Oh, Look! It’s Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib of “The Squad” Telling People They Should be Deported

Remember when we were told it was racist and xenophobic to suggest people should go back to where they came from? Remember when the media was rending its garments and gnashing its teeth over chants of “send her back” at Trump rallies and tweets from the president about “The Squad” fixing the problems in their countries of origin?

Well, it would appear that “The Squad’s” outrage is highly selective, especially when it comes to them telling people they should be deported.

Internet detectives have reached back over the years and found times when the likes of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is central to the controversy, was telling people to do the same thing she is outraged with Trump for supposedly doing.

Here is Rep. Rashida Tlaib doing the same to Trump.

The running narrative right now is that Trump is a giant racist because of a set of tweets that encouraged the women of “The Squad” to back to their countries of origin and fix the problems that are plaguing those countries. Problems that “The Squad” claims are infesting the United States. He then encouraged them to come back after they’ve done this and show us in the United States how to do it.

The left typically leaves that last part out, mostly because that overlooked message in the tweets ruins the narrative. In truth, the tweets weren’t racist, as I explain here.

The other claim is that Trump is racist because his supporters chanted “send her back” in relation to Omar. Even so, Trump said he disagreed with the chant.

Thing is, even Trump’s tweets didn’t measure out to the tweets actually sent by Omar and Tlaib. Both of these ladies suggested that the people they were targeting be deported. Trump was suggesting they leave then come back.

If Trump is to be considered racist, then Omar and Tlaib must as well. If we’re playing by the left’s rules, what Omar and Tlaib did was far worse.

Dems wonder: What the hell is Steyer thinking?

Westlake Legal Group steyer Dems wonder: What the hell is Steyer thinking? Tom Steyer The Blog populism impeachment democrats 2020 Democrat primaries

We all know what Tom Steyer thinks — that he can buy the Democratic presidential nomination with a nine-figure investment in the primaries. What’s less clear is why the multibillionaire wants to try it. And now Democrats are becoming more vocal in telling Steyer to butt out, according to Politico, including a reminder of Steyer’s lack of, er, diversity:

“It’s very difficult for me to see the path for Tom Steyer to be a credible candidate,” said Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), who has endorsed Pete Buttigieg. “So yes, I would rather that he spend his money taking back the Virginia House, the Virginia Senate and supporting people who can win.”

“I wish he wouldn’t do it. Especially at this late date,” added Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), who has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden. “Things are set except for those who are going to drop out.”

Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio observed that Steyer is basically “another white guy in the race,” albeit a wealthy one who is “a major progressive player.” Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia was mostly perplexed by the wealthy Californian’s entry when asked about it: “I kind of wonder why?”

The most remarkable aspect of this Politico report are the names that are going on the record. Sherrod Brown telling reporters that Steyer’s too pale for Democrats is chef’s-kiss perfection for this cycle, I suppose. Keep in mind that these are the same people who were figuratively planting their lips on Steyer’s backside until recently, hoping to get him to fund the Democrats’ general-election fight.

One explanation for the pushback is that Steyer is currently using his largesse to attack incumbents — Democratic incumbents. He’s still sore that the House hasn’t advanced impeachment, and he’s taking aim at some big names:

“Do I think he’s wasting his money on [impeachment] ads against me? Yes,” said Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.), who has not endorsed a presidential candidate and declined to comment on his presidential run.

Steyer has already used his multimillion-dollar impeachment campaign to target prominent House Democrats, including Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York and Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland. And he’s floated the idea of turning his financial firepower on Democratic leadership, including Pelosi.

Steyer issued a blunt statement directed at the speaker last week after Democrats voted to kill an effort to immediately launch impeachment proceedings against Trump. Then he dinged Congress on Monday for “going on vacation for six weeks,” calling on Pelosi to cancel the House’s August recess.

No wonder Steyer plans on spending $100 million on the primaries, assuming he gets very far. He won’t have any other allies to pay some of the bills. At the same time, though, don’t forget that Steyer plans to focus on a campaign message of [checks notes, spit-takes] getting money out of politics:

By running for the Democratic nomination, Steyer is both a “corporation” and a special interest — his own. Nothing says “let’s get the influence of money out of politics” like buying a major-party nomination, I tell ya.

