Know who hasn’t been caught in a sexual misconduct scandal? VP Mike Pence.

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


By the time you watch this episode, it's likely that another Hollywood or media or political celebrity is going to be revealed as a sexual abuser, maybe even a rapist.

Matt Lauer, the male feminist, was just fired from his prominent morning TV show on NBC. It emerged that NBC had installed a special system in Lauer’s office, so he could press a button and lock the doors — to keep people in.

He's now on a growing list of other disgraced male feminists and Democrats: Charlie Rose, Al Franken, Mark Halperin, Glenn Thrush, John Conyers, Garrison Keillor (who had just written an op-ed saying Franken shouldn’t have to step down.) Harvey Weinstein and James Toback. Kevin Spacey and George Takei, both male feminists, both huge Democrats, both accused of molesting young men.

I don’t think we’ve seen the tip of the iceberg. Note the pattern that's emerging:

Everyone "in the industry” says these were open secrets. Except the people closest to it, who claim they had no clue!

But let me remind you about a news story from this spring:

U.S. Vice President "Mike Pence told the Hill that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either.”

The media went crazy. Here’s Vice magazine:

"No Matter Who He Eats With, Mike Pence Is Bad for Women"

Oh, by the way, Vice, it was recently revealed, required young women to sign contracts agreeing to be sexually harassed in the workplace.

It’s an upside down world where Mike Pence is demonized, the Al Franken is defended.

But the grossest part?

That it’s the male feminists, and the professional feminists like Jezebel, who are the most outraged by Pence, and a morality that truly respects and protects women...

NEXT: Our own John Cardillo offers his expert analysis on the Washington bombshell of the day:

Trump's ex-national security adviser, Michael Flynn, has plead guilty to lying to the FBI, and is now cooperating in the investigation into so-called "Russian influence" on the election.

THEN: I have more thoughts on the UK's reaction to Trump's retweets, and why I now believe PM May should lose her job over this.

FINALLY: Your messages to me — and an UPDATE on The Rebel phone app that you helped crowdfund!

Middle class white guys (exclusively)Andrew? The ones on their way to work in the morning, are grabbing your body parts”

Much as you want to trivialize it and make it about immigrants, it’s not. Again I’ll point out to who the recent prominent accusations are leveled against.

If you say so Andrew. Face blind, never heard of that one. Sounds like a good one to have in an apologists tool kit.”

Ah, it’s learning time. I enjoy this.
The clinical term is prosopagnosia. I am mildly autistic and they tend to run together. I have workarounds but they’re not 100% and don’t really work in situations like that.

Thanks Liza. Yes, it could have been a lot worse. It happened a number of years ago now, but, I do remember feeling very scared. I was ready to fight if it came to that. I will never forget their hatred, or their names.

Honestly Tammie, that must have been frightening to say the least. . Good for you for taking it to the police, not that the Mohammad’s didn’t deserve a little swift justice. We need more men like your brother, but we don’t want them to go to jail and you can be sure there would be no mercy for a white boy defending his sister from assault or maybe worse from Muslims in Justin’s Canada. It will be just like Britain pretty soon. Assaults and rapes won’t even be investigated.
Glad nothing bad happened Tammie, that could have been a lot worse.

Liza, no middle class white guys among the 2 Mohammads , 1 Abdel & 1 non-caucasian (that was not identified.)
When I told my brother what happened, he grabbed a bat and insisted he should go and look for them… I convinced him that calling the police would be better; besides, I didn’t want him to get arrested for assault causing bodily harm if he found them!

Tammie way to wield an umbrella! Are you sure they weren’t ‘middle class white guys’ ?
commented 2017-12-04 15:41:59 -0500
Andrew, what a bizarre comment to me after relating what I had experienced at the hands of 3 muslims, possibly 4, as my friend I and couldn’t identify the fourth.
Anyway, I consider you an apologist for Islam, even more so since your earlier post. I think you are a useful idiot.

Where Andrew, where? Tammie did not identify a location.

No Andrew. Putting your head in the sand is cowardly and it puts those around you in danger, by pretending there is no threat. Cowardly ,and stupid. "

That, or there is no threat and your internal alarm systems are generating false-positives.

“liza rosie commented 16 hours ago
Andrew what do you mean by being ‘groped’ , bumped into, stared at, spoken to, or did someone fondle your breast or grab your crotch or butt? Where on your body were you groped? Did you report these ’groping’s’.
Was it an entirely European male phenomena or were you ever groped by a non European minority?” Graping means grabbing. Not taking accidental bump, but very deliberate. I did report the first one, but nothing came of it. One issue is that I’m nearly completely face-blind and wouldn’t recognize the perp even if he walked right in from of me 20 minutes later (I have to consciously pick out distinguishing features to tell people apart. As you might guess, this sort of incident is not condusive to picking those out).

