We've all seen from experience that politicians lie, it's what they do best.

However, it seems since Trump, that the lying goes even further.  They are willing to lie about things that can be easily fact-checked, and they don't care about getting caught.

and forget about remose.

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. - Karl R. Popper

Matty McLean is a reporter/newsman on TV1NZ, the main TV station owned by the government. At the moment he is mainly on Breakfast TV which I never watch but often fills in on the main current affairs program after the evening news which I always watch.
I have long know he is gay
He got married last night.

Man who threatened mass shooting against gay people at Florida State University arrested by FBI

Jeff Burlew - 01/04/2023


A Winter Park man who admitted posting an image of a semi-automatic rifle with threats to kill gay people in a mass shooting at Florida State University was arrested by the FBI.

Sean Michael Albert, 19, was arrested Tuesday on a federal charge of making an interstate communication to threaten to injure another person, according to court records. During a hearing Wednesday in federal court in Orlando, U.S. Magistrate Judge Embry Kidd ordered him to be detained until trial.

The criminal complaint says that on Dec. 16, the FBI in Orlando got a tip about a threat made several days earlier on Discord, an instant-messaging and social-media platform popular among gamers and also members of the alt-right.

The post consisted of a photo of an AR-15 or similar weapon along with a caption that included a threat against gay people, though a slur was used to refer to them. The post was written by someone using the moniker “BloodStainedSand#0088.”

^^^ Sadly with dangerous DeathSantis stoking the anti-LBGTQUIA fires in GOP-rampant, insane-bat-shit crazy FL every chance he can, my gut says, this captured "suspect" will not be the only example.  There's more of "them easily influenced crazy-apples" in that FL bin.  I'm damn glad they caught him before he acted! People need to be and feel safe regardless of their being.   V.

Marjorie Taylor Greene attends anti-trans rally with tiny crowd in Washington

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene continued her long history of attacks on LGTBQ+ people this week, appearing at a rally at the Capitol featuring a number of anti-trans activists. The event, however, does not appear to have had a large turnout, drawing a crowd of about a dozen people.

On Wednesday, the Georgia Republican joined a rally with figures such as Chloe Cole, an activist who has become a right-wing star after de-transitioning, and Tiffany Justice of Moms for Liberty, a group that has organised opposition to mask mandates, gender education, and critical race theory in public schools.

Strange but true, Fritz. It's because the crazies are all jazzed up about transgender people in sports.

On the up side it may be the first time they've ever paid attention to women's sports.

We are in the era of "weird sense" I fear.

Here's an article from the BBC (note: also the Sports section) that goes into the debate:

Panti Bliss makes Dancing with the Stars history in Ireland’s first same-sex pairing

"Panti Bliss, the drag persona of Rory O’Neill, has made Dancing with the Stars history after taking to the stage as part of Ireland’s first same-sex pairing. Coupled with Ukrainian pro, Denys Samson, the Queen of Ireland closed out the first week of the show’s highly anticipated sixth series, performing the cha-cha-cha to Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ on the eve of Sunday, January 8.

Boasting a reputation as a gifted performer, it is no surprise that Panti’s display impressed the judging panel of Loraine Barry, Brian Redmond, and Arthur Gourounlian. She scored a total of 23 points, placing her in joint second place, level with Suzanne Jackson."
