Meet the Press guest says calling out sexual harassment is part of a "war on men"

AEI’s Danielle Pletka: "This whole, ‘Me too, I want to get on the gravy train. Harvey Weinstein looked at me too, but I didn't have the guts, Gwenyth Paltrow, to stand up and do anything about it.’ I'm not really into that."

CHUCK TODD (HOST): You heard from those senators, and I believe it was Sen. [Heidi] Heitkamp [D-ND] who said it needs to be cultural change? Are we in a culture -- is this a major moment in our culture, Danielle?

DANIELLE PLETKA: No. I have no doubt that sexual harassment is real and that many women suffer from it. But I have a strong suspicion that this is yet another one in a series of -isms and complaints and greivances in our society that are used as wedges, that are used as bludgeons, that are part of a, frankly, what many men feel is a war on men, certainly in universities. So, do we need a cultural change? If women want to stand up for themselves, women should stand up for themselves for equal treatment. And if that means that someone's going to harass them, they should stand up and call them out. This whole, “Me too, I want to get on the gravy train. Harvey Weinstein looked at me meanly too, but I didn't have the guts, Gwenyth Paltrow, to stand up and do anything about it.” I'm not really into that.
