One of the constants of the left is that if one of their own falls it certainly isn’t the fault of the left or anything resembling it. It’s an aberration, a person disturbed or the person really wasn’t a leftist after all.
But if you really want to find the ultimate it spinning Niki at the Liberty Zone has found it:
I shouldn’t be amazed at the continued racism, prejudice, and utter appalling lies perpetuated by the SJW crowd. After all I’ve written about them enough on this blog. Every time I finish an essay, I promise myself to ignore these nits hereafter. I don’t want to give them any additional publicity or clicks.
The story she is talking about is pretty basic, a rather well-known Astronomer and professor at liberal Bastion USC Berkeley Geoffrey William Marcy was found to have violated the sexual harassment policy of the college
Amid growing outrage less than a week after a sexual harassment scandal burst into the news, renowned astronomer Geoff Marcy has resigned his post at UC Berkeley.
But his resignation, announced by campus administrators Wednesday, did little to quell anger over the school’s light punishment after an official investigation found he had been subjecting students to unwanted groping, kissing and massages for nearly a decade.
The Berkley statement is of interest:
It is important to understand that as Berkeley’s leadership considered disciplinary options, we did not have the authority, as per University of California policy, to unilaterally impose any disciplinary sanctions, including termination. Discipline of a faculty member is a lengthy and uncertain process. It would include a full hearing where the standards of evidence that would be used are higher than those that are applied by the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) in the course of its investigations. The process would also be subject to a three-year statute of limitations.
The statute of limitation explains why this is not criminal matter.
Now the idea that a Berkeley Professor used power to take sexual advantage of students in his care is a legit story and one that’s repeated in public schools & colleges nationwide.
What was the cause? The abuse of power? A predatory nature? Because he could? No the blame for this Berkley professor can be laid at the door of that infamous womanizer…Captain Kirk…
In hindsight, those early episodes seem undeniably cheesy, but at the time they were far more serious – not only about the starship Enterprise’s mission “to boldly go where no man has gone before,” but also about the importance of Captain Kirk meeting hot alien babes on all of the strange planets they found.
if you think blaming Kirk is maximum crazy it’s not:
But condemning the behavior of the university and the professor wasn’t good enough for the “writer” of the dreck I cited above. No, she just had to take the opportunity to smear the SJWs’ favorite punching bag, the Sad Puppies, with that tainted brush, because Sad Puppies = anyone the SJWs hate.
The mental acrobatics and irrational contortions that she obviously had to go through to reach this conclusion are making my eyes cross! You see, the Sad Puppies, in the addled shit show of a mind of this particular imbecile, want to bring back the good ole days of science fiction, which are replete with misogyny, degradation of women, and the SJW morons’ favorite boogieman: the domination of old white men.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
This college professor while pretending to be a good liberal professor at Berkeley was made a sexual harasser late in life because of the horrible influence of William Shatner’s portrayal of Captain Kirk and Furthermore this just shows that the Sad Puppies Hugo Awards guys want to create a world we’re science fiction will be all about grooming people to think sexually assault women while pretending they are orion slave girls.
And you thought medical marijuana wasn’t harmful.
Of course even funnier is the demonstration of my crazy uncle principle as said opinion apparently produced a plethora of agreements and affirmation. It’s a wonder they haven’t launched a class action suit against Shatner.
I wonder if Bill Clinton & Bill Cosby were big Trek fans?
There are people in the world who need to be laughed at publicly, this person is one of them.

Update: Related, perhaps not being able to cope with the opposite sex is a berkeley problem.
“One time, I agreed to meet with this guy at 8 or 9 at night. Before we met, I said to him, ‘This is the work I do, I know the chief of police … so, don’t try and get creepy; I know all my rights.’ And five minutes later, he was like, ‘Actually, I’m really not OK with how you just assume I’m a bad guy. And I get very bad vibes from that, so we shouldn’t hang out anymore.’”
“I was in a rage. He was a total fuckboy about consent,” she said.
I guess this berkeley co-ed is lucky this guy sounds like a closet Shatner fan to me. I think Stacy can see her future
