Washington Post Defends Another Sexual Attacker

Sexual assault is no problem, according to the Post, if it fits the narrative.

The liberal press has been covering up for the Left’s sexual escapades for almost a century. Let’s see, Eleanor Roosevelt and her girlfriends, JFK’s hookers in the White House, Ted Kennedy’s waitress sandwiches, Bill Clinton, and now a guy in a skirt in Virginia who assaulted innocent school girls in the school bathrooms.

Is there anything vile enough to warrant Democrat press coverage? Apparently not. Respected writer Tammy Bruce brings us up to speed.

 

Bruce: In an absolutely vile turn of events, if you were to read the Washington Post’ coverage of a Virginia high school girl’s rape, you would think you had been dragged by your hair back to the 1950s.

On October 25, the news outlet published an article with this headline:  “In case at center of political firestorm, judge finds teen committed sexual assault in Virginia school bathroom.”

In a Washington Post report about a judge who ruled that a teenage boy sexually assaulted a teenage girl in a bathroom in a Loudoun County, Virginia high school, author Justin Jouvenal, who describes himself as a “Justice Reporter” on Twitter, decided that including the victim’s sexual history as “new details” in his report was somehow appropriate. Providing the reader with elements of the victim’s sexual history is meant to imply she can’t be trusted, she wanted it, she’s a tramp who provoked it. It wasn’t rape—it was a bad bathroom date!

For over 50 years now, we have worked to make sure society understood the fact that no woman wants to be raped or ‘asks for it.’ We are not responsible or at fault because a violent freak decides we are to be used like a piece of meat and attacks.

Rape has nothing to do with sex and everything to do with humiliation and control. And yet, the Washington Post decides to re-animate the misogyny of smearing a rape victim with exactly the implication that the girl may have been the problem. And this in a story about the judge having found the attacker the equivalent of ‘guilty’ in juvenile court. We also know that young man had transferred to the victim’s school as other sexual assault charges against him are pending at his previous high school.

Lending credence to the sexual assault history of the victim being the point of Jouvenal’s ‘report’ is revealed in his promotion of the story with a dramatic tweet announcing “new details” in this “firestorm” of a case. He wrote, “A teen testified she met a classmate for consensual sex in the girls’ bathroom of a Loudoun County high school before, but in a May encounter she was sexually assaulted. New details in the case at the center of a firestorm.”

…What’s also of concern is that Jouvenal’s piece had to be seen and approved by at least one other person in that newsroom. Did multiple people at the Washington Post approve the smearing of the victim because of Democratic political concerns?

Is anyone surprised? Former Soviet Pravda had more truth in it than this Marxist outlet ever will.

If it was consensual, why did the attacker show up in the girls bathroom in a skirt? That, to me, implies premeditation, and not for consensual sex!

So much for “We must believe her” or any other rape issue the libtards may bring up to slam somebody who doesn’t cater to their “political” bent. In other words, D RATS are duplicitous scum. Watch your kids folks, D Rat have no scruples.

Just another criminal facet of great, grand nigger culture being taught in the US now! If a nigger wants to do it it must be ok! — that is culturally accepted by niggers and they have the best culture in the world according to BLM who would not lie abot it!

Why do you think sub-saharan africa is ACTUALLY such a shit hole? Just scope out south africa – after the blacks were given a chance to run the country they have almost destroyed public services in the country according to an article published YESTERDAY? The wosrt thing about this article is it says south africa,despite falling apart, is still rated top african country!?

Dems are morally bankrupt. There are no morals except those approved by the left, which are only slightly higher than a snake. They push this insanity in the media, schools, Hollywood, and anywhere the left has infected with their religion of the state where the only wrongs are those committed by those who don’t agree with them.

Democrat rapists and pedophiles are nothing new. Unfortunately democrats can’t be civilized because they are simply uncivilizable.
