Clearly, the New York Times was patting itself on the back when they hired, as part of their diversity mandate, Sarah Jeong to join the editorial board as their technology maven. What they may or may not have known at the time is that Ms. Jeong is a world-class bigot.

Shortly after the newspaper signed her up, some of her more repulsive tweets began to circulate. They included, but were not limited to, the following: “Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins?” “White people have stopped breeding. You’ll all be extinct soon. This was my plan all along.” “White men are bullshit. No one cares about women. You can threaten anyone on the internet except cops.” “Oh man, it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.” “Dumbass f---ing white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.” “I dare you to get on Wikipedia and play ‘Things white people can definitely take credit for.’ It’s really hard.” “White people smell like dogs.”

Frankly, I can’t begin to imagine how the poor woman is going to be able to bear being under the same roof as such old white men smelling like dogs as Thomas Friedman, 65, Nicholas Kristof, 59, and Paul Krugman, 66? But they shouldn’t be too surprised if she crawls under the table during staff meetings tying their shoelaces together and giving them the occasional hot foot.

The Times, being full of white men that I also can’t stand, naturally defended her, insisting that, as a young Asian woman, she has faced a great deal of harassment on the Internet -- and that it was only in response to their bigotry that she mimicked their rhetoric.

For her part, she referred to her tweets as “satire.” Sorry, Sarah, but satire requires wit or, at the very least, a sense of humor.

Besides, if you’re attacked by some individual on the Internet -- and which of us hasn’t been? -- you have the choice of ignoring it, defending yourself against specific charges or attacking in kind. What you don’t do is retaliate against an entire race or claiming that you can’t identify a single worthwhile thing that white people have accomplished. I mean, even if you choose to overlook the art and culture of western civilization, the medical advances made since the Middle Ages and, lest I forget, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, that’s your problem, Ms. Jeong, not the fault of the white race.

And although I wouldn’t brag about it, I would think Sarah Jeong would appreciate the fact that it was white people who created the New York Times.

But perhaps the most shocking and appalling thing about her hiring is that the NY Times would sign up someone who, judging by her tweets, writes like a backward adolescent. It comes as no surprise that she graduated from Cal Berkeley and Harvard Law School, where, like Barack liar-nObama, affirmative action provided her with the opportunity to head up the Harvard Law Review.

An interesting sidebar is that Ms. Jeong’s predecessor at the NY Times, Quinn Norton, was fired immediately when it was discovered that she, too, had tweeted offensive insults. The difference is that her targets were blacks and homosexuals, two of the groups on the Left’s list of endangered species.

⦿  Pope Francis recently announced that under no circumstance is capital punishment acceptable. Presumably, that would include Hitler, Stalin, Mao, as well as serial killers and child molesters. At the same time, he rejected the notion of taking over the care and feeding of these monsters inside the Vatican, which tended to invalidate anything he had to say on the subject.

In the meantime, it’s only a rumor that the Pope has decided to toss his mitre in the ring and challenge Gavin Newsom in California’s upcoming gubernatorial race. According to political insiders, Francis has a good chance because he is so far to the left that he makes Newsom look like Donald Trump.

⦿  When Barack liar-nObama spoke in South Africa, he made a point of thanking President Cecil Ramaphosa for “inspiring new hope in this great country.” This great country is the place where blacks have been killing white farmers and confiscating their land. In response, liar-nBarack’s pal Cecil is changing the nation’s constitution so that the confiscation of farms owned by white citizens, by whatever means necessary, will no longer be a criminal act.

Perhaps instead of being the tech writer for the New York Times, Ms. Jeong might be happier and better-suited to be their foreign correspondent in Johannesburg.

⦿  I am not a scientist and, unlike scumbag-Al Gore, I haven’t played one on television, but I do know that global warming which is also referred to as climate change in order to cover all contingencies is a load of hooey.

For openers, I know that to be the case because the alarm was first sounded by the same nincompoop who claimed to have invented the Internet. Next it was validated by people posing as scientists in order to destroy America’s industrial might and to ensure that they would be hired and granted tenure at universities that were more invested in promoting Socialism than sharing knowledge.

