"Democrats have bollixed up every sexual harassment scandal I’ve covered."

"Joe Biden truncated the Hill-Thomas hearings in the name of comity. The Clintons had henchmen smear Lewinsky. Democrats vainly hammered Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh on sexual misconduct, hoping to stop judges they opposed on ideological grounds. Now, some Democrats are feeling regret over forcing out Al Franken, and for all those statements by prominent Democrats about how we must start with the presumption that women are telling the truth — an absurd standard.... 'Probably enough Democrats feel it no longer makes sense to hold your own side to serious ethical standards if Republicans won’t, so it’s possible to tough out things like this,' Ron Brownstein, a senior editor of The Atlantic, told me. 'I wouldn’t look at this as evidence that #MeToo is losing momentum; it’s more the sense that a red-blue cold war is gaining momentum. I think there’s less and less willingness to unilaterally punish your own side. Why take your own piece off the board if they won’t?'"

Writes Maureen Dowd in "Cuomo Discovers #MeToo Means #HimToo/Democrats agonize over the fate of a falling star" (NYT).

I kept the Brownstein quote in my excerpt not because I think he's sharp and getting it right. I kept it because it is such ripe bullshit, and I thought you might enjoy a laugh.  He wouldn’t look at this as evidence that #MeToo is losing momentum? Well, I sure as hell would.

It's like with blacks, where whites no longer care what blacks feel after a couple of decades of trying to help and getting slammed anyway.

Men no longer care how women say they feel. Suck it up, babe.

In other words, if Republicans won't cancel their people because of our false charges, why should we cancel our people because of accurate and substantiated claims? Standard Progressive logic. As the Blogfather says, "If it weren't for double standards, Progressives would have no standards at all."

Two things; 1) The Democrats only have "serious ethical standards" enough to break them whenever they see fit.

2) As long as Bill Clinton isn't "off the board" and the lie of Harvey Milk rules our lives, the Democrats are the party pretending to hold some moral high ground, after they started the nation's ethical decline - and (along with Milk helping to kidnap a child) don't forget Hillary's harassment of Bill's victims, that the Democrats tried to reward her with the WH for. She killed Kathleen Wiley's dog, for Christ's sake.

Where does it stop with these people?

"Why take your own piece off the board if they won’t?"

Because failure to do so demonstrates:
..the hypocrisy of your position; your primary concern is your own political power not ethical treatment of fellow human beings;
..you dishonor your target audience by assuming they are too dumb or too servile to be put off by your hypocrisy.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

Democrats do not agonize over Bill's sex with an intern in the 1990's, or Biden's crimes in Ukraine and China, or Tara Reid's very credible accusations, or Cuomo's heartless killing of the elderly and his sexual advances towards young women in his orbit. no no no.

Democrats are furious they got caught.

I did. But it's all about Trump now. Still. And I guess it's a little about Cuomo too. Apart from that "institutional memory" is a myth. The elites are as foolish and present-minded and easily manipulated as anyone else. Republicans who got forced out for sex scandals are forgotten. Democrats who got away with them are forgotten. The question -- still -- is how they are going to get Trump, and whether Cuomo is an acceptable sacrifice along the way.

Michael P said...

Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas.

It says an incredible amount about double standards and hypocrisy that the go-to sexual harassment claims about Republicans are 30 to 40 years old, and have always been extremely debatable in terms of what happened. How does that compare to what Democrats are credibly accused of doing in the last decade?

"Why take your own piece off the board if they won’t?"

In addition to the reasons cited above, Democrats assert themselves to be guardians for society's victim classes. In many situations, Democratic ideology requires a recognition that individuals go into a transaction with unequal levels of vulnerability, and that the individual of superior standing must act as a fiduciary for the historically victimized individual.

Leland said...

Let me know when Cuomo gets a Senate hearing investigation into supposedly sexually harassing a classmate at a private party when they were both in High School. I may pay attention when thousands of women march on the hearing and its ignored as a minor protest and not characterized as an armed insurrection to remove the Governor from power.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

Dowd: "Probably enough Democrats feel it no longer makes sense to hold your own side to serious ethical standards if Republicans won’t."

What crap.

