In an NBC interview, a Democratic Senator said she believed Joe Biden and not the sexual assault allegations that have been made against him. This is a 180-flip in the Democratic Senator’s values.
In 2020, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said: “I stand by Vice President Biden. He’s devoted his life to supporting women and he has vehemently denied this allegation.”
In 2018, her stance on sexual assault was different, despite the person being accused at the time, also denying the allegations.
Hypocrisy At Its Finest
While giving a speech to Senate during the Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations (2018), Gillibrand said: “Do we value women in this country? Do we listen to women when they tell us about sexual trauma? Do we listen to their stories about how their lives have been forever scarred? Do we take their claims seriously? Or do we disbelieve them as a matter of course?”
The answer to all those questions may have been yes in 2018 but now, in 2020, the answer is no. If it was yes, Joe Biden would be under scrutiny in the mainstream media, from Hollywood elites, the left, and Democratic politicians.
In the same speech, Gillibrand said that because women fear retaliation and scorn they don’t speak out. Yet the Senator is happy to put Biden before these allegations, doing exactly what she was outraged over back in 2018.
What happened to the saying “Believe Women?”
Clearly, Democrats, Hollywood, and the biased media only believe you if your narrative doesn’t hurt their political agenda. Unfortunately for Tara Reade, her allegations target their great hope for defeating President Trump in the next election.
Kavanaugh Double Standard
Brett Kavanaugh was accused by Christine Blasey Ford for a sexual assault in high school, and then by Deborah Ramirez for exposing himself in a Yale dorm party. Neither accusations were proven and yet Democrats and the media ripped him to shreds.
Gillibrand, who criticized Republicans for their response to the sexual-assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said: “It’s telling American women that your voice doesn’t matter. It’s telling survivors everywhere that your experiences don’t count, they’re not important and they are not to be believed. We are saying that women are worth less than a man’s promotion.”
Where is the respect for Tara Reade, Joe Biden’s accuser, that she gave to Christine Blasey Ford?
In the same speech she told Senate: “I believe Dr. Blasey Ford because she’s risking everything — her safety, her security, her reputation, her career — to tell this story at this moment for all the right reasons. If we allow women’s experiences of sexual trauma to be second to a man’s promotion, it will not only diminish this watershed moment of societal change we are in; it will bring shame on this body and on the court.”
Somehow, Gillibrand’s values don’t consider Joe Biden’s push for election as putting Tara Reade’s trauma second to a man’s promotion.
The Steve Sanchez Daily Rant: Listen Now
Tara Reade Allegations
The sexual assault allegations have been made by a former staffer of Joe Biden, Tara Reade. What’s shocking is that there is more evidence backing up her accusations than there ever was for Christine Blasey Ford.
This doesn’t mean Joe Biden is guilty. However the level of ignorance from the mainstream media, the left, and Democrats shows a clear bias.
Since Tara Reade came forwards a host of new evidence has been found, including a CNN video from August 1993 which includes Tara Reade’s mother talking about the assault to Larry King.
Reade isn’t the only person to claim sexual assault against Joe Biden. Accusations include former Nevada state lawmaker Lucy Flores, Amy Lappos, Caitlyn Caruso, and D. J. Hill.
Yet, the mainstream media, Hollywood, and politicians continue to give Joe Biden a pass. If Reade was accusing President Trump we would have 24/7 coverage and anyone who disputes that is being dishonest.
