Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

First, anonymous accusations always lead to abuses. The right to face your accusers is the cornerstone of justice and has been since ancient Rome. That's why it's enshrined in the Sixth Amendment in the Constitution. That's why we ban star chambers. We don't allow people to accuse others of armed robbery or murder from behind the shield of anonymity. Why do media outlets allow it in cases of sexual harassment?

Second, not everyone accused of a sex offense is guilty. Not every accuser is telling the truth. I learned this the hard way a number of years ago when I was accused of felony rape by a woman I had literally never even seen.

You bastard. When we met, it was supposed to only be to discuss firearms and post-apocalypse survival tactics. Then, you where taking off my shoes.

How could you do that to me? I'm so disgusted I'm not even going to read your article....

Why should we believe Tucker Carlson's story about the woman in Indiana who accused him of rape? All we have is his word and his characterization of his accuser. There's no other information.

Obviously I'd like to think he's telling the truth after reading this, but taking men at their word about sexual misconduct is not working out all that great these days.

The media is not a court of law. People should stop trying to apply court analogies to the court of public opinion.

Actually, I was sexually harassed once by a pair of women at a drinking party when I was a teenager. I mean, really harassed.

When I was in my thirties, a gay guy that I was friends with did it. I didn't know we was gay. He was a really good friend and we really enjoyed enjoyed each other's sense of humor. Then one day he started started rubbing my crotch. I was like, "dude, I'm not gay". And that was the end of that of that. He was really embarrassed about it, and I never saw him again.

It's okay to be gay, but damn, you should ask first. I mean, it's not like I slugged him or anything. He could still have been a friend....

#4 I've had a number of bad dates. At the risk of Sharing To Much, there was this girl I was really into who had a music degree. I bought her a gold necklace with an emerald pendant to match her eyes and hair. We where at my house, and I asked her if she wanted to shower together with me. She said yes, and I knew I was going to --------. Well, when we where in the bathroom together, she asked me if she could watch me pee. I was like "Dude, you can watch that on the internet!"

To me, that's like when Hitler asked his niece to sit on his face.

Yeah, I know I'm a big prude when it comes to non-traditional sexuality, but damn, a -------------? Really? That relationship didn't last long.

Everyone's got a different Kink Line™.

What you'll do? Normal.

What you won't? Kinky.

This is the exact situation with the accusers. Why believe one over the other? Because they are women?

Yep. Instead of grabbing crotches, they should ask "Can I give you --------"?

Dude, that's marriage material, an all she wanted to do was watch. Lady during the day, but a freak at night.

Me and Mrs. Boaz have been to a couple of Adult Bookstores and theaters. The look on some of the trolls faces are "I wish my wife would do what yours does". Having a wife that doesn't understand your freakiness, much less participate in it, is a place no man wants to be. It's what leads to affairs.

Looks like our favorite pfc hasn't discovered the internet....

Instead of taking your goa.... wife.. to creepy porn theaters, why not look for bare feet on the net?

Stoopid man.

except for that little fact of people losing their jobs and having their lives ruined based on the court of public opinion, and not a court of law.

I'm sorry, I simply do not believe 100% of the accusations made by women 20 years removed.

I say there should be a statute of limitations on accusations. Of course, most of the woman want to use sex to get what they want, then when the sun comes up, or they run out of money, they claim harassment. NO!
