Students at Berkeley protest against fairness for college men accused of rape

1 Share

At a national conference on campus sexual assault and violence hosted by UC Berkeley, students protested a panel discussion on ensuring fair processes process for sexual misconduct investigations. See here and here.

Read that again: students actually protested the very idea that their classmates accused of rape should be treated fairly. This is becoming a disturbing -- indeed, otherworldly -- trend. Recently, college students in Ohio protested due process for men accused of sexual assault by branding it "bullshit."

The Bekeley
That is how far we've gone.

The
protesters put duct tape over their mouths and surrounded the perimeter of the room, holding signs of purported survivor testimonies. This was all intended to raise awareness about show what they claim is the insensitive treatment campus rape survivors receive.

My guess is that not one of the speakers on the panel suggested that the kangaroo campus rape process works for anyone -- including accusers. But this particular panel process necessarily treats rape victims fairly. But this discussion wasn't about the accuser, it was about the accused, that -- and that's what infuriated the protesters. On modern American campuses, You see, there is no room in the public discourse for even one panel discussion about fairness talk about due process for presumptively innocent men accused of campus rape. Any such talk distracts from the narrative scripted by the sexual grievance industry. It's all about them. If someone dares And if someone dares even to talk about the need for silly things like "fairness" or "due process" for the men accused, they are being "insensitive" to rape victims, "insensitive," or they are a "rape apologist," a "victim denier," or a misogynist. In days long gone, insuring fairness in adjudicating guilt or innocence was a Constitutional mandate right and a civic virtue. On modern American college campuses, it's "rape culture."

The comments that most annoyed the protesters were the ones that raised the specter of the hanging trees of the Old South, where lynchings were also animated by a disturbing hostility to the due process rights of the presumptively innocent. It is ironic that the protesters are so blinded by the righteousness of their cause that they don't realize that they, too, are waging the war on sexual assault with the memes of the hangman.

Hier hatte mal wieder jemand zu viele Bachblüten und außerdem potenzierte Zuckerkügelchen im morgendlichen Kaffee. Die allerdings halfen nicht dagegen, dass der Erfinder der Methode schon mit 55 an einem Herzinfarkt gestorben ist. Wäre er mal lieber hin und wieder zu einem Schulmediziner gegangen. ¯\(º_o)/¯

Das ganze als Video:

Da hat sich die Deko-Abteilung von IKEA aber wirklich richtig Mühe gegeben. Ich würde “The Pimps” und “Call your Mutti” glatt mal anzocken wollen. Vor allem aber Grand Ma’s Auto! Auf der BeatBox 0.1, versteht sich.
