GOP bill seeks to remove no-fly zone designations for U.S. Disney Parks

A group of congressional Republicans wants the no-fly zone designations for Disneyland and Walt Disney World removed, saying in part that no theme park should receive “special treatment just because they are well-connected.”

The bill, formally known as the Airlines Independent of Restrictions Act or AIR Act, was reintroduced by U.S. Rep. Troy E. Nehls, a Republican from Texas, who first introduced the bill in 2022.

The bill would direct the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, to rescind the no-fly zone designations over the domestic Disney theme parks, which were given to the parks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“Theme parks like Disney should not receive special treatment just because they are well-connected. Our national security should not be compromised to fit the needs of one corporation,” Nehls said in a statement.

KTLA reached out to the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World about the proposed bill but has not heard back.

What the actual fuck??? This is absolute insanity. This shit has got to stop. I live like 20 minutes from Disneyland. Fuck the god damn MAGA conspiracy theory assholes. We've got to get rid of these MAGA assholes in Congress. They are now threate4ning the lives of American citizens who choose to patronize and work at Disney parks. If there is a hell, it waits for them.

Multiple Kohl's in Wisconsin evacuated 'out of an abundance of caution,' police said

Multiple Kohl’s stores were evacuated in southeast Wisconsin after police received information of bomb threats on Friday.

Oak Creek police responded to a threat at Kohl’s on 9035 S Howell Ave. This store and other nearby businesses were evacuated for safety.

Police searched for explosives with K-9 units but did not find "physical evidence to substantiate there was a credible threat to public safety.”

News Chopper 12 flew over the store. Police presence, employees outside the store, and shopping carts blocking the entrance of the parking lot could be observed from the helicopter.

This is the hell that Trump and Fox News have wrought on us. When your protests involve threatening to blow things up and murder people, at that point, it is no longer about "protecting children". And also you also no longer peaceful protestors, you are straight up terrorists. It is way past time to start calling MAGA and its' enablers a terrorist group.

Temecula school board president calls Harvey Milk 'pedophile' before book banning vote

Local News
Temecula school board president calls Harvey Milk 'pedophile' before book banning vote

By Tom Wait, Matthew Rodriguez

An ugly scene played out at the Temecula Valley School Board meeting as they voted 3-2 to reject an elementary school social studies book that contained information about pioneering California gay rights figure Harvey Milk. The board's president made a baseless accusation that Milk was a pedophile before voting to ban the book.

"My question is, why even mention a pedophile?" said Board President Dr. Joseph Komrosky.

Temecula's emotionally charged meeting resembles many others from here in Southern California and across the country as communities demand school boards to limit discussions of race and sexual orientation.

The battle over books has been an ongoing conflict in Republican-controlled states. California Gov. Gavin Newsom interjected himself into the fray last summer in a series of commercials that aired in Florida. Now, he's taking that message directly to educators in the state through a letter directed to superintendents and school administrators. The warning — which was also penned by California State Superintendent Tony Thurmond and Attorney General Rob Bonta — urged them to not take part in the removal of instructional materials.

"Access to books — including books that reflect the diverse experiences and perspectives of Californians, and especially those that may challenge us to grapple with uncomfortable truths — is a profound freedom we all must protect and cultivate," the letter read in part.

Why mention pedophiles? Because he gets all of his news from extremely shitty far right sources like Alex Jones and Steve Bannon.

Ugh, this shit is getting old. Fuck the MAGA GQP conspiracy theory morons. And fuck the book bans too. This is absolutely unconstitutional and getting really scary.

Tax the damn churches already!


They want to preach politics and hate? They pay. Dearly. Fuck you MAGAs!

Oh look, they're gaslighting Jan. 6th again.






Fuck you Marjorie. You can gaslight all you want. Your people destroyed property, threatened to murder Congress people, and killed cops. They're not political prisoners. They're prisoners. A lot of them are getting off light. It's like she just tries to find new ways to be as vile and horrible of a person as possible.

Note to MAGAs:

When your protest involves threatening to blow things up and murder people, you're no longer peaceful protestors, you are terrorists.

It is also no longer about children at that point. If anything, you're making it worse for them.

Winnie the Pooh book teaches Texas kids how to survive school shootings: report

Kids in Dallas, Texas were sent home from school with an unusual item in their backpacks, reported The Guardian: a book that features Winnie-the-Pooh explaining how to survive school shootings.

"Parents and teachers in the Dallas area have expressed alarm and concern that the Stay Safe book, produced by a law enforcement consulting firm in Houston, has been sent home in the backpacks of children in pre-kindergarten and elementary classes," reported Ed Pilkington. "The book features the honey-loving bear created by AA Milne and illustrator EH Shepard instructing kids about how to react to a mass shooting. "

"The subtitle to the Stay Safe book is: 'If there is danger, let Winnie-the-Pooh and his Crew show you what to do: Run Hide Fight,'" said the report. "Run, hide, fight are the tactics advised by the FBI 'should the unthinkable occur.' Inside pages of the book, featuring other characters from the Hundred Acre Wood, tell kids: 'If it is safe to get away, we should RUN like Rabbit instead of stay … If danger is near, do not fear, HIDE like Pooh does until the police appear.' The 'hide' page has a drawing of Pooh burying his head in a pot of honey."

The next page shows Kanga and Roo wearing boxing gloves, with the message, “If danger finds us, don’t stay, run away. If we can’t get away, we have to FIGHT with all our might.”

What. The. Actual. Fuck???? Holy shit, conservatives have lost their damn minds. If I was a parent I'd definitely be raising some serious hell about this. Fuck the NRA and the GOP.

What is the MAGA / GOP obsession with children?

I see literally all around the country that MAGAs are going apeshit about what they're doing to "protect children". But what are they protecting children from?

If it's protecting children from sex, we all know that's bullshit because they're targeting the wrong people. They lose their fucking minds over drag queen story hour, but totally look the other way when youth pastors are involved in child rape and human trafficking, among other egregious crimes.

They're also totally OK with kids getting shot and dying while they are in school. The problem isn't more police. Or fewer windows. Or any of the other bullshit excuses they make every time a mass shooting happens in a school. One should have been enough. But nope, that worthless fucking conspiracy theorist asshole had to go shooting his mouth off that it didn't happen and now things are worse than ever. And they make it worse every time, by abusing the 2nd amendment to placate some bullshit gun fantasies, and make it easier to get guns in the hands of people who shouldn't have them.

In short, the GOP doesn't care about children. They're just using them as a prop to pass these ridiculous laws that are based on nothing. Which will ultimately hurt more children in the long run.They come from the darkest corners of the internet and are based in nothing. It's a step towards genocide. The GOP hasn't protected one kid from one groomer and they fucking know it. It's getting quite embarrassing. We need to stand up to the bullshit now, tomorrow may be too late.

Montana first to ban drag performers from reading to children in schools, libraries

Montana has become the first state to specifically ban people dressed in drag from reading books to children at public schools and libraries, part of a host of legislation aimed at the rights the LGBTQ community in Montana and other states.

Bills in Florida and Tennessee also appear to try to ban drag reading events, but both require the performances to be sexual in nature, which could be up for interpretation. Both bills also face legal challenges.

Montana’s law is unique because — while it defines such an event as one hosted by a drag king or drag queen who reads children’s books to minor children — it does not require a sexual element to be banned.

That makes Montana’s law the first to specifically ban drag reading events, said Sasha Buchert, an attorney with Lambda Legal, a national organization that seeks to protect the civil rights of the LGBTQ+ community and those diagnosed with HIV and AIDS.

This is getting absolutely off the rails insane. Fuck Gianforte.
