Quote Of The Day: “Actually, We Do Know What Happened At Duke”


Heather Mac Donald, talking about the “Campus Rape Industry” in which the Ivy League rape clinics, facing a shortage of rapes committed by the (mostly white and Asian) upper-middle-class overachievers who attend Harvard and Yale, have to make them up:

David Lisak, a University of Massachusetts psychology professor who lectures constantly on the antirape college circuit, acknowledged to a hall of Rutgers students this November that the �Duke case,� in which a black stripper falsely accused three white Duke lacrosse players of rape in 2006, �has raised the issue of false allegations.� But Lisak didn’t want to talk about the Duke case, he said. �I don’t know what happened at Duke. No one knows.� Actually, we do know what happened at Duke: the prosecutor ignored clearly exculpatory evidence and alibis that cleared the defendants, and was later disbarred for his misconduct. But to the campus rape industry, a lying plaintiff remains a victim of the patriarchy, and the accused remain forever under suspicion.The Campus Rape Myth by Heather Mac Donald, City Journal Winter 2008
