Archie Comics CEO: White guys aren’t members of “a protected class"

The NY Daily News (via JWF):

The co-CEO of Archie Comics' says she couldn’t have discriminated against her underlings - because they’re white men.

In papers filed in Westchester Supreme Court, Nancy Silberkleit's lawyer says a gender discrimination lawsuit filed against her earlier this year by a group of Archie Comics employees should be tossed in part because white guys aren’t members of “a protected class.”

The embattled co-CEO's filing also mocked the five employees’ claim that she’d used her “gender as a weapon” by yelling “Penis! Penis! Penis!” during a business meeting.

“Plaintiffs fail to allege that any such comments were directed at any of the plaintiffs in particular, or they could cause extreme emotional distress even if they had been,” her court filings say.

First, imagine if the gender roles were reversed. Second, this is a perfect microcosm of leftist thinking -- we're all members of a "group," not individuals, and some are more "protected" than others. Third, there's been (thus far) nary a word from the comicbook creators in Twitterville. Our 'ol pal Ron Marz, for example, is still obsessing over George Zimmerman.

Yeesh. What a repugnant woman. If the genders were reversed, there would be tons of Tweets and Facebook posts ad the like and people would be whining about how "oppressive patriarchy" or some nonsense like that.

The bit about groups also reiterates my belief that progressives are like the Borg Collective in a way. No individuality.

She should be fired. If I had a comic company, I wouldn't want her working for me. I hope the lawsuit against her succeeds.
