Racists and Rapists…Oh… Really? O’Reilly and Faux News

Shouldn’t be a surprise that Faux New’s pack of howling racists is also a bun of sexual harassing rapists. A pack of liars and sexual molesters.

BOMBSHELL REPORT REVEALS NEW BILL O’REILLY HARASSMENT ACCUSATIONS

Fox News and O’Reilly have reportedly doled out $13 million to O’Reilly accusers.

A blockbuster new report by The New York Times reveals further details in Fox News’s decades-long internal battle with harassment allegations. The network’s longstanding C.E.O. Roger Ailes resigned in July amid a storm of sexual harassment accusations and lawsuits. Executives at Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, offered assurances that such behavior would no longer be tolerated. (Ailes has vociferously denied all accusations of impropriety.)

But now, a New York Times investigation reveals that Fox News and anchor Bill O’Reilly have spent about $13 million in settlements to female employees who have accused O’Reilly of lewd or otherwise abusive behavior toward them.

According to the Times, three more accusers have been identified since the publication reported on the accusations of two other women in January. Of these women, two of these cases involve claims of sexual harassment on O’Reilly’s part. The third is an accusation of verbal abuse during an outburst in which O’Reilly “berated a young producer in front of newsroom colleagues.”

From the Times:

The women who made allegations against Mr. O’Reilly either worked for him or appeared on his show. They have complained about a wide range of behavior, including verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded like Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating, according to documents and interviews.

The reporting suggests a pattern: As an influential figure in the newsroom, Mr. O’Reilly would create a bond with some women by offering advice and promising to help them professionally. He then would pursue sexual relationships with them, causing some to fear that if they rebuffed him, their careers would stall.

21st Century Fox, Fox News’ parent company, released a statement defending the payouts and noting that none of these women had used the company hotline to accuse a senior employee of the company. The statement confirms that the company has spoken with O’Reilly about the cases.

“21st Century Fox takes matters of workplace behavior very seriously,” the statement said. “Notwithstanding the fact that no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O’Reilly, even anonymously, we have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with Mr. O’Reilly. While he denies the merits of these claims, Mr. O’Reilly has resolved those he regarded as his personal responsibility. Mr. O’Reilly is fully committed to supporting our efforts to improve the environment for all our employees at Fox News.”

With the departure of Megyn Kelly, who decamped to NBC after joining the chorus of Ailes accusers, O’Reilly is Fox News’s biggest star. The Times cited an advertising research firm’s estimated earnings for The O’Reilly Factor: $446 million between 2014 and 2016. He is paid, according to the Times, approximately $18 million a year.

In a statement, O’Reilly suggested accusations of this nature are the price he pays for being a high-profile firebrand.

“Just like other prominent and controversial people, I’m vulnerable to lawsuits from individuals who want me to pay them to avoid negative publicity,” O’Reilly said. “In my more than 20 years at Fox News Channel, no one has ever filed a complaint about me with the Human Resources Department, even on the anonymous hotline. But most importantly, I’m a father who cares deeply for my children and who would do anything to avoid hurting them in any way. And so I have put to rest any controversies to spare my children.”

This is an especially sensitive time for the network, as Fox News is still dealing with the fallout coming after Ailes’ departure. The company is currently under investigation by the office of the United States attorney in the Southern District of New York. (The investigation is heading toward a grand jury without Preet Bharara, who led the office until a dramatic firing in early March.)

Greta Van Susteren, who was a longtime Fox News colleague of O’Reilly before joining MSNBC, tweeted Saturday morning that a situation like this arises from a company wanting to hide that they’d “looked the other way.”

Wendy Walsh, one of the accusers and a frequent guest of O’Reilly’s show, said that the acerbic host withdrew a verbal offer to get her a high position at the network in 2013 after she turned down an invitation to his hotel suite. She told the Times she did not lodge a complaint with Fox News because she wanted to avoid damaging her future career prospects. According to Walsh, he’d invited her to dinner, promised her a contributor position, and then invited her up to his hotel room. When she declined and suggested they go to the hotel bar instead, he became hostile, told her to forget about his offer, and also called her purse ugly.

“I feel bad that some of these old guys are using mating strategies that were acceptable in the 1950s and are not acceptable now,” Walsh said. “I hope young men can learn from this.”

Fox News declined further comment when reached by the Hive, instead pointing to existing statements by O’Reilly and 21st Century Fox.

Sexual Harassment/Assault Lawsuit(s) Back on…Gloria Allred

Looks like the Chumph is going to be in court… Apparently the Chumph’s Jackboots didn’t silence all of the women who were assaulted by the Chumph.

Gloria Allred: Woman to sue Donald Trump for sexual harassment

Shortly after video leaked of Donald Trump boasting about grabbing women by their genitals this past fall, several women came out to publicly accuse the president-elect of sexual harassment.

Now it seems that at least one of these accusers is going ahead by filing a lawsuit against Trump, as lawyer Gloria Allred announced on Tuesday that she will represent a woman who is alleging that Trump “engaged in sexually inappropriate contact with her.”

