…The result of the propaganda fueled media frenzies of today is a mob that has more in common with the lynch mobs of the Old West than with anything resembling reasoned sanity. Anyone who participates in the ‘public hanging’ of media accused ‘criminals’ today is little different from those who lynched the accused in the West without a trail.
That said, there is a difference between the accusations leveled against Weinstein and Moore: Over 50 women came forward to accuse Weinstein, accounts that were corroborated by the common knowledge of his actions within a whole industry and police investigations that may still result in a criminal indictment. There is more than just smoke around Weinstein. Moore on the other hand, was not accused of anything in over 30 years of running for different political offices. The timing of his accusers is highly suspect, coming just before a critical Senate campaign and election. And the veracity of his accuser’s testimony has come under increased scrutiny and question. In this light, it is disappointing, to say the least, how many supposed ‘leaders’ have rushed to judge him and call for him to step down. The ‘Hang ‘Em High’ mentality of the media, deluded politicians, and the mob is not indicative of the due process of American justice.
