“If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”
—Feminist writer Emily Linden, in the most unethical portion of an unethical twitter screed. After it was roundly attacked as the despicable, sexist, Left- facist, “by any means necessary” mind poison that it is, she hid her Twitter account. But of course.
Here is her whole yuck-pooie! rant:
“Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations…false allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic. It’s a microscopic risk in comparison to the issue at hand (worldwide, systemic oppression of half the population)…The benefit of all of us getting to finally tell the truth + the impact on victims FAR outweigh the loss of any one man’s reputation..If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”
Yes, Emily is absolutely willing to pay a price that involves devastating harm to someone else. This woman is allegedly a writer, and yet delivered a rhetorical punch to he own jaw like that. Wow.
It is really, really important for the American public to know just how unpopular this opinion is, how many progressives, feminists and Democrats reason this way—you know, like totalitarians and fascists—what their names are, and what candidates they support.
Linden’s logic rejects the Rule of Law and the justice system. It isn’t that “It is better 100 guilty persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer,” but that it is better to ensure the punishment of the guilty than to ensure due process and fairness for the innocent. Linden’s argument follows Colin Kaepernick’s theory that if an unarmed black man is shot by the police, it is best that we send the right message by presuming he is guilty, and a racist as well. Hers was the “logic” behind the Obama administration “Dear Colleague letter” that made every college date a potential life-altering risk. It is the idea behind the arguments of zealots who want to cripple the First Amendment, the Second, the Fourth, and the Fifth. Linden has articulated a full endorsement of the ends justifies the means as a governing principle.
I want to know exactly who agrees with her, and then I want to make sure whatever groups that are controlled by such people are as far from power and influence in this country as possible.
