The Moral High ground to the immoral is only a strategic position that can be pursued or relegated to obscurity based on the political needs of those in power.
When accusations alone become the basis for decision making the entire process of “innocent until proven guilty” is no longer the rule of the land. It doesn’t matter how credible or how “serious” the accusation is, they remain accusations until proven. Our rule of law dictates that a person is innocent until they are proven guilty.
Al Franken was accused and subsequently forced from office, by his own party. He obviously did not want to resign but the question is, are the accusations sufficient in determining guilt or innocents? They were not. I am not a fan of Al Franken, I only liked him because of his portrayal of the effeminate Stuart Smalley, who kept telling himself, while looking in a mirror, that people liked him, no one really believed any of what he was saying, that’s why it was funny.
The problem and the truth is that no one really likes Al Franken. He is abusive, cruel, and weird but was he guilty? I don’t know, do you really know? There is some evidence, but does it fall into the category of sexual predator or is it just weird? When the accusations surfaced it was more like Stuart Smalley, the weird guy, rather than the sexual predator of the Weinstein ilk. Do we now judge based on personality types and convict based on if he fits into a preconceived mold or do we provide the Due Process guaranteed by our justice system?
When the accusations are enough to convict then there is no need for due process, no need for facts or evidence of any kind. The accusations are the judge, jury, and executioner all rolled into one neat, unassailable package of convenience. The Media has become that hangman, that hanging judge and malicious sheriff manipulating the politicians (or is it the other way around) sending them out like have vigilantes ready to string up any who get in their way or serve their purpose.
Judge Moore’s accuser has recanted her story of the yearbook and basically exonerated the Judge, on that account. He decided to fight back and for a time he has landed successfully on his feet, but for how long? Who will be next? Who will accuse who of some misconduct from years past and who will be forced to resign because the company, the party or group, demands a resignation because of the “Seriousness of the Accusation”?
Many are guilty and for them, I would suggest resigning early like the Weinstein’s and the Spacy’s did, but for those who are truly not guilty, make the anonymous voices prove your wrongdoing. You are innocent until proved guilty, that is still the law of the land.
There are some Women who are applauding this strategy and the outcomes of destruction and are feeding themselves on the discarded carcasses of their victims. Rule of law means nothing to them; Due Process is just an idea that gets in the way of their mission for control. All men are evil, all men need to be controlled and marginalized with the new saying around the media being “it’s time for women to be in charge”, repeated by former President Barrack Obama, maybe he wants his wife to run for something and maybe, in this case, she would be a better leader than he was, just saying…
There is much more to this issue than just the idea that woman make better leaders. This is a planned and concerted effort to displace President Trump and to force him to leave the office of the President through the implications of impropriety and accusation that have been established by the sacrifices of other politicians who find it "necessary" to clean house, to make room for more deserving leaders, any leader will do, just not Trump.
I know this is just a theory, but I think my theory should hold as much weight as an unfounded accusation. It all starts with the left losing an election that to most was a slam dunk victory for Hillary. The first step was the Russian collusion, but that is failing fast, so they had to rethink their tactics and someone came up with the idea to capitalize on the avalanche of sexual harassment cases; it would be easy to implicate President Trump but only after the left captured the moral high ground by sacrificing its own despicable members.
Harvey Weinstein, Keven Spacey, James Toback, Ben Affleck…. high profile, big named targets that were expendable. Then came the politicians.
In politics the CNN article http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/25/us/list-of-accused-after-weinstein-scandal-trnd/index.html only mentions President George HW Bush, it should have mentioned Wesley Goodman, Steve Lebsock, Paul Rosenthal, Dan Schoen and John Conyers…Accusations only, some are more credible than others but, no due process has been allowed or considered, only the accusations.
The left has taken a very strong and moral stance against these accused but the left fails to mention the associations they had and the excuses they made over the years that allowed these, presumed sexual predators to exist. The point of all this is credibility. With that new-found credibility, they will demand that President Trump also step down due to the “seriousness of the accusations” and “for the good of the country”.
None of it has to be true, none of it has to be proven, it only has to be said and repeated for the seriousness to trump the truth. This is just a theory, a theory that I hope is wrong. It makes me shudder to consider the possibility that we have leaders that will stoop to something so low and dramatic just to get their way. This theory does have some basis from past performances by the left, and the right, the end justifies the means and in the case of our current political leadership that means getting rid of Donald Trump.
