Washington Post local news columnist Petula Dvorak often plays the identity politics card in her items for the Metro section, seeing things like racism and sexism everywhere. And after a column boasting how it’s not the Nationals that unites The Swamp but a rabid hatred of President Trump, she used her spot in Friday’s print edition to suggest the champion Washington Mystics have been shafted with a delay in their parade until spring and the female football team D.C. Divas not having one at all.
Women aren’t having kids because of the president – according to one “motherhood clarity” therapist. On May 31, The Washington Post weighed in on the “child-free life” and “Why so many American women are deciding not to have kids.” Inside the piece, columnist Petula Dvorak outlined multiple reasons, including President Trump.
Two years ago, I noted The Washington Post couldn’t find any staffers or any space to cover the closing of Amethyst Health Center for Women, the abortion clinic near my home in Manassas, Virginia. And now, the Post again could not find space when this former abortion clinic was blessed by the local Catholic bishop Michael Burbidge as the new Mother of Mercy Free Clinic. To pro-lifers, it felt like a modern miracle, decades of prayer answered.
Washington Post Metro columnist Petula Dvorak lamented on Friday about “An abortion provider’s agonizing decision to quit.” Todd Stave agreed last month to sell his property to the Maryland Coalition for Life, “the antiabortion group that opened a crisis pregnancy center across the parking lot and staged frequent protests outside his door.” Dvorak couldn't accept pro-lifers claiming victory....and she again forwarded Stave's claim that his father's clinic (which he inherited) was firebombed in 1992, but there's no easily found evidence to back up that claim.
Media coverage of protests is so ideologically biased as to deceive the public. Tea Party protests were law-abiding, and so orderly that they usually left no trash behind (unlike the recent Women’s March in Washington, or attendees of the 2009 Obama inauguration, who left behind lots of trash).
Washington Post local columnist Petula Dvorak waded into the ginned-up fake news debate in her Tuesday column as she compared the false and unsubstantiated Pizzagate story to the “doctored” and “gotcha” videos that spawned the Planned Parenthood scandal and Sarah Palin causing then-Congresswoman Gabby Giffords to be shot in 2011 (even though the first case was real and the second was thoroughly debunked).
How do you review a hotel before it even opens? It's simple if you are an over the top liberal moonbat columnist who has a political grudge against the owner to extent you are perfectly willing to toss all credibility away in order to make strictly ideological points.
In this case it is Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak who panned Donald Trump's new Washington hotel opening today, the Trump International Hotel. Her column isn't so much as a review since it was written before the hotel even opened as it is one long hate screech against Trump:
Washington Post local columnist Petula Dvorak appears to have made it an firm habit of continually updating the life of a transgender child named Tyler for at least four years so she naturally returned to the child and his family on Tuesday to denounce the “hateful” and “mostly stupid” debate over transgender bathroom laws that they claim wasn’t started by the LGBT community.
Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak happily updated her three-year-old “Transgender at 5" front-page story, three years later. The headline was “Transgender at 8: Tyler remains certain he’s a boy as the world changes around him.”
Dvorak said when she first touted “Tyler,” it “was before Caitlyn Jenner landed on the cover of Vanity Fair. Before Laverne Cox became a star for her portrayal of a transgender inmate on Orange Is the New Black. Before the White House hired an openly transgender staffer.”
There had to be someone in the liberal media who looked at the Planned Parenthood sting video and decided it meant nothing. That it was all the Big Lie. Meet Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak.
Her Friday column in the paper was headlined “Planned Parenthood deserves to be supported, not attacked.” She dismissed the whole video as just another distasteful pro-life protest poster.
"Welcome to this century, Scouts," cheered liberal Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak in her January 29 column headlined "Boy Scouts can, belatedly, set an example of courage." Dvorak hailed the announcement on Monday by the National Council of the scouting organization that it would propose doing away with a national ban on openly gay members and leaders, instead allowing local chapters to set policy on the matter.
Hailing the "righteousness" of the move, Dvorak hailed how the Scouts had earned a "courage badge" for the move. In truth, however, the maneuver comes after intense lobbying by gay rights advocates that dried up previously reliable streams of corporate funding. Dvorak failed to mention this, but gay rights activists have been hard at work of late pushing corporate boardrooms from ending donations to the Boy Scouts of America. Thus far drug manufacturer Merck, computer process manufacturer Intel and parcel shipping giant UPS have ended their donations to the 102-year-old organization in large part due to petition drives by gay activists.
"Since when does serving up junk food give someone a license to preach?" carped Petula Dvorak as she opened her August 14 piece, "Now featuring filet o' fracas."* Gee, I dunno, Petula, maybe 1791, when the First Amendment -- you know, that pesky little document that guarantees freedom of speech and religion among other things -- was ratified.
"We've got the Papa John's pizza guys weighing in on the health-care debate, while the burger slingers out West at In-N-Out can't serve up a cheeseburger without a Bible verse," Dvorak carped. Later in her Metro section column, she essentially compared the pizza chain to drug-running terrorists.
