Did I do that?
Because we have another Duke Rape case. And this time it’s probably not a hoax.
About the author, Professor Mike Adams:
Mike Adams is a verbal “bomb thrower” ... and a tenured professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I have been following his essays at Townhall for several years. He has travelled the road from Left Wing Atheist to Right Wing Christian and is an entertaining polemicist in the style of Ann Coulter.
In his writing he examines the seamy underside of Liberal campus culture. Well, here's a seamy underside that is not going to get much sunlight in the MSM. Nowhere nearly as much attention as the trumped up Duke Lacrosse Rape case.
According to Adams, it seems that
... Duke University has another rape case on its hands. This one may hurt the university nearly as much as the one that rocked its campus back in 2006. Unlike the previous case, this one appears to involve a credible confession of sexual abuse. Like the previous case, crucial facts are already being filtered through the prism of identity politics.
Frank Lombard is the associate director of Duke’s Center for Health Policy. The university administrator was recently arrested by the FBI and charged with offering up his adopted 5-year-old son for sex. I tried to contact Frank Lombard over the weekend to probe his expertise regarding the health benefits of raping small children. So far, he’s declined to comment.
University administrator Lombard is accused of logging on to a chat room online and describing himself as a “perv dad for fun.” The detective who wisely looked into the suspicious screen name says that Lombard admitted to molesting his own adopted son. All this was before allegedly inviting a stranger to travel to North Carolina from another state to statutorily rape his already-molested adopted son.
Duke is known for its radical faculty that is a virtual parody of political correctness.
… when several white Duke Lacrosse players were accused of raping a black stripper. A whopping 88 professors signed a statement accusing the players of both racism and rape. Such was their regard for the presumption of innocence.
Perhaps even more stunning was the response of some professors after it became apparent that the white lacrosse players were innocent. After that became so obvious the school had to readmit the students, Professor Kate Holloway resigned her committee assignments in protest.
It should be noted that the DA who tried to railroad the Duke students was later disbarred and went to jail for his crimes. The Duke faculty never apologized and continues to defend its initial position. The case engendered a book and a blog, "Durham in Wonderland" devoted to exposing the sickening hypocrisy of the Duke faculty community.
But back to the current Duke Sex scandal. This time the perps are not students. He is white, however, which should make him ripe for condemnation. But ….
And here is a big but … he is homosexual. And he adopted two black children. And he is pimping these black children to strangers. And it has been alleged that he has been filmed performing a variety of sex acts on these children.
What is the proper response of the Duke faculty to this outrage? They will be torn.
White = bad!
Male = bad!
Homosexual = good!
Homosexual adopting children = very good!
Performing sex acts on children = keep you laws out of my bedroom?
What is a proper Liberal professor at Duke to do? Stay tuned.
Endnote: The Virginian Pilot had an AP story on this which told you very little. This will probably be the take from the MSM. They have more important things to inform their readers about: the death of another child abuser, Michael Jackson, and the infidelity of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. By all means, editors, stay away from this one, it does not fit the template.
UPDATE: More information on Frank Lombard. It seems that he was a Vestryman of the Episcopal Church of the Advocate in Durham, NC. The church describes itself as practicing "radical hospitality." It is also busy scrubbing its website of any mention of Frank Lombard.
I have only one comment to make about this. It is not only a cowardly thing to do, it's not a Christian thing to do.
They were perfectly happy to have a gay man with two adopted "African American" children as a leading member of the church. But he's now exposed as a pedophile practicing perverted sex with children and offering them to strangers to feed his sexual fantasies.
Now that he is exposed as a sinner before the entire world, and now that his persona is being torn down, his shame is at its peak, he is most in need of Christ's forgiveness. Christ's apostles here on earth are the members of his church. And rather than practicing "radical hospitality" they are scurrying for cover; not willing to face the sins that they have enabled.
"Radical hospitality," not so much. A bunch of whitened sepulchers is more like it.
A new and even more scandalous rape allegation has surfaced at Duke University. Yet the usual media and campus PC crowd are keeping mighty quiet. Identity politics apparently trumps all sense of outrage....
I am afraid that as far as the media and academic communities are involved, it is not the crime itself that matters, but rather whether the alleged perp is a member of an "oppressor" group. Although white, Lombard is gay, so in the interest of avoiding unpleasant stories involving homosexual adoption, the media is anxious to shut down public interest in the affair.
However, the outspokenness and willingness to judge in advance a case involving white jocks - easy targets - of Duke and media, inevitably place a spotlight on their handling of another Duke rape allegation....
All this coming in the wake of another highly publicized incident at the same prominent university? I don't think they can suppress this one. The conservative media have the power to put this case on the national agenda. It is too dramatic.
