University Of Missouri's President Resigns After Football Team Strikes Over Disgusting Racial Incidents

This is a very strong message.

The University of Missouri's football team suspended all team activities — right in the middle of their season — and more than 30 players walked out on the team in an effort to boycott President Tim Wolfe.

Wolfe, and the University administration more broadly, have come under fire for slow reactions to several alleged acts of racism on campus, with concerned students feeling as though the president has little concern for the black students on campus.

Things came to a head last week, when graduate student Jonathan Butler started a hunger strike — that has now gone on for nearly seven full days — that Butler says will not stop until either he dies, or Wolfe is removed from his position.

Finally, after a week of tension on campus, news broke Monday morning that Wolfe finally resigned from his position as the president of the entire University of Missouri system!

This, according to a tweet from Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery:

Gloria Allred Is Going On A Hunger Strike


In an effort to show her support for all womankind, fame-whore attorney Gloria Allred has pledged to starve herself for the next 30 days. Her goal is to draw more attention to herself to the passing of the Equal Rights Amendment.

Gloria chose now to start her strike as it will then end on the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave woman the right to vote. Gloria said that her last nosh before the strike was wHORe d'oeuvres. (Anyone seen Rachel Uchitel today???)

We give it 3 days before her stomach starts growling and the media attention will no longer sustain her desire to load up on Oreos and the souls of deceitful sluts.

Cuban Leaders Accuse U.S.A. Of Blackmail, Oppressive Regime Feels The Heat!

Filed under: PolitikSad Sad


A group of protestors in the island have launched a hunger strike in opposition of Cuba's treatment of political prisoners, leading one to starve to death and another to be hospitalized.

Although it's gotten so bad that the USA and Europe have attempted to intervene and force President Raul Castro to release political prisoners, the island nation's leaders are not pleased and have accused the outside politicians of blackmail!

In a nationally televised speech, Castro asserted:

"We will never give in to blackmail, from any country or group of countries, no matter how powerful."

He continued on to claim the members of the hunger strike are criminals being paid by enemy governments in an attempt to destabilize their country.

We think anyone who would be willing to lose their life fighting for a cause would have to truly believe in it, which throws out the conspiracy theory excuse Cuba's political leaders are clinging to!

We sincerely hope this issue is resolved before any one else suffers another day.