Maureen Dowd is blinded by her adoration of team D.

The accusations against Kavanaugh were laughably flimsy. The high school account from a woman who lied about her fear of travel and other accountability issues, and a story without any corroboration at all. ... a supposed bed-bounce from high school.

v.

Very serious accusations of women from WHO WORKED WITH CUOMO who were treated to some serious unprofessional sexual advances. circa now - not high-school 1980's.

Maureen Down lost all credibility here. pathetic.

rcocean said...

Brownstein is a liar. But then he's a left-wing Democrat, so that goes with the territory. The Liberal/left MSM is now engaging in propaganda and gaslighting America on almost every subject. Part of that is accusing the republicans/Center-right of things THEY do. The Democrats never attack their own side. They always defended Clinton, Biden, Etc. Its the *Republicans* who threw Roy Moore and every other person CREDIBLY accused of sexual harassment.

Franken was tossed under the bus, because he was hampering the ability of the Democrats to attack the Republicans (especially Trump) on sexual harassment. And the Democrats were afraid he was going to lose reelection in 20202.

rcocean said...

Dowd never had any credibility to lose. She's an unfunny clown at this point. Just like Noonan is now an out-of-touch snob with nothing interesting to say.

Skeptical Voter said...

Bronwstein's comment was "ripe"? Well it was certainly fragrant--sort of like the smell that comes off a cattle feedlot. But then he was talking to MoDo who only hopes, fantasizes, dreams that Governor Fredo will see her one day and hit on her.

Cuomo may tough this one out--a few appearances on TV with tears in his eyes and claims that "I didn't mean to grab her by the XXXX". That may be enough to ride it on out.

Franken could have stayed and fought if he wanted. But he wimped out. It's pretty obvious that the other Senators weren't fond of "Joke Boy", and were embarrassed that this clown was a Senator. Of course, being D's they kept it somewhat hidden, unlike the R's who LOVE to sneer/jeer at their own side (cf: Cheney).

Minnesota has to be the dumbest state in the Union. Are they so bereft of intelligent people they had to import Al Franken from NYC to be their Senator? That's funnier than any joke Al Franken ever wrote.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

What made the entire Kavanaugh witch hunt fall apart were the over-the-top desperate accusations from slimy liars like Julie Swetnik. "I was raped by Kavanaugh at all the high school gang rape parties!" I only went back for more 10 times... or wait... let Julie change her story again ...
doesn't matter that Julie's story doesn't line up with her "sworn testimony" -
Oh look - Julie just changed her story again - live on NBC.

MadisonMan said...

Maybe I'm wrong, but #MeToo always struck me as a Left-Manufactured way of attacking Trump, one that backfired spectacularly as so many Friends of Democrats (or Democrats) have learned. Franken, Weinstein, Lauer, the list goes on.
Sexual Harrassment has absolutely no place in the workplace. But to expect sleazy politicians to act on it is expecting too much, especially given the toe-licking journalists who cover up their deeds. There are people of both sexes who use attraction to get what they want. That includes in the workplace. That won't change until Journalists and Politicians -- who do very much the same thing to get good assignments or press -- change their way.

The last paragraph in the piece by Dowd:
I covered his father, Mario, the three-time governor of New York who gnawed at the idea of a presidential run. And I can tell you that the closest he came to making a move in his office was reaching for a book by Teilhard de Chardin to give me. I still have it.

The big difference between Kavanaugh and Thos, on one hand, and Franken and all those Democrats, on the other, is that all those Dems actually committed these, shall we say, improprieties, whereas the accusations against Kavanaugh and Thomas were fabrications.

Drago said...

rcocean: "Just like Noonan is now an out-of-touch snob with nothing interesting to say."

Though she voted for Hillary in 2016 (to help "conserve conservatism" and "Reaganism"....(wink wink)), Noonan's last sentient and salient observation immediately after Trump won in 2016 was to note the collapse of our moronic and terrible "elites" and institutions and to accurately say we are being governed by our inferiors.....

....then she realized the NYC party invitations began drying up and she rapidly got back into the lefty rhetorical line.

