    "People have to stop calling it a 'raid.' It was a lawful search pursuant to a warrant. Don't let Trump and pals frame the messaging," Kanefield tweeted. A tweet posted on conservative commentator Dan Bongino's account featured a string of laughing emojis and clown emojis as a response to Kanefield's comments. "Someone said the alternative to 'raid' also needs to be short and snappy. I think the phrase needs to suggest due process of law to counter the right-wing narrative that Trump's home was 'under siege' and 'occupied.' Okaaaay. Fiiiine. I'll go with 'search,'" Kanefield tweeted. \u201c\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83d\udc47\ud83c\udffb\u201d — Dan Bongino (@Dan Bongino) 1660079722
    ANSWERING some of the many questions children have can be a little awkward. Not everyone is ready to discuss the birds and the bees with their kids or explain what that naughty word on the telly was - as you dive for the remote. 1Sarah of momthoughts has spoken to followers about private parts and the language parents should use One of those questions that many of us like to dodge is what a child should call their privates. With the majority of the words we use to describe them highly inappropriate for youngsters, and the biological terms sounding very formal and grown-up, many people opt for a softer version. This is why so many of us have grown up using terms like willy, flower, minnie, foo-foo, front bottom, floof or ganglies. But one child expert advised against using these words with your kiddies.

    University of Oklahoma assistant head football coach Cale Gundy stepped down after repeatedly saying a 'racially charged' term to his players during a film session and not over a single, mistaken utterance of the word, head coach Brent Venables has revealed.   Venables made his clarification on Monday after Gundy, a longtime Sooners assistant, announced his resignation for admittedly using 'shameful' language with his players.  'Coach Gundy resigned from the program because he knows what he did was wrong,' Venables said in his second statement on Gundy's exit. 'He chose to read aloud to his players, not once but multiple times, a racially charged word that is objectionable to everyone, and does not reflect the attitude and values of our university or our football program.  'This is not acceptable. Period. Coach Gundy did the right thing in resigning.'  Gundy, the brother of Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy, announced his resignation in a social media post, insisting that the offending word 'was not malicious; it wasn't it even intentional.' The word Gundy used has not been revealed.  The incident took place...

    A female Cincinnati police officer has been suspended after using a racial slur to describe a black student who gave her the middle finger.  Rose Valentino was 'suspended' for reportedly calling a black student a 'n***a' after he reportedly flipped her off while she was driving near the Western Hills University High School on April 5.  Police confirmed she will be placed on desk duty while the disciplinary hearing takes place. She will not be allowed to patrol the streets, wear her badge, or carry a firearm.  Bodycam footage picked up audio of her yelling 'f**king n***a, I f**king hate them,' after she flipped on her cruiser lights to get the cars waiting in line to pick up their kids to move.  The encounter with the student was not released by the police department, but Valentino, who appeared on the TLC series Police Women in Cincinnati, reportedly rolled down her window and yelled at drivers to move when the student flipped her off.  Valentino, who has been on the force for 14 years, was driving her cruiser back to the police...
    BERWYN, Ill. (WLS) -- There are new calls for a city employee to be fired after she admitted to police she used a racial slur against a man.Contractor Phil Robbin still can't believe what he said happened in a Berwyn alley two months ago."I feel like I'm this big every day I'm walking around, and I'm a pretty big guy to be feeling like this," Robbin said.Robbin said he was parked in that alley while on a job removing a tree from a customer's yard when a woman, whom he later learned was Berwyn school board member Sarah Lopez, rolled up in a marked city vehicle and ordered him to move his truck.Robbin said he objected, telling her he had a permit to park in the alley."She was screaming at the top of her lungs, 'You don't know who you're F-ing with! I'm calling the police!' And I said, 'Feel free,'" Robbin recalled. "When I turned my back, it went haywire from then.

