Skip to comments.Obama: 'To Anyone Out There Who Has Ever Been Assaulted ... Iíve Got Your Back'
Posted on 01/26/2014 12:50:36 PM PST by Texas Eagle
President Obama made a rather sweeping statement in his weekly address as his administration launches the White House Task Force on Protecting Students from Sexual Assault. In a show of support to victims of assault, the president said:
To anyone out there who has ever been assaulted: You are not alone. We have your back. Ive got your back.
The White House blog gives a fuller description of the president's message:
In his weekly address, President Obama said that the Administration has taken another important step to protect women at college by establishing the White House Task Force on Protecting Students from Sexual Assault. An estimated 1 in 5 women is sexually assaulted at college, and the President said that we will keep taking actions like strengthening the criminal justice system, reaching out to survivors, and changing social norms so that all Americans can feel safe and protected as they pursue their own piece of the American dream.

If you really had our back, you’d have a mandate that every woman have a concealed carry permit, a gun and training on how to use it.
My first thought also. Obama might have our @$$ but he doesn’t have our backs. The boy needs to knock it off with his phony, macho tough guy act. He’s FOS.
George Zimmerman, I’m sure you feel comforted...
There you have it folks, the Obama ‘got your back’ pledge.
“If you like you nose where it is, you can keep your nose where it is...”
...as long as it’s over by your right ear.
If you are thinking you are going to be assaulted on campus, don't take a weapon to defend yourself. Instead, wait until you are being assaulted, then proceed to one of the emergency poles on campus to notify authorities. Please wait by the pole for the authorities to contact you and investigate.
For Obama to use that overused phrase “I’ve got your back” in this context is inappropriate on many different levels.
Right, as in I’ve got my hand on your back in preparation for the old heave ho.
He has never to my knowledge genuinely helped one of his subjects. Subjugation and dependency is not helping. Smoke and mirrors and double speak.
Unless you need a curtain hung, I can’t see relying on this bozo for anything.
I don't want this cornholio Obama to have my back
He might want to pull his junk out of our constitution before he starts flapping his jaws about assault.
There are 4,409 degree granting institution in the USA, 19.7 million students, 56 % are women...
So the new White House Task Force on Protecting Students from Sexual Assault are going to protect 11 million women at 4,409 schools...
That doesn't include all the gay men and transgender freaks
I hope that White House Task Force on Protecting Students from Sexual Assault has some extraordinary powers...it's a big job / S
Isn’t this a state and local issue? Or are these assaults being carried out by foreigners?
Please tell me that’s not real...
Hey, Obummer, my Constitution has been assaulted!!!
Victimhood = more Democrat voters. Beat that drum Mr Obama! High unemployment? “You didn’t build that!” says the President, so lets extend unemployment while making the illegal immigrants legal to work for all of those jobs!
Mr Obama wants to change social norms, yet willfully ignores that part of this ‘Assault’ problem might be because women now exceed 50% of the college student population. Anybody take a look at some of the most publicized college assault cases recently? Is there any significant statistical match in the persons doing the assaults?
I hope Clown Prince nobama clarifies if this means “...I got your back” applies to non-blacks assaulted by blacks in the knock-out “game”?
Better be careful, AP will be after you for copyright infringement. Or was it the NSA, getting old is tough?
Criminal Victimization in the United States, [YYYY] Statistical Tables
Table 42: "Percent distribution of single-offender victimizations, by type of crime, race of victim, and perceived race of offender"
|Year of Stats||Total
|Race of Victims||% White
|44,890||Black||13.5 *||80.2||6.3 *|
|43,890||Black||0.0 *||93.7||6.3 *|
|47,430||Black||7.2 *||68.9||23.9 *|
|67,890||Black||0.0 *||79.3||20.7 *|
D'oh! I should have checked these DoJ figures and not posted them.. now I guess I'm a racist and can be charged by the Obama/Holder Dept. of Just Us and Our People with a hate crime.
It's silly to worry. Nothing like that can ha
Let’s see. Progressives are all for promiscuity, pornography, and every imaginable sexual perversion, but they’re opposed to violence against women.
Maybe they should try thinking.
The democrats claiming to protect women is like Jeffery Dahmer saying he had a young gay friend over for dinner.
Yeah unless the rapist was black...
You know better than that, he was only to talking to Professional Black Opportunists. WHITES NEED NOT APPLY
Ask Sheldon Silver, NY Assembly Democrat Leader how many allegations of rape and sexual harassment he has covered up for his folks? Or better yet, check the NY Daily News, a Democrat political Outlet that does have a passing acquaintance with the truth.
Is Obama including all the boys that his homo pedophile friends have raped?
Same thing with the sudden focus on so-called sexual assault in the military. That's a twofer...get to pander to women and neuter the military.
Another Obama slogan - most sound fake, but this one even sounds creepy.
So the little black thugs that are going around in gangs knocking-out defenseless elderly white men are going to be prosecuted by Eric Holder's "Justice Department" for hate crimes then?
(Didn't think so ...)
No mention of those assaulted in the knock-out game?
The Dems never surprise us.
It’s just that our candidates seem to miss the obvious signals.
For 2014 here’s the playbook:
War on women
Fund a libertarian, bleed R votes, win with a Clintonian plurality.
The pole is real, they are all over college campuses.
His government is an assault against all decent productive citizens.
"Unless you are white".
Thanks Texas Eagle.
You must have missed the "I've got your back" amendment to the Constitution.
That “change social norms” thing scares the crap out of
me. Who knows what “norms” he’s going to change?
And aren’t “morms” the median anyway?
I am reminded of a sign on a bait and tackle shop
that had fallen into disrepair and their sign said,
“Get your izards and Vorms here”.
Is there any significant statistical match in the persons doing the assaults?
Don’t you be hatin now...Obama don’t llow no profilin.
My wallet gets assaulted by him every day.
Obama has my back if 10 of his sons decide to knock me out. So I got that going for me.
and if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor...
and I won’t raise taxes on anyone making under 250k....
and if we pass this stimulus bill it will create a bazillion new jobs....
I could go on, but you get the idea. No, Mr. Prezbo, we don’t believe a word you say.
I would love it if the whole GOP would break out in laughter when prez snoop dog starts spouting his “accomplishments” during the SOTU.
The only back Zero has ever had of another man is his backside.
