Washington Post: Eight Women Accuse Charlie Rose of Having Sexually Harassed Them, With "Nudity," "Groping," and "Lewd Calls"



I can't read the story -- I don't pay for the Post and never will -- but the sub-hed says that "the incidents took place with employees, interns, and job applicants."

Employees, interns, and job applicants.

That's gonna be a problem. Especially the last two. Though if "employee" means works-directly-under-you, that's a big deal too.

If anyone has a cop of this story, please email it to me.

Here's some nuggets from Twitter:



Update: Here's the Hollywood Reporter's recap of what the Washington Post claims.

The ages of the women range from 21 to 37, with alleged incidents dating from 1990-2011... Due to his stature in the industry, five of the eight women that spoke to the Post did so on the condition of anonymity.

The allegations from the multiple women have a variety of similarities. Five separate accusers described incidents in which Rose put his hand on their upper thigh in order to get a reaction. Two women claimed Rose emerged from a shower and walked around naked in front of them. One claimed that Rose groped her bottom at a staff party....

One of the accusers who spoke to the Post on the record, Reah Bravo, was an intern and associate producer in 2007 for Rose’s PBS show, claimed Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward her while she was working for him at his private waterfront estate in Bellport, New York. She called Rose "a sexual predator" and also claimed he made advances on her while they were traveling together in cars, a private plane and in a hotel suite.

Another on-record accuser, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan who was one of Rose’s assistants in the mid-2000s, claimed that on over a dozen separate occasions Rose walked nude in front of her while she was working at one of his New York City homes. She was 21 years old at the time. She also claims that Rose called her multiple times, early in the morning or late at night, to describe fantasies of her swimming nude in his pool while he watched from his bedroom.

Ryan says she brought the calls up to Rose's longtime executive producer Yvette Vega, who she says responded, "That’s just Charlie being Charlie." Ryan claims she was fired by Rose shortly thereafter.

Again with the walking around naked.

Honestly, I had no idea this was such a thing.

I'd always heard that Charlie Rose was a lothario who got a lot of women. Maybe he did when he was younger, and maybe, as he aged, he was frustrated to find that the young flowers didn't turn to his sun and open their petals like they used to. Maybe he started getting more aggressive.

I don't know. I can't even read the story. I don't know if any of this is true. I'm just telling you what people in whom I have absolutely no trust are saying about someone else I have no trust in.

Once again, we see accused progressive men using similar language in their mea non culpas.

108 @29: "Something tells me that is more work than ace is willing to do to bother with reading their drivel."

Probably, but once you get used to it, the key combo sequences is pretty quick. In Mac Safari:

1. Click link // ignore them begging for money
2. command-L // access the address bar
3. command-A // select address
4. command-C // copy address
5. shift-command-N // open new window in private mode
6. command-V // paste address
7. return // read previously unreadable article

New window comes with insert cursor in the address bar.

Anyway, this takes me three seconds, and lets me read any WP or NYT article.

Yet, all that they had was locker room talk (inappropriate but just talk), and unsubstantiated allegations. Here we see more and more lefties accused of harassment.
So much for the War on Women!! Sure wish there was a real opposition party because this material is rich. If there was such a party, they could be scoring serious points and solidifying 2018 seats.

I have to say, that's a weird term, isn't it? Why add the "unwanted" part? I'm sure Charlie thought that all the chicks wanted him, no matter what they may have said - and the first sexual advance can't be known to be "unwanted", anyway.

So, the wanted sexual advances that old fogey Charlie made towards 18 year old interns was okay, I guess. They really let CHarlie off easy with this. All he has to say is what his friend kept telling him, "She wants you, Spaz!".

New York Times Suspends Glenn "Thumb Fedora" Thrush Over Sexual Misconduct Claims

Ladies, stay away from Fedora Tippers.

The New York Times said on Monday that it was suspending Glenn Thrush, one of its most prominent reporters, after he was accused of sexually inappropriate behavior.

...

"The behavior attributed to Glenn in this Vox story is very concerning and not in keeping with the standards and values of The New York Times," The Times said in a statement on Monday. "We intend to fully investigate and while we do, Glenn will be suspended."

The Times also said Mr. Thrush had said he planned to enter a substance abuse program and that the newspaper supported his decision.

The substance he's been abusing? The most addictive drug in the world -- mish.

Here's the Vox story accusing him of "luring" young female reporters into private tete-a-tetes and then turning the meeting in a sexual direction.

A friend of the woman confronted him in a text, demanding he never "lure" women into such a situation again.

Those texts are here.

Thrush was apologetic but defensive.

"I don't lure anybody ever," he wrote, according to screenshots provided by Padro Ocasio. "I got drunk because I got some shitty health news. And I am acutely aware of the hurdles that young women face in this business and have spent the better part of 20 years advocating for women journalists."

I love that their go-to defense is always "I tell other men not to do the things I do."

If Thrush is acutely aware of what young women face in the business of political journalism, he should also know it’s because he himself is one of the problems women face. Five years ago, when Thrush and I were colleagues at Politico, I was in the same bar as Padro Ocasio's friend -- perhaps the same booth -- when he caught me off guard, put his hand on my thigh, and suddenly started kissing me. Thrush says that he recalls the incident differently.

Three young women I interviewed, including the young woman who met Thrush in June, described to me a range of similar experiences, from unwanted groping and kissing to wet kisses out of nowhere to hazy sexual encounters that played out under the influence of alcohol. Each woman described feeling differently about these experiences: scared, violated, ashamed, weirded out. I was -- and am -- angry.

Details of their stories suggest a pattern. All of the women were in their 20s at the time. They were relatively early in their careers compared to Thrush, who was the kind of seasoned journalist who would be good to know. At an event with alcohol, he made advances. Afterward, they (as I did) thought it best to stay on good terms with Thrush, whatever their feelings.

"I apologize to any woman who felt uncomfortable in my presence, and for any situation where I behaved inappropriately. Any behavior that makes a woman feel disrespected or uncomfortable is unacceptable," Thrush said in a statement emailed to me on November 19.

This seems to be yet another I Admit Nothing But Apologize For Everything statement of the kind we're growing so familiar with, though at least he does suggest that maybe he behaved "inappropriately." But that's pretty vague, isn't it? By design, I'd imagine.

...

It wasn't that Thrush was offering young women a quid pro quo deal, such as sex in exchange for mentorship. Thrush, just by his stature, put women in a position of feeling they had to suck up and move on from an uncomfortable encounter.

On that night five years ago, I joined Thrush and a handful of other reporters for a few rounds at the Continental, a Politico hangout in Rosslyn, Virginia. At first, nothing seemed strange, until the crowd had dwindled down to Thrush, me, and one other female colleague.

