An Open Letter to Katie Pavlich

Dear Ms. Pavlich,

You don’t know me, and I certainly don’t know you but I wanted to say some things to you since we’re currently occupying the same mile radius as each other.

Today a group on our campus here at the University of Delaware invited you to speak on issues of the Second Amendment and gun rights. As a firm believer in honoring differences in opinion, I welcomed your visit with open arms and looked forward to hearing what you had to say. I’ll admit I don’t watch Fox News, and I have certain preconceived notions of what someone who works there might say, but I’m always willing to be proven wrong.

And then, on September 2nd, you posted an op-ed on the conservative news site “Town” entitled Exposing The Black Lives Matter Movement For What It Is: Promotion of Cop Killing. And that op-ed really upset a lot of my friends across the racial spectrum. When they said that you called them terrorists, it upset me too. I decided to read for myself what you said and try to figure out where you were coming from.

First of all, Ms. Pavlich, we are only eight years apart. While that may seem like quite a long time to both of us, I know that it really isn’t a great deal of time. A few years ago you were in my shoes, at a university, forming your own ideas about how the world works and trying to understand your place in it. That process isn’t always easy, I know, but we’ve got a few things going for us. We’re both pretty well off. We have the financial freedom to consider a wide variety of career choices and life paths. Our bank accounts, though not on a Donald Trump scale, are still enough to give us more choice than some of our peers. I think we can both agree that this makes us very lucky. Clearly you’ve got some intelligence. To be twenty-seven and work for a main news outlet is remarkable, and I admire your career advancement. I can only hope to rise as quickly through the ranks of my chosen profession as you have yours.

With this in mind, I wonder what you think when you see someone our age getting killed. Do you put yourself in that person’s shoes, wonder what it would feel like to have that bullet enter your body? Would it hurt? Would you feel intense pain, or a dull ache? Would death be quick, or painfully slow? In some of my more morbid moods I ask myself these questions. I’m sure we’ve all thought about them. But Ms. Pavlich, the thing is that if we’re being honest with each other the people getting shot and killed today don’t look a lot like we do. Their skin is darker. Their natural hair doesn’t look like ours. They might not talk the same way we do. Do you see yourself in the face of Sandra Bland? Or are your physical differences so great that you find yourself unable to perform the basic thing that makes us human – empathizing with someone other than yourself?

I understand that you’re scared, Ms. Pavlich. When I read your op-ed, I found one thing that stood out: fear. When you talk about activists reading from the words of Assata Shakur, you’re afraid of the power that those words have. You’re afraid that those words might become real someday. You’re afraid that a black woman could be as strong if not stronger than you. When you write about hearing protestors chant “pigs in a blanket”, I can almost hear the fear in your words. You are afraid that they are going to treat you the same way that you have treated them: like animals.

Let’s talk for a minute, one white person to another. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the paleness of your skin? Do you see the pink tones in your cheeks before you highlight them like women all across the country? Or do you just see a woman? A person? Can you see your whiteness, Ms. Pavlich? Does it reveal itself to you? I’d imagine that it has to. Every white person has their whiteness revealed to them at some point in their lives. The difference between you and me is that I chose to continue to see it. You, perhaps, did not.

When you ask for the adoption of the slogan “All Lives Matter”, you’re not really asking for that. What you see when you read the words written on the chests of my black friends, neighbors, brothers, sisters, and fellow Blue Hens, is the phrase “Black Lives Matter*” and, further down their chests, “*More Than Yours”. Ms Pavlich, that asterisk is not there. I know you see it. I know because of the way you talk about how scary it is to see black men and women across this country standing up for the first time that you and I have both been acutely conscious of and saying “You can’t ignore me”. You’re scared that by looking them in the eye that they will take something from you. You’re scared that they will take your guns, or your skin tone, or your dominance. You’re scared that they will take those things and declare that you and they are equal to each other.

Ms. Pavlich, you and I have never had to be equal to anybody but each other in our lives. We can look at each other as transparent people, a collection of organs and tissue and bones covered by skin that is so light you can see right through it. We have the ability to look at each other and not see anything other than what’s in front of us. But when I look at people of color, I cannot see through them. Instead I see rich histories of African kingdoms with some of the most advanced civilizations the world has ever known. I see the marks of chains where my ancestors enslaved their ancestors and forced them to do the work they did not feel like doing. I see the scars from bottles and bullets and dog bites their parents and grandparents endured during marches through Selma and Montgomery and Washington, D.C. I see power rooted in melanin and strength in taut chocolate and caramel and ebony and beige skin. And that power is intimidating. But it’s also beautiful.

I don’t think you’re a terrible person. I think you’re a scared little girl. I think you’re realizing that the world is not a beautiful place where everything goes the way you want it to. You see others falling in front of you, felled by bullets, poverty, disease, rape, and racism and you feel scared that you’re next. You’re trying to survive. But pushing other people in front of the barrel of the gun does not make you safer, Ms. Pavlich. It makes you an accomplice to murder, and to racial genocide. And it does not mean that you’re not next.

