Fight like girls? Heck, yes. Freedomworks’ Kristina Ribali got the ball rolling.

Indeed. The truth is something that is actually empowering for everyone, not just women. Kristina went on to tell her story in a string of powerful tweets.

Brava, Kristina.

Not too long ago, Spartanburg, S.C., Sheriff Chuck Wright got in some trouble for saying similar things. See, while the Left was telling women raped at Occupy camps to hush up, Sheriff Wright tried to empower women by telling them to arm themselves. Sheriff Wright’s remarks came on the heels of a situation similar to Kristina’s. The attempted rapist was a career cretin and repeat offender. He had been convicted of more than 20 crimes going back decades, but kept getting out of jail; leaving him free to continue to terrorize people again and again. Sheriff Wright was fed up and tried to help women protect themselves: “I want you to get a concealed weapons permit. Don’t get Mace. Get a firearm.”

Talk about real empowerment!

“Feminists,” of course, were up in (non-gun-holding) arms over the Sheriff’s advice. Guns are bad! Since “feminists” only claim they are For The Women ™, but they are actually anything but, they didn’t get it. You see, arming women and giving them the tools to defend themselves puts women in a higher position. Instead of being concerned with a rapist’s “rights,” those who truly respect and care for women are more concerned with, you know, the women.

The Left, on the other hand, think that women should just suck it up and shut up. What’s a little assault or rape if it is for an anti-gun agenda? The real war on women is perpetrated by those who believe that women should not even have a way to fight back to prevent a violent assault. Because, guns are icky. Or something.

They’d rather have victims than empowered women.

Contrary to the beliefs of the willfully ignorant like Bette Midler, Ellen Barkin, Nanny Bloomberg and their fellow travelers, the world doesn’t consist of fairy dust and kitten whiskers. And it is just not possible for the police to protect absolutely everyone at all times, nor to stop every crime, no matter what. Citizens, including women, must be able to protect themselves. And conservative women on Twitter intend to do so.

Many more are now weighing in and some are using the #whywomenpack hashtag.

That’s empowerment, baby.

    10 out of 10 liberals will run to their gun toting neighbors house during the zombie apocalypse.

    • Teresita Grant

      Charlton Heston told the story of how, during the Rodney King riots, some of his oh-so-liberal Hollywood friends called him and asked if he would LEND them some of HIS guns. L my FAO.

  • Nikechic619

    Aren’t liberals fascinated by the fact that communities that own the most guns are the most safe?

    • weRbroke

      They are too busy trying to figure out how to jam their fingers deep in their ears to hear about it.

  • Botzilla

    Its no secret that the crown jewel of the progressive / liberal movement is the disarming of the American people.

    • Teresita Grant

      Spot on. EVERYTHING they do is aimed at disarming Americans. EVERYTHING. Including this latest blast of hate. There’s a name for those who feed off dead bodies for their own benefit…maggots.

  • Rick Stones

    Why is Kristine Ribali so narrow minded and bigoted against serial meth-using sexual predators? She needs to stop drinking the haterade. I demand to see 10 years of her tax returns immediately.

    • RadarRecon

      I gave you a ^ because that sounds like sarcasm. If it’s not, I take it back.

      • Rick Stones

        I tried to lace with as much sarcasm as possible so there wouldn’t be any doubt, but after I posted it I realized this really isn’t a topic that should be treated in that manner… I was trying to be funny, but I wish I could take it back.

        • Snap N McGarrett

          That’s not sarcasm, Rick. I’d call it absurdity used effectively to illustrate the absurdities of the hopelessly absurd. Well done.

        • K Alongi

          I did wonder slightly .. glad you added… 😉

        • Walter__Mitty

          The real problem is that your post is perfectly plausible.

        • WideRight

          Rick, I got the sarcasm. The problem is that we all know people who would say what you did and be VERY serious about it. The only thing you forgot was that you didn’t build this gun or ammo… And if you are a good shot, there must have been a great (firearms) teacher.

          P.C. must end. Say what you mean and mean what you say!!!

