Steve Sailer on the Rolling Stone campus rape case, now before the courts
Steve Sailer writes:
But in 2012 the Obama reelection campaign made the fateful decision to gin up feminist and black anger to inflate turnout. What made Trump the GOP nominee was Obama’s decision four years ago to revive grievances against white men. Perhaps black paranoia was always inevitable, but Obama’s decision to stoke women’s resentment for votes, when he’s never shown any indication of taking feminist ideology seriously, is hard to forgive.
And with Hillary running in 2016, it is now obligatory to believe the women about whatever they have to say about Donald Trump (but not what women say about Bill—don’t get the two golf buddies confused).
Second, Erdely’s morality play about what Tom Wolfe calls the Great White Defendant taps into a widespread wish that criminals weren’t so depressingly black. Indeed, Coakley’s  story closely resembles a 2013 episode of Law & Order: SVU called “Girl Dishonored.” Tom Wolfe made lots of money telling Americans the truth, but Dick Wolf made even more telling them what they wished were true.
