  1. “What’s the latest?” Argyle asked. It was Saturday night.
    “Well,” Merle began, “It seems as if this pandemic of theirs is evolving into a fairly bold power grab.” Merle was still fiddling with his telescopic equipment. Argyle hung up his jacket. The two Martians were eager to catch up on events down on Earth.
    “I have to admit,” Argyle said, “I haven’t really been keeping up this week. I finally sold my house. It’s kept me very busy. What a pain it was.”
    “I bet. I think you made the right move.”
    “I know I did. Anyhow, you were saying–“.
    “Yes,” Merle continued, “the whole thing really is a smokescreen for their money problems. If you look at Earth from the long lens–sorry–you see this clearly. They’ve simply piled up too much world-wide debt under the Keynesian system. Too much under the U.S. dollar. It is all about transitioning into a new monetary order.”
    “Well, I can see this. Covid-19 isn’t much of a virus, is it? I mean requiring comorbitities to the extent you’re basically on your way out the door does not a true pandemic make.”
    “Quite right. And everyone understands debt but no politician wants the house of cards to fall on their watch, which is why the whole mess was created in the first place. Then you have normalcy bias being what it is, preventing the average man from seeing what’s coming. Notice how the opportunists in charge, like Fauci and Gates and every other globalist, don’t seem to be at all afraid? They know the score. And it’s not as if such an epic change in a planet’s monetary system could come about without winners and losers. Those who saw it coming, like Russia and China, loaded up on precious metals for years before now. Even George Soros referred to gold as the mother of all bubbles a few Earth years back, and Mark Carney came right out and said it in some speech he gave not long ago.”

    Argyle sat down in front of his telescope. “Strange times,” he muttered, placing one eye up to the lens. “Money, money, money…”

    Somewhere in what Merle was saying, he thought, was an explanation for the behavior of good leaders down on Earth who also saw what was coming. Maybe it was all simply too big to deny, and the false pandemic was the least bitter pill that had to be swallowed. He focused his telescope. What a beautiful planet it was.

    President Joe Biden’s administration eliminated a Trump-era immigration policy Thursday that allowed the U.S. government to deny immigrants permanent legal status for relying on government assistance, The Hill reported.

    Former President Donald Trump’s administration extended the public charge rule in 2019 to deny immigrants permanent legal status for reliance on Medicaid, cash assistance, and housing assistance. Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, announced in a statement that the administration has “closed the book” on the rule, The Hill reported.

    Mayorkas said in a statement on Tuesday that the administration would not support the public charge rule.

    “The 2019 public charge rule was not in keeping with our nation’s values,” Mayorkas said. “It penalized those who access health benefits and other government services available to them.”

    Biden to spend billions on sex changes for transgender troops

    Image: YouTube screen grab

    President Biden is directing the Pentagon to pay for sex-change surgery for transgender troops. That will likely cost billions of dollars at a time when federal spending is already out of control and our country’s national debt is already far bigger than our economy. Biden is doing so even though sex changes often fail to make transgender people happy, as some admit. The suicide rate of transgender people actually rises after they get sex changes, notes the Heritage Foundation.

    The Washington Examiner reports that “taxpayers will now foot the bill for gender reassignment surgery for active military personnel and veterans, with some treatments costing upward of $200,000 under an executive order signed by President Biden.” Biden’s order “repeals an Obama-era policy that prohibited federally funded” sex-change surgery. The Pentagon could pay for a great many surgeries as a result. The Blaze notes that a “2017 report found there are more than 134,000 veterans and 15,000 service members who identify as transgender.”

      • They’re talking about Israel, not Jewish people, American seculars or otherwise. Dual loyalty is a whole different thing…

        American secular “Jews” may vote 70-75% Demonrat, but they’re a vanishing minority in the party. And they’re increasingly forced to abase themselves to the vicious IslamoCommies who are taking over. It’s Labour and Jeremy Corbin across the Pond.

        Even if you count every voter who emerged from the womb of a Jew – the noisy as-a-jews, – they’d still be a vastly smaller constituency than the millions of Evangelicals.

        Given the demographic trends, that differential expands every day. And they vote their values, generally in alignment with the Jews of the Holy Land.

