If You Refuse to Condemn Predators because of Politics, You’re Disgusting
National Review ^ | November 10, 2017 | by KATHERINE TIMPF

Posted on 11/10/2017 11:47:51 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

The allegations against Roy Moore are disgusting — and if you find yourself reluctant to say so because of your politics, then you’re pretty gross, too.

The Leigh Corfman story, reported by the Washington Post, is about so much more than just some older guy having a relationship with some younger girl. That, of course, would be bad enough — many girls haven’t even had their f***ing periods at age 14 — but this is also about a man who abuses his power to prey on the powerless. It’s about a respected district attorney finding a girl in a vulnerable position (waiting with her mother outside of a child-support hearing) and relishing in the opportunity to take advantage of it. It’s a sick story that is all too common, and one that will continue to be common if we refuse to speak out against it.

I believe that Roy Moore was a predator with a penchant for teenage girls. No, not because I’m some p***y-hat-wearing snowflake (as eloquent as that argument is) but because of logic. As my colleague David French notes, there are a lot of reasons to believe these allegations: There are multiple accusers. These women didn’t come to the press seeking attention, they simply answered the questions when the press came to them. They have witnesses corroborating their stories. Finally, the woman with the most serious allegations, Leigh Corfman, voted for Donald Trump in 2016 — making the political-hit-job storyline laughable at best.

If you think there’s no way you know anyone personally who has been through something like this; you’re wrong again, and it’s time for people on all political sides to recognize reality: These men are everywhere, so are their victims, and those victims aren’t talking points for your partisan-hack gotcha tweets. They’re people.

They expect us to read their Papal moralizing tripe droping the F-bomb and showing neglect? This is a joke, right?

NR is trash

I don’t know where you jackasses at NR live but I live in America where you’re innocent until proven guilty.

This communist style witch hunt is disgusting.

It’s obvious that the NR is also part of the Russian influence in US elections.

You mean you don’t understand the difference between an unconfirmed, politically volatile allegation and actual fact?

Katherine?

Attagirl, Katherine. Show us how enlightened and superior you are to men by cursing like a sailor.

“There are multiple accusers. “


i didn’t bother to read the trash but are there multiple “accusers” or are their multiple “victims”??

I read the crypt notes on Brietbart and it said one girl, who now works for the dims, alleged she was abused, told a friend then told her mother a decade later...

Roy Moore is the “ nevertrumper’s”surrogate for Donald Trump (even if Trump unwisely supported Strange!)l

That headline describes the entire Democrat Party (including its media shills) during the 1990s.

Impossible to take their ‘outrage’ seriously in 2017.

What’s disgusting is accepting allegations without evidence a few days before an election as if they were gospel.

If accusations are enough, then Bill Clinton to prison first.

These things make it look like a carefully planned smear job.

If there is one things we know about pedophiles is that they can’t stop. How come the last case of “pedophilia” charged against Judge Roy Moore is 38 years old?

Two Responses to this:

Duke Lacrosse

Rolling Stone UVA Allegations.

Both lies, both rush to judgment - and both were pretty contemporaneous, not 38 years ago.

Is that ACCUSED predators should be condemned, there Katherine, you hypocritical self-righteous Lying Leftist????

A person is INNOCENT until proven guilty you stupid woman.

But no, according to the Delusional Lying Leftists, if you’re on the Right and are accused and the Lying Leftist media tries and convicts you, then you’re guilty and should be condemned.Your day in court is unnecessary.
