This stuff has completely hobbled left-wing politics. The accuser, a registered lobbyist who has a prior professional relationship with one of Stringer's rivals () was reportedly 30 years old at the time she now claims she was preyed upon Image
The initial PR offensive labeled the accuser merely as an "intern" so as to present her as vulnerable Image
Stringer claims he had a months-long consensual relationship with this adult woman. But because he's accepted all the premises of left/liberal orthodoxy around this issue, he can't effectively combat the accusations and is thus hobbled
Stringer's contention is that he's been falsely accused of sexual crimes. But being "too defensive" in the face of purportedly false allegations is now grounds to be exiled overnight from left-wing advocacy organizations you've spent a career cultivating personal connections with Image

The NYC mayoral candidate most in vogue among the Activist Left immediately proclaimed the need to "believe survivors" after this incredibly dubious PR offensive was launched to nuke a rival left-wing candidate. It's all amazingly cynical and exploitative
If this evidence doesn't compel you to treat these accusations with extra suspicion -- especially as a journalist -- then you are a dogmatic zealot who cannot be reasoned with, and should just admit as much
I mean, this really has all the makings of a quintessential campaign-season hit-job. And left-wing journalists/activism just gobble it all up with no skepticism whatsoever

These Robotically Similar Reactions To The Derek Chauvin Verdict Will Inspire You…
You don't even have to read the full post if you don't want, just scroll through the extremely long list of public figures reciting the exact same words and phrases. It's honestly hypnotic ImageImage
I don't know, I guess if I worked in corporate communications I'd say the same thing -- seems pretty good for business if your clientele is anything but explicitly conservative

Spoiler alert: People like @JuddLegum have to pretend that no one objected to the "cancelation" of the Dixie Chicks -- which is demonstrably, glaring false -- because it's his ideological allies who now overwhelmingly wield the cultural/political power to "cancel," unlike in 2003
Yeah, I apologize for dead-naming the Dixie Chicks in this post
Good comment proposing a theory for why @JuddLegum and others have chosen to actively mislead their followers/readers into believing there was no concerted backlash to the "cancelation" of the Dixie Chicks

Among the "public officials" so heroically EXPOSED by this bombshell report: "Craig Shepherd, who public records show is a paramedic in Utah... gave $10 to Rittenhouse on 30 August"

Really holding power to account here, so grateful

Also note that this crowdfunding information was obtained via "data breach" but Twitter isn't appending any scary warnings about "hacked materials" to tweets circulating this article, rather Twitter has decided to editorially promote the article Image
Make sure you "show your support for high-impact journalism" by handing over money to the Guardian so they can continue EXPOSING paramedics in Utah who gave $10 to a legal defense fund Image
