There is a good chance that 2017 will be remembered as much for its scandals as for its vastly important victim awakening in the realm of workplace harassment.
Over the course of several months, we have been inundated with story after story of horrific instances of workplace sexual harassment in Hollywood and the halls of Washington D.C., beginning with perhaps the most vile of them all: The tale of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of inappropriate and illegal behavior while promising young Tinseltown starlets all the trappings of fame and fortune. The man, and I use that term purely biologically, is facing over 60 individual accusers at this time.
Now, with a number of politicians being fingered in the ideological revolution of these victims, including Al Franken and John Conners, victims of the original modern pervert President are heading to the nation’s capital to demand justice for all victims.
“Women speaking out about the men who have sexually assaulted, abused or harassed them will take to the national stage on Wednesday where organizers and past victims will call for Sen. Al Franken (D-MI) and Reps. John Conyers (D-MI) and Joe Barton(R-TX) to resign.
“All three lawmakers have been accused of sexual misconduct, including unwanted sexual advances and groping, and, in Barton’s case, texting explicit messages and a photo of himself naked.
“Some of the women who will be at the National Press Club in D.C. have been speaking out for years about former president Bill Clinton assaulting or abusing them, including Juanita Broaddrick (who said Clinton raped her), Paula Jones (whose suit against Clinton for sexual harassment was settled before a trial) and Leslie Millwee, (who said she was stalked and assaulted three times by Bill Clinton while she was a TV reporter in Fort Smith, Arkansas.”
The horrendous stories that these women attempted to relay in the 1990’s were largely ignored by the media, thanks in part to the mainstream’s liberal bias and the previous generations’ beliefs regarding sexual harassment.
Now, however, we are living in a very acute time in which these former sins must be acknowledged, if not adjudicated. Bill Clinton is no different than these new offenders, and could quite possibly have caused even more harm than either Conyers or Franken. Justice has certainly not been served in this regard, and maybe, just maybe, these victims can make a step forward in that process.