They were, for the most part, young to middle aged white guys. As I’m sure you’re aware the “multiculturalism” is primarily suburban, with the core and fringes, excluding a couple housing projects, being some of the whitest parts of the GTA. Guess who’s riding the subway around the downtown loop at 8:30am? It ain’t the refugees, it’s middle class white guys who should know better.

When I was thirteen, a female friend and I were followed and accosted by older teens/young adults while walking home from a mall. I was carrying an umbrella, and, when their “leader” asked me if had ever been raped, I asked him if he ever had a broken nose… while brandishing my umbrella. I told him to get out of our way and continued walking”

And you’re far from the only person who has had such problems. The problem here isn’t Muslims (who are notably absent from the recent public instances), but general bad attitudes among certain men. How do you fix that? Back to Pence, do you feel the need to be constantly chaperoned to prevent it? Or do we need to tell the creeps to stop being creeps?

I told him to get out of our way and continued walking. The racial insults toward us continued and one of them pushed my friend. They followed us for a few more blocks all the while screaming “white sluts, white bitches, etc….”
We gave our statements at home after we had called the police, Later, we were able to identify 3 out of 4 young men when we attended the police station to look at photos…Two named Mohammad, one Abdel. I think the youngest in the group hadn’t been arrested yet so the police didn’t have a mug shot. We were given a file number and told if we see them again, to immediately call the police. I never encountered these racist thugs again and we were not contacted to testify in court. No idea what the police did with that file, or if they even spoke to them.

I was scared, but, I didn’t cower and was ready to defend myself. The adrenaline was surging the entire time. My friend felt the same way.

Ezra, unfortunately the presence of the wife doesn’t necessarily make it safer for the abusee. The best (or should that be worst?) example of this is Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka.

Some people are just evil. Arguably, some cultures are also just evil. Hollywood is far less evil than groups like ISIS or Boko Haram, but all of them need to be cleaned-up.

I commuted on the T.O. subway system, and took Go trains to Oakville weekly, for a few years in fact, and never had an actual physical ‘situation’.
Staring and comments on occasion, asking for money, and I saw a lot of disgusting things, but I was never groped or saw a woman being groped or heard any of my friends comment on being groped on the transit system. Mind you that was a few years ago. If it is different now, what would you attribute that to? Toronto is as multi cultural as it gets, with a very large increase of ‘refugees’ over the past few years. Was it an entirely European male phenomena or were you ever groped by a non European minority?

No Andrew. Putting your head in the sand is cowardly and it puts those around you in danger, by pretending there is no threat. Cowardly ,and stupid. That’s why I say apologists are a danger to everyone who knows the the only way to address a threat is to do something about it. Apologists are lazy. They ignore their primal alarm system, because they have been brainwashed, fed the koolaid and lied to…and it takes less effort to ignore any given situation than to act on it. ‘I have seen it first hand.’
You think fundamentalist Islam is not a threat to the country and is overblown hyperbole. Do you not understand the purpose of the caliphate? Just a fairy tale is it Andrew?
Ask an apostate their opinion. Then come back and tell me it’s hyperbole to be fearful of Islam.

Andrew Stephenson have you ever been assaulted by a man? If not then why can you crap on them then whine when we criticize Jihadists? "

You’re in Edmonton? Ask your female colleagues if they’ve ever been groped on the LRT. I have. I used to commute on Toronto’s subway, happened there probably half a dozen times. It’s very widespread, which is why the issue has gained such traction.

Liza Rosie:
““When you are afraid, the terrorists win.” is a cowardly, lazy thing to say. Like some kind of mantra instead of actually doing something to address the dangers Islam brings with it.”
I dispute your use of the term “brainwashed”. I have actually witnessed a lot of this firsthand and can say that most of the hyperbole is overblown. It’s those who don’t for whom the fear finds traction.

Being afraid is cowardly. This is one of those by-definition type issues.

The Old Testament and the Quran are in large part descended of the same source mythology. Both invoke things like killing of infidels.
To paraphrase a rather famous quote, Islam doens’t kill people. People kill people.

