On Race, Sex, Gang Rape, and Slut-Baiting (Or: Why FrontPage.com Is A Mountain of Fascist Pus-Ridden Poop)

Now...there are quite a few things that really piss me off about the looniness of the Far Right; such as how they use the language of equality and "equal rights" to justify laws and actions that do their best to undermine those lofty concepts; or how they have this magnificant gift of selling their BS political theories as if they were the common people defending themselves from the big, bad, evil "liberal elite" (while all along cashing in their 401Ks and leveraged buyouts; OR how they are so capable of preening themselves as representatives of the "victims" of society..despite relying as their base on the upper 25% of the most privileged White male fundamentalist Christian folk in this country (and being funded by the 1% who control almost 98% of all the wealth in this country).

But never in my wildest dreams would I suspect that these fascist asshats...ahhhhh, I mean, these fine young conservative activists for all things right, proper, and American...could stoop so low as to mock the suffering of a victim of a violent crime.

Well..never until yesterday, when I came across one of the vilest pieces of "journalistic opinion" this side of the White Citizens Council....and while I really hesitated putting this on this blog, the ultimate depravity and wretchedness of this essay is more than deserving of absolute disgust.

I'm sure that you have heard all the stories about the horrific alleged gang rape and assault at Duke University, where the entire lacrosse team (all White save for one Black member who happened to have the good sense to be absent, and all male) allegedly forced themselves (as in brutally raped, sodomized, and physically assaulted) one of two female strippers whom they paid to entertain them at a frat party just outside their campus. (For the record, the woman that was attacked was Black; the other woman was White; she was merely verbally abused.) From the evidence gathered so far, the two women were paid to perform a typical strip tease for the "guys", but decided to pull out when the "guys" got a bit too physical with them and peppered them with racial insults. The women threatened to leave and were about to, when some of the "men" decided to take matters into their own hands. The resulting brohaha (with DNA tests pending on all the team members present; the entire team suspended and the coach fired; and the university taking heat from all sides) has launched a firestorm of debate over not just the climate of racism, male sexual agressiveness, and rape at Duke, but the overall issue of respect for women in general, Black women in particular, and especially, sex workers who run the risk of being targets of such attacks every day.

But while the potential for direct physical assaults are bad enough, the social stigma placed on such women as somehow deserving of their fate because of their chosen profession can be, if anything, that much worse....and Black women who happen to be sex workers face the additional stigma of their skin color to boot. The old right-wing racist myth of Black women as super-sexed nymphs who are useful only as objects to be used and thrown away (and the collorary myth of Black men as hypersexed animals who exist only to hunt down women with their penises) still afflict much of popular Rightist opinion and nature....even though such mythologies have long been proven false.

Try to keep in mind that fact while browsing through the following essay on the Duke calamity which was posted to the "conservative" online journal FrontPage.com last week. Could be really hard, though, considering the rotten stench of raw sewage mixed with that tinge of old-style lynching fluid that flows through that entire article.

A warning for all you progressives in advance: I apologize if anyone is offended by my posting the full text of the article here, since many other sources (such as Kevin at Slant Truth, Bitch Lab, and Feministe have already dissected this piece of turd article without having to endure reading through it fully..or even linking it. However, this crap is so definitive in its evil and its total loopiness that only a full and complete fisking can do it the justice it deserves.

So, here we go....time to break out the Gallon of SmackDog Whupass. The original article appears in italics within the blockquotes; my annotation follows as needed.

Guilty 'Til Proven Innocent

By David Yeagley
FrontPageMagazine.com April 4, 2006

It’s racism at Duke, all right. Racism against white students. Members of the Duke University Lacrosse team may have abused a black party girl, but, without any proof or trial, the Duke Lacrosse team was punished by the university, suspended from further games. So terrified was the administration of being charged with “racism.” The black female wins again. She is truly an ace on the field and in court.



Hmmmm..right off the football bat, we get the usual right-wing "poor oppressed White folks" card off the top of the deck...as if the attack didn't occur at one of the wealthiest Catholic liberal arts universities in North Carolina (if not the South). And how about the notion that the guys "may have abused a (B)lack party girl"...as if the author had private access to the DNA tests which somehow prove that she wasn't raped or assaulted.

Now, imagine if the assault had occured across town at the very public, very working-class, and predominately Black North Carolina Central University (also in Durham, NC), where members of the NCCU football team or band had assaulted....errrrrrrr, allegedly....two White girls in the same way. I'm real sure that the good folks of FrontPage.com would have opined the same caution about presumed innocence in that case, too. Yeah, right....this is the same site that gives up the intellectualism of Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and Dennis Praeger...would you expect anything less???



Naturally, the name of the black girl has not been released – appropriate if she is a rape victim, inappropriate if she is engaging in scurrilous race-baiting. The reports say the woman is a divorced, 27-year-old “mother” of two, attending North Carolina Central University. She is not a person of note, and is said to do exotic dancing as a side job to pick up extra cash.


