Posted on 05/19/2020 11:35:01 AM PDT by Enlightened1
Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault, and conservatives are having a field day, exultant that theyve caught feminists in a new hypocrisy trap. A woman, with no corroboration beyond contemporaneous accounts, charges a powerful man with a decades-old crime? Hmm, doesnt that sound mighty close to Christine Blasey Fords complaint against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? Yet this time, many liberals whove championed the #MeToo movement seem skeptical?
Tim Graham, executive editor of NewsBusters: Where is the #MeToo movement on this story? What happened to their rigid Believe All Women boilerplate?
Fox News host Tucker Carlson: the infuriating, the sickening hypocrisy of the media and the professional feminist movement. Believe All Women! No they dont.
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway: Three magic words, Believe All Women. I didnt hear an asterisk; I didnt see a footnote, Believe All Women so long as they are attacking somebody aligned with President Trump, Believe All Women so long as they are have a college degree or better or are are for abortion in the ninth month.
In fact, Believe All Women does have an asterisk: *Its never been feminist boilerplate. What we are witnessing is another instance of the right decrying what it imagines the American womens movement to be.
Spend some mind-numbing hours tracking the origins of Believe All Women on social media sites and news databases as I did and youll discover how language, like a virus, can mutate overnight. All of a sudden, yesterdays quotes suffer the insertion of some foreign DNA that makes them easy to weaponize. In this case, that foreign intrusion is a word: all.

It is now a "Right Wing Trap" to get the Democrats.
“Alinsky, you magnificent bastard, we read your book!”
“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
It’s a tarp!
“We have always been at war with Eastasia”
Uhm, wut? Wow, we right wingers are even more talented than I had imagined. We bamboozled dumb feminists to come up with a lame trope to tarnish Justice Kavanagh only for the long-game of having it backfire on them. We are GOOD!
The NET EFFECT of ‘believing all women’, even without evidence, is that men will effectively be EXCLUDED from public office and other high-profile positions - including private jobs.
That’s half of the reason that I fully DEFEND Biden on Left-Wing forums (the other half is that Biden is a bit few cards short of half a deck).
A difference without a distinction. And it’s still a petard of their own making that they’ve hoisted themselves upon...
Of course, it was a trap of their own making. The “right wing”, being typically courteous, made a point of reminding back during Kavanaugh that the phrase would come back to bite them, hard. But the left figured they would just blame the right for any of their own failings, as is their custom.
“Believe all women” only applies when Republicans are being accused.
LOL! Yeah, a trap Democrats set for themselves.
Our engine has fallen off and the wing is on fire but heck, what do I know? I’m only a woman.
This writer is an idiot. There is nothing factual similar to Blassey Ford. Ford had zero, zero people supporting her, she had zero statements or claims at the time of the claimed event and in fact had her “witnesses” deny her claim. On the other hand Tara has a report, several people who vividly remember her discussing the event at the time, and even has a tape of her mom calling in to a radio host asking about the event at the time, although not naming Biden. Democrats have zero ethics, zero character and will lie, spin and basically do anything to further their political agenda. This is why I seriously believe that we will be unable to live side by side with these corrupt, power hungry, American-hating people in the future.
I could feel my IQ dropping as I read this feminist’s screed.
*hohoho* *gasp* *wheeze*
