Lincoln University President Robert J. Jennings is defending some shocking remarks in which he seemed to accuse females on campus for making false rape claims. He now says those comments were taken out of context.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports, the YouTube video is an excerpt from a speech that Robert Jennings gave to Lincoln’s annual All Women’s Convocation in September.

Jennings said “Men treat you, treat women, the way women allow us to treat them.” “When it comes time to make that final decision, we’re going to go down the hall and marry that girl with the long dress on.”

“And let me tell you why I know I’m right about it. I’m right about it because we had on this campus last semester, three cases of young women, who after having done whatever they did with the young men, and then it didn’t turn out the way they wanted it to turn out, guess what they did? They then went to Public Safety and said, ‘He raped me,’” Jennings said.

“So then we have an investigation. We have to start pulling back the layers and asking all kinds of questions.”

Robert Jennings told the Inquirer that the four-minute snippet posted on YouTube was not representative of the 26 minute speech. He insisted,
“No one would ever discourage a young woman on this campus from reporting a sexual assault. In fact, I emphasize to them how serious that allegation is and that the university takes it very seriously and so does the federal government and so does the court.”

Mike Huckabee: Men Like to Hunt Together, Women Like to Go to Bathroom Together

I am convinced that some Republicans just can’t help themselves when it comes to women-bashing and to their detriment. Former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is quoted by Kathie Obradovich, a political columnist at The Des Moines Register saying that “men like to hunt and fish together, women like to use the bathroom together.” Huckabee reportedly made the comments at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition fundraiser in Waukee.

He claimed he’s “not homophobic but one-man/one-woman marriage is being “on the right side of the Bible.”

The Republican Party’s attack on women continue with former presidential candidate and Fox News host Mike Huckabee making a really offensive comment.  The former Arkansas governor says Democrats tell women “they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of government.”

Mike Huckabee also said, “Women I know are mart, educated, intelligent, capable of doing anything that anybody else can do.” “Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That’s not a war on them, that’s a war for them.”

Virginia State Senator Richard Black Says Spousal Rape Should be Legal

Virginia State Senator Richard Black Says Spousal Rape Should be Legal (Attribution Unknown)

The Republican Party’s war on women continues. Virginia state Sen. Richard Black believes spousal rape  should be legal, the Daily Beast reports. Yes, you read right, spousal rape should be legal. Here’s more from Molly Redden at Mother Jones:

[I]n a congressional district in Northern Virginia, one of the state’s main instigators of culture warfare, state Sen. Richard H. “Dick” Black, is running in the Republican primary to replace longtime GOP moderate Rep. Frank Wolf. And he’s guaranteed to ignite wedge-issue passion. Exhibit A: As a state legislator, Black opposed making spousal rape a crime, citing the impossibility of convicting a husband accused of raping his wife “when they’re living together, sleeping in the same bed, she’s in a nightie, and so forth.”

Black has referred to emergency contraception, which does not cause abortions, as “baby pesticide.” Black also fought to block a statue of Abraham Lincoln at a former Confederate site in Richmond. He wasn’t sure, he explained at the time, that statues of Lincoln belonged in Virginia. He has argued that abortion is a worse evil than slavery. And once, to demonstrate why libraries should block pornography on their computers, Black invited a TV reporter to film him using a library terminal to watch violent rape porn.

In 1998, Black was elected a delegate to the Virginia House. He sparked multiple battles over social issues until he was voted out of office in 2005. But Black wasn’t done. In 2011, after moving several times around Northern Virginia in search of a friendly district, Black was voted back into the Legislature, this time to the state Senate.

In the GOP nomination fight to replace Wolf, Black, who commands substantial support among the conservative grassroots, would have a strong chance to beat his moderate opponents if the party chooses to nominate candidates through a convention, rather than a primary. (Tea partiers and social conservatives have dominated Virginia Republicans’ nominating contests in recent years.) The party will decide between the two on January 23. Republicans have held the seat Black is seeking for 14 years, but the congressional district voted for Mitt Romney by only a slim margin in 2012.

New Texas Voter Identification Laws Could Suppress Women’s Votes

More voter suppression: New Texas voter identification laws could be really meant to suppress women’s votes. The law states that a person’s identification must match the current name. That means women who take their husband’s name will be required to get additional documentation before they can vote.

As Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has repeatedly said, “Almost every single person either has a valid photo ID … or it is very easy to get one.” What they don’t say, however, is that the people who don’t are largely married women who have taken their husband’s name.

In fact, only 66% of women have an ID that reflects their current name. If any voter is using name different than what appears on their birth certificate, the voter is required to show proof of name change by providing an original or certified copy of their marriage license, divorce decree, or court ordered name change. Photocopies aren’t accepted. Source: Policy Mic

Now that Texas is changing to purple and possibly blue, the Republicans will try their darnedest to keep it red. It’s clear that diversity isn’t on their side, but they will cheat to keep winning.

Rev. Al Sharpton at March on Washington: Rosa Parks Was No Bitch, Fannie Lou Hamer Was No Ho’

Rev. Al Sharpton at March on Washington: Rosa Parks Was No Bitch, Fannie Lou Hamer Was No Ho’

Rev. Al Sharpton is the keynote speaker at the rally during the March on Washington. He had a special message for those entertainers who like to denigrate women, including black women, saying, “Rosa Parks was no bitch and Fannie Lou Hamer was no ho.” He said we are going to march to get voting rights. #mlkdream50, #marchonwashington #alsharpton

Rev. Sharpton also said we redeposited check Dr. King talked about but it bounced again but this time, because it was marked stop payment. They bailed out banks and made life easy for the upper class, but nothing for the middle class. Sharpton also hit out against those Republicans who engaging in voter suppression via strict voter identification laws on the false premise of voter fraud being rampant. He said “we had ID when we voted for Johnson, for Nixon, for Carter, why do we need a new ID to vote for Obama?”

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) who also spoke at the March on Washington in 1963, said “I’m not going to stand by and let the Supreme Court take the right right to vote away.”

Think Progress: You cannot stand by. You cannot sit down. You have to stand up, speak up, speak out and get in the way. Make some noise. The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It’s the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democratic society and we’ve got to use it. Back in 1963 we didn’t have a cellular telephone, iPad, iPod, but we used what we had to bring about a non-violent revolution. And I said to all of the young people, you must get out there and push and pull and make America what America should be for all of us. We must say to the Congress, ‘Fix the Voting Rights Act.’

NC Legislators Austin Allran, Warren Daniel Healthy Marriage Act Proposes Rigorous Divorce Regulations

NC Legislators Austin Allran, Warren Daniel Healthy Marriage Act Proposes Rigorous Divorce Regulations

Here we go again, Republicans trying to throw their weight around and force their views on others — Sen. Austin Allran (R-Hickory), the primary sponsor of the Healthy Marriage Act, and Sen. Warren Daniel (R-Morganton), are trying to keep people in bad situations, because of their self-righteousness. The pair want to make it harder for estranged couples to get a divorce by forcing them to wait longer and go to counseling. Um, let’s see how many shoot their ‘estranged spouses’ rather than waiting. There’s a lot going on in North Carolina these days, where the Republicans are concerned. In addition to the Healthy Marriage Act proposal, they are also trying to curb early voting. Yeah, that would be voter suppression.

The Healthy Marriage Act would extend to two years the current one-year waiting period in order for a divorce to be finalized. During that time, the couple would have to complete courses on improving their communications skills and conflict resolution.

If the couple has children, they would have to take at least a four-hour class on the impact of divorce on children.

Separated couples could resume living together during the two-year waiting period, under the bill. Either the husband or the wife would have to have lived in North Carolina for six months before filing for divorce.
It would also strike from the current law a provision that says “isolated incidents of sexual intercourse” don’t count against the one-year waiting period. It’s not clear if that means an occasional fling with your estranged partner does count against you under the proposed law. Source

I guess they didn’t hear about retired trooper Mark Miscavish gunning down his estranged wife, Tracie Miscavish, at a County Market supermarket in Philipsburg, Pa., days after she filed for divorce.  He was charged with assault after beating his wife in an earlier incident. So, had this law being proposed by these two Republicans been in place in Philipsburg, Tracie Miscavish would have been dead the moment she mentioned the word divorce.

