First we had Steubenville and the rape case there, and people minimized the crime, saying the victim was drunk, the assault wasn’t all that violent, and other stupid s*** like that. Hey, people: sexual assault is sexual assault. Maybe someone needs to forcibly insert things into your body before you get the point?

Then we had Torrington, where 13-year-old girls were molested , and people minimized the crimes again, because the molestation was “consensual”. Hey, people: sexual assault is sexual assault. Maybe if someone molested your kids, you’d get the point?

Now another example of sexual assault: a man exposing himself while driving 90 miles an hour. Repeatedly. And people will snicker and minimize his crimes, because the man looked ridiculous, and he didn’t actually touch the women involved. Hey, people: sexual assault is sexual assault. Maybe if this preeve had done this to your mother (or killed a lot of people in a car crash while waving his junk at her), you’d get the point?

In the article, Detective Terry Christian reminds us that no sex crime is OK. And that people need to stop minimizing and start reporting. If someone had reported this mutt earlier, lots of women would not have been victimized over the years.

Sexual assault is sexual assault. It is always a crime. No one should be sexually assaulted. That, friends, is the point.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Here is a link to story regarding Mike DeWine’s promised grand jury investigation into the alleged cover-up of gang-rapes committed there.

It is profoundly disturbing that so many people refused to help convict the scumbucket rapists. One wonders what the non-cooperative people are hiding?

Here’s hoping the truth comes out and the guilty are locked away after this is over. And here’s hoping that Steubenville women can live in a safer town after the local rape freaks are behind bars.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Blunt and Cranky has a tendency to throw gauntlets. Part of that is a personality trait, and part of it is designed to promulgate his viewpoint. When one issues a challenge, one must accept that the “challenge-ee” will pick the glove up and whup it right back at the challenger. And so it goes.

In some cases, the replies are piles of neatly arranged facts (real or alleged), with which the combatants duel away. This usually happens with economics and other quantifiable topics. But there are done subjects that are not as easily proven or disproven, and that’s where we can’t always settle on a common view.

For example: last Saturday’s post about Steubenville , in which this writer threw down on the town for their lack of action in the face of a truly horrific rape crime spree.

A lot of responses came back, alleging bias, assumptions, tendentiousness, and so forth. All reasonable thoughts, and worthwhile discussion topics. However, no one came back with any proof to counter the original post: rather, the replies were either themselves based on inference and anecdotal evidence, or were naught but ad hominem attacks.

It is always possible that your humble correspondent is full of s***. If you can prove that 90 % of Steubenvillians are in fact bravely and loudly fighting back against the rape culture that permeates their city, just forward your evidence along and a full retraction will be published.

Bring it. It would be good to be proven wrong on this topic.

Mr. B & C

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/03/steubenville-royal-mayo/63650/  In this story, the reporter shows just how many lying/stupid/delusional/rape-loving/just-plain-perverted people live in Steubenville, ‘Hia (ask a local to explain the spelling): almost everyone there seems to have amnesia regarding the recent guilty-as-hell verdict that was rendered to the rapists,  and are somehow trapped in a fantasy world. A world in which men rape and abuse women, and women are to blame for the abuse they suffer, because, well, that’s the way they roll in that s***hole of a town.

We hear, occasionally, that “there are good and decent people here who are appalled, blahblahblah, the rapists don’t represent our values, woofwoofwoof”, but how often have we seen these alleged concerned citizens of Steubenville doing f***-all? When was the last time you saw a crowd of locals converge on the sheriff’s office demanding action? How many of the supposed “decent majority” of Steubenvillians have you heard demanding that their town be cleaned up?

Put-near none of ’em, yup. That’s how many. People, listen up: no matter the purity of your inner feelings, unless you actually do something your feebly whispered protestations mean nothing. If you continue to hide, sniveling and cowering in fear of the big bad Rape Crew, then you can’t complain when the rest of us think that your entire town is a load of rapists and victims.

Don’t want to wear a Crown O’ Polished Turds? Speak up. If not, you’re a Lying Sack of Steubenvillian S***. Come on. Prove otherwise, or accept the label.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Yes, that’s right: two 13-year-old girls were raped in Torrington, CT not long ago, and for all the bulls*** being spewed by the Pro-Rape contingent in that town and elsewhere, the cops keep arresting people: http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/03/28/2785524/4th-conn-teen-charged-in-sexual.html

So much for the “no big deal” crap we’ve been hearing from a**holes around the country. So much for the “what was she doing hanging around football players” crap, the “she wanted it” crap, the “slut, whore, bitch” crap, and all the other bits of s*** being slung at the victims. Cops almost never bust men for sex crimes when no sex crimes have been committed. Hell, cops oftentimes don’t bust men for sex crimes when there HAVE been sex crimes committed.

Yes, it really happened. Yes, it’s completely and totally the fault of the rapists. No, it’s not the girl’s fault. Period. End of story. Fin.

Mr Blunt and Cranky

Yesterday, one Royal a**hole Mayo, past president and current board member of the Steubenville NAACP, said some truly vomit-inducing things about a poor girl who was raped by one of his friends. You can read the Revised Cranky Edition of the story, and find Mayo’s Facebook page HERE.

Late yesterday, the NAACP did, at least, repudiate the remarks of His Imperial Mayoness. However, they spent at least as much time covering their collective arses as they did condemning his slanderous, sexist, disgusting pro-rape statements.

You see, Royal woman-hater Mayo is still a board member of the Steubenville NAACP. They can say he’s not a spokesperson, they can say he’s no longer a chapter president, and that may be true. But he is still an officer and member of the organization. So they don’t appear to be all that upset about what their official said, now do they?

