"SMEARED FOR LIFE"

Filed under: Uncategorized — ronrosenbaumwriter @ 5:19 am

I’m surprized nobody else commented on this. “SMEARED FOR LIFE” was the front page headline on the Saturday, September 19 New York Post.

The front page contained an explanatory sentence: “The men wrongly accused of gang-raping a Hofstra student will never fully shake the stigma. ‘My name is forever tarnished,’ said Stalin Felipe. “I’ll always have to explain it,” he added in the story inside.

Well, yes.

  1. Oh God, thank you, Ron, for a good hard laugh at the beginning of the day!

    I remember reading something years ago about how Hitler still had some surviving blood relatives and they were living in New York City.

    They changed their name, of course.

  2. Speaking of whom, as you were rightly appalled by all the Obama/Hitler comparisons that were popping up during the health care debate, it strikes me that you might approve of this gentleman’s actions: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2009882084_gasparian16m.html

  3. Of course, what NOBODY at the right wing Post commented on, especially columnist/moralist Andrea Peyser, is that it is now OK to gangbang a willing co-ed without any stigma at all. Not a single piece of coverage of this ugly incident suggested that a man should have stepped forward and urged his fellow bangers to stop out of respect for womanhood. Chivalry is truly dead and our society truly screwed up.