Andrew said,
I can’t believe anyone other than the paid liars would utter such a stupid stupid thing. Idiotic.Ignorant and dangerous. Apologists who would repeat such a line are brainwashed, they have to be. No one in their right mind would ever say it….and you are still doing the relativist bullcrap trying to equate the old Testament to the Quran.
It makes me sick, it is so ignorant. Fundamentalist Islam is responsible for slaughter in real time right now as we speak, not Christians. People who say such things are no friend of the west and in my opinion do not deserve to enjoy its freedoms.
Apologists are our enemy, and allies of those who would harm and or subjugate us.

“When you are afraid, the terrorists win.” is a cowardly, lazy thing to say. Like some kind of mantra instead of actually doing something to address the dangers Islam brings with it.

Scary and creepy isn’t teen/young adult vernacular and it is incorrect to even make the suggestion. They are words used by adults on a daily basis when it applies to countless things. In this case, it appropriately applies to Pence per his political and social views.

It’s actually fascinating how incredibly clueless you are so many things and how just live in a bubble of complete ignorance. I actually feel sorry for the people who live with you and have to deal with you in the real world on a daily basis.

Frank/Jack
Poor Sheep of the Week, your Peter Pan complex is really showing. You used teen/young adult vernacular when describing Pence, all I did was point it out. Then you said , " In fact, scary and creepy are common words used to describe Pence in the media, etc. " Yes, leftist regressives recently used “scary and creepy” when they posted all their tripe on social media in reaction to Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations.
So, this was your excuse for coming across as a juvenile…then comes, the attack when the obvious has to be explained to you.
Again, you have no idea what you are talking about.

Sickness that goes unacknowledged is still a sickness Frank/Jack – get help.

My cab is here. Take a hike!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Then why bring up teens at all in reference to scary and creepy regarding Pence? Scary and creepy ARE words that adult use generally speaking. I didn’t use high school slang here.

The media isn’t responsible for any words that I use. I was simply conveying that scary and creepy are words that have been used by the media and people on social media to describe Pence.

Although I find it hilarious that you say that, considering you regurgitate words that Ezra/The Rebel use all the time in your posts. Ezra says it – you repeat it. It’s like he has direct access to your brain, since clearly you can’t think on your own and parrot what you are told.

You are boring, closed minded, out of touch and uptight as fuck – I don’t expect you to be on websites and forums that are the exact opposite of that. Your internet choices are pretty much The Rebel and anything with the same view as The Rebel or Rebel approved links like Info Wars, Breitbart, Paul Joseph Watson, etc.

You are a sheep who only wants to get the same information from numerous sources and when opposing facts are presented – you find it boring, lame and you eventually leave the thread, because your brain can’t handle something that goes against what you have been programmed to believe.

Assumptions again Andrew. Claiming to know how and why they came to this agreement. I think it’s remarkable that you on the one hand think he isn’t “actually straight” then, you claim " It iS his doing because he’s the one that demands a chaperone, to protect him from temptation that all women apparently represent to him.

This position is schizophrenic! Not following you down the rabbit hole…Wow"

That’s why I put the sentence right after in,. " That, or again, he’s putting on a show because he thinks that’s how other people think. ". A repressed gay or ace wouldn’t necessarily know how he’s expected to think, especially if he’s too afraid of being smote to ask.

“Too bad you only referenced Saudi muslims and claim it’s culture…. you are lacking knowledge. Read Islamic texts and gain a better understanding of the ideology.

As a side note, about an hour from me, there is a large enclave of muslims from various parts of the world. "… The Torah/Quran/Old Testament all say very similar things. The Abrahamic religions all have a common root so that’s not surprising. What matters is the interpretation, and that’s not inherent to the religion itself.

As a side not for you, there is a large population of Muslims in my condo building, they speak English and wear Western clothes. Some are even Central Asian, which is Caucasian genetic stock rather than Arabic – they’re white. A few are even intermarried with established Canadians. I have yet to be be mugged in the stairwell.

Raising their families in the tradition of burka’s, niqabs, polygamy, misogyny,consanguineous marriage, and other practices which are 7th century. Very little english spoken by the adults, young female children wearing hijabs and being pushed around by brothers and fathers.

ANDREW STEPHENSON commented 19 mins ago
No, I don’t condone the patriarchal attitude of some Muslims. That being said, most of the Muslims you encounter in North America are fairly liberal and it’s relatively uncommon here. The Saudi treatment, for example, is abominable. I know a few Saudi men and the latent sexism is occasionally visible, but that’s cultural rather than religious – Canadian raised Muslims don’t have that attitude at all.
-————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Andrew, this is only true until muslims make up a certain percentage of the population. Then they feel the pressure to conform to sharia law as they perceive it. Then all the moderation evaporates and leaves the misogynistic residue.
