No one should be surprised about Weinstein, and few should be complaining about it

Published

Yes, you read that title right.

NO one should be surprised about Harvey Weinstein, nor about the other revelations of sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood that I’m certain will be forthcoming in the weeks, months, and years to come. Few people should be complaining about it.

Allow me to explain

It is very hard to write about this, but I feel there is a lesson here. A child in my family was being abused by his stepfather, unknown to the rest of the family. He had emotional and behavioral problems that were long attributed to disorders of various types, but that we now know are likely the result of PTSD. He is now being treated and protected and being set upon the right path.

Being set upon the right path is not something that happens for many children in show business. There is obviously something wrong with so many of them though. Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus, and so many others who display overly sexualized behavior have often been chalked up to youngsters who have ridiculous wealth and fame and no reality check.

There’s probably SOME truth in that, but what if it is more? What if these young adults who grew up in Hollywood did so being sexually abused by the likes of Weinstein and have been taught that this is “normal” behavior? Might their current behavior not be reflective of that?

Couple this with the fact that Hollywood regularly produces movies and shows that glorify all kinds of sexual abuse. Have you SEEN Game of Thrones? Why would so many in Hollywood produce this crap unless it came from years of believing that this was normal, acceptable behavior?

No, I’m not the least bit surprised Weinstein did all of these things. I promise you he wasn’t alone. The feigned shock from the others in Tinseltown was just an effort to cover up their own crimes.

Brave or accessories

Some view the men and women coming forward now as brave. I see them as accessories. They could have done something about this long ago, but they refused to because being rich and famous was more important to them than protecting future victims.

At the same time these actors, actresses, and movie executives were silent on men like Weinstein they had the audacity to be hair-on-fire mad about Donald Trump. Trump has his own long history of sexual abuse allegations dating back to his first wife Ivana who accused him of raping and beating her. It doesn’t change the fact that the Hollywood liberals were unbelievably hypocritical in complaining about Trump.

Now you even have those that are saying a President and a movie producer shouldn’t be held to the same standard.

Well, first of all, NONE of this activity should accept from ANYONE. Ever!

Second, those complaining about “Republicans electing THEIR sexual predator’s President” need to shut up. Many of them were old enough to elect Bill Clinton. They certainly had no problem trying to elect his chief enabler, his wife Hillary.

In retrospect though, it’s easy to understand why the Ashley Judd’s of the world complain about Weinstein but had no problem with Hillary. Judd did nothing about Weinstein when she most certainly could have, so condemning Hillary Clinton would have been condemning herself.

Yes Liberals, you’re hypocrites on this.

Republicans and Conservatives: You are guilty as well

Now, to Republicans and conservatives (no, these are NOT the same thing), you also have a problem. We all visited our righteous indignation on Bill Clinton and those now who supported him for years. You now want to join me in condemning the hypocrisy of those who slammed Trump but protected Weinstein and God only knows who else.

Most of you don’t get to. You’re just as big of hypocrites as they are.

If you voted for Trump, you’re the same as they are. I, and others like me, warned you that voting for Trump is to surrender the moral high ground. You did it anyway. Many of you voted for Trump to “stop Hillary.” Congratulations. You did it. Donald Trump is President of the United States. Hillary Clinton is a historical footnote.

All it cost you was your credibility and integrity for the rest of your lives. Credibility is like glass. Once cracked it is not easily repaired. On the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault at least, if you voted for Trump, however reluctantly it might have been, your credibility wasn’t cracked, it was SHATTERED. I truly hope it was worth it.

So, Leftists, if you supported Bill Clinton, and Hollywood if you covered for Weinstein, you don’t get to say anything about Trump or any other Republican in the future on this issue ever again.

And if you voted for Trump, you don’t get to complain about Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Harvey Weinstein, or any of the many, many others I’m sure will follow.

Short version, most of you should just shut up, and focus on this issue inside your own world.