      Five former officials from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have joined a group of prominent signatories to urge the OPCW to address the controversy surrounding its investigation of an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria in April 2018.

      Leaks from inside the OPCW show that key scientific findings that cast doubt on claims of Syrian government guilt were censored, and that the original investigators were removed from the probe. Since the cover-up became public, the OPCW has shunned accountability and publicly attacked the two whistleblowers who challenged it from inside.

      BERLIN — The German government said Monday that it’s suspending the use of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine over new reports of dangerous blood clots in connection with the shot.

      The Health Ministry said the decision was taken as a “precaution” and on the advice of Germany’s national vaccine regulator, the Paul Ehrlich Institute, which called for further investigation of the cases.

      In a statement, the ministry said the European Medicines Agency would decide “whether and how the new information will affect the authorization of the vaccine.”

      In its statement, the health ministry said the reported blood clots involved cerebral veins, but didn’t specify where or when the incidents occurred.

      • Deustsche Pravda – Germany temporarily halts AstraZeneca vaccinations | Coronavirus latest

        Germany on Monday halted use of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, the Health Ministry announced in a statement. Several other EU countries have stopped use of the vaccine because of the possibility of blood clots. The Health Ministry announced that use of the vaccine was “suspended as a precaution” on the basis of advice from the national health regulator, the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI). According to the Health Ministry, the European Medicines Agency will decide “whether and how the new information will affect the authorization of the vaccine” pending an investigation.

        In addition to Germany, nations across Europe and worldwide have halted use of the vaccine because of possible clotting risks. Italy and France both issued similar statements on Monday afternoon, soon after Germany. Last week, Denmark became the first country to suspend implementation, with Norway, Iceland and Bulgaria following. Non-European nations to have suspend use of the vaccine include Thailand and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    • EU countries suspend AstraZeneca jab as vaccination gap with UK widens

      As Europe battles a potential third wave of COVID-19, the Netherlands has become the latest country to suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine citing potential harmful side effects. Eight countries have now fully stopped using the inoculation developed by scientists at Oxford due to reports of blood clots from those who have taken the jab.

      However the World Health Organisation, European Medicines Agency and British health authorities have dismissed any connection between the vaccine and blood clots.

      17 million people have received the jab in the EU and UK. Just 40 of these people have experienced blood clots according to AstraZeneca, which is expected from an average population of this size.

      The Dutch government has said they will suspend the inoculation until at least 29th March as a precautionary measure. They join Ireland, Denmark, Thailand and several other nations who have temporarily banned the jab.

      Data from the UK and Finland suggests that the vaccine is safe and effective, with no links to blood clotting. AstraZeneca has been the subject of conterservey in recent months, after several European leaders criticised their vaccine as being quasi ineffective in those aged over 65. Initially Germany and France recommended the jab only for younger people, though reversed their decision as data proved the vaccine to be highly effective in all age groups.

      With several EU countries partly or completely stopping the use of the vaccine, delays in Europe’s vaccination programme are only likely to continue, as the continent struggles to protect its population from coronavirus. So far just 11% of EU citizens have been vaccinated, compared to 38% in the UK and 32% in the USA. Steven Edginton, The Sun

      • CBC – Trudeau says AstraZeneca vaccine is safe after some European countries suspend its use

        ‘The best vaccine for you to take is the very first one that is offered to you,’ prime minister says

        Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine is safe and Canadians should have no concerns about receiving it, after nearly a dozen European countries suspended its use over concerns about blood clots.

        “Health Canada and our experts have spent an awful lot of time making sure every vaccine approved in Canada is both safe and effective,” Trudeau said.

        “The best vaccine for you to take is the very first one that is offered to you. That’s how we get through this as quickly as possible and as safely as possible.”

        Trudeau said regulators are “following what has been happening with a specific batch used in Europe.” He said none of the AstraZeneca doses deployed in Canada have come from that batch.

        All of Canada’s current supply is manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, which secured separate regulatory approvals from Health Canada. That version, which is biologically identical to the AstraZeneca shot but is manufactured under different conditions, has been branded “Covishield.”

        Out of the approximately 5 million European residents who have received AstraZeneca’s shot, about 30 have experienced “thromboembolic events” — clots forming in blood vessels — and a very small number of deaths have been reported.

