One Big Difference Between Conservative and Liberal

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.

  1. I know – I love liberals and how they choose their victims.

    But ironically, I wonder if they would have cared if Paula Jones paid for her own rape kit in Alaska – as they stretch the truth about Sarah Palin.

  2. But remember, Steve, she banned books (she must’ve used a psychic to ban the list attributed yo her) and couldn’t tell you what magazines she used to gather news (but Obama couldn’t be pressed to answer that question either).

    The hypocrisy on this kind of thing is breathtaking. They’ll swear up and down that they’re true feminists, but the very second a victim crops up accusing one of their heroes, they check their beliefs at the door. I also seem to recall a certain Republican (in name only) Congressman standing accused for years of horrid philandering, including forcing himself on several Congressional aides, and getting a pass for being pro-abortion–then as soon as Clinton was elected, this guy was dumped like a bag of baby vomit and the same people who previously sang his praises wanted to drag out every accusation ever made against him.

    Only when it’s convenient, folks. ONLY when it’s convenient.

  3. “Conservatives decry rape, regardless of the circumstances, as a horrible crime, and the perpetrators as animals.”

    …who seem to think that if a woman is raped by a contractor, she shouldn’t have her day in court, and that it should remain behind closed doors in arbitration. Isn’t that strange? All 30 of them are republicans, and they voted against this amendment to HR 3326:

    http://senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=1&vote=00308

    “None of the libs who defended Clinton by attacking the victims could bring a shred of real evidence to prove Clinton was innocent.”

    The last time I checked, the prosecutor is the one with the burden of proof, and if memory serves me correctly, not one of the numerous accusations of sexual impropriety ever stuck. So much for that proof thing…

    And why are you even mentioning Clinton? He never raped anyone, and your bringing his name up is a backhanded way of accusing him of it.

  4. “And why are you even mentioning Clinton? He never raped anyone”

    Credibly accused by Juanita Broderick.

    No conviction, but then again, it was in the same timeframe OJ was acquitted, too.

  5. Robert how do you translate a vote of “nay” from:

    “To prohibit the use of funds for any Federal contract with Halliburton Company, KBR, Inc., any of their subsidiaries or affiliates, or any other contracting party if such contractor or a subcontractor at any tier under such contract requires that employees or independent contractors sign mandatory arbitration clauses regarding certain claims.”

    to:

    “who seem to think that if a woman is raped by a contractor, she shouldn’t have her day in court, and that it should remain behind closed doors in arbitration.”

    Arbitrators are used in civil matters or non-criminal disputes within a workforce usually having to do with labor violations, union disputes, etc.

    Rape is a criminal activity and I don’t give a damn where it happens (any company, building, street, or residence), women have their laws within those jurisdictions (where the rape took place) to prosecute. Arbitrators don’t hear rape cases.

  6. Well if you’re going to generalize based on one person I could just bring up what Bill O’reilly said regarding a similar rape victim and how it was her fault.

    Btw, who the hell thinks of Gore Vidal when they think of liberals? I don’t even know who that guys is! lol

  7. Well, if you were truly interested in having a discussion, perhaps you would have mentioned it and described to us the similarities instead of saying “nanny nanny boo boo, stick your head in doo doo!”

    Silly Tom.

  8. Oh, Bill O’Reilly doesn’t characterize himself as a conservative….moreover; he supported amnesty for illegals.

    So, we get amnesty from the O’Reilly “factor” in this instance since the title clearly says “conservative.”

  9. Yeah, I thought that was funny, too. Liberals can’t stand O’Reilly, so they call him a neocon, when in fact he’s right up there with Bernie Goldberg–he’s personally liberal. He’s just more balanced than the rest of the opinion anchors on the air.

  10. Steve, my translation of conservatives defending rape stems from the very reason that Senator Franken put forth this amendment. In 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones was gang-raped by her co-workers while she was working for Halliburton/KBR in Baghdad. She was detained in a shipping container for at least 24 hours without food, water, or a bed, and “warned her that if she left Iraq for medical treatment, she’d be out of a job.”

    Jones was prevented from bringing charges in court against KBR because her employment contract stipulated that sexual assault allegations would only be heard in private arbitration. The Franken amendment, which passed, allows victims of rape in these very specific instances, to have their day in court. How anyone with a conscience could vote against that is beyond me. Suspiciously missing from that list are the names of ten republicans, including all the female ones…

  11. You don’t know your facts, Robert. The legislation passed only dealt with LAWSUITS. All it talked about was an employee suing KBR/Haliburton.

    Not one damn thing in that piece of legislation said that a rape victim had to go through mandatory arbitration. The crime was still covered by US law, and that fact was brought out in court by at least two judges. Her case had not been prosecuted because the rape kit, which the Department of Justice had to force KBR to cough up, was mysteriously missing key photographs and notes that would have made the case prosecutable.

    KBR should absolutely be held responsible, and THAT was what the Franken amendment was meant to allow. Try again.

  12. “You don’t know your facts, Robert. The legislation passed only dealt with LAWSUITS. All it talked about was an employee suing KBR/Haliburton.”

    And how is that at all different from my explanation. You just wanted to tell me I don’t know facts, didn’t you? Why else would you repeat my own argument?

    “Not one damn thing in that piece of legislation said that a rape victim had to go through mandatory arbitration.”

    That was the entire point of the legislation, so that it did NOT have to go through arbitration.

    “KBR should absolutely be held responsible, and THAT was what the Franken amendment was meant to allow. Try again.”

    I already know that. Again, that was my point. What exactly are you arguing?

  13. “That was the entire point of the legislation, so that it did NOT have to go through arbitration.”

    It never would, Robert. Arbitrators do not hear the facts and render decisions on criminal activity. But because she was told in Iraq she could lose her job (and I haven’t heard all the details of this) does not mean the investigation was held up in arbitration. In fact, without hearing the details I can guarantee that it was not. If so, the alleged arbitrators would have been sacked. That’s not their dealing – not even sexual harrassment cases go before arbitration.

  14. The point, Robert, is that the legislation you’re pointing out doesn’t apply to criminal activity. It only applies to employees who wish to bring a grievance against their employer in open court. Not one of those who voted for the legislation you named were doing so to apply the legislation to criminal acts, such as rape. And they could not have forseen the Jamie Leigh Jones incident.

    What happened to her was awful and KBR should absolutely be held accountable for defending her attackers. But you cannot claim that Republicans passed legislation that allowed the rape to occur without criminal charges, because it is simply untrue.
