|He's on the slow march to destruction. One major newspaper dropped the loser. Hopefully more will come.|
The controversial Loserville panelist got dumped by a longtime syndication. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has finally gotten the message, George Will's ignorant comments about campus rape has finally gotten some attention.
This is the beginning of the end for Mr. Will. He can take his "rape is funny" to the folks over at Loserville Nation.
Will wrote a column claiming that being a rape victim is now a “coveted status” that college women seek out.
Will argued that complaints of rape and sexual assualt on college campus were overblown. He also suggested that women claiming to be raped were “delusional.”
Will’s column is syndicated in newspapers across the country by the Washington Post, which bills him as “the most influential writer in America.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which has published Will’s column for a number of years, has had enough. In a message today to readers, the paper announced they were dropping Will from their paper and apologized for running his column on sexual assault:
The change has been under consideration for several months, but a column published June 5, in which Mr. Will suggested that sexual assault victims on college campuses enjoy a privileged status, made the decision easier. The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it.
Will will be replaced in the Post-Dispatch by another Washington Post columnist, Michael Gerson.
Think Progress reports this controversy is starting to sprout legs. Hopefully it leads to a massive dump on him.
Yeah, you're entitled to the freedom of speech. It doesn't mean that you're speech can be in the nation's newspapers.
For the ignorant: RAPE IS RAPE. There's nothing funny or entertaining about it. It's a criminal act and you could spend your life in the iron college.
