Conservative TV personality, Sean Hannity, was recently accused of sexual harassment. Such accusations against conservatives who are pubic figures is not new. We can remember Anita Hill’s spurious accusations against Clarence Thomas in September 1991. Her tale kept morphing each time she retold it. Candidate Donald Trump effectively silenced these type accusations last October when he said his accusers would be sued in court for these false and damaging (libelous and slanderous) claims. The resulting silence from his many accusers was deafening as they say. When faced with possible serious consequences, those who are willing to lie and smear often have second thoughts. Mr. Hannity, to his credit, is taking the offense (the best form of defense) here by assembling a top-notch legal team to sue false accusers. His accuser of this past weekend is now walking back her story.
Any and all who dare to oppose the current liberal mindset and the liberal agenda in the US are subject to being accused falsely to discredit their opinions, convictions and arguments, and ultimately to being silenced by being publicly disgraced.
Let’s take a step back and consider: What does this say about the level and quality of discourse in our free society?
