Well, well, well, what do we have here? Yet another racist punk turns out to be a racist, and a serial, pervert as well. And thus we have another race baiting holier-than-thou, POS going down in flames. I know, right? And of course it is he of whom I speak that is none other than that well-known race-baiter, Tavis Smiley, whose longtime talk show, subsidized by your tax dollars, on PBS has now been ‘suspended’ over what were called “troubling allegations” regarding Smiley’s penchant for sexually harassing staffers, and retaliating against those who refused his manliness.
Smiley has a long history of being racist. And while he has stated that the first black president did very little to help those in the black community, he always had a number of excuses at the ready for why that was. And it was after receiving several allegations that he had engaged in sexual relationships with subordinates, and created a hostile work environment, PBS reached out to a law firm to investigate the claims. A PBS spokesperson told the Daily News, “The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS.”
While the spokesperson declined to go into great detail regarding the complaints, sources told Variety that Smiley would use his position as one of the networks longest-serving talk show hosts, to entice his subordinates into having sex with him. According to Variety, some witnesses even said they felt like the status of their employment hinged on their sexual relationship with Smiley. Other complaints against Smiley included verbal abuse, as well as threats and retaliation against any who complained. After all, how dare anyone refuse a studly specimen like Tavis.
According to Variety: In a February piece in the Observer, Jacques Hyzagi, a former producer on Smiley’s television show, wrote that Smiley’s “misogyny is always creeping around, barely camouflaged by Midwestern good manners.” Hyzagi described Smiley picking up a woman at the Orlando airport and bringing her along on a reporting trip as a “f*ck buddy”: alleged that Smiley had a romantic relationship with another producer; and quoted Smiley denigrating PBS executives. Smiley has made his political leaning, his racial biases, well-known in his ten-plus years at PBS.
It was on Smiley’s show in May of 2015, that Susan Sarandon blamed America’s homeless problem on former President Ronald Reagan, a position that Smiley appeared to agree with. On November of 2017, Smiley and Vagina Monologues creator Eve Ensler wondered why so many women voted for President Trump, given his alleged history of harassing women. Eventually, the two decided that women who voted for Trump were “self-loathing.” And he’s also had guests on his show to debate such worthwhile topics as “white rage” and “white nationalism” in the age of Trump.
I’ve always been a big believer in that old adage, “What goes around, comes around.” I’ve simply seen it play out too many times not to be a believer. And never could there be a more worthy recipient of it than this twit, Smiley. I’m sure most have observed Smiley’s denigrating of first, candidate, and now President, Trump. This pompous sanctimonious hypocrite had no end of viscous personal attacks, using the megaphone provided by his show, while at the same time employing those considered to be the typical batch of sycophantic guests gleefully aping his viewpoints.
So here we have another liberal media type apparently biting the dust! Liberals are the most perverted bunch of people on the planet! Why have our tax dollars EVER been used to subsidize the extreme hate-whitey racist leftists like Smiley? He’s always been a transparent phony-baloney. He tries to drape himself in this pseudo-intellectual framework, complete with his stylized speech patterns and fake eyebrow contortions. And I must say that is better than hearing how Charlie Rose, the other PBS douchebag, recently got kicked to the curb. What a way to end the year!
Smiley oftentimes seemed to be seething with a rage that he was barely able to control. I think he has used it throughout his career to intimidate and manipulate the people around him, whether they be co-workers or guests on his program with whom he disagreed. These allegations come as no surprise and seem to be about the only mechanism for changing the programming at both PBS and NPR, death or removal by sexual harassment. I swear there’s been little or no change in the programming of these government-sponsored propaganda outlets, or their hosts, for years.
And it was in responding to these accusations, as well as the decision to suspend his show, that on Wednesday night Smiley took to Facebook posting a video and statement in which he claims that he has “never groped, coerced, or exposed myself inappropriately to any workplace colleague in my entire broadcast career, covering 6 networks over 30 years.” He wrote, “If having a consensual relationship with a colleague years ago is the stuff that leads to this kind of public humiliation and personal destruction, heaven help us.” Yup, it’s Smiley who’s the REAL victim here.
Anyway, Smiley went on to add, “PBS overreacted and conducted a biased and sloppy investigation, which led to a rush to judgment, and trampling on a reputation that I have spent an entire lifetime trying to establish.” I guess the only thing left now is for him to accuse PBS of basing their decision to suspend him on nothing other than racism. I mean, isn’t that ALWAYS the first response from blacks who feel that they have somehow been treated unfairly. That this is only now happening to him because he’s black? I’m sure that’s coming. It’s really only a matter of time.
Now it occurs to me that those on the left seem to now be operating what is nothing more than a modern day secular version of the Inquisition, carried out during the middle ages and the aim of which was to combat heresy, by publicly pillorying those equipped with a penis who “they” have determined do not adequately worship, or hold in sufficient reverence, the female of the species. Charges are laid, no defense is permitted, and public humiliation and destruction of the accused’s livelihood is automatic. In their basic function, all inquisitions operate pretty much alike.
And even with all that said, had old Tavis tended to be just a bit less racist in his opinions and had he demonstrated just a bit more genuine concern for those in the black community, I might feel a little sorry for him. Instead, he’s really nothing more than just another black mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, and someone willing to use his fellow blacks as way of making himself a lot of money and gaining for himself more than a little notoriety. The only person that Smiley truly cares about is, Smiley. So like I said, all we’re seeing here is another example of what goes around…
