NPR Blogger Hammered After What She Said About ‘Diverse Sources’ and ‘White Guys’
The Blaze ^ | 7-7-2014 | Zach Noble

NPR’s education team sent out a curious tweet Wednesday that prompted an online backlash.

“I reach out to diverse sources on deadline,” the tweet from @npr_ed said. “Only the white guys get back to me.” The tweet seemed uncharacteristic for NPR, an outlet that fired analyst Juan Williams after he made remarks about feeling “nervous” if he sees people dressed in “Muslim garb” on an airplane.Kamenetz said she had mistakenly sent the tweet from the NPR education account instead of her own and that she regretted it.

The only problem is that she would want to talk. Liberal chicks can ruin what could be a good time by doing that.

Come on, we all know that “diversity” means one black, one Asian, one Latino, one white woman and one gay all spewing the exact same liberal line on the program, followed by a heavily-edited clip of an Evil Straight White Man, accompanied by the Imperial March soundtrack from Star Wars, saying how much he hates the poor, women and minorities.

Yeah, talk about self-censorship. Forget what your ideological environment is for just a second, hit the "send" button, and you're toast.

It’s interesting that her “apology” was basically— “I’m sorry I tweeted this from the edu account and not my personal one.” That’s a hell of an apology.

Same thing for Howard University, et. al —the people who graduate from there, even the few who go on to become really loaded, don’t financially contribute to their alma mater.

It’s famous.

It’s super rich liberal Jews and delusional goyim who give to historically black colleges and keep them afloat.

Ditto for organ donation —Leroy keepin’ it real (and keeping his organs).

” Liberal chicks can ruin what could be a good time by doing that.”

Yes, but they are easy.

Combination of lack of religious principals, fundamental unhappiness, lack of critical thinking skills, and a belief that sex makes them liberated equates to a woman that is so simple to bed randomly it should be illegal.

She had to have some reality based thoughts to even notice the disparity without hitting herself.

The busy, hard-working people who are juggling a million things under their own deadlines -- they get back to her to meet her deadline.

And that's exactly how the world works.

And everybody knows it.

Sad, but true. The problem is, you feel dirty afterwards.
