Yesterday, 140 women who work in the California Capitol building came out against illegal sexual harassment. So far, so good.
Workplace sexual harassment has been illegal for as long as I can remember, the Capitol is where the laws are actually made, and – if California politicians are as Feminist as they claim – they should have been documenting the illegal behavior and referring the male perpetrators for prosecution. So why didn’t they?
Sabrina De Mayo Lockhart, a former Capitol staff member, says it’s “part of doing business in the Capitol.” Sadly, that’s the same rationale given by actresses about “doing business in Hollywood.”
The “me too I’ve been sexually harassed” movement was started by a Hollywood actress who says she wanted to “take the focus off the predator” and shift it to the victims. Why would she suddenly do that when most of the last decade has been spent demonizing men for “rape culture”? Shouldn’t this be all about “bringing men to justice”?
Maybe it’s because Progressive women have just admitted that workplace sexual harassment in the two biggest power centers in the biggest Progressive state of the union has largely gone undocumented – even though it is completely illegal – and that the perpetrators are largely white men, and that those white men are largely Democrat.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the same 140 women demanding that sexual harassment become “documented” and not merely “illegal” are also largely Democrats who won’t use the word “illegal” to describe the illegal behavior of “undocumented immigrants.”
Forget about Harvey Weinstein. He’s done, and if there’s any justice except “social justice” in California he’ll end up in prison.
Is “illegal” finally back in fashion? I’m not betting on it. This is California.
