Knowles: Of Course Women Lie About Rape

   DailyWire.com

In Monday’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show,” Michael outlines other high profile sexual misconduct cases that turned out to be false.

“A lot of people ask, why would a woman make a false accusation of sexual harassment, like Anita Hill did to Clarence Thomas at the 1991 confirmation hearings, of exposure or sexual assault, or whatever. Why would a woman make a false accusation?” Knowles said. “The short answer is I don’t know, but they do, and the longer answer is there are a couple of reasons which we have seen in recent years.”

Video and transcript below:

Hashtag believe survivors is trending. It was the top trend on Twitter, just an hour ago.

Hashtag due process has not been trending at all, and that’s a very scary thing, because if we just believe all accusations, regardless of evidence, regardless of time frames, people’s rights are going to be trampled. People’s lives are going to ruined. People are going to be smeared and mere anarchy will be loosed upon the world.

A lot of people ask, why would a woman make a false accusation of sexual harassment, like Anita Hill did to Clarence Thomas at the 1991 confirmation hearings, of exposure or sexual assault, or whatever. Why would a woman make a false accusation?

The short answer is I don’t know, but they do, and the longer answer is there are a couple of reasons which we have seen in recent years.

In 2014, the UVA rape case, gang rape case, covered in Rolling Stone. Wall to wall coverage, this girl said she had been raped at a Fraternity at UVA, turned out it was totally bogus. It was totally bogus. We found out later that she completely made it up. She made up some of the people in it. She made up the guy, Haven Monahan, was one of the perpetrators there. 2014. Why did she do it? I don’t know. I couldn’t tell you.

Morgan Triplett in 2013. She reported that she had been raped, and people took it seriously. Major investigation. Turned out she had posted an ad in Craigslist, begging, first she begged a guy to shoot her in the shoulder, no one took her up on that. Apparently, that wasn’t appealing. Then she posted an advertisement asking a guy to beat her up and then have sex with her and apparently a couple of guys jumped on that one. So they met up with her, beat her up, did whatever they did, and then she looked in her cell phone screen and said: I’m not beaten up enough, beat me more and then she reported that she had been raped. Why did she do that? Because she is a looney toon, a complete whack-a -doodle. I can’t explain that. I can’t give you a rational explanation for that, but she was a nut.