Obviously, (I'm attempting to read Mr. Yeagley's mind here) such a evil anti-White (because only those who really hate White people en masse attend historically Black colleges and universities) "hoochie mama" 'ho slut (and I'm guessing that Mr. Y must be personally wondering what she is still doing in college at the age of 27, which simply proves that she must be such a failure if she's stripping for a living) must be doing the bidding of Tawana Brawley and making all this rape shit up so that she can get paid off the largeese of Duke University and still get laid by the manly men of the Duke lacrosse team...and of course, no woman who flashes her tits and ass for any man other than the special person who uses her as an human incubator should ever be refered to as a mom without the airquotes of mocking disapproval. Unless, obviously, it's for Mr. Y's personal entertainment, I guess.



The entire Duke Lacrosse team and the university may have been severely maligned on all sides. The alleged incident occurred March 13, but as of Sunday, April 2, no charges have been filed against anyone. One report says 46 of the 47 members of the team were required to submit DNA for testing. (The black member of the team, of course, was exempted, since the accuser says she was attacked by white males.)


OK..so how long does it usually take in typical rape cases (especially those involviing gang rape) for charges to be filed or investigations to be held?? And if the "guys" were quickly indicted and charged within a week, would that have made much of a difference in Mr. Y's opinion that, in the immortal words of Justice Clarence Thomas, "The bitch [Anita Hill] set me up"???

BTW..further adding to the "malignment" is the release by The Smoking Gun website of an email by one of the alleged assailants basically promoting the affair as basically one great snuff party where the "bitches" would be killed and skinned alive....but, thank Goddess, not raped. I wonder what our intrepid bigot...ahhhh, I mean, conservative journalist would think of that, too.



The story, as reported in the papers, indicates either profound social retardation on the part of the black “dancer,” or else irrationality on the part of racist-oriented reporters.


Indeed..because only self-hating commie-lib Whites and politically motivated Blacks would ever believe the word of a stupid nig--- ....sorry, a mentally disturbed Black 'ho over such Godly, wholesome, decent men such as these.

Or, to put it a bit more accurately....only a bunch of whiny, bullying Klan-supporting privileged asshats would believe this crap that these "young guys" were totally innocent...but since that happens to be the sole political base and the main demographic of "conservative" screeds like FrontPage.com, why the hell not say it like we think it???



There were two women involved, one apparently white (whose name also remains unrevealed), and the other black. Police got a call from the black woman who claimed she had been yelled at by some guy in the rented quasi-frat house of the Lacrosse team. She and her companion nevertheless went back to the house to “dance,” expecting, they say, four or five college boys to be there. Idiotic mistake No. 1.


Gee...you'd think that Yeagley assumes that the women were actually out there not as dancers but as full blown prostitutes looking for clients??? Or does he think that all "dancers" who dress their way should be assumed to drive men to rape and sexual assault??? And why would they not assume that only five men instead of forty would be there...because all 40 were there hollering at them??? But it's all their fault for not being prepared to give it up...so never mind!!!


Then, she says, the two women were suddenly surrounded by 40-some boys, all coughing up racial epithets—presumably at the black woman. (Remember, she’s a 27-year-old-mother. Some of the team members are under twenty-one, else how could any of them have been charged with under-aged drinking?) The women then say they were so upset and frightened that they left the house.

Then, “helplessly,” the two women went back! Idiotic mistake No. 2.

Some guy on the porch “coaxed” them back, after which time they claim the black woman was abused. So far, there are no witnesses. (So, what happened to the other woman?)



I don't know, Mr. Y....maybe the guys didn't think that the White woman was good enough to assault??? Or perhaps there was a bit to much racial hatred going on that they decided to focus their anger and delayed lust on the Black woman, perhaps???

Notice, though, that somehow the other (White) woman's occupation and age doesn't seem to matter much to Mr, Y...perhaps a bit of projecting of his racist beliefs?? Or a bit of relief that she wasn't attacked as the Black woman was??


Two weeks later, the team was suspended from games. The team captains say that the DNA testing will prove that all the members are innocent. This, of course, if true, will mean that it was either an easy set up for the women, or else the fervor of youthful hormones blinded everyone. In the heat of passion, well-ignited before the girls even showed up, there may have been some rough-housing. That should have been a serious tip-off. Of course, a 27-year-old mother of two certainly must have more sense than a drunken 19-year-old, no? However, our nameless victim showed less maturity than a six-year-old.


Hold on a sec...last paragraph ago, you were criticizing BOTH of them for stupidity for returning to the scene of the crime after being harassed initially...now you go and focus your blame exclusivly on the Black woman for her alleged "inmaturity" dealing with obviously drunk frat guys??? Gee, why isn't her accomplice equally stupid for returning with her...is she less of a "slut"?? Or perhaps she's less stupid because she happens to be....well..White?!?!?! Who writes your copies, Yeagley...David Duke???


