Yes, Republicans are wussies. From reading this thread, so are many FREEPERS.
What Akin said is true. If a woman is actually raped, the female body is less likely to conceive.
Ignorance, cowardice...what a bunch of heros we have here.
The only thing worse than sheer stupidity is the fools defending sheer stupidity. The majority here are calling this guy an idiot, the minority are the Kool-Aid drinkers.
It wasn’t just the comment about conception when raped though....wth did he mean about ‘legitimate’ rape? Who decides what rapes are so called legitimate? Sorry but the dude needs to go.
Not wussies - COWARDS!
See my post #44
Yes, I understand no one has much stomach to defend yet another from the media and Liberals who will (with the aid and comfort of Republicans and FReepers) ultimately be forced from his position, but they are misguided.
And yet Joe Biden gets a free pass for telling a Black audience, in a faux sothern drawl, that Republicans will put them in chains!
Like using the N-word, apparently somethings are just so hiddeous that they dare never be mentioned! — unless you’re a Liberal.
“What Akin said is true. If a woman is actually raped, the female body is less likely to conceive.”
I am a 100% pro-lifer, and I can explain my position in a way that a child could understand, without having to resort to quasi-scientific theories of the likelihood of conception during a rape:
“An unborn child is an innocent human being, and has the same right to life of any innocent human being, irrespective of how he was conceived. I support the death penalty for rapists (and hope that SCOTUS overrules its ahistorical jurisprudence limiting the use of capital punishment to murder), but I do not support the death penalty for the innocent child.
Our Constitution sets limits on the use of Corruption of Blood, since the Framers found it illegitimate to punish a child for the sins of his father. When the state permits the child who is a product of rape to be killed, the state is permitting the child to be killed as punishment for his fathers crime. An unborn child is no less human just because his father was a rapist.”
Had Akin stated the above, he would have been criticized by liberals but would still be on his way to beating McCaskill in November. Instead, he made an outrageous claim that was completely unnecessary, and will result in him losing in November if he stays on the ballot. As much as it pains me to say it, I think that he should step down and let another conservative Republican run.
YOU ARE A 100% RIGHT.
WHAT HE SAID WAS TRUE.
ALL THOSE FREEPERS AND GOOD REPUBLICANS SHOULD HONOR ONE WHO SPEAKS THE TRUTH.
I WEAR A BRACELET THAT SAYS,”THE MORE I KNOW PEOPLE,THE MORE I LOVE MY DOG”.
The goal of the Tea Party is to start by cleaning house on the GOP side by ridding the party of corruption, poor candidate, lack of inner strength and general stupidity.
Akins is disqualified by at least two of these goals.
“Ignorance, cowardice...what a bunch of heros we have here.”
Nail meet hammer.
Romney’s position is that abortion should be limited to rape and incest.
It sounds like all Akin did was run with that and explain that “rape” means when a woman is sexually assaulted—taken against her will (like Clinton’s many victims).
It sounds like he was addressing the many young career `Elaines’ (Seinfeld) who consider men as “sponge-worthy,” or not.
When her birth control fails and she decides to use the ultimate “birth control” she salves her conscience by telling the people at the child-murdering clinic, “Oh yeah, uh, I was raped. (That’s the ticket: He `raped’ me for six weeks. Then he left me. For a `nice’ girl, the b*****d.)”
“Legitimate rape.” We’re all grownups here; at least I knew what he meant.
He’s getting mau-mau’d and the GOP is caving—as usual. Yep, Republicans have balls the size of BBs.
That is why democrats win elections. They support each other when mistakes are made. Until we fight like they do, Dems will continue to win
