The Regime that promoted civility at the beginning of the year has gone from "pass this bill," to "pass this bill or rapes will happen, and you can thank Republicans for it."
Of course, the loyal feminazis at NOW are just fine with women being used in such a demeaning way by Bite Me (Daily Caller).
After one version of Obama’s jobs bill failed to overcome a Senate filibuster last week, the administration has been working to paint Republicans as the ones to blame, and Biden has done so forcefully.
“Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape,” Biden said Tuesday in Philadelphia, responding to opponents who have called the jobs bill a temporary fix.
“It’s not temporary to that woman … I wish these guys that thought it’s temporary, I wish they had some notion what it’s like to be on the other side of a gun. Or a 200 pound man standing over you telling you to submit. Folks, it matters. It matters!”
...According to NOW president Terry O’Neill, Biden’s rape concern is well-founded.
“I think he is concretely worried that with fewer police on the beat crime will go up,” O’Neill told The Daily Caller. “I think he is imagining the lives of real people. That is not a device — that is an actual ability to know what everyday people go through.”
O’Neill said the administration’s job creation initiative is essential to everyday Americans — and that obstructionists in Congress are being careless with other people’s lives.
“The people that are blocking jobs legislation really don’t care, and don’t have an idea of what its like,” O’Neill said. “They don’t have an idea what it’s like to have your child in a classroom of 45 kids and one teacher — and that is what we are looking at if these kinds of jobs are not restored.
“They don’t have a clue what its like to be threatened with rape, and there are not enough police officers to come and prevent it or stop it.”
“I think it is absolutely legitimate to demand that these uncaring un-empathic legislators get a clue,” O’Neill added.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney attempted to clarify Biden’s statements on Thursday. “It would be hard to find anyone who doesn’t agree with the simple equation that fewer police officers on the street has a direct effect on the crime rate,” Carney said. “That’s the point he was making, and that’s a point that the president absolutely does share.”
The problem is, as the DC points out, rapes have been on the decrease.
According to data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation — highlighted by The American Thinker – forcible rapes committed in the United states decreased from 42.3 for every 100,000 people in 1991 to 27.5 in 2010.
Which, if anyone was confused as to their purpose, should show the real purpose of the phony women's organization like NOW. All NOW does is agitate for ever liberal cause in the most shrill, shrieking manner, with gals who resemble the ex-wife from Hell. I can attest after suffering through hearing Terry O'Neill speak at last Saturday's "Resist We Much" rally.
If NOW really cared about women, they would object to them being used for political purposes as Bite Me and the Regime does. But as loyal liberals, for every omelet, you must break a few eggs.
