sleeves rolled up on his crisp, white dress shirt.

Canada’s liberal fascism
Justin Trudeau’s brand of liberalism is a real curate’s egg.

On the one hand, he has introduced ultra-nanny state policies like plain packaging, on the other hand he has legalised cannabis.

On the one hand, he has introduced compelled speech laws, on the other hand he has, er, legalised cannabis.

But this is next-level stuff…

Trudeau government has a blind spot for left-wing extremism

“When do the left wingers go too far? Oh we don’t know. Well, first of all we certainly know that they can go too far,” said Peterson, noting that those who ignore the far-left are either “woefully ignorant or you’re willfully blind.”

A perfect example of the blindspot for left-wing extremism appears to be the case in the Trudeau government’s compiling of Canada’s list of banned terrorist entities.

Justin Trudeau Tweets From The Past Decade That Certainly Didn’t Age Well

We all have tweets that didn’t age particularly well. The same is true even for prime ministers.
In the wake of the federal government’s prorogation this week, Twitter sleuths unearthed a few tweets prime minister Justin Trudeau may be reconsidering right now. Most notably, his spicy take on prorogation.

N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo Sexually Harassed Multiple Women, State Investigation Finds

An investigation found that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women in and out of state government and worked to retaliate against one of his accusers, New York’s attorney general announced Tuesday in a finding that quickly renewed calls for the Democrat’s resignation or impeachment.

Cuomo remained defiant Tuesday following the investigation’s findings, saying that “the facts are much different than what has been portrayed” and appearing to reject calls to resign.
