Hollywood liberals can’t even admit they’ve been acting like predatory, sexist pigs without finding some way to politicize and virtue-signal. And so, we get news that some bigtime showbiz players have created “the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace,” which carries the catchy acronym of CSHAEW (Gesundheit.)
Their stated goal is “to lead the entertainment industry toward alignment in achieving safer, fairer, more equitable and accountable workplaces — particularly for women and marginalized people.” (Wonder how women feel about being lumped in with “marginalized people”?) In other words, they’ve created a powerless new PR organ to advance the notion that Hollywood, like Congress, is finally going to follow the same workplace laws against sexual harassment that every other industry has had to comply with for years.
So much for the virtue-signaling, now the politicizing: the commission will be chaired by…drum roll...Anita Hill! That’s right: they had to get the most high-profile liberal accuser of a black conservative in history, and one of the most controversial. Seriously, was there nobody they could hire whose name is not synonymous with the widespread suspicion that questionable, unsupported, long-ago allegations of sexual impropriety might be used to torpedo an opponent’s career? Or is the bubble they live in so thick that they assume Prof. Hill’s reputation for feminist sainthood is universally held by all?
Maybe they should have done a little research into her past comments before signaling their virtue by hiring her. They might have discovered that her support for female accusers of powerful men is, to put it mildly, “situational”…
PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT. I READ THEM!
