HuffPost’s Fake News
All of which is designed to add new facets to its endless attacks against America.
America’s “rape epidemic”
HuffPost falsely claims there is a “rape epidemic” in America.
How do we know this is complete bogus? Because it mentions nothing about even the rate of rapes in the US in HuffPost’s own article.
Furthermore, have you heard anything at any (legitimate) news source about an “epidemic” of rape in the USA? No? That’s probably because there has been a steady decline in rape rates in the USA:
“According to a March 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, from 1995 to 2010, the estimated annual rate of female rape or sexual assault declined 58%, from 5.0 victimizations per 1,000 females age 12 or older to 2.1 per 1,000.”
To be clear, one rape is one too many. But just as in the case of hate crimes, HuffPost’s definition and accounting for them is straight out of Orwell, as it continues its propaganda jihad to falsely smear America as a racist, bigoted, intolerant, violent, sex-fiend nation, in its efforts to tear our beloved nation apart at the seams.
If, however, HuffPost wanted to _really_ address a rape epidemic, it would start to report on what has happened in Sweden over the past twenty years. Two decades ago, Sweden made a momentous decision, and it has been paying the price for it ever since. Or rather, its women and girls have — as it went from being one of the safest nations in the world, to now the “rape capital of the West.”
Oh, you didn’t know about that? I can’t imagine why.
As a reminder…
“If you’re looking for the usual flame-throwing, name-calling, and simplistic attack dog rhetoric … don’t bother coming to the Huffington Post.”

“[At HuffPost] there are guidelines that have to be followed — and they include a prohibition on conspiracy theories or inflammatory claims […] what the great historian Richard Hofstadter called ‘the paranoid style in American politics,’ which he defined as angry minds that traffic in ‘heated exaggeration, suspiciousness, and conspiratorial fantasy,’ and that see ‘the fate of conspiracy in apocalyptic terms… always manning the barricades of civilization’.”
