Of course, I’m not referring to the Reich on the right, the Republican Reich. They are virtually always wrong about everything. I’m referring to the Reich on the left, Robert Reich. Robert has a fascinating theory about why women are coming out and exposing their predators.

"This should be the Democrat’s hour – especially if they stand up against the bullies of America, and stand for the millions who have been humiliated, intimidated, disenfranchised, and disempowered." *RR
As most people who grace these pages, we are a Resisting, Protesting, Insisting, Desisting, and yes, strong group of folks here. And...a most respectful group here also. imho.

Well, he has a point. Trump has certainly bullied many people who have not been accustomed to being bullied - and, those who were accustomed to it at some level, he has greatly stepped up the bullying.

As a corollary, this narrative feeds into my concern that they will attempt to discredit more and more individual Democrats, to push bothsiderism and try to discredit the entire party. That, if you will, is something to be vigilant for.

let us hope the Dems can maintain the momentum through elections and nothing "just happens" (ie trumPutin, Trumple-Thin-Skin) creates a war to "get the country behind him" so that Dems do take back the Congress, eventually the White House and then use it to build up for the future.........sadly no guarantees.....Reich is Right On, but now leaning right of course

Thanks Tom .Reich's theory about the backlash by victims of sexual abuse hits the mark ..It's a universal trend.An increasing number of women,and men who were abused as boys ,is coming out now.We don't have your statute of limitations here so the unspeakable bastards who wronged the innocent years ago can still be named put on trial and jailed. This will continue indefinitely as more victims are emboldened by courage and success of others .

“…rude awakening,” would be nice, very nice. Beating Roy Moore would be so wonderful, within this context, especially, but loosing to him would be a blow against the new momentum. Beating Moore would be a blow against Bannon, and I understand that the woman in the Franken situation is close to Bannon.

I'm VERY troubled about all these accusations! CHARLIE ROSE? AL FRANKEN? Convicted without so much as a public hearing?

I think women are fed up with the sexual abuse they have taken and it is about time they speak up.  So far though, Trump seems to be unaffected.  I find it difficult to believe how many women support him.

American revolutionaries needed mad king George to rouse them into action against tyranny, the French had the ineptitude and spendthrift of Louis XVI to activate them and have them take to the streets, especially the French women, and apparently Drumpf has become the figurehead in which all that is bad in a country’s elitism, power hunger, greed and bullying has culminated and unites people in rising against. That will be the only thing history is going to give him credit for.

It is amazing how far the Bully-in-Chief has come politically!  But what is even more amazing is the number of people, particularly women, who support him.

Here, there is so much education going on in schools, community groups etc about bullying.  And there is so much more to do.  As Reich says, and of course he is speaking specifically about American politics, bullying is about “… the growing domination of America by powerful and wealthy men…”, in other words, power and influence in less political terms.

Until people are willing to educate themselves and involve themselves in thinking critically about various issues, there always be the Drumpfs willing to take power away from the individual.  Given that women make up 51% of the population, it is not surprising that this group of citizens is coming out and standing up to some of the bullying.

Robert Reich, like usual, is spot on.

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Our narcissist in charge has always been a bully, but not many paid attention as he wasn't in the spotlight. He has gotten much worse as he's acquired more power. Robert Reich has concisely made it clear why more and more people are sick and tired of being bullied and kicked when they're down. We expect better from our elected officials.
