Keith Olbermann Goes From "No Rapes At Occupy" To, Um, A Few Rapes At Occupy, But Occupy Girls Were The Victims

Who the hell else would be the victim at an Occupy Camp?

First, Olbermann and Kos laughed off the rapes at Occupy.

By the way, holy frick, Breitbart goes wild in that clip. That must have been after we both did three lines of cocaine off the shaven chest of a 15 year old Guatamalan boywhore named "Snacky-Pants."

Kos remembers. He was there.

So anyway, after Bathtub Boy and, um... what can I call Kos that he hasn't been called before?

So, Bathtub Boy and, um, Captain Vaginal Sex, I guess would best describe him there, claim there were no rapes, and laugh off the very idea of rape, Lee Stranahan sent over a list of the rapes.

Oh and there are reports of Occupy covering this stuff up, so this is just the stuff where they didn't get assaulted girls to remain silent.

Now after that, Keith decided he'd better "debunk" this rightwing slander.

Oh by the way...? Notice how perfect his media cocooning was. He never heard about this stuff. The MSM refused to cover it, and of course none of his leftwing blogs covered it, so he was, as usual, in a state of perfect ignorance about actual facts.

I won't link Olbermann's "debunking," because most of it is here, where Lee Stranahan debunks the debunking.

Basically Keith Olbermann weasels away from his earlier claim of "No rapes, no apologies," to a modified limited hangout where maybe there are some rapes, but for various reasons, they don't count.

A big one is the claim that he's not sure if the perpetrators were themselves Occupiers.

Basically he's claiming if seedy, lower-class dregs showed up to these things, they don't count, because they're not the nice upper middle class private-college white kids who controlled the events.

Of course he doesn't admit that he's wrong, despite the fact there are some rapes here.

Finally, Media Bistro weighs in and pronounces Keith Olbermann a clown.

When Al Gore hired Keith Olbermann to anchor his primetime line-up, he knew he was getting a bomb-thrower more than a newsman. Just how much more, he might not have known.

On Monday, Current’s Chief News Officer created an uproar when he and guest Markos Moulitsas joked about alleged rapes at Occupy Wall Street protests. This is always a dumb move. He later doubled-down on the stupid when he tweeted “No Occupy rapes, no cover-up, no apology, no retraction…” and accused BigGov’s Andrew Breitbart of creating the whole thing in an attempt to discredit the protests.


In his “debunking,” Olbermann changed his tune from “No Occupy rapes” to “Because almost none of the allegations are of rape and most of this list are duplicated…” to “2 stories duplicated” to “Occupy MEMBERS were victims.” That’s quite a journey in just one day, especially without ever acknowledging his position completely changed.

Even still, where he ended up, that the victims and not the perpetrators were the only Occupy people involved in these rapes and sexual assaults, isn’t the truth. After Olbermann’s “debunking, Stranahan was back a few hours later with a section by section debunking of what Olbermann said. Keith then went silent, maybe to bed, maybe to play with his baseball cards, or maybe to Stuart Smalley in the mirror to calm his nerves.

In semi-related news, Media Matters can't rebut any of the facts reported by the Daily Caller.

All they can say is that the sources are "anonymous" (but no claim they're inaccurate) and I Question the Timing.

I question the timing too. This should have been done two years ago.
