BACKFIRE: Why the Sexual Harassment Revolution FAILED

BACKFIRE: Why the Sexual Harassment Revolution FAILED

The Women’s Movement tried to pull a fast one.

In the years this movement has existed, women have become powerful. But you certainly wouldn’t know it by what you read today.

In the wake of Harvey Weinstein and the multitude of accusations since that have brought down politicians and media heavyweights, women conveniently play the victims. But are they?

As J.R. Dunn wrote,

The great Sexual Harassment Panic of 2017 is at last dying down.  We can safely look at a screen without being overwhelmed by stories in which yet another loser – or more than one – has been outed for mistreating or exploiting women.  Resignations have been myriad, careers have been destroyed, and one suicide has occurred.  We’re assured that the entire episode has been a watershed, that Things Have Changed permanently.  It’s an earthquake, says Meryl Streep.  Others hail “a new socio-sexual revolution.”

But what exactly has changed?  Earthquakes are noted for massive and universal destruction, revolutions for the guillotine and the firing squad.

In fact, a cursory examination of the scene reveals…absolutely nothing.  We stand at the same point we were at before it all happened.

A large number of creeps have been outed and ejected, and that’s generally a good thing.  These were all trash – Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Garrison Keillor, John Conyers.  They will not be missed.  They should have been nailed a long time ago, and they would have been nailed for something eventually.

But apart from that, nothing.  A new day?  Where?  A new system?  In what sense?

In fact, less than nothing.

What we’ve learned about the Women’s Movement is women were complicit in hurting other women. They ALL knew what was happening.

Women know of the “casting couch”, and happily assume the position without even a glance back to see who’s coming. And one glance at Weinstein tells you women couldn’t care less what was coming.

In every one of the allegations against these men, women throughout the food chain knew the deal. With Weinstein, multiple women helped set up other women. In other less egregious cases, the women complained, afterwards, of their working environments.

The system of which Dunn wrote needed women. And women happily aided and abetted various creeps.

Dunn continues,

By system, I’m not talking about a reporting system, an intervention system, a surveillance system, or any other bureaucratic or ideological structure designed to exert social control.  No, I’m speaking here about the kind of social system that, though largely invisible and widely unacknowledged (and nonexistent to feminist scholarship), does in fact exert sanctions and set limits on behavior.  This kind of systems, a shadow function of communities and societies, is the only effective method of controlling antisocial activity.  They are also the first to be eliminated by ideological liberalism.

And what systems were attacked?

Hollywood, a system run by Leftists. Women created these male bullies, and were all too happy to get ahead in the system, then run interference for these bullies.

Leftists dominated politics for decades. And we have taxpayers funding hush money for Congresspeople who commit sexual abuse.

Next media. With Fox News scandals in the rearview mirror, the focus falls on the Leftist bullies and perverts. Chris Matthews is the latest to be accused of lewd behavior. As The Daily Caller reported:

An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment.

Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company of others.

Before Matthews came Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, and Tavis Smiley, to name a few.

But what of the litany of print news media Leftist (redundant) male scoundrels too numerous to mention.

We now find ourselves with sexual harassment overload. Women even accused a porn legend of sexual abuse.

The Women’s Movement empowered women, or so I thought. And most of America agreed with me. The stories have become so ridiculous, that the Women’s Movement runs the risk of becoming a caricature of itself. Consider what a Trump accuser said about Donald Trump’s so-called abuse.

 The story is almost as laughable as the woman who said she felt violated from Trump seeing her “naked under a robe.”

Samantha Holvey, who was formerly Miss North Carolina, told Kelly she competed in the 2006 Miss USA contest when Trump would “personally inspected each woman” before the pageant.

 During Monday’s interview with Kelly and said she felt like a “piece of meat” who was only “there for his pleasure” prior to the competition. It was “something I had dreamed and worked so hard for, and these dreams never included a man coming backstage in the hair and make up area while I sat naked under a robe.”

And what of the woman who said Donald Trump committed the atrocity of “asking for her phone number.”!

She appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show, and we documented the exchange:

 Listen as one of Donald Trump’s accusers explains her sordid encounter with Trump.

That’s right, a single billionaire business mogul asked for her phone number. {cue music}

Because Lord knows that Donald Trump wouldn’t outright ask her out, as he’s too shy. He would need to do so through inuendo or the “modeling” ruse.

The real story is how Kelly sat there with a straight face, as this woman revealed her “encounter” with Donald Trump.

Thankfully, the Era of Trump undoes many of the Obama era nonsense. But the credit for this course correction belongs to the Women’s Movement.
