Cory Booker Does Some ‘Splaining

We admit it: we’re fascinated by the hypocrisy of the left.  It’s at the same time stomach-turning and riveting, like not being able to avert one’s eyes from a deadly automobile accident that is unfolding.

Booker Lambasts Kavanaugh

Enter Cory Booker, the uber-liberal Democrat who led the charge against poor, defenseless Bret Kavanaugh.  You remember, Kavanaugh was the Supreme Court nominee (now an Associate Justice, thank the Lord) who was accused of sexual assault over thirty years ago when he was still a high school teen.  The charges were leveled without corroboration, even by the accuser’s best friend who was supposedly a witness but who then denied it (actually, nobody remembered it).  Kavanaugh was confirmed, but not until the left went ballistic, screaming and protesting (still) that an accuser must be believed without evidence of any kind.  Cory “I’m Spartacus” Booker led the merciless onslaught.

 

Now, ironically, Booker himself is being accused of recently sexually assaulting another man in a restroom.

He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans, and began to rub…He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently…

…anonymous Booker accuser

Booker guilty
Booker ‘splaining

But the reaction from the left is a little—shall we say—different this time.  The national broadcast media—we all know how they roll—are not pushing the story like they immediately did with Kavanaugh.  Nor are the Dems angrily and self righteously demanding Booker’s removal from office.  No, now that it’s one of them, they are painting it as a smear without merit of any sort.  And if this isn’t paradox enough for you, CNN actually defended him regarding a separate incident of sexual assault perpetrated by Booker when he was fifteen.  Of course, when those excuses were (rightly, in our view) made by Kavanaugh supporters they were vilified.  Now they are righteous when used to defend crazy Cory Booker.

For our part, we give no greater credence at this point to Booker’s uncorroborated bathroom accuser as we did to Kavanaugh’s.  The irony is in the left’s hypocrisy in outrage over the accusations against Kavanaugh, and then defending their own when basically the same type of accusations are leveled.

 

The most amazing thing is, in the face of this continuing hypocrisy and dishonesty on the left, everyone is expecting a blue wave on election day in two weeks.  Go figure!

God save us.

We’re BAAAaaack with a Revengence

HardWired News Takes a Look at the Future

You remember we took a hiatus last October to come up for air.  The lunacy of the liberal left made us more than a little apoplectic, so like a whipped puppy we retreated under the bed for a while.  And while we won’t resume regular weekly articles, look for the occasional piece that strikes our fancy now and again.

Crystal Ball HWNThe reason for our return now was an amazing advance in technology that could not be ignored.  Through the efforts of renowned scientists laboring as an interactive team around the globe and using the latest advances in quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and nano-engineering, it is now possible to divine how things will be in the future.  Fortunately, HardWired News has gained exclusive rights to the technology and has been able to access the front page of The New York Times, the September 17, 2518 edition.  Here are a few headlines 500 years from now:

Monday Potpourri – Liberal Hypocrisy

 

As we’ve done in the past, we’ll take a moment on this Monday to comment from a HardWired News perspective on weekend developments that didn’t receive much coverage

Comedian George Lopez Booed; Contributes to Racism

Lopez
Racism Purveyor

Hispanic comedian George Lopez was booed from an event he was supposed to be moderating in Denver over the weekend for his continued Trump-bashing jokes and anti-white comments.  He referred to people in the audience disparagingly as a bunch of “old white men,” and ranted about white privilege.

When minorities seek justice by bashing whites, they are guilty of the same racist philosophies as those who insult them.  Racism is, of course, the practice of attributing faults to an entire group of people based on their ancestry.  It’s wrong when white people practice it against blacks, Hispanics, and others.  But when turnaround is used by minorities, it simply justifies and ratifies the process, thereby contributing to the spiral of racial divide.  And the frenzied Trump-bashing by Lopez and his buddies on the left is so over the top, rational people begin to simply dismiss it out of hand rather than seriously consider the arguments of those who oppose Trump.

I can tell you from experience as a white man in America that there are others of my background and ethnicity who are racist (I am not).  But for every one that is, there are many, many more who are fair-minded and sympathetic to the concerns of minorities.  Behavior such as Lopez displayed turns these people off, and gives permission to the racists for their behavior.