Harry Lewis at 5:41 PM

There are no words. I weep for our future.

I posted the whole thing because I didn’t want anyone thinking I must have left out the part where he admits he is trying to do satire. This is word-for-word what Harry Lewis wrote, in all it’s glory.

The worst part is that Harry and Sarah are both inordinately proud of themselves for the reaction they provoked, like a toddler showing mommy he went poo-poo all by himself like a big boy. If you have any children attending the University of Delaware, get them out of there before the SJW zombies eat their brains.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    Proof again we have absolutely too many nin-com-poops wasting time in college. You can’t fix Stoopid.

  2. driguana says:

    Well at least this explains why the mascot name of the University of Delaware is The Fightin’ Blue Hens!

  3. DeniseVB says:

    LOL, did you see Katie’s (sorta) response and his response to her few words ? Must see….

    • lyn says:

      LOL. What a silly little boy.
      “When I called Katie Pavlich a scared little girl, I didn’t mean that in a demeaning sense. I generally meant that she’s scared. Everyone from those commenting tweets is scared too. When I speak my truth and the truth of others, it can’t be argued with. Fear is powerful, almost as much as logic is. But logic is still more powerful. And I’ve got that on my side.”

    • DeniseVB says:

      Here’s her original tweet ” sorta response ” he wrote a whole new blog post about😛

    • OMG, what has happened to gay men in college? The ones I knew were some fierce & hilarious snarksters. If you talked back to them, they would take your ass to the woodshed. This guy isn’t even funny. I bet he breatfed until he was, like, nine.

  4. elliesmom says:

    I’ve been thinking about this for awhile – really, not snark. When I was a kid, we were taught to have shame and/or guilt about sex, cheating, lying, and stealing. Today none of those things are particularly shameful. We have the hookup generation where it’s OK to have as much sex with as many different people as you can. You can even brag about it no matter which gender you are or what your sexual orientation is. Virginity has become a disease. Plagiarism in the internet age is no longer shameful. You can even be the Vice President and it’s no big deal. There’s no doubt Hillary Clinton has lied to the American people over and over again, but it’s wrong to hold her accountable for it. Stealing things is OK, too, as long as you’re part of a looting mob. But I think guilt and shame are part of the human psyche. Like pleasure. If it’s missing in our lives, we seek it out. Since we’re no longer supposed to feel guilty about things we used to, the SWJs have latched onto white guilt, heteronormal guilt, and western civilization guilt. Because they really need to feel guilty about something. Kids whose parents instilled old-fashioned guilt in them don’t seem to have bought into the new guilt as much, but for those who have to live with both, life is tough.

    • lyn says:

      Wow–you nailed it.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s a great overview em, it’s quite a head scratcher how kids (especially the millennials) are so cray-cray. Yet, my next door neighbors’ (retired Navy officers) kids, both grew up in the same home with the same God fearing, church going parents, great folks plenty of love, attention and discipline. Their oldest, a now college educated professional young woman just recently married. Their son, about 23 now, has yet to leave home, he’s still trying to find his niche in life. Sometimes works, might take a class now and then, but only if it’s something that interests him. He’s deeply involved with SJW and LGBT activism, (from his FB posts he’s Bisexual Proud or something, not that there’s anything wrong with that). Nice kid though. I’m not judging, just wondering, maybe it is the vaccines afterall ?

    • votermom says:

      That’s an interesting idea. I think you may be right.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    I think I topped your “stupidest thing read tonight” …. after reading through Harry’s timeline, he answered Katie’s commenters to himself, proven the boy has no balls to be a true SJW … in Newark, Delaware !

  6. DeniseVB says:

    Katie interviewing Carly at the Redstate Gathering last month ….

  7. DandyTIger says:

    WTF is wrong with these people? And can we extend late term abortion up to say 25 years old?

  8. helenk3 says:

    there was a time when a kid would his ass kicked for lying, now this one gets rewarded

    • DeniseVB says:

      Did you see the loot Microsoft sent him ? The kid could open his own Radio Shack.

    • elliesmom says:

      If he decides to go to engineering school, he’ll get his ass kicked by the kids who really are talented. It’s still a highly competitive environment, and taking a clock apart and taping it to a pencil case just isn’t very “high tech”. Other kids his age are designing their own circuit boards.

      • leslie says:

        I agree. He won’t make it at MIT or UofIL or any other real engineering school. This kid is a pawn – NOT a whiz kid or an engineering genius. He is a victim – of his father and of CAIR. But he is, like the other “victims” of our society (BLM and OWS come to mind), reveling in his victimhood – his persecution.
        And I really don’t care about him or others like him who choose to defraud those around him.

