Exclusive video of RFK Jr.’s fourth wedding

Junior has tied the knot yet again, vowing that this time he really, really means that bit about fidelity.

FWIW’s trained, professional cameramen have obtained exclusive footage of Mr. Kennedy’s first post-marital date with the maid of honor, and present it here for your approval.

(UPDATE: From the comments):

The NYT wedding section has a glowing story about the couple, calling Mr. Kennedy a widower. I dropped the newspaper and gagged. When the wife you left because you needed more sex from strangers and who you were determined to destroy emotionally kills herself, he’s a sympathetic widower? Holy shit. Mary’s family must be grievously pained.

U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner: college students must have their speech curtailed by their elders

The brain is still not-fully formed at 21, says Civil Rights Commissioner Michael Yaki (UC Berkeley, Yale Law)  “The science is settled.”

A Democrat on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission has urged campus restrictions on First Amendment-protected speech because, he believes, the still-developing brains of college students cannot properly process certain dangerous ideas.

The civil rights commissioner is Michael Yaki, a former senior adviser to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Yaki also wants to turn Miss America-type pageants into campus speech crimes. He expressed his belief in the unacceptable dangers of “a situation involving women” in which they “parade around in skimpy clothing and turn in some show or something.”

“I mean where do you think you can, that the university can’t deal with ensuring the route it has environment that is not oppressive or hostile because obviously a campus, especially certain types of campuses where there’s a lot of — where — that are geographically compact, that have a lot of working and living situations in a close area to create a campus atmosphere,” the language-addled law school graduate stuttered. “Doesn’t that gravitate toward having greater ability to proscribe certain types of conduct that have the ability to escalate beyond what anyone would consider to be reasonable or acceptable?”

“It has to do with science. More and more, the vast majority, in fact — I think — overall in bodies of science is that young people, not just K through 12 but also between the ages of 16 to 20, 21 is where the brain is still in a stage of development.”

“The juvenile or adolescent or young adult brain processes information” in ways that are “vastly different from the way that we adults do.” Consequently, he proclaimed, “when we sit back and talk about what is right or wrong in terms of First Amendment jurisprudence from a reasonable person’s standpoint, we are really not looking into the same referential viewpoint.

“There are very good and compelling reasons why broader policies and prohibitions on conduct in activities and in some instances speech are acceptable on a college campus level that might not be acceptable say in an adult work environment or in an adult situation,” he said.

Attorney Yaki, a former San Francisco supervisor as well as Congressional aide, is currently being sued by that city for illegal lobbying on behalf of a business client. Perhaps he also represents a muzzle manufacturer, which might explain his bizarre understanding of  the First Amendment . On the other hand, an education at Berkeley and Yale Law, plus service under Nancy Pelosi, may be all the explanation needed.

It’s my increasing conviction that the human sex drive produces the oddest behavior of all the instincts

 

Forced to toe the line

Teacher placed on probation after being caught sniffing school children’s smelly feet.

A primary school teacher who sniffed and tickled children’s feet to get a kick walked free from court with a suspended sentence.

Martyne Airey, 51, made children play a game of ‘sniff and tickle’ where they had to take their shoes off and pick a card from a deck.

The court heard that depending on which card was picked he would then smell or tickle their soles, getting a sexual thrill out of sniffing sweaty feet in particular.

After Airey was arrested, police found a voice recorder in his bedroom featuring a young boy reading a story about a woman who had been kidnapped, bound, gagged and was wearing dirty socks.

Airey, who had worked as a teacher for around 18 years before he was suspended, pleaded guilty to eight counts of sexual assault on a child under 13 at Preston Crown Court.

Placing Airey on a two-year supervision order, Judge Newell said: ‘I can fully understand why any reasonable parent would feel affronted and distressed by what you, a teacher, have done to their children.

‘Parents place great trust in teachers. They expect them to be looked after.

‘You abused that trust and it is a high degree of trust.’

In Airey’s defence, Tina Landale said her client was the carer for his elderly mother and brother.

‘Mr Airey sits before you a man with a reputation in tatters,’ she said.

‘He is ashamed of himself. He is disgraced and feels a great sense of revulsion as to what has happened.

‘He cannot really explain how he let himself become involved in this except to say that he enjoyed his teaching career, enjoyed the contact with the children.

And that’s all we need to know

 

I see London, I see France...

I see London, I see France…

Tourists at Grand Canyon lure tiny squirrel to the precipice, kick it to its death.

A man has been caught on camera kicking a tiny squirrel off the edge of the Grand Canyon.

The cruel clip sees two men, believed to be French, in boxer shorts and straw hats on the canyon, one appearing to be laying out treats for a squirrel running around his feet. The man lays out a trail towards the canyon, goes to put on his shoe, and as the fluffy rodent gets close to the edge to get its paws on the treats, he kicks it off the cliff.

The 15-second video was uploaded to YouTube by a user claiming he was only just a witness and had no part in the evil joke. ‘I did not realize what was happening until it was too late,’ Jonthan Hildebrand wrote in his defence. ‘I do not know who they are. All I know is that they were French.’

Underpants? Cowards? Of course they’re French.
