Turns out 'Central Park Karen' was an Obama and Buttigieg donor
A white woman who got into an incredibly stupid altercation with a black man in the wilds of Central Park over her inexplicable refusal to put her dog on a leash as he politely asked and the park rules required, and then threatened to call the cops on him, pretty well did herself in. After getting herself on film in the throes of her episode, and seeing it go viral, Amy Cooper lost her $170,000-a-year job at Franklin Templeton, any prospect of employment afterward, her reputation, and even her dog. And sure enough, her lowly dog-walker was the one who turned her in.
It was rough justice for sure, given what she did, but she knew the rules of living in New York. Tom Wolfe's Sherman McCoy pretty well mansplained it. For being a "Karen," or entitled white woman, as the annoying term now means, she's now a Sherman. As for the black man, Christian Cooper (no relation), he was unjustly treated, too, given that the woman was trying to call the cops on him and counting on the cops to believe her over him, and she was lying about being "threatened." The only creature who got a real scare from that encounter was the poor yelping dog.
Oh, when Karens take a walk with their dogs off leash in the famous Bramble in NY’s Central Park, where it is clearly posted on signs that dogs MUST be leashed at all times, and someone like my brother (an avid birder) politely asks her to put her dog on the leash. pic.twitter.com/3YnzuATsDm— Melody Cooper (@melodyMcooper) May 25, 2020
But for all the talk about who got injustice, whether it was her, him or both — and Christian Cooper was quite magnanimous to say she was probably being over-punished — the most indisputable victims in this miserable instance were President Trump's supporters. Leftists pounced on the matter and splatted all over the internet that this foolish woman was a Trump-supporter. Here's one of them, per the Independent of London.
Actually, she was a liberal. Just like everyone else in that picture. She'd voted for Barack Obama twice. She was a big fan of Hillary Clinton. She donated money to the John Kerry and Pete Buttigieg campaigns. She went to the now-left-wing University of Chicago. She was as proper as they come in the eyes of the left establishment swamp. And still she attempted to pull that call-the-cops stunt on the black man after he asked her to put the dog on a leash (he was an avid bird-watcher, and dogs disturb ground bird nests) and then offered dog biscuits to her dog to get her to put the leash on.
Yet lefties have yet to delete their tweets claiming this was MAGA in action, and the product of the "climate" President Trump had created.
Amy Cooper will probably receive an invitation the the White House and be awarded the Medal of Freedom from Trump.— SarahCA 🏠 (@SarahBCalif) May 26, 2020
After all, she represents everything Trump loves: racism, hatred, lying and a dog hater. #AmyCooper https://t.co/ElaO3HAWlJ
Even the Independent of London thinks that's a problem. It has a great curation of all the leftist smears.
The Independent goes to great pains to argue that racism can exist anywhere, including among the left's polite people.
But that's not the story. The story is that leftists are so filled with their own sense of self-virtue that they can't possibly conceive of racism sitting in their own ranks. Any time anything bad happens, Trump's supporters did it. Nobody's apologizing for that nonsense. The people who got smeared in this instance, for sure, were the Trumpsters. Call it left-skin privilege. Where's the lefty apology on that?
