MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski played apologist once again for her friend and former colleague Mark Halperin Friday, and said his accusers should hear him out and grant him a face-to-face meeting.
“Mark Halperin is more than willing to meet with his accusers and apologize with them face-to-face. I’ve actually tried to offer him to them. They don’t want to talk to him,” she said on “Morning Joe.” “There are some hypocrisies here. When things happen and men actually want to validate that truth, that’s important that we actually allow that if we want to grow as a society and learn from each other. If we just want to strike people down for political motivation or for anger, we are not going to get anywhere.”......To Read More....
My Take - First of all - and this really bothers me - she has a point. It's clear this condemnation by accusation is going to get out of hand. But whose fault is that? The hypocisy here isn't on the women who won't see or talk to Halprin. The hypocirsy lies with Brzezninski and her loony husband and all the leftist media for the last fifty years. Why? All of a sudden women need to help the men involved by "validating" what happened, hear apologies, and I would think excuses.
That was never a standard when Anita Hill lied at the Clearance Thomas hearings. Nothing by way of defense was even permitted without scorn being heaped on anyone - including Thomas - who defended him against the scurrilous statements by Hill, and absolutely no defense or explanation was permitted for Judge Roy Moore, in fact, the "women don't lie about this sort of thing" media machine went into overdrive.
And then it backfired.
What's different? In most of these cases it's Democrats, leftists, entertainment and media people who are being called to task by women who aren't willing to accept anything less than the total destruction of those accused. No defense, no excuses, no explanations - and now these leftist hypocrites like Brzezninski are all for fair hearings and explanations.