        Quebec Premier François Legault, who joined Trudeau today for a funding announcement for an electric battery plant in Montreal, said health officials in the province have told him there’s nothing to worry about.

        “There’s absolutely no risk associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine. It’s in fact safe,” he said in French. “They’re assuring us there’s no risk.”

        Trudeau said he will not hesitate to get a COVID-19 vaccine when the time comes. “I will wait my turn,” he said.

        Other world leaders — like U.S. President Joe Biden, who, at 78, is much older than the 49-year-old prime minister — have received their shots publicly to boost public confidence in the products’ safety and efficacy. Trudeau’s mother, Margaret, recently received a dose.

        The World Health Organization said in a media statement Monday its global advisory committee on vaccine safety is “carefully assessing the current reports related to the AstraZeneca vaccine.”

        “As of today, there is no evidence that the incidents are caused by the vaccine and it is important that vaccination campaigns continue so that we can save lives and stem severe disease from the virus. The AstraZeneca vaccine has been administered to more than 10 million people in the United Kingdom with no evidence of related serious adverse events.”

        The U.K. Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said Sunday there is no evidence the vaccine has caused any problems in that country — the AstraZeneca product has been in use there for months — and people should still get vaccinated when it’s their turn.

        “Blood clots can occur naturally and are not uncommon. More than 11 million doses of the Covid-19 AstraZeneca vaccine have now been administered across the U.K.,” the MHRA told BBC News.

      Spain joins countries halting AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine

      MADRID (Reuters) – Spain will stop using AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine for at least two weeks, the government said on Monday, joining a growing list of European countries putting the brakes on the shot over concerns about possible side effects.

      “We take this decision today in the interest of caution,” Health Minister Carolina Dias told a news conference.

      She referred to “infrequent cases which are very few but very significant and have prompted Spain to join the other countries that have opted for this precautionary suspension.”

      The top World Health Organization scientist reiterated on Monday that there have been no documented deaths linked to COVID-19 vaccines.

      The WHO appealed to countries not to suspend vaccinations against a disease that has caused more than 2.7 million deaths worldwide.

      Last week, Darias said her administration was monitoring the situation but had only detected light side-effects such as headaches, dizziness and intestinal trouble.

      Nevertheless, several Spanish regions decided to stop using the vaccine until more information became available.

      Europe’s EMA medicines regulator said it would meet on Thursday to analyse the situation and reaffirmed its view that the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks.

      Spain has administered some 6.7 million vaccine doses, around 930,000 made by AstraZeneca.

      Authorities are rolling out vaccines to key workers and elderly people, having inoculated the top priority group of nursing home residents and staff.

      Early signs suggest the vaccination campaign is already helping to slow transmission, health officials have said, and the country’s infection rate over the past two weeks of 129 cases per 100,000 people is the lowest since August.

      A total of 11,358 cases were reported since Friday, bringing the overall tally up to 3.19 million, while the death toll rose by 166 to 72,424.

    • Facebook to label vaccine posts to combat COVID-19 misinfo

      LONDON (AP) — Facebook is adding informational labels to posts about vaccines as it expands efforts to counter COVID-19-related misinformation flourishing on its platforms.

      CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a blog post Monday that labels will contain “credible information” about the vaccines from the World Health Organization. They will be in English and five other languages, with more languages added in coming weeks.

      “For example, we’re adding a label on posts that discuss the safety of COVID-19 vaccines that notes COVID-19 vaccines go through tests for safety and effectiveness before they’re approved,” Zuckerberg said.

      The social network is also adding a tool to help get users vaccinated by connecting them to information about where and when they can get their shot.

      Facebook and Instagram have been criticized for allowing anti-vaccination propaganda to spread and for being woefully slow in weeding out the misinformation, often with fact-checks, labels and other restrained measures.

      “This announcement falls well short of what is needed to solve the crisis of anti-vaccine lies polluting social media users’ timelines,” said Imran Ahmed, CEO of the nonprofit Center for Countering Digital Hate, a critic of social media companies’ handling of hate speech and misinformation.

      “Facebook and Instagram still do not remove the vast majority of posts reported to them for containing dangerous misinformation about vaccines,” he said “The main superspreaders of anti-vaccine lies all still have a presence on Instagram or Facebook, despite promises to remove them. And the evidence suggests that the way Facebook applies labels to misinformation posts has minimal impact.”

