The mainstream media has resorted to fat-shaming President Donald J. Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a column and cartoon that depicts the wife and mother in a 1930s fascist-style uniform.
I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description.
In a Los Angeles Times article titled, “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the right mouthpiece for a truth-twisting president,” writer David Horsey criticized Sanders’ appearance with lines such as: “looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games” or “rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes.”
In 2016, the LA Times devoted an entire article to the describing the awful feeling of shame that some amusement-park goers feel when they are too heavy to ride a roller coaster. How horrifying it must be to have to follow safety guidelines meant to protect thrill-seekers from being hurled off of the tilt-a-whirl.
That’s unacceptable, but apparently, it is completely in bounds to make fun of the press secretary for her weight.
Similarly, The New York Times’ Frank Bruni found it appropriate to mock Sanders’ southern accent.
“To listen to her pronounce ‘priorities’ is akin to hearing the air seep out of a flat tire, and she leaves half of the consonants on the curb,” he said.
The Times might re-evaluate it’s own priorities, considering that it buried this week’s bombshell revelation that the DNC rigged the 2016 primary in an article about Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic Woman of the Year Award at the Women’s Democratic National Club on Thursday.
It is the real takeaway that shaming is only out of bounds unless one is shaming Republicans.
Judge Dismisses Transgender Woman’s “Discrimination” Lawsuit Against Miss USA Pageant
Miss USA remains a pageant for biological females only.
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…”
