For those of you who think Media Matters is too centrist of a website, there is an Orwellian rag known as Right Wing Watch. Great name right? Basically, it collects crazy/outrageous things people on the right say (or as we will see, things they think are crazy/outrageous), and categorizes them by person. So everyone has a neat little folder like they are in grade school!
Earlier today, conservative commentator Ann Coulter was targeted by the wingnuts. The site chose the headline “ Ann Coulter: Women Who Say They’ve Been Raped Are Typically Just ‘Girls Trying To Get Attention’ “.
Attention grabbing choice of words. Too bad Coulter said nothing close to that in the audio clip they provide.
Did anything in this clip come close to saying that women who claim rape are typically attention seekers? No. She said there are girls trying to get attention from crying rape. She didn’t say that it was most girls, or that it was typical of girls. She named three cases that she was specifically referring to, two of which have basically been proven to be fake accusations.
Coulter made a valid point, and challenged the hysteria behind the rape “crisis”, as we have done here.
The rest of the post is just RWW getting butthurt over a joke Coulter made against the Kennedys and Clintons (embedded below), who Democrats and the media fawn over like demigods. Those at RWW do so as well no doubt. Both of these families have womanizers at best, and rapists at worst within them. Cough Cough Cough. In the mind of some left wingers, sexual assault only counts if it is done by one or both of the the followings groups:
- White males who aren’t known Democrats/leftists
- Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians of any race