    Retired Formula One legend Nelson Piquet has apologised 'to anyone that was affected' after referring to Sir Lewis Hamilton with the N-word during an interview. It came as the Brazilian motor racing legend faced a severe backlash from F1 fans for using the racial slur. In a statement, he said: 'What I said was ill thought out, and I make no defence for it.' Piquet's daughter's partner  Max Verstappen was criticised by outraged Formula One fans after he has remained silent over Piquet using the N-word to describe Sir Lewis Hamilton in an interview. Piquet used the derogatory Portuguese phrase 'neguinho' while referring to the seven-time world champion on a podcast with the Brazilian publication Motorsport Talks in November last year - but the story surfaced in Britain yesterday. Explaining his actions, he added: 'I strongly condemn any suggestion that the word was used by me with the aim of belittling a driver because of his skin colour.

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama sparked debate on an Instagram post after she 'used the term womxn' when voicing her support for abortion care. Obama took to Instagram on Saturday to encourage voters to take part in the midterm primary elections, especially in states where a potential Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade overturn would likely lead to abortion bans. 'State lawmakers will have the power to strip womxn of the right to make decisions about their bodies and their healthcare,' one of the slides Obama shared read. The term 'womxn' is intended to be inclusive of transgender and non-binary people who identify as women, but critics say using the phrase erases the experience of cisgender women. Obama used the traditional spelling in the caption of the post: 'It's been a tough couple of weeks since we saw the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion on abortion.' 'If it comes to pass, we may soon live in a country where millions of women — not to mention our children and grandchildren — lose the right to make decisions about their bodies and their...
    Tucker Carlson's viewers got more than they bargained for on Monday night, when the Fox News anchor had to swiftly cut a live feed from outside Justice Samuel Alito's house after a protester launched an expletive-filled chant with her middle finger aloft. Carlson was describing the protests against the recent draft Supreme Court ruling, written by Alito, that would overturn Roe v Wade. Protests have erupted in front of the Supreme Court Building and around the country after the leaked draft opinion.  Other demonstrators, angry at the prospect of abortion being prohibited in multiple states, have taken to protesting outside the homes of the conservative justices who voted in favor of overturning the 1973 legislation. Dozens of people also gathered over the weekend outside the homes of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts in the Washington and Maryland suburbs.  'So it used to be like, before Joe Biden was president that Supreme Court justices were allowed to write opinions because that's how the system worked,' Carlson said. Tucker Carlson on Monday night showed a live feed of protesters...
    Democrats have begun talking about the importance of a Ukrainian victory over Russia amid questions about President Joe Biden’s leadership of the Western response to the Kremlin’s invasion. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) led a group of Democratic lawmakers on a surprise visit to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky over the weekend. "Our delegation traveled to Kyiv to send an unmistakable and resounding message to the entire world: America stands firmly with Ukraine," she said in a statement afterward. DEMOCRATS HOPE TO MESSAGE THEIR WAY OUT OF A MIDTERM ELECTION LOSS Pelosi also vowed the United States would support Ukraine “until victory is won.” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who was also on the trip, echoed Pelosi’s comments. “The war in Ukraine is a struggle of freedom against tyranny,” Schiff tweeted. “And we must do our part to ensure Ukraine is victorious.” “Nothing is going to decrease,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Gregory Meeks (D-NY) said of aid to Ukraine. “Everything is going to increase.” “It looked like one big campaign event to me,” said Republican strategist John Feehery....
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The Sacramento City Unified School District On Monday announced that the teacher who was recorded using racist language, including the n-word, in the classroom has resigned from her position at Kit Carson International Academy.

