#METOOBUTNOTYOU

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “The New York Times published a polarizing op-ed on Wednesday by a feminist author who plans to vote for Joe Biden despite believing that he has committed sexual assault, all because she can’t stand President Trump.”

adespite 7

“Author Linda Hirshman penned the piece headlined, ‘I Believe Tara Reade. I’m Voting for Joe Biden Anyway.’ The author began by declaring she believes Tara Reade, who has accused presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden of sexual assault.”

adespite 1

‘“Let’s be clear: I believe Tara Reade,’ Hirshman wrote.”

‘“Democratic primary voters knew all about Mr. Biden’s membership in that boys’ club when there was still time to pick someone else. Alas,’ Hirshman wrote. ‘So, what’s a girl to do now?’”

A “girl?”

An old, two-faced, traitor to her gender, would be more like it.

I mean…, what’s a boy to do when he’s staring this kind of hypocrisy and the ugliest kind of disingenuousness that politics has to share, right in the face?

“The liberal author of ‘Reckoning: The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment’ explained that discounting Reade’s claims, which she notes have ‘four corroborating witnesses,’ would be ‘nonsense.’”

Thank you.  On this account, she’s absolutely right.

‘“So, stop playing gotcha with the female supporters of Mr. Biden or the #MeToo movement, making them lie to the camera — or perhaps to themselves — about doubting her to justify their votes,’ Hirshman wrote.”

Oh, it’s definitely the “lying to themselves” option.

adespite 3

And just for your information, Ms. Hirshman…, there has officially ceased to be a #METOO movement.

The #METOO movement has now been positively identified as the liberal sham that it is.

People should only mention #METOO in the future if they are looking for a laugh.

‘“I’ll take one for the team. I believe Ms. Reade, and I’ll vote for Mr. Biden [Creepy Joe] this fall.’”

You just go ahead and “take one” for that “team” of yours, Linda.

And what “team” would that exactly be by the way?

The Los Angeles Liars?

The Hollywood Hypocrites?

The Philadelphia Phonys?

How about the Las Vegas Losers?

Or the Frisco Fake Feminists?

Or maybe the Detroit Dumocrats?

nytimes.com wrote on Twitter, “Hirshman admitted the choice would be difficult, noting she’s been a champion of women’s equality since 1963.”

Ya, and Creepy Joe has said he’s been “a champion of women’s equality” for even longer than that!

Actions prove who someone IS.  Words just prove who they WANT to be.

adespite 10

“The Times opinion piece goes on to explain that Biden is most likely going to be the Democratic nominee regardless of Reade’s claims, and she wants a Democrat in the White House because of her loathing of President Trump.”

adespite 17

‘“Biden, and the Democrats he may carry with him into government, are likely to do more good for women and the nation than his competition, the worst president in the history of the Republic,’ she wrote.”

adespite 8

‘“Compared with the good Mr. Biden can do, the cost of dismissing Tara Reade – and, worse, weakening the voices of future survivors – is worth it.’”

adespite 15

That is sooooo pathetic, Hirshman…, sooooo pathetic.

“Hirshman then admitted she would sacrifice Reade for the ‘good of many.’”

adespite 18

Oh, how noble of you, Ms. Hirshman!

Here some tweets on the whole matter:

@ellie bufkin Tweeted, “BREAKING: Conservative hunch that Democrats were hypocrites all along is proven to be incredibly true.”

This was much more than a hunch, Ellie.  Democrats being hypocrites was determined to be the case many years ago.  Where you been?

Jeffrey St. Clair, @JSCCounterPunch, Tweted, “That’s a wrap…for #Metoo feminism.https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/06/opinion/tara-reade-joe-biden-vote.html?referringSource=articleShare …”

Steve Milloy, @JunkScience, Tweeted, “Mr. Biden, and the Democrats he may carry into government, are likely to do more good for women and the nation than his competition…, so Democrat men now have carte blanche to sexually abuse women b/c they will push the feminist agenda? Twisted.”

Dave Hansen, @Tree skier, Tweted, “#Metoomovement is well and truly dead.https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/06/opinion/tara-reade-joe-biden-vote.html …#MeTooUnlessItsBiden”

Kyle Orton, @KyleWOrton, Tweeted, “Quite difficult to convey how stunningly grotesque this is. It doesn’t even deserve the ‘points for honesty’ response some people have given it. It’s pure partisan hackery. Nobody who takes sexual violence seriously could speak like this.”

