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She was also urged to comment on whether or not Rose should have been replaced by a woman instead of a man, because #equality, to which she gave yet another shockingly refreshing answer: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

A Perfect Example How the Media Lies to Push a Left-Wing Agenda

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda.

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda. Vance, who wrote the popular book Hillbilly Elegy, reports that he decided to quit the board of directors of Kentucky green energy company AppHarvest. But after he resigned, the left-wing media began pushing the fake news tale that he left the board under a cloud because Bloomberg caused the company to force him out. This claim that he was forced out is a provable lie. But despite the truth, outlets including the Cincinnati Enquirer, The Lexington Herald Leader, The New York Post, Bloomberg and the Associated Press and more all pushed the lie as if it was incontrovertible fact. Bloomberg claimed that Vance was forced out because he posted “controversial tweets” which had prompted the Bloomberg to ask AppHarvest to account for Vance’s tweets. But this is false. Vance did post tweets that leftists would find “controversial,” but they were posted after he left the company. Vance finally went to Twitter to describe how the left-wing media lied about the situation. “Alright, here’s a story about how the media often shapes narratives instead of reporting the truth, and how a small untruth can morph into a lie that’s repeated again and again throughout the media bubble,” Vance wrote Friday on Twitter.
