Skip to comments.Nat'l Organization for Women: Bidenís rape argument is legitimate
Posted on 10/21/2011 6:01:48 AM PDT by Rufus2007
Vice President Joe Biden has been steadfast in his claim that if the presidents American Jobs Act does not pass, rape will continue to rise. Some have questioned Biden for invoking rape to push legislation, but the National Organization for Women is not among them.
After one version of Obamas jobs bill failed to overcome a Senate filibuster last week, the administration has been working to paint Republicans as the ones to blame, and Biden has done so forcefully.
Well let me tell you, its not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a womans being raped if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape, Biden said Tuesday in Philadelphia, responding to opponents who have called the jobs bill a temporary fix.

Glad to see Biden has the feminazis on his side.
How now, old COW?
Check the stats, hon, rape has gone down over recent years. Good grief, these women are pathetic. The “Ms.” cabal has spoken....
Tell it to Juanita Broadrrick.
None of these NOW nags are in any danger.
Police don’t prevent rape and rarely stop it. Letting people protect themselves and their friends will reduce the crime rate.
A woman was raped at the Occupy Cleveland event. Apparently she was assigned a tent that she was to share with some one. That someone raped her. I haven’t seen Biden come out against THAT rape. I guess only the ones that politically serve his pupose get him worked up.
Holy crap, the NOW COWS raised their ugly heads and this is the reason! Just goes to show you that they are nothing but silly ninnies who are partisan hacks and it’s no wonder intelligent people don’t take them seriously.
Does anyone see a problem with this proposition?
And so, the Democrats' depersonalization of their adversaries continues.
..the flannel shirt brigade.
Leftists are simply insane
You don't mind if I make a call while you rape me?
Then there is the fact that the number of rapes prevented in this country each year via direct intervention by the police is so small it can probably be counted on one hand, by a person who is missing a couple of fingers.
National Organization for Stupid, Liberal Bi.....nevermmind.
The National Organization for Womyn.
The chances of the cops showing up in time to prevent the rape are practically nil, and even if they do it's still temporary. He'll be back out on the street looking for his next victim soon enough. If they were really interested in a permanent fix, they'd be telling women to arm themselves and kill the bastards.
My immediate thought after hearing Biden say this...followed by, why the hell isn't the press asking this question? More idiotic legislation would be stopped in it's tracks if the press would ask a few simple common sense questions. Like, how is it better to take the tax payer money and launder it through DC, than it is to give it directly to the local rape stoppers? The press should be mocking Biden in unison for the absurdity of the concept.
Police rarely prevent crimes - they investigate crimes & arrest perps AFTER the crime is committed.
So, unless we are willing to pay for millions more police to patrol EVERY street, business, home, & lot in America 24/7/365, which would make the USA a police state but still not stop the rapes, then I suggest women take every precaution to protect themselves & shoot the SOB rapist multiple times. And teach your children to respect others - the Golden Rule is an excellent place to start.
This is the same NOW that had exactly nothing to say about Clinton’s sexual harassment of Monica Lewinsky...so they have such great credibility as a serious organization that if the said that the sky was blue I’d have to look up to verify it.
He was “redistributing the sex”.
He was redistributing the sex.
I hear there’s a lot of that going on in New York!
DING DING DING DING! We have a winner!
You are exactly right! If either Biden or NOW were really interested in keeping women from being raped (or in keeping either gender from being murdered) then they would support the rights of individuals to arm and protect themselves. If I'm being attacked, it would be the sheerest luck to have police arrive in time to prevent the attack- as in, the patrol car just happened to be driving past or parked around the corner. Anyone with common sense knows that, but then most of us know that common sense, Biden, and NOW don't all belong in the same sentence anyway.
What's more, NOW totally lacks credibility when it expresses "concern" for women; if, for no other reason, due to its deafening silence regarding the way Muslim women are treated (I don't hear them saying a lot about things like female genital mutilation and the "honor" killings, much less the stoning of rape victims). I haven't forgotten their enthusiastic support of Bill Clinton, as well, despite his personal record with women.
As for Biden, well, there's an old saying: "If brains were gunpowder, he couldn't blow his nose!"
THEY can take the DNC funny car over the cliff and I hope they take “O” with them
Of course, Bite-Me is a liberal...anything he says or does is just peachy with the NAGS!
Surprise, surprise. NOW supports a lunatic.
Just proof positive, no matter what you do, you just can’t get some women off the phone.
Enticed. now add in solyndra misdirection of resources. plug into their argument of potential revenue used to etc.
Note to NOW advocates:
COWGIRL UP !!!
Spend your own money on a gun or 2, proper training in how to use it & get your own self ready to protect your own self.
That is a much broader solution to rape issues & it costs alot less than hiring more cops.
Stop thinking that it is every else’s job to ‘protect’ YOU!!!
Cowardly organization. It even made Tammy Bruce somewhat conservative.
This same NOW gang would rather see a woman dead with her panty hose tied around her neck, than carrying firearm.
Armed rape victims are a tremendous discouragement: Guns Effective Defense Against Rape
Since Biden, like almost all libs, fears firearms in the hands of citizens, his policy positions will result in MORE women getting raped.
I sure not many of the NOW / NAGS are threatened with rape or even rape - rape. Most are so ugly, they would make a train take a dirt road.
Has a 911 call ever stopped a rape?
Never mind the lie that new “jobs bill” money is going to fund more cops.....as though there’s no spending waste to be cut to fund all the cops possible...
The best part of the article, however, is this quote from the sheriff:
" Interestingly, Flint Police Chief Lock has repeatedly asserted that cuts in staffing had little effect on the crime rate. As the Flint Journal reported in May: Officials said the fact that 46 police officers were laid off last year had little to do with the escalating crime. Most of the crimes were between people that knew each other. No matter how many officers we have, we can't stop disputes between two people in their own homes, Lock said. Lock made a similar assertion in September, 2010, when FBI statistics were released showing violent crime in Flint had decreased in 2009. The Flint Journal reported: A smaller police force doesn't automatically mean more crime, said Flint police chief Alven Lock. There's been years when we had 300 officers and we still had more homicides, he said, referring to 1986, when he was in the homicide division and homicides hit an all-time high of 61.
I honestly am astounded by NOW backing this obvious lie.I would venture a goes that the police stopping a rape any time in the history of thee world has to be in the single digits mostly they are the clean up crew take a statement take her to the hospital after the rape.
