Look Who is Racist Now

Many years ago I discovered a dirty little secret about left-wing ideologues in the Democratic Party.  Yes, I know these terms are largely redundant.  The few remaining Democrats who don’t fit that description are either political neophytes or hopeless optimists.    They still believe the party line about protecting the poor and working class.

The dirty little secret is that when liberals don’t have an argument they can sell, rather than discuss policy, they call you names.  “Racist” and “sexist” are two of the most overused.

Now, after the Kavanaugh debacle, they have been exposed.  The liberals, who vowed to defeat this brilliant jurist no matter what the cost, have turned that argument back on themselves.  They wanted — and still want — to convict Kavanaugh of sexual assault with no evidence simply because he is a white male.   Continue reading “Look Who is Racist Now”

Time to Forgive

“To Err is Human, to Forgive Devine” Alexander Pope 1688-1744

A cadre of former Trump haters was recently asked about the president’s past sins which include allegations of sexual improprieties, one night stands and/or affairs with women.  To this House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi replied,  (parentheses mine)

“I do not believe that it is my place to question the accounts put forth by the women but I do find myself asking that if we are examining (his) industry (building & entertainment) as it existed decades before through the lens of 2018 should we also discuss a path to learning, reconciliation, and forgiveness?”

Rep. Maxine Water’s chimed in,

To reach a point where we can accept some space between zero accountability and complete destruction, we must first grapple with the issue of equivalency. If we paint episodes of vulgar and deeply regrettable behavior from (a decade or more) ago with the same brush as serial criminal behavior, we will never move forward and, more importantly, we eschew the complicated nuances of context for the easier path of absolutes.”

The View’s Joy Behar summed things up:

“Outrage is a valuable commodity…but its usefulness can be diminished by overuse. And understanding and learning from the past is the only way towards a future that reflects real change.”

This call for civility, forgiveness and understanding for a man accused of sexual harassment over a decade ago, but who has been a champion of women, promoting them in a field that had previously barred them from holding positions of power and influence, unfortunately was not directed at Trump by these three women.

No! All of the above was in a statement from CBS Films president Terry Press in defense of CBS Corporation chairman and CEO, Les Moonves who was accused of sexual misconduct by six women.   It followed even more forceful statements of support by CBS executives, Ad Sales chief Jo Ann Ross and head of daytime Angelica McDaniel.

This was not unlike the statements of support from females in Congress and other positions of influence for Bill Clinton after he was impeached for charges related to his sexual involvement with an intern, no less, in the hallowed Oval Office.

Clinton was viewed by his supporters as just too valuable to the country, in general, and the women’s movement, in particular, to be hoisted by his own petard.

Isn’t it a shame that our current president, who has done so much to turn this country around, while taking no salary for his work as the nation’s chief executive, isn’t given the same consideration?  After all, the charges against him are at least a decade or more old and don’t involve the workplace.

Men like Moonves, post-Clinton, probably will not survive.  Some shouldn’t.  However,  to allow Moonves to be forgiven would, indeed, be viewed as a double standard for those who hate Trump so much that they now believe any past sexual sins should disqualify him from holding the highest office in the land.  They want Trump impeached so badly many seem willing to believe any charge against any man, no matter how spurious, how ludicrous or how old, just to justify their claim against the president’s legitimacy.

Trump, like Moonves, is from another era, where men often measured their manhood against their ability to seduce women.  Even if they had no intention of doing anything improper, they were often guilty of bragging about this ability to other men.  Some of these men actually viewed making suggestive remarks or flirting as a way to give a woman a compliment.  I’ve encountered my share.  Smart women either changed jobs, ignored these clumsy advances or found a way to let a man know this was not acceptable while letting him keep his dignity.

However, none of the women who claim Trump had affairs with them or one-night stands or gave them unwanted attention were his employees as was the case Moonves.  In fact, many sought his attention.

Trump is well-known for promoting women in his industry like Louise Sunshine who rose to executive vice-president of the Trump organization.  Sunshine worked for Trump for 15 years and has admitted that he often chided her about her appearance.  However, she wasn’t offended.  She said, “It was a reminder that I wasn’t perfect…It was just his way.”

They and the others who were promoted by Trump defend him to the hilt and forgave him for his imperfections.  Isn’t it time the rest of the country took a deep breath and did the same.