Allred says that both she and the accuser will hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. ET (11:30 a.m. PT) on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Read Allred’s full statement, via Business Insider’s Allan Smith, below.

Racism More Important Than Rape to Chumph Trolls

One of the more peculiar things about the racists who typically occupy our southern states (not all white southerners are racists by any means, nor are racists isolated to one region of the country) is their terror of a black man having sex with a white woman. A number of southern white republican politicians seems to foist their rather crude opinions on a woman’s right to say no whenever some (usually) rich white kid gets caught raping and abusing a woman…”She deserved it”.

Notice how they call for the hangman’s rope when the evil perpetrator is black.

In the case of the Chumph, southern white evangelical voters would rather vote for a rapist, than someone who isn’t racist. You’d think that “Evangelical” part would give them a lot of heartburn with that – but they seem happy to swallow whatever christianity they profess, which is entirely fungable based on race.

Poll: GOP Voters Not Following Trump-Abandoning Elites

Over the past 48 hours, influential Republicans have greeted the latest batch of lewd, misogynistic remarks from their party’s standard-bearer, Donald Trump, with a mixture of belated revulsion and resistance, prompting withdrawals of support and renewed calls for him to quit the presidential race. However, it would appear that rank-and-file GOP voters are, once again, rejecting these calls from their party’s elites, and are prepared to stick by Trump’s side, at least for now.

Those are the findings of the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll, the first of its kind to attempt to gauge the public impact of Trump’s now-infamous commentary about women with Billy Bush, who was then at “Access Hollywood.” This new poll found that while nearly three-quarters of all respondents had a negative reaction to hearing these remarks, there was a distinctly “partisan element” to the respondents’ reactions.

According to Politico, after watching a video of Trump’s remarks, “10 percent of Republicans said the video gave them a positive feeling,” while only 22 percent of GOP respondents rated the video a “zero (very negative).”  In terms of favorability, “just 48 percent of GOP voters said it makes them feel less favorably toward Trump, while 36 percent said it doesn’t affect their opinions.”

But the most important finding seems to be that GOP voters do not want Trump to quit the race. Per Politico:

“As soon as the news broke, we designed a survey that not only tested voter opinion on Trump’s comments, but also allowed more than 1,500 voters to react in real time to the video and his apology,” said Morning Consult co-founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. “The results show that nearly all voters have heard about the video and most rate it negatively, but Trump’s supporters are not abandoning him right away.”

[…]

But not only do three-quarters of Republican voters want the party to stand behind Trump, there’s a potential warning in the data for GOP officeholders like Sen. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), who announced Saturday she wouldn’t vote for him: Fewer than a third of voters are willing to give greater consideration to a candidate who un-endorses Trump.

It’s one more example of how in this cycle, all of the influence that establishment Republicans have sought to bring to bear on the presidential election has so far come to naught.

Uncle Herman Cain, the Rapist Sez the Chumph Not a Racist

You know things are getting desperate when Herman “Where’s the white wimmin” Cain  crawls out from his thoroughly disgraced rock to endorse you. Cain’s entire platform last election was built around telling racist Tea Baggers they weren’t racist and sexually molesting women.

Herman Cain anoints ‘shucky ducky’ Donald Trump as ‘not a racist’ at Atlanta rally

Appearing at a Donald Trump rally in Atlanta on Wednesday, former GOP hopeful Herman Cain declared that the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump was definitely “not a racist.”

“Aw, shucky ducky!” Cain shouted, warming up the crowd for Trump’s speech at the historic Fox Theatre. “This sounds like a shucky ducky kind of crowd on a shucky ducky kind of day, here to support an aw, shucky ducky kind of candidate!”

Taking a more serious tone, Cain announced that America was at a crossroads.

“This presidential campaign has been blurred by the liberals, blurred by the Democrats, blurred by the progressives — whatever they are — in order to try and label Donald Trump something that he’s not,” the conservative radio host opined. “Just in case the nightly news hasn’t heard or put this comment up there, I want to set the record straight.”

“Allow me to set the record straight about one of the biggest lies out there about Donald Trump — and I hope the liberals and the liberal media is listening — Donald Trump is not a racist!” Cain said, enunciating each syllable for effect.

Why Herman Cain had to disappear as a Republican Presidential candidate…

Tennessee Republican Sponsor of Anti-LGBT Bill…Is a Sexual Predator

Yet another white deviant Republican sexual predator playing holier than thou….

GOP cosponsor of anti-trans bathroom bill is a danger to ‘unsuspecting women’, probe finds

A Republican state lawmaker in Tennessee who is pushing to strip transgender people of bathroom rights has been found to be a danger to “unsuspecting women.”

Last week, Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell exiled state Rep. Jeremy Durham from his offices at the War Memorial Building and limited his access to other areas after Attorney General Herbert Slatery issued a warning that the lawmaker’s behavior posed “a continuing risk to unsuspecting women who are employed by or interact with the legislature.”

Slatery’s office is leading an investigation into multiple sexual harassment complaints against Durham. Although the investigation is not complete, Slatery said that the warning was necessary because of information learned during interviews with 34 different women.

