Darn you, modern printshop technology! It’s even better if you can listen to the mocking commentary by the film-taker.

… In a statement provided to BuzzFeed News, a spokesperson for GoDaddy said that Spencer was given 48 hours to transfer the Altright.com domain to a different host before it was removed…
Spencer told BuzzFeed News that he has not yet found a new host for the site.
“We’re working on solving the problem, and solving it in a permanent way. So this might take some time,” Spencer said…
The removal of Altright.com comes only a few weeks after Facebook removed two Facebook pages associated with Spencer. The takedown was first reported by Vice, which said the pages were removed after the outlet contacted Facebook about hate groups using the platform…
Tech platforms have been locked in a back-and-forth with far-right internet communities since the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last summer. The Daily Stormer, an infamous neo-Nazi website, has continued to have similar issues with hosting. GoDaddy suspended the site’s hosting the same week that Google canceled the site’s domain registration in August last year.
The loss of Spencer’s internet hosting also comes only two days after he was removed from the WePay online payment service, effectively cutting his main revenue stream. Spencer is also currently embroiled in a lawsuit following the events of the “Unite the Right” rally. Unable to find a lawyer who would defend him, Spencer is representing himself.…

… The jury recommended a sentence of 10 years, with the option of suspending some of the time, and a $20,000 fine. The presiding judge, Richard E. Moore, will set the sentence on Aug. 23…
The assault on Harris, 20, a former special education instructional assistant, was so ferocious that he suffered a spinal injury, a broken arm and head lacerations that required eight staples.
Online footage of the beating has been viewed online tens of thousands of times and attracted a group of online sleuths, led by Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King. They tracked down the alleged perpetrators’ identities, including that of Goodwin, who lives in Ward, Ark. Goodwin was arrested about two months after the rally…
When Goodwin took the stand, he told the jury he’d seen Harris assault Crews and then saw Harris charging toward him.
“I thought he was a hostile. . . . To be honest, I was terrified,” Goodwin said, adding that he thought, “I’d probably perish or be sent to the hospital and be terribly hurt.”
He said he engaged in self-defense and felt he had only one choice, which was to kick Harris four times while Harris was falling down on the garage floor and scrambling to get back up multiple times…
Three other men have been also been arrested in connection to the attack on charges including felonious assault to malicious wounding: Alex Michael Ramos of Georgia, whose trial began Wednesday; and Daniel Borden of Ohio and Tyler Watkins Davis of Florida, who face trials this summer…
The first VR Google Doodle honors Georges Méliès, the silent filmmaker who pioneered science fiction and fantasy films using both camera trickery and good old-fashioned stage magic.
You don’t need any kind of VR equipment to watch — you can just click and drag on the screen like it’s a 360 photograph.
I see on youtube that there is a growing demand for ‘Rudy experts’ as pundits on the news talkies.
Will be a growing job opportunity field, I think. These guys could move on to that.
Also, I hope this verdict convinces the two perpetrators who are waiting to go on trial to take a plea bargain so the victim and his family don’t have to sit through two additional trials.
Though you have to “love” (gag) that he tried to use the old I thought that Black man had superpowers! claim that got the cops who beat Rodney King off. I guess having three of your buddies also beating and kicking the guy makes your “self defense” claim look shaky to a jury.
@Mnemosyne: The black buy had dangerous hostile superpowers while he was falling down some stairs away from the perpetrators? I think that is what happened. The lesson is, I guess, that superpower are really really scary. But not scary enough to fool this particular jury.
Edit: Superman would be able to fly up the stairs backwards and and knock you out with a reverse elbow punch using the back of of his head vision. Everyone knows black people have those kinds of superpowers. Many people are saying that.
I saw that top video linked yesterday but didn’t have time to watch it. Just did–it’s hilarious. Ridicule is one of the best tactics against these fascists. Plus, they’re lame and dumb.
Thank goodness some of the white supremacists have been found guilty and will have to pay for their actions.
Ugh…my pet peeve…when folks say “with all due respect” when they know thay bout to say something mad disrespectful!!
Good on April Ryan, for da clap back!
@Yarrow: Probably a good thing he didn’t try shooting the sign.
@Yarrow: Agreed. I don’t usually turn the sound on, and I am glad AL recommended it, because the woman narrating was great.
If you didn’t catch this short documentary on Jacob Goodwin’s parents, it is worth seeing.
They are unreal
Ooooh that will leave a mark!
NBC walking back the wire tap story:
Steve in the ATL
@lamh36: along with “no offense but…”
Smedley Darlington Prunebanks (formerly Mumphrey, et al.)
Jesus, the poor dumbfuck didn’t even have the brains to just throw away the sign. Sad! #MAGA!
