A few years back, Whoopi Goldberg explained on national television that Roman Polanski’s drugging and raping a child in his hot tub wasn’t “rape rape” because he’s Jewish. She didn’t actually come out and say that his Jewishness exculpates him, but the nature and context of his support confirms why he enjoys a double-standard. Right now, Germany’s busily covering up a wave of vicious gang rapes being visited upon its young women because the rapists are their beloved “refugees.” Statistically speaking, the real rape problem in America is in its minority and immigrant communities, but the media keeps insisting that the rapists are all White frat jocks.
Finally, after a long miserable string of embarrassing rape hoaxes being exposed, they managed last week to uncover the perfect crime for their narrative. At the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity right here at Indiana University, a White perpetrator had the White victim held down and forcibly raped in a horrifying hazing ritual.
Wait, what? the perpetrator was a female and the victim was a male?
The Leftists don’t actually care about rape, they only care about leveraging the American moral panic about rape for political effect. A sincere and apolitical campaign to minimize rape and convict the guilty is not on the feminist agenda, because it would run through their minority, immigrant, Jewish, and sexual paraphiliac communities like a tornado through a trailer park.
Slate, a site which has been trying desperately to capitalize on rape hysteria since well before Mike Nifong’s ill-fated crusade against imaginary rapists at Duke University, has changed its mind about rape hysteria. This week, Slate has decided to humanize, contextualize, and victim-frame the perpetrators of violent rape. At long last, rapists have advocates in the mainstream media.
Reginald Artis is a transgender woman from Chesapeake, Virginia, who was sent to prison in 1987 for a sex crime she committed at age 23, when she still identified as a man, against a 17-year-old.
The uninitiated will fail to notice several things going on in this first sentence. We’re told he is transgender at the very beginning, repeatedly and egregiously, throughout the article, to signal to the liberal Slate readership that this is a civil rights issue. Of course, the rape had nothing to do with his shrewd decision to identify as transgendered. But what especially aggravates me is how the wording about the “sex crime” and age disparity primes the reader to presume that it’s a statutory rape thing.
It’s not. It was simple textbook gay anal rape. He held the victim down and anally sodomized him. Period. Paragraph. Shortly after the gentle contextualization, the author invites the rapist to explain what he did. True to form, the unrepentant rapist offers the typical narrative that feminists are always howling about, implying that the victim was basically at fault for getting him all excited and backing out.
Me and this co-worker, we were out having drinks and stuff, and he exposed himself, and I acted on it. We were playing around, but then he had a change of heart … and I forced myself on him.
Strip away all the leftist signaling and imagine Slate sympathetically interviewing a White male fraternity brother who had raped a female and was trying to rustle up some pity for his harsh sentencing. Then imagine that Slate interviewer failing to at the very least challenge the “She basically made me rape her!” script offered by the perpetrator. The double-standard is boggling.
As is often the case with these things, the state’s case for deciding that Reggie remains a threat to the community is shrouded behind a web of privacy. He gets to make a big public case for why he should be let free while the professionals are bound by rules and regulations. They’re prohibited from defending their decision to protect the community. They can’t explain that he was convicted of a prior offense before this one of sexual battery on a 16 year old. They can’t offer his answers to the quiz or his record or reputation in prison. All the reader has to go on is a bullshit paint-by-the-numbers repeat sexual predator’s narrative about being a transgendered victim of racist injustice.
He’s sitting in his comfortable climate controlled world of free meals, recreation, entertainment, and fellowship with other felons…pretending he’s the victim. The only victim here was the man he viciously raped. The only reason Reggie’s still alive is liberal mercy and moral cowardice. Reggie hasn’t even bothered to keep up on his hormone treatments, has performed no surgical alterations, and hasn’t even changed his name to a feminine-sounding one. He’s cleverly jumped on the transgendered civil rights phenomenon because that’s his ticket to public acclaim, and they’re gullible enough to fall for it.
He’s still a rapist faggot. He’s still trying to excuse and downplay his crime. I agree with Slate’s Anti-White Zionist ivy league Jew Leon Neyfakh that Reginald Artis doesn’t deserve “civil commitment.”
He deserves the death penalty.
