Hello, She Lied

  • The worst thing about the Duke Lacrosse case, by far, was the New York Times’ coverage — for which they never apologized so far as I know. The Trayvon Martin case is not that different. Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good (political-correctly speaking) story.

    The Wyoming hoax is only the latest in a long line of similar hoaxes. The one I remember best was at Pitzer: http://www.discriminations.us/2004/03/hate-crime-hoax-at-claremont-colleges/

    If activists have to stoop that low maybe it’s a sign that the problems aren’t that common.

      It is, of course, despicable that (as in last week’s fake AP tweet), nobody bothered to substantiate the claim before going ballistic. Surely, “If it’s onlie, er online, it must be true” is the real issue here. Maybe its time to rephrase a wise comment: Don’t trust, verify.

      Yes, and the Department of Education and the public schools should be hit with a wide array of civil suits to stop this. The DoE should be out of this altogether. More PC, censorship, and thought control in Obamerica.

    If a man had written those comments, we’d hear endless disapproval, with complaints about how the speech, even if legal, created a hostile environment and interfered with the University’s mission. With the alleged fraud exposed, could we now hear complaints about how her carefully orchestrated “spontaneous” response to the speech creates a hostile environment and interferes with the University’s mission?

    The politically incorrect are guilty until, well, just guilty. No pretense of a presumption of innocense in the world according to Crowley, Dewey, and Marx, the trinity of the liberal church.

    I think that part of the absurdity here is that this woman was taken seriously in the first place. What appears to be a noticeably overweight married woman being sexually harassed in that way in the midst of all of the those much more appealing unmarried co-eds should have rung alarm bells. She would logically be one of the last women on that campus sexually harassed, as she would have been effectively invisible to most of the males on campus. But, of course, that wouldn’t have been in the narrative.

  • Most large universities have a contingent of these (paid?) Think Progress thugs like this Meg Lanker monster. They endlessly lie and terrorize campus civil life.

  • cheeflo

    I read that she admitted it.

  • If my kids ever go to Duke, I’ll instruct them to avoid the professors who signed that manifesto denouncing on political grounds the lacrosse team. Charlatans…

    It seems like a preponderance of evidence means that, assuming their words are considered equal (50/50), it takes only .1% worth of evidence to eject a man from college. So every man in college who comes into contact with the opposite sex is basically .1% away from being kicked out and branded a rapist by the local kangaroo court.

  • daveselvers

    Smear her reputation when proven guilty.
    Hateful racist bitch.

  • UncleElmer

    Lay off for God’s sake. It was a cry for help. She obviously craves a Republican man.

  • Jacob

    Not for nothing but you notice how all the accusers happen to be black ? Just wondering why that is. Oh I forgot, they’re taking over with their racist liberal agenda. And what do they get in return from the democraps? The usual. Nothing !!! LMAO
