Once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, the Golden Weasel!!
Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all disgusting, but the Council has spoken and we have our winner. The envelope please…
Yes, It’s Faux Black Person And Racial Grievance Monger Rachel Dolezal!!
The Razor: Should we just skip the submissions and go with Rachel Dolezal?
Especially after Smoking Gun is claiming she sued Howard U for discriminating against her for being white.
This puts her in whole new class of super-weasel in my book.
I’ve already had a few things to say about this weeks’ winner. One thing the age of Obama has brought to us on steroids is the age of the victim. Everyone, it seems, is now entitled to grievance points unless you’re white, Asian, Christian, Jewish, male, heterosexual or any combination thereof. As people like Rachel Dolezal discovered, there definitely is such a thing as black privilege and others besides her have figured that out and taken advantage of it.
And it’s not just blacks, either. I once had a client at a Fortune Five Hundred company with blond hair, blue eyes and a distinctly non-Hispanic name who benefited from a large corporation’s diversity and affirmative action diktats simply because she claimed to be Puerto Rican. No one ever asked for any proof. This woman had never been to Puerto Rico, had no discernible accent and was so non-Hispanic that she pronounced the Spanish word for chicken, pollo, like the game polo rather than correctly, and the name Jose as ‘Josie.’ Yet she was smart enough to realize that simply checking the right box was worth money and special treatment she had no reason to bother to earn.
Miss Dolezal made the same discovery and decided to make a career out of being a grievance monger. Now normally, I wouldn’t like to see someone like this get a Golden Weasel, because ultimately she failed. That was until I saw a number of responses on Twitter and elsewhere willing to give her honorary victim status as a black simply because she was down for the struggle, as it were. Which of course, is the kind of Weaselness we celebrate with this award.
Miss Donezal isn’t here to accept her Weasel, so I decided to hand it over to Ms. Toya Graham, of Baltimore, who you might remember seeing briefly interviewed on one of the news channels. She obviously has some strong feelings about people like Rachel Donezal whipping up a mob there to loot and burn and riot for ‘the cause.’
I have a feeling she might have a word or two to say to Rachel Donezal, don’t you? And I bet some of her neighbors do too.
Well, there it is!
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum and remember, every Wednesday the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council and the results are posted on Friday morning.
It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere and you won’t want to miss it… or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
