  • Liberals Exploit Rape Victims [Lena Dunham, Rolling Stone join socialist revolutionary goals]

    Liberals continuously need another crisis to fundamentally transform a country into a socialist Brave New World. And the more shocking and/or disturbing the better. People will not abandon their way of life unless convinced that the status quo is unacceptable. Lately, the left wing is frothing about a new crisis a rape culture. There are many TV series showing how police will stop at nothing to put sex offenders behind bars. Mega-hit Law and Order created a spin-off television series S.V.U. devoted exclusively to prosecution of sex crimes. Yet activists insist that society is encouraging rape. Yet the Rolling...

    Lena Dunham and the federal government aint volunteering to advocate for rape victims; they would like compensationin millions, please. Faceless and nameless men and women volunteer every day, all across the country, to counsel, shelter and heal sexual assault victims. Hollywood darling Lena Dunham is advocating for women too. But Dunham is neither offering women practical tools to deter rape nor taking a six-month sabbatical to volunteer at a womans shelter. She is offering a book, that women may purchase, containing her tale of rape. So, after contributing to Dunhams coffer, a rape victim may read Dunhams story in commiseration...

    The problem with a victim culture is that so many people want to join the ranks of victimhood that eventually you run short of oppressors. As I say in my new book (personally autographed copies of which make a Christmas gift your loved one will cherish forever), Elizabeth Warren is the whitest white since Frosty the Snowman fell in a vat of Wite-Out, but a dubious claim to be one 32nd Cherokee was enough to persuade Harvard Law School to promote her as their first "woman of color". No wonder so many Democrats prefer her to Hillary: The first "woman...

    "CBS This Morning" has now spoken with the three friends of the victim of an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity house who were mentioned in a Rolling Stone article.

The accounts the friends gave to "CBS This Morning" were similar to each other, but very different from that of the victim, "Jackie," reports CBS News correspondent Julianna Goldman. The article said the friends saw and spoke to Jackie the night of the alleged assault. Alex, a third year student at UVA who asked we only use...

    The U.S. Department of Justice reporting on this topic is unscientific and irresponsible The U.S. Department of Justice has released a report entitled Rape and Sexual Assault Victimization Among College-Age Females, 1995-2013, and in light of the Rolling Stone and Lena Dunham controversies, the DOJ report is getting some media attention. But the report simply does not answer the question at hand, nor can it. Nor can any report. The public and policy makers are going to eventually need to understand that we will never, ever know the real rate of sexual assaults in any demographic group, never mind among...

    In the months since stating that someone named "Barry" raped her during her college years, Lena Dunham spoke about Michael Brown, being goth, eating entire chickens, and Planned Parenthood instead of clearing an innocent man's name. This also happened when "Barry One," the man wrongly implied to be the rapist, repeatedly contacted Dunham and her publisher to get them to clarify that he had nothing to do with the assault. Instead of helping an innocent man, on Twitter, Dunham found the time to write about inane subjects and make jokes. All the while, Barry One was being falsely accused of...

    Yesterday we covered the ongoing soap opera of the immensely unattractive and monumentally untalented Lena Dunhams bogus rape accusation. Long story short: she accused a college classmate of raping her, she clearly identified the alleged rapist which has caused him a lot of difficulties, now her publisher is paying the mans legal expenses and altering future editions of the book to emphasize that the name is a pseudonym. Basically, this is the type of careless and narcissistic behavior Dunham has raised to an art form. Now she takes to the friendly pages of journalistic paragon BuzzFeed to continue to push...

    Pundit Press ^ | 12/10/14 | Aurelius
    In a story published on BuzzFeed, Lena Dunham slammed anyone who questioned the details of her alleged rape and implied that those who do are part of a massive conspiracy to further anti-woman agendas. The article, called "Why I Chose to Speak Out," slams anyone who questions her story. The fact that she accused someone of rape, she explains, means that her account is completely accurate and if you question it, you are a misogynist. In other words, accusing someone of rape is the equivalent of proving they raped you. Recounting her thoughts when writing a nationally-published book available to...

