Sometimes, Two Wrongs Do Make a Right

By Nicholas Stix

Non-tenured professor University of Tampa assistant sociology professor Ken Storey was fired for twitting gleefully about Hurricane Harvey’s destruction of Texas.

“I dont believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesnt care about them” commenter Priss Factor: "As terrible as the professor’s statement was, I don’t think he should have been terminated for that."

I responded, Sometimes, two wrongs make a right. This is one of those times.

If Ken Storey doesn't get fired, it means that Communists can act with carte blanche, while non-Coms can get fired for nothing. Communists must know that there are some acts that will result in their termination. Even with that, the situation in higher ed is intolerable, but let's try and keep it from getting worse still.

Beyond the case of Ken Storey, the phrase, “Two wrongs don’t make a right,” is a classic case of false wisdom. It is typically used to rationalize a wrong, by arguing against the victim of said wrong exacting vengeance. No vengeance, no justice. Thus, as I see it, the “wisdom” is used to cover for a wrong, by turning a right into a wrong. It turns justice on its head.

Thanks for your comment. Storey is the proverbial tip of the iceberg. He just said openly what many of his ilk feel. You see the mask slipping more and more.

"Two wrongs don't make a right." Something over 20 years ago, a young man had a Confederate flag in the back of his pickup truck. A group of black "teens" chased him down and shot him dead. An editorial in one of the Nashville papers intoned "Two wrongs don't make a right."

In other words, flying a flag was equivalent to killing somebody. Or rather, a legitimate excuse to kill.

DETROIT (WOOD) — A Detroit Lions fan no longer has season tickets and isn’t welcome in the stadium anymore, the team said Thursday.

The fan posted a racist!Snapchat during last week’s game of two African American fans sitting for the national anthem with a caption including a racial slur. It also included a voiced-over suggestion that the fans leave the country.

The post made its way to Facebook and went viral.

Following an investigation by the Lions, the team released a statement Wednesday, but didn’t specify the post or what punishment the fan would face.

“Providing our fans with a safe and enjoyable experience at all Ford Field events is of the utmost importance and an absolute priority for our organization. A core component of our guest conduct policy is the expectation that all fans are respectful and considerate to each other regardless of their personal beliefs or differences,” the statement said.

Head coach Jim Caldwell addressed the issue Thursday, saying he agreed with the decision.

“We do have a fan behavior standard code of standards,” head coach Jim Caldwell said. “I think without question that our organization followed up, found out who the person was and he no longer has season tickets in our stadium. I think it was handled appropriately and I think those things happen sometimes.”

According to the Lions’ fan code of conduct, fans can have tickets revoked for inappropriate behavior toward others and using foul or abusive language or obscene gestures.

Team president Rod Wood said Thursday he will personally contact the fans who were the target of the post.
GRA:There's a pic of the two blacks sitting in their chairs while everyone else is standing for the "Star Spangled Banner."
The man who took the photo,posted it and commented.So where does the hammer come down?The white guy!!!Not the blacks showing disrespect.Unless the blacks were crippled,the photo is a legitimate commentary on black attitudes toward (White)America.But now,the blacks are deemed innocent of all wrongdoing--be it simple acts like this,or felony drug dealing and murder.Put this one in "Ripley's Believe it or Not."

DETROIT (WJBK) - The Detroit Lions say that a fan who posted a picture of two Lions fans sitting during the national anthem that included a racist name no longer has his season tickets.

The Lions confirmed to FOX 2 that the fan no longer will be a season-ticket holder and isn't welcome in the stadium.

In the photo, the two black Lions fans are sitting and are called "ignorant n-words."


The man allegedly behind the post is a Pontiac business owner, who, on Sunday, denied posting the photo and writing the bigoted caption.

“I didn't post any pictures, any collages anything … I don't know where that even came from,” said the unidentified business owner.

The woman in the video, Stacy, says she sits during the anthem because of the lyrics in the third stanza about killing self-emancipated slaves. She said that the man could have gone with something nicer.

“Everybody has an opinion. He probably could've stuck with ‘he wishes we would've stood’ and I would’ve been like ‘ok’, but to write that under our picture … no words,” said Stacey.

FOX 2 has reached out to the poster for comment but have been unable to reach him.
GRA:They can protest,but we can't call them out on it.The left is all for controlling behavior(my behavior)--I guess patriotism isn't one of the "behaviors" they care about.
