Police say liberal student activist threatened herself with rape in Facebook hoax, framed conservatives

A well-known female liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming (UW) is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative.

The obscene message directed at activist Meg Lanker-Simons was posted on a college “crush” Facebook page earlier this week and immediately ignited outrage from the college community.

“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.

Before the post was removed, Lanker-Simons commented on it and on her own blog, calling it “disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.”

She also encouraged the poster to seek help at the UW Counseling service and ends with the advice:

“Instead of focusing on how angry and turned on me ‘running my mouth’ makes you, perhaps you should listen instead. You might learn something.”

But on Monday, The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.

“Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation.

The University of Wyoming also confirmed a statement that the police had “”obtained substantial evidence verifying that the offending Facebook post came from Lanker-Simons’ computer, while the computer was in her possession.”

According to a Facebook page that apparently belongs to Lanker-Simons she is a member of the University of Wyoming Gender & Women’s Studies group as well as the school’s chapter of The Nonviolent Communist.


This could be nothing more than just a disturbed young woman seeking attention. But even if it is I think there is something revealing here.

In the past five years I have spent a lot of time on both conservative and Vile Prog blogs. What I read about conservatives on Vile Prog blogs bears little or no resemblance to the conservatives I see in the blogosphere and in real life. But the Vile Progs really believe these boogeymen exist.

Vile Prog Feminists (a sub-species of proggus vileum) take it as an article of faith that all men are misogynists and rapists. (This is probably because they are used to dealing with Vile Prog males.) So they assume that conservative males are even worse.

In the mind of this poor woman she was just creating something “fake but true”. She knows there are lots of guys like that out there, she just couldn’t find one. So she made one up. Easy peasy.

But wait! There’s more!

Since police cited her, supporters have a constructed a Facebook page entitled “Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent.”

“Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent we believe what she did was justified and deserves not to be held accountable for her accusations we stand behind you sister,” reads that page’s description.

Some people have an endless capacity for denial.

    Since she threatened herself I am glad that she recommended counseling for herself also.

  2. She’s a prog. It’s not fair holding her to non-prog standards of truth and justice. They do not apply to progs. She looks at the WH and sees “Fake but True” as an accepted way of life. Why wouldn’t she make something up? It’s what she’s supposed to do.

    When I visit most conservative blogs, if I find vile statements about liberals, especially women, they’re only in the comment sections. When I visit a lot of liberal sites, I find vile statements about conservatives, especially women, in the blog itself and in the comments. It may be a small difference, but it’s a difference. I prefer blogs where the discourse is civil on all counts no matter whether the blog leans left or right. My list of left-leaning blogs to visit on a regular basis is getting shorter and shorter. I wish there was a left-leaning version of Twitchy, for example, but I don’t think the left could pull it off with civility.

      Some people are just vile. I hate to imagine what they are like in real life.

      I am sure quite a few of them are immature losers who would never say such things to someone’s face but they turn into bullies over the net.

      I think Althouse is the closest to following a “liberal” (she voted for Obama) blog as I get these days. I had to check her wiki page for a clue 🙂 I discovered her during the Wisconsin union/ Scott Walker recall clusterf**k, her coverage was amazing.

      Oh, and another tidbit of interest, she married one of her commenters a few years ago. Head’s up Myiq ! 😉

    did you ever think that it would get this low in this country where two different newspapers from two different parts of the country would mock the deaths of 15 people.

    I cry for my country

    Not that it’s relevant, but I have never received any sexual threats like that from conservatives, Republicans, Tea partiers or other assorted Right wingers. Never. However, I’ve lost count of all the sexual nastiness that’s been directed at me from the Left, from progressives, Obots, even from alleged feminists. It’s always the same thing, rape, dismemberment, and death, in various order, depending on the flavor of the day. And when they aren’t directing all that venom at me, they’re wishing it upon Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Hillary Clinton, etc, etc.

      Throughout their history trains and corruption go together like flies and shit.

      That doesn’t include the train workers – they get screwed too.

    • Who knew that vested interests might have their hands out, grabbing every coin possible? That’s beyond belief! Doesn’t “behind closed doors” have any cred these days?

      I think the next big project for CA should be to raise money to build as ocean-connected ships canal from Bakersfield to Redding. “The Great Central Valley Canal” Think of the truck traffic it would remove from two major highways! And all the jobs it would create. With major ports in Mendota, Newman and Chico. It’s a win-win. Not that we’d build it, just raise the money to build it and use that to line crooks/union bosses/politicians pockets.
