Members of the #FYF911 or #FukYoFlag and #BlackLivesMatter movements called for the lynching and hanging of white people and cops. They encouraged others on a radio show Tuesday night to “turn the tide” and kill white people and cops to send a message about the killing of black people in America.
One of the F***YoFlag organizers is called “Sunshine.” She has a radio blog show hosted from Texas called, “Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show.”
A snapshot of her #FYF911 @LOLatWhiteFear Twitter page at 9:53 p.m. shows that she was urging supporters to “Call now!! #fyf911 tonight we continue to dismantle the illustion of white…”
Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto, who quit the Japan Innovation Party with co-founder and Osaka Gov Ichiro Matsui last week over differences with the current leadership, told supporters over the weekend that he plans to form a new party based in Osaka.
Hashimoto will step down as Osaka mayor after his term expires in December. However, he said he wants to turn the Osaka Restoration Party into a national force that can make a strong challenge in next summer’s upper house elections, Fuji TV reported Sunday.
Hashimoto said he will not run as a candidate and added that this would be his last job in politics.
Hashimoto said he did not want to bring about the demise of the Japan Innovation Party. Nevertheless, Japanese media have speculated that some of the Japan Innovation Party’s Diet members (40 in the lower house and 11 in the upper house) may jump ship to join Hashimoto’s new party.
Hashimoto said the first big test will be whether Osaka Restoration Party candidates can win the Osaka mayoral and gubernatorial elections on Nov 22.

A Hong Kong entrepreneur has moved his garment production from the mainland back to the SAR, in a reverse trend under a new business model to address social issues and generate profit simultaneously.
The business model “Creating Shared Value” was developed by Harvard University. Adopting the model, Grandion Industrial chairman Alan Cheung Yick-lun launched his relocation earlier this year, with the mission to revitalize “Made in Hong Kong” brands.
Cheung set up an 80,000-square-foot garment manufacturing base in Tsuen Wan, where young local designers unleash their creativity and their designs are promoted to Grandion customers.
Designers collaborating with the company for the first time get to keep all the profits from the project after expenses are deducted. It also employs more than 100 retired workers and new migrants with textile experience.
“We mainly hire local designers, older technicians and migrants from the mainland,” Cheung said. “Instead of competing for cheaper labor in the mainland, I am looking for a way to utilize local resources.”
He said his company invested HK$10 million to develop the project, and expects to generate sales of HK$100 million to HK$200 million.
Three of the four production centers are now operating.
The Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund will host a forum of 100 local business leaders on September 9 to kick-start the Creating Shared Value initiative in Hong Kong.
The fund, under a Commission on Poverty task force, said only four of the 50 Hang Seng Index constituent companies could be considered for practicing shared value, but none are homegrown companies.
“Corporations practicing CSV do not only serve the shareholders, but they are responsible to all stakeholders in society,” said task force chairman Stephen Cheung Yan-leung.

OTTAWA, August 20, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A radical draft policy being proposed for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board would inject “transgender” issues in every aspect of the curriculum, while students suffering gender dysphoria will be allowed to use the bathrooms and changerooms of their preferred gender, no matter their biological sex.
The district’s draft “Gender Identity and Gender Expression Guide to Support Our Students” tells Carleton school district staff and students that they will soon have to distinguish among sexual subgroups such as “androgynous, gender creative, gender independent, gender fluid, gender variant, gender diverse, gender non-conforming, intersex, two-spirit, transgender, transsexual or trans.” Students meanwhile, can choose to be referred to by their chosen pronoun, including “they, them, zhe, ze, and hir.”
But it’s the prospect of “transgender” boys who say they are girls sharing washrooms or changerooms with teenage girls that still triggers the most alarm.
“It raises the frightening prospect of putting a 14-year-old girl in a change room next to a trans person who is biologically male, who is attracted to females sexually and who outweighs her by 50 lbs,” James Doak, an Ottawa parent, told LifeSiteNews. “These guidelines are all about accommodating a minority, making its members feel cared for, but show no concern for anyone else.”
A leader of the parents movement to stop the introduction of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s radically pro-LGBTQ sex education curriculum, Jotvinder Sodji, agrees.
