TKC READER EXCLUSIVE CHALLENGE!!! KANSAS CITY RAGES AGAINST JENEÉ OSTERHELDT AFTER 'WHITE SUPREMACIST' ALLEGATION AGAINST PREZ TRUMP!!!
Coping with a litany of messages this morning and here's the trend as weekend political anger persists . . .
RIGHT NOW WE'RE INUNDATED WITH NOTES CHALLENGING THE WORDS OF TABLOID NEWSPAPER COLUMNIST JENEÉ "HOOPZ" OSTERHELDT AND DEMANDING DEBATE!!!
Here's the most extensive criticism we've seen so far, edited for length and clarity but accurately reflecting just a bit of the public backlash encountered by this "progressive" scribe. Checkit:
TKC READER CHALLENGE LETTER TO: Jeneé Osterheldt of The Kansas City Star
Dear Ms. Osterheldt:
Due to your recent inflammatory rhetoric regarding NFL player protests during the national anthem, accusations of racial discrimination against black journalists, and stating that the President of the United States is a white supremacist, I decided to take a closer look at you and your background. Prior to this time, while I was vaguely aware of who you were, after reading a couple of your articles, I had dismissed you as a rather superficial scribe of happy hours, fashion, zip-lines, indoor skydiving, and other such pressing social issues of our time.
So, now you're back in Kansas City after completing the Nieman Fellows program at Harvard University. Congratulations on that endeavor. I do have a couple of questions regarding your participation in that program if you'd indulge me please. Could you explain the process by which you were chosen for the program? How and when were you made aware of the Nieman Fellows? Who lobbied on your behalf to get you into the program? I noticed that half or more of the class were foreign students with international journalism experience, so it seemed odd to me that a "lifestyle" reporter from The Kansas City Star would participate and study…..“theories of discrimination and their application to storytelling on diverse subjects. Her research will include black and women’s studies, as well as the history of feminism.” Does this mean you're abandoning "lifestyle" to embrace your inner feminist radical?
While conducting your year of largely self-directed research at Harvard, did you discover that Harvard University has an endowment fund of nearly $36 billion dollars? Do you know where that money came from and how it's invested? Do you care? In what year did progressive Harvard select their first female president? Has Harvard ever had a president of color lead the university?
Ms. Osterheldt, did you lead protests on the Harvard campus against the blatant discrimination inflicted upon Whites, so that Asian Americans could be over-represented at Harvard? Did you fight for the rights of prospective students from the Midwest, Central, and Mountain states? If not, why not? Is your motto "Black Lives Matter….The Rest Are On Their Own"?
Did you ever walk by the statue of John Harvard in Harvard Yard? Did you protest for the removal of this statue or at least kneel with raised fist each time you passed by? Maybe Ms. Osterheldt is only a follower, waiting for others to raise a ruckus on an issue before jumping on the bandwagon. Or perhaps, she'll never bite the hand that feeds her despite their guilt being at least equal to those whom she publicly lambasts without qualm. For that matter, who thinks that Jeneé Osterheldt has taken the time to research the history of James McClatchy and his descendants, of the McClatchy newspaper company (parent of The Kansas City Star)?
Ms. Osterheldt, here's my main criticism of you based upon your public image as projected through your writing: You are a self-described perpetual VICTIM.
Poor Jeneé, she's biracial!
Poor Jeneé, her parents abandoned her!
Poor Jeneé, she's afraid of the rollercoaster!
Poor Jeneé, she's afraid to go on the zip-line!
Poor Jeneé, she's frightened to try indoor skydiving!
Poor Jeneé, her dog got cancer!
Poor Jeneé, her mother died from lung cancer!
Poor Jeneé, her marriage failed!
Poor, poor, pitiful Jeneé! If you're capable of self-reflection, do you see a palpable trend in your writing? Why must the story invariably revolve around you and your perception of being a victim in life? Imagine for a moment that you've exhausted the supply of white liberal shoulders to cry upon, and were forced to discuss serious issues of reality, what would those be?
You decide . . .
