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

Posted on 07/08/2014 3:15:26 PM PDT by equalator

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.

Or as my dad would say, “liberal chicks are for practice, but you marry a good conservative woman.” and it worked.

Can’t blame them on that count. After all, they cannot harvest organs from dead people, you have to still be alive for that operation to work. Of course, you won’t survive that operation.

You forgot a high likelihood of having contracted at least but probably several stds. I have known of married, liberal men who went after the easy liberal women and ended up bringing chlamydia or something else home to their wife.

The stories did not have happy endings.

She practices that face in front of a mirror.

No, really. They all do.

I find thinking about that when I talk with them provides the perfect amount of smile on my side to undermine their pretense. And for the ones who then dig in... game on.

These are not nice people. Getting you to think otherwise is well over half of their game. For many of them, it is all of their game.

They make hyenas look dainty.

True story. Back in the day....

I had an acquaintance who, to put it bluntly, would screw large hole in a small tree. Or a small hole in a large tree. But I digress...Anyway. He gave his fiance an STD. She thought he hung the moon. Sweet girl, kinda plain, good chick. Really. So, when he found out what he had he immediately jumped on her for “giving him a disease”. Everyone knows a good defense is a great offense. She was kinda naive and figured she must have gotten it off a toilet seat. Or something.

So, my point is. Men are pigs. At least a good percentage.

I'd screw her brains out. Probably regret it later. Or not....

I may be wrong but I'm fairly sure they wait until you're dead before they slice em' out.

Most of the time. But if the organ donation truck gets there before the ambulance in NYC, don’t count on it.

That's how it works in Liberal Land. Give her a few more years to stew over this, not just the reaction to the tweet, but the frustration that led to it. She will eventually, perhaps, start to get that uneasy feeling that all cultures do not operate the same, and that some cultural norms are not particularly conducive to success.

She might eventually realize that while "all cultures are equal, yes, totally, totally equal, they are like SO equal, OMG, so incredibly equal..." it may turn out that "equal" doesn't mean what you thought it did. Anymore.
