I am ashamed of the Democratic Party. I’ve been ashamed of the Republican Party for a long time. Before I go any further, let me just say that I am one of the #metoo movement, I started my career in a male-dominated profession way back in the dark ages – in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The career I chose I was told by men that women didn’t enter. But I did.
Women didn’t involve themselves in the profession of finance. I broke the rules. I didn’t care. I knew the career I wanted and I was determined to have it. I almost fractured my skull for the next 30 years on the glass ceiling. I was sexually harassed more times than I can count. Many men were affectionate toward me. I learned the difference between harassment and just plain affection.
I’m not trying to say that Biden is right. I have mixed feelings about that. I do think it’s curious that these women who are coming out of the woodwork and accusing him of improper behavior didn’t do this long ago instead of a few days or weeks before he was going to announce his candidacy for President in 2020. Don’t you? Why now?
I also want to pose a question to you, my readers. When I was faced with inappropriate behavior by men in the workplace, I had enough sense to turn around and tell them to get the hell out of my face. Who just sits there and takes it? I say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the damn kitchen. If you can’t cope with your workplace, you shouldn’t be there. Open your mouth and speak. Yell. Scream. Tell them to get the hell away from you. Sheesh.
To the members of the Democratic Party. I am ashamed that you would turn on one of your own. I am ashamed that some of you would call others of us hypocrites because we aren’t ready to crucify Joe Biden. I am ashamed that you can’t be strong, take care of yourself, and tell men who behave inappropriately to get away from you. Instead, you want all of us to ruin a good man’s life. Why? It is as much about promoting your own agenda as it is about Biden’s conduct. You are in favor of other Democratic candidates and you are afraid Biden will enter the race and eat their lunch. At least be honest about what you’re doing.
The Democrats will never defeat Donald Trump if they keep on fighting amongst themselves. The most important issue is beating Trump, not destroying your own to promote your own agenda.
