Stunning Video: Ashes and Snow

Dreamlike encounters
Arts • Views: 27,619

Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow feature film captures extraordinary moments of contact between people and animals as seen through the lens of the artist’s camera on more than thirty expeditions to some of the earth’s most remote places. Written, directed, produced, and filmed by Gregory Colbert, it is a poetic field study that depicts the world not as it is, but as it might be—a world in which the natural and artificial boundaries separating humans from other species do not exist. The viewing experience is one of wonder and contemplation, serenity, and hope.

Edited by two-time Oscar-winner Pietro Scalia; narrated by actors Laurence Fishburne (English), Enrique Roche (Spanish), and Ken Watanabe (Japanese). Musical collaborators include Michael Brook, David Darling, Heiner Goebbels, Lisa Gerrard, Lukas Foss, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and Djivan Gasparyan.

Meet the Sandy Hook Truthers

Hideously evil monsters mock families for grieving
Wingnuts • Views: 33,940

The people creating this insidious conspiracy need help, but they might be so evil that they are beyond all help and hope. The number of videos promoting this sick lie are growing every day, and they are mostly from people who hate our president.

Yes, there really are Newtown truthers.

But in the crazy world of Sandy Hook conspiracy theories, this one may be the worst yet. (Maybe you’ve already heard some of the others, like the one about fantasy ties between the gunman’s family and the LIBOR banking scandal and a related theory about the Aurora shooting and the “Dark Knight Rises.”) Most of the theories are really pieces of a larger meta-theory: that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, perhaps by the Obama administration, designed to stir demand for gun control.

In the latest angle, theorists think they have found “absolute proof” of a conspiracy to defraud the American people. “You reported in December that this little girl had been killed,” a reader emailed Salon in response to a story. “She has been found, and photographed with President Obama.”

The girl in question is Emilie Parker, a 6-year-old who was shot multiple times and killed at Sandy Hook. But for conspiracy theorists, the tears her family shed at her funeral, the moving eulogy from Utah’s governor, and the entire shooting spree are fake. Welcome to the world where Sandy Hook didn’t really happen.

There are dozens of websites, blog posts and YouTube videos extolling the Emilie Parker hoax theory. If you Google her name, the very first result is a post mocking her father for crying at a press conference after the shooting. One popular video, which already has 134,000 views, was made by the producers of a popular 9/11 Truther film. “Just as the movie ‘Operation Terror’ shows the 9/11 attacks were a made-for-TV event, so too were the mass shootings … There can be no doubt that Sandy Hook was a staged event,” the narrator intones. He goes on to say that the adults who participated in the media coverage of the shootings “should be prosecuted as accessories after the fact in a mass murder” — i.e., the parents whose children were murdered in the massacre should be thrown in prison.

#Breitbart.com Incites Another Deluge of Misogynist Hate Speech Against Lena Dunham

These people are not right in the head
Wingnuts • Views: 26,647

The Breitbrats really have it in for actress Lena Dunham; she’s one of their recurring targets, along with Sandra Fluke and Soledad O’Brien. Something about assertive, unashamed liberal women seems to get under their skin, big time.

After Dunham made a mildly racy advertisement endorsing Barack Obama for President, Ben Shapiro penned a nutty blue-nosed rant, saying the ad was “demeaning to women” and showed that Dunham “cared only about sex.”

That Shapiro tirade prompted an outpouring of hideous woman-hating comments from the knuckle-dragging Breitbart audience, of course, so they’re at it again, keeping the right wing base engaged and interested in the issues that matter.

This time, “Breitbart News” doesn’t seem to quite understand that actors are not the same as the characters they play: FOR LENA DUNHAM’S ‘GIRLS’ CHARACTER, DATING REPUBLICANS LIKE DATING NAZIS.

Lena Dunham, creator of the HBO sitcom “Girls,” has stated that the character she plays would view dating a black Republican the same way as dating a Nazi.

OMG! Outrage!

Dunham went on to say that she doesn’t feel this way herself, it’s a character, but the Breitbrats aren’t buying it.

When the interviewer follows up on that phrase, Dunham clarifies that while she is progressive, she does not have the same blanket “ignorance” she is satirizing through her character.

There you go, imply that this elitist liberal actress is insulting them personally! That ought to get the cavemen riled up.

And sure enough:

She’s a skank so who gives a whip. Just seeing the HBO label kinda gives me a WTF feeling so I didn’t read it I just know a good lap dog when I see on and a racist.

[…]

I wonder when this sleazy tramp will be showing genital warts on her face? Just HIV bait like most of her unHolywood contomporaries.

[…]

A conservative man would be repulsed by the flies buzzing around her lady parts, even after her whore bath, so saying the character she plays should not date a Republican is irrelevant. Now, had she said her character COULD NOT date a Republican it would have been accurate because no Republican man would date her, regardless of whether or not she was attracted to someone who opposed killing unborn babies or was opposed to rump ranger and twisted sister unions. Nice try at asserting your liberal ideals though. Now scamper along to your local Planned Parenthood Tattoo Piercing Parlor and have a spa day.

[…]

This from a girl who’s willing to sleep with the whole 7th fleet.

[…]

Dating Lena Dunham is like dating a fish market.

[…]

I have no respect for someone who can afford to buy clothes and makeup and go to bars and yet want the American people to pay for her birth control pills (like paying for her tuition is not enough) and any abortion she may need to have just because she was too drunk to have responsible sex.

[…]

Considering what she looks like, she would be exceedingly lucky to have a black republican interested in dating her. In her silly video about her “first time”, I personally thought she looked gay. The person interested in this chick would likely have very short hair, lady parts, and a tattoo that says Skank on her inner thigh. Who is she kidding?

[…]

This ugly hag gets lucky now she starts talking shiit…hope she saves her money

[…]

No self respecting Nazi would waste the time…

[…]

This is what happens when you put an ugly pear shaped chick in front of a camera. She’s not a six packer—she’s a 12-packer—and I am talking 12 high alcohol imports

[…]

This homely looking person is a hater, she should be tard and feathered and thrown in to the cesspool Chicago with the rest of the haters.

[…]

I wouldn’t f*ck Lena Dunham with her own d*ck.

[…]

This little piggy can’t even fasten the top hook of her dress…

[…]

She doesn’t date anyone. She strips for money and calls it art. She’s a glorified prostitute.

[…]

You don’t have to worry about dating any of us, Dunham. Bestiality ain’t our bag.

[…]

Nazi’s didn’t allow whore houses did they?

[…]

No, but they encouraged breeding by couples of good Aryan stock. Dunham would have been off the hook, because her stock is through the floor.

And on and on and on — there are hundreds more disgusting comments like this. This is the right wing base in 2013.

Colin Powell: The GOP Has a ‘Dark Vein of Intolerance’

Off the rails
Politics • Views: 24,202

After watching Colin Powell interviewed on today’s Meet the Press, the only real question that remains is: why does he still consider himself a Republican? Because I can guarantee that most Republicans don’t see him that way; they see him as a traitor.

Eventually, Powell and David Frum and the other vanishing “moderate Republicans” are going to have to face facts and realize that their party has left them behind, on a march toward extremism, racism, and conspiracy theories. This is the Republican Party of the 21st century.
