Especially when you consider conservative policies that threaten to increase sexual assault — such as Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s recent decision to reverse Obama-era policies designed to help colleges and universities fight campus rape — the far-right should be ashamed for using sexual assault as a cudgel against their perceived enemies while ignoring how their own policies worsen the problem.

You wrote an excellent article, pointed out how the far-right leaves out important information that clarifies events…..and then you went and did exactly what they do.

The Obama policies are problematic because they ignore Constitutional rights of due process, and any discussion on them needs to include the entire story. And in this case, the entire story negates your sophistry about “worsening problems.” Further, events like the Rolling Stone article and Duke Lacrosse display how important it is to not have those due process rights violated.
