Prediction: Within a month, the ratfuckers are going to "Me Too" Michael Avenatti.
I don't know how they will do it. I don't know much about the guy. But the Smearmasters always find a way.
Maybe they'll find (or invent) the log of some sexy chat he had on AOL in 1997 -- a chat in which he played online BDSM games with some random female he never physcially met. Maybe said female now needs to have her home mortgage paid off. Maybe she will claim that Avenatti just started to say the most horrible
things to her without her consent. She was shocked beyond words. She has been traumatized ever since. Years of therapy. Avenatti should pay for her therapy bill.
After this news comes out, events will follow a predictable course. With a telling immediacy, Kos and DU will be flooded with posts claiming "He's gotta go!" That's the catch-phrase commonly employed whenever Me Too fixates on a new target. Avenatti is, of course, not a public servant -- but that won't stop the "liberals" from repeating the phrase "He's gotta go!"
Behind the scenes, dozens of voices will quietly advise Avenatti: "Even if you didn't do it, just admit to it anyways. It'll soon go away." Like Al Franken, Avenatti will issue a statement which tries to split the difference, simultaneously conveying the messages "I'm very sorry" and (sotto voce
) "Actually, these charges are bullshit." For a few days, the scandal will seem to disappear.
But it won't, because Woman 2 and Woman 3 (and perhaps Women 4 through 17) are waiting in the wings. The ratfuckers will pay off as many mortgages as it takes.
George Washington University Law School will rename its "Michael Avenatti award" (which it has bestowed since 2003). Then Stormy will get another lawyer. She will tell TV interviewers that Avenatti "manipulated" her, and that he was no better than any of the awful, manipulative men-monsters who dominate in the adult film industry. And after she recites her lines, she'll be handed the keys to her new mortgage-free home.
Watch it happen.
Watch Trump win.
As long as Democrats care more about demonizing straight white males than about defeating Trumpism, these tricks will prove infernally effective.