  • BrendaShort

    Wished more Ppl realized this especially women that they are their only line of defense at that critical moment..

  • Kristian Sorensen

    Interesting how the Liberal mind works. They do not want YOU to carry a gun and recommend that you just call 911… So why should we call 911? Because they have guns! In reality, the police only show up in time to draw the chalk outlines.

    The first responder to any crime is ALWAYS the victim.

  • $16575667

    When it all hits the fan someday, the un-armed liberals will be nothing but zombie food.

    Click click…BOOM.

    Way to fight like a Girl, Kristine! I think the lib idea of gun control can be best summed up by a picture easily found online. It’s the back of a woman, firing a handgun at a target. She’s wearing a white t-shirt that reads:

    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

  • tingle007

    the best argument of all time is Gonzales vs. Castle rock. everyone should know it.

    • kenashimame

      see also Warren vs. District of Columbia

  • BeeKaaay

    The second amendment always is about one thing, and one thing only: SELF DEFENSE.

    Leftwingwackos like to use violence (look at #OccupyNazis and #Anaheimriots) so they are quick to equate gun ownership with violence. This is because leftwingwackos hate the idea of WE THE PEOPLE being able to defend ourselves from THUGS.

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      But I’d fine tune 1 minor point:
      Say not “protection from thugs”, but “protection from them”

      They don’t want the off-chance that they might be shot while they’re hsving a nice recreational riot, you see….

    Progressives say: Use mace or pepper spray.

    I can tell you: you can train yourself to ignore mace. People who include in their diet large amouts of hot peppers won’t react to pepper spray! This is absolutely proven, tested by the U.S. Army and has been known since the late 1960s. My grandson, a wrestler in High School, had a “practical joker” spray mace in his eyes. The joker had found the mace in mommy’s car and according to his friends thought it would make a “good joke on that Mormon kid…”. The account comes from the bystanders (Joker’s friends) but includes my grandson’s account as necessary to explain his motivations, too.

    Asking him some questions about wrestling, “Joker” wanted my grandson to show him a few holds “because I don’t see how somebody can’t just slip out”.

    My grandson was a very trusting young man at 16 and took Joker at his word. Using a full-nelson very he loosely, my grandson showed that even a half-effort lock worked. When Joker agreed. As he was released, but before he was completely free, he wheeled around and sprayed the mace fully into my grandson’s face and eyes.

    Unfortunately, for Joker anyway, my grandson caught him in three steps and in anger broke the arm that held the mace.

    Most of the Joker’s friends didn’t realize what the Joker was going to do — they hadn’t known about the can of mace. To their credit, once they saw what was done they stood up for what was right and told the teachers & police the truth.

    But if a 16 year old — under conditions of surprise — wasn’t stopped, how could you have any confidence a psychotic who is committed to his crime would be?

    And all three: pepper spray, mace, and cs teargas are illegal to have — even for personal protection — in many cities. NYC, Chicago, Philadelphia, Wash.DC… pretty much the same places firearms are illegal. Imagine that!

    Also, the Marines train you to ignore CS Teargas. If you can learn to ignore it, it’s no good for a lady’s defense!

    Sorry this is so long, but I thought it necessary to detail experiences that have informed my opinion as to why I know these items are worthless for a lady’s protection.

    • David Michael

      You can’t ignore CS. You CAN learn to function even when you think you’re disabled by it. Prison officers do it every year.

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        @David Michael:
        Thanks! I don’t claim exaustive knowledge of CS, I just remember one of my sons, a Marine KIA, telling me that in advanced training he was required to complete a complex task w/o protective gear.
        This was related to me some time ago, and he didn’t go into great detail. I gathered it was more than the current exposure all troops undergo during “confidence training” after they’re fitted with a mask.
        I don’t know, in today’s military, they might not do it any more…

  • BestRealAmerican

    Was just at the shooting range last night..the 2nd Amendment allows each of us to carry a firearm. watch this

    “The Second Amendment IS a concealed carry permit”
