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.
Massachusetts City Council Votes for Official Recognition of “Polyamorous” Relationships
Descending down the slippery slope.
The left-wing city council of Somerville, Massachusetts voted unanimously last week to recognize “polyamorous” relationships, enshrining intimate relationships between multiple people on a level equal to that of traditional heterosexual marriage.
Polyamory is a lifestyle that allows for amorphous and plural intimate sexual relationships between multiple people. It’s been compared to historical practices of polygamy in non-western and peripheral societies, although its advocates and adherents claim their lifestyle is distinct from the shunned and more controversial practice.
City Councilor Lance Davis explained his support for the resolution recognizing polyamory, stating that he “doesn’t feel it’s the place of government to define a family.” The recognition of the plural relationship practice may be the first of its kind from a governmental institution in the United States or modern-day western society.
Another city councilor who supporter recognizing polyamory, J.T. Scott, claimed that he knew at least two dozen polyamorous households throughout the city of Somerville.
The city ordinance will apply employment benefits to all partners of polyamorous relationships who could claim the benefits as a city employee’s spouse.
It appears likely to possible that the initial push in favor of polyamorous recognition will spiral into a newfound cultural struggle on the part of liberal ideologues, determined to enshrine a system similar in nature to medieval or Islamic polygamy within the legal confines of American society in the name of “progress” and “tolerance.”
