'Believe Women' Is Perilous Baloney

 

RealClearPolitics

By Michelle Malkin

September 19, 2018

 

Excerpt:

 

I have a message for virtue-signaling men who've rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion.

 

Stuff it.

 

Your blanket "Believe Women" bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul.

 

A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford -- who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in attendance during her claimed assault, how she got there or how she left.

 

No matter! Bush campaign hack-turned-ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd doesn't need any data to analyze. "Enough with the 'he said, she said'" storyline," he declared this week. "If this is he said, she said, then let's believe the she in these scenarios. She has nothing to gain, and everything to lose. For 250 years we have believed the he in these scenarios. Enough is enough."

 

Clinton/Kerry flack Peter Daou echoed the unthinking sentiment: "To everyone on the right who says I'm being selective, I BELIEVE WOMEN whether the accused is a Republican or Democrat. And yes, that includes all the names you're throwing at me. My default in these situations is to BELIEVE WOMEN."

 

Ivy League poobah Simon Hedlin asserted: "Accusers go public not because of any supposed benefits but despite the immense costs." He argued: "When somebody is credibly accused of sexual misconduct, the default should be to believe the accuser."

 

That is a dumb and dangerous default. The costly toll of "believing women," instead of believing evidence, can be seen in the hundreds and hundreds of cases recorded by the University of Michigan Law School's National Registry of Exonerations involving innocent men falsely accused of rape and rape/murders.

 

One of those men whose plight I've reported on for CRTV and my syndicated column, former Fort Worth police officer Brian Franklin, spent 21 years in prison of a life sentence after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in 1995 who had committed perjury on the stand. Franklin vigilantly maintained his innocence, studied law in the prison library and won a reversal of his conviction in 2016. The jury took less than two hours to acquit him. But his name is still not clear. He recently submitted a 200-page application for a pardon for innocence and cannot do what he wants to do -- return to law enforcement -- unless the members of the Texas board of pardons and paroles (along with Texas constitutional conservatives who pay lip service to truth, justice and due process) do the right thing.

 

In Philadelphia, Anthony Wright also served more than two decades behind bars like Franklin. He was convicted in 1993 for a brutal rape and murder of an elderly woman. It was a female prosecutor, Bridget Kirn, who "failed to alert the Court or the jury to what she personally knew was the falsity of [police detectives'] testimony, or otherwise honor her ethical duty to correct it," according to Wright's lawyers with the Innocence Project. They have filed a lawsuit directly aimed at the prosecutor this week to hold her accountable for her criminal falsehoods.

 

And just this week, Oregonian Joshua Horner, serving a 50-year sentence for sexual abuse of a young girl, was exonerated after a dog that the accuser had claimed he shot dead was found alive. There had been no DNA, no corroborating witnesses and no other forensic evidence -- just the word of girl whose contradictions and memory problems were explained away as "post-traumatic stress" while an innocent man nearly drowned.

 

The idea that all women and girls must be telling the truth at all times about sexual assault allegations because they "have nothing to gain" is perilously detached from reality. Retired NYPD special victim squad detective John Savino, forensic scientist and criminal profiler of the Forensic Criminology Institute Brent Turvey, and forensic psychologist Aurelio Coronado Mares detail the myriad "prosocial" and "antisocial" lies people tell in their textbook, "False Allegations: Investigative and Forensic Issues in Fraudulent Reports of Crime."

She can't recall the year but she knows she was 15?

As a woman, I find it offensive that people are saying this accuser shouldn't have to provide details or answer any questions because she's a woman, that her vague accusation should be taken as dogma and that anyone who dares to question her is guilty of marginalizing victims of sexual assault.

 

All of that is patently false and complete idiocy.

 

Further, the suggestion that no proof should be needed in HER case makes her story all the more unbelievable because her supporters don't want her to answer questions.

 

 

This whole thing is tantamount to open season on men, and eventually, open season on EVERYONE because if vague accusations without a shred of evidence is enough to ruin someone's life then no one is safe.

Years ago, a past girlfriend came out of the woodwork and claimed her child was mine. She was asking for current, and past, child support.

 

I knew the child was not mine. But people around me were skeptical that it was not. My mother even said that she wants to get to know this child as she thought it might be a grandchild.

 

Short story is that no one believed me, but a DNA test proved it was not mine.

 

Was I supposed to just roll over and believe her and accept the fact that I had a child that was not mine? Was I supposed to just pay the money because we are supposed to “believe women?”

 

This is a very dangerous precedent the left is trying to set, just so they can shame this man from the court.

You were the deepest pocket in her social circle so OBVIOUSLY the child was yours. I had a similar issue, a old g/f came over one day with a kid and said it's mine told my leadership the same. I pulled her to the side and said to her she better hope it's not mine, if so she will never see the child again because I will have her declared unfit and take the kid away. I never heard another word from her about it. Truth be told she became pregnant when she went home for a 30 day leave, she had met a hispanic guy and they had sex. I never had unprotected sex with her or anyone else, in fact I double bagged because I never wanted children. A decision I still do not regret at all. The hispanic guy was a good guy and he married her and they were together for at least a year. Women will lie just like any guy for what ever motivates them. It was his kid, no issue there, she was not cut out to be a mother though.

There is a girl that accuses men of raping her or something similar if they will not date her and she was 14 when the first one occurred and is now 17 and still doing this. She does it in different ways so that it isn't the same "situation" each time she reports it. The guys end up before the same judge and he feels sorry for how her life is being destroyed by these men. One she did this to spent 3 years in prison and is now on probation for 5 years and the sex list for 45 years (this is my nephew). She says he raped her in an elevator at the hospital. Even thought the elevator ride was definitely not long enough for that to happen the hospital only has 3 floors. Another guy she sent a nude pic to Which he immediately deleted from his phone and tested her to never do that again. She went to the police and said he requested the pics and she felt threatened. Even though the pic was deleted they were able to find it on the phone hard drive they even said yes it had been deleted and the message that said don't send this. Even though it was deleted the evidence that at one time he did have it was the crime. He is inn prison for possession of child porn. Another she said date raped her which he wasn't even in the state on that date and could prove it. This one is still going on she has changed the date 4 times but they still believe her because how could a girl that young lie she is just too innocent. Yeah right. We wanted her facebook page entered into evidence but they wouldn't because the content was equivalent to child porn with all the nude pics she put on it. I hate this oh we have to believe the women I know of 3 young men's lives that has been ruined by women who lie.
