Democrats, this is your chance.
For once, this raging cascade of sexual misconduct could actually be a way for the so-called “party of women” to actually be worthy of the nickname. As the drip, drip, drip continues, everyone is waiting to see if the loud-mouthing, over-salivating, GOP-hating wing of Andrew Jackson’s political party will own up to its past sins and transcend its natural tendencies.
Matt Lauer is the latest pillar to fall, and it looks as though there will be more. So the question remains, how will the Democrats address not just each individual instance of exposed sexual deviants from its proud banner-carriers, but the root of the problem.
Many will suggest that this is not just a Democratic issue to address, but it is more-so than one for Conservative Republicans to answer for.
The strict moral code that conservatives and Republicans stand on, ones such as the ones Mike Pence is routinely made fun of for, exists for a reason. Conservatives and traditionalists alike understand, and have always understood, that man – specifically, men – are fallible.
Hence, by way of religion and community, immovable moral fences were constructed to limit men’s instinctive sexual predation. Marriage, frequently viewed as a tool of oppression by feminists, is actually in place to protect women. By ensuring that men are required to fully commit to a woman before he can have sex with her, the woman is protected from a situation where she becomes pregnant and is left alone with few resources. Honoring and nurturing a marriage is necessary to bring out the best in both parties and their families.
In other words, Republicans own it. When someone crosses the line, the GOP calls fouls. The best example of this is Roy Moore, who many believe should withdraw his bid for a Senate seat, including many Repubicans.
Democrats, on the other hand, have a history of covering up for their own. While they preach liberal sexuality and progressive culture, they try to hide the consequences of it. The fact is, when liberal feminists are preaching about sexual liberty and open relationships, men will be more prone to believe that there are fewer barriers. When men are taught that the “empowered woman” has a libido as fierce as any man’s, his pursuit of sex will not recognize as many obstacles. The result is sexual assault.
Men who commit sexual misconduct are reprehensible, unforgiveable and entirely responsible for their actions. However, the eroded culture in which they are now being educated chiefly by liberal professors and overzealous demonstrators promulgate their misbehavior and thrust them into a place where they have the power to indulge their worst temptations.
Democrat own the sexual harassment problem because of the depraved culture they’ve created.
Now, and only now, they have a chance to turn away and get all the credit for it. American would be better for it if they did. Now that all of this is coming out, now that they’ve turned their backs on Bill Clinton, they have a chance to absolve themselves of future culpability.
All they have to do is reject liberal sexuality and come back to basic morality. Encourage people to only have sex with reliable, committed partners. Encourage women to find lasting and healthy relationships with a single person rather than indulge in promiscuity. Reinforce the fact that men need to teach their sons to respect women’s differences and to be gentlemen, not see them as “the same.” Finally, encourage young people to make responsible decisions in all aspects of life rather than act according to shallow, temporary feelings.
Democrats, now is your chance to stand up for morality so that sexual misconduct can cease to be a political issue. It can be a human issue, one we all face and condemn together, and we will then see a profound change for the better.
