• How To Minimize And Discredit, Texas Style

    You all remember the video of Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams beating his then-16-year-old daughter and resulting outrage it sparked. Now a Detroit Free Press article reveals what the judge claims is the real motivation for his daughter Hillary making the video public.

    Her father's statement said: "Just prior to the YouTube upload, a concerned father shared with his 23-year-old daughter that he was unwilling to continue to work hard and be her primary source of financial support if she was going to simply 'drop out,' and strive to achieve no more in life than to work part-time at a video game store."

    The statement said she warned her father if he reduced her financial support and took away her Mercedes, which he had provided, he would "live to regret it."

    Oh. So it's just a case of a spoiled, whiny little brat who's just mad she can't freeload off Daddy and keep the Mercedes anymore, so she threw a little tantrum and posted the video to get back at poor dad.

    *immediately forgets about the video*
    *immediately starts castigating Hillary Adams*
    *immediately starts praising Judge Adams for "taking a hard stand" and being a "good dad"*

    Damn. So that's how it feels to be a red-state conservative. Daddy defuses blame for his prior recorded actions by whining about how the little bitch* just wants his money and Mercedes and the low-information crowd starts eating it up.

    Conservatives now have an out and a target for victim blaming. I expect this story to blow over in a hail of dismissals and "spoiled bitch" slander in conservative circles. The impact of the video is minimized now that Hillary Adams has been discredited as a spoiled brat, therefore the sympathy disappears and people have a reason to be assholes again.

    William Adams needs help, not another reason to remain his natural asshole self.

    *Not that he actually said that, but that's probably what he's been thinking. Yes, his own child, but people can be weird like that.