“This shows no concern for the rest of the class. If I have a 13- or 14-year-old daughter, and there is some boy pretending to be a girl who wants to change next to her or use the same washroom, I will not accept that as a father. There could be a disaster, there could be an assault. And if there isn’t, this girl is still not mature enough emotionally to deal with being exposed to that. We do not hand our children over to the school system for this.”
The draft guide makes it clear that only the “transgender” student can determine his or her gender—and his or her washroom. “All students,” it states, “have a right to safe restroom facilities and the right to use a washroom that best corresponds to the student’s gender identity and gender expression, regardless of the student’s sex assigned at birth. Requiring students to ‘prove’ their gender (by requiring a doctor’s letter, identity documents, etc.) is not acceptable. A student’s self-identification is the sole measure of the student’s gender. (editor’s emphasis).”
In one passage the guide allows that school administrators must “balance” the student’s needs with other factors, “including: the dignity of the person making the request; the goal of inclusiveness; health and safety concerns; the cost of the accommodation to the district and the effect of the accommodation on the district’s ability to fulfill its duties under district policies, the Education Act, and the Ontario Human Rights Code.”
The rights, needs, modesty and safety of other students are nowhere to be found on this list, or are they anywhere dealt with in the guide.
“This is trying so hard to be sensitive to the needs of so-called transgendered students,” said Gwen Landolt, vice president of REAL Women of Canada, “that it is completely insensitive to the needs of everyone else. It is totalitarian.”
Agrees Doak: “This whole gender ideology they are pushing is completely disrespectful of people of traditional values. It’s radical and not based on biological science.” Doak and Landolt both argue that there is no science behind the ideas that there are more genders than male and female nor that people can change their gender or be born in the “wrong” gender.
“It’s shame and a fraud,” said Landolt. “You can’t change your gender by cutting off parts of your body. Supporting these children in the belief they have a gender different from their biological one is so harmful to them.”
Landolt noted that the vast majority of people confused about their gender in their teens outgrow their uncertainty in a year or two. To redesign the school system to reinforce them in their confusion “for the sake of being trendy, it is very dangerous and could do permanent injury.”
The adroit use of gender-neutral washrooms proposed in one Ottawa Carleton school for male-to-female “transgender” students is by no means mandated for all. According to the draft guide: “Use of an all-gender single stall washroom is an option students may request, but should not be imposed upon a student by the school because of the student’s gender identity.”
The guide also calls for a thorough de-gendering of day-to-day classroom and hallway practices. Lineups and other groupings by gender are to be avoided, for example. But more troubling in the eyes of some may be the decree that “curriculum and classroom materials and activities contain positive images and accurate information about history and culture which reflects the accomplishments and contributions of transgender and gender diverse people.”
Math students will be told that the empirical evidence that there are more males than females to be found among the highest mathematics achievers, and among the lowest, is wrong. According to the guide, they will be assigned to prove that girls are just as good as boys in math.
Language studies will be revamped to enable transgender students to be referred to by the pronouns they prefer. “Students who wish to use gender diverse pronouns such as ‘they,’ ‘them,’ ‘zhe,’ ‘ze,’ ‘hir,’ to identify themselves will be accommodated.”
Meanwhile Native Studies, Shop, Science, and Social Studies must all play their part in supporting belief in “the range of human diversity, including, but not limited to: a range of bodies, a range of sexes, a range of gender identities and gender expressions, and a range of sexual orientations.”
Nobody with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board would discuss the draft gender guide with LifeSiteNews. A communications officer stated, “While a duty of all school districts under the Ontario Human Rights Code, the OCDSB is committed to ensuring that every student feels safe, welcome, and ready to learn in our schools. The document is currently in draft form. It will be shared with trustees and schools in the fall of 2015.”
Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.
According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.”
The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”
Breikss is not the only WSU faculty member implementing such policies.
Much like in Selena Breikss’s classroom, students taking Professor Rebecca Fowler’s “ Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies” course will see their grades suffer if they use the term “illegal alien” in their assigned writing.
