I just love days like today when the Left gives me all the ammo that I could possibly want to utterly and completely humiliate and destroy them with everything that I have. Such an opportunity was given to me when, following the Reade accusations that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her (with her being the eighth woman to come forward to accuse Biden of sexual assault/harassment), the Left switched from their “believe all women” platform to “believe the women who accuse conservatives” platform pretty darn obviously.
And nowhere has this switch been more obvious than in a recent New York Times op-ed written by feminist Susan Faludi, who writes: “’Believe All Women’ Is a Right-Wing Trap.”
Yes, apparently, we all were just hallucinating the idea that the Left insisted we should believe each and every woman that would come forward with “her truth” with regards to sexual assault. Apparently, it was just conservatives using that phrase just to attack Joe Biden and whatever other Leftist who got caught in this same sort of trap that the Left tried to set on right-wingers like Kavanaugh and Trump.
Apparently, the actual phrase is “believe women”, which is somehow different from “believe all women”. Apparently, the phrase “believe women” is supposed to mean that we take sexual assault claims seriously without throwing away due process and without “reflexively doubting them”, as Jill Filipovic tweeted upon reading the article.
It’s worth mentioning the load of crap that this whole thing is.
Filipovic, in her tweet, claims that “feminists never said ‘believe all women’ – the right inserted the ‘all’. Feminists said ‘believe women’: that is, start with the assumption that women are telling the truth instead of reflexively doubting them.”
Again, that’s a load of crap, not to mention a hilarious attempt at gaslighting. LITERALLY ALL FEMINISTS, WHEN THE METOO MOVEMENT BECAME A THING, STARTED SAYING “BELIEVE ALL WOMEN.” Filipovic either doesn’t remember (how convenient) or is straight-up lying and gaslighting, which is the most likely possibility simply because of the fact that the accusation is being thrown at the Democrats’ last hope of beating Trump in November: Creepy Joe Biden.
Let me share with you just a few examples of the many, MANY times feminists and Leftists in general have used the phrase “believe all women.”
Let’s begin with a tweet from The View on December 8th, 2017:
“’Rapes and sexual harassment are the least-reported crimes in our country because women are afraid they will not be believed and that they will be shamed – and we need to change that!’ Sunny on why she believes it’s essential to believe all women coming forward with allegations.”
From Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) on September 26th, 2018, with regards to the Kavanaugh accusations: “We stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, & Julie Swetnik. #BelieveAllWomen.”
That one in particular is hilarious to me because not only does she use the hashtag that the gaslighting leftists insisted feminists never used, but she is also adding Julie Swetnik, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of being at ten parties where she herself had been “raped”, though she never accused Kavanaugh of doing the “raping”. The reason I find it hilarious is because listening to her story for five minutes is all it takes to recognize how utterly bogus and ridiculous it is, not to mention fairly irrelevant, since she never accused Kavanaugh of partaking in the acts she claims happened in such parties.
But regardless of that tangential point, we can clearly see that she is earnestly using the full phrase and unless she’s secretly a right-wing operative or something like that, I guess that’s a case of a LEFTIST, FEMINIST USING THE PHRASE THAT FILIPOVIC INSISTED THEY DIDN’T USE.
From NPR: “’Believe all women’ has been the rallying cry of the #MeToo movement – a mantra embraced by some but dismissed by others as naïve. The tension over the credibility of women is nothing new, especially in rape investigations.”
And here’s an image from one of the protests regarding the Kavanaugh hearings:
All it takes to classify a woman as a “survivor” is simply her telling her story, and Tara Reade has told her story extensively to a number of news outlets. All of a sudden, however, we are not to believe ALL “survivors” and women.
From the University of Oregon’s Organization Against Sexual Assault: “We must educate young boys on the meaning of consent and instill the value of women’s safety in them from a young age. #BelieveAllWomen #consent #MeToo.”
From a Democrat candidate for the North Carolina Senate: “After taking cyberstalking plea deal, WNC’s Rep. Henson to resign. #AboutTime #BelieveAllWomen #endofcorruption #DrainTheSwamp.”
From a mental health counselor who could probably use one himself: “This a**hole assumes the allegations of rape and sexual assault against Trump are fake, but I would bet good money he believes Juanita Broaddrick. #BelieveAllWomen.” (Worth mentioning that, upon finding this tweet, I found a reply that read: "That hashtag is a winner. Thank you. I wish other men believed." which cracked me up when I saw it because this woman wrote it at the time the original tweet was made and she 100% meant what she said).
Time after time, ever since the phrase was brought up, it has been used by the Left sincerely to attack any political opponents they can use the tactic of accusations against. Whenever a woman came forward with a story of sexual assault, we were to believe she was telling the truth and disparage the man that she was accusing, without hearing his side of the story and without granting presumption of innocence.
