The firing of Matt Lauer, from whatever network he spread his lies from, has caused many people to cry that this is America, is this the type of justice we want here?  Is this a country to be proud of?  Where you can be fired just because someone makes an accusation?  I agree that this is not justice in the legal sense of the word, but it is probably justice in the truest sense of the word.

In a perfect world, scumbags that abuse others would get what they deserve, and there would be no delay.  Biblical justice would have him being forced to do something humiliating or degrading for the victim or victims for the appropriate amount of time (such as being their slave for seven years or so).  Why do we think it is justice when we send someone away to prison for stealing from someone else? Where is the real justice, of having to repaying the victim 5 to 10 times what you stole from them? But I digress.

I am not one who thinks that you can stop men from being men just by saying “stop being men.”  Men are preprogramed to want to spread their seed. It is our nature.  Our burden, as it turns out, is to control that instinct and appetite.  But as long as men want sex and have something that some women want, those women that are willing to dangle sex or even just the promise of it in front of the men that can provide what those women want, then this kind of abuse will continue.

Well, as Rev. Wright said, the chickens are coming home to roost. The coastal elites and the left in this country has felt superior to all the rest of us in flyover country for as long as we have made them feel that way by putting them up on these pedestals.

But being fired is not a criminal proceeding. It should be the right of any employer to fire anyone for any reason. So if this guy becomes an embarrassment to his employer, then he should be able to fire him.  I am guessing that he, like so many others in this industry, has been using his position and power to take advantage of others for a long, long time now. And it most likely has been well known and simply ignored as “It is just the way things are done.” He is bringing in the money/ratings; he is the star; we can’t afford to lose him; he is a cash cow; he’s the boss; he will destroy my career. And the list of excuses goes on and on; so they look the other way.

Well, as Rev. Wright said, the chickens are coming home to roost. The coastal elites and the left in this country has felt superior to all the rest of us in flyover country for as long as we have made them feel that way by putting them up on these pedestals.  Media, athletes, politicians, professors, the rich — all of those groups are raised up as something better. Well, they are not. They also are not worse. They are human and without God in their lives, they will fill that void with, start a list: sex, drugs, power, attention, or whatever they crave or desire It is just that we have given them the means to pull it off in a more grandiose style than the common man.  But that is what “our superiors” and the left wants; empty vessels are a lot easier to steer, and the more of these they create, the more they can control the rest of us.

    Excellent essay, Pat.

    Wow. Miss even half a news cycle and you miss a lot. This is the first I’ve heard of Lauer biting the dust. An article here says he told the perky Katie Couric on set with the cameras rolling, “Keep bending over like that. It’s a nice view”.

    I’m really confused here. I had always thought it was the libtards who were for treating women with respect while those mean ol’ Republicans were engaged in a “war on women”?

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. While they’re burning their own house down, don’t ask me to man the bucket brigade unless it’s with buckets full of gasoline.

  2. Timothy Lane says:

    NBC says it found out Monday night, but apparently one news source had been working the story for months — and says NBC knew it. I suspect this was indeed one of those “open secrets” — and when it turned out it was going to go public, they had to act. Some think this is also why they originally passed on the Weinstein story.

    • pstmct says:

      I would be willing to bet that they knew long before Monday Timothy, it probably is a clause in his unwritten contract. I guess he when a bit to far.

  3. Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

    It is hard not to enjoy the sight of the left devouring themselves. It is particularly fun watching the leftist denizens of New York and California, i.e. those despoilers of the culture in this country, being publicly and unwillingly exposed for the scumbags and liars they are.

    They appear to have had no problem with exposure of a different kind.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      It is a delight indeed, Mr. Kung, to see these Leftists devouring themselves. It’s probably good advice though to not stand too close to the flames. I’m sure somewhere I’ve insulted a woman, intentionally or otherwise. (Hillary’s a bitch. How’s that?) And in the case of Lauer, again, we don’t know what kind of working relationship those two have. I’ve been in many places where women are very comfortable with this kind of banter and give as well as they take.

      I don’t know what reaction, if any, has been given in response to this by the perky Katie Couric. Maybe Matt is as ugly on the inside as his politics are on the outside. Maybe it’s a nothingburger. I have no way of knowing from afar. Witch-hunts, of course, don’t require fairness, context, or introspection.

      But as long as they are mainly consuming their own, the best approach is to just stay out of their way and maybe have a few laughs.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        I am somewhat surprised at the age of most of these guys. They are in their 50’s and 60’s, by which time most of us have learned a little more self-control or at least have lower testosterone levels.

        Still, I have never sneaked up on a woman and pinched her behind or grabbed her boobs. That doesn’t mean I have always been the perfect gentleman, but there are some things anyone with a lick of sense or self-esteem does not do. Does anyone in his right mind believe such behavior endears him to a woman? These guys must be idiots.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Her Perkiness didn’t like Lauer, and complained — several years ago — that he regularly pinched her buttocks.

    • pstmct says:

      I agree, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.