I totally agree, Kyle…, and that’s my point exactly.

#METOO? Apparently, there are women, and then there are WOMEN.

Yes folks…., we are being taught an important lesson by liberals about liberals, that not all women deserve equal justice under the law, and that some men are insulated from the justice they deserve.

Creepy Joe Biden, for example, is one of the “untouchable,” liberal, men who is allowed to get away with almost anything it seems.

adouble 5

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “The woman [Tara Reade] who has accused Joe Biden of a sexual assault in the early 1990s is calling out the media and several politicians being considered to join the former vice president on the 2020 ticket for ‘protecting a powerful man’ while attempting to ‘silence’ her in the process.”

Those politicians being senators, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren.

adouble 1

‘“I’d like my history with [Creepy Joe] Biden to be examined in a dignified way that’s not slanted by political bias or sensationalized. I’d like a deeper conversation about the fact that sexual harassment and sexual assault do not have a political party, [or an] agenda,’ Tara Reade told Fox News in an interview Sunday. ‘It’s an equal opportunity offender. There are Democrat offenders as well as Republican offenders and I’m sure Independent and Green Party. I mean, it doesn’t matter what your party affiliation is, and it shouldn’t as far as the media coverage regarding claims.’”

It shouldn’t, but it definitely does.

“Reade, a former staffer for the then-Delaware senator, pointed to the favorable reporting on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who came forward in 2018 during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and accused him of an alleged assault that took place in the 1980s. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations that were leveled against him at the time.”

adouble 13

‘“Blasey Ford, because it was a conservative candidate they were going to put in the Supreme Court, was treated with much more deference by most of the media outlets, although her experience was difficult as well. And she received threats and received her own pain,’ Reade said. ‘I’ve basically had no substantive support from women’s groups that are considered liberal or Democratic. I’ve had no support from any Democrat candidate, although I’ve reached out. And I’ve received either slanted reporting that ended up being talking points for Biden’s campaign or silence from the mainstream media. So that’s my contention and my concern.’”

That’s funny, because I can distinctly remember the liberal propaganda, fake news media attacking Judge Kavanaugh like a bunch of rabid dogs 24/7.

There is also a BIG distinction in that Blasey Ford’s accusations were against a then high schooler, Brett Kavanaugh, while Reade’s accusations are against a sitting U.S. Senator, and current presidential candidate, Joseph Biden.

adouble 3

adouble 4

Let’s take a look especially at Senator Kamala Harris, who has been silent regarding Tara Reade, but who was such a concerned and staunch supporter of women accusers when the accusations were against a conservative.

ACCORDING TO HER OWN U.S. SENATE WEBSITE, these are Senator Kamala Harris’ comments regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford:

“When Judge Brett Kavanaugh was first nominated, I said that he represents a direct and fundamental threat to that promise inscribed above the Supreme Court, ‘Equal Justice Under Law.’”

No concerns like that about Creepy Joe Biden, Senator Harris?

“In the weeks since then, the basis for my concern has been confirmed.”

Confirmed by what or by who?  Confirmed by the fake news media and promoted by political narrative driven democrats?

“Senate Republicans used raw power to rush an unfit nominee onto the Supreme Court when the American people have more questions than answers about Judge Kavanaugh’s suitability to serve.”

No questions at all about Quid Pro Quo Joe’s “suitability to serve” though?

“When Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with serious and credible allegations of sexual assault, not only was she attacked by Senate Republicans, she was mocked by the President of the United States. The White House then prevented the FBI from investigating critical aspects of the allegations or interviewing key witnesses—not even permitting the FBI to interview Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford.”

adouble 12

What makes Blasey Ford’s accusations “serious and credible,” but not Tara Reade’s?

Blasey Ford’s accusations were attacked explicitly because they were vague, unsubstantiated and uncorroborated.  Quite the opposite of Tara Reade’s accusations.

And what about any type of investigation, at all, FBI or otherwise, regarding Reade’s accusations?

“As a former prosecutor, I have led investigations and I have tried these cases in a courtroom. I have spent countless hours with assault survivors. And when I look at what has occurred over these few days, we have fallen short in fulfilling our constitutional duty to fully evaluate Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. This process has been a disservice to Dr. Ford. This process was a disservice to survivors everywhere. And this process has been a disservice to the American people.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) speaks during the Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trumpís nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Is it possible to observe anymore hypocrisy in one paragraph than we see here from Kamala Harris?

