AP Deletes ‘Offensive’ Tweet to Please Leftists, Gets Bashed By Leftists Anyway

Published

on

The Associated Press learned the hard way Monday that it is impossible to please the angry grievance-mongers on the political left.

“We’ve removed an tweet from Oct. 21 that said a migrant caravan in Mexico was ‘like a ragtag army of the poor.’ That wording was poorly chosen and has been removed from our coverage of the caravan,” the news organization said.

In short, AP was shamed by the political left into deleting its prior coverage because the leftists found the words “offensive.” But the retraction did not deter the leftists, who will always find something to be outraged about.

“And then repeated [the wording] in our retraction. Just in case you missed it the first time,” said Twitter user Janet Johnson in response.

“Even ‘caravan’ feels to me you’re not looking at this from a purpose of the actions by a group of displaced individuals’ perspective but hey here we are,” said Twitter user Andriaan Bester.

This reporter has no idea what that sentence even means, other than that Bester does not like the word “caravan” being associated with the foreign invaders.

Speaking of “invaders” a Twitter user called “The Hoarse Whisperer” was displeased with AP’s wording.

“‘Hi, we made the suffering and underprivileged sound like invading militants and just in case you missed, here it is again.'” You’re class acts, AP. Class. Acts.”

These people must be a bundle of fun at parties.

Perhaps the AP has learned a lesson today. Bending a knee to social justice warriors never works. Why bother?

Judge Dismisses Transgender Woman’s “Discrimination” Lawsuit Against Miss USA Pageant

Miss USA remains a pageant for biological females only.

Published

Last Thursday a federal judge dismissed a transgender woman’s lawsuit that accused the Miss USA pageant of discrimination.

Anita Noelle Green is a biological male who claimed that “she” had a right to participate in the pageant’s competitions, but US District Judge Michael W. Mosman found that the law is not on “her” side.

Judge Mosman ruled that Miss United States of America LLC, a private corporation, cannot be forced to violate its mission of promoting “natural-born” females.

“I view it as an association that cannot under the Constitution be required to allow plaintiff to participate in what defendant says is a contradiction of that message,” he said.

Green competed in the 2018 Miss Montana pageant and won the 2019 Miss Earth Elite Oregon competition—but Miss USA denied “her” application. Green’s lawyer attempted to argue that the Miss USA corporation is predominately a commercial business that’s granted “minimal protection,” not a First Amendment-protected “expressive association.”

Judge Mosman, however, disagreed and found the pageant corporation to be a predominately expressive association, meaning that it is engaged in expressive activity and promotes a message.

In related news, Big League Politics recently covered Sen. Rand Paul’s confrontation with transgender HHS nominee Rachel Levine about “her” unwillingness to say that minors shouldn’t be bypassing their parents and making their own decisions about transitioning:

At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.

[…]

Levine’s response was as follows: “Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, and if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care…”
