Too heavy handed. I prefer to bully, harass, and intimidate young girls who attempt to go to school.

Don't want those girls getting any ideas.

I think my sense of Justice just finally gave way when I read that. Didn't even get mad.

Instead I just laughed.
 
2012-06-01 10:16:56 AM  
Wow, that's actually what he said.

How dare democrats kill a bill that creates legal avenues for anti-choicers to stop other people's abortions, in order to prevent a problem that doesn't exist.

Responded Becker campaign spokesman Barry Caro: I'd be fired - immediately and with cause - if I said stuff like this. Link

Both sides are equally bad.

These people disgust me... And it's not because of "ideological differences", either. These people are mean-spirited, closed-minded, ass backwards assholes. They want to drag this country back into the stone ages.

I have no problems with thoughtful, intelligent opinions even if I disagree with them strongly... But this (and the numerous other examples the GOP has provided in recent years) are nothing but ignorance and hatred.

Frankly, ignorance and hatred are all I've seen coming from the GOP recently. These people aren't "conservatives"... They're unhinged, radical regressivists.

I didn't even laugh. I was just like meh. I need outrage rehab or something.

Overzealous staffer, democrat plant, this election is about jobs anyway, does that about cover it?

The market would heal the disparity if we had more tax cuts and fewer regulations.

I don't know US law that well but I'm pretty sure that type of comment will actually get you arrested in Canada.

As one who opposes gender pay gap bills, I would like to say this nutjob's statement was evil and stupid.

/Employs thousands of women at 70% of manpay. No, actually no one does that in America.

Wangiss: ...Which is incredibly stupid.


It's an incitement to specific violence.

You can't just say, "well, I was speaking metaphorically when I yelled 'Fire!' in that crowded theater. I didn't mean there was an actual fire." That's bullsh*t.

American Taliban, at it again
 
2012-06-01 11:04:10 AM  
Wow. Thats just....wow.

This guy should resign, or be fired. And possibly arrested for assault.
 
2012-06-01 11:08:55 AM  
But don't call them domestic Taliban.

They don't want anything. That's the problem. They're like little kids who are bored and yelling at your for not amusing them. When you take a figure head away from authoritarians they flounder. That's why we're seeing now. Soon one of them is going to cross the line and we'll have to take real action to bring this sorry era of our discourse to a close. Most likely with violence and police action.
 
2012-06-01 11:09:29 AM  
What an asshole.

/y'all done lost your minds
 
2012-06-01 11:09:50 AM  
That sounds like it cross the line between protected political speech and illegal avocation of violence.
 
2012-06-01 11:10:07 AM  
He meant LSD, it makes the world sparkly and helps you have delusions. Maybe they'll think they got what they wanted if they take enough.
 
2012-06-01 11:10:48 AM  
He was talking about surveyor's acid
 
2012-06-01 11:11:39 AM  
The phrase "American Taliban" was supposed to be an exaggeration.
 
2012-06-01 11:11:56 AM  
Acid is way too intense. Maybe they should throw mushrooms . . .
 
2012-06-01 11:12:04 AM  
FFS, are you serious? The best way to attack/control women is through guilt and shame. Period. Guilt and shame. Nothing works better.

2012-06-01 11:12:20 AM  
I wouldn't advocate this at all, but his facebook wall is still open.

Just so you know.

2012-06-01 11:12:28 AM  
Isn't that LITERALLY how they keep women in line in some of those sandy, theocratic countries?

Probably not his intent, but there it is in black and I-didn't-know-that-stuff-actually-happens-white.

I fought for stars to be born
But they did nothing for me
I made a fortune from nothing
But now it is lost

I broke the back of a job
And now my work is done
As I stand back to admire it
I realize something's wrong

They beat him and they cut off his head
And put the film on the Internet
Millions of fools watched him die
I've lost my faith in this race

Because the poison pen is coming
And it is writing wicked words
The poison pen will end a nation
So much mightier than the sword
So much mightier than the sword
So much mightier than the sword
 
2012-06-01 11:13:22 AM  
What's his stance on honor killings? Stoneings?
 
2012-06-01 11:14:09 AM  
On behalf of my district, I apologize for replacing John Hall with this moron.

But you can speak metaphorically when you're defending that idiotic Canadian law. Because that's the only way you can defend it. Because it's stupid.
 
2012-06-01 11:14:15 AM  
OM MAGOODNESS this individual is such the one that is out of the touch. Listen these days it is the bath salts upon which people do the preference of and so if you are going to throw something for these women to occupy the times of themselves it should very much be bath salts.

Wangiss: A/Employs thousands of women at 70% of manpay. No, actually no one does that in America.


... perhaps because they think, despite evidence, that women only do 70% of the work? It's a naive view to claim that employers are exclusively motivated by a single box on a spreadsheet, with no other opinions, interests, or thoughts.

Worse than a direct call to mutilate people with acid? What do you consider worse?

Some examples please, that didn't lead to someone being fired or resigning.

Vacation Bible School: What's his stance on honor killings? Stoneings?


A quorum of 3/5 of the able-bodied men of the village have to be present.

/And no women but the harlots being stoned!
 
2012-06-01 11:16:28 AM  
Acid? It's lemon juice, essentially.
 
2012-06-01 11:16:28 AM  
Don't retreat...reflux!

/seriously though, wtf

I hope that Iranian newpapers publish this on their front page to show how barbaric Americans are. Wouldn't be the first time.

Let a grand jury decide. Arrest him for assault.

Was that in response to my post?

What will his defense be? I've never used Facebook and it's just an overzealous (literally) staffer? It's just an "expression" and I didn't know it had real world implications? This is a liberal MSM media hatchet witch hunt and I never did anything wrong?