So score one for the racists thanks to George Lopez.  Not to mention empowering the Trump supporters.  Thanks, George

Weinstein Brings Out the Worst in the Left

Harvey Weinstein, as everyone knows by now, is the uber-liberal Hollywood mogul recently called out for sexual aggression toward and exploitation of young Hollywoodweinstein-nyt1.jpg women.  The fawning left initially—for decades, actually—looked the other way, although his actions have become so notorious everyone is piling on (rightly so, in my view).  He has no cover.  But now the left is growing bizarre in their quest to draw-and-

Bialik
Bialik: Victim of Leftist Hypocrisy

quarter him.  An actress, Mayim Bialik of Big Bang TV fame, wrote that she condemned Weinstein, sympathized with his victims, and recounted how she has had to deflect unwanted sexual advances in Tinsel Town by making it clear she would not tolerate them.  Instead of praising her, the left attacked her for “implying” the victims had done something wrong by not emulating Bialik.  She, of course, said no such thing, but that did not calm the attacks.  As these things always seem to work out, she has now apologized to the left, for doing absolutely nothing wrong!  You can’t make this stuff up.

 

Those Who Profess Wanting to Save People from Gun Violence Threaten Others with Death

Loesch: Threatened with Shooting by Anti-gun Activists

You heard me.  Anti-gun advocates are turning on NRA female spokesperson Dana Loesch and sending her death threats.  In the interest of stopping gun violence, these nuts are saying they will shoot her and “rape her to death.”  She points out, correctly in my mind, many of her detractors are also the ones condemning Weinstein for his abuse of women (see any irony here?) and “the left believes only non-conservative women deserve respect.”  The left could not show greater hypocrisy.

Weinstein Sex Escapades Spotlight Liberal Hypocrisy

harvey-weinstein-5.jpgIf you don’t know who Harvey Weinstein is by now, you’ve been living under a rock.  Born to a New York Jewish family, he made his mark as a Hollywood producer of films that roll off the tongue: Pulp Fiction, Gangs of New York, Chicago, Fahrenheit 9/11, Rambo, The King’s Speech.  I’d name more, but we’d run out of space.  A power-player fixture on the Hollywood social scene, he’s been generously awarded by the Tinsel Town elite and is a (in)famously connected liberal gadfly and supporter of the likes of Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, and a host of left-wing causes.

But you know him for his recent transgressions.  He’s finally—after decades of these misdeeds—been called-out for the sexual exploitation of vulnerable young Hollywood women, sometimes in the most deviant of ways.  And now he’s been forced to resign.  I won’t go into the sordid details (youWeinstein NYT can read or hear about them through any news outlet), but as a father of five daughters and a reinforced platoon of grand- and great-granddaughters, I am personally outraged.  I’m no prude, and I rarely condemn liaisons between consenting adults roughly equal in power and position, but his actions are a violation of decency toward women in the extreme.

Baldwin as Trump SNL
SNL Trump Parody

But our outrage is only enhanced by the hypocrisy of the left.  Saturday Night Live (SNL), the faux-comedy late-night TV show that is essentially a propaganda arm of the left, happily lampoons the foibles of the likes of Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, George Bush and a host of others from the right, but has remained pointedly silent on Weinstein.  It was reported that a few of their writers developed skits or jokes related to Weinstein’s now well-publicized problems, but they were killed.  SNL’s only explanation was that “it’s a New York thing,” apparently acknowledging that the problems of a prominent Jewish community member New Yorker who has made it big in uber-liberal Hollywood are off limits.

The left, of course, is famous for pontificating on what they see as moral causes: women’s rights, abortion, gun control.  But when one of theirs is the offender, they conveniently look the other way.  Remember Bill Clinton’s well-documented sexual exploitation of LewinskyMonica Lewinsky, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and a host of others.  He confessed to perjury on national TV, was impeached, barred from legal practice, and subject to court settlements for his activities.  But NOW, the National Organization of (liberal?) Women, sprang to his defense, and he remains the poster-child of Democrats and their liberal causes.  SNL is continuing that fine tradition of liberal hypocrisy in turning a blind eye to Weinstein.

Front Cover JPEG - Pestilence_edited-1Liberals love to paint conservatives wrongly as greedy, hateful exploiters.  In fact, we are in the main people who believe limited government, personal freedom, free enterprise and individual accountability along with its rewards and consequences will do the most to advance the American dream for everyone.  Some of the most generous and compassionate people I know are conservatives.  As my novel, Caine’s Pestilence fictionally explored, all too often those invested in the industry of liberalism are driven by the quest for money, power, prestige, and privilege, with their heartrending “causes” only a means to a more cynical end.

In fairness, some of the liberal elite can no longer ignore what Weinstein hasSteve Correll done.  The New York Times broke the story.  Then to her credit, actress Meryl Streep has belatedly condemned his actions and even poor CNN has been forced to report on them.  Saturday Night Live, however, continues the fine liberal tradition of hypocrisy and selective outrage.  Let’s see how the rest of the liberal establishment reacts.
