New York Times Op-Ed: "Why I Admire Anthony Weiner"

The New York Times' political rehabilitation of a teen-sexting compulsive masturbator begins before he's even been checked into his cell.

A woman wrote this -- or at least she calls herself "Sally." Sally Satel, some kind of functionary at the American Enterprise Institute.

Even though Weiner tried to avoid jail time by claiming he was a "very sick man" -- blaming his "illness" for his crime -- this prog is going to claim he was a brave, stand-up guy for not blaming his illness.


Mr. Weiner cried as he pleaded guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor, a crime that carried up to 10 years in prison. "I acted not only unlawfully but immorally, and if I had done the right thing, I would not be standing before you today," he told Judge Denise L. Cote in Manhattan.

"I was a very sick man for a very long time," he said. Indeed, his behavior fits a commonly understood definition of addiction, which is persistent engagement in a behavior despite negative consequences.

So there he blames the sickness, and this pyrsyn agrees with his suggestion that his "sickness" is to blame.

Then he says:


"Iíve had a disease but I have no excuse," he continued. "I accept complete and total responsibility for my crime. I was the adult."

Anthony Weiner was caught red-handed. (Or, pink handed. Or white handed. I guess it depends on the moment we're talking about.) He knows you're supposed to say "I accept all responsibility" when begging a judge to absolve you of at least some responsibility. He twice, so far, just from these quotes, has blamed his "illness" and his "disease."

But this simpleton claims that by repeatedly shifting blame to his "disease," he's actually... not shifting blame to his disease.


In admitting this...

Admitting what? Admitting that what computer Skype sessions prove he did?

...Mr. Weiner captured an important distinction that has been lost in our culture, which tends to over-pathologize problematic behavior. He didnít blame his "disease."

Yes, he did. Why bring it up at all, if he's taking full responsibility?

Someone who takes full responsibility doesn't repeatedly attempt to establish a "diminished capacity" defense that suggests his "disease" was at least partly to blame.


He knows that there is a difference between having a compulsion and acting on it. But there is an idea bigger than just controlling oneís impulses. Itís what legal scholars and philosophers call "diachronous responsibility."

You can read about that if you like. To me, it's filler. It's to make this sound like there's a point to it, besides giving an early push to a Anthony Weiner's PR efforts.

This may sound odd, but I admire Anthony Weiner for what he did on Monday. He stood tearfully before the judge and acknowledged several compatible truths: that he was responsible for his action, that he is accepting the consequences, and that he needs help so that he can liberate himself from those compulsions, or, at the very least, stop acting on them.

It's as if this idiot has never seen Anthony Weiner's previous teary-eyed confessions and evasions -- following his denials.

Anthony Weiner is one of those brave stand-up guys who admits the truth only when there is smoking gun evidence offered against him, just as he did in the first Weinergate outbreak.

That a man would lie and blame others for his own embarrassing, even illegal, actions is hardly uncommon. But nor is it uncommon -- or admirable -- that when caught with smoking-gun proof against him, he should try to ingratiate himself to the judge by claiming, inconsistently, that he takes "full responsibility" and yet that he also has a "disease" and has been "sick for a very long time."

This is the normal behavior of someone trapped by truth when lies will no longer work. This is the normal behavior of a criminal caught and convicted beyond any reasonable doubt, now just hoping to ingratiate himself to a judge to escape the punishment that he most fears.

It's normal-- and not at all "admirable."

Also note that he brings his wife out to further humiliate her during some of these not-voluntarily-made "confessions" in order to act as a Huma Shield -- not exactly the actions of an admirable, stand-up guy who takes "full responsibility" himself.

Oh, by the way, the New York Times continues attempting to rehabilitate communism, this entry telling us that the Chinese communist reign which killed 50 million at least allowed the women it permitted to live to "dream big."

More here, including a graphic picture of some women decapitated by Mao, who were presumably Dreaming Big about retaining their heads before they were murdered.

It's a storyline called turning a Heel into a Hero (or a Babyface).

Heel wrestlers go out and beg for redemption. At then end of their performance, they're a Hero!

Mounted a shelf securely into the top of the opening in the block wall, using masonry screws and Gorilla glue to fasten the shelf cleats to the block. Shortened up the glass, replaced it in the lower part of the opening. Placed A/C on shelf, packed glass wool around it, and covered the visible edge of the glass wool with duct tape.

Now its beer time.

104 JackStraw, not a news flash to you or most here, but the absurd unfitness of almost everyone in the last administration was off the charts. Comical. Clinton years had some people promoted vastly beyond their abilities, esp. in the foreign policy/nat. security area. This was nothing compared to the Obama years, when even those too goofy or mediocre even for the Clinton admin. were given huge, and I mean yuuuuge, jobs. Unbelievable. But the president was an absolute non-entity himself, so no surprise. Just disgust at the national degradation (and the damage caused, which was immense, and continues).

124 Re, 50 million, 78 million; I'll link to a review I did of David Cole's book "Republican Party Animal" : http://tinyurl.com/y9bvgm2k

Depending on who's counting and, more importantly, what they decide counts, one can get a lot of different numbers out of a study of genocide. Quantity has a quality of its own. As one famous genocidaire put it...

I think the best example here is Cromwell. The Lord Protector (lol) might have personally ordered "only" a few massacres which "only" slaughtered a few thousand Irish. But he got the message across: the Irish were huntin' stock over most of Ireland, and English soldiers weren't going to be asked many questions if a few Irish went missing in the parts that were officially pacified.

