Oh mai...

“Blake Neff has resigned," Fox News told the Washington Examiner on Friday.

Neff has been a frequent poster on a web forum called AutoAdmit, according to CNN. Using the pseudonym CharlesXII, Neff repeatedly posted inappropriate slurs and remarks for the past several years.

In a post just this week, Neff responded to a thread titled "Would u let a JET BLACK congo n----- do lasik eye surgery on u for 50% off?" He responded, "I wouldn't get LASIK from an Asian for free, so no." On June 5, Neff wrote, "Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down."

In March, Neff began making fun of a woman who had made the decision to freeze her eggs. He titled a thread, "Disaster: WuFlu outbreak endangers aging shrew's quest to freeze eggs."
A real piece of work.

This is exactly how we inculcate bias, classism, racism, sexism -- all the old cultural patterns -- in the next generation. These all-too-familiar themes wrapped up in pretty packages that strip out the cruelty. Diagon Alley is straight out of Dickens, but it's just a charming, decorative shell that reduces the 19th century into set decorations. Hermione at school is a token acknowledgment of modern sensibilities, but everyone's home lives are still the old gender stereotypes with Mrs. Weasley at home producing oodles of babies while her husband goes off to work every day.
This thread just floated across my timeline in Twitter -- the whole of it is spot-on, to my mind

Greg Clark does seem to have shown a little backbone here and there. He had the Conservative whip withdrawn for opposing one of the Brexit fannying about motions (Can't remember the detail :p) and since becoming chairman of the Science & Technology committee he's been suitably off-message. He's had a go at Public Health England officials over Covid-19 testing and now he's needling Huawei. Maybe he'll be okay.
