Ann Coulter on Allegations Against Herman Cain
Ann Coulter on the lack of details in the allegations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain:
If the details helped liberals, we’d have the details.
To have been accused of sexual harassment in the 1990s is like having been accused of molesting children at preschools in the 1980s or accused of being a witch in Massachusetts in the 1690s.
Everyone knows the history of the witch trials but if you’ve forgotten the preschool molestation hysteria of the 1980’s you can refresh your memory by taking a look at No Crueler Tyrannies, Accusations, False Witness and Other Terrors by Dorothy Rabinowitz.
In the 1980’s dozens of innocent people were falsely accused of child molestation in day-care centers. Most were convicted on the dubious and coached testimony of very young children. They usually spent several years in prison before having their convictions overturned. For example, Florida State Trooper Grant Snowden spent 10 years of hell in a Florida prison before his conviction was overturned and he was set free. He was entirely innocent of the crime, and there was no “real molester” because the crime itself was trumped up. It never happened. A young child was abused in that case, however. The abuser was not a child molester, it was Janet Reno as state’s attorney at the time who railroaded Mr. Snowden on false charges and made a young child grow up believing he had been a victim of child abuse by a trusted adult, when in reality he had never been molested or sexually abused at all. That child, whoever he is, is probably an adult today who believes he was sexually abused as a child when in reality, nothing of the sort happened.
On sexual harassment charges in the 1990’s the feminists were successful in getting many people to believe that women don’t lie about male sexual misconduct. That has been shown to be a myth. Women do lie about such things, and they lie about it quite a lot. No study should have been needed to know that women lied about sexual misconduct in the 1990’s because when there is money to be had for telling stories that accord with people’s preconceived notions or advance a popular political agenda, lying will become rampant.