Thrush tossed a $20 bill at her and told her to take a cab and leave us, "the grown-ups," alone. He slid into my side of the booth, blocking me in. I was wearing a skirt, and he put his hand on my thigh. He started kissing me. I pulled myself together and got out of there, shoving him on my way out.

In the morning, Thrush sent me an apologetic email. I didn't save it, but I recall it as similar to the one he would later send to Padro Ocasio's friend in June. He said he was sorry, but he didn't say for what, exactly.

Ah there you go: I Admit Nothing But Apologize for Everything.

She says Glenn Thrush began spreading the rumor that she had come on to him, and says she heard from other women that he pulled the same crap with them. (See article for that.)

The writer details a couple of other stories which are more ambiguous and scandalous than actionable or criminal. But together, taken as true, they present a guy with a problem, and his problem makes problems for women.

She mentions that some women spread rumors/warnings to never attend an event with Thrush where drinking was involved, and to ignore his private Direct Messages on Twitter. Coincidentally -- or not -- Thrush stopped tweeting on September 19th, exactly a month two months (for those who can count, a category that does not include myself) before the November 19th statement he made to this writer. One wonders if she had been using twitter as a means of asking questions before he shut it down.

Some of this is... I don't want to say defensible, but let me say this: Many people, when meeting and trying to make a good impression, have a self-interested reason for being friendly. They want to "network," they want to make a good impression on someone who can do them career favors. And sometimes they want to get laid.

I don't think it's fair that two people can have different motives for pretending to be interested in each other -- one for careerist reasons, the other for sexual reasons -- and say "Oh the latter self-interested reason is bad."

Someone using someone for one selfish reason (help me get ahead in my career) can't be that surprised that the person they're trying to use is also trying to use them (help me feel like I'm the sort of man women desire).

And without a direct chain-of-command type situation, where the women he's kissing up on are his actual underlings who he can promote or frustrate in their careers at his whim, I don't know if we can go around criminalizing men's advances to women. Even if those men are married, and even if they look like Glenn Thrush.

That said, some of this stuff, if true, does seem to cross the line. Alcohol, I guess, is being offered as an affirmative defense here, and yeah, people make bad decisions when drunk, and tend to miss subtle nonverbal hints like "This woman is totally turned off by me and almost cringes at my advance."

Still, after a couple of times of being told "You get out of control with women seeking career help," maybe pull a Franken and "reflect" with your family a bit?

And what the hell's with the "she came on to me" bullshit? Not a crime -- but it seems so pathetic as to verge on pathological.

If true, of course.

In any event, this is the sort of thing Glenn Thrush must be talking about when he claims he's "championing" women in the workplace.

By the Way: I tried to link this meme in the last post, but I glitched it. Here's hoping it works the second time.



PS, I wanted to mix in a non-sex-harassment post between the last one but everyone keeps talking about this Ovoid Thumb so I figured, let's get it out of the way.

You haven't been taking the required Sexual Harassment seminars yearly have you? While not CRIMINAL, it's sexual harassment to the HR people, even if they are coworkers with no supervisory role (as in reviews/promotion/timecard certification/etc. You are taught to look out for your coworkers to make sure that they aren't preyed upon by other coworkers.

I'm curious why you'd say "substance abuse" if you just meant "alcohol abuse."

Wouldn't you just say the latter, if it is the latter? Substance abuse leaves open a lot of possiblities which have social stigmas greater than alcoholism.

Innocent people are going to suffer because someone had or will have inaccurate *repressed memories* of some innocent behavior surface or some such other memory issues. And that may be the price society has to pay to ensure the abusers out there are called to account.

Not defending anyone in particular, but the human memory is strange and gets extremely unreliable as time goes by and accusations from years or decades ago simply can't be trusted without corroborating evidence which is typically not to be found.

not entirely. Some of this stuff involves apparently unconsented-to groping. You can say it's "differing memories" and all but if it's as this woman claims... well, it sounds over the line to me.

Some of it is of that ambiguous-area stuff, but...

Let me put it this way: The point of the "Base System" is that you're never, as a man, more than one step past where the girl feels comfortable at. You can try to touch the boob while you're making out; if she pushes your hand away, okay, called out at second, but at least you were just one step ahead of where she was comfortable.

Jumping into making out (which she says was uninvited) plus sexual touching is skipping bases. You can't guage if a chick is comfortable where you are when you skip bases.

Shitty health news is no excuse. There are plenty of people who've been told they have cancer, but they didn't run out and sexually harass someone.

87 Here are three reasons why Glenn Thrush's behavior with women advances the cause of feminism:

1. Glenn only came onto attractive female reporters in their 20s (we'll call them "babes"). Since he didn't hit on unattractive female reporters in their 20s, it shows that he respected them as equals in his noble profession. The babes had no shame about being attractive and flaunting it, so they're not true feminists anyhow.

2. Glenn didn't hit on any female reporters in their 30s, because he respected them for their career accomplishments in a competitive work environment. He saw them as his peers!

3. We're only hearing the hysterical shrieking from the babes Glenn didn't bang. Their inability to protect a source shows that they're unfit to be reporters. Feminism is not about advancing some chick in a career that she's not fit for just because she's a chick.

Posted by: Matt Yglesias, Voxplainer at November 20, 2017 04:27 PM (j+dfT)

88 And without a direct chain-of-command type situation, where the women he's kissing up on are his actual underlings who he can promote or frustrate in their careers at his whim, I don't know if we can go around criminalizing men's advances to women. Even if those men are married, and even if they look like Glenn Thrush.


Since I'm not going to read the Vox story, are these women with whom he worked or were these reporters at other places who were trying to network?

The first opens the NYT to liability. The second means he's a damn asshole who needed to be kneed in the crotch and, yes, have women call/email/text whatever each other that he's a loser who will try to paw at you if you go out for drinks on what should obviously be a networking interaction.

Look, if these weren't women with whom he was working, he's just an asshole. Now, he may be an asshole who keeps you from getting hired because you didn't let him paw you but, no matter how hard we try, we can't outlaw being an asshole.

That's a good way of thinking about it. And the hell of the thing is, if you're passive enough to wait for her to make the move or indicate what she wants next, she's likely not happy with that. She wants you to be the aggressor, to be in charge, to be so swept away with passion you try for more. Even if she doesn't really want it, she wants a guy who is in control at least sometimes. Unless she's a domme, then you get what you paid for.

But since men have historically been in the "power" position in the corporate world women aren't seen as the issue and their flirting and more is seen as ok. This current hysteria won't end until women start getting dragged into this morass as something other than always innocent victims.

212 Here's the thing in my eyes.

Weinstein didn't whack off in front of women because he "misread the signals"--or he has a wider variety of signals in his book.

If Thrush had a certain type of sexual morality, he should have taken stock of how attracted he was to the journo chick, looked at his wedding ring, and went home to his wife.

The lady I read didn't say that she had few clothes on after tussling with Thrush because he ripped them off, yet nonetheless she said she had few clothes on. So we don't know how many bases Thrush got before he was thrown out at "Aren't you married?"

I was listening to John Heffron on the way in to work, and he mentioned that he never patted himself on the back for a choice made after 1 am. And he's definitely never thanked himself for the choices made after 5 am.

Liquor is a lot the same way.

eh like I said there are often two people attempting a fake-friendly relationship each expecting a different end-game.

besides, women flirt for a lot of reasons, including assuaging their own insecurity. women want to be desired more than they actually desire.

also we have a weird culture now where flirtation is almost this default mode of communication. you see that on social media a lot. I think it's weird.

all i know is: never skip bases.

I read this old, old book that I found in my attic when I was a kid. It was like a sex guide for young adults or older teens. It was written in the 50s so it didn't talk about sex.

Anyway, it said something like (remember, this is the 50s): Girls found boys "handsy" not based on how quickly they moved through the bases but based on whether or not they tagged up on each base before moving to the next. Boys that skipped a base got labeled as either "handsy" or creepy. Boys that hit each base in the proper order wouldn't get so branded, even if they moved through the process quickly.

But for many women who have had bad experiences or heard about others' bad experiences, a one-on-one, outside of work meeting is going to make them feel uncomfortable regardless of what the man's intentions are. Pence isn't doing this so no one can "gotcha" him later. He's doing it because he thinks it's inappropriate for a married man to do this AND it's an uncomfortable business situation to put the woman in.

321 >>>Afterward, they (as I did) thought it best to stay on good terms with Thrush, whatever their feelings.

Ace mentions the boilerplate non-apology apology from the accused ("I don't remember anything, but I'm sorry for everything")...

...but this is now becoming boilerplate from the accusers: "I was made uncomfortable / sexually harassed / sexually assaulted / raped, but I decided not to say anything, because I wanted to advance my career in Hollywood / journalism / government / X workplace."

So we have accuser after accuser after accuser who admit to making the decision to choose the advancement of self over turning in a sexual predator.

And I wonder... how many of these females were told to shut up and 'play the game' by so-called women's rights supporters? Those who told women to look the other way about Bill Clinton, because he supported abortion? Ted Kennedy, because he supported abortion? Harvey Weinstein, because he supported abortion? Joe Biden, because he supported abortion?
And on and on and on.

What a sick culture the "women's rights" culture is that they value abortion over stopping sexual predators.

I think *that* is actually the biggest reveal of all of this: seeing all these so-called "women's movement" females admit that they chose protecting the sacrament of abortion over turning in sexual predators. Despicable.

It won't happen when there are parallel systems of punishment against men where Constitutional rights by and protections are taken away.
- Family Courts
- Duluth Model
- VAWA
- Titke IX courts on college campus
- false allegations go unpunished with women
- men cannot be sexually assaulted or raped by a woman
- #MeToo justice tried on social media years after the fact
- the norm of there is no reason to doubt the accuser
- women teachers getting away with banging their students. For every 1 caught 100 to 200 go unreported

Oh, I definitely would. But that's being smart. Being smart is also not walking down city allies, regardless of how permissible it is.

Of course, I'm married and don't work with my wife. So I wouldn't even do that. I generally do the Pence thing, and do not isolate myself with women who are not my wife.

That's also smart. Even though being alone with a woman is by any HR standard, permissible. The current suggestion is that you're some kind of maladjusted perv for even noticing that it's a female that you're alone with--because you're probably assuming her gender anyway.

However, co-workers hook-up, and its consensual--not anywhere I've worked, as far as I know. But it happens. Is it completely impermissible that somebody should date somebody they just happen to work with. I met my wife at a job, btw, and we dated while working there.

The best policy for an employer is like my cube-neighbor. His wife works at for the same company, but they cannot work in the same department. But the policy about how people have to transfer, makes it not a de facto violation of policy to start , but a necessity of continuing to transfer within a certain period.

People knew and careers where ruined if you spoke out.


Weinstein had a list of 100 people on his Hit List and had people employed solely to gather data on them. According to experts he is not the only one who does this. It is very, very difficult to go up against these guys and win.

If the police won't help, you can get buried in court case costs accusing these guys. It is unbelievably disgusting and soul-destroying. And it is not just sexual stuff. Lance Armstrong destroyed peoples' lives that told the truth on him. Think about how many were complicit in that?

That's why women are coming forward in groups. I've even see it in posts here. Well, it is just one person saying something, it's probably not true. Let me tell ya, for all the women who are coming forward, there are just as many not saying anything.

I think men and women working together so much presents a lot of temptations and opportunities that we didn't see 50 years ago.

In any X number of encounters with the opposite sex (or sex you're attracted to), you're going to have Y "clicks" or attractions. A certain fraction of those, Z, are going to be of the mutual type.

The greater the X the greater the number of Zs, where you both dig each other.

And resistance to temptation will only last so long.

not saying we have to go back to women being house-bound, but there are downsides to every major change in modes of living.

455 426 Are these elite marriages just business arrangements?

I think most of them are. Also a lot of "beardish" marriages for the terminally gay. I think publicists cook most of them up, esp. in the entertainment segment. And, you know what they say about politics? it's Hollywood for ugly people.

Check out Crazy Days and Nights. It's a gossip blog by someone in Hollywood who really does know his shit.

Did you know Don Henley raped a couple of underage girls back in 1980? That he fed them lots of drugs and one of them almost died from an overdose?

It's on his wikipedia as a minor charge of deliquency of a minor but apparently the situation was much, much worse. He took pictures of them too.

According to that site, Jerry Brown helped him cover up the worst parts of it. Also one of the girls later died of an overdose and the other girl swiped some of the polaroids at the scene and kept them. She's now the wife of a politician in California and she's going to expose the whole sordid ordeal.

Dunno about that last part, but the first part pretty much fits the situation. I mean, I believe it. We've seen and heard these stories many times.

You can find all sorts of sad facts about these broken people on that site. It's amazing how fucked up it all is.

If you asked some chick at work to go out with you, and she looks at you like you farted in her face, and she goes around telling everyone you creeped her out. That's her, not you.

If you shove your tongue down her throat and/or grope her, that's you, not her.

I don't know why people are getting this confused, but there. I hope that helps.