It won’t work, though, because Steyer’s now burning the bridges over impeachment that he painstakingly built with climate change over the last several years. When Steyer realizes this, will he decide to put his money into going the Ross Perot route? If he’s looking to burn down the Democratic Party over his spite about impeachment, he could hardly choose a more effective method.

Ethics Complaints Of Fraud and Perjury Are Finally Filed Against Ilhan Omar

Westlake Legal Group ilhan-omar-pensive-620x317 Ethics Complaints Of Fraud and Perjury Are Finally Filed Against Ilhan Omar Tom Fitton Scott Johnson republicans Preya Samsundar Powerline Politics Minnesota judicial watch Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats daniel steinberg Allow Media Exception

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., listens as Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russell Vought testifies before the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 12, 2019, during a hearing on the fiscal year 2020 budget. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

The hard work done by Scott Johnson of PowerLineBlog and Daniel Steinberg of our sister site, PJMedia, and Preya Samsundar, who now runs communications for the GOP in Minnesota and Iowa may finally be bearing fruit.

Thanks to their reporting, ethics charges have been filed with the House Ethics Committee.

These are some of the highlights:

he evidence developed against Rep. Omar was the result of a three-year-long investigation in both the United States and the United Kingdom by Mr. Steinberg and his investigative reporter colleagues Preya Samsundar and Scott Johnson. It is supported by information gathered from public records, social media postings, genealogy databases, computer forensic analysis, unaltered digital photographs, discussions between the investigative reporters and the subjects of the investigation themselves, and information supplied by confidential sources within the Somali-American community.

Documented-based reporting by Steinberg, et al. has developed the following information: Rep. Ilhan Abdullahi Omar, a citizen of the United States, married her biological brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a citizen of the United Kingdom, in 2009, presumably as part of an immigration fraud scheme. The couple legally divorced in 2017. In the course of that divorce, Ms. Omar submitted an “Application for an Order for Service by Alternate Means” to the State of Minnesota on August 2, 2017 and claimed, among other things, that she had had no contact with Ahmed Nur Said Elmi after June 2011. She also claimed that she did know where to find him. The evidence developed by Mr. Steinberg and his colleagues demonstrates with a high degree of certainty that Ms. Omar not only had contact with Mr. Elmi, but actually met up with him in London in 2015, which is supported by photographic evidence. Ms. Omar signed the “Application for an Order for Service by Alternate Means” under penalty of perjury. The very document that Ilham Omar signed on August 2, 2017 bears the following notation directly above her signature: “I declare under penalty of perjury that everything I have stated in this document is true and correct. Minn. Stat. § 358.116.”

Of particular importance are archived photographs taken during a widely reported trip by Ilhan Omar to London in 2015, posted to her own Instagram account under her nickname “hameey”, in which she poses with her husband/presumed brother, Ahmed Elmi. These photographs from 2015 are documentary evidence that in fact she met up with Mr. Elmi after June 2011 and before the date she signed the divorce document in August 2017, thereby calling into question the veracity of her claim that she had not seen Mr. Elmi since June 2011.

Rep. Omar’s potential crimes far exceed perjurious statements made in a Minnesota court filing.

Rep. Omar’s conduct may include immigration fraud. It appears that Rep. Omar married her brother in order to assist his emigration to the United Stated from the United Kingdom. The same immigration fraud scheme may have aided Mr. Elmi in obtaining federally-backed student loans for his attendance at North Dakota State University. Mr. Elmi and Rep. Omar simultaneously attended North Dakota State University and may have derived illicit benefits predicated on the immigration fraud scheme.

The State of Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board has already determined that Rep. Omar violated state campaign finance laws for improper use of campaign funds. She was forced to reimburse her campaign thousands of dollars. More significantly, the Board discovered that the federal tax returns submitted by Rep. Omar for 2014 and 2015 were filed as “joint” tax returns with a man who was not her husband, named Ahmed Hirsi, while she was actually married to Ahmed Elmi.

As a footnote, it is great to see that the reporting referenced in the ethics complaint is that by the people who broke the story and kept it alive and not the shameless near-plagiarism by a dilettante who tried to scab credit for the story without providing a whit of attribution.

Minnesota state representative Steve Drazkowski, whose complaint to the Minnesota State Campaign Finance Board led to Ilhan Omar’s fraudulent tax returns being discovered, has also filed a complaint.

