1) So the fact that you haven't done it somehow nullifies the fact that it still happens at a ridiculous rate, be it in religious environments,
business environments, or family events?
2) The accused can definitely defend themselves in court. And if they win, they can even press charges against the accuser. There will always be
people who judge others before an actual trial or before any evidence is shown, but that speculation exists in all potential crimes.
3) Many of the people accused of these sexual assaults, molestations, pedophilia, etc have admitted to their actions or paid massive settlements to
hush up the accusations. This means the accusers were in the right.
4) So how is it a bad thing that the sex offenders from #3 are being exposed when they're admitting they committed those crimes? Because make no
mistake, these are crimes. People keep trying to minimize it but sexual harassment, molestation, indecent exposure, statutory rape, molestation, etc
And for the incidences that aren't crimes, the actions are still oftentimes against company policy and/or other workplace regulations. So I repeat,
why is it so hard for them to keep their hands to themselves & their man parts in their pants?
5) I always see people claim they're "tough on crime" and say crap like "it sucks but the law is the law" when referring to policies against children
who are illegal immigrants. I also see people claim we should have extreme vetting when it comes to immigration in general, oftentimes citing crimes
committed by immigrants and the danger they pose to citizens. Remember the whole "bowl of skittles with a few poisonous ones" example?
But when it comes to protecting American children and women from actual sexual predators, that "tough on crime" facade crumbles, the "family values"
argument disappears, and the "protect Americans" narrative is nowhere to be found. All of a sudden, it doesn't matter if there are 50 poisonous
skittles in the bowl; it only matters if the skittle is a blue one or a red one.
Shouldn't a purge on sexual predators be a part of "draining the swamp"?
