An Editor Eats Her Own Words

An editor affiliated with Simon & Schuster tried to stifle a book proposal that criticizes the Obama administration.
NEW YORK – An editor who wrote a controversial email explaining she rejected a proposal to publish a book by the platoon mates of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on political grounds has been dismissed, according to her company.
Story here.

This is a short bio of the moonbat.

As publisher and founder of Atria Books, Judith has ultimate responsibility for all the editorial, publishing, and marketing activities of the Atria imprint. Judith believes in creating books that are physically beautiful and that can help to shape the culture in positive, constructive ways. She was the guiding force behind the publishing of the international phenomenon The Secret by Rhonda Byrne (more than 16 million copies sold). Judith is an industry leader in adopting new technologies and developing innovative marketing strategies.

Yep, she just developed another very innovative marketing strategy - she got her ass fired.

The soldiers who knew Bergdahl best speak out:
"There was no way we were going to sit down and be quiet while Obama was calling him a war hero," said Evan Buetow, Bergdahl's former team leader, in an interview with Yahoo News. "We're just trying to tell the truth. It's not my fault this would make Obama look bad."

"We didn't politicize this," added Cody Full, Bergdahl's former roommate. "They brought his parents out at a White House Rose Garden ceremony and presented him as a hero. … Why wouldn't you just have a quiet press release? Why do you have to have a big parade? You don't do that for the parents who have kids who have died in Afghanistan."
I doubt there's time but I hope this book comes out before the November elections.

And I wish the libtards cared about the issues, let alone had the capacity to understand them.

The gate-keepers in publishing are desperately trying to hold on to that power and are being crushed. Amazon, oddly, is pushing that front hard and heavy, and so far, winning. This is just a skirmish, but a win, to a degree. Time is an enemy as well. I'm not sure when communists sorts invaded and took power. My guess is it was shortly after, and through, the academic invasion. It's how they got their hands on politicians, too.

One war at a time, I think... there might be a chance. The family is the primal war, but so few are making them. Has to do with critical mass, momentum, impetus... Actually, the economic collapse and threat to the dollar, all "dollars", and wealth itself, is turning out to be a boon for us in this.

Kid,

I think they quit trying when they tried to be all inclusive. Those who couldn't understand, in order to be included... the choice was simple. Either try to understand, or give up and include. Multiculturalism won out against reason, logic, and believing in a difference between right and wrong, good and bad.

Progressives stick to their standards, especially when they have none. That's why they're wrong on every decision and every issue.

Doom - I think it was through the academics, the colleges and universities, that the initial impetus was gained. Once you brainwash a generation, you're in.

Attended a very liberal university in the late sixties, thought the liberals were just a PITA; being young and dumb I didn't recognize it for the strategy that it was.

Doom, they can't think so all they have left is feelings. Nothing more than feelings. And stupidity.

Euripides - and they never give up. They're like a really stubborn yeast infection.
