The left is in knots because of the old, fat, disgusting bastard Harvey Weinstein.
For some reason he is not getting the across-the-board defense by the entire left the way Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy did. Maybe it’s because Weinstein doesn’t set policy. Maybe because donor money doesn’t seem to be getting the job done. Whatever the reason, feminists are not letting the left get away with their usual idiocy when erecting a double standard.
Take for instance, John Legend-in -his- own -mind. This imbecile said something that would normally go without challenge, giving the dumb bastard the feeling that he’s intelligent.
Well, we know he’s not intelligent, and in this Weinstein-climate even some of his fellow lefty feminists are letting him have it, leaving him tilting his head like a confused doberman.
The only way to make this worse for Republicans would be if the Republican President was caught on tape bragging about sexual assault ..
Does Trump’s behavior excuse Weinstein’s?
And, if Dems rightly condemned Trump, then they also should condemn Weinstein.
Sure, we should condemn him. And neither of them should be President of the United States.
Sounds reasonable enough. That’s when Legend offered up couple of other tweets, ones that we know to be idiotic, but in another time he’d get away with.
Holding a movie exec and the leader of the free world to the same standard is ludicrous.
My point is that putting them on the same plane is ridiculous. If Trump were just a reality show host and exec producer, then it makes sense
uh oh. Let the games begin—
I must be reading (thread) this wrong, because it reads like one man’s history of sexual assault is less vile because of his profession.
The standard is: don’t sexually assault women. It’s the same for everyone. This should be obvious.
What standard would that be, sir? Not raping women? Should ALL men not be held to that standard?
Um, WHAT? Holding men to decency is defined by power-levels?
Are you kidding us?
I’m pretty sure we should hold everyone to the same standard of “don’t be a sexual predator” regardless of their job, my man.
Did the wokeness rot your brain? No one should be a sex predator. It’s not a particularly high standard for any man to meet.
Sorry hundreds of women who Weinstein may have sexually harassed, your harassment isn’t as horrible because he’s just a movie exec.
No word from Legend yet.
