They Were Asking For it

Sandhya Somashekhar is a pusher of Terrorism Culture.

By god, if doing anything that excuses something that might be rape is Rape Culture, then she is eyebrows deep in Terrorism Culture.

Pamela Geller, the woman behind the Texas cartoon contest attacked by two gunmen late Sunday, knew what she was doing when she staged the controversial event featuring irreverent depictions of the prophet Muhammad in Garland, Tex.

 

Yeah, that girl knew what she was doing when she went back to that guy’s apartment.

The Dallas suburb had hosted a pro-Muslim conference in January, about the time Islamist terrorists killed a dozen journalists with the satirical French publication Charlie Hebdo. Geller, a blogger and fierce critic of what she calls the “Islamization” of America, wanted to make a statement.

 

When she put on that lipstick and that short dress, she wanted to make a statement.

If the contest was intended as bait, it worked. Police say two men drove 1,000 miles from Phoenix, shot at a police car outside the event and were quickly killed by one of the hired guards. The shooting has been condemned by Muslim leaders, and Geller, too, has come under fire for staging an event many viewed as purposely provocative.

If that sexy look was intended as bait, it worked.  The rape has been condemned by community leaders, and the girl, too, has come under fire for behaving in a way that many viewed as purposefully provocative.

Still, “I think decent people would say: ‘Why would you need to do that?’?” Beirich said.

Why would you wear that dress if you didn’t want it?

Somashekhar is disgusting.  She might as well have written an article about how a woman who got raped at a Slutwalk was “bait”.

 

 

Ted Cruz: The Distinguished Wacko Bird from Texas

So QC ran a thing on Ted Cruz, and the worst that they could come up with via was this:

As a law student at Harvard, he refused to study with anyone who hadn’t been an undergrad at Harvard, Princeton, or Yale. Says Damon Watson, one of Cruz’s law-school roommates: “He said he didn’t want anybody from minor Ivies like Penn or Brown.”

Just keep in mind, this is apparently the same Damon Watson who was disbarred in California for misconduct surrounding his multiple DUIs.

Words Matter

To be clear:

Attempts to limit abortions to just the first five months of pregnancy (you know, the halfway point) and only in clean, safe clinics: War on Women

However,

Dropping bombs on Syria, killing people, with “low collateral damage” (which I’m sure is comforting when it’s your family that’s the “collateral damage”)?  Not a war.

Missing the Big Picture

Advocates worry that continued resistance by some states could hinder efforts to coax many of the nation’s 50 million uninsured to sign up for coverage.

“There is a very palpable concern .?.?. that anti-Obamacare state government people will find ways to gum up the works,” said Leonardo Cuello, director of health reform for the National Health Law Program. Political foes of the health-care law are “constantly putting up barriers to progress being made,” he added.

Why, it’s almost like the system was designed to have a local and a national part, where the national part wouldn’t have the ability to force an unpopular and unwanted law down the throats of the locals.

I’ll tell you what, if anyone ever did figure out how to make some sort of federal type government where the overall part had limited powers and only did things that had to be done at the national level, and left stuff like healthcare regulation to the local level, I bet that country would take off like a rocket and become a superpower.

Double Standards

This story prompted a question in my mind:

If the left doesn’t think that therapy works for someone who has sexual urges towards his own sex, then why do they think that child molesters can ever be rehabilitated?

Republicans aren’t “Real Texans”

Wendy Davis is a filthy demagogue and shows it in her own words.

Simply put, this bill would take away access to the most fundamental form of health care women need.

The most fundamental form of health care for women isn’t nutrition.  It isn’t antibiotics.  It isn’t cancer treatment.  It’s not wellness checkups.

It’s abortions. Abortions after 20 weeks on a whim.

Make sure you get that right.  It may be all those “staying alive” things for men, but for women, it’s different.  It’s sixth months abortions.

Real Texans don’t want any woman to die of cancer because she can’t get decent health care or medical advice.

Republicans, on the other hand, love cancer.  Republicans are the cancer lobby.  Republicans sit at home at night and dream of a world where all women have all the cancers all the time.

If Republicans are pro-cancer because of this, that makes her pro-late term abortion.

Real Texans don’t want any woman to lose control of her life because she can’t get birth control.

Republicans want to ban birth control.  That’s the only way her line here makes any sense.  As near as I can tell, birth control is still on the shelves, both before and after the bill.

Texas Republican political leaders take perverse pride in how deeply they have cut our state’s education budget.

Texas Democrat leaders take perverse pride, on the other hand, in how deeply terrible and harmfully our unionized teachers have failed our schoolchildren.

Real Texans want their kids to have the best education possible, not the one politicians looking to brag about budget cuts have left us with.

Absolutely.  In fact, the idea behind vouchers and school choice is that no one wants the best education for your kids more than you.  Wendy Davis apparently thinks she wants the best education for your own kids more than you do.

I have a question for Perry and the state’s powerful politicians who have ignored real Texans for so long:

Can you hear us now? And, more important, are you listening?

We sure are.  And we’re taking notes.  You’ll be eating your words when you have to run for reelection.

Judge rips Obama’s right-wing Plan B stance

So this is what this judge thinks about 15 being the minimum age for Plan B:

The government didn’t argue the merits of requiring a photo ID or that the drug only be sold in locations with an on-site pharmacy, but Korman made clear why he found that to be an inadequate compromise: “You’re using these 11- and 12-year-olds to place an undue burden on women’s ability to access emergency contraception. If it’s an impediment to voting, it’s an impediment to get the drug.”

I agree with the judge.

I’m not a fan of Plan B.  I think that abortion is a moral wrong.  I’m especially not a fan of children experiencing statutory rape, becoming impregnated by their rapist, and then covering up the crime with a drug (potentially bought for them by their rapist.)

But, I’ll abide it.  That is what being in a free republic is about.  People are allowed to do things you don’t like, because that is what liberty costs.

I want equality, though.  If showing ID to get this drug is an impediment to the “right” to abortifactants, then showing ID is an impediment to your enumerated right to keep and bear arms.  Never mind background checks and form 4473s, this judge has just said that showing ID is an impediment to exercising a right.

So let’s do it.  No ID for guns.  No ID to exercise your right to travel by plane.  No ID to enter a federal courtroom.  If showing ID is an impediment to exercising a civil right, I welcome that development with open arms.
