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.
