Todd Akin Tells World Net Daily the Media Makes Fun of Him Because They Want to Destroy America

RightWingWatch has been keeping track of Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin as he goes from one far right media outlet to the next, pushing a line of persecution and victimhood that would embarrass a spoiled five-year old. Akin is doubling down on his creepy misogynistic statements by claiming the evil left wing media is trying to destroy him because he’s a brave American hero.

This week, Akin also told the Christian Broadcasting Network that he’s being persecuted because he’s on the side of “good” in a spiritual war between good and evil.

After the whole thing blew up and it took maybe a week or two and it was just amazing. It wasn’t just national, it was international news, because people were saying I said something most of the time that I didn’t even say and assigning me motives that I didn’t have. What did I feel like? It’s going to be sort of an odd analogy but I’ll share it with you. I felt sort of peaceful, as though I was in a parachute. I sort of felt that on each side of me were these towering cumulus clouds. On the one side lightning and thunder of evil and the other side brilliant light of good and I sort of felt like I was literally on the front lines and that evil and good were going at each other all around me and I’m thinking, ‘how did I get here so fast? If you want a mental picture, sometimes you just have to sort of think of a bizarre picture but that’s what it felt like. I felt a sense of peace like I was protected but it seemed like there was this intense war between good and evil, which in a way didn’t surprise me because I always felt like I want to be on the side of selling good ideas.

Akin, by the way, was covered at LGF even before his twisted statements about “legitimate rape,” when he announced that he wanted to abolish school lunches and repeal the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

So he’s basically your all-around repellent whining right wing caveman with a raging persecution complex.