Angry Partisan Thumb: Bill Clinton's 1978 Rape of Juantia Broadderick Was "Empowered" by the Republicans' Defense of Clarence Thomas Thirteen Years Later in 1991

Okay, #FakeNews "Republican" (actually, he claims to be a "Proud Independent," which is also #FakeNews) and ABC Political "Analyst" Matthew Dowd doesn't talk about the Juanita Broadrick rape. But surely he knows that Clinton's abuse of women long predates the Clarence Thomas hearings...?

Apparently not. By his telling, Clinton was "empowered" to do things in the past by things that would only happen in the future.

According to Dowd, the only reason Justice Thomas was confirmed to sit on the court was that of tribal politics. "I think until we take off our jersey and say some things are not about our Jersey. Some things are not about the tribe that we're in," he pontificated. "We saw this in '91, then the Republicans gave up their values in order to get Justice Thomas on the court."

"They basically called Anita Hill a nut and a liar in order to get Justice Thomas on the court. They empowered Bill Clinton," he continued to proclaim, devoid of any facts or reason. "But in order to get those things, they decided the ends justify the means. They decided that a tainted person was better to get what they wanted."

Here are some people who cannot take their partisan shirts off and call out sexual assailants:



Notice they refuse to note that Leeann Tweeden also alleged that Franken committed the sexual battery of sticking his tongue into her mouth, not only unexpectedly but previously explicitly forbidden.

She said "NO" even to a fake stage kiss; he decided to force his tongue into her mouth anyway.

Here's another guy who can't take off his partisan shirt and call out his own tribe: Matthew J. Dowd himself, who, despite my badgering, continues insisting that Al Franken owned up to what he did:



No, he didn't. This is the standard liberal line, from Matthew Dowd to FoxNews "analyst" AB Stoddard: Al Franken admitted what he did.

No, he didn't. Tweeden had photographic proof he groped her; he "admitted" that, which could not be denied. There was a fucking picture of him caught red-handed, as it were.

He refuses to admit the even more egregious part of her allegation, that he forcibly tongue kissed her.

"He just put his hand on the back of my head and mashed his face against me," Tweeden said in a news conference Thursday. "It happened so fast. He mashed his lips against my face and stuck his tongue in my mouth so fast. All I can remember is that his lips were really wet and slimy."

Franken has not only not admitted that act but has said he has a different memory of the moment.

"I certainly don't remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann," Franken said in his first statement after the news broke.

Later, in a more extensive statement -- one in which he discussed the photo at length --- Franken said, "While I don't remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe women's experiences."

On Friday, Franken addressed the subject for a third time, in an email to Tweeden. He apologized for the photo, but said, again: "I remember that rehearsal differently."


Franken added, on the rehearsal incident, that "What's important is the impact on you and you felt violated by my actions. For that I apologize." The email was a classic I'm-sorry-if-you-were-offended apology that did not admit the behavior alleged.

In none of the statements did Franken say what his memory of the incident is.

He's calling her a liar. That's what you're saying when you say your "memory differs."

Because there's no proof on that one.

Just her claim.

Which counts as proof against Roy Moore, but not against Al Franken, for some reason I can't even guess at.

And I think the forcible tongue-kiss is the worst offense. I suspected women would say the same thing, so I put up a poll on Twitter:



691 votes, 91% saying the forcible tongue kiss is the more egregious violation, only 9% saying the groping was the worst one.

A friend relayed to me the input of his wife. She said the tongue-kiss was worse, "and it isn't even close."

I suspect that's because of the penetrative, wet, biological agent aspect of it.

I also suspected that because I tried imagining what I would think was worse, if a gay guy did the same to me. (I say "Gay guy" because an unwanted sexual battery from a woman, while unwanted and maybe even gross, wouldn't really be a huge deal either way. I'd just push her away and say "Stop.")

Some guy pulling a Terry Crews on my junk -- a brief squeeze -- versus a tongue-in-your-mouth forcible kiss? As my friend's wife said: Not even close.

Not happy about either, but the latter is definitely worse.

But the media -- Matthew Dowd, Dave Wiegel, Gloria Borger, that partisan robot Josh Marshall, FoxNews' AB Stoddard -- all insist on pretending the latter just wasn't alleged at all, so they can claim that Al Franken "manned up" and admitted his sins.

Even if you believed Anita Hill's stories --- which 85% of people who actually watched the hearings, including a majority of Dem watchers, did NOT --- all Thomas ever did was tell a few dirty jokes and ask her out.

A few years later and after a fullcourt press by the media, that stupid bitch is the second coming of Harriet Tubman and Thomas is a some kind of sex offender.

But the 'joke' boob grabbing was meant to humiliate her. And possibly even intimidate her. It was an aggressive act also.

Quite right! How dare we have observed that someone documentedly stalking Justice Thomas between jobs and in whom he showed no demonstrated interest might be a nut and a liar.

I suspect that was close to the truth. She did follow him from the DoE to the EEOC which implies there was some affinity there. The worst part is that he helped get her a job at DoE after she flamed at the law firm she went after her first year out of law school.

Just her claim.


And since her claim has support with both photographic proof and admission about a previous claim, she's got a lot of credibility. I believe her when she says it happened. Franken can't even come out and say "no, never happened" just "my memory is bad"

Teh_Donald had a clip this weekend of Chris Farley going on the House floor and pretending to be Newt, when Newt was speaker.

Ah, but we citizens are very aware of what that circus was about because we've been required to take sexual harassment awareness classes at work since then.

Here's what it should be: If any of these men or women are caught doing something we citizens have been told by HR is a no-no then they are sexual harassers.

Sorry, the new-ish rules apply to all AND they can't pretend they didn't know. No --- it's been a few decades, and they've been celebrating Anita Hill's bravery since then. You don't get to still claim ignorance, or comedy, or "I'm sorry if YOU were offended" blah blah blah!

Even if you believe everything she claims, and some of it might be true, it still never rose to the level of sexual harassment. There has to be a component of extortion for it to be sexual harassment, not merely unwelcome hitting upon. And nowhere in her testimony do I recall her stating that she
said that she wanted him to stop nor that any sort of penalty was implied or suggested by refusal.

Ahem . . . no . . .

The current Reign of terror exposing any and all sexual misogyny of the Dems, and Hollywood, etc. is the reductio ad absurdum of the Democrats ginned up "War on Women" thing that they, themselves, started by offering up a clearly mentally unstable, partisan, weirdly stalking, obviously made up, liar like Anita Hill to smear a man of integrity from the hearing rooms of the Senate. No one believed her, Matthew Dowd, because she was obviously lying.

