When Political Correctness Keeps Officials From Stating The Obvious

I know that rape happens – I’ve had too many women close to me who have been victims. And I know that too often the victims of rape have not been believed – one of those women I mentioned earlier told me the awful tale of having been violently assaulted by an acquaintance only to have the police tell her that they believed she just regretted having consented to rough sex with someone other than her boyfriend. I’m therefore quite sympathetic to calls to “believe the victim” even though I am also a firm believer in due process for those accused of sexual assault. But at a certain point, the weight of evidence requires that one concede that a claim of sexual assault is not simply unsubstantiated, but is actually a lie.

Unfortunately, the politically correct orthodoxy of the current day leads even those charged with investigating claims of sexual assault to bend themselves into pretzel-like shapes to avoid declaring a claim to be unambiguously false.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. — Police here say they have found no evidence to support claims in a Rolling Stone article that a University of Virginia student was gang raped at a campus fraternity in September 2012, noting that months of investigation led detectives to discredit several claims about the alleged assault.

Police Chief Timothy J. Longo on Monday afternoon said the police department had multiple meetings with “Jackie” — the woman who claimed she was gang raped at a fraternity party — and that she declined to speak about the alleged incident or provide any information about it. Numerous lines of inquiry yielded evidence that the fraternity did not have a party the night of the alleged attack, and police were unable to find anyone matching the description of the alleged attacker.

“We’re not able to conclude to any substantive degree that an incident occurred at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house, for that matter,” Longo said at a news conference. “That doesn’t mean something terrible didn’t happen to Jackie … we’re just not able to gather sufficient facts to determine what that is.”

In other words, there is not a single scrap of evidence that shows that any of the claims made by the putative victim of this alleged assault contains even a grain of truth – but nobody in authority is prepared to say that the myriad false claims made lead inexorably to the conclusion that the alleged victim is a confirmed liar. Would that somebody, anybody, in a position of authority would mockingly denounce the liar and her supporters with the infamous old line “I deny the allegations and I defy the alligators.”

UPDATE(Via Hot Air): It gets worse -- now the supporters of Jackie the Liar are demanding that people not blame her for lying and instead affirm her for having had the courage to lie so boldly.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who is pushing for stronger laws against rapes on college campuses, today warned against people criticizing the woman at the center of a University of Virginia sexual assault case.

...

But Gillibrand said the ire over the case shouldn't shift blame onto victims, who already have a hard time coming forward to authorities.


"Victim blaming or shining the spotlight on her for coming forward is not the right approach," Gillibrand said on "The Capitol Pressroom," a public radio show in Albany. "In fact, what we have to focus on is how do we keep these campuses safe? How do we have better trained personnel on campuses so they can tell a survivor what her options are and so they can have all the facts?"

Not only that, Senator Gillibrand rejects the notion that the false accuser should face criminal charges for violating laws against making false police reports.

Gillibrand said it would be wrong for some to call on the female student in the UVA scandal to face criminal charges.

"I think it's inappropriate," she said. "One of the challenges with survivors of sexual trauma and rape is that they often don’t want to actually participate with law enforcement because they don’t think justice is possible. They don't think they will be believed; they think they’ll be blamed."

So never mind that there is not a scrap of evidence supporting the report that she made or the stories that she has told. Never mind the damage she has done to those who she falsely branded as rapists and accessories to rape. Never mind the damage that she has done to ACTUAL VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT by perpetrating this fraud upon the public by making up a patently false story out of whole cloth. It is a bad thing to hold her accountable like we would those who filed false reports about other crimes because she lied about being raped and if we punish women who lie about rape it might discourage those who have actually been sexually assaulted from reporting those crimes.

Ace of Spades has it right. These are not advocates for victims -- they are Cultists who demand that no one examine or criticize their false religion.
