I follow Al's podcast channel on YT.
Probably only because he has a marbelous voice and is so well spoken.
(and because he interviewed my goddess:https://youtu.be/bbdpeJFKD0Y
I was aware of what happened to him, also I didn't digg into the details. When the lynch mob rules, it's a waste of time to listen.
It apeared obvious from the very first moment. Also, it is quite disturbing when you see that people like the pervert Cosby exist's. It's like loosing faith in truth, reallity and also your own judgement. At the same time we are forced to stand by the rule of asumption of inocens out of principal, not in the case of Cosby of course. When so many allegations pop up, of course we have to let justice do it's job, but that's more like observing to see if justice will be done.
So thanks for your capability to take your time and reconsider, and thanks for pointing out your considerations on how "the Franken case" went down.
I think in face of reallity in the very moment, Al did the smartest move he could do for the over all outcome.
When the mob is in blood thirsty rage .. let it be.
In germany we say:
"Eine Sau durchs Dorf treiben"
"To heard a sow thru the village"
Whe use that saying when ever a lot of fuzz is done about a nothing bugger, just for entertainment and most likely distraction of the plebs. You know, the sow screams, the people watch and a few have their fun and most likely a big meal at the end of the day.
"They" tried to do the same with Biden:
"He touched my hair!"
I understand that everyone has his own personal safety space behaviour and expectations and what for one person is creepy for another is just fine, or they even never wash their hair again.
But comparing that to a pu*** grabber society is just madness.
Of course we have to learn to readjust or behaviours and views in lot's of aspects, but we only can do it if we become aware of how things are percieved on the other side. So we even need to learn to speak up, having in mind the risk that what we say will be missused by others. Part of reallity of the pendulum is that once it swings to the other side, it will inevitably reach a certain extrem.
By taking a step aside, when he saw that pushing back was energy for the pendulum, Al decided to not only desinflate the baloon, but make it clear that dems shouldn't be like reps. What is it good for if you win by becoming like yor enemy?
If you look at the discussions, there is always certain absolutism, a black and white view.
Right know it's about:
"If they go low, we go high!"
"NO! It doesn't work! If they go low we go low to!"
Most likely it's some times yes, sometimes no.
I guess personally I'm more like:
"When they go low, I go high. When they go lower, I go a littel bit higher. When they go even lower, convinced that I'm stupid and a "Gutmensch", my foot, bend very high backwards behind my back, hit's em in their overconfident unprotected balls as hard as it can get."
btw - I forgot I'm also a total GabbardBro and probably a YangBro.
And we haven't even talked about what they did and are doing right now to Julian Assange, the Rosa Luxembourg of our time.
In the #CCC
they have a bullshit bingo:
"When ever their are certain kind of alegations, "childporn", "rape", "terrorism" you can be nearly sure that it's a "Scheinargument"."
Kinda fata morgana argument to smear someone or something because of a goal that has nothing to do with the most likely false alegations.
