Cosby’s sentencing and the “metoo” movement

Cosby’s sentencing and the “metoo” movement

As much as it pains me because I basically learned how to speak English in the 80’s by watching the Cosby show, I do believe he is guilty.
But, I also feel that all the women who accused played a part in becoming a victim.
They were not forced to go to his room or house, they were not forced to take the pills, their actions up to that point were voluntary in the hopes of advancing a career through a powerful celebrity.
It didn’t go well after that point and they were vulnerable to a predator.
I’m pretty sure that just as many escaped the same fate simply by being smart enough to refuse to go to his house, or refuse to take the drugs, or because they believed in themselves enough to have the courage to achieve their goals without sleeping around.
Obviously, the accusers bad choices don’t diminish his guilt, but they should be talked about because not mentioning it removes all responsibility from women who make bad choices.
What Cosby did is sadly common place in Hollywood, it has been since its existence, we all know it.
For some odd reason, the last couple of years the left has decided to sacrifice some of their own to create the “metoo” movement, well…maybe not so odd reason.
This movement has become a powerful tool for the left and it wouldn’t have any credibility if they had not created some sacrificial lambs!
In reading an article about Cosby’s trial earlier today, the last paragraph got my attention:
“This case sets the tone for the rest of the Me Too movement, which means more victims will feel more comfortable coming forward, despite the years that have passed since the alleged sexual assault,” says Los Angeles civil attorney Angela Reddock-Wright, an expert on the Me Too movement and on sexual harassment cases.
Where are the other celebrities accused of sexual assault? Eighty three celebrities were “exposed” last year, not much on their whereabouts these days.
Is Harvey Weinstein answering to formal charges? How about Kevin Spacey? Russel Simmons, Matt Lauer, George Takei, Oliver Stone …  nothing.
Chances are none of the men mentioned above will ever face formal charges, they just needed to be exposed as part of creating a movement.  And at least one had to be the sacrificial lamb that would make it legit, Cosby.
Some of you at this point are thinking of some politicians who also have been given a pass, but the “metoo” movement wasn’t created after a politcian was ousted, they’ve used Hollywood, and that’s why Cosby’s sentencing is so important.
Anyone who thinks the leftist elite cares about what happened to the victims is failing to notice how 83 accused men have not been mentioned at all once the “metoo” movement was established.
No, I don’t feel bad for Cosby. He got what he deserved.
I do feel bad for the gullible women supporting a movement that was never created to protect them, but was created to execute Alinsky’s rule for radicals number 13:
“Pick a target, freeze it,  personalize it, polarize it”
Accusing someone of sexual assault does exactly that! And it works because it touches the emotional side of every human being.
While I’m happy justice seemed to have been served, was it served for the right reasons?
America’s Stockholm Syndrome

America’s Stockholm Syndrome

There is a silence in the air as we all go about our lives in the morning of 9/11.

We are reflective, we mourn the ones we’ve lost, we ponder on how our perception of the world changed in one day, and we share our stories of what we were doing that tragic morning.

Regardless if you believe that 9/11/2001 was an act of terrorism with or without all the theories regarding our own government involvement, it was still a massacre planned and executed by a radical mentality that seeks submission from those who do not think as they do.

One would think that after 2001 American Citizens would be even more alert to the possibility of developing radicalism among the followers of Islam, but we’ve seen quite the opposite take place.

One would also think, that those who believe that our government either aided or covered up important information, would be less supportive of the swamp creatures who did it.

How did we go from complete shock in the morning of 9/11/2001 to defending the assailants 11 years later when Benghazi took the lives of an Ambassador and another three brave US Citizens?

I remember watching the news during the Benghazi attack and having no doubt that we were witnessing a well-planned and very intentional attack on US citizens on the 11th anniversary of the largest terrorist attack this Nation has ever experienced. Yet, many were perfectly ok with the clearly false narrative that the attack was spontaneous and the result of outrage from a YouTube video.

Americans have gone out of their way to show they are not bigots!

Since 9/11/2001 we have …

Tripled the amount of refugees from Islamic countries into the Country, had another 8 terrorist attacks in US soil (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/01/america-since-911-terrorist-attacks-linked-to-the-war-on-terror) Lost the first Ambassador in 3 decades due to terrorism.  We’ve allowed the government to infringe on our 4th Amendment rights by establishing the Patriot Act, which has done nothing to prevent the 8 attacks on US soil since implemented.  We’ve allowed the government to create and give too much power to the TSA, which again, has not arrested even one terrorist since its creation but makes our lives hell at airports.

Government officials clearly lying about Benghazi were given a pass, radical Islamic groups have been ignored.  Recently, a judge even dismissed all charges against islamists who killed a child in a ritual and enslaved 11 others … no protests about those injustices, but plenty of protests to keep late-term abortion rights.

All sense of reason and logic have been completely rejected.

Stockholm syndrome maybe?

Stockholm syndrome, psychological response wherein a captive begins to identify closely with his or her captors, as well as with their agenda and demands.

But you would say… Americans are not captive? I wouldn’t be so sure about that.

Under the definition of Stockholm syndrome, Encyclopedia Britannica delivers the following:

“Psychologists who have studied the syndrome believe that the bond is initially created when a captor threatens a captive’s life, deliberates, and then chooses not to kill the captive. The captive’s relief at the removal of the death threat is transposed into feelings of gratitude toward the captor for giving him or her life. As the Stockholm bank robbery incident proves, it takes only a few days for this bond to cement, proving that, early on, the victim’s desire to survive trumps the urge to hate the person who created the situation.

The survival instinct is at the heart of the Stockholm syndrome. Victims live in enforced dependence and interpret rare or small acts of kindness in the midst of horrible conditions as good treatment. They often become hypervigilant to the needs and demands of their captors, making psychological links between the captors’ happiness and their own. Indeed, the syndrome is marked not only by a positive bond between captive and captor but also by a negative attitude on behalf of the captive toward authorities who threaten the captor-captive relationship. The negative attitude is especially powerful when the hostage is of no use to the captors except as leverage against a third party, as has often been the case with political hostages.”

Please read the text above as many times as necessary until you understand the connection to the dysfunctional relationship Americans have developed with its politicians.

How else can you explain not the mere acceptance but border line adulation half of the population exhibits towards a culture that is diametrically opposed to ours?

In 2015 and NY city judge was sworn in using the Quran instead of the Constitution, not one cared that her loyalty was to sharia and not the highest law of the country, and that the two literally do not go along.

Today, we have 50 out of almost 100 Muslims who made it through the primaries, running for office in the upcoming elections.  That’s a very odd acceptance of a culture who tried to kill you 17 years ago.

And who are seen as the bad guys? The ones pointing this insanity out like Benghazi survivor Kris Paronto, or former Muslim and anti sharia activist Anni Aynaz Cyrus.

No, we should not be judgmental, and no we should not generalize an entire group of people, balance and reason is important, both lacking these days though.

In the effort to not generalize Americans are over compensating and giving up their culture in the process.  We might end up with mayors like Sadiq Khan from London all over America in the next 2 election cycles because half the population suffers from Stockholm syndrome and the other half won’t even bother to get out and vote.

I know this is a very daring thought, but you can both accept other cultures and preserve yours!

When we say Never Forget, mean it!

Jihad could never win a real hand to hand battle inside the US, but they are winning a very patient and controlled battle by changing the political landscape one city at the time while monopolizing on the very convenient guilt half the nation seems to feel towards their captors.

09/11/2001 – 09/11/2012

Fight for them, fight for their memory, fight for our Constitution, fight for our children.

NEVER FORGET and DON’T LET IT BE FORGOTTEN