    The outlet noted that NASCAR instituted mandatory sensitivity training for all participants ahead of the 2021 season, and other drivers have been required to take sensitivity training after saying or posting offensive things recently. Busch was ordered to complete sensitivity training in November after using the R-word to describe Brad Keselowski's driving at Martinsville, Yahoo! Sports said, adding that Truck Series driver Hailie Deegan had to complete sensitivity training after using the R-word during a Twitch stream of a virtual race in January 2021. What's more, Larson himself was suspended for most of the 2020 season and had to complete sensitivity training after using the N-word during a virtual race, the outlet said, adding that he was reinstated to NASCAR after fulfilling requirements for a return to the Cup Series and then won the 2021 title. How are folks reacting? While some Twitter commenters said Hamlin was in the wrong, others commenting under his apology tweet expressed dismay over the discipline handed down to him and said people are taking things way too seriously these days: "I’m a Larson...
    Joe Rogan has claimed that his podcast's subscription base has gained two million more listeners over the last couple of months despite incessant calls from the 'woke mob' for him to be canceled following footage of him using the n-word and hosting anti-vaxxer guests promoting Covid disinformation on his show. On his latest episode of The Joe Rogan Experience on Friday, Rogan, 54, was asked by his guest, British author and political commentator Douglas Murray, about being pilloried by the mainstream media. 'You have been put through the ringer since we last met,' Murray tells the former UFC commentator. 'They did a number on you. Wow.' Rogan replied: 'It's interesting, my subscriptions went up massively — that's what's crazy. During the height of it all, I gained 2 million subscribers.' If true, that would raise his subscriptions to around 11 million from the nine million he had when the controversies began.  Spotify, which reportedly paid a minimum of $200 million to bring the podcast to its platform, doesn't usually disclose its JRE subscriber numbers to the public. Joe Rogan (right)...
    DEAR HARRIETTE: I am a Black literature teacher at a high school. One of my non-Black students wrote a short story about racism and included the N-word. He used the full word. Harriette Cole  I told him that his use of the word was inappropriate, but I didn’t mark him down. I told my fellow Black teachers about my student’s use of the N-word, and they told me that I should’ve penalized him. I think that my student had good intentions and meant to write an educational piece, but the delivery was wrong. Should I have penalized him?

    A white Arkansas sheriff has sparked controversy and accusations of racism after being caught asking a dispatcher about where a shooting had taken place and then pinning it on 'black people.' Prairie County Sheriff Rick Hickman is in hot water after a recording of the call with the county's communication center following a shooting that left three dead was released this week by KARK.  In the call, the operator can be heard relaying where the shooting occurred. 'The house next to the apartments,' she tells Hickman, who replies: 'Oh, really. Black people then.' 'I said where. Was it the blacks in the apartments? Cause those apartments are all blacks where it happened,' Hickman told KARK on Tuesday, while also claiming he wasn't being racist. 'No, cause those blacks live over there - that's why I asked,' he said. 'Nothing racial about it.'  The crime took place in Des Arc, which has a population of just over 1,500 people - 86 percent white and 11 percent black.  It turns out the victims and suspect in the shooting were white and it actually occurred in...
    Meghan Markle is now trying to trademark the historic word ‘archetypes’ after announcing that her first series of podcasts for audio streaming giant Spotify would be called Archetypes. The Duchess of Sussex made the application at the United States Patent and Trademark Office last month which covers the use of ‘archetypes’, a word which derives from ancient Greek and first entered into English usage around the 1540s. The dizzying list of goods and services involved are ‘in the fields of cultural treatment of women and stereotypes facing women’. They include everything from podcasts, television programmes, DVDs, CDs and entertainment services distributed through satellite and cable TV, global computer networks, the internet, wireless devices, mobile applications, set-top boxes, webcasts and streaming media. The application was made by Archewell Audio, one of a complex web of 11 companies established by Harry and Meghan and based in the opaque tax haven of Delaware. It would mean they own the trademark rather than Spotify, which paid them a rumoured £18million in 2020. The Duchess of Sussex made the application at the United States Patent and Trademark...
    Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Samuel L. Jackson has joined those taking issue with Joe Rogan’s apology for his past use of the “N-word” on his podcast. “He is saying nobody understood the context when he said it,” Jackson said of Rogan’s explanation in a recent interview with The Times. “But he shouldn’t have said it.” A compilation video of Rogan repeatedly using the “N-word” went viral in February, also including a clip of him comparing a movie theater in a Black neighborhood to The Planet of the Apes. Rogan later apologized in a nearly 6-minute Instagram video, yet claimed that the compilation was “a video that’s made of clips taken out of context.” “I know that to most people, there’s no context where a White person is ever allowed to say that, never mind publicly on a podcast, and I agree with that,” Rogan added. But Jackson is not buying the excuse, telling The Times, “It’s not the context, dude — it’s that he was comfortable doing it.” “Say that you’re sorry because you want to keep your money, but you were having fun...
    By Anna Maria Basquez EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Administrators and a teacher at a Colorado Springs area high school are engaging in discussions with students and parents after an incident in which the teacher is alleged to have used racial slurs in the course of instruction. Samantha Briggs, spokeswoman for Widefield School District 3, said Mesa Ridge High School Navy JROTC instructor Brian Gauck used the N-word in multiple classes. The district states the word was used in a discussion about the First Amendment. “I can confirm a JROTC instructor used the word during a class discussion around the First Amendment and language,” Briggs said. “The word was not used to call or refer to anyone.” The school’s principal took immediate action once she was made aware of the situation and the instructor publicly apologized to all students in the classes. “In addition, the principal has apologized to students and parents on behalf of the school,” she said. “The principal and the instructor are engaging in individual conversations with students and parents to restore relationships.

