When perception meets reality it’s time to change the landscape

We no longer need President Donald Trump to drain the swamp.  It appears the swamp is draining itself.  And, as an added bonus, sanctimonious Hollywood stars and biased journalists are joining the spin around the drain.

The daily revelations of men in power exposed as sexual predators is reaching absurd levels.  It reminds me of the steroid era in Baseball where every Major Leaguer was guilty until proven innocent.  I still believe there needs to be credible proof before we destroy people’s lives and it needs to be more than a tearful recollection of something that happened decades in the past.

However, too many men are apologizing, being suspended, or fired for their disgusting behavior that we reached the point where men must prove their innocence rather than be presumed innocent.

That’s a dangerous place to be but apparently a well-deserved and earned burden.  It’s ironic that women are now emboldened to come forward under a Trump presidency when the scare tactics during the campaign and immediately after the election were the exact opposite.

It’s time to clean house and I for one am happy the politicians, journalists and Hollywood idiots are, if you pardon the phrase, bringing themselves down.

Personally, I don’t get it.  I do not see how a man gets his jollies parading naked or masturbating in front of a woman.  I do not get the excitement of sending a picture of my private part to a woman.  At what point does a man decide it’s a good idea to do that?  I do not know how grabbing a woman’s body part without her consent brings excitement or is considered acceptable.

Apparently, these politicians believe themselves to be untouchable but like to touch.

Perhaps they should try for a meaningful relationship with people other than themselves.  But these men are shallow.  They are egomaniacal and have no concept of what meaningful is and no idea of reality.  To them, it’s all about the perception of who they think they are instead of the pigs they truly are as humans.  They live on fooling their constituents and fans into believing that perception and the fools believe these miscreants to be real.

If the allegations are true, all the men guilty of such atrocities need to take up residence in that nice little place where they will be the ones molested.  Let them feel helpless like the women they abused felt.

The guilty must be accountable for their actions.  No free passes.  No looking the other way because the media likes the guy.  No wink, wink boys-will-be-boys defense.  If they did the crime, they must do the time.

What I find sickening is these jerks position themselves as advocates for women’s rights. The reason most “normal” people do not enter politics is because most of us have a sense of decency mixed with a modicum of morals.

No self-respecting man will stand up against the very thing he is guilty of doing.  But that is a way of life for those in politics, journalism and Hollywood.  They lived their perception for years; now comes the reality.

 

 

About Armando Diana

A freelance writer for more than 30 years I covered the political scene in New Jersey which can prepare anyone for national politics. I have no fancy political degrees and I'm definitely not a lawyer - I am a common person who is fed up with politics. I want leaders focused on doing what is right for the country, not for them.