In an atmosphere of general lawlessness, some are directly murdered; many more are killed randomly and not noted down; and many many more after that just... disappear. Some run for it or pretend they're English (in this case). Others run for it. Others choose to delay having kids. Or they just up and die, one way or another.

It's a depressing topic.

I have been, and remain, fairly despondent over the WH's apparent decision not to do much to reshape the GOP by putting incumbents on the spot, but maybe - which is counter to the past pattern, and the country's luck - the worst obstacle will just remove themselves. Or some of them, anyway.

If it helps in this regard, hope the crazy gun-waving Bible quotin' judge wins by 40 points in AL.

180 Yep JJ, and recall "Democrat" meant something unrecognizable from today's perspective (hell, even from 2000 or so).

Staff knew to get to Moynihan with important stuff before the afternoon, which was often "Churchillian" in nature (i.e. ultra-high functioning genius alcoholic).

Still recall the fantastic disquisition he gave on the floor when arguing for his amendment to a defense bill that would bar all trade with the USSR (or something close to that). Long literate ramble on the history of Bolshevism, built around the concept/quote of "selling us the rope to hang them with".

Summer-time, weekend, so the galleries were full, even a lot of senators on the floor (not common). Standing ovation when he completed his talk - the other senators recognized there was nobody else in the body at that time with the intellectual firepower, or the eloquence, of Moynihan.

Amendment went down something like 92-8.

One of the kneeling assholes was Adrian Peterson, who used to be treated like a minor diety here in Minnesota when he was a Viking running back.

We willingly overlooked his off field behavior and his half dozen (or more) children with a string of baby mamas. One of his kids in North Dakota was murdered, and he beat another so badly his butt was bleeding when he visited him in Texas.

252 I still recall how Robert Conquest's approach - attempting to estimate Great Terror victims by measuring demographic anomalies in census data - brought home the magnitude of the evil. That one could use macro-data to estimate *murders* is a sickening and unbelievable concept.


Posted by: rhomboid at September 26, 2017 07:47 PM (QDnY+)

In terms of total victims: Mao, then Stalin, then Hitler, most likely. Not that this is a race for anywhere but the seventh circle of Hell.

Red Empire (I think) was a great series narrated by Conquest. He makes a good point, during the Soviet period, Soviets criticized him for inflating the statistics of deaths caused by Stalin. After the Soviet period, Russian scholars criticized him for being too low.

That is a good series, btw. You can find it for free on Youtube.

You know, when chance after chance after chance after chance arises to advance good ideas, stop bad ones, increase differentiation with your opponent, and generally use your power and position to accomplish something ...... just mumble stupid and useless platitudes like you're the deputy press spokesman for a first-term House member from an obscure district.

268 From Twatter:

Anthony Weiner's fall from grace has been absurdly damaging to progressivism, but damn if it isn't nice to see a white guy face consequences

Bonus: He's a Jew, too (kinda).

You must have read that article about the blonde, the brunette and the redhead who were stranded on a deserted island. That was really quite tragic.

272 The NYT gives air time for someone to defend a sexual predator who specializes in the underaged? Jesus H. Christ, why?

Because The Weiner knows something really, really big.

Since he has an ego to match, somebody needs to help him pretend he has a way back to stardom, crazy as that sounds to normal people. But that has to be, otherwise The Weiner might cut a plea deal to sing like a songbird. He needs to be convinced it is worth it to go to jail. Once he is in jail, they can make sure he never spills the beans. Arkansas-sure. Shit happens in jail.

The Weiner knows something really, really big.

275 :OT: these are a couple comments that got willowed last night:

864 ONE THING I HAVE YET TO HEAR IN ANY FORM:
The protesting players are dishonoring every African American who has ever fought or died for this country or for any african in any part of the world.


866 A statement that Jerrod Kushner should make:

" I have, and will continue, to exceed all legal requirements concerning gov't e-mail as stated by James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation."

Thanks for reading. I have just gotten out of the hospital after having 3 strokes. I will have carotid artery surgery on Friday.

I remember a NYPD detective saying they had found truly disgusting material on his laptop. Sure sounds like more than dick pics to me. Perhaps "pizza" related?

Don't be hasty. One of the main reasons football isn't showing worse viewership is stuff like this. But, was anyone actually watching it? Kinda like CNN in every airport, hotel and Regus suite on the planet. Does NOT mean anyone's watching.

*****************************


DirecTv (ATnT) is allowing purchasers of the football package to receive full refunds if they request. DirecTv custserv telephones are ringing off the hook and at over $200.00 a pop they're going to forfeit no small chunk of change.

Somethings in the wind.

287 I was in a bar. All the TVs were tuned to ESPN with the sound off. But everyone in the place was silently watching and lip reading.

And their hair was perfect.

*Sobs*

Exactly. CNN is on all over, but actual eyeballs on their channel are few. Just because the game is on at the bar doesn't mean its being watched.

290 "He stood tearfully before the judge and acknowledged several compatible truths:"

Compatible truths? How about contemptible truths?

Posted by: Anonymous White Male at September 26, 2017 09:18 PM (AM8tm)

291 In regard to Anthony Weiner's looks and desirability : he is to men what Helen Thomas was to woman's beauty.

How can such a plug-ugly man believe he's sexy?

I would puke if he touched me.
