Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Akin breakin heart edition

Well, so much for taking this week off – let’s dive in before I change my mind.

Akin Says He Has No Plans to Quit Missouri Senate Race

Akin said he has no plans to withdraw.

“I don’t know that I’m
the only person in public office who’s suffered from foot-in-mouth
disease here, and this was a very, very serious error. On the other
hand, there are so many good people in Missouri who nominated me, and
they understood my heart,” Akin said.

Akin said no Republicans have called him and asked him to withdraw from the race.

“No
one has called me and said, ‘Todd, I think you should drop out,'” Akin
said. “No one has said that. But I gather people are saying that in the
media, but they didn’t specifically call me and tell me that.”

****************

Anybody know his number?

Funny, Drudge currently has a story up that he just announced he’s dropping out? Which story is more recent?

Matt Drudge hasn’t gotten anything right since 1998 – are you still hanging out there?

To: Blackyce

What he meant was that fewer than one-tenth of one percent of abortions are the result of rape, but that’s not what he said.

This is exactly why Claire McCaskill ran “anti-Akin” ads in the
Republican primary dog-whistling Democrats to cross over and vote for
him.

Unfortunately for Claire he blew up sooner and more thoroughly than she had planned.

Akin will be gone and Brunner will be in his place by next weekend.

Soros is probably pouring millions into his campaign right now to keep the imbecile in the race.

Soros has his minions donating to make it appear he has all this conservative support.

And FWIW, I just listened to him on Hannity. The guy is dumb as a
rock. “I am conservative. We need to get rid of Claire McCaskill. I am
conservative. We need to beat Claire McCaskill. Rinse repeat.

I don’t give a damn that this guy said something politically
incorrect.
No, he said something shit-stupid.
If conservatives are not only willing to throw him under the
bus, but seem to take a certain amount of glee in doing it, then we are
already lost. Leftist thinking has won out.
Tellit to Limbaugh.

Leftists never apologize,
never give in, and they never tear down their own people in power no
matter how many mistakes they make. That is why they are winning.
Meanwhile, every time some Republican says “macaca”, “conservatives” are
all too eager to tear him down and cede the win to the leftists.
That’s because “macaca” is a racist slur.

Seems to me that there are quite a few conservatives, including
Freepers, with no heart at all. Resisting the tyranny of political
correctness is hard, and they are just looking for an excuse to enter
the warm embrace of submission. Oh, a Republican said something that the
media can misconstrue?

Misconstrue??
That’s never happened before! Let’s take this
opportunity to be every bit as petty and irrational as the lefties so
that we can look around at our leftist masters and say “See? I’m cool
too!”

How stupid is this man? How deeply damaged is his candidacy?

Here’s a test you can run: Try saying the same kind of thing to your
wife, daughter or girlfriend. See how long it takes you to get out of
the mess you just created. Oh, and good luck to you if you run the test.

And this has nothing to do with what is true or not. Akin is
permanently etched into the female memory as something to be avoided.

Also, he will become the Tom Foley of this election cycle, if he
continues. He will do damage far beyond the borders of Missouri.

What he said was flat out stupid, not even misconstrued, it was wrong, period.

He scored a perfect 10 from the lower platform, and dove HIMSELF under that bus.

This thing will fester until the elections, nothing good will come of this if he stays in the race.

Thank you! When I originally read the
complaint against Akin, I kept reading to find the “horror” or it all,
and then realized it wasn’t much of anything. The left took it and ran
with it (they don’t need much), and the right helped them carry the
ball. Pathetic! It’s never easy to stand up for the unborn (people
stumble with words), because so many have killed their own or know
someone close who did.

“Is there any fight back at all?”

Who are we supposed to be fighting? Nobody did anything to Todd Akin.
He said something stupid that the left is going to exploit in national
and local Missouri elections. There’s nothing to fight other than bad
press. Instead of focusing on a national political campaign we’re
supposed to spend money treating self inflected wounds, just because
he’s one of ours? I don’t care about Todd Akin’s political career in the
abstract. I care about a conservative actually winning that seat.

How can you defend a guy that can’t even defend himself? he went
on that hardcore angry liberal Sean Hannity’s radio show and still
couldn’t explain himself, stumbling and mumbling through a half-arsed
explanation.