     Saturday Night Live went after Joe Rogan this week, mocking the controversy surrounding his podcast. In the sketch, John Mulaney — this week’s SNL host — portrays a man who got fired from his job after his old podcast was unearthed. “Truly sucks you’re getting fired, just because people can’t take jokes anymore,” Mickey Day says in the skit, prompting Mulaney to say that he should have deleted his old podcast once he got promoted. Mulaney’s character clearly had some problematic takes in his podcast, as his former co-workers are surprised “you can’t even use the N-word to describe people anymore.” The joke is a clear reference to Rogan’s past podcast episodes, some of which featured him using racial slurs and making derogatory remarks. A compilation video of Rogan repeatedly using the “N-word” on his podcast went viral this month, and also shows a clip of him comparing a movie theater in a Black neighborhood to The Planet of the Apes. Rogan has since apologized. As a goodbye present, Mulaney is gifted a “podcast set for White guys,” which doesn’t record anything at all, allowing...
    ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (KABC) -- One day after several groups called for the resignation of Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer for allegedly making racist remarks while discussing a murder case last year, he now finds himself at the center of more controversy.A video of Spitzer surfaced on Wednesday in which he heard using the N-word multiple times. The video was taken in 2019 during an event with the Iranian American Bar Association. Spitzer was speaking about hate crimes and was quoting statements that were projected a screen as part of his presentation.Spitzer is already facing major criticism for allegedly making racist remarks while discussing a high-profile murder case last year.According to a memo obtained by Eyewitness News last week, the comments were made during a meeting regarding the case of Jamon Buggs. Buggs was charged with murdering two people over an ex-girlfriend, who is white.The memo, which was written by former Senior Assistant District Attorney Brahim Baytieh in Dec. 2021, stated the purpose of the meeting was for senior prosecutors to recommend appropriate punishment for Buggs, who is Black....
    A white teacher at a multi-racial San Diego elementary school has been suspended for using the N-word while reciting an iconic Harlem Renaissance poem about black author Countee Cullen's experience with racism as a child. Amy Glancy, a fourth-grade teacher at High Tech Elementary School in Point Loma, read aloud the racial slur from the renowned poem 'Incident,' prompting two upset students to storm out of the classroom while others complained to the school's dean. 'I can't believe you did that!' one student said before leaving the room with another distraught peer, Glancy recounted to Los Angles Times columnist Sandy Banks.  'Ms. Glancy, you don't understand how hard it is to hear that word,' one student told Glancy after class, before complaining to the dean.  Glancy, who is in her first year teaching at High Tech Elementary School, told Banks that she decided against censoring the poem 'to demonstrate that the poet's words can evoke emotion — in this case, anger and sadness.' Amy Glancy, a white San Diego elementary school teacher, has been suspended for using the N-word while reciting...
    (CNN)A Catholic priest has resigned after a church investigation found he performed invalid baptisms throughout most of his more than 20-year career, according to Bishop Thomas Olmsted of the Diocese of Phoenix. Father Andres Arango, who performed thousands of baptisms, would say, "We baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." But Olmsted explained the words "We baptize" should have been "I baptize" instead."The issue with using 'We' is that it is not the community that baptizes a person, rather, it is Christ, and Him alone, who presides at all of the sacraments, and so it is Christ Jesus who baptizes," Olmsted wrote in a message to parishioners posted last month.The error also means that because baptism is the first of the sacraments, some people will need to repeat other sacraments, according to the diocese webpage for frequently asked questions. CNN has reached out to the diocese for comment on other sacraments.Arango resigned as pastor of the St. Gregory Parish in Phoenix as of February 1.Read MorePope Benedict XVI revelations are...
    MEDIA WINNER: George Stephanopoulos On Sunday’s episode of This Week on ABC, George Stephanopoulos scored substantive interviews with key lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. In a notable exchange with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Stephanopoulos challenged him about his shifting attitude towards former President Donald Trump ever since the events of January 6th. The anchor questioned Graham if he would support Trump running for president again in 2024, and the senator replied “it’s his nomination for the taking in 2024, if he wants.” Graham added that Trump is “hurting his chances” if he keeps looking back at the 2020 election, which Trump continues to falsely claim was stolen from him. Stephanopoulos quoted several insults that Trump had lobbed Graham’s way, and said to him, “you said that the president will have to change if he wants to be competitive in 2024. He doesn’t really show any signs of changing.” Stephanopolous also confronted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about comments from Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), who affirmed her support for the slogan “defund the police” earlier this week, and claimed to be feeling pressure from Democratic colleagues to change her rhetoric. The Speaker flatly rejected that...
    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said the blue check mark mob is trying to take down podcaster Joe Rogan for his past usage of the n-word and while Howard Stern’s history with the n-word because Stern sucks up to those in power. A recent compilation of Rogan using the n-word on his podcast prompted the Cruz whataboutism with Stern’s past history of wearing blackface and using the n-word. Howard Stern’s black face routine has yet to earn the outrage of those attacking Joe Rogan for quoting others using a word. pic.twitter.com/SkkhQ5TXeV — Cernovich (@Cernovich) February 6, 2022 “Look I’ve really grown to admire Rogan,” Cruz said on the latest episode of the Verdict With Ted Cruz podcast. “For those in power having someone willing to dissent with a really big megaphone scares them,” the senator added, of Rogan’s Covid vaccine views.

