Ellie Kemper, star of “The Office” and “The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt,” broke under pressure from the Twitter mob and issued a groveling apology and a confession of her “white privilege” and made a donation to BLM.
And what was her heinous, racist crime? Someone found out that in 1999, when she was 19 years old, she participated in a beauty pageant that she didn’t know used to exclude blacks – a policy they did away with 20 years before she entered and a full year before she was even born. For this, she was vilified on Twitter, the cesspool of basement-dwelling “social justice warriors,” who branded her a “KKK princess.”
She made a serious strategic error in playing along with this. Now that they smell blood in the water, they’ll dig through everything she ever said and did, searching for more things they can twist to try to force more apologies from her, because apparently, their own lives are so empty, they have nothing better to do with their time than get jollies from bullying people.
I assume she must have thought she had to do this, since she works in Hollywood, the natural habitat of clueless rich leftists. (Don’t believe me? Check out Cher’s latest tweet, in which she furiously demands that the wrong Senator be driven from office for refusing to abolish the filibuster. As Jonah Goldberg notes, it's a perfect example of the yawning gap between liberals’ intensity of feelings and their actual knowledge of the issues: https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/454594/)
In a world in which Ms. Kemper didn’t fear being blacklisted over a false allegation, she would have told her attackers to get a life or ignored them. Or if she really never wanted to work in Hollywood again, she could have pointed out that every current member of the Democratic Party is supporting an organization with a shameful history of defending slavery, white supremacy, lynchings, the KKK and Jim Crow laws.

It is sad to hear of someone being bullied, pressured and coerced into apologizing for participating in something that excluded blacks when she wasn't armed with that information in the first place. This was not a purposeful act to participate in something excluding blacks or other races. Totally ridiculous!

I don't think I could have said this better - every current member of the Democratic Party is supporting an organization with a shameful history of defending slavery, white supremacy, lynchings, the KKK and Jim Crow laws.

If your grandfather murdered someone 100 years ago and proof of that is found today, could you be hung for that murder since your grandfather is no longer around?

I understand that no amount of reason and facts will convince the radical left that they are wrong but I don't understand why the moderate liberals are not appalled at the train wreck that is happening.

She probably didnt know they excluded blacks. I was in a beauty contest, and i didn't know if they excluded blacks.

" . . . more things they can twist to try to force more apologies from her, because apparently, their own lives are so empty, they have nothing better to do with their time than get jollies from bullying people."
“A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people’s business.”
“When people are ripe for a mass movement, they are usually ripe for any effective movement, and not solely for one with a particular doctrine or program. In pre-Hitlerian Germany it was often a toss up whether a restless youth would join the Communists or the Nazis.”
“The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready is he to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause.”
We're up against progressives whose religion is power; so is his holy cause.

We have taught our children for YEARS to NOT BULLY and to SPEAK OUT AGAINST ANY FORM OF BULLYING and to STAND UP FOR THE PERSON BEING BULLIED and to STOP THE PERSON DOING THE BULLYING.
NOW, we have ADULTS doing bullying against each other, against corporations, and against our children. WHAT, WHAT, WHAT has happened here??! And, why is ANYONE allowing this to happen???
It is so very wrong, as our children already had enough social/peer pressures, mind control going on from social media, AND 'normal' bullying going on throughout their young lives. NOW, ADULTS have put EVEN MORE on our children...when all they typically want to do is play, laugh, and have fun with others. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT SOMEONE'S SKIN COLOR OR FAMILY INCOME LEVEL!#!# It is ADULTS that put their depression and perceived oppression and 'woe is me' attitude on our children...the VERY VERY VULNERABLE and so very impressionable.
We MUST SAVE OUR CHILDREN as we have already been ASLEEP these last 15 years in letting one generation of children be lost; let's not lost any more of our children to this AWFUL EVIL they are faced with, which is being promoted by a WAY TO POWERFUL SCHOOL SYSTEM THAT IS NOT TEACHING OUR CHILDREN TO BE SUCCESSFUL!! That is why corporations have to hire workers from China and India and other countries who are STRICT in their teachings and get their children poised well for life. The U.S. should be STELLAR in the level of education of our kids and yet all the system does is produce MASSIVE DEBT for our children, without the high paying jobs that EVERY college graduate should have...and that wasn't good enough; now the education system wants to take our children's minds and bodies and beings....it is all DEPLORABLE!!!
