Default Republicans For Rape

This is a website that shows all the people who voted against Al Franken's bill to allow women to press charges for rape against companies that contract with the government.

Well, the feminist sluts deserve it. They get what they deserve, taking jobs from men when they should be home, barefoot and pregnant.

Jon Stewart did a segment on this. He showed the republicans speaking as to why it should not be passed-absolutely mind boggling the reasons they gave.

Here is the link to video:

OMFG!!!! Watching that video, where Jon Stewart compares the very same senators who are for government-sanctioned gang-rape speaking out against pretend prostitution through ACORN makes me sick. Awful. Awful. Those white southern men Republicans should all be gang raped.

That is the part that made me wonder what the heck is wrong with our country too. And why does it take Jon Stewart to point these things out? And I am not dissing Jon Stewart at ALL!!! It just boggles my mind why the 'regular' news outlets are not all over this type of thing. I am starting to watch Jon Stewart nightly to see what is really going on in this country.

Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann have both covered it, but it didn't seem to have the same resonance with me til I saw Jon Stewart cover it.

I haven't heard very much about this either, so I'm going to have to check out the Jon Stewart clip. From what little bit I have heard about it, it's absolutely mind-boggling and unbelievable that anyone would vote against the bill.

I don't think the website "republicansforrape" is very fair, considering I hardly think ALL Republicans feel the same way as the congressmen and women, or are "for rape."

That's not what the website is implying. The website is saying THOSE Republicans certainly seem to be for rape. Not sure how else their dissent could be construed other than that.

Rachel Maddow had the woman who was raped on her show tonight. Here's the video of it...7 minutes, worth watching:

I'm not saying their dissent could be construed in another way. I'm just saying the phrase "Republicans for Rape" sounds a certain way. You can't tell me if that if someone had a website called "democratsforinfanticide.com" that you wouldn't find that to be very stereotypical of ALL Democrats, even if the website was then all about certain Dems who believed in it. Just like I'd have a problem with the phrase "libertariansforanarchy" or whatever.

Sure I can. If it's about specific people, it's about specific people, even if they are all a part of one larger group.

I'm ignorant on this issue, but if you contract with the government, you can rape women legally? Why?

Watch the Rachel Maddow video I posted above. She explains it in great detail.

Thus far, no criminal charges have been brought against her rapists. There are laws in place that limit the ability of the Iraqi government to take action against contractors in Iraq. I do believe criminal charges can be made if a crime is committed by or against a US national, but I don't know why this has yet to be pursued. It might have something to do with her KBR suddenly "misplacing" key contents of her rape kit. What would you expect from a company whose management locks a rape victim in a storage bin to cover up her rape?

Now, if your question is the greater one of WHY this happens—why do contractors feel the need to include this clause in their employment contracts to begin with, and why is the Department of Defense itself opposing this bill because it is too difficult to enforce—I have no idea. Apparently national security hinges on the inability of rape victims to bring their rapists to justice!

Wow. F*ck you too, Republican legislators.

Man, am I glad McCain lost. He's trying to do enough damage already.

That seems like an excuse to judge someone about anything.