Once again, Republicans are trying to run the lives of women in this country through this ridiculous piece of legislation, the Healthy Marriage Act. Like Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner says to the GOP, “get out of my panties.”  The sanctity of marriage, in their view, is more important than a woman or man remaining in an abusive situation that could quite possibly end in murder-suicide. It’s mindboggling that forcing a woman to stay in a failed and toxic relationship is more important than supporting gun control legislation. This is further proof that the Republican Party isn’t listening to Americans.

Just as I said, the bill doesn’t address domestic violence situations. In fact, it would force a battered wife to stay in the marriage for two more years. If that’s not a recipe for a murder-suicide, then I don’t know what else is. It’s shameful that Rep. Warren Daniel could propose such a dangerous bill when he sits on the Domestic Violence Commission.

This unhealthy bill intrudes on a very personal decision. If you’re a battered spouse, a parent of an abused child or married to an alcoholic or drug addict, a communications skills course is useless. It could be dangerous to wait two years to extricate yourself from a hopeless situation.

Daniel should know about these issues: He sits on the state Domestic Violence Commission. And his home turf of Burke County isn’t exactly the divorce capital of North Carolina: 3.8 per 1,000 people, right on the state average. Sanderson’s district includes Carteret County, which has a divorce rate of 4.2. As for Allran, he represents the happily and unhappily married couples of Alexander and Catawba counties; their divorce rates—2 and 3.4—are below the national and state average. Source

Here’s the Healthy Marriage Act:

Zanesville OH Dr. Patrick Johnston: Abortions Worse Than Slavery For Black Americans

Zanesville OH Dr. Patrick Johnston: Abortions Worse Than Slavery For Black Americans (Photo credit: elycefeliz)

I came across an article written by Dr. Patrick Johnston in the Zanesville Times Recorder that makes the case that the effects of slavery wasn’t the worse thing for black Americans — single motherhood and abortions are. He states that there are “more black men in prison today than were enslaved in 1850.” Wow, so does that excuse the scourge of slavery? Um, if I were patient of Dr. Patrick Johnston I would think twice about someone making such a reckless correlation between a woman’s reproductive rights and being enslaved. There’s more:

Our government’s remedy, however, has been to prescribe more of the poison. Our government has legalized, legitimized, and subsidized adultery and fornication, making it more profitable to be a deadbeat dad than a committed father and husband. As the stunning movie “Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America” reveals, it was Margaret Sanger’s racism and fondness for eugenics that motivated her to set up government-funded Planned Parenthood birth control and abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods in this country. She considered immigrants and blacks to be “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning… human beings who should never have been born.” Planned Parenthood got $487.4 million in taxpayer funds in 2012. About 80 percent of Planned Parenthood offices are in minority neighborhoods.

That brings us to the most devastating statistic in the African-American community. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, black women account for 13 percent of the total U.S. female population but undergo more than one-third of all abortions. If those black babies had been allowed to be born, the black population would be 50 percent larger. Abortion is the leading cause of death in the African-American population. Source

Dr. Patrick Johnston, who has a family medical practice, is also the founder of the Muskingum County Association of Pro-Life Physicians. I don’t expect him to say otherwise, but it is reckless to suggest that slavery wasn’t as devastating to the black community and somehow abortions are. I wonder if he would feel the same way if his ancestors were shackled and treated as three-fifths of a person? What Dr. Patrick Johnston has attempted to do is used veiled racism to say black women are too stupid to make decisions on their bodies. The dumbing-down of America continues…..

Here’s another Republican trying to impose his views on abortion on women — Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said Tuesday when a woman gets pregnant during a rape, “it’s something God intended.” Wow, Richard Mourdock is giving rapists some self-worth. First Rep. Todd Akin with his comment that legitimate rape rarely leads to pregnancy because the woman’s body has mechanisms to shut it down. Um, right. This is problematic for the Romney campaign because it shows just how out of touch the GOP is with women’s rights. So much for helping Middle Eastern women get some rights.

Mourdock, who’s been locked in a tight race with Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly, was asked during the final minutes of a debate whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.

“I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happened,” Mourdock said. Source

Richard Mourdock is trying to ride whatever coattails he believes Mitt Romney has and the GOP presidential candidate appears in a new ad with him.
