MSNBC somehow hit another new low all over again. Filling in as host on The Ed Show, Michael Eric Dyson accused George Will of being a "rapist" and "re-raping" women by writing his opinion in the Washington Post.
Mr. Will stated that colleges have become a haven of progressivism, where so-called "vicimizations" are "ubiquitous." Mr. Will writes that empty buzzwords like "triggers" and "micro-aggressions" are now thrown around colleges to the point of ubiquity.
The passage that Mr. Dyson took offense to was one in which Mr. Will stated that, at times, "sexual assault" accusations that are put forward by some women at colleges are not entirely truthful. He also stated that there is no "rape epidemic" going on on college campuses.
According to Mr. Dyson, George Will, by writing that line, "re-raped" women who have been sexually assaulted.
The host stated in his segment: "Well, when he uses words like, phrases like, 'so-called rape epidemic,' doesn't that trivialize the trauma that women have to endure in the face of the rape that they've endured? And then they're re-raped, they're re-traumatized again, verbally and rhetorically by insensitivities [sic] like the ones Mr. Will exhibited."
His guest added, "Absolutely. One hundred percent. And I think that the only way that he's able to make that argument is that, one, he's probably never spoken to someone who's actually survived rape... There's nothing privileged about it."
At no point in time did anyone quite explain how words amounted to rape.
