Vogue Photographs Kendall Jenner With an Afro Hairstyle, Immediately Issue Apology

More political correctness from the social justice crowd.

Published

on

Kendall Jenner, who’s true and only real claims to fame are modeling and being a member of the wacky Kardashian clan, continually seems to find herself under fire from social justice warriors for just about anything and everything she does, a phenomenon which is strange given the fact that she’s a pretty liberal individual.

The latest wave of outrage to be brought to her front door involves some photographs taken by Vogue magazine that feature the reality star rocking an afro-style, which, as you can probably imagine, had social justice warriors in an uproar, because, well, cultural appropriation and things like that.

The Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund shared several photos on Instagram showing Kendall Jenner in a hairstyle that ruffled the feathers of one too many commenters, who accused the fashion magazine of cultural appropriation, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Behold the monstrosity:

Fifteen years and 150 finalists later, the @CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize has created global stars, local heroes, a must-watch New York Fashion Week, and, most important, a true sense of community among designers of all ages and backgrounds—all with differing aesthetic and commercial aspirations—who communicate, collaborate, and essentially care for one another through the fun and not-so-fun times. Laura Vassar Brock—one of the founders of 2016 #CVFF winner Brock Collection—says, “We spoke to a few friends who had gone through it, and they all said the same thing: that the Fashion Fund is a life-changing experience. And indeed it was!” Tap the link in our bio to learn more. Photographed by @mikaeljansson, styled by @tonnegood, Vogue, November 2018

Here’s how the perpetually outraged on social media reacted to the photographs.

“FOR YEARS WE have been penalized about our looks and especially our hair, It is a slap in the face when non-Blacks try to imitate our look,” one Instagram user wrote.

“I like Kendall but why didn’t they use an ethnic model who has hair like that,” another wrote.

Other Instagram users were confounded about all the fuss over the photo.

One user emphatically protested: “Backlash for this photo?? Seriously?? That is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard!! So now someone has decided who can have a full curly look/ afro?? That is just BS!! Pick your battles people and get over it…seriously!!”

“I’m so sick and tired of people criticizing Kendall Jenner,” another said. “She could wear her hair straight and have a green bow and it would be offensive. I’m honestly ashamed to say this, but y’all need to step back and look in the mirror, who are you to come at her when your just a HUMAN LIKE HER. Y’all should be ashamed, LEAVE HER BE. (Also that’s not an Afro).”

As we’ve all come to expect, when these folks put just a tiny bit of pressure on Vogue, they caved and immediately issued an apology.

“The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras,” the Conde Nast publication said in a statement to E! News. “We apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”

As was stated earlier, Kendall Jenner is absolutely no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to being politically correct. Remember that huge fail she had with the “woke” Pepsi commercial?

No?

Here’s a reminder. Enjoy.

ALERT: Dem Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Joins House Panel Overseeing Financial Sector

UH OH!

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.

Scary enough, right?

It gets worse.

A self-described Democrat Socialist is set to join the committee.

From The Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is slated to join the committee leading the House’s oversight of U.S banks, lenders and financial markets.

Ocasio-Cortez has been recommended by Democratic leaders for a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a Democratic source told The Hill on Tuesday. The full roster of Democrats joining the committee is expected to be released as soon as Tuesday night.

The next two years are going to be a trip!

Check out this montage of everytime AOC “got it wrong”…

California Congresswoman Maxine Waters just doesn’t care anymore.

A lot of Democrats don’t, actually.

According to Waters in a not-so-subtle threat, it’s time to “get rid” of “despicable” President Trump.

We must understand that the Fed does not work for the president of the United States. The Fed creates monetary policy based on what’s good for the economy and, of course, I may disagree from time to time with their decisions but we must not interfere. They must be independent. Right now Powell is saying that they’re dealing with inflation, but they don’t work for the president. The president can’t fire them. All that the president can do when he opens his mouth is rattle the markets. As a matter of fact, the volatility that you see in the markets is caused by the kinds of statements that this president will make causing more uncertainty.

I’m not surprised that the president is doing this because I’m not surprised at anything that the president may do or say. I have warned America from the beginning that this president is not worthy, he cannot be trusted, he’s a liar, He’s despicable. Any time he steps in, opens his mouth, tries to interfere with one of our agencies I’m not shocked but the American people continue to be shocked. The Republicans are intimidated and not standing by their responsibility for oversight and dealing with this president. So, yes, no, Powell does not work for him. The attorney general should not work for him, but he thinks that they all should be working for him and not for the American people. We need to get rid of this president.

Ocasio-Cortez is everything that’s wrong with America.

She knows little of which she speaks.

Even worse, she has loyal followers who bend their ear to every word she says (or writes).

