Remember that “war on women” that Republicans were supposedly waging during the presidential election campaign?
Sure, it got some fuel from a couple of boneheaded GOP politicians, but it’s still amazing that anybody could buy into that story line considering how the Left acts toward women.
Consider this recent scene: Amanda Collins, a young mother and a rape survivor, had just testified in a Colorado state hearing about her horrific experience in which she was raped in her college’s parking lot by an armed, serial rapist and could not defend herself because the university’s “gun-free zone” policy forced her to leave her handgun at home.
Collins is a powerful advocate for laws allowing concealed carrying of weapons and against laws establishing “gun-free zones.”
But Collins’ message was lost on Democrat State Sen. Evie Hudak, who pushed her own agenda:
“I just want to say, statistics are not on your side, even if you had had a gun. You said that you were a martial arts student, I mean person, experience in tae kwon do, and yet because this individual was so large and was able to overcome you even with your skills, and chances are that if you had had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.”
Hudak evidently missed the part where Collins had explained that her attacker had a gun — despite the “gun-free zone”! — and that it was the handgun that the assailant used to overpower Collins’ martial arts skills. It wasn’t just that he was “so large.”
Had Collins been carrying her handgun, it certainly could have evened the odds, and it could have frightened off the attacker.
During the recent rush to get rid of guns, Democrats have offered women alternatives, from Vice President Biden’s suggestions for a woman to use a shotgun in a foolish and illegal manner while offering herself as bait, to the helpful suggestions that women should pee themselves or vomit.
You know what frightens attackers even better than firing your only two shots into the air or creating a prodigious display of vomit? Pointing a handgun or rifle at their heads.
Hudak has apologized to Collins for being “insensitive.” What Hudak, Biden and other Democrats need to apologize for is gross stupidity and incompetence to lead.
Essentially, the Democrat Party is telling women “hey, you may as well just lean back and try to enjoy it, because we aren’t going to let you protect yourselves.”
On a larger scale, that exact same attitude is extended to all Americans, whom the Democrats regard as natural victims, at best sheep incapable of fending for themselves.
Consider the letter that Attorney General Eric Holder sent to Sen. Rand Paul, who had asked whether the president had the legal authority to order a drone strike against an American on U.S. soil without a trial.
The Obama Administration recently did almost that, attacking Americans in the Middle East who were suspected of involvement with terrorism.
Holder wrote to Paul, “It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States.”
Americans are apparently asking for it, what with that Constitution that practically screams “drone me.”
“We’re not going to let you defend yourselves. Just lean back and enjoy it, baby” could be the Obama Administration’s motto.
The Colorado Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, by the way, on Monday passed the bill banning concealed guns on college campuses.
The Democrats are enough to make you want to vomit, but they still haven’t gone away.
I trust most conservative Americans are cultivating other options, should the need arise.