Maureen Dowd had a few sparks of credibility over the decades. I'll give her that. She doesn't like the clintons and she once wrote about her pot-candy experience. I enjoyed her writing then.

The left are feeling really butt-hurt over Cuomo - because they give him an academy award for his acting skills.

The left's Potemkin President Biden showered Cuomo in praise - calling Cuomo "the gold standard" in governing.

The left placed all the golden eggs in the Cuomo basket. At one point - Cuomo was percolating as presidential material.

Now this?

Why can't the leftwing press circle the wagons effectively?
Or - How can the leftist press circle the wagons more effectively! Come on brave soldiers for the corrupt democrat party... pull it together.

Perhaps Hillary can dig up some trash on the young women who were sexually harassed by Cuomo.

BFTPFCP: "The left placed all the golden eggs in the Cuomo basket. At one point - Cuomo was percolating as presidential material.

Not to worry.

There is already an army of Blue-Anon Ingas running about claiming this is a republican set up and Trump actually ordered the COVID infected elderly into nursing homes and lied about it.

The only thing missing is claims hawaiian shirt wearing republican operatives were seen conversing with Cuomo's victims.

But the day is still young, so give the Inga-Blue Anons just a bit more time.....

tim in vermont said...

"Probably enough Democrats feel it no longer makes sense to hold your own side to serious ethical standards if Republicans won’t”

That’s how they justify every naked power move they make. First they whip up false charges against the Republicans, or disconstrue every word out of his mouth, then use the outrage they have whipped up to cover their own outrages.

Who cares about the thousands of grandmothers and grandfathers that Cuomo killed, that was in a good cause, to keep Trump from looking good.

Drago said...

"Why can't the leftwing press circle the wagons effectively?"

Oh contraire.

They are being quite effective...if the goal is well understood.

They are taking Cuomo out of 2024 contention to smooth the path for obama-controlled Harris. In fact, the obama minions which dominate the executive branch are sending a clear message to all democraticals and LLR-lefties (whom the left funds at The Bulwark, The Dispatch and The National anti-life Google/Facebook Review) that they can turn you into a hero or a zero overnight if you cross them.

Cuomo and his people wouldnt shut up about Cuomo being presidential material....and the obama people said enough is enough...and no democratical/LLR lap poodle is immune to the machinations dems use to take out opponents.

Yancey Ward said...

They aren't taking Cuomo off the board, though. He isn't resigning, isn't going to be forced to resign, and will probably win re-election.

Someone wrote a few days ago in these threads- it may be that Cuomo's allies are drumming up the Me-Too accusations as a way to deflect attention from the coverup of the nursing home deaths. The one notable thing about the nursing home story is that it is the WSJ that is carrying all the water right now- no other paper seems to be doing actual work on it themselves.

Yancey Ward said...

Watch what happens over the next half year- Cuomo does a big apology speech on the Me-Too scandal, publically gets some therapy, and then the media start in with the "Old news and Cuomo has apologized" in reply to every raised question about both scandals.

h at 10:48 gets it.

Also, Brownstein’s examples are of Democrats credibly accused and blatantly getting away with it versus #fakenews accusers groomed by Democrat Law Firms and shielded by dishonest press who relentlessly endlessly (it seems, during) repeat the accusations without evidence and once the actual “evidence” proves a dry hole they move on without apology, without explanation, with never a regret about the lies and dirt they amplify and spread far and deep. In fact the Party and its media amplifier simply keep calling the conservative people “rapists and abusers” as if they had prevailed in the hearings after all. Win-win!

Accusers of Democrats are not ever “believed” and supported by media like that. It doesn't happen. Franken was taken down by a Twitter mob only because he gave in and resigned. The Party would not have axed him. He was stupid.

Remember like 15-20 years ago when what Maureen Dowd wrote was a thing? I even remember an episode on The West Wing, where they had a Maureen Dowd character stand-in and all the little people were in a tizzy because one staffer was worried they made a mistake between Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. And then that that led to another junior staffer trying to repair things but humoursly somehow leaving her panties behind which for some reason had her name inscribed on them. Then at some point, people no longer cared what Maureen Dowd had to say... There was no reason given. And no words were said. But it is interesting to witness what goes on in the left's head.
