Eight Senators who Support Rape, Wife-Beating, and Other Heinous Crimes

http://bluntandcranky.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/eight-senators-who-support-wife-beating-rape-and-other-heinous-crimes/

Just got home, where I have a proper PC and can more easily cut and paste. Here's more of the post:


"You want to know why high-school kids from Ohio to Minnesota think it’s OK to gang-rape girls? Ask these eight Senators who lead by example. By refusing to support legislation that would protect women from violent crime, they endorse the committing of violent crime against women.

“Oh nonono, not at all”,these misogynistic louts cry; “there are other matters to consider, it’s not that we hate women”. All together now, readers: “BulllllllS********t”.

Voting against legislation to help crime victims is voting against crime victims. And that means voting FOR criminals.

And that is how these eight men voted. Their mothers must be so proud."

Again, my apologies, and my thanks for the information.

1. At least you could post their names.

Click throughs cost us limited monthly bandwidth DUers. Lucky it's the beginning of the month, so I'll bail you out here in the interest of other iPhone only DUers. But in the future we would all much appreciate that when you post an intriguing entitled OP, you would have the decency to at least fill in some details, in addition to the link.

For others, here is the first paragraph:

Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Tom Scott, Marco Rubio, Mike Johanns, Rand Paul, Pat Roberts and James Risch formally announced their uncompromising support for anyone who violently assaults women. They showed their solidarity with rapists, stalkers, wife-beaters and other such scum by voting to kill the Violence Against Women Act; indeed, they didn’t even want it to come to a vote.

2. Apologies.

Was unaware of the economic impact to DU. I shall post excerpts in the future.

3. Very good, my friend.

I have 3 GB per month. Plus, many DUers are dial-up.

It's very easy to copy/paste a few (up to four) paragraphs. A good OP will select four good ones, but in this case the first serves its purpose, to reveal the offenders' names.

As long as I stay on DU, page reloads and postings cost me very little. But click-throughs tend to dump my browser cache and load silly graphic ads on the cited commercial sites. (Just so others understand why.)

Thank you very much.

4. You can always edit your OP.

When I find only a link posted in an OP, more often than not I will click back out.

7. I always presume good intentions.

But some people who use the Intertubes don't know how those tubes work. A gentle reminder is usually sufficient. And, at the beginning of the month, I tend to be more tolerant and will do the click-through, copy and paste for others. At the end of the month when I am always against the wall, never.
