GOP Would Love to Support Reauthorization of Violence Against Women Act, But, You Know

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Currently not in the kitchen making her husband a sandwichAnybody with half a brain (and specifically those with half a brain) knows that the GOP loves women — loves them just to death! — and it’s the Democratic leadership like Louis C.K. and Your Wonkette who call cunty women “cunts” so we are super-way-worse. So why is everybody ragging all over the poor maligned GOP? Because the Democrats are playing partisan political “tricks” on them, like forcing them to vote against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, that’s why! Twirl your mustaches, everybody! Twirl your mustaches for evil!

Let Alabama Jeff Sessions explificate the Rovian madness of the modern Democrat Party:

“I favor the Violence Against Women Act and have supported it at various points over the years, but there are matters put on that bill that almost seem to invite opposition,” said Senator Jeff Sessions, Republican of Alabama, who opposed the latest version last month in the Judiciary Committee. “You think that’s possible? You think they might have put things in there we couldn’t support that maybe then they could accuse you of not being supportive of fighting violence against women?”

Yes, that is possible indeed! So, like what?

The legislation would continue existing grant programs to local law enforcement and battered women shelters, but would expand efforts to reach Indian tribes and rural areas. It would increase the availability of free legal assistance to victims of domestic violence, extend the definition of violence against women to include stalking, and provide training for civil and criminal court personnel to deal with families with a history of violence. It would also allow more battered illegal immigrants to claim temporary visas, and would include same-sex couples in programs for domestic violence.

You could see how the Republicans could never vote for anything like that, because that would mean admitting gheys exist, and also Mexicans. Case closed! But is there more? Perhaps a concerned woman for America could give her view!

Janice Shaw Crouse [pictured above!], a senior fellow at the conservative Concerned Women for America, said her group had been pressing senators hard to oppose reauthorization of legislation she called “a boondoggle” that vastly expands government and “creates an ideology that all men are guilty and all women are victims.”

That’s just how Your Wonkette reads it too. What about you, Phyllis Schlafly? Got anything shitty and insane to add?

Last month on the conservative Web site Townhall.com, the conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly called the Violence Against Women Act a slush fund “used to fill feminist coffers” and demanded that Republicans stand up against legislation that promotes “divorce, breakup of marriage and hatred of men.”

Thank you. So the rest of you sluts, who are unconcerned, not “women,” and certainly not “for” America, take a tip from Phyllis: before you leave your abusive husband, just try to remember what you loved about him in the first place. And while you’re at it, try not to make him so mad!

Jeff Sessions should just remember all the reasons he voted for it in the first place.

V572 Flambé March 15, 2012 at 12:35 pm

U of AL Law grad Sessions opposes any "increase [in] the availability of free legal assistance to victims of domestic violence." It's a guild thing.

You think they might have put things in there we couldn’t support that maybe then they could accuse you of not being supportive of fighting violence against women?

Where on Earth could the Democrats ever have learned that tactic?

(You, Jeffy. They learned it from you.)

After the Republicans have their asses handed to them in the next election, I'm going to send each of them a bouquet of roses with a card that reads, "I'm sorry baby. It'll never happen again."

MissTaken March 15, 2012 at 12:19 pm

"I only voted against you because I love you".

Nothing personal, but I found a younger, hotter candidate.

Why, you're the tender type. My card is going to read "Look what you made me do."

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Don't forget to add, "You FUCKING BITCH," at the bottom in bold uppercase.

Be sure to personally kick the shit out of each of those motherfuckers right after they get the goddamn flowers. I will "go with," for assistance.

CthuNHu March 15, 2012 at 4:23 pm

No male Republican official has ever laid a single finger on a woman.

Because half of them have no interest in touching women at all, and the other half use the whole fist.

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I done told that FUCKING BITCH a million times, goddammit, why you gotta make me treat you like that? But!! Do they LISTEN? (draws back arm, makes a fist) Maybe THIS will teach them to keep their FUCKING BITCH mouth shut, like Gawd intended.

memzilla March 15, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Of course Rethuglicans have no interest in "filling feminist coffers."

