Tonya Harding is no hero
New York Post, by Maureen Callahan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/12/2018 2:17:29 PM

It’s hard to recall a second act in American life like Tonya Harding’s. She doesn’t deserve it. As recently as 2014 — the 20th anniversary of her Olympic rival Nancy Kerrigan’s kneecapping, carried out by Harding’s ex-husband and associates — the disgraced skater told TV Guide, “Whatever. It’s like, I’m done. Nobody wants to hear this crap anymore.” Fast-forward nearly four years, and this scandal has been retold — marketed, untruthfully, as a “true story” — in the Oscar-gunning film “I, Tonya.” Last Sunday, Harding was seated prominently at the Golden Globes, thanked by winner Allison Janney — who portrayed Harding’s mother LaVona

Nancy Kerrigan has no comment. Did you expect one?

Harding later admitted she was aware of the plot to cripple Kerrigan and had even instigated it. yet they honor her as a hero victim. Of course, by comparison to them, Harding is a Saint. These GD Democrats are absolutely despicable people.

This is a little complicated. Yes, and most importantly, Tonya Harding was guilty, period. She was also abused, from a dirt poor family, her mother totally used her, her husband was just as awful, and awful in the same way. But somehow, Tonya Harding became one of the greatest female figure skaters America has ever produced. Or at least that´s what Dick Button (remember him?) said during the months long investigation following the attack on Nancy Kerrigan. A neighbor who was a competitive figure skater mentioned and agreed with Button´s opinion, something about edges and the Tripe Axle. And somehow, at least it´s a story worth telling, not glamorizing, but telling.

I have new respect for Johnny Weir: “I am so over the glamorization of a villain simply because she was born on the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ While her upbringing may have been tragic, athletes come from all walks of life and succeed based on merit, not assault. I won’t applaud her and I stand for Nancy.”

The other victim here is Michelle Kwan. She was the alternate who would have replaced Harding if the Multnomah County DA would have had the guts to do his job and not let her lawyer bluff him. Because after the Olympics were over, he sure did his job surprisingly fast. So you knew the evidence was there. He was just spineless.

She was the biggest embarrassment I have ever witnessed at the Olympics. EVER Saw a photo of her with the article, and she looks so hard. Not a drop of class or graciousness in her soul.

If anyone wonders how psychopathic thinking works read this article in which Harding wonders why, just because she abetted in the attempted kneecapping of her skating rival, everybody makes HER out to be the bad guy.

#7 - All the athletic abilities and skill in the world means nothing if it is not backed up by character. No matter how poor you are that´s something that doesn´t cost a damn dime! Plenty of people have grown up dirt poor with character and morals. That´s not an excuse.

I was invited by friends to attend the performance one day after the attack, in Detroit. So I got to see Miss Tonya in person. She was awful. Took her at least 10 minutes to start her routine - the lights weren´t right, the laces on her skates weren[t right, I don´t remember how many false starts she made, but she was not impressive. I think she also fell at least once. It was very weird because we didn´t yet know her role in the attack.

At the same time, one of the friends who had invited me was from a fairly prominent Boston family and she had no love at all for Nancy Kerrigan, who had earned a reputation as a not so nice prima donna.

Still, I love watching figure skating competitions and performances. And wish I could go back to childhood and take skating lessons and learn to fly across the ice as the true athletes do.

I barely recall the incident during the scandals, but I do recall something of it as it was played out in the news, sport news and endless TV dramas.

The one thing I cannot reconcile is that figure skating is an extremely expensive athletic sport from the skates, costuming, cosmetics, hair, rink time, traveling, relocating, coaching, choreography and music, to name a few. How on earth can two supposedly "blue collar" families afford childhood skaters from a very young age to Olympic level? And do not state sponsorship as figure skating is as about lucrative in the sponsorship world as bob sledding, other than a Wheaties cereal box cover.

The poster above who says it´s complicated is right. It´s easy to say character doesn´t cost anything, but abuse can have devastating effects on a person, robbing them of even the chance to develop that character. it doesn´t change the facts, but some sort of thinking has to go into how you formulate your opinion of a person who has been abused, and then did bad things.

She will never be "normal." That is tragic. Also, everybody deserves a shot at redemption and forgiveness. She may not have earned it yet, but everybody deserves the chance.

Veni, vidi, vici. That’s what Trump would have tweeted en route to a weekend of golf at his courses in Scotland had he not forgotten his high school Latin. Traditional diplomat Nicholas Burns, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, says “The president treated the NATO allies almost with contempt.” Delete “almost” and Burns has it right. But the tone of Trump’s tweets and comments are best understood as the exasperation of this American president who wants to succeed where his predecessors failed—ending that part of the post-World War II settlement that disadvantages America. And if that means abandoning traditional diplomacy in

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Yesterday’s hearing on Capitol Hill featuring FBI agent Peter Strzok quickly turned into a political firefight among lawmakers, but overall it was a damning illustration of the toxic culture that exists within the Washington, D.C., beltway. At one point, Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy confronted the former investigator over some anti-Trump texts he had sent. In 2016, after FBI lawyer Lisa Page asked Strzok if Trump would ever become the president, his response was, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” Republican committee members read a number of Strzok’s vitriolic texts about Donald Trump and his supporters, and at one point

Hillary Clinton still thinks she is relevant. This week Hillary spoke in Pittsburg to the American Federation of Teachers. Since her 2016 lost to an utterly political outsider in President Trump, Hillary has not swayed far from the opportunity to make news headlines or receive a cool $250,000 just for giving her inept opinion on something. Now, she is trying to tell others what is American. During her speech, Clinton said that Trump is “trying to rip the heart out of America.” She went on to say that a test of a society is how we treat our most vulnerable, old

The venerable Washington Post, the newspaper that brought down a Republican president and spawned at least two Hollywood movies, a paper backed by the resources of the wealthiest man in America, sicced three reporters (including a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter) and six researchers on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. This fearsome team produced two exposes on the nominee revealing that — drum roll, please — Kavanaugh drinks Budweiser at his local pub and used a credit card to buy season tickets to his hometown baseball team. When NARAL, the multimillion-dollar abortion lobby, trained its resources on the man, they came up with

A man parked his motorcycle on the sidewalk Saturday morning, ruining the aesthetic of the last remaining Blockbuster in the continental United States. “You can’t park there,” general manager Sandi Harding told the man as he walked into the store in Bend, Ore. “People are trying to take pictures.” The man paused for a beat. There was confusion in his response. “Trying to take pictures?” Somehow he had missed the past decade, when Blockbuster the video rental behemoth became Blockbuster the fallen victim of modernity. In 2004, at the company’s peak, 9,000 Blockbuster outlets studded city blocks and suburban strip malls nationwide, a onetime indelible

Is abortion a sad and unfortunate reality — regrettable, as we are sometimes told, but often necessary — or is it a breezy nothingburger, completely “normal,” and something to be giddily celebrated like a last-minute NFL touchdown? For a long time, the abortion lobby has had difficulty deciding. This summer, it seems that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — and the rising feverish chatter surrounding the possible demise of Roe v. Wade — might just push the pro-abortion movement over the edge. By now perhaps you’ve seen the horror show cooked up by Michelle Wolf, the Netflix star best known for

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.
