The Week That Perished

ASIAN BROADCASTER NAMED ROBERT LEE DROPPED FROM ANNOUNCING U. OF VIRGINIA FOOTBALL GAME
Because everyone of sound mind and body knows that it was an inanimate statue of a dead Confederate general that caused the bloodshed in Charlottesville, VA, earlier this month, sports network ESPN decided to pull announcer Robert Lee from a September 2 football game between the University of Virginia and William & Mary. According to an ESPN statement:

We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name….In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play-by-play for a football game has become an issue.

As it turns out, Robert Lee is Asian. Therefore, his name is pronounced “Lobbert Ree,” so what’s with all the fuss?

MAKE WAY FOR TRANSGENDER TOBOGGANISTS
The International Olympic Committee has announced that transgender athletes will be able to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics, meaning that South Korea’s Olympic ski slopes and skating rinks will be glutted with dudes who think they’re chicks stealing gold and silver medals from chicks who identify with “the gender they were assigned at birth,” which is a very clunky way of saying, “their gender.” We wait with bated breath to see who will win the Male-to-Female Luge Contest and the Cross-Country Skiing For Cross-Dressers Competition.

MUSLIM MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT TELLS ROTHERHAM ABUSE VICTIMS TO “SHUT UP”
England’s Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal is one of the most egregious examples of the Global Leftist Ministry of Truth’s tendency to allow for any atrocity, no matter how ghastly, so long as the perpetrators are from a designated victim group and the victims are from a designated perpetrator group. From 1997-2013, an estimated 1,400 indigenous British girls aged 11-15 were raped and tortured and brutalized and terrorized by Muslims of Pakistani origin. Police ignored countless complaints for fear of being called “racist,” which is apparently worse now than actually being a rapist.

Now comes news that a female Labour MP named Naz Shah—ethnically a Pakistani, nominally an Englishwoman—approved of a comment on Twitter that “abused girls in Rotherham” should “shut their mouths for the good of diversity.” After a backlash, a spokesman for Shah said the Tweet was a “genuine mistake. 

Was it as genuine a mistake as importing countless Pakistanis to Britain in the first place?