All the racial issues in this story are moot. This is a tale of stupidity on the part of two women, particularly the black woman.


Black advocates are trying to play the racist element to the hilt. Rayone Bland, a black divinity student at Duke, thinks it’s that superiority complex of the rich whites. “So being told ‘No’ for the first time, I mean, is mind-blowing for them,” he observes.


Yup...you can't even have a decent lynching anymore without those damn "Black advocates" getting in the way.


If a rape occurred, it is inexcusable, regardless of the race of the victim or perpetrators. However, all the indications raise serious questions about this situation – and the racial hyperventilating makes the case even muddier.


Nice qualifier there: "If a rape occured..." It really does give a nice colorblind sheen to mask the stench of bigotry and presumption that this is only an evil Black urban legend invented by liberal-communist-Whitehaters to embarass Whites for political gain.


So, that black woman said, “No,” eh? First, she’s in a profession where she’s expected to do tricks for clients. Second, she’s walking into a house full of young, drunken athletes, who happen to be white. Third, she called the police and complained once; then she went back, but then left. And then she went back again! That’s a peculiar way of saying “No,” it seems to me. These racist black people just want a role model victim, with mistreatment wreaked upon the weakest of the weak: the black woman. All she has to do is cry, “rape by white male!” and she rules the world.

Weak? How about “strong” – as in a strong manipulator?


Uhhh..hello, Earth calling Astro-Bigot Asshat Yeardley?!?!? First off, the women were there to take their clothes off and dance, not to have sex with any of them...last time I checked, erotic dancers did not do prostitution as part of their work. (At least, not publically; some may do such on the side privately.) But beyond that point, one of the basic principles of common decency is the simple rule that once a woman says "NO", the action ceases immediately...and you kinda forgot that the guys didn't quite take her "NO" seriously..they GRABBED HER AGAINST HER WILL AND RAPED HER, YOU FU&KHEAD!!!! Being drunk is one thing; being drunk and forcing yourself on a woman against her will is something altogether different...and my guess is that this was a bit more than just "raging hormones" mixed with alcohol, since if they were so stoned, they would have attacked both of them.

Sorry, Mr. Y, but this looks like a deliberate sexual lynching of a Black woman who just so happened to be a stripper at the wrong place at the wrong time....and all this pile of shit that is your column does is to dump on her and anyone who has a shred of decency to defend her.



But she had to have the money, right? She just has to feed those children, pay that tuition, rent, car payment, and books. She’s not on welfare, scholarship, or assistance of any kind? Well, whatever she does receive may not cover her expenses. That’s quite possible.

But, exotic dancing—and then to cry “abuse”? This may be pushing victimhood beyond reason.


Translation here: Of course, she didn't need the money...the stupid bitch could have gone ahead and worked for sub-minimum wage or married a nice, Christian Black man who would give her a decent security for the price of being a human baby factory for Jesus (but not too much, though... us White folks gotta keep our majority!!) That she chose to prostitute herself is definitive proof that she got exactly what she deserved...and she's just using White guilt to get paid.

----------------------------------------------

Such is the sick, sick mind of a unreformed racist pig....the same mindset where the likes of Rush Limbaugh can publically and without (remorse utter his smack about Al Sharpton wanting some "Black 'ho" action at Duke...or, in a slightly related item, Michelle Malkin can break out her official "race card" for Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney for the sin of defending herself against a Capitol security officer who tried to stop her from entering her workplace (Capitol Hill); or "libertarian" radio talk-show host Neal Boortz describing McKinney's decidedly kinky hairstyle as looking like a "ghetto slut"....and so on ad infinitum.


There is a special place in Hell prepared for these "conservative citizens"....and as far as this Black man is concerned, all of them can just take a long trip down a short plank into a steep cliff right down into the abyss straight there..and I do hope that the demons are there to give them the same treatment that this poor woman suffered through.


Memo to all rapists and their right-wing anti-sex wingnut fascist enablers: Kindly make like your boss Dick Cheney and fuck off. Your existence on this earth is a waste of good DNA.

And there's no qualifying "allegedly" here, either.

sigh. yeah. it just gets worse and worse, too. just posted another link to an article; apparently a couple of the little darlings were busted for gay-bashing and are currently fighting charges, or one of them is. "Simple assault," mind.

I am wondering: is there any way to raise some sort of legal defense fund via the blogosphere? Over at "Alas," someone noted that *eleven* lawyers have already lined up behind the golden boys; and the accuser is relying on the D.A. Not that the D.A. is necessarily bad, but...jesus, at least restack the deck??

Per ratfuck author: I'm thinking "nerve strike," there.

Oh fuck me, there's been no legal mind to come forward to at least advise the DA? There'd better be some waiting in the wings for the civil lawsuit too. They have to be able to nail them there, I should think.
