Powerful men laid low by the hour: #MeToo remaking society literally overnight

Too often, movements of social protest force themselves on public consciousness, own the moment for a time, then fade from what used to be called the front page. Occupy. Idle No More. Even Black Lives Matter. But not #MeToo, which is transforming our society literally overnight.

The ranks of powerful men laid low by allegations of sexual misconduct are growing, not by the day, but by the hour. Between Wednesday morning and early Thursday morning, two conservative provincial leaders had their careers ended and their reputations destroyed.

Nova Scotia Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie's already-planned departure was transformed into his immediate resignation from the leadership and of his seat, after an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment resulted in demands from party officials that he step down.

And Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown resigned in the dead of night, Thursday, after CTV reported allegations by two women of sexual assault, which he denied. For a few hours, he fought to survive, but most of his senior staff resigned en masse, and the caucus made it clear he had to go, even though an election is slated for June 7. The seemingly doomed Liberals now have a chance to beat the odds yet again.

Mr. Brown's departure will reverberate beyond Canada's borders. A man who most likely would have been premier of Canada's largest province in a few months is disgraced and his party in disarray. What other Canadian politicians will read this news with quiet horror? What state governors? What powerful British mayors? Former Minnesota Senator Al Franken, a Democrat, has already fallen, and GOP candidate Roy Moore denied a Senate seat in Alabama, because of allegations of sexual misbehaviour.

Doubt it. Milo is a far better speaker and actually has a sense of humour, a self deprecating one at that. He’d never give anyone a red.

Bill Clinton Rape Survivor Juanita Broaddrick SPEAKS OUT!

[youtube]T5R0ll2Gvnc[/youtube]

Boy clinton really AVROED to the extreme on this one...

Bill Clinton’s Accusers Storm Al Franken’s Office Demanding His Resignation

Women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct stormed Senator Al Franken’s office on Wednesday demanding the lawmaker’s resignation. In a video shared on social media, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Leslie Millwee joined one of Franken’s six accusers, Melanie Morgan, for a theatrical demonstration against men who commit sexual assault.

I am here to demand Senator Franken resign,” Morgan told reporters inside the senator’s office. “Senator Franken, come out and talk to us. Don’t be a coward.”

Morgan described her encounter with Franken 17 years ago while filming an episode of Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect, alleging the senator harassed her by phone for several days thereafter. After two members from the senator’s communication team told Morgan that Franken was not available to speak, police arrived. The women dispersed shortly thereafter.

Earlier that day, Broaddrick, Willey, and Millwee held a press conference calling on Franken and Michigan Congressman John Conyers to resign from their positions.

“They are not sorry. Their apologies are weak. The only reason they apologized is because they were caught,” said Millwee, who also demanded that lawmakers stop funding covert settlements for sexual harassment. “I’m tired of paying Bill Clinton’s pension for what he did to me and all of these other women. I know there are many, many more like me.”

We have totally discarded the notions that used to prevail over our justice system of innocent until proven guilty or the right to face your accuser. Now you don't even get to know who your accuser is. Welcome to the new world.

Salivating at an anti-Clintons thread.

I've said it before, your a Trumptard Knob Gobbler, swallowing to much of Trump's seed. It's making you very salty.

At the rate you're going you'll be another Rod Stewart getting your stomach pumped.

BWT, under Clinton the economy grew.. for 8 years.

Those things still exist in the justice system. Those rules don’t apply to public opinion and never did.

What I see are a lot of politically motivated false alligations all timed around elections.The good news is that as these allegations are proven false in court the whole world will know that lefties will lie cheat and steal to force their dogma on the rest of us. The unfortunate part is that the next time a woman is raped no one will believe her. And that will be the fault of the people that claim to support women.

It just seems wrong that somebody can make unsubstantiated claims that destroy somebody's career, never reveal their identity, and never do anything more to prove those allegations. We have become puppets believing whatever the media put in front of us, us assuming they have some sort of journalistic standards or ethics.

Vote hungry LIE-berals are catering to the most emotionally disturbed and morally confused members of our society!!!!!!!!!! LIE-berals care nothing for logic or reason or the rule of law!!!!!!!!!!!! Two things only interest them: votes and gravy!!!!!!!!!!! LIE-berals are prepared to censor views that they disapprove of- for the simple reason that a view disturbs their quest for gravy!!!! We have already had a report from a law professor who tells us that the LIE-beral defined version of "fair use" of political comment being used by CBC to silence critics of LIE-beral policy is ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!! The MeToo brigade does not want any recognizable form of legal justice!!!!!!!!!! What they want is a court that can ERASE and rewind impulsive behaviour- AFTER THE FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The trial of three Toronto cops accused of raping a parking control officer clearly illustrates this warped thinking!!!!!!!! The parking oficer went out with the three cops and they all got drunk and she subsequently had sex with the men!!!!!!!!!!! And in the morning she regretted her actions and sought a legal remedy that does not exist!!!!!!!!! The courts DO NOT have the power to wind back the clock to!!!!!!!!! There is no video game style RESET button on real life- no matter how hard LIE-berals twist the truth!!!!!!!!!!!