I, for one, hope all the reign of terror against Dems continues until the idiot Dems run up the white flag and cry uncle. A win by Moore would go a LONG way to doing that. Has Allread turned over the forged yearbook yet?

Sure most of them had less credibility than Sam Giancana's lawyer, but they all said he did such terrible things as suggest they are fat and pat them on the rear end!!!!!1!1!!! And there was that girl who said Trump raped her when she was 13!!!!11!1!!!

Sure, almost all of them totally vanished after the election. Sure the girl has tried to sue Trump like 8 times and 8 times had judges throw her case out for utter lack of credibility or substance.

(Apparently there's something out there today about Glenn Thrush but I have been trying to work at work so I don't know) Because it seems like they all admit at least part of it. Okay, no, Weiner was "hacked". Okay apart from that. I might be misremembering but it seems like they all admit to something whereas Roy Moore and Trump both denied that they did anything at all. That's rather a major difference, isn't it?

Ya know, the same white women Democrats dismissed as ungrateful whores after they voted for Trump a few months ago/?

Whatever the intent/strategg was, it has failed miserably. Just today, Katie Pavlich's leftist co-panelists berated her when she mentioned Ted Kennedy "left a woman to drown." Actually, pursuant to Massachusetts statutes at the time, Kennedy murdered her, but the Party of Rape still can't own up to that one, apparently.

The Democrats and Left were so reliant on public trust of their propaganda organs that they can't recalibrate now that most people realize the media is a partisan farce. This is an epic fail but is just the start for them.

As an aside in the '80s if you wanted a surefire guarentee of a job in any company or if you wanted to work in any city state or federal job in the eighties just reinvent yourself as a black female with a law degree from Harvard or Yale. She must have skipped that class. And the sexual harassment, again if I recall correctly. Thomas stated that he " thought there was a pubic hair on his coke can. ' I shit you not. Congresspeople were fucking 17 year old pages that the parents sent to Washington, Ted Kennedy was making sweaty corpulent mansandwiches with Chris Dodd in restaurants and Thomas stops the world with a mention of a short and curly.

306 Quite a few years ago, maybe even a decade ago, I read a short story in a horror anthology about a world in which political correctness had gotten so out of control that it was legal to kill anyone who offended you for any reason. The protagonist lived in an apartment and spent all of his day in a silent apartment with no television or radio running and without shoes so as to not piss off the neighbors. He only went out at night because you had much less of a chance of running into someone who might take the slightest offense.

I don't remember how the story unfolded, but it sure seems we're heading in this direction. It's getting to the point where you could lose everything because someone misconstrued a conversation you had with them five years ago.

Now I know what we're seeing here goes far beyond this. Grabbing an ass or forcing a kiss is far more than a lame come on attempt, but does anyone think it won't go that far?

Posted by: Dack Thrombosis at November 20, 2017 04:06 PM (4ErVI)

307 Since unwanted kissing is now sexual assault, I suppose women will be held to the same standards as men in this area, yes?

Or will men get charged with assault/battery when they push the woman off of them and defend themselves from being sexually assaulted?

I believe we all know the answer to this, the latter. And it's playing right into the feminist agenda, like their agenda of it being a crime for straight men to not want to fuck trannies.

Absolutely. At root sexual harassment is actual harassment of a sexual nature. More than once. Multiple times.

To infer that the lowly janitor is not capable of sexual harassment is a dangerous opinion on your part. If some janitor was harassing my wife I'd be suing the pants off the corporation that allowed that.

Posted by: Ace Tractor Seat Supply at November 20, 2017 04:10 PM (ajiE5)

320 The way I understand it is:

Sexual harassment by law requires some level of intimidation or coercion, it is an attempt to force sexual action by threat or offer of reward. Sleep with me and I'll make sure you get that new job. Don't sleep with me and you'll be out on the street and I'll give you a bad name all over town.

If there is no element of coercion, its more like just plain harassment or assault. Its a different crime. Maybe I'm wrong, that's just always what I've heard and understand it to be, legally.

They can create problems out of thin air ... no doubt have done it many times before in helping the Clintons out of trouble. (I wonder why they really wanted to get Martha Stewart?)

Hillary was half right, that a challenge of the election (by Trump she thought) was a threat to our "democracy". It really is a threat with Hillary doing it, because she has her whole syndicate on the inside working to sabotage the will of the people. Border control is being stymied, leaks abound, top people won't act on Trump's (the people's) directives.

That would seem to include the efforts past and present of some old guard FBI types that have a hand in all the old subversive actions and subterfuge.

356 Since unwanted kissing is now sexual assault, I suppose women will be held to the same standards as men in this area, yes?

Or will men get charged with assault/battery when they push the woman off of them and defend themselves from being sexually assaulted?

I believe we all know the answer to this, the latter. And it's playing right into the feminist agenda, like their agenda of it being a crime for straight men to not want to fuck trannies.

357 Men, it's simple.

Do not put your hands on a woman who is not related to you, or whom you are dating. Do not shove your tongue in their mouths. Actually, do not put your tongue on her anywhere. Do not stick your nose in her hair. Do not slide your foot up her leg.

No touching. Pretend the nun or teacher is putting the ruler in between you and the other person so you don't touch. Even then, there are restrictions b/c of respect.

Do not grope or touch women in the workplace. Probably not men either, but we are talking women here..

It is simple. Even my kindergarten boyfriend knew this.

Don't touch.

The Science Is Settled: Scientists Discover "Wetlands" Are a Major Producer of a *Real* Greenhouse Gas, Methane; "Models" Have Failed to Account for Large Amounts of Methane Being Produced by Wetlands

In other words, a major real greenhouse gas, methane, has been undermodeled in these #FakeNews models, so that increases in temperature have been attributed to carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas so weak it's an open question if it should be classified as a greenhouse gas at all.

But you're a Science Denier for reading this actual science.

COLUMBUS, Ohio–A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive -- and, as a result, today's global climate models may be misjudging the amount of methane being released into the atmosphere.

In the journal Nature Communications, researchers at The Ohio State University and their colleagues describe the discovery of the first known methane-producing microbe that is active in an oxygen-rich environment.

Oxygen is supposed to be toxic to such microbes, called methanogens, but the newly named Candidatus Methanothrix paradoxum thrives in it.

In fact, 80 percent of the methane in the wetland under study came from oxygenated soils. The microbe's habitat extends from the deepest parts of a wetland, which are devoid of oxygen, all the way to surface soils.

I think that means the methane being produced by wetlands is 500% what it had been estimated as. They assumed it could only be produced in the 20% of wetland soil that was oxygen-poor, but it turns out it can be produced from oxygenated soils too (that is, all soil, not just the 20% they previously assumed).

