ANP hasn't done a "snowflake" edition in a while and after seeing some of the antics over the past few weeks, it appears it is time to highlight some over-the-top unhinged meltdowns we have recently come across.
In what has to rank right up there with some of the worse meltdowns seen, live on public television, CNN's counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd, went completely berserk on political commentator Paris Dennard after Dennard explained how security clearances are not a right, they are privilege and just because something is considered a "norm" doesn't make it a law.
Then Dennard dared point out how having a security clearance after leaving a government position is profitable, by stating "A lot of these people that have these security clearances, and this is the secret in the swampy Washington, D.C., they have them and they keep them because it's profitable for them after they leave government, because if you a security clearance, especially high level security clearance, your contracts and consulting gig pay you a lot more money because of the access that you have. I hope the president continues to do this, and I hope he adds Omarosa to the list, because if she has a clearance, she too because of her actions should have it revoked."
When Jim Sciutto, who was substitute hosting for Anderson Cooper, asked Mudd to weigh in, his hostility was clear from the beginning, snarkily asking Dennard "Profitable, Paris? When I am required to sit on an advisory board, let me ask you one question, how much do you think I'm paid to do that at the request of the U.S. government? Give me one answer, and you've got 10 seconds? How much?"
Dennard countered with a question of his own, asking "I'll ask you a question. How much are you paid for your contracting gig?"
Dennard is clearly referring to contracting gigs like Mudd's CNN position as a counterterrorism analyst and later clarifies that he talking about private sector work, with Mudd continuously trying to deflect by bringing up consulting with "U.S. government" connected work.
The show went off the rails from there: Transcript via NewsBusters.
MUDD: ANSWER THE QUESTION!!! I have no contracts with the U.S. government that pay money. Zero.
DENNARD: I'm not talking about your role with the federal government. I'm talking about...
MUDD: Oh, who are you talking about? Are you talking General Hayden?
DENNARD: Consultant and a contractor, the consulting firms that they form and you all get is because you get more money when having a consultant -- for having the security clearance. Stop acting like that doesn't happen.
MUDD: That is incorrect. I have zero consulting relationships with the U.S. government. Zero.
DENNARD: I'm not talking -- Phil, that's a good talking point. I'm not talking about relationship with the government. I'm talking about in the private sector. When you a security clearance...
MUDD: I have zero relationships with the private sector that involve my security clearance. Zero. Zero. I get zero dollars from consulting companies that deal with the U.S. government. Are we clear?
DENNARD: Well, he will be clear in saying that everybody in Washington, D.C. knows -- if you don't want to be honest about it, that's on you -- but if you have a security clearance and you keep it, you get more money to have it.
MUDD: We're done. We're done. GET OUT!!!
DENNARD: It's not your show. I'm staying right here. Don't be so defensive about this.
MUDD: GET OUT!!!
DENNARD: Don't be so defensive about this. Your voice is still here. You can still do whatever you want. But the politicalization of the intelligence community under this administration with the people coming on here every day tweeting and talking about this administration, you all have made it about politics, not the president.
While the transcript gives the flavor of the conversation, there is truly no way to adequately describe just how unhinged Mudd became without listening.
PERPETUALLY OFFENDED 'FEMINISTS' FREAK OUT OVER QUOTE ON SCHOOL WALL
Above is simple quote that was written on a wall at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School in Houston, which was called "misogynistic" by Dallas News, in a story which was shared by a Twitter user with the message "This is the wall at Gregory-Lincoln Middle School in Houston ISD. It's perpetuating horrible gender stereotypes, shaming women, and relinquishing boys of all responsibility. It's sexist, mysogonistic[sic], and discriminatory! I'm horrified."
Cue the outrage by male and female feminist snowflakes.
A man using the handle Yoni: "OMFG!!!! Is this a public school? And if so, why hasn't some parent, or a group of students, raised holy living hell? This is disgusting! If my daughter went to this school & I saw this, she wouldn't be there for long."
A woman that calls herself nyslady joins in with "This is bullsh*t! Gregory-Lincoln Middle, wtf??? (My creds: I effing taught middle school students in public school, grade 8 for 10 years, grade 6 for 20 years.) My advice: STOP enabling THE PATRIARCHY! Among like a hundred other things!"
