There is an unnerving reality unfolding before our very eyes on the left side of American politics these days, and even the most ardent democrats can no longer ignore it.
The year of 2017 will be remembered for a quite a few things. The rise of fake news, a booming economy, a resurgence of American conservatism, and a whole lot of sexual harassment.
The number of prominent people standing accused of improper sexual behavior in politics, Hollywood, and the mainstream media stands very near to triple digits today with the recent additions of news broadcaster Matt Lauer and Congressman John Conyers. Throughout this unmasking process, in which victims are finally receiving the respect that they deserve, a disturbing pattern in emerging: Nearly all of the offenders are staunchly liberal.
One such man is Representative John Conyers, who Washington democrats were adamantly defending. That is…until now.
“Thursday at her weekly press briefing Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called on Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) to resign as he is facing several allegations of sexual misconduct.
“Pelosi said, ‘The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday, are serious, disappointing, and very credible. It’s very sad. The brave women who came forward are owed justice. I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family and wish them well. However, Congressman Conyers should resign.'”
Nancy Pelosi’s response here is in stark contrast to the usual democratic way of dealing with such allegations, which is to attempt a quick sweep under the rug.
Could this be a signal of defeat from the left? Or is Nancy Pelosi having yet another of her bizarre, cerebral slip-ups? In either case, the democrats being forced to recognize and chastise one of their own is a new sensation in the nation’s capital, and can only signal the turning of the tides in American culture.
America’s return to conservative values has brought with it a newfound respect for everyone, including those men and women who were once the silent victims of liberalism’s sexual violence problem. Nancy Pelosi and John Conyers are one the wrong side of this tidal shift, and could soon find themselves searching for safe harbor.
