The Washington County Sheriff’s Office arrested a woman who said she was playing a prank when she approached a group of people with a firearm Sunday night.
Deputies responded to a report of menacing with a handgun at Vista Brook Park in Raleigh Hills at 11:05 p.m.
A group of three people said they were walking in the park when someone approached them and pointed a handgun at them. The group ran to a nearby house and asked the homeowner to call 911. They described the suspect and firearm to a dispatcher.
Deputies arrived in the area and walked the Fanno Creek Trail, which runs along the south side of the park. They found and detained a person who matched the suspect description.
While searching for the suspect, they located a realistic-looking airsoft gun.
The victims confirmed that the person deputies detained was the same person who pointed the gun at them. Deputies identified the suspect as Kadin E. Moore, 19, of Beaverton. She was lodged in the Washington County Jail on a menacing charge.
If that is a woman, then I’m the Sultan of Brunei.
Yeah, I know, we laugh at this stuff — “Ha! It’s Portlandia, what do you expect?” — but there’s a serious problem here. When language itself becomes corrupted, it becomes impossible to describe reality. Journalists are required now by their employers to write official lies, such as Kadin E. Moore is a woman, simply because Moore, a troubled, violent 19 year old, says he is.
I find it hard to encourage young people to consider professional journalism as a career. It used to be because jobs were scarce, but now, added to that, is the clear trend of having to use one’s words to lie. To flat-out lie about what is real, and to lie in a way that journalists working for Pravda and Izvestia had to do back in the day.
How could a person of integrity put his or her name on a story that requires having to refer to the Kadin E. Moores of the world as “women”? To be clear, I have no trouble with inserting a clause in stories like this saying Moore identifies as a woman. That is true. What I strongly object to is saying that Moore is a woman.
Let’s be honest. You don’t believe for one second that Kadin Moore is a woman. Only those who have undergone militant re-education at progressive universities believe that, and only those who are afraid that they’ll lose their job if they don’t go along with it say that.
I know a lot of you want to be progressive and compassionate and all, but look at that picture of that lunatic Kadin Moore, and say with a straight face, “That’s a woman.” Say it without hating yourself for your dishonesty.
We have to raise our children the way the communist-era Czech dissidents Vaclav and Kamila Benda raised their kids: to be aware that the Official Story promulgated in the media and in school is a lie.
