This bitch gonna rape herself!

http://www.campusreform.org/blog/?ID=4731
Quote:
A well-known female liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming (UW) is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative.

The obscene message directed at activist Meg Lanker-Simons was posted on a college “crush” Facebook page earlier this week and immediately ignited outrage from the college community.

“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.

Before the post was removed, Lanker-Simons commented on it and on her own blog, calling it “disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.”

She also encouraged the poster to seek help at the UW Counseling service and ends with the advice:

“Instead of focusing on how angry and turned on me ‘running my mouth’ makes you, perhaps you should listen instead. You might learn something.”

But on Monday, The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.

"Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it," according to the citation.


The University of Wyoming also confirmed a statement that the police had “"obtained substantial evidence verifying that the offending Facebook post came from Lanker-Simons' computer, while the computer was in her possession.”

According to a Facebook page that apparently belongs to Lanker-Simons she is a member of the University of Wyoming Gender & Women's Studies group as well as the school’s chapter of The Nonviolent Communist.

Since police cited her, supporters have a constructed a Facebook page entitled “Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent.”

“Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent we believe what she did was justified and deserves not to be held accountable for her accusations we stand behind you sister,” reads that page’s description.

Lanker-Simons was in the news in 2010 when she was a plaintiff in a successful lawsuit against UW after it retracted its invitation to have Bill Ayers speak on campus.


Alright

1.
2. Police charges?
3. Nonviolent Communist?
4. Successful lawsuit against UW for uninviting Bill Ayers to something?

There's a lot to take in

A lot of college kids are uber liberal these days because it's "hip". Total ignorance. I'm not even sure most of them even know why or what being liberal is.

Is it "hip"? Is this a recent trend? Were young people conservatives before that?

Definitely not recent, probably as old as politics themselves.

That's the one.

Quote:
In October 2008, Ashley Todd, a volunteer for the U.S. presidential campaign of Republican John McCain, falsely claimed to have been the victim of robbery and politically motivated physical assault by a supporter of McCain's Democratic opponent Barack Obama.

The story broke less than two weeks before the 2008 United States presidential election on November 4. Todd later confessed to inventing the story after surveillance photos and a polygraph test were presented. She was charged with filing a false police report, and entered a probation program for first-time offenders.
This chick is truly an idiot. Her Wiki is a good read.

A. Being less responsible with finances is indicative of being young not one's political ideology.

B. Republicans, so called "conservatives", are notorious for making issue like abortion, gay marriage and religion at the forefront of their platform. For many Republicans that's their deciding factor above all else.

C. Your "observations" are jaded by your own disposition.

I support all the liberal beliefs you brought up. So are you saying parents are doing a bad job these days educating their children about finances? Passing the blame eh?

Why are there adults who don't bode well with finances? It's not just indicative of being young. That's a cop out.

According to you I am "liberal" and I certainly do well with my finances. Mind blown? Who knew such contradictions could exist.
