I’ve said very little about the Tara Reide stuff because as a survivor I wont join in public attacks on anyone claiming to be a survivor, even someone who isn’t credible. But the scum gleeful coopting & weaponizing the language of survivors and MeToo are horrible pieces of shit.
It shouldn’t surprise me that shameless ghouls are delegitimizing the rhetoric of victims of sexual assault for their own partisan uses, but it’s infuriating & repellent. There is no concern for survivors in their words, they’re simply weaponizing others trauma to harm an enemy.
Coopting the language of the oppressed is a common tactic of rightwing trolls, so watching folks “on the left” do it tells me a lot about them.
