The insanity of ESPN and Leftist news

This is Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Just ask any Leftist at ESPN.

Here I present for you two stories: one that you’d swear wasn’t true but is — and a story that isn’t true but Leftist journalists insisted was.

Whaaat??

You won’t believe it either.

First, the true story you’d swear wasn’t. Yes, it’s absolutely that over-the-top ridiculous.

From FoxNews.com:

ESPN pulls Asian-American announcer from Virginia football game because he has a Confederate general’s name

In the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Va., ESPN decided to pull one of its announcers from calling a University of Virginia football game — because his name is Robert Lee.

Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game “simply because of the coincidence of his name,” ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

No. I am not kidding. Watch.

Yes, precisely. ESPN believes its audience is so inherently daft that it cannot possibly begin to readily differentiate between a young Asian sports commentator and a dead, old Confederate Army Caucasoid general with a beard and long hair.

If you think that’s wondrous — but wait. There’s more.

The American Media Maggots actually believed that on Tucker Carlson’s Monday show he was gravely serious when he said that President Trump looking at the sun during the solar eclipse was “perhaps the most impressive thing any president has ever done.” YGBFKM.

No. I am as deadly serious as the man in this video.

It’s a joke but it’s not a joke. No, it’s much more serious than that. Wait, it’s perhaps the most seriously insightful thing in months.

Nathan McDermott of CNN bit. Big time.

The UK’s Claire Phipps at the Guardian also chomped.

Binkowski is even more serious. This is her specific Tweet. Grok that.

At least the bald dude had a semblance of a clue, but not much. Wait until you see and hear the reactions of the American Media Maggots who were truly and nakedly beyond stupid. Who best to point out said stupidity but Tucker Carlson himself and Greg Gutfeld.

Just as the humorless Leftists have time and again proven themselves bereft of facts, much less compassion, they continue to subvert America hand-in-bloody-hand with the American Media Maggots, Antifa, anarchists and the willing complicity of Demorats.

I’ve said before and continue to say: “you can’t write this shite.”

Still, the Left-embracing American Media Maggots fundamentally cannot believe anyone would deign to possess the temerity to label them Fake News.

As they simultaneously bleed cash, readers, advertising and — Leftist journalistas themselves. I wonder why the AMM doesn’t dare to speak about the heinous, slashing cuts in newsrooms all across the fruited plain? And the fact that their ponderous corporations pay for shite?

“Give the governor a harumph!”

They’ve gotta keep their phony-baloney jobs!

When Leftist women hate their male children

[NOTE: today is a driving day for ol’ BZ, as he’s taking his Kraut Kar on another long journey into the fiery 110-degree depths of a Las Vegas summer for the 10th Anniversary of the Freedom Fest, this year held at the Paris Resort. The rest of the week will be concerned primarily with broadcasting and not so much blogging. To listen to the coverage of Freedom Fest, click on this SHR Media Network link and you’ll hear myself, Sack Heads Shaun, Sack Heads Clint, the Underground Professor and others. Lots of radio and media this week, so frequently check the SHR Media site as well as that of Dan Butcher’s High Plains Pundit. Excelsior!]

The week’s likely final political post (I’ll be otherwise occupied by working Freedom Fest with the SHR Media Network team) is one of Leftist philosophy not only run amok but truly moving into the dangerous category.

It is a story of, well, let me be honest: a Leftist mother trying to mindfuck her two sons. Crude, yes, but I believe a totally appropriate encapsulation of the situation involving people very close to her. Sadly, her very own family. Specifically, her two young teenage sons.

And she’s pissed because it’s not working as she’d trained them. In fact, it may have created quite the opposite affect.

Let’s start at the start, with the original WashintonPost.com article back in September of 2016.

My teen boys are blind to rape culture

by Jody Allard

“Oh boy,” my son said, rolling his eyes. “Not rape culture again.”

We were sitting around the dinner table talking about the news. As soon as I mentioned the Stanford sexual assault case, my sons looked at each other. They knew what was coming. They’ve been listening to me talk about consent, misogyny and rape culture since they were tweens. They listened to me then, but they are 16 and 18 now and they roll their eyes and argue when I talk to them about sexism and misogyny.

“There’s no such thing as rape culture,” my other son said. “You say everything is about rape culture or sexism.”

I never imagined I would raise boys who would become men like these.

Stop. Read that over again: “I never imagined I would raise boys who would become men like these.”

