DC Attorney General figures out new way to squeeze money out of a company
Files major lawsuit only a moron would allow to see the light of day in a court room; Fronts for a new theory of law: damage by remote implication; He should be pumping gas in the desert
Welcome to a new foul wrinkle on social justice.
Karl Racine, the District of Columbia Attorney General, has filed a “consumer protection” civil suit against the Washington Commanders NFL team.
I’ll boil it down for you. The Commanders have admitted to a “toxic workplace.” Which means sexual misconduct by male employees against female employees.
Apparently, team executives and owner Dan Snyder tried, for a time, to cover all this up, and lied about it.
So AG Racine thinks he can sue the team for, get a load of this, keeping the DC community and ticketholders in the dark about what was going on.
O the horror. O the negative impact.
Some DC resident living on food stamps and welfare in Ward 8 is in pain because the Commanders didn’t tell him what was happening behind closed doors in their offices?
Racine, promoting this new theory of justice, should be thinking about other matters. For example, if negative impact is his sword, what about gang shooters in Washington DC who kill people, make streets unsafe, and sell lethal drugs to children, whom they also recruit?
That sounds like negative impact on the community to me.
Although maybe the gang members have been twisted into becoming killers because the Commanders never told them that male team employees were making unwanted advances on female employees.
And how about Racine’s prosecutors, and associated judges, who’ve been letting violent criminals walk on no bail? Are there such instances? If so, that sounds like negative impact on the wider community.
Keep in mind that any Commander female employee can obtain counsel and file an individual law suit against the team. That’s the way it’s done. An individual seeks compensation for wrongdoing.
But no. Racine wants to go big and wide. He wants to make $$ on a presumed ripple effect.
He’s Mr. Implication.
I bring this up because Racine is a symptom of the culture of…what shall I call it…making horseshit connections.
For instance, the INCITEMENT hustle. Some blogger posts a piece about the evil government (where in the world did he get that idea?) and a guy who lives 1000 miles away reads it (among dozens of other articles) and six months later shoots up a school; and the DHS claims there is a connection. The blogger is guilty. He might be a domestic terrorist.
He might be part of a network of disinfo specialists—“they all read each other’s stuff.” They’re all connected.
Here’s another one. The plight of people who live in inner cities can be laid at the door of…let’s see…white racists. And guess what? It turns out that all white people are racists.
The culture of making horseshit connections.
And everybody knows Van Gogh was working for a big corporation spewing CO2 into the atmosphere. So throw tomato soup on one of his paintings.
And because Alex Jones made certain remarks about the Sandy Hook shooting, demand he pay more than the GDP of 40 countries.
Implication, implication. That con expands every day.
Back to AG Racine. You see, a ticketholder sitting the stands on a Sunday afternoon watching the Commanders lose (again) is, without his knowledge, SUFFERING, because the team hasn’t told him that male employees are making unwanted moves on female employees.
Yeah, sure. That makes sense. It might make perfect sense if you’re a graduate of the DC public school system. Which brings up another point. Have teachers been passing students from grade to grade when those students are learning next to nothing? That also sounds like negative impact on the community. So sue the teachers.
Sue the teachers, the gang members, the prosecutors and judges.
If you’re going to go for implication, sue the Congress for creating a toxic environment in DC.
If the Commanders’ lawyers had real balls, they’d claim this is nothing more than a nuisance lawsuit filed by a public nuisance, AG Racine. They’d point out what I’m pointing out here. According to Racine’s new and improved theory of damages, millions of people could sue millions of other people. Because we all live on the same planet and therefore we’re all connected, just as Nature intended and PBS keeps reminding us.
It’s all one Web, everything is everything, and if the State employs you as a prosecutor, you can pick out somebody with deep pockets and run him through the meat grinder.
You can home in on anyone and make him a target.
AG Racine, the Washington football team’s lack of transparency is the least of DC’s worries. Your idea of social justice and consumer protection is a loony fantasy any reasonable judge would throw out of court. As luck would have it, there’s an ample supply of judges just as deranged as you are.
But hey. I understand you’re leaving your job and going back into the private sector. I’m looking for a lawyer.
I’m planning to sue Putin, because in certain key ways he’s a political descendant of the Czar, whose cruel actions forced my grandparents to flee from Russia to the Bronx. Causes and effects rolled on inevitably from there, to a critical moment when I was enrolled in Sunday School; the extreme boredom I endured on Sundays negatively impacted my childhood. As damages, I’m seeking delivery of the preserved corpse of Vladimir Lenin, which has been on public display since 1924, at Mavzoley Lenina, in Moscow. On July 4, 2023, I plan to dump it from a barge into the Hudson River, as a political statement.
Want a gig, Racine? We’ll make headlines.
