My issue with Jeung is the lack of self awareness, and her elitist snobbishness of her Harvard Law School education. She is an Uncle Tom in the Clarence Thomas sense in that she was one of the few Asians admitted to Harvard and it may be intentional because f her political views.

She edited the Harvard journal of gender and race, so logically she could cover videogames,
This is why a gay Catholic brit of Greek extraction became a deplorable.

It's not an honor to go to Harvard Law School if you get in because of your COLOR.

Imagine what Jackie Robinson would be thinking.

That Reason piece provides no support for its premise--were the tweets imitating actual harassers or not? No answer other than the author's assurance that it didn't seem that way to him. No links or actual evidence one way or the other.

He also says that it is hypocritical for white people to call for her firing. Really? I don't care whether she gets fired or just mercilessly mocked along with her employers--but she appears to be genuinely racist against white people. Particularly if, as the author claims, she's lying about her claim that she's imitating people who harassed her. Indeed, it appears to be the primary reason the NYT hired her in the first place.

Ah I'm one of those old white guys that Ms. Dipstick tweeted she enjoyed being cruel to.

Being a millenial, and probably not that much into Elvis, she might not enjoy being locked up in a cell with all the comforts of home--and Elvis singing "Don't Be Cruel" piped in on an endless tape loop 24/7/365. When she's learned her lesson, she can go free.

My two cents on the culture wars from my geezer perspective. Roseanne Barr gets canned for saying that Valerie Jarrett looks like a character from Planet of the Apes. The star of the original Planet of the Apes was Charlton Heston who also started in Omega Man and was the President of the NRA. The theme of those movies is that Heston was last man standing in the way of destruction a la Trump today.

The other popular movies during that time were The Sting, HUD, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Bonnie and Clyde. In a sense the left was glorifying the villains since it was in vogue to be anti establishment. Problem is that they are the establishment now and are so self unaware.

The level of hatred and the willingness to disparage my family and our great company has never been so ugly and unrelenting as I have seen recently by the @WashingtonPost. It is clearly coming from the top with one motivation in mind. @JeffBezos

===========

I honor this family for stepping forward, risking their business and their safety.

One of the reasons I think Trump has had a plan all along is that he would never have cavalierly risked the safety of his wife and kids. Don Jr. and Eric have been stalwart in their defense of their father, as has Lara, Eric's wife. Ivanka and Jared are, of course, within the administration and have additional security; Eric and Don Jr. have to pay for their own.

Maine drivers have been sent warnings about non-payment of EZ-Pass,when in fact the toll has been paid. Howie is receiving texts from drivers from all over New England with the same problem.

stuck on stupid,

I agree they are trying to portray him as Nixon.

Unfortunately, this won't work for a few reasons:

1. Nixon is no longer thought of as a villain except by the far left.

2. The press has not only demonized Trump, but also his supporters, so none of the supporters are going to support the press.

3. Trump was a known celebrity before he ran and people liked him. In addition, unlike Nixon, he doesn't maintain a "dignified silence." He comes out and says that the whole thing is bogus.

Democrats baselessly accuse Virginia GOP candidate of 'campaigning with' a white supremacist, news media faithfully repeat the charge

ABC News, for example, reported this week that the Democrat in the race, Leslie Cockburn, has “knocked her opponent for his alleged ties to neo-Confederate groups.” The report added that, “Riggleman has been accused of campaigning with known white supremacist Isaac Smith, co-founder of white nationalist group Unity & Security for America.”

ABC leaves it at just that.

Vanity Fair reported elsewhere that Riggleman has not denied he appeared with Smith.

The more hyper-partisan newsrooms have taken it even further. The Verge, for example, claimed Riggleman has a “willingness to hit the campaign trail with avowed white nationalist.” BoingBoing similarly described the GOP candidate as someone, “who campaigned with a white supremacist.”

Here’s the thing, though: There’s nothing to show Riggleman has “campaigned with” Smith, certainly not in any way suggested by that term. The best that anyone can say is that Smith once appeared in a crowd at an event hosted by Riggleman’s campaign.

Extraneus
This all originates with the left-wing blog Blue Virginia, which claimed on June 27 that Riggleman had “taken a page out of [GOP Virginia Senate candidate Cory Stewart’s] book as he has hit the campaign trail with a well-known white supremacist. ... Despite all of the hate and vitriol Isaac Smith stands for, Denver Riggleman proudly campaigned with him recently in VA-05.”

The blog’s "proof" that Riggleman and Smith “campaigned together” is a video showing Smith standing in the back of crowd at a Riggleman rally.

Blue Virginia’s claim was parroted later by Cockburn, who tweeted on July 29, “My opponent Denver Riggleman, running mate of Corey Stewart, was caught on camera campaigning with a white supremacist.”

Riggleman himself told Rolling Stone magazine he had no idea about Smith's presence, or anything else about him.

Ed Markey, and his fellow Dems are why Mitch needs to go nuclear with 51 votes. Of course, the problem is he still has to deal with McCain, Flake, Collins, and all the other Rinos in order to get that. Trump needs to keep beating that drum.

Re Leong and HLS: I doubt her Asian background helped her at HLS. She most likely had a higher hurdle to navigate than of pallor and favored diversity candidates. She's probably bright and hardworking.

Re her tweets: Bright and hardworking individuals can act, write and speak despicably. That she has done, and NY Times is supporting her in any event.

If I didn't know better, I'd say that a secret Trump supporter was behind both Leong's hiring by NY Times and Ocasio-Cortez's socialism tour with Bernie.

Pin, early 80s I was on the board of a housing company in Philadelphia* (on South Street). Most tenants were Section 8, several thousand units. Govt paid late, tenants rarely paid their 25% as required. You couldn't toss them in the street. When Mayor Goode teamed up with MOVE to burn down several city blocks in West Philly, other board members wanted to offer free housing to the displaced. As in charging $0 to either the tenants or the city. The housing NGO activists are insane. As the firm was for profit, I was able to veto that move. Then I made an offer, either I buy you out or you buy me out... you pick the number and I'll pick who buys. You wanna see a bunch of grifters shit bricks? Try that on them. (Ultimately, I sold then moved to DC for a while).

Let me explain why I think this is the purest of bullshit. If you want to respond to trolls by trolling them, you respond to them directly. You don’t post slurs about an entire race of people (the overwhelming majority of whom are not trolls) on an open-forum website like Twitter. And these racist tweets were not just a function of one sudden exasperated vent at a harasser; they continued for two years. Another tweet from 2016 has her exclaiming: “fuck white women lol.”
