From Hispanic Fanatic:
...For example, [Heifer] Jones, a weather anchor for ABC’s New York City affiliate and an occasional forecaster on Good Morning America, has recently been suspended from her job and has been arrested for lying to the police.But wait...it gets better. From Associated Press:
Jones claimed that a man tried to rape her while she was jogging in Central Park a couple of months ago. After investigating her claims, however, “investigators found inconsistencies in her story and could find no witnesses or suspects” and eventually got Jones to admit that she had “spun the tale as a ‘plea for sympathy’ because of trouble in her personal life.”
Jones has been charged with two counts of filing a false police report, and she faces a year in jail or a thousand-dollar fine.
One’s first reaction to this is disgust. Jones’ actions are incredibly harmful to real rape victims, many of whom often face hostile accusations of making the whole thing up. Here we have a public figure who has fabricated a sexual assault, providing ammunition to misogynists everywhere.
Pity is also a common reaction. How messed up must this woman’s existence be to create such a grotesque tale “in a plea for sympathy to counter some unknown setback that she was experiencing in her personal life”?
Once we get past those responses, however, we see the modern twist on the Stuart trope. Jones knew that to have any credibility, her fictional rapist had to be Hispanic.
Saying the guy was black seems suspicious, because that’s what [Charles] Stuart and other liars claimed. However, a white perpetrator strains credibility, because… well… you know.
So Hispanic it is. After all, we make handy targets in political ads, and we have been blamed for everything from skyrocketing crime rates to the housing collapse. As such, creating a Latino thug who jumps women in the dark is a logical choice for the imaginary crime victim.
Jones' attorney, Paul Callan, told The Associated Press that his client would plead not guilty to any charges.*sigh* Bethany-fucking-Storro returns.
"Ms. Jones has had a distinguished career as a broadcast journalist and urges all concerned to refrain from jumping to conclusions about the unproven charges against her being discussed in the press," Callan said.
Disclaimer: Do not go out and actually kill this bitch; that's not what I'm advocating here. "Kill this Bitch" just has a ring to it. And going straight into my post right after the title maintains momentum, hence the appearance of this disclaimer at the end. Now...if you do kill this bitch, don't blame me. Don't even mention Moi. The point of posts like these is to get people to accept responsibility for their own actions, and crazies like you are not exempt.
