Mika Brezinski apologizes for shaming survivors of her friend Mark Halperin’s sexual assaults

Published

on

The co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program apologized for calling out the survivors of Mark Halperin’s sexual assaults for their unwillingness to interact with him face-to-face late Friday after her comments on-air that morning sparked a harsh response from 10 of her friend’s targets.

“In our discussion about sexual harassment this morning, I said some things that hurt people,” said Mika Brezinski, who started on the program as the news reader, when the show debuted in 2007, but eventually became the show’s co-host with former Florida congressman C. Joseph “Joe” Scarborough.

Brezinski divorced her husband of 22 years in 2016 and married Scarborough in 2017.

Halperin was a regular on the program. When women started coming forward in the last days of October about his sexual misconduct, he was easily one of the top political reporters in the country, a spot he had held for the previous decade–having successful stints at Bloomberg, ABC News and bestselling books about the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. His romantic novel, Paris in Past Tense,” was released Oct. 3.

“In the case of Mark, my goal today was to start a conversation about hearing from the men whenever we can, but I realize that it is not my place,” she said.

“It isn’t my call to make, and for that I am truly sorry,” said the daughter of Zbigniew Brezinski, President James E. Carter’s national security advisor. “As a victim of sexual assault, I understand that each individual’s case is different.”

In her commentary in the morning, Brezinski said she was reaching disgusted with Halperin’s victims ignoring her attempts to patch things up:

Some men who are willing to face the music, who are willing to face the facts, who are willing to admit to their actions 10, 20 years ago, even five years ago. Mark Halperin is more than willing to meet with his accusers and apologize with them face-to-face. I’ve actually tried to offer him to them. They don’t want to talk to him. They don’t want to talk to him. There are some — there are some hypocrisies here.

The mother of two daughters seemed to realize she had crossed the line when she said: “I know I said something incredibly, what’s the word? Explosive.”

Her husband did not seem to think it was a problem, when she suggested her words were explosive, Scarborough offered instead: “Truthful? Truthful.”

Sensing that her husband was giving her cover she also weighed in on the groping scandal that will soon send Sen. Alan S. Franken (D.-Minn.) back to private life. “I’m not sure what we’re doing here, I really don’t know–and what happened with Al Franken? Doesn’t feel right. It feels political.”

Before NBC released Brezinski’s apology, 10 victims of Halperin including Dianna Pierce Burgess, Katie GlennDianna MayElla Spektor McManusEmily Miller and Lara Setrakian rebuked the Williams College graduate and former Hartford, Connecticut TV reporter:

“As journalists and as victims of sexual assault we vehemently disagree with Mika Brzezinski’s inappropriate comments on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today.

Ms. Brzezinski suggested that women who were assaulted by Mark Halperin owe him an opportunity to meet with him in person so that he can ‘apologize face-to-face.’ Sexual harassment and assault is illegal in the workplace and represents a violation of the policies and standards of NBC News. It is an unethical and harmful request to ask that sexual assault victims confront their accusers in person.

Ms. Brzezinski pointed out that Mark Halperin should have a chance to “validate the truth.” If Mr. Halperin feels genuine remorse and wants to apologize, or otherwise try to repair the substantial damage he has done he can do so in the public domain, through the full acknowledgement of his wrongdoing and an honest account of his departure from ABC News.

To unveil Mr. Halperin’s transgressions over three decades required the hard work and professionalism of the same press that holds politicians and world leaders to account. Each one of the cases that have surfaced in the press has been fact-checked and backed up by contemporaneous sources.

We would ask for Ms. Brzezinski for higher standards of editorial judgment, compassion and human decency.

Ms. Brezinski and her cohost, Joe Scarborough, have a long-standing personal friendship with Mark Halperin which appears to be shaping their position on his case.

MSNBC’s air time should not be used as a platform for the one-sided rehabilitation of Mr. Halperin’s reputation or career.

Through his well-documented actions Mr. Halperin has demonstrated that he is unfit for the senior roles he held in our profession and in the public discourse.

We applaud NBC’s decision to terminate its professional relationship with him as a result.”

One of Mark Halperin’s victims, reporter and author Emily Miller, Tweeted:

In the end, Brezinski said she was going back to her day job: “This is up to the victims, some of whom I’ve been in contact with. My hope is for all of us to come together to support the brave women who speak out and help make workplaces safer as we continue this difficult conversation in the months and years ahead.”

EXPOSED: City of Seattle Forces White Employees to Undergo Marxist Re-Education Training

This is creepy racist stuff from the Left.

Published

on

Journalist Christopher F. Rufo of City Journal has retrieved documents showing the Marxist re-education training that white government employees in the city of Seattle were forced to attend.

Core American concepts such as “objectivity” and “individualism” were classified as “internalized racial superiority” and demonized during the training.

White employees were told to accept an increased possibility for physical harm, a willingness to lose all control, and a potential loss of employment as a way of “undoing” their whiteness.

They produced additional propaganda in order to further convince the white employees to hate themselves for their skin color.

The white employees were instructed to alienate friends and family while belligerently proselytizing their new dogma, a tactic regularly used by cults on their new victims.

Rufo is pushing to get the videos of the diversity training from the city in order to figure out which individuals and groups were paid with taxpayer money to administer the marxist re-education:

Seattle has sunk into anarchy and chaos because of its left-wing politicaly leadership, Big League Politics has reported.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan initially celebrated CHAZ/CHOP, the former autonomous zone that descended into mayhem amidst countless allegations of rape, murder and assault, in an attempt to stick it to President Donald Trump:

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has come out explicitly in favor of the far-left Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), rebuking President Donald Trump for coming out against the lawless collective.

“Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society and provide true equity for communities of color is not terrorism – it is patriotism,” Durkan wrote in a tweet.

“The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone #CHAZ is not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection – it is a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world. Given his track record, it’s not hard to believe that Trump is wrong, yet again,” she wrote in a subsequent Tweet.

She continued on for many more tweets, making every excuse she could muster for the lawless anarchistic protesters who have seized several blocks of the city and defaced the abandoned police station located therein.

“Seattle is passionate, we demand justice, and I believe we will be at the forefront of true, meaningful change. Nothing will distract our city from the work that needs to be done,” Durkan wrote.

“I remain committed to working with community, including the organizers currently on Capitol Hill, to re-imagine how we do things as a city, and what investments in public health, safety, and economic justice look like,” she added.

The marxists now dominate institutional power across the former land of the free, particularly in liberal areas like Seattle. The result could mean the death of America and by proxy Western Civilization.
