Feminist Writer Defends Al Franken, Says He Should Get The Pass Because He Is A Democrat

The utter hypocrisy of the left is incredible. For the left, the ends justify the means. And, the real crime for them is just being conservative and being a Republican. Nothing more…

“Feminist writer Kate Harding wrote in the Washington Post that she doesn’t think Sen. Al Franken should resign over sexual assault allegations because he is a Democrat.

Harding, the author of “Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America” admitted that having Democratic abusers resign would be harmful to her own political goals, and thus those sexual assaulters and harassers should be forgiven. Franken is accused of forcibly kissing a woman and there is a photo of him groping her while she is sleeping.

She argues that there are probably other Democrats who have committed sexual misconduct, so “if we set this precedent in the interest of demonstrating our party’s solidarity with harassed and abused women, we’re only going to drain the swamp of people who, however flawed, still regularly vote to protect women’s rights and freedoms.”

“I’m betting that there will be more. And more after that,” she writes. “And they won’t all come from states with Democratic governors and a deep bench of progressive replacements. Some will, if ousted, have their successors chosen by Republicans.”
Harding also claims that ousting Democrats who are abusers will only harm women in the future because there will be less “champion[s] for women’s rights” in Congress.

“If the short-term ‘right thing’ leads to long-term political catastrophe for American women, I think we need to reconsider our definition of the right thing,” she asserts. “Don’t just apologize and drop out of sight. Do penance. Live the values you campaigned on. Be a selfless champion for women’s rights.”

Be a champion for women’s rights” – You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

She concludes by claiming that if more than one woman accuses Franken and he turns out to be a “predator,” she will then ask her to resign.

Feminist writer Kate Harding is a fraud as are most Liberals – they speak one language and encourage another. She is saying that Franken shouldn’t resign because he’s a Democrat, but if he was a Republican she would be yelling and screaming for his resignation!

I can’t believe the double standard. Moore has allegations thrown at him and there are cries for him to drop out of his senate race and be ousted from the Senate even before he is seated (remember an allegation by definition does not it is true). Yet, there is an actual photo of Franken grabbing a sleeping women’s breast-the truth, in this case, is visible and tangible and this feminist is soft-peddling Franken’s behavior. The left knows how to twist things.
