Donald Trump’s Comments About Women Spark Hypocritical Leftist Uproar

Cross-posted from American Power.


The left's hypocrisy is to be expected. I mean, it's just par for the course.

Following-up from last night, "Donald Trump Apologizes (VIDEO)."

At WSJ, "Donald Trump's Lewd Comments About Women Spark Uproar":
Donald Trump’s Republican presidential campaign was in damage control late Friday after a decade-old recording emerged in which he speaks in crude sexual terms about women.

Mr. Trump quickly apologized for the comments, which included talk about grabbing and kissing women, saying they were “foolish.” But the recording drew blunt rebukes from both the Republican Party’s top elected official and the head of the GOP and didn’t sit well with some of Mr. Trump’s evangelical supporters.

“I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down,” Mr. Trump said in a video statement posted on his Facebook page after midnight EDT on Saturday.

Mr. Trump said he regretted saying the things captured in the recording. “I was wrong and I apologize,” he said.

He then switched his focus to former President Bill Clinton, the husband of his rival, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who he said “has actually abused women.”

“We will discuss this more in the coming days,” he said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said he was “sickened” by the recording and uninvited Mr. Trump to a campaign event in his state scheduled for Saturday. Mr. Trump said in a statement that he would send his running mate, Mike Pence, in his place, and instead spend the day in debate preparations.

In the 2005 recording, Mr. Trump said: “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.…

“And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.…Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything,” Mr. Trump added.

Mr. Trump also referred to a married woman whom he said he tried to seduce: “I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f—her.…”

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Mr. Trump said in the recording. “Then, all of a sudden, I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

“No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever,” said Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, in a written statement.

Before the evening was out, Mr. Trump had drawn the opprobrium of other Republicans, including former GOP presidential rivals Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, several GOP senators running for re-election, and former GOP presidential nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney.

Still, few Republicans pulled support from Mr. Trump. Those who did were a trio of Utah politicians: Gov. Gary Herbert and U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz withdrew their endorsements while former Gov. John Huntsman called on the nominee to quit the race.

Two other Republican congressmen who hadn’t supported Trump—Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois and Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado—called on Mr. Trump to quit the race. So did Rob Engstrom, the political director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “There is no GOP nominee for president in 2016,” Mr. Engstrom posted on Twitter. “Fundamentally offensive and unqualified.”

Ralph Reed, the founder and chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, dismissed the recording as an ancillary issue for religious voters in the election.

“People of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defend religious freedom, defund Planned Parenthood and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” Mr. Reed said Friday. “A 10-year-old audio of a private conversation with a television talk-show host ranks very low on their hierarchy of concerns.”
Ralph Reed hits the nail on the head, but there's no denying this episode could cause real damage to Trump's campaign. The Democrats smell blood in the water. Last week it was taxes. This week it's lewd comments. It's an extremely well-coordinated campaign to distract the voters from Hillary Clinton's manifest disqualifications for the office. It's actually depressing that it's come to this, but then it's American politics in the culture of reality television, social media, and coarsening progressive collectivism.

An Australian imam got attacked by an Egyptian lawyer on television because he suggested women not be forced to wear veils:
An Australian imam was attacked and beaten with a shoe live on Egyptian television after he suggested Islamic women should not be forced to wear a veil in public.

Sydney-based Mostafa Rashid was debating the issue of female dress codes under Islam when his opponent, Egyptian lawyer Nabih al-Wahsh, took off his shoe and chased him around the studio, all the while beating him around the head with his footwear.
Many Muslims consider hitting with shoes a big insult, and the crackpot who did that clearly thought so too. A pure disgrace, and for that he should be made to go barefoot.

The Jewish Press published a guide for this year to what Rosh Hashana is all about, for learning the history and customs practiced. And, the International Business Times tells what meals are eaten to celebrate the holiday.


The Israeli police have uncovered an ISIS gang operating in Jerusalem:
Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service and Jerusalem Police uncovered a terrorist cell run by the Islamic State group in East Jerusalem that planned to carry out attacks across Israel, the Shin Bet cleared for publication Sunday.

Six residents from the Shoafat refugee camp and the neighborhood of Anata are accused of establishing an IS terror cell, attempting to reach Egypt or Syria to join IS fighters, and of planning to carry out terror attacks in Israel on behalf of the group. with attempting to join the Islamic State.

Indictments were filed against four members of the squad Sunday morning at the Jerusalem District Court, while indictments were filed in the Magistrate's Court against two other squad members. The group members face charges of attempting to aid an enemy during war, membership in an illegal organization, membership in a terror organization, and aiding a terror group.

According to the investigation, the members of the cell planned several serious attacks, including mass attacks around the country and kidnappings.

The indictment said the network had been established in 2015 by 29-year-old Ahmad Shweiky, Ha'aretz reports. He is said to have set up a weekly study group that met to study IS ideology.

Members of the group allegedly cut their hair, grew out their beards, and folded the hem of their pants in a fashion customary among Islamic State supporters.

Two of the suspects, Amer Al-Baiyeh and Mohammed Hamid, are said to have travelled to Israel's southern border with Egypt six months ago where they made an unsuccessful attempt to obtain visas to cross into the Sinai peninsula, a hotbed of jihadist activity in Egypt.
I think there's valid grounds for exiling these monsters far outside the boundaries of Israel, to some remote part of the Arabian desert where they're far away from civilization as can be. But for now, they should be locked away underground. Besides, all they want to see is darkness.