"We've always assumed that oxygen was toxic to all methanogens," said Kelly Wrighton, project leader and professor of microbiology at Ohio State. "That assumption is so far entrenched in our thinking that global climate models simply don't allow for methane production in the presence of oxygen. Our work shows that this way of thinking is outdated, and we may be grossly under-accounting for methane in our existing climate models."

More work needs to be done before researchers can determine exactly how much more methane is out there, but the microbe's habitat appears to be global.

...

Researchers have long known that wetlands are Earth's largest natural source of methane. They've placed estimates on the amount of methane produced globally based on the notion that only the oxygen-free portion of any wetland could harbor methanogens.

In just the last decade, ocean researchers have seen evidence of methane being produced in oxygenated water, and dubbed the phenomenon the "methane paradox," but no microorganism has been found to be responsible.

...

When doctoral student Jordan Angle analyzed the samples, he found something strange: Soils that were rich in oxygen contained more methane than soils that lacked oxygen.

"I didn't believe it, and thought he'd gotten the samples mixed up," Wrighton said.

The new methane-generating microbe will be given the common name "Al Franken's Busyhands," because it smells like ass.

Methane is 0.00017% of our atmosphere. Draw your own conclusions.




Water .... on the other hand is MUCH better at being a greenhouse gas and the carrying capacity of the atmosphere for water is HUUUUUUUGE. Is so huge.... that when the carrying capacity is exceeded..... TRILLIONS of gallons of water falls from the sky and accumulate on the face of the earth in what normal thinking human beings call "rainfall".

But... not even scocialist envrio weenies are ready to call for the regulation of water on a planet that is covered miles deep in water over 70% of its surface.

I always like the story of an evolution debate in the late 1800's between a pastor and Thomas Huxley. Huxley was going on about how science had proven X and the pastor was replying that X wasn't scientifically possible. If you asked an evolutionist in the 80's which was right, they would have sided with the pastor.

115 All this is completley ludicrous. Because the system self-balances, as it has for over a billion years.

All the studies show massive "global greening" around the world, as the "greenhouse gases" in the atmosphere act as airborne fertilizer -- which is why they're called "greenhouse gases," duh.

All that "global greening" results in plants re-absorbing the carbon out of the atmosphere and putting back into the plant structures.

So in the end, the amount of carbon in the atmosphere goes back to normal.

This is and endless cycle that has been going on since life began.

If there is a lot of carbon in the atmosphere, then there is a lot of plant growth, and the crbon is used up.

If there is a deficiency of carbon in the atmosphere, then there is diminished plant growth, so the carbon is allowed to accumulate more.

Back and forth, in a contant cycle, since the dawn of time.

The entire brouhaha about "greenhouse gases" causing deleterious "global warming" is 100% science-free balderdash.

153 I think there are more fundamental problems.


Earth's atmosphere/troposphere is not a "greenhouse" - or it remains to be demonstrated that, with all the systems of systems taken into account, it *acts* as a greenhouse.


Given that, the concept of "forcing" caused by "greenhouse" gases remains entirely uproven, and quite dubious. If you don't have a complete understanding of how an entire system of systems acts, and comes to equilibrium, or changes it equilibrium, how do you draw conclusions about the relative contribution of different supposed factors?


Also - not trivial - there is no evidence that the earth's climate (itself an over-simplified concept) has indeed warmed since human measurement became possible, or that it was warmed more than was observed/documented (though not precisely measured) in earlier human times. Sorry - the data "adjustment" when corrected does not leave any clear picture.


And in a system of systems that is more than a billion years old, the proxy data absolutely does not point to the eye-blink of history for which there are any measurements being unusual - that is, not entirely "natural" and explicable without any human contributions.

Correct, the theory seems fundamentally sound involving greenhouse gasses, but the problem is the atmosphere is monstrously more complex, and has various forces in play on it that a lab study lacks such as solar influences, oceans, etc.

Basically what works in "science land" of your sterile lab where you strip out all outside influences doesn't necessarily in the real world.

is why they're called "greenhouse gases," duh." zombie

well ... the greening is indeed probably due at least partly to man's contributing CO2 to the atmosphere (beyond the normal swings) ... it's a good thing. (I don't know what methane does, or other carbon molecules) But there are other greenhouse gases much more abundant, like water vapor. The 400ppm CO2 has a greater effect as a "fertilizer" than it does as an insignificant greenhouse gas.

And the "greenhouse gas" name is because of the radiation effects of those gases "trapping the heat" (like in a greenhouse), not the airborne fertilizer benefits.

Its possible yeah. They never get it ALL out, because it becomes financially unfeasible, like gold mining. There's still gold in those mines quite a bit, but it would cost more to get the gold out than it would produce, with current methods. That's why you can go back to very old mines abandoned in the 19th century and get more today.

So it could be the remainder coming out of the nearby strata and filling the well slowly over time. Its very likely that is what is going on. Of course, some of it could be renewable petroleum being produced as well.

Not to mention that any measurement pre-digital is questionable whether they had accuracy to 0.1C. And before direct measurements of temperature models and surrogates like tree rings certainly can't produce a number to 0.1C, yet all of the climate charts show temperature variations through the years of 0.1C. Any scientist should look at the data and say "How are you getting these significant figures?" You can't produce data more accurate than the method used to measure it.

I laughed only b/c they lost their "luster" 3 years ago when Merkel said "multiculturalism does not work."

That was before the influx of millions of migrants. When she single-handedly open the floodgates to the EU...not just Germany. And then refused to reverse her decision.

So they have not "begun" to lose their luster. They have been failures for over 3 years. Totally rusted out with decay.

Not only that but that these deposits do bubble to the surface and into the atmosphere from time to time.

Many alarmists tout methane release as an extreme danger (re especially the cathrates at the bottoms of the oceans and the tundras.) And cows. Oh those stinky cows who 'release' a lot of it.

but, as I said, it doesn't last long in the atmosphere though a byproduct of methane chemical breakdown is, wait for it, CO2.

But the CO2 is ALREADY COUNTED as it spreads all around the planet. That's the important thing.

Another Woman Accuses Al Franken of Groping Her, When He Was a Sitting Senator in 2010

I'm sure he has a different recollection of the encounter, but also apologizes for... nothing.

Um, I said that as a joke, because that's been his previous Crisis Communications Firm scripted line. In fact, it's been several of these guys' line -- Ben Affleck claims he does not remember if he groped an actress, but either way, he's sorry. Kevin Spacey said he didn't remember molesting a then-16-year-old kid, but whichever way, he's sorry.

However, it turns out that's exactly what he did say in this incident as well -- I don't remember this happening, but I'm sorry. For... unspecified reasons.

