Twitter Conservatives Having a Grand Time Making Rape Jokes

What right wing misogyny?

Today we find the conservative movement on Twitter happily making thousands and thousands of puerile, disgusting jokes about rape, in the #LiberalTips2AvoidRape hashtag.

You’re supposed to think it’s clever commentary on liberal hypocrisy, because those damned liberals are trying to take away the guns women need to kill their rapists. Therefore, the best way to comment on this is with a nauseating deluge of ugly, woman-hating tweets.

I won’t bother copying any of this vile stuff; click the link above if you want to see the dark heart of the conservative movement in all its repulsive glory.

Pushing the right wingers to let their hair down and let the hatred flow: the appropriately titled twitchy.com, because that’s the site’s entire purpose: Lefties Freak Over LiberalTips2AvoidRape Hashtag, Silent on Dems Who Want Women Defenseless | Twitchy.

These huge conservative derp-fests, where thousands of them all start trying to outdo each other for the most thuggish hateful “humor” they can dream up in their fevered brains, have absolutely no parallel in liberal circles.

There’s something deeply, deeply wrong with a community of people that encourages and enables this kind of nastiness. And they do it while professing to be hyper-religious and super-moral, which makes it even worse.

And it’s insultingly stupid to run away from legitimate questions about conservative and Republican policy by saying ZOMG THE DEMS WANT TO TAKE GUNS. Coming from the party that had a good chunk of its caucus vote against the Violence Against Women Act, has candidates and officials that repeatedly make light of rape, and caters to people like Rush Limbaugh. Is it any wonder why women reject the Republican brand name? Shit it makes me embarrassed as a guy to see that more men prefer the Republicans to the Democrats.

RWNJ’s think an AR-15 is the magic answer to rape prevention. So how will they prevent a rapist-boyfriend from giving a roofie to his AR-15-toting rape victim and then offering to watch her AR-15 for her while she takes a little nap?

Trust Bryan Fischer and Glenn Beck to completely misread the information:

The memo they cite clearly states they reason they don’t work is because the way they are currently implemented doesn’t do enough to have an impact, or are too easily circumvented by other loopholes in the law, not because they don’t work.

re: #24 HappyWarrior

I noted this down below but it’s worth posting again.

Congress has repeatedly indicated that Barack Obama is the President of the United States - in addressing him before the SOTU for instance, as well as in its daily actions (floor debates, votes, enacting legislation). The Supreme Court has likewise indicated him as president.

It’s a nonstarter. He’s President. End.Of.Story.

Taitz and the rest of the birthers would have you believe that everyone is in on the conspiracy, from Congress on down. It’s incomprehensible and it’s nonsense all the way down. But it’s that cold fury that keeps them warm at night.

NASA restores communication with International Space Station

NASA restored communication with the International Space Station on Tuesday after connections went dark following a routine computer software update.

Before the fix, the space agency said the craft was able to communicate only every 90 minutes when it passed over ground stations in Russia.

“This is the same way they used to do it in the 1960s, with Gemini and Apollo,” NASA spokesman Josh Byerly said.

The station, which is carrying two American astronauts, three Russian cosmonauts and a Canadian astronaut, did not appear to be in danger.

There is an even bigger gap between married women, who actually favored Romney, and unmarried women. Here are the voting demographics from the exit polling, which I have found fascinating. For example, Romney won white evangelicals big, but the President got 60% of the vote of everyone who isn’t a white evangelical. The GOP has transformed from a secular political party to become the political arm of white fundamentalists.

Entirely understandable. Speaking for myself, I want to read the article about the surgeon who’s treated over 30,000 rape victims in the DRC, but can’t bring myself to because of the “this story contains disturbing information” disclaimer (I’m already familiar with some of the things that have happened in the Congo, and merely thinking about it is enough to make me physically ill)

At 102 Years Old, Birthday Girl Finally Stops Smoking

Birthday girl Clara Cowell has proved that it’s never too late to change bad habits. At 102 years old, she finally quit smoking after picking up the habit in 1931. She did not even quit smoking because of her health - she finally stopped the habit because her family was worried that falling ash would set her house on fire.

According to the Daily Mail, Ms. Cowell has smoked two to three cigarettes a day since picking up the habit - amounting to about 60,000 cigarettes in her lifetime. But the centenarian finally quit at the urges of her family, who worried about the safety of her habit.

Ms. Cowell lives independently. Her daughters say that the secret to her success may be rooted in hard work and poverty, but also something more surprising: her cigarettes and her daily habit of a cup of tea with whiskey.

It’s never too late :)

Missouri Bill Makes It A Felony For Lawmakers To Propose Gun Safety Legislation

Yesterday, Missouri state Rep. Mike Leara (R) proposed legislation making it a felony for lawmakers to so much as propose many bills regulating guns. Leara’s bill provides that “[a]ny member of the general assembly who proposes a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bear arms, as set forth under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, shall be guilty of a class D felony.”

For example, Romney won white evangelicals big, but the President got 60% of the vote of everyone who isn’t a white evangelical. The GOP has transformed from a secular political party to become the political arm of white fundamentalists.

