They posted an ad showing a

Canadian airliner pointed at the Toronto skyline with a message that pretty much said, “mind your own business”. They later apologized for their tone deaf ad. I guess the “subtle” 9/11 foreshadowing got to them.

I seriously love shooting down discussions on FreeRepublic.

I have an account there, and I put out inconvenient facts that bring down discussions and pretty much end them.
Tonight, some funny ( ) person put out a satire post about Japanese people fearing a backlash after Pearl Harbor, trying to tie Charlie Hebdo to all Muslims. People were posting back and forth for a while with things like
"Don’t Blame Japanese for Pearl Harbor—It was japanese airplanes that bombed our ships! You can’t blame the whole Island full of people. FDR must send a peace committee to work out new terms and foreign aid to the Japanese Empire."
"America has been calling Japanese products cheap and inferior for years . . . Pearl Harbor was just a natural response to such blatant disrespect."

Is it hilarious? Is it racist? Hilaracist?

My reply to the thread was: "Well, considering between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese descent were interned in the U.S., maybe some fear of backlash was warranted."

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (CBS ST. LOUIS) – A GOP lawmaker in Missouri introduced a bill that requires pregnant women to receive written consent from the father of the child before an abortion can be performed – or in exceptional cases of “legitimate rape.”

State Representative Rick Brattin, a Republican from outside Kansas City, filed the bill on Dec. 3 that proposes, “No abortion shall be performed or induced unless and until the father of the unborn child provides written, notarized consent to the abortion.”