According to her syllabus, students will lose one point every time they use the words “illegal alien” or “illegals” rather than the preferred terms of “‘undocumented’ migrants/immigrants/persons.” Throughout the course, Fowler says, students will “come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions.”
Key Straughan was a kindergartener when he realized he was different.
In one kindergarten classroom, the children sat on a pink carpet. In a neighbouring class, the carpet was blue.
Straughan had been taught that pink was for girls and blue was for boys, but even then, he didn’t identify with either.
“I remember thinking, ‘There are two rooms — one with a pink carpet and one with a blue carpet. And I can play where I want in a way that other kids can’t,'” said Straughan. “I kind of realized that that was different. I totally got the idea that I’m an in-between person. I can play in either room.”
Straughan, who identifies as transgender, is now a kindergarten teacher himself — one of the few openly trans teachers in the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board.
This month, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario awarded Straughan with its 2015 Rainbow Visions Award for his work in developing materials and practices that promote the inclusion of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.
This September will mark the first year Straughan’s students refer to him as “Mr.” when he moves to Queen Mary School with the closure of Roxborough Park. Straughan, who’s biologically a woman but transitioning to a male identity, has always been known to her students as “Ms”.
Though Straughan says he would prefer not to closely identify with either gender — an impossibility when you’re a schoolteacher — he says it’s important to represent the trans community to students. Using “Mr.” makes his trans identity more visible, Straughan says.
“I feel like it’s so important for me to be seen because I didn’t see anyone like me,” he said. “I feel like the people who are gender independent, or just different, can see me and that would be helpful.”
In his classroom, Straughan uses drama to encourage students to think about what gender means. Straughan used costumes, props and dolls — including a princess dressed in a business suit — to help challenge students’ notions of gender.
A key part of this experience was a character Straughan developed named Paul. One day in October 2013, Straughan spontaneously put on some glasses and a bowling shirt with the name “Paul” embroidered on the chest and began speaking in a man’s voice and making funny gestures. In that moment, Straughan’s “kinder drag alter ego” was born.
“I put the shirt on and said I was Paul — and, therefore, I was. It’s the principle of, ‘it’s not how I look, it’s not how closely I fit into your idea of what I should be’ — but what I say I am.”
After that day, Straughan would occasionally dress as Paul — often at the request of his students. Children would ask Straughan to “be Paul today” and would plan surprise parties in his honour to make him appear.
Paul became an entry point into conversations about gender. Straughan encouraged his students to think about what a boy or a girl could look like or what clothing they would choose. They had discussions about how Paul was a boy, but had long hair or wore earrings.
“I didn’t want to do anything that would interfere with their learning or might upset parents. And I have to say that parents have been crazily supportive,” he said.
The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board has a gender equity directive that outlines the board’s approach to creating a safe and fair environment for students and staff.
It states that the board will “strive to ensure that all forms of stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, sexism, and violence against all genders, in particular, girls, women and transgender persons, are challenged and eliminated.”
Sharon Stephanian, the superintendent of leadership and learning responsible for equity issues, says there’s no specific policy that governs when students should begin learning about gender issues.
“As an inclusive community, we strive to create environments that represent and celebrate the diversity of our students and staff,” she said.
Often, Straughan’s students asked for Paul when they needed help with typical male activities — building a fort, for example. Straughan would then challenge his students by failing at the task, then telling students that “Ms. Straughan” would have to come back to help.
He also encouraged his students to use their dress to express themselves. Some children came to class dressed in costumes — a lion or a dancer — simply because they “felt like it.”
“It looks like we’re having a party at all times — which in some ways we are. But we’re still doing our math and our reading,” he said.
Paul became so meaningful in Straughan’s life that he changed his middle name to reflect his “kinder drag alter ego.”
“This is so important to my personal development and what I was doing in education,” he said. “And it was the name the kids gave me. So kindergarteners are sort of an integral part of my identity.”
Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has set a date for a party leadership election that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is bound to win, effectively assuring him of staying leader of the world’s third-largest economy.
All seven factions within the party supported Abe and there were no signs he would face a contender in the Sept 20 vote, the Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan’s major daily, said.