It’s wise to pick and choose your fights, the GOP needs to fight the
Democrats on the economy, on Medicare and several other issues, but
deciding to fight them on rape and the “legitimate” definition of it is
not a winner, or has it ever been.

The best thing they can do is cut bait and walk away, have this guy dropout and speak no more of his insanity.

His statement is TRUE!!!!!

I read about this years ago in Francis Shaeffer’s book HOW SHOULD WE
THEN LIVE? – The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture.

As I recall, it quotes medical studies done on women who were raped
in Nazi prison camps. The human body rejects impregnation in most cases.
He’s being pilloried, for telling the truth and someone needs to come
to his defense!

To: Humidston

Yes, go fight that good fight and watch Obama clean up with even
more electoral votes than he did the last time around. Recent studies
identify that women have a 5% chance of getting pregnant through rape
and it is estimated that there’s about 30,000 women a year who end up
pregnant as a result of rape.

If you want to have that conversation and watch the media trot out
woman after woman who ended up pregnant after being raped and denounce
Akin and the Republicans as a whole, go ahead and have that
conversation, just be careful what you wish for.

After all, it only makes sense that instead of discussing the
economy, we should have a full-fledged debate about what “legitimate”
rape is and the inner-workings of a woman’s reproductive organs.

Here it comes, folks – the “conservative” ideology in a (heh) nutshell:

To: Republican Wildcat
It was not “politically incorrect” – it was outrageous and nonsensical.

Which part, exactly? Is it the “legitimate rape” part? If it is,
let me be the first to inform you that there are a whole lot of BS rape
accusations out there.There are plenty of women who lie about rape –
whether because they got caught cheating, or they are trying to
blackmail, or whatever twisted reason they have.

“And I swear I nver touched her. She put those roofies in her own drink!”

A woman who consents to
have sex with a man, then decides the next day that she regrets it and
charges him with rape, is not a victim of “legitimate rape”. If you are
going to argue that no false rape claims ever occur because women never
lie about rape, then you are just a slave to political correctness.
period.

Maybe it’s the “women are less likely to get pregnant via
legitimate rape” thing, eh? Yet, I’ve seen sprinkled throughout all of
these threads offerings of evidence to suggest that there may be truth
to that claim.

In either case, explain to me which part of Akin’s statement was “nonsensical”.

All of it.
There you have it, gentle readers – those wimmens are all lying sluts, and rape is just their seeing “fr_freak” in the cold cruel light of morning, and realizing they did something they can never live with.
Clear enough for everyone? This is the heart of the right-wing. Women are chattel, and morally inferior to the Master Gender.
Whew,

To: GOP_Party_Animal
Certainly, it is politically unwise for this guy to be having this
conversation after the beating he’s been receiving over his earlier
comments. First of all, these women sound like idiots, and no politician
should be caught having a sensitive conversation with idiots. Other
than that, I actually kind of wish that more politicians actually had
convictions AND stuck by them and were not afraid to speak TRUTH.

Think of it this way: 50 years ago, anyone saying things that
these women are saying would have been laughed at as simple-minded
fools,

50 years ago, people were sayng that black citizens shouldn’t be voting.

and what Akin is saying would have been seen as simple common
sense. Nowadays, it is exactly the reverse, and that is precisely
because everybody is scared to go against the politically correct
nonsense. If people would stop being scared of saying truthful things,
we wouldn’t have to go through this pain every time someone speaks the
truth.

That said, yeah, I recognize that the media will crucify Akin for
this. My question is WHY ARE CONSERVATIVES HELPING THEM DO IT?

  1. Andrew Abshier says:

    I’m wondering if fr_freak is the nom de plume of my roommate’s friend. Said friend is loudmouthed, boorish, a bully, misogynistic, homophobic, and racist. and what fr_freak wrote sounds exactly like something he would say, except he would throw in some nasty coments about the “N****rs” multiple times. If it were my house, I would have thrown him out on his ear, even with my broken leg. Unfortunately this is how too many men think.

  2. Snarki, child of Loki says:

    “Soros is probably pouring millions into his campaign right now to keep the imbecile in the race.”
    DRAT! The freepers have caught onto our cunning plan!
    If the freeperati figure out that that they can counter Soros with contributions to McCaskill’s campaign, our plot to control the Senate is DOOMED.

