WATCH THIS: MAN SHUTS DOWN ANTISEMITIC WHITE POWER PREACHER

One of my friends in the Boston area took this video and gave me permission to post it. She writes: “ I stood there for twenty minutes, easily. Hitler Youth kept trying to preach about “the evils of the Jews” and the big guy barely let him get a word in edgewise. At one point, the big guy yelled, “I will be here ALL DAY” and the crowd cheered.”

I promise this will be the best thing you see today.

ETA 1: Just to clarify, I think when my friend wrote “Hitler Youth” she was using it as a pejorative nickname for the preacher (because he’s young, neatly dressed, and spouting anti-Jewish hate speech). I don’t think she meant he was actually affiliated with a new wave of the Hitler Youth as an organization—although he’s obviously a raging antisemite, so who the fuck knows.

ETA 2: It turns out that while my friend is a Boston-area resident, this video was taken during a visit to New York. My mistake—I just assumed the video was filmed in the area where she lived, but that was incorrect.

Ruth Negga Lands Female Lead In AMC Pilot ‘Preacher

“Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Ruth Negga has been cast as the female lead in Preacher, AMC’s drama pilot based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic. 

The project, from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, is about Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Negga) — Jesse’s former and only true love — and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to literally find God. ”

Admin notes: Jane Ruth Negga is in fact of Ethiopian-Irish descent.

COMICS YOU SHOULD READ BEFORE YOU DIE!
#2 of many

The biggest praise i can give this comic is.. you’ll not even be bothered that Steve Dillon is drawing it.

This was one of the first comics i read in the 90’s after a few years out of the comic reading game. Before this i’d basically just read a lot of 2000ad/Judge Dredd.
I was in love after #1.

PLOT: “The series, based off an idea Ennis had while working on Hellblazer, tells the story of Jesse Custer, a down and out cursed/blessed southern boy preacher, a hard livin’ Irish vampire (Cassidy) and the preacher’s gunslinging ex-girlfriend (Tulip) travel and fight the world to question The All-Mighty Himself, as to why he quit his sacred task of caring for the world.”

It’s got everything.. demons, angels, god, the devil, the angel of death, a kid with a face that looks like an arse, vampires, meat lovers, sadomasochists, perverts, sheep, racists, cops, murderers, hillbillies, the ghost of john wayne.. and more.. lots lots more.

It’s gonna be made into a tv show. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are writing the pilot and it’ll be on AMC. (James Franco as Jesse Custer maybe?)

News: Joe Gilgun cast as Cassidy in AMC’s Preacher: Now this is some damn fine casting. Joe Gilgun, best known for his roles in Misfits and This Is England (along with its TV mini-series sequels), has landed the key role of Cassidy in Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg’s AMC adaptation of Preacher. Perhaps one of the most iconic characters in non-superhero comic books, Cassidy is a hell-raising, hyper-opinionated Irish vampire, dead for over a century. He joins the titular preacher Jesse Custer (rumours abound that Dominic Cooper is set for the role) and his girlfriend Tulip (the recently cast Ruth Negga) as they travel across the American south in search of the literal God. Outside of the likes of Colin Farrell or an actual undead Irishman, Gilgun is a very good, and slightly unexpected choice for the role, but an encouraging sign that Rogen & Goldberg, and showrunner Sam Catlin, know what they’re doing.

Christian preacher, Tony Miano, declares to the world that he is a heartless asshole!

This is sadly no sick joke. This is a serious statement by Tony Miano, a Christian preacher, in response to the devastating Nepal earthquake that has killed nearly 2,000 people so far. I have a great deal of respect for people’s beliefs and I am a strong proponent of religious freedom, but people like this man are disgusting! You can follow the tweet and read/respond to the thread that follows, as he goes on to further justify his vile statement: https://twitter.com/TonyMiano/status/591971536870871041

Until the end of the world.”

Just some of the production pictures Seth Rogen has shared on social media since he began work on his adaption of PREACHER by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon for AMC. I am eagerly awaiting some official set and cast photos and I presume we’ll get a full trailer around the time AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead  airs this summer.
