And in another "liberal coastal bastion":Actor Peter Dante has been sued by a man who alleges that Dante called him an “old Jew” and a sissy and chased him around a Santa Monica restaurant earlier this month.
Plaintiff Scott Burns’ Santa Monica Superior Court lawsuit alleges assault, defamation-slander and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Burns seeks $1.5 million in damages in the suit brought Thursday.
A representative for the 53-year-old “Grandma’s Boy” actor could not be immediately reached for comment.
On Jan. 3 at about 5:15 p.m., Burns went to Lares, a Mexican food restaurant on Pico Boulevard where he regularly dines, the suit states. Burns, who is elderly and has heart disease, entered through the back door due to management’s COVID-19 safety protocols and was directed to his table after his temperature was taken and he showed his vaccination card, the suit states.
Dante was “purposefully blocking” the area Burns needed to pass through and although the plaintiff excused himself, a visibly drunk Dante began “verbally assaulting” him, according to the suit.
Dante then began asking Burns invasive and personal questions in a menacing tone, and called the plaintiff’s answers “stupid,” the suit states.
“Plaintiff was humiliated in the small space in front of the staff whom he knows well and the other diners,” the suit states.
Dante, who allegedly ignored Burns’ requests to stop talking to him, called the plaintiff a “sissy” and asked if he was going to do anything about it, but Burns responded that he did not want to fight, according to the suit.
Dante made antisemitic remarks about Burns’ appearance, saying he was an “old Jew” with a “Jew nose,” the suit alleges.
Dante later approached Burns’ table and stood over the plaintiff in a threatening manner, leaving Burns feeling he was about to be attacked, the suit states. When Burns told a waiter he was leaving, Dante yelled, “See sissy running away,” according to the suit.
Dante chased Burns around a large table and the plaintiff was able to call the police, telling the operator to stay on the phone with him because he feared for his safety, the suit states.
The restaurant owner’s daughter approached and kept Dante away from Burns, then told the actor, “Pay your bill and get out. You’re out of here,” the suit states.
Nice Catholic girl, it appears.
Let's hope this violent criminal is held accountable. Do note the justifications of the killer & the piece of shit that hasA Connecticut government official gunned down her tenant this week over a rent payment dispute, police say.
Ellen Wink, 61, was arrested Thursday after she allegedly shot and killed a tenant in her building, 54-year-old Kurt Lametta. Police say it was Wink herself who called the police about the shooting at her Norwalk building, where they arrived to find Lametta suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Wink—a local landlord and the city’s deputy Republican registrar of voters—allegedly copped to the shooting, telling them that Lametta was chronically behind on his rent, according to documents obtained by local news station ABC7,
“He’s been my tenant and [expletive] driving me nuts,” she said, according to the court documents.
Wink’s boyfriend was at one of her properties nearby and heard the gunshots, according to court documents obtained by The Hour. He told police she was “afraid” of Lametta, and that she shot him because he “got in her face or something.”
A friend of Lametta’s, Joey DiMeglio, told News12 he believed the dispute was over an eviction. “He wasn’t leaving, she wanted him out of there and this is the end result," he said. (The police report says Wink was attempting to sell the building.)
Wink was previously arrested for locking Lametta out of the house, and allegedly told police that she had also stolen his belongings and taken them to the dump. She has been charged with murder and is being held on a $1 million bond. Wink’s attorney did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.
In addition to serving as an election administrator, Wink previously served as the city clerk and also mounted a bid for state representative, according to the Hartford Current. She owns five properties in town, according to local news station News12.
Wink has posted multiple pro-police messages on Facebook in the past, including one she shared just one day before the shooting, which reads: “The current cry is hold police accountable. I truly believe police would do a far better job if COURTS would hold CRIMINALS accountable.”
S-E-X w/ her: “He’s been my tenant and [expletive] driving me nuts,” & "she shot him because he 'got in her face or something.'” Well then. As long as it's not committed by a policeman or an aristocrat, right?

Forgot The Clash covered the titular track.In saying that both Republicans and Democrats are “playing to their political base,” Rohde makes no distinction between the former, who are spreading outright lies in the interest of electoral subversion, and the latter, who are calling that effort out and the risks it poses for our democracy. (He literally uses the words “both sides.”)
It’s as if a group of armed robbers burst into a bank and took hostages, and when a SWAT team assaulted the building and arrested them, the headline read, “Cops and Robbers Both Break Into Bank, Take Prisoners.”

Here's a fucking clue, dimbulb: The "bubbled" libs who were confident Warren would be the nominee did not turn into a mob of feces-slinging howler monkeys claiming the primaries were rigged, nor did they storm the Democratic Convention in tactical gear & other colorful costumes, armed w/ bear spray & Warren flags.Many American liberals live in political bubbles. Some people in overwhelmingly blue parts of the country, for example, were shocked to find that Trump got so many votes in 2016. (“I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for [Richard] Nixon,” the film critic Pauline Kael famously said of the former president, acknowledging her own political bubble just weeks after Nixon smashed George McGovern in 1972.) Some of those same blue-area Democrats were just as confident that Senator Elizabeth Warren would be the party nominee. But Republicans also live in bubbles.

Also spotted at Hullabaloo. And we can look at the Congressional vote.The 52 senators who voted to protect the filibuster and prevent voting rights reform represent 34,000,000 fewer Americans than do the 48 senators who voted for reform. It’s not just the filibuster that’s minoritarian. It’s the Senate as such. And as America’s rural regions grow ever more empty, it’s only going to get more so.
Gee-ziz, you fools are all whining like your brat children. Put it back in your pants & keep it there, you're killing the planet.

That’s not even including hot takes by the Smartest Boys and Girls on Substack asking why we’re fighting Hitler in the first place, and GOP lawmakers demanding we support the Nazis, but that’s another post for another time.
Not to worry 'though.
Perfectly acceptable as long as there's human involvement, then? No wonder "international law" is a sad fucking joke. How many divisions does the Secretary General have, exactly? And how willing would s/he be to use them? Your future➡.The continued construction and deployment of killer robots is not inevitable. Indeed, a majority of the world would like to see them prohibited, including U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres. Let’s give him the : “Machines with the power and discretion to take human lives without human involvement are politically unacceptable, morally repugnant, and should be prohibited by international law.”

Patrick Iber / New Republic:The Marine Who Turned Against U.S. Empire — There are some figures whose place in the story of the American past is so central that schoolchildren cannot help but know them: George Washington, or Abraham Lincoln, or Rosa Parks. But there is also a group of people who have not passed into national legend, and perhaps whose lives are not considered fit to explain to children. They are most likely to be encountered, if they are encountered at all, in the institutions that often engage the attention of young people between the ages of 18 and 22. Among those, there is probably only a single person who will be discovered almost exclusively by two generally nonoverlapping groups: avid readers of the corpus of Noam Chomsky, and members of the Marine Corps. That man, standing lonely astride the lens-shaped center of a peculiar Venn diagram, has the unlikely name of Smedley Darlington Butler.

Didn't call for the guy's head, didn't call him anything worse than a putz; only thing I can imagine that might offend some effing robot (unless someone was p.o.'d & decided to flag it) was a satirical use of the triple parentheses around the phrase "commercial casting agencies in Hollywood".
