hot take: Rex Chapman is an unoriginal-tweeting video stealer

he just takes other people's videos and writes the same five captions

HOTTER TAKE: He knows that and after the first few that went viral he gets permission or in most cases it's sent by an OP. He's been pretty open about it all that he has only a few things and can't believe it's gotten so big.

Also, he's raised a bunch of money for charities using his platform.

?

He's fine. I mean, there are some people who still hate him for his opinion about a war seventeen years ago, when he was 22 or something. And others who hate him because he has the audacity to note that the left is getting more and more intolerant of dissenting views and less and less interested in freedom of speech.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

if you changed your password as the bitcoin hacks were happening (like I did) you've been locked out of your account and can't get it reset

I changed to be safe figuring that there was a widespread breach as it was happening. then my account got locked and, like others who changed their passwords, I'm in this endless loop of error messages on twitter. what a disaster.

This is too good.



Context: Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion released a new track and it's kinda viral at the moment. Nothing you haven't heard before from female rappers, but it looks like Little Ben is hitting puberty all of a sudden.

Just curious (but not curious enough to listen to a longer segment of Shapiro), but how does he make the leap to this one song encapsulating the entire purpose of the feminist movement?

Ben Shapiro is infuriating, because he is highly intelligent, seems to believe what he says in the few times I've listened to him, but he always has a missing step in his logic to come up with conclusions, or he just factually misrepresents a strawman Lefty argument that nobody believes. Or, in the case of the Christian baker, he completely misunderstood basic concepts of employment law while touting his expertise because he holds a Harvard Law degree.

There's not a big mystery here. It's because they're black (and proud to be black, more importantly).
