Allegations against Tom Brokaw diminish legitimate complaints

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff

On last night's episode of Off The Cuff Declassified, The Rebel's Hollywood Conservative Amanda Head joined me to discuss the sexual misconduct allegations being made against former NBC News Anchor Tom Brokaw.

The allegations are from many years ago, with some dating back to the 1990s and 1960s. They include instances of inappropriate tickling and grabbing. 

Although the allegations against Brokaw are certainly inappropriate in any environment, they are nothing compared to the crimes of Harvey Weinstein and should not be held in the same regard.

WATCH my interview with Amanda to see why she thinks the allegations against Brokaw actually diminish real issues regarding the treatment of women.

Space Moose i think maybe to come in a room and fart then leave or pass by people and fart. That would be my guess?

Actually, now that I’ve made this comment, I have no doubt that someone like Ted Brodaw would have done something like this.
These kind of men are above and beyond any perimeters of discretion. No one is going to tell them to not act this way toward the women who work with them.
Women are dispensable. They are to be used in whatever way they want. And unfortunately, women get into these positions, get exposed to these problems, and then leave the jobs because they will never be acknowledged or believed because the main money maker is the MALE character such as Tom Brokaw, or whomever.

Women will always be used, abused and they, in the past, allowed it because they couldn’t do anything about it.

I remember a woman who challenged the ‘system’ on this subject and she was kicked out. And that was in the public service where no one ever got kicked out. But he continued in his ‘Director of Air Navigation’ job. The ‘pig’ (as he was known) as he didn’t even get a reprimand. Frightening.

It’s when you boss calls you into his office and shows you the porn on his computer screen and says he thought a ‘woman like you would appreciate this’……because you’re single>?????
Big difference when men and women are joking. Big difference. But, men aren’t always joking.
If society doesn’t recognize that men are OUT OF LINE with many of their comments, then women are going to be the brunt of these jokes and will suffer the abuse of these jokes.
Society needs to wake up and recognize when they are joking and when they are OUT OF LINE. Men need to smarten up and treat women with kindness and some respect. Wouldn’t they treat their Mothers, sister and wives with the same respect? Why are the women at work fair game?

In the context of what Amanda was saying, what is crop dusting?