AOC is now comparing President Trump to a member of the Ku Klux Klan

This is called pandering.

AOC can do it with the best of them.

Shame.

There are some things a person just never expects to see.

One of those things would be far-left Whoopi Goldberg telling even further left Ocasio-Cortez to shut up for being such a loudmouth.

But it happened.

WATCH (start at 2:20)…

WOW.

It seems like the other ladies of “The View” agreed with Whoopi, which is even weirder.

Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill lost her race to Republican Josh Hawley.

She didn’t leave quietly, though.

McCaskill went after “what’s her name” Ocasio-Cortez like she got paid to do it.

It’s pretty brutal.

From Daily Wire:

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) warned against nominating “far-left” Democrats like socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week, saying that candidates like her “have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to” their political views.

McCaskill made the remarks while appearing on a Thursday podcast with The New York Times where she blamed her loss on “irritating” pro-abortion activists and also warned against nominating far-left Democrats.

McCaskill: “What’s her name, [the one] everybody’s fascinated with from New York? I hope she listens to people who defeated Republicans because it’s the people who defeated Republicans in this election that we need to be emulating. Not the people who defeated Democrats in primaries” in deep blue districts.

They’re so passionate about their beliefs they feel if everyone would just be more pure, more people would come to the cause, and many of them have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to that concept. And so, I just want to make sure that we don’t make a mistake and go so far to the left in nominating a candidate that we lose all those white working-class voters that have been a huge part of our party decades ago.

We have an opportunity in 2020 as long as we don’t go so far-left off the side of the earth that we alienate those people that, when they hear the word ‘free college,’ they hear that phrase, they think, ‘Oh, look, they’re giving away something to other people besides me again. I had to earn mine. Why aren’t they having to earn theirs?’ That thing is real. Sometimes, going too far, we turn off people and make election victories impossible.

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld has some thoughts on Alexandria:

This is what happens when you run on slogans and know nothing about actual policy or how things work.

Check out AOC’s tweet on “death panels”…

Then see how quickly she gets destroyed…

At a press conference for Sunshine Movement, which is a far-left group, Alexandria compared her midterm election victory to the moon landing and the civil rights movement.

There are no words to explain this kind of ignorance.

From Daily Wire:

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rambled on Friday that her election victory was on par with the United States landing on the moon, something that she falsely thinks was a political victory for the Democrats over the Republicans.

AOC: “This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America.

Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.

AOC needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change:

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?

Ugh.

It’s going to be a long two years covering this one.

BOMBSHELL: Mexican President Took $100 Million Bribe From Drug Lord ‘El Chapo’

He asked for $250 MILLION!!

John Salvatore

Published

on

It’s not exactly a secret to claim that public officials in Mexico are corrupt.

To be fair, public officials in every country are corrupt.

And yet, Mexico stands on its own – along with pretty much the entire continent of Africa.

Case in point…

Mexican drug lord “El Chapo” reportedly paid $100 million to Mexico’s now-former president.

This was after Nieto asked for an initial $250 million!

Sinaloa drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2012, according to testimony given in a New York federal court on Tuesday.

The testimony was given by Colombian drug lord Alex Cifuentes Villa, who said that Peña Nieto first contacted Guzman “about the time he was elected president in late 2012, asking the drug lord for $250 million in exchange for calling off a nationwide manhunt for him,” The New York Times reported.

[…]

Cifuentes testified that Guzman paid off multiple Mexican officials and, on at least two occasions, “gave the Mexican military between $10 million and $12 million to launch operations to ‘either kill or capture’ associates of the Beltrán-Leyva brothers during his war with them.”

Senator Ted Cruz, who was recently elected to his second term in office, knows exactly how to pay for the border wall Democrats so desperately despise.

It won’t even cost the American people a single cent.

The bill is called Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, or EL CHAPO Act.

How could Democrats say no to this?

From Daily Caller:

The bill would designate any money and assets seized from notorious gangster Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and allocate them for the construction of the border wall. El Chapo was extradited to the U.S. in 2017 to face charges related to running one of the most notorious drug cartels in the world.

El Chapo was worth $14 billion at the time of his arrest.

President Trump is only asking for $5 billion.

WATCH:

Speaking of Mexico…

From Daily Wire:

The Mexican government announced they are investigating the leak of a video that showed an October 2018 ambush by a Mexican drug cartel on a truck that was transporting four police officers.

“The video depicts the ambush killing of four officers of the Secretariat of Security of the State of Mexico (SSEM),” Robert Arce of Breitbart’s Border and Cartel team reported. “They were traveling on a mountain road in the municipality of Almoloya de Alquisiras on October 28 of this year at the time of their deaths.”
