I wish I had the time (or inclination) to go back and repost all of the arguments I had with Fark Progressives over the years about what a hypocritical douchebag this guy was.  The constant defense of this guy (and his brother) by the Fark Echochamber was deafening.  Now?  Not a peep.  It's all Whatsboutism.

A couple of related tendencies have developed, tendencies that I used to associate with conservatives.  A tendency toward hero worship, and slotting everyone into a simple binary: Good People and Bad People.

No one is right most of the time, but has a flaw or two.  No one has been wrong about some things, but got another thing or two right.  Everyone is either Hero or Villain.  To speak ill of a Hero is to render yourself a Villain.

Having said all that, my favorite bit from the Cuomo Worship era:

You know, I'm beginning to think we should just assume every male politician has abused his position and committed sexual offenses of some degree, at some point.  That would just save time.

Please, not Fetterman.

The thing that I don't really understand about our culture:  yes, sexual harassment is awful.  Obviously.  But is it really worse than the state covering up a bunch of deaths?  That2nnd thing was received like it was no big deal.  Still feels like a big deal.

Can't help wondering if Cuomo was pushed out to avoid having to deal with that.

OMFG  THOUGHTCRIME !
Actually that proves my point. He had a thought and didn't act on it. He could have kept silent but his ethics level is set a a very high setting. So he did what he thought was best - honest and open. I'M not a fan of southern baptists at all , but that man has earned my respect decades ago. In spite of his religion.

It is a problem that most generations still have alot of misogyny and on some level view women as "other" and not the same species and on equal ground.

When you have that psychological subtext and power at the same time, bad shiat happens.

Heaven help us when you try to teach real gender equity in school or if we tried to teach critical gender theory :p

Nah, the trend you'll see is the more someone is a self-proclaimed liberal, the more they trend towards "if you have an opinion I disagree with, it's because you're a bad person for thinking that."

It gets further and further from judging a person based on their thoughts and not who they are.

You can't have a good person with bad ideas, because if they have bad ideas they must be a bad person.

I've never heard a self-proclaimed conservative take that position - it tends to be more "we don't agree politically, but he's a good person" or "we agree about everything, but man is he an asshole".

One of the last videos I watched was about Eddie Betts. Happily married , 2 kids , he is going to help a rival team develop players. That was a letdown as once he left Adelaide and went back to Carlton and then retired I and many others thought he would get into coaching Aboriginal kids. But no , he wasn't offered that by Carlton so he took a job with Geelong.

Conversely, the women who Pops felt up never reported it, because it was a different time.

Also conversely, it may be that the women who have made accusations of the Cuomo juniors are exaggerating or lying. There's no objective evidence of anything, only accusations. CNN may have just been waiting for an excuse to get rid of Cuomo's low-rated show, and don't have to pay out the rest of his contract now.

What is the difference between my thoughts and who I am?

And to forestall the "Actions are what matter" bit, just in case:  My thoughts are what create my actions.  You don't sexually harass your coworkers if you just keep your mind on business instead of the bedroom.  Learn to think about other people's feelings and you won't tell offensive jokes.

As for the conservatives not doing that sort of thing.... What?  Really?  Let me tell you about a sign in my neighbor's yard.  It's "Joe and the Ho Must Go."  Do you think he's calling Harris that because he thinks she's a hard working, well intentioned person who just happens to disagree with him?
