Milo Yiannopoulos raised $100,000 for a scholarship for white men — and no one’s seen a cent

In January, conservative blogger Milo Yiannopoulos launched the Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant, a scholarship for white men only. It was designed as a deliberate provocation to rile up liberals — but the money, at least, seemed to be headed toward college scholarships. The money was supposed to be doled out in “early summer 2016.” It’s currently sitting in his bank account — and he may have broken the law.

Saudi blogger sentenced to weekly floggings for "insulting Islam"

Just in case you thought US-ally Saudi Arabia was any less brutal than its radical neighbors. 

from BBC:

A Saudi Arabian blogger has been publicly flogged after being convicted of cybercrime and insulting Islam, reports say.

Raif Badawi, who was sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in jail, was flogged 50 times. The flogging will be carried out weekly, campaigners say.

Mr Badawi, the co-founder of a now banned website called the Liberal Saudi Network, was arrested in 2012.

Rights groups condemned his conviction and the US appealed for clemency.

On Thursday state department spokeswoman Jen Psaki urged the Saudi authorities to “cancel this brutal punishment” and to review his case.

In addition to his sentence, Mr Badawi was ordered to pay a fine of 1 million riyals ($266,000; £175,000).

In 2013 he was cleared of apostasy, which could have carried a death sentence.

Last year Mr Badawi’s lawyer was sentenced to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of a range of offences in an anti-terrorism court, the Associated Press news agency reported.
