Activist Donna Hylton made a five-minute speech on the featured stage of the DC Women's March. She spoke in-between Cecile Richards (the head of Planned Parenthood), Kiera Johnson (the executive director of URGE - wearing the white "abortion" smock), the reggae-folk-singer (I didn't get her name) and Stephanie Schriock (president of Emily's List). Like many of the speakers, Hylton also was interviewed by and appeared on various television shows where she was given the opportunity to make the case for the March.
As far as I know, no one asked about her past. If they knew of it, they didn't speak about it.
Ms. Hylton spent 27 years in prison for participating in a horrific crime. But as far as I can tell, she's not repentant. Indeed, judging from her speech at the Women's March, she wears her imprisonment as a badge of honor against "injustice."
The young Hylton was one of four women and three men men who participated in the kidnapping, attempted ransom, torture, rape and murder of a white real-estate broker, Thomas Vigliarole. They had been hired by an associate of Vigliarole to extort money from him. But the kidnapping escalated into a deadly session of sexual torture and rape.
The case, notorious at the time (1985) in New York City and Long Island, has some similarities with the recent kidnapping incident in Chicago.
Except that it was a thousand times worse.
Vigliarole believed the three girls were prostitutes who were going to have sex with him. Instead, they picked him up on March 8 in Elmhurst, Queens, at Maria’s home, and drugged him to make him drowsy. Then they drove him to Selma’s apartment in Harlem. The apartment had already been prepared for an extended torture session: The closet door had been cut, a pot put in it for use as a toilet, the windows boarded.
For the next 15 to 20 days (police aren’t sure just when Vigliarole died), the man was starved, burned, beaten, and tortured. (Even 10 years later, Spurling [one of the ten investigating detectives] could recall Rita’s chilling response when they questioned her about shoving a three-foot metal bar up Vigliarole’s rear: “He was a homo anyway.” How did she know? “When I stuck the bar up his rectum he wiggled.”)
The three girls took turns watching the man. It was Donna who delivered a ransom note and tape to a friend of Vigliarole’s, who was able to get a partial license plate number of the car she was driving. He notified the police, who traced the plate to a rental car facility. On April 6 the suspects were arrested, and detectives spent 36 hours straight interviewing the seven men and women. “We had to keep going back and forth and catch them in lies,” said Spurling. “It was a never-ending circle of lies.”
Spurling himself interviewed Donna: “I couldn’t believe this girl who was so intelligent and nice-looking could be so unemotional about what she was telling me she and her friends had done. They’d squeezed the victim’s testicles with a pair of pliers, beat him, burned him. Actually, I thought the judge’s sentence was lenient. Once a jailbird, always a jailbird.”
But there was another moment, on our second day together, when she slipped verbally, and said in an almost irritable way, “He [the victim] was going to die anyway, so . . .” and then she caught herself. I just looked at her. All her previous protestations that when arrested she’d had no idea Vigliarole was dead were clearly lies.
...[Hylton had said:] "When they told me the victim was dead I just broke down. I didn’t believe it. Look, I know I did something wrong, but I didn’t kill anybody and I didn’t want anybody killed. I wasn’t out for anything evil, maybe love, maybe acceptance.”
Hylton’s signed statement, and the recollections of Detective Spurling, tell a different story. “All the girls’s hairs were on the bedsheet they wrapped him in,” recalled Spurling, “so they were all on the bed with him, or maybe having sex with him.” Rita and Theresa recalled hearing Hylton reading the ransom statement, while Vigliarole’s captors held a knife to his throat and tried to force him to repeat it after them into a tape recorder. She was indeed sighted as the deliverer of the ransom note and tape.Let's not mince words. The Women's March wasn't about women. Nor was it about gays or blacks or immigrants or any other "minority" group. It was, if you are a Christian, about Satan making a frontal attack on human life, while at the same time attempting to taint as many souls as possible by getting them to go along with it. You can just see him listening to the speakers and laughing.
Or if you are not a Christian, it was about the propensity of human beings to cloak irrationality, violence and raw hatred in the language of "rights."
The whole thing dripped evil. Accept it or not. Renounce it or not. Accept part of it (or accept its "ideal") and cover your eyes for the rest. Or not.
But for your sake, I would choose carefully.
Here is Donna Hylton's speech. It comes between 2:26:00 and 2:31:00.