Damn NBC…smh…this is all they need for Faux News to blair their FAKE NEWS headline…
The explanation is as funny as the skit!
Danai was born in Africa so she really may not get the joke.
@Smedley Darlington Prunebanks (formerly Mumphrey, et al.): Well, I’m thinking that he has a mental picture of himself as a victorious, dominant, virile he-man ripping up a sign with subversive words and colors. And just can’t let go of that image.
@lamh36: The race to be able to write “SCOOP” is resulting in a lot of sloppy journalism that plays into the right wing’s hands.
This is my potato salad recipe. I think I would get a lot of How is that even potato salad? remarks. ?
The Moar You Know
You MUST listen to the woman narrating. She is a hero and a half. Castrated his ass with sweet, sweet verbiage. Just the most savage verbal beatdown I’ve heard in years.
MaryG posted a Twitter link to the actual letter:
If Ryan was actually a Catholic, he would have known better than to fuck with a Jesuit. They do. not. play.
If the Trumpsters yell ‘absence of evidence is not evidence of absence’ and now demand an investigation into whether HRC covered up a hush payment to a porn star before the election, I think it’s time for mass demonstrations and a general strike. Because, well,, there would be public health crisis with people having nervous breakdowns and becoming too disoriented to perform the normal activities of daily living.
OK, I’m posting this hilarious dog clip here again.
@Mnemosyne: ah…ya lost it at “Ceasar”…LOL
Funny enough, I don’t really like potato salad, so usually, I don’t eat it, but when I do eat it, it has to be made by my ONE fav auntie. Anyone else…ah…no…
And definitely NOT an office pot luck potato salad…NOPE.
@lamh36: I make sweet potato salad!
It’s really good, but not what people think of when they think of “potato salad.” Omnes would like it since it has no mayonnaise.
ETA: If you like Caesar salad but wish it had more starch, it’s the right one. ?
Odds are at least 50/50 this sign was posted by someone who refused to vote against the fascists because Hillary only wanted to raise the minimum wage by $5 an hour, but that’s none of my business. (Sips iced tea)
@Mnemosyne: I’m fond of the Austrian vinegar-based kind myself.
@raven: yeah…no..lol…some folks here put sweet relish in their potato salad…but it’s regular ole potatos, not sweet potatos
@B.B.A.: As a general rule, a potato salad is a good salad, IMHO.
I like Mnem’s type of potato salad, but my personal version is even more depraved. You chop up crispy lettuce and mix it in. Lots of garlic. Maybe some wasabi too.
And green onions.
@Mnemosyne: that’s def one of the reasons I don’t at potato salad or chicken salad, or tuna salad much if at all…I’m not a fan of Mayo
@lamh36: ” some folks here put sweet relish in their potato salad ”
OK, let me get this straight now. You just typed that, but you are doubting on Mnem’s potato salad.
Something don’t fit there.
@lamh36: Not a mayo fan either, I like a mustard based potato salad.
What’s to be expert about Rudi? He’s a bullying asshole, period.
@jl: Black folk here in NOLA…yes.
@lamh36: Mayo is the devil’s condiment.
I love how Talcum X is called a BLM activist. Lord.
@lamh36: I must confess, I’m Jamerican and I thought it was hilarious, but I really never knew there was such fervor over potato salad.
… we will fight you over implying Puerto Rican rum is better than ours tho.
@lamh36: Thanks. That is me with potato salad with sweet relish. But it’s potato salad, so I’ll get up the courage and dive in after I finish rolling my eyes. I mean, it’s potato salad, so you have to try it out.
You’d probably like the Caesar version, then. Next time, I might add some roasted pepitas and add a little chipotle sauce to the dressing to make it a little more Mexican. ?
Mayonnaise is excellent, providing it’s Hellman’s.
Ceci n est pas mon nym
@B.B.A.: There’s a family story associated with that kind of potato salad. Not that interesting a story except that it was the day in 1978 I met the girl I am still married to, so German Potato Salad (as we know it) is all wrapped up in those memories.
Personally I like curried potato salad. And I’m with T’Challa, I don’t raisins or apples or grapes in my potato or chicken salad.
I for one, on principle, approve of all these damn potato salads, because, potato salad.
You think Potato Salad is sacred, see Macaroni & Cheese.
He left out the best line in the skit:”She will probably add something unnecessary, like raisins.”
I couldn’t stop laughing!
You may consider me an ally in this fight.
This is simply not true.
@lamh36: Has Greenwald jumped all over the correction as proof that this is MCCARTHYISM?
SMH. You cannot have a peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich without the mayonnaise.
@debbie: WTF? That abomination is an obvious cry for help.
@debbie: Thank God that is not a potato salad. Otherwise I’d feel the urge to try it out.