Filling rentboy coffers, on the other hand…

As Ike Turner said about Tina, todays GOP only supports hitting women the right amount.

Boojum_Reborn March 15, 2012 at 12:15 pm

Callyson March 15, 2012 at 12:16 pm

I learned in school that the Republicans rode to power in the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's partly due to their claim to be the Law and Order party, defending the nation against criminals. I guess that this claim now comes with an asterisk: *protection from criminals does not apply to womenfolk.
And I get to go to my accounting class tonight, led by a very vocal Republican instructor. I swear, if he starts in on an unrelated GOP talking point tangent–yet again–I am walking the fuck out. So sick of these assholes.

actor212 March 15, 2012 at 12:19 pm

At the end of the semester, file a complaint with the department.

Callyson March 15, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Oh, I'll be calling him out on the evaluation–which the department actually reads. I've got notes with several facts to respond to what he's said so far.
One thing that does help–the second midterm (which we had last week) was rather difficult and students–including the Paultards who sit behind me–are pissed. So the silver lining is that if he does go off again, he just might move some of my classmates toward Obama…

Is it actually against the rules for professors to express political views? Isn't this used against "our side" all the time?

UnholyMoses March 15, 2012 at 3:40 pm

"Our side's political views" = "Mentioning anything most consider being of this reality, but righties think is evil/wrong/unprofitable/kind"

Lascauxcaveman March 15, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Give him a break, it's just that double-entry bookkeeping is so darn political.

SorosBot March 15, 2012 at 12:34 pm

They didn't really mean criminals though; that was just their code word for black people, for a time hippies, and also uppity women.

snoopyfan2010 March 15, 2012 at 1:15 pm

It is okay if the points are conservative. That is a REAL education.

chicken_thief March 15, 2012 at 1:21 pm

See. See!!! Santorum was right about the indoctrination of our students by the pinko leftist commie….. oh, wait….

doloras March 15, 2012 at 6:48 pm

No, the asterisk says: "*for "criminals", read "Negros"."

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:02 pm

I know you probably can't do it because GRADES, but in my heart I shall console myself with the vision of you yelling in his face, "You are SO FULL OF SHIT, I can't believe they actually let you teach, you moronic fuckhead." This will be my "goodnight, beddy-bye time" Thought Of Consolation.

The "Violence Against Women Act" is a horrible name… Me thinks it need a NO or a STOP in there somewhere.

Can we make it so its acronym is VAJAYJAY?

Guppy March 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

You'll just be forcing some nice man to attack you with that skirt, just like those awful altar boys who forced those holy Catholic priests to stray from their vows of celibacy.

OK, so what the hell IS a "boondoggle skirt"?

SorosBot March 15, 2012 at 12:18 pm

So the dumbass fuckhead thinks it's better for women to stay married to abuse creeps than to get divorced. Motherfucking cockheaded shitbitch.

Getting funding used to be SUCH a fucking BITCH because all these old farts would look us in the eye and claim that we were DESTROYING Teh Famblee.

prommie March 15, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Those hypocritical conniving dmeocrats have filled the Violence Against Women Act with these extraneous provisions that they know we republicans cannot support, like this provision here, which would make it illegal for a husband to beat his wife, even if "she had it coming."

ManchuCandidate March 15, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I'm pretty sure the GOPers don't want anyone to vote for them except wife beating chronic masturbators of scat porn with an altar boy fetish.

Obvs, you're using the wrong line.

NorthStarSpanx March 15, 2012 at 12:30 pm

More legal assistance means only more reporting and filing assault charges. Means acknowledging more victims – you know, what do we expect? To be raped too much? Or just right? If our men don't do it, our doctors will, at least in Virginia, with the transvaginal probes.

The GOP just hates victims, and they attack their own once they become victims too.

BarackMyWorld March 15, 2012 at 12:31 pm

…would include same-sex couples in programs for domestic violence.