  3. Dorothy says:

    “The Virgin Mary was impreganated by God without her consent”??????
    Um…
    um…
    um…
    Wow. I can’t believe any of the Freepers let that slide.
    The entire reason Mary is venerated so highly in Christianity is BECAUSE SHE CONSENTED, YOU FUCKING IDIOT!
    Her most famous, most quoted, most turned-into-hymns statement is “Magnificat anima mea dominum”. “My soul magnifies the lord–let it be done to me as you have said.” (And if you believe the provenance of the Gospels, this story came from Mary herself.)
    That’s what made her special, Mr. Asswipe Akin. Sure, God could have raped anyone, but Mary was chosen because she said yes. (Did Gabriel go to thousands of other women first? Was Mary his first choice? The Bible doesn’t say.)
    But it explicitly says SHE WASN’T FUCKING RAPED. SHE explicitly said that.
    I can’t believe any “good Christian” would let their Divine Mother and archetype for all human females be reduced to a mindless uterus with no say in her fate. Well, yes, I could, with these assholes claiming to be “Christian.” I can’t believe this idiot a) thinks his God is a rapist and b) WILLINGLY WORSHIPS A RAPIST.
    (That was also used as one of the main distinguishing characteristics of early Christianity from other contemporary religions: our god asked to impregnate a mortal, and your gods are all rapists. Why would you worship rapists?)
    I hope the Marion societies hunt this asshat down and strangle them with their rosaries.

  5. armored goldfish says:

    “Leftists never apologize, never give in, and they never tear down their own people in power no matter how many mistakes they make.”
    I don’t think he knows many leftists, of any kind. Maybe it is selection bias, but the liberals/progressives/etc I know argue back and forth about this person and that person running for office or writing an article.
    Or is it that projection I hear so much about?

  6. Dorothy says:

    Well, she was already betrothed to Joseph, so I don’t think she was legally a minor.
    Still can’t wrap my brain around a guy a) thinking his god is a rapist, b)not having any moral issues with that, and c) his god-fearing constituents not even blinking at that statement.
    It explains so much about the right-wing id, doesn’t it?

  7. MarcD says:

    “…and no politician should be caught having a sensitive conversation with idiots.”
    So there truly is no hope for Congress, if interaction with idiots is to be avoided.

  8. MapleStreet says:

    Armored Goldfish, don’t the right criticize Obama for “apologizing” for America?
    Of course, the stated action was taken out of context, et, etc,. But for the freepers to say leftists don’t apologize, the Obama is Right Wing??????
    Not to mention how the Dems have caved in Congresss.

  9. MapleStreet says:

    Locally, I haven’t noticed any of the Akin signs disappear. The lady running for representative in the next district over has announced that she may disagree with him on that, but will be voting for him.

  10. MapleStreet says:

    As a current House member, Akin is on the science committee.
    I might could cut him some slack that the “legitimate” was bad wording done under pressure. At the same time, it leads down the road that if a pregnancy results, then it wasn’t rape. Leading to the good ole boy sayings such as the woman really wanted it; she enjoyed it; no doesn’t really mean no. As such, it seems to paint an interesting picture of what goes through his mind on a wide range of issues such as women’s healthcare and sexual assault.
    But the contrived explanation of some sort of magical self-imposed abortion also shows both that his grasp of basic science is below 3rd grade level and that he proudly forms policies on the basis of his ignorance. (The closest I can think of are some animals that can delay implantation).
    The statement on nazi death camps is rather ridiculous. Even if evidence of this could be found, even a knee jerk reaction recognizes that the folks in the camps were severely malnourished and subject to extreme conditions. Not to mention that the “science” applied in such camps was subject to extreme doctrinal bias, lack of review, experiments invented without rigor of thought, covert interference by other inmates who were trying to save the lives of the subjects/victims, etc. Data are unuseable. And I haven’t even gotten to the moral aspects of using any data (assuming reliable data may be found).
    And Mary raped??????? See Dorothy above. As far as age, folks try to extrapolate from the scant amount that is known to make conclusions regarding a lot of things. It wasn’t too long ago in the USA when folks married much younger than today.

  11. The Bobs says:

    Dorothy,
    It was statutory rape by God, Mary was only 13, wasn’t she?
