The United States Senator from Massachusetts, far left wing Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, is now jumping on the bandwagon and joining the growing chorus of women sharing their experiences about sexual harassment in the wake of allegations against the sick pervert, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The Massachusetts Democrat shared a story from when she was a “baby law professor” during a videotaped interview session with three other female senators that aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
Senator Warren says in the interview that a senior faculty member had asked her to stop by his office one day. When she did, he slammed the door and “lunged” at her. He then chased her around a desk, trying to get his hands on her. She claims she managed to avert the situation and conveniently only told her best friend about the incident. She later goes on to explain that speaking out is a way to show solidarity and say it isn’t the victim’s fault.
If this story is indeed true and not just a fabrication to get ahead in politics, like when she said she was a Native American in order to get a teaching job, then it’s awful that all these things are happening to these women, even a lying hack like Senator Warren.
I’m not going to say this is a lie, weirder things have happened, but, come on. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren claims the she was sexually harassed by a colleague when she was a law professor. In fact several democrats have come forward to claim victimhood at the hands of evil men. Democrats turned a blind eye to serial rapist Bill Clinton and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein for decades, but suddenly it’s trendy on the left to be outraged by something they have tolerated and encouraged for so long.
Meet the Press reached out to all 21 female Senators to get their stories about sexual harassment and only got 4 (all democrats), most of whom weren’t harassed at all. Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill told this story when she was seeking advice from a male state lawmaker about getting her bill passed:
“I cautiously approached the very powerful speaker of the Missouri House of Representatives. He looked at me and paused and he said, ‘Well, did you bring your kneepads?’ I do think he was joking, but it was shocking that he would make that joke to a colleague,” said McCaskill.
Okay, even McCaskill thinks that guy was joking so let’s call this first one BS; she wasn’t harassed.
Next, North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp talked about how a male law enforcement official said something to her after she made some sort of an effort to curb domestic violence:
“He put his finger in my face and he said, ‘Listen here, men will always beat their wives and you can’t stop ‘em,’” said Heitkamp.
That might be “mansplaining” but it’s not close at all to sexual harassment. So far these ladies are 0 for 2.
Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono had the least credible sexual harassment story by claiming men have asked her out on dates:
“I’ve been propositioned by teachers, by my colleagues, and you name it,” Hirono said.
0 for 3, which brings us to Elizabeth Warren who said a colleague once invited her to his office:
“He slammed the door and lunged for me. It was like a bad cartoon. He’s chasing me around the desk, trying to get his hands on me. After several rounds, I jumped for the door and got out and I went back to my office and just sat and shook and thought: ‘What have I done to bring this on?’” Warren said.
Warren also mentioned that she kept this attempted attack to herself, which adds zero credibility to her story.
Maybe this did happen, but Warren looks a sissy little boy, so I doubt it. Then again, some dudes have very weird fetishes. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say that Warren’s colleague was just trying to play “Cowboys and Indians” and she misinterpreted it. If it happened when she was a law professor, that’s back when she was pretending to be a Native American princess. It seems cultural appropriation really does have a price.
Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg says he knew all about Harvey Weinstein — and so did everyone else
We’ve heard a lot of people in recent days swear that they didn’t know Harvey Weinstein was a serial sexual harasser whose behavior, beyond boorish, was sometimes criminal. Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg, the Needham native whose first two movies, “Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead” and “Beautiful Girls,” Weinstein produced, is not one of those people.
In an epic Facebook post Monday to some of his followers, Rosenberg insisted everybody who came into contact with Harvey Weinstein knew — maybe not about the rapes alleged by some women — but certainly about a “pattern of overly-aggressive behavior that was rather dreadful. We knew about the man’s hunger; his fervor; his appetite. There was nothing secret about this voracious rapacity; like a gluttonous ogre out of the Brothers Grimm. All couched in vague promises of potential movie roles.”
Rosenberg describes Weinstein’s behavior as “reprehensible,” but he also has had it with what he calls the “current flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of [expletive] righteousness.”
Rosenberg claims many of the denials are coming from people who did, in fact, know.
“Because I was there. And I saw you. And I talked about it with you,” writes Rosenberg. “You, the big producers; you, the big directors; you, the big agents; you, the big financiers. And you, the big rival studio chiefs; you, the big actors; you, the big actresses; you, the big models. You, the big journalists; you, the big screenwriters; you, the big rock stars; you, the big restaurateurs; you, the big politicians. I saw you. All of you. God help me, I was there with you.”
So why didn’t he say something? Do something? The options were few, Rosenberg writes.
“What would you have had us do? Who were we to tell? The authorities? What authorities? The press? Harvey owned the press. The Internet? There was no Internet or reasonable facsimile thereof. Should we have called the police? And said what? Should we have reached out to some fantasy Attorney General Of Movieland? That didn’t exist,” he writes. “Not to mention, most of the victims chose not to speak out. Aside from sharing the grimy details with a close girlfriend or confidante. And if they discussed it with their representatives? Agents and managers, who themselves feared The Wrath Of The Big Man? The agents and managers would tell them to keep it to themselves. Because who knew the repercussions? That old saw ‘You’ll Never Work In This Town Again’ came crawling back to putrid life like a re-animated cadaver in a late-night zombie flick.”
Rosenberg acknowledges that being a friend of Weinstein’s had benefits — and they were substantial.
“Hell, Harvey once took me to St. Barth’s for Christmas. For 12 days! I was a broke-a** kid from Boston who had never even HEARD of St. Barth’s before he booked my travel. He once got me tickets to the seven hottest Broadway shows in one week. So I could take a new girlfriend on a dazzling tour of theater. He got me seats on the 40-yard-line to the Super Bowl, when the Patriots were playing the Packers in New Orleans. Even got me a hotel room, which was impossible to get that weekend,” Rosenberg writes. “He gave and gave and gave and gave. He had a monarch’s volcanic generosity when it came to those within his circle. And a Mafia don’s fervent need for abject loyalty from his capos and soldiers.”
But ignoring Weinstein’s misdeeds had serious consequences, Rosenberg writes.
“We were willing to overlook what the Golden Goose was up to, in the murky shadows behind the barn . . . And for that, I am eternally sorry. To all of the women that had to suffer this . . . I am eternally sorry . . . Their courage only hangs a lantern on my shame. And I am eternally sorry to all those who suffered in silence all this time. And have chosen to remain silent today.
“So, yeah, I am sorry. Sorry and ashamed,” he writes. “Because, in the end, I was complicit.
I didn’t say [expletive]. I didn’t do [expletive]. Harvey was nothing but wonderful to me. So I reaped the rewards and I kept my mouth shut. And for that, once again, I am sorry. But you should be sorry, too.”
What really irks me the most about this whole mess is how everyone knew Weinstein was a sick pervert and sexual predator but still were very ready and willing to his money. In fact, a spokeswoman for Elizabeth Warren put out a statement last week claiming that Warren will be donating the $5,000 in contributions she received from Weinstein for her 2012 senate campaign to charity.
Why are all these Democrats taking all this money from this sicko if everyone always knew what he was into? Then again, they all think of former President Bill Clinton as some kind of God!
Please share if you are sick of the double standards of the left….
