Lena Dunham’s Self-Pity Responds To Barry [Last Name Unknown]

12:59 PM 12/10/2014

Lena Dunham was paid lots and lots of money to write a memoir. In it, she claimed to have been raped at Oberlin College by a "mustachioed campus Republican" named Barry. Barry wore purple cowboy boots and hosted a radio show that Dunham called by name. She assigned a number of other specific details to Barry. Also, she didn't say that "Barry" was a pseudonym, as she did when writing about several other people who've been lucky enough to wander into her life.

I'm a racebaiting racist for listening to what this woman has to say, and I'm an even bigger racebaiting racist for sharing it with you. That's because she doesn't think of herself as a victim, she doesn't excuse criminal behavior, and she's not going to be bullied into silence.

Last week, Breitbart's John Nolte did the job the mainstream media doesn't want to do: He tried to determine if there's any factual basis for Lena Dunham's rape accusation in her best-selling memoir, Not That Kind of Girl. In it, Dunham claims that an Oberlin "campus Republican" named "Barry" raped her when she was 19. As it turns out, at the time there was only one Republican on the Oberlin campus named Barry, and he says he didn't do it.

Who, If Anyone, Raped Lena Dunham?

The last time I paid any attention to Lena Dunham, she was explaining why she wasn't really comparing herself to a sexual predator when she compared herself to a sexual predator. Now her claim to have been the prey in another act of sexual assault is being fact-checked. This is bad news for people who don't think facts matter in such accusations.
