As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Wire:
An intersectionality fight broke out on Thursday night when vocal Trump-hating actress Bette Midler lost her mind over the likely confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, posting that women are the “n-words of the world.”
“Women, are the n-word of the world,” wrote Midler in a now-deleted tweet. “Raped, beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years[.] They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.”
When doubling-down on the sentiment of the tweet, Midler claimed she was quoting Yoko Ono.
“I gather I have offended many by my last tweet. ‘Women are the…etc’ is a quote from Yoko Ono from 1972, which I never forgot,” she wrote in another now-deleted tweet. “It rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not. This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.”
Midler was swarmed with criticism until she eventually tapped out in submission and offered an apology. Here are some of those angry messages directed at the lefty actress (h/t Huffington Post):

BLACK WOMEN EXIST BETTE

This is why we can't have nice things. Black women were literally and LEGALLY property. Fact: Many white women owned/abused slaves right along with their husbands. Ever seen a lynching picture? Guess what you don't see: White women crying. Respect American History. @BetteMidler pic.twitter.com/AixOFYXYu8

Please don’t appropriate the racism Black people experience.
Sexism is bad enough as it is.
Racism is a different bad thing.
Some people experience both.
And this is a very bad tweet.

@BetteMidler I see you have decided to double-down on this insensitive, ridiculous madness. Your arrogance and deliberate disregard for the experiences of Black women and by extension The Black community as a whole is breath-taking. Your privilege is showing! https://t.co/yUNGB69WUx

The apology came later that night, and a declaration of allyship was naturally included.
“The too brief investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh infuriated me. Angrily I tweeted [without] thinking my choice of words would be enraging to black women who doubly suffer, both by being women and by being black,” Midler said. “I am an ally and stand with you; always have. And I apologize.”

Kavanugh will likely be confirmed on Saturday, but hopefully we get a few more intersectionality fights before the bell rings.
Huffington Post has more on this
Actress and singer Bette Midler is acting a little scary, and it’s not because of the “Hocus Pocus” reruns.
The 72-year-old star on Thursday shared an awful take on feminism with an equally awful song title.
“Women, are the n-word of the world,” Midler tweeted. “Raped beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals … They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.”
She defended her problematic message two more times before deleting the tweet altogether and apologizing a few hours later.
The tone-deaf tweets frightened her fans.
Midler was actually quoting the title of a 1972 song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which was just as problematic then as it is now.
Unamused, thousands of people replied to Midler pointing out what should’ve been obvious: It is not OK for her, a white woman (or any non-black woman, for that matter) to use that word.
People also stressed that the struggle of white women can’t be compared to the history of racism, violence and systematic oppression that black women have faced, which her tweet (perhaps unwittingly) erased.
After thousands tried to educate Midler, the actress doubled down on her use of the quote before deleting both tweets altogether.
She acknowledged in a follow-up tweet that her message “offended many” but defended it by noting that it was originally spoken by Yoko Ono, “which I never forgot.”
“It rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not,” she wrote. “This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.”
Midler’s defense of the quote inflamed people even more.
State Sen. Nina Turner (D-Ohio) told Midler that her white woman privilege was showing.
Rapper Talib Kweli Greene reminded her that “black women exist” and “are treated like niggers. You are not,” he tweeted to her. “Please stop erasing black women. Thank you.”
Then Midler appeared to push the issue even further by tweeting a link to a New Yorker article reporting that the FBI would be ignoring the testimony of the former classmates of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.
In an appeal to the people she offended, Midler blamed her random outburst on the FBI’s brief and limited investigation into the sexual assault claim made against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.
The actress said she shared her thoughts on women “angrily” and acknowledged that black women “doubly suffer, both by being women and being black.”
“I am an ally and stand with you; always have,” she wrote. “And I apologize.”

