My #WalkAway Story Series is a bigger and more long term project for A Lady of Reason, and it’s all about YOU! This is your big chance at getting your voice heard and your own story out there! For many closeted conservatives, afraid for our livelihood, social networks, family connections, even physical safety now, being stuck in the closet can be extremely isolating and it’s easy to feel like it’s you against the world sometimes! I certainly feel that way! By sharing our stories collectively, I hope to give a voice to you, my dear readers and followers here on WordPress and Social Media, to show each other camaraderie and that in fact, we’re NOT alone, just in the shadows. Well folks, it’s time to come out of the shadows and into the light! The “silent majority” is at least half of our nation, so you’re not truly alone. Come and hear others, and add your own voice, your own story to the mix, of what it’s like being a conservative in an increasingly Leftist country! Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or direct message me at @aladyofreason1 on Twitter to add YOUR story!!! 🙂 I’ll send you the standard question list, or you can just write it free form as a narrative…
This #WalkAway story comes from John, who wants to use his voice to expose the witch hunt mentality of the #metoo movement and the Left against men! In addition, he generously provided his story too for my #Walk Away story series!
Tell me about yourself briefly. When did you become conservative? If you were ever liberal, what made you walk away?
I’ve always been conservative even ran for Congress in 2000 as a Republican soon after I filed for office is when attack against the woman,my significant other took place. My parents were liberals, all my siblings are liberals. They have always been radical in their beliefs. They all believe the ends justifies the means. I’ve learned majority of lefties think and act this way. My family declared something is very wrong with me to be a Conservative. I’m Conservative first, Republican second.
Do you feel at all afraid to be openly conservative? If so, how do you cope with being closeted?
I don’t hide my conservative beliefs, and have no problem sharing them or defending them. P.C. was and is destructive to our society and I’ve never participated in it. I took some heat in 2000 for not being PC. My response was always,PC was designed to keep people from being truthful by attacking them for doing so,as to protect agenda of the left. I will be truthful and not lie in order to not upset whomever over whatever.
I believe the success of this which largely depends on deprivation of due process gave birth to the #metoo attacks. Tactics are the same, women are declared innocent and pure, men evil and guilty. Once accusations made, innocent or not the man loses credibility. People begin to doubt the man, all based on unproven claims. This is not right it must be stopped, the curtain of corruption must be pulled back and lay bare the dirty deeds that have been done for nearly 30 years that all started with VAWA. VAWA has a profit motive as well. DOJ disperses funds to states for every restraining order issued, states then share these funds with pet programs, law enforcement and courts. This is why state statutes that govern when an order is to be issued are ignored. There is a money motivated factor as well as a political factor for automatically issuing one, every time one is asked for. They also are “kryptonite ” to the credibility, future of the man and a tool of criminals to be used against any witness they believe will, or have reported their crimes. This tool is very powerful. The #metoo project and it is a project, has eliminated need for a freely issued “tool” to come from a judge, and allows any woman to make any claim against any man expecting the man to cave with hopes he can salvage his life and protect his family.
One more thing, while an “order” is in effect, a man cant own a firearm or use one, this presents a problem for our military. There has also been efforts to prevent any man who ever had an order “tool” against him from owning a firearm, this is a back door way of disarming millions of men. Divorce attorneys now, often recommended that women first get 1 of these freely issued “tools” against her husband,prior to filing for divorce.
It automatically destroys his credibility, causes him to be removed from the home by law enforcement, and often causes man loss of his job, because employer, like most believes man must have done something wrong or an order would not have been issued.
The man has zero standing in divorce court, if man fights for custody joint or otherwise, if he fights for anything, the woman then calls police to claim her husband violated the order she does not have to prove it,the cops dutifully arrest the man without probable cause, for most men at that point they are done,for now, he understands his wife can lie at will, and cops with zero probable cause will arrest him. Some men spend years in prison over this, again zero evidence is required. The claim of the woman is all that is required. I can’t find that in Constitution or Bill of Rights.
The rule of law has been ignored, abused for decades, to promote and protect leftists and their agenda, and never doubt, or forget that to leftists the ends do justify the means. Our laws are being subverted again on a worldwide stage. We have elevated women so high in this country, you need a telescope to see them. Questioning the claim makes anyone a target. I want to help expose and end this behavior, tactic, strategy by the left, of attacking and destroying men or anyone in power that don’t agree with leftists agenda.
You’re right, John! The #metoo hysteria only hurts women, not helps, by casting them as helpless victims, and of course hurts men by demonizing them as guilty in the eyes of many! To the Left, men are only jerks and potential rapists! You have so much courage saying this as a man, as despite the backlash myself and other women receive for criticizing #metoo, men are far more likely to be branded as rape apologists right off the bat! Keep speaking out and getting the facts out there! You’re always welcome to speak out more on this blog! #NotMe
