Loserville's George Will Mocks Rape!

Another stupid old White guy who thinks a rise in college rape is the fault of the victims doing reckless things.

Longtime Washington Post and Loserville contributor George Will is under fire. Once again sticking his condescending mouth in business he has no right to be in. He and that jackass Richard Cohen have dragged the Washington Post into trouble one too many times.

Will was once a contributor to ABC News. But he was given his walking papers after he refused to travel to New York for taping of the problems.

Now if this picks up steam and people start to question should the Washington Post step in?

Do you believe that its time to retire Will and Cohen?

Anyway, Will has been totally wrong on the War in Iraq, the War in Afghanistan, and now the impact of rape in our American colleges and universities.

He would write a piece saying that government is injecting campus victimization. He wrote that campus victimization at college and universities are ubiquitous (“micro-aggressions,” often not discernible to the untutored eye, are everywhere), and that when they make victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate. And academia’s progressivism has rendered it intellectually defenseless now that progressivism’s achievement, the regulatory state, has decided it is academia’s turn to be broken to government’s saddle.

He believes that campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. “sexual assault” is victimization created by government.

I've said it one too many times: RAPE IS RAPE.

There is nothing funny or entertaining about it. It's not about victimization. It's about about a violation of your trust, your health and your safety. It's something that affects women, men, children, animals and those with disabilities.

Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that person's consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or with a person who is incapable of valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, or below the legal age of consent.

Victims of rape can be severely traumatized; in addition to psychological harm resulting from the act, rape may cause physical injury, or have additional effects on the victim, such as acquiring of a sexually transmitted infection or becoming pregnant. Furthermore, following a rape, a victim may face violence or threats of thereof from the rapist, and, in some cultures, from the victim's own family and relatives.

There are several types of rape, generally categorized by reference to the situation in which it occurs, the sex or characteristics of the victim, and/or the sex or characteristics of the perpetrator. Different types of rape include date rape, gang rape, marital rape, incestual rape, child sexual abuse, prison rape, acquaintance rape, war rape and statutory rape.

"Victim blaming" is holding the victim of a crime to be in whole or in part responsible for the crime.

Rape is a Class 1 Felony in most states. It carries a punishment that could land you in the iron college for life.

In some countries, you could lose your life if you're convicted of rape. And yes, the American justice system has the death penalty for rape in some states.

The evil that right wing conservative men say and do! Being an apologist for rape and rapists everywhere. Is this what the conservative/right wing movement is coming to? I afraid so, because every day, some right-winger/tea party/Republican official say or do things that offends various racial, gender, class, ethnic/cultural, religious, and regional groups.

The Washington Post needs to fire George Will before he say something stupid and mean- spirited. Apparently, they won't because they still have Richard Cohen on the company's payroll. They don't have the guts to clean up their own house of bigotry. Or did I forget that the owner of WAPO, Lally Wentworth, have racist views as well? What are your thoughts?
