Republicans and rape, yet again
You would have thought the various stumbles in 2012 would have taught Republican politicians to roll up like a possum playing dead when faced with any question involving rape or sexual assault. Seemingly, they still are embarrassing themselves, including Blake Farenthold, the congressman from my district.
Now, from the quote snippet below, you might think Rush Limbaugh is acting the stand-up guy and explaining to the conservative fold what law and civilized behavior require:
If .. there’s no consent in part of the equation then here come the .. rape police.
Thank you, Rush! That is exactly right. Teach it not just to those of your fellow Republicans who don’t yet grok the primary importance of consent, but also young people.
Alas, that is a bit of a misquote. When you read what Rush said in full context and tone, he is criticizing that view(!) and labeling it a leftist conspiracy.
