National Review columnist A.J. Delgado, whose awful employer recently hired a certain well-known serial plagiarist, told Sean Hannity’s audience that Ray Rice’s wife had actually “knocked herself out” when she hit her head on elevator railing after the vicious left hook her husband delivered. Obviously, according to Delgado, the now-former Ravens running back is now the “bigger victim.”
Hannity told Delgado that he felt sickened when he first saw the video of Rice punching his then-fiance shortly before the happy couple was married.
“We know how domestic violence abuse victims react sometimes,” Hannity said. “And they have a hard time getting away from the people that are victimizing them and abusing them.”
Delgado pointed out that Janay Rice has stated publicly that she does not consider herself a victim of domestic violence — something that is not exactly uncommon among victims — and added that, “some might even say, watching that video, Ray Rice is the bigger victim of domestic violence here.” She claimed that liberals are “patronizing” Ray rice’s not-victim by calling her a victim.
“We know the truth, though, because we’ve got the video tape,” Hannity told his guest. “But you said he’s a victim because why? Because she slapped him and spit on him?”
“He absolutely is,” Delgado replied. “And some might say I’m defending Ray Rice here. Maybe I am, but if you watch the video, the video actually makes him look better than he did before. She repeatedly attacked him. He’s a victim — flat-out fact — of domestic violence. Only after she’s hit him several times and spit on him does he finally hit back.”
She added, “And she happens because of that blow to knock herself out on the railing. That was an unintended consequence, I’m sure.”
“I thought we live in this gender-neutral society,” Delgado continued. “Liberals are always telling us men and women are exactly the same, they should not be treated any differently. But when it comes to domestic violence or rape accusations, the woman is automatically the wallflower, automatically the victim. I would love to have a liberal explain that to me.”
Recently, the FOX News crowd claimed that the lesson to be learned from the ‘Rice situation’ is for him to “take the stairs” because there are cameras in elevators — and they are not alone in their misogynistic ideals. A local ESPN host was shocked when a caller told him that hitting a woman is perfectly acceptable “if she backtalks you.”
Unfortunately, our nation has not reached the point that it is universally recognized that domestic violence is not OK — and that the old “take her to the courthouse steps and beat her with a switch” mentality of yesteryear is entirely unacceptable in today’s society.
