Once again, this country makes you want to puke. a 17-year old serial rapist and convicted child molester is walking free pending his sentencing for three counts of sexually assaulting little girls, and the city in which he committed these heinous crimes is abusing the victims.

One victim, who was 13 at the time of the crime, became pregnant as a result of the rape. She has been vilified and threatened, her home has been vandalized, and she is about to give birth to a baby her stinking rapist forcibly implanted into her. One more time, people: not only does this child have psychological trauma to deal with, but she also has a living reminder of the vicious crime perpetrated on her staring up at her 24/7.
The victim is being made to bear the consequences of a crime committed against her while the convicted criminal who raped her walks free, perhaps raping other little girls while you read this. He will be sentenced within the week, perhaps to probation so that he can keep on sexually abusing children.

And what does the town of Elwood Indiana do about this horrific situation? Why, they support the stinking pervert sex offender and abuse his child victims, that’s what they do:

“A former self-proclaimed “social bug” — she was a cheerleader and athlete — the young victim has become reclusive since learning she was pregnant.

“I can’t walk out the door without someone calling me a whore or slut,” the girl said. “I used to have a lot of friends, or people I thought were my friends, but as soon as this happened I just isolated myself.”

The repeated vandalism incidents at the family’s home — including the words “whore” and “slut” scrawled on the garage doors — were reported to police. But Green said no charges were filed because there were no witnesses to the acts.

Her daughter also has been the target of mean-spirited rumors and speculation that her pregnancy is the result of promiscuous behavior.”

This blogger is fed up with all these stinking little s***hole towns: Steubenville, Torrington, Elwood, and the rest of them. They are a load of sanctimonious, hypocritical, slut-shaming, victim-blaming rapist-loving assholes, and this writer wishes he had the time and resources to travel the country looking for these serial-rapist worshipping jackasses so as to be able to barf on each and every one of them.

But that is better than these rape cheerleaders deserve anyway. What the citizens of Elwood et.al. deserve is to be on the receiving end of the hateful s*** they spew at the innocent children who have been raped twice: first by the sex offender who raped their bodies, and then by the townsfolk who gleefully rape their minds and souls afterwards. Let them taste their own s*** and see how they like it.

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.
