Liberals enjoy standing on their fictitious moral high ground as defenders of all women. They err on the side of women’s accounts, no questions asked. Accused men of sexual assault are guilty until proven…well, they are just guilty. There is just one caveat to this throne the liberals sit on; it only applies to women who have been allegedly victimized by conservative or Republican men. If a Democrat was the assailant? Tough luck, the mainstream media will not only not rally around you, but they will also use their powers to bury you.
Let’s take Democratic darling Joe Biden for example. The entire Democratic party in recent months banned together to make sure former vice president Joe Biden became the party’s nominee over Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. Sexual allegations and years of whispering rumors about Biden being “creepy” were of zero interest to the party. So much so that when a very serious and detailed sexual assault account was brought forth by a former staffer, The New York Times did an “investigation” on the victim!
The New York Times devoted an entire, lengthy report on discrediting the victim. Ironically, or perhaps just moronically, in that piece they actually completely validated her. “No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of our reporting, nor did any former Biden staff corroborate Reade’s allegation,” wrote the Times. So, the standard of guilt simply relies on if there was more than one victim? Or if a specifically chosen handful of people were unaware of the incident? Don’t insult our intelligence.
It gets better. The Times added, and then removed, the following sentence: “we found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Biden, beyond hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.” Looks like sexual misconduct such as unwarranted “hugs, kisses and touching” is not really sexual misconduct for the Times.
Townhall writer and Fox News contributor eloquently stated liberals disconnect in a tweet: “I don’t know whether Ms. Reade is telling the truth, and the presumption of innocence is a vital pillar of our justice system. But this detail alone presents more contemporaneous evidence against Biden than was ever presented against Kavanaugh:” and then posted the following excerpt from the New York Times article which he was referencing. “A friend said Tara Reade told her the details of the allegation at the time, and another friend and a brother of Reade’s said she told them over the years about a traumatic sexual incident involving Biden.”

Insert mind-blown emoji here. In that very sentence, the Times essentially proves exactly what they devote the entire article to saying did not happen. As for Justice Kavanaugh, the entire liberal media, activists, feminists, and celebrities rallied behind alleged victim Christine Blasey Ford’s absolute mess of a story. Kavanaugh was dragged through the mud and back, and guess what? There were no other allegations or people to corroborate the story, or even “hugs, kisses, and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.”
Nonetheless, the Daily Wire quantifies just how bias the media is:
The Times took 19 days to report the allegations, even though the outlet immediately reported allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a Republican. CNN waited an additional five days to finally publish something about the allegations, meaning the outlet waited a whopping 24 days to cover serious allegations against a prominent politician. In contrast, CNN published nearly 700 articles about the Kavanaugh allegations in the span of 19 days between the time the allegations against Kavanaugh were made public and the Senate confirmed him.
Alleged victim Tara Reade, Biden’s former staff member has given very specific, intimate, and traumatic details about what she alleges occurred between her and Joe Biden in 1993 when she was instructed to deliver a gym back to the then-Senator of Delaware. We look forward to CNN’s 700 articles about the very serious allegations against a man who wants to be the President of the United States – but we won’t hold our breath.
