Buck Sexton opened his national radio program on Tuesday by blasting the “enablers” that surround the growing list of sexual harassers throughout the country, saying “none of this would have been possible” without people close to them keeping it quiet for decades.
“I cannot lead the show with anything other than the biggest news story in the country right now, which is all around what you’d have to call the ‘Great Sex Abuse Purge of 2017,’” said Buck. “This is a phenomenon. There’s more information that comes out day-in and day-out about this. Given how much we already know, it’s stunning.”
“We’ve known that this stuff goes on for a long time. I’m well aware of it, there’s laws against it because of that, there are civil-suits, there have been plenty of high-profile cases stretching back for decades,” he added.
“Powerful men using their position to try and induce, coerce, or force sex from women have also been around for a very, very long time,” Sexton said. “What is so interesting and so different now […] is that the systematic suppression of these stories that have gone on for a long time is incredible.”
“The people that were around these abusers in many of these cases were so invested in keeping this stuff quiet and keep that person in their prominent role […] that none of this would have been possible without that cowardice,” he added.
“It is a purge, it is a systematic expulsion of sex harassers and sex abusers that’s going on,” said Buck.
