Anti-Rape Feminists Are Modern Day Lynch Mobs
When the Rolling Stone UVA rape article broke the web, I wanted to add my two cents on the matter, but didn’t have the time or the motivation to do so. Quite frankly, ain’t nobody got time for that BS!
So it’s only fortunate that the ever erudite Phil Mason has thrown his two cents into the fray—and, quite frankly, my cents are wooden pennies when compared to the gold coins that are Thunderf00t’s:
When I think of false rape allegations such as those surrounding UVA and Duke, I think of To Kill A Mockingbird. For those of you who aren’t as literate as I am, the novel involves a lawyer, Atticus Finch, defending a black man falsely accused of rape, and even though he proves without a shadow of a doubt that the man is innocent of the crime, the jury still finds his defendant guilty. I can’t help but imagine that if Mr. Finch were around today, defending the same case with the same tenacity, feminists would be smearing him as a rape apologist, all because he believes his defendant deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty—you know, the same standard of justice that has been governing civilized society for the past thousand years!
And, you see, this is what is at risk with all of this “college rape” hysteria that feminists are peddling. No one is going to argue that rape isn’t an issue. What people like me are concerned about are feminists trying to combat rape by completely warping due process to suit their agenda, and, by doing so, discarding thousands of years of legal precedent. To them, a rapist is guilty until proven innocent—and like the Queen of Hearts, they would rather have the sentence first, verdict afterwards. (Wow. Two literary references in one blog post? “I is real English major!”) Feminists may call this justice. Decent people like myself call it appalling. You might as well go vigilante and hang the poor bastard from the tree—and if his skin is dark, be sure to don your white hoods and carry your burning crosses!
