Hello and welcome to the Watcher's Council's 'Weasel Of The Week' nominations, where we award the famed golden plastic Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations and check back Thursday to see which Weasel gets the votes and walks off with the statuette of shame!
Here are this weeks' nominees...
Obama Consigliere And Puppet Master Valerie Jarrett!!
The Noisy Room : I nominate Valerie Jarrett this week, for once again taking the roll of President and controlling and manipulating events in Ferguson.
Jarrett was in contact with Missouri’s Governor Nixon in the run-up to the announcement of the Grand Jury’s decision. Nixon vehemently denied that he was being pressured to have the National Guard and police stand down in Ferguson. Meanwhile, the riots the first night were allowed to rage unhampered by any police or military presence. People's businesses burned to the ground, looting was everywhere and police cars were toppled and burned, all while Nixon watched. The White House has now admitted that Jarrett was in close contact with Nixon during the first 24 hours of unrest. Jarrett, most assuredly, instructed the Governor to stand down and let the violence ensue.
For that and oh, so much more... Jarrett is an enemies within weasel who deserves more than the plastic golden weasel - she deserves jail time.
Five Racialist Members Of The St. Louis Rams!
Virginia Right!: I would like to nominate the 5 members of the St. Louis Ram's that held their hands up in a "don't shoot" statement on Michael Brown's death. Despite the testimony, the forensic evidence and all common sense, these 5 players sent out a message that is completely wrong about the facts in the case. And it is just as shameful that these players will not be fined.
Michael Brown never held up his hands. Rather he attacked the police officer. These guys should have been suspended for endangering the police that were there to provide security at the game. If there was a word that was defined as the opposite of role model, these guys would be it.
Missouri Democrat Governor Jay 'Let 'Em Loot N' Burn' Nixon!
Nice Deb: I nominate Missouri Governor Jay Nixon for calling up the National Guard for the Ferguson Grand Jury decision, but keeping them away after the announcement was made, letting the city burn. It has been speculated that he was under pressure by either the White House or DOJ to keep the Guard away from the embattled town.
His weaselly excuse for the neglect - that lining the streets with National Guardsmen "wasn't the plan," they were being deployed to protect strategic locations like utilities, hospitals, public buildings - doesn't hold water. There was no more strategic location on the night of November 24, than Ferguson, Missouri.
He has actually doubled down on his incompetence, simpering, "obviously, there was more violence than we expected."
CNN, The Cable Nuisance Network!
The Razor : I nominate CNN for doing their best to portray the Ferguson protests as peaceful, even going so far, as the New York Post notes, to blame the police for inciting the protesters by closing a road after gunfire. The Left has gotten its collective head so far up its own @ss on this topic that it’s going to take some serious weaseling to get out. And weaseling is what the Left and CNN do best.
Talk about your slimy weasels! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
