Michigan AG Candidate Vows in Ad 'I Will Not Sexually Harass My Staff'

What happened?

A Democratic candidate for Michigan attorney general has a new campaign ad about sexual harassment that seems to be saying “elect me because I’m a woman.”

How did she tie her campaign to sexual harassment?

The Detroit attorney was apparently referencing Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Al Franken and other men in powerful positions who have been accused of sexual misconduct.

“We need more women in positions of power, not less,” Dana Nessel said in the campaign ad. “So when you’re choosing Michigan’s next attorney general, ask yourself this: Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d say so.”

Glenn’s take:

“I’m hoping that she’s joking here,” Glenn said. Yes, it’s not possible for her to follow the Harvey Weinstein playbook for traumatizing actresses and reporters because of her anatomy, but as we learned in 2016, “running solely on gender doesn’t really work.”

GLENN: Michigan attorney general candidate Dana Nestle wants you to know something. I'm not making this up. She thinks it's important for you to know that she does not have a penis.

VOICE: In the last few weeks has taught us anything is that we need more women in positions of power, not less. So when you're choosing Michigan's next attorney general, ask yourself this, who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn't have a penis? I'd say so.

GLENN: Okay. I'm -- I'm hoping that she's joking here.

I mean, she does have a point. You know, it's not possible for her to do the things that the Weinsteins and Conyers of the world have allegedly done. And that's a promise that she can absolutely keep to her constituents. But as we saw with the presidential election of 2016, running solely on gender doesn't really work.

Plus, isn't this gender specific? I mean, it's a little unfair and sexist to imply that there is a risk of a potted plant or a bathroom incident if a man holds position of power, simply because he's a man.

All of the allegations about sexual misconduct are throwing a much needed light on the fact that our societal ideas about manhood have been completely decimated.

We have to remember real men don't do this kind of crap. They don't -- they don't get their confidence or their ego for asking women to look or touch their junk. Real men elevate their coworkers, their acquaintances, regardless of gender, to their best self. And you know what, can I tell you something else? I think -- I know this sounds sexist. But I think real men actually stand up to dirtbag men like that and protect women and other men or anyone else who might be in the line of fire of that potted plant.

It might not seem like right now, but with two months of non-stop allegations coming out every day, it doesn't seem like it. But there are good men out there who don't keep bags of sex toys in their office closet.

Those men do exist. Right? They are the majority. Right?

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Modern Scottish Warrior Goes 'BRAVEHEART' on Elites | Neil Oliver | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 171

Neil Oliver — a Scottish television presenter, historian, and author — is one of the courageous people willing to let his “no” mean “no.” At the height of his impressive career as a TV presenter, he realized the people promising the solutions to our problems are the same people responsible for them. But instead of bending the knee to the status quo, he became a modern “Braveheart” hero and defiantly said, “No,” to the tyranny of BLM, woke politics, and COVID lockdowns: “We're not extreme, THEY’RE extreme.” On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn talks to Neil about the difficulties he has experienced ever since he began standing up for what's right and details how you can stand up as well. They also dive into Neil’s fiery reactions to BLM, the rewriting of history, and the odd phenomenon of “excess deaths.” On any and all of it, Neil’s stance could not be any clearer: “I just believe in freedom.”

Glenn Breaks Down Bodycam Footage from Paul Pelosi Attack | Friday Exclusive | Ep 248

The bodycam footage of the attack on Paul Pelosi was finally released — over two months after the altercation occurred. But first, on today's Friday Exclusive, Glenn flashes back to the original, now-deleted, NBC News report that left us with more questions than answers. Then, he breaks down the recently released bodycam footage that some of America's most powerful seemingly tried to keep from going public. Finally, Glenn asks, "Why was this footage not immediately released when it could have cleared up all the confusion and controversies?" The lack of credibility and trust throughout society is getting out of control, and the delayed release of this footage may make it all worse.

Debunking Outrageous LIES from the New Hulu Series, ‘The 1619 Project’ | Ep 247

Remember this quote from George Orwell’s “1984”? “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The Left is trying to erase the truth of our past to control our lives NOW.

For example, did you know there was also a white, European slave trade? That Thomas Jefferson intended to get rid of slavery during America’s founding? That only two colonies voted against including the abolition of slavery in the Declaration of Independence? Glenn sets the record straight on some of the history forgotten by "The 1619 Project" — a “project” that evolved from “journalism” by Nikole Hannah-Jones of the New York Times into curriculum for school districts in all fifty states and into a documentary series airing on Hulu.

"The 1619 Project's" premise is that America was founded and built on slavery alone and continues to suffer because of this ultra-racist foundation. It dovetails perfectly with the critical race theory blanketing America’s education system, for which Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being raked over the coals this week after blocking a high school Advanced Placement course on African-American studies.

"The 1619 Project" is a political agenda dressed up as history and gets so many historical facts absolutely WRONG. Glenn takes you into the American Journey Experience vault to reveal artifacts from one of the largest private collections of pilgrim and Jamestown history. He’s joined by Elijah O’Neal, the head of the education department at the American Journey Experience, who brings the evidence to debunk the LIES about America being pumped out in the news, in our classrooms, and now in our living rooms.

Biden sends Ukraine TANKS. Does he WANT war with Russia?

Why would President Biden send U.S. tanks to Ukraine? Tanks are an offensive tool, not a defensive one, and this latest move from Biden (and Europe) will only bring us one step closer to World War 3 with Russia. In this clip, Glenn explains why this decision makes NO SENSE...unless there’s a reason Biden and the far-left may actually WANT to engage in war. And as we face the ‘inevitable’ fall of the West, Glenn explains, there is one, big reason why several global superpowers may want world conflict to cover their tracks…
