Late Wednesday evening, The Washington Post became the first liberal media outlet to report the disturbing rapes at high schools in Loudoun County, Virginia. By burying her in its “local” section, the newspaper ignored key aspects of the story that made it a major scandal for liberal politicians: the school board tried to cover it up, had her father arrested. a victim for trying to speak out, the perpetrator was “sexist” and the school board was trying to push through a trans toilet policy.
“A teenager accused of sexually assaulting a fellow high school student in Loudoun County in May is also charged with a second sexual assault less than five months later at another high school in the county, according to the Commonwealth of Loudoun County, ”reported Jasmine Hilton, Hannah Natanson and Justin Jouvenal.
But at no point in their article did the three reporters think it was important to note the detail that the perpetrator was a boy who was wearing a skirt and identified as so-called “gender fluid”. And although they noted that the second attack occurred in an “empty classroom,” they did not inform readers that the first occurred in a girl’s toilet.
All of these omitted details were exposed by Luke Rosiak of the Daily Wire in his explosive report which blew the lid off the story on Tuesday.
As for The post officethe coverage of parental outrage, which also lacked critical context:
Some parents who spoke at the meeting became emotional, saying they feared for the safety of their children in public schools in Loudoun County. Still others called for the resignation of Superintendent Scott A. Ziegler and the school board.
According to the framing of The post office, parents simply turned to the school board because it is to them that you turn for the problems you have with the school system. We have to go back to Rosiak again to understand why the parents asked Ziegler to go.
“Minutes before [Scott] Smith, the head of Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) lectured the public on their concerns about transgender people [bathroom] The policy was misplaced because the school system had no record of assault occurring in the school toilets, ”he wrote.
This brings us to the next two pieces of information, these To post journalists were trying to hide from readers: the school board knew about the first attack and tried to cover it up.
With what we know from the timeline, the first attack took place on May 28, with the boy being arrested some time later (since he is a minor this information is not public). The council then held a meeting on June 22 where the father of the first victim, Scott Smith, intended to speak. Knowing of Smith’s intentions, Ziegler attempted to derail his comments by claiming the attack did not take place (see above). And when Smith tried to speak, he was thrown to the ground by the police and arrested.
And as explained in Rosiak’s report, Zeigler did attempt to cover up the first assault because the board was voting on instituting a transgender bathroom policy that the attack would certainly sink if parents were allowed. to know it.
After Smith’s arrest, the school board partnered with Loudoun County District Attorney Buta Biberja (who is backed by liberal black money donor George Soros) to make him the face of “domestic terrorism.” according to the National School Boards Association and President Biden’s Justice. Department. This too was lacking in The post officereport of.
The whole saga was a case study of how radical liberal policies victimize innocent people, and showed organized cover-up by people in powerful positions in government. And it was still happening. But “democracy dies in darkness” 5yelll) attempting to keep it relegated to a history of local crime.
