It would appear that specific ‘supposed’ GOP members are attempting to insert a bit of chaos into the fray of the Political mess that is now defined as Republican or GOP parlay. It’s something like a boxing match, the bell has rung and the two boxers are dancing in the ring taking jabs and making a few critical connections before dancing some more.
This time the young Mr. Jeff Flake would seem to be trying to make a name for himself as a contender in the ring. Joining the ranks of McCain and Graham as they fight to displace Trump, Flake’s motives are less than flattering. Since his 2013 tanked popularity rating, he has been joined at the hip with McCain, making sure that he votes exactly the same, walks the walk and talks the talk.
While his platforms does have a few conservative positions, he routinely sides with Democrats on major policies including – illegal immigration. No one is opposed to immigration when it is done legally, within the bounds of our Constitution, and in compliance with our society, laws and education. Yet for some reason, this nuance fails to be acknowledged, and instead replaced with ‘evil conservatives don’t want to help the poor and the needy’.
Interestingly, Flake’s stated opposition to Trump stems from the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump makes crude comments about women. And it is this same mantra that appears to be making the rounds in levies against various conservative media hosts. Fox News – in particular.
Of course it’s a good tactic, utilizing women as a target to dismantle the largest conservative media outlet. No one can argue for the pointed perpetrator because they would then be labeled a sexist and dragged under the proverbial bus as well. As such, women are making accusations and sourcing them ‘anonymously to the media requiring investigations, firings, and suspensions.
Eric Bolling is the latest ‘victim’ to be charged anonymously.
Not alone, he joins; Charles Payne, Jamie Horowitz, Roger Ailes, and Bill O’Reilly, all of who have been charged within just the last nine months. Payne’s are unique because it would seem to be an extra-marital affair gone sour as the woman tried to gain notoriety through Payne and her attempts failed
What is Sexual Harassment?
Legal definition: Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that tends to create a hostile or offensive work environment.
The term ‘unwelcome’ has come to be the loaded gun. Apparently, a woman can consent, but still claim it was ‘unwelcome’. While sexual harassment is a very real and very manipulative factor in the business world, it seems to be expanding rather exponentially into nearly every arena from universities to Uber, to science fields, to simply walking down the street. One woman’s monetary reward won’t change what has become a ‘culture’. To change a societal response requires changing the way it is portrayed in the media. The Sex Industry has definitely fostered this burgeoning norm which objectifies a woman and objectifies sex.
Trump’s behavior, Fox News employee’s behavior, these are just a very miniscule atom of the larger universal picture that is not being dismantled, but instead is being used now as a tool to dismantle a select few.
Flake is attempting to capitalize on a pivitol moment and use it for his own gain and agenda instead of addressing what has become an out-of-control epidemic that will only get worse as we do absolutely nothing about it. Perhaps Flake would be better advised to tackle the real problem, the Porn Industry, the Sexual Exploitation Industry, instead of one man’s stupid quip.
With psychologists normalizing Porn, they are actually normalizing objectification of women and sex. They are supporting sexual harassment indirectly. In the UK they are deciding whether it will be therapeutic to give pedophiles robotic boys and girls to ‘play with’. Is that a cure?
Of course, given that somewhere between 70% and 90% of men enjoy the use of pornography, tackling that as a source of the learned behavior of sexual harassment is about nil to none.
SO, Mr. Jeff Flake, I would suggest if your hysterical reaction to Mr. Trump and his recorded statements is truly indefensible, attack the Porn Industry, the Sex Trafficking Industry, the sexual exploitation industry and the immigration issue that brings completely different sexual values and culture into the mainstream US and Europe. But then, you’d actually have to do something instead of bandwagoning with McCain and Graham… and I doubt that would uphold your true agenda.