I'm so glad the Concerned Women of America are finally standing up for the rights of men. For far too long, white men in America have been held down by laws requiring decency and respect for the penis-challenged. It's finally time for white men to stand up for their right to smack a bitch.

So to recap: growing up in a family where you and your mother are regularly abused: not problem for children and families. Certainly better than permitting women to flee for their safety and that of their children, and just to hammer that point home, let's make sure they can't get public benefits either. Living in a world where sex for pleasure exists, at all, on the other hand? Why won't anyone think of the children???!

Seriously, fuck these guys.

valthemus March 15, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Finally, the Republican strategy is becoming clear: They're going to spend winter, spring and summer bitchslapping America, and then, come fall, they're going to be all contrite and like, "C'mon! You know I love you, baby!" and beg us to take them back and we will because, you know, they've changed and they really love us and they're so good-looking and who else is going to be your "plus one" for that December wedding? And like someone your age could do better, puh-leeze! Do you want to grow old alone? Do you?!?

Egad! Those clever, clever Republicans!

Jerri March 15, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Jesus tap-dancing Christ!!

I love all these women like Phylis who think that putting down women who, I don't know, don't want to be stalked, beaten and murdered (so selfish!) are childish, irresponsible, discredits to the gender.

News flash, Phil. Just because you put us down to get on the good side of god-fearin' republicans, just because you're (in your own prim, psychotic way) "one of the guys," does not mean those dickheads you associate with think you're equal to them. They might think you're "one of the good ones," but that and a buck two-eighty doesn't mean much. I'm sorry, doesn't mean much Toots.

Chet Kincaid March 15, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Of course Phyllis knows she isn't equal, that is what she has been trying to tell you!!

Jerri March 15, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Damn my thick, womanly skull!

Allmighty_Manos March 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

The GOP's substitute language just offers women advice on how not to burn pot roasts and avoiding harassing their man about their whereabouts night after night.

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Or looking at him wrong. We used to get women coming in with horror stories about how some guy had punched their lights out for "acting like they were gonna get a beating." Apparently, it caused those poor, poor men to get all stressed out and deliver the expected beating, you know, just to make sure the old lady had something to bitch about.

mavenmaven March 15, 2012 at 1:16 pm

That line about promoting divorce, is the scariest thing anyone has ever said, in other words, a woman getting beaten and abused should care more about about staying married than her own life (better her husband be a widower than divorced, apparently).

Yeah, because, you know, destruction of the FAMBLY = downfall of society/premarital/extramarital sexxxytime/HOMOsexuality/feticide/war/godlessness and who the FUCK knows what-all else.

Guppy March 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

If women weren't trapped in loveless or abusive marriages, there'd be fewer opportunities for cathartic, adulterous sex!

anniegetyerfun March 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Those feminist coffers are overflowing, too, aren't they?

Oh, is "coffer" not slang for "bra cup"? My bad!

anniegetyerfun March 15, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Amendments will include "Bitch, I done TOLD you not to bug me when I first get home" and "WHY AREN'T THE DISHES FUCKING DONE YET?"

chicken_thief March 15, 2012 at 1:25 pm

It is amazing the twists and turns of their pretzel logic just to avoid saying "we don't want it to apply to homos and brownz."

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:08 pm

"Destroying Teh Fambleeee" = "admitting teh gayitude EXISTS"

Exact same thing, really.

Pickle Monger March 15, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I totally read that headline wrong but then realised I wasn't so far off…
So basically, by refusing to reauthorize Violence Against Women Act, the Republicans have reauthorized Violence Against Women.

MissTaken March 15, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Gawd women, quit your bitching! At least you've gotten a man to marry you. Sure he may smack you around a bit, but at least you're not single!

AlaskaGrrl March 15, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Wait… why isn't the NRA weighing in on this? Got a problem with Old Man? Get a gun lady! problem solved! Yessiree. If everybody was packing heat, we'd all be sooooo much more civil to each other.

owhatever March 15, 2012 at 1:36 pm

What part of "No Girls in the Tree House" don't you sluts understand?

