...LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!

Remember when conservatives were mad at just elected president Obama for going on The Tonight Show because it mocked the office of the president?

Would you still consider voting for a candidate accused of sexual harassment by multiple women?

OTOH, this means that most Democrats think "accused of sexual assault" means "guilty of sexual assault", ie not innocent until proven guilty. I worry that accusations of sexual misconduct will become weaponized political tools in the near future. Don't get me wrong though, for the current batch of accused I think it's reasonable to think they're guilty.

There is no OTOH of: there is a gap between ideologies of what is acceptable behavior.

I'd agree with you if the question was "Would you vote for a candidate who was CONVICTED of sexual harassment?" My point still remains that while putting politics above acceptable behavior is bad, assuming guilt is also bad. While this statistic looks damning on the surface (probably why you posted it), the more I think about it, it's actually not a great question - ex. what if the accuser isn't credible? what if the candidate was accused of something that happened decades ago, but their behavior since then is spotless and they apologize immediately? According to this chart, Democrats would never give them a second chance.

I'll conceed the point that it seems there wouldn't be a second chance but, I have a very big issue with the "what if the accuser isn't credible?" line of thought that continues the victim blaming that is not acceptable. I think the bigger picture, not the damning statistic on the surface, is the accepting of harassment from one of the political parties of the country.

First note: It was specifically 'multiple accusers'. Second note: a bunch of the 1415 people queried were probably responding to their perception of party lines. E.g. "This is probably a dang democrat asking about Trump" kind of thing. I'd like to hope that (if people stopped assuming bias, then the data would have less) reality would be less polar.(and creepy)

The link says "multiple women" but the graphic doesn't say anything about that. I definitely agree that every accusation should be taken seriously. Harassment and victim blaming are major problems that our country needs to address. That is part of the reason that I'm only worried about this becoming weaponized in the future; right now it takes a lot of courage to stand up and say something, which gives a certain amount of credibility right there. But jumping straight from "accused" to "guilty" is dangerous. I'm reminded of a story about a guy whose co-worker planted child porn on his work computer. Even though the police found out the truth, the guy's life was still basically destroyed. No one would hire him because "what if it was actually true?"

Opinion | Crucified man had prior run-in with authorities

Opinion | Crucified man had prior run-in with authorities:

fialleril:

Born (possibly out of wedlock?) in a stable, this jobless thirty-something of Middle Eastern origin had had previous run-ins with local authorities for disturbing the peace, and had become increasingly associated with the members of a fringe religious group. He spent the majority of his time in the company of sex workers and criminals.

He had had prior run-ins with local authorities — most notably, an incident of vandalism in a community center when he wrecked the tables of several licensed money-lenders and bird-sellers. He had used violent language, too, claiming that he could destroy a gathering place and rebuild it.

At the time of his arrest, he had not held a fixed residence for years. Instead, he led an itinerant lifestyle, staying at the homes of friends and advocating the redistribution of wealth.

He had come to the attention of the authorities more than once for his unauthorized distribution of food, disruptive public behavior, and participation in farcical aquatic ceremonies.

Some say that his brutal punishment at the hands of the state was out of proportion to and unrelated to any of these incidents in his record.

But after all, he was no angel.

Both scathing current events commentary and probably the best media writing I’ve seen on Jesus’ death, tbqh.