As shown by Twitchy, some non-feminist users attempted to brings a little common sense into the discussion thread, explaining the quote is in no way misogynistic, which of course fell on deaf ears, although one is the perfect response, as user Victor rightly points out "Conversely, the more you act like a trashy ho, the more he'll treat you like a trashy ho. Heaven forfend teenagers learn this."
The school folded fast by removing the quote.
MAGA HAT TRIGGERS POLL WORKER
Moving along we see that earlier in August a Missouri poll worker became triggered when a Republican voter showed up to vote at a Kansas City, North, in a MAGA hat, that she refused to let him vote as long as he was wearing his hat. The man, accused of becoming belligerent over her refusal was escorted out by police. The man then called Secretary of State’s Office, who told him he broke no voting law. As long as he was not promoting a specific candidate that was on ballot (which President Trump is not), he could wear his political apparel.
Missouri law makes it a misdemeanor to wear political apparel withing 25 feet of a polling location when it pertains to a specific candidate or issue on the ballot.>
The man in the MAGA hat planned to return to the polling location to cast his vote, Ellison said at about 3:30 p.m.
The level of animosity shown to supporters of president Trump when out on the street, or from businesses or just random snowflakes that literally cannot handle seeing anything that is related to MAGA support, is truly unprecedented, and as I have maintained in the past and will reiterate, it is increasing in direct relation to the media's increased hostility toward Trump supporters.
CNN SNOWFLAKES COMPLAIN BITTERLY ABOUT BEING 'DOXXED'
Doxxing is when some reveals the private information of others. Recently ANP reported how CNN, along with multiple other liberal news outlets attempted to get the Judge in the Manafort trial to unseal the names and addresses of the jury, which is still in the deliberative phase. This request came as jurors sent a question back to the judge asking for the definition of "reasonable doubt."
Some accused CNN and the other outlets of attempting to intimidate the jury into coming back with a guilty verdict with that request because CNN and the others might Dox them, reveal their names and addresses publicly.
This is not an unreasonable concern as CNN has been engulfed in previous scandals where they revealed the home address and name of a woman, as they accosted her outside of her home. Prior to that CNN had threatened to expose a random internet user over a GIF image he created to which President Trump shared, saying the reserved the right to "publish his identity," if he displayed "ugly behavior" online in the future.
Other examples of CNN leading mob campaigns against their political enemies can be found at Breitbart.
Given their history of doxxing, and inciting violence against conservatives, it was amusing to see their response to the suggestion if CNN employees were to be treated as they treat others it would be a matter of "what's good for the goose..."
It began with Nick Short with Securities Study Group sharing a Politico article titled "Manafort trial Day 14: Jury 'scared' as it heads home without a verdict," with the message "Congrats @CNN & MSM for intimidating a jury." Short followed up by stating "When do the folks at CNN get doxxed? What’s good for the goose..."
CNN's senior reporter, Oliver Darcy, the same man who has the creepy obsession with wiping Alex Jones and InfoWars off of all big tech platforms across the internet, got triggered!!!!
"Verified conservative think tanker appearing to cheer on the doxxing of CNN employees. Really disgusting," tweets Darcy.
Amidst that back and forth between Darcy and other users, another CNN reporter, Andrew Kaczynski, the same man who wrote the story on how they hunted down the GIF maker that offended them, then threatened to expose his identity if his "ugly behavior" was continued, is busy whining and reporting Twitter accounts to Twitter because "people began tweeting out addresses and phone numbers associated with me."
Once again Twitchy shows the response of users not exactly sympathetic to employees of an outlet that had made a practice of doxxing others.
Some of those responses to Kaczynski include one user telling him "CNN went to an old lady's house and harassed her about posting memes on facebook. If you don't like these new rules... well, maybe you should have thought about that before you made them, huh? Take responsibility for yourself. You're not a victim. You're the damn perpetrator."
Looks like CNN does not enjoy when the shoe is on the other foot.
Snowflakism is alive and well across America where the perpetually offended media, liberals and feminists are outraged on a daily basis.
