In 2018, when Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault in an accusation dating back to 1982, thousands of women showed up at the U.S. Capitol saying he was not fit to confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Women confronted Senators, including then Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, hoping to persuade him to vote no on Kavanaugh.
Many politicians, including now-President Biden, are on record saying women making allegations like this should be believed.
No witnesses to Christine Blasey Ford's accusation came forward to corroborate her story. The FBI investigated the accusation and found several who attended the same high school party thirty-six years ago couldn't remember details of it.
Nonetheless, the allegations were taken seriously.
That was then. This is now.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now facing his own sexual harassment claims by a former aide. Lindsey Boylan lists numerous allegations about Cuomo's inappropriate behavior in a blog post.
The allegations against Cuomo include:
- Cuomo kissing her on the mouth as she was leaving a room. The kiss was unsolicited.
- Telling her they should play strip poker.
- Another staffer, Stephanie Benton, emailed Boylan, writing, Cuomo 'said look up Lisa Shields (Cuomo's ex-girlfriend). You could be sisters. Except you're the better looking sister.'
Additionally, Boylan writes,
As (Cuomo) showed me around, I tried to maintain my distance. He paused at one point and smirked as he showed off a cigar box. He told me that President Clinton had given it to him while he served as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The two-decade old reference to President Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky was not lost on me.
She also says the harassment didn't just impact her. Two other staffers she talked to experienced the same level of harassment from Cuomo.
So why aren't thousands of women demanding the resignation of Andrew Cuomo? Politics. Allegations against Cuomo are constantly downplayed and ignored by Democrats and by the corporate media who drooled all over Cuomo because of his 'leadership' during the pandemic.
The same goes for Biden. Biden faces his own sexual assault allegations. He's done one interview about the allegation from a former staffer and hasn't been asked about it since. No one is lining up outside the White House demanding the President resign.
No one is calling either Biden or Cuomo a sexist or a misogynist.
Clearly, there's a double standard at play. Politics ruins everything including credible allegations made by women about men in power. This double standard exposes America's 'big lie.' The big lie is America takes seriously the sexual harassment allegations of all women like Biden said. However, allegations are used as a weapon only against Republicans and conservatives. The media and the same women who stormed the Capitol in 2018 are more than happy to look the other way when the allegation is against one of their own.
