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.
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!
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?
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...
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?
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?
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!
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.
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...
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
