Boner (Round One and Two) for October 24th, 2018

ROUND ONE:

BONER CANDIDATE #1: MY COSTUME WAS A TRIBUTE TO THE BELOVED AUNT JEMIMAH

NBC host Megyn Kelly apologized to colleagues on Tuesday after her comments defending racist Halloween gags prompted an immediate backlash. “One of the wonderful things about my job is that I get the chance to express and hear a lot of opinions,” Kelly said in the internal note, a copy of which was provided by a spokesperson for NBC. “Today is one of those days where listening carefully to other points of view, including from friends and colleagues, is leading me to rethink my own views.” Kelly made the offending remarks during an awkward roundtable discussion about inappropriate and offensive costumes on her eponymous one-hour block of the “Today” show, known as “Megyn Kelly Today.” During the segment on Tuesday, Kelly said it was OK when she was growing up for white people to dress up as black characters, and she spoke out against a controversy that erupted last year over a reality star who portrayed Diana Ross. “But what is racist?” Kelly asked. “Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character.”

BONER CANDIDATE #2: IT’S TIME TO NAME THE HAPPY PLACE SPORTS BAR SOMETHING ELSE

A man was shot and killed early Monday inside the Happy Place Sports Bar in Orange County, according to deputies. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said Adrian Peralta, 24, died in the shooting, which was reported at 5:41 a.m. at 7400 Southland Blvd. near Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando. According to officials, deputies were called to the bar for an aggravated battery and shooting, and Peralta was pronounced dead by Orange County Fire Rescue officials. Dieulus Fields is opening a restaurant in the same plaza as the Happy Place Sports Bar here in Orange County. He said the recent crime there is frustrating. “What about the customers, what about the people out here, something like that has to be stopped or shut down?” said Fields. “If people are afraid to come to my business, how am I going to grow to pay the bills, pay the rent?” Sheriff’s office officials said investigators are reviewing surveillance video, and an investigation is ongoing. Peralta’s sister, Adarmari Peralta, was arrested at the scene on a charge of resisting an officer without violence. Peralta’s death marks the second fatal shooting at the bar since July. Deputies said Peralta was one of four people wounded in that shooting.

BONER CANDIDATE #3: YES, PRINCIPAL BROOKS…A REAL COMPLIMENT TO WOMEN’S WEEK.

A social media post on Monday night sparked an outcry from the public about a week-long event at Snow Canyon High School called, “Men’s Week.” The post by the person, who requested to remain anonymous, included photos of posters in the hallways of the school that read, “Friyay: Early Out + Pizza/Soda FORE MEN” and “It feels SO good to be a (word scribbled out) MAN” and “ENTER If you believe MEN are the Superior Gender.” A screen shot of a portion of the post read: “Local friends, I’m not okay with this. I’m speechless. I don’t understand how, in this day and age, a public, taxpayer-funded school administrator would think this is a good idea… These posters, among many others, with statements such as men are the superior gender, were complemented by an assembly to find the best man in the school through a wrestling competition in which kids bloodied themselves to be declared the best man. Meanwhile, boys get to go home early, get to be served exclusively at a special lunch counter, get to listen to the school principal (a man, in case you were uncertain) celebrate, in his words, ‘toxic masculinity’ while speaking derivatively of anyone who gets offended.” Myriad responses with comments on the posts and shares circulated the internet invoking a response from the high school principal, Warren Brooks. Brooks concluded the letter saying, “We hope that the parents and students of our Warrior family know that we are trying to foster an environment where all students will treat each other with kindness, acceptance and respect.”

ROUND TWO:

BONER CANDIDATE #1: FIGHTING DIRTY ON PROP TWO.

An anti-Proposition 2 group’s campaign in Utah County Tuesday led to complaints with police, because of how the group was spreading their message. Down the sidewalk from Lone Peak High School in Highland in the morning, and down the street from Skyridge High School in Lehi in the afternoon, a U-Haul box truck sat covered in banners headlined with “Mobile Pot Shop.” “Let’s get high,” one banner read. “Free samples. Gummies, brownies, drinks, hash oil,” stated the other banner. “No ID required, high school seniors over 18 with pain are welcome,” it continued. Inside, the group Truth About Prop 2, had set out literature with a message quite the opposite of those on the banners. “We want people to vote ‘no’ on Proposition 2,” chairman Ed Kennedy said. A table set up inside the box truck displayed packaged items that Kennedy said would be available at dispensaries, should Prop 2 pass. He indicated that he strategically parked the truck 600 feet away from the school. “What we are trying to get out, is to let families know how close a pot dispensary can be to a school,” he said. Kennedy said the signs on the outside were meant to add a “shock value.” “We just wanted to get their attention,” he said. “That’s what we were doing with this.”

BONER CANDIDATE #2: THIS IS HOW LOW THEY WILL GO.

A white supremacist website in Idaho is sending out an extremely racist robocall against Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. Voters in Florida received the robocall on Tuesday, and HuffPost obtained audio of the recording. Speaking in an exaggerated minstrel dialect, an actor pretends to be Gillum, saying: “Well hello there. I is the Negro Andrew Gillum, and I be asking you to make me governor of this here state of Florida.” Minstrel music plays in the background, and a monkey screeches occasionally to refer to Gillum, who is the mayor of Tallahassee.  The ad says Gillum’s health care plan will be quite cheap, because he’ll just give chicken feet to people as medicine. It talks about how Jewish people are going to vote for him, because Jews are “the ones that been putting Negroes in charge over the white folk, just like they done after the Civil War.” HuffPost reader Rusty Gordon noted that the music in the background of the ad appears to be from “Amos ‘n’ Andy,” the controversial ― and popular ― radio and television show that relied on racial stereotypesAt the end of the robocall, a disclaimer says it was paid for by The Road To Power, a white supremacist website and podcast based in Idaho that sent out a similar call against Gillum in August, when he was running in the Democratic primary. The group has been linked to racist robocalls in Virginia, Oregon, California, Idaho, Iowa and Pennsylvania

BONER CANDIDATE #3: PANTY STUFFER!

The Brooklyn sergeant accused of stuffing her dirty panties into an underling’s mouth called his penis small — and subjected him to a raunchy rant about her wild, dildo-centric sex life, according to a complaint. Sgt. Ann Marie Guerra, 38, allegedly humiliated Detective Victor Falcon by telling him that a female love interest likely rejected him because he was lacking downstairs, according to a complaint filed with the NYPD Equal Employment Opportunity Office. “Sgt. Guerra stated to me that if the girl didn’t call me back, it is because I had a little d–k,” he said in the complaint. Guerra — who allegedly shoved her undies into the detective’s mouth after he griped about her leaving them scattered around a unisex bathroom at the stationhouse — also bombarded him with crude tales about her own sexual conquests, according to the complaint. “Sgt. Guerra stated that she used a dildo on her husband during intercourse,” the complaint states. “On another occasion [she said] that she was home alone masturbating and her husband came home and tried to join and she said, ‘WTF this isn’t an invitation.’” Guerra, the second-in-command at the 72nd Precinct Detectives Squad in Sunset Park, allegedly flipped out and rubbed her panties on the detective’s face, then pushed them in his mouth on Oct. 7, according to the complaint, filed on Oct. 10.
