Skip to comments.Biden’s Solution to Dating Violence: ‘Knock Them on Their A…’
Posted on 06/23/2012 5:51:55 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Vice President Joe Biden speaking out against dating violence during a White House event on Thursday said that dating violence and sexual assault wont end until attitudes change and the perpetrator is treated like a pariah.
But the progress weve made so far isnt enough, Biden said. Young women still face the highest rates of dating violence, and nearly one in five college women will face sexual assault during her college career, he said.
Guys, these just arent statistics. Theyre people you know. Theyre your sister, the woman youre in class with that you like, people you grew up with, somebody elses daughter. Just come with me down to the hotline or walk into a violence shelter for women, the vice president said.
Biden was joined by Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett and athletes to release a new public service announcement (PSA) that will air on television and the Internet this summer, with the message that dating violence is unacceptable.
Biden turned his attention to the professional athletes he shared the stage with. These guys are real men. Somebody walk in a locker room and say, Last night, man, I did the following
These guys are gonna either knock them on their a
. Theyre either, they are going to say something to them. And thats a big change. Thats a big change. Look, thats what this is all about, because one really is too many.

wow, she pulls his strings, too?
They can say that now, now that Ted Kennedy's dead.
As if those poor women haven't been traumatized enough.
I’m surprised that Bill Clinton didn’t do something about this social trajedy years ago. . . . /sarc
Strings? I think he only has one.
Let’s get conceal carry back on the table, Joe!
you're probably right. And a thin one at that.
Rapists are “Pariahs”? Here I thought it was a requirment to be either a Democratic sentaor or POTUS....
Hear that Bill....you are no longer invited to Obama Campaign fundraisers.
He’s advocating assault AND battery in an anti-violence speech.
Pipsqueak biden is such a badass...isn’t he???
I believe this is called vigilantism which the big media/democrat complex is currently against. Or not.
So, to coin a phrase, the veep is suggesting that women “stand their ground?”
But...but..in schools, they’re taught “non-conflict” solutions. This goes against everything the Progressives preaches...I just don’t understand/ sarc.
Since Biden is now advocating extra-judicial penalties for sexual assaults, how would he feel if some people broke Sandusky out of jail and hanged him?
——and nearly one in five college women will face sexual assault during her college career, he said.-—
And that goes rate goes higher if she participates in an Occupy protest.
The definition of sexual assault for those statistics is a joke. If a woman walks it a bar and a drunk says he like how she looks in her sweater she has been sexually assaulted.
...nearly one in five college women will face sexual assault during her college career, he said.
Yes, it’s those horrible predatory men. Look for a new campaign from the idiot that has people in an online video confessing to the crime of being white. This time it will feature white men confessing to the crime of being males.
While I don’t believe these numbers, I can believe instances of sexual assault are up over my days in college in the 1960s.
For one thing, we girls did not sleep around, and we kept ourselves out of ambiguous situations in which someone might think we were “easy”. Public drunkenness was just not acceptable among women. Again, we did not want to look easy, and we did not want to let down our defenses. For the same reasons, we used the buddy system; in those days, it was unheard of for a respectable girl to go into or out of a bar alone.
You are a brute with paleolithic underpinnings!
Let justice be done and handled with care through the system.
We went to a college orientation session at the UofMn this week. The “buddy system” is EXACTLY what the entering students are strongly encouraged to practice. So in that respect things haven’t changed that much.
But look at any hour of prime time TV. The constant message is sex is fun. The cool normal people have lots of sex with lots of people. It doesn’t mean anything, it’s just fun. And afterwards we can all laugh about it.
In all the lectures young folks get these days the one thing that ought to be taught isn’t - DON’T WATCH TV. They are LYING to you. If you try to copy those people you see on TV you will ruin your life.
It’s a good thing that Joe Biden is making these remarks in “Gay Pride Month”.
Physical and sexual assault by persons in same sex relationships are a serious problem that the MSM chooses to ignore.
Especially as drunken and doped up homosexuals are having Pride parades across this nation today, expect violence against those “in the community” BY those “in the community” to rise tonight just as partner violence rises during Carnival in Rio.
Butch lesbians will bitch slap a woman too.
One of the men in the Lawrence v. Texas case was under investigation for physical assault against his lover (who was murdered in a still unsolved mystery).
The hate that the media dare not speak’s name.
You just hold onto a patriarchal view of sexuality that comes from puritanical American theocratic male dominated culture.
Sex is a birthright to be shared with anyone and everyone. Free love. If you hold it to yourself you are stingy and frigid and have problems, man.
The argument against abstinence is NOT that it doesn’t work. It’s that it is a suppression of sexual desire. All moral judgments over sexual relations should end!
Celebrate the orgasm. Ignore that “ring” and monogamy vow. If someone is in a relationship, but willing, go for it. Why draw the line at people who aren’t related? Sometimes you have a hot cousin. Same goes for members of the same sex.
NOTE: All of the above was playing devil’s advocate, making the arguments of the sex positive libertine Left. And it leaves behind a trail of human debris. But it is what they are after.
You are so right. It is very rare that I even take a peek at a sitcom, but, yes, that is what they are portraying.
I have a DIL who loves “How I Met Your Mother”, so I watched it once with her. I am sure I really got on her nerves with my comments of disapproval. There is all kinds of sleeping around, and, as you say, it is just the cool thing to do on these shows.
Years ago, when “Seinfeld” first came on, I watched it rather regularly. I found it quite entertaining, but then the sleeping around started regularly on that show, so that ended my viewing of that.
But the progress weve made so far isnt enough, Biden said””
Who is WE? Was preventing violence against women on obozo’s priority list too? When is Joe going to grow up? Is this a crisis in the country we haven’t been made aware of? Running out of excuses for your lousy administration, Joe?
I didn’t know it was possible to have so many questions in one paragraph but this is what it’s come down to. Everything out of those idiot’s mouths in DC ends up with us scratching our heads.
A lot of your “satire” was previously written by Karl Marx. Of course, the people you mock are ardent believers in Marx’s teachings. However, most of them never heard of Marx.
And what about other kinds of assault, Joe? What if somebody jumps you, knocks you to the ground, jumps on top of you and starts pounding your head into the pavement?
