Fox News host compares migrants entering US to Nazis

Todd Starnes of Fox Nation also called migrants a ‘rampaging horde of illegal aliens’ less than two weeks after El Paso attack

A Fox News host has said that the US has been invaded by a “rampaging horde of illegal aliens” less than two weeks after 22 people were killed in a Hispanic-targeting attack in El Paso, Texas.

The comments were first noted by media watchdog Media Matters’ Jason Campbell. They repeat a pattern of extreme rhetoric coming from the Rupert Murdoch-owned media property and come during a national debate over the role of racist language from politicians and media figures in spurring violence and prejudice against immigrants.

10 of the UK’s best open-top bus rides
Venturing further than city sightseeing tours, these affordable public buses take in seafronts, woods, ruined abbeys and Unesco sitesOperator: MorebusThe Purbeck Breezers have great year-round open-top routes. Breezer 50 came third last year in a UK poll of scenic bus routes (beaten only by routes through the North York Moors and Scottish Highlands). Usually, the 50’s USP is crossing over to sandy Studland Bay on the chain ferry but this summer the ferry is out of action so the bus has to go the long way round. It follows a similar route to the Breezer 40 – through the time-warp town of Wareham and past the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle.• Adult dayrider £9 (up to two under-7s free with a paying adult).Hourly all year, with seasonal variations Continue reading...

Knife crime: using the power of drill music to tackle gang culture
A seaside music project channels troubled youngsters’ energy away from crime and violence into ‘conscientious rapping’Like the rap duo Krept and Konan, Jinx Prowse, who runs the Music Fusion youth project in Hampshire, believes a police clampdown on drill music is not the answer to knife crime. “Gangs and their culture exist first. This then informs the music. Banning drill would be a naive and impotent response to addressing the real issues behind gang culture.”“We give young people somewhere to belong, respect, a platform to express themselves and a safe place to hang out. Their music can be the first step in moving away from crime.” Continue reading...

Crystal Rasmussen review – drag star with charisma by the bucketload
Underbelly Cowgate, EdinburghA Romanov raised by wolves meets a struggling Lancashire boy in a memoir dipped in glamour and pulsating to powerpopThere’s a well-travelled road from boy- or girlband glory to solo success. So why shouldn’t it be open to alumni of the drag queen quintet Denim? Crystal Rasmussen sings in that supergroup and now turns their memoir Diary of a Drag Queen into a fringe show. It charts the life stories of Crystal – a Romanov who fled the Bolsheviks to be raised by wolves – and their alter ego Tom, a gender nonconforming boy in Lancashire, struggling to live a life without shame. They meet; they help one another; they become one – with costume changes and powerpop cover versions en route.The twin-track narrative is a nice conceit, and it’s thrilling when they come together – by which stage, Crystal is married to seventh husband Mr Blobby and Tom is listening to Madonna on the school bus while being pelted with oranges. (The homophobia they experience gets worse, and is shocking.) Then the distinction between the two personae blurs, as Rasmussen reads from chapters of his memoir representing their various stations of their cross. Kate Bush, Madge herself and Minnie Riperton – if not quite with her signature top note – help the story along its way. Continue reading...

'I'm all feathered out' – why mas is the heart of Notting Hill carnival
With its dancers, devils and elaborate handmade costumes, mas – short for masquerade – is carnival’s oldest tradition. We meet the women keeping it aliveIn a workroom in the Yaa Centre in west London, surrounded by bolts of fabric and sewing machines, Allyson Williams is reminiscing about her first mas camp. For the uninitiated, mas camps are where carnival bands gather to make their costumes by hand. Now 72, the former midwife – she was awarded an MBE for her services in 2002 – smiles broadly at the memory. “It was wonderful. I thought, oh my God! This is like home.”For the Williamses, mas is a family business. It started with Allyson’s husband, Vernon, who came to London in 1956. As a Trinidadian, like Allyson, carnival was in his blood. After meeting his wife-to-be in 1975, Vernon wasted no time in introducing her to Notting Hill Carnival, which he had co-founded in 1966. Continue reading...

