So ..... yet another Democrat voter. My embarrassment grows. I find myself sickly hoping for some right winger to go down. But the trend is undeniable, at least so far. In the mean time, I think we must ask ... what exactly has inspired this culture of leftist sexual abuse?

Is it power? Is it because the left in general, at least in politics and entertainment, seem to crave it so? Does that quest for power overlap and apply to sexual conquest and satisfaction?

I don't get this connection you're seeing between sexual abuse and the left or right wing.

Because the vast majority of these revelations involve men of the left-leaning persuasion? And like I said, "so far."

But why you ask? My theory:

The left's mindset is based in statism, or the state having power over individuals. In politics they're in charge of delegating, preserving, and enhancing this power. In entertainment the TV or movie screen is their 'state', and these men have great power over people's thinking on a variety of subjects, in most cases tending to nudge us toward the left. Not to mention having a lot of money, and being the gatekeepers for others wanting to have a lot of money, fame, and thus ..... power for themselves.

That this mostly leftist-centric power fixation would transfer over to sexuality I don't think is really that arguable, or even surprising. That most of these people being accused are on the left therefore is really not either, unfortunately.

It seems that there is no limit to the irrational moralistic hysteria that can be whipped up by a toxic corporate media. Boycott the corporate media, both as a political statement and for one's own mental health and observe these periodic bouts of fabricated insanity from a distance.