@Omnes Omnibus: I really am NOT a fan. At the most, I use it to cut the mustard on a sandwich. I do like mustard, but is can be tart and salty…and the sandwich can be a bit dry…
How about tuna fish with mayonnaise and cinnamon?
No Drought No More
I mentioned Keith Richards in a thread yesterday, and that I’ve read his autobiography. I’ve decided a great subtitle for future editions would be: The Proud Nail*. British cops were once told Richards was a butterfly on a wheel that they were unjustly trying to destroy. To this day, if they were honest, they’d say, no, they had tried to kill a cockroach after a nuclear war, and that he lived to take their surrender.
*(as in, “meets hammer”).
@raven: and the recipe is?
You know that Hellman’s only hires clowns for their assembly line, right.
@lamh36: Mayo actually triggers my gag reflex. I cannot abide it. I can completely relate to this
@efgoldman: That would explain a lot.
Best Foods west of the Rockies(its the same thing).
Steve in the ATL
@Omnes Omnibus: huh. I always thought you were white!
@Steve in the ATL:
Closer to translucent.
I knew I loved you.
Say no to mayo.
1 ½ pounds fingerling potatoes
1 ¼ teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 small red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
2 green onions (thinly sliced)
½ jalapeno pepper (seeded and minced)
½ cup cilantro leaf (loosed packed and coarsely chopped)
@Omnes Omnibus: YESSS… Undercover Brother…SOOOO undervalued as a movie.
EVERY LINE from Dave Chappelle as Conspiracy Brotha…is QUOTEABLE and hilarious!!!
@lamh36: I’m guessing that they just let Chappelle ad lib most of those lines.
All Potato Salads are abominations against the term salad.
What does that make Canada, then?
All Rums are equally good.
@debbie: “America’s Goombah.”
Missing the ham, bologna and American cheese.
@TenguPhule: Really, you just “All Rums Mattered” her?
@VeniceRiley: Say no to bell peppers. Satan’s armpit of fruits classified as vegetables it is.
@Omnes Omnibus: I like rum. A lot.
@debbie: I like peanut butter a lot, and I love mayonaise, but I cannot imagine combining them.
I read your comment to my husband because I was so appalled, and he screamed “Peanut butter and mayonaise is awesome!”
Almost twenty years of marriage and I just learned this.
@Mary G: that particular incident might not have been a wire tap, but what are the odds that there isn’t a wire tap?
Adding, and how do we know that the “senior officials” cited for the walk back aren’t John Barron and friends?
Hellman’s. Best Foods. You savages. The only mayo is homemade. That is the best. All over mayos are blech.
@Omnes Omnibus: This is why some people should be ignored.
@TenguPhule: Please tell me your thoughts on Jello Salads.
@Teddys Person: Crime against Humanity.
@TenguPhule: I thought that might be your position ; )
@Sab: It’s nice there are still surprises after 20 years. Just sayin’
@Shana: What a lovely thought. So true.
Sanity! There is sanity in this world!
Toast the bread and the peanut butter becomes all melty and delicious!
@debbie: Spouse says he never thought of that but probably yes.
I use Medina County as an insult, about people who will never try anything new.
He just pointed out that I am being Medina County about a sandwich.
Mac and cheese is serious. I always ask who made the Mac and cheese.
@lamh36: I watched the whole movie for the first time a couple of days ago on HBO. It was brilliant.
@ruemara: I guess it’s not appropriate for me to mention that I love Miracle Whip on my potato salad because that’s how my mom made it and she made the best potato salad ever.
@Kathleen: America is divided into Miracle Whip v mayonaise. This is known. I assume Omnes and lamh are not on either side?
@raven: I don’t get it. What did I miss?
@Mnemosyne: I hadn’t bothered to look at the recipe because I don’t like mayo, miracle whip, sour cream, etc. But when you said “no mayo”, I had to look. I left the tab open,thinking I might try it.
@WaterGirl: Keep your eyes on the planter and make sure the sound is on.
@raven: @Omnes Omnibus: Thank you! That is hysterical!
@TenguPhule: Oh c’mon. Flor de Can~a from Nicaragua!

Zacapa rum is the best, from Guatemala, 28 years old. No offense, but if you try it, you will see what I mean. Really good.
I make potato salad with a vinegar and oil dressing. If ramps are in season, I mince them as tiny as I can. Else I mince green onions, a little garlic. No mustard, no, no not ever!
This makes a potato salad you can take on a picnic, with no fear of food poisoning because it was allowed to sit out warm, like a mayo based potato salad may. Salt and pepper, that kind of addition as well.
@J R in WV: Anything edible is better with ramps.
ETA my niece is a major ramp supplier in our area. I never knew. She is also a lovely person.