Abe’s once-mighty public support started sliding after scholars told a parliamentary panel in June that legislation ending a ban on the military fighting overseas to defend a friendly country would violate Japan’s pacifist constitution.
But his ratings bounced following a statement this month to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two, in which he expressed “utmost grief” for the suffering Japan caused.
Toshihiro Nikai, a party heavyweight, told a news conference last week that the whole party was moving toward Abe’s re-election and that he had no doubt about his victory.

Radical lesbian activist @EllenPage decided that @TedCruz needed a lecture from her about equality and discrimination:
DES MOINES — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and actress Ellen Page, of “Juno” fame, got into a testy and free-wheeling discussion Friday over gay rights here at the Iowa State Fair.
“I’m happy to answer your question but not to have a back-and-forth debate,” Cruz told Page, as she pressed him about discrimination against LGBT citizens, approaching him as he flipped pork chops over an open grill. . . .
“Imagine, hypothetically, you had a gay florist and imagine two evangelical Christians wanted to get married and the gay florist decided, ‘You know what, I disagree with your faith, I don’t want to provide flowers,’” Cruz said.
“I would say they should provide the flowers,” said Page, who earlier charged Cruz’s argument was the same used to justify segregation.
“And I would say the gay florist has every right to say, if I disagree with your faith and don’t want to participate…you know what? There are lots of other people to buy flowers from,” Cruz said. “…We are a country that respects pluralism and diversity and there is this liberal intolerance that says that anyone that dares follow a Biblical teaching of marriage, that is the union of one man and one woman must be persecuted, must be fined and must be driven out of business.” . . .
The senator went on to say that the much bigger challenge for gay people comes from the Middle East, where they are deeply persecuted by the Iranian government as well as the leadership of ISIS.
“On the left you hear complete silence” — “That’s not true!” Page interjected — “about Iran hanging homosexuals, and yet the Obama administration is sending over $100 billion to a regime that murders homosexuals,” Cruz continued. . . . .
“Why does the Obama administration not stand against this?” Cruz said.
“I don’t know, I’d love to talk to Obama about it,” Page replied
“Then we’re agreed!” Cruz shot back,
“No, no we’re not, don’t do that,” the actress said.
“We’re agreed! Ma’am, we’ve had a long discussion,” Cruz said.
“Yeah, I appreciate it, yeah,” she said sarcastically, and walked away.
Unsurprisingly, the liberal media tried to spin this attempted ambush as a courageous triumph for the celebrity lesbian, but Ian Tuttle at National Review isn’t buying the spin:
Alternative headline: “Actress from That One Movie about Roller Derby Confronts Princeton Debate Champ — Goes about as You Might Expect.”
Beyond highlighting Cruz’s expert-level debate skills, the exchange exposed Page’s “rejection of conscience protections altogether, and her endorsement of radical government intervention in all such matters,” as Tuttle says. Her arguments are based in the Equality Über Alles mentality that characterizes not only the militant gay movement, but also the radical feminist movement and the Left in general. Grant them what they demand today, and the radicals will return tomorrow with new demands, because “equality” can never be achieved, not even under the absolute tyranny of a totalitarian dictatorship. The Nobel Prize-winning economist Friedrich Hayek explained that “social justice” is a mirage — it seems to appear up ahead in the distance, but vanishes as soon as you approach it. There will always be someone claiming to be a victim of unfairness, so that to make “equality” (or “social justice” or, more vaguely, “progress”) your goal is to declare war on society itself, to inaugurate what Trotsky called “permanent revolution.”
No such thing as “equality” has ever existed in the history of human civilization, nor will any measure endorsed by the Left bring about “equality” in the future. The insistent demand for “equality” is nothing more than a pretext for political aggression that the Left uses to gain power by pandering to those who hope to gain some advantage from the enactment of radical egalitarian policies.