  4. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    Pat, I have a question for you: Do you think what we see occurring — I don’t know what to call it …notice that there is no “gate” suffix fashioned for this scandal, no “Harveygate” — is about women putting an end to the sexual revolution? To some extent, the sexual revolution was always about increasing opportunities for men by making as many women as loose as they could…as loose at most men are naturally…under the guise of freeing women.

    I’m not saying some new Puritanism is developing, although that could be so. And this could be at the very least another extension of the power of feminism. But at this point, there seems to be some kind of realignment taking place. What’s your overall opinion on what this is and where we are going?

    • pstmct says:

      Well Brad, this will not be a politically correct answer, but in general, women and emasculated leftist men are great emotor’s, (probably not a real word but you get the point),and they are great at holding grudges for extended periods of time, women are very tribal, they just love to hold and play the victim card. But again, in general, they are not linear logical thinkers; they are reactors, so when you combine those attributes you get this kind of reaction. Emotion, anger, long held grudges for men taking them up on their innuendos’ of sex for some favors. That gives them a victim card that most real men and right wing nut jobs, (such as myself), can get behind and say hell yeah, women should not be abused like this, (what if it were my daughter, I cut off something very important of that guy’s!).
      Some women have this need to have their cake and eat all of it too, in this scandal they can, they just do not realize or care that it might come back around and bite their left cheek just a bit harder than they would have liked, (that whole linear logical thinking problem).
      I am sure that all this self-esteem crap and femi-nazism have given them a warped view of reality, leftist men are still men, or should I say pigs. But leftist men, for the most part, are too smart by half, they deny God exist and without Him and His truths and morals, their world falls apart. Men are free to be the pig dogs that they want to be; but therein lies the rub, these women that are free to be sluts just like men and use sex to get what they want, (just like the men wanted them to), are now having nature kick into gear and tell them this is not good for me and as a bonus, she gets to kick that guy who used her in the balls without any condemnation coming back on her, (good luck with that). Leftist smeftist, she gets to win baby. And in the end does she care more about her sista’s or the left? It’s the sista’s tribe all day long, else Hillary would have only gotten about 25% of the vote.
      I do not see this as any kind of realignment, not short term anyway, but I think it really is the putrid polluted poultry returning to the nest.

      • pstmct says:

        Maybe I am just a bit bitter because I was falsely accused many years ago, but that is a different story.

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        Thanks for the stab at an explanation, Pat. Bitter is okay, as long as it’s not a lifestyle choice…which would then make you a Democrat.

        Trickling into The Daily Drama is the idea that women use sex for their purposes too. But for the moment, women seem to be very successful in another power grab.

        On the lighter side, I just read where ESPN fired another 100 employees or so. Too bad it can’t start at the top where it’s really needed. This is a rotten time of the year for worker bees to lose their jobs, especially because much of the fault lies at the top. When the libtards at ESPN stopped being the “Entertainment and Sports Programming Network” and began being “Emasculated Sissy PC Naggers” it hurt their ratings.

        Still, enjoy this feeding frenzy of feminist crocodiles eating the libtard men. Yes, of course, there are more than a few bad men mixed into this. It’s been a long time since I just took my penis out for some air in front of a woman in the office in hopes she’d be turned on. Actually, I’ve never done that. But it just shows you how much we miss out on on the other side of the aisle.

        And, seriously, we should remember that it has always been the case that Leftism is a redemptive religion. If you walk their stations of the cross (abortion, feminism, white privilege/oppressors, black victimhood, etc.) this then proves you are a good fellow. And with the villains firmly established, anything you do can’t be bad, by definition. It would threaten their whole smug world view to suppose otherwise. And if you do something a little dodgy, it can and should be forgiven (especially for those in power or prominence) because you don’t want to hurt the cause, and you certainly don’t want to give the Republicans or Rush Limbaugh any fuel.

        For whatever reason (and I’d like to understand it), that dynamic has been shattered.

        • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

          Since we moderns seem to have forgotten the ways of nature, I think it should be pointed out that throughout history men have, by and large, used sex for ….getting sex! There are no ulterior motives. It is pretty straight forward.

          Because women understand this, they have always used sex to get what they want, be it power, money, a new car, a role in the big film, whatever.

          • Timothy Lane says:

            So men and women use each other. There was a short cartoon on that subject in MAD Magazine many years ago.

            • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

              So men and women use each other.

              That be the case.

              But in today’s insane environment, one/a male will soon have to ask a woman to sign a waiver to insure one is not brought up on charges.

              I can see it now, a standard template with blanks where one fills in the date, female’s name and specific amorous approaches the male is allowed to attempt without a woman having recourse to the law. Just be sure not to have the phrase, “without prejudice” on the template.

  5. Steve Lancaster says:

    Ok what did NBC know and wgen did they know it?

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Probably everything. They certainly had to know about Katie the Perky’s problems with Lauer, and it’s likely he was doing that to a lot of women and an “open secret” at NBC.

      • Steve Lancaster says:

        Katie said in an interview about 5 years ago when asked about Matt’s most irritating habit, “he keeps pinching my butt”, everyone thought she was joking.