But now that Joe Biden has been accused for THE EIGHT TIME of some sort of sexual misconduct, even though there is AMPLE evidence of such things from just the pictures I shared in the very FIRST article I wrote discussing the Reade allegations, the response from the Left has been nothing short of a betrayal of the standards they had been trying to set for the last couple of years.
When it’s one of THEIR OWN who is being credibly accused of sexual assault, they either bury the story (like they had been trying to do with the SEVEN other women who came forward to accuse him) or they attack and disparage the accuser, accusing her of lying for Trump’s political benefit or simply being an affront to “progress”.
And the most hilarious part of all of it is that the argument they are trying to use, that the phrase should be “believe women”, not “believe all women”, doesn’t work because both signify the same thing.
There is no significant difference between “believe women” and “believe all women.” The “all” is IMPLIED in the former! Tara Reade is still a woman. The phrase they apparently believe should be used is “believe women” WHICH STILL APPLIES TO HER!
These idiots can’t even gaslight us right! They are arguing for a distinction without a difference! Even if they were right about feminists never having used the latter term, which is 100% wrong, as I just demonstrated, their argument STILL wouldn’t suffice to discredit Reade. She is still a woman and they are still insisting that women be believed.
And the argument that we don’t “reflexively doubt” the woman making the allegations is still ridiculous because NO ONE reflexively doubts women making allegations. What we do is not rob the person being accused of their presumption of innocence while still taking the woman’s allegations with the seriousness it deserves, if it deserves it at all. Accusations like the one from Blasey Ford or any of the other Kavanaugh accusers barely deserved any seriousness because of the fact that NONE of them brought forth any evidence of such misconduct from Kavanaugh.
Ford accused him DECADES after the incident happened. And unlike Reade, who waited almost as long to come forward with her story, Ford never told anyone about what supposedly happened when it supposedly happened. Reade told her mother, brother and those close to her soon after she was allegedly assaulted by Biden. CNN tried to delete a video of a phone call Reade’s mother made to Larry King’s show to talk about it, showing that Reade indeed told her mother around the time that the incident occurred.
Ford came forward with her accusation only when Kavanaugh was about to be the newest Supreme Court Justice and she never told anyone about what happened until the time she made the accusation. And the witnesses she brought forth either did not corroborate her story or outright REFUTED her story.
And keep in mind, Ford was THE MOST CREDIBLE out of all of Kavanaugh’s accusers. Each of the accusers that came forth after Ford were less and less credible, up to Swetnik, who sounded like a loon because she repeatedly attended parties held by the same people she accused of raping girls in those parties.
We didn’t not believe Ford because we “reflexively” doubt women coming forward with sexual assault allegations. We didn’t believe Ford because HER STORY WAS FULL OF HOLES, SHE KEPT CHANGING IT, SHE NEVER TOLD ANYONE BEFORE COMING FORWARD, SHE HAD NO CORROBORATING WITNESSES AND WAS VISIBLY TRAINED BY ALYSSA MILANO ON HOW TO ACT LIKE AN INNOCENT GIRL IN FRONT OF A JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, HALF OF WHOM WERE DEMOCRATS WITH AN AGENDA LIKE SHE WAS.
And that last part was the most important one, because it’s easily provable. A video from September of last year showed Blasey Ford’s attorney “telling attendees at a feminist conference that her client’s testimony against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a politically motivated move to protect Roe v. Wade,” according to Newsweek. So it is painfully obvious that the ONLY reason Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault wasn’t because he did it but because he posed a threat to their paganistic and satanic desire to KILL THEIR OWN CHILDREN SHOULD THEY PLEASE.
Meanwhile, Reade has far more going for her story being true than Ford ever did and Reade is, herself, a Democrat who in all likelihood hates Trump’s guts, so she has far less of a reason to come forward with accusations because of politics.
In all of this, keep in mind the one and ONLY reason the Left is saying the things they are saying: the target of these accusations is Joe Biden. If Tara Reade had accused Trump of sexual assault, even if she didn’t bring with her any sort of evidence or witnesses, she would be celebrated and treated like a QUEEN, much like Ford was. But because she is accusing Joe Biden, the rules of engagement have to be changed.
All of a sudden, the phrase the Left adopted when attacking political opponents, “believe all women” became so problematic that some of their members believed they should gaslight everyone and claim no feminist ever actually used it, when they very clearly did.
All of a sudden, that phrase is a “right-wing trap”, not because the Left has never used it but because it can be used against them by the Right.
So, they ignore the standards they set for other people as soon as they are used against them. Not the first time it’s happened; won’t be the last. But it is always glorious to see karma biting them in the rear and people trying to get them to operate under the rules THEY set.