Neither you nor I support it — that’s not a word...
    Photo by Alex Trautwig/Getty Images A writer for CNN argued that the controversy over Joe Rogan’s history of using the N-word is comparable to the storming of the U.S. Capitol. Yes, really. John Blake, a senior and producer for CNN, published a column on Sunday that begins thusly: “The podcaster Joe Rogan did not join a mob that forced lawmakers to flee for their lives. He never carried a Confederate flag inside the US Capitol rotunda. No one died trying to stop him from using the n-word. But what Rogan and those that defend him have done since video clips of him using the n-word surfaced on social media is arguably just as dangerous as what a mob did when they stormed the US Capitol on January 6 last year.” Blake, of course, is referring to the public fallout surrounding the resurfaced tapes of Rogan using the N-word multiple times over the years. The embattled podcaster has apologized for using the term, but as Blake noted in his piece, Rogan has derided the outrage as a “political hit job.” Blake’s...
    A CNN headline on Sunday compared Joe Rogan's use of the "N-word" in several episodes of his show to January 6.  The article, which is classified as an analysis, is titled, "Joe Rogan's use of the n-word is another January 6 moment." The analysis opened by noting Rogan "did not join a mob" and rush and deface the Capitol, before nonetheless making the comparison. CNN has since changed the headline to read, "Why shrugging off Joe Rogan's use of the n-word is so dangerous." "But what Rogan and those that defend him have done since video clips of him using the n-word surfaced on social media is arguably just as dangerous as what a mob did when they stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6 last year," CNN senior writer John Blake wrote.    SPOTIFY CEO APOLOGY LETTER TO EMPLOYEES OVER JOE ROGAN CALLED CONTRADICTORY: ‘PR SLEIGHT OF HAND’ PASADENA, CALIFORNIA - AUGUST 07: Comedian Joe Rogan performs during his appearance at The Ice House Comedy Club on August 07, 2019 in Pasadena, California.

