Skip to comments.The Left Cannot Let the Access Hollywood Tape Go and They Are Wrong
Posted on 04/08/2018 5:50:57 AM PDT by Kaslin
It has been 18 months since the release of a 2005 Access Hollywood tape of a private conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush, but it seems that the Left cannot let it go. It might be because they were so convinced that the release one month before the 2016 presidential election would be the ice pick in the heart of the Trump campaign. They cannot seem to leave it only, but they remain wrong in so many ways.
Yes, the comments on the tape were lewd, coarse, inappropriate and disgusting. And the point is?There are bigger issues here.
The first is how despicable it is that someone taped a private conversation like this and kept it for over ten years. Why would they keep it other than to blackmail someone?In this case they blackmailed someone in a different manner they tried to bring down a presidential candidate. Who among us, even the most pious, would want their private conversations taped and released upon the timing choice of others?
If it is not alright for you to be treated this way than why is it alright to use in a crass political manner? Yet not one person I saw from the Left was willing to say that.Certainly, The Left wanted to use it during the campaign. Saying the release was sordid mischief would have been politically imprudent, but they have had 16 months for redemption and not taken the opportunity. As so often with the Left the ends justifies the means.
There are two even bigger points here:
What Trump said about some women throwing themselves at celebrities or rich men is sadly true. There I said it. The Left is unwilling to admit it except for in the case of Bill Clinton. There were many things Trump said, but the one that cut to the heart of the matter was this phrase And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Well maybe not anything and maybe not at your discretion, but there are too many women who encourage men of fame or fortune to have their way with them.
We all know this unless you have cut yourself off from mainstream society. Just recently the story surfaced that baseball star, Daryl Strawberry, was having sex with women in the middle of games while with the New York Mets, using dugout employees as hound dogs to hunt out women who would participate in these episodes. What would possess the women to do this is apparently quite clear. He was famous and making a large salary.
Have things changed much since women threw their underwear on stage in the 1960s at Tom Jones concerts?
A friend of mine told me that he was at a club in a private room with Prince, the recording artist. A woman was ushered in and performed oral sex on Prince and then left. What would be the cause of this other than she bragged to her friends she did what she did with Prince.
I saw this in action myself when I was the tour accountant for ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) in the summer of 1978. At the time they were the biggest band in the world and it was a huge, expensive tour. ELO certainly did not have the reputation of the Rolling Stones, but was still a Rock n Roll band. Women made themselves available to band members and the supporting act we carried on the tour. My God, for some reason they even made themselves available to me -- and I was just the tour accountant. But for a 25-year-old male, it was quite a bonus.
Our culture has spoken of this phenomena for ages. Movie stars, sports stars or rich guys have had women latching on to them not necessarily for their good looks or spectacular conversational skills or humanity. What Trump stated here was essentially true and we all know it, so what are you in a tizzy about?
What the Left does not discuss is the second and more important issue why do women behave like this and is it possible to ever change it? Certainly, in this age where Americans walk around with a falsely-inflated level of self-esteem created by a childhood of indulgence, one might think women would have moved on from this misguided behavior. On the other hand, it may never stop as some women will always be looking to use their sexuality to gain advantage over men who are instantaneously interested in sex.
One must separate the disgusting behavior of some men forcing themselves on women from the women who look to have lurid interludes with rich and/or famous men or get them into a more permanent relationship because of their fame or money.
I have not read one column addressing this issue and the need to change the culture so that women will not be interested in this (If you have please forward it to me). The #metoo movement may cut into this, but that focuses more on the women who have been abused sexually. It is not focused on addressing the issue of female self-respect.
We must acculture the females in our society to not being sexually abused and accepting it, but also to not selling themselves to men for fame, fortune or simply bragging rights. We know that will not stop for everyone, but at least we can raise the bar.
Lets make Trumps comments an anachronism.
This rings true.
Excellent and spot on! I’ve made a made a practice of countering the libtards’ “HE GRABBED THEIR XXXXXXX” morons with...”Who’s you’re all-time favorite male rock star? You do realize that there are women at every concert doing EXACTLY what Trump was talking about, right? So, will you now rant to the point of drooling about X Rock Star for doing the same?”
Of course, it’s logic and has no impact on the lib other than to make She/He/Its head explode...which is its own reward and makes me happy.
Except, Trump was not doing the same. He was pointing out the
sordid specter of women who are ready and willing for famous, wealthy men to do whatever they desire to them, like, grab their pussy.
That very same tape shows a voluptuous, young woman baring her assets with Trump. He carefully avoided any contact with her and remained a gentleman throughout the encounter.
Go away, NeverTrumper! /s
The left has no problem with crass or crude behavior towards women. They are shocked, however, that conservatives are not more upset with President Trump as a result them hammering home his less than stellar moments in the past. They really can’t understand why this Bush tape and the Stormy saga are not damaging Trump. This isn’t how it works in their playbook and they are about to pop over it. I absolutely love it! They are still trying to sell the “small hands” comment. They have nothing!
Guys talk trash. Men (and yes woman) objectify the opposite sex. Its how our earliest ancestors reproduced. It does not mean on a familial and intellectual level we are that way. But guys talk that way and worse (I cant speak for women but I hear things). But their home and work life is, in the most cases, dignified and professional. (Or at least give a good impression of it)
But the dirty 18 year old is alive in all of us and unless we become some sort of futuristic unisex eunuchs, this will continue. And it should continue but it will and should stay in the gym and at softball practice.
The left is still outraged that their #MeToo movement, which was supposed to take out Trump, has so far only managed to take out fellow leftists, including their liberal lion senator, Al Franken.
I have met a couple other seductive women over the years but managed to keep my marriage intact by avoiding such snares.
You would have to be a Democrat to think such opportunities never manifest because you need to deny human nature, utterly. Last time I looked, sexual attraction was and is part of human nature. It seems to me it's one of the really fun parts, utterly.
The Clintonites had a stable full of Mandys with which they were going to chew Ted up just before the election.
Ted wouldn't have had the stones to get the flanking squadron of Clinton abusees in place before the debate, like President Trump did.
I think he got them in place in less than 48 hours.
And they were SPECTACULAR.
Shortly after I arrived for my freshman year of college, the newly arrived women in the dorm were brought together for a lecture on how to stay safe at school. We were given the usual advice - don't drink too much, don't accept drinks from strangers, don't leave our drink unattended, be careful where we go with men we don't know, be aware of our surroundings, the usual stuff. To the best of my knowledge the freshmen men were not taken aside and told don't assault women.
I'm not saying that there aren't women like the ones Bialosky describe. But he makes it sound like they're the solely the one to blame and that's wrong.
Yes, but in '68 it was these:
Lately, its more like these:
How does the old saw go?
The young guys go to the bar wondering if they're going to get lucky tonight.
The young women go to the bar knowing who's going to get lucky tonight...
It's called "hypergamy" (women wanting males of high status) and it's likely a strong evolutionary tendency. Females of ALL species seek out the most "fit" among the males to mate with. What determines "fitness"? One fairly reliable indicator throughout history was relative status, especially if accomplished by the person's own efforts.
These scenes are repeated on smaller scale for just about any male celebrity of note. Wherever they go, they have women who will do absolutely anything for them (of a sexual nature) if given an opportunity.
How do men resist that kind of worship?
When they start throwing Depends it’s time for Tom to call’s quits.
Time to call’r quits.
@#$&’n auto correct! @#$&!
