Ayyy Greg I almost missed this. 

But even though I know your questioning me is a somewhat sarcastic criticism of my calling the Russia v Trump allegations McCarthyism ... I'm gonna weigh in on this thread as if it isn't Smiley

Absolutely not.  Sexual harassment is NOT the new McCarthyism.  They don't even belong in the same sentence.

McCarthyism was persecution with a lack of evidence.  Or looking at innocuous, meaningless things and spinning them in the harshest and most negative light in an attempt to demonize.

Like say ... oh I don't know ... off the top of my head ... in a world brought together by globalism, an American businessmen doing business with people in Russia being spun in the most negative possible light by those self same advocates of the aforementioned globalism. 

Like say ... a charitable Foundation being brought under suspicion for receiving donations from people who live in Russia.

No evidence of any wrongdoing necessary.  But let's call it treason anyway.  And if you dare point out the inconsistencies in the accusers pattern of thoughts, you're branded a traitor as well.

THAT's McCarthyism.

In the sexual harassment cases, there is actual wrongdoing at the core of the accusations.  Harvey Weinstein isn't being accused of talking with hot, sexy actresses.  He's being accused of coercing them in a variety of ways to service him sexually. 

But the snowballing effect is definitely starting to take on the trappings of and sure has the danger of turning into the Salem Witch Trials. 

I mean look what we're already down to.

We have a Republican reporter who voted for George W Bush twice, worked for Fox News and was a panelist on Hannity ... suddenly remembering 11 years ago Al Franken in a skit calling for a kiss she (by her own admission) voluntarily participated in ... sticking his tongue down her throat.  We have a photo obviously staged as a joke, where he's quite obviously NOT touching her, but being crude nonetheless and being called "groping" and "molesting."  And we have people ... even leftists ... calling for him to step down and one person even going so far as to say he should be jailed. 

Is she looking for attention and a career bump?  Can anybody even ask that without being burned at the stake as well? 

That's some Salem witch trial shit right there.

Fun fact.  People always overlook that McCarthyism started with Truman signing an executive order calling for "loyalty screening" among all employees of the federal government.  Good stuff.

Seems to be so. Unfortunately all those seekers their 15 min of fame are taking away from the legitimate victims.

Hey Q.  What do ya think?

Greg

I think we are experiencing something which is healthy for our society.  It transcends everything which divides us  and connects us to each other as human beings.   Those of us who are not women, all have women in our lives who we support and treasure. This behavior which abuses women is something we would not accept happening to our mothers or wives or sisters or daughters.  Why is it any different for women or girls who are strangers?

As with anything, though, the road to hell can be paved with good intentions.  Some women lie, cheat and steal; just like some men do.  Character is a matter of personal a growth and achievement.  Whenever mere allegations are accepted as true without proof, then it poison's the well.  Pretty soon no one will drink from that well.  Returning to the rule of law and avoiding mob rule based upon tabloid sensationalism and media driven frenzy,is the best course for ferreting out the truth.

It only becomes a witch hunt and McCarthyism if we allow ourselves to be convinced by solely by the nature of the allegations and not allow our courts (civil and criminal) to sort what's real and what is not.  As flawed as this system can be, it's better than a Witch Hunt and mob rule!  The next one accused could be you..or your son...or father... or anyone.

As Wally stated, there are courts to address that.

Echoing FC, good post Wally. Smiley
