Harassment of the Sexes
One cannot help but notice all of the women coming out of the woodwork these days about sexual harassment. Harvey Weinstein seems to have opened the proverbial can of worms. Even former President George H.W bush was accused of participating in a couple of groping incidents at age of 93. It seems that the male species just cannot keep their libido in check. But I question the cause of this phenomena. Is it the uncontrolled sexual desires of men that cause these reactions or does the actions of women play a part? Women have long been degraded in the public media as sex objects. Should some of the blame for male indiscretion be placed on the backs of women? Sports Illustrated publishes scantily clad women in bikinis in annual editions. We all see the ads on the internet of the most amazing female weather announcers. Larry Flint and Hugh Heffner were icons in the business of selling pornographic images to a gullible male public. However these tabloids do not hold a candle to the pornography available on the internet. Male addiction to pornography on the net even rises to the level of the disgusting trade of child pornography. My point behind these examples is that the main actors in the sexual production of images are women. Women allow themselves to be filmed and photographed. Women wear tight fitting stretch pants. Women wear low cut blouses to expose most of their cleavage. Women wear short, tight fitting skirts to expose their perfectly trimmed rump or sometimes not so perfectly trimmed rumps. Women wear bikinis in public events. Why do women feel a desire to expose their most private body parts and make exhibits of themselves? Sure Weinstein’s actions are wrong. Men should not use their positions of power to coerce women into sexual favors. Even bill Clinton was famous and guilty for a few trysts. But do women bare any blame? Do they use their looks and body parts to get what they desire: jobs, attention, and money? Humans cannot change the way we are programed but we can change our attitudes and our actions. Just maybe the Muslims have one thing right. Muslim men force their women to wear the hajib and burqa to prevent lewd images that excite their sexual desires. Just maybe we Westerners should take their lead and practice a little restrain by all parties concerned.
Crazy commentators like Juan Williams are writing things like Columbus Day should be abandoned because Columbus is somehow blamed for the deaths and atrocities committed against the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Other commentators have joked that Columbus was the first illegal immigrant and the alt- left should be celebrating his life and discoveries instead of tearing down his statues. I propose that they both have it wrong. The Indians were actually immigrants who migrated to the Americas starting from Asia, crossing the land bridge into Alaska and Canada and then migrating all the way to the tip of South America. To take these illogical arguments even further, the Asians were immigrants from Africa, where humans were first created. So if you want to protest, protest God, your creator and His stupidity in creating you.
Separation of Church and State
Any federal or state law which impinges upon a person’s free exercise of religion is a violation of the separation of church and State clause. The alt-left so often invokes this clause. For example, if a public school posts the 10 commandments, the alt-left will immediately file suit to remove the plaque. Well maybe the tables have turned. President Trump is now overturning regulations and executive orders issued by the Obama administration which forced businesses and individuals to provide contraceptive and abortion services to employees even if the business held religious objections. The right must stand up for the equal enforcement of the separation of church and state clause of the Constitution. The alt-left needs a dose of its own medicine. Federal and state governments cannot make laws which impinge on the free exercise of religion.