The Crisis Communications Script seems to call for Apologies Without Admissions -- which makes them not apologies.


A woman says Sen. Al Franken inappropriately touched her in 2010, telling CNN that he grabbed her buttocks while taking a photo at the Minnesota State Fair.

..

Lindsay Menz, a 33-year-old woman who now lives in Frisco, Texas, reached out to CNN on Thursday hours after Tweeden made her story public. Menz said she wanted to share an "uncomfortable" interaction that left her feeling "gross."

According to Menz, she attended the Minnesota State Fair with her husband and father in the summer of 2010, almost two years after Franken was elected to the Senate. Her fathe''s small business was sponsoring a local radio booth, and she spent the day meeting various elected officials, political candidates and celebrities and taking photos with them as they stopped by the booth.


When Franken walked in, Menz and her husband, who also spoke with CNN, said they recognized him right away. Menz said she had a brief and cordial exchange with the senator.

Then, as her husband held up her phone and got ready to snap a photo of the two of them, Franken "pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear," Menz said. "It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek."

"It wasn't around my waist. It wasn't around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt," she said, recalling that the brazen act lasted three or four seconds. "I was like, oh my God, what's happening."

"He reached around her and kind of pulled her into him," said her husband Jeremy Menz, who didn't see what happened behind his wife. "He pulled her in and pushed his head against her head. It was over pretty quick."

Lindsay Menz told CNN that she walked away as soon as the photo was taken, without saying anything to the then-first term senator. When she reconnected with her husband moments later, she told him: "He totally grabbed my butt." Jeremy Menz described that conversation the same way to CNN.

In a statement to CNN Sunday, Franken said he did not remember taking the photo with Menz and that he felt "badly" that she felt disrespected.

The American Spectator reports that, when on tour in the 70s and 80s, Al Franken and Tom Davis used to do a "sketch" where they'd invite two pretty young girls to the stage and slow-dance with the, groping their buttocks the entire time, Because Funny, I guess?

They each stepped off the front of the stage and into the chairs and picked out two comely young college girls and brought them up to the stage. The lights dimmed. Soft, romantic music began to play. Franken and Davis wrapped their arms around their partners and pressed their bodies close. The girls complied.

They danced. They swayed...

His hands began fondling her ass.

Same with Davis.

Ha ha ha. There was laughter from the assembled voyeurs, excuse me, spectators.

The girls both reached behind and moved the roving hands up.

After which the hands slid back down to cop another slow, sensuous feel. Over and over and over.

...

I didn't laugh. I kept waiting for a punchline, as though the ass grab was a setup. But it wasn't a setup. Fondling the fanny was the whole point.


..

These two successful entertainers put two girls on stage, in front of maybe two hundred people, in roles of dancers, and began fondling them. Straight and simple as that. Maybe Franken and Davis whispered instructions into the girls' ears, I don't know.

In any event, the ass grabbing continued for the duration of the song.

Meanwhile, a couple hundred people watched. Or leered. Or laughed uncomfortably.


He seems to have a pattern.

Oh, and before this latest accuser, Franken said he wasn't resigning, but would just spend a day or two reflecting with his family or something before getting back to the job he was elected to do, which turns out to be groping.

32 Um, I said that as a joke, because that's been his previous Crisis Communications Firm scripted line. In fact, it's been several of these guys' line -- Ben Affleck claims he does not remember if he groped an actress, but either way, he's sorry. Kevin Spacey said he didn't remember molesting a then-16-year-old kid, but whichever way, he's sorry.

The difference between the Donks and the GOP could not be any clearer in the matter.

The Democrats are a legitimate political party working to enact an agenda, that is it, that is all that matters to Democrats.

They will lie, cheat, steal, compromise, deflect and defend any manner of transgressions to enact their program.

The GOP on the other hand is a useless pile of dog shit.

Alternately, it makes them admissions. Since you don't apologie for something you never did. "I'm sorry for that thing I didn't do but you said I did..."

No, you're not. You're admitting you did it, or there's nothing to apologize for

I laugh every time! and the best part is they can't see any way out, since it's their own people going after them. as the saying goes, PRICELESS!!!

some on the left are figuring out that this witch hunt thing is turning out to be a Real Bad Idea on their part, but what they're going to learn next is that the reason we try to not let witch hunts happen is because once you start one, it's almost impossible to turn if off; you just have to let it run its course and take out whoever it takes out, til people finally get sick of it and look for some other shiny new thing.

Brighton Hunt Saboteurs said they were there to make sure no illegal hunting took place and claim they are victims of an unprovoked attack.


Why do I mistrust the sincerity of a group that claims only to want to insure there were no illegalities when their name states that they are saboteurs?

Also, there are "asian men" hunting teenage girls in Rotherham and many other UK cities. Why can't these moral idiots do something more productive and sabotage their hunting instead? I have no respect for the left at all. There is nothing noble in their motivations whatsoever.

If you remember when the Lewinsky scandal first broke, many in the media--including George Stepontopofus--originally said that Clinton 'wouldn't last the week." Then they decided to just ride it out, reasoning that the longer he held on,the less likely it would be he would have to go.
That's what Roy Moore is doing too and it might work in his case. Pre-Trump, Moore would already have been disposed of.....

These things are very related. And serious.

The Saudi's are now publicly signalling that they have entered into an open military alliance with Israel. The first target of this alliance is going to be Hezbollah in Lebanon, which means a major middle east war between Israel and Lebanon is about to break out. I don't say with the Pali's because they can be crushed so easily that they're not even worth mentioning. The Egyptians are on board with the Saudis, as are the Jordanians, so no problem there.

The real fireworks will start when Iran, objecting to the loss of its proxy forces, begins launching missiles aimed at both Jerusalem and Riyadh.

"And then there's Peter Jennings who, we are told, more Americans get their news from than anyone else. And a man who freely admits that he cannot resist women. So, I'm thinking, 'There's Peter Jennings, sitting there each evening, elegant, erudite and refined, and I'm wondering, what's under his desk? I mean, besides an intern?'"

373 332 Wow - just saw on Breitbart that the Saudi Grand Mufti has proclaimed that it is now forbidden to kill Jews, while Prime Minister of Lebanon who recently resigned, Hariri, has announced that he did so because the Saudi's had uncovered an assassination plot against him orchestrated by Iran, acting through Hezbollah.

These things are very related. And serious.

The Saudi's are now publicly signalling that they have entered into an open military alliance with Israel. The first target of this alliance is going to be Hezbollah in Lebanon, which means a major middle east war between Israel and Lebanon is about to break out. I don't say with the Pali's because they can be crushed so easily that they're not even worth mentioning. The Egyptians are on board with the Saudis, as are the Jordanians, so no problem there.