Just as in 1914, the Brexit buildup is making calamity feel inevitable | Rafael Behr
The Damascene moment remainers hoped for shows no sign of coming, and disaster feels all too predictableThe historian AJP Taylor argued that Europe was plunged into the first world war by the inexorable operation of train timetables. He was not ignoring historic rivalries between the continent’s great powers, nor truncating the sequence of diplomatic failures that turned competition into military confrontation. But at a critical moment, carefully laid mobilisation plans could not be deactivated. Escalation to calamity proceeded metaphorically and literally on rails.Even with a century of hindsight it is impossible to discern a point of no return in the runup to the first world war Continue reading...

The age of comfort TV: why people are secretly watching Friends and The Office on a loop
We are in an era of ‘prestige television’, with unprecedented choice and quality. So why are so many of us streaming endless reruns of 90s sitcoms?In the opening episode of Netflix’s animated Hollywood satire BoJack Horseman, the eponymous steed gives a drunken speech about Horsin’ Around, the (fictional) feelgood sitcom that made him a star in the 90s. “For a lot of people, life is just one long, hard kick in the urethra,” he says. “And sometimes, when you get home from a long day of getting kicked in the urethra, you just want to watch a show about good, likable people who love each other – where no matter what happens, at the end of 30 minutes, everything’s gonna turn out OK.”BoJack Horseman is a rare thing on Netflix in that it is a) original, b) critically adored and c) extremely popular. It is the 15th-most-viewed Netflix show in the US, according to the analytics firm Jumpshot (one of the best guides to what is popular on the platform, as Netflix doesn’t release stats).

Shock! Horror! Do you know how much time you spend on your phone?
Writer Adrienne Matei spends two hours and 20 minutes a day on her phone – which might seem fine, until you realize it amounts to 35 full days a year. What’s your number?How much time do you spend on your phone? Share your screen time with us here Before beginning to write this article, I spent 20 minutes doing, if I’m honest, sort of nothing on my phone. Prior to that, I checked emails, read the news and browsed social media in bed. My phone is usually within arm’s reach, which seems to me fairly typical of everyone, old and young, who includes a phone in their essential trifecta of belongings, alongside their keys and wallet. I spend an average of two hours and 20 minutes a day on my phone, according to my iPhone’s Screen Time function. As someone who writes about internet ephemera for a living, I feel justified in my habit of filter-feeding through social media like a megamouth shark. Yet it’s somewhat more difficult to be nonchalant when I realize my daily habits amount to me spending 35 days a year, or over five (five!) years of my remaining life, on my phone.

Ignore the sneering: young people’s rage is an age-old sign of failed politics | Fiona Sturges
Like the rockers and ravers before them, this generation treats the choices of their elders with alarmIn the documentary Everybody in the Place, the Turner prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller delivers a talk to a group of sixth-form politics students about late-80s acid house in Britain. As well as documenting the massive cultural changes that took place, he draws a clear line between the decline of industrialisation, the miners’ strike, sound-system culture and the rise of dance music. As Deller shows old footage of whey-faced ravers in bucket hats and sports gear dancing in fields and warehouses, the students look on with a blend of bafflement and fascination. It’s weird, one of them says, that no one has a phone.Another film, also out now, reports on a youth movement born from political and social disenfranchisement, and a desire for a new way of living. Woodstock – Three Days that Defined a Generation tells the well-documented story of the hippy era and the 1969 music festival that took place in the shadow of Vietnam and civil rights unrest. “We were looking for answers,” says one attendee. “We were looking for other people that felt the same way as we did … If 400,000 people could get together and have absolutely no violence, absolutely no conflict, I felt like we could bring all of that love back into society – and change the world.” Continue reading...
