“Left’s False Narrative: Trump Administration ‘Pro-Rape’ for Scrapping Obama Campus Sex Policies”
By Dr. Susan Berry
The left’s latest false narrative is that the Trump administration is “pro-rape” because the education department is scrapping former President Barack Obama’s campus sexual misconduct policies.
Democrat politicians, Hollywood elites, and feminist and LGBT advocacy groups are blasting U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s announcement last week that her department is rescinding the Obama administration’s “guidance” on sexual misconduct that turned over serious sex assault allegations to untrained “kangaroo” courts on college campuses…
In a letter Friday, Acting Assistant Secretary for the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights Candice Jackson summarized the problems with the 2011 Obama-era Dear Colleague letter, which many political activists on the left and in administrative positions in colleges and universities now assume is the law:
The Letter insisted that schools with an appeals process allow complainants to appeal not-guilty findings, even though many schools had previously followed procedures reserving appeal for accused students.

The Letter discouraged cross-examination by the parties, suggesting that to recognize a right to such cross-examination might violate Title IX.

The Letter forbade schools from relying on investigations of criminal conduct by law-enforcement authorities to resolve Title IX complaints, forcing schools to establish policing and judicial systems while at the same time directing schools to resolve complaints on an expedited basis.
The Letter provided that any due-process protections afforded to accused students should not “unnecessarily delay” resolving the charges against them.
