Leftist outrage is like a broke guy eating at an expensive restaurant. Decisions are based entirely on what it will cost them to take a given political position.
It’s put up or shut up time, leftists.
Was ‘Believe All Women’ a ride-or-die principle that should transcend politics and drive questions about human rights? Or was it little more than a one-and-done political poison pill devised to take down the man who opposed the ‘former Future President’ Hillary Rodham Clinton, much the same way the first Clinton team infamously took down ‘Bimbo Eruptions’?
It can’t be both.
There was a LOT of time, energy and political will thrown behind the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements. It claimed some very politically connected scalps — including Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein and even Ed Buck. Some journalists even reluctantly admitted that Bill Clinton’s accusers should have been believed.
That political energy was directed against Donald Trump and some of his allies. One of the more egregious examples was the shameless (and baseless!) defamation of Justice Kavanaugh by a woman who couldn’t even tell us what YEAR he supposedly committed his ‘crimes’.
The left’s silence was deafening, however, when accusations were directed at people still considered politically useful to the Democrat establishment. Bill Clinton was disposable. Joe Biden was not.
Very credible allegations against him by a former staffer who had contemporaneous complaints she could point to were dropped down the memory hole by the usual suspects in corporate newsrooms.
Israel is pointing out that same politically expedient moral bankruptcy when the moralizing globalist left ignores their own #MeToo #BelieveAllWomen principles when those principles are in conflict with the prevailing political narrative. This one being Palestine.
Both supposedly ‘grassroots’ protesters whipped up by the left in the streets of cities around the world AND the UN itself are happy to keep score with a long list of all the alleged ‘crimes’ committed by Israel against their neighbors in Gaza.
But when those same Gazans commit blatant war crimes against unsuspecting civilians, including women, children, and the elderly, the loudmouth moralists on the left (including the UN) suddenly lose their voices and are struck blind.

It’s exactly the kind of situational blindness that American journalists were struck with when Tara Reade raised her complaints against Joe Biden.
Oh, no. We’re not talking about THAT issue anymore. It didn’t help us against Trump. We’ve Moved On (*dot org* just like the political movement run by Clinton apologists who wanted to make Americans forget that women accused him of being a rapist).
Like Time Magazine says, we really needed to ‘fortify’ that election in Joe’s favor. Because our corporate overlords know better than the voting public what’s REALLY best for America.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
