Democrats Slammed Over Biden-Kavanaugh Double Standard, by Tyler Durden

Women should be believed when they allege sexual misconduct, at least if the woman is Christine Blasey Ford and she’s accusing a Republican president’s Supreme Court nomination. Women should not be believed, especially if they are accusing the Democratic party’s presumed presidential nominee. Never mind that the accuser, Tara Reade, has a much more substantial case than Ford did. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

With Joe Biden facing a sexual assault accusation from a former staffer who not only remembers the date, location, and who she told – and that there was penetration, Democrats who condemned Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over allegations which were devoid of the same level of specificity have come under fire for their utter silence, or defense, of Biden.

Both Biden and Kavanaugh have faced decades-old charges that first became public at critical junctures in their pursuit of high political office.

Former Georgia state congresswoman and gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is on the Joe Biden running mate short list and making no secret of her desire for the job, said on CNN Tuesday night that she did not believe rape allegations against Biden to be credible.

“The New York Times did a deep investigation and they found that the accusation was not credible. I believe Joe Biden,” Abrams said when pressed on further corroborating evidence that Biden’s accuser Tara Reade had been talking about a sexual assault by the then-senator way back in the nineties.

CNN’s Don Lemon pressed Abrams on the contradiction between her earlier “believe women” rhetoric about conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, to which Abrams responded that Kavanaugh’s accuser was not given a fair hearing but Tara Reade was. Past tense. Over and done with now.
