A great segment on 60 Minutes aired last night.  I only caught the very end before I passed out for the night. But luckily for us, CBS put it up on their website, and made it available for embedding. So I can share it with you here. If you’re not familiar with the Duke Lacrosse Hoax, the piece does a good job of showing you how reckless D.A. Mike Nifong was. He has since been disgraced and disbarred, but the activists who went along with his bullshit are still there…people like Amanda Marcotte and Jessica Valenti. Here’s what Marcotte had to say after the whole thing had been revealed as a sham:

“I had to listen to how the poor, dear lacrosse players at Duke are being persecuted just because they held someone down and f**ked her against her will – not rape, of course, because the charges have been thrown out. Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair.”

Note the timing. Marcotte wrote this after the charges in the Duke Lacrosse case were thrown out, and the whole business was exposed as a sham. In fact, even in the sanitized version of the blog post that survives today, she writes, “The prosecution in the Duke case fumbled the ball. The prosecutor was too eager to get a speedy case and make a name for himself.” In a sense she’s right. Nothing says a prosecutor “fumbled the ball” like getting disbarred for deliberately withholding exculpatory evidence in a case. However, one suspects that Marcotte thinks Mike Nifong, the prosecutor in question, should have just found a more out-of-the-way storage locker for the “exculpatory evidence” in question, in view of her lengthy and disturbingly lynch mob-esque writing about the case.

As you can see, she wasn’t contrite at all. None of these sex hustlers were. Valenti just as disturbing in that excerpt from her book I linked above:


By the way, the stripper who falsely accused these guys is now in prison, due to the fact that she killed a guy. I’ll leave you with that last factoid before the video.

(If video isn’t working, link is HERE).

  1. Damn, that Duke accuser is a train wreck, and that’s putting it nicely.

    I think it speaks even more volumes that Marcotte and Valenti are still willing to prop this psycho up on a pedestal even after the subsequent arrests..

    1. More importantly, it speaks volumes that their rhetoric and delusions of absolute female innocence have remained after this case and the UAV rape hoax. Rape Culture is a fantasy fabrication that these women keep alive in their heads and in the heads of other ignorant, misguided souls.

      1. It’s like they NEED to maintain the narrative that the world is a HORRIBLE Grimdark place where EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING want to oppress and rape the women.

    2. Marcotte and Valenti are are so drunk on radfem Kool-Aid, if a woman accused an astronaut of rape, and he was proven to be on the moon at the time she claimed the rape happened, they’d still believe the woman and scream for the blood of the accused rapist.

      1. LOL You should get some sort of award for this post. It’s such an accurate description of radical feminist “rape culture” that I might just use it myself, if that’s ok with you.

    3. Ugh, seriously. Just skimming through her Wiki article, it’s a wonder why she couldn’t get locked away for life BEFORE killing her boyfriend (especially after the false rape accusation…. goes to show how much the legal system REALLY needs to do a better job of penalizing that shit). Hell, from what I read there, it sounds like the only reason she didn’t get a more severe punishment for murder is because her self-defense testimony was somewhat believed. Given her past records, what ground does she have to stand on? Unless the boyfriend’s somehow proven to be an even bigger scumbag than her (which would really be quite the accomplishment), I’d be far more willing to believe his claim that he was fleeing for his life.

  2. This alone is enough to permanently discredit Marcotte and Valenti – how the hell do these contemptible misandrists still have writing gigs?

  3. Amanda Marcotte lecturing on racism. I’d make a pot and kettle remark, but that would probably be racist.

    Update now that I’ve watched the video: damn glad to see that coach has his life back. Same goes for the players.

    Further update: Fuck you, Amanda Marcotte.

  4. That whole case is the reason Marcotte has a career. She’s nothing but another rabid asshole who gets by shilling fear and identity politics. It’s amazing how many people just line up to drink the Flavor-Aid when it’s a flavor they like.

  5. This is why radfems like Valenti and Marcotte aren’t taken seriously: it’s all about throwing due process out the window and convicting on the basis of ONE WOMAN’S word (Listen and Believe!) and ZERO evidence (because evidence is oppressive!). Now that same shit repeated itself with the Rolling Stone article on UVA, and the Toxic Twins are at it with the same bullshit: “WHO CARES THAT SHE LIED! HANG THE ACCUSED ANYWAY! THEY’RE MEN, SO THEY’RE GOING TO RAPE EVENTUALLY!”

    1. All that matters is “at least we’re having the discussion” right?

      The facts are unimportant yet again.

      The accused being innocent will probably end up a footnote somewhere, if that…

  6. For those of you who would like a more detailed account of the colossal trainwreck that was the Duke lacrosse case, I recommend KC Johnson’s blog at http://durhamwonderland.blogspot.com/.

    To this day, I maintain this: if Mike Nifong had correctly cited the exculpatory evidence and dropped the charges, he probably would’ve lost his election — but he would’ve kept his law license, and his integrity.

  7. By the way, the stripper who falsely accused these guys is now in prison, due to the fact that she killed a guy.

    Murdered her boyfriend.

    Crystal Mangum is walking proof of feminism’s failures.

  8. I just watched that 60 minutes piece on the coach. What a stand-up guy. No wonder the feminist continue to hate him. He’s every inch the righteous human being they only pretend to be. Shame on everyone, especially that hack Nifong, who demonized these innocent men.

  9. Marcotte and Valenti are too of the most vile, disgusting and, quite frankly, VIOLENT (hey, let’s use their insane Radical Feminists own definitions, shall we?) people out in the media. Marcotte has famously made claims that “there’s no such thing as a false rape claim” (which is 100% PURE bullshit) and she’s propagated the flagrantly false “1 in 5 women will be victims of rape” – where she intentionally includes “assault and unwanted contact” with rape (here’s a hint you psychotic cunt, they’re classified differently under the criminal code for a REASON). They’ve been on this extreme left wing gravy train of pulling men down, while raising up the establishment for quite a while.

    The most infuriating part of all of this, aside from the blatant misandry, has to be outlets like NPR having the BALLS to sit there and go on and on about “the great failure of these (competing mind you) journalists and how this could cause so much harm to the great (LMAO) profession of journalism” when they were complicit in the propagation of the “campus rape culture” hoax with their yellow fucking journalism. They also seem to be skating around the REAL meat of the issue; the fact that in the case of Rolling Stones article that there was a CLEAR, BIASED AGENDA at play, an agenda that most, if not all of the mainstream media is a part of. They have the nerve to keep asking “how could this have happened?” when they know DAMN WELL how it happened.

    As for Valenti… well, she’s just batshit crazy and does it for the money (well, she’s a hateful bitch and she gets paid to spout her hateful bile and pretend it’s righteous and just, so I can’t imagine a sweeter job). Of the two I’d rank Marcotte as more of a threat to free thought and decency since she keeps getting invited onto left wing mad houses like MSNBC while Valenti just spends her days vomiting out bullshit on the Guardian.
