Donna Brazile, former DNC chairwoman, tweeted out on Sunday, October 8th, that “the Weinstein Company has taken the lead against sexual harassment and assault.” This tweet came as a result of the Weinstein Company firing their namesake executive after it’s been revealed that he has a history of sexual predation.
Now, why exactly is she being mocked here? Because there’s no way that the Weinstein Company was oblivious to Harvey’s sexual predatory behavior and actions FOR 30 YEARS! The company was founded in 2005, but people within Harvey’s circle in the company must’ve known about him doing these things for a lot longer than 12 years. The only reason Harvey was fired is because he got caught.
Many Twitter users bashed the ignorant comment, with some saying: “The Weinstein Co. has been in cover-up mode for YEARS. The only reason they fired him (which means nothing) is because he got caught.” As well as: “If getting caught with your pants down is ‘taking the lead against sexual harassment,’ you’re on the wrong end of the donkey.” And my personal favorite: “’The Germans have taken the lead against Jew-hatred’ – You (Brazile), in 1945”
The point they’re all trying to make is that the Weinstein Company hasn’t taken the lead on anything. They were fine with his behavior for as long as he didn’t get caught. Now, he got caught, so the Company chose to save themselves and fire him, all the while earning the praise and respect of clearly ignorant people on social media.
Like that last tweet said, it’s basically the equivalent of praising Nazi Germany after WWII for no longer being a nation that will actively pursue the execution Jews. The Nazis were defeated, that’s why they stopped. Harvey got caught, that’s why he got fired.
For as long as this dirty old man managed to not make his sexual exploitations known to the public, the Weinstein Company had no problems with him. Like I informed you earlier, the Company has been around for 12 years now. If they had any sort of problem with his behavior, we would’ve known about this WHEN BUSH WAS PRESIDENT!
According to The Daily Caller, “Twitter mocked Brazile for her tweet, arguing that it’s unlikely the Weinstein Company was oblivious about the many accusations before the New York Times report. She finally deleted her tweet on Monday morning after being relentlessly ridiculed.”
While I love to see that common sense ruled over ignorance on Twitter, I have to ask this question: why even write that tweet in the first place?
Leftists tend to want to be on people’s good side, so it simply makes sense to be against Harvey on this issue (even if they don’t flat out tear into him). Her focus wasn’t on Harvey, but sexual predation as a whole. She wanted people to know that she was against sexual predation… or so it appears at the surface.
We all know that Leftists, particularly former DNC chairpersons, don’t tweet or say things without a deeper purpose: to get donations. She may have thought that the Weinstein Company was a donor to the Democrat Party, and, to an extent, it was. But only for as long as Harvey was in it. HE was the major donor to the Democrat Party in his company. HE is the one who was admired by Hollywood and Leftists everywhere (except the women he assaulted), because HE was the one who was the big-time donor of his company.
Now that HE’s the one in trouble and HE’s gone from the company he co-founded, there’s no advantage to being on the Weinstein Company’s good side. In fact, it’s a TERRIBLE idea to be on their good side. Because being on their good side means being on Harvey’s BAD side. If they condemn his actions, they’ll be turning away an important donor to their Party. And with the state the Democrats currently are in, they don’t want to turn away any sort of money.
Not that raising money will win them elections. If anything, I think people are less likely to vote Democrat now than they were in the 2016 Election, but money is still very much important. And if they hope to fight against the Trump agenda, they’ll need plenty of it, so turning away a major donor such as Harvey just to praise his company is not a good idea for them.
I believe that is also the reason she deleted her tweet in the first place. While I would love to believe it was because of the constant ridicule she gets (which she will receive no matter what she says), I think this is more than simply ego or hurt feelings. This is most likely about the potential money the Democrat Party could continue to receive from Harvey.
I’ve said in the past that the Left doesn’t care about women if a liberal man wants to do stuff to them. I’ve also said that the reason is because, if that liberal man is useful to the Party, they are okay with him being a rapist. In this case, Harvey’s use was largely monetary. Of course, he also makes sure to use social media to show that he’s a solid Leftist, but the Democrat Party likes him because he’s a donor too.
To the Democrats, if you’re either donating to them or are a strong part of the communist agenda, you are free to be as vile and repulsive a human being as you want, provided that you don’t get caught (or even after you get caught, really). Harvey managed to do that for THIRTY YEARS. For that long, this despicable human being was revered by Leftists, knowing just what kind of disgusting excuse for a man he was, and it was fine. It was fine because he is one of them. Even now, they refuse to strongly go after him because of the potential money he could donate if they kept their mouths shut.
In the same way he paid off women to not say anything about the things he did to them, he’s also paying off the Democrats to not say anything by the way of potential donations. The Democrat Party is the living embodiment of the phrase “for the right price”. They are the living embodiment of greed.
Beyond even that, they are the embodiment of SIN.
“The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
