Washington Post Magazine humorist Gene Weingarten is only writing one column a week, and now he's out-sourcing it to ten of his liberal friends. Together, they produced the kind of "humor" that comes from people who are still sore that Hillary Clinton isn't president. The concept was this: If the Red Hen restaurant did not kick out Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, what should they have done to express their "antipathy to the Trump administration"? One suggested they kidnap their kids.
Washington Post humor columnist Gene Weingarten demonstrated how far that liberals will go to defend self-mutilation by transgenders. Troubled by a penis? Weingarten compared healthy, functional body parts to a child with a cleft palate: "This is fixable. Because a child is born with a cleft palate, it doesn't mean he needs to go through life with a cleft palate."
The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.
Washington Post Magazine humorist Gene Weingarten hasn’t been heavy on the Trump mockery this fall, but he picked the wrong theme on Sunday. Since the column deadline is three weeks in advance, Weingarten dared to write a “Trump gasped and withered away” column. Whoops.
Protests are usually designed as attention-grabbers, publicity-seeking events. But liberal reporters cannot be dragged to a conservative protest. Thursday’s “March for Marriage” was blown off by The Washington Post and The New York Times. Attendance too small? The Post has written 10,000 words glorifying three anti-nuke protesters. The Times thinks four illegal aliens hiking is a hot protest story.
Only pro-gay news is news. Friday’s Times led the National section with “Presbyterians Allow Same-Sex Marriages,” complete with happy color photo. Friday’s Post wrote a story previewing the Obama administration’s move to include same-sex couples in family-leave policies (updated version online).
Leftist author Joe McGinniss drew several more warm obituaries from the national media. In Wednesday’s Washington Post, on the front of the Style section Gene Weingarten began with a gush: “Joe McGinniss, author of one of the best nonfiction books ever written, died yesterday.”
NPR media reporter David Folkenflik filed an entire story on McGinniss (and it was no Harold Simmons hatchet job on political attack ads). Folkenflik went easy on the last slimy McGinniss book, his full-throttle, fact-challenged attack on Sarah Palin:
Signs it’s going to be a very tired week in the “humor” column of the Sunday Washington Post Magazine? When it starts with “Memo From: God. Re: Gay people.”
Post humorist Gene Weingarten is a godless man, so the idea that he can speak for God is for him like putting on a Bullwinkle the Moose costume. But there he goes, off to mock “Duck Dynasty” and Sarah Palin:
Washington Post Magazine humorist Gene Weingarten is a fairly routine basher of conservatives, but when he brings in his feminist friend Gina Barreca, he can end up looking like some kind of Giuliani moderate. Last year, Weingarten brought in Barreca to trash Mitt Romney after the election as a woman-hater, a "terrible, terrible date."
At the start of his "Chatological Humor" webchat last week, Weingarten brought in Barreca to trash an article by Emily Yoffe on Slate.com that suggested women should avoid getting drunk at frat parties The jaw drops at how this somehow brought Barreca to declare that frat parties are somehow the segregationist drugstore lunch-counters of the modern age. What? Yes (Emphasis mine):
Washington Post humorist Gene Weingarten has again demonstrated that he really cannot mock his hero Barack Obama. In his latest failed attempt on Sunday, he began with a throwaway line about Obama’s “Nixonian hissy fits against leakers and whistleblowers,” but his heart wasn’t in it.
Instead, he devoted the column to a crank e-mailer named Duane Steil, and how he passes along bizarre theories like Obama’s “secret gay history.” Gene knows that many anti-Obama conservatives don’t believe Obama secretly snorting cocaine and leading a secret gay life. He just dwells on who he wants to represent conservatives:
Gene Weingarten, the “humorist” for The Washington Post Magazine offered this weekend “Some free Bush-league humor to help increase the GOP’s youth appeal.”
Apparently, someone is counseling that the GOP doesn’t have to change their so-called “grumpy old-white-man positions,” they just have to talk with more humor and irony, which led Weingarted to offer “jokes” for conservatives. Such as:
Washington Post humorist Gene Weingarten -- a former editor of the newspaper's "Sunday Style" section -- is using his "humor" to pinch conservative "evil" again, this time in poetic form. On his weekly chat at washingtonpost.com, Weingarten's "Ode to Pure Evil" is about NRA chief Wayne LaPierre.
In case you don't want to read this entire attempt at rhyme, it ends with a saint shooting LaPierre in the crotch: "Methinks St. Peter will espy him, standing there / And smile, and aim a 30-30 at his scrotum." Did you know liberals wrote "hate poetry"? Here's how it was posted:
While The Washington Post found it highly newsworthy in a horrified way that Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli would compare abortion to slavery, their Sunday magazine humorist Gene Weingarten thought it was funny to suggest Republicans have a softer line on slavery then on tax hikes.
His column addressed the question "Are there subjects so controversial that you just can’t joke about them? I believe the answer is no. You just have to do it right." Like mock Republicans as savagely racist:
