Gowdy, Cummings open House Oversight probe in to USA Gymnastics sex scandal

Published

on

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Republicans and Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent a letter to Kerry Perry, the president and CEO of USA Gymnastics informing her that the committee has begun an investigation into the organization’s failure to protect young gymnasts from sexual assault.

 

“Sexual assault should never be tolerated, but when it does occur, it is imperative that swift and immediate action be taken to stop the abuse, prevent it from recurring, and address its effects,” said the Feb. 8 letter, signed by Chairman Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy III (R.-S.C.) and the ranking Democrat, Maryland’s Rep. Ellijah E. Cummings.

“One of the most disturbing aspects of the survivors’ accounts is how this reprehensible conduct went undetected or ignored for years,” the letter said. “Coaches, instructors, law enforcement, and other trusted adults all failed these young athletes.”

In January, the longtime USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to hundreds of years in prison for sexually assaulting and molesting young female gymnasts under the appalling pretense of medical care.

During the sentencing phase of the trial, 216 female gymnasts confronted the doctor and detailed for the court how Nassar violated them.

The letter told Perry that the committee was motivated by the failure of its systems and procedures.

“USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for the sport in the United States, is at the center of many of these failures,” the letter said.

“The Committee seeks to better understand USA Gymnastics’ responsibility to its gymnastics clubs and gyms, its policies and procedures on sexual assault, and the actions it plans to take in response to this pervasive sexual abuse within the sport,” the letter said.

The committee’s letter came a day after USA Gymnastics announced it was had created a fund to support Nassar’s victims.

“The National Gymnastics Foundation is hopeful that the newly established Athlete Assistance Fund will provide much-needed support for our incredible athletes who have had these devastating experiences,” said the foundation’s board of directors in their statement.

“This will help them get through some of the most difficult days of their lives. Our athletes are some of the most impressive young people in all the world. We respect and admire them greatly,” the foundation said. “To the absolute best of our ability, the entire gymnastics community is there for them.”

Black Supremacist Tariq “King Flex” Nasheed has History of Authoring Sexist Books

Published

on

A black supremacist and popular Twitter figure has a long and sordid history of writing books for the purpose of teaching men how to manipulate women into sex.

“The Art of Mackin’ is also the first book that tells men what to say, word for word, in order to get sex from women, guaranteed,” says the description of Nasheed’s book on Amazon, published in 2000. “By using my tried and proven methods of mackin’, men are guaranteed to increase their player ratio by at least fifty percent (50%).”

Confessedly, I have not read the books, and though I am sure they are scholarly and scientifically backed, I am not sure how the “player ratio” is measured.

“The Art of Mackin’ was the first how-to book that taught men how to actually become a true ladie’s [sic] man , and how to use certain techniques (not deceit) in order to get what they wanted from women,” the description continues. “Whether it is sex, money or companionship, this book teaches men what to say, verbatim, in order to reach their intended goal.”

Nasheed released a sequel to “The Art of Mackin'” in 2005 called “The Mack Within: The Holy Book of Game,” which teaches men “how to use ‘pimp game’ as a form of manipulation (not deceit) in order to get what they want from women,” and has a colorful review from The New York Times. 

“Nasheed breaks [the different types of women] down: there’s the Top-Notch Sista (‘when dealing with a top-notch sista, brothers have to really come correct’); the Middle Class Girl; The Hoodrat; and the Chickenhead (a classification Nasheed further splits up into the Low Budget and the Straight-Up Hoochie Chickenhead; to spot the latter, be on the lookout for gold teeth and lips that are ‘purple from smoking weed’).

The book has fantastic reviews, garnering a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

“Good book, should be in with the classics,” wrote reviewer Mark Carroll. “A must read and study for young men!! PLEASE TELL YOUR YOUNGER MEN.”

Unfortunately, it appears that Nasheed has put his illustrious literary career on hold, and has instead decided to make a career of calling everyone on Twitter a “white supremacist.”

Take the NRA for example:

“So Mariia Butina, the Russian citizen residing in D.C., was arrested yesterday, July 15, 2018, on charges of conspiracy to act as an agent of the Russian Federation within the United States,” he said. “She has ties to the white supremacist organization the NRA.

Or people who use the “okay” hand gesture:

“Here are another group of white supremacists called the Proud Boys throwing up the white nationalist gang sign” he said.

Or all Trump supporters:

“Trump is using his criticism of LaVar Ball as a dog whistle to trigger his white supremacist base,” Nahseed said. “Trump has to show that he can put “uppity negroes” in their place.”

Big League Politics reached out to Nasheed to ask if he considers himself to be a sexist, or if his views on coercing women into sex have changed.

“Define what sexist is,” Nasheed said.
