In last November’s election, two Republican Senate candidates who were favored to win their races ended up getting shellacked at the polls after each made an excruciatingly idiotic statement about rape. These blunders gave the Democrats and the lamestream media (but I repeat myself) exactly what they craved most — something that was not just embarrassing to the Republican party, but also a great distraction from the issues that were working against the Democrat party in general and Barack Obama in particular: the economy, unemployment, budget deficits, the Benghazi debacle, and corruption in the executive branch, among other things. The entire focus of the election shifted away from the flailing economy and Democrat incompetence to what those horrible misogynist Republicans supposedly think about rape.
Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock didn’t just destroy the Republicans’ chances of taking the Senate; they also helped to sink Mitt Romney and other Republican candidates who were perceived to share their views — a mostly false perception, but one that was endlessly reinforced by the lamestream media, which demonstrated its usual level of regard for the truth (i.e., none whatsoever).
How quickly things change. In the midst of the recent brouhaha over gun violence and government attempts to chip away at the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, it’s Democrats who have been making all the idiotic statements about rape. Listen to this example of unbridled stupidity from Democrat Joe Salazar, a Colorado state legislator — but be forewarned that this jackass makes Akin and Mourdock look like geniuses by comparison:
Luckily for Salazar, his party affiliation rendered him immune from the type of treatment that Akin and Mourdock received at the hands of the oh-so-fair-and-impartial media.
Then there’s the brilliant advice Joe Biden gave to American women:
How does someone without a brain to call his own get to be vice president of the U.S.? (Yes, that was a rhetorical question; I know how it happened.)
In the next clip, another Democrat strategist proposes an ingenious, surefire method for eliminating the problem: teach rapists not to rape! Why didn’t anyone think of that before?
That great bastion of liberalism the University of Colorado offers women the following advice on how to avoid being raped:
1. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.
2. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead! It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.
3. Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.
4. Don’t take time to look back; just get away.
5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.
6. Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.
7. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
8. Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!
9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.
10. Remember, every emergency situation is different. Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.
In other words, if you’re a female student at U of C, and if for some reason you would prefer not to be raped, forget about carrying a gun. Just make sure that when you venture out, especially at night, you always have a full bladder and a full stomach (you might practice gagging yourself to induce vomiting, if you aren’t already familiar with the technique), and always wear running shoes (or if running shoes aren’t you’re style, at least wear shoes that are easy to kick off). As for the “passive resistance” mentioned in #5, I have no idea what that is, and frankly, I’m afraid to ask. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s a euphemism for “just relax and try to enjoy it.”
If any Republican had come up with a list of suggestions that imbecilic, he would have been lambasted, excoriated, and crucified by the LSM — and rightly so. But since the list was compiled and disseminated by liberals, it didn’t happen. So what do you do when you have a job the American media won’t do? You hire a Mexican, of course. Here are some of Soopermexican’s “Liberal Tips 2 Avoid Rape”:
Yell “racist” at the rapist… that’s like the worst thing ever!
Ask @AmbassadorRice to perform “the Vagina Monologues” in front of your attacker.
Pray to Obama extra hard, and promise to have 3 abortions in his name.
Click your heels three times and invoke a safety zone.
Wait for global warming to cause a meteorite to hit your attacker.
Ask the attacker if you can borrow his Obamaphone to call 911.
Draw an anti-rape circle in the dirt where the rapist can’t get you.
Avoid Occupy protests, the Kennedy Compound, & being alone with Bill Clinton.
The folks at The Looking Spoon also compiled a list, “Democrat Tips for Avoiding Rape Without Needing Guns.” Here are a few:
Unconditional surrender, then it’s not technically “rape.”
Tell your attacker you forgot to take the pill for that day.
Get their name, then threaten to tag them as a rapist on Facebook.
Remind the attacker that they are in a “rape-free zone.”
Accuse them of being sexist for only targeting female victims.
Since Obamacare allows insurance for preexisting conditions, get a sex change.
To sum up the difference between the Democrats and Republicans: The party that wants to disarm women so as to make them easier prey for rapists — and also thinks that assigning women to combat is a really swell idea — is pro-women. The party that thinks women should be armed and able to defend themselves against attackers is anti-women. Uh-huh. Makes perfect sense.
