Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: Serena and Bannon: Unite the Aggrieved

Posted on September 12, 2018

A Serena Williams tennis match in New York City brings out the aggrieved…those deeply sensitive, politically correct, and permanently pissed individuals ready, willing, and eager to get even for offenses real and imagined from time immemorial. They wait, expectantly, for a signal from Serena for something (anything) to happen that is not totally respectful of Serena’s womanhood, motherhood, and all around personhood so they can join with her to bring down their collective wrath on the disrespecting party…often a hapless male official who is doing his job but has had the bad luck of being on duty when Serena is in danger of losing a tennis match.

If Serena doesn’t win, somebody has to pay.

The braying mob was in full froth last Saturday Night. It wasn’t pretty. Serena lost in the Finals of the US Open and made a big stink. The “offending” umpire was strict but correct at every stage of the proceedings. Serena wasn’t having it. Shaking her finger at the umpire saying…”you will never work a match of mine for the rest of your life.” Implied message: “You are nothing; I am Women’s Sports; you do not exist.” The Sports Commentariat was cowed. The Serena Approved “position” required commentators to compliment Serena for showing “Class” in defeat. Most complied.

The question is: Are you going to believe Serena or your lying eyes?

Phew, got through that. Let’s relax and talk about Mr. Mellow, Steve Bannon. Bannon can’t catch a break. Unlike Serena, Bannon can’t bring the wrath of the aggrieved down on anybody. He has, however, united them in their contempt for him. Bannon has been run off the reservation of polite company by those who are blessed with “correct think.” Why? Because he exists. Reasons aren’t necessary. The man looks like an unmade bed…or as one of the less charitable commenters said, “like a plague ship.” Continue Reading………..

  1. Mr. Callaghan,
    I totally agree on both points. I find Mr. Bannon interesting & don’t think he should be so quickly “bannished”. Serena was an embarrassment

    1. Hello Trixie…(love the name)

      Serena knew exactly what she was doing. Her followers are like a cult. They’d follow her off a cliff.
      Plus, she’s clever. She knew she couldn’t play the “race card.” She was playing against a woman whose father was from Haiti and her mother Japanese. Checkmate.

      If you get a chance, click the link on my post that brings up Bannon debating Lanny Davis. Bannon is a fascinating speaker with a very fertile mind. He reads everything and is always “on”.

      I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Steve Bannon. I consider that to be a good thing.
