Who would’ve thought that gun-grabbers could be such a bunch of sexually violent control freaks? For those of you who missed last night’s news cycle, avid gun control advocate and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman became former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. New York’s top prosecutor had become the target of an investigative story #metoo exposé in The New Yorker which highlighted some of the AG’s sexual peccadillos….
One of which allegedly included “nonconsensual physical violence” against at least two women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, who spoke on the record to the establishment reporters about their relationship with the now ex-AG.
Schneiderman denied the allegations, saying they were merely ‘role-playing scenarios, then three hours after the New Yorker‘s story was published resigned his position.
That wasn’t the only revelation revealed by the New Yorker. Schneiderman is well-known for being one of the political puppets of plutocrat Mike Bloomberg’s movement to ban firearms, fighting against concealed carry reciprocity, even seeking to ban toy guns.
His former romantic partners and (alleged) victims of his sexual violence, however, got the inside scoop on what he really thought of his anti-gun allies:
Manning Barish says that Schneiderman often mocked her political activism. When she told him of her plan to attend an anti-gun demonstration with various political figures and a group of parents from Sandy Hook Elementary School, he dismissed the effort, calling the demonstrators “losers.” He added, “Go ahead, if it makes you feel better to do your little political things.” When she was using her computer, he’d sometimes say, “Oh, look at little Mimi. So cute—she’s working!” He told Manning Barish that, because she had childcare, she wasn’t “a real single mother.”
The New Yorker helpfully quotes a professor who tries to shed some light on the gun control advocate’s motivations:
Evan Stark, a forensic social worker and an emeritus professor at Rutgers, is the author of a landmark book, “Coercive Control,” in which he argues that domestic abuse is just as often psychological as it is physical. Abusive men, he writes, often “terrorize” and “control” their partners by demeaning them, particularly about the traits or accomplishments of which they are proudest.
Schneiderman now joins the likes of Congressman Anthony Weiner and Governor Eliot Spitzer, two dedicated New York anti-gun crusaders, who resigned in disgrace as a result of sexual scandals. Let the bonfires of these vanities continue.