Leftist translation: people who didn’t automatically buy into and keep a tight grip on the quite one-sided philosophy I’d attempted to ingrain into their wheelhouses over the years. The indoctrination hasn’t stuck. Therefore they are bad boys. Soon to be very bad men. Get that: bad men.

I never imagined I would raise boys who would become men like these. Men who deny rape culture, or who turn a blind eye to sexism. Men who tell me I’m being too sensitive or that I don’t understand what teenage boys are like. “You don’t speak out about this stuff, mom,” they tell me with a sigh. “It’s just not what teenagers do.”

Shame on them for speaking like this. Shame on them for wanting to actually enjoy their young lives and their teens and not quivering in abject fear of encountering life thinking that everyone and everything is out to penetrate, hurt and kill you.

It’s too uncomfortable to separate themselves from the pack so they continue to at least dip their toes into toxic masculinity.

Allard won’t be honest to you and me about this, so I’ll be honest for her. What she means has nothing to do with situational toxicity. She means that all masculinity is toxic. She’ll stand on her platform of victimhood slitting her wrists in public and readily damning everyone around her — but she won’t step into the light of honesty and clarity, two elements I highly prize.

My son didn’t call out his friend. He didn’t remind him that lack of enthusiastic consent means there is no consent. He didn’t say a word to him about consent at all, other than to ask the initial question, and that inaction hung heavy in the room between us. My sons, who are good boys and who know all about consent, do not speak out about consent. Not when it’s uncomfortable. Not when it might jeopardize their social standing. My sons who hate hearing about their own privilege nestle inside it like a blanket and accuse me of making up its existence.

As I said about various other SJW topics, the trend has been this:

  • From tolerance,
  • To acceptance,
  • To advocacy.

If you are not an active advocate of every SJW issue and then some, you are subject to all possible means of belittling, shame, censorship or even violence — justified as it would be by their superior sense of Leftist righteousness. Even, in this case, the public — yes, the public — shaming and potential destruction of a Leftist woman’s own children. Children who are not mentally prepared to fight you in a public venue and likely have absolutely no interest in doing so. You are their mother. That is how your sons see you first and foremost.

To you it makes no difference. They exist but to be made negative examples of in your world. Your relationship means nothing. They are now no more than tools you apply to a particular SJW problem. With a very specific point: you see them as the problem. You say so clearly. You get to use them.

My sons are part of the problem.

They’d rather just see you as Mom.

Allow me to stop again. The following paragraph needs to be included in my post.

I’m a survivor of rape and sexual abuse. My sons know this like they know I was once a reporter and I love curries and coffee. But they have never been sexually abused, and they can’t fathom what it’s like to stand in a scalding hot shower trying to burn away the touch of a stranger’s hands. I’ve told them why dismantling rape culture is so important to me, but they will never truly understand how survivors feel.

Jody, I am sorry for your past. It was an evil act perpetrated by an evil person. I know crime. I know evil. I know what it looks like and what it smells like. I know how and why it operates. I’ve spoken to many a woman like you. I’ve fought it for 41 years. I suspect that’s possibly longer than you’ve been on the planet. I’ve investigated sexual assault cases. I’ve investigated child abuse cases. I’ve investigated homicides. I’m sorry for your past. But you use your past like a battering ram and, now, against your own children. You feel entitled to do so. They’ve stepped “out of line” so now the gloves are off.

I sense something here, and it is quite very disturbing. I sense that you really wouldn’t mind if your sons experienced something precisely like you did. More on that later.

In your superior and all-knowing SJW way, you have the luxury of being an absolutist. I had no such luxury whatsoever when I investigated these crimes. Because on whomever I focused I had the potential to truly destroy utterly and with finality. Your current ability to destroy, in fact, pales to my past abilities  I had the power of incarceration and the complete removal of most freedoms whatsoever. To place people into an environment I’ll touch upon below.

You’re under no such obligation. You don’t have the responsibility. That’s a massive luxury the likes of which I don’t believe you appreciate. I also believe you don’t appreciate the truth. Violent crime in the 1990s, when I was active in detectives, was booming. Since that time crime — and rape — trended down markedly. It is only now, since around 2014 or so, beginning to trend back up but for entirely different reasons than in the 1990s.

I’ll let you in on a dirty little secret as well, Allard. Roughly 40% of the rape claims of women investigated by my department in the 1990s were false. Regrets, guilt or untenable social positions. But we were told by our superiors to not let this cat out of the bag, mention it to no one and, further, take no action whatsoever against those pretenders who wasted our time, forced us to spend taxpayer dollars and usually ended up skulking out the doors with lowered heads. Rightly so. It would have had a “chilling effect” we were told. The only “chilling effect” was upon the women who were true victims. False claims denigrated and, in a way, raped these women a second time. Men didn’t do that. The women did that.