      For years, Facebook and other social platforms have allowed anti-vaccination propaganda to flourish, making it difficult to stamp out such sentiments now. And their efforts to weed out other types of COVID-19 misinformation — often with fact-checks, informational labels and other restrained measures, has been woefully slow.

      The Associated Press recently identifiedmore than a dozen Facebook pages and Instagram accounts, collectively boasting millions of followers, that have made false claims about the COVID-19 vaccine or discouraged people from taking it. Some of these pages have existed for years.

    • Note the reports of Chinese factories and warehouses being set on fire, the people know who is behind the coup and who they have to defeat. Combine this Chinese action (the coup) on one side of India and the bomb explosion in Nepal on a different side. China is trying to surround India, a couple of years ago this was called the string of pearls as China worked to build Naval bases on Islands that would give them control of the Indian Ocean. This would cut India off from raw materials, military supplies and aid from foreign allies. This was the reason that the Quad was formed and the reason that Trump worked so hard to ensure that Biden couldn’t pull out of the Quad.

      China taking effective control of Burma gives them the ability to base warships including subs out of Rangoon, thus avoiding the SOSUS line on both ends of the Malacca Strait. All of China’s Naval Bases are inside the First Island Chain giving their enemies the ability to build SOSUS lines across the straits between the Islands. Rangoon moves their subs outside of the First Island Chain and when China finally decides to fight India exposes the Indian commercial fleet (and others carry goods to India) to commerce raiders, attack subs interdicting the flow of needed material to India.

      Add in the way China is making a Client State/Colony out of Pakistan and is moving into Afghanistan and you see China moving to take control of all land borders with India. Once the string of pearls in the Indian Ocean is completed China can slowly strangle the Indian external commerce strangling their economy.

      This is also the reason China is building the artificial islands in the South China Sea, they give China the ability to control what goods are shipped to Nam, Cambodia, to a lesser extent Thailand and Indonesia. while threatening the Western borders of Japan and the Philippines.

      Speaking of the Philippines the Chinese are sending out “Oceanic Survey Vessels” to map the ocean near several of the Western Philippine Islands. The new charts that will result from this mapping will help any invasion plan and allow Chinese Subs to make the transits between the Islands submerged. Increasing their chances of making it outside the First Island Chain without being spotted.

      A rough timeline for this is that the building of artificial Islands started while Clinton was President, slowed down some While Bush II was President. Increased while Obama was and was to a large extent countered while Trump was President. In the first months of the Biden Presidency the actions and threats have become more open and more often.

      Remember the predictions of war with China within 6 years are based no the presumption that everything keeps being roughly the same for the next 6 years. I don’t believe in a steady state in internal or external politics for that long. The world is in a state of flux that will increase in ever increasing waves of chaos over the next year changing all predictions.

      • The timing is accelerating for all our enemies. They’re striking while the iron is hot.

        This isn’t a plan thrown together during a post-election “transition”. The moves are coordinated, right down to which carriers will be where and when. China and Iran are in sync with the WH.

        • I am afraid you are right, this plan was worked out well before the election and they have been fine tuning it since. Biden can order the US forces out of the war zone and China can keep most of India’s forces tied down on the border and along the string of pearls. That leaves Japan, Australia, Taiwan and what ships they can get from Europe and the other Island nations. That makes it a close run war with neither side having a clear advantage,

          Then we see Iran making moves in the Mideast with the looming conflict between Ukraine and Russia. This will pull Russia out of the way for Iran in Iraq, Syria and probably Turkey. I hate to say it but that regional war is going to be up to Israel and the Arabic allies they can get to help them.

          The future is starting to look real nasty for several years, right now i am praying that things don’t go nuclear.

    • This was reported by U.S. sources deliberately.
      Both Iran and Israel chose to keep it quiet so Iran wouldn’t lose “face” and be forced to retaliate.

      Enemies in this administration are stirring the pot.

      • That was what I was thinking, I also thought of the Iranian ship that was damaged in the Red Sea saying that this was on of the ships hit.

      • I first saw the reports a couple of days ago and finally decided that posting it wouldn’t do anymore damage to Israel and their war effort.

