Allegations of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct have despatched shockwaves throughout the nation. And studies of his conduct should have gotten out earlier than Hollywood might devise a unified recreation plan as a result of the left is now melting down and contradicting itself greater than typical.

On Monday, famend clothier Donna Karan completely stepped in it when she was requested about Weinstein. Together with calling Harvey and his spouse “great,” she mentioned, “Clearly, the remedy of girls all around the world is one thing that has at all times needed to be recognized. I additionally assume how will we show ourselves? How will we current ourselves as ladies? What are we asking? Are we asking for it by presenting all of the sensuality and all of the sexuality?”

“You have a look at all the things all around the world in the present day and the way ladies are dressing and what they’re asking by simply presenting themselves the best way they do. What are they asking for? Bother,” she continued.

As a reminder, Donna Karan is a clothier who attire ladies provocatively for a dwelling. She additionally has an ongoing woman crush for Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, each of whom are/have been married to sexual predators.

Then two nights in the past, virtually in a response to Karan’s inflammatory feedback, CNN’s personal Jake Tapper tried to cowl for the mass hysteria round Weinstein.

He mentioned the politicization of sexual predators is in poor style. In fact, he says this after reminding his viewers that Donald Trump has been accused of sexual harassment by 11 ladies.

Nevertheless it’s actually unhealthy to politicize ethical wrongdoing, proper? Humorous, all I’ve seen on CNN for the previous week and a half has been a blatant politicization of the Las Vegas bloodbath.

And yesterday, Lindsay Lohan got here ahead in a since-deleted Instagram story, saying she’s labored with Weinstein and by no means had an issue with the man.

“Hello! I’m in Dubai. I’m house and I really feel very unhealthy for Harvey Weinstein proper now. I don’t assume it’s proper what’s happening. I believe Georgina must take a stand and be there for her husband. He’s by no means harmed me or did something to me — we’ve performed a number of films collectively. I believe everybody must cease — I believe it’s fallacious. So get up,” she posted.

Saying Weinstein shouldn’t be punished as a result of he didn’t do something to you is like saying Martin Shkreli shouldn’t go to jail as a result of not one of the medication you’re on have been affected by his doubtful value inflation.

The left’s fall out continues. As everyone knows, it took Hillary Clinton 5 days to launch three sentences about Harvey by way of a spokesperson. To be clear, she retweeted the assertion. It wasn’t even posted as an unique assertion on her personal Twitter account.

“I used to be shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The conduct described by ladies coming ahead can’t be tolerated. Their braveness and the assist of others is crucial in serving to to cease this type of conduct,” Clinton said.

I assume we shouldn’t be stunned by this one, seeing as Clinton is married to the Predator-in-Chief, Invoice, and Weinstein donated probably the most cash to her out of each different politician.

Such widespread hypocrisy surrounding the Weinstein state of affairs makes it overtly obvious that the left stands for nothing and falls for something. No less than in instances of disaster, conservatives stand collectively in a united entrance as a result of they really adhere to an identifiable perception system.

It’s too straightforward to poke holes within the life raft that liberals are scrambling aboard to flee the Weinstein Titanic; we’re truly witnessing each boats sink in actual time.
