Stacey Dash: Rape Victims Are “Bad Girls … Who Like To Be Naughty”

Totally Clueless

Stacey Dash was once known for being Dionne in “Clueless.” Now she’s just known for being clueless in real life. The former actress, in her new role on Fox’s “Outnumbered,” had some interesting things to say about two recent stories regarding campus crackdowns meant to prevent sexual assault–national sorority chapters telling sorority members at the University of Virginia campus to not go to frat parties this weekend, as it’s a big party weekend, and also Dartmouth College banning hard liquor on campus.

“I think the girls — it’s a good thing — for the good girls to be told to stay home, be safe. The other bad girls – bad women – are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt and then, you know … but the other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who over-drinks. So it’s like, the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk; you get yourself drunk.”

All Charges Dropped Against White Cop Who Shot A Black 7-Year-Old In Her Sleep

Aiyana Stanley-Jones

Detroit police officer Joseph Weekley, who shot 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones in her sleep during a raid on her home in 2010, will not face any charges surrounding her death. Weekley was initially charged with involuntary manslaughter (a felony) and careless discharge of a firearm causing death  (a misdemeanor) in connection to Aiyana’s death in 2011, and his first trial in 2013 resulted in a hung jury. A retrial began in September 2014, and Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway, who presided over the case, eventually dropped the involuntary manslaughter charge, citing a lack of evidence. The incident ultimately ended with  another hung jury. This morning, the case was officially dismissed in Detroit’s Wayne County Circuit Court. Weekley will not face a third trial, and Aiyana’s family will likely never find closure or justice for their loss.

Sarah Palin Is Now A Co-Chair Of The Ready For Hillary PAC

Last weekend, Her Royal Mooseness Sarah Palin blessed us all with what will surely go down in history as the greatest drunk maid-of-honor speech in all of history. At one point during said speech, she ripped a “Ready For Hillary” magnet out of her bra and flailed it around while yelling  “I’m ready for Hillary, are you? Are you coming? Hey Iowa, can anyone stop Hillary? To borrow a phrase, ‘Yes we can!’ And it starts here and it starts now.” Then, I think, she vomited in a houseplant.

However, the Ready For Hillary PAC was on hand to capture the moment, and tweeted out a picture of Palin holding the magnet, along with a link encouraging followers to donate $20.16 in order to get a magnet just like the one she was holding. Keep reading »

Remember Christine Weick? The woman who delighted us all with her fascinating theories about supposedly “Satanic” symbols on Monster Energy drinks in a hilarious YouTube video that will never, ever get old for any reason?

She’s baaaaAAAAAAAaaaaaack.

This time, our beloved Christine stopped by Texas Muslim Capitol Day–a peaceful rally at the Texas Capitol building meant to promote inclusion and tolerance for those of the Muslim faith–rushed the stage, grabbed the microphone and started yelling.

“I proclaim the name of the lord Jesus Christ over the Capitol of Texas! I stand against Islam and the false prophet Mohammed! Islam will never dominate the United States and by the grace of God it will not dominate Texas!” Keep reading »

Woman Plummets To Death After Cliff-Side Sunset Proposal

Whoa, this is so sad: a Bulgarian woman is dead after falling off a cliff following her boyfriend’s surprise proposal in Ibiza. Dimitrina Dimitrova’s boyfriend led her to a romantic cliff-side proposal spot and as the sun set, he popped the question; Dimitrova was so excited that she literally jumped for joy — then fell 65 feet down the edge of said cliff, and later died of a heart attack. Awful way to go. [People] [Photo via Flickr user Xavi]
