It’s flashed by Trump supporters and mass killers:
Has the OK sign really mutated into a white-power symbol?

Oregonian, by Douglas Perry

“Owning the libs” has never been so easy: Just raise your hand and flash the OK sign. “The smirk that almost inevitably accompanies the ‘OK’ sign, that simplest of hand signals, is the dead giveaway in the shroud of internet-age befuddlement,” the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote last September. “Does the sign, the thumb and forefinger joined together in a circle, the remaining three fingers splayed out behind, mean ‘all’s good?’ Or does it mean ‘white power’ instead?”

And this is what passes for political commentary in Portlandia these days

Have black masks antifa and BLM mutated into Marxist violence?

We can play that insipid game.

In Brazil it is a vulgar finger gesture which means a-hole.

The writer is citing the "Southern Poverty Law Center" as if they are a credible organization. He should really stay abreast of current events, before he writes an op-ed.

I generally use the “thumbs-up” gesture but will now make a point of using the OK gesture. Hope that millions of others do the same.

In the NBA the players like Steph Curry flash that sign to celebrate a made 3-point shot. Are they all white supremacists also?

Wow, just last week I had a student in the library. And when he asked me if the book he was wanting was on the shelf I flashed him the OK sign. OMG, I´m white and the student was black. What have I done? He will probably be triggered for the rest of his life and I will be on the news and I will get fired and he will sue me for mental anguish and I will end up committing suicide because of what I did and it just goes on and on. This is stupid. So much stupidity out there. Life is hard. It´s harder if you are stupid. So many stupid people walking around.

A Brit friend (now gone) who piloted two gliders to mostly safe landings in WW II told me that he had been stationed for a while at a base in England where teen-age Brits were learning to fly fighters. He said that on their takeoff runs, these inexperienced kids were required to flash a two-thumbs-up signal. (He said that was to assure those on the ground that the young pilot didn´t have one thumb up.......)

I had figured the left´s insane drive to upset the world would know few bounds. Now it seems they have gone into the start of insane overdrive. They intend to invade every crevice of American life and those similar. It hurts my head thinking about what they see in their selfish world. Like the Andromeda Strain, they are morphing and mutating at an alarming rate and I wonder which will transpire first. President Trump moves on to post presidency or the left´s collective head explodes into tiny fragments.

Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox has spun off various television assets — including the Fox News Channel and Fox broadcast network — to form a new company that will be known simply as Fox Corp. The spinoff completed early Tuesday is part of a multi-pronged process that will culminate with the $71.3-billion sale of the rest of Murdoch’s entertainment company to Walt Disney Co. The company announced that it had finished the process of issuing shares in the new Fox Corp. to investors of 21st Century Fox.

Freshman Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Tuesday evening said he cannot understand why President Donald Trump would “disparage” the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), whom Romney described as “heroic,” “courageous,” “patriotic,” and “honorable.” “I can’t understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God,” Romney tweeted.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling on all advertisers to drop Fox News until the network fires hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson due to comments by both hosts that the civil rights group called “Islamophobic.” “Fox News must clearly state that Jeanine Pirro will not be allowed back on the air after her long history of Islamophobic hate rhetoric and the network must also take similar action against other Islamophobic hosts like Tucker Carlson,” CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement. “All existing advertisers should drop their ads on Fox News to ensure that

I am excited by the opportunity to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history. More importantly, I’m eager to learn from the experience. The 2020 presidential election is a consequential moment in American democracy. Everything we believe in as Americans will be examined and, in essence, ratified by our votes. But it concerns me, as it does the majority of good Americans, that our national debate has become hostile and disrespectful. We no longer simply agree to disagree. Too often we demonize the intentions

ATLANTA — A two-line proposed bill would require men to report "certain events" of a sexual nature to law enforcement. HB 604 would amend Chapter 1 of Title 35 of the Official Code of Georgia so that "any male 55 years of age or older shall immediately report to the county sheriff or local law enforcement agency when such male releases sperm from his testicles."

McCain said, “I think if I had told my dad seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter, he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well. Do not feel bad for me and my family. We are blessed.” “We are a family of privilege,” she continued. “Feel bad for people out there who are

A new report on 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s marriage to real estate heiress Amy Sanders O’Rourke reveals the former Texas congressman indulged in some bizarre cuisine following his failed U.S. Senate bid in Texas. O’Rourke, who in January launched a five-state road trip across the Southwest, found himself eating dirt told to possess “regenerative powers” during one stop in New Mexico, according to the Washington Post. The newspaper said he also brought some of the dirt back home to Texas for the family to eat, as well. The strange antidote is one of several unflattering details to have

She did this after she was asked by moderator Jake Tapper what role faith plays in her life.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said she believes it is time for Mississippi to disavow its Confederate icons — namely on its state flag. "I would support removing Confederate celebrations from federal lands and putting them in museums where they belong," Warren said at a CNN townhall in Jackson, Mississippi, on Monday evening. Asked if she believes the state should adopt a new flag, Warren had a short answer. "Yes," she said to an applauding crowd. Mississippi´s flag, which features a confederate battle emblem, has been a source of controversy. The flag from 1894 has been accused of
