Let’s not overlook the hidden side of all this turmoil about sexual harassment: How many times, when a sexual interlude of some kind DIDN’T turn out to be an opportunity for wealth, power and prestige, did the woman then “come forward” to “tell her story?” The answer to my above questions is: no one knows. But, the question needs to be posed. And we know what the answer is NOT: none. My suspicion: it’s a WHOLE LOT more common than anyone would be comfortable admitting. Continue reading Sexual Harassment — the Other Side of the Coin
There HAVE been places where, absent evidence, we simply believed the accusers: The Soviet Union, Red China, Nazi Germany. The result: 120 million dead bodies. Not simply believing accusers is one of the massive, revolutionary changes we made in jurisprudence that have made this the greatest, freest country that’s ever existed. Oh, we went through a period when we simply believed the accusers, without any substantiating evidence. We called that the time of the “Salem Witch Trials.” Continue reading Don’t… “Believe the Women”
As in all episodes of such media-driven hysteria, our REACTIONS will focus on, and address, the teeny, tiny minority of cases that don’t remotely reflect real life for the overwhelmingly vast majority of people. Continue reading Alabama: Some Truths to Ponder
A sad fact: In the eyes of Hollywood at least, the only thing Harvey Weinstein did wrong was to be outlandishly pervy to… women. Continue reading Harvey Weinstein — The REAL Story (Part III)
There’s a deeper point: NPR treated an ACTUAL TRUE STATEMENT as something that only a retrograde, backward, woman-hating moron would say. In other words, to be “progressive,” you have to learn, repeat, protect, live… myths, lies and fabrications. Continue reading NPR Watch (9/20/17) — The Left Lives On Myths, Lies and Fabrications
Women have nearly completely bought into the patently and obviously ludicrous idea that men know nothing about women, while women know everything there is to know about men. Continue reading Pop Culture Watch (9/1/17) — Lord of the Flies… With Girls!
The most intriguing thing in all this is the sheer, jaw-dropping ignorance of Garcia-Navarro’s question to McEnroe. There’s no indication that the question was anything but perfectly serious. This is the abysmal level of ignorance to which NPR always sinks. The reason is simple: NPR’s hard-leftist ideology trumps everything. Lulu Garcia-Navarro simply couldn’t possibly have imagined that the best female tennis player in the world wasn’t also the best tennis player in the world, flat out. In Garcia-Navarro’s world, women are the best at everything. They’re smarter, wiser, better educated, better at sports… better people in every respect, than men. I guarantee that McEnroe’s response to her frankly idiotic question threw her completely for a loop. If Garcia-Navarro were to do the tiniest bit of digging, then she’d find that a whole lot of the fetid, stinking mess that is the leftist orthodoxy that Garcia-Navarro swallows uncritically, is mostly the same codswallop that she believed about Serena Williams.
