Ladies, Colorado Representative Salazar Thinks You’re Stupid

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”

That totally explains why I shot that guy in the garage a couple of years ago. I felt like I was in trouble and didn’t have a whistle. There was no call box in sight. So pop! Pop! Pop!

Except, I didn’t. Shocking, I know. If the jerk in the garage has extra holes, it’s got nothing to do with me or the .45 that was sitting on my hip that day.

You see, Mr. Salazar, in spite of your misogynistic ideas, women are perfectly capable of responsible decision making.  We do it every day. And no, I do not accept your feeble excuse for an apology.

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone. That was absolutely not my intention,” Salazar said. “We were having a public policy debate on whether or not guns makes people safer on campus. I don’t believe they do. That was the point I was trying to make. If anyone thinks I’m not sensitive to the dangers women face, they’re wrong.

“I am a husband and father of two beautiful girls, and I’ve spent the last decade defending women’s rights as a civil rights attorney. Again, I’m deeply sorry if I offended anyone with my comments.”

Gosh! Women aren’t only incapable of reason, they’re easily offended too.

Don’t apologize for ‘offending people.’ Basically what that is saying is, “I really believe what I just said, I just didn’t realize you were so sensitive.” Notice there was no apology for the insinuation that women are easily frightened creatures that jump at shadows and would shoot indiscriminately. Just that the insinuation might hurt your feelings.

People of Colorado, this is what your representatives think of you. They are fine with you getting high, but they don’t trust you with your own defense. Or maybe that’s the point.  They want your senses dulled and your defenses down. Maybe you should have a bit of a chat with them and remind them who they work for.

Everyone needs to be keeping an eye on this.  Don’t ignore it because you live in a free state. If the gun control crowd wins in Colorado, they will push for more.  Your state may be next. Don’t let them win.  Make them go home and lick their wounds rather than be empowered for the next battle.

    • Contact your own state’s reps, and let them know in no uncertain terms (firmly but politely…think of politicians as 8-year-olds who know no better. Its a pretty apt description, if you think about it) that you will NOT stand for that sort of crap to go under discussion in your state, and remind them that the ballot box will point out the fact that no woman capable of coherent thought will stand for it either. Also might mention that, should the rep *ahem coughcough* HAPPEN to cross paths with the reps from Colorado, a quick trip to a dark alley should convince the Colorado reps of their errors in thinking.

  1. Jennifer: Could we take up a collection to buy you a plane ticket to wherever El Pendejo Loco lives so you can smack him in his smug stupid face? Please? I don’t think it’s possible for me to explain how offended I am at what he said. I doubt that there are 12 people who would convict you.

    Erin: Here’s what you do. You get in your local politician’s face and beat him or her up with this clown’s words. “What, do you really think that because I’m a woman I’m too stupid and weak to be allowed to defend myself? Are you saying you’re rather I get raped than carry a gun to defend myself?” Attack. Use their tactics against them. Make them justify their implied view that you are better disarmed and raped/killed than able to shoot your attacker. Don’t use logic, go in for the kill.

    • Okay, I get it. I was under the impression that I was being asked to apply pressure to Colorado politicians, and couldn’t see what that would accomplish.

      Believe me, I’m nagging my reps and senators.
