Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is under fire after actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to have sex with him in a bed when Rapp was fourteen years old.
Spacey did not deny the allegations, instead issuing a statement that he does not remember the alleged drunken encounter and trying to garner sympathy for himself by coming out as gay.
Spacey’s “Coming Out” ruse was reported straight by outlets including ABC News, which ran the headline:

Breitbart’s Brandon Darby caught this travesty on Twitter, which was promptly re-tweeted by many others including Big League Politics.
The gay community piled on Spacey, accusing him of equating homosexuality with pedophilia. News outlets were raked over the coals for even thinking about reporting Spacey’s “coming out” party, well, straight.
ABC News changed its headline on the Karma Allen piece, which now reads, “Kevin Spacey apologizes, comes out as gay after allegation of sexual advance on 14-year old.”
But the Internet is forever.
Netflix is under Twitter pressure to fire Spacey from its Washington political melodrama “House of Cards,” on which he plays the President of the United States.
Here is Spacey’s full statement in his defense:

Spacey, like Harvey Weinstein before him, is quickly becoming a villain on the social-justice left, which does not bode well for his pastime as a high-profile Democratic booster and Bill and Hillary Clinton crony.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