    This week, Rolling Stone printed an editor's note retracting one of the most highly praised pieces of investigative journalism in its history. That piece, written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, alleged that several members of the University of Virginia fraternity Phi Kappa Psi, had raped a 19-year-old student named Jackie, including with foreign objects, as she lay on a floor covered with broken glass. The article resulted in the university suspending the fraternity's activities, and national outrage over the so-called "rape culture" on campus. That rape culture supposedly leads to one in five women being sexually assaulted on campus -- a...
  • Lena Dunham: Why I Chose To Speak Out

    Lena Dunham writes an essay for BuzzFeed responding to the controversy over a passage from her memoir describing a sexual assault during her college years. It has been almost a decade since I was sexually assaulted. It took me a long time to fully acknowledge what had happened and even longer to discuss it publicly, in the form of an essay in my book Not That Kind of Girl. When I finally decided to share my story, it had ambiguities and gray areas, because thats what I experienced, because thats what so many of us have experienced. As indicated in...
  • Lena Dunhams publisher says her alleged rapist Barry wasnt actually named Barry

    As I noted last week, Lena Dunhams memoir describes her having sex with someone named Barry, whom she labels as Oberlins resident conservative. Her description seems to leave it somewhat ambiguous as to whether Barry raped her, but it does describe some sexual behavior by Barry that at the very least reflects badly on him; readers have certainly viewed it as rape, and Dunham has elsewhere characterized it as rape. There are two passages in which she describes the incident: one in which it comes across as consensual but unsatisfying, and another one that she begins by saying,

    Wikipedia editors are intentionally scrubbing any criticism regarding Lena Dunham and her false accusations of rape against "Barry" during her time in college. The concerted effort can be seen in multiple places; the most obvious, is Dunham's page itself, which has no mention of the controversy. But it is not because some lesser-users did not try to include Dunham's actions. In the "history" section of "Not That Kind of Girl's" page, there are attempts to mention the controversy. Higher-ups, however, scrubbed these changes and reverted the page to its previous form. Even changes saying that some have her claims have...

    If you needed any more proof of media bias, Google Lena Dunham. About the only news hits you’ll see go to John Nolte’s blistering investigative reporting on dubious parts of Dunham’s allegations of rape published at Breitbart (Powerline also has this piece). Apart from a single Washington Post mention, Dunham’s dubious story of her rape at Oberlin College by a college Republican (naturally) is nowhere to be found in any legacy news outlet, particularly those that have spent the last few years fawning over her.To recap: Dunham’s new book has a detailed story of date rape by one “Barry,”...

    It has been more than four days since Breitbart News published a detailed investigative report debunking Lena Dunham's claim in her memoir that, as an Oberlin college student, she had been raped by a mustachioed campus Republican named Barry. Thus far, the reaction from Ms. Dunham and her numerous representatives has been total silence, despite inquiries from numerous media outlets. The afternoon prior to publishing our report, Breitbart News reached out to Dunham and her publisher with a detailed message left for Dunham's publicist at Random House. We left the same message for the person described as the publicist's back-up....

The proceeds from the legal fund will be used only to cover Barry One's legal expenses. If there are any leftover monies, those will be donated to non-profit organizations that...

    Breitbart has done an INVESTIGATION and has found that the rape charges that Lena Dunham hurled against an Oberlin college Republican named "Barry" are completely unsubstantiated. There was a "Barry" at Oberlin who fits some, but not all, of Dunham's description but he is definitely not the rapist. Unfortunately, "Barry," who can easily be found via Google now has the false finger of Dunham accusing him of rape. I believe he has strong grounds to take action against Lena Dunham. So what would you recommend for punishment? Here are my suggestions: 1. All copies of Dunham's books, Not That Kind...

    Although Wendy Davis is known at the moment for attacking her gubernatorial opponent Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott because he's in a wheel chair, she became nationally infamous over her support for late-term abortion. Throughout the past year of watching her campaign we've learned Davis isn't alone in her lack of class. In fact, her supporters share just as much of a deficiency in self-awareness as Davis herself. Over the weekend actress and writer Lena Dunham, who starred in President Obama's "my first time" video for the 2012 election, posted a photo of herself with a baby saying, "This is...

