It’s long been a talking point of mine that if America didn’t have double-standards, we’ve have no standards at all, and nowhere is that coming into focus more than with the current situation with Joe Biden and accusations of sexual impropriety. Two women have come forward talking about how Joe Biden had touched them inappropriately when they were working for him. While one should always maintain a level of skepticism with such accusations and not just immediately jump to anyone’s defense, there is something to consider in this – haven’t we seen a TON of videos where Joe gets handsy with women and little girls? His weird hands-on approach to women has been a talking point for his detractors and a point of avoidance for his campaign for months. So the idea that he got extra handsy and outright groped and inappropriately touched women who worked for him doesn’t seem that strange to me.
However, you’d think that once two women came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Biden, the media would be all over this. After all, that’s a serious accusation to make. After how much they went after Brett Kavanaugh, this sounds like they should be all #MeToo-ing the shit out of this. However, the mainstream media (with the exception of Fox News and those who support the Bernie campaign, which we’ll get into later) is radio silence about this. They aren’t even mentioning it at all. Initially, Yahoo News reported on it, then had the story moved to the back of their Sports section, so it would never be found by anyone. That’s weight, right? If the media does care about taking women who allege sexual crimes seriously, then they should be taking this as seriously as the last one that they blew up to such an extent that it actually did more harm to them than good. Right?
Okay, so the media has decided that their partisan hack nature isn’t going to slow them down from not saying anything negative about the party’s chosen candidate with dementia who has every interview with him not knowing what to say and constantly having to look at his notes. What about online? How many blue checkmarks on Twitter who have things like “#BelieveAllWomen, #MeToo, or Feminist” in their bios were all about this and looking to try and get this story out? What’s that? None? Well that’s funny. Oh, I’m sorry. It’s not that they are doing nothing to talk about this. They are talking, but what they are saying is all resoundingly negative. To a degree that is almost comical.
There are three major reactions that I have seen in the discourse about this. First, saying that she’s lying. That one is especially ironic, considering these are the SAME people who say that women are to be believed when they allege sexual misconduct, no matter what. Second, saying that she’s a Russian bot/Bernie supporter. Ah yes, the old “Russia!” take. Because that worked SO well when Shillary was running for office, right? Let’s go back to this. Back to saying that everything is Russia’s fault. You almost have to give it to the party Democrats who will swallow whatever the party gives them without any skepticism or concern of any kind. Finally, there is my absolute favorite of the takes about this. The line that just blows my fucking mind because it says SO much about these people and their values. The third argument is – Trump raped more women! Or at least that he was accused by more women of sexual impropriety.
That argument is just the absolute standing refutation for EVERYTHING that #MeToo was supposed to represent. If you can have a woman accuse a man of sexual misconduct, and your defense of the accused is that someone else was worse, then you don’t actually believe ANY of what you have said in all your discourse about how all women are to be uncritically believed, without exception. “Oh, but not this bitch! Fuck her!” You realize that these people don’t actually have a belief structure. Or they do, but ONLY when it involves someone that they don’t like. Once someone that they agree with, politically, has to face the music, you will deny it, call the woman a lying whore who is being put up to it by someone else, or even saying that someone else did it and because it’s someone else, that’s worse! These people don’t care about fighting for women’s rights. They care about fighting against a political opponent, and when it’s someone that they agree with being accused, they throw all their values out with the bathwater. Now they are just as virulently denying as ANY of their stereotypical rape denial caricatures.
What’s more, it isn’t just the women on Twitter with the checkmarks by their names. It’s also groups who are supposed to represent women like these in these instances, like Time’s Up, who was the group who was involved in bringing accusations against Harvey Weinstein. The group’s stated goal is to help women who are afraid of going up against powerful people with claims of sexual misconduct, and they turn her away. Cited reason? He’s a Presidential candidate. Lawyers have come out saying that this argument is bullshit. What a shock. So what is the real reason? Well, may have something to do with Anita Dunn being Biden’s campaign manager, and her being the head of a legal firm that Time’s Up works with. So there’s the conflict of interest. They don’t want to jeopardize their precious business relationship with the legal firm to help a woman who came to them looking for help going up against a powerful man. Ethics? What’s that? Part of me can almost hear the checkmarks making the argument, “if they jeopardize their relationship with the law firm, they can’t help more women down the road!” So fuck this broad, am I right?
I’ve long held to the idea that feminism as we understand it now has NOTHING to do with actually helping women. There was that great article a whole bunch of years ago about the feminist woman who had the female equality shirts made in sweat shops in the third world that exploit women. Nobody cared. Back in 2014 you had that Feminist Frequency bitch talking all about empowering women, yet constantly belittling or outright refusing to acknowledge gay women in her criticisms. There was that story of a woman in Russia who tied up a guy and raped him for several days, and the feminists were cheering that on like it is the best thing ever. Hypocrisy and modern feminism are nothing new.
The thing that really grinds my gears is the fact that they are NEVER called on it. I said before that the only media outlets talking about this in any extensive way are almost-exclusively Fox News and outlets that are pro-Bernie Sanders. This has helped the argument of cunts who think like this to a criminal degree, because now they can say that this proves their point. Except it doesn’t. If anything, it just goes to show how ALL of these big groups and the people in them are in collusion. That it’s all just a big circle-jerk for the rich and powerful who own this country. And just like in 2016, when the actual real left in this country who wants to make things better doesn’t go out and vote for Joe dementia having and handsy Biden, they will blame us. It will be our fault for not capitulating to what they want. Because why try and do ANYTHING for your base, when you have to appeal to the moderates?
Calling it now, the next four Presidents are all going to be Republicans, because the Democrats are just going to keep doing this strategy. I’ve reached the conclusion that the party doesn’t actually care if they win. Rich people own the DNC, so why should they bother? It isn’t going under anytime soon. Call me a Russian bog, say like you did to the women who came forward and ask me how Putin’s cock tastes (not kidding, that was among all kinds of fun things said to these women for coming forward. Reminds me of that song Chris Ray Gun did about punching a Nazi), or just say I’m a toxic “Bernie bro.” The party takes responsibility for fuck-all, so why should I expect them to actually admit that they are wrong about how they treat people who disagree with them.
