What. The. Hell?
~ SOMETIME comedian & U.S. Senator “Al” Franken “honking” a sleeping female member of a tour for the U.S. military? And getting photographic evidence of a sexual assault (legally)… and force-kissing her in a public skit? Brilliance in action.
“By their fruits ye shall know them”, as The Man said. Here’s the Senator’s squishy apology.. was it for getting caught, or for having been a pig in the first place? Hard to say with this kind of public character.
Then there’s this horrible sketch ‘comedy’. A peek into a creepy mind?
Make a difference. Why not let good old Al know what you think?
‘Mistakes’ Were Made
Of course, this is a terrible quandary for the progressive “truth is relative” crowd, isn’t it? If it seems right to Spacey & Weinstein & Franken & their ilk, how can it be actually & objectively ‘Wrong™‘?
Even so, the tribal hooters are springing to the defence of “their” guy, for political reasons.. just like they did for old rapey Clinton, and yelling “Oh YEAH? Republicans!”. . Hell, yeah Republicans, Democrats, Independents… pretty much a large part of DC & U.S. political culture is all about the crazed sex, power, and getting away with bad things, like spoiled children; like God isn’t watching.
Franken’s crisis is now all part of deposing the evil rapey God-emperor Trump (as they see him). You know, because he talked about grabbing crotches once.
“I couldn’t believe it. He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep. I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated. How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny? I told my husband everything that happened and showed him the picture.”
Man In The Mirror
Let’s remember: these are simply uninvestigated accusations, at this point. Let’s not go nuts & grab the torches & pitchforks just yet. Accusers lie, real perps cover up, and not all the accused are actually guilty.
And before we enjoy any more finger-pointing and moral panics, let’s recall that Jesus said it wasn’t enough not just to refrain from adultery– we must also refrain from lusting after others (as objects), and seek rather to love them and do them good, as our neighbour, and co-pilgrims to heaven, and sons and daughters of Our Father.
And we cannot rush to forgive the exact same activities on the part of people we like, either. God’s justice is merciful, but true.. for all, or else for none.
As for the woman above? If he did what he’s accused of, I’d file legal and civil charges against the virtue-signalling “feminist” self-righteous doofus Senator. Cough up, Mr. Giggles.
