C4 calls in security experts after presenter suffers online abuse
Channel 4 News has called in security specialists to analyse threats made to presenter Cathy Newman following her interview with a controversial Canadian psychologist who has attracted a following among the “alt-right”.
Meanwhile: Cathy Newman’s feminist fans aimed 30 times more violent sexist abuse at Peterson & his supporters than vice-versa

Then Skank Of America could start in...

Call-Out Culture Is a Toxic Garbage Dumpster Fire of Trash
“Trash”—as well as its sister term “garbage”—has become the word du jour to describe everything from men to Tinder to, perhaps most frequently, Lena Dunham. It’s a term hurled, not tossed, and the feeling it seems to convey is “You are a terrible person/place/thing, no better than a pile of wet newspapers moldering in a roadside ditch.” While plenty of terms convey exactly the same thing (“scum,” “vermin,” “dregs”), “trash” has an extra bite to it, because it doesn’t just mean you suck, it also means you aren't woke.

Calling people "trash" is supposedly a new phenomenon? :?

I haven't seen that. I have seen the term "piece of shit" used in that regard. The irony of SJWs dehumanizing people who have opinions they don't like is a study in hypocrisy.

That assumes SJW were ever consistent and not just a bunch of partisans trying to declare themselves correct and scream down and otherwise ignore evidence to the contrary.

In other words, they are fundamentalists.

No, I would not say that.

Behavior like the Inquisition derives from a number of bases, one of which is fundamentalism. There is also a long tradition of "I want that specific guy's shit, and here's a nifty way to get it!"

That is not happening in this case. Rousing appeals to "we will get their stuff . . . someday. . . ." is not the same thing."

This one is not a question of SJWs, though their presence does exacerbate the situation.

African Americans (I use that locution specifically to call attention to nationality) are super sensitive to any association with lower primates of any kind.

H&M are no doubt not guilty of anything but cluelessness, but any American could have predicted the reaction.

If Sargon were American, he'd get it.

If H&M were Americans, it wouldn't have happened.

Sorry corplinx, try again. :P

It's like rape victims, they brought it on themselves?

The people who drummed up the controversy are semi-professional agitators. They seek division. They are zeitgeist terrorists.

It's not about the kid.

It's about how African Americans reacted to it, who are among their target market.

Yes an accident and not "unconscious racism" or any such nonsense.

I tend to agree in this case that nothing at all derogatory was intended or present.

In general, I'd also agree that "unconscious racism" is a stretch in almost all cases--I'm not sure how plausible that is. I do think that unconscious prejudice is a thing (though not evident in this case).
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Replying to @BretWeinstein

Your obsession with the so called “authoritarian left” is disturbing. Unfiltered free speech is a luxury we have to forego for the greater good these days. And yes, this sometimes will harm the well-intentioned actors, which I like to think includes you.

Your second sentence makes my point, and undercuts yours.

Someone should remind @codytrades(?) Supreme Court unanimously reaffirms: There is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment

Unless they live in a country where "hate speech laws" prevail....
