Dumb headlines thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

House passes broad anti-hate resolution after pressure from Omar allies

Given that Omar is a woman, misogyny is a serious issue and the resolution opposes prejudice, maybe they should have called it a 'comprehensive anti-hate resolution'. :wave:
So now you can't be anti-Israel without being anti-semitic, and thus can't follow the centuries-old Greek tradition of despising Turkey without being anti-Islam.

Despite all the kerfuffle about it being said outloud, I haven't heard anybody deny that Israel tries to buy influence.
I know that it's all been a BS attack on an outspoken Muslim Black woman, of course, so I haven't followed it closely. However, I did hear that the 'dual loyalty' argument has been particularly used by anti-Semites, and that may be true. That said, it does NOT mean that lobbying by US Jews against the interests of Americans can't ever be discussed for eternity.

I'm glad that the House went with a comprehensive anti-hate resolution that also condemns Islamophobia and white supremacy. Not that it's being reported this way, but that is a direct slap to POSPOTUS and his Trumpettes.
It really is time to stop being nice about stupidity.

Never mind, somebody noticed:

Trump calls House vote condemning hate 'a disgrace'

The Sierra Club - North Carolina Chapter newsletter includes an article with the headline:
NC’s youth step out to demand climate action

Cool, but here's the pic they used:

Walmart plans to add thousands of robot helpers to U.S. stores

Doesn't Walmart need robot customers before robot helpers will do them any good?
