Feminism and the Duke rape case

William L. Anderson:

The Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum – who, for the most part, tends to be much more thoughtful than most writers on the national scene – once tried to put the entire lacrosse affair at Duke University into perspective in her April 26 column by labeling it a "scandal in search of meaning." Alas, she is far too generous with the accusers and those who have been the driving force of what is unmistakably a case of prosecutorial misconduct and lies by police and District Attorney Michael Nifong.

Indeed, if there is a scandal here, it is a scandal of justice, as lawyers and investigators are uncovering (using police reports and other "official" documents) the web of deceit that has become the bedrock of the rape charges against the three Duke athletes. Yet, there is also a secondary scandal, that being the actions of a number of Duke faculty members and the black leaders of Durham, North Carolina, and the NAACP. Without the feminist-black alliance driving the politics of this case, there most likely would have been no indictments, as the evidence clearly demonstrates that Crystal Gail Mangum was not raped by the Duke athletes or anyone else.

(One needs to read all of the documents to understand how police and prosecutors willfully sought indictments that they knew were false, covered up exculpatory evidence, and engaged in criminal behavior in their pursuit of this case. Lest anyone think that the prosecutorial situation in the United States is one in which prosecutors actually seek justice, read the Duke material in all its horror, and realize that prosecutors across the United States have closed ranks in defense of Nifong. Thus, the official "justice" system in this country perpetuates lies and more lies.)

Yet, there is an even more disturbing aspect to what has happened in Durham, and that is the laying bare of the real agenda of the left: the destruction of all individual rights and the imposition of what the left calls "collective rights," which are nothing more than a sham. If the left continues to gain power, and if the statements of the demonstrators in Durham are an indication of the mindset of leftists, then people charged with crimes of "political incorrectness" will not be permitted to defend themselves, publicly or in a court of law. Once upon a time, leftists were the ones who were most vocal in defense of individual rights, at least where the courts were concerned, but that is no longer the situation. Between the "conservatives" who call for more police power and "leftists/liberals" who also call for more police power – at the expense of individual rights – there are few people left to defend what rights remain.

That is why I call the Duke affair a "meaning in search of a scandal." Feminists and those who consider themselves to be "civil rights" advocates already have a certain view of the world, one that holds that white males are the source of all oppression, and that all relationships are nothing more than the manifestation of white male power. Thus, incidents like what supposedly happened at the off-campus party at Duke are "proof" of the veracity of the feminist worldview.

Ever since every sexist and racist group descended onto Duke to publicly condemn these boys, I went into over drive trying to make people consider that these boys wouldn't have submitted to DNA testing if they were guilty, but since the 1st DNA evidence came back, I became more persistent and met equally persistent feminist (i.e. feministing, Rachael’s Tavern, Alas a blog, Tennessee Guerrilla Women, Justice4Sisters, Hazel8500 etc...) who adamantly insist these boys are guilty for no other reason than because a "woman" (i.e. the stripper) claims it so.

I've noticed since then that most of feminist blogs have fallen silent as new evidence suggests that the stripper's claim to be false.

Feminist are running out of creative fantasies to twist facts and evidence that rape really occured. One feminist blog owner basically said that she's not going to reopen her blog until there is evidence that supports the stripper.

I'm sure these misandry-feminist are hoping this case will quickly die and fade away before the myth that women are morally superior is busted, and that many times women take male victims. In the Duke Lacrosse case, the stripper has 47 male victims.

Feminist have long since departed from the noble goals of equal opportunity and mutual respect to an aggressive politcal lobbying group struggling to change public policies to give privileges to only women and retrict the rights of anyone male.

When has an athlete ever really raped a woman?

That's like Evil Knievel blaming Harley for his broken bones. It's just plain irresponsible.

Amen, betty.

Duke Lacrosse Rape Accuser Mentioned No Condoms Were Used
It seems the defense keeps finding more to support their side of things, with each new piece of information they get. Now from that stack of 1,300 papers, they have discovered that the stripper accuser mentioned no condoms were used. No condoms and…
The stripper’s body was completely void of any sign of a sexual assault (except for signs of recent vaginal and anal from her boyfriend). The alleged crime scene was completely devoid of DNA.

It is impossible that a crime scene with three drunk men in a small enclosed room with a fighting and clawing woman being orally, virginally, and anally penetrated not leave any DNA evidence of urine, blood, vaginal fluid, sweat, fecal matter, scat smears, saliva, tears, or semen... especially if condoms were used. How would they take off the condoms during all this chaos without spilling, smearing, or touching the content inside or outside of the condom?

When investigators questioned the stripper after DNA tests on the semen found inside her vagina and rectum didn’t match any of the Duke players, the stripper admitted to having had sex with at least three men around the time of the alleged rape. The stripper named her boyfriend and two men who drove her to Duke. She also confessed to using a vibrating sex toy vaginally during a performance, prior to the Duke party, for a man and woman.

When questioned, the “drivers” said they would drop her off at several places, including hotel rooms.

Many sexist and feminist groups have marketed this stripper as a courageous single mother, but new information seem to tarnish her “halo”.
