You know how to whistle, don’t you?

| February 19, 2013

Thanks, Colorado Democrats, for telling us that women don’t need guns because they can’t tell when they’re being raped. Joe Salazar told women from the floor of the Colorado House yesterday;

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles,” he explained. “Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at.”

He continued: “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 a round at somebody.”

Of course, being raped isn’t as bad you might think, anyway. The thought of you being raped doesn’t bother Salazar – well, until he finds out that people are offended by his pointless blather;

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.

See, he’s a father of two girls so he has some measure of moral authority in the discussion. He’s not sorry for what he said, he’s sorry if you’re offended. He has two daughters, you shouldn’t be offended that he trivialized your rape. You’re a moron for being offended – aren’t you ashamed of yourself now?

Thanks to ROS for the link.

    Is this guy retarded?

  2. Rob says:

    So, when is he going to resign – oh, wait, he’s got a Douchebag next to his name.

  3. Whitey_wingnut says:

    Well he agrees with the University of Colorado Springs teachings on how women should defend themselves. By any means other than having a gun.

  4. PintoNag says:

    Both of his girls better understand what they will be expected to do to protect their father’s career.

  5. Twist says:

    I wonder if the MSM is going to blast this out there like they did with the “legitimate rape” numbnuts. I’m not holding my breath

  6. Lucky says:

    He allegedly “Apologized” Monday, walked his comments back, but still pissed off a large amount of voters…

  7. RunPatRun says:

    Despite a bunch of jobs leaving with Magpul, it looks like four gun control laws may be passed in the CO Senate:

  8. There have been so many Onion-esque seeming news stories in the recent past that I gotta wonder. Then I remember that we’re talking about politicians. You can’t make this shit up!

  9. PintoNag says:

    @7 I read that article, and the thing that caught my attention when, talking about college campuses, a senator said that “students and guns don’t mix.” What? That shows the mindless nonsense they operate under. When I was in college I went to school with off-duty police officers, military veterans, folks who were back at school to build their foundations for second careers. That statement makes it sound like every person on campus is an 18-year-old, first-time-away-from-home, bill-being-footed-by-parents, inexperienced dolt.

  10. crucible says:

    Perfect example of how many on the left believe self defense is morally wrong-the raped (and possibly dead) woman is morally superior to the alive one who shot her attacker dead.

    I’m a father of two girls too. But you won’t EVER catch me telling them that a “safe” zone is a magic force field that repels any attacker or that defending themselves means a whistle

    Asshole. I’d love to hear him expailing to the women in his life why they should not be allowed to defend themselves.

  11. Reaperman says:

    I actually had a buddy ‘back home’ who took a face full of pepper spray in a trigger-happy ‘thought I would be raped or something’ situation. He just happened to be big and following her into a building of some kind. Not that that has any real relation to the conversation, it just triggered in my memory. I wonder what ever happened to that guy.

  12. NR Pax says:

    His justification for his statement with having a wife and two daughters sounds a lot like people who tell us about their black friends when they argue how they can’t be racist.

  13. melle1228 says:

    Yeah and it is Republicans who have a war on womyn. God how frickin stupid can a man be. I would rather have Akin who has NO power over abortion(only SCOTUS does)than this idiot.

  14. defensor fortissimo says:

    “Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at.”
    If he’s talking about positive identification there’s this crazy new gizmo called a flashlight everybody’s talking about.

  15. Twig says:

    “Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at.”

    Because what if the rapist has two daughters? And what if he’s spent the last decade defending women’s rights?

  16. Seadog says:

    Gawd forbid somebody rape his daughters. He’ll be looking for every gun he can carry.

  17. Virtual Insanity says:

    I have a wife and a daughter. They are both armed.

    Would Salazar like to place a bet on who’s safer, mine or his?


  18. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Are those “safe zones” he mentions similar to “gun free” zones? Meaning they are basically a target rich environment for predators?

