WORCESTER, Mass. — A Massachusetts beauty queen has given up her crown due to a joke about the #MeToo movement.
NBC 10 Boston reports Maude Gorman resigned on Saturday as Miss Plymouth County for the Miss Massachusetts Miss America Organization after an emcee made a joke about the women’s movement on stage.
During the event last week, the host did a skit with someone portraying God. She asks why Miss America officials would get rid of the swimsuit competition, then the person holds up a sign reading “#MeToo.”
Gorman, who is a survivor of sexual assault, says mocking a movement that empowers survivors is “inappropriate” especially by a “women’s empowerment organization.”
The Miss Massachusetts MAO posted an apology on its Facebook page saying the skit was not in the script or approved by the board.

Here is an article illustrating the skewed values of our LIE-beral overlords. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Miss World goes where PM fears.

Canada’s miss on a mission is shaking up the Miss World Pageant, tackling China over human rights abuses. She is doing Canada proud.

She’s got more cojones than our prime minister.

If Justin Trudeau is China’s patsy, Anastasia Lin, 26, of Scarborough, is its pest.

“China intimidates and threatens,” she told me as she prepared for the pageant, Sunday in Washington D.C.

You can’t blame China, really, for those tactics. They seem to be working on Team Trudeau.

When Beijing bigwig Wang Yi tossed a tantrum because some journo asked about human rights, his wussy counterpart, foreign minister Stephane Dion, reacted like he had a mouthful of marshmallows.

Justin, meanwhile, cozies up to Chinese billionaires at Liberal fundraisers. The PM claims he’s always raising human rights issues — tough to do while scarfing down caviar.

(A collection of Chinese Communist bankers have just been given permission to open a Cdn bank branch- shortly after one of those rather notorious “pay for access meet and greet” deals so beloved of LIE-berals- and isnt it odd that immediately after the meet and greet the Chinese bankers contributed a million dollars to a Trudope family charitable fund- and then GOT their go ahead for the new bank?)

Has anyone ever actually seen Trudeau Junior collar a commie, so to speak, over abuse of prisoners of conscience, over organ harvest, over such trifles as freedom of the press, association, expression and religion?

Perhaps he’s leaving it to Ms. Lin. Abandoning her to the Beijing bullies, in other words.

“I feel vulnerable,” she recently told me of her government’s feeble stance. “It’s me against the world.”

Kowtowing to bullies never works. They eat your lunch.

Our miss on a mission knows the ire of the People’s Republic. She was Miss World Canada 2015, too, but was barred from competing at the international show by its host country last year. You guessed it. China.

Why the cold shoulder? Because Lin, all 5-foot-6 of her, is a fearless critic of China’s abuses, including reports of state prisoners slaughtered for the organ trade, especially her fellow Falun Gong followers.

“I wanted to be a voice for the voiceless,” she told me, “but I didn’t understand how hard that is.” Even this week at the pageant itself, nestled in the capital of the free world.

A friend of hers tells me Anastasia got a message from her father, still in China, saying “he couldn’t take it anymore.”

Anastasia says Chinese authorities have squeezed her dad’s business relentlessly since she hit headlines last year, and refused him a travel permit for the pageant.

Miss World brass have told her to keep a lid on during the pageant. As an ex-Miss Universe judge, I know how sticky pageant protocol can be.

Why shun publicity, when the Miss World motto is Beauty With a Purpose? Or does the long arm of Beijing reach even a beauty pageant stage?

Lin did manage one interview, with Associated Press, with the same message she gave me last month.

“Everybody is tied economically with China,” she told AP. “China’s soft power is so huge that no one really dares to speak up.”

I hope she wins Sunday. I hope she can stare down China while wearing a sash that says Miss World.

She could teach our prime minister a thing or two.

Strobel’s column usually runs Monday to Friday.

So Hoid- you are telling us that the reason Our idiot Boy Justin wants so many women in parliament is so they can travel in packs and be safe from Kent Hehr???


Or is it because Our idiot Boy finds it easier to push women around while running through parliament shouting "get the Fcuk out of my way" while demonstrating his impatience with the democratic process??


Or maybe he just enjoys having those "positive experiences" with his interactions with women who owe their jobs and authority to him?



You know the experiences I mean- things like the Kokanee Grope which Our Hypocrite Boy has conveniently forgotten till the outraged victim explained her "negative experience" of her encounter with Our idiot Boy Justin!


LIE-berals too often forget they live in all glass houses!!!!!
