Miss America board members revolt against its current head

Almost missed this interesting news about the fallout Gretchen Carlson caused after she nixed the bikini contest at the Miss America pageant (via Breitbart):
Kate Shindle (now president of the Actors’ Equity Association), Laura Kaeppler Fleiss (who married “Bachelor” whiz Mike Fleiss), Jennifer Vaden Barth and Valerie Crooker Clemens posted a message to a private Facebook group claiming that Miss America’s account of their departures was inaccurate.

Barth and Clemens claimed, ‘Neither of us resigned voluntarily’ and that ‘pre-signed’ resignation letters they’d had as interim members were used.

Fleiss wrote, ‘I stepped away from a board that I felt had become incredibly toxic.’

Shindle added, ‘Many of us . . . ­expressed concern that we were expected to be a rubber-stamp board . . . I felt that our good-faith attempts to practice oversight were characterized as destructive, hostile and/or unappreciative.’
I hope this'll undermine the current directors, because they really screwed up, and if they don't like the swimsuit competitions, they should just leave and form their own pageant. And not cause more insults to the intellect.

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“There is yet a third strain of the current virus of anti-Semitism, this one even more difficult to diagnose. Its danger lies in its subtlety, its pervasiveness, and its acceptability at all levels of our society. This is a phenomenon familiar to all of us, yet difficult to articulate and expose: the singling out of Jewish institutions and especially Israel for special scrutiny, and the application of a double-standard to Jewish things and persons.

This phenomenon, which currently has no accepted name, assumes a variety of forms, but its most obvious manifestation is the special and often gloating attention paid by the media, [and] by intellectuals, and by the government to any deviation by Israel, no matter how trivial, from the highest norms of humans rights, civility, and sacrifice.

Though Israel may be deserving of criticism, what is missing is the comparable criticism of equal or greater violations by other countries and other groups.

This constant, often legitimate criticism of Israel for every one of it deviations, when coupled with the absence of legitimate criticism of others, creates the impression currently prevalent on university campuses and in the press that Israel is among the worst rights violators in the world.

We have all heard that phrase repeated many times. It is not true, but if it is repeated often enough, it takes on a reality of its own.”

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
