Late Wednesday evening, The Washington Post grew to become the primary liberal information outlet to report the disturbing highschool rapes happening in Loudoun County, Virginia. Burying it of their “native” part, the paper ignored key elements of the story that made it a significant scandal for liberal insurance policies: the college board tried to cowl it up, had the daddy of a sufferer arrested for trying to talking out, the attacker was “gender-fluid,” and the college board was making an attempt to get a trans toilet coverage handed.
“A teen accused of sexually assaulting a fellow pupil at a Loudoun County highschool in Might can be accused in a second sexual assault lower than 5 months later at one other county highschool, in accordance with the Loudoun County commonwealth’s lawyer,” reported Jasmine Hilton, Hannah Natanson, and Justin Jouvenal.
However at no level of their article did the three journalists assume it was necessary to notice the element that the attacker was a boy who was sporting a skirt and recognized as so-called “gender-fluid.” And whereas they famous that the second assault occurred in an “empty classroom,” they failed to tell readers that the primary one occurred in a ladies’ toilet.
All of those omitted particulars had been laid out by The Each day Wire’s Luke Rosiak in his bombshell report that blew the lid off the story on Tuesday.
As for The Publish’s protection of the outrage from dad and mom, that too lacked crucial context:
Some dad and mom who spoke on the assembly grew emotional, saying they feared for the security of their youngsters in Loudoun County Public Faculties. Nonetheless others referred to as for the resignation of Superintendent Scott A. Ziegler and of the college board.
In response to the framing by The Publish, the dad and mom had been simply venting to the college board as a result of that’s who you go to for issues you might have with the college system. We once more have to return to Rosiak to get the complete context as to why dad and mom had been calling on Ziegler to go.
“Minutes earlier than [Scott] Smith’s arrest, the Loudoun County Public Faculties (LCPS) superintendent lectured the general public that issues in regards to the transgender [bathroom] coverage had been misplaced as a result of the college system had no document of any assault occurring in any college toilet,” he wrote.
That brings us to the subsequent two items of data these Publish journalists had been making an attempt to cover from readers: The varsity board knew in regards to the first assault and tried to cowl it up.
With what we all know in regards to the time line, the primary assault occurred on Might 28 with the boy being arrested someday later (since he’s a juvenile, that info isn’t public). The board then held a gathering on June 22 the place the daddy of the primary sufferer, Scott Smith, supposed to talk out it. Understanding Smith’s intentions, Ziegler tried to derail his feedback by claiming the assault didn’t occurred (famous above). And when Smith tried to talk, he was thrown to the bottom by police and arrested.
And as defined in Rosiak’s report, Zeigler successfully tried to cowl up the primary assault as a result of the board was voting on institute a transgender toilet coverage which the assault would definitely sink if dad and mom had been allowed to find out about it.
After Smith was arrested, the college board teamed up with Loudoun County District Lawyer Buta Biberja (who’s backed by liberal darkish cash donor George Soros) to make him the face of “home terrorism,” in accordance with the Nationwide College Boards Affiliation and President Biden’s Justice Division. This too was lacking from The Publish’s report.
The entire saga was a case examine in how radical liberal insurance policies make victims out of harmless folks, and confirmed an organized cover-up by folks in highly effective positions in authorities. And it was nonetheless unfolding. However the “democracy dies in darkness” 5yelll)aper making an attempt to maintain it relegated to an area crime story.