So, you obviously don’t consider Tara Reade a “survivor” or one of the American people, I guess, huh, Kamala?

Oh, I’m sorry.  I forgot those terms are only applicable to liberals.

“The Judge Kavanaugh the American people saw before the Judiciary Committee does not have the character, the temperament, or the judgment to sit on the highest court in our land. His own partisan, evasive, dishonest, and aggressive testimony demonstrates that we cannot trust him to be a fair and unbiased jurist. He is simply unfit. The Senate should have put partisanship aside and demanded better.”

Hey, at least Judge Kavanaugh was made to answer his accuser…, unlike Creepy Joe Biden, who has been given a complete pass thus far, and who’s campaign has just continued to deny, deny, deny and lie, lie, lie.

adouble 10

“It is now up to each of us to continue to fight for justice and equality and hold our government accountable.”

Your words are inspiring, Senator Harris, but the hypocrisy and disingenuousness is deafening.

Again, according to Wulfsohn, “The Biden accuser expressed hope that ‘the next kind of case’ like hers will be approached in a ‘more educated way and with emotional intelligence.’”

I certainly wouldn’t bet on that!

“Reade, a life-long Democrat, later called out the politicians on Biden’s VP shortlist over their ‘silence’ on her assault claim, including Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who she had supported for president during the Democratic primary before supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.”

‘“What I’d like to say to the slanted reporting where they are omitting details, where they are not investigating corroborating [testimony], what I would like to say to them at this point and some of the silence from some the candidates Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Elizabeth Warren that at this point, if you continue to silence me, if you continue to engage in protecting a powerful man without giving my case a closer look, you are complicit in rape,’ Reade declared.”

“The offices of Sen. Harris, Sen. Klobuchar, and Sen. Warren did not immediately respond to Fox News’ requests for comment.”

Hmmm, that’s odd.

“Earlier this month, Klobuchar was asked about Reade’s allegation but pointed to the reporting from The New York Times and concluded that her claim ‘has been investigated.’”

‘“He has said, and I agree with this, you’ve got to get to the bottom of every case and all allegations. I think The New York Times — I haven’t read all the stories. I read that one. Your viewers should read that,’ Klobuchar told MSNBC anchor Ari Melber. ‘It was very thorough. They interviewed people. And I have done a lot of work on this. I actually led the effort to change the rules in the U.S. Senate so that it is easier to bring these cases forward and so that we have taxpayers not paying for bad conduct.’”

‘“I think this case has been investigated. I know the vice president as a major leader on domestic abuse, I worked with him on that. And I think that, again, the viewers should read the article. It was very thorough.’”

Yes, Senator Klobuchar…, we all know how “thorough” The New York Times can be…, and slanted towards their liberal point of view.

And Senator Warren has been completely AWOL on this issue.  What an absolutely tireless defender of women she is!

“Reade’s story first resurfaced in an article in The Intercept on March 24. Podcast host Katie Halper then interviewed Reade, who said that in 1993, a more senior member of Biden’s staff asked her to bring the then-senator his gym bag near the U.S. Capitol building, which led to the encounter in question.”

‘“He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing,’ Reade told Halper. ‘There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.’”

“Reade said that she was wearing ‘a business skirt,’ but ‘wasn’t wearing stockings — it was a hot day.’”

“She continued: ‘His hands were on me and underneath my clothes, and he went down my skirt and then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers and he was kissing me at the same time and he was saying some things to me.’”

“Reade claimed Biden first asked if she wanted ‘to go somewhere else.’”

‘“I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing,’ Reade said. ‘He said: “Come on, man. I heard you liked me.”’”

adouble 2

Yes…, we’ve all heard the “come on, man” line before.

“Reade said she tried to share her story last year, but nobody listened to her. Earlier this month, she filed a criminal complaint against Biden with police in Washington, D.C.”

“Fox News reached out to the Biden campaign for comment on this story. The campaign referred Fox News to a statement earlier this month from Biden Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield that said: ‘What is clear about this claim: it is untrue. This absolutely did not happen.’”

