Don’t rush to judgment! He’s a progressive!

He may be a lech but he’s our lech!

This is rich! The super-woke progressives at The Nation are decrying the rush to judgment every time a woman claims sexual harassment.

aoc20180910-72dpi-bg“We cannot flourish as a society if a single accusation out of the blue upends an election overnight and ruins a 30-year career in politics,” cries The Nation contributor Katha Pollitt, author of the book Reclaiming Abortion Rights.

If you are actually, factually not guilty of what you are accused of, how can you not appear defensive when you defend yourself? If you are innocent, you are the victim.Accusations are a weapon anyone can use. The vast majority of #metoo perpetrators have been men, but women too stand to lose if a mere allegation sends allies running for the hills and mortally wounds a candidate.

“The stakes are too high, to jump to conclusions,” Ms. Pollitt bleats.

Ah, yes. The stakes! The ones that are too high to jump to conclusions. The accused just happens to be “leading progressive candidate” in the upcoming New York mayor’s race, one Howard Stringer. Had it been, say, Matt Gaetz— well, his stakes are not high at all. Not an ally. All those campus men presumed guilty under the Obama/Biden administration. Screw ’em!

Blaska’s Bottom LineWould Ms. Pollitt’s injunction v. rushing to judgment apply to the believers in Michael Brown’s “Hands up, don’t shoot” or other proven mythologies (like Madison’s own Althea Bernstein)?

Where would progressivism be without situational ethics?

    I Googled “Harold Stringer – sexual harassment”… Got all of THREE articles: The NYT, Politico & NBC-NYC. The 1.3 million other “hits”? Mostly paeans to his Sony career. Yep, seems about right these days of advocacy-oriented journalism.

    Isn’t amazing just how much crap gets swept under the rug when it comes to a Democrat man who is fooling around. In my lifetime I can think of many. Jack and Bobby Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Hunter Biden, Bill Gates, just to name a few.

    Hey, and let’s not pay any attention to that man behind the curtain like state government officials to include the Governor and the Attorney General right here in Wisconsin and officials in cities like Green Bay and Kenosha and Madison who basically said “Piss Off” to Wisconsin State law and allowed outside political agencies to gather up and count votes. Allowed for early voting in drop boxes in city parks. No, pay no attention to the law which was very clear on how Wisconsinites can and should vote.

    And this all from someone who pays no attention to the 60+ million, think about it folks, 60+ million, that’s 60,000,000+ babies right here in the U.S. that have been aborted since 1973.

    I hear Hell is going to be really crowded. Better reserve early and get your spot if you want to go there. It’s easy, the road to Hell is wide and well paved with good intentions. Those of you who lie, cheat, steal and murder, especially those who murder the innocent will be held to account and judged for every thing you’ve done on this earthly plain.

    I like this scene from the movie, “The Book of Eli” as it explains it far better than my poor powers of speech ever could. I especially like this quote from that scene. “Cursed be the ground for our sake. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for us. For out of the ground we were taken, for the dust we are… and to the dust we shall return”

    Yes, to the dust we shall all return.

      “Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn. Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.”
