But liberals can hold a fundraiser for an ex-congressman who was one of the most unhinged, partisan, left-wing moonbats from the state of Florida, and the rape jokes flew like birds (Daily Caller).
The five comedians there to support Grayson performed jokes that were edgy, raunchy and sometimes funny. That’s standard fare for the comedy club circuit. Topics that would be out of bounds to joke about in normal conversation are covered in abundance when the lights dim on the stand-up stage. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that. What’s unusual is that 10 days before Election Day, a congressional candidate would raise money from an event full of rape jokes.
Making fun of Republican Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s suggestion that there is some biological mechanism to prevent a woman from being impregnated when she is raped, comedian Jimmy Dore riffed on how he and his wife were poor when they were younger and couldn’t afford birth control.
“Guess you’re going to have to rape me,” Dore mimicked his wife saying.
Melodramatically striding to the stage to Enya’s “Only Time,” (Sarah) Silverman declared to much laughter as the music faded, “Wow. God, I love that song — I was a brutally raped to that song.”
“Didn’t ruin it for me,” she added.
Silverman went on to explain that while rape is perhaps the most “heinous crime imaginable,” rape jokes are a “hidden gem in comedy.”
“Rape jokes are great because they make a comedian seem very edgy and very dangerous,” she said.
Plus, she added, “who’s going to complain?”
Silverman joked that rape victims are “traditionally not complainers” and the worst that could happen is ”after a show a woman might come up to you and say, ‘Look, I’m a victim of rape … and I thought that joke was insensitive and inappropriate and totally my fault.’”
Moving away from rape jokes, Silverman told the crowd of just under 100 that they must remember that both conservatives and liberals want the best for the country, even if liberals are more “open-minded” and conservatives are “less open-minded” and ” a little more “faggot-ish.”
But, “I pray for them,” she said.
It gets raunchier so you can click and read the rest.
OK, what Todd Akin said was wrong, and he has apologized several times for it. He has not made the same mistake. Unfortunately, many in the conservative movement (myself included) quickly threw him under the bus because of the stigma that the abortion lobby has put on anyone who deeply questions their blood sacrament. It was the wrong thing to do. I still don't agree with what Akin said, but think Missourians should keep in mind he has not made the same mistake and he'd be a much better Senator than the corrupt, Obamabot Claire McCaskill.
That said, what these liberals have done is much, much worse than what Akin did. They are taking one of the most brutal crimes and making a joke out of it. Don't get me started about Sarah Silverman. She is a vile creature who, if you remember, made a video attacking Jewish GOP donor Sheldon Adelson. In the video, she asked him to give money to Obama and she was seen humping a small dog near the end of the video. Did you notice also she used an anti-gay slur in the DC story above?
How many times, especially if you're on Twitter, do these same "anti-rape" liberals attack conservative women with rape threats? I've seen it done to Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin, Dana Loesch, and even yesterday to a teenage conservative.
So you libs don't give me your self-righteous malarkey about rape when you joke about it and threaten women with it with a frightening regularity.
