After Hollywood sex fiend Harvey Weinstein’s conviction for rape last week, prosecutors are salivating at the new “no evidence” standard that the case has set.
The #MeToo movement has been desperate to convict men of sexual improprieties based only on the word of the female alleged victim, as they hope to take their witch hunt to a new level. The Weinstein case is their golden opportunity to finish off the Bill of Rights once and for all.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is happy to enable these gynocratic extremists who want to do away with due process and the presumption of innocence.
“It’s rape even if there is no physical evidence,” Vance said, adding that the Weinstein conviction “pulled the justice system into the 21st Century. It’s a new day. Their verdict turned the page on our justice system on men like Harvey Weinstein.”

The Black Press of America noted that this new standard could be devastating to people of color, who are no stranger to unfair and biased court proceedings:
In 2019, editors at the American Bar Association’s website noted a gaping shorting when it comes to the legal concepts of “presumption of innocence,” which is not expressly enumerated in the U.S Constitution, but instead comes from the Bill of Rights.
The general theory is that every defendant charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
“However, by the preconceived notion, a man of color accused of rape, by a white woman, is presumed guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” the editors wrote.
“In the case of a white man accused of raping an African American woman, the presumption of guilt shifts from the white defendant to the African American female victim. Here, there is a presumption that a woman is unchaste because the color of her skin is black.
“Alternatively, the standard applied to the white defendant is the presumption that he is innocent until the African American victim is proven pure, innocent, and deserving of the law beyond a white person’s reasonable doubt.”
The American Bar Association editors pointed out historical cases of Black men and boys like The Groveland Four and Emmet Till, who were falsely accused, lynched, and, or, wrongly convicted of rape or sexual assault. Till was wrongly accused merely of whistling at a white woman and violently murdered by white supremacists.
Bar Association editors Chelsea Hale and Meghan Matt further noted the 2016 case of two African American students from Sacred Heart University, was falsely accused of raping a white student.
The student, Nikki Yovino, claimed she was raped in a bathroom during a party held off-campus. Investigators said they believed the woman’s initial story who said she had witnesses to back up her charges.
However, another student came forward to show sexually explicit text messages between Yovino and the accused.
Because of that, Yovino recanted and said she was worried that the consensual encounter with the two students would harm her relationship with another student she admired.
One of the falsely accused students lost his football scholarship while both were forced to withdraw from school.
“Even though a criminal trial was never held, the two young black males were given the excessive sentence of guilt before a thorough investigation was ever conducted,” Hale and Matt wrote. ”Even with Yovino’s lenient penalty for falsely reporting a crime, these two young men’s lives have been forever altered because the color of their skin was different from that of their wrongful accuser.”
Weinstein was found guilty of third-degree rape and criminal sex acts on Feb. 24. He faces up to 25 years in prison, with other criminal cases against the Hollywood pervert still pending. While nobody will cry any tears for Weinstein’s predicament, his case could lead to many innocent men being ensnared by the #MeToo jackals.