No one died trying to stop him from using the n-word. But what Rogan and those that defend him have done since video clips of him using the n-word surfaced on social media is arguably just as dangerous as what a mob did when they stormed the US Capitol on January 6 last year. Rogan breached a civic norm that has held America together since World War II. It's an unspoken agreement that we would never return to the kind of country we used to be.

    A former US Olympic snowboarder accused a Team USA coach and teammate of sexual misconduct and racism, triggering an internal investigation by US Ski and Snowboarding. In a series of Instagram posts this week, some which have been removed, Callan Chythlook-Sifsof, 32 who competed in the 2010 Winter Olympics, said she could not watch this year's games because of coach Peter Foley and Olympian Hagen Kearney.  She accused Foley of taking naked pictures of female athletes for decades and Kearney of using the n-word frequently and making rape jokes about female teammates.    'This is the truth,' Chythlook-Sifsof wrote on Instagram.  'I will not carry this stuff around anymore, there was bizarre behavior across the board. The people I've named have overtly behaved toxically but the truth is the culture on the team protected this behavior.  'Other athletes have in engaged in racist, misogynist behavior, actively participated in the strange dynamics that Peter Foley created and caused female athletes/staff to be victims of sexual violence.'   Foley has repeatedly denied the allegations, telling Newsweek: 'I'm surprised by the allegations.

    (CNN)English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur has told supporters it is time to "move on" from using the "Y-word" -- deemed anti-Semitic -- after conducting a review of the term among the club's fanbase.The review, which had over 23,000 responses, found that 94% of those surveyed acknowledged the Y-word can be considered a racist term against a Jewish person, the club said on Thursday. The word "yid" has inoffensive origins within the Jewish community, but it took on a new meaning in the 1930s -- especially in the UK -- when it was used as a derogatory term for a Jew or a person of Jewish origin. UK anti-Semitism reaches record high in 2021, report says A north London-based club, Tottenham is known for having a large number of Jewish supporters and Spurs fans, both Jewish and non-Jewish, have adopted the words "Yid," "Yiddo" and "Yid Army" as a proud self-identifiers in an attempt to nullify the derogatory meaning."Our supporters' use of the Y-word was initially taken as a positive step to deflect anti-Semitic abuse that they were subjected to...

    SPURS have called on fans to stop using the racial term “Y**”. Tottenham supporters adopted the “Y-word” in the 1970s as a badge of honour in response to repeated anti-semitism from rival fans. 1The Club have called on Spurs fans to stop using the racial termCredit: AFP Spurs have long been associated with a large Jewish fan base, with some waving the Star of David as a signal of that heritage. Supporters sing songs about “Being a Y**” and chant “Y** army” even though a minority of Tottenham fans are Jewish. But some rival fans used that as an excuse to conflate Tottenham and Judaism and abuse with blatant anti-semitic songs and chants. And now the club, which had long backed supporters using the term, has changed its position and urged it to cease. In a statement to supporters on its website, Spurs said: “We are living in times of heightened awareness of cultural appropriation and sensitivities.  “It is therefore crucial to the values of our Club and our fans that we are even more mindful of the controversial nature...

