smarmygryffindor:

so, in case you haven’t heard of Stormfront (here’s the tumblr post about it), I figured it was worth posting here so people can be aware of their actual tactics:

notice shit like “this isn’t about anti-whites, use them to humiliate them and make them look bad” and “winning isn’t important”. this is why i say not to argue with fascists, at least, not seriously. if you do, argue with them calmly at first and post sources and all that shit to prove that you’ve got facts and reasoning on your side for the sake of others who will read it, and under no circumstances let them piss you off or upset you. then, once you’ve made your point well enough, just start fucking with them back. don’t make the mistake of thinking arguing with fascists is a debate; it’s all for show, all about who can make the other one look worse. so it’s vital that you point out how fucking inane their talking points are, yes, but it’s also vital that you let them (and everyone else) know that you Are Not Taking Them Seriously. Because you shouldn’t, no one should. You don’t have to prove that human beings deserve rights and racism is wrong. As soon as you start to treat them as equals in debate on the topic of human rights, you inadvertently let them gain ground that should never be surrendered.

Guys, I don’t often ask this, but do me a favor and reblog this if you see it. Stormfront is a gigantic operation for the modern neo-nazi movement, and I don’t see nearly enough people even recognizing their existence.

Charities/organisations to avoid:

this-tragic-affair:

PETA: They’d rather spend their money on publicity campaigns than on the animals in their care. PETA killed 73.8% of the animals in their care in 2015 (x)

FCKH8: Is a for-profit company that exploits oppressed groups for money. They’re also wildly uninformed, and spread misogyny, cissexism and bi/panphobia, as well as stealing their posts/designs (x)

Autism Speaks: They spend most of their money on researching a way to eliminate autism, heighten the stigma against autism and don’t have a single autistic person on their board (x)

Please support other, better charities, and feel free to add any others you can think of to this.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure: CEO makes insane amounts of money, they deny a lot of requests for wigs/help with treatment/etc., and have attempted to sue other charities that use the color pink as part of their anti-breast cancer campaign. ( x x x )

The Salvation Army: They promote the hatred of LGBT+ people, work with fundamentalist Christian groups to support conservative politics and rip off and exploit workers. ( x x x )

Wounded Warrior: They take money that should be spent on veterans and blow it on huge opulent parties for the company bigwigs. 26 million in 2014 alone wasted! ( x x x )

^ Important reminder to NOT waste any money donating to these groups

Reblogging because of the added info about Wounded Warrior.

A good way to know if a nonprofit you’re donating to is allocating their money in the right way is to check out their Charity Navigator rating: http://www.charitynavigator.org

Charity Navigator bases its ratings in part on how much money goes to "administrative expenses" -- i.e. staff salaries, rent, utilities, etc. On the one hand, I get the desire to keep those costs low; you don't want to give to a charity that exists solely to line the pockets of its employees. On the other hand, people who do justice work should be able to get paid what they're worth, and work in safe buildings. This is particularly true of orgs being run by and for marginalized people.

The rubric Charity Navigator uses gives highest ratings (10 points) to charities with less than 15% of their total budget going towards salaries/rent/etc. Lowest ratings (zero points) go to charities with more than 30% of their total budget going towards salaries/rent/etc. Orgs that are locally/regionally focused, or whose missions aren't broadly popular, won't have access to the same big donors or grants, and will have a harder time keeping these percentages low while also paying employees appropriately. Orgs located in more expensive places (i.e. cities) will have a hard time finding suitable offices that are within their budget.

I'm not saying Charity Navigator is inherently bad; I'm saying their "objective" ratings aren't. Do your homework and think critically about the numbers when choosing which organizations get your money.

Trader Joe’s Hummus Recalled For Possible Listeria Contamination

1 Share

After the recall of a wide array of Sabra hummus products and sandwiches and veggie platters that used that hummus, another brand of the tasty chickpea dip has been recalled for possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. Two varieties of Trader Joe’s hummus distributed in eight states have been recalled because they may also be affected.

Did the hummus come from the same factory, or is there a contaminated ingredient that both companies have in common? Listeria bacteria was found in a sample of finished hummus, and products made on the same equipment have been recalled as a precaution. Is it related to the bigger Sabra recall? We don’t know yet, but what we do know is that you should check your fridge for these varieties:

Mediterannean White Bean and Basil

Mediterranean Hummus: Look for a “use by” date before Dec. 15.

White Bean & Basil Hummus: Look for a “use by” date before Dec. 15.

If you have any questions about the products, the recall, or the tubs of hummus in your own refrigerator, contact the supplier, Bakkavor Foods, at 855-312-7504.

Listeriosis is a potentially fatal foodborne illness: some healthy people might have no symptoms at all, but it can turn into life-threatening meningitis in children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems. Early symptoms to watch for are fever, gastrointestinal symptoms, and muscle aches.

It also poses a particular risk for pregnant women, since the bacteria can be passed to the fetus through their bloodstream, causing miscarriage or stillbirth. Symptoms of illness during pregnancy are subtle, and can include fever, fatigue, and muscle aches.
