Even before the verdict came in, the six-week-long trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard had ramifications beyond the courtroom. Experts were warning that anti-feminist groups were using the trial to mobilize and that defamation lawsuits were being used to silence survivors of domestic violence. Now that a jury has sided with Depp, advocates say the verdict could have a chilling effect on other survivors looking to speak out against their abusers.No, Heard is not a survivor of domestic violence. She is a perpetrator.
"It just adds another barrier to what victims and survivors have to deal with, as they're determining how to get the support and safety they need," said Ruth Glenn, president and CEO of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
We can only hope that lying perps like her get deterred. Just tell the truth, and no one will sue for defamation.
It is almost impossible to ever have a court order someone to pay damages for defamation. It only happened to Heard because of her relentless and vindictive lying to damage her ex-husband.
NPR illustrates crazy feminist thinking. MeToo has come to mean believe lying women.
At the other extreme, Daily Stormer writes:
From there you had this downward spiral, with Jewish feminist lawyers attacking basically all men in Hollywood with the metoo movement, which culminated in Harvey Weinstein being sentenced to prison on claims that he “raped” his girlfriend one time during a years long sexual relationship she had with him. No evidence was presented to support the claim, and the court decided that a woman’s words are effectively the word of God – it is impossible she is lying because she is a woman.Yes, there have been a lot of MeToo hoaxes.
So, maybe the Depp win rolls us back to Brock Turner – to 2015 standards. It’s not going to affect women’s privileges in the workplace, their ability to weasel out of traffic tickets and shoplifting arrests, or the sentencing standards for serious crimes. It will just slightly dull the blade of the fake rape and abuse charges that women have been successfully lodging against men for the past several years.
But that’s not a small thing – gaining any ground at all against the left is a big victory in a society that has been on an uninterrupted slide into the abyss for decades. This isn’t as big as the Trump 2016 victory, but it’s in the same category as that – it is a gaining of ground by sanity against the insanity of Jewish leftism. I think “this is women’s Jussie Smollett” is a good description of what transpired this week.
In this post-#MeToo moment, misogyny and celebrity go hand in hand. ...No, the case was not about misogyny. The public would have favored Heard, if she had not lied so much.
Let’s at least be clear about what that means. It means that we value the comfort and self-regard of men, especially famous ones, more than we value the safety and dignity of women, even famous ones.
