SJWs claim more victims

Today's SJW victims are Canada's Justin Trudeau and Richard Stallman. How far will this go?

Doesn't Canada have more important issues than somebody's Halloween costume 20 years ago? I very much doubt that anyone is really offended. All I hear is people who pretend to be offended in behalf of others.

Stallman's crime was defending Marvin Minsky. Minsky is dead, and cannot defend himself against the accusations of misbehavior. The accusations are doubtful, and I don't believe them either. Stallman should certainly be allowed to defend a colleague from false accusations.

The NY Times has reporters profiting off their dubious accusations in a "She Said" book. In particular, they attack Gloria Allred and her lawyer daughter for not being forthcoming for their book. In one case, Allred's firm got some woman a $125k confidential settlement in 2004 for watching Harvey Weinstein masturbate. The NY Times attacks Allred for not getting a better deal for the woman, but that was an exceptionally favorable settlement for the woman. My guess is that 99% of women would eagerly take such a settlement. I guess the point of She Said is to whine about women's issues, even if they don't make any sense.
