Cam was wrong. We are hypocritical

Cam Newton’s recent comments to a female reporter at a news conference has brought the predictable outrage. Many taking to the airwaves to call him sexist, belittling, disrespectful all the predictable adjectives. While Newton was wrong and deserving of all the arrows being slung at him many of those criticizing him now both publicly and privately can spare me their righteous outrage. Last November many of them went into the voting both and pulled the level for a man who routinely demeans women to be the next President of this country. Have we evolved as a country when it comes to gender equality when that same man can say as a star you can grab a woman by the pussy and millions of Americans just shrugs it off? When Great Britain, Germany, France, Israel, Australia and a host of other developed countries throughout the world have had a woman lead them and we still have people wondering can a woman be President? Newton was wrong but don’t condemn him because it is the politically correct thing to do while simultaneously holding the same beliefs and doing nothing to change the gender inequality gap that plaques this country.
