Yesterday, Senator Al Franken was exposed, with a photo of him groping the breasts of a fellow USO performer, while she slept. The media went crazy, Franken apologized, but there’s now an ethics investigation in the works to investigate this matter. A day later, some #Resist feminists are seething, because the woman, Leeann Tweeden, is a big Trump supporter and has sexually-provocative photos on her facebook page, including when she posed for Playboy. In interviews yesterday, she wore glasses and dressed modestly.
By yesterday evening, tweets were circulating among journalists that Roger Stone tweeted in the early morning hours that Franken was next up for exposure for “grabby” behavior. Then later in the morning Tweeden’s story came out.
The “Me Too” feminist rallying cry, urging women to speak out about sexual harassment and assault, is heading toward where the Left’s “fake news” is now. Trump’s sleaze master, Roger Stone, is going to hijack the phrase and use it as a weapon of mass destruction against the media and Left. Trump is already onboard with this plan, gleefully tweeting about Franken last night. Trump will begin to be the new ringmaster railing against the Left’s sexual abusers and showcasing their “Me Too” offenders…. This is going to get very ugly, very fast.
The #Resist feminists are crying foul, raging that this Franken story is all a setup. And it sure looks like it. The Moore story was a setup too, because the Washington Post has expended a lot of energy and effort to turn over every stone in Moore’s life. This morning Moore’s wife was railing that the Washington Post has come down there and talked to every person they have ever known. Journalists were tweeting about how this is “journalism” and how it’s done.
It’s journalism in the vein of what used to be called “tabloid journalism”. If you only seek negative information about a person and exclude all positive information, that’s really just character assassination and that’s where American journalism is in the era of #Resist to take down Trump by any means necessary and Trump’s war against the media and Left.
The “Me Too” campaign is now going to become a “nuclear” scorched earth information war. Where America will be when this war is over is hard to tell, but I feel confident in predicting it won’t be “great”.