        • Elections there are on March 23.
          Then they have to put together a coalition, which may take a month or two.

          The army isn’t in tip-top shape, nor are the reserves – thanks CHYna. War now would be unfortunate.

          • I don’t know if the destruction of the Western Militaries was one of the goals of the virus or just a lucky (for them) accident. Either way they are taking advantage of it to push as hard and as fast as they can.

    14-18 minutes

    A reflection on popular delusions and the madness of crowds.

    In 1841, Charles Mackay wrote a 702-page book titled Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. The book details investment hysteria and panic, but it’s really about human nature, something that doesn’t change throughout recorded history. I will show the reader, in this essay, how we are experiencing popular delusions and the madness of crowds, right now, with the current corona virus, COVID-19 hysteria and panic.

    Today’s social psychologists use the term “groupthink” to describe the modern versions of crowd madness. “Groupthink” represents the prevailing beliefs and rationalizations that influence the decisions of the general public as well as the experts. Their groupthink beliefs are shaped by the opinions of others (think CNN, New York Times and Twitter) and not by the rigor of their own personal and independent analysis. The current hysteria and panic over the COVID crisis is a modern example of groupthink. This essay will examine that claim.

    Dear Mr. Dohle and Ms. McIntosh:

    We write on behalf of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the oldest and one of the largest pro-Israel organizations in the U.S. The ZOA is a leader in fighting against antisemitism and anti-Israel bias wherever these problems arise.

    Having received complaints from our supporters and conducting our own review, we are deeply concerned about the factual inaccuracies, material omissions and outright falsehoods contained in one of your recent publications – “A Promised Land” by former U.S. President Barack Obama. The many errors are serious and damaging. The book has already reached and influenced millions of readers and will impact many more. We expect that this book will be assigned reading in schools and at colleges and universities, affecting how young people and future leaders perceive Israel. Obama’s many factual errors and misleading statements will likely be repeated and quoted in articles and other books. As a result, millions of people will be misled into drawing false and negative conclusions about Jews and Israel.

    To paraphrase Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, President Obama is entitled to his own opinions about Israel, which he expresses in Chapter 25 of his book. But he is not entitled to his own facts.

    We believe that you value the accuracy of your nonfiction books and support appropriate vetting because reportedly, you provide a stipend for your nonfiction authors to hire fact-checkers. Given the many factual errors that we have identified and outlined below, the fact-checking of “A Promised Land” was sloppily done, if it was done at all. Knowing that this book, written by a former U.S. president, would have enormous reach and influence, it was a mistake not to subject this book to the m

  8. Washington D.C. Falls Under Permanent Military Occupation – Frontpagemag

    8-10 minutes

    When are the troops leaving? Never, if the Democrats have their way.

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

    25,000 National Guard members were deployed to Washington D.C. to protect Biden’s inauguration from a threat that never existed. Even though nothing had happened since the Capitol Riot and even though the 7,000 troops already in the city, who had been authorized to use lethal force, were far more than the 2,500 troops fighting in Afghanistan, more were needed.

    The Democrats deployed ten times more troops to fight other Americans than to fight Al Qaeda.

    “Every state, territory and the District of Co

    • The scary part is towards the end of the article, there is talk of making that “Permanent Active Duty Guard Force” self deployable. They will be totally separate from the rest of the US military, they are under the command of their Commanding General and no one else. This will be the Democrats Private Army, it will start as an 800 man unit but how large will it grow? Remember Obama’s “Civilian” National Defense Corp that was to be as large and as well armed as the US military.

      Think of the PLA that belongs to the CCP not he Chinese Government, the Nazi SS which belonged to the Nazi Party and not the German Government. If allowed to be established and to grow this unit will become a Praetorian Guard that picks the next President/Emperor of the US.

      Another danger of this unit is that it is suppose to be an MP Unit, how long before it splits and expands to include an investigative body that is once again responsible to the Commanding General and no one else? This investigative body will become the US Stasi/KGB/Gestapo or what every secret police with extra judicial powers you want to name.

  9. U.S. Leaks Are Behind Report of Israeli Attacks on Iranian Ships

    The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Israel had attacked at least a dozen Iranian ships since 2019. Dr. Yoel Guzansky, a senior researcher at Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies, stresses that these reports lack confirmation and Israel hasn’t taken responsibility for the events.

