We’ve watched as Democrats exposed a gruesome double standard. The folks who said they “believe all women” who claim sex abuse have all but ignored Tara Reade—who says she was assaulted by Joe Biden. The woman appeared on Fox News to discuss her story and dropped the gauntlet on the Democratic candidate. She is willing to go the distance to tell her story.
According to Tara Reade, when Joe Biden was a senator, he sexually assaulted her. The woman feared coming out with the story back then, knowing it might ruin her. Only now, after many years, has she come out with her allegations.
Since she first broke the news in March, several pieces of information have come out to reinforce her story. Several friends, family members, and neighbors have gone on record to say they knew about the assault. A clip from an episode of Larry King Live—where a mother says her daughter was assaulted by a politician—seems to back Reade’s claim.
I’m sure to the average person, there is enough evidence to warrant an investigation of some kind. When Brett Kavanaugh was accused of attempted assault, there was a Senate hearing, despite the utter lack of hard evidence.
Yet to date, many figures within the Democratic Party have refused to show Reade support. The same people who said we have to believe women when they come forward almost seem to be pretending this is not happening. Only a few liberals have admitted, in recent days, that Reade should be at least “listened to.” They still come short of demanding answers from Biden.
Now, Tara Reade herself is willing to put it all on the line.
Tara Reade has publicly stated her willingness to testify under oath regarding her sexual assault allegation against former Vice President Joe Biden…
Speaking with Fox News, Reade criticized the media and leaders of #MeToo for turning sexual harassment and assault into a partisan issue, demanding that people actually look into the veracity of her claims.
“Why have you made sexual assault and sexual harassment a partisan issue?” Reade said. “Why aren’t you looking at the veracity of my claim, looking at that I’m willing to go under oath, that I made a police report, that I worked for Joe Biden?” [Source: Daily Wire]
Reade called out the leaders of the so-called #MeToo movement for turning her claims into a “partisan issue.” She condemned liberals for ignoring her story, accusing them of trying to protect a “leading Democrat.” She said a woman should be able to have her voice heard without “losing your job.”
Reade reinforced her story by saying she was willing to go under oath to testify to her claims. Right now, there appears to be no official interest in her story. We know of no investigative body actively looking into these claims. Remember, the Senate held a televised series of hearings over the flimsy, unverifiable claims against Brett Kavanaugh.
Now we have a woman accusing a presidential candidate of assault and… nothing? Why isn’t anyone in our government demanding answers? Why aren’t Democrats and Republicans calling for a congressional hearing?
They hold hearings over anything, for crying out loud. They’ve held hearings over the sound of TV commercials, but they won’t hold a hearing to confront these credible accusations?
Considering the beating many institutions have taken since the #MeToo movement, you’d think politicians would want to salvage their reputations. But staying silent only further proves that our D.C. leaders don’t really care about victims. They’d rather protect their establishment elitists at all costs.
The longer D.C. goes without responding to this, the more we’ll be forced to believe Biden’s guilty. That won’t go well for him, come November.
