The Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals reversed a U.S. District Court decision, the panel ruled Friday that a former athlete’s suit against Columbia University, which suspended him for a year for “sexual assault: nonconsensual sexual intercourse,” may go forward based on his claim that university officials acted with anti-male bias, in violation of Title IX.

One of the things about this rape culture ideology is this argument that constantly gets made: that by questioning the existence of a rape culture, you are perpetuating rape culture…It’s an extremely circular argument, and it reminds me a little bit of arguments that were being made during the Salem Witch Hunts.

What started out as a law to give women more opportunities in higher education has morphed into a bureaucratic monster that destroys due process of law, sets students against each other, and encourages bureaucrats to search for new ways to expand their authority…the new federal standards come with the expectation that officials convict male students who are accused of sexual assault, regardless of their guilt or innocence.

“John Doe” filed a federal lawsuit earlier this month claiming Rider University kicked him out of school and “blindly accepted” a female classmate’s claims that he sexually assaulted her. While John was forced to sit at home, he was subjected to a Title IX disciplinary process that was unabashedly pro-complainant, refused to afford him any semblance of fundamental fairness, and considered him guilty until proven innocent.

There is a strange fiction that dominates American college campuses. It is the belief that America’s most “tolerant,” progressive, and sensitive communities are simultaneously virtual hellholes for marginalized members of the community, justifying emergency extra-constitutional measures designed to end oppression and defend the defenseless. Thus, the federal government hypes false statistics that a staggering 20 percent of female students will be victims of sexual assault. Thus, campuses implement disciplinary practices and policies that deny due process and treat straight men as guilty until proven innocent. And, colleges claim, it’s all necessary. After all, rape and sexual harassment represent life-changing traumas. False accusations and unjust punishment? Well, that’s just a momentary inconvenience – a small price to pay for the cause of social justice… Tell that to the family of Thomas Klocke, a student at the University of Texas at Arlington.
It is impossible to overstate the growing weirdness of the college sex scene. Campus feminists are reimporting selective portions of a traditional sexual code that they have long scorned, in the name of ending what they preposterously call an epidemic of campus rape.

The most terrifying book you will read this year isn’t written by Stephen King. It’s written by a lawyer and a history professor, and it will blow your hair back. The book is The Campus Rape Frenzy: The Attack on Due Process at America’s Universities, by KC Johnson and Stuart Taylor, Jr. I cannot recommend it highly enough. There are too many things to praise about this book, so I think I’ll just focus on my favorite part – what it does to the faulty, yet oft-repeated, statistics in this area…The book is much more than statistics, of course. Johnson and Taylor do a terrific job highlighting the terrible abuses of due process on college campuses across the country, the find-guilt-at-all-costs mentality of many Title IX coordinators, and the sheer hypocrisy of liberals who once claimed to care about due process.

Drake University in Iowa has fired a trustee board member after expelling his disabled son, who alleged he was the victim of a rape by a female student. Both students filed complaints, but only the male was investigated. The son’s lawsuit alleges that both he and the female were intoxicated, and she initiated oral sex on him. It added that he wasn’t “in a state to be with her” and “not able to give consent that night.” Trustee Tom Rossley, who had been on Drake’s board for 23 years, accused the college of failing to accommodate his son’s “ADHD, anxiety, and language-based learning disabilities” and claimed that the female said “on the record” during a hearing that she indeed has initiated sex without the son’s consent. Rossley was told to stop complaining about the process and eventually was asked to step down from his position.

Fifty years ago a white woman accused 14 year old black Emmett Till of sexual assault. It turns out her accusation was false, Throughout America, college campuses are reliving the Jim Crow South where black men stereotyped as rapists were lynched by the Ku Klux Klan. Today at colleges when a white female accuses a black male of assaulting her, Title IX teaches (religiously) that she is to be believed. This brazen and radical feminist stance of ‘believe’ is leading to hundreds of innocent males being Title9 falsely accused, expelled and denied a college education for life. Many of the accused males are black without resources to defend their innocence. Below are true stories of alleged campus sexual assaults involving white girls who Title9 accuse blacks. ALL BLACKS WERE Denied a FAIR HEARING, Denied DUE PROCESS, and denied the PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE.
Sacred Heart University: White Female and 2 Black Males have consenting sex, She cries rape. 2 BLACKS EXPELLED White Female is charged w making a false allegation. 2 Black Males never get their college education or scholarship back.
Florida State University: White Female and Black Male athlete have consenting sex. Female accuses. Black Male is found innocent three times. White Female shifts story, contradicts evidence. White Female seeks celebrity and $$ while BLACK MALE IS SLANDERED.
False accusations exist. Due Process is essential for justice. Alice
COURT ORDERS LA SIERRA UNIVERSITY TO HALT EXPULSION OF STUDENT IN TITLE IX SEXUAL MISCONDUCT CASE
Riverside, CA – La Sierra University has been ordered to stop the expulsion of an international student pending court review of the university’s Title IX sexual misconduct disciplinary process. The stay order, issued July 15, 2016 by Riverside Superior Court Judge John D. Molloy, allows the student to stay enrolled and register for classes for the Fall term. John Doe, as student is identified in court records, claims that the university sought to expel him and to revoke his student visa status on May 10, 2016, without any hearing and without identifying the witnesses against him or disclosing any evidence to him. A court hearing on John Doe’s appeal is scheduled for September 16, 2016.
Over 4,100 colleges and universities, with 20.6 million undergraduate and graduate students, are impacted by efforts of the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Office of Civil Rights to withhold federal education dollars in order to compel colleges and universities to address sexual violence on their campuses. According to court filings, La Sierra University, a private college founded by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, receives some $30 Million in federal education funds annually.
Case is filed as John Doe v. Marnie Straine, Interim Title IX Coordinator, et al., Riverside County Superior Court Case No. RIC 1606115.
