Perversion doesn’t know left from right

To all those on the far right who are clamouring for Anthony Weiner to be fired, ousted from office, hanged, killed and otherwise punished for sending e-mails of his “member of Congress” to various women, donning their best holier-than-thou robes and pretending - out of stupidity, ignorance, or simple moronic partisanship - that the mantle of “pervert” is reserved for Democrats, I’d like to present the following.

DISCLAIMER: This post IN NO WAY claims, implies or insinuates that no Democrats are guilty of these kinds of offenses. I'm quite sure there's an equally despicable list of Democrats out there. This list is simply presented to expose the sheer toilet-headed idiocy of claiming and/or pretending that no Republicans are.

Perversion, deviance, sexual predatorship and molestation have no political party affiliation.

Claiming that it does makes you an idiot.

I’ll be the first to agree with you that there are perverts among the republican and democrat ranks and each one of them should be fired, inprisoned and fined to the maximum extent of the law.

All the pervs you mention above ended up losing their jobs and/or going to jail.

Is your point that Weiner should suffer a similar fate?

The reason the Weiner case is so funny is because he is such a funny little creep. He brought it on himself.

The funny part of the hypocrisy is also on the Democrat side and how fast they can shape shift. Generally, a perv can avoid criticism by feminists and liberals if he votes in their direction and talks PC.

Here is one fast change:

* “We’re willing to give Weiner the benefit of the doubt when he claims his Twitter account was hacked and that he didn’t send the picture. That kind of thing, unfortunately, happens all too often these days. That’s not to say he gets a free pass; if evidence does emerge that he is sending lewd pictures to young women, he should be held to account for both harassment (the digital equivalent of street flashing) and lying to the public. But no one has presented any such evidence.”—editorial, Los Angeles Times, June 2
* “Barring new revelations, we’d prefer to leave it to New York voters to decide Weiner’s political future… . We’re not sure being a perverse Internet troll, and lying about it, qualifies as an impeachable offense in the Chatroulette era.”—editorial, Los Angeles Times, June 8

This Liberal feminist thinks he’s a complete and total jackass. And a liar. He should resign. He doesn’t get a pass because he’s Progressive.

C&J, I would think that my point was rather clear.

“Perversion, deviance, sexual predatorship and molestation have no political party affiliation. Claiming that it does makes you an idiot.”

What part of that doesn’t savvy for you?

Gary, I agree that sexual perversion knows no political boundaries. A similar list of Democrats would have made your case stronger.

Where the Republican politicians hold the lead is in hypocrisy. Party of God and all that.

If the allegations against Rumsfeld are true, they go way beyond sexual deviance.

A similar list could be made for politicians and government officials for non sexual criminal acts.

I don’t understand why the only choice is either a Democrat or Republican.

After reading this list Gary I am having a tough time putting Weiner in the same category as these guys. Weiner may have been foolish but he is not in the same league as these guys by a long shot.

The reason the Weiner case is so funny is because he is such a funny little creep. He brought it on himself.

C&J, I guess there is a difference between being a funny little creep as you claim Weiner to be and a not funny creep as these repubs listed above seem to be. Those guys also brought it on themselves after all.

The funny part of the hypocrisy is also on the Democrat side and how fast they can shape shift. Generally, a perv can avoid criticism by feminists and liberals if he votes in their direction and talks PC.

While the funny part may be on the dems side the truly sick and perverted hypocrisy seems to be on the “family values” teapub side,IMHO.

Dems often survive such things. Recall Barney Frank, who not only used prostitutes, but whose boyfriend was essentially running a stable of whores out of Barney’s house. He still prospers.

Republicans are usually out very quickly.

David Vitter?

Mark Sanford?

Almost 2 years elapsed between when John Ensign admitted to infidelity until he resigned.

Scandals such as this occur equally on both sides; each side handles each scandal differently. Democrat Eliot Spitzer and Republican Christopher Lee resigned immediately. I listed three Republicans who did not immediately resign, which you can compare to Wiener, Frank or Ted Kennedy reaction to their various scandals.

Frank & Kennedy never actually stopped their bad behaviors, yet they were/are hailed as great statesmen.

Kennedy’s perfidy actually killed a young woman. It is hard to equal that. Yet Kennedy continued on to a very long and distinguished career.