The numbers I found disappointing/interesting - and I cannot find those exit polls so can’t provide “proof” - was in the 18-24 range. In general they favored Obama. Whites of that age, however slightly favored Romney. If broken out by region, whites of the rural/south states favored Romney and the others Obama. If by gender, white males for Romney and females for Obama. Bottom line, the southern white male bias isn’t going to go away with time.

re: #66 kirkspencer

The numbers I found disappointing/interesting - and I cannot find those exit polls so can’t provide “proof” - was in the 18-24 range. In general they favored Obama. Whites of that age, however slightly favored Romney. If broken out by region, whites of the rural/south states favored Romney and the others Obama. If by gender, white males for Romney and females for Obama. Bottom line, the southern white male bias isn’t going to go away with time.

Obama got 60% of the 18-24 y.o. vote, so I wouldn’t worry too much about a slight pro-GOP bias among young whites, which is a shrinking demographic anyway.

The party got sold. The budget/military conservatives a long time ago made themselves comfortable with the social conservatives, and have been voting with them steadily. I don’t quite know how it happened that way— it didn’t even start with Reagan, though he solidified it— but it’s been the deal for a long time. To vote Republican has meant voting for social conservativism for quite awhile.

Its simple, rich people needed foot soldiers and voters to come from somewhere, because they are so few in number.

We’d probably see the same hatred directed at Clinton that we see at Obama if Clinton had been president in this day of mass communication.Any president really though I do think there is a lot of unique hatred directed at Obama.

No they don’t cause it at all. They facilitate it huge. Limbaugh & Faux gives them a hardon but not a way to speak out to so may so easily. Before we saw this on the BBS boards. But social network facilitates every kind of network. The only reason I have twitter is to tweet or r/t stuff from here. As any of my few followers have surely noticed.

I was about to say that it’s true that it didn’t start with Reagan, it started ages before that with Goldwater, Nixon, and the “Southern Strategy.” Goldwater hitched the party’s views to the South with “states rights,” Nixon got the bandwagon rolling faster by playing to Southern fears in the wake of the Civil Rights movement, and then Reagan solidified the GOP as socially conservative by embracing the “Moral Majority.”

Honestly, I am not sure what the best solution for the sane conservatives left. I do agree that conservative shouldn’t be a derogatory work and frankly on its surface, it’s not one to me even though I’d rather be a liberal than a conservative any day of the week. Anyhow, conservatism I think needs more intellectuals and less demagogues in the vain of Rick Santorum who actually attacked the president for suggesting that every American child should have some form of higher education. Those are the kind of issues that liberal and conservative policymakers should be united on. I don’t expect religious conservatives to embrace gay marriage overnight but I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect them to realize that gay and lesbian Americans aren’t twisted perverts trying to attack their families and they certainly aren’t pedophiles. Just like I don’t expect them to like abortion but it would be nice if women who choose to get abortion and or use birth control weren’t viewed as some kind of whore either.

Bryan Fischer dedicates the first segment of every program to a discussion of a reading from the Bible, followed by a prayer based on that reading. In addition to his own family and friends and co-workers, Fischer regularly includes President Obama among those for whom he is praying and yesterday explained that he does so because Jesus commanded Christians to pray for their enemies and those that persecute them.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Fischer declared, “we should be under no illusions here; President Obama is not our friend, President Obama is our enemy”:

Southern Republicans aren’t going to lead the change because they have more to fear from being primaried by the Tea Party. The change is more likely to come from northern Republicans like Christie.

Part of the issue, in my observation (as a damned yankee who moved to GA almost 30 yrs ago) is that the culture here is a bit self contained. So what you hear at home is then reinforced in church, sometimes at school, in many team sport related activities, clubs etc. In other words the politics and issues of race, social issues and other things are handed down as a legacy and then reinforced all over the place socially. Especially in the mostly white suburbs.

Southern Republicans aren’t going to lead the change because they have more to fear from being primaried by the Tea Party. The change is more likely to come from northern Republicans like Christie. I’m looking forward to the 2016 presidential campaign to see if Christie or someone like him is willing to take on the troglodytes rather than sucking up to them like Romney did.

Christie has effectively disqualified himself from ever winning a GOP presidential primary. They are going to find themselves a party that contines to dominate state and local legislatures but cannot nominate a viable presidential candidate.

re: #149 Vicious Babushka

Baker and GHWB had sought to impose a peace deal on Israel at the Madrid Conference. It was a huge failure. Clinton benefited from the Oslo process being conducted in backchannels and in closed door until a deal was done, but it wasn’t the peace deal everyone envisioned because the Arafat couldn’t make the tough decision to actually agree to a 2-state solution. GWB followed that with a few attempts at playing middleman in a 2-state solution but he and Obama haven’t pursued the public setting for setting a peace deal. Rather than try to force the grand bargain, GWB and Obama have gone with the toned down approach without forcing Israel to the bargaining table with Palestinians who still can’t figure out whether they are united or not (and where Hamas still seeks Israel’s destruction in pronouncements).

It’s meant that the status quo has been largely unchanged since 2005/2006 (when Hamas took over Gaza).

