Two kinds of truth: actual and political
By Patricia McCarthy - AMERICAN THINKER
"...there are two kinds of truth in this world. The truth that is the unalterable bedrock of one's life and mission. And the other, malleable truth of politicians, charlatans, corrupt lawyers, and their clients, bent and molded to serve whatever purpose was at hand." Michael Connelly, Two Kinds of Truth
There is a mass hysteria gripping the country at the moment. Some if it is probably part of a misguided plan to unseat Trump. The truly evil deeds of some are being conflated with far lesser crimes; but all forms of sexual predation are illicit and destructive. It was the New York Times's journalistic equivalent of a nuclear bomb that revealed what thousands of people had known for three decades: that Harvey Weinstein has been a sexually abusive monster. Everyone in the "business" knew it but kept quiet. His politics were "correct," so no one reported his many crimes against women. He was a huge donor to Democrats, especially to the Clintons. To be in bed with the Clintons is to be above the law and corrupt to the core. All of which means that, as night follows day, the Hollywood/Weinstein level of predation is probably rampant in Congress as well.
Some of the journalists who viciously demeaned Bill Clinton's victims in the 1990s are crawling all over themselves now, to say that they were wrong to defend him. They were young! They did not know any better." Or, as Kirsten Gillibrand commented, "Times have changed."
No, Senator, rape and any kind of sexual abuse was very wrong then and is still very wrong today. But those Clinton defenders never gave a thought to right and wrong. Just as university students today are taught that one must be a leftist or suffer well-deserved consequences, those "young" journalists never gave a thought to Bill Clinton's victims or what they may have suffered. Oh, no! They had to be destroyed.
