Comments on: Questions for Strauss-Kahn raise more for world Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: BajaArizona Mon, 23 May 2011 06:11:45 +0000 The rush to explain away the actions of this alleged rapist as a conspiracy is sickening and reveals the lack of objectivity among knee-jerk anti-American Europeans, not to mention their utter callousness toward women.

It is possible to be liberal and in favor of Wikileaks without needing to blind oneself to the shmuckery (that’s right I just invented a word) of Assange/DSK et al.

But either way, squandering $3000 for a room while asking poor countries for more austerity, sounds rather hypocritical.

What is it about people in very high places that they think they can do anything and get away with it?

Seems to me they need someone to ride in their chariot and remind them that they are only human and not a god.

Guy comes out of shower unaware maid is cleaning room, she screams, he tries to stop her screaming, things get out of hand, etc…

Someone really sane has to look at this story.

Who would want to remove a potentially global socialist figure from likely prominence in an up-coming election?

Does the “maid” have any history as a CIA asset?
