The policy of “innocent until proven guilty” was shoved into a corner like a pair of too small, non-stretch jeans owned by a fat-pride feminist. There the policy was was denigrated, sneered at, and kicked into a ball by Title IX. Anyone who dared champion the policy of “innocent until proven guilty” or due process on college campuses was deemed a woman-hating spit bucket, who probably made necklaces from the finest teeth of unborn sea lions.
Then along comes Betsy DeVos, who had the temerity to champion the cause once more:
From The Hill:
DeVos, speaking at George Mason University’s Arlington, Va., campus, said the Obama administration helped elevate the issue of sexual assault in American public life and issued guidance in 2011 with good intentions, but good intentions alone are not enough.
“Justice demands humility, wisdom and prudence,” she said. “It requires a serious pursuit of truth.”
Of course the “pursuit of truth” is where she went wrong. Often the victims, or maybe that’s “victims” of “rape” aren’t interested in truth. They’re interested in revenge and victim status. But more on that later.
DeVos said the system established by the prior administration has failed too many students. She said survivors, victims of false accusations and campus administrators have all told her that the current approach does a disservice to everyone involved.
“That’s why we must do better because the current approach isn’t working,” she said. “Washington has burdened schools with increasingly elaborate and confusing guidelines that even lawyers find difficult to understand and navigate.”
Which is entirely the point. Where has the campus rape, believe all women who say they’ve been assaulted, denigrate all the boys, policies led us? Behold, a handy list:
- NPR Says FALSE Rape Accuser is a ‘Survivor’
- JUSTICE ‘Victim’ Who Falsely Accused Students of Rape Now Faces Prison Time
- JUSTICE: Student Falsely Accused of Raping ‘Mattress Girl’ Sues for Defamation
- Rolling Stone Sued by Fraternity Named in Fake UVA Rape Story
To name a few.
The left, who care more about narratives and making women into innocent victims (which as I woman I find insulting), and all men into ruthless barbarians ripe for societal slaughter, are peeved with DeVos. Innocent until proven guilty? Due process?
The reactions on social media were predictable. Some were too good not to share.
Makada’s going to frame this up for us:
Leftists are tweeting #StopBetsy because she wants men to be innocent until proven guilty. I guess liberals don't believe in due process.

….and all these dweebs who probably down vote cat videos to be contrarians.
Survivors of sexual assault deserve to be believed and supported, not brushed off and blamed #StopBetsy

Oh, looping in NARAL. Sweet choice.
Betsy DeVos is a perfect example of what happens when you let Jesus take the wheel and he crashes into a manure truck. #StopBetsy

Blaming Jesus. Cute.
Rapists are more of a problem than grizzlies. #StopBetsy

I don’t even know what this means, Doctor. But thanks for demonstrating you’ve never heard of non sequiturs being shitty arguments.
Here’s another blue check mark who’s stirring up the Twitter with her irrationality.

Maybe Jackie is confusing Betsy DeVos’s plan with what Islam does every day.
Betsy DeVos is just thinking of the feelings of those poor rapists who might be inconvenienced because they ruined a victims life#StopBetsy

Actually the opposite, Alt Fed. See list above. Try not to hurt your finger as you scroll up. Or poke yourself in the eye as you wave your hands about in childish fashion like Trigglypuff.
