When an Accusation’s All It Takes

Suddenly it seems everybody’s being accused of sexual harassment, tried in the newspapers, and declared guilty, all in the same day. Suddenly every man is Bill Clinton, or worse: you could be Al Franken, with a photo to prove it. Then again, you could be the Duke lacrosse team–innocent in fact, but treated as guilty.

I can relate to this. Here’s how it happened to me.

I’m in third grade. We’ve just been out for recess and have lined up to go back in. I’m standing in line, minding my own business.

Next to me the malicious little trouble-making punk, who shall remain nameless, raises his hand and tells the teacher, “Mrs. Chapman, Lee just called you a big ape.” It was completely untrue. But guess what–I got suspended from school. All it took was a simple accusation, not an iota of evidence required. Even my parents knew it wasn’t true; but the teacher and the principal didn’t care. And that suspension got carved in stone on my school record.

I can imagine how very much more serious it would have been, had the same thing happened to me as an adult in the workplace. Imagine if I were running for the Senate and the nooze media came out with, “This biggit abused his third-grade teacher!”

All right, some of the sexual misconduct allegations are true. And some of them aren’t.

And it’s very important to find out which are which.

  1. The cornerstone of digging western civilization out from the Middle Ages and its reign of ignorance was British Common Law, a man is innocent until proven guilty. So far, I’ve see one piece of evidence, and that’s photographic proof that Al Franken, although not much of a comedian, is certainly a laughable excuse for a human being.

    1. Then there’s “He harassed me 40 years ago and pay no attention to my admission that I forged his signature on my high school yearbook!”

  2. The Bolshevik left thinks they will take out Trump with all the j’accuse hysteria.
    Poor little Me-Gyn Kelly thinks she is a kingmaker kingbreaker but she is just a fading member of the enemedia.
    Her show is all j’accuse and now you know why the National Barack Channel shelled out $69 million for Me-Gyn.

  3. Doesn’t anybody realize that using the wrong pronoun is sexual harassment? We really must be more pronoun-aware.