If they were really concerned by the Mayo’s pro-rape positions and his spreading of lies about the victim of a crime his buddy Malik Richmond was convicted of committing, they’d at least have removed him from the board. But they haven’t. So they aren’t.

As a public service, this writer most humbly suggests a new slogan for the NAACP: ” advancing civil rights for men, and putting women in their place”. Seems to fit.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

There is a common tactic used by extremists and jackassess of all stripes who wish to dominate public discourse: the most polite term Mr. Blunt and Cranky can use is “Chain-Yanking”. Here’s one example: when it became the law for employers to provide preventative health care (including birth control) to covered employees at no cost (or reduced cost), on Rush Limbaugh called a Congressional witness a “slut” (and worse). The actual merits of the policy were not debated, because nearly everyone (having had their chain yanked) started yelling about the pundit’s sexism blahblahblahbittyblahblah.  This suited the pundit and his cronies just fine, as they were in charge of the conversation and could subsequently control the message to suit themselves.

Mind, this writer does not support sexism in any form, at any time, in any way, shape or form. When sexism (or another ism) rears its ugly head, we should indeed whack-a-mole that head right down, and pound it down again whenever it pops up. We must, however, not lose sight of the point that is being obscured, often deliberately, by the chain-yanker du jour. And we must also call the chain-yankers out, especially when they claim that they are “just asking questions”.

Recently a number of teenaged girls were sexually assaulted in Steubenville and Torrington. The chain-yankers immediately blamed the victims under the guise of asking questions like “what was a 13-year-old girl doing hanging around 18-year-old boys anyway?”  Of course, the yankers denied blaming victims, even though it was obvious that they were doing just that. And they were called on it, to the point that the crime itself was no longer the topic of conversation – instead, everyone was talking about slut-shaming and victim-blaming. Important topics, to be sure, but regardless, we got our chains yanked and thereby sidetracked; thus taking the spotlight off of the criminals, where it belonged.

A woman was mugged, shot in the leg, and her infant murdered a few days ago. What was the first question asked? “Why didn’t she just hand over her purse?”, that was the was the first question asked.  The yanker denied victim-blaming: she was “just asking the question”. Uh-huh. Maybe she was fooling herself,  but she wasn’t fooling too  many other people with that hogwash. But again, a potentially productive conversation on social policy degenerated into a slugfest over victim-blaming.

Yesterday, this writer got his chain well and truly yanked, much to his own chagrin. A sexist comment about men was posted, and  he wound up swirling around the drain with everybody else, even to the extent of losing his temper and saying some unacceptable things. Apologies are hereby offered to everyone  who was offended  by those stupid, uncalled-for remarks.

No matter the topic or the political persuasion of the person talking, chain-yanking happens, and we can all get caught if we aren’t careful. Your humble correspondent will redouble his efforts to remain focused on important topics, and hopes all of us can just let the yankers flush themselves away, leaving the rest of America to get some s*** accomplished.

Mr. B & C

According to the amazingly stupid population of Torrington CT, the children who were raped by three local high school football players are to blame for being raped. These cretins say that the barely-teenaged giris made the criminals commit the crimes, as If these children possessed magical superpowers that allowed them to control the actions of adult males.

This is ridiculous, people. Pedestrians don’t cause muggers to assault them. Banks don’t make people rob them. And women (including teens, Tweens, and younger girls) do. not. make. men. rape. them.

Hypocritical fools like the rape apologists in Torrington want to have it both ways: on the one hand, these raping scumball football players are powerful, authoritative, god-like young men. And at the same time, they are weak little wussy-boys who can be commanded by little girls to commit crimes.

Sorry, peeps, both statements cannot simultaneously be true. The most likely explanation (and the one preferred by the authorities, you’ll note) is that the accused criminals are responsible for their crimes.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

See these idiotic fools in Torrington, CT? They are holding up fingers to give the number (21), the jersey number of one of the child-molesting, raping scumbucket football players who is currently awaiting trial for his despicable, perverted, revolting crimes:

c0407c8e950211e2bce412313d173966

Yes, there are girls among them. Girls telling a rapist that they support his raping. Boys, too, telling girls that they believe in their right to rape. Oh, and they say it’s all the girl’s fault: http://www.registercitizen.com/articles/2013/03/25/news/doc514fd4e6545d2940833348.txt

Has no one told these s***-for-brained sociopathic jackasses that rape is a f***ing crime? Evidently not: the cops seem to have decided it was no biggie: http://www.westhartfordnews.com/articles/2013/03/21/news/doc514b355849970363491914.txt

Mr. Blunt and Hugely Pissed Off

Regular readers will recall Mr. Blunt and Cranky waxing wroth at Candy Crowley and the rest of the rape cheerleaders at CNN. Short version: after two scumbucket pervert violent criminals were found to be guilty of sexually assaulting a minor, CNN spent the day weeping over the fate of the poor, pitiful perps; they also pretty much ignored the victim, when they weren’t calling her a drunk. Deplorable.

Not surprisingly, CNN is being deplored. And their reaction is, quite frankly, beyond stupid. Poppy Harlow is “outraged” that anyone who saw her pro-rapist slanted coverage would think that she, well, gave her coverage a pro-rapist slant.

And it goes beyond one idiot reporter with a dorky name. Even after hundreds of thousands of petition signatures, CNN is brushing off the outrage of its viewers as “invalid”. Truly epic idiocy.

CNN would do well to remember that they are competing in the marketplace with a large number of competitors. And any time a business pisses off a quarter-million of its customers, they run the risk of going out of business.

The Clueless News Network.
