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.