“With few exceptions, the women who related incidents felt they could not report Representative Durham’s behavior because nothing could be done and they did not want to lose their jobs or be considered ‘untrustworthy’ by employers, clients or legislators,” the letter said.

According to the report, women said that they “avoid or refuse to be alone with Representative Durham, a situation which has affected their ability to perform their jobs.”

Speaker Harwell said in a statement that she was moving Durham’s office “to the ground floor of the Rachel Jackson Building, and limiting his access to the Legislative Plaza, War Memorial Building, Rachel Jackson Building, and 2nd floor of the State Capitol for official legislative business only.”

The Advocate reported that Durham is one of the key sponsors of House Bill 2414, which would prevent transgender people from using public bathrooms corresponding to their gender. The bill mirrors anti-LGBT bills that have been recently passed in North Carolina and Mississippi.

Proponents of the bill argue that it would protect women from being harassed. And although 34 women have stepped forward to complain about Durham, there have been no reported cases of transgender people sexually harassing others in public bathrooms.

Larry Flynt Goes After Carson’s Hypocrisy

Black conservative Armstrong Williams is Uncle Ben Carson’t chief adviser. Back in the late 90’s Armstrong was outed by the Gay community in Washington, DC, right after he was sued for sexual harassment of his personal trainer. The case was settled out of court. Armstrong had supported anti-LGBT Republicans, and published anti-LGBT pieces in his column to that point. A lot of ugly about Armstrong hit the mainstream press. The point that he was Gay, wasn’t unknown in DC circles long before this came out – the part about him physically forcing himself on other men being an issue.

During the Bushit Administration Armstrong was caught planting favorable articles in his then syndicated Opinion pieces, for cash. The Bushit Administration paid him large sums of money to support their positions favorably. Armstrong is your typical black conservative scumbag, who when you look behind the thin veneer of respectability, has a lot of ugly to hide. Which makes the “Holier than thou”, supposedly anti-gay Carson’s relationship with Armstrong a bit strange…

 

Hustler Has A $1 Million Offer Out On Ben Carson’s Adviser For Proof Of Man-On-Man Harassment

In 1998, Armstrong Williams was accused of sexually harassing his personal trainer.

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt is offering up to $1 million to anyone who can prove that a top adviser to Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is guilty of male-on-male sexual harassment.

In an open letter published Monday in The Las Vegas Review-Journal, Flynt vows to fork over between “$50,000 and $1 million” to anyone with proof that the long-standing claims against Armstrong Williams, who is also a conservative radio personality, are true, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In 1998, Williams was accused of sexual harassment by his former personal trainer, Stephen Gregory, on more than 50 separate incidents, SF Gate reported. Gregory claimed that Williams had “repeatedly kissed him on the mouth, grabbed his buttocks and genitals, and climbed into bed with him on business trips.” When Gregory rejected his advances, Williams allegedly fired him, according to the report.

The case was ultimately settled out of court, but thanks to Flynt, Williams’ sordid past has come back to haunt him and his new boss. Carson, of course, has beenoutspoken in his opposition to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community — a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Flynt, as he pointed out in the open letter.

“Dr. Carson, you claim to be an advocate of traditional family values,” the open letter reads. “You have opposed same-sex marriage, accusing marriage equality advocates of ‘directly attacking the relationship between God and his people.’ Yet, you have partnered with an accused sexual predator.”

Deeming Carson “a hypocrite,” Flynt calls upon the candidate to disavow “any and all” relationships with Williams before the GOP debate on Dec. 15, or else he’ll follow through the offer to “anyone who can provide confirmable information” regarding the claims.

There’s apparently been no word from the Carson camp just yet. Still, we’ll be anxious to see how this shakes out, especially since Carson threatened to leave the Republican party just days ago.

Herman Cain – Would Accuser #5 Please Step Forward…

One of the reasons Herman Cain isn’t presidential material has been shown graphically in his mishandling of the entire secual harassment scandal. Somehow, Cornbread thinks he’s going to prove all these women liars – despite their having legal papers in hand.

Herman – Your dumb, ignorant, corporate-rapist ass is toast! Thank your fellow Republican candidates for sticking the knife in your back – but it is all your fault for being too arrogant, and stupid to pull the knife out.

Fifth woman raises questions about Cain’s behavior

A former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain asked her to help arrange a dinner date for him with a female audience member following a speech he delivered nine years ago.

Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.

“And after the seminar was over,” Donella told The Washington Examiner, “Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?'”

Donella, who no longer works for USAID, said they were suspicious of Cain’s motives and declined to set up the date. Cain responded, “Then you and I can have dinner.” That’s when two female colleagues intervened and suggested they all go to dinner together, Donella said.

Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner, though he did order two $400 bottles of wine and stuck the women with the bill, she said.

The next time the women heard from Cain was Christmas, when he sent them his gospel CD.

Donella said she felt it was important to describe her encounter with Cain after hearing more serious allegations of sexual harassment brought by other women.

“I couldn’t swear that he had some untoward intentions, but we all thought his tone was suspect and we didn’t feel comfortable putting him in touch with that woman,” Donella recalled.
