It Depends on What the Meaning of 'Rape-Rape' Is

Ezra Levant lambastes those feminists (Naomi Wolfe, Heather Mallick, Whoopi Goldberg et al) who are quick to defend accused rapists providing they're also liberal icons (WikiLeaks leaker Julian Assange et al):
We’ve seen this woman-on-woman cannibalism before. Wolf and other feminists took the 1990s off when Bill Clinton was in the White House. Despite a parade of victims from Paula Jones to Monica Lewinsky, America’s feminists decided they’d forgive a sexual predator as president if he was a Democrat — the same way they did for Teddy Kennedy ever since Chappaquiddick.

And then there’s Roman Polanski, the Hollywood filmmaker. Polanski drugged and repeatedly raped a 13-year-old girl at Jack Nicholson’s house in the 1970s. The girl testified that she repeatedly begged Polanski to stop, and was afraid of him, but that he forced himself on her. As he raped her again and again, she continued to say “no,” but he didn’t give a damn.

But Polanski makes movies, and he’s an impeccable liberal. So feminists rush to his rescue, too. Whoopi Goldberg told America “it wasn’t ‘rape-rape’. It was something else.” Got it? A 13-year-old girl who is drugged and repeatedly raped isn’t really raped if it’s a great artist doing the raping.

A philandering president who preys on secretaries and interns isn’t a bully or a sexual harasser, if he’s a liberal...
No, then he's an incorrigible charmer/revered elder statesman.

I think the main problem is the incredible confusion (in women's and men's minds) over what feminism really is. Which I blame on two important historical facts: 1) the US government effectively infiltrated and smashed the feminist movement, just as they did the civil rights movement, the anti-war movement, and the progressive movement; and 2) the angry, arrogant, ball-breaking stereotype feminists enjoy in the mainstream media is mainly the one the US government manufactured for them.

Unfortunately the US intelligence role played by America's feminist poster girl Gloria Steinem is still largely invisible to most Americans. In 1976 Steinem blocked Random House from publishing details about her CIA past (see Steinem also very effectively used Ms Magazine to create massive divisions between professional and working class feminists and between feminists and the male gender. More recently evidence has surfaced about an operation Steinem created and ran to plant "black feminists" in civil rights organizations to break them up(see I write about my experience with some of these "pseudo-feminists" in my recent memoir: THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE ( I currently live in exile in New Zealand.