    That left-wing group called Rock the Vote has released its latest silly new video urging the youth of America to vote. But vote for what? As usual, they featured celebrities and young people urging a turnout for marriage equality, for global warming awareness and against deforestation. It comes with visual aids for their pet issues. There's a globe with an old-fashioned ice bag on it, a gun with a padlock on the trigger, and a ball-and-chain representing student loans. There are those edgy figures, like the rapper whose "song" drones throughout the video: "My name is Lil Jon and I'm...

    Lena Dunham has teamed up with rapper Lil Jon in this exclusive new music video for "Rock the Vote" in which she "turns out" for abortion rights and promotes other issues that will reportedly influence American millennials to vote this fall. "My name is Lil Lena and I'm turning out for reproductive rights," she confessed. "What's up? It's Lil Jon and I'm turning out for the legalization of marijuana," said the rapper. Sophia Bush, Natasha Lyonne, Glee's Darren Criss, and several other celebrities are featured "Rock the Vote" ambassadors. The midterm elections are just around the corner, and this star-studded...

    In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn't wearing a condom.

    Women have been warned in a Planned Parenthood Action Fund email [1] that Alaska Republican Dan Sullivan, who is running for the U.S. Senate, and three other GOPs could “affect their sex lives.”The warning came from Lena Dunham, the creator and start of the HBO series Girls. In the email Dunham urged women to remember Thom Tillis, who’s challenging Sen. Kay Hagan (D) in North Carolina, “stuck a bunch of abortion restrictions into a bill that was supposed to be about motorcycle safety.”She also wrote that Joni Ernst, a Republican from Iowa running for the Senate who made hog...

    There’s no better wisdom than received wisdom. And when it comes to parroting things she’s heard from people she believes to be smarter than her — which doesn’t really narrow it down — Lena Dunham is tops. Take it away, genius!

    Lena Dunham feels a very strong connection to the gay community. So strong, in fact, that when she realized she was attracted to men it came as a "huge disappointment." Dunham shared her views on her lesbian sister and sexual attraction during an appearance at the Point Honors Gala at the New York Public Library Monday....

    Deadline Hollywood puts the best spin they can on the disastrous season finale ratings for HBO's impossibly low-rated series "Girls." Deadline calls the a dismal 670,000 viewers "steady." Yeah, "steady" in the same way the Titanic steadily sank. After three airings Sunday night, "Girls" averaged only a million viewers. If you are looking for a reference point, the season finale of "True Detective" averaged 11 million viewers. Not beholden to ratings, and obviously eager to not the pop the bubble of a small group of elite urban provincials who have spent three years trying to convince themselves "Girls" is not...

    Perhaps we'll be seeing less of Lena Dunham on screen in the future: The "Girls" talent says she might consider quitting acting to focus on some of her other work. But don't worry, she's not going far. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," the Golden Globe-winning 27-year-old said in the April issue of Glamour, which hits newsstands March 18. Appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO series about four 20-something women growing...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)As expected, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham got nude on Saturday Night Live this weekend, in one scene mocking the Genesis Eden story, where a partly blurred-out nude Dunham and leaf-covered co-star Taran Killam poked fun at the biblical narrative. Saturdays episode earned SNLs second lowest ratings of the year. "Son of God. Noah," says the narrator. "And now, another extraordinary Biblical film that tells the astonishing story of the Garden of Eden and the Garden of Life itself." Dunham then appears naked. "Adam, Adam, a snake just talked to me. Is that normal?" Dunham says. "Before there were Girls," the...

    Apparently unretouched photographs of Lena Dunham's Vogue shoot have revealed exactly how much the fashion glossy airbrushed the star. The pre-Photoshop images, acquired by Jezebel today, show how the Girls creator's jawline has been narrowed, her waistline slimmed and even smile lines removed. An image of the 27-year-old star seated on the edge of a bathtub in a Dolce & Gabbana dress demonstrates these changes to greatest effect.