Alyssa Milano Struggles To Believe Jussie Smollett Would Commit MAGA Hate Hoax
Well…it seems whiny Celebrity Alyssa Milano is having a hard time believing that Jussie Smollett would actually fake a hate crime attack, wondering who “could be that hurtful.”
“If that man staged his own attack he is wrong in so many ways. No one could be that hurtful? To stage this? Right?” Alyssa Milano pleaded on Twitter.
“To fuck with all of us by playing into our weaknesses & make it even harder for victims to come forward?! No one could choose to be that hurtful? Right?! RIGHT?”

According to reports over the weekend, Chicago police now believe that Empire actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated an attack on himself by paying two men to beat him.
“Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The sources tell CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement,” tweeted CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz Saturday evening.
Earlier Saturday, Fox 32 Chicago’s Rafer Weigel, citing several police sources, reported Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo — the two Nigerian brothers arrested and later questioned by police about the alleged incident — purchased the rope found around the actor’s neck the night of the alleged attack at an ACE hardware store.
CBS Chicago’s Charlie De Mar reports at least one of the brothers bought the rope at Craft Beaver hardware store the weekend of January 25th. The rope was purchased at the direction of Smollett, De Mar, citing sources, added.
Hoaxster Smollett previously claimed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago in January. The “attackers” also allegedly shouted “This is MAGA country!” during the attack.
When the news originally broke of the alleged attack, many Hollywood celebrities used it to cast blame on President Trump and his supporters.
“Heartbroken and furious reading about the attack on JussieSmollett. I want Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell,” actor Billy Eichner said last month.

Faking a hate crime, faking a lynching, in order to frame a group of people you don’t agree with, should be charged as a hate crime! This is how mentally ill the left is. It’s time for lawsuits. Apologies don’t mean anything so we should stop asking for them. These mentally ill folks are hell-bent on destroying innocent lives.
I saw this meme someone had posted recently. Which explains this so well.
“Only in 2019, would a gay black actor, pay Nigerians $4k a piece, to buy a rope, throw it around his neck and beat him up in order to blame white folks. Happy Black History Month!”
Sure explains the mentally ill left well. How sick you have to be to pay people to beat you up so you can blame it on white people. Because you hate white people that bad..
Welcome to the racist left,folks!
Malia Obama’s Secret Facebook Account Reveals How Much She Hates Trump
Can you imagine being brought up with so much hate at such a young age?
Well..it seems Malia Obama’s secret Facebook page has reportedly been found, and it divulges her true feelings about President Donald Trump.
Malia Obama described President Trump as ‘evil’ on her secret Facebook page where she exchanges messages friends including Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Daily Mail revealed.
The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.
Its cover photograph is of a row of pink post-it notes which read: ‘Donald Trump is President,’ ‘This is not normal’, ‘Donald Trump is evil’ and ‘Don’t be complacent.’
Among the comments written beneath the photograph is one by Biden’s 20-year-old granddaughter Finnegan.
She said: ‘Never saw this. I like it.’
There were some other political activity on the page, including a petition demanding action after the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival left 58 people dead.
Malia is attending Harvard and had moved into freshman dorms in August 2017, a few months after she posted it on her profile.
She had been living in New York City in the months beforehand while interning at The Weinstein Company. Weinstein offered Malia an internship as a favor to her father, Barack Obama.
There are some other personal posts and pictures as well, showing the travels Malia took during the year before starting Harvard University.

Amazing how she calls President Trump “evil”….yet she was interning for Weinstein who has sexually abused many women in Hollywood. The left never ceases to amaze me. And nothing is scarier than when radical leftists have children. They raise them to be hateful human beings. These kids are subject to full-court-press Leftist propaganda 24/7.
Malia Obama is another example of a brainless liberal. Once you’ve declared someone “evil” there are no barriers for anything you do to them. No more analysis or intelligent evaluations to be made.
She has long since joined the ranks of “useless idiots.”
Funny… She doesn’t want to talk about her daddy who financed terror via Iran to the tune of $150 billion dollars.
She doesn’t know the definition of evil. The apple sure doesn’t fall very far from the tree.. this poor soul is just about as dumb as her racist father and mother.
