American Teenagers Are Using Slam Poetry To Make Sense Of Trump 19.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Given the incessant pace of the internet, and the antics of the current presidential administration, staying up to date with American current events can be exhausting, if not harrowing. Earlier this month, after former FBI director James Comey testified before the  Senate Intelligence Committee , the web was buzzing with familiar hot takes and political predictions, mostly rehashing the same quotes and questions. A young poet by the name of Gordon Ip, however, packaged his take on the breaking news differently, breathing new life into yesterday’s news. “Kushner, Flynn, where does the truth begin?” he said, words flowing with urgency and poise. “Suspicion in the wind, static in our sleep, demanding our dreams, unquestioned loyalty. Our country is full of ‘no questions, please.’” Ip is a member of Get Lit , a troupe of young poets who make and perform slam poetry in and around Los Angeles. The nonprofit organization was launched by Diane Luby Lane in 2006 as an effort to increase literacy among elementary, ...

Democrats Are 'Children Of Satan,' Right-Wing Radio Host Says 19.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
A right-wing radio host dismissed the prayers Democrats offered after last week’s shooting during a Republican baseball practice  in Alexandria, Virginia. “Why would you want to pray with the children of Satan?” Jesse Lee Peterson said in comments posted online by Right Wing Watch. “They serve a different God than you. That’s reality.” Last week’s attack left six people injured, including two lawmakers. One of those wounded, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), remains hospitalized after multiple surgeries and was upgraded from “critical” to “serious” condition over the weekend.  The gunman died.  The violence led to numerous displays of unity among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including shared prayers. But Peterson said Republicans shouldn’t join them. “What are the Democrats praying for? The Democrats are not of God ,” Peterson said. “All of a sudden when Scalise gets shot, when they hear about the shooting, all the children of Satan are going to come together and pray? Please!”  In the past, ...