Well, I guess that takes care of that then.

adouble 6

‘“Vice President Biden has dedicated his public life to changing the culture and the laws around violence against women,’ Bedingfield said. ‘He authored and fought for the passage and reauthorization of the landmark Violence Against Women Act. He firmly believes that women have a right to be heard — and heard respectfully. Such claims should also be diligently reviewed by an independent press.’”

Yes, Ms. Bedingfield…, and that’s what makes Ms. Reade’s claims all the more disappointing…, all the more disgusting…, and all the more believable.

CNN is MIA!

Again?

Yes…, “CNN is missing in action on Biden assault accuser Tara Reade’s story.”

aaccuser 6

And they’re not the only media outlet missing in action.

The rest of the fake news media is choosing to turn its back on this story as well.

aaccuser 2

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “It has been nearly three weeks [over three weeks now] since former congressional staffer Tara Reade spoke out about her 1993 sexual assault accusation against former Vice President Joe Biden, but it wasn’t until Easter Sunday that it began receiving any attention from the mainstream media.”

“And if you only watch CNN, you still haven’t heard about it.”

aaccuser 16

“For 18 days, as the coronavirus outbreak dominated the news cycle, Reade’s claim was not covered by the biggest media outlets following her March 25 interview with progressive podcast host Katie Halper. CNN, MSNBC and the three broadcast networks did not offer any on-air coverage or articles on their websites about the alleged assault. The New York Times and The Washington Post, two papers that dedicated extensive reporting to sex assault allegations made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, were also mum on the matter.”

That, folks, is what we call propaganda by omission…, as well as “selective outrage.”

aaccuser 4

“In addition, in seven televised interviews [Creepy Joe] Biden has done since Reade came forward with her allegation, he was never asked about it. This includes three interviews on MSNBC, two appearances on CNN and appearances on the Sunday morning news shows on ABC and NBC. Prominent anchors like Anderson Cooper, Chuck Todd and George Stephanopoulos never questioned the presumptive Democratic nominee, instead focusing on the pandemic and President Trump’s handling of the crisis.”

Never asked about it.

“The absence of reporting from these outlets was notable enough for the satirical news site ‘The Onion’ to address, mocking the Times on Thursday with the headline: ‘New York Times’ Pledges To Cover Biden Sexual Assault Allegations in Upcoming Crossword.’”

onion-bush

“The tides began to shift following Rich McHugh’s report in Business Insider on Friday that Reade had filed a criminal complaint against Biden. The New York Times ran its first report about the allegation on Sunday morning as millions of Americans were observing Easter. The Washington Post and NBC News issued their own reports later that day.”

“NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck blasted the ‘slowness’ of the media’s reporting on Reade’s allegation and insisted that the timing of the recent reports was suspect.”

‘“The liberal media’s slowness has provided a whole new meaning to the term [dragged in] “kicking and screaming,” because that’s exactly how the press have approached Reade’s story. Not only have they deceptively tried to sneak this in to coincide with Easter, but they’ve displayed shameful skepticism and even disgust when evaluating her,’ Houck told Fox News. ‘Most disturbingly, the Times chose to allow the Biden campaign to edit their story, and it illustrated the depths to which the press will go to show that Biden is no Brett Kavanaugh.’”

Quite different as to how the fake news media, the democrats, and liberals everywhere treated Kavanaugh accusers Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.

aaccuser 5

Yes, quite different, like completely different.

Where is the daily, and non-stop, media outrage?

Where are the daily protests in front of The Supreme Court?

Where is the concern for women’s voices to be heard?

Do you remember the “#METOO” movement?

Well, that movement has become the #METOO (only if my accusations do not pose any harm to the current liberal narrative and/or democrat candidates).

aaccuser 8

My last comment isn’t intended to be funny.  I’m only dragging the democrat’s blatant hypocrisy out into the sunlight for all to see, and stating what should be the obvious.

Can anyone, who is at least a little fair-minded, not recognize and acknowledge this?

aaccuser 7

“The Times raised eyebrows on Sunday after it deleted a tweet and tweaked its report about the 1993 accusation made by former Biden staffer Tara Reade, which originally read, ‘No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of reporting, nor did any former Biden staff members corroborate any details of Ms. Reade’s allegation. The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.’”

Some people may say, “All the way back in 1993…, that’s 27 years ago!”

But please let me remind you that Kavanaugh’s accusers dated all the way back to when he was in high school and college!

Creepy Joe Biden was a U.S. Senator, for 20 years already, at the time of Reade’s accusations.

