Our Betters Order Us to Freak Out Over Trump’s Locker Room Banter (but ignore Hillary’s assaults on Bill’s victims)
Over the last few weeks, our betters in the Media and the Establishment got together and ordered us all to freak out over an old tape (from 11 years ago!) of Donald Trump and Billy Bush hanging out before an interview where the two guys talked about women the way that straight guys have talked about women since prehistoric times, whenever guys are alone together. I know that our politically-correct obsessed values-signaling culture is supposed to go into complete meltdown whenever heterosexual men are engaging in displays of masculinity anywhere on the planet, but now the Left’s Perpetual Outrage Machine has become a time machine. Not only should straight men be pilloried for whatever they say out in public in the present…but they also must be annihilated for anything they said in private (but were secretly recorded saying) over a decade ago. When will this foolishness end?
I’m as gay as rainbows and have mostly women for friends and I think straight men should be able to say whatever the hell they want when they are in a locker room or someplace else hanging out together. Let them have their thing. I don’t particularly “get” why they want to banter like that, but I also don’t like it when gay guys get together and talk sex either. And I have heard women when it’s just a group of them together, alone, cackling and mocking and tossing back the chardonnay while they talk about men. Though I’ve never witnessed it in the wild, I bet when lesbians herd together in one aisle or another at the local Home Depot and talk about Katy Perry or whoever it would get pretty vulgar too.
First of all, this is supposed to be a free country with First Amendment rights, so no one should live in terror of being secretly recorded…and then having that recording pop up at some point in the future when the Powers That Be in the Establishment want to destroy you. To me this feels like something the mob would do — and it might explain why so many GOP politicians cave to Democrats and act like they are being blackmailed. It’s probably because they are being blackmailed! How many Republicans out there have something recorded that they thought was off-camera and off-the-record but tee-vee networks are holding on them in a vault somewhere…with the threat being that if that politician ever does something the Left doesn’t like (such as running for president with the intent to actually win) that the blackmailing will end and the tape will be released to destroy that politician? Isn’t blackmailing illegal? Shouldn’t the networks doing this to people be charged with RICO or something?
Secondly, I don’t see much difference between anything that Billy Bush and Donald Trump said to each other and what the guys on Entourage regularly said to one another when they were talking about women. Did you see that Entourage movie that just came out? It was a continuation of the tee-vee show, like how HBO made a Sex in the City movie after the series ended (and then made a sequel to that movie that everyone hated). Come to think of it, the things that the character Samantha regularly said on Sex in the City were much more outrageous than anything that Trump and Bush said on that old Access Hollywood tape. Much of what the women on Sex in the City said was worse than anything the guys said on Entourage, that’s for damn sure. I’d go so far to say that a lot of the dialogue on Sex in the City was not just intentionally vulgar but deliberately stomach-turning and “Look at us, we’re women and we are being unapologetically crude!”…because that was the whole point of the show, to show women being crass and “empowered” by being as course, crude, and revolting as possible while talking about sex on a cable series. The character of Samantha would have been deemed a common whore 20 years ago (she was essentially a prostitute who gave the goods away for free)…but HBO presented her as “a modern woman” on the series and its movie follow-ups. The guys on Entourage may have been crude and sophomoric at times, but no one should pretend that hearing the word “pussy” now and again is something to faint over…because that word was said so often on Sex in the City that any fan of that show should still be in a coma recovering from all of the fainting that series should have induced. It’s amusing how the Left pretends one day that it’s so horrified by something…when that something is what the Left celebrated and adored so much when Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall were doing it on the tee-vee.
I know the Establishment wants us all to be either shrinking violets who faint upon hearing anything politically-incorrect spoken aloud or fragile, damaged, Special Snowflakes who lash out in anger at whatever the latest Outrage-of-the-Day is today…but I think ginning up the Outrage Machine over old locker room banter that Trump engaged in while talking about women with another guy in private means it’s time to shine the light on how Hillary Clinton has treated women through the years.
I say that Hillary’s actions towards women like Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Juanita Broderick, Linda Tripp, and Monica Lewinsky needs to be what we all talk about from now until election day. These women all came forward at various points in the past and bravely spoke out against what Bill Clinton either did to them or to someone they cared about and all of these women were savagely attacked by Hillary. She cold-heartedly and single-mindedly destroyed each of these women even though the things they all said about her husband have proved to be true.
Donald Trump actually seems to love women, in the way that healthy heterosexual men are supposed to love women and brag and posture about women with other guys in private settings. There’s no cultural precedent for what Hillary Clinton does to women though. It is not part of our culture for a woman like Hillary to methodically and sadistically annihilate other women who accuse her husband of rape or other horrific behavior. As far as I know, Hillary Clinton is the only woman of power and importance who has ever gotten away with using her personal power to destroy the lives of her husband’s victims. Can you think of anyone else who has ever done this? If you are someone who chooses to believe the worst about Bill Cosby and you side with Gloria Allred on all those allegations against him, are you aware of Camille Cosby ever doing anything evil to the women who accused her husband of rape? Hillary is the only woman I can think of who is accused of ruthlessly menacing and threatening the women who say they were sexually victimized by her husband. Even Saddam Hussein’s wife (or wives) never popped up in the news being accused of anything like that. I can’t think of a character from either Shakespeare or Greek mythology who ever did anything like what Hillary Clinton has done. She is in totally uncharted territory and we all need to acknowledge that.
Go to any locker room of any gym or any construction site in the country and you will find guys hanging out and male-bonding with exaggerated braggadocio about their exploits with women. Go to a gay gym and hear the same thing, but with guys objectifying other dudes. Pop in some Sex in the City DVDs and hear those four “modern women” do the same thing to men in their lives.
Jump in your time machine and go back 11 years or 21 years or 50 or 100 years and you’ll find men doing the same thing, all the way back to Medieval Times or the Roman Empire or earlier back to caveman days. It’s what men do and have always done and it’s not something that the Powers That Be need to stamp out. This is how people are and have always been!
What Hillary does to women, however, should be criminal. It feels like witness intimidation and victim harassment. Whenever she has targeted one of her husband’s accusers for one of her patented onslaughts, Hillary Clinton has chosen to frighten, berate, intimidate, and brutalize women who claim to have been raped, assaulted, and at the very least sexually harassed by Bill Clinton. So, on top of whatever Bill did to them, these women then had to endure whatever Hillary did to them after they spoke out. That is sick and unprecedented.
Up until now, not many people have been talking about what Hillary did to all these women through the years but I hope that changes going forward. If the Media and the Establishment got together and decided that something Donald Trump said 11 years ago to Billy Bush (when they were male-bonding and speaking off the record and didn’t know they were being recorded) is now suddenly a major news story that needs to keep being hammered a week before a presidential election then I think everything that Hillary Clinton did to Bill Clinton’s many victims through the years should be a news story too.
Fair is fair, I say. I certainly would rather have a president who engages in normal heterosexual male banter with another guy than a president who is equal parts sadistic and vindictive when it comes to ruthlessly silencing her husband’s many victims. For some reason Hillary’s campaign wants to end this election by continuing to make an issue of Trump’s language about women…so in that case the treatment that Hillary directed towards her husband’s sexual victims needs to be talked about just as much.
