In what is the perfect metaphor for political leftism, which complains about petty issues and accomplishes nothing, the incumbent Governor of New York and his challenger spent the entire day before this evening’s only public debate arguing over – of all things – the temperature of the debate room.
“Nixon’s team requested that the temperature in the room where the debate is being held at Hofstra University be set at 76 degrees,” CBS reported. “Cuomo is notorious for preferring an extremely cold environment during his public appearances.”
Former actress Cynthia Nixon is running against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in a clash of true titans. Both candidates are politically left of Stalin.
Nixon’s campaign adviser Rebecca Katz wrote an email to WCBS-TV, the station hosting the debate, saying that Cuomo was “notoriously sexist when it comes to temperature, so we just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here.”
This is not a satire piece. According to the Nixon campaign, it is a universally accepted fact that females prefer warmer temperatures, and those who do not oblige them are now “sexist.” Katz did not address the preferred room temperature among gender non-binary people (or any of the other 5o plus genders), surely a micro-aggression.
But Cuomo’s team fired back, assuring CNN that the his campaign made no temperature-related requests.
“Unlike Cynthia Nixon, the governor has more important things to focus on than the temperature of a room,” said campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith.
The fight escalated on Twitter.
“Captain recovering from attending debate prep in Team Nixon’s preferred temperature,” wrote Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo’s top aide, with an accompanying photo of Cuomo’s dog sitting on a pile of ice.

“Maybe you say 76 degrees and get 65 degrees instead of freezing at 50,” Nixon advisor L. Joy Williams shot back when a reporter mocked the entire situation.

CBS did not clarify what solution to campaigns reached on the temperature on the room, but did note that the debate was mostly a snooze.
“[n]either [candidate] landed a significant hit against their opponent,” according to the report.

SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
