Zerlina Maxwell, a liberal pundit and political analyst, appeared on Fox News‘ “Hannity” last week to advocate for men to not rape women. In return, Maxwell has become the target of a social media campaign threatening to gang rape and kill her.
Here is a portion of the offending comments according to Glenn Beck's "news" site The Blaze:
“I don’t think that we should be telling women anything,” Maxwell said. “I think we should be telling men not to rape women and start the conversation there.”
“Criminals are not going to listen to that,” Hannity interjected.
“You are talking about it as if there is some faceless, nameless criminal, when a lot of times it is someone that you know and trust,” Maxwell replied.
Hannity pointed out that “evil exists in the world” and women need to know that these situations unfortunately occur.
“We can prevent rape by telling men not to commit it,” Maxwell said, repeating the same bizarre claim.
Instead, Maxwell, who is a rape survivor herself, said she wants women to “not be in this situation.” She added that if you “train” men not to be rapists, we can prevent rape.
“If firearms were the answer, then the military would be the safest place for women and it’s not,” she said.
Hannity of course is completely ridiculous here, seeming to have NO idea of how rapes actually happen in this country and imagining roving bands of rapists that can be gunned down en masse, instead of the acquaintance, angry lover, or family member who is most likely to be the perpetrator.
In response to what seems to be a logical and reasonable assertion, Maxwell found herself the victim of social media campaign which featured tweets like this:
I guess in the eyes of these sorry excuses for men, if a woman cannot shoot them full of holes if they tried to rape her, then she deserves what she gets.
