In a classic hate hoax, a member of a politically privileged group (usually a black or homosexual but sometimes a Muslim) fakes a crime to bask in victim worship and to prop up the warped ideology according to which they deserve their privileged status because they are supposedly oppressed. Thanks to the ballyhooed War on Women that helped Obama win reelection, these hoaxes aren’t just for minorities anymore. Women are the majority, yet they are all victims of white male oppression in our misogynistic patriarchy. That means all you need is a pair of X chromosomes to join the hate hoax fun. However, these hoaxes have an increasing tendency to blow up in the faces of moonbats.
The man identified as “Barry One” in a Breitbart News investigation debunking Lena Dunham’s story of being raped in college by a “mustachioed campus Republican” named Barry, has made his first official statement since the release of that report. Through his attorney, identified as Aaron Minc, Barry One has set up a legal fund to cover current legal expenses, clear his name, and to potentially file suit against Ms. Dunham. …
For more than two months, and to no avail, Barry One has asked Dunham (through her representatives) to clear his name. Obviously, she has refused.
Admitting that she is a liar might cut into her book sales.
There are reports Dunham was paid as much as $3.7 million from Random House.
Being a liberal, she surely won’t mind if some of that wealth gets redistributed by the court.
However, a possible defense is that no one in their right mind would take anything Dunham says seriously.
The same goes for the liberal publication Rolling Stone:
The dramatic Rolling Stone story of a gang rape at University of Virginia, which prompted national outrage until scrutiny of the alleged victim’s account began to raise serious doubts, was based on “misplaced” trust in the still-unidentified woman, the magazine said Friday.
The 9,000-word story, titled “A Rape on Campus,” detailed a young freshman’s horrific account of being gang raped on a floor strewn with broken glass after being dragged into a darkened room at a fraternity party in 2012. The author, freelance writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely, identified the victim only as “Jackie,” and did not interview the alleged attackers. But the story blasted the Charlottesville school, saying university officials turned a deaf ear to Jackie’s complaints in the latest example of its long history of indifference to alleged sexual assaults.
Right. PC educrats are so indifferent to sexual assaults that they shut down every fraternity on campus in response to Rolling Stone’s unsubstantiated allegations.
The story is riddled with gaping holes, one being that no party took place at the supposed time and place of the rape. Rolling Stone propagandists have effectively confessed that the story is a hoax, but blame the phony victim, rather than their own sloppiness and agenda-driven approach to what was once known as journalism.
Evidently “aren’t we cool” posturing does not substitute for checking stories against factual reality. Rolling Stone had best limit itself to fawning over moonbat celebrities in the entertainment industry.