    @2 Rob you are correct sir, when Democrats take responsibility it means they intend to stay in office with zero repercussions because that’s what they do when they lie, are caught being incompetent, or just fail to perform at a minimal acceptable level in their job performance.

    If this were a Republican you would not be able to watch any news channel tonight without this splashed across the screen for all to see. Here’s hoping I am wrong and the 4ss gets the same level of contempt and scorn a Repub would.

  19. RunPatRun says:

    @9, good information on campus concealed carry efforts and Students for Concealed Carry, including empty holster protest days:

  20. Joe Williams says:

    I still like Uncle Ted’s idea for the Woman who is being raped or attacked. Pull a pistol out and empty it into the attacker. End of problem with three hots and cot . Also, no repeat offenses when released. Most important of all, a LIVE victim.

  21. PintoNag says:

    @16 No. He’d be lining up two things for his daughters, post-rape: lawyers and psychiatrists. Oh, yes. Also publishers and an agent to handle the talking circuit.

  22. Common Sense says:

    Sigh. We just had this debate a few years ago when Colorado passed a law saying that concealed carry was allowed everywhere in the state with few exceptions. CU and CSU tried to ban it from campus but students fought it all the way to the CO Supreme Court and they won. Then CU segregated concealed carry people in the dorms. I’m guessing the armed dorm was never targeted by rapists when they had all the other unarmed dorms to choose from.

    Apparently that all pissed off the Dems because here we are again, but this time, they run state government.

    I think he should get with the other idiots and give his wife and daughters a whistle and ballpoint pen and teach them have to vomit on command. That will keep them safe!

  23. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    The overwhelming majority of rapists do not use guns in committing their crime of choice. They prefer brute force, threats, and edged weapons. If that doesn’t make the case for every sane and sober woman to carry a firearm, nothing does.

  24. OWB says:

    “If” he offended anyone? He obviously does not think that he actually offended anyone therefore did not offer an actual appology to those he offended. Well, he might acknowledge that someone may have been offended, but makes no claim that what he said was offensive.

    But thanks for proving once again that men like you are waging a real war on women.

  25. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @24. He made it all better by pointing out that despite the incoherence of his statements, he is a CIVIL RIGHTS ATTORNEY. Gee, that makes all the difference in the world, doesn’t it?

  26. FatCircles0311 says:

    wtf is a “safe zone”?

    What is this freeze tag?

  27. The Dead Man says:

    #17 His, he’s probably got body guards after all.

    Guy’s a festering idiot. At least his comments were stupid enough to turn heads, maybe people will start paying attention to who they’re voting in.

  28. DaveO says:

    Crap, posted in the Lanza thread. Oh well.

  29. Hondo says:

    2-17 Air Cav: so he’s a self-professed “civil rights attorney”, eh? In your professional opinion, would that be a step up, a step down, or on a par with “ambulance chaser”? (smile)

  30. Hondo says:

    Jonn: don’t think that was the same Salazar, amigo. This guy seems to be a CO product only.

    And to add insult to injury: the tool is also apparently the Vice Chair of the CO House State Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. Sheesh.

  31. Heidi says:

    Just came across your site a little while ago, AceofSpades listed you. Did not know where else to post my comment, but I enjoy reading your posts. No not related to anyone in the military, originally from Denmark. Just wanted to say good blog.



  32. NHSparky says:

    I wonder how effective those “call boxes” are at midnight when the fucking place is empty, Joe?

    Yeah, blow that fucking whistle, son. I bet it’d work out real well if you were in a cellblock in Canon City, too.

  33. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Heidi from Denmark? I like it.

  34. Ex-PH2 says:

    I have no words for someone who is as brain dead as Mr. Salazar.

    I guess he thinks women can’t really be raped (or men or children, either) unless they want it.

  35. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @29. I don’t know what a civil rights attorney is, actually. Oh, I know what HE wants people to think, but, outside of an AG’s office, some of us know that’s just a load of unicorn manure on multiple levels.

