6:39 Over the past few months allegations of anti-Semitism, Muslim Brotherhood fraternization, and infighting have plagued the organizers of Women's March Inc, the DC-based "Original" Women's March Group. Vice News embeds with local NYC Women's March organizer and founder Katherine Siemionko as she prepares for and attends the city's third annual local march while trying to separate herself from the optics of DC's infighting and toxic influence.

Love Scooter and his podcast!

The ship was sinking---and sinking fast. The captain told the passengers and crew, "We've got to get the lifeboats in the water right away." 

But the crew said, "First we have to end capitalist oppression of the working class. Then we'll take care of the lifeboats." 

Then the women said, "First we want equal pay for equal work. The lifeboats can wait." 

The racial minorities said, "First we need to end racial discrimination. Then seating in the lifeboats will be allotted fairly." 

The captain said, "These are all important issues, but they won't matter a damn if we don't survive. We've got to lower the lifeboats right away!" 

But the religionists said, "First we need to bring prayer back into the classroom. This is more important than lifeboats." 

Then the pro-life contingent said, "First we must outlaw abortion. Fetuses have just as much right to be in those lifeboats as anyone else." 

The right-to-choose contingent said, "First acknowledge our right to abortion, then we'll help with the lifeboats." 

The socialists said, "First we must redistribute the wealth. Once that's done everyone will work equally hard at lowering the lifeboats." 

The animal-rights activists said, "First we must end the use of animals in medical experiments. We can't let this be subordinated to lowering the lifeboats." 

Finally the ship sank, and because none of the lifeboats had been lowered, everyone drowned. 

The last thought of more than one of them was, "I never dreamed that solving humanity's problems would take so long---or that the ship would sink so SUDDENLY.

The super bowl will gladly whole heartedly endorse alcohol as long as there is a sligh emphasise it being enjoyed responsibly (quietly at the end of the commercial I might add) but Marijuana.... Oh no our standards won't allow us to show a positive commercial regarding Marijuana... what total and complete hosrse shit I mean talk about hypocrisy.

There are no "progressives" only "regressives". Democrats have become marxists. The Democrat party has always been the racist party, enslaving african-americans; one way or another.

Vice actively seeks to promote marxism and decadence.

The group that endorsed Farrakhan should just fold. What's the discussion? One group endorsed somebody that is a racist. Over and done with nice knowing you see you later buy buy racists.

The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Master Of Sleep & Flavored Juul 1 day ago   14:38

Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse.

Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either.

“All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water.

As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy.

VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.