What happens here? Probably not very much in the short run. The Ethics Committee is evenly divided and to do anything someone has to break party ranks. The only way that happens with the Democrats is if Nancy Pelosi tells them to do so. Otherwise, they are going to close ranks and protect a Democrat member. Based on past history, though, often a House Ethics Committee complaint serves as the proximate cause of a federal investigation.

As Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton points out, there is ample evidence of fraud and perjurious statements to warrant a Justice Department probe. If Omar were a white male, the grand jury would already be seated.

Rashida Tlaib compares anti-Israel boycott movement with boycotts of Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa

Westlake Legal Group rt-2 Rashida Tlaib compares anti-Israel boycott movement with boycotts of Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa tlaib The Blog schneider Sanctions resolution republicans pelosi omar ocasio-cortez House divest democrats boycott bds

Via the Free Beacon, this is why Pelosi agreed to let the BDS resolution come to the floor in the first place, right? Normally Speakers don’t greenlight legislation, especially meaningless legislation like “sense of the House” resolutions, when they’re apt to cause tensions within their own caucus about sensitive political subjects.

But I think Ringo here and the other three members of the Squad left her no choice. Trump has already attacked them repeatedly for being anti-Israel, a deliberate attempt to make them the face of the Democratic Party on that and other issues. Pelosi is desperate for ways to counter that message. Solution: Give centrist Dems an opportunity to show their support for Israel by voting for a resolution condemning BDS. And hope that not too many progressives go the other way, creating unhappy headlines.

So it was thoughtful of Rashida Tlaib to hand this soundbite to Trump’s presidential campaign knowing that today’s big vote is destined to not go his way. Also, say what you want about her but she’s very much in sync with her district. The latest news out of Dearborn:

A franchisee has delayed the scheduled opening of his Burgerim restaurant in Dearborn amid backlash from the Arab-American community over the popular burger company’s Israeli roots.

Sam Zahr, a Lebanese-American who lives in Dearborn, said he was too worried to open the restaurant on Greenfield Road after his kids were bullied and he received threatening messages from those opposed to the burger chain founded in Israel

“I told you, you are not like us,” someone wrote in a Facebook message to Zahr. “You have Palestinian and Lebanese blood on your hand if you open up that joint.”

In another incident, he set up a tent with free burgers outside the soon-to-open Royal Oak store for Ramadan, a Muslim holiday in April, but he said the tent was destroyed the next morning.

Zahr has opened Burgerim franchises in other cities in Michigan. Only in Dearborn has he encountered a problem. And before you ask, no, of course Tlaib won’t be pressed on whether her repulsive Nazi analogies are contributing to a “climate of hate” that’s made it unsafe for Jews and Israel-linked business to operate in her backyard. “Climate of hate” hand-wringing runs one way only.

I encourage you to read the text of the House resolution, just to see for yourself how toothless it is relative to Tlaib’s absurd alarmism in the clip. “Our right to free speech is being threatened with this resolution,” she warns. “It sets a dangerous precedent because it attempts to delegitimize a certain people’s political speech and to send a message that our government can and will take action against speech it doesn’t like.” It does no such thing, as Philip Klein recently noted. The strongest “action” it takes is to declare that the House “opposes the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS Movement) targeting Israel, including efforts to target United States companies that are engaged in commercial activities that are legal under United States law, and all efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel.” There’s no penalty for supporting BDS. Again, the whole reason they’re voting on this in the first place is that the anti-Israel cranks in Pelosi’s caucus can’t and won’t be silenced, leaving pro-Israel Dems with no choice but to try to drown them out. But the Squad’s brand of populist progressivism (maybe any populism, really?) requires an endless cycle of victimization and defiance to propel itself, so Tlaib has to trump up a phony grievance that her right to free speech is being threatened because the House happens to think that her politics on this issue are demagogic Jew-baiting garbage.

After PD Announces No Charges Will Be Filed, Erica Thomas’s Attorneys Shift to Accused’s Alleged Criminal History

Westlake Legal Group EricaThomasEricSparkes-620x345 After PD Announces No Charges Will Be Filed, Erica Thomas’s Attorneys Shift to Accused’s Alleged Criminal History Social Media racism Politics North Carolina Media Georgia Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture crime Allow Media Exception

Ga. State Rep. Erica Thomas (D) and Georgia resident Eric Sparkes (D). Screen grab via WSB-TV.