But this is where you cross the line.

I wanted to believe that sharing my experience with them would make them understand. And even more important, that understanding would breed action; but that’s where the disconnect arose. My sons understand, as best as teenage boys can. But they aren’t willing to sacrifice their own comfort for my sake, or for anyone else. When it comes to speaking out against rape culture and questioning their own ideas and behavior, they become angry and defensive.

Wait.

Not all men, they remind me, and my guts wrench as my own sons mimic the vitriol of a thousand online trolls.

“They remind me.” “Not all men.” And it’s “trolling” to dare to possess the temerity to remind women that not all men are rapists. This is where you became unhinged, Allard. You reveal your own damage in the final paragraph.

And in this broken system, anyone who isn’t with us is against us. Particularly, and especially, men. Even my own sons — even yours. It’s not enough to teach our sons about consent; we have to encourage them to have the courage to speak out against rape culture, too.

Allard has, since September, decided to double down on the attacks on her sons with a recent July 6th article in RoleReboot.com (that’s called a clue):

I’m Done Pretending Men Are Safe (Even My Sons)

I have two sons. They are strong and compassionate—the kind of boys other parents are glad to meet when their daughters bring them home for dinner. They are good boys, in the ways good boys are, but they are not safe boys. I’m starting to believe there’s no such thing.

Meaning: my sons are rapists. They just haven’t done it yet. But they will. They are men.

I wrote an essay in The Washington Post last year, during the height of the Brock Turner case, about my sons and rape culture. I didn’t think it would be controversial when I wrote it; I was sure most parents grappled with raising sons in the midst of rape culture.

Again, not one toe in reality. I’ll wager most parents are not thinking their sons are nothing more than rapists-in-waiting.

One of my sons was hurt by my words, although he’s never told me so. He doesn’t understand why I lumped him and his brother together in my essay. He sees himself as the “good” one, the one who is sensitive and thoughtful, and who listens instead of reacts. He doesn’t understand that even quiet misogyny is misogyny, and that not all sexists sound like Twitter trolls. He is angry at me now, although he won’t admit that either, and his anger led him to conservative websites and YouTube channels; places where he can surround himself with righteous indignation against feminists, and tell himself it’s ungrateful women like me who are the problem.

How joyous to come to realize that your own mother only tolerates you on good days and despises you on bad days.

And remember, “conservative websites” and YouTube channels do nothing but provide those of dim mind a “righteous indignation.” There is no room for discussion or for any kind of viewpoint other than Allard’s. Just ask her.

I’ll wager, Allard, that you well and truly do not know how your sons feel about you.

But wait; there’s more buttery Leftist goodness coming where not just paintbrushes are utilized but massive rollers. Check this:

I know I’m not supposed to cast an entire sex with a single paint brush — not all men, I’m sure some readers are thinking and preparing to type or tweet. But if it’s impossible for a white person to grow up without adopting racist ideas, simply because of the environment in which they live, how can I expect men not to subconsciously absorb at least some degree of sexism? White people aren’t safe, and men aren’t safe, no matter how much I’d like to assure myself that these things aren’t true.

At least she said it outright.

  • All men are rapists, and
  • All Caucasoids are racists

Hey, Allard? Hold up you’re hand. You’re a Cauc. But wait again. That makes her sons the worst of the worst. They are inherent sexists, rapists and racists, all in one.

My God woman, how could they have sprung from your liberated loins? The shame, the rush of revulsion you must feel. Then this surprising bit of honesty on her part.

I’m through wasting my time on people who are more interested in ideas than feelings, and I’m through pretending these people, these men, are safe.

Translated: facts mean nothing. Feelings mean everything. Do you finally get it, folks?

Her articles should be read. We need to understand well and truly how people like her think and how it distorts their world and permeates every fiber of their being and every second of their lives. Interesting reactions can be found here and here and here and here as well.

Thank God not all women live in the demented and stilted world in which Allard lives.

Jody Allard, I’m closing with this; I referred to it above. I sensed something in your articles, in your philosophies, in your manner and in your writings, and I believe it is deeply disturbing. You are here, you exist, to make points. Points that, in my opinion, not only involve you but overwhelm you. I sense that you really wouldn’t mind if your sons experienced something on the order of what you did. Up to and until then they can never understand which is why, in your world, in my opinion, you’d not mind if more men were raped. You get your wish, you know, every day.

