As appalling as Trump’s immigration proposal is the Democrats really are going to blow this. And it is going to be because of how horrible the Democrats are. Here is Dick Durbin:
The silver lining, since hearing this I now understand why Democrats are against Chained CPI. It reminds African Americans of being chained up on plantations.
Dick, there are 100 better reasons to use a more precise and nuanced term in place of “chain migration” and you certainly did not pick one of those 100. Your job is not to convince African-Americans or other minorities that we need to keep “chain migration”. Your job is to convince the white folk, like Trump, who are a few generations removed – but products of “chain migration” – that such a policy is good for America.
Clinton: Well my husband is a well known sexual harasser and I’ve put up with him all these years. The campaign staff will have to similarly deal with Strider.
I always found the holy rollers to be the worst of the bunch. If I read this correctly, they did take action on his transgressions. Typical practice in industry.
“The woman was moved out of the office where she had been working with Strider, one source said, and the faith adviser was punished by having his pay docked for several weeks, having his title changed and being required to undergo sexual harassment training.”
“The woman was moved out of the office where she had been working with Strider”
Punish the victim of sexual harassment. Standard HRC practice.
“After the 2008 campaign, Strider was tasked to lead Correct the Record, an independent group that looked to rebut claims about Clinton as she prepared for her 2016 presidential run.”
You think Strider got that position without the help of HRC?
Non sequitur to your last comment.
1. The lady was moved out of the office where she had been working with Strider.
2. The faith adviser was punished by having his pay docked for several weeks.
3. Had his title changed which usually means he was demoted.
4. Was required to undergo sexual harassment training, a normal practice.
There was nothing that says the lady was punished and you are making things up. Personnel handled it just shy of him being fired. Typically, the next step would be his being fired.
At least one person on the left gets it. run75441 clearly doesn’t.
You deliberately failed to state all the actions taken with Mr. Strider in your 5:33PM statement that I stated earlier. Are you lying about the totality of the actions taken with Mr. Strider? Demotion, elimination of pay, and going to sexual harassment classes is adequate punishment initially. There was not indication of his being in a position of power in which he could have her fired. Companies do have that power to decide what course of action to take as long as it is fair an consistent. In the end he was fire. There is a huge difference between the actions of Weinstein, Strider, and Franken.
Interesting you bring up only the actions of the left . . .
I see that HRC slapped Strider on the wrist. If it is not disturbing to you that the victim was the one assigned to a new office and not the perpetrator, well then maybe we should put rape victims in prison so the rapist cannot rape the victim again.
“Interesting you bring up only the actions of the left . . .”
I don’t need to bother bringing up the right’s transgressions because the ideological wh0r3s that post on this website do a sufficient job in that regard. But lying through omission and purposefully excluding the transgressions of their false prophets, well the posters here are guilty as charged.
There was no slap on the wrist, there was measure response to Strider’s transgressions. Again you fail to mention what else took place with Strider. Are you lying Jay? The rest of your comment is a non sequitur.
What about this?:
“After hearing of the complaint, Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle and other senior aides urged Clinton to fire Strider, but Clinton declined to dismiss him and kept him on…..”
We do not work on the basis of opinion. We work on the basis of measured responses as dictated by policy in business. Clinton made a measured response the same as what would be foun in most business situations.
