#MeToo...A Misguided Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio
While some will not like what I am about to say others surely will...but say it I must and let the consequences fall where they may.
So let's start by asking what exactly is a victim? As per the Merriam-Webster dictionary a victim is one that is “injured, destroyed, or sacrificed under any of various conditions” or “one that is subjected to oppression, hardship, or mistreatment.” And a survivor is one who “continues to function or prosper” despite having been a victim. But when one considers themselves a victim of unproven and made up allegations, I believe, one is neither a victim nor a survivor, but is a liar for one cannot be a victim of something that never happened.
And what is a liar but an individual who makes “untrue statements with intent to deceive” or one who takes actions in order “to create a false or misleading impression”...all of which Dr. Christine Blasey Ford willingly did when she accused now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her back in their high school days.
Also, remember that if Dr. Ford truly wanted her accusation to remain anonymous as she, the media, and her Senate protectors all claim, she would not have sent the now infamous letter to her congresswoman or to the newspapers...at least not without including definitive proof that the sexual assault by a then teenage Brett Kavanaugh actually took place. Dr. Ford took the risk of her allegation being proven false, which thankfully it was, for the learned doctor forgot that allegations are but words without substance and that truth in the end will usually prevail.
And in Dr. Ford's wanting to hide behind anonymity means she either wanted to take the cowards way out...as in someone unwilling to stand by their accusation hoping that said accusation itself would do the intended damage...or she was using the calling card of someone with both a plan and an agenda in mind. And personally I believe that in Dr. Ford's case it was a combination of the two, and I wouldn't doubt if Dr. Ford leaked the letter herself to set in motion her cleverly orchestrated plan of revenge that she felt was languishing way too long on Sen. Dianne Feinstein's desk.
Simply, Christine Blasey Ford lied about now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh trying to rape her 36 long years ago...after all no one could corroborate her story not even those she claimed were in the house when the assault supposedly occurred or those she claimed she told her story to. And contrary to what some think the only thing this woman is a victim of is getting caught in her own lies now coupled with the fact that she has allowed herself to be used by her fellow Democrats as the “face” of those who lie...but who demand you believe their lie... about sexual assaults that never happened.
In fact, what Christine Blasey Ford and her lie about Brett Kavanaugh did was make a mockery of those women who are true victims of rape or of sexual assault. And by the way, teenage boys trying to “cop a feel” in an effort to get to “first” or “second base” is not sexual assault nor is it rape...bad behavior perhaps but really just teenage boys being teenage boys...most especially when no intercourse or rape took place.
And I know from which I speak for this happened to me... with no rape or intercourse taking place (nor did it in Dr. Ford's case)...no lasting mental harm was done to me... and the incident became as it should be...just one small memory from my early teenage years of a teenage boy being a teenage boy and nothing more. And unlike Dr. Ford, I remember the details...the who, what, where, why, when, and how...but it affected my life in no way at all which means no #MeToo movement for me. Am I stronger than most women...perhaps...but I knew even back then as much as I know now the difference between a boy “copping a feel” and something so much more serious...something called rape.
And really, many of the women now claiming that they were sexually assaulted or raped so many years ago were actually willing participants who probably had the reputation for being “loose” or being “fast” back in their high school days...girls who went to parties and who drank as much as the boys with “copping a feel” or worse being inevitable when one puts oneself in such a precarious position. But now they figure why not add their name to a movement doing, I believe, more harm than good, even though they're doing it just for their 15 minutes of fame or possibly for some sort of misguided and twisted revenge against the boy who dumped them after "copping their feel” and maybe even more.
Now fast forward those very high school girls by a decade or two as they became “party girls” and bar hoppers in their twenties and thirties...young women whose actions and consequences only mattered to them when it became something they could use to their advantage or maybe they see it as a way to do self-penance of sorts for past actions taken now regretted.
Serious actions do have serious consequences after all, as does making what one knows at the time is a bad decision. But only bringing something forth years or decades after said self-perceived wrong occurred, is a wrong that is best kept to oneself for if something was grievous enough to cause mental anguish and harm in the immediate hours and days after said incident occurred, it was serious enough to have been told to someone or reported to the police in a timely matter.
And with thousands of women now identifying themselves as victims of rape, sexual assault, and the newest faux-pas known as workplace sexual harassment...a man dare not say a woman looks nice or her dress is pretty while at work...yet few of the woman joining the movement have had the courage to disclose the details or the name of the person responsible for doing them harm...just more accusations with no proof whatsoever to back-up their jumping on the #MeToo bandwagon.
And the nonsense now being spewed by Democrat politicians who are clamoring for votes and by so-called feminists who use in-your-face screaming as their method de-jour for shaming and trying to silence any and everyone who disagrees with their nonsense that any woman claiming to be a survivor must be believed...as in proof be damned...goes against one of our county's most basic of legal principals...innocent until proven guilty. And without the presumption of innocence our beloved America is truly in trouble.
And to the true victims of rape and sexual assault who do not file a report with the police in a timely manner, and to those women who waited years or even decades to come forward...you must shoulder some of the blame as well. Obviously you are not to blame for being a victim of rape, but you are guilty of willingly allowing your fear via your silence to enable your rapist or assaulter to possibly assault or rape again.
Silence is not always golden especially in true cases of rape or sexual assault.
And yet within the fabric of American society their are those who work hard to promote gender equality between the two...yes the two...sexes...most especially in the workplace. But know we cannot ever allow ones gender to be the sole factor in deciding who is guilty and who is not guilty of the crimes that are rape and sexual assault. And those men being accused of such must be deemed innocent until legally proven guilty for the right to “due process” must be protected at all costs. And not to do so will surely hurt collective womanhood in the long run for “justice must never be served through unjust means”...with the court of public opinion only helping to drive forward the so-called war between men and women...a war of the media's doing.
Priorities and provable truths must become paramount if the #MeToo movement is ever to gain true and lasting credibility, and until it does so this movement is really doing more harm than good.
Now let the attacks on me begin...I'm a strong woman...I can take it.
