Revealed: The underpinnings of the moral panic around workplace sex harassment

From Derek Hunter at Townhall:

In Politico, Jeff Greenfield points out, “How Roy Moore’s Misdeeds Are Forcing an Awakening on the Left.” It’s not an awakening, it’s a strategy. “Years of excusing Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct suddenly seems morally indefensible,” the subtitle declares.

“Suddenly”? No, liberals’ “years of excusing Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct” didn’t “suddenly” become “morally indefensible;” they became a political liability. The Clintons are of no value to Democrats anymore. They have nothing to sell and there’s no one to buy. Now there is no political price to be paid for attacking them and no political gain from defending them. More.

Reality check: Of course. The Clinton has-beens are a huge problem for the Dems. The trick is to use the moral panic to both get rid of the Clintons and weaken Trump. But that means they have to keep the panic going. When trainloads of women start arriving to complain about every randy reeve or disgusting dogcatcher, they may find the tsunami hard to steer. But we shall see.
