MICHELLE MALKIN (CRTV): There is a huge double standard in the selective belief by Democrats of certain women who lodge allegations of sexual assault, or rape, or sexual impropriety, versus other women who do not fit their narrative. And there have been many GOP or conservative women who threatened the careers of lewd or lascivious Democrat men who have never gotten this kind of support.
There's another very, very important point, and I certainly don't think that it gets enough exposure in these kinds of maelstroms in the media, and that is the fact that you have these idiotic Democrats who've turned off their brains for electoral and political gain in bashing men. And the one clip that you didn't play that has really been on my mind all week is this Senator [Mazie] Hirono telling men to shut up in this debate. Would she tell that to the innocent men and their families who've been falsely accused of these kinds of allegations, who've had to fight for ten, or 15, or 20 years in some cases to get out of jail because women lied?
It is a commonality over time that people lie for all sorts of reasons, and to turn off your brain and say that there's no motive to lie when there are myriad motives to lie, whether it's for personal, or financial, or political gain, for revenge, or anger, or a vendetta. Come on, people. This is insane. And to hijack the courtroom of public opinion, let alone courtrooms of law, by overturning what the burden of proof should be here, it is so dangerous. And where are all the civil liberties advocates and people who believe in defending the rights of the accused, particularly of the falsely accused? I'm just -- I just don't know what's happened to this world, guys.
MALKIN: That ad that you just played, that's a cult, OK? These Hollywood liberal women belong to an unthinking cult. And I'll tell you, there's a huge cognitive dissidence because many of these Hollywood women are the ones who champion some of the people who have been exonerated over the last 20 years. 2,200 people, more than 2,200 people, many of them falsely accused by lying women of things even far worse than rape. Murder.
And, yet, there they are telling us we have to believe, believe, believe, believe. I don't believe a gender. I believe evidence. And that is what we have to subject this woman to, this kind of process. And the fact that she doesn't want to speak after we -- let her speak, let her speak, let her speak. And now it's called bullying to ask her basic questions about her memory and recollection of something that I, frankly, believe never, ever happened. If people do not rise up against these kind of false allegations, it's their sons, their fathers, and their grandfathers who will be next. It could happen to you.