THIS is why keeping your credibility and integrity are so very, very important. I still have mine. Liberals haven’t had any in decades. I’m sorry to see so many Republicans and even some conservatives throw away theirs so cheaply. I truly hope it was worth it, but in my heart of hearts, I know it won’t be because in a few years Trump will be gone, most of anything good he doesn’t accomplish will be overturned, and you’ll still be crying “but Gorsuch.” Your credibility and integrity on this issue won’t ever be coming back. Ever.

The truth about Thanksgiving

The truth about Thanksfiving

Thanksgiving for many of us has been presented as a time when diversity worked. When a group of people who came seeking refuge from religious persecution was saved by another group of people. A time when different cultures could come together and share what they had to offer one another, culminating in a feast consisting of corn and turkey that was made to honor that moment.

Sadly, the most recent depiction of this pivotal moment in our history has been turned into an American horror story. A story that depicts white Europeans who came to wipe out all the innocent natives by disease and war. The evil white man brought with them more evil white men who only wanted to destroy and kill, to take land that didn’t belong to them and annihilate anyone who wasn’t white. Because that’s all white people want.

Neither of these versions are remotely true.

The Pilgrims were not fleeing from persecution. Nor did they spread disease or kill an entire village of Native Americans. They simply came to a new world filled with the hope of freedom – freedom to live by the values and principles as defined by the word of God. They came to the new world to give their families that chance rather than being overtaken by a society they felt did not reflect those values. It was so important to them that they risked their lives and the lives of their children to make the voyage. A voyage that landed them far from where they were expecting.

After arriving to the new world it was clear that God had a plan. The circumstances which led up to the first thanksgiving – for both the Europeans and the Native American that helped them – could only be explained by divine providence.

Despite being told this is a time to apologize or to be shameful for our history as a nation, the truth is Thanksgiving should be the most important and revered time for all Americans. A time of remembrance of God’s grace and divine providence for a group of people that risked everything to honor Him, including a Native American by the name of Squanto.

The diversity of God’s grace is what we, Americans, should be celebrating. Not multiculturalism.

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

There are two prevailing opinions pertaining to the Florida election and subsequent recounts. Democrats generally feel like it’s good to “count every ballot” until they win, even if that means “finding” more ballots to add to their candidates’ tallies. Republicans have been fighting against the recounts despite that play coming across ingenuously to voters on both sides.

We should want every valid vote counted. The operative word there is “valid.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a Catholic, Tweeted a Bible verse that seemed apropos to the current debacle in Florida.

One might even say this draws in one of the favorite punching bags for Republicans, former presidential candidate “Crooked” Hillary Clinton. That wasn’t the intent, I’m sure, but it’s always fun to laugh at Hillary.

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

There are certain political moves that can be considered “no-brainers” for anyone in Washington DC. Offering persecuted Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi asylum is one of them.

The drawbacks of doing so are few but potent. It would enrage hardline Muslims in the United States who may go after Bibi and her family, but that’s a risk she’ll face anywhere she goes. It would put US citizens and military personnel at greater risk than they already are when traveling abroad, especially in Muslim majority nations like Pakistan. Lastly, it would spark negative press against the President who would ask whether or not he would do the same for a Muslim in a similar circumstance.

All of those negatives are mitigated by three important positives.

  1. It goes against the bigotry narrative. Don’t get me wrong. Mainstream media and leftists will still try to paint the act of offering asylum to a persecuted Pakistani family as racist because she’s Christian. Thankfully, most Americans are smart enough to see through that false narrative.
  2. Pakistan won’t mind. If anything, their preference would be for America, which is already evil in the eyes of most hardline Islamic Pakistanis, to accept a burden that will only perpetuate a narrative that already exists.
  3. It’s the right thing to do. Any time the President of the United States can do the right thing, he should. Lately, there just haven’t been many opportunities to do so.

Every day that passes brings Asia Bibi and her family closer to the dangers that are closing in on them in Pakistan. They need to be taken in as soon as possible. Italy, Germany, and even Canada have offered to step up. The United States needs to do the same.
