'The time has come,' the Walrus said, 'To talk of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax, of cabbages and kings . . . .'

▲"One of the big lies of 2011 (though hard to believe on its face) was that told by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about Libya as a means to justify regime change in that country – a goal not authorized by either the U.S. Congress or the UN. Thus, with a straight face, Ms. Clinton told the press that Gaddafi was passing out Viagra to his troops so they could go out and rape dissidents en masse, and that the troops were indeed engaging in mass rapes. Of course, the compliant media was more than happy to spread such outlandish accusations. What the press was more reluctant to do was to publish Amnesty International’s later report that there was absolutely no factual support for these accusations. As Amnesty International reported, 'Not only have we not met any victims, but we have not even met any persons who have met victims.'”

▲You don't have to be a "perfect" victim to have your rapist convicted.  A girl recanted her rape allegation but the jury convicted the man anyway.  I hope, and pray, that the prosecution had more to go on than just an unreliable child witness. Every objective observer, including the liberals on the U.S. Supreme Court, has noted concerns about child testimony in rape cases.

▲Here's a typical "rape" case -- -- where the charges were dropped because the district attorney doesn't know what the hell happened.  If this incident were looked at by the representatives of the sexual grievance industry who do rape studies, it would be included as a "rape" only because there is no definitive evidence that it was a lie.  In fact, it should be classified in an entirely separate category of "unknowns" where the vast majority of rape claims would end up if the surveyors were in any sense honest. Instead they are happy to have us believe that if it can't be definitively called a lie, it must have been a rape.  This canard would not be a concern except that the sexual grievance industry uses their "statistics" to justify more and more draconian rape "reforms," as we've discussed here many times, which place innocent men and boys at ever greater risk.  Biggest example last year: the "Dear Colleague" letter than lowered the standard of proof in college sex disciplinary proceedings.
