Phyllis Schlafly Says Violence Against Women Act Promotes Divorce And Hatred of Men

Categories: Politics

Meanwhile, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is urging Congress to reauthorize VAWA, with a letter saying the act "put in place a legal framework that better enabled states like Missouri to effectively investigate violent crimes against women, prosecute and punish offenders, and protect victims from further harm."

In a news release sent out this afternoon, Koster notes that in 2011, there were over 40,000 incidents of domestic violence reported in Missouri.

And that year, his office says, 30 women were killed by their husbands or boyfriends. Women in the state reported more than 1,400 forcible rapes or attempted forcible rapes. And while 10,000 women in need were able to find a place at a shelter, nearly 20,000 more were turned away.

Here's his full letter.

Hey Sam, if federal law established a Violence Against Whites Act, blaming everything on blacks and prosecuting them for things that whites did, would you support that too?  Choose wisely --- you cant have it both ways.

The fact is that women initiate slightly over half of all serious domestic violence.  There are no hotlines or other services that help men deal with violent women.  Men are supposed to put up with it until somebody gets hurt.  When that happens it is always the man's fault in the feminist lexicon.  Feminists put out volumes of self-nominating surveys to find what they want to report.  The CDC has two groups reporting on domestic violence.  One is run by feminists that reports all kinds of bizarre statistics.  The other is run by scientists who report things as they are.  The CDC puts up with feminists because politics insists that feminists have a say in things even if they are dead wrong.  See: http://mediaradar.org for some real peer-reviewed science.

Even in the Duke Lacrosse Rape case, the lady who ran the SART clinic rejected the finding of innocence (4.00 in the video below), in what was perhaps the most thorough rape investigation ever done (rape is also violence) The stripper, Crystal Mangum, was never charged with making a false rape allegation.  Crystal Mangum was later found guilty of child abuse and killing her boyfriend.

I suppose the author assumes women are incapable of violence, and can only be victims, and also never lie. Basic feminazi propaganda. 


Men receive no money for service of any kind, and are only perpetrators.
