Seattle Rape Survivor Gets Ugly Liberal Backlash After Describing Her Attacker

When an alleged Seattle rape survivor shared her harrowing story, the reaction from the left was a bit less than civil — all because of the fact that the accused rapist was a homeless man.

The story originally made headlines last year, when a man named Christopher Teel was accused of raping a woman in the bathroom of a Seattle Volkswagen dealership.

KOMO-TV reported that the accuser claimed Teel followed her into the dealership’s restroom in on May 14, 2018, locked the door, then forced open the stall and forced her out.

Teel allegedly told the victim, “you want this, God wants this.” He has not pleaded guilty to the charges of rape and unlawful imprisonment, but KCPQ-TV has reported court documents indicate he’s admitted to having committed the rape. He goes on trial this month.

Recently, the alleged victim contacted Seattle City Journal contributing editor Christopher Rufo about shooting a video regarding the crime.

Rufo has reported extensively on Seattle’s homeless problem and, as he notes, Teel “had arrived from Texas as a transient and was evading multiple warrants, but the city-sanctioned encampment welcomed him without conducting a criminal-background check.”

“Nearly a year later, the victim, Lindsey, contacted me. After being raped, she had approached city leaders and met with the sitting councilman for nearly an hour but was received, she says, with dismissiveness,” Rufo wrote in a piece for City Journal published last week.

“Teel’s crime against her did not fit the preferred narrative of compassion for the homeless, so the political class downplayed it,” Rufo wrote. “By the time Lindsey reached out to me, she was ready to speak out.

“Lindsey asked me to create a short documentary so that she could tell her story in her own words. I’ve worked for more than a decade as a documentary filmmaker, but my interview with Lindsey was one of the most wrenching I’ve ever done.

“She walked me through the details of the attack and her deep frustrations with the political leadership that created the conditions for the crime to occur and then resisted making changes even after her story broke.”

The interview is difficult to watch. We warn you, graphic material ahead. Viewer discretion is advised.

2. If an asteroid hits the earth then I hope then it hits Seattle. They deserve it.

I was born there and lived there all of my life (except when away for school) until I moved away several years ago. 55 years. What liberals have done to a once great city is disgusting.
