The liberal, Democrat and media hypocrisy when it comes to Al Franken and his disgusting behavior has been revealed nicely over the last two weeks. Maybe nothing could top this though. Huffington Post contributor G.S. Potter apparently wishes Leeann Tweeden was raped by Al Franken. This G.S. Porter clown also says Leeann Tweeden has not “earned” the “right” to claim she is a victim of Al Franken’s sexual harassment. This is “feminism” in the twenty first century.

And I am sick that people like Leeanne Tweeden feel comfortable enough to take the traumas of the women and children that have been the true victims of sexual violence and used them for her own personal gains and the political goals of the Republican Party.
Leeanne Tweeden is the woman that recently accused Al Franken of sexually violating her at a rehearsal for a USO comedy show in 2006. Her decision to take her story public after 10 years of “silence” has been framed by both the left and the right as a survivor’s act of bravery that demands immediate attention and strict consequences.
Al Franken’s joke didn’t crush her notion of who she was or how she could walk in this world. This joke didn’t give her PTSD or depression or any of the lasting forms of struggle that true rape and assault victims must face minute by minute. It hasn’t informed every relationship she’s had since. And it wasn’t in any way what so ever a form of rape, assault or even harassment.
Leeanne Tweeden was not then and is not now a victim. A very large part of me wishes she had been, though.