    Embattled  Joe Rogan claimed in his most recent podcast that he is a 'victim,' and called a video compilation of him using the 'N-word' a 'political hit job.' Rogan, 54, has come under fire in recent weeks after artist India.Arie posted a video compilation of all the times he used the 'N-word' on The Joe Rogan Experience with the hashtag #DeleteSpotify.  The podcaster said in his episode on Tuesday that the release of the now-viral video is 'in a lot of ways a relief because that video it's always been out there. 'It's like this is a political hit job,' he said. 'And so they're taking all this stuff that I ever said, and it's wrong, and smush it all together.

'Because I think comedians have for years done this immature thing...
    Joe Rogan. When former President Donald Trump defends you, run! It can only mean one thing, and in Joe Rogan’s case, it confirms just how racist he is.  In addition to the worthless trash that comes out of his mouth about “woke culture,” the silencing of “straight white men,” talking shit about the COVID-19 vaccine, the worst of his content has been his blatant and ubiquitous use of the N-word. All of which has caused a bloodletting of several artists to leave Spotify, including Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Nils Lofgren, India.Arie, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, and Failure.  Even Rogan admits he’s “a fucking moron,” so now he’s on an apology tour, one that includes a nonapology and a lot of denials about being a racist. So who comes to his defense? That’s right: the 45th president. The guy who’s referred to one of his MAGA followers as “my Black,” and was called by Washington Post columnist Colbert I. King: “the most racist president in modern history.”  Trump’s great advice to Rogan reads in part:  “Joe Rogan is an interesting and popular guy, but he’s...
    Former President Trump has said podcast Joe Rogan should 'stop apologizing'. 'Joe Rogan is an interesting and popular guy, but he's got to stop apologizing to the Fake News and Radical Left maniacs and lunatics,' Trump began. 'How many ways can you say you're sorry? Joe, just go about what you do so well and don't let them make you look weak and frightened. That's not you and it never will be!' Trump wrote in a statement on Monday night.  On Saturday, Rogan has apologized after musical artist India Arie shared a compilation of Rogan where he could be heard repeatedly using the N-word on his podcast over the years.  He could then be heard making a joke about the movie 'Planet of the Apes' as he recalled a time when he was dropped off in a black neighborhood. On Monday, former President Donald Trump said Rogan, who has apologized for using the N-word, shouldn't apologize anymore Writing on Gab, Trump said Rogan should stop apologizing and 'just go about' what he's doing The video compilation emerged when artist India.Arie posted...

    A compilation of video clips featuring controversial podcaster Joe Rogan using the N-word has made Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson rescind his previous support of Rogan and his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.” Until Rogan’s racist comments surfaced, Johnson was one of the only mainstream figures to show Rogan support amid an exodus of artists from Spotify in protest of Rogan’s spread of COVID-19 misinformation. Last week, Johnson commented on an Instagram video of Rogan addressing the controversy around his podcast, writing, “Great stuff here, brother. Perfectly articulated.” He even added that he looked forward to “breaking out the tequila” with Rogan and appearing on his podcast. Johnson retracted his support of Rogan after singer India Arie shared several clips of Rogan using the N-word on his podcast, as well as one clip comparing predominantly Black neighborhoods to the “Planet of the Apes.” In a tweet responding to Don Winslow, Johnson wrote: “I was not aware of his N-word use before my comments, but now I’ve become educated to his complete narrative. Learning moment for me.”

    New York, NY (CNN)Joe Rogan issued an apology on Instagram Saturday after artist India Arie posted a compilation of the podcaster frequently using the N-Word on his podcast. Rogan used the word more than 20 times in the clips, which he said were compiled over a span of 12 years.

    Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough appeared to be surprised and delighted by the curious and out-of-the-blue insult lobbied his way by former President Donald Trump Monday morning. Scarborough set up Jonathan Lemire beautifully to introduce the absurdity of the moment, throwing to his co-host with “I can’t wait to hear what the 45th president decided was worthy to write about this morning on MLK day.” Trump released the following statement early Monday morning that read: Will Morning Joe be canceled? He and Mika’s ratings are very low—they are having an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the Fake News they spurn. Losing them would be very sad—hope it doesn’t happen! On another front, looks like Unjoy Reid, the racist commentator on MSDNC (MSNBC), is toast. Her stupidity is only surpassed by her absolute lack of television persona. She never had it, and never will. The only thing she’s good at is spewing racist hate but obviously, no one is listening! If you think “spurn” is the wrong word choice intended here, you would not be alone as...
    Fox and Friends on Friday spent a good deal of time decrying a new Microsoft Word feature that checks text for non-inclusive phrasing and suggests corrections in much the way a spelling or grammar check work. The feature detects words or phrases that might be considered non-inclusive or offensive, underlining the text with a purple line and offering suggested alternative phrasing. The news was teased many times, and they covered it twice, once a bit jokingly among the hosts, and a second time in an interview of author and tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who took the topic to a considerably more serious place. “Microsoft Word has added a new inclusiveness feature that highlights phrases that might offend someone based on gender in their mind. Age, sexual orientation or ethnicity – goes down the list,” said Brian Kilmeade. Addressing the topic to Ramaswamy, Kilmeade added, “I can’t believe there’s 250 million Microsoft users, and now they’re going to be corrected if they’re not using politically correct terms.” “Well, George Orwell said it well, Brian, the way to first control a...
    Author Vivek Ramaswamy sounded off Friday on "Fox & Friends" after Microsoft introduced new software to correct some terms seen as not politically correct. The effort is aimed at pushing users away from offensive terms and phrases, including "postman," "mankind" and "heroine." GOOGLE, TWITTER EMPLOYEES FLOOD DEMOCRATS WITH DONATIONS VIVEK RAMASWAMY: This is a mechanism of mind control. And look, am I really bothered or staying up in bed at night because of any one of those examples? Of course not. But it's another example of the power that these tech titans have to control the entire mind of a society. And I think the fact that they're using it to advance this political agenda is something that we've got to see through. You've frequently heard from people over the last couple of years, 'great, if you don't like the product, stop using it.' Well, I think that hasn't actually been realistic when you have network effects to these products. But at some point that dam is going to break and you're actually going to see somebody take them up...
    A prominent black conservative has been banned from MAGA social media site Gettr for using the N-word in his profile after the app promoted itself as a 'cancel-free zone.'  Jon Miller, a black right-wing pundit and former Blaze TV host, was forced to take to rival site Twitter to expose the 'free speech frauds' at Gettr after his account was suspended.   He claimed that he was booted for 'no reason' and didn't create any posts using the slur, though admitted he used the N-word as part of his profile.  'Guess I was too critical of them for suspending others? What does it say when the 1st platform to ban me is the one that sells itself as the free speech alternative?' Miller tweeted with a photo showing the notice of his suspension.  Gettr's global communications director Ebony Bowden quickly fired back on Twitter, accusing him of using the racial slur on the site.  'You are a liar @MillerStream. You did use our platform, and you included the N-word in your profile, a clear violation of our terms of service. GETTR...
    THERE'S a new word on the block that everyone's using on TikTok. You may have heard it already on the video sharing app, as the term has recently risen to prominence. 2Many of TikTok's own users don't appear to know what abow means eitherCredit: @iminlov3witmyself So where does it come from and what does it actually mean? Where does abow come from? The popularity of the word abow actually started on TikTok thanks to a song. It's a twist on a little known rap called Blow the Whistle by 810Smoke. In it, a singer is heard saying: "He told me throw it back, abow." Some people also appear to be confused about the pronunciation. It's said the same way as if bowing for someone, so "I had to do a bow before the Queen".
