UVA Rape Hoax: Rolling Stone to Pay $1.65 Million to Defamed Fraternity

Posted on | June 13, 2017 | Comments Off on UVA Rape Hoax: Rolling Stone to Pay $1.65 Million to Defamed Fraternity


Chuck Ross reports at the Daily Caller:

Rolling Stone has settled a lawsuit with the University of Virginia fraternity whose members were falsely accused of raping a female student in a Nov. 2014 article, The Daily Caller has learned.
A source involved at the national level with the fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi, tells TheDC that Rolling Stone will pay $1.65 million to settle the defamation suit.
The magazine’s decision follows a settlement in April with Nicole Eramo, a University of Virginia associate dean who was also smeared in the article, which was written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
In the piece, “A Rape on Campus,” Erdely relayed the story of Jackie Coakley, a Virginia woman who claimed she was brutally raped by a group of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members during a party in Sept. 2012.

What is to be remembered about Rolling Stone‘s bogus story is that it was published in November 2014 as part of a widespread political propaganda campaign about a “rape culture” that feminists claimed was pandemic on U.S. university campuses. This “rape culture” hysteria began with the Obama administration, which appointed a White House Task Force to hype the fear crusade, generating a climate of sexual paranoia among young women in order to mobilize them as feminist foot soldiers in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Just like Jackie Coakley’s fictitious “Haven Monahan,” feminist claims of a “campus rape epidemic” were a lie from start to finish, including the easily disproven “1-in-5” statistic which was repeated by both President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, among many other Democrats. This was a partisan enterprise — promoted with the goal of electing Clinton — which resulted not only the defamation of innocents, but which also deprived accused students of their due-process rights. The feminist movement, the Democrat Party and their dishonest accomplices in the media covered themselves with disgrace by lending their efforts to support this deliberate hoax, while those who told the truth were accused of being “rape truthers,” to borrow Amanda Marcotte’s colorful phrase.

And where are they now? Where is the feminist who will admit that truth, that there never was a “epidemic” of sexual assault on campus? Where are the journalists who will confront the evidence that, contrary to what feminists claimed, (a) the incidence of rape has significantly decline since the mid-1990s and (b) female college students are actually less likely to be raped than non-student females in the same age group?

They are all silent now. As soon as the 2016 election campaign was over, so also did the feminist “campus rape epidemic” hysteria disappear. Oh, don’t make any mistake — college students are still sometimes victims of rape, but feminists don’t actually care. For example . . .


Has any feminist mentioned Earl Leroy Thompson Jr.?

Denton resident Earl Leroy Thompson Jr. has been arrested in connection with a string of attempted and actual sexual assaults near the University of North Texas campus and Denton’s downtown square.
Scott Fletcher, deputy chief of the Denton Police Department, told the Observer on Tuesday that Thompson confessed and gave significant details to a string of burglaries and attempted sexual assaults. . . .
For weeks, Denton police have been looking for a suspect or suspects who are taller than 6 feet tall, extremely broad and dark-skinned but of unknown race and age. Thompson is 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 280 pounds.
Fletcher said police conducted a joint investigation with the University of North Texas police and dedicated significant resources to surveillance when they became aware of Thompson’s suspicious activity in close proximity to the area of the reported assaults.
“We wanted to protect the public first and foremost,” Fletcher said. “But it took a while.”
Denton is home to both Texas Woman’s University and UNT, and young students may be the targets.

Don’t expect Amanda Marcotte or Jessica Valenti to mention this case. Feminists are only interested in college rape when accusations are made against “privileged” males like the University of Virginia frat boys defamed by the Rolling Stone story. Some rapes are more important than others, in the political calculus of feminist propaganda, and if you got raped by Earl Leroy Thompson Jr., tough luck — you don’t matter.
