Cancel Culture strikes again!

Poor Mary Nicosia. She’s a victim. A wealthy, white victim of racism.

Nicosia spent much of her time at the mic complaining about the cruelty of cancel culture, saying she’s suffered since Jones announced his suit.

The mom teared up about the “unbearable pain” caused to her and her family by the lawsuit by Jones, noting how she was suspended from the board of the Landmark Society of Western New York.

“To see our entire world collapse in a matter of hours was bewildering, it was like a bad dream,” she complained.

Incomprehensible! How could this happen? She just held a Juneteenth party for her rich white friends with buckets of fried chicken and bottles of Hennessy — oh no, that has nothing to do with stereotypes — and then, while explaining herself, it’s revealed that she runs a horribly racist Twitter “parody account”. Ooops. But no, she doesn’t have a racist bone in her body!

I’d love to hear what this crap is “parodying”.

Oh. Her lawyer claims it was about making fun of liberals.

Nicosia’s lawyer, Corey Hogan, displayed the invitation for the party at the presser in an effort to absolve his client of racism, saying it was called the “1st annual Liberal Smashin Splish Splash Pool Party.”

Hogan insisted it was intended to mock liberals, and was about politics, not race, and claimed the KFC buckets were not intended to hold meaning. Most of the decorations, he said, were meant to be “liberal bashing.”

Her husband, a dentist, is also complaining that he was victimized.

Nicosia’s husband, Dr. Nicholas Nicosia, also spoke, insisting that “there’s been nothing with any interaction with us that would even suggest that we’re racist.”

Instead, he complained, it was “cancel culture” — calling it “an organized, malicious, well-orchestrated, politically charged attack” motivated in part because they were seen as a “snooty couple that lives in a big mansion.”

“It took me 32 years to build my reputation, and less than two hours to destroy it,” he sniffed.

I think he was carefully crafting a reputation that, once it was exposed outside their little bubble of entitlement and privilege, was seen to be hateful and horrible. It wasn’t cancel culture that brought it down, he’d just spent 32 oblivious years building a rotten life.

How sad. She coulda been another Libs of TikTok.

    Did they portray n**gers eating watermelons, too? You know, to own liberals. And let us not forget people with prominent noses financing the libs.

    Blatantly racist people like these have been around as long as I can remember. But for a while it seemed there were enough of us that would at least shoot them disgusted glances that they generally kept it under covers. Now due to several factors (social media silos, Trump, et al), they are out more frequently in the light of day. The disinfectant of sunlight seems to be getting less effective, alas.

    Well, they could try being less snooty…

    With a name like Nicosia I would guess his ancestors came from someplace like Greece or Turkey. He might want to check with the other local racists to see if they actually consider him white or not.

  5. Akira MacKenzie says

    Fried chicken, watermelon, collard greens, Henesey… Yes all these are all stereotypically liberal foods.

    Do these vile scuts think we’re stupid?

  6. birgerjohansson says

    Naah, being greek he is racially like people from Turkey and the Levant, at least in the eyes of hardcore aryans.

    @5, sounds more like a summertime dinner at my house.
    Well, other than the Hennessy. Don’t really care for that, but the rest are regular items on my table.

  8. birgerjohansson says

    John Cleese has said some dumb things over the years, but in this interview about the British press he is delightful, like when telling how he shut down that pompous twit Piers Morgan (a kind of British Tucker Carlson).
    And unlike the Brexicists he has not a racist bone in him. (the “gutter press” cheerfully uses racism whenever it gets more readers)
    “The British press are completely unscrupulous”

  9. Doc Bill says

    Hint: If the words, “I don’t have a racist bone in my body,” drop out of your pie hole, you be racist!

  10. birgerjohansson says

    He has a poor record in regard to a libertarian view of speech, but I have never heard him support the tory disdain for immigrants.

  11. ardipithecus says

    “I don’t have a racist bone in my body”.

    “Fine. It’s not your bones I’m worried about, it’s your attitude and belief system. I note you didn’t mention those!”

  12. moarscienceplz says

    “sounds more like a summertime dinner at my house.”
    Yep. I’ve never gotten the point of putting people down by sneering at their food. To me it sounds like, “Haha, look at those ridiculous people! Eating stuff that … is … absolutely … DELICIOUS!”
    Sure, sometimes foods are outside our comfort zones. I used to hate the slightest whiff of anchovies anywhere near my food, but now I know that they are absolute umami bombs and I love recipes that use them. And Chinese people apparently love chicken feet. I’ve never had them, and I know that I am not as excited by foods with a lot of gelatin in them as some people are, but I would definitely try them, and I would never sneer at somebody that does like them.

  13. lakitha tolbert says

    Because in the US it’s not about the deliciousness of the food. Food can also be a class/race indicator. The reason it’s an indicator for Blackness isn’t because white people don’t eat it (they very much love watermelon too) but because America is virulently anti-Black and because a lot of formerly enslaved could only make any real profit as sharecroppers who grew watermelon, and historically the enslaved were only ever allowed to eat certain foods (mostly the ones white people couldn’t see any use for like collard greens, and certain chicken parts like gizzards, for example.)

    Yeah these things taste great to a lot of people, but association with Blackness seems to be enough for racists to denigrate anything, even things they actually enjoy.

  14. keithb says

    If it was really a “make fun of liberals” event, they should have served belgian endive.

  15. birgerjohansson says

    Oh shit.
    While looking for race-related content I found a video about Bill Maher and student debt.
    Student debt is to no small extent connected with the ability of young black people escaping poverty through education. So let’s see what Maher has to say.

  16. birgerjohansson says

    The opposite of cancel-worthy!
    Hillary Clinton has shared a photo of herself dancing in a salsa bar in solidarity with Finland’s prime minister.

    (.Not race-related, but imagine if a black woman politician with a major position in national politics had been pictured dancing, what Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity would say )

    ““It took me 32 years to build my reputation, and less than two hours to destroy it,” he sniffed.”
    Can’t imagine why people wouldn’t want to go to a Nazi dentist for tooth extraction…

    @4.6 Pretty sure Lebanese and Turks don’t consider Greeks to be “people like them”. And vice versa.
    But yes, I’m curious too, as to whether the alt right considers them “white”.

    @16 No, arugula! Have you seen the price of arugula lately?

    @17 If people really want to get rich, learn a trade. Lots of white collar jobs are being outsourced but good luck outsourcing that plumbing or welding job. Also, given that the skilled labor set is graying–rapidly–there’s plenty of opportunity for job growth.
    Not the greatest link, but it does have a link to the original WSJ article, which unfortunately, is behind a paywall.
    BTW, the guy in the article, is 24, makes $140K a year and is dyslexic.
    Before you go “well, that’s just one guy” I’d like to point out that my neighbor owned a cesspool cleaning/pumping business and was wealthier that his immediate neighbor, who was a professor of mechanical engineering at the local state university.
    Most of the people who are millionaires have boring businesses like pool service, cesspool service, are contractors/plumbers/electricians and the like.
    The real problem is paying for trade school, because you can get a loan for college but not for trade school.

    …association with Blackness seems to be enough for racists to denigrate anything, even things they actually enjoy.

    And it’s not just food either, it’s public parks, schools and other facilities that whites were perfectly happy to fund with their taxes…until black people were allowed to partake of said facilities, at which time the whites started screaming about taxes and “waste, fraud and abuse.”

  19. unclefrogy says

    if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it just might be a duck.
    they can’t be racist because the truth is that other races exist and are inferior to their race.