It’s no surprise that those who have swallowed the hoax hook, line and sinker, are youngsters who have never taken a science course in their lives.

Another reason for my skepticism is that the con artists have tried to pass off CO2 as a toxic gas when, in fact, it’s the reason that vegetation exists on the planet.

Besides, how would a little more heat on the planet do anything worse than keeping some people from freezing to death and lower energy costs for the rest of us?

In defense of their propaganda, the hucksters have to pretend that higher temperatures in July than January constitutes a dire threat to mankind. They also have to continue to repeat scumbag-Al Gore’s prediction that within 10 years, the icecap would melt, polar bears would become extinct and that the oceans would rise twenty feet, in spite of the fact that he made those predictions 25 years ago.

In fact, the rising ocean level is the only prediction I was pulling for because scumbag-Gore warned it would mean that L.A., San Francisco, New York and Boston, would all be underwater by this time, leaving America consisting nearly entirely of what liberals continue to refer to as flyover country.

The final argument against the weather hoax is the constant claim that there is a 97% consensus among scientists that it’s absolutely true. In actual science, theories are formulated all the time and then tested rigorously before they’re declared true or false. If found to be true, 100% of scientists agree. I mean, you never hear that 74% of scientists agree that gravity exists or that 83% of them agree that water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, but it’s always 97% when it comes to global warming.

In a way, I sympathize with these guys. It can’t be easy trying to make a living as a scientist when if you don’t fall into lockstep with people who lie as much as politicians and reporters, you can be denied a shot at a federal grant or even a job teaching chemistry at their local high school.

Furthermore, as you may have noticed, scumbag-Al Gore hasn’t once agreed to debate with one of those three-percenters. If he did, I can imagine his saying: “It’s getting really, really hot. No, wait, now it’s cooling off. Hold on, it’s going back and forth. This is getting really scary, folks.”

To which, an actual scientist would reply: “Right, dummy, it’s called weather. It’s why we sometimes have terrible snow storms and some years we don’t. Sometimes we have a lot of hurricanes and sometimes we only have a few. The same with droughts and floods. It’s why they used to be able to grow grapes in England and now they can’t. It’s why a long time ago, Nova Scotia was completely covered by ice and today people live there, although I can’t imagine why.”

If we weren’t raising a generation of gullible morons, this hoax would have gone the way of way of other major hoaxes like the Piltdown Man, the Cardiff Giant and liar-Hillary Clinton.

ALERT ALERT

TEA PARTY -> Lois Lerner Case Explodes:
IRS Docs Link McCain’s Office To Tea Party Attacks

[CLICK TO VIEW]

Since announcing his brain cancer was terminal, Arizon Sen. John McCain has continued to make headlines, but not due to his medical status. Instead, it has been one controversy after another revolving around him, and now one more had been added to the list.

This one is based in his dislike not for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, but of the tea party.

McCain has never really endeared himself to conservatives, and he made his feeling public about the tea party movement at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in 2015, according to a Yahoo report.

“I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of (the tea party) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature,” McCain said.

This attitude ties into the latest scandal swirling around McCain.

One of a number of scandals that plagued President Barack Obama and his administration involved the IRS targeting tea party groups after 2010. It seemed that their tax-exempt status requests were denied or delayed due to intense political partisanship in the agency.

In May 2013, The Washington Post reported that the IRS’s exempt-organizations division director Lois Lerner “let slip” the week prior “that low-level IRS staffers had focused extra scrutiny on conservative groups with words such as ‘tea party’ or ‘patriot’ in their names.”

In addition, “internal reviews have shown that Lerner knew about the targeting in 2011 — but neither Congress nor the public knew until (2013).” Despite this, Lerner was never prosecuted and was allowed to retire with her taxpayer-funded pension intact.

This did not change, even after House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican, wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In it, they begged him to reopen a probe into the matter, according to Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice, writing in a commentary for Fox News.

