Karen Handel, the former executive with the Susan G. Komen foundation who did everything she could to defund Planned Parenthood and had it backfire on her big time, continues her mythical persecution tour and use the most bizarrely hyperbolic language in discussing the battle that she lost.
She claims she and Komen were the victim of an “unprecedented, premeditated, Mafia-style assault.” Really, Karen? Why not a lynching? Or a rape? Or a Holocaust? I mean, if you’re going to be ridiculous, go hog wild with it. The truth is that you did something dumb and got a furious public reaction to it. In the name of preventing breast cancer, you tried to eliminate funding for the organization that does more to provide cancer screening to women who otherwise would not have access to it than anyone else. And you lost in the court of public opinion. You weren’t “assaulted,” you were wrong and you lost your job over it. Get. The. Fuck. Over. It.
