Breaking News: PC Republican “Reporter” Katherine “Kat” Timp Almost Got Something Right on Race!

 

 

Did you know that it’s “racist” to use hoses to fight fires?

Or to water lawns and plants?

Or wash cars?

That’s what black supremacist member of the King County Council, aka the “Clowncil,” Larry Gossett, has implied. Gossett asserted that it would be racist to hose down the human feces and urine that crazed thugs leave on the sidewalk every day near the King County Courthouse.
Councilmember Larry Gossett said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists [sic] [Judges complain it’s unsafe, unsanitary outside King County Courthouse in Seattle, by Christine Clarridge, Seattle Times, July 12, 2017.]
But PC Republican writer Katherine “Kat” Timp takes a different tack.

“Now, I’m not trying to diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, but Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane. I mean, seriously — who even thinks of such a thing?...

“But social-justice alarmism can do a great job of turning the clearly uncontroversial into an outrage, and often at the expense of basic logic and practicality. It’s not that all social-justice activism is bad, of course. It’s great to be nice, and it’s great to be sensitive, but an obsession with social justice and political correctness can make people’s brains start to malfunction — and I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a better example of that than this.”
If Timpf had a spine, she would diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, and would argue that all social-justice activism is bad.

Civil rights activists, up to and including Martin Luther King Jr., have for over 60 years been dedicated to destroying America and to politically disenfranchising, pauperizing, and physically destroying the white race. And “social-justice activism” isn’t even a euphemism for communism.

But this is Kat Timp we’re talking about here, who is writing for National Review, where only the declawed are permitted to wrote about race.

As I’ve advised Republican writers Jonah Goldberg and Michelle Malkin in the past, if you’re going to talk about race, talk about race. Otherwise, shut up.

I’ve seen Timpf parrot Marxist talking points on crime on Fox News, where she is a regular guest on The Greg Gutfeld Show, helping to drag Gutfeld down to her level, and make the show unwatchable.

She apparently claims to be a comic, though I can’t recall her ever saying anything funny, as opposed to saying something while wearing a cheeky expression.
 

Seattle-Area Councilman: Hosing Poop-Covered Sidewalks Might Be Racially Insensitive

A councilman [sic] in Seattle is reportedly opposed to hosing sidewalks that reek of excrement near a local courthouse because he fears that it might be racially insensitive.

[He didn't double-qualify his statement. That's Timpf's own cowardice speaking.]

No, this is not a joke.

The area surrounding King County Superior Court includes a homeless shelter and other social-services organizations and has become an “unsanitary and potentially frightening” scene — one “that reeks of urine and excrement” — according to an article in the Seattle Times. Desperate for help with the disgusting environment, two of the court’s judges have asked the city to please power-wash the poop-covered sidewalks. That seems like a pretty reasonable request, but apparently, one councilman is worried that doing so might be a form of microaggression.

According to the Times, Councilmember Larry Gossett “said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”

Now, I’m not trying to diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, but Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane. I mean, seriously — who even thinks of such a thing? I see people power-washing bodily fluids off of the streets of New York City (including streets outside of courthouses) all the time, and I have not once seen any of them being called racist. To be fair, this city does still smell terrible, so the power-washing plan might not be the perfect solution on practical grounds, but at least it’s a start. What else are you going to do — not wash them? Because I really, really reject the idea that leaving sidewalks covered with human bodily waste is the less offensive move in this (or any) situation.

Anyone over the age of three knows that if you see poop somewhere, it’s supposed to be cleaned up. What’s more, most little kids could probably also tell you that said clean-up is supposed to involve water. In fact, before this, I would have told you that this is probably the least controversial opinion in human history.

But social-justice alarmism can do a great job of turning the clearly uncontroversial into an outrage, and often at the expense of basic logic and practicality. It’s not that all social-justice activism is bad, of course. It’s great to be nice, and it’s great to be sensitive, but an obsession with social justice and political correctness can make people’s brains start to malfunction — and I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a better example of that than this.

Somebody please go to the home of this Gossett and drops a deuce on his sidewalk. I can't wait to see him down on his hands and knees cleaning it up with a sponge because a hose is "insensitive".

White toilet paper is racist.

Exactly. Have the clown-cil-man suggest a better way to the job and then demonstrate to us all how it is done. Just once.

Most YT's do not understand that though urine/feces are disgusting filth to us white folk, to colored peoples, it is not the same. They are not offended by it. It is part of their low I.Q., inferior genetics, and temperaments. I think that negroes are made of sh*t anyway, so they have an affinity for it.