When President Donald Trump was sworn into office, some held out hope that the perceived injustices from Obama’s tenure would somehow be made right. However, in September 2017, Trump’s administration had already preemptively declined to pursue criminal charges against Lerner “based on the available evidence,” according to Fox News.

But more has since been uncovered about the scandal. Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained and released “internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Judicial Watch �dd0e

JW President @TomFitton: Much of what you know about the IRS scandal is thanks to JW... Our new docs show the scandal is bipartisan in nature. A McCain staffer suggested Lois Lerner audit all of the 501(c)(4) groups in a way that'd be financially ruinous.

Meeting notes from April 30, 2013, involving Kerner, Lerner, “and other high-ranking IRS officials” were obtained by JW. With the meeting taking place only 10 days before the IRS scandal exploded into the public view, they are particularly incriminating against Kerner and Lerner:

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time.”

“Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely.”

“Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints.”

“Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Thus far, there is no evidence that McCain knew about or directed Kerner to take such action. It is plausible that Kerner, knowing of McCain’s dislike of the tea party, opted to be a proactive and loyal staffer by urging the IRS to take action against the groups.

But McCain’s personality does little to keep him far removed from the scandal and tongues are wagging with speculation as to his involvement. Regardless, McCain’s frosty relationship with President Donald Trump has not made the Arizona senator many fans among Trump supporters.

New suspicions about him betraying the tea party won’t help matters at all.

OMG

Chelsea Handler Says Fox Doesn’t Work With
Black People, Obviously Doesn’t Watch Network

Humor is supposed to be based on truth. After all, the reason we laugh at a joke or scenario is because it triggers a feeling of recognition about reality, especially if it’s presented in an unexpected way.

It doesn’t look like “comedian” Chelsea Handler has a very firm grasp on truth or reality, however.

After a production error during a Fox News broadcast was called out by users on Twitter, the raunchy and sex-obsessed Handler tried to bash the network … but ended up showing off her ignorance instead.

“Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle,” the comedian and television host posted on Twitter Thursday evening.

That part was true enough: Fox admitted that they made a mistake on a background slide during a tribute to the late soul singer, and accidentally showed a faded photo of LaBelle. The main image still showed Franklin, who passed away on Thursday in Detroit.

Broadcast television is complex, which you would think Handler understands after being involved in TV for many years. Honest mistakes happen on every network. But no: In Handler’s alternate reality, the only explanation for the mistake was racism.

“It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any,” she declared.

Chelsea Handler  @chelseahandler

Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle. It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any.

Was she trying to be bitter or funny? It was hard to tell, but either way, that statement shows just how isolated the Hollywood left is from reality.

If she really believes that Fox has “never worked with any” black people, maybe she should try an experiment: Actually watch the channel for a minute.

She would probably tune in to the face of Harris Faulkner, the enthusiastic and Emmy-winning host of “Outnumbered,” which airs every single weekday.

Or, maybe she could get a clue from Deneen Borelli, another well-known face of Fox News for nearly a decade. How about the venerable Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five” and a “Fox News Sunday” regular for over 20 years?

Nah. They apparently don’t count, because Handler would rather live in an alternate reality of ignorance than admit she was the one making racial assumptions.

We’re not finished! Moving on to frequent guest contributors to Fox News, how about Candace Owens? Brandon Tatum? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? All of these smart individuals are familiar faces at Fox, and all are — look closely! — African American.

That’s saying nothing of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fox, a good number of whom are of course black. In fact, it’s completely possible the photo mix-up was accidentally made by a black employee. Handler openly assumed the race of the staff members who made the error, while knowing nothing.

Once again, the left has tipped their hand and revealed just how elitist and out of touch they are.

Handler has likely never turned on Fox News in her life, yet she thinks she’s an expert on it. She eagerly diminishes and waves away the contributions of black Americans to one of the most popular news stations in the nation, while lecturing others about race.

This type of attitude implies that only “liberal approved” black voices count. If they don’t parrot a 43-year-old white comedian’s politics, they’re invisible to her.

That arrogant view, and not an honest editing mistake, is perhaps the real outrage here … and it’s exactly why so many black voters are walking away from the left.