“No correction or editor’s note was made in the report, but the Times later explained the deleted tweet, saying, ‘We’ve deleted a tweet in this thread that had some imprecise language that has been changed in the story.’”

“Imprecise language,” huh?

I haven’t heard that exact terminology before.

I’ll have to ad that to my “liberal dictionary!”

“Imprecise language” is that wording which has not been sufficiently spun, so as to put a liberal or a liberal narrative in the most advantageous and positive light.

“Dean Baquet, the Times’ executive editor, suggested on Monday that the change was influenced by the Biden campaign.”

‘“Even though a lot of us, including me, had looked at it before the story went into the paper, I think that the campaign thought that the phrasing was awkward and made it look like there were other instances in which he had been accused of sexual misconduct, and that’s not what the sentence was intended to say,’ Baquet said.”

And, of course, Dean, you give President Trump the opportunity to correct phrasing that is “awkward” when you report about him or his administration, don’t you?

That’s a rhetorical question, Mr. Baquet…, don’t sweat the answer.

“Actress Rose McGowan, one of the sexual assault victims of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, took aim at the Post over its report on Reade.”

aaccuser 9

‘“This is not journalism, this is an agenda. This is a hit piece. You’ve sunk to a new low in slanted journalism and victim shaming @WashingtonPost,’ McGowan tweeted.”

‘“As a survivor, the way you launched into this woman’s assault is truly vile,’ McGowan added. ‘Your motto is “Democracy Dies in Darkness” well I guess it’s dead because you are dark. Evil lives and it loves the DNC.

@rosemcgowan’”

Good for you Rose McGowan!

I haven’t agreed with some of your stances in the past, but congratulations on nailing this one right on the head and recognizing this whole situation for what it is…, a liberal propaganda, hypocritical, mess.

“Meanwhile, despite the partial dam that broke within the mainstream media, CNN and CBS News have yet to offer any [ANY] coverage of the story both on-air and online, according to searches of their telecasts and Internet archives.”

aaccuser 3

“McHugh, who broke the story on Reade’s filed criminal complaint against Biden, was formerly the producer at NBC News who teamed with Ronan Farrow to break the Harvey Weinstein scandal in 2017, which was ultimately killed by the network.”

‘“After interviewing Tara on multiple occasions, I interviewed two of the people she told back in 1993 — her friend and her younger brother. I found them both extremely credible and they corroborated her story to me. So when Tara filed a criminal complaint, and told me she was willing to go under oath, it was clear her claims needed to be reported. Simple as that,’ McHugh told Fox News.”

“Reade initially stepped forward last year, when multiple women emerged claiming inappropriate touching by Biden. Reade, at the time, claimed Biden put his hands on her shoulders and rubbed his fingers up and down her neck, but the story got no traction aside from an article in a local newspaper.”

“In late-March, Reade told a far more graphic account, with different and more serious details, raising the allegation to the level of sexual assault.”

“Reade’s story first resurfaced in an article in The Intercept. Podcast host Katie Halper then interviewed Reade, who said that in 1993, a more senior member of Biden’s staff asked her to bring the then-senator his gym bag near the Capitol building, which led to the encounter in question.”

‘“He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing,’ Reade told Halper. ‘There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.’”

“Reade said she tried to share her story last year, but nobody listened to her. This past Thursday, she filed a criminal complaint against Biden with police in Washington, D.C.”

“The Biden campaign vehemently denied Reade’s allegation.”

Like they always do…, lie, lie, lie, deny, deny, deny.

‘“Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims. We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,’ Kate Bedingfield, the deputy campaign manager and communications director for the Biden campaign, said in a statement to Fox News.”

Just empty words, Kate…, just empty words.

Howard Kurtz of Fox News adds, “The woman who says Joe Biden sexually assaulted her a quarter century ago certainly has some weaknesses and discrepancies in her account.  But Tara Reade has more corroboration for her claim than Christine Blasey Ford did when she made her accusations against Brett Kavanaugh in the fall of 2018.  And yet the differences in the way the media treated both cases are stark, raising unmistakable questions of a double standard.”

aaccuser 11

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just endorsed Biden, but said of the allegations at a public forum: ‘I think it’s legitimate to talk about these things. And if we want, if we, again, want to have integrity, you can’t say, you know — both believe women, support all of this, until it inconveniences you, until it inconveniences us.’”
