Politics: Bernie Sanders Rally In South Bronx With Rosario Dawson, Spike Lee And More (Video)

I’m very excited about the fact that I don’t have to vote against someone… that I get to vote for someone… who’s on our side… who marched with Martin Luther King… who can draw a crowd that makes me dizzy with happiness and love and excitement.
Rosario Dawson

Feel that? It’s the Bern! Great lead-off to an hour-strong ‘Bernie Sanders For President’ rally in the South Bronx (New York) by the uber-sexy (yes) actor-activist Rosario Dawson. Spike Lee and other noteworthy folks were on hand. Thousands of fanatic supporters. And the Senator-Who-Would-Be-President, Bernie Sanders.

Coming for those electors, New York. Game on, Hillary. This is it! Press play #FeelTheBern

Muslim Counter-Protest Strategy: Kindness Conquers Hate And Fear (Video)

So, another dope clip from AJ+ shows up in my Facebook feed: This time about a one-woman Anti-Muslim protest outside a mosque in Ohio. Police were on hand, and it could have gone badly but… well, I won’t spoil the clip. However, what I will do is embed The Young Turks commentary on the clip above. Sure, they have a boldly liberal slant on almost all things; but I always admire the way they come with a combination level-headed delivery and passion in their interpretation. Same here. The original clip, which I’m betting you will love, appears after the jump. But TYT head honcho Cenk and analyst Ana above… They will make you think. Good stuff!

One of the anti-Muslim rallies that happened in the country didn’t have the best turnout. A protest in Ohio only attracted one demonstrator. She was greeted by Muslim protestors who wanted to educate her on their religion. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

What Does ‘Gender Parity’ Mean? Women ‘Go Topless’ and Demonstrate in NYC (Video) [NSFW]

maxresdefault

Above: Video of the ‘2012 Go Topless Day Rally’ In New York City. Started in 2007, the celebration and protest actually pushes an agenda of equal rights for the sexes in another way. Simply put, a breast is a breast – be it male or female. In fact, for the NYPD, ‘breast exposure is not considered public lewdness, indecent exposure, or disorderly conduct.’ In fact, the New York cops have been instructed to protect topless protesters like others marching for rights.

‘In 2007, Go Topless, a national organization supporting gender equality in shirtlessness laws, established Go Topless Day. Dozens of women protest – often topless – in thirty cities around the United States, promoting equal rights to be shirtless. Protests usually include chants of “Free your breasts. Free your minds” and a song “Let ‘em Breathe” to the tune of the Beatles’ “Let it Be.”
