More hysterical nonsense about Cliff Richard and Jimmy Savile. Britain’s witch hunt continues. Famous entertainers get prosecuted for "crimes" they allegedly committed 40 years ago, during the sexually liberated 1960’ies and 70ies. They get charged with alleged "child sex" with 15 year old more than willing "children", or, more absurdly, *rape charges by women who somehow were not able to clearly say "no". These men were so famous, they needed security guards to keep the screeching teenage girls away.
The source accused the police of organising a “fishing expedition”, claiming that the raid had been carried out in an attempt to generate the maximum amount of publicity. Telegraph
The prosecution is based mainly on "mutual corroboration": if 4 women, independently, allege the same type of crime, it must be true. In the case of a common violent criminal this is likely to be true. In the case of a celebrity known by 30 million women, it is quite likely that a few psychologically imbalanced women join the fray. After all, they can earn fame and money. Prosecution is also based on "recovered memories", long debunked by Elisabeth Loftus. And on rape accusations that are most likely false. Cliff Richard, like Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile, is famous enough that his case was quoted in German "Der Spiegel". Thanks to the antifeminist and his commentators for furnishing further details on the British celebrity sex hysteria.
The friend said: “The whole thing is appalling because what they are doing, they are just going in there making as much noise about it as they can and seeing if anyone comes out of the woodwork to back it up. And if they don’t, they will still have wrecked someone’s life.” Telegraph
It is amazing that the sex hysteria persecution goes against fairly decent men, and not against the 70’ies rock bands that were famous for sexual debauchery with adolescent groupies. Maybe the purpose of these sex witch hunts is to instill fear in the common decent man?
In the sexual liberation of the 60’ies, 70’ies, age of consent was considered repression of the past. A faction of the German Green PartyGerman Green Party openly favored abolition of age of consent laws, the maligned Rind Study showed that no damage can be shown to arise from *consensual_ underage sex.
When will anyone learn that if you carry out a police-media trawl of any and every celebrity, then inevitably a line of variously motivated complainants comes forward? This is just as would be expected no matter how clearly innocent is the target. And they don’t come much more obviously innocent than Cliff Richard.
