In an effort to “fact-check” President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address, the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post dangerously entered the territory of rape apology just days after the public learned that it buried a report of sexual assault on Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of Virginia.
“Fact check: Trump says ‘1 in 3 women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north.’ But there’s less to that number than meets the eye,” the far-left propaganda outlet said on Twitter.
If the Tweet wasn’t bad enough, the article was an all-out abomination.
“The White House attributes the 1-in-3 estimate to a 2017 report by Doctors Without Borders. But there’s less to that number than meets the eye,” the report said. “Trump states as a fact that 1 out of 3 women traveling through Mexico is sexually assaulted. But the report did not conduct a random-sample survey that could be applied to all migrant women. Instead, the group interviewed nearly 500 people whom its doctors treated, of which 12 percent were women. So the statistic is derived from the experiences of 56 women and cannot necessarily be considered representative of all migrant women.”
It gets worse.
“In the interviews, 31.4 percent of women said they were ‘sexually abused’ on the journey, not ‘sexually assaulted’ as Trump says. Considering only rape and other forms of direct sexual violence, 10.7 percent of the women who were interviewed said they were affected during their journey,” the report said.
So, in the eyes of the staff at Washington Post, there is a moral distinction between sexual abuse and rape. The paper made no effort, by the way, to note that sexual abuse or sexual assault are both bad, and that just one instance of this behavior is too many.
There is evidence that women’s bodies are used as part of the payment for being illegally smuggled across the southern border. Border Patrol agents often report that young girls caught crossing the border illegally are carrying birth control with them. Washington Post sought to downplay that fact because it hurts the Democrats’ open-borders agenda.
All of this comes days after learning that WaPo spiked a story on sexual assault allegations against Fairfax, claiming that the allegations were “uncorroborated.”
That distinction did not matter to the paper when Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who could not remember the date, time, or place in which the alleged misconduct occurred. They ran with the Kavanaugh story anyway.
It’s almost as though Washington Post has a political agenda, and that its standard regarding the treatment of women changes in order to hold water for the Democratic Party.

New York Times Op-Ed Says “Racism” Should Be Declared a National Public Health Emergency
The author is a public health researcher at Brown University.
An op-ed published in the New York Times is calling for “racism” to be declared a national public health emergency, adding that “it would be more than just a symbolic gesture.”
Abdullah Shihipar, a public health researcher at Brown University, wrote the piece published in the Times on Sunday. Shihipar decries the “effects of structural racism” as responsible for the disproportionate effect of the COVID-19 disease on non-whites. He argues that the Department of Health and Human Services should declare racism a public health emergency because it would bring “desperately needed relief to communities of color.”
“Under the Public Health Service Act, the declaration would allow H.H.S. to allocate resources and personnel to tackle the issue, much like it has for the pandemic as a whole and for the opioid crisis. For instance, it could allow workers from hard hit communities of color who lost their jobs because they had to take time off after becoming ill to use National Health Emergency Demonstration Grants to find employment,” he writes.
Shihipar acknowledges that designing policies for people of specific races could be legally dubious, but he claims that can be circumvented by “targeting communities rather than individuals.”
He further blames housing discrimination for the “high rates of illnesses” among blacks and Hispanics (he uses the utterly cringe term “Latinx”).
Believe it or not, nearly 200 communities throughout the United States have already declared racism to be a public health crisis, according to the American Public Health Association. This includes eight states, 73 counties, and 104 cities.
“These declarations are an important first step in the movement to advance racial equity and justice and must be followed by allocation of resources and strategic action,” the APHA says.
