In the uber woke 4th wave feminist world, if a women says she has been assaulted by a man YOU MUST BELIEVE HER!
And if you don’t, YOU’RE WORSE THAN THE RAPIST!
Personally I think a person making an allegation needs to be taken seriously, not believed -because believing means there is no due process, but I’m old fashioned like that.
The Spinoff published a damning one sided expose hit job alleging serious sexual assault, this led to feminist journalists and right wing Pundits to declare that not only must Jacinda have known about this sexual assault, but that she actively covered it up as well.
It was a vicious character assassination against Jacinda based on nothing more than woke mantra and rumour.
A real good old fashioned witch trial.
When this erupted in the media, huge pressure went on Labour to cauterise this wound and Nigel Haworth lost his job and a review immediately called. To confuse matters, Simon Mitchell, Lawyer and Labour Party uber insider swore that the claimant had never sent the documents she claimed she did.
Well, the review is in and it is DAMNING of the claimant who made the accusation of sexual assault…
The inquiry into the allegations of sexual assault made by one Labour member against another has cast major doubts over the accuracy of the chief complainant’s story.
Labour released the report – conducted by independent lawyer Maria Dew QC – this afternoon.
It found “insufficient evidence” to back up the most serious allegations and ruled critical elements of the complainant’s version of events were incorrect.
It also said the complainant had since admitted providing “misleading information” to the investigation.
The complainant had given media a screenshot of an email and an attached document which she said she had sent to the Labour Party outlining her complaints of sexual assault.
Ms Dew concluded, on the balance of probabilities, that document was not attached.
The report also rejected the complainant’s claim that she had outlined her complaint in person to Labour’s investigation panel, saying that was “improbable” when assessed against the weight of other witness evidence.
…well, well, well. She gave the inquiry ‘misleading information’ and she was in fact in an 8 month relationship with this person she claimed sexually assaulted her, details that were NEVER part of the Spinoff hit job.
So this Spinoff hit job destroyed the young staffer, destroyed the President, defamed Simon Mitchell and allowed the insinuation that Jacinda covered it all up, all in the name of middle class woke feminism and hashtag activism?
That’s the journalism everyone is racing to support with donation is it? Puritanical character assassinations from virtue signalling evangelicals?
If you want to donate to a media that challenges the mainstream narrative without imploding the progressive movement with unsubstantiated hit jobs, you can support The Daily Blog here.
Maybe there needs to be some very serious soul searching required by everyone involved in this witch trial because one of the things that hasn’t come out is the names of the Wellington Twitteratti who rushed around the claimant and helped create this narrative for The Spinoff.
Simon Mitchell should be suing The Spinoff for every cent Duncan Grieve has managed to get out of NZ on Air.
What an appalling turn of events.