    Guzansky said: “These leaks, which point a finger at Israel, are intended to limit Israel’s maneuvering room….It’s clear that these are American leaks, and their aim is obvious – it is an attempt to signal to the Iranians….It is just one of those confidence-building measures used by the Americans in their relations with the Iranians.”

    “If the administration is willing to leak a thing like this, that can harm Israel in a variety of ways, then there’s a message here for Israel from the administration, which isn’t positive.”

  10. Mohammed Khalid Alyahya:
    The Price of Empowering Iran

    Since the Biden administration’s decision to reverse the designation of Yemen’s Houthi militia as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) on Feb. 12, drones and ballistic missiles have targeted Saudi Arabia 48 times. It is a fallacy to understand the region’s politics as a contest between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Seen from Tehran, the central contest in the region is between the American alliance system and Iran’s self-styled “resistance alliance.”

    Biden’s misconception leads to a number of erroneous ideas: that the U.S. can play a neutral, mediating role between Riyadh and Tehran; that by distancing itself from Saudi Arabia, it creates opportunities for regional stability and understanding; and that it is the Saudi role in Yemen – and not the Iranian role – that has perpetuated the conflict in that country.

    Iran has waged a forty-year war to spread its control across the region – not to compete with Saudi Arabia, but to undermine the American alliance system. Iran’s network of terrorist groups in the region chant, “death to America,” not “death to Saudi Arabia.”

    Iran’s attacks on Saudi Arabian civilian infrastructure, via its proxies in Yemen and Iraq, are reactions to U.S. policy – not Saudi Arabian policy. Appeasing Iran, and punishing U.S. allies, will come at the expense of the entire region.

  11. Kosovo Announces Opening of Embassy in Jerusalem

    Muslim-majority Kosovo on Sunday announced the opening of an embassy in Jerusalem. Ines Demiri, Kosovo’s Charge d’Affaires to Israel, called it a “truly proud and historic moment.” The move was in exchange for Israel recognizing Kosovo, which has now been recognized by much of the Western world.

  12. Syria: This Will Not End Well

    As Iran continues to use Syria as a staging area for a direct attack on Israel, Iran’s “allies” Russia, Turkey and Assad are now all working against it.

    Popular opinion in Iraq and Lebanon is now actively hostile towards Iran.

    Back home most Iranians see the cost of the Syrian War pushing more Iranians into poverty.

    Yet the religious dictatorship that has ruled Iran since the 1980s considers the destruction of Israel as worth any cost. The Iranian leadership believe they are on a mission from Gd.

  14. Texas governor: Border Patrol agents told me drug cartels are getting rich off Biden’s border crisis

    Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott reported Sunday that Border Patrol agents informed him President Biden’s “open borders policies” are causing the ongoing crisis at the southern border and resulting in the enrichment of dangerous drug cartels.

    The agents reportedly told the governor during his visit to the southern border last week they had warned the Biden administration to no avail that his policy changes would result in a “massive surge” in illegal immigration and that it was only going to get “far worse in the coming months.”

    Abbott relayed details about the meeting during an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo over the weekend.

    “They also said that the reason for the change, the reason for the increase and the influx is because of the policy change by the Biden administration,” Abbott said. “More importantly, though is … Border Patrol officers told me that the Biden administration policies, they are enriching and they are empowering the drug cartels in Mexico, who make money off of the people that they assist in smuggling them into the state of Texas.”

  15. White and non-black people are told NOT to share Oprah memes because it is ‘digital blackface’

    White and non-black people are being told not to share any of the numerous Oprah Winfrey memes from her bombshell interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – because they are a form of ‘digital blackface’.

    The Slow Factory Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to social and environmental justice, this week issues a warning about digital blackface, describing it as an online phenomenon where white and non-black people share GIFs and photos of black people to express emotion, and stating that it often perpetuates negative stereotypes that they are ‘aggressive, loud, and sassy.’

    In an Instagram post, the organization used an Oprah meme as a direct example of ‘digital blackface’ – sparking a furious debate in the comments where some agreed with the message, while others hit back, claiming that banning non-black people from posting the memes equates to ‘black erasure’.
