In 1990 Republican Clayton “Claytie” Williams of Texas made a joke involving rape by comparing it to the weather:
As long as it’s inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it.
It was distasteful when it was said and people expressed as much when he was defeated in his bid to become Governor of Texas. The words came back to life in 2008 when Williams hosted an event for John McCain. The left, well known for selective outrage, wondered if McCain would return campaign donations associated with Williams. The association game the left played had already forced McCain to cancel his attendance at a fundraiser held at Williams’ home.
Game? The left was so worried about associations that it jumped all over McCain for something that Williams said nearly two decades earlier while ignoring or defending the Obama associations with Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and a long list of other anti American radicals. Associations only matter when they are the ones Republicans have. Williams told an awful and insensitive joke, Ayers blew up the Pentagon and murdered people. McCain’s association with Williams is the one that garnered opposition from the left.
Even though the joke by Williams was distasteful he only expressed the feelings of liberals when it comes to people protecting themselves.
In Washington, DC the elected officials were discussing people exercising their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. The politicians in DC feel that carrying a weapon to protect one’s self only escalates a situation and that the best thing people can do is give criminals what they want and though you might get injured you will heal and your stuff can be replaced.
In other words, they think that if it is inevitable you might as well enjoy it.
I am obviously not a woman but I think that any woman who is faced with being raped should do what every person faced with crime should do. FIGHT. I would rather die fighting for what is right and what belongs to me than to live as a coward who gave in to criminals but this is what liberal politicians want us to do. They are so entrenched in a victim mentality they want us all to be victims.
I am not wired that way and neither are the people I know.
Claytie Williams was wrong on several levels when he made his insensitive remark in 1990.
If the weather is inevitable you prepare for it. If it is going to be hot and sunny you get sunscreen, if it is going to be cold you get a coat and if it is going to rain you carry an umbrella. In other words, you make sure you are prepared for the challenge presented.
The same applies to rape or any other crime. If you are able to exercise your Constitutional right then you have the ability, or you are prepared, in case someone tries to make you a crime victim. You might hope it does not rain but you carry an umbrella just in case. You pray never to be a crime victim but you carry a gun just in case.
But to a liberal it somehow makes more sense for a woman to be found bound, gagged, throat slit, and raped than for her to be explaining to the police how the dead criminal got a bunch of bullet holes in him.
Maybe if we are not allowed to carry a gun and become a crime victim we should be allowed to exact revenge on the politician who felt it was better for us to be harmed than to defend ourselves.
Better yet. what say we forbid any politician who thinks this way from buying a gun or obtaining a permit to carry one and we remove that politician’s protective detail. We can include Obama and we can remove the police at the Capitol who screen people entering the building.
I mean, wouldn’t it be better if these politicians just surrendered to any criminal rather than drawing a weapon or having the police draw weapons?
That might escalate the situation.
This is one of the many reasons liberalism/progressivism is a mental disorder.
Never surrender, never submit.

National Public Radio (NPR) is funded by donations and US taxpayer dollars and it is supposed to provide unbiased reporting. The reality is that NPR is a partisan leftwing organization that serves as a mouthpiece for the Democrat party.
Juan Williams was an employee at NPR and he also appeared as a guest on a number of shows on FOX News. I rarely agreed with his point of view but I always found him to be thoughtful and well versed in politics. Sometimes his reasoning changed my mind on a topic and other times I thought his views clearly wrong but I always knew that his views were thoughtful and based in reality.
NPR was not happy that Williams appeared on FOX. They did not like the NPR being associated with a conservative network and they were out to get him.
Make no mistake, NPR has no problem with left wing liberal/progressive types and is more than happy to be associated with them. George Soros is providing money for NPR to hire 100 political reporters and you can bet that they will all be left wing partisans, contrary to what a network funded with taxpayer money should be.
Recently, Bill O’Reilly was on The View and he got into a tiff because he said Muslims attacked us on 9/11 (which is as true as saying the Japanese attacked us in WWII). Williams was a guest on O’Reilly’s show and made a statement that provided NPR what it needed to fire him.
Williams responded: “Look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
Williams also warned O’Reilly against blaming all Muslims for “extremists,” saying Christians shouldn’t be blamed for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Williams did not stay on the plantation and spit out the left wing mantra so NPR ended his contract.
I can’t imagine Williams would have been fired if he had said that he worries when he gets on a plane and sees military guys because Tim McVeigh was in the military or if he said that he worries when he sees people dressed in Christian garb because they kill abortion doctors.
He might have been fired for that but I seriously doubt it.
He was fired because he said something about a group of people who have claimed the mantle of victimhood, a designation the left is more than happy to promote.
It is unacceptable to say such things especially if you are from the liberal plantation because liberals do not tolerate any point of view that does not agree with them. One only needs to look at the NAALCP political report about the racist TEA Party to see that if one does not agree with the left then that person must be a racist (homophobe, Islamophobe, etc). Much like the NPR, the NAALCP is full of left wing people who are more into politics than doing what they were intended to do (that report is designed to have an affect on the upcoming election and serves NO other purpose).
Williams is part of that liberal establishment and he was shut down quickly because he went to an organization that presents points of view from both sides of the political aisle but is the demon of the left. George Soros is spending millions of dollars to shut down FOX and anyone associated with it. His money to NPR was seed money to rid the organization of those who strayed from the plantation and to hire partisan liberal reporters.
Williams found out the hard way how tolerant the left is.
Maybe now he will wise up and become conservative where a diversity of opinions is welcome.
Just look at the comments of the NPR article. A number of people say they did not agree with Williams but appreciated his point of view. Those people are not the liberals though there are a few libs who stray from the plantation long enough to commend him.
This episode is a warning shot from Soros and the rest of the people trying to ruin this country. The message is loud and clear, stray from the herd and you will be taken out.
Soros is into extinguishing people who do not toe the liberal, new world order line. Look at how he is going after Glenn Beck…
As a young man George Soros helped the Nazis and now he is helping the Socialists. He is an evil man and the sooner he meets his father, Satan, the better.
Never surrender, never submit.
