Sexual harassment charges against Democratic lawmakers are threatening to drown out the party’s message on tax reform at a crucial juncture in the year-end fight over President Trump’s prized legislation.
Democrats had hoped to use this week to drive opposition to the GOP’s tax-code overhaul, which they say showers benefits on corporations and the wealthy at the expense of the middle class. But the message has been muddied by the lingering storm over the harassment charges swirling around Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), once seen as a 2020 presidential contender, and Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), the longest-serving current member of the House.
The saga has become a “big distraction,” in the words of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who spent much of last week’s holiday recess negotiating for a quick resolution with Conyers and other top Democrats — including Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.
On a related note, Pelosi’s brother was a rapist.
Anyhoo, the point of this article isn’t purely to shine a light on the Dems being the real soldiers in the war on women. There’s plenty of Republicans that are no doubt pigs as well, albeit more discreet pigs. But ladies, be very wary of Liberal, “feminist” men. For most the pro-women, aggressively feminist stance is nothing more than an act to get you interested because they don’t believe they’re deserving of your interest in the first place. Insecurity coupled with desire makes men do very bad things, and not the fun kind of very bad things.
But the big picture here is the self-esteem crisis in this country. Look at the imbeciles and pigs that we have elected as our rulers. And make no mistake, they do not govern us. They rule us. We allow these rapists, predators, liars and imbeciles to rule us. And then we go and defend their behavior because they’re on “our team”. We deserve better. We should demand better.