In men’s prisons. It’s what they do.

They are criminals and they are evil.

Evil exists. I am sorry it visited you.

Please don’t visit it upon others.

Please not your sons.

BZ

P.S.

And Jody Allard, I have not even touched the subject of boys and young men being coerced or forced into sex by older women or women in power. Sadly, however, in my opinion, I don’t believe you carry the capacity to think this is the most remote of issues.

 

Too good to pass up

Don’t you occasionally see a video and think: “I just have to pass that thing along”?

This would be my applicable video today.

Yes, there was a carbonated beverage at hand on my desk and, luckily, I was not drinking it when I watched the video, otherwise it would have been blown out my nose and onto the computer screen before me. Think of the tragedy.

P.S.

In response to the actual video itself, the schadenfreude is beyond sweet. Who would otherwise try to run over a motorcyclist?

 

The bitter insanity of Kathy Griffin and female Leftists

“Bitter, table for three ancient womenses please.”

First, Kathy Griffin, who considers herself a “comedian,” thought it was absolutely uproarious to release the above photo by Tyler Shields (Shields considered the photo a, quote, “piece of art.”) this past Friday, June 2nd. Of course, just as she predicted, it was met with wave after wave of gut-busting laughter due to the brilliant comedic content. Clearly, her humor is sophisticated, polished, highbrow, well-informed, cosmopolitan, advanced and perfectly nuanced for that slight Leftist flair.

Nothing says “fun” like a good decapitation joke. Just ask ISIS.

Since then, however, there’s been just a bit of a kerfuffle involving her interpretation of comedy, to include the insertion of the United States Secret Service. Boy! No one could possibly have seen any of that coming, right?

Griffin apologized sans makeup on Saturday (going for the put-upon victim look so fashionable with Leftists today) when she realized the backlash was pretty much instantaneous and growing. As far as she was concerned, however, that was that. Nothing more to see here, move on. I’m a “comedian” after all.

Except that history, social media and a burgeoning negative response combined to provide its own little tsunami of backlash for Ms Kathy. One problem was that Barron Trump, President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son, believed for a time his father truly was harmed when he was Griffin’s photo displayed on television. This event was later belittled by the Leftist lawyer Griffin had acquired for her scenario. Proper form. Belittle an 11-year-old in public media as a means of self-defense.

Of course, the internet tends to keep unsavory bits around in various closets longer than many would wish, including Kathy Griffin, whose mindset to this was already revealed back in December of 2016 to Vulture.com in which the headline read:

Kathy Griffin Thinks Comedy Should Go All Out on ‘President Piece of Shit’ Donald Trump

by Shira Levine

It’s a question a lot of comedians are asking themselves lately: What should comedy look like during the Trump presidency?

“It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”

Now that’s an interview and some copy the likes of which you can be beamingly-proud.

But wait. Then came the second media gaggle in which Kathy Griffin, ensconced once again in Orchidée Impériale cake makeup and hot asphalt street sealer, in a rambling, self-serving and sometimes incoherent presser eschewed most every minuscule bit of responsibility whatsoever, laying the blame squarely and rightly upon the scary and oppressive shoulders of Donald and Barron Trump.

With her attorney, of course. And with a backdrop touting her attorney, of course. Because that’s what you do when you want to apologize and get things straight, is bring your attorney, Lisa Bloom, who is the daughter of Gloria Allred. Message received.

Then you double-down on “it’s not my fault, I’m not responsible.”

The full-court-press Leftist Insanity Tour press conference is below. Watch it if you dare.

I include this only to display the nakedly unhinged lengths to which Leftists will travel in order to find fault with everyone but themselves. Rivulets of tears, Kathy? Uh, no. Not even one damned good tear. We have an axiom in the cop trade and, as I said when interviewing suspects: you don’t get through unless you acquire actual tears and snot.

Sorry. Don’t see your tears much less your snot. You’re as believable as a time-share salesman. Or any one of today’s reporters.

‘There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!’ Kathy Griffin breaks down in tears claiming Trump family ruined her life – as her lawyer scoffs at report Barron was upset over severed head video

by Chris Spargo

  • Kathy Griffin broke down in tears speaking about the constant attacks from the public and members of the Trump family over the past few days
  • She said that she has been receiving constant death threats, which she described as detailed and specific
  • Griffin, 56, also said that President Trump ‘broke’ her and that she does not expect her career to recover from his family’s attacks 
  • She added that she will not back down from this fight, saying: ‘I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully’
  • Griffin said that the photo shoot was inspired by Megyn Kelly, and the comment Trump made to the then-Fox News host about ‘blood coming out of everywhere’
  • It was also confirmed at the press conference that the Secret Service is investigating Griffin over the image

Later in the interview Griffin said that her career was likely over now as a result of this incident, and that President Trump had ‘broke’ her, moments after she declared: ‘There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!’

