They swept it under the rug for years. When it finally came out via a blockbuster New York Times expose, they tried to ignore it. When that didn’t work, liberals are doing the next best thing …
Trying to somehow, some way link the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal to Republicans and, who else, President Trump.
To highlight their ‘logic,’ or lack thereof, the “hottest” Weinstein take yet comes from a USC journalism major writing for the Daily Trojan, who gives the whole thing the old ‘college try.’
The title says it all – A powerful liberal Hollywood mogul’s harassment and assault of multiple women who all apparently kept silent about it out of either hope for career success or fear of retribution is somehow the fault of Republicans and their nonexistent “war on women.”
And President Trump, because he engaged in crude locker room talk a decade ago.
Kylie Cheung explains:
For years, that social and political disenfranchisement has been propagated by the party that unapologetically handed Trump the presidency, where, at the very least, Democratic stars and politicians have come out in droves to unequivocally disavow Weinstein. For years, policies and rhetoric by Republican lawmakers related to American women have been united by a common theme — that women cannot be trusted.
Following core conservative ideology, women cannot be trusted to make basic bodily decisions; instead, the government must make these decisions for them and hamper their access to the resources requisite to their autonomy.
Where to even start? First of all, Democratic stars and politicians have only “come out in droves” because they have been forced to by the sheer size and scope of this scandal, even though many knew about it for years and did nothing. Even Hillary Clinton herself, a longtime Weinstein pal, was essentially forced by the media to condemn his actions many days after the news broke.
Cheung then tries to link Weinstein, a man who acted on his repulsive urges in the most vile ways, to President Trump, who though he is guilty of engaging in crude banter, never actually assaulted or harassed anyone.
Exploiting the Weinstein reports in an attempt to mock the Democratic Party is disgraceful in its opportunism, but the problem at hand is deeper, even, than that: Those in positions of power often either abuse women or distrust and silence women who come forward. And whether these influential figures are billionaire presidents or billionaire Hollywood producers is irrelevant because, for women, the outcome is the same.
Giant Democrat Donor Harvey Weinstein is the GOP's fault.
I mean really. This is the cake taker. https://t.co/D4K1sCb6tg

Behold the result of decades of “critical thinking” as taught by predominately leftist academia. Alinsky would be proud.
