Just ask yourselves, as we draw to the end of the first week after the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, how many times did you hear the names of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, or Julie Swetnick? It’s as if the progressive socialist left has moved on, waiting for the next time they can use the same tactic.
As I have stated, unless there are ramifications, and consequences, for these tactics, and false allegations, this will occur again.
We shared with y’all the story of US Army Colonel Wil Riggins. It’s a story that should be a precedent in stopping the weaponization of false sexual assault claims. But, we also need to end the dangerous action of politicizing sexual assault.
How interesting that this week we have a story of parents taking action against false allegations against their son. As reported by Townhall:
“A Pennsylvania couple is suing the parents of five “mean girls,” and a school district, for how their son was treated when he was falsely accused of rape. The civil lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh last week.
Michael J. and Alecia Flood of Zelienople, Pennsylvania, claim that their son (identified in the lawsuit only as T.F.) “was forced to endure multiple court appearances, detention in a juvenile facility, detention at home, the loss of his liberty and other damages until several of the girls reluctantly admitted that their accusations were false.”
The girls admitted to fabricating the charges this past summer. “[The boy] was basically being tortured in school by other students and investigators, but the administration was only focused on protecting the girls who were lying,” the Floods’ attorney, Craig Fishman, told Penn Live.
“Once the allegations were proven false, they didn’t really care one bit about [the male student] and there has [sic] been absolutely no repercussions against the girls.”
The nightmare first began when one of the teen girls accused the boy of sexually assaulting her, while he was working as a lifeguard in 2017. She did it because, as she said in a taped interview obtained by Fishman, “I just don’t like him.”
The accuser is identified as K.S. in the lawsuit. K.S. allegedly then told classmates in October 2017 that “she would do anything to get [the boy] expelled,” and that was why she claimed he sexually assaulted her at the pool.
Then in March 2018, another friend of K.S., identified only as C.S., claimed that the boy entered her home against her will and sexually assaulted her. Two additional friends, identified as E.S. and H.R., verified the story.
One month later, the boy was charged with yet another indecent assault, criminal trespass, and simple assault. It was at that point when T.F. was arrested, expelled from his high school, and labelled as a threat to his community. After being forced to spend nine days in a juvenile detention center, he was placed on house arrest.
But in May, three of the five girls admitted that they’d lied. And for some reason, Butler County District Attorney Richard Goldinger waited until August 30 to dismiss the second allegation, and September 10 to close the charges of the first.
According to the lawsuit, the school has also failed to punish the students who made the false allegations. “[The accused student] has had psychological trauma because of all this. He’s had to see a psychologist to deal with the physical symptoms which are the direct result of being accused of something when he did not do anything wrong,” Fishman added.”
Let me ask a simple question: is this what we want in America? Is this what the #MeToo movement has become in just one year? Are we raising young women in America to believe that allegations, and accusations of sexual assault are means by which we seek to destroy men, ruin their lives, and assassinate their character? Like I said back in that post I wrote, “what if?”
Amazingly, this was a strategic conspiracy to destroy the life of a young man. This cabal of young girls planned, and were complicit in, the promulgation of a false allegation. If we consider what this young man had to go through — and consider the ruined military career of Colonel Wil Riggins — to think there have been no charges brought against these young girls?
Ponder this: what is the difference between what these five girls did, and what Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick did? The only evident difference was that Ford, Ramirez, and Swetnick did not have friends who would lie for them. But, we do have verified reports of an attempt by friends of Dr. Blasey Ford to convince one female friend to change her sworn statement, and lie, in order to support Dr. Ford.
I have issued this warning, and will do so again: this chicanery will only go to damage the real victims of sexual assault and abuse by men . . . like Karen Monahan.
There can be no debate, doubt, or discussion about it: the Brett Kavanaugh episode was all about weaponizing, and politicizing, sexual assault. President Trump was right, the nation does owe Justice Brett Kavanaugh an apology. I do hope that there are some legal consequences for Dr. Ford, Ms. Ramirez, and Ms. Swetnick. But, no worries, George Soros and Tom Steyer would pay the adjudicated damages, and any legal fees, via a GoFundMe account.
We all need to apologize to this young man in Pennsylvania, and applaud his parents for taking up his cause, legally. Those five girls need to face charges, and not just be able to say, “my bad, never mind, we’re sorry.” They are not sorry for the malicious, heinous, and nefarious attempt to destroy the life of this young man. Everyone that had a part in participating in this character assassination should be held accountable.
But, let us step back, take a deep breath, and reflect on what may be happening in America. We have taken a very important movement, #MeToo, and turned it into a weapon to destroy the lives of others. Unless you are stuck on stupid, you cannot believe that this is acceptable. Certainly women should not, lest, just as with calling everyone a racist, the real acts of racism loses relevance.
