Yes, 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 particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner… the envelope please…
BuzzFeed Editor Rachel Zarrow!!
The Noisy Room: My nomination for Weasel of the Week goes to BuzzFeed editor Rachel Zarrell this time around. She posted a couple of tweets rejoicing at the news of the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and then tried to cover it up. She then quickly deleted them. She also retweeted a GQ writer who wrote, “Boy is my Twitter feed not sad.” Her initial tweet consisted of a party popper emoji. Then she followed up with a tweet mocking the statement put out by Sen. Ted Cruz on the news of Scalia’s death.
She did not apologize after deleting the tweets or even acknowledge she had posted them. This is the same twit who made pro-gun control tweets after the Lafayette theater shooting. “Let’s just give everyone guns, right? It’s in the goddamn constitution,” she tweeted at the time, adding, “Don’t pray. Push for gun control.” Following the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage, she also let her personal thoughts be known, tweeting a profanity-laced message for county clerks who didn’t wish to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The woman is an unmitigated liberal troll and an opportunistic weasel. BuzzFeed has a written policy against pulling these kind of stunts. She should be fired for this. But she’ll keep on hatin’ and for that she should get the Golden Weasel.
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.
