Ed Helms is mainly known for roles in “The Hangover” and “The Office.” This weekend, however, he was less funny and more stabby when he went after Rolling Stone and their completely fabricated “gang rape” story, while giving the commencement address at the University of Virginia.
You know the story. It was the one where a leftist reporter from Rolling Stone made a mockery of people who actually have been sexually assaulted, because she was more concerned with scoring political points on “rape culture” than she was helping girls who were actual raped. Also, they’re all being sued.
The choice quotes (at 10:15 mark):
“It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss. I would add that sometimes a rolling stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity. Rolling Stone tried to define you this year. As a result, not only was this community thrown deep into turmoil, but the incredibly important struggle to address sexual violence on campuses nationwide was suddenly more confusing than ever and needlessly set back.
“This community didn’t fall for the fallacy that just because Rolling Stone was wrong, everything here must be perfectly peachy. You all had the courage to understand you can be outraged at Rolling Stone and still ask yourselves hard questions: When sexual violence does occur in our community, do we have the best possible protocols and resources available to our students?”
That’s the part that was the most insulting! Why, you ask? Because when conservatives started to say that the facts didn’t seem to add up and would make things harder on those who were actually sexually assaulted, we were called rape apologists.
But we know the adage by now: lies don’t matter if they advance a leftists agenda.