The real fireworks will start when Iran, objecting to the loss of its proxy forces, begins launching missiles aimed at both Jerusalem and Riyadh.

It all could happen very, very soon. We're on a countdown to detonation; all the pieces are in place.

392 Tom Servo's got the got the line-up and dynamics right (Iran vs. Iz'rl and the Sunni Arab bigs of Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, with Tehran's proxy Hezbollah as the flashpoint). Not sure it will go splodey soon.


Recall Syria's regime is important to the world only as a proxy for Iran. Which was the reason it has been opposed by us, and Israel, and then the other Sunni Arab states. Right now it look as though that regime has weathered the storm.


If Damascus were about to fall (to any new alignment, doesn't matter, so long as the Iran tie were cut), THEN Tehran would have reason to push the panic button. Doesn't look like that now. And Russia would of course prefer its decades-long partners in Damascus to remain in power, but has little sway over Tehran when it comes to the biggest questions, like the big proxy war with Israel via Hezbollah. Moscow probably cannot veto any Tehran-based decision WRT to that big proxy war, even though they'd have no interest in seeing it happen.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

Wish I had one of those. It would make getting dinner a lot easier than finding a straight stick and coaxing termites out of their mound. Not to mention keeping that leopard who lives in the next tree from eating me! You people are stupid that way...you have better weapons than just flinging poo but you are too afraid of them because...um...hell, I'm just a chimp.

sears gun.jpg
[@Author1971]

We have become a nation obsessed with danger, and most of it is imagined. The media and the Left conspire to change the country's opinion of guns. When once they were a fixture in many homes, and simply a tool in many cases, now they are a totem to be feared. They are a potent signal of the rapidly expanding divide between the coastal elites and the rest of the country.

Gun violence seems to be independent of gun laws, yet the no-nothings who govern us are hell bent on restricting our rights even more. There are two bills before my state legislature that will make illegal mail-order sales of ammunition, and further restrictexpand the definition of "assault rifles" to make them ridiculous. And why? Because the Democrat legislature has a new, compliant governor. Say what you will about Christie, he didn't sign any gun control bills while in office.

FBI: US Homicide Rate at 51-Year Low
homicide_51yr.JPG

The US homicide rate in 2014, the most recent year available, was 4.5 per 100,000. The 2014 total follows a long downward trend and is the lowest homicide rate recorded since 1963 when the rate was 4.6 per 100,000. To find a lower homicide rate, we must travel back to 1957 when the total homicide rate hit 4.0 per 100,000.

Homicide rates were considerably higher in the United States during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, but over the past 25 years, have fallen nearly continuously:


Interesting that the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the subsequent destruction of our rights seems not to correlate with the desired changes in homicide rates. However, the Immigration Act of 1965 sure correlates with the wrong sort of change.. So a rational argument could be made that to have any substantive effect on gun violence we should close the borders and return to pre-1968 gun laws.

Works for me!

161 The saddest thing about Sears is that they had the opportunity to be what Walmart is in retailing, with their catalog business they had the early track to become what Amazon is, even with guns and sporting gear they could have become what Bass Pro is.


Walmart does what the other big boxes to- Strong-arm manufacturers into lowering prices which in turn forces them to lower the quality. Sears would not do that. What I can see is a board meeting in about 1999 where some young exec showed them Amazon.com and explained how Sears could do it bigger and better and was shut down by the stodgy old execs who proclaimed that people wanted the heft of their catalog in their hands or to see the merchandise on the shelves. Amazon will never work.

So behavior so infamous it would expose a federal employee to violent retribution does not include any prosecutable crimes. OK. Possibly, highly unlikely.

detectives to dig up dirt on the women, but Bill Clinton's attorneys
persuaded her to not interfere.'In
the past Hillary had a team of detectives that managed to silence a
number of women in Little Rock who had complaints about Bill's unwanted
sexual advances,' said the source,

THIS is why they need to get rid of the Clinton. Only a year ago they wanted this monstrous duo back in the WH, unleashing predator Bill on the ladies of DC once again from a very protected position.

Manson, though, was no devil but a human being, as his death makes clear. I don't say that to soften or absolve him. But I don't believe in demons; people are frightening enough. Indeed, to accept Manson as a person, to see him through the filter of his humanity, is to acknowledge what we resist: that he was perhaps not so utterly different from the rest of us.

For those who have faith in an afterlife, I suppose there's some solace in imagining he will get his karmic comeuppance. But it makes more sense to me to see him as an agent of the hells we create on Earth.

Manson was a killer, yes, and he was a psychopath, but he was never otherworldly. The violence and the hatred he embodied may be his most human attribute.

I DO suspect some of this newfound Leftist sympathy for Manson is because, believe it or not, he started espousing some kind of warped environmentalism while incarcerated. (look up ATWA--Air, Trees, Water, Animals)

When critics like a movie, you've been warned. It's like a woman having Gloria Allred as her lawyer.

303 Manson has been an avatar of mass murder/cult murder for as long as I've been alive.

It's good he's gone. They really should cremate the remains and dump them in the ocean or the toilet somewhere. Otherwise his grave site will become a shrine for the unwell and insane.

304 Are you saying I didn't need new muffler bearings?

Nope.

Just change the muffler belt.

305 "270 The majority of homicides in this country are committed by black men between the ages of 18-34.

If you remove the black murder rate, the US would have a murder rate lower than most European and Asian countries in a country with hundred of millions of firearms. "

I recall seeing a breakdown of violent crimes in Texas by race, can't remember who did it. Works because Texas has about as racially mixed a population as you have anywhere these days, especially in the larger cities.

Not surprisingly, White violent crime rate was about the same as you see in most European countries, and better than some; the Hispanic violent crime rate was a little bit better than what you find in most Latin American countries (but high), and black crime rates were - yeah, you guessed it. Just ask Zimbabwe.

you can take the boys out of the culture, but you can't take the culture out of the boys.

Indeed, to accept Manson as a person, to see him through the filter of his humanity, is to acknowledge what we resist: that he was perhaps not so utterly different from the rest of us.



Except for the swastika tattooed on the forehead.

307 So Clinton flew around on Ron Burkles jet, called "Air Fuck One", when he wasn't flying on Jeffrey Epsteins plane, "Lolita Air".

Clinton found a lot of billionaire pedos to fly with, it seems

310 Yeah,

On that LAT Manson take? How sick are these leftie libtards? What else is there to say about Manson except that he was pure evil, should have been executed and that everyone is glad (and we are all safer) now that he is gone. There are no "hip" "hot takes" on this.

Pointing out he was mortal? "ah - y
