The Latest (and Wildest Yet)
If you don't know by now that I will refer you either to Lawrence Auster or to the American press, you will never know. Here are today's pickins:
First read the Daily Mail, if you have not done so.
Reactions from Alexis Zarkov, one of Lawrence Auster's regular readers:
If these reports are correct, then what happened went exactly as I predicted except DSK thought he was getting free oral sex, but the maid had other ideas. Their subsequent altercation was over money. Any physical violence had nothing to do with a rape. However I'm skeptical he expected free "enhanced room service." DSK can't be that naive. This story is a cover to protect him from a charge of soliciting a prostitute. By saying he thought he was getting free sex, he avoids even a minor prosecution. And who is to contradict him? The Maid? She has zero credibility. Case closed.
Every day in every way Cyrus Vance Jr. looks like an idiot, a fool, and an incompetent. He needs to resign.
I reported on the departure of Lisa Friel from her position as chief of sex crimes unit in Manhattan. Here is more evidence that she had urged D.A. Cyrus Vance to wait for more facts about Nafissatou Diallo before rushing to judgment.
Are you interested in the reaction (spelling mistakes and all) of one very liberal New York Times reader? The comment can be found at VFR, quoted by Dean Ericson, a regular of the site:
Who are you people to judge this victim? She came to this country to escape unimangible horror, the likes of which would make the readers (who live comfortable, Western lives) want to run for the hills. She has seen others who share her religion being persecuted in places such as Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq. She has expeienced first hand the persecution that is suffered by women worldwide, especially single mothers such as herself. She has expereinced the degrdation the U.S. visits upon immigrants who seeks asylum. Then she was accosted by a rich, white man who was imposing a personal brand of imperialism upon her. And you want to judge her by Western standards, the same standards that are responsible for the degredation that are visited upon her. Throw DSK in jail for a long time. Give this brave woman an immediate path to U.S. citizenship. Judge not lest you be judged. The Manhattan District Attorney should be commended for championing the rights of this poor victim.
Finally, the maid let no moss grow while housed in a Brooklyn hotel at the D.A.'s expense. Read this amazing Post article.

Note: A couple of minor changes were made to clarify the names of readers at Lawrence Auster's website VFR. I apologize for any misrepresentation that I may have inadvertently caused.