CivicHoliday March 15, 2012 at 1:42 pm

The GOP will propose an amendment that will require ER doctors to send all lesbian and immigrant women home with anti-skid shoes rather than with a police escort. You know, to help keeping them from falling down the stairs so much. So clumsy, these women.

OneYieldRegular March 15, 2012 at 1:47 pm

To be fair, Phyllis Schlafly was born only *four* years after women were allowed to vote in the U.S., so she has a lot of catching up to do.

walterhwhite March 15, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Like I said earlier, why isn't she dead yet?

Chet Kincaid March 15, 2012 at 1:54 pm

The Republicans have countered with the "We Frown On Domestic Violence In The Title Of This Bill But Wink At It By Not Funding Enforcement Act."

MadBrahms March 15, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Complete with "Just Tell Your Doctor You Fell Onto A Doorknob" provision.

real_dc_native March 15, 2012 at 1:55 pm

I get it! Pure Genus! The GOP is going after the self-loathing vote. Just imagine all the self hating women, gays, black people, and immigrants that will vote GOP!

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:36 pm

All twelve of them.

GreatChristiano March 15, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Darn it. I looked up the word "explificate" but can't find it.

Guess I'll keep looking…

gurukalehuru March 15, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Well, I'd rolled a big fat joint but it was kind of lopsided and had stems sticking through the paper, so we explificated it into a pipe.

GreatChristiano March 15, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Nice. That's prolly what I shoulda did done.

It worked wonders, right?

dinkybossetti March 16, 2012 at 12:07 pm

I bet you are awesome at Balderdash.

WhatTheHolyHeck March 15, 2012 at 2:16 pm

You could see how the Republicans could never vote for anything like that, because that would mean admitting gheys exist, and also Mexicans.

Oh they admit that gays and brown people exist; their issue with the legislation is that it implies that violence against them is somehow undesirable.

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Upfisted most mightily for sussing THAT out.

ChessieNefercat March 15, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Time to get Joe involved. If there is one thing that will get our VP fired up, it is this issue. The VAWA is his baby and I can't imagine that he would let this slide.

Edit: Well, I did. I emailed Joe and asked him to please do what he can.

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 9:38 pm

You STEED! Be sure to let us know what hoppen. Stopping domestic violence has always been an important part of my own p'litical agenda, and right now me likey you many upfisties.

ChessieNefercat March 15, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I have an old copy of this poster: http://www.csswashtenaw.org/ada/resources/communi

The long list of excuses that make up the poster are handily printed in larger type under the picture of the poster.

ttommyunger March 15, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Is hurling chunks considered violence? Cause, that's about all Phyllis and this other cunt in the pix would get out of me.

NYNYNYjr March 15, 2012 at 3:07 pm

They got tricked into authorizing this the last time. I mean, Violence Against Women Act sounds good, but after reading the the thing it's like it should really be called the Protect Women from Violence Act.

God gave man dominion over the beasts of the land and women- Genesis 3:33

commiegirl March 15, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Guys.

Gopherit March 15, 2012 at 4:30 pm

After reading Schafly's comments, a bald eagle cried a perfect tear.

DahBoner March 15, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Mexicans don't exist.

In certain neighborhoods. In Wisconsin.

CANT SWIM THAT FAR NORTH

FROTHY March 15, 2012 at 8:51 pm

You BITCH! You fucking BITCH! See what you made me do? Huh? See what you made me do? I didn't WANT to do it, but you just hadda go be a goddamn fucking BITCH, din'tcha, and push my buttons? Maybe NOW you'll understand that you need to keep your fucking BITCH mouth shut unless you're sucking my dick.

fuflans March 15, 2012 at 10:26 pm

There once was a fellow named Rush
Whose gray cells had turned into mush.
How could he love Dubya
While also, lord lubya,
Be across-the-board so anti-bush?
