NDP MP Christine Moore suspension
« on: May 10, 2018, 08:27:47 »
Found no where else to put this, so I figure it's time to start this fresh and anew.

Lets keep it civil?





The woman responsible for finishing the careers of 3 male MPs has now herself been accused of unwanted sexual advances.

Sending unsolicited sexual pictures.

Giving a soldier who told her he was on anti depressants and painkillers booze for the purpose of having sex with him

Showing up at his home in Manitoba unannounced for the purpose of sex.

Showing up at the golf course while he was with his friends unannounced.

Talk about a hypocrite. If genders were switched and it was a male MP doing this to a female soldier on anti depressants and painkillers it would be considered rape and people would be calling for jail time.
Someday I'll care about milpoints.

I listened to a radio commentary about this MP on the walk to the office today.  The irony and karma wasn't missed, also too a perceived double standard being applied in her case.  Her former NDP colleague was dismissed from caucus for being awkward in how he spoke to women whereas she allegedly crossed over so many boundries and hasn't really been held to fully account.

The larger issue is the destruction of due process and the Rule of Law, as demonstrated by the overall story arc. Watching people get destroyed on the basis of an accusation without the benefit of a full investigation or trial, and watching differential outcomes for the same behaviours based on extrinsic factors like the person's sex or ethnic background simply tells people they are no longer living under the rule of law, that arbitrary and ever changing standards will be used to judge actions and that we no longer live or operate in a high trust society.

Even the people pushing this sort of thig are not going to like living in the resulting society......
Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

And... she’s been cleared, in an NDP sort of way :)   The Wikipedia page was altered and edited before the announcement.
