NYT Wants Biden Binned! By Charles Taylor
This should be interesting, for it looked like the elites were going to go for Joe Biden as Dumocrat president, who would do China’s bidding. Now there seems to be some confusion in the ranks, because of all the alleged sex crimes piling up against him:
“The New York Times published an op-ed Sunday evening arguing that Democrats should dump former Vice President Joe Biden as their candidate because of the potential damage of Tara Reade’s allegations against him.
Reade has accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in a Senate hallway in 1993; Biden denies the allegations. In the op-ed, titled “Democrats, It’s Time to Consider a Plan B,” Elizabeth Bruenig argues: I have my own impressions regarding Ms. Reade’s allegations, but no one — save Ms. Reade and Mr. Biden — knows with certainty whether her claims are true. What I can assert with firm conviction is that Democrats ought to start considering a backup plan for 2020. Ms. Reade’s account is not nearly as incredible as some have argued. In the course of my reporting, I have worked closely with many survivors of sexual assault. It isn’t unusual, in my experience, for survivors to exhibit behavior that seems unstable or erratic to others. They may initially disclose to investigators or journalists only a fragment of what happened, and then reveal more over time — some even falsely recant, either because they sense the police don’t believe them, or because they fear the consequences of pressing their claims. And victims often maintain relationships with their attackers or harbor mixed feelings about them.…
Believing women, that oft-rehearsed exhortation, must mean taking action if it’s to mean anything. A thorough and fully transparent investigation is critical, but nothing produced by any inquiry will entirely settle the question. It is still possible — if not likely — that all of this will simply fade away, and that Mr. Biden will continue his campaign without ever submitting to a full accounting, precisely the sort of thing #MeToo was meant to prevent. But it is also possible that this won’t just go away, and that it will demoralize voters and place Mr. Biden at a disadvantage against Mr. Trump in the general election, despite the fact that Mr. Trump has a damning list of accusers alleging sexual offenses. For a candidate mainly favored for his presumed electability and the perception of empathy and decency, that’s a serious liability. To preserve the strides made on behalf of victims of sexual assault in the era of #MeToo, and to maximize their chances in November, Democrats need to begin formulating an alternative strategy for 2020 — one that does not include Mr. Biden.’”
Of course, there is a whole culture of anti-maleism based around sex crimes, as defined, but with Joe it could well be that he falls into it via even the old school definition. But, one caveat is that the Tara Reade case has not been prosecuted, but that may be because of lack of evidence. Still, unlike other cases, Reade has been saying this since the event, and has not changed her story, and there is a Breitbart article supporting her, while these guys are normally sceptical of this stuff, which I covered in my own article:
Wow, that sexy URL, it is like having alphabet soup! Apart from all that, the allegations against sleepy, or is it now creepy Joe just keep on coming, with this new one:
Meanwhile, when it suited the Left, it was “believe women,” but when it does not, it is harassment all the way:
“Tara Reade, the former Senate aide to former Vice President Joe Biden who alleges that the presumptive 2020 Democrat president nominee sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, is facing a barrage of online harassment, according to a Fox News interview with Reade on Saturday. “I find it astounding — the hypocrisy that Democrats are talking about women being able to tell their story safely,” Reade said. “I’m a Democrat, a lifelong Democrat, but yet here I am trying to talk about my history with Joe Biden and I’m just the target of online harassment.” Fox News reported on the harassment, including fake social media accounts in Reade’s name: Reade told Fox News that the home address of a family member was plastered online and that person received four “creepy” calls on Friday night, all within 30 minutes, from an unknown number. In two voice messages obtained by Fox News, a caller appeared to have posed as a journalist seeking to speak with Reade. “Hi Ms. Reade, this is Dave Johnson from the Observer, a small New York newspaper,” the voice says before laughing uncontrollably, later saying “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself” and “Trump 2020.” In the second voice message, which was the third attempt at calling Reade’s family member, the caller says: “Hey Tara, this is Dave Johnson with the Observer and I would really love, I’d really appreciate a call back so we can discuss your new powerful allegation against Vice President Biden. I think you’re setting a tone and underscoring a double standard put forth by the Me Too movement, so I’d really appreciate it if you could just call me back, give me a couple of quick questions.”
It is possible that if this keeps up, Biden will sink as a presidential candidate against Trump, who, as weak as he is, will destroy Biden in debates, that is if old Joe manages to even stay awake. As Trump tweeted: “OMG! Looks like Biden fell asleep during Crooked’s rant endorsement. He’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.” And here is a great ad by the Trump campaign attacking sleepy, if not creepy, Joe. The young girl he kisses looks mighty uncomfortable, recoiling from him, and who can blame her:
But, I hope that Joe runs. If he loses it will be fun watching him go down, and if he wins, it will then be time to test the acceleration hypothesis that everything is coming to a boil, like a boil ready to pop.