Despite her celebrity status, Ellen Page ultimately cannot escape the inevitable consequences of inequality, not even in gay-friendly Hollywood. Her high-profile “coming out” in 2014 has damaged her career prospects as an actress because, despite what anyone may imagine, the market demand for gay celebrities is much smaller than the availablesupply. Denounce the movie-going public as a bunch of bigoted haters, if you like, but the heterosexual majority (97.7% of Americans, according to federal research) expect their entertainment to be entertaining, and tiresome propaganda about The People’s Glorious Democratic Struggle for Gender Equality is not entertaining.
In reporting Ellen Page’s Iowa encounter with Ted Cruz, Politico noted, “Page attended as part of her new show with Vice, called ‘Gaycation,’ where she travels around the world and explores local attitudes about LGBT culture in each place.” What the heck? In August 2014, A&E Networks paid $250 million for a 20% share in Vice Media, rebranding A&E’s lame H2 channel as Vice TV, with Page’s gay travel show as one of the Genius Programming Ideas to justify this investment. Is this just more Hollywood politically correctness run amok? Not necessarily.
In a nation of more than 320 million people, of whom 240 million are 18 and older, if 2.3% of the adult population are LGBT, that’s a potential audience of nearly 6 million gay people in the U.S. alone. If you consider also Canada, Great Britain, Australia and other English-speaking countries in a worldwide digital media marketplace — where everything is online, just a click and a download away — you could easily envision a much larger LGBT audience, not to mention the even larger audience speaking other languages, watching with closed-caption translations.
The Global Gay-o-Sphere, as we might think of it, could be a valuable niche, and there are plenty of perverts in show business who would love nothing more than to get rich celebrating their own favorite fetishes. However, the mass market will always be heterosexual, and there is a limit to how much Happy Hollywood Homo programming the market will bear. Whether or not the LGBT Lobby has already “jumped the shark” Fonzie-style remains to be seen, but at some point people will get tired of seeingGay! Gay! Gay! everywhere, and a backlash will become evident.
And what’s up with that Donald Trump thing, anyway?
Ellen Page’s militant protest act — “Hey, let’s attack this ignorant Republican bigot in Iowa!” — may please whatever number gay people watch her Vice TV show, but what about the many millions of Americans she implicitly insults? Make no mistake: Ellen Page hates Christians and despises heterosexuality, per se, with the same kind of vindictive sour-grapes resentment of normal people that inspired radical feminists likeCharlotte Bunch, Adrienne Rich, Marilyn Frye and Sheila Jeffreys.
“The radical feminist argument is that men have forced women into heterosexuality in order to exploit them, and that lesbians, in rejecting male definitions of sexuality, are undermining the patriarchy. . . .
“Lesbianism is . . . fundamentally a challenge to patriarchal definitions of women.”
— Celia Kitzinger, The Social Construction of Lesbianism(1987)
“Feminist theorists . . . would probably all agree that the pressuring of women into heterosexuality serves the purposes of male supremacy. . . .
“Both heterosexuality as a political system and sexual violence as social control depend upon the construction of heterosexual desire. . . . A feminist analysis would suggest that the reconstruction of sexuality is necessary to undermine the sexual system of male supremacy.”
— Sheila Jeffreys, The Lesbian Heresy: A Feminist Perspective on the Lesbian Sexual Revolution (1993)
“Lesbianism was seen as central to feminism, both as a challenge to male supremacy . . . and as a redefining of the category of women, for women, and by women and outside the male hegemony. . . .
“The feminist point is that sex is central to women’s oppression. . . . Lesbianism within the feminist context was meant as a challenge to the exclusiveness and ‘naturalness’ of heterosexual desire as the only form of intimacy women are allowed.”
— Denise Thompson, Radical Feminism Today (2001)
“In the early 1970s both gay and feminis movements concurred in critiques of patriarchal, heterosexual institutions, such as the family, and their was a sense of common cause. . . . [A]ddressing the patriarchal structures that shaped family life, revealing women’s discontents with heterosexual relationships . . . feminists laid the foundation for a thoroughgooing critique of heterosexuality . . .”
