Biden: Men Accused of Rape Should Be Presumed Guilty

Forget about a level playing field when it comes to due process or any other application of the rule of law in America. According to former Vice President Joe Biden, prominent men should be presumed guilty when hit with rape allegations and be forced to prove their innocence. Some Americans are apparently less equal than others. In the words of HotAir.com’s Allahpundit: “He really must be serious about 2020.” Mothers should be terrified by a justice system under Biden in which their sons may soon find themselves in the crosshairs of a progressive anti-man agenda.

Here’s more from Hot Air…

He really must be serious about 2020. Nothing gets progressives as excited as taking a public dump on due process in a sex-crime dispute.

Then again, Biden has much to atone for in their eyes.

Kamala Harris: Make the FBI investigate Ford allegation, not us
From the administration that brought you the Star Chamber model for assessing guilt and innocence in allegations of campus sex crimes:

“Oh, I thought [Anita Hill] was telling the truth at the beginning,” Biden said. “I really did.”

Speaking generally, Biden added, “For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time. But nobody fails to understand that this is like jumping into a cauldron.”…

Then one question got him to cut off the impromptu gaggle. Asked whether it mattered that Ford’s claims of assault by Kavanaugh occurred when the judge was 17 and in high school, Biden demurred.
