Netflix Sanctifies Central Park Five

As George Orwell illustrated in 1984, progressives believe that it doesn’t matter what happens; it only matters what people think happened. To quote Orwell, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The present is controlled by the sort of moonbats who run Netflix. This is bad news for the future.

People of the future will not know what happened. They will know what leftists want them to think happened, so as to advance the narrative that secures their power. A heinously false series on Netflix about the Central Park Five is a case in point.

In its vileness, the liberal media lauds Netflix’s When They See Us, which disgustingly portrays sociopaths as put-upon victims of America’s racist system. Ever digging for new lows, the New York Times actually ran a story praising the series under the headline, “The True Story of How a City in Fear Brutalized the Central Park Five.”

You want to see brutalized? Here is what actually happened:

Sometime between 9:00 and 9:30 on the night of April 19, 1989, a group of more than 30 black and Hispanic teenagers — including the aforementioned “Central Park Five” — attacked 28-year-old Trisha Meili while she was jogging in the park. One of the assailants — whose identity would remain unknown for the next 13 years — raped her with vaginal penetration, leaving his DNA inside the woman’s cervix. As Miss Meili screamed in agony, one or more of her attackers shut her up by fracturing her skull with a lead pipe and mutilating her face with a brick. Meili lost three-quarters of her blood in the assault, and her brain activity could scarcely be detected by medical equipment in the hospital emergency room to which she was later transported. So badly was Meili’s face mangled — one of her eyes had popped out of its socket — that even her boyfriend was able to recognize her only by a familiar ring on her finger. The District Attorney’s office initially assigned Miss Meili’s case to its homicide unit, because none of her doctors expected that the woman would survive for even a single night. Yet Meili did survive, though she spent nearly two weeks in a coma.

Meili wasn’t the only victim.

During the half-hour just prior to their attack on Miss Meili, the Central Park Five and their two-dozen-plus comrades participated in multiple random beatings of other passersby in the park.

The attacks were explicitly racially motivated. Yet the attackers are portrayed as the victims of racism. Liberalism isn’t just wrong. It is precisely 180° opposite the truth. Since liberals control the past through the present, the future will see these vicious thugs as martyred saints, just like Trayvon Martin.

Talk about adding insult to injury:

When the victim, still disfigured and unsteady, went to the courthouse to testify, groups of black demonstrators — led by Al Sharpton — taunted her, calling her a “white slut” and a “filthy white whore,” and claiming that her boyfriend was the real rapist.

Sharpton is a central figure in Democrat politics. Aspiring Democrat politicians have been kissing his ring obeisantly for years.

The Central Park Five confessed and served modest prison sentences. Nonetheless, the unspeakably loathsome Bill de Blasio actually paid the rapists a $41 million settlement in their suit against NYC for malicious prosecution, racial discrimination, and emotional distress. They became millionaires for what they did to Trisha Meili. That any decent person could support Democrats after learning this defies comprehension.

The evidence against the assailants was mountainous. No informed person doubts what really happened. So liberals simply lie.

It is not as if the public does not have access to the truth. In today’s Wall Street Journal, prosecutor Linda Fairstein details some of the many ways When They See Us deviates from what really happened. She was a supervisor of the team that prosecuted the Central Park Five. She describes Netflix’s propaganda as “so full of distortions and falsehoods as to be an outright fabrication.”

But how many people read WSJ compared to those who watch Netflix? Besides, filmmaker Ava DuVernay is a Woman of Color. It would be racist not to believe or at least pretend to believe whatever lies she tells. The future won’t know any better.

The assailants will continue to reap rewards for their horrific crime, thanks to social justice, which is the diametric opposite of what any morally sane person would regard as justice.

The future will regard these nauseating lies as the truth.