The Cobb County Police issued a statement earlier today in the case involving allegations made by a Ga. Democratic state legislator of “racism” and “verbal battery” against a Cuban Democrat Publix customer.

The AJC reports:

The Cobb County Police Department said Tuesday that no charges will be filed in a confrontation at a grocery store between a black state legislator and a man she accused of demanding that she “go back” to where she came from.

The department said in a statement that after an investigation state Rep. Erica Thomas and Eric Sparkes were both told to contact the county’s magistrate system if they want to pursue lesser charges.

[…]

[Thomas] also said she had the witnesses to prove it, though one who spoke to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said he didn’t hear Sparkes use that phrase [“go back to where you came from”].

Thomas’s attorneys say in spite of the announcement that this case is not over:

Thomas’ attorney, Gerald Griggs, said Tuesday he hopes the department, which was investigating potential simple battery charges, conducted a “robust investigation” into Sparkes’ background. He said he plans to ask the magistrate court to investigate.

“Rep. Thomas wants the world to know that she’s standing up for the rights of women who have been victimized,” said Griggs, who said he hasn’t seen a Publix videotape of the confrontation yet.

That’s interesting, because during a press conference Griggs held Monday, he insinuated that he had seen the tapes and said they corroborate Thomas’s story.

I should note for the record that it seems Thomas’s attorneys and supporters are shifting gears from this being about racism to instead being about a “woman who was verbally attacked.” While it’s still not a flattering allegation and deserves a full investigation, it’s quite the climb-down from saying Sparkes used racist “Trump language” on her during a dispute about her using an express checkout lane:

Griggs also retweeted this tweet from Carter Media Group founder Dontaye Carter alleging that Sparkes has an extensive criminal background:

While it’s not clear if Carter is representing the PR interests of Griggs and Thomas, he made it clear in several tweet responses to his postings about Sparkes that “this case is about protecting women”, not race. So it sounds like a narrative shift is underway.

Sparkes issued a statement on Monday saying he is considering filing a defamation lawsuit against Thomas. In spite of the narrative shifting, I’m pretty sure he’s not going to forget that she, her attorneys, and her supporters very much made this about race in the beginning, and turned it into a national story.

The Taming of the Shrew(s)

Westlake Legal Group Squad-Presser The Taming of the Shrew(s) Uncategorized republicans Politics Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

CBS News

The Taming of the Shrew(s)

Peggy Ryan over at American Thinker has penned a great piece on President Trump’s tweets regarding Representative Omar and the rest of her ineptly named “squad.” Ms. Ryan aptly compares the the four to a shrewish wife (my license) always nagging and complaining. She also prescribes a remedy—a remedy remarkably similar to the President’s tweets on the matter. From the article.

Imagine you’re living with a significant other who despises you and informs you hourly how much.  How you chew your food, how you comb your hair, the shows you watch, your crappy friends.  Your ugly, broken down house sucks — too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter, a sickly color.  This significant other would be better off living on the streets than this dump.  So how do you handle it?

The squad is our significant other.  They insult us, tear America down, berate us for being too white, too rich, too pro-Israel, too nationalist, and the list goes on.  They openly attack our friend, our greatest ally, Israel; spout anti-Semitic garbage; and pal around with terrorist groups who also hate Israel.

Like that constantly harping harridan, maybe it would be best if they left. If all they have is complaints and insults, perhaps they might be happier elsewhere.

Ryan goes on to point out the real issue at stake here and it’s not a few tweets by POTUS. It’s the ongoing leftist press (I know, redundant) and their partners the Democrats, efforts to separate the President from his supporters. Here’s the money quote

The government-media will continue to demand that the president stop these chants because they want to diffuse Trump rallies, blunt the energy, and separate President Trump from his supporters.  Stopping the chants would go a long way toward suppressing the energy, the passion. 

Ms. Ryan left out one critical set of bad actors, RINO never-Trumpers who immediately piled on with the Democrats and the press. Otherwise, she is spot on and she has a great way with words. You really should take the time to look the article over, especially the embedded video.

