I’m sure folks have seen an accusation of sexual assault against Joe Biden — and all the conspiracy theories flying around it, from supporters of both Sanders and Biden. Here’s my debunking of four big conspiracy theories. salon.com/2020/03/31/a-w…
First, is it true the mainstream media is suppressing this story to protect Biden/hurt Sanders? No. There's a lot of red flags around this story that require a lot of independent verification, which I can attest is not easy to do.
Is is true that Time's Up rejected Alexandra Tara Reade's requests for public relations assistance to protect Biden? No. That aid is for women who are making sexual harassment or abuse claims in court — which Reade isn't doing.

(1/7) The story of Biden's rape of Tara Reade puts new perspective on the Anita Hill story...

#IBelieveTaraReade #MeToo #MeTooBiden #JusticeForTara #CreepyJoe #CreepyJoeBiden #AnitaHill #DropOutJoe #MSMCoverTara @TYT @CNN @MSNBC
(2/7) In the 1990s, George Bush appointed Clearance Thomas to the supreme court. During the confirmation hearings, it was revealed that Thomas had sexually assaulted a lawyer named Anita Hill.
#IBelieveTaraReade #MeToo #AnitaHill #DropOutJoe #MSMCoverTara @TYT @CNN @MSNBC
(3/7) Biden, despite being a Democrat, viciously smeared Anita Hill. He attacked her repeatedly when she testified against Thomas in the Senate.
No one could figure out why Biden, a Democrat, would engage in such dirty and vicious attacks, on behalf of Republicans.

As a sexual assault survivor I've EXACTLY zero fu*KS 2 give #WokeAF #Berners trolling me on being my best #MeToo

After months of research on the orchestrated takedown of #betoorourke by Bernie Delegate Network I'd bet this attack on Biden has #puppetmaster written all over it
AND AS IF BY MAGIC....

Now the entirely UNFOUNDED allegations from podcast w/2016 Bernie Sanders delegate Katie Halper & amplified by Intercept @ryangrim are released into the wild via op-ed @guardian by the now quite familiar cog in Bernie delegates media smear machine @ArwaM
BTW....I called that yesterday. Next few 2 jump in will be from Vox, Salon, Capital & Main, Paste & Jacobin, I am sure of it.

The Guardian Op-ed begins with assumption that 100% of Ms Reade's story is fact & pushes narrative that MSM is burying it instead of vetting story 1st.

Just gonna make a thread of ALL the stories about Biden and his problem with groping and inappropriately touching women prior to 2020. These come from all sources including moderate ones.

Tara's story didn't just pop up.

Here he is joking about the allegations last summer.

“I want the press to know, she pulled me close."

April 2019, NPR

"He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth."

Chanel Miller was gracious enough to let me into her life for two days in Feb before the world changed. Every word out of her mouth can be printed and framed. This story is the result of six months of work, I hope you spend time on it #MeToo #KnowMyName espn.com/espnw/story/_/…
There are so many quotes that knocked me out, but when I sit back and think about it, this is my favorite one. espn.com/espnw/story/_/…
.@brendatracy24 was kind enough to talk to me about Chanel, and how athletes are treated as bodies and not as fully evolving human beings:

"This is why Chanel's voice is so important -- it's shifting the way we talk about athletes and their actions."

I looked up PARKER WITH FRIENDS & found💥children’s💥book “FRIENDS” by #TheronParker abt 2 boys..
...who meet in an ally, 1 deaf & they “WORK TOGETHER TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO COMMUNICATE”

What are the odds?

"The question & objection I keep hearing raised is this one: Why now? Why come in at the 11th hour when Joe Biden is on the verge of clinching the Democratic nomination?

The question of course is meant to undermine the claim and cast it as politically motivated...
...The more Red Scare conspiracy minded have taken that even one step further, going full Russian agent on Terra based on a Russia friendly blog post that she wrote as if her views on Russia remotely relate to Joe Biden's actions on that day in the 90s as if it's not far more...
...preposterous to imagine that Tara Reade is some Kremlin agent than that a powerful man committed an egregious Act.

But the story of "Why now?" is actually incredibly telling. It says everything about how our elite institutions routinely cover four powerful men...

What #BelieveWomen means to me is that women be given the opportunity to be heard and to tell their stories, without the first reaction being “she’s lying.” Tara Reade deserves what the #metoo movement has demanded for all women; a fair inquiry, which she currently isn’t getting.
What do I mean by “fair inquiry?” By this I mean that most harassment/assault claims against high powered men aren’t first taken up by a court of law, which means that journalists take up the role of investigators. They call corroborators, they ask for any sort of evidence /1
- photos, text messages, emails, etc., they compare the current statements with any past statement(s), they talk to people who know the person to try to determine credibility, etc etc etc. /2

Ah yes! During Bernie Bro false accusations against @JoeBiden, which might have been slightly more credible without Cyrillic love poetry to Vladimir Putin, let’s not forget Lucy Flores went first!

