Wacky Walter Bird and Worcester Magazine can’t stop reaching all-time lows, especially on social media. In today’s episode of “Let’s watch Wacky Walter completely embarrass the brand he represents,” he decided to pose this brilliant question to WoMag’s Facebook followers:
Oh sweet baby Jesus.
Should a rape victim be held responsible if he or she engaged in risky behavior before the attack?”Walter Bird voluntarily put that on the Internet for everyone to see. As if this is some sort of toss up question. Hey Walter, rape is kind of a sensitive topic, especially when everyone knows that a man is writing that question. Because no woman would ever write that. The reaction from the masses was as expected:
Love the backtracking. So Wacky Walter poses this question, but he just wants to let you know after it blows up in his face that he thinks the answer is “no.” And the only reason he posed this question is because there are “people out there” who think the victim is at fault. Don’t you get it? This was all just a trap that Wacky Walter set up to bait rape apologists into commenting on WoMag’s page. Then every time someone comments, more and more people are attracted to the page and hit the like button. It’s a great marketing scheme, as long as you’re cool with marketing yourself to rape apologists.
I love how Wacky Walter says, “we.” As if he polled all the employees/contributors (including women like Janice Harvey) of WoMag and they came to this consensus. Newsflash Walter – no normal person thinks the victim is at fault if she was maliciously raped. The guy who did it had a trial and got 20 years in prison. Everyone with a brain knows that WPI is just doing this because they don’t wanna get sued. If you were smart you would’ve framed the question as follows:
Should WPI be held responsible for a rape that occurs to one of their students in a foreign country, if it occurred on a university leased apartment?”
That could actually be debated. But instead he asked if the victim should be held “responsible.”
Then some of Turtleboy’s world famous hippies started showing up and shitting on poor Wacky Walter:
Ahh yes, Jordan and Cara Berg Powers.
They are definitely fit to talk about what is and isn’t shameful. These two geniuses were the leaders of the first of many really successful Turtleboy boycotts. They obviously hate Turtleboy Sports because they’re fascist naniburgers, but when Jordan Berg Powers made up a lie about his 2-year old daughter, THAT was even more shameful than what Wacky Walter did:
You may remember that we offered to completely shut down our blog if he could point out where we called his 2 year old daughter a “white piece of shit”
His response was the classic response you get from a liar who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar:
Still waiting on that proof JBP. The offer stands – provide it and it we will shut down the blog forever. But please, tell me some more about what you consider to be “shameful.” Because most rational people believe that intentionally bringing your innocent daughter into a pissing match with a blogger you don’t agree with, is rather shameful.
His wife Cara isn’t much better. She once harassed and bullied a mother and young daughter in the grocery store for wearing “I Am Turtleboy” t-shirts. But her support for Boston University professor Saida Grundy, a woman who openly mocked a rape victim because she happened to be white, was one of the most disgusting things that has ever happened on the Internet:
In a Facebook comment thread in February, an exchange took place between Grundy and Meghan Chamberlin, a rape survivor. The thread—appearing on the profile of Frank William Miller Junior, a marketing designer for Complex magazine and co-founder of the wildly popular site “Rappers I Know,” which helped foster the careers of Jay Electronica, Danny Brown, and Talib Kweli—linked to an op-ed from The Grio, an African-American-interest news and opinion site, titled “Dear Patricia Arquette: Blacks and gays owe white women nothing.”
“I LITERALLY cry and lose sleep over this,” Chamberlin commented, adding that she had been raped as a child. “What this article did was tell me that I’m not aloud [sic] to ask for help… Because I am a WHITE woman… So when I read this article… you do understand what that does to me, right? It kills me…”
“’I literally cry’…. While we literally die,” Grundy allegedly responded, linking to an op-ed on RH Reality Check, titled “Patricia Arquette’s Spectacular Intersectionality Fail.” “Try this article. A white woman explaining this issue to other white women… who manages NOT to cry while doing it!”
Once again, a BU professor (still employed after this) openly mocked a rape victim, and called her rape “white girl tears.” And this is what Cara Berg Powers did to show her support:
“I stand with Saida.” She stands with a woman who laughed in the face of a rape survivor, yet here she is ripping into dumb ol’ Wacky Walter because he’s not good at the Internet.
And that’s what this all boils down to. Wacky Walter isn’t a bad guy. He’s just bad at the Internet. And if he were smart he would hand over control of WoMag’s social media to someone like Tom Quinn who won’t make a complete mockery of the brand he represents. I mean, just look at some of the stuff he’s been sharing (notice where all the links are coming from):
All he’s doing is taking his competitor’s articles, sharing them on HIS company’s Facebook page, and asking, “what do you guys think about this?” He is driving readership towards his competition. Because Worcester Magazine apparently does not create content anymore. It’s just a free magazine that Wacky Walter uses to charge local businesses and arm and a leg not to be seen.
Then there was that time Wacky Walter had a complete meltdown on the WoMag Facebook page:
Good God, make it stop. So yea, Wacky Walter screwed up. Big deal. He obviously doesn’t know any better. It’s just funny how complete hypocrites like Cara and Jordan Berg-Powers think they’re above him because he makes dumb mistakes like this. We’d keep commenting on WoMag’s Facebook page but Wacky Walter reported our user name (Clarence Woods Emerson III) and now it’s banned from Facebook.
P.S. Clarence Woods Emerson IV coming soon.
