Let’s review some of Stein’s finer points (emphasis added):
If he is such a womanizer and violent guy with women, why didn't he ever get charged until now? If he has a long history of sexual abuse, how can it have remained no more than gossip this long? France is a nation of vicious political rivalries. Why didn't his opponents get him years ago?So DSK’s long history of sexual abuse has been the subject of rumors? Perhaps he’s never been charged because he picks women who are most vulnerable (immigrant maids, the daughters of people who work for him and fear losing their jobs) and least likely to report the crime. He certainly wouldn’t be the first Important Man/”Womanizer” who eluded justice based solely on his position (See: Clinton, William Jefferson). Further, I am surprised that Stein confuses the terms “womanizer” and “rapist”. There is a distinction.
In life, events tend to follow patterns. People who commit crimes tend to be criminals, for example. Can anyone tell me any economists who have been convicted of violent sex crimes? Can anyone tell me of any heads of nonprofit international economic entities who have ever been charged and convicted of violent sexual crimes? Is it likely that just by chance this hotel maid found the only one in this category? Maybe Mr. Strauss-Kahn is guilty but if so, he is one of a kind, and criminals are not usually one of a kind.Soooooooooo, economists are economists and criminals are criminals therefore, economists cannot be criminals. Huh? Are economists, by virtue of their vocation exempt in all cases or just sex crimes (what is the profession of the "typical" rapist by the way?)? Well, after all, we’re not just talking about any old economist-this guy is the head of a nonprofit international economic entity! Men like him are NEVER convicted of sex crimes. It says so in the Kennedy family collaborated handbook The Rules for Avoiding Prosecution (Rule One: In a civil society Important Men can never be guilty of a crime against domestic servants, bar maids or other various lower class women whose purpose is to tend to our needs).
The prosecutors say that Mr. Strauss-Kahn "forced" the complainant to have oral and other sex with him. How? Did he have a gun? Did he have a knife? He's a short fat old man. They were in a hotel with people passing by the room constantly, if it's anything like the many hotels I am in. How did he intimidate her in that situation? And if he was so intimidating, why did she immediately feel un-intimidated enough to alert the authorities as to her story?Now that is a real head slapper, isn’t it? She must have not fought hard enough and she couldn’t have been too upset anyway or she wouldn’t have reported the crime because crimes are only ever reported by the calm and un-intimidated. May I just quote Stephen Green here-“Dumb ass!” Everything in that paragraph screams, “lying, little trollop!” In fact the entire crux of Stein’s eight points in defense of Strauss-Kahn is that the accuser is a maid (though at one point he does say that he is sure that she is a “very fine woman” *sniff*) and that Strauss-Kahn is A VERY IMPORTANT MAN.
Yes, woman have falsely accused men of rape. It does happen. That doesn’t explain or excuse Stein’s obvious disgust that THAT woman has the nerve to accuse THIS man. Little Miss Attila has an explanation and sadly, she does seem to be on to something. We (the generic “we”) are appalled that in Islamic countries a woman and her word (particularly in a rape case) are worth less than that of a man but in some segments of our “modern” society is that not equally true? The maid in this case will not be stoned to death for the crime of allowing herself to be raped and then compounding her crime by reporting it but Stein sure is willing to piller her for the ultimate crime of not knowing her place.
And now for something entirely different, schlong.
