    The amount of political correctness is...

    One would have thought that TD would have taken a more down to earth perspective. So, someone made an app to make one look like a stereotype from another race? Who cares. If you don't like it, then don't use it.

    History

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daily_Mail#Inter-war_period

    "Lord Rothermere was a friend of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, and directed the Mail's editorial stance towards them in the 1930s.[30][31] Rothermere's 1933 leader "Youth Triumphant" praised the new Nazi regime's accomplishments, and was subsequently used as propaganda by them.[32] In it, Rothermere predicted that "The minor misdeeds of individual Nazis would be submerged by the immense benefits the new regime is already bestowing upon Germany". Journalist John Simpson, in a book on journalism, suggested that Rothermere was referring to the violence against Jews and Communists rather than the detention of political prisoners.[33]

    Rothermere and the Mail were also editorially sympathetic to Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists.[34] Rothermere wrote an article entitled "Hurrah for the Blackshirts" in January 1934, praising Mosley for his "sound, commonsense, Conservative doctrine".[35] This support ended after violence at a BUF rally in Kensington Olympia later that year.[36]"

    Male shoppers

    Presumably a lot of shoppers of VS products are males, and I imagine that being associated with feminism puts off male customers. I certainly try to avoid in any way supporting neofeminists. For one thing, I don't buy Carlsberg beers, since they women's quotas for the BoD.

    Fuck the police

    There already are websites for collecting stories about incompetent policemen. I think Maggie mentions them once in a while (https://maggiemcneill.wordpress.com/), altho I can't seem to recall the name of the site right now.

    It is not too surprising that fuckups happen often in the US. Why? Because of the IQ cap on policemen. Yes, they have a cap. (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gnxp/2012/01/too-smart-to-be-a-good-cop/#.UNPHHYaGdcM)