Griffin, 56, declared at one point that this would not be happening to her if she was a ‘white man.’

There we go. We knew we’d finally get there. It’s the White Man’s Burden to carry. She is not responsible. Everyone else is. It’s Caucasoids. Except that. Ahem. She is a Caucasoid. And amongst the palest of the pale. Caspar. Milquetoast. Becky. Ginger. She’s likely a Mud Shark as well.

Let’s see. How many Caucasoids have held up what can only be interpreted as the severed head of ANY President of the United States

Uh, yeah. Ahem. Zero.

Presidential children are also under the gunsights of Leftists. Bloom agrees.

Her lawyer Lisa Bloom also suggested during the press conference that despite reports, Barron was likely not that upset after seeing the image of Griffin with the decapitated head by stating the child was ‘allegedly’ traumatized.

‘We don’t know that. You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false,’ said Bloom.

Of course. It’s all Barron’s fault anyway.

After making a few jokes and stating that she stands by the apology she released earlier this week, Griffin said: ‘The president and his grown children and the first lady are personally trying to ruin my life forever.’

So I suppose because the president and/or his family responded to the event itself on social media, those acts are forbidden? They are proscribed?

Griffin also tried to explain the reason behind the photo and video shoot by saying: ‘I am not good at being appropriate.’

I’m massively ugly, but I’m not even in another galaxy this emaciatingly ugly. KG needs an immediate steak, some slabs of bacon and a few McDonald’s shakes. I know cockroaches or mealworms with greater appetites. “Clavicles & Wattled Necks R Us.” Just ask Nancy Pelosi and Hillary.

I’m not for everybody,. I am barely an acquired taste frankly,’ admitted Griffin.

‘I’ve had everybody turn on me. And I just want to make people laugh.’

That being said, Griffin declared: ‘I am not laying down for this guy.’

The comedian did not however say anything about her relationship with President Trump, who she has known for 20 years.

Then, no shock.

At a rambling press conference Friday, Griffin tearfully predicted her career is over and said Trump “broke me.” Since the video was posted Tuesday, she has lost her job co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special and had all her upcoming comedy shows cancelled. Trump, first lady Melania Trump and Donald Trump Jr. have publicly criticized the video.

Let the Leftist Pity Party commence.

Apparently President Trump’s children are subject to beat-downs and ridicule by every Leftist female, not just Kathy Griffin, as Nancy Pelosi said this about the Trump family and grandchildren.

The only inference, I suppose, is that instead of breathing air like most humans, Trump’s eight grandchildren inhale brimstone from the fiery depths of Hell. What else can one conclude from this insane and despicable statement? I wonder: would she have had the temerity to say this of Barack Obama or Bill Clinton? You know the answer.

But wait; there’s more.

Let us not forget that even after seven months Hillary Clinton cannot come to terms with her staggering presidential loss and continues to bleat that it’s everyone’s fault but her own, to include misogynistic womenses, tidal pull and sunspots.

And oh, yes, the DNC was to blame for insufficient support — otherwise translated as AYFKM, or, Are You Fucking Kidding Me? The DNC purposely hosed Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton to the point where it is being sued by Sanders supporters.

Led Zeppelin had the perfect tonal solution for her current plight as you can joyously hear in their 1976 song from the album “Presence.”

Because, in fact, it was all nobody’s fault but hers. (A shameless excuse to listen to a great band whilst you read the rest of the post.)

By the way, want some of the bitter truth about Hillary Clinton? Here is one of the women Bill Clinton took abed whilst married to Hillary, Sally Miller.

Let’s see: Kathy Griffin. Nancy Pelosi. Hillary Clinton. This does not yield the Ultimate Responsibility Female Crew for 2017.

Let’s remember folks, if you’re a Leftist, you’re nothing unless you possess some massive and important form of victimhood.

It’s a ruse, folks, it’s all a ruse to get you to bite the hook willingly and, whilst hooked, let loose with all your cash and then, further, make you feel guilty about having been hooked in the first place and then not having willingly surrendered your life sufficiently early.

But now, every photo, video, comment or story can be chalked up to comedy, right, and must be excused in the name of comedy, right?

Just ask Kathy Griffin.
