Slutbags: This Is What Democrats Truly Think About Women – Weiner Style

Oh, the things Democrats say when they think they are off the record! I suppose it doesn’t matter if they are on or off record, because when a Democrat says something nasty the mainstreamers will leave it off.

Thank goodness for alternative media.

Olivia Nuzzi is a young Fordham University student who recently started cutting her teeth writing in the same paper I wrote for, the triCityNews in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

She is smart, aware, and a terrific writer. She leans left, which is too bad because with her looks she’d already be hosting several shows on Fox News if she leaned right.

Olivia answered an ad and landed a job as an intern with Anthony Weiner’s campaign. That’s no way for a young lady to spend her summer vacation.   Turns out young ladies agree.

Olivia left the campaign and penned an article for the website NSFW wherein she recounted a story of how Anthony Weiner called each of the women interns “Monica,” which is quite a tell  considering his wife’s connection to Hillary Clinton.

Speaking of that, Olivia also stated that the interns are only there to get close to Weiner’s wife Huma in hopes of interning for Hillary in 2016. She also noted the “short resumes” of the Weiner campaign staff.

Daily-News-Nuzzi.jpgOlivia’s story of Weiner’s palace intrigue struck the fancy of the New York Daily News, who in turn put her story on the front page. The Daily News being a tabloid, I’m sure the enormous photo of Olivia is an editorial decision regarding the content of the story and in no way has anything to do with Nuzzi’s appearance.

The tattling by the former intern didn’t sit well with Weiner’s communications director, Barbara Morgan (who — and you aren’t going to believe this after you read what she said — was once the communications director for the New Jersey Department of Education).

The website Talking Points Memo reported that Morgan called the young college intern a…well I can’t write it because of Ricochet’s code of conduct. Actually I couldn’t write those things even without a code of conduct.

You’ll have to read it yourself. Put the youngsters in another room and click the link, then behold the language of the left toward women. Oh my!

Instead of issuing a hate-filled retort, Nuzzi hilariously adopted the adjectives as the byline of her Twitter page.

Morgan later issued an apology, so I suppose that’s the end of this story for the mainstreamers. If a Republican said this, Reince Priebus would forever be forced to respond to the question, “Why does the Republican Party still maintain these ideas about women?”

I did see a link to the story on NBC. It was headlined, “Weiner campaign comes out swinging” and the first line was that the campaign “will not back down from a fight.” I can only assume NBC approves.

Good grief.

    Thanks for the post. 

    I read a bit about this. As far as what Nuzzi wrote– about people only joining the campaign to get close to Huma– that seemed to me to just be how politics are played. It’s a game of moving up the ladder and getting closer to the powerful people. Perhaps it’s an indictment on Weiner’s campaign, but most of these young people are just trying to get another name they can drop, so it is more an indictment on politics.

    As far as the language Morgan used– I think the language was profane, but I wouldn’t call it a “War on Women” thing. Morgan was angry and unfortunately these days profanity is the rule rather than exception. When everything is “f* this or f* that” you have to become even more “creative” to express disapproval. I think it is a shame, but that’s just the way the world seems to be.

    That Weiner mis-remembered aides names is just a poor mark on him as a politician, but then I’m not good at names. But then, I’m not trying to be mayor…

    Regarding the need to up the shock value of speech, I would believe that. Isn’t the use of swearing or cathartic release about getting a reaction? Gratuitous use of the big words make them lose value.  Morgan is a woman, so basically I would conclude that failing to toe the line is the point, as some of us have said, feminism is leftism.

    I have also read/heard that those that use a lot of porn need more and more stimulation.

    Nothing is funnier than a democratic campaign imploding.  Ace of Spades had me cracking up last night on twitter. 

    As far as the language goes, I work construction so I am pretty used to salty language but if you are the COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR shouldn’t you maintain some level of professionalism even if you are “off the record” ??

    Thank you for posting this and thank Ms. Nuzzi for her fortitude in writing her piece. She may “tilt left” now, but give her time. She’s got the chops to start tilting right in no time.

    Perhaps it was, like, that time of the month.

    Aimee and I don’t even use this kind of language to describe Florida Gators and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.  Go Dawgs!

    Is it just me, or is a woman who signs a non-disclosure agreement and then proceeds to Tell All perhaps not the most reliable source of information?

    Olivia obviously forgot the Left’s first rule of feminism: The only way to be an independent, empowered woman is to do exactly what you’re told.

    The pretty intern’s yawn-worthy story is not the news here.  It’s the astonishing incoherent hate-filled rant from her former boss.  Had a man spoken like that he would not have worked again.

    Had a man spoken like that about a young woman, I’d hope that her father or brother would’ve beaten his …  Oftentimes, folks just don’t receive the beatings they so richly deserve.

    Morgan’s apology:

    “In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation . . . .”

    It appears she believes it was inappropriate language only because it turned out not to be an off-the-record conversation.  It doesn’t seem to occur to her that it is inappropriate language for any grownup at any time in any context.

    One gets the impression this is how the lovely Ms. Morgan usually talks when not on the record. And while it’s not surprising that this is the kind of person the amoral Weiner would want at his right hand (so to speak), can we at least pause a moment to behold once again the lovely consequences of feminism?

    Funny, but I don’t remember Helen Reddy singing “I’m a nasty, filthy-mouthed person, hear me roar.” Maybe I just wasn’t listening closely enough.

    Tommy De Seno: “Weiner campaign comes out swinging” 

    These puns are becoming tiresome.

    Ms Nuzzi will make a fine Fox News contributor, adding to the ranks of token Liberals.

    “If a Republican said this, Reince Priebus would forever be forced to respond to the question, ‘Why does the Republican Party still maintain these ideas about women?’”

    Exactly.

    Tommy De Seno: . . . .

    I did see a link to the story on NBC. It was headlined, “Weiner campaign comes out swinging”  . . .

     I believe that headline was originally titled “Weiner comes out swinging,” before some right-wing prude changed it.

  15. Astonishing

    Oops! Apparently there’s a quicker wit than me, or I guess it was just too obvious.

  16. Spin

    What I can glean from reading this is that my worst fears are confirmed:  things are exactly as they appear on House of Cards.  

    PS – I highlighted exactly only because Peter did earlier.  

  17. EThompson

    Intriguing post title. Really don’t need an update on the cover story of the Daily News; thanks all the same.

  18. WalkStar

    Does Nuzzi’s proud billboarding of these indelicate monikers remind anyone else of dear Andrew Breitbart’s reflexive retweets of his hate mongers? She’s definitely got what it takes to be a Tea Partier.

    I am compelled to add my thoughts only to give voice to my absolute astonishment at that woman’s behavior.  There is no excuse for the use of such words in any context.   Her use of them reveals much.  Her willingness to do so with a media outlet reveals even more.

    And she was spokesperson for the New Jersey Department of Education!
