#MeToo Movement Is Person Of The Year, 'Time' Says
NPR ^ | December 6, 2017 | Bill Chappell

Posted on 12/06/2017 5:13:49 AM PST by Zakeet

It has created a wave of awareness and brave confrontations over sexual harassment and assault, taking down powerful men in the process. And now the #MeToo movement has been named Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2017.

On its cover, Time called the movement "The Silence Breakers." Its story features women and men who have spoken out - including activist Tarana Burke, who started the hashtag 10 years ago.

#MeToo had its start as a social media campaign in the wake of high-profile accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Of course the real winner should have been DJT. But the leftards at Time couldn’t make a reality-based decision, they decided at the start that DJT must NOT be the winner.

Colin Kaepernick has been shamed and dissed.

His wrath shall be great and abiding.

The cover should be a picture of Juanita Broaddrick.

Only in a liberal universe could “metoo” be considered “brave”.

For every woman telling her story, thanks. May each one grow in appreciation of her immense dignity as a woman and gain the strength to say never again.

Nex! Doctors who use their unique power to seduce patients need to be outed.

This is supposed to push circulation? This seems more a wish for future male bashing rather than substance. Are they trying to clear a path for Hillary to return?

Notice they only address female not male victims.

DJT didn’t want to give them exclusive access for a long interview and photo shoot.

Hmmm. Where’s Juanita? Kathleen? Paula? Ah - not enough room on the cover for Slick’s victims. Maybe it’s the first Time with a big centerfold and they’ll all be pictured on the front and back of that.

Why isn't Broaddrick, Flowers, Jones or Kathleen Willey represented as well? They actually started the movement.

...flanked by Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, and Kathy Shelton, with the scores of Bill & Hillary victims in the background.

he is TOXIC to any team, even in this pathetically left wing league that is the NFL.

He will never play again, I think.

Love football. Hate the elites and spoiled brats that dictate the NFL’s policies.
