Deranged Leftist Woman Issues Legal Threats Toward Congressman Steve King for Using a Meme

This woman claims she owns a meme.



A deranged leftist woman has sent a cease-and-desist threat to Rep. Steve King (R-IA) claiming she owns a popular meme that he used in a fundraising request.

Laney Griner, whose son has been used in a fist-bumping meme that has become popular over the last decade, is using lawfare in an attempt to malign Rep. King, whose pro-Western beliefs have made him into a pariah to the liberal media.

“I recently learned that Iowa Representative Steve King is using my copyrighted photograph of my minor son Samuel known as ‘Success Kid’ to raise money in a ‘Fund our Memes’ online campaign, also implying that he has some kind of ownership in it,” Griner wrote in a Tweet.

“Representative King and his campaign staff appropriated ‘Success Kid’ without my permission. ‘Success Kid’s’ is about positivity and celebrates achievement. Neither I, my son, nor ‘Success Kid’ have any affiliation with Representative King,” she added. “Representative King should remove ‘Success Kid’ from his webpages immediately, issue a statement to acknowledge that the image was taken without our permission and endorsement, and refund the money his campaign received from misusing ‘Success Kid’.”

Griner is part of a growing movement of money-grubbing hucksters who claim ownership over a meme and then punish and extract money from people who use it.

This was previously done with Pepe the Frog in order to stop the viral spread of the popular right-wing meme by forcing high-profile people who shared it to pay cash settlements:

The creator of Pepe the Frog, the cartoon character co-opted by the alt-right for Nazi and pro-Trump memes, has sued the the right-wing conspiracy theory site InfoWars for copyright infringement.

In a lawsuit filed in California federal court, Pepe’s creator, Matt Furie, alleges that InfoWars unlawfully used the character in a poster that features the frog, InfoWars host Alex Jones, former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, Donald Trump, the slogan “MAGA,” Kellyanne Conway, Roger Stone, and others. Furie alleges that the poster promotes “a message of hate.”

Furie is seeking unspecified damages, attorneys’ fees, and a permanent injunction against InfoWars to prevent the site from ever using Pepe again. Furie’s attorney, Louis Tompros, said InfoWars has not yet formally been served with the lawsuit, but that he had sent the site a copy…

Furie’s attorneys sent cease-and-desist letters to some of the most prominent players in the alt-right and pro-Trump sphere in September. Tompros called the letters “very successful” and said that all but one of the recipients had complied.

“Our goal is to make sure no one feels like they can associate Pepe with images of hate and think they’ll profit from that,” Tompros said. “That’s what we’re trying to stop. Ideally, it would stop right away.”

The meme police are out to destroy the 1st Amendment and digital freedom of expression through lawfare, and Rep. King is the latest victim of this sinister leftist conspiracy.

Dana White Vows No Censorship in UFC After Media Campaign Against Pro-Trump Fighter Colby Covington

White is standing for free speech.



UFC promoter Dana White is standing strong for free speech, vowing never to “muzzle anybody” after pro-Trump fighter Colby Covington was targeted by a media campaign for making controversial statements following a huge victory last week.

“These guys all have their own causes, things, their own beliefs. We don’t muzzle anybody here,” White said. “We let everybody speak their mind.”

Covington made some candid comments following his defeat of Tyron Woodley at UFC on ESPN+ 36 in which he dominated the former champion who had professed his support for Black Lives Matter. He took the opportunity to gloat following his big victory.

“He’s standing up for lifelong criminals,” Covington said regarding his opponent Woodley. “The Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It’s a joke. They’re taking these people that are complete terrorists. They’re taking these people that that are criminals.”

“He’s a communist,” he added. “He’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”

Covington also garnered controversy for making remarks about Nigerian-born UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Covington referenced his “little tribe” and “smoke signals” while calling Usman out. The fake news media brought up the issue to UFC fighters, who expressed their dismay, in order to push their latest phony race controversy.

“Let’s be real, first and foremost,” bantamweight Sijara Eubanks said. “It wasn’t ‘unfortunate.’ It was flat-out racist. It was racist. It was disgusting. It was quite frankly disappointing.”

“This guy has directly insulted my culture, my brother and many other cultures, and no one says anything,” Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said. “But it just shows you a mirror. Shows you a mirror to you guys.”

“Reebok is the uniform provider for the UFC, however we do not sponsor Colby Covington. We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter. We stand with athletes and communities who are fighting for change,” the corporation that sells shoes made by third-world workers wrote in an official statement.

Not only is White refusing to take disciplinary action against Covington, he is also claiming that Covington’s comments are not even racist and no big deal.

“I don’t know what he said that was racist. I don’t know if I heard anything racist that he said,” White added.

Big League Politics has reported on how White has stood up for pro-freedom causes in the past, such as when he fought tooth and nail against senseless COVID-19 lockdown restrictions preventing him from doing events:

UFC promoter Dana White has refused to succumb to coronavirus hysteria and remains steadfast in his resolve to hold fights even while panic grips the world.

White announced on Monday that his next pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, April 18 with a new main event in a currently undisclosed location.

White has even said that he intends to hold UFC fights on a weekly basis at a private island, refusing to slowdown even as the global economy shutters due to coronavirus mania. He opened up during an interview with TMZ Sports on Monday.

He told TMZ that the next UFC event will take place in the United States, and he intends to use that venue to host fights for two months. However, White claims he is only “a day or two away” from sealing a deal that would allow him to hold fights in a private island venue, and this would potentially give him a reprieve from all the coronavirus-related hassles that he has dealt with over the past month trying to book fights.

“I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now so I’m going to start doing the international fights too with international fighters,” White explained. “Because I won’t be able to get international fighters – all of them into the U.S. – so I have a private island. I am going to start flying them into the private island and doing international fights from there.”

“So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running,” White declared.

White has claimed that the fake news media is doing everything in their power to sabotage his efforts, as they want the public to suffer during the worldwide coronavirus lockdown as much as possible.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

White might be wise to consider a career in politics after he retires as UFC promoter.
