[VIDEO] ‘White Supremacist’ Cops Hop Out of Patrol Car and… Join Kids’ Football Game

It’s usually a really bad sign when a police car pulls up and two cops jump out and head towards you.

KARE 11 viewer Michelle Keenan thought that was the case Monday night when a Plymouth squad car pulled up to her apartment complex, two officers got out and began walking towards her son and his friends who were playing football on the lawn.

Her heart started racing as she watched from the balcony. “What’d they do?”, Keenan thought to herself.

“It’s a good feeling to know that we live in a community where police officers are willing to do this and be there for us.”

— Michelle Keenan

She was about to run down and investigate when she saw Officers Matt Kaley and Mike Passig each join one of the teams and start playing. Keenan says the game lasted for 20 to 25 minutes, and her son later told her it was the coolest thing ever.

“Just a friendly game of football, and the kids loved it.”

— Officer Matt Kaley

“It’s a good feeling to know that we live in a community where police officers are willing to do this and be there for us,” said Keenan, who thought the story was a good one in light of the negative attention police have received lately. As a parent, she tells KARE 11 that she appreciates what the officers did, building trust with the kids and creating a memory they will always remember. Read the rest of this entry »

Liberal Mansplaining and Double Standards: The Reckless Misandry of Jonathan Chait

tff1

“Fashion tends to attract girls suffering from estrogen poisoning.”

Imagine a magazine article about soccer, golf, cosmetics, art, literature, tennis, finance, or…well, let’s say fashion, that included a phrase suggesting women’s interest in it was related to “estrogen poisoning”.

liberals-in-shock-590

Unthinkable. Ghastly. Unforgivable. There would be an immediate call for its author to be fired. An immediate, prolonged Twitter riot, a festival of shaming. The author’s name and home address would be leaked, the author would get death threats. Demonstrations in front of the magazine’s offices would begin. Calls by celebrities, business leaders, fashion editors, newsmakers, politicians, and perhaps even the president of the united states, for the publisher of the magazine to step down, publicly apologize, or both. Advertisers would flee. It would be the hot topic on news programs and talk shows for days, and days.

But write an article that includes a phrase like that in a New York magazine, in reference to boys, about sports? No problem. Here’s the actual quote:

@Glowimages 42-16987678.

“Football tends to attract boys suffering from testosterone poisoning.”

I kid you not. I looked for evidence he was being ironic, self-aware, or humorous. Not there. Dude is serious. As most of us have heard it, when said by women, it’s tongue-in-cheek, a shot at male obsessions, like cars, or cigars, or boats, not exclusively about sports. Or, in an unguarded situation, when no men are in the room, I imagine, more at liberty to be frank, hostile and demeaning. Free to refer to the normal condition of being male as “poisoned”.

Since when do men say this? About boys?

Perhaps after years of exposure to it, Chait internalized the phrase, detached from any resemblance to humor or playful overstatement. Is this how liberals talk to other liberals? With a straight face?

Courtesy of Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine readers can endure a lecture by an insulting, sanctimonious, sexist, long-winded liberal, aimed at other misguided liberals, about sports. He thinks you don’t understand football. And he’s here to mansplain’ things.

Wait, there’s more. Imagine, if you will, a sentence like this in a respected New York magazine:

“Interior design channels girls’ misandristic hysteria into supervised forms, shapes them within boundaries, and gives them positive meaning. These virtues, like those often attributed to the fashion industry, can feel like clichés imported from an earlier era.”

Think I’m exaggerating? Here’s Chait’s actual sentence:

football-boys

“Football channels boys’ chauvinistic belligerence into supervised forms, shapes them within boundaries, and gives them positive meaning. These virtues, like those often attributed to the military, can feel like clichés imported from an earlier era.”

There are other choice quotes, but you can read the whole spectacle here. But readers should know, the author a male. He is uneasy. And he wants you to know it.

Super Bowl 2014: Riot Police Restore Order in Seattle After Seahawks Win

SEATTLE- Seahawks blowout update: Breitbart.com has a few more Twitter photos. Here’s just a few. Note: The report, and headline, is overstated. Seattle didn’t dissolve into violence and chaos, the city had relatively minor disruption, few arrests, negligible property damage, considering it’s Seattle’s first Super Bowl win, ever, the festivities were well contained. Breitbart News reports:

After the Seattle Seahawks won their first Super Bowl in franchise history on Sunday, fans in Seattle jumped on cars, took over intersections, torched couches, and riot police had to be brought in to restore order.

Here are some images of the “celebrations” from Twitter:
