‘Pistachio Girl’ fired for being a white nationalist

Emily Youcis is kind of famous for selling pistachios at Philadelphia Phillies games. She’s now also kind of famous for being a white nationalist. As it turns out, if you’re famous for defending the white race, you can’t sell pistachios for the Phillies. Who knew?

Philadelphia PhilliesAfter a story came out identifying her as a white nationalist, Aramark, the company that runs concessions at Citizens Bank Park, fired her.

It’s not like she was keeping it a secret. Her political views were in plain view on her Twitter feed. She also appeared at an Alt-Right rally in Washington DC after the election. She appears on a video interviewing people protesting against white nationalism and Donald Trump.

Not that the two have anything in common.

As an American, I’m sick and tired of hearing about race. As Americans, the color of our skin or where our ancestors came from is meaningless. There’s only one race, the human race. I hold no allegiance to my skin color. The only loyalty I hold is to my country and the people it consists of. My country is made up of all sorts of individuals, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

With all that said, I wish Aramark hadn’t fired Emily Youcis. Her fellow racists will now view her as a special victim. Firing her simply made her a martyr for her political views. Being fired also helps drive people with her racist views underground.

If someone is a racist, I’d rather everyone know it.

Arthur Chu keeping it classy

Former Jeopardy champion Arthur Chu isn’t too happy about Donald Trump becoming president. Here is something he tweeted in response to the Trump win:

When I first saw a screenshot of this tweet on Reddit, I assumed it had to be fake. I went to Twitter and did a search for it. I couldn’t find it. I then logged out of Twitter and repeated the search. I found it right away.

This meant Arthur Chu has me blocked on Twitter. When I logged back in, this is what it showed:
screen-shot-2016-11-10-at-11-12-29-am
Arthur Chu is the gentleman on the left. The fellow on the right is Jeopardy host Alex Trebek.

I find it ridiculous and extremely unnecessary that Arthur Chu has me blocked on Twitter. I’ve had zero interactions with him on Twitter or anywhere else. I am not a troll. I use my own name on Twitter, a platform I’ve used since 2007.

Arthur Chu is a pathetic, racist little man. If I was the type of person who allowed myself to become offended (I’m not), getting blocked on Twitter by someone as important as Arthur Chu would offend me.

Shelly Sterling named ‘Clippers’ Number One Fan’

The NBA officially declared yesterday that former Microsoft muckety-muck Steve Ballmer is now the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. It cost him only $2 billion. That’s OK though, because he’s worth around $20 billion. One might think that when you pay that much for a team, that the sale would be clean, without any extra obligations.

That is not the case with the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The deal involves a series of perks for Shelly Sterling, longtime wife of former Clippers owner, racist scumbag Donald Sterling. This perks include:

  • $200 million funneled into The Shelly Sterling Foundation, an organization to be dedicated to benefiting children, minorities, and abused women. As the name implies, Sterling will get to run the foundation.
  • Two courtside tickets to all Clippers home games.
  • Ten tickets in sections 101 or 111 to all Clippers home games.
  • Six parking spots in Lot C for each Clippers game.
  • Twelve VIP passes to all of the fancy lounges and clubs in the Staples Center.
  • Three championship rings if the Clippers ever win a title.
  • Honorary title of “Owner Emeritus” and “Clippers’ Number One Fan” for the rest of her life.

Why Steve Ballmer would want to own the Los Angeles Clippers is beyond me, especially when it means he will have to deal with Shelly Sterling on a continuous basis. She’s just as racist and just as awful as her husband. I would rather drink a cup of Ebola than root for a team who’s number one fan is Shelly Sterling.