 

Haspel Fight Proves Democrats are the Anti-Woman Party

Gina Haspel, president Trump’s nominee to head the CIA, is my hero!  I’ve never met the woman but from what I know about her she is the real deal — a real feminist in the truest definition of the word.

She is not the radial cheap imitation so popular with the left — the kind of feminist who says, “I want that job.  I may not have earned it, but I’m entitled to it because of some liberal perfect-world quota system that says what you do is not as important as your gender, race, sexual preference, etc., etc. etc.”  By the way, to be the kind of feminist acceptable to the left you also have to pledge allegiance to the right to kill one’s unborn child for any reason through the full nine months of pregnancy, including through the birth process itself.

The current queen of the anti-real feminists is Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) who first praised Haspel’s nomination and her year as deputy director of the agency saying,  “I have spent some time with her … We have had dinner together.  We have talked.  Everything I know is that she has been a good deputy director of the CIA.” Continue reading “Haspel Fight Proves Democrats are the Anti-Woman Party”

Sex or Gender? (At One University Reason Prevailed)

On Monday, reason prevailed as Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s president, Dr. Michael Driscol, announced that senior Lake Ingle would be allowed to return to his religious studies class needed for graduation.

Ingle was kicked out of that class by Professor Allison Downie and accused of violating the schools Academic Integrity Code.  What was Ingle’s crime?  He dared to question the premise  that there are more than two genders.

For the uninitiated, discussions on college campuses and most public schools have turned into politically correct indoctrinations where no contrary facts or opinions are allowed.  If one dares to question one’s teacher or professor, the student is often “shamed” into silence.  Hardly a healthy environment for learning!   Continue reading “Sex or Gender?

March for Life vs. Women’s March: A Study in Contrasts

Last weekend saw tens of thousands flock to Washinton, DC and major cities throughout the United States to exercise a basic right of individuals in a free society:  The right to rally and march in support of a cause:  One side gathered to support life; the other side gathered to support the right to take the life of the most vulnerable among us, a child in the womb.

Forty-five years after the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, the two sides show up on or near the anniversary of arguably the most controversial decision ever handed down by the nation’s highest court, a decision that now hangs by a legal thread.

However, for the last two years, the pro-abortion side has morphed into an anti-Trump protest. Homosexuals, transexuals, illegal immigrants, witches, prostitutes, socialists filled the streets along with women who were not shy about expressing their distaste for the current occupant of the White House.

The marches were a study in contrasts:  One march was angry, loud, disrespectful and crude.  The other peaceful, respectful and at times even joyful.   Continue reading “March for Life vs. Women’s March: A Study in Contrasts”

Why I Believe Judge Roy Moore

As this nation’s first female television sportscaster,  I can tell you something about sexual harassment, although we didn’t call it that in those days.  It was either a proposition or simply boorish behavior.

My first boss, who was married, came on to me.  When I said, “Thanks but no thanks,”  he tried to get me fired.  He failed.  Then, he preceded to make my life miserable at work.  It was a cold war until I moved and went to work at another television station.

Once I had a co-worker who continually hit on me.  He was a good man and I knew it wasn’t serious, but his constant attention and suggestive remarks were annoying.   In some strange way he though this was flattering to a woman.  One day I decided to take matters in hand.  The next time it happened, I took a flying leap and landed in his arms in full view of everyone.  He was so embarrassed, he never did it again.

Working in an almost entirely all-male environment, I found most men to be honorable, kind, respectful and extremely fair.

However, in my lifetime I have seen many men destroyed by a false accusation from a woman.  Continue reading “Why I Believe Judge Roy Moore”

Miss America — The Latest Trump Bashing Spectacle (Whatever Happened to World Peace?)

As hurricane Irma ripped into Florida, Miss America’s finalists were bated into bashing President Trump. While it is too early to assess the damage, my guess is the lasting effects on this historic piece of Americana will linger long after Florida has recovered and they will not be good.

The grand finale of the iconic Miss America Pageant always has been questions thrown at the finalists.  It has been the undoing of many young women in a contest where poise is as important as one’s overall beauty and talent.   The objective was to answer the question confidently without saying anything too controversial or dumb.   Continue reading “Miss America — The Latest Trump Bashing Spectacle (Whatever Happened to World Peace?)”
