This thing has gone viral and for good reason. When a race baiting, conspiracy theory pushing asshole like Alex Jones and his bullshit website #infowars tries to pose as "real news", they should get their ass kicked. The fact that a 12 year girl did it just makes it all that much better. #alexjones#fakenews This little pussy boy can't handle it. Notice the NAZI shirt and hat he's wearing?
According to the official White House statement, visitors from the UK and elsewhere can apply for places, saying: “If you wish to visit the White House and are a citizen of a foreign country, please contact your embassy in Washington, DC for assistance in submitting a tour request.” But the British Embassy in the US capital quickly repudiated the announcement, citing the State Department: “The White House website states that foreign nationals interested in touring the White House should contact their Embassy to arrange a tour. “However, the Embassy has been advised by the US Department of State that this is on hold. We are therefore unable to process any applications at this time.” It’s unclear whether or not this is some kind of petty revenge for the UK parliament’s decision to ban President Trump from an official state visit or perhaps a heightened security measure.

Hindsight is always 20/20. That's why judging the past by the yardsticks of the present is "pointless." History is always made in its context. Understanding history in its context can be used to "explain" why certain things happen. If those things are something we wouldn't consider to be desirable or good nowadays, we can always "prevent" them from happening again through understanding why they were accepted in the past. Slavery, for example, was the product of one group of people thinking another group was someone 'less human' than themselves. Spanking children wasn't considered abuse. Racial discrimination wasn't frowned upon. One would hope we now know differently though these attitudes still exist in tiny pockets of ignorance. To this day, polygamy is practiced by some religions (muslims and mormons), yet NOT every believer practices it. To each his own. If today we know better, we should do better. Are we doing better than our ancestors? That should be the POINT we should strive to achieve. Leave judgement to judgement day.

Tonislav Hristov's meditative film reveals the effects of Syrian migration on Greater Dervent, a tiny Bulgarian hamlet located on the Turkish border and made up of 38 elderly inhabitants. Ivan, the postman, decides to run for mayor on the platform of revitalizing the dying village by welcoming refugee settlers. As he delivers the mail—along with quiet and passionate stump speeches—Ivan must navigate the complicated and interlocking positions of fear, nationalism, and xenophobia in his quest to be elected and save his home.
