Conservatives decry rape, regardless of the circumstances, as a horrible crime, and the perpetrators as animals.
Liberals call the victims “hookers” and defend the perps:
Author Gore Vidal says he refuses to feel any sympathy for Roman Polanski’s rape victim, whom he dubs a “hooker.”
In an interview with The Atlantic, the controversial 83-year-old author of such books as “Myra Breckinridge” and “1876” says of the director’s sex scandal, “I really don’t give a [expletive]. Look am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s being taken advantage of?”
The young woman to whom he is referring is Samantha Geimer, who was a 13-year-old aspiring model in 1977 when she was drugged and raped by Polanski.
Vidal went on to say that the media pushed an inaccurate image of Geimer, painting her as an innocent victim as opposed to what he believes to be her true identity.
Liberals attacked Clinton’s accusers in a similar fashion, stopping just short of calling them hookers. Instead, they attacked their looks; one was called “a woman with big hair from the trailer park,” while another was maligned for the size of her nose. None of the libs who defended Clinton by attacking the victims could bring a shred of real evidence to prove Clinton was innocent. The Bar responded the way Congress refused to: they disbarred the pathetic disgrace for a human being.
Playboy writers published a disgusting list recently–the top ten women they’d love to “hate rape.” Every single one of them were conservatives, among them Michelle Malkin, Mary Katherine Ham and FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly (whom I’d have a total crush on if she weren’t straight!).
Polanski fled the US in 1978 after pleading guilty to drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. He’s currently in custody in Switzerland awaiting extradition. Now we’ve got Gore Vidal defending him, blaming the conviction on anti-semitism and calling the victim a hooker to absolve his friend of his sins.
I hate to tell you this, folks, but rape is rape. Even if your victim is perceived to be a prostitute (or actually is one), it’s still rape. The instant that person says NO and you don’t obey, guess what? It’s rape. No questions asked. And a 13-year-old girl? Does anybody really have any delusions that she could have consented to sex with anyone, much less a grown man who had fed her drugs?
Mr. Vidal, you’re a sick man, a sad caricature of all that’s wrong with our society. If one of my friends had done something like this I would denounce him and dump him without hesitation. You should do the same.
