I know it should not come as a surprise from this rotten publication however, I can still hardly believe what I have just read.

I try to be impartial politically but the infuriating hypocrisy of one side inadvertently pushes me closer to the other no matter how much I try to remain a centrist.

Let's take Michael Knowles as an example. I listen to his podcast. I do not agree with everything he says and at times I think he is just as short sighted as those on the left he is railing against however, commentators like him are the only ones providing a counter narrative to the absolute lunacy of our liberal, globally minded overlords.

Check this snippet;

www.nytimes.com...


No one, looking at what’s been reported about Reade and Biden, can claim to have more than a hunch about what happened, which is why, I suspect, a lot of mainstream feminists haven’t said much about it. Writers on the left and the right purport to find their silence damning: So liberal feminists don’t “believe women” after all!

There have been a number of sneering columns accusing liberal feminists of hypocrisy for not championing Reade as fervently as they did Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed, during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination fight, that he’d sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school. It’s a sly rhetorical move that dares feminists to violate their own ideals by publicly weighing one woman’s credibility against another.

The truth is, if Blasey had been so inconsistent in telling her story, feminists might still have believed her, but they likely wouldn’t have made her a cause célèbre, and Democrats on Capitol Hill never would have invited her to testify publicly. Advocates for victims of sexual harassment and assault would worry that using such an ambiguous case as a political weapon would undermine their cause.

Personally, I’m just left with doubt: doubt about Biden and doubt about the charges against him. But the one thing I have little doubt about is the bad faith of those using this strange, sad story to hector feminists into pretending to a certainty they have no reason to feel.


'Sneering' columns and 'gotcha moments' in reference to feminists applying their sacred views disproportionately depending on who the accused is? THOSE BASTARDS!

How dare feminists and the liberally minded, moral elite saviors of the downtrodden be held to a standard they themselves set!

Did you know that Tara Reade has now filed a police complaint in relation to this incident? No mention of that in this article and in the one they did run was essentially a defence of creepy Joe and cross-examination of Tara Reade.

What happened to believe all women?

This lunacy needs to end.

Any time someone comes forward to file charges the justice system, as it is, they should investigate if there is enough evidence to do so.

Who knows if there is? Not you or I and we never will most likely. But im sure we can presuppose.

This complaint?

She filed a police report in Washington on Thursday saying she was the victim of a sexual assault by an unnamed person in 1993, a copy of which was obtained by the AP.
s ource

Why unnamed?

In any case voters don't seem to care much about such things. Republican voters, anyway.

Agree.

Allegations should also be kept confidential until such time as they have had an opportunity to be addressed through proper legal channels as opposed to the court of public opinion.

The unnamed part is quite interesting and I do see where the questions in her story are arising from. She has provided quite an inconsistent account of the alleged incident however, there is alarming hypocrisy from the #metoo crowd and feminists in this instance.

I vote for neither Republicans or Dems....we have our own parade of clowns we are forced to choose from here in Australia. Yeah, voting is compulsory so we can't even abstain from electing the idiots we are presented with.

She will be vilified and castigated because you NEVER accuse a leftist ass-waffle of anything bad.

EVER!

What's the ####ing point of having a two-tiered justice system if you can't get away with stuff and ruin the life of your accuser???

Why mention one political party? It is the same approach regardless of "party".

To insinuate only one political party does this is juvenile.

Are you implying republicans have never "destroyed" someone who has come forward with an allegation? If you give an example and then say "but they were guilty" than you more than prove my point.

Democrats are the ones who are constantly yelling about women's rights, inequality, sexual harassment, etc. They were the ones saying we have to "believe all women". Anyone who questioned the accusers was branded as being insensitive or not hearing their "truth".

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, the NY Times and the rest of the hypocrites all of a sudden want to ask tough questions.

If it were kept confidential I wouldn't have an opinion. Didn't say I was above voicing it.

But here we are....kind of proves my point. Thanks.

Come on dude!! As per her words... He laid on top of her fully clothes, laughing like he was having fun, and she thought she would die... If that is not a serious aggressive sexual assault I don't know what one is...

I'm sure Biden was just trying to hold her still to sniff her hair... You know something a NORMAL male would want to do.

Yes. They don't care about allegations of impropriety. Apparently.

Yeah, I get it. It's in the court of public opinion.

That is not a reason to come to some definitive answer.

By throwing out the hashtag with the "I didn't kill myself" you commit hyperbole and its not becoming someone making an honest argument, you put yourself solid in the "he is guilty and will kill someone because she spoke up" camp.

That is a crazy camp to sleep in.
