The Left started this #MeToo movement, in an effort to Associate the presidential candidate they lost to, with sexual assault, thereby supposedly delegitimizing him and his presidency.

It didn’t work to that end, but the blowback on their own people has been far more than they realized, and certainly more than has been good to them…. To the point where even The Daily Beast started getting embarrassed and pulled a rather comprehensive list which included apparently all too many liberal Democrats.

Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Weiner, Matt Lauer, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Al Franken, Charlie Rose… The list goes on and on and on,

Thing is, that’s what happens when you unleash the kind of weapon that #MeToo represents.

I wonder how many people who were instrumental in organizing and promoting the #MeToo attacks, truly understood the nature of the weapons they were deploying, and once released, how it would play out. I predicted at the time that it was going to backfire on them and my prediction was truer than my wildest dreams. The fact is, they started making accusations before they realized that the leftist icons couldn’t stand up to their own rhetorical judgments.. couldn’t stay within their own stated standards.

Ponder the idea that Bill Clinton was known to have committed actions of greater offense then any one of the people listed above.


So here’s the point of all of this. I begin to wonder if organizers of the attacks we’ve seen recently on anyone who dares speak anything but leftist ideology in public, say, Tim Allen for example…. Or if you like, Roseanne Barr…. Laura Ingraham, etc, inderstand that because of the efforts surrounding #MeToo, the old leftist double standard just isn’t going to fly anymore with the American voter. And for that matter the American pocketbook. If you’re going to charge your opposition with bigotry, you better make sure your own house is in order or you’re going to get called on it.

This in fact is the reaction of most people looking at what happened to Roseanne Barr, for example. They’re not tremendously interested in defending Roseanne Barr per se, but they are loudly calling out the double standards involved.

Make no mistake, these attacks both #metoo and the more recent Spade of nonsense involving Tim Allen Roseanne Barr and so on,are not about in the end preventing sexual assault or anything of the sort, they are not about standards impact of any kind, other than maintaining Democrat Party power.

These were my thoughts this afternoon. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled across Larry Elder over at Townhall:

.Disney also owns ESPN, the sports cable channel that employs Keith Olbermann, whose angry, unhinged tweets about President Donald Trump make Barr’s anti-Jarrett tweet look like a love note. Here’s one Olbermann tweeted at Ivanka Trump, Trump’s daughter: “Then tell your racist,eed white supremacist, neo-nazi father to get the f— out of our society.” One would think that Disney would find Olbermann’s tweets “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with (their) values.”

Indeed. This is the guy they hired 48 hours before firing Roseanne Barr. Roll that one around in your head for a few seconds. Does it sound to you like anybody gave a hoot how about standards of any kind when they hired this guy?

Speaking of Disney, let’s talk about the regulars of The View. After all, Roseanne Barr’s comments were so despicable and so bigoted that it stands to reason, ( as one of my correspondants quipped) that she will be asked to host The View next month.

As with the #MeToo attacks, this business is doing nothing but angering mainstream America to the point of never voting Democrat again. The movement is now out of control having gotten away from its Originators and is backfiring on their original purpose. To confirm that one need look no further than Joy Reid. I’ll let you investigate that one yourself.

At the end of the day these are tactics that are used by people who recognize clearly that they’re not going to make any gains in any other fashion. They don’t have anything else to bring to bear.

It’s called desperation, folks. And it’s going to eat the Left Alive.

Personally, I’m making popcorn.