One has only to look at the kerfuffle over that Quebec woman who was called a racist by Our idiot Boy Justin because she asked a quite legitimate question about financing for illegals!!!!!!!!! Both the Ontari-owe and Quebec govts have repeatedly asked the same question!!!!!!!!! Any LIE-beral whop thinks this question will fade and be forgotten is dreaming in technicolour!!!!!!!!!!!

It is a sign of LIE-beral desperation that they are so determined to censor all public views they deem hostile to them!!!!!!!!!! LIE-berals who think censorship by their media pals is the answer to winning elections are deluding themselves!!!!!!!!!! Even in Communist China where the State has the power to shut down the internet completely - the message STILL GETS OUT!!!!!!!!!! One has only to look at the massive protest some years back in Tianmen Square!!!!!!!!!! Huge numbers of Chinese got the word and showed up to object- this in spite of govt shutting down not just the internet but cutting off telephone service as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Communist censorship is so extreme that they even have the ability to restrict the sale of pencils and paper so opponents will have a harder time getting organized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is an article illustrating that NO mercy should be shown to anybody connected with Isis- meaning Our idiot Boy Justin ought to be pilloried for suggesting returning Isis fighters can be a strong voice in Canada! With some comments of my own in brackets): Ex-ISIS slave escapes Germany after confrontation with former captor

From Postmedia News. Published: August 16, 2018. Updated: August 16, 2018 1:24 PM EDT Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ News/ World A teenage Yazidi girl who was once an ISIS slave has moved to Iraq after having a confrontation with her former captor in Germany. According to Russian news outlet RT, Ashwaq Ta’lo had sought asylum in Stuggart, Germany where she had an unexpected encounter with Abu Human, a Syrian guard from ISIS who had enslaved her after purchasing her for $100. The alleged confrontation happened as she walked home one day in Stuttgart. In an interview with Kurdish news agency Bas News, Ta’lo said she froze dead in her tracks once she looked at his face. “It was Abu Humam, with the same scary beard and ugly face,” she told Bas News. Ashwaq a Yazidi girl, kidnapped by ISIS in 2014, she fled to Germany. And there she saw the ISIS man who bought her for 100$ walking free in Germany. He even confronted her After talking to German police, the officers told her that the man is an asylum seeker just like her. August 14, 2018 (The guy is accused as a monster and German cops can do nothing? Should we not ask if the guy MIGHT LOSE his status as asylum seeker if the accusation is true? Who would want a radical Isis Muslim and former owner of sex slaves as a citizen? Are Germans welcoming Muslims or surrendering to them?)

According to Ta’lo, her ex-captor said he remembered her time with him while in Mosul, Iraq. Ta’lo said Humam threatened her. “And I know where you live, with whom you live, and what you are doing,” she recalled him saying. The woman stated she told her brother about her ordeal with Humam. Her kin reported the ex-captor to German police, but Humam couldn’t be arrested because like Ta’lo he was also a registered refugee. (Registered refugee or not- the matter ought to be grounds for holding the guy till its cleared up- surely this accusation would affect his refugee status if proved?) “I will never go back,” the teen said of leaving Germany. Ta’lo thinks she’ll be safer living in Kurdistan. (Oh how handy- the poor girl has left Germany and LIE-berals there can now forget the matter since the awkward witness is GONE! Sweeping stuff under the rug is truly the LIE-beral way! After all- we are still waiting for the Swedish and German police reports regarding the accusations of multiple rapes and sex assaults at new years eve several years back! Frustrated women`s groups in both countries accused the govt of a cover up- to spare the sensibilities of Muslims apparently and the lack of report suggests the critics were right! In related news I do not understand why more Cdn women are not nervous about LIE-berals importing lots of Sharia Law loving Muslims into Canada- who will wipe out the civil rights of Cdn women if they do impose Sharia Law on us!)

Not the least surprised to see that you have no conception of the difference between ALLEGATIONS and proven fact, mf. What began as a movement to empower women has now turned into little more than witch hunt wherein anyone named and blamed is immediately deemed guilty without so much as a shred of proof. It will be very interesting to see the results of Weinstein's trial especially considering one of his main accusers has now had the tables turned on herself.
