The rapist is supposed to be ashamed. In 2024.

Not the victim.

In liberal circles at least.

I think that Huckleberry Graham has set a new high (low?) for absolutely inane inanity with that quote.

Wasn't that a WWII-era hit? Inane the inanity! Oh, that might have been Begin the beguine...

Never mind...

Mace should feel shame. Certainly not for being a victim, but for carrying water for the abuser and criticizing the victim, E.Jean. E.Jean deserves to smile, feel vindicated, and enjoy some levity after the pain and suffering Trump caused her and countless others. Mace shaming E. Jean for celebrating her vindication against an abusive thug is horrible and revealing. Mace is a mess.

She has mentioned her rape in the past and used it in her politics. That makes questions to her about rape perfectly fair. She wants to have it both ways.

It is analogous to all the politicos who, having few if any other accomplishments to brag on, show those throw-back tableaux vivant of them surrounded by their spouse and offspring stiffly posed and often looking like the products of taxidermy, to tout their (usually phoney) dedication to family as an ideal, but goes into attack-dog mode if anyone mentions the DUIs, public entitled behavior, abuse of animals or other abhorrent behavior exhibited by their little trophies "How dare you bring my family into it!!!".

Expand full comment

They do like taxidermy, don't they? And there is no evidence that they aren't.

I don't think politicians, media, or anyone else should drag young children into politics. Not even--or especially--if it's their own children. Leave them alone.

It can't be good for the kids and proves NOTHING relevant . We aren't looking for breeders, and if such specimens as Jim Comey or Louie Gohmert be entered as evidence, better their genetic lines die out.

Expand full comment

I think their genetic lines did die out--or, at least, de-evolve.

Kids should not be used as political props or weapons. Of course, neither should many other things that the Repubs have weaponized: the filibuster, national security, flag pins, women's bodies, immigrants, etc.

The only person talking about Mace’s assault was Mace. Stephanopoulis never brought it up. She used it as a shield to avoid having to explain why she continually debases her self before the former rapist-in-chief.

Expand full comment

Mace would have forced a 10 year old rape victim to carry her rapist's baby to term. And shamed her for doing it afterwards.

In other words, the Republicans have no shame no ideas and no memory of history (several SCOTUS justices also didn't attend previous SOTU sessions even before Biden)

<<.DONALDS: I found his scolding of the court disgusting. Because ‘The Left’ will say they want to respect the institutions, except when they don’t get their way. And then when they don’t get their way, they wanna... >>

Mace isn’t being shamed for being a rape victim. She’s being shamed for supporting Trump and for being a hypocrite. But I repeat myself.

She is being shamed for being a shameless whore to Pussy Ass Bitch and for being a toxic subhuman. FIFY.

As do I, and I believe we should keep it up.

I've noticed that is a specific right-wing strategy is to victimize oneself by claiming one has been "attacked" when no such thing happened.

Also the disingenuous tactic of purposefully misunderstanding what someone is doing for this purpose. I'm so sick of it.

People on nextdoor claim I am "attacking" conservatives b/c I have pointed out, e.g., groups like Moms for Liberty is a neofascist organinization.

I get lambasted for "name calling" and "attacking" them. I fire back that that is no more "name calling" or "attacking" than me properly identifying my dog's behavior as "canine."

I'm so sick of these putrid right wing weasels.

Tr*mp is either going to destroy US or destroy the Rethug Party.

Hard to know which (or both) at this point...

Hard to localize the kind of destruction that a guy like Trump brings. It tends to go everywhere.

such nonsense should be handled by terminating the interview. "sorry you got all fixed up to spend some time avoiding issues, nancy, but this interview is over" would be just fine with me. I could say the problem could be avoided by not asking known bullshitters to come on tv, but i guess we can't expect everything.

She's still claiming to be "shamed" on twitter today ( I refuse to call it X).

I did reply. I am a rape survivor, raped by a stranger when I was 14 years old, so I demanded she answer why she is supporting an adjudicated rapist.

No response yet.

Perhaps she's too ashamed to answer.

nah, cause it was never about that. it's just that she had to practice her avoidance-of-the-issue game.

"It was not a criminal court case, number one."

Nor was Mace's rape. What a shitty human being she is.

Expand full comment

Except that she's not human.

Expand full comment

I wondered about that. Was there no prosecution?

Expand full comment

A prosecution requires things like a police report and an arrest.

The only reason the jury did not find fully that Defendant PAB did full penis in vagina rape was due to the fact that Defendant PAB did not submit a DNA sample as requested during discovery. Had he done so and had it matched the DNA of a sample of sperm preserved on the dress Ms. Carrol wore that day he would be wearing the "R for rapist" branded on his ass. Lie, steal, cheat, deny. IOKIYAR.

well, that and the fact that his finger is about the same size as his dick, so who would know the difference, i guess

I'm a rape survivor. How any woman who has been raped can support a man who has been proven liable (civil or criminal doesn't make one fucking bit of difference.) I don't care if you call it rape or sexual assault it's an act of violence against a woman and any woman who can make any kind of excuse for the behavior of a man who has been proven to be the worst of the worst - and credibly accused by a lot of other women and has bragged about sexual assault "grab em by the pussy" - and continues to defend him can kiss my ass and take a very long hike off that cliff over there. Republican women better get a handle on what they stand for because standing up for a rapist and misogynistic asshole isn't a good look for these women. And don't get me started on Britt and all her fucking lies in support of her raping cult leader. Fuck all of em.

Expand full comment

He hasn't just been credibly accused by women either. There is at least one 13 year old girl and one 10 year old boy who've also leveled credible charges and were silenced.

Yes, truly. As far as I’m concerned they can all ESAD.

“…Number two, I live with shame.” - Okay, so she just admitted the truth of her existence as a MAGA supporting Republican. Next point?

“And you're asking me a question about my political choices trying to shame me as a rape victim.” - Nope. He’s trying to shame you as a conscience-deficient hypocrite. Worlds of difference. But you do you lady. Tell your lies long enough and even you start to believe them. Better secure your groveling space in front of Trump Tower before they have to sell it off.

It's the Nancy Mace shameful/shameless paradox

Expand full comment

she should be ashamed of disclosing her morning activities with her boyfriend to the prayer breakfast attendees, that's what she should be ashamed of.

Expand full comment

OMG! I was just thinking the exact same thing and almost included that too! She’s an absurd, nonsensical scold of a woman.

Expand full comment

Well that's why she wore her scarlet A costume in Congress!

Nancy Mace is such a clown. But she's the funhouse mirror of those who elected her, so...expect more of these jerks.

Expand full comment

Exactly. And trying to score political points by using her survivor status as some sort of shield from scrutiny is a special breed of gross. What a vile creature she is.

Expand full comment

Right? If she were good people, she’d be out there fighting the stigma so being a victim of SA wasn’t seen as shameful. There’s no reason why anyone should feel shame for someone ELSE committing a crime on their person, but the folks with attitudes like hers in society make it inescapable. So gross.

Expand full comment

Instead she’s a willing participant in upholding a party that makes things worse for women, and, well, everyone else honestly. Her bullshit deserves no quarter.
