Nancy Pelosi unsurprisingly endorsed Joe Biden and was only too pleased to show her happiness. How quick the Democrats were to run with the “believe all women” argument during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. All of a sudden, due process matters. Believe all women? Only when it serves one’s political interests.
“Joe Biden is Joe Biden.” What else matters?
Babylon Bee decided to pre-empt Pelosi’s little presser by publishing the following parody.
Democratic presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden was cleared in federal court today of charges that some claimed were based upon credible allegations of sexual assault when the judge quickly realized that Joe Biden was not a Republican.
“Well, this looks pretty serious… let’s see who is on—wait a minute. He’s a Democrat! I can find no fault with him,” declared a fourth circuit federal judge hearing preliminary claims.
“It is well established in this court that Republicans are the ones who want to silence women and control their bodies. Haven’t you seen The Handmaid’s Tale?” the judge further added before banging down the gavel.”
“This is a victory for the judicial standard in our country of assuming the accused are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law,” stated Alyssa Milano. “We always need to maintain this standard of maintaining silence and withholding judgment on such cases when it is convenient and maintains our narratives.”
Yesterday, Alyssa Milano actually wrote a piece where she said that she supported Joe Biden despite believing in the allegations, mixed in with a dig at the white patriarchy. She wrote,
“It falls upon women to navigate within the system of men’s design to make pragmatic choices that we hope will lead us to a more equal future. I still support Joe Biden because I believe that’s the best choice for that future, and again it is not up to women to absolve perpetrators. How do progressive women choose between the pussy grabber in chief who has done so much damage to our country and a man who has allegations made against him?…
…The allegations against Joe Biden concern me, deeply. He’s a man I know, respect, and admire, and who I can’t picture doing any of the things of which he’s accused. But I’ve thought that before, and been wrong. And sexual assault is always wrong.”
So much for the #METOO movement she led. How happy she was to sit with a face of thunder during the Kavanaugh hearings. Then again hypocrisy and Hollywood go hand in hand.
Who could forget when Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star was vandalized and then removed?
“The resolution on which the West Hollywood City Council voted urged the removal of Mr. Trump’s star “due to his disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country.”
Yet the response of Hollywood to now convicted rapist Bill Cosby was,
“In response, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce released a statement politely asking fans not to deface anyone’s stars, no matter how many rapes they may be accused of: “When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways. ”
Except if they are Republicans.
