Christine Quinn And Her Histrionic Personality Disorder [UPDATED]
New York City Council President and Mayoral candidate Christine Quinn is mad and nothing will prevent her from staying that way.
From Politicker, Colin Campbell reporting, we learn:
This afternoon, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn offered a heartfelt rebuttal to comments made by Chirlane McCray–the wife of Ms. Quinn’s opponent, Bill de Blasio–despite an admission by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd that Ms. McCray had been misquoted.
“I agree with Maureen that the sentiment is the same and that sentiment, to me, is really saddening and troubling,” said Ms. Quinn at the end of an unrelated press conference at City Hall. “I don’t understand why Ms. McCray or why the public advocate sitting next to her would allow statements to be made that clearly indicate that somehow I am not able to listen to women, listen to families, serve women and families who do not have children.”
Ms. Quinn went on to call the comments “inappropriate” and hurtful and argued that her status as parent was irrelevant to the election.
“I have a family. In my apartment, my wife and I, we’re a family,” she said, her voice cracking slightly. “Our 10 nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews, we’re a family. My father and I, Kim’s dad. we’re a family. When I took care of my mother when she was dying, that’s a family. Kim and I lost our mothers. People make personal decision, for medical reasons, all kinds of reasons, that go into why people do and don’t have children. And no one should comment about that and make it a political issue.”
Earlier today, Ms. Dowd incorrectly quoted Ms. McCray, claiming that Ms. McCray said that Ms. Quinn, who does not have children, is “not the kind of person I feel I can go up to and talk to about issues like taking care of children at a young age.”
This resulted in Ms. Quinn sending out a blistering statement criticizing Mr. de Blasio for being insensitive toward families like hers. And even though the Times admitted their error, the Quinn team maintains its original bombardment.
“We stand by our statement, as the essence of Ms. McCray’s quote is the same,” Quinn spokesman Mike Morey said in a followup statement. “The updated Maureen Dowd column affirms the fact that the de Blasio campaign made it quite clear they believe that Christine Quinn is not the ‘kind of person who you can talk to and go up to and have a conversation [with] about those things…’ directly referencing ‘tak[ing] care of children at a young age.’”
The corrected quote, it should be noted, does not quite have the same negative connotations as the first, with the “children” point coming amid a host of policy priorities Ms. McCray feels Ms. Quinn’s agenda isn’t addressing.
The truth is, Mzzzz. Quinn: no one in their right mind should consult you about any issues that have to do with children. Whatever your opinions or advice are they are mortally tainted by the fact that you lead and celebrate a perverse lifestyle[yeah, I said it], one that renders your opinions unfit for consideration by normal people.
You live as a Lesbian, which means you are a neurotic, which renders any opinions you may have on children moot because your sad condition robs you of all Reason.
You are actively engaging in the fantasy that you are really married to another woman, which is something that is impossible and, therefore, you insistence that we all play along with your fantasy – by force if necessary – clearly shows that you suffer from Hysteria.
You are not fit to have any influence on children because you are a torrid advocate and champion of abnormality.
None of the above makes you an awful person, but it means you are not mentally stable.
What makes you an awful person are your actions as a politician, not your psychological instability or your sexual derangement or your manic and disturbed soul.
In every way, you are unfit to offer any advice on children or to be taken seriously.
Get help, Miss Quinn.
UPDATE on 22AUG2013 at 2011…
After her embarrassing performance mentioned above,
Mr., er, Mzzz. Quinn decided to double-down on her idiocy.
From LifeSiteNews, Ben Johnson reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Jeanette Runyon]:
Christine Quinn, a Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, has said she would be open to having middle schools distribute the morning after pill to girls as young as 11 without parental notification.
Quinn made the announcement on Tuesday while receiving the endorsement of Planned Parenthood.
The city council speaker admitted the idea “can make some people uncomfortable” according to the New York Post, but providing abortifacients to preteens in public schools is “a really important option we need to make accessible.”
“If the data shows us that that is what would be most helpful, that is what we’ll do,” she said.
One of her family members should seek guardianship of this mess of a woman and get her committed [to a psychiatric hospital, not, as she's been doing her whole life, to seeking the destruction of Western Civilization].
