Clueless: The GOP's Rape Obsession (Oh My God- TJDS)

241 ratings | 7202 views
Politician John Koster is just one of many conservative candidates who likes to talk about rape, but has an insulting, uniformed opinion about it. Comedian Jimmy Dore, political analyst Ben Mankiewicz (Host, Turner Classic Movies), and Steve Rosenfield (former Daily Show writer) break it down on The Jimmy Dore show.

There was this movie in 1989, called "Cast the First Stone", about a woman who was raped and kept and raised the baby. I'm sure a lot of Anti-Choicers would like to say that this is how every victim should do it.

The comment at the end is so idiotic. He is also merely a group of cells. An embryo is not a potential for life, it's an actual life. And it's also human btw, therefore it's a human life. Biologists define life by cell division as far as I know.
Jason Meyer (5 years ago)
fuck it it is a clump of cells and it is a baby! playing little semantics games, stop dancing around the issues..... epic fail of males tv talk shows and youtube viewers thumb ratings ......... why are you laughing. SMACK THAT SMILE OFF YOUR FACE!

Yah you sure got him! Now go tell your uncle-daddy that.

talk about insulting these guys laugh about rape...

I want him to do whatever he wants to do. If I don't like his particular brand of comedy I'm not going to watch it, & I'm going to use the comment section for what it's meant for, people's opinions. I watched it, didn't like it, then I gave my opinion in the comment section. What the fuck do people not understand about this very simple concept?
wangtangkiki (5 years ago)
It's his job. He's a comedian. Do you want a comedian to not even try? Do you want him to be lethargic?
Zentz29 (5 years ago)
You are very stupid. Because I don't like the same comedy that you do proves that I only like "shitty comedy"? Do you not understand why what you said is fucking retarded? Are you the ultimate authority on what is good/bad comedy? I don't know how to explain to you why you are a fucking moron,. You apparently don't, & probably never will understand. You are fucking stupid. Fix yourself...

^proof that you like shitty comedy only...that was a horrible joke
darkinertia2 (5 years ago)
so basically, you hate comedy.

Sperms alone can't produce a baby. A fertilized egg by sperm (aka zygote), however, has the potential for growth of a human being; Therefore, I don't think the two are comparable. Does the sock reference mean something else? Or was it just a bad joke by Jimmy's part?

My last name is Koster. No idea if he is related or not, but I do feel like an idiot for having such a moron with the same last name.

Whether it's insulting and minimizing depends on the context and intent. Suppose I were to forget what exact aspect of rape we two were talking about. I could then refer to it as this rape thing we're talking about without intending malice. It's a pointless taboo to get upset about an expression regardless of context or intent which will give off lots of false positives. With your position you'll end up condemning lots of people who meant no harm. Can you truly say you would be okay with that?

He looks nothing like De Niro, he looks more like Harvey Keitel.
Zamarioable (5 years ago)
No he is not, he is twin of Harvey Keitel.

Lets not forget in 31 states it also gives your rapist visitation rights

As an emergency room nurse, I can tell you "the rape thing" is insulting and minimizing. Is it like the cancer thing without the violence? I see women so traumatized they can barely speak, and I give them care and whatever comfort I can. When someone you know ends up in an emergency room (I hope it never happens) feel free to go and tell her, well it was just a rape thing. Language like that gives permission to commit horrendous crime, well it was just a rape thing! Shut the front door already!

Some of John Koster's best friends are women rape victims

The rape thing , is that like the murder thing? Is it like the larceny thing? Is it like stealing from your money hungry church thing? How about we forget about the bigot thing hiding behind the religious scam thing?

Jimmy Dore is a comedian by profession.The whole point of these segments ARE to take stuff a bit out of context.Aka the constant interruptions on quotes etc. To humiliate and to make fun of the hypocrisy of these so called "ethical" religious people they talk about. Its only at the end the whole context is given and the constructive criticisms is played out.At which point you have already said you agreed with hes sentiment,but maybe this kind of humor is not for you. Go watch a TS debate then.
Dragonworks (5 years ago)
Come on dudes, there's nothing wrong in itself with saying "the rape thing". It depends on the context and what was meant. We don't want some taboo against using certain words regardless of context.

in jesus' name, amen.

potential for life is life, so is it morally wrong for me not to impregnate any fertile woman I see who doesn't already have a man to make her pregnant? There is a potential for life.

goddamn right

Giving birth to the rapist's child probably gives the rapist a kick.
Eric Cisneros (5 years ago)
Took me a couple of seconds to get that joke at the end hahahahaha
Zentz29 (5 years ago)
I wasn't mad. I was annoyed, as I said in the comment you replied to. Like I said, I generally agree with what the guy is saying, but I am annoyed by the way he comes off.
theundeadtech (5 years ago)
chillout bro. why you mad?
wangtangkiki (5 years ago)
LOL! I too have a gym sock, well.. a washrag which is also "a colony full of people."

Moral of the story according to John Koster: If you get raped, have the baby, then give it up for adoption, where it will be left to fend on it's own without parents when it grows up. Pro-Life, YEAH
Jamie Ramone (5 years ago)
Does he mean it's an undercooked incest?

"Bacon bits on a salad." lol

No one gives a shit.
Zentz29 (5 years ago)
This is where I unsub. I lasted about 4-5 days, but even though I generally agree with what is said here, it's so god damn annoying. You stop the quotes every 2 seconds to ramble like a retard, a lot of what was said had nothing to do with anything etc. Also, this Jimmy guy tries way to hard to be funny. I'm done...
4tech69 (5 years ago)
Yea, it's a shame this happened two weeks ago and not several months ago. Derp.
Ryan Swanson (5 years ago)
The "rape thing"... my Jebus, how far have the nutter right-wingers sunk? It's no wonder they were defeated by a huge amount in the elections. They're one comment away from a straight jacket.

Jimmy Dore is really good at commenting on News from several months ago.
