Meteorologist Accused of Racism for Slip Up Finds Newfound Support Online, Including Al Roker

Published

on

A meteorologist at WHEC, the NBC affiliate in Rochester, New York who was fired after an obvious flub of wording during a Friday telecast, is finding newfound support from sane people across the country.

Jeremy Kappell used the words “Martin Luther (coon) King Park,” when describing a park named after the civil rights leader on television Friday. It was an obvious slip – a combination of the words “King” and “Junior,” and he immediately corrected himself.

But after pressure from a leftist social media mob calling Kappell a racist and the Democratic mayor of Rochester, who is a black woman, calling for his termination, Kappell was fired from his post.

Note that Democrats do not have a problem with this word – just ask any black conservative how many times he or she has been slandered with the same slur – but they love power. Getting Kappell fired had nothing to do with alleged “racism.” The man is quite obviously not a racist. It was an exercise in seeing if they could influence the station into firing him. They succeeded.

But after a viral Facebook video explaining the situation to his fans, Kappell is receiving renewed support.

Al Roker, perhaps America’s most famous weatherman and co-host of “Today” on NBC – who also happens to be black – Tweeted his support for Kappell.

“I think made an unfortunate flub and should be given the chance to apologize on Anyone who has done live tv and screwed up (google any number of ones I’ve done) understands,” Roker said.

Others have pointed out that ESPN host Mike Greenberg made the same mistake on air almost a decade ago.

“ESPN’s Mike Greenberg still has his job – 9 years ago he made the exact same error. But today it’s much more advantageous to demand ruination of a mans life and livelihood,” said one Twitter user.

Others have noted that the network should have at least given Kappell the chance to apologize and explain himself on air before being fired.

A Change.Org petition to have Kappell reinstated has over 33,000 signatures and is quickly approaching its goal of 35,000.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security

The royal celebrities will foot the bill.

Published

on

President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.

The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.

Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.

When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.

The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