That’s THIS Lucy Flores
Clutching the Vice President’s shoulder and smirking
Lucy Flores didn’t seem to think she was groping @JoeBiden inappropriately

Nor did she complain about @BillClinton.....
Or, and especially not, @BernieSanders.

Be better than this Bernie campaign. Stop using #MeToo for out and out false propaganda against @JoeBiden. And Selfish Sanders needs to drop out rather than endanger all New York in a pointless primary.

Fuck the thread out of me.

Dont talk to me about candidates records anymore. Democrat’s want people to look at Bernie’s record on everything so as to say “he’s done nothing” which is another total lie.
Then they get offended at everything about Bernie as they pull up nothing legitimate to attack him with as they say “forget about Joe’s record on everything.” And If you do bring up Joe’s terrible record they’ll smear, harass and abuse you. Nothing matters.
Dont talk to me about racism anymore. Democrats call “Bernie a racist” based on nothing but lies as they deny that the architect of the Crime Bill Joe Biden’s policies locked up Blacks at huge numbers for decades.

This is a story that @ReadeAlexandra has been trying to tell since it happened in 1993. It's a story about sexual assault, retaliation and silencing. #meToo soundcloud.com/katie-halper/j…
Tara had already come forward about part of her story. After Lucy Flores accused Biden of touching her inappropriately, Reade was one of the 7 other women to share their own stories about Biden. Reade told reporters about the way he would put his hands on her shoulders...
run his fingers up and down her neck. She considered talking about the rest of her story. But she didn't because her claims of sexual harassment got her doxxed and smeared as a Russian agent. That was April 2019. Then in January 2020, Reade tried to come forward again...

@LioConvoy85 @RealClownfishTV @Kneon @Selphares1 @EncoreTerrence @desert_starr_57

So i got you all here and I promised I would say something about Thundercats Roar, and that last episode they did, better time than never is now.
I heard the stories, but for those of you who are fans of this franchise - please, please do not go after the Voice Actors - Larry Kenney especially. The man has reached a certain age that - criticism of his works just cannot hold water or legitimacy at this late date.
The criticism falls squarely on Cartoon Network and the showrunners in particular for even letting this series on the air only to end in 13 episodes for...reasons(?) but to diss the two fanbases from the 85 and 2011 series.

Now let's talk about Third Wave feminism. Shall we? Get some Dramamine, this is truly vomit inducing. So one of the things that is very obvious is that feminism is still coattailing on other movements.
But since the west has kind of sorted the Gay and Lesbian thing out they had to pick another movement. They picked the Transgender movement. I think this indicates a definite lack of creativity on their part.
I guess feminism thought that since slipstreaming on one sexuality movement worked so well for their mothers that they would pick another similar to it. It's not similar at all. Let me explain.

Wignats and feminists, shaking hands and agreeing that the fame-hungry careerist thots who banged Weinstein to move up in Hollywood are innocent victims
“Conservatives need to get beyond their principles,” says the guy who’s supporting an obvious feminist witch hunt due to his singular principle of hating Jews
Weinstein is a gross pervert, sure, and I won’t exactly be losing sleep over him rotting away in a cell, but the #metoo stuff is clearly a mechanism of feminist social control against males. If they can do this to Weinstein, they can sure as hell do it to you!

1/Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison today. He was convicted in New York City in late February for criminal sexual assault in the first degree and rape in the third degree. Jurors acquitted him on the more serious charges. nytimes.com/2020/03/11/nyr…
2/The conviction offered a measure of justice to some in the #MeToo movement. nytimes.com/2020/02/24/nyr…
3/It has also served as a powerful endnote to the reporting by the New York Times and the New Yorker that led to a public airing of the accusations against Weinstein that had long been silenced.

Check out my interview with the incomparable Rebecca Solnit! We talk about violence against women, #MeToo, the pain of Warren’s loss, and punk rock. salon.com/2020/03/10/reb…
I particularly like Solnit's comments about why she calls street harassment "menancing" instead of "harassment". Even online, I'd say men draw on their knowledge that women are in real physical danger to add menace to the behavior.
And Solnit on how toxic masculinity made punk less fun.

I recently did a thread on #PurpleRain where I broke down the ridiculous business model of the (fictionalized) First Avenue nightclub portrayed in the film.

Naturally, I have a follow up on #Prince’s “Graffiti Bridge”, which has not one but FOUR nightclubs...
...all of them run like trash.

So, another dive into the PCCU (Prince Cinematic Club Universe). I have 18 observations. Get comfortable.
The story of Graffiti takes place in Minneapolis at the fictional Seven Corners...art district? Skid row? The Seven Corners AREA is populated by lots of steam grates, nowhere near enough streetlights, the most unsavory creative class to ever bebop in a street, and 4 clubs:
