E. Jean Carroll, Shopping for the Stasi, Mocks Real Victims of Rape
Unlike E. Jean Carroll, Elke (not her real name) is not interested in going shopping.
“It was really bad. It had nothing whatsoever to do with a hospital or medical care,” Elke told journalist Helen Whittle about what happened to her over 50 years ago in a sexual health clinic in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). As Whittle writes in Deutsche Welle,
Women and girls from the age of 12 were rounded up by the East German criminal police on suspicion of having sexually transmitted infections — in reality, Elke said, it was a form of punishment or ‘reeducation’ because ‘they didn’t fit into the system.’
The women and girls were taken to secure sexual health clinics…where they were detained for weeks at a time and systematically abused. The testimonies of women held in the clinics include accounts of rape and torture.”
“It was the systematic abuse of power by a political system,” said Florian Steger, chair of the Institute of the History, Philosophy and Ethics of Medicine at Ulm University.
So Traumatized She’s Going on Shopping Spree
Elke’s story is important not only in terms of securing justice for the victims. It also stands in stark contrast to the ridiculous, abusive and unconstitutional virus #MeToo has morphed into. E. Jean Carroll, the woman who alleges that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her almost 30 years ago in a department store, was just awarded $83 million by a left-wing jury and crooked judge in New York. Christine Blasey Ford calls herself “a survivor” and has a new book coming out.
Miss Carroll’s reaction to the Trump verdict? She is going to go shopping … and take Rachel Maddow with her. “I have such great ideas for all the good I’m going to do with this money,” Carroll remarked on MSNBC. “First thing, Rachel, you and I are going to go shopping. We’re going to get completely new wardrobes, new shoes, a motorcycle for [attorney Shawn] Crowley, a new fishing rod for [attorney Roberta Kaplan].” She went on to offer Maddow “a penthouse.”
I pray that Elke, wherever she is now, never sees Carroll saying this.
Elke, who actually was raped and abused by the Stasi, isn’t offering penthouses and spa days. From her home in Saxony-Anhalt, Elke told Helen Whittle that “she was lucky. By losing her parents at a young age and growing up in the children’s home system, she learned to be strong and fight her way through life.” “The only thing I had was psychological. I was devastated because I just couldn’t stand so much injustice,” Elke said, slowly collapsing into tears.
#MeToo Morphed Into #2+2=5
#MeToo has become a disgrace and an insult to women like Elke. Men who resist the socialist state get trashed and abused through false accusations. Brett Kavanaugh was one of them, as was I, which I write about in my book The Devil’s Triangle. Unlike the (real) female victims of the Stasi, whose trauma left them haunted by exact times, places and people, Christine Blasey Ford remembers nothing and was refuted by her own best friend — a friend who, like me, Ford’s allies subjected to extortion.
That’s worth emphasizing again. The hit on me and Brett was months if not years in the making. I was first called by Ronan Farrow, who accused me of “sexual misconduct” without telling me time, place, or even who the accuser was. Blasey Ford raised $1 million on GoFundMe and promised to donate the money to charity. Has anyone reported on where the money went? But best be careful with the E. Jean Carroll precedent in place. You can’t even refute your accusers. To do so is to risk ruination.
#MeToo is over. It has become like the Stasi who abused women and girls under communism. Bret Stephens, a New York Times columnist and no Trump fan, summed up our new rule of lawlessness:
