We’ve become accustomed to the left playing the race card. Now we’re seeing the left play the sex card in their never-ending quest for power, obtained by any means necessary. They’re sacrificing their own (Franken, Conyers) with the hope of appeasing those demons that they worship: money, power, control. If the scheme works, they get back the reins of government so they can continue the fundamental transformation of America, to the ruin of all.
Their game is as plain as can be. No doubt, they’ve already lined up (and paid for) the accusers-to-be.
Surely you perceive that the accusers-to-be are out there, waiting in the wings for the appropriate time, when the Democrats and the mainstream media will spring them upon us. You know of whom I speak.
The female Trump accusers.
Wait for it. They’re coming. The harpies who shall bring him down. Or so the left hopes.
Someone is going to accuse the president of sexual harassment and the narrative concocters will ensure that the alleged harassing events are recent. They’ll also be sure to make it seem like a pattern, which means somebody’s going to have to pay more than one accuser for services rendered. Not to worry.
Let the accusations begin and then hear the cries go up:
The Republicans must do the right thing and throw Trump out!
If all else fails, the left can still hope that the momentum of their astroturfed #MeToo movement will at the very least carry a bunch of female Democrats (never Republicans!) into Congress and, they hope, into the White House.
Due process be damned!
Who the heck cares about fairness, justice, the American Way, when there’s power to be grabbed?
And who the heck cares what it does to our society? Not the power grabbers.
The Democrats, the media, and the alt-left are now doing for relationships between women and men in the workplace, in politics, at schools–basically in any public sphere–what they’ve already done for relationships between the races. In other words, they’re destroying them, just as Obama, who was supposed to be the post-racial uniter, ended up setting race relations back decades.
The #MeToo movement, if it means zero tolerance–no due process for the accused–will do as much harm to women as to men. It will set women in the workplace back 50 years or more. Think about it.
Given a choice between hiring a qualified man or a qualified woman, what sane male supervisor is going to take the chance on a woman? Better to be safe than sorry, if the #MeToo movement means that any time a female underling decides to get even for even the smallest slight, all she has to do is claim sexual harassment and immediately her male boss’s career is ended. What about a co-worker? What’s to stop a woman from clearing the way for a promotion by making accusations against a rival for the job?
Women have fought for decades for equal treatment in the workplace–fighting, for example, for the right to be invited to power lunches or golf games, where so much business is conducted. What male boss is going to include women, now?
Will men even talk to women in the workplace, anymore? Ride elevators with them? Go to lunch with them? Grab a quick coffee? Take breaks? Mentor a woman? Hardly. Relations between the sexes will be poisoned.
It’s the logical result of #MeToo movement hysteria.
Men, after all, are going to look out for their own self-preservation, which includes, of course, the best interests of their families. They’re not stupid, after all. Their livelihoods and the well-being of their families depend upon their keeping their jobs, especially since most families need two wage earners to make ends meet.
During the 2016 campaign, the future Vice President Mike Pence was ridiculed and even severely criticized because over his career in politics he’s made it a rule to never be alone at dinner with a woman who is not his wife, nor to ever attend events where alcohol is served unless his wife is also present. Besides making fun of him, feminists also took Pence to task for not affording females on his staff the same privileges as males–such as being privy to solo meetings with their boss, which can help one’s career.
Does he look silly or foolish now? Or has his policy saved him from going the way of others who have seen their careers destroyed over allegations, mere allegations, without any proof?
Conservatives, you see, can’t afford to not be careful. They don’t get the same “boys will be boys” special treatment that the likes of Bill Clinton do. Pence, in other words, has no Democrat Privilege.
Nor do Roy Moore and President Trump.
Consider the case of Republican Representative Trent Franks, who resigned recently because he (arguably foolishly) asked female staffers to consider being a surrogate mother for his wife and himself. The women reportedly felt uncomfortable about this discussion. At least one woman apparently misunderstood, falsely believing that surrogacy required having sex with the representative.
Franks’s discussion of surrogacy was apparently a microaggression besides being sexual harassment (according to leftist thought). Thus, he must be punished, and harshly. No second chances. No dispensation for thoughtlessness or foolishness. No quarter! Zero tolerance. His career must be ruined.
By now we know the drill. Someone feels uncomfortable. Reality doesn’t matter. Intent doesn’t matter. All that matters is the perception of the recipient of the microaggression, not the intent of the alleged aggressor. The feelings of the uncomfortable one are tantamount. She’s been pushed out of her “safe place,” poor little snowflake!
Lately, young men on college campuses have experienced this same sort of unfair, unjust treatment after being merely accused of sexual abuse or sex crimes, especially during the Obama administration. Only with the Trump presidency has there finally been a change with regard to ensuring that the accused receive due process along with a presumption of innocence.
Now what’s been rolled back on campuses has infected businesses and politics. It’s punish first, and never ask questions at all!
The accused is required to prove his innocence, standing centuries of Western jurisprudence on its head. It’s next to impossible to prove a negative. Men are quitting rather than to put themselves and their families through the process of an “ethics investigation.” Who can blame them?
Is this what you want for the men in your own families? If this continues apace, your family could be next. Your son, your father, your husband, any man in your family, could be at the mercy of a person who wishes to see his career end, for whatever reason. All that person has to do is make an accusation and poof! His career is over.
While some of the accused men may very well be guilty, they remain innocent until proven guilty.
For those who’ve acknowledged guilt and taken their punishment–fine. That’s their choice.
However, those who, like Judge Roy Moore, deny the allegations deserve due process.
Innocent until proven guilty.
It’s the American Way.
