No Clean Slate for Karens!

On Memorial Day, in Central Park, a white woman—derisively dubbed “Karen” before she was doxed as New York City resident Amy Cooper—lost her cool after being confronted by an apparently outraged birdwatcher (a black man) named Christian Cooper (no relation). After threatening Amy Cooper’s dog (by his own admission), and telling her that he would do something “you’re not going to like,” Christian Cooper began to record the visibly distraught dogwalker, who then called the police, emphasizing the race of the man she claimed was harassing her. Christian Cooper’s video was posted online, and, within hours, a Twitter mob

“We do not tolerate racism.” The Twitter mob celebrated. But we firmly support rabid, lawless vigilantism and we'll dox you if you disagree even a little bit.

Now if the races were reversed, the lady black and the bird-watcher white, and the call had been "a white guy is harassing me here." who, then would have taken the rap.

This is the predictable result of two entitled liberals clashing over a minor incident and turning it into a nationalized drama. I could not care less about either one of them.

She should sue her (former) employer. She was not representing it, nor was it even named until the Twitter mob published it. She did nothing illegal. Telling police that the man was black was a statement of fact, and should not have mattered in the response. Liberals just hate it when political correctness backfires and wounds one of their own- especially when they didn't know their victim was one of them!

Yes she's an idiot. I really cant stand the Karens who have emerged of late to belittle us, bully us, and call the law down on us for these silly corona slights. But she was an idiot on her own time, not wearing a company uniform or in a company car. Had "the internet" not ratted her out, her employment would never have been known. This is wrong on several levels. Her opinions are her own and what she does on her own time is her own business. The tyranny of the minority again.

The only winner here is the dog who I believe was removed from her "care". She certainly was dragging that little pooch around at the end of the video. Clearly she should never be a pet parent as she is not suited for that responsibility or privilege.

Okay. You're in Central Park, not exactly a quiet little oasis of trees and some lady's dog is bothering the birds? Really? And if I call the police because some person is threatening me. I sure as heck am going to provide the person's physical appearance which includes skin color.

My biggest problem with all of this is/was the fact that rather than putting the dog on a leash, she almost strangled it by holding its collar. As to the "innocent" bird watcher, if his comments are real, he was playing the race card as much as she was.

Karen wigged out, understandably, since he seemed to be threatening her dog. And then the silly dog was jumping around while she was trying to get it leashed with one hand while calling 911 with the other. It's not going to be a good look. But this whole episode is more about our national insanity with "racism" than anything else. By the way, this piece refers to the "de jure" racial discrimination of the 1960's. Apparently the author hasn't heard about the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

His sister edited the video prior to posting it. He kept dog treats in his pocket because when he's out he often encounters people with their dogs unleashed. She was apparently concerned he might poison her dog (I'm going to do something but you won't like it) -- while he wasn't going to poison the pooch, there was a slightly gleeful sinisterism to his comment. Look, I don't care what color he was, if a stranger offered a treat to my dog in the middle of a park/forest, I'd be concerned. In my mind both of them acted like asses. And she should sue her former employer - they caved way too quickly. Who gave him a badge to harass dog walkers? Is everyone giving him too much room for b.s. because of the color of his skin? We are becoming a nation of screwed-up victims.

I thought Sarah Huckabee Sanders was the greatest White House press spokesperson of all time because of the way she treated the press corps (that’s pronounced “core,” Mr. Obama) like unruly and slow-learning kindergarten kids, as they deserve to be treated. But Kayleigh McEnany has turned it up to 11, not only treating the press corps like children, but as the enemy as well, which they are. And note the left dare not make the charge that she is a bimbo—though you know they really want to—lest they fall afoul of charges of sexism. Remember when the media complained that the White House had discontinued the daily press briefing?

One week ago, just as it was true one year ago, Amy Klobuchar was obviously the best bet to serve as Joe Biden's running mate. A wildly popular swing state senator who had boosted her national profile with a respectable presidential run, Klobuchar clearly could cement Biden's popularity with suburban women. Those women are the key cohort who sat out in 2016, handing the White House to President Trump but crucially delivering Democrats the House of Representatives just two years later. Klobuchar fulfilled the first rule of running mates — first, do no harm — and provided an obvious advantage with the Electoral College map.

