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She was also urged to comment on whether or not Rose should have been replaced by a woman instead of a man, because #equality, to which she gave yet another shockingly refreshing answer: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

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
