Via Moonbattery comes THIS
One advantage of leftism is that you don’t need to be big and strong to enjoy bullying. You just need to embrace the roll of the offended victim. Even kids can join in, as in the case of 9-year-old Marie Marcum, who bullied Chuck E. Cheese, game manufacturer Innovative Concepts in Entertainment, and Major League Baseball from her home in suburban Chicago.
Marie Marcum was attending a school fundraiser at Chuck E. Cheese when she stepped up to an MLB-licensed throwing game to show off her throwing skills. But after missing one of the targets the game taunted her by saying, “Hey, there’s always softball!”
As a person who plays softball, Marie took offense.
Nine-year-olds don’t really bully major corporations. Adults do it through them.
Marcum’s mother, Lisa, who teaches high school, heard her daughter’s frustrations and suggested she write a letter to Innovative Concepts in Entertainment (ICE), the game’s manufacturer. …
Marcum’s uncle then suggested that, since the game was covered in MLB logos, she should also write a letter to the league.
Sounds like this kid’s mom and uncle need to be smacked for placing the yolk of victimhood on this kid. Leftism strikes again, and of course, these bullies are being appeased
Without having received the letter, MLB was already bowing, scraping, and making compliant noises.
Bleated Joe Coppola, President of ICE,
“I completely understand where she is coming from. I get it. There is probably a greater sensitivity today than there was 10 or 15 years ago. It’s something we all need to pay attention to.”
Imagine how much sensitivity we will have in another 10 or 15 years. No one will dare open their mouths except to announce that they are offended.
Coppola said it would be easy to remove the audio clip from the game. In the meantime, Chuck E. Cheese has already muted the game in all its arcades.
