Gayle King Just Said What Everyone Needed to Hear About the #MeToo Movement

The truth is, while King seems to clearly be pretty left-leaning, she’s speaking for more Americans than the loudest social justice keyboard warriors want you to believe.

The #MeToo movement became a parody of itself almost before it began.

As soon as the hashtag caught fire on Twitter and got slapped on to everything from an inappropriate joke at work to downright rape, it became a symbol of everything wrong with third-wave feminism and how tone-deaf the left is to issues of sexual morality.

So it was refreshing to hear that CBS anchor Gayle King has plainly declared what we all needed to hear: due process is conspicuously lacking from the conversation about sexual abuse and women in the workplace.

King got thrust into the center of the chatter when #MeToo and #TimesUp first began to emerge after her former co-host, Charlie Rose was hit with multiple sexual harassment accusations.

Refreshingly, King does not hold Rose’s behavior towards women against all men, as she shared with the New York Times this week.

“No. I am not worried about people misinterpreting what I say,” she said when asked if the experienced has changed her relationship with male colleagues. “I don’t want to turn myself into a pretzel trying to figure it out. You know when something is inappropriate. Listen, if it’s not something you would say or do in front of your wife or your mother or your sister, that’s a really good guideline.”

She was also urged to comment on whether or not Rose should have been replaced by a woman instead of a man, because #equality, to which she gave yet another shockingly refreshing answer:

“There are a lot of men in the world; I think it’s good to have one at the table. I really advocated bringing in another man. Could Norah and I have done it? Yep, but I’m glad that wasn’t the decision that was made.”

Imagine that! A man’s voice can be just as valuable as a woman’s. We are actually at the point where this needs to be said.

Finally, she made her most profound and important observation yet about #MeToo feminism, expressing concern over the “hang ’em high” aspect of the culture.

“I do worry about that, because I think when a woman makes an accusation, the man instantly gets the death penalty,” she said. “There has to be some sort of due process here. All of these inappropriate behaviors are not all the same.”

If you are familiar with the all-men-are-rapists school of thought, this is known as “victim shaming,” and no doubt there are radical feminists out there tearing their pink hair out over comments like this.

But the truth is, while King seems to clearly be pretty left-leaning, she’s speaking for more Americans than the loudest social justice keyboard warriors want you to believe.

No matter what side of the political aisle a person is on, they should be able to distinguish between due process and a witch hunt. But the #MeToo movement has dangerously blurred the lines between slightly uncouth behavior that is often perfectly acceptable for a man to do in our current culture if a woman is attracted to him, and downright violent rape.

This fatal error not only places men who are far from predatory in the same category of those who are legitimately worth of receiving the death penality, it also turns actual sexual assault victims into the girl who cried wolf.

And that is truly the most tragic aspect of all about the misguided #MeToo culture.

Suspected Terrorist Murders Three In Attack At French Church, Mayor Wants To Oust ‘Islamo-Fascism’

Published

Three individuals were murdered in cold blood in Nice, France on Thursday in what looks to be the third terrorist attack on French soil in the past month. A man armed with a knife walked into Notre Dame Basilica in Nice and killed two people, fatally wounding a third individual who was able to get outside before dying. French police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. “Everything leads us to believe it was a terrorist attack within the Notre Dame basilica,” Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi posted on social media. Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire: Several French media outlets reported that at least one of the victims of the attack was beheaded, mirroring an attack earlier this month in which a French schoolteacher was beheaded by a suspected Islamic radical. Police captured the attacker soon after the incident, shooting him in the shoulder and transporting him to a local hospital, according to The Guardian. Estrosi said that while the man was being taken into custody, he repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar.” “We have two people killed inside the church … and a third person who was in a bar facing the church where she had taken refuge,” Estrosi told the media. “Enough is enough … we have to remove this Islamo-fascism from our territory.” On Oct. 16, an 18-year-old man beheaded French history teacher Samuel Paty outside of the secondary school where he taught. Paty was killed after showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed to his class for a lesson on free expression. “Before it was a school professor, this time the Islamo-fascist barbarism chose to attack inside a church. Again, it is very symbolic,” the mayor said. Toward the end of the month of September, a suspected terrorist with a butcher’s knife seriously wounded two…

Luxury Buildings Hire Armed Guards In Preparation For Election Day Madness

Published

The ultra-rich in the city of New York have been preparing for the possibility of civil unrest on Election Day next, hiring armed guards to watch over luxury buildings in Manhattan. Managers over at the Time Warner Center, located on Columbus Circle — where penthouse apartments are only a measly $62.5 million — are deploying off-duty police officers armed with “submachine guns” to keep an eye on things. Other homes and buildings for the wealthy are taking other measures to increase security. “Everybody is worried about security,” an insider said to reporters. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.” The insider said the building is currently working with the NYPD and Homeland Security. “There will be officers with submachine guns,” the source stated. “We’ve always had immense security, but there will be more. We’ll have extra patrols. The entire building can be shut down with one button.” via Fox News: Many buildings are hiring off duty cops instead of private security companies because they fear a repeat of Denver, where a private guard shot and killed a protester, said one real estate insider. “The NYPD is advising buildings to get the extra security,” the source said. “They’ve never done this before.” Other top buildings, such as 220 Central Park South, which is home to hedge funder Ken Griffin’s $238 million condo, say they are already well guarded but will take extra precautions, like keeping entrances locked at night, and only open to residents. How sad is it that folks are terrified about their physical safety and for the property they own simply because of a national election, which is one of the many privileges of living in a republic? We, unlike many nations, get to choose…
