Liberal rape fantasy
Liberal blogger Meg Lanker-Simons really, really wanted to be threatened with rape by a Republican so much she even fantasized about it on Facebook:
The University of Wyoming Police Department says Meg Lanker-Simons created the anonymous threat of sexual violence targeted at her on social media last week.
The university announced Tuesday that campus police cited Lanker-Simons for misdemeanor interference with a police investigation.
Lanker-Simons accused an anonymous source of posting a threat of rape on the Facebook page “UW Crushes” on April 24. But the citation issued Monday claims Lanker-Simons admitted to making the post, then lying about it.
The UW senior told the Star-Tribune on Tuesday that the police accusations were untrue. Lanker-Simons said she retained legal counsel and filed an entry-of-appearance plea of not guilty. The citation set a court date for May 13. Charles Pelkey, Lanker-Simons’ attorney, declined to comment.
UW Crushes was a forum designed for students to anonymously write about their love interests and sexual desires. UW administrators have since had the page removed. Prior to its removal, anyone could have signed into a Facebook account, gone to UW Crushes and secretly submitted a comment via a link to surveymonkey.com. The posts were then made public on Facebook.
“I want to hatef— Meg Lanker- so hard,” the Facebook post read. “That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and she’s gonna be a good Republican b—-.”
Campus police contacted Lanker-Simons after the post generated a significant number of comments on social media and university officials were swamped with comments and inquiries.
The police obtained a search warrant to search Lanker-Simons’ computer and found “substantial evidence” the threat was created on her computer while it was in her possession, according to a media release from the university.
Because the cause meant more to Lanker-Simons than any moral obligation not to libel an entire group, she made it more difficult for other women to be believed when they come forward when threatened or raped. For that, Lanker-Simons was charged with a misdemeanor.
Since her crime was meant to attack a group (Republicans) shouldn’t she be charged with a hate crime?
