GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison condemns Todd Akin’s rape remarks; lefties call her a hypocrite

The U.S. senator from Texas is the latest GOPer to condemn Todd Akin’s stunningly ignorant comments on rape.

Naturally, there were plenty of liberals who were unable to process the fact that Akin is facing increasing pressure from Republicans to withdraw from the Missouri senate race. After all, the Republican party is but a hive for misogynists, right?

Ah yes, of course. Because as Democrat math empirically demonstrates, Todd Akin is Paul Ryan, and Paul Ryan is Todd Akin.

But back to Hutchison’s role as a gender-traitor:

Let’s see: he points out Hutchison and the GOP’s supposed hatefulness and divisiveness by calling Hutchison a “hag.” Are we the only ones who see the irony here?

Enough. When will the Left quit the incessant bashing of conservative women — and conservatives as a group — under the guise of defending women against male oppression? Liberals are constantly lumping all women together, encouraging them to engage in groupthink and castigating those who dare stray from the set path. That is intellectual oppression, and it is the Left that bears the heavy burden of guilt.

    What Akin said was plain stupid, but I love the lefts righteous indignation as somewhere in the United States another unborn baby is added to to the dumpster behind planned parenthood. “We abort babies because we care”

    Unlike the Democrats, the Republicans have the courage to stand up to what is right. The Democrats have their FAINTING ROOMS.

    “Idaho state Sen. Chuck Winder (R) recently justified his opposition to abortion in cases of rape by questioning whether women really know what rape is.”

    Remember Sarah Palin starting to charge rape victims for medical exams, evidence-gathering tests and rape kits after she became the Governor of Alaska?
    Remember Fox News so-called pundit Liz Trotta saying female veterans should expect to be raped after a newly released Pentagon report showed an alarming increase in violent sex crimes in the military?
    Republicans not only want to reduce women’s access to abortion care, they’re actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven’t yet. Shocker.
    Ryan talks about “honest rape” and Akins talks about “legitimate rape”. Together they wrote bills redefining rape to only include “forcible rape” (and no little bruises or scrapes, ya gotta be half dead first). Under their rules, there is no such thing as date rape or marital rape or coerced rape or drug induced rape. No…those aren’t honest or legitimate rapes. This is not a slip of the tongue or misspeaking, this is GOP policy!!

    Karl Rove wouldn’t condemn Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-MO) “legitimate rape” comments during an appearance on Fox News on Monday, saying only that the GOP nominee challenging Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in November will have some “real explaining to do” to voters.

    Let’s not forget the GOP proposal for state sanctioned rape with a transvaginal probe, stating “they already made the decision to be vaginally probed when they got pregnant.”

    Sharon Angle said a girl who was raped by her father and became pregnant should “make lemonade out of lemons.”
    When Democrats tried to get rape protection for female employees of private contractors in iraq, 30 Republicans voted it down. It was said these rapes were “work related and should be handled by private arbitration.”
    At one point in the mid-90s, Akin, as noted in Talking Points Memo, voted for a bill that would criminalize marital rape, but not before he made it clear that he was concerned that women were going to lie and say their husbands had raped them to gain advantage in divorce settlements. He also voted *against* a bill establishing sex offender databases.

    Florida Republican blames 11-year-old for being raped
    Republican Florida State Rep. Kathleen Passidomo apparently believes that the state’s new school dress code will keep children safe from being raped:
    “There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gang-raped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute,” she said. “And her parents let her attend school like that. And I think it’s incumbent upon us to create some areas where students can be safe in school and show up in proper attire so what happened in Texas doesn’t happen to our students.” (so she deserved rape for dressing wrong?)

    Aug 19, 2012-Mike HucKabee points out the upside of being raped by recounting the accomplishments of rape babies. “You might get a good baby too. So what’s so bad about rape?” He uses the phrase “forcible rape” repeatedly as if all rape wasn’t forcible.

    The Family Research Council, leapt to Akin’s defense. The group’s political action committee complained today that Akin was “getting a very bad break here” and pledged to “support him fully and completely.” The American Family Association is another major sponsor. The group’s spokesperson, Bryan Fischer said that Akin was “absolutely right.” Continuing, he said that the trauma of a “real, genuine rape, a case of forcible rape” would make it impossible or difficult for a woman to conceive. So the 32000 cases of rape pregnancies weren’t “real genuine cases of rape” because of rape, which means, to them, the women really wanted to be rape and weren’t forced.
