#MeToo, indeed.

Seems a Democrat activist did, in fact, what the Dems have spent the past three years condemning the President for *talking* about – not *actually* doing, mind you – while being surreptitiously filmed. A female GOP volunteer was sexually assaulted by a Democrat while working at the GOP booth.

So…all sexual harassment, to say nothing of assault, *isn’t* wrong?

#BelieveAccusers, indeed.

The attacker was a woman who was taking part in an organized demonstration at the GOP booth, by the way – one of an organized throng of goons who bum-rushed the booth yelling “F**k Trump”.

They – a half dozen guys – also harassed the three women, including Chair Carnahan, who were busy closing up the booth last night. Ever notice how it’s always throngs of male goons attacking women, alone or in small groups (like the “Anti”-Fa thugs who teamed up on Preya Samsundar two years ago)?

#Toxic “#Masculinity” indeed (or, more likely, proof that “toxic” masculinity isn’t “masculine” at all).

Berg’s Seventh Law is universal and omnipresent.

While I want to respect the victim’s privacy, I hope the video comes out.

I got a chance to interview, Chairwoman Carnahan on my show Saturda. She pointed out that she got all sorts of craven catcalling when she visited the DFL booth – whereas the DFL’s chair, Ken Martin, was treated with civility and respect at the GOP booth.

This is pretty much par for the course; in 2018, Saint Paul DFL mayor Melvin Carter felt perfectly comfortable walking into my GOP caucus meeting and giving a quick talk – which I, the chair, allowed, because hey, we gotta try to run a democracy together, right? But was *zero* chance in hell I could have returned the favor without an outbreak of hissing and complaints that I’d “triggered” someone or another.

Civility; it’s a one-way street in the Metro.

And what a perfect representation of Urban Progressive Privilege, huh? The thought that one might feel not only empowered, but entitled, to commit sexual assault in service of one’s politics, with the active encouragement of your fellow Democrats?

Who are the “resistance”, here, anyway?

  1. And if the video does come out, I hope all will be identified and arrested. Then sued in civil court for a hate crime.

  2. John Hinderaker of Powerline notes that the Strib’s coverage of the attack included the phrase “without evidence”, which kind of conflicts with the way the Left looks at events where the victims are leftist female/minority/other multi-lettered victim groups. No evidence necessary! If a video exists, by all means, link it! I also feel like pointing out that I was caught in an hour-long traffic jam Saturday afternoon on Snelling Avenue as I was driving to the State Fair. The delay courtesy of the StPPD’s decision to not interfere with a BLM protest that followed my intended route. All traffic on Snelling was diverted for hours. Ironically, after I had parked and was walking to the entrance, I passed a parking lot where several female African-American teens were gathered, although with at least one male holding a phone in video shooting mode. Before my astonished eyes, a fight erupted. Or, more accurately, one girl was attacked by another, beaten and kicked while the rest of the girls shouted encouragement. “Kill the bitch” was the least obscene phrase. The male accomplice continued to shoot video of the attack. Apparently, for this subset of the population, black lives did not matter much. Oh yeah. No cops in attendance. I didn’t waste my time calling them.

  3. Ah I remember the good old days where we would play a bizzare verzion of capture the flag between the two booths in the mid 2000’s. How times change…

  4. Golfdoc, smart move, I would have done the exact same thing, just walk away.

  5. I have two friends, who are more Libertarian than anything, that are let’s just say not exactly living check to check. Both of them tell me that when Trump talked about being able to grab women in their privates, he was right. They tell that they have had women literally throw themselves at them, when said women found out they had money.

  6. And thats why even if you are rich, you should do everything you can to avoid looking like it if you are a single guy, the quantity of women you attract will be large, the quality of women you will attract will be very, very low

  7. Regarding “without evidence”, the article made very clear that there was a police report filed, which, if I remember correctly, cannot be filed anonymously. So the left appears to be arguing, ironically, against the very evidence that was given to the police.

    As much as it is nice that Democrats appear to be coming out against the damage done by anonymous sources, that’s not the case here. Rather, the GOP is withholding the name of the victim from the press so she can’t be doxxed and smeared (or worse) while the police do their work.
