At Brown University, an anonymous anti-rape activist group has taken it upon themselves to create a list of names of students accused of rape.  Why would they think it’s better to post a list of unsubstantiated claims instead of calling the police?  Probably because these liberal activists have expanded the definition of “rape” to include sexual acts that a woman regrets…  If they actually had credible reason to believe that there are rapists walking around campus, they should call 911.

They don’t.

Instead, they try to create an atmosphere of fear, of male intimidation.  And now, they’ve made a grievous mistake by putting a student’s name on the list of “rapists” only to find out – oops! – he wasn’t one.  According to the College Fix:

The group issued an apology after it was “made aware” of the mistake, but is not accepting full blame, saying it was conned by a “rape apologist” who submitted a false report.

Who couldn’t predicted that something like this could happen?  With such stringent rules of evidence these student activists must have?  This could’ve ended really, really badly for the falsely accused, but he is dealing with it graciously:

The falsely accused student holds no ill will toward the group that accused him but fears retaliation for the unwanted publicity, the unidentified student told the Herald: “Survivor support is my utmost priority.”

However, this whole incident reveals that the so-called anti-rape activists are simply trying to get attention and generate fear.  If they knew these guy were rapists, they should be doing more than adding their name to a Google spreadsheet.
