The left used to protect sexual predators like Bill Clinton and Roman Polanski while mercilessly going after conservatives like Justice Clarence Thomas with false allegations of sexual misconduct.

Today, accusations of “sexual assault” and misconduct against liberal men are finally seeing the light of day.

Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood liberal darlings have been exposed. Producer Brett Ratner and music mogul Russell Simmons face new allegations of sexual assault and misconduct. “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host Ryan Seacrest took the pre-emptive move of denying an accusation before it went public. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., was outed as a creep for his lewd behavior toward Leeann Tweeden.

For decades, feminists and their supporters in the Democratic Party have been engaged in a scorched-earth strategy to destroy white, Christian, conservative men with power. While they still engage in political attacks and target good men like Judge Roy Moore, they’re also taking down their own.

But the left doesn’t really care about truth, nor women for that matter. Most don’t care about due process, because for them, it’s not about justice – it’s about removing men from positions of power, dividing men and women and exploiting that division to advance their leftist political agenda.

In this highly charged environment, Christian men and women must step back so we don’t get caught up in the emotions and hysteria stirred up by feminists and the media. We need to discern and judge these allegations on a case-by-case basis.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Liberal Democrats aided and abetted in the cover-up of Bill Clinton’s countless affairs and sexual assaults. They covered up his reported rape of Juanita Broaddrick. The mainstream press along with Hillary Clinton viciously smeared Broaddrick, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Monica Lewinsky as “bimbos” to discredit them. Even now, most in the mainstream media won’t acknowledge that these women exist.

Efforts by radical feminists and LGBT activists to divide men and women are working, and some men are giving up on women. There’s an online community of men called MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), which cautions men against romantic relationships with women, especially marriage.

According to Wikipedia, MGTOW believes there is a systemic bias against men, including double standards in gender roles, bias against men in family courts, lack of concern for men falsely accused of rape and lack of consequences for their accusers.

While this is an extreme example and these men need to forgive and drop their anger, their overreaction is a backlash to the extremism of man-hating feminists.

The reality is that men and women are being set up. With the rise of radical feminism, the respect and deference for women has declined. For decades, men have been encouraged by movies, Playboy, MTV and pop culture to view women as sex objects. And a growing number of boys and girls are being raised in broken families without good examples of how to relate to the opposite sex.

Today, strippers are glamorized in songs and movies. Pornography has become mainstream. Everybody and their mama has a sex tape. And Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton have used it to catapult themselves to fame and fortune. So it’s not surprising that young men see women as sex objects, and young women emulate Kardashian and Hilton.

Young men and women are also being miseducated in gender study courses in college where crazy ideas about “toxic masculinity “and “gender neutrality” are being shoved down their throats. They’re being taught that men are evil and the patriarchy must be destroyed. That women can and should be able to do whatever men do (including sleeping around) without being judged. It’s not about encouraging women to be their best; it’s about pushing women to compete with men and degrade themselves in the process.

So-called “feminists” like Amber Rose promote an annual “Slut Walk” where scantily clad and naked women strut around in public under the guise of empowering women.

In Berkeley, California, the city council is looking at amending its nudity laws to allow women to go topless in public to give women “equal rights” to men, who are free to be shirtless in public.

The very people on the left who’ve encouraged women to loosen their sexual mores are the ones who scream the loudest about women being objectified and sexually harassed.

There are unhappy and truly evil people who want to turn men and women against one another. Let the leftists destroy each other. But as men and women of God, we need to step back and not rush in like fools until we can see the full picture.
