This tweet just in from Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin’s spokesman. Apparently his campaign is doubling down on the calling-your-opponent-who-just-happens-to-be-a-woman-and-a-sitting-United-States-senator-a-dog thing.
Congressional Quarterly reporter Emily Ethridge offers firsthand knowledge of anti-choice Rep. Steve King’s (R-Iowa) ignorance on women’s health. This comes after King said earlier this morning that he’d never heard of a girl getting pregnant from statutory rape or incest, which was a roundabout way of defending Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), who last weekend asserted that women who are the victims of “legitimate rape” have bodily defenses to avoid pregnancy.
It’s par for the course for conservatives, including Akin, King, and Paul Ryan, who have long sought to redefine “rape.”
Comrade Liu Hulan (1932-1947) was an activist in her native village of Yunzhouxi, Shanxi Province. She became a member of the Communist Party of China in 1946.
As an organizer, she had set up a chapter of the Women’s Federation, and in her capacity as secretary of that chapter, she had been actively involved in moblizing her fellow villagers to support the CCP in the civil war. When Nationalist troops surrounded the village in 1947 and attempted to cart off the confiscated grain reserves from the public granary, she led the villagers in resistance. She was executed.
4 Israeli Defense Force soldiers “detaining” a Palestinian girl, while posing for a picture with their rifles pointed at her head. Fucking outrage.
Io in questa foto vedo una ragazzina in ginocchio bendata e quattro soldati nazisti che le puntano armi alla testa. E voi?
(ecco, giusto per far riflettere certi bempensanti)
If one throws a stone, the action constitutes a crime.
If one thousand stones are thrown, it becomes a political action.
If you burn a car, the action constitutes a crime.
If you burn hundreds of cars, it becomes a political action.
Protest is when I say that something does not sit well with me.
Opposition is when I do something to make sure that what I do not like does not happen again.
