U.S. Senator Accused of Sexist Double Standard

Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) stands accused of sexism today after snapping at a female witness at a subcommittee hearing when he previously gave ample leeway to her male counterparts.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Alex Nester reports:

Elizabeth Nolan Brown, senior editor at Reason magazine, said Schatz treated male witnesses at the hearing differently than Internet Association deputy general counsel Elizabeth Banker. The senator berated Banker for attempting to give a longer answer to his “yes-or-no question.” Schatz allowed former SEC chairman Christopher Cox more than a minute to answer the same question.

The Senate subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet convened virtually on Tuesday to discuss the responsibility of online platforms to moderate content posted on their sites. Schatz asked the panel of witnesses whether online platforms should be required to remove content that has been found to be illegal.

The House Judiciary Committee and Antitrust subcommittee is scheduled to hold hearings Wednesday on the “dominance” of large technology companies. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai are expected to testify.

Besides the apparent double standard, it seemed Schatz wanted the witnesses to dumb down their answers into politically volatile sound bites for his advantage.

I watched the same Democrats or maybe others do the same thing to AG Barr, Demanding he give a YES OR NO answer and talking over him when he tried to explain. Yes, this is the intent of these vile people. They don’t really want answers. Just the chance to “RECLAIMING MY TIME” in order to get the PROPAGANDA they want.
Pray for them. God will judge them. And IF you know how to pray, they will be judged SOONER THAN LATER.

The liberal/socialist/communist/marxists are always looking for that “GOTCHA” moment from Republicans and/or Conservatives. Bet you didn’t see this reported on the “Nightly News” on any of the lame stream outlets last night, did you? I can’t conceive of a liberal victory in November with the stance they have been taking on every issue lately, and every BLUNDER quid pro joe is making on a now-DAILY basis! I also cannot believe the USA is willing to be ruled by SOCIALISTS like biden, schumer, pelosi and the members of “the squad”; please America, PROVE ME RIGHT in November!!!

They very well may win. But it will NOT be a victory. It WILL be a stolen election.
2016:: at least 8 million fraudulent votes.
2018 about 20 house seats stolen with fraudulent votes.
2020 I estimate 13 million fraudulent votes.
And to top it off, they will remove Biden in their convention and put in Hillary with Karmala Harris.

They also have a two-tiered justice system; an easy one for them, and a much stricter one for Republicans and Conservatives. That is NOT the way the Constitution states it should be; “…….And JUSTICE For ALL”, not just liberals!

Have faith in the promises of Jesus. John 14:1-3 Also so Matthew 12:36.
Yes, they will be judged by a very fair and righteous Jehovah God.

Do you believe in God? Then PRAY.
The fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. The problem is BEING RIGHTEOUS. Not many even try to be.

This is normal Democrapic behavior. They love to blame everyone not a Democrap of all sorts of HORRIBLE ACTS but the TRUTH is they are the ones doing the things they attack others over. Look at the charges of Racism. Democraps blame every Conservative of being RACIST buy the FACTS prove it is Democraps who are the TRUE RACISTS.

Who says that Schatz is popular? NOT ME. He is a DEMOCRAT and that THESE DAYS means he is a traitor to America.
Proof???? Pelosi, Schumer, Murray, Lewis, Johnson, Feinstein, I will even throw in RINOs like Rubio, McConnell, and Cornyn.

Here are examples of their abuse of power.

  1. I reclaim my time (an effort to stop and answer from being given
  2. This is a YES OR NO question. (When it most certainly was not)
  3. Why don’t you guys put your masks on? ( When he had just taken his off
  4. Testifying as to their accusations against the man instead of asking a question.

So just when do we get to see “kid glove” treatment???? When Biden is being asked questions.
