#MeToo

Media Curiously Incurious About MLK Story

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

American journalists, who normally salivate over throwing mud on historical figures and find themselves in hysteria mode over the sexual conduct of comedians, producers, anchormen, and those far lower on the totem pole than King, balk at reporting on the finds of a writer to whom they once awarded a Pulitzer. #ThemToo. Apart from King emerging as a secular saint posthumously, making unflattering truths a sort of blasphemy, the allegations put off because they strike as so off putting. Nobody, perhaps least of all Garrow — a member of the Democratic Socialists of America — wants to write something nasty about a man responsible for so much good.

No Heroes Left: The MLK Revelations

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The disturbing revelations of MLK's sexual past were more than that for me. I spent the summer of 1966 as a civil rights worker in Sumter, South Carolina, living in a rooming house owned by MLK's cousin, the local mortician. I never met King personally, although I met several family members and saw him speak twice. He was certainly a hero to me then, probably more than anyone in our history, sad as that is to think now. He still is for what he believed then and did then, but not for what he was. Maybe I should leave it there. It's the old Shakespearean dichotomy between the doer and the deed.

Sorry, Biden. America Doesn’t Want a #MeToo President

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

One of the biggest differences between Republican and Democratic pols right now is their attitudes about #MeToo. Republicans value time-honored principles like due process and the presumption of innocence. Democrats have no patience for it. If an accusation happens to you, know that most of the Democrats running for president, including Joe Biden, won’t have your back. Sexual harassment is a grave matter, and accusations need to be taken seriously. But both the accused and the accuser deserve fairness. Sadly, that’s not on the Democratic Party agenda.

Breaking - Accuser Recants - Democrat Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg Accused Of Sexual Assault

BREAKING: The accuser has recanted charges that would have been a serious blow to rising Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s carefully crafted image as a paragon of modern homosexual domesticity. The a 21-year old man, Hunter Kelly, now claims he never accused Buttigieg of sexually assaulting him earlier this year and the whole thing is a case of identity theft.

Scenes From the Ruling Class, Schneiderman Style

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

It remains revealing how close Schneiderman came to getting away it. He was an anti-Trump zealot, for whom crusading against “corruption” (which in the end is just virtue-signaling blather) was as much a form of instant gratification as his boozing, pill-popping, and rough sex. Schneiderman’s demise has an accidental quality to it, similar to the avalanche that submerged Bill Cosby, set in motion by a stand-up comic. Had Schneiderman dated Gloria Steinem, who knows what would have happened? He would probably still be in power, waiting in a MSNBC green room to appear for a segment on Trump’s lack of morals.
