Randi Rhodes (@randiradio) July 30, 2012
Progressive radio host Randi Rhodes is a little behind the times. Evidently, she just caught wind of The Washington Post hit piece that “exposed” Mitt Romney as an unrepentant anti-gay bully who — gasp! — cut a prep school classmate’s shaggy hair. Never mind that the Post’s slimy bit of hackery was debunked back in May – Rhodes is on it!
But dredging up that failed left-wing smear job wasn’t quite enough for the perpetually unhinged hate talker. In typical Rhodes style, she decided to ratchet up the rhetoric with the phrase “forcibly gang-barber” — an obvious allusion to gang rape.
So, apparently in Rhodesville, it’s okay to violently cut out conservative women’s ovaries as she called for in March:
You know, these women, somebody really needs to go repossess their ovaries. Really, truly, they have no right to them. They are fabulous, little organs and they have absolutely no right to be estrogen-bearing beings. Okay? Just cut ‘em off, let ‘em go through the hot flashes, let ‘em just sit there and complain about hormone therapy, okay? Just take the ovaries and get it over with. Because they don’t deserve to have estrogen. They really don’t. It’s a privilege.
But a teenage Mitt Romney performing an unauthorized haircut is a horrendous hate crime that can only be described by evoking gang rape imagery.
Oddly enough, we haven’t seen any calls for Rhodes’ head from the feminist Left for either the “gang-barber” tweet or her ovary-snatcher diatribe. Trivializing the brutalization of women is wrong except when it’s used as an oh-so-noble bludgeon to bash conservatives because … shaddup! War on wimmenz and Rush LIMBAAAAUGH!