For most of Donald Trump’s brief political career, chaos has been his friend. He draws energy from an endless storm of difficulties and controversies that would send most presidents into the fetal position. Critics and supporters alike compare his presidency to a reality television show, one that always ends with the leading man getting the last word. From Russia, Russia, Russia to Ukraine and impeachment, Trump’s time in the White House has been a continuing roller-coaster ride between danger on one side and disaster on the other.

President Trump on Saturday said he is postponing the G7 until at least September and that he hopes to invite additional countries to participate in the summit. The White House initially announced in March that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the G7 meeting set for June of the seven major industrial nations -- Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan, along with the U.S. -- would be held by video conference instead of at Camp David. But in recent days, Trump had talked about reviving an in-person summit this summer, possibly at the White House and at Camp David. Yet on Saturday, the president said he would postpone

Damage to police vehicles and assaults against law enforcement officers Saturday night prompted San Francisco Mayor London Breed to call for an immediate curfew until 5 a.m. local time -- and to request that California National Guard personnel be placed on standby. "What we are seeing tonight -- the violence, the vandalism and the crimes being committed in our city, not against property but against other people -- that is something that we will not tolerate," Breed said, according to FOX 2 of the Bay Area.

An additional 140 House Republicans have joined a lawsuit Friday filed earlier this week against Speaker Nancy Pelosi over new rules in the lower chamber allowing for proxy voting. The suit was initially filed Tuesday by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy joined by 20 GOP lawmakers and four constituents on the eve of the first time members of the House have ever voted without being physically present, upending more than 200 years of precedent. “In the 231-year existence of the United States Congress, neither the House of Representatives nor the Senate has ever permitted a member to vote by proxy from the floor of the chamber,” the lawsuit opens.

Newly unsealed court documents show that top executives at Planned Parenthood were familiar with its organ-harvesting operations and privately discussed lucrative deals even as the abortion giant publicly denied profiting from the sale of body parts obtained from aborted babies. A video from the Center for Medical Progress, founded by undercover pro-life journalist David Daleiden, compiles testimonies from Planned Parenthood representatives who admit to planning to sell fetal organs, alongside documents showing the organization profited from selling the tissue. Selling fetal tissue for profit is illegal under federal law, although it is unclear how much companies can charge for shipping and handling the tissue.

More than a decade into their fame, the Kardashian-Jenners tend to induce eye rolls and sighs among jaded media consumers. But when it comes to their wealth, even critics of reality TV’s first family are intrigued; the Kardashian-Jenner machine—and the cash it generates—has been the subject of articles, podcasts, even books. But no one cares more about the topic than the family itself, which has spent years fighting Forbes for higher spots on our annual wealth and celebrity earnings lists. So when the youngest of the clan, Kylie Jenner, sold 51% of her Kylie Cosmetics to beauty giant Coty in a deal

T he tragic death of George Floyd on May 25 in Minneapolis has set off massive protests in the city and elsewhere. The protesters point to a video in which a police officer uses his knee to restrain Floyd, applying pressure to his neck for several minutes, as Floyd protests that he can’t breathe. This will remind any politically aware person of the death of Eric Garner in New York City in 2014. While New York City waited five years before firing the police officer in the Garner case, Minneapolis moved more swiftly, firing all four officers who were responsible for detaining Floyd the next day. Soon after the firings, protesters

The IRS estimates that nearly 5 million unopened paper tax returns had piled up at the agency by mid-May amid the closure of its offices nationwide due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report that POLITICO has obtained. Overall, the IRS estimated it had a backlog of 10 million pieces of mail to open and process as thousands of workers begin returning to the offices on Monday. In addition to tax returns, the unopened mail includes taxpayer correspondence, information returns and payments, according to the report. Through May 22, the agency had processed 120 million returns, down 14 percent from the same point in 2019, when the filing deadline was April 15.

“The torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans,” President John F. Kennedy said at his inaugural in 1961. Today, this generation is passing that torch to invite a new generation of barbarians to burn and loot and pillage, not serve and protect. The modern urban mayor is epitomized by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who has chosen not to crack down on the barbarians torching his city, but encourages them to keep the flames hot because “The symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life.” That laughable, sophomoric statement isn’t going to save anyone or any structure. That building is not a “symbol.”

Democratic and Republican officials on Sunday took aim at groups like Antifa and Boogaloo as well as demonstrators from out of town as responsible for violent episodes at protests in major cities across the country. President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.

We need leadership, Wolf, that is interested in our common humanity, in treating all Americans as if they count and belong equally.
