Taking the Word of Rape Apologist Mike Cernovich MSNBC Fires Sam Seder
I talked about this in my last post but to reiterate: to fight the devil you don’t have to be an angel. And honestly, being an angel is probably going to be counterproductive in fighting the devil. It helps to at least understand something of the devil’s thought process.
Let's just get it over with: the new Dem party logo is Charlie Brown once again running to kick that football; the idea that you must be an angel to fight the Devil plays right into the GOP's hands https://t.co/xnxDCijUC6

I’m cynical enough-cynical firstly about the Republican party that this was no surprise at all to me. While the progressives are retroactively demanding Bill Clinton resign and demanding Al Franken resign, the GOP is full throatedly supporting Roy Moore.
I guess some progressives love feeling morally superior. I’d rather defeat the GOP than preen about being better than them; they are such sociopaths it’s just about impossible not to be better than them.
Al Franken has been sullied while there has been just about no vetting of the accusations as opposed to the Harvey Weinstein case.
“Post-Weinstein standards for reporting abuse are getting lower. The Weinstein story itself was meticulously reported based on multiple sources on and off the record as well as legal documentation. Now, rather suddenly, all it took was a single account and a picture.”
Now all you need is someone who voluntarily took a picture with Franken to say she somehow found it inappropriate after the fact and that’s enough. We don’t need any journalistic standards and we don’t need any investigation-what for? The accusation by itself is enough.
The MSM too still doesn’t get it. They are still getting snowed by the Alt Right, by the likes of Pizzagate conspiracist Mike Cernovich.
Remember that Cernovich is who selectively leaked the information about the John Conyers’ settlement.
Just like Putin told Americans to do regarding the DNC leaks, most in the MSM focused not on the source of this leak but on the nature of what was leaked.
Cernovich won for the most part as now even Nancy Pelosi and Jim Clyburn are demanding Conyer’s resignation. Neither are talking about the fact that Cernovich is who selectively leaked this-do you really not think there are Republican Congressmen who also have made payments?-for nakedly partisan reasons.
And Cernovich has just claimed another scalp. After he uncovered a lame joke Sam Seder made in 2009 MSNBC promptly fired Seder.
“MSNBC reportedly cut ties with contributor Sam Seder after far-right date rape apologist Mike Cernovich spread a 2009 tweet in which Seder mocked defenders of Roman Polański, a film director charged with raping a 13-year-old girl in 1977. MSNBC’s decision to fire Seder comes on the one year anniversary of the shooting at Comet Ping Pong, which Cernovich helped spark by relentlessly pushing the “alt-right”-fueled “pizzagate” conspiracy.”
According to a December 4 report by The Wrap, MSNBC “has decided not to renew its contract with contributor Sam Seder after an old tweet emerged … brought to wide attention last month by the pro-Trump journalist and activist Mike Cernovich.”
“Seder explained Cernovich’s “smear involves the willful misinterpretation of a tweet that I posted in 2009” that was criticizing rape apologists, but MSNBC sided with Cernovich, who previously asked “Have you guys ever tried ‘raping’ a girl without using force? Try it. It’s basically impossible. Date rape does not exist,” and claimed“A whore will let her friend ruin your life with a false rape case. So why should I care when women are raped?”
In a tweet, Media Matters Senior Fellow Matt Gertz added that the attacks against Seder ignored that when Seder made the satirical joke in 2009, he may have been responding to the media outlets and personalities that were inappropriately defending Polanski at the time.

So Cernovich who said why should I care if a woman is raped? is given more benefit of the doubt than Sam Seder.
A little more context on just who Cernovich is: he’s obsessed with pedophilia. He slandered Hillary as running a pedophile ring in a DC pizza parlor and nearly got someone killed.
He claims that they’re attacking Flynn because he’s stopping pedophiles.
And he also recently accused Antifa protesters-who have already been slandered to shocking levels-of holding up pro pedophilia signs.
Cernovich’s main efforts on the part of pedophile victims has been to make false accusations of pedophilia against people who haven’t committed pedophilia.
Meanwhile, in the same breath he defends Roy Moore.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
