    holy fucking shit.
    Robert Bruce Spencer is an American anti-Muslim[1][2][3][4] author and blogger. Spencer describes himself as "the 'good' kind of Islamophobe".[5] His published books include two New York Times bestsellers.
    In 2003 he founded and has since directed a blog that tracks Islamic extremism known as Jihad Watch. He co-founded the anti-Muslim group Stop Islamization of America (American Freedom Defense Initiative) with blogger Pamela Geller.[6] Reports that two of Spencer's books were listed in FBI training materials and that he had given seminars to various law enforcement units in the United States stirred controversy.[1][7] He has frequently appeared on Fox News.[8] In 2013 the UK Home Office barred Spencer from travel to the UK for 3 to 5 years for "making statements that may foster hatred that might lead to inter-community violence"
    Anders Breivik, the Norwegian spree killer behind the 2011 Norway terrorist attacks which killed 77, cited Spencer 64 times in his manifesto and wrote of him, "About Islam I recommend essentially everything written by Robert Spencer."[18][27] Spencer condemned Breivik and said he was unfairly blamed by the media for the attack.[28][19]

    Scary dude! He also taught religion and music. I had him for music and he was just obnoxious in so many ways.

    We were just discussing him recently on FB and the girls that had him for religion (think he taught New Testament for freshmen along with someone else) don’t recall him being overtly Islamophobic or anti Semitic.

    Some recalled his discussion about a woman being “sticky” during sexual arousal. I’m kind of glad I had a nun who used props, as embarrassing as that may be to a 14-15 year old it certainly sounded better than “sticky lectures”.

    Lady Antebellum Sues the Singer Lady A Over Name Change

    The platinum-selling country group’s new name was already being used by a blues singer. Now they’re asking a court to affirm “a trademark we have held for many years.”

    By: Joe Cascarelli




    When the country trio Lady Antebellum announced last month that it would change its Civil War-referencing band name to Lady A out of respect for Black people, the group credited the widespread protests against police brutality for revealing “blind spots we didn’t even know existed.”


    Barely a day later, another blind spot made itself known: Anita White, a blues singer and Black woman, had been using the stage name Lady A for over 20 years. “This is my life,” she said.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/08/a...a-lawsuit.html


    If Lady A has been using that name for over 20 years and Lady Antebellum had that trademark since 2006, wouldn't Lady A be in the right here?

    Really, way to come off as entitled and thinking you're above others.

    Did their "closest black friends" advise them to sue someone who has (rightfully, because her name is Anita, not some madeup BS name) used the name Lady A for 20 years? "The Karen Band" would be the perfect name for them.
