Keith Ogre-mann: Conde Nast-y's misogynist-in-chief



Posted August 30, 2017 07:49 AM by Michelle Malkin

Once a woman-hating blowhard, always a woman-hating blowhard.

Keith Olbermann, the "new" face of the Democratic resistance on Conde Nast's digital video platform, is the same old foul-mouthed beast he was on cable TV.

Over the weekend, the former MSNBC frother went berserk over Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's anodyne call for prayers "for all those in the path of #HurricaneHarvey" and her promise to "assist impacted schools."

"The hurricane is going to do less damage to schools than you are, Motherf---er," Olbermann snarled in response (and no, he did not use dashes in his unfiltered, uncensored tweet).

The Twitter Trust and Safety Council, established with much fanfare last year to promote tolerance, discourage bullies and ensure "people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter," was nowhere to be found.

Neither were the rest of the civility police who've been lamenting the dangerous climate of hate against all females purportedly fomented by President Trump.

Here's the thing: There are myriad reasons to criticize Betsy DeVos, whatever side of the political spectrum you occupy. Grass-roots education activists on the right, for example, wish the White House had chosen a proven warrior in the fight against Fed Ed instead of a well-heeled, establishment GOP donor who was for the Common Core racket in Michigan before she was against it. On the left, public education union bosses oppose DeVos's push for expansion of public charter schools and vouchers.

And at the intersection of left and right, informed parents fear DeVos represents the corporate education cronyism of both the Bush and Obama administrations that drove federal testing, technology, and curriculum programs.

But that's not Olbermann's beef. DeVos is a Republican. She's a woman. Therefore, she's subhuman and deserves his profane attacks.

History, like a one-trick Neanderthal egotist, repeats itself. Conde Nast-y's chief Trump-basher is a serial verbal abuser of outspoken conservative women. What's remarkable is how easily Olbermann cruised into his new role at Conde Nast as the progressive point person against Donald Trump, whom the resistance rage-bot calls "a man not in his right mind."

Let's talk about unhingedness.

Of TV commentator S.E. Cupp, Olbermann sniped: "(S)he's a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does."

Of lawyer and author Ann Coulter, he hurled this transphobic insult: "If this guy wants to live his life as a woman, I'm gonna back his choice up 100 percent."

And of yours truly, he railed against my "total mindless, morally bankrupt, knee-jerk, fascistic hatred, without which Michelle Malkin would just be a big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it."

Conde Nast, which has now sponsored two seasons of Olbermann's internet diatribes, has nothing to say about his lunatic hang-up with conservative women. Yet, the New York-based publishing conglomerate, which owns left-wing politics, fashion and culture magazines including GQ, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, Allure, Vogue and Teen Vogue, churns out endless, glossy pages assailing the Trump era's "manifest misogyny" and "unconscious, unending sexism."

And the company cashed in on inaugural protests with a "special edition" magazine (retail price: $13.99) titled, "Rise Up! The Women's Marches Around the World." One-sided narratives on the war on women sell.

So, who will be Olbermann's next GOP target of sexist slander? What innocent comment from a female Trump supporter or Cabinet member will prompt his next f-bomb-laden tirade?

I know this for sure: Whoever this toddler-brained bully fumes at ad feminam and ad nauseam, smug elites in the New York publishing world will shrug their Burberry scarf-wrapped shoulders and look the other way.

Pussy-hat hypocrisy means never having to say you're sorry for lifting up a worse ogre than the one you think you're bringing down.

I think Olbermann is a blowhard.  But I hardly think ANYONE on the right is in a position to talk about misogyny.  Unless, of course, they took this same moral high ground in November and chose not to cast their vote for a known misogynist.

Silly to paint half the country with those words and then insinuate only Clinton voters can take the moral high ground.

I guess your still sore about your candidate losing. Hope you feel better before the entire 8 years is over.

Who said anything about Clinton voters taking the high ground?  We've been over this before John, don't put words in my mouth.  This article wasn't written by a Clinton supporter.  So what would a Clinton supporter's stand on misogyny have to do with this?  They aren't the ones complaining about Olbermann.  What I am saying (so you can be clear of MY words) is that it's disingenuous to complain about Keith Olbermann's misogyny, and misogyny in general, if you are willing to elect a known misogynist into the White House.

vegasmayor perhaps you shouldn't make statements like this:

"I hardly think ANYONE on the right is in a position to talk about misogyny."

That's how I get the impression that you are anti republican, anti right, pro clinton.

Well I guess we know what happens when you assume, John.  I am not specifically anti those things.  And I am most certainly not pro Clinton.  I am not a fan of either Republicans or Democrats.  And I love how you quote me and leave out the word "unless" right after the statement you quote.  It's very convenient editing.  I can think of some well known news channels that do that exact same thing.

Equality, peace, love, choice, freedom.  I am passionate about social issues and environmental issues.  I am most concerned with my fellow man/woman and their well being.  I am much more concerned about giving than getting.  I am more concerned about humans than Americans.  I want to make a difference and I want to leave the world better than I found it.  I am a family man, a volunteer, a charitable giver, a lover of people, a friend, and hopefully a leader.  I love open and honest discussion and I like to be challenged in my beliefs and understandings.  I could go on and on...

Neither one offered in the United States does.  But why would I need to fit into someone's political mold anyway?  Who says I have to be part of any political party?

So you are just going to throw stones? Wow that's an easy position to take on every issue.

There are other political parties too.

Better to throw stones than kick them under the rug.  Why do I need to take a hard position on every subject?  Where are you getting these rules?  I call 'em like I see 'em.  The beauty is that you don't have to like that and that's okay.  I do not have to like your approach and that's okay.  But my opinion is every bit as valid as yours no matter what.

"Why do I need to take a hard position on every subject? "

Who said you did. You are the ones making provocative statements about the right. Not me.

Also there are not rules except being civil on here.
