Tea Party Nation president Judson Philips, the mastermind behind the crafty plan to use the Constitution to subvert the 2012 election (though it was unconstitutional), who has apparently exhausted the comparison of Obamacare to Nazi Germany and now thinks it’s time to liken providing health insurance to thousands of uninsured Americans with…rape.
Phillips sent out an article written by Darwin Rockantansky via email to Tea Party Nation members. The article begins by reflecting on “Law & Order: SVU” villains who claim that their victims “enjoy” rape. He then explains that this is an example of Affordable Care Act proponents defending the ACA to their relatives at Thanksgiving dinner. “Their message is truly quite simple,” he writes; “Lie back and quit fighting and eventually you will enjoy the experience.”
“But I will encourage you to think about your own families and extended families and decide for yourself if there is a point at which this rape experience could possibly become enjoyable; rape of our free will, rape of our religious convictions, rape of free markets, rape of our Constitution, a brutal rape of the American Dream and personal freedoms.”
Rockantansky claims that on the TV program Law and Order: SVU, accused rapists often try to rationalize their actions by imagining that their victims were asking for it, were being seductive or enjoyed the experience.
“At what point does rape become a pleasurable experience for the victim? And whom among us are not revolted and angered by such nonsense? And whom among us are willing to believe that if we ‘Just lay back and don’t fight it you will inevitably enjoy it’? And the “IT” that I am referring to here is ‘Obamacare.’”
Apparently, Darwin Rockantansky is constantly thinking of rape and is also a huge fan of Law and Order:SVU. If only conservatives would direct their concerns towards preventing actual rapes to women like they express their deepest feelings for rape against guns or capitalism, then perhaps people like him would quit comparing legislation they do not like to such an awful and heinous act.
