Olbermann Suspends Twitter Account Over Reaction To His Treatment Of Accused Rapist Assange
Mediaite ^ | 12/16/10 | Tommy Christopher

Posted on 12/16/2010 11:28:03 AM PST by careyb

Choice tidbits:

chrisatyoursix I cant wait to watch @KeithOlbermann at 8 to see why @MMFlinthelped bail out an accused rapist. 14 Dec

KeithOlbermann @chrisatyoursix you might want to read in on those charges 14 Dec

tommyxtopher @KeithOlbermann @chrisatyoursix Are you saying that holding a woman down after she tells you to stop isn’t rape? (link) Or are u saying that you don’t think Assange has been accused of holding a woman down after she said “stop?” (link)

tommyxtopher Because that’s what he’s accused of: holding a woman down after she said “stop.”http://bit.ly/fMVA7m (link)

tommyxtopher I’m not asking to be a douche, just allowing that maybe you and @mmflint really don’t know what Assange is accused of. (link)

KeithOlbermann @tommyxtopher You’ve already crossed that threshold. Do not contact me again. (link)

jsmooth995 @KeithOlbermann Your ad hominem jab, even if true, doesn’t negate the substance of his questions. And he’s hardly the only one asking. (link)

amaditalks @KeithOlbermann Well I’m no one’s hatchet man & I don’t work for any websites. So how about if you answer that question for me? (link)

KeithOlbermann @amaditalks Do you have a copy of the charges? Because until you do, the answer is, “none of us knows.” (link)

tommyxtopher @KeithOlbermann @amaditalks That’s sophistry. The “accusations” (not charges) have been reported extensively.http://bit.ly/fMVA7m(link)

suddenlyjen love @KeithOlbermann freaking the f**k out over someone asking a totally reasonable question. Congrats on being an adult, Keith! (link)

KeithOlbermann @suddenlyjen Next time you get a flock of people lying about what you said or did not say on tv, remember how you phrased that (link)

I've read several pretty lengthy accounts of the accusations but never read that allegation.

So does this mean that Keith Oblberdork will no longer be using Media Matters and wikiquote as a news source for conservative quotes by persons like Rush Limbaugh?!!

Look up “ragequit” and “flounce” on UrbanDictionary.com and perhaps you will see THIS as an illustration of those concepts. LOL.

I love it when the left eats themselves.

Take 1) Assange, 2) gender feminists and other lefties who are rape apologists for said “crusader” (same ones who gave Clinton one freebie), 3) gender feminists who aren’t.

Throw in bottle and shake up.

Watch them eat themselves.

FWIW, Assange never raped anyone.

Napolitano laid it all out on Fox.....Assange was indicted under some crazy law over there. The only thing he is guilty of is having sex with a condom which broke in the act. That is NOT rape.

Olbermann needs to defends Asshinges rape. Apparently he has issues with women as well.

Americans have said stop, and held down the OFF button in droves, but Olby remains on the air... allegedly. As for myself, like most of us, I can’t confirm if he’s on the air.

So you agree with Olbermann and Moore? There were a lot more allegations than a broken condom.

He only says that because, that's how he himself always conducts himself in his chosen profession. ;') Thanks careyb.

I gotta believe keith olbermann collects detective magazines of the 70s and 80s with the damsel in distress covers. He probably cuts and pastes his face over the guys on the covers.

He left Daily Kos a long time ago. Olbermann is a drama queen with an ego that has a voracious appetite that’s hungering for attention.

Rape??? Give me a break. Only crazy feminists who are to the left of Anita Hill think it is rape. Oh....let me amend that: only crazy feminists and opportunistic neocon sympathizers who will use any pretext to “get” Assange believe it is rape. Of course, these neocon sympathizers would belittle this rape pretext if it was used against someone they like.

Yes. You were right to qualify that. All the more amusing to see them tear themselves up over it. Hopefully when the dust settles the gender feminists will have lost some power in the left wing political spectrum - but it’s all good so far no mater what shakes out of this.

I agree with your take on this, it was not rape. But that is not the point. The feminists have been pushing the No means NO meme to the point of retroactive NO’s in some colleges. So now they have to suck up one of their heroes breaking one of their cardinal rules.

It won't matter to them. Just look at their response to the stoning of women in Muslim countries. Crickets can be heard for miles around.

I am laughing at your post. The constant references to the “Neocons” as some sort of conspiratorial group pretty much mimics a Bill Mahar rant or posts over at DU.

Generally the use of Neocon in this fashion is code for Jew hater, not that I am accusing you of that.

I normally would agree with you on the rape allegation at first blush, but I took the time to read the allegations. The women involved both were commie pinko groupies that obviously had stars in their eyes for this POS. Beyond that, this guy has some sort of thing for forcing himself on sycophantic women. The women’s story is far more credible than the refuting of it by his leftist online supporters. Asshinge has yet to state his case at all.

I wouldn’t worry if I were you. Sweden has a “Beyond a shadow of a doubt” standard in these court cases so that your idol Asshinge will be back on the streets in no time fomenting his anti American, anti Democracy ideals to all.

Hey, could you say hi to Ron Paul for me when you are at the next rally?

The problem is really the army guy who gave Assange the secrets. Assange is the courier albeit a miserable one. Yes, his name is Bradley Manning?

“Poor Keif. He could not handle what he throws at us on a daily basis.”

Aint that the truth. Talk about one of the most annoying people in the world - plus he’s a hypocrite. How I wish he’d have stayed in sports casting where his overly dramatic mind/imagination belongs.

Charge him with releasing the information then.

But he did not rape anyone by any stretch of the imaginination. That charge is 100% bogus and is the charge being levied at him.

If they can charge him for rape (for a broken condom during consensual sex) then they can charge any of us with anything.
