Some of you may remember a story a few weeks back about the school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (liberal stomping ground) fighting to keep their school from moving which would entail accepting kids from nearby projects. The hypocrisy is staggering especially when you discover the very upstanding “proponent for immigrants” Samantha Bee and her husband are among those liberal, rich white opponents.



Jason Jones is not only a former "correspondent" for the left-wing Daily Show, he is also husband to Samantha Bee, one of the leftist leaders of the so-called Resistance Movement against President Trump. Oh, and Jones doesn’t want the city of New York to move his children's school to a location that would make it more accessible to poor, black kids.




Samantha Bee's husband is not only fighting this move, the former correspondent is — get this — urging parents who agree with him not to talk to the media: One P.S. 452 parent speaking out against the move is comedian and former Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones, who’s married to Samantha Bee. "To portray any opposition as classist or racist is as bad as it can get," Jones told WNYC. And elsewhere: "We are not divided,” he said at a public hearing about the proposal, “we are absolutely united in wanting what's best for our children," then encouraged fellow parents not to talk to the press about the controversy.


But it’s okay, they are not racists, they just want what’s best for their kids - but not really “other people’s kids” - at least not when it affects them. AND if they don’t talk about it no one will know - see how that works.

Feckless.

Fake news, chiefly because this is from 2016, and secondly a large part of his quote has been not so surprisingly omitted.

Yep, Snopes says so but read and fact check for yourself...

Regardless of when he said it, he was spot on in saying "to portray any opposition as classist or racist is as bad as it can get". I agree 100 percent. That's about as bad as it can get...

This might reach the front page by morning. As long as it strokes certain chords it doesn't matter whether it's fake news or not, ATS will eat it up.

Well, it seems like fact checking is dead. When will ATS change its motto from 'Deny Ignorance' to 'Come Engage in Partisan Opinion Throwing'.

The issue has supposedly just been resolved, but the move has not actually happened yet. It Began in 2016, but has been fought by the parents - like Ms. Bee and her husband since then. They are against it but, as stated in the article, have kept their involvement on the down low.

Plans are just now moving forward.

Progressives love minorities as long as they can be used for political gain...

...unless those same minorities become NIMBYs...

They have made little attempt to conceal their double standards, because the MSM always comes to their rescue.

Samantha Bee is a paid progressive trash talker, nothing more. She is far more offensive, than she is funny.

I compare her show to that bile that you puke up when your stomach is otherwise empty...

If you lived in NYC you wouldn't want your kids school to move 16 blocks either. In any direction.

The snopes article does NOT debunk the story - just says its old, which my post above points out that although true, does not refute the claims.

Really? We’re denying ignorance but relying on snopes, which has been proven over and over to have a bias? I live here!!

Besides, if you read the snopes article, it does NOT debunk the story at all!

I agree that you wouldn't, but the fact is that they're all about championing things that would create chaos in the schools other people work hard to get their kids into when more poor immigrant kids who are here illegally are brought into those schools while at the same time working hard to keep kids like that out of the schools of their own kids.

As a parent, I totally get it, but that doesn't keep me from calling them hypocrites.

It's fine for my son to get schooled alongside illegal immigrant children who can't speak English, but it's not OK at all for their kids because they're rich enough to make sure they can afford a district well away from all that.

That's the real issue. Their advocacy always victimizes others, and when we cry foul, they call us racist for it. But they're totally not racist when it happens to them and they object for the same reasons all the rest of us do.

Did you take a good look at that Snopes article? It clearly says that Jason Jones was involved in this, and even has an audio clip of him at the public hearing. But because this happened in 2016 it's FALSE because it's not happening "right now".

I mean... is this literally the state of fact checking?

I think all forum post titles should begin with: FWD:FWD:FWD:FWD: because they all sound like the emails my crazy uncle sends me.

It's only racist if conservatives do it, remember? If we found out that Sean Hannity was at that meeting in 2016, I guarantee Snopes wouldn't be labeling it as false and there would be boycotts and calls for his resignation from every liberal media outlet.

That's just classist white privilege and runs counter to their white guilt socialist ideals.

What about the poor black kids who don't have the opportunity to attend a decent school? Screw them right?

This isnt fake news at all, this is old news that has since become even more relevant.

Those calling this fake news or dismissing it as a non event need to have a really long hard look at themselves as do the Bee family.

Of course this is a terrible idea and parents should be opposed, forced diversity for the sake of diversity is a stupid idea and suddenly moving an underperforming student from one school to another is going to do nothing for that child.
They need to see that the situation at their school is a microcosmic example of what they are trying to do by pushing their open borders and "we're all the same" fairytale nonsense on their country

The full text for the biased, blind peanuts...


I read the newspaper for some reason, I can’t believe it’s still around, but it disheartens me to wake up in the morning and see that the Upper West side is divided. We are not divided, we are absolutely united in wanting what’s best for our children. Whether that means a bigger place for our children to learn, or wanting to keep it here, we are all united in wanting what’s best for them.

That said. When you scroll down and you read rhetoric from some parents that suggests that you are opposed to this move ‘those against this idea are terrified of what it would look like if the school were to be in an area by the projects’ is dishonest at best and slanderous at worst.

So I urge you A, to stop talking to the press. This is a private matter, I think, from our community. This story doesn’t exist without your quotes.

And this goes for both sides too. Because the other quote is just insane from the other side, suggesting that opposing the relocation, that a high-performing school like this could not move to a (inaudible) poor area and not change, shows very little respect for these incredible teachers.

So just be mindful of when you speak, if you’re going to speak to the press, because slandering or saying anything negative about this teaching staff is wrong. And, conversely, painting any opposition as classist or racist is about as bad as it can get.


Please show where he doesn't want the school moved due to "poor black kids"....

Typical blind right winger shooting their mouth off without thinking..

I never said he wasn't there.

Actually, no one did.

Just you in your attempt at muddying the waters.
