Charles Ramsey is a Hero, Period.

After 10 years of being held against their will Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were rescued by good Samaritan Charles Ramsey. After a colorful post-rescue interview another meme is born, much to the delight of the internet. Of course not everyone is inspired by this story.

Now I don’t know what happened in Cleveland, but I couldn’t help but make the connection. I mean, if everybody else in the low-information crowd is going to use what happens on TV for reality, why can’t I? – Rush Limbaugh

Of course, with the Hawaii Five-0 plot and Cleveland leaning Democrat, clearly this was a welfare scam all thanks to Obama. Limbaugh is some kind of bullshit alchemist. He takes nothing and makes it into droll anti-Obama rhetoric.

Also, on today’s #TWiBRadio we discuss Charles Ramsey rescue of 3 kidnapped women, rape pamphlets are completely useless, and a Harvard Professor says economic philosophy isn’t for the Gays. Listen here:

UNC Apparently Likes Rapists

The University of North Carolina took revenge against one of their students, a rape survivor, who reported on their failed administrative policies on sexual assault. After the initial report, she discussed her experience with The Daily Tarheel and as a result, the school is bringing her up on honor code violations. Officially, she is being charged with:

II.C.1.c. – Disruptive or intimidating behavior that willfully abuses, disparages, or otherwise interferes with another … so as to adversely affect their academic pursuits, opportunities for University employment, participation in University-sponsored extracurricular activities, or opportunities to benefit from other aspects of University Life.

That’s right, she’s being charged with abusing her rapist. It should be noted that she never named her assailant.

On today’s #TWiBRadio, I beam in from the Great Northern Tundra (Minnesota) and we discuss this story with #AfterBlack‘s Josh Homer as well as denials of the drone program and apparently used nooses are what’s hot in the streets. Check it out:
