FORMER CHILD ACTRESS AND WOULD BE SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR ALYSSA MILANO IS BEING CALLED OUT FOR BEING PART OF A NEW SERIES THAT FEATURES FAT SHAMING.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, ALYSSA EXPLAINED, "FAT SHAMING IS WRONG. EXCEPT WHEN I DO IT. WHEN I DO IT, IT'S OKAY BECAUSE I'M SO MUCH MORE EVOLVED THAN ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET. REMEMBER, I WAS ON WHO'S THE BOSS!"
THOSE WHO DISAGREE CAN SIGN THE PETITION CALLING FOR NETFLIX NOT TO AIR THE SHOW.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
More protests today as the silence on Iraq largely continues.
I don't normally do this, but I will openly criticise H.M. Government for not producing any statement on Iraq, the protests have been going on for days now, and we've said not a word. People are dying, and it is clear some form of comment is needed. Even an expression of concern.
There's a great deal of silence about what's taking place in Iraq. Many governments are silent, western media is largely silent. The people are attacked and various bodies reveal their true colors. It's not a 'news' story that the Iraqi government is attacking the Iraqi people. It's not a 'human rights' issue either so the governments can be silent as well.
What you see is the silence of the corrupt and the guilty.
Remember when Goody Whore used to boast that she delivered "the war and peace report" on DEMOCRACY NOW?
The attacks have gotten one damn headline all week. That's it. So much for war and peace and alleged concern for the people of the world. Those who remember the so-called Arab Spring, if they know reality, are aware that it actually started in Iraq and, long after the media had moved on from Egypt, the protests continued in Iraq.
Iraq got little coverage then. In part because Nouri al-Maliki was attacking journalists. Well, he was attacking Iraqi journalists. There was no excuse for the silence from non-Iraqis.
What is their excuse? They're slaves to their corporate masters?
That would certainly describe those yapping and howling from the kennels of THE WASHINGTON POST. They're so indignant daily, those E.J.s and Clarences and Ruths and the lesser names. But they're not so righteous that they will leave Jeff Bezos' payroll, right? They care so much about the world. They care so much about fairness and equality . . . except when it comes to their own pay check. They want that pay check. Screw the workers for Amazon -- Jeff certainly does. Someone needs to knock them off their high horse and remind them that as long as Jeff pays slave wages to Amazon workers and as long as they work for Jeff, they are just as guilty.
Oh all around the marketplace
The buzzing of the flies
The buzzing and the stinging
And wickedly wise
The killer nails are ringing
Enter the multitudes
In Exxon blue
In radiation rose
Now you tell me
Who you gonna get to do the dirty work
When all the slaves are free?
(Who're you gonna get)

The protests are going on today.
It's been two weeks and the reality is that you have to to non-western media to find out what's happening. With the exception of NPR, no US outlet has covered the story in a serious manner -- meaning more than a passing glance. (CNBC did a good report yesterday that we'll note in a moment. NPR has done several reports.)
AP has a video today.
Non-western outlets and voices have covered the protests repeatedly and powerfully.
The protests are continuing today.