— Stevi Jackson and Sue Scott, Theorizing Sexuality(2010)
Feminists have been trying to destroy the traditional family and eradicate Christian morality for more than 40 years. It is certainly no coincidence that in July 2013, more than six months before she announced her lesbianism, Ellen Page declared her allegiance to radical feminism in an interview with the Guardian:
“I don’t know why people are so reluctant to say they’re feminists. Maybe some women just don’t care. But how could it be any more obvious that we still live in a patriarchal world when feminism is a bad word? . . . Feminism always gets associated with being a radical movement — good. It should be. A lot of what the radical feminists [in the 1970s] were saying, I don’t disagree with it.”
Not content with her career as a Celebrity Lesbian, the radical feminist Ellen Page uses her influence to attack traditional morality and to ridicule Republicans like Ted Cruz for daring to argue that Christians have a right to live according to their religious beliefs.
Maybe the executives at A&E can justify their $250 million investment in this kind of hateful “entertainment” for the LGBT market, but nobody should be surprised if the dividends on that dubious investment in radicalism include an angry backlash from normal people who don’t enjoy being lectured about their alleged “homophobia.”
“The evidence shows conclusively that moral and religious views form the only basis for a belief that same-sex couples are different from opposite-sex couples.”
— U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker,
Aug. 5, 2010, San Francisco v. Schwarzenegger
“Believe me, sir, those who attempt to level never equalise. In all societies, consisting of various descriptions of citizens, some description must be uppermost. The levellers therefore only change and pervert the natural order of things; they load the edifice of society, by setting up in the air what the solidity of the structure requires to be on the ground.”
— Edmund Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France
Do we want “equality” or do we want liberty? This is really the question, and Americans should not be compelled to apologize for our love of liberty. From the Reign of Terror in France to the “Killing Fields” of Cambodia, we have repeatedly seen atrocities radicals have justified in the name of “equality,” and the feminist movement has been forever stained with innocent blood by its advocacy of the abortion holocaust. Why is it that extraordinarily privileged people like Ellen Page believe the rest of us are ignorant bigots in need of their lectures? Do they suppose that we know nothing of history? Do they believe we are incapable of rational judgment? Do they imagine that we cannot justify our opposition to their radical agenda?
Or do they think that we simply lack courage to fight for truth?
Qingdao Airlines has confirmed that it requires its flight attendants to maintain strict weight requirements down to as little as 50 kilograms (110 lbs), partly due to reasons of “flight safety”.
Earlier Chinese reports showed a color-coded chart (below) purportedly used by the airline that indicates the ideal weight of a flight attendant as determined by her height.Qingdao Airlines flight attendants that allow their weight to fall into a “yellow zone” were supposedly grounded from flying, while those with a weight that fall into in a “red zone” are immediately terminated.
The Qingdao Airlines spokesperson denied these allegations, and explained their chart is not a tool for managing its current employees, but a guide for hiring new recruits:
The chart seen in the article refers to a standard that we use when hiring flight attendants. Every airline has their own recruiting requirements. Our company’s requirements are slightly high.
Qingdao Airlines’ own website under “Flight Attendant Recruiting” shows all new applicants must be under 30 years old and fall within this formula for weight: [height(cm)-110]=weight(kg)(1±10%). This means that a 165 centimeter-tall (5’5″) applicant must weigh no more than 50 kilograms (110 lbs), while a 172 centimeter-tall (5’8) applicant can be no more than 68 kilograms (150 lbs).
The Qingdao Airlines spokesperson said the vast majority of its flight attendants comply with its weight requirements. The spokesperson did not say what punitive actions would be taken if its company’s weight regulations were violated.
The spokesperson further clarified that flight attendants must adhere to their rigorous weight requirements as a way to maintain “flight safety”:
We consider that if the weight of a flight attendant is excessive, her ability to react during an emergency situation will be inadequate, which is why we hope they will be able to maintain their figures.
China’s National Civil Aviation Bureau also thinks the weight of a flight attendant is relevant to the safe operation of an airliner. A representative for the bureau confirmed there is a correlation between the weight of a flight crew member and aircraft safety because when calculating the load of an airplane, the total weight of a flight crew must be taken into account. Therefore, the representative said, the weight of a flight attendant can not be excessive.
No standards pertaining to the weight of pilots was mentioned in the report.
