(Before It's News)
Donald Trump was caught in embarrassment, by the release of a recording of a private conversation in which he said tasteless and blustering things about his sexual prowess to another man, over a decade ago. The media is abuzz and politicians on both sides of the aisle are acting holier than thou, in exclaiming that it is the scandal to top all scandals, but once again, the hypocrisy is greater than the hype.
As a woman, I don't condone the salacious comments that Trump made, but equally I am neither surprised or shocked by the discloser of the locker room banter. Men are consumed with two things after reaching puberty and lasting until they die, sex and sexual bravado. Bragging about their sexual exploits (real or imagined) is a common sport among heterosexual men. Perhaps not all men contribute to that conversation, but you would be hard pressed to find a man that did not listen to it, at the water cooler, or locker room.
Is it offensive, childish, disrespectful and objectifying? Yes. Is it a reason to hate, fire or ruin a man's career over? Absolutely not. In fact, too many men that find that kind of banter inappropriate fail to speak up, so should they too, have their careers ruined? No.
Indeed, many men must endure the exploitive talk of other men about their manly abilities, and nod their heads in order to be included in the masculine club. Telling another man that their conversation denigrates women and is inappropriate, would be admitting as a man that you are weak, whipped, and a mama's boy. The razzing you would take, for standing up against that talk is worse, than silently listening. Most men simply find an excuse to walk away and escape the tawdry dialog.
Meanwhile, playing second fiddle to this scandal is the news item that newly disclosed e-mails reveal Hillary's private agenda, and what most already suspected, it revealed that she is a raging elitist's communist that cares nothing for average Americans. She has a public persona and a private soulless agenda that includes open borders and globalists savagery of our constitutional Republic. Trump doesn't speak with class and Hillary could care less about the Middle Class, but which will affect your future and your children's future more? The media thinks voter will stupidly chose lying crooked Hillary, over tactless Trump.
One, would think, that this unequivocal revelation would be front page news. One, would think, that this political agenda of hers, is far more important for voters to weigh in light of her bid for the presidency, because it would allow her to enact that devastating agenda. One, would think, that every Congressperson on the Republican aisle would be chastising Trump's words as offensive, but then stating that what Hillary proposes for the nation would be a systematic, offensive aggression, against America's Republic and that, that is by far, the greater immorality.
It is amusing to hear the left excoriate Trump over his tasteless comments while they defended Bill Clinton's actual sexual adultery, harassment and predation as a “private” matter. They venerate John F. Kennedy who also slept around on Jackie while in office, but Trump's tacky talk is offensive? They have a long list of Carlos and John's living dangerously, yet they want us to think they are outraged? The left wants no sexual morality rules as they attack marriage, disrupt public restrooms and want to throw away the status of gender based on birth, and DNA, to instead, be based solely on someone's claim of identity, yet we are suppose to believe they are horribly offended by Trump being a ill-bred male braggart?
The real truth here is this; neither candidate will win sainthood and when it comes to casting the first stone, for no one in America is scandal free, because we are all sinners. But when it comes to casting a ballot, we are not judging the personal moral conduct of a candidate but rather their leadership and agenda. Hillary unlike Trump is lying to the voter everyday and in all her commercials when she claims to be working for the middle class interests. Her policies will savage our economy and flood the country with more and more impoverished legal and illegal immigrants, while at the same time, we lose more and more jobs overseas. Her administration will be Obama's 3rd term or status quo, put on steroids.
The notion that this vulgar audio of Trump should persuade conservative voters to throw away the vital interests of their country in order to prove they are not, like the left, morally bankrupt, is folly. Words are not as strong as sticks and stones and Hillary's house is full of glass, smoke and mirrors.
Regardless of how you view the crudeness and crookedness of both of these flawed souls running for office, their agendas for the country are vastly disparate. This election isn't about who has bad taste, it is about who has bad policy.
Now, is not the time to get in motion to the other side of the aisle, based on a raffish private conversation. It is time to meet America's future, either you want more progressive economic malaise and social chaos or you want conservative economic restoration and social redemption. That's the only talk that should make you cast, the first stone cold, sober ballot, that will savage or save your country.
