Democracy fulfilled: When hashtag becomes legislation

Published

on

In a rape capital of the world, Sweden, what started out as an uprising by hashtag activists on social media with the popular  #Metoo, has turned into potential legislation designed to protect women from being raped.

Sweden deputy prime minister and outspoken feminist, Isabella Lövin, said the social media #metoo  campaign  “showed that there is a need for the new legislation”.

Seeing a path to promote social justice, the mostly feminist legislature in Sweden has led the charge to pursue consent forms, even though the consent movement has shown no progress toward decreasing rape over the last two years.

Rape statistics show an alarming trend.  #MeToo hashtag activists have been very successful this month in getting their hashtag to influence policy, but there doesn’t seem to be much logic behind doubling down on consent as an antidote to sexual crimes.

According to the AP, “Sweden is moving to change its rape law in a proposal that would require people to get explicit consent before sexual contact.”

So Feminist dominated Sweden plans to stop rape with the same logic that opponents of guns plan to stop crime. Stop the gun crime by legislating background checks, and stop the rape by requiring consent forms.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said his coalition has been preparing this “historic reform” since taking power in 2014.

On Twitter, a popular global social media platform, the #Metoo movement has taken on a sort of drinking game quality.

 

However, there are many global members of the movement who consider this a top concern for global politics.

In collaboration with the United States hashtag activists, the #MeToo movement was named Time Magazine’s person of the year early in December and has been a long time in the making according to this  website.

“The transformational movement founded by Tarana Burke ten years ago receives magazine’s highest honor for encouraging millions to speak out about sexual violence and harassment.”

Not everyone is happy with the progress the movement is making.

Opponents of the Hashtag activists #MeToo campaign in Sweden are feeling pressured.

In this article,”45 percent of Swedish men think that my too-call is wholly or partly exaggerated, according to a survey from Novus”.  Respondents even called it a  witch hunt for men. Even 30% of women did not agree with the #MeToo focus.

The global #MeToo movement, which has set its sights on “radical community” and “disrupting systems”, prides itself on “using the idea of empowerment through empathy”, according to the organizer,  Tarana Burke.

Talking about her future #MeToo community organizing ideas:

“Foundations have to think outside the box and maybe expand past the usual suspects that get all of the funding and start thinking about how to reach into communities and support community healing on a more local level,” Tarana Burke said in an interview with The Chronicle. 

Least anyone thinks that the community organizer and her group is focused only on consent forms in Sweden and forcing apologies from Hollywood directors, look no further than the organizers own Twitter account:

MUST WATCH: Violent Leftist Thug Threatens BLP Reporter, Uses Homophobic Slurs in Angry Rant at Rally

Published

Monday, Big League Politics had reporters on the ground in Charlotte, NC, covering the City Council’s vote on whether to allow Charlotte to be the host city of the Republican National Convention in 2020.

Outside the city municipal building, a group of Trump supporters gathered in support of hosting the RNC. A deranged leftist thug confronted the group, and the media covering the event, including a BLP reporter.

WATCH:

 

This is the modern left. Whipped into such an anti-Trump frenzy by the mainstream press, they cannot even form coherent sentences. F*** Trump is their only policy proposal, which is why so many Americans are leaving the Democrats.

The Charlotte City Council voted 6-5 in favor of allowing the RNC to be hosted in the Queen City, all but guaranteeing that it will be held there. The DNC was held in Charlotte in 2012.