AOC Is Accusing Border Patrol of Purposely Detaining a U.S. Citizen, Here’s the Real Story

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-2-4-620x317 AOC Is Accusing Border Patrol of Purposely Detaining a U.S. Citizen, Here’s the Real Story U.S. Citizen the washington post Politics illegal immigrant Gross Front Page Stories Front Page Fraud Featured Story Fake Name Disgusting detention democrats CBP AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’s already gotten one person killed with her false, insane rantings about concentration camps on the border, has made it her mission as a Congressional member to constantly slander the Border Patrol. Never mind that they are doing an incredibly difficult job with limited resources. Better to just accuse them of being Nazis while simultaneously refusing to give them the funding they need. Makes sense.

Here’s the latest outrage, which comes courtesy of a retweet of “Collusion” Ken Dilanian, who has a long history of taking his marching orders directly from Fusion GPS.

As usual, this sounds really bad but resembles very little of the actual truth.

Oddly enough, it was The Washington Post that managed to get to the bottom of what happened.

The reason it appears to have taken CBP and ICE so long to determine Galicia’s citizenship is because his mother, who is not a citizen, took out a U.S. tourist visa in his name while he was still a minor, falsely saying he was born in Mexico, [Claudia Galan, his attorney] said. His mother, Sanjuana, told The Post that CBP discovered the visa after fingerprinting her son. The conflicting documents only fueled the agency’s suspicion that Galicia’s U.S. documents were fake, Galan said.

This is a story that’s probably not unique. The mother, having a child that was a legal U.S. citizen, used that child’s name to fraudulently apply for a visa while marking him as being born in Mexico. This was supposedly done so that the son could travel back and forth to Mexico. But why couldn’t the son just get a U.S. Passport if he was a U.S. citizen? Well, that would be because the mother didn’t even use her real name on his birth certificate.

The undocumented mother was unable to get him a U.S. passport because when Galicia was born, Galan said, she gave a different name for herself on his birth certificate. (The birth certificate and other identifying documents were reviewed by The Post.)

All of this has rightly led CBP to suspect Galicia’s documents are fake. His mother and her attorney are trying to secure his release by presenting other documentation but it will take time to verify everything.

In the end, this is not the fault of CBP or the U.S. government. This is the fault of a mother who crossed the border illegally to give birth and then lied on his birth certificate. Showing even more contempt for the rule of law, she compounded her past fraud by applying for a U.S. visa under false pretenses. Meanwhile, CBP are left to sort through this mess, knowing that people lie about this kind of thing all the time.

Illegal immigrants are not bystanders in their ordeals. They hold responsibility for their actions. It’s completely unfair and disgusting to attack law enforcement for simply doing their jobs.

Beto on Trump Rally: It Was Like An ‘Impromptu Nuremberg Rally’

Westlake Legal Group gs-beto-orourke-620x413 Beto on Trump Rally: It Was Like An ‘Impromptu Nuremberg Rally’ Trump Nuremberg immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats beto 2020

Beto O’Rourke by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

In case you forgot, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is still around and running for president.

O’Rourke’s star first rose thanks to the help of Hollywood stars who were so desperate to oust Cruz in Texas that they artificially inflated the value of a newbie politician and gave him a superhero makeover like only Tinseltown can do. Unfortunately no one explained to the pickup-truck-posing politico that in Hollywood guys like him only get fifteen minutes of fame.

As the clock tick’s on O’Rourke’s campaign, he’s working on the Democrat 2020 Presidential Candidate checklist line-by-line, crossing all the Ts and live streaming all the dental appointments.

  • Open borders – check
  • Condemn Trump – check
  • Immigrants, immigrants, immigrants – check
  • Chick-Fil-A rage – check
  • Gun control – check
  • Trump is a racist – check, check, check, check’

In the latest attempt to fulfill the checklist, “Beto” spoke about the now infamous Trump rally in North Carolina where some audience members began chanting “Send her back” when Trump made a reference to Ilhan Omar. But what’s an average white guy supposed to do when everyone has already used up all the good Nazi references?

Dig deeper, naturally…and dig he did. O’Rourke doubled down on the Nazi talk by suggesting in an ABC interview that the North Carolina rally looked more like “an impromptu Nuremberg rally”.

