‘All predators will go down’: As veil of silence falls, Weinstein effect keeps growing

NEW YORK — In the three weeks since the string of allegations against Harvey Weinstein first began, an ongoing domino effect has tumbled through not just Hollywood but at least a dozen other industries. It’s open season on open secrets.

Nearly every day has brought new allegations of sexual harassment, assault or misconduct, and subsequent firings, dismissals or the distancing of men in various stations of power, from highly regarded media pundits to celebrity chefs.

    A purge of the hypocritical left is a consummation devoutly to be wished.

    The Ottawa Sun article, in typical leftist journalist spin, ascribes this to the “patriarchy crumbling.”

    The progressive snarks still don’t get it.

    Good there is no room for harassment of any kind period. My concern is who and what defines harassment, is the “geeky” guy with his clumsy repeated attempts to get a date with the office beauty going to be charged? What about a considerate coworker who comments on how pretty you look in a new outfit? I work in a male dominated industry and recently I had a complaint filed against me by a female coworker and the only reason I kept my job was I had 4 witnesses that saw the incident and saw her doing what she accused me of. HR told me if it was just her and I bye bye job. In typical western liberal fashion this mess is going to go from one extreme i.e. see no evil report no evil to the other, accusations whether true or not will mean guilt.
