Marc Morano recently published a brilliant exposé that reveals the neo-Marxist plan to install the New World Order. The Great Reset explains how progressives fabricate false narratives, with the aim of stampeding the public into demanding the passage of new laws that curtail freedom. Exhibit A is the COVID-driven vaccine mandates, face-mask dictates, and school closures, despite the fact that COVID was deemed to be “one of the least deadly pandemics…over the last 2,000 years.”
Another false narrative has taken hold in the public consciousness, a narrative that pertains to the issue of domestic violence.
Recently the Centers for Disease Control reported its latest findings on domestic abuse. The CDC found that each year, 6.5 million men and 5.6 million women are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner. That’s right – domestic violence is a problem that affects more men than women.
Indeed, domestic violence against men represents a hidden epidemic around the world. A compilation of 343 scholarly investigations concluded that “women are as physically aggressive as men (or more) in their relationships with their spouses or opposite-sex partners.” These studies were conducted on a broad range of racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups in 40 countries.
In stark contrast to decades of peer-reviewed studies, feminists refuse to acknowledge the existence of female-perpetrated abuse. That’s because they believe domestic violence is an outgrowth of power imbalances between men and women, what they glibly refer to as the “patriarchy.”
Kowtowing to the feminist line, the Washington Post recently published an article titled, “Climate Change Puts More Women at Risk for Domestic Violence.” No surprise, the article never hints at the fact that domestic violence is a problem that affects men and women equally.
The article’s thesis is that climate change and severe weather events have a “disproportionate impact” of violence on women and girls. To make such a bold statement, one would have to compare domestic abuse rates both before and during weather crises, taking care to survey both males and females.
Any guesses what the Washington Post article actually did? It cited three supposedly “objective” studies that excluded male victims
- Extreme Events and Gender-Based Violence – the authors admit to excluding “studies on violence against cisgender heterosexual men and boys”
- Kenyan Women Bearing the Cost of Climate Change – the title gives away the study’s bias
- Male-to-Female Violence in the Philippines in the Aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan – again, males are persona non grata
For example, the WaPo article claims that “One in every four Filipina women aged 15 to 49 has experienced physical, emotional or sexual violence from a husband or partner, according to a 2017 demographic survey conducted by the Philippine Statistics Authority.”
But that’s not quite accurate. The survey was conducted by the Philippine Commission on Women, hardly a source of unbiased information. And Dr. Rafael Castillo has reported that among 12-15 of every 100 couples in the Philippines, the husband is a victim of domestic violence. Add psychological and sexual abuse to the mix, and the mistreatment numbers between the sexes come out fairly even.
Even the Washington Post article is forced to acknowledge the science is extremely weak:
“The climate discourse is all about the numbers, but the evidence on violence and changes in power dynamics cannot be captured that way, and so it is not given the same weight,” says Nitya Rao, a professor of gender and development at the University of East Anglia in the U.K. “It is very difficult to make a linear connection.”
Then there’s the matter of institutional bias. At the end of the article, the Washington Post makes this admission: “The Washington Post is publishing this article in partnership with The Fuller Project, a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to the coverage of women’s issues around the world.”
Isn’t this a conflict of interest? How much was the Washington Post paid for this “partnership”? Doesn’t this violate the journalistic requirement for balanced and fair news coverage? And what about WaPo’s long-neglected coverage of men’s issues?
This past December 27, for instance, the following three stories about female-perpetrated domestic assaults appeared in the news:
- New Jersey woman allegedly shoots, kills husband on Christmas
- Florida mother stabs 3-year-old daughter to death: Police
- Woman arrested in South Carolina airport after attacking husband over ‘indecent’ photos on his phone
Did these incidents occur as a result of extreme weather or climate change? Probably not. Did they warrant coverage by the Washington Post? Apparently not.
It’s a common-sense proposition to assert that weather crises are stressful events that can trigger partner abuse. But the Washington Post needs to stop publishing propaganda-like claims based on junk science about extreme weather events rooted in an extreme gender ideology.
