Has Whoopi Goldberg weighed in? This sounds like a situation in which she would say it wasn’t “rape rape”.
“If Democrats Didn’t Have Double Standards They’d Have No Standards at All”
It’s difficult to have standards no matter how they are described when all their standards are lies.
Hey! I resemble that remark!
Heres a must see video, montage of Biden saying all women must be believed
Hat tip to Chris Plante for coining the phrase “If not for double standards, Democrats would have no standards at all.” It describes Democrats so well.
Thanks for the source. Always loved that quote. Will cite him next time.
If we leave out the rape and take Reade's initial reduced accusations from 2019 of being fired for refusing to be "eye candy" serving drinks for a Senator and then being retaliated against, how does that stack up against the Democrats disqualifying Mitt Romney for having "binders of women" in 2012, meaning background checks on qualified women to work in his administration?
Were the actions she DID recount really acceptable social norms in 1993, Bill Clinton's first year in office, or is it really changing the goalposts when the Democrats are on the receiving end of the scandal?
Was Romney having research on highly qualified women in 2012 WORSE than Biden wanting women staffers to be cocktail waitresses in 1993?
So everything Romney is irrelevant, stick to closer parallels like Brett Kavanaugh
The dems also tried to peddle the lie about Kavanaugh organizing a gang bang or rape of Christie Balsey Ford.
Since this is a thread about Democrat double-standards and we're in another Presidential election, rather than attack me, why don't you stick to the topic and answer my question of whether a 2012 accusation of having "binders of women" research documents is worse than a 1993 accusation of using your female staff as cocktail waitresses because they were pretty.
At no time, did I attack you.
It seems that this may come as a shock to you, but pointing out Romney’s flaws as well as the half hearted nature of the charges laid on Romney (because the purpose was never to damage Romney with that issue but to run out the clock) is not an attack on you.
If anything, it is an attack on Romney that points out that even in 2012 the globalists were propping him up.
I'll say this much about the Democrat establishment:
With Blasey-Ford, I think they were caught off-guard by what was essentially a "rogue" actor making an incredible accusation. That said, they quickly organized and weaponized her against Kavanaugh as a "hail Mary" attempt to keep SCOTUS from tilting conservatively.
With Biden, it might be a similar situation where they were caught off-guard by the seriousness of Reade's updated accusation, but they just as quickly organized AGAINST Reade to protect Biden.
So there is the double-standard based on who's ox is being gored.
Honestly, I think that if this came out after the DNC convention, they would have supported Reade and tossed Biden so they could replace him with a DNC leadership pick. Since it happened before the convention, they have to assume that Sanders has the most committed delegates and will make a stink of things at the convention, making it harder for the DNC establishment to overtly insert their choice. That's why they need Biden to limp his way to the convention, no matter what. They can always oust him over this later.
The problem is, repubs have to prove they’re innocent and dems’ victims have to prove the dem is guilty.
We’ve all seen Joe. I believe Reade but what I believe doesn’t matter.
I was reacting to "stick to closer parallels like Brett Kavanaugh." At first read, to me it came off as a bit abrupt and assertive, since you made no attempt to actually respond to what I wrote and, in fact, presumed to tell me what to do.
I, too, was sticking to the parallels, albeit different ones.
I believe Tara Reade as much as I believed Christine Blasey-Ford.
This is what Chris Plante, Mark Levin, and I have been saying for years.
I’m sure I got it from you guys. It’s a great quote.
