Daily Caller Contributor Suggests That Military Sex Assault Cases Are White House Diversionary Tactics

In a bizarre new level of conspiracy theory, a contributor to the right wing website the Daily Caller theorized that incidents of sexual assaults in the military may be an orchestrated tactic — aimed at steering attention away from the White House.

In a Twitter post this Wednesday, Daily Caller contributor Mickey Kaus made the claim below:

Sexual assaults in the military are increasingly gaining exposure. A report released by the Pentagon this month demonstrated that up to 26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted in 2012, up from an estimated 19,000 in the prior year. One particular disturbing aspect of the report said that 62% of victims who reported assaults were subject to retaliation. Recently, three different military officials who were assigned the job of overseeing sexual assault prevention programs, were actually investigated or charged with committing an act of sexual assault or harassment themselves.

Kaus’s dismissal of the sexual assault issue is nothing new for the Daily Caller, which has a history of publishing content that many have interpreted to be sexist.

    Look at his eyes!!! He’s bat s**t crazy! They are really clutching at straws to find things to prove the unprovable. Remember Jason Chaffetz said that the fact that you cannot find proof is proof that there is something to find.

    What a desperate post. I guess you don’t know that Kaus writes for many liberal blogs and magazines too… and is an outspoken liberal who supported Obama in the last election.

    Really, Kata? You can say that with a straight face? I can call myself the King of the Universe, does that make it so? Just because the man has claimed to be a liberal while siding with the likes of the Wicked Witch of all that is Evil, Ann Coulter I think that the company he keeps says a lot more about him than his self identification as a liberal. He is not by any stretch of the imagination. Besides, how hard is it to believe that a Teapub would claim to be liberal, lying is their stock in trade.

    News media have their stories du jour. Give it a few more weeks, and this will be forgotten by all but a few. Mr Kaus seems unaware of this part of reality.

    Should we be surprised? There are people who have argued that government agents massacred children at Sandy Hook to prepare for gun confiscation, that 9/11 was an inside job, that the ATF decided to blow up the Murrah Building rather than use a shredder, and other BS. Claiming that military servicemembers were deliberately assaulted as a smokescreen is just another reprehensible denial of reality.

    Yes, they have, Juliet, and these are the same people who say that liberalism is a mental illness! SMH