      • Lulu says:

        He and his family were calling one of his classes “engineering”. No. It was possibly a beginner tech class elective or a science class or something. It was not engineering which just goes to show how stupid the media is to let them call a dopey kid’s junior high class “engineering”. He also kept pulling his crap out in his other classes and was repeatedly told to put his junk back in his backpack or whatever he drags around. It sounds like his teachers are used to him being a goof and kind of disruptive or needy for attention. I think he is kind of pitiful.

        • Lulu says:

          If you want a nerdy kid story my eldest was fixing printers at his school in the fourth grade. In the fifth grade the principal was driving him to other schools to “fix” tech problems. In the sixth grade it stopped when he asked to be paid. We were not aware this was going on by the way in 1993 to about 1996. He did consult on the network they built when he was in junior high but for free.

      • votermom says:

        They invited him to the google science fair

        Check out the pic.
        These are the kids he is on stage with:

        Taking home the $50,000 grand prize was Olivia Hallisey, 16, from Connecticut. Moved by the lives lost in Africa to the Ebola outbreak in 2014, she devised a rapid, portable and inexpensive diagnostic test for the detection of the virus.

        Also receiving awards were Girish Kumar, 17 of Singapore, who came up with a way to automatically generate review questions for students from online textbooks; Krtin Nithiyanandam, 14 of Surrey, England, who designed a diagnostic tool to detect Alzheimer’s at earlier stages in the disease; Pranav Sivakumar, 15 of Aurora, Illinois who invented an automated method for finding and characterizing gravitationally lensed quasars; Anurudh Ganesan, 15 of Clarksburg, Md., who designed a more reliable way to transport vaccines to remote locations in developing countries; Deepika Kurup, 17 of Nashua, NH, devised a filtration system to remove toxins from drinking water; Lalita Prasida Sripada Srisai, 13 from India, came up with an inexpensive way to clean waste water by flowing it through corn cobs; and Eliott Sarrey,14 from Maron, France, who built a robot that when controlled by a smartphone can tend vegetable gardens.

    Obama was running late.

  10. DeniseVB says:


    • DandyTIger says:

      This could be interesting. On the one hand, it’s Obama’s FBI. If he doesn’t want dirt, there will be no dirt. On the other hand, Obama might want to destroy Hillary and push Biden. Another possible wrinkle is if the stuff recovered is damaging to Obama. If I were a betting man, and I am, I’d wager that there will be nothing very damaging exposed.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Another possibility: blackmail opportunities for Obama against Hillary. She becomes his puppet.

      • 49erDweet says:

        I agree, except whoever heard of many lower level political cover-up/co-conspirators remaining silent for that long? Huge post-presidency risk to O-man’s legacy there, IMO.

  11. Myiq2xu says:

    • Lulu says:

      You can bet that the “UDPD” sent to evaluate him is trained in mental health screening. Ninny boy needs to understand he can be sent home as a manic hysteric or beginner bi-polar in nothing flat. They even issue refunds to the parents.

  12. Myiq2xu says:
    • leslie says:

      It looks like ‘Harry’ mulled over the advice the UDPD gave him at 9:15 and then at 11:01 decided WTF. I’m spreading more lies and rumors.

  13. swanspirit says:

    Speaking of stupid, Donald Trump is smarter than Stephen Colbert.🙂 He just proved it on the Late Show.
    Ps. I live about 20 minutes driving time from Delaware. We don’t expect too much from our neighboring Delawarians, even while driving. Ok, especially while driving.

    Haha! From a Florida Atlantic University poll to be released Wednesday:

    Trump has more support in Florida than Rubio & Jeb! COMBINED!

    • Lulu says:

      And they are just polling Republicans. Wait till they include Indies and Dems willing to vote in the Repub primary to get rid of him. Forever.

    Our Harry got Twitchied. Those “nooses” were remnants of lanterns used at a festival a week earlier. Photos, glorious photos here:

    • Lulu says:

      LOL. Now he is sorry not sorry. Have his parents been called to discuss his personality disorders?

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m sure they’ve read about it in USA Today, which is covering this “hate crime” story, no retraction yet. FB commenters are screaming at them LANTERN HOLDERS YOU IDIOTS, LANTERN HOLDERS !

        MSM has officially jumped the shark without regard to facts or the fragile mental health of this boy. I fear this sudden attention, for the wrong reasons, may drive him off the edge, like a mass shooting. Thank goodness, SJW’s don’t like guns, but I’d keep an eye on him.

        • Lulu says:

          This kid is disturbingly “hardware” challenged. How can he (and the university adminstration) think a common and very simple object like a wire pressure hanger is a rope noose? I bet those hangers stay in the trees for repeated and regular use for banners, etc. Why would janitors have to repeatedly climb up ladders, risk injury, so ninny boy doesn’t get skeered? One day ninny boy just happened to look up like chicken little and ran away alarmed.

    • Jeffhas says:

      Harry and his ilk literally see racism everywhere.

      “Hey look, up in the sky, it’s racism!”
