America’s New Selective Moral Outrage

Liberals may have made a mistake in attacking Roy Moore over sexual misconduct charges since news of Al Franken has come out.

Now it’s open season on Democrat sexual misdeeds. Hollywood is getting slammed, but it’s my guess that not much will change. Congress is a different matter. These people are in the money stealing business. They sit around and literally debate and vote on how much of our money they will allow us to keep.

Now we’re learning that Congress has been paying of charges of harassment (sexual and racial) for some time. $15 million of our money has been paid out to settle 260 cases. What we have not seen is the dismissal of those who were charged. Why? because “Congress doesn’t release that information, nor is it subject to Freedom of Information Act requests.” Now, isn’t that special.

Contact your Congressman and Senators to release the names of the guilty men and make them pay back the money.

Here’s a chart of the payouts since 2007. Now we need to match the names to the money:

Bill Clinton should have been forced to resign over the Monica Lewinsky affair. In a way, Bill Clinton’s exoneration and re-election have contributed to the situation we are now in. If a sitting President can enjoy sexual dalliances without any electoral consequences, then why can’t anyone else? Why do Democrats get away with it? Because they support liberal causes. Liberals are willing to put up with sexual abuse charges as long as the vote for abortion. Am I exaggerating? Not at all. “Feminist author Kate Harding said that she doesn’t think Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) should have to resign over the sexual assault allegations levied against him by broadcaster Leeann Tweeden.”

While she did decry Franken’s purported actions, Harding writes that there are likely other Democrats who have committed infractions similar to those alleged against Franken, and “if we set this precedent in the interest of demonstrating our party’s solidarity with harassed and abused women, we’re only going to drain the swamp of people who, however flawed, still regularly vote to protect women’s rights and freedoms.”

*****

“If the short-term ‘right thing’ leads to long-term political catastrophe for American women, I think we need to reconsider our definition of the right thing,” Harding writes. “Don’t just apologize and drop out of sight. Do penance. Live the values you campaigned on. Be a selfless champion for women’s rights.” (The Blaze)
