Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, February 12, 2018

On Bill Maher's "Real Time" program, New York Times opinion writer Bari Weiss talked about how she was attacked and threatened by the #MeToo movement after she came to the defense of comedian Aziz Ansari when he was accused of sexual misconduct. During the interview, Maher blamed a certain number of 'f***ing fragile' millennials, referring to them as 'emotional hemophiliacs' that the rest of us have to be so careful around.

'The hard left is basically saying it's OK if a few innocent men go down with the ship if that's what it takes to bring down the patriarchy,' she told Maher.

'They hate zero tolerance on the right when it comes to drug policy but they love zero tolerance when it comes to sexual misconduct.'

We see this on a daily basis from the Purity Ponies on the DR, I am just surprised that Maher is giving the issue airtime.

You wouldn't if you paid attention. But it's Maher, so why would you?

Don't be disingenuous, pretty much every post by Boydstruan, Punchy and/or MaryTylerDouche fits into the "zero tolerance" of the Left category.

It's just that the post here has quite a few issues in it.

I don't really see the larger #metoo authoritarians as being on the hard left.

I see them more as spoiled children throwing a fit to get noticed.

And it's ------, because it takes away from those who really were attacked and mistreated. I'm not sure how I would view the #metoo thing if I were a woman who had been violently raped. Maybe it's just my white male privilege, but I view that act as being very different than Al Franken touching a fellow comedians ----- in an effort to be funny. Or the painfully embarrassing situation Aziz Ansari found himself in.

Who playing the #MeToo card didn't really get attacked and mistreated?

It is. Just shut up.

Maybe the woman who got Al Franken fired?

"It is. Just shut up."

Yes Ma'am.

Oh, you mean the one who wasn't really part of the #MeToo Movement, but rather an agent provocateur intent on discrediting a Senator whose politics she disagrees with?

"Reading Comprehension"

Subject matter comprehension tells a different story.
As in, the subject of posts #2, #8, #14.

He forgot to throw in "ECON 101" for the Daily Double.

Nice try at a kick save, however your use of the phrase "made another thread" shows just how lame that was.

When it comes to this issue:

'They hate zero tolerance on the right when it comes to drug policy but they love zero tolerance when it comes to sexual misconduct.' ?

Oh my,

So she's disqualified because of her political beliefs?

Maybe I was wrong and it's another "left" thing after all...

That's a fair distinction, I was admittedly casting a rather broad net with my #3, as in intolerance about, well, anything they disagree with regardless of the identity of the retorter.

When dealing with the left, this one is a freebie. It's always implied if not explicitly stated.

As a non-Econ 101 Grad, you should know this.

This is like how conservatives are/were at war with the Tea Party.

Unfortunately for conservatives, the tea party won

We got Palin and Bachman and Ryan and Trump.

So you're disqualifying the movement because of her politically-based accusations?

There's no shortage of those on the "Other Side."
ProudBoys who think white hetero Christian males are the most discriminated against group in America, for example...
Graduates from the "incel" program.

Well, once you consider-
a) she planned going public with Roger Stone, and
b) photos of the same trip show her grabbing some guy's butt, and kissing a VERY surprised GI...

--you might think twice about her motivations.

Oh, okay. I honestly didn't remember Punchy loving "zero tolerance when it comes to sexual misconduct," but I don't follow the other two that closely.

I love how big a tent "sexual misconduct" is.

Cheated on your spouse? Sexual misconduct.
Raped a child? Sexual misconduct.

Let's just call those the same thing, okay?

The difference is the ones on the other side aren't fracturing their party to the point where it keeps them out of power.
