There’s disgruntled employees, and then there are self-righteous woke blowhards like WaPo’s Felicia Sonmez.

Eventually, even WaPo had their fill of it.

For anyone paying attention, WaPo has spent several days being the focus of attention. They have become the news story — and not in a good way.

Ever since Dave Weigel retweeted someone else’s joke about women (Something to the effect of all women are bi — bipolar or bisexual), Felicia Somnez has gone to war with her own employer.

Not only did she denounce Weigel for retweeting the joke, but she broad-brushed the company for tolerating such unwoke employees as himself. (Before the dust was settled, Weigel was sentenced to a month without pay for retweeting someone else’s weak joke.)

But she wasn’t done yet.

She went on to pick fights with several other WaPo employees in the next couple of days.

Ms. Sonmez then got into a Twitter disagreement with Jose A. Del Real, a reporter who acknowledged Mr. Weigel’s tweet was “unacceptable” but admonished Ms. Sonmez for “rallying the internet to attack” Mr. Weigel. Mr. Del Real later sent several tweets regarding an “unrelenting series of attacks” against him, and Ms. Sonmez questioned why The Post had not done anything to reprimand him for his tweets about her, including one that said she had engaged in “repeated and targeted public harassment of a colleague.”

In the following days, Ms. Sonmez wrote numerous posts on Twitter about the newsroom culture at The Post and what she said was the uneven way its social media policy was applied to different reporters. At times she jousted with fellow journalists at The Post on Twitter. —NYTimes

And now?

Now that old meme is coming to life:

Ms. Sonmez was fired over email on Thursday afternoon, according to one of the people. In an emailed termination letter, which was viewed by The New York Times, Ms. Sonmez was told that The Post was ending her employment, effective immediately, “for misconduct that includes insubordination, maligning your co-workers online and violating The Post’s standards on workplace collegiality and inclusivity.”

The email, from Wayne Connell, the Post’s chief human resources officer, also said Ms. Sonmez’s “public attempts to question the motives of your co-journalists” undermined The Post’s reputation.

“We cannot allow you to continue to work as a journalist representing The Washington Post,” the letter said.–NYTimes

Pity there are so many poor role models out there for young women. Fortunately, we’ve got a book with far better examples to emulate.

Biblical Badasses: The Women

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
