Presidential candidate Kamala Harris has come out swinging for “throuple” Rep. Katie Hill — saying her intense “public shaming” highlights a double standard for female politicians.Of course men and women are not held to the same standards. Harris got her political start by being a mistress to a married man, who was a very powerful politician.
Sen. Harris told Buzzfeed News that Hill, a close political ally, was the victim of a “campaign of harassment and intimidation” and “cyber exploitation” after naked photos of her were released to the media.
“It was clearly meant to embarrass her,” Harris told the outlet.
“There’s so much that people do about women and their sexuality that’s about shaming them.”
“It just sends a signal to other women that’s discouraging them from running for office.”
Harris revealed that she had a “personal conversation” with Hill since the scandal broke over alleged trysts with staffers.
She told the site that she “respected” Hill’s decision to resign from Congress because “she has to do what’s best for her and her constituents.”
“But, you know, let’s also speak the truth that men and women are not held to the same standards,” she said.
Harris and Hill participated in false accusations against Brett Kavanaugh.
National Review reports:
Steven Wilson said all students should find ‘intellectual joy’ at school. An online mob slammed his ‘white supremacist rhetoric,’ and he lost his job.The definition of white supremacism keeps expanding. Now anyone seeking academic excellence is a white supremacist.
The Wash. Post reports:
[Lt. Col. Vindman] told lawmakers that he was deeply troubled by what he interpreted as an attempt by the president to subvert U.S. foreign policy …I guess the Wash. Post is now admitting that this is all a Jewish coup.
The President was elected by the people, and he sets foreign policy until his term expires. It is impossible for the President to subvert foreign policy. Only some anti-American Jewish ideologue would say anything else. I don't doubt that Vindman has some sincere beliefs about what Ukraine policy ought to be, but he was not elected President.