  36. Hondo says:

    2/17 Air Cav: so, does “unicorn manure shoveler” rank above, below, or on a par with “ambulance chaser”? (smile)

  37. Old Trooper says:

    @18: It will never happen. They will defend his comments, if they even air them. The View crew of hags will defend him, as well, because, unless it’s “rape-rape”, you have every opportunity to blow that whistle, piss your pants, puke like you’re on a bender, and have your period on command.

  38. UpNorth says:

    I wonder how far away from our own Joey this douche-nozzle lives? Is it the air in Colorado, or is it that people who don’t dwell in the real world inhabit that place?

  39. Ex-PH2 says:

    I carefully reread Salazar’s statement that he has “spent the last decade defending women’s rights”. My cynical self says that he did this, not because he believes that women actually have any rights, but because it was and is a politically expedient side of the coin.

    It garners votes.

    His ‘pointless blather’ is nothing but a thinly-veiled mask for his real attitude toward women.

    How very Machiavellian of him. And how lame.

    For a moment there, I truly thought I was back in the ’60s when we were having all these discussions everywhere and how difficult it was to get the police to understand that rape is a crime of violence, right up there with aggravated battery.

  40. kp32 says:

    Roseanne Barr took to Twitter Tuesday expressing her views on arming women.
    “Arm the women of the world-send guns and ammo everywhere-train them to make clean headshots. #howtopreventrape,” the actress tweeted.
    Her comments come after Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar argued that even if a woman feels like she is going to be raped or if someone is following her, that it doesn’t mean she actually is in danger, and there are rape whistles, call boxes and safe zones for a reason.
    “You just don’t know who you’re going to be shooting at,” he said.
    But Roseanne disagrees.
    “Until women use force to fight force, force will win against them,” she tweeted. Mr. Salazar’s comments have sparked a gender debate in the news media, with many pundits and politicians saying he is assuming women are irrational by nature.
    “My daughter’s going to be going off to college in about ten years. I can’t imagine her only option’s going to be to outrun her attacker to a call box,” Rep. Lori Saine, R-Colo, told Fox 31. “I think she’s going to be responsible enough to handle a gun.”

  41. kp32 says:

    @38- I believe it’s the altitude, not enough oxygen getting to the brain. It also effects driving ability.

  42. Heidi says:

    Mange tak air/cav 17, I take it that means it was ok to write on here. No, I do not yoodle

  43. Heidi says:

    ups 2/17 air cav, did not mean to write it wrong.

  44. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    @43. I don’t make the rules, Heidi, but I think it is quite safe for me to say that Heidi from Denmark is quite welcome here. I just hope that you are a Heidi and are actually from Denmark!

  45. Heidi says:

    Uhm, yeah I am, and thx for letting me making comments, I don’t know how to prove I’m not a troll. If you speak danish or german, so do I. I am not here to make trouble. I can give you my old ss# from DK to check, not being smart.

  46. Heidi says:

    @44 Here is my full name Heidi Top Burks, and I’m on FB as Heidi Burks. My husbands dad was in the military and died a long time ago. Like I said I just like the other side of things on here.

  47. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Relax, Heidi. Enjoy your stay. You don’t have to prove anything. Enjoy your visit.

  48. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Heidi, you’re welcome here. Don’t let the meanies scare you off. I think they like you, too. But we’re mostly military veterans, and we are always hard on the newbies. Relax, take your shoes off and stick around.

  49. Heidi says:

    Thx, John Lilyea and I guess @47, I am just reading all the things that interests me. And this blog is pretty unique and worth following. I don’t normally get scared by folks, but I respect the us military, so if they don’t want a regular person making comments, I can understand that. But again thanks for letting me partake. Maybe I can teach a few folks at home something they don’t know. (Yeah that was sarcastic).
    And yeah, for full disclosure, I do have a snappy tongue sometimes, I’m a dane, don’t think before I speak.

  50. Hondo says:

    Heidi: not thinking before speaking isn’t exclusively a Danish trait. Most of us here have probably been guilty of the same – and most of us aren’t Danish, either by nationality or ancestry. (smile)