  6. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    I’ve lived a rather tamer life than most, so I don’t have that many good stories to tell.

    But in regards to this general subject matter, I remember about 20 years ago when I was working in a small ad agency. A nice-looking girl comes in to show me her portfolio of artwork. She’s sitting across the table from me. It’s likely summer. All she has on is a blouse.

    And, as it turns out, that’s all she had on. I was leafing through her portfolio from across the conference table and she leans over to point out some feature of some piece of art. And there they were as god intended them to be. Young, firm, ripe, and both of them. With no bra, her low-necked shirt revealed all.

    And it didn’t take me long to figure out that that was the intention. Had I been a Harvey Weinstein (and I sort of regret not being like that, at least some of the time), we might have finished that interview on the conference room table and she getting the job.

    And sex — along with talent, hard work, perseverance, and just plain dumb luck — is thrown into the mix of our social fabric. It just is. The people who had publicly foresworn The Scarlet Letter, McCarthyism, black-listing, and all that other supposedly “right wing” intolerant stuff are now in the thick of doing it. No sense of proportion or reality. It’s just “A witch, a witch!”

    There are some bad boys out there who more than deserve a comeuppance. But the suddenness and volume of the latest witch trials reveals an underlying cause. Women, like men of old, are now using sex (if only as supposedly weak, un-liberated, docile, helpless victims) as a weapon.

    Welcome to the new. Same as the old.

  7. oldguy says:

    This is great! I wonder who is pushing this pogrom against the Democrats, Hollywood and the MSM? About time the shoe was on the other foot.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      Ann Coulter has an amusing read on the subject: Sex in America, Part2

      As a consequence, the rule on sexual assault at least since Teddy Kennedy drowned Mary Jo Kopechne was this: Liberals were free to grope, rape and drown women and to smear them and their defenders. But conservatives, lacrosse players, fraternity members, pompous Fox News hosts and other objects of liberal hate would be destroyed at the slightest hint of any sexual impropriety, whether true or comically false.

      What didn’t matter: The nature of the charge, credibility of the accuser, use of force, contemporaneous witnesses, photographic evidence, DNA evidence …

      What mattered: Who’s the accused?

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Yes, it’s a matter of whose side you’re on — pure tribalism.n There’s a good big of that on the right, but n0t as much — if only because they don’t control the synoptic media.

        • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

          At this point in the game, a healthy dose of tribalism on our side is just what the doctor ordered. Let the Left consume themselves while we sit back with the figurative cigar and watch.

          Perhaps our role then (outside of and above The Daily Drama) is to ponder just what is going on. Mona Charen, like myself, sees some possible realignments occurring. She deems it:

          Our 50-year excursion into sexual excess may yet provoke a counter-revolution. Women are clearly finding their voices, and men (at least many men) are recognizing how dishonorable and grubby this behavior is.

          It’s certainly possible that this is some kind of reaction (certainly not a conscious or choreographed one…so far as we know) to The Sexual Revolution. Whether women can figure out that feminism and “equality” itself are firmly attached to this revolution is a good question. Perhaps they are initiating a new one, as I suspect. Perhaps we could call it something like: The Women Never Lie About Sex But Men Are All Potential Predators and Keep Our Free Stuff and Preferential Treatment Coming or Else We’ll Accuse You of Something Revolution.

          Granted, that’s hard to fit onto a bumper sticker. They’ll need a new name. Any suggestions?

  8. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    Mona Charen has some good thoughts in Is Feminism the Answer to Sexual Harassment?

    Women are often victims, but they are not angels. Yes, powerful men abuse their positions to get sex. But any serious reckoning with sexual misbehavior has to take account of the women who use their sexuality to gain advantage, too. Just as everyone knows men who have harassed, they also know women who have slept their way to the top.

    There are other reasons that feminism provides no safe harbor for those wishing to find the moral high ground on questions of sexual propriety. Feminists damaged their credibility by rallying around Bill Clinton — a partisan taint that persists, as we’ve seen with Nancy Pelosi’s late and grudging condemnation of John Conyers. Feminists cannot pose as impartial champions of women if they’re only moved by the plight of those victimized by Republicans.

    Beyond partisanship, the feminist record is unhelpful. From the inception of “second wave” feminism in the 1960s, the movement embraced sexual “liberation” as part of women’s liberation. Feminists weren’t so much upset that some men behaved like pigs as they were that women couldn’t do the same without loss of reputation. It was the “double standard” they took aim at, not sexual license itself . . .

    Like the new left they emerged out of, feminists joined hands with sexual revolutionaries in rejecting all of the old sexual mores — including marriage. “Destroy the patriarchy,” they chanted. They agreed with the Playboy Foundation (a contributor to the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund) that linking sex with morality at all was an outdated idea.

    And so professional feminists actually helped midwife the loose sexual culture we have today. Arguably, this culture has permitted men to behave even more shabbily toward women than the old mores did.

    The really hilarious part of this article is when Charen writes:

    So the friendly morning host with the warm smile was a serial sexual predator? He had a secret lock installed on his office door operated by a button under his desk like a Bond villain?
