Savage: Should there be a statute of limitations for sexual harassment claims?

Triggered by the recent allegations against Dustin Hoffman reported by Variety, I questioned listeners whether or not there should be a statute of limitations for sexual assault cases.

The point is that the iconic actor Dustin Hoffman is absolutely vilified. Maybe, rightly so, but I’m asking another question, which is how far back do you want to go?

Do you want to disinter George Washington? Perhaps he talked dirty to someone in his time. You have to understand that we’re living through a cultural madness, a mass hysteria. As  the Nobel Laureate James Watson, discoverer of DNA, said “If you can’t be criticized, that’s very dangerous. You lose the concept of a free society.”

You may think that this is going to make America a cleaner, better society. But that is because you are ignorant of history. You are living through the Soviet purges and unless you get control of your own mind as to what’s right and what’s wrong, society will be destroyed by it.

Should there be a statute on sexual harassment claims or harassment claims in general?

I believe there must be or else the scythe will hit everyone; there will be no end to it. Just as during the French Revolution as I have told you many times when the guillotine began to fall because the revolutionaries wanted to kill the counter-revolutionaries. After all the counter-revolutionaries were executed, the guillotine was still very thirsty and the revolutionaries then killed one another. This has gone on in every communist society. It is a very dangerous road that this country is going down. People have to stand up and be counted for left, right and center.