Crossroads ad mocks Ashley Judd as ‘radical Hollywood liberal’

“With all the Daily Courier’s buzz about Ashley Judd’s prospects as a candidate for United States Senate, some have mused that the Courier Journal would actually start a “Super PAC” to support her. Given how competitive the Super PAC space is, American Crossroads today preempted that effort by launching our very own Ashley Judd for Senate advertisement,” American Crossroads Communications Director Jonathan Collegio wrote in a press release.

The commercial, which is backed by $10,000 in digital advertising, will run for two weeks in Kentucky, according to the group.

Well to be fair, the Minutemen were the “elite” of the colonial militias, compromising only a quarter of all those who were called up. His low opinion, as with a lot of his contemporaries, had more to do with the general failure of the militia.

It’s not surprise that the wingnuts like to invoke Lexington and Concord whenever they gush about the “American patriot,” because those were the only unabashed successes of the militia during the war.

Alabama lawmaker: Fetus is ‘the largest organ in a body’

In a recent interview, state Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin explained why she was sponsoring House Bill 57 — The Women’s Health and Safety Act — which would “require clinics to follow ambulatory clinic building codes and make it a felony — punishable by up to 10 years in prison — for a nurse, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant to dispense abortion-inducing medications,” according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

“When a physician removes a child from a woman, that is the largest organ in a body,” the lawmaker declared. “That’s a big thing. That’s a big surgery. You don’t have any other organs in your body that are bigger than that.”

In fact, the largest internal organ in the body is the liver, weighing 3.5 pound on average. The body’s largest external organ is the skin. A fetus weighs about 0.6 pounds at 20 weeks.

“My liver, heart, and skin are all very excited that we are now giving organs personhood rights, although the latter is slightly upset about losing out on its ‘largest organ in the human body’ rep,” Jezebel’s Katie J.M. Baker wrote on Monday.

But it might mean that a CEO will have to fly business class instead of in a private jet!

(Actually no, they will never give up their private jets and million dollar bonuses, they will just raise prices and lay people off)

All them rich asses can be stuck taking a bus for all I care. lol

Google stock price breaks $800 for the first time

how am i supposed to make money investing in a stock that costs $800 a share?

Invest in a TARDIS and go back to the day before Google went public.

The same strategy works for Apple, too.

re: #217 Targetpractice

The ones making the biggest noise are the ones who right now are making at or just above the proposed new minimum wage, because they know their bosses will not honor earned pay raises if the minimum goes up. They’ll be back at the bottom of the ladder, faced with the reality that their boss is looking to get the most out of them for the least amount of money.

I suspect that the complainers are people making way more than the minimum or are retired on Social Security and Medicare and are just repeating whatever Faux News is saying. Much like with Obamacare.

Not an option for many

When I lived in just outside of Boston and worked in the city, I was a bus/ train rider every day

Here in the burbs of Atlanta, I would have to drive 3/4 of the way into work just to get to someplace where I could take a bus, transfer to a train, transfer to another bus to get me within 3/4 of a mile of work

I believe that would put you firmly in the “lazy taker who whines because he doesn’t get special entitlements” category. Bootstraps! Man up! //

re: #206 Bulworth

The perennial wingnut zero-sum game fear: someone else is getting or might get something and that will automatically reduce the something I get. And these are the supposedly moral and Christian people.

Using the same logic, a high paying executive is reducing what what they’re entitled to, right? Or do “other” people spend their money differently?

Every time I read about a legislator saying something like that, I hate admitting it but it makes me thinking about that old Churchill quote about Democracy being the least effective form of government save the rest of them. I mean damn I love the ability to democratically elect our officials but man we elect some real nuts to represent us. Part of the process.

re: #219 sattv4u2

Yep. City and road planning isn’t high on the priority list down here,lol. They build all kinds of stuff in an area and then it occurs to someone that perhaps the roads need updating and widening. Public transportation actually got fought hard where I am because people were askeered that too many brown people might use it to “invade” the area and that crime would increase. So, if you want to use the bus you have to drive over near the mall area to the Park and Ride lot, get on the county bus line, transfer to MARTA going into Atlanta and then if need be catch a train. I’ve done that before, it takes a couple hours- one way.

I’d love to see high speed rail in the metro area but people seem almost addicted to their cars here-while bitching about traffic and gas prices. If you live in Atlanta/Fulton county the public transportation is fine(not great, but it works),outside that area, it’s impossible to use.

Seriously, I love the mental disconnect that goes into bitching that we need to private Social Security because it’s “on the verge of insolvency” and all these armchair economists talking about how more people are taking out than paying in…

Yet if you suggest that we make cuts to current SS seniors as part of “entitlement reform,” they scream that the people taking out “earned” that money and they deserve every penny of what they receive. Had a wingnut the other day even declare that folks collecting SS are entitled to it because of “loss of opportunity,” as in “they lost the opportunity to invest that money!”

Out where I am they’re doing that all the time, and I’m not just talking about the highways. They’ve also just finished repaving the top end of the Perimeter (done at nights and weekends,,,, my son got caught in it every weekend coming from/ going to school)

That’s crossing a line there. Rape is not something you should wish on anyone, even those with horrible politics.