Chicago Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose is in the middle of a civil suit against him for allegedly raping a woman at her apartment in August of 2013. You can read the “complaint” here.
According to reports, Rose and two of his friends are accused of breaking into her apartment and taking turns raping her. This, according to a friend of the accuser, was after a failed attempt by Rose to drug and rape her at a party in his Beverly Hills home earlier in the night.
The accuser, who at this point is referred to as “Jane Doe,” is seeking unspecified damages due to physical and emotional trauma, as well as post traumatic stress disorder.
In a statement, Rose’s lawyer, Lisa Cohen, states that:
This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete.
I don’t know Derrick Rose so I can’t speak to whether or not he’s respectable, but we here in the ‘sphere know a potential false rape accusation when we see one, and this particular one is a layup. Here’s why we have strong doubts about it’s validity.
She didn’t go to the police
Jane Doe claims she didn’t go to the police out of embarrassment and shame, and was concerned her conservative family would find out.
Doe claims she doesn’t remember much about the facts surrounding the events, but according to reports she definitely recalls every gruesome detail of her brutal rape:
“Jane has very little recollection of the events that followed given her incapacitated state of consciousness, with a recollection of only few second flashes at a time,” the lawsuit states. “However, Jane does recall brutal details of the rape.”
If a woman was gang raped and knew she was being gang raped, she’d file a police report.
Back in January, retired porn star Cytherea was forcibly raped multiple times by three men. She immediately went to the police, filed a report, and the three suspects were apprehended and are awaiting trial in Las Vegas.
The bottom line here is that genuine rape victims go to the cops. This woman waited two years to bravely come forward and regale the world with her harrowing experience with an NBA star and his two sex hungry friends, a story that just so happens to potentially make her a large amount of money. Which brings us to…
She stands to make a large amount of money
This one’s not hard to figure out after reading a detailed account by Yahoo! Sports:
“As a direct consequence of these unlawful acts, plaintiff has suffered severe physical injury, emotional distress including post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as economic, consequential, and other damages,” the suit contends.
When the 2015-2016 NBA season starts, Derrick Rose will be in year three of a five year, $95 million contract with the Chicago Bulls. He also has a $185 million shoe deal with Adidas.
So let’s unpack this, shall we?
Imagine this scenario: girl meets NBA star at a party, they exchange numbers, fuck for two years, then when she learns of his $280 million windfall from his contract and shoe deal, she decides that 24 months after they ended their consensual sexual relationship that she was gang raped by him and two of his friends. Sound plausible?
Rose’s lawyer hit the nail on the head when she called this feeble accusation a shakedown. In my opinion, the slut lost her job and decided to cash in on a two-year tryst with a professional athlete and set herself up for life.
Is this ever going to end?
Not likely. Professional athletes will always draw attention from beautiful women, so their commingling isn’t going to end any time soon.
I’ve stated before that it’s open season on professional athletes on all levels. Combine that with rape hysteria and the sports media publicizing baseless rape claims by side chicks-a-plenty, you can be sure that more are on the way.
Rose’s case will hopefully be open and shut because there is no evidence of rape whatsoever. But similar to walking a suspect into the courtroom in his orange jump suit while shackled at the wrists and ankles to increase the appearance of guilt, ESPN continues to scroll every single rape or domestic violence accusation or report across that famed bottom line.
Females the world over see the fame and publicity that even a thinly-veiled money grab can get them, along with interviews for their “bravery” which ultimately lead to their end game…money.
Based on the shaky facts of the case it appears that, aside from a few weeks of bad publicity, Rose will likely come out of this ordeal unscathed. The Bulls haven’t taken the Baltimore Ravens approach by tearing up his contract (the collective bargaining agreement in the NFL allows this for any reason) and Adidas has voiced their support for Rose stating that their partnership with him is unwavering.
Derrick seems confident as well:
“I am just focusing on staying healthy and getting ready for the season,” Rose said in the statement. “I am not going to comment other than to say — I know the truth, and am confident I will be proven innocent.”
At the end of the day, this appears to be another false rape claim by a woman looking to finance her useless life by exploiting a professional athlete.