“What we saw in North Carolina last week was almost an impromptu Nuremberg rally, inciting hatred and ultimately, implicit violence against people of color, people. Based on their religion and based on their difference from the majority. And it is in keeping with the president who describes Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals, who describes asylum seekers as animals and an infestation. The man who calls Klansman very fine people. It very clear the path he is taking us on.”

Nazi reference – check

‘Trump called Mexicans rapists and criminals’ lie – check

‘Very fine people lie’ – checkorama!

There’s nowhere left to go for Beto. He’s been out-everymanned by Buttegieg and even his Hollywood friends have publicly recognized that their excitement for him was largely based in a desire to punish a red state. There are too many other candidates on the Democrat roster with a better “virtue” rating. How can a Hollywooder endorse the white guy who lost to Ted Cruz when they can choose a woman, hispanic man, woman of color, Black man, gay man…it’s a list too juicy for a liberal celebrity type to pass up.

Senator Josh Hawley Has An Amazing Ally In Shooting Down Those Nonsense Charges Of Anti-Semitism

Westlake Legal Group josh-hawley-1-620x317 Senator Josh Hawley Has An Amazing Ally In Shooting Down Those Nonsense Charges Of Anti-Semitism republicans Politics nationalism Missouri Josh Hawley Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats anti-semitism Allow Media Exception

FILE – In this Sept. 27, 2018 file photo, Missouri Attorney General and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Josh Hawley speaks to supporters during a campaign stop in St. Charles, Mo. Missouri’s Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill is making a bid for a third term in a state that’s trended increasingly red in recent years, setting up a nationally watched showdown that could be pivotal to party control of the Senate. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File)

Last week, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley spoke at the National Conservatism Conference. The target of his speech was the social/economic class that has made a fetish out of globalism and which sees nationalism and patriotism as something to be stomped out.

What particularly drew the ire of his critics was the use of the word “cosmopolitan” which is, as we’re told, a “dog whistle” for “Jews.”

As I pointed out in my post, Josh Hawley Is Accused Of Anti-Semitism Because The Left Can Hear Dog Whistles, the only political party that has an anti-Semitism problem is the Democrats who have embraced the nuttiness of AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar and the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement, and you’re the only one hearing the dog whistle, it sorta means that you’re the dog.

Now Hawley has responded with an unusual person endorsing his critique.

This video shows President Barack Obama decrying a “cosmopolitan” and “rootless” class that places financial interests above the national good. The number of people claiming he was referring to Jews was about zero. There is a good reason for that. He wasn’t and, obviously, neither was Hawley.

What the attack on Hawley shows is that there is a ready-made army of left wing pseudo-intellectuals who stand ready to manufacture charges of anti-Semitism and racism at the drop of a hat. They probably don’t actually believe what they are saying…in fact, one hopes they are guffawing and drinking good bourbon as they write otherwise one would consider them to be garden variety sociopaths…but they know it is important to accuse anyone on the right who is moving the ball down the field of some “-ism” in order to dirty them up a bit.

On Monday, New Yorker Magazine published a piece aimed at rehabilitating the reputation of disgraced former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who resigned in early 2018 after 8 different women accused him of sexual misconduct or inappropriate touching.

The piece has been widely criticized because of, among other things, what some called the “slut-shaming” nature of how Franken’s first accuser, conservative Leeann Tweeden, was characterized by author Jane Mayer.

Not only that, but Mayer’s seeming newfound respect for due process less than a year after she desperately tried to get an early 1980s Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s to “remember” he allegedly committed a sexual assault against her didn’t go over well with people who remembered the thinly-sourced hit piece.

Nevertheless, Mayer is still persisting on Franken’s supposed innocence, which inspired unhinged left-wing actress Better Midler to weigh in with her own scorching hot takes on both Mayer’s article and Tweeden:

Twitter users let her have it:

Midler of all people should know better than to go the “she asked for it/slut-shaming” route. In December 2017, the same month Franken was battling allegations he had touched women sexually without their consent, Midler stepped forth with her own story about an alleged groping incident in the 1970s involving Geraldo Rivera.

In turn, Rivera said he remembered the incident differently but still apologized to Midler.

I wonder how Midler would have felt if someone posted provocative pictures of her from that time period to insinuate that she either deserved it or her story couldn’t possibly be true?
