Graham Spanier…that’s not a real name.


#3

Methinks Mr Lord doth protest too much.


#4

Christ, what a late stage capitalist.


#5

Reminds me of this.


#6

“Running out of sympathy for 35 yr old, so-called victims with 7 digit net worth,” Lord said in the email sent Saturday. "Do not understand why they were so prominent in trial

I’m so tired of this kind of witch-hunt logic. If you are rich then you don’t deserve compensation and if you are poor you are only trying to exploit the system to get rich. Either way, you are undeserving. Fuck that.

Nah, he’s just rehearsing his interview material for a Board of Regents gig at Baylor.


#8

It must be hell on him


#9

As a victim of sexual abuse, I wouldn’t feel at all bad if Mr. Lord was given a real dose of abuse himself, as a real and visceral teaching aid - you know, to help him understand.


#10

As a PSU alumnus, I’d like to respectfully invite Mr. Lord to go fuck himself.

Vigorously, forcefully, and repeatedly.

He does not speak for those of us who feel that Paterno, Spanier, and all the rest took a collective dump on our diplomas.

…according to an email sent to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

He couldn’t have just not clicked send? Give a white guy email, and he just has to send out every random thought that pops into his little head? I once saw some guys fired from very very lucrative jobs for mailing porn back and forth on company accounts.

These people are [I]enemies of sportsball[/I] and denied the home tribe one of its most honored warlords just because of some ‘child rape’ or something. They should be glad that their human rights haven’t been revoked for that sort of egregious behavior.


#13

In a sense, the willingness of terrible people to be terrible across channels that are easy to document and hard to purge is one of their nicer qualities.

If their opsec were better, they’d be even more of a menace.


#14

I get that it might be frustrating to try to not be able to put a scandal behind you but then – FUCK YOU, PENN STATE.


#15

Penn State trustee Albert L. Lord said he is “running out of sympathy” for the “so-called” victims

You can go fuck yourself sir.


#16

What is the appropriate age and net worth at which a person should no longer mind having been sexually abused as a child?


#17

From Lord’s position statement:

As I have for my time as a trustee since 2014, I will continue to advocate for a civil reconciliation with our past through the public recognition of the accomplishments of Graham Spanier, Joe Paterno, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.


#18

I give you our Cheeto-in-Chief as an example. Unfortunately, it will be a uphill struggle before any corrective actions get taken.


#19

“Don’t tell me anything, I don’t want to know.”

I am running out of sympathy for a future class of aristocrats sobbing how sorry they are as they’re being hauled off to the guillotine.
