There’s a phrase for it: hoist on their own petard.
Mike Pence has been derided by liberals for his “open door” rule, refusing ever to meet alone with a woman other than his wife, but the wisdom of his policy is revealed every time we see a new headline about the wicked behavior of men like Harvey Weinstein, Brett Rattner, Al Franken, Glenn Thrush, Louis C.K., James Toback, Kevin Spacey, Charlie Rose, Michael Oreskes, John Lasseter, Mark Halperin, on and on and on.
There is no doubt that the Sexual Harassment Apocalypse will also destroy some Republicans — new allegations against Roy Moore seem to emerge every day — but on balance, these exposures mainly involve liberal men in politics, journalism and Hollywood. This is deeply ironic, of course, because Democrats campaigned in 2012 on the claim that there was a Republican “War on Women,” Hillary Clinton made feminist “empowerment” a major theme of her campaign in 2016, and it was only because Hillary lost that we have now entered this climate where feminists are willing to pour gasoline all over the machinery of male Democrat power, strike a match and burn it to the ground.
You can thank the 63 million Trump voters for this “empowerment.”
True. You can be damned sure that we’d never have heard a peep about any of this if they had somehow contrived to drag Sick Hillary!™ over the finish line. And that’s by far the least of many bullets we dodged because of their humiliating failure. Just one more thing to give thanks for today.
Bad people do bad things, and it is not really surprising that Harvey Weinstein is a monster.
Now these monsters are being hunted down by their former feminist “allies,” and all the power and money in the world cannot save them.
Karma is a bitch, they say. And what a deeply ironic bitch she is.
Indeed she is. Ruthless, too, and no respecter of either persons or their power status.
