I Hope You Get Raped And Your Throat Slit!

Zerlina Maxwell, a writer and Democratic strategist recently went on Sean Hannity's show on Fox News to discuss the issue of rape and guns. Zerlina had recently written an article on titled '5 ways we can teach men not to rape,' which had the following statement...“I think that the entire conversation is wrong. I don’t want anybody to be telling women anything. I don’t want men to be telling me what to wear and how to act, not to drink. And I don’t, honestly, want you to tell me that I needed a gun in order to prevent my rape. In my case, don’t tell me if I’d only had a gun, I wouldn’t have been raped. Don’t put it on me to prevent the rape.” 

After the interview on the show, there was a response by right wing media that soon stirred the emotions of those who felt that they had to respond...and respond they did. So far there has been some racist attacks an
d at least four threats on her life. One nasty tweet that was featured on the Ed Show, clearly said 'I hope you get raped and your throat slit! Maybe then you understand why white women need to be armed.'

This is yet another marker in the contentious issues of gun control and rape. It is also noted that some of the threats or comments received by Ms. Maxwell were racist in tone, which add yet another dark dimension to the whole picture.

Ed Schultz went on in his report to reflect on other Republican/Conservatives politicians who have recently made such outrageous remarks as those made by Todd Akin about 'legitimate rape' and Richard Murdock who said that rape was something that was intended by God. 

I am also reminded of a comment made by billionaire Foster Freiss, Rick Santorum’s sugar daddy, who suggested that avoiding pregnancy was as simple as women putting an aspirin between their legs… talk about living in the past!

Schultz had quite an interesting report and interview with Ms. Zerlina Maxwell afterward, I invite you to watch the video below...
