If Tara Reade had any illusions she was going to get the Blasey Ford treatment, I’d guess those are gone now. There have been no high-dollar Democrat lawyers donated to defend her, nor personal security paid to protect her. The media aren’t there to perpetuate her story and put her on the cover of magazines.
Instead, Reade has had to shoulder her accusations almost entirely alone, receiving death threats and a relentless barrage from the very people who coined the phrase “believe all women.”
In fact, things are getting so bad now that they are actually accusing Reade of committing a crime.
Is the episode about how attempts at unrelated character assassination by major public figures might scare women into silence? pic.twitter.com/0VNHbWSsy5

Debra Messing has now deleted that tweet, but the story remains up at Medium. I’m not going to bother linking to it, as I’d rather not give them the clicks and I’m not going to quote it.
The original piece is actually over a week old and was written by grifter brothers Brian and Eddie Krassenstein. You may recall them from their very public Twitter ban, but if you don’t, think of Seth Abramson’s account, but crazier.
Last night, that story started making the rounds again after a week of attempts to trash Reade and make her story go away. It’s becoming conventional wisdom on the left that she’s not only lying about Joe Biden sexually assaulting her, but that she’s also a political operative and crook.
Whether Reade’s accusation is ultimately true or not may be a question never answered. Especially if Biden is permitted to continue to deny access to his Senate records. But there’s no doubt that what was left of the #metoo movement has now been eviscerated.
No Democrat gets to flip the switch the next time a Republican they don’t like is accused. They’ve blown any possible moral high ground they once claimed to own, all to prop up a senile, nearly 80-year-old presidential candidate who can’t even remember how many grandchildren he has.
We’ll see if it was worth it for them.
