Democrat Strategist: Guns aren’t the answer, just tell men to stop raping women

The absurd lengths at which Democrats will go just because they don’t like guns never ceases to amaze me. In this instance, Democrat Strategist Zerlina Maxwell argues that as a society we need to tell men to stop raping women, and with the proper training men will comply and women won’t need guns to protect themselves. And get this – Zerlina says she’s been raped before.

Watch:



NOTE: The omitted lead-in below was the CO Democrat lecturing the girl who was raped.

I don’t understand this belief on the left that we can create a Utopian society. This isn’t Star Trek. Humanity hasn’t evolved passed the point of evil. No, people ARE evil. If you want to be delusional, then you can believe that some Utopia will save you – or you can just get a gun and save yourself.

I agree with Zerlina Maxwell. All of you guys are cruel and are not understanding what she’s saying. She said yes guns can help prevent rapes but the MORE IMPORTANT thing is making sure all men understand that forcing someone to have sex is wrong. If men knew that taking advantage of girl who’s drunk and incoherent is considered rape because she didn’t consent to it then some men would never to it. of course some men would not care and do it anyways but that’s some men. That is just one example/scenario. Has anyone here been raped? DO you think “oh if only I had a gun he would’ve left me alone!” That is NOT what you should be thinking. It is NOT your fault, it is his. He should no better. And these aren’t everyday criminals we’re talking about. these are friends, coworkers, boyfriends, and relatives like she… Read more »

This is stupid. You would rather be raped than shoot someone you know? Seriously, you are worried about someone who is raping you?
I guess it is fully your choice to not shoot them, but don’t take away my choice to shoot them.

A year ago I went out to dinner with my girlfriend, her sister and her sister’s husband. Her sisters husband was an ex-college football player. From the start I cold tell he was a real a-hole. After a few drinks at dinner he became quite angry and belligerent with his wife. My girlfriend said a few things, and before long he was yelling and screaming at her. I decided it was time for my girl and I to leave. Suddenly he forcefully grabs his wife by the arm, yanks her from her chair and begins to pull her toward the restaurant exit door, all the time yelling “F you people, and referring to his wife as a stupid ‘B’ word”. Bear in mind this guy was twice my size, 6’3, 250 or 260 lbs. I told him that he it would be best to let his wife go, and that… Read more »

Liberals & feminists really believe that ALL Men are rapists. This is the basis for this idiot’s thinking when she says we have to “train men not to be rapists”. (If we could only get men and boys into re-education camps, the world would be heaven on earth). Zerlina Maxwell is an ignorant, man-hating fascist who would happily force people to comply with her stupid view of the world. But she would also happily deprive women and men the choice of whether or not to have a firearm to defend yourself.

If guns stopped crime, military bases would be the safest places in the world? Lady, when I joined the military, I surrendered my right to keep and bear arms. Military bases are the biggest gun free zones in the country. Which is why the Fort Hood terrorist attack was so easy for him to pull off. If you are not a military police officer, An armorer transporting weapons, on the range, or in a combat zone, you are prohibited from carrying arms and ammunition.

Leftist logic: we must tax Americans more so that the money can be used to fund research on how to identify and remove the “rape gene” from the DNA of all potential males. If the gene cannot be removed, simply abort the potential rapist, so that a rape may be prevented.

We think this is a tone-deaf anti-woman anti-self-defense screed. But it’s simpler than that. Democrats are genuinely more afraid of guns than criminals. Yup, they actually fear inanimate objects to those who would use them. The biggest reason for this problem is that the violent criminal class (and their sympathetic immediate family members) is a significant part of the Democrat base. So they can’t be super-tough on criminals and lock them away for adequate sentences, because they’ll be incarcerating their own voters. For this reason, Dems never see violent criminals (especially inner-city criminals, who account for 99% of gun violence in this country) as a problem, but rather as victims themselves who need more Government “care”, unless of course the criminal is a white male “gun nut” or anyone else who is clearly not ONE OF THEM; those are the only REAL criminals to Dems. So they go after the… Read more »

This is amazing. I wonder if her rapist, that she knew, thought she wanted to have sex. “No means no,” has it’s place. Certainly it does. Certainly it’s been the case that men (yes, in general terms) have thought, because *society* has thought, that “yes” up to a certain point means “yes” all the way. It’s entirely possible that her rapist thought that drunk necking means drunk sex. If she says… should I shoot someone I *know*? I think that, frankly, if someone you know is raping you, the fact that you know him is irrelevant… unless what you’re talking about is drunk sex or angry sex or “you led me on” sex. But maybe I’m just a bloodthirsty person and figure that if someone I knew and trusted, and perhaps even liked, suddenly turned into a rapist I’d shoot him (if I could) and call him an ambulance.

And I quote Zerina:

“I’m very opinionated. I want people to be convinced that my point of view on a particular topic is the right one. If I’m allowing you to think of a certain topic in a different way than you would have before reading something I wrote– that’s what I really enjoy. When people are like, “I would have never thought about it that way,” that’s my favorite feedback on a piece.”

Well Zerina the only thing you convinced me of is that your an idiot… good luck with Law school.

Sigh, yet another political (insert title here) rambling on about their typical useless solutions that don’t address the problems.

Telling men not to rape.The woman was a victim herself and she seems to feel telling men not to rape is an acceptable solution.It begs the question that during her ordeal, did she tell the person (who was a friend) not to rape her?

Everyone should be terrified by the level of logic and common sense that these kind of people have who are and/or wish to be our political leaders.It’s insane.

“We can prevent men from raping if the women tell them not to do it.”

I’m not even sure how to respond to that type of denial of reality?
Bad people exist and you have to be able to fight back with what ever level of force is needed to prevent assualt, murder or rape.

How does someone like this get this type of belief. It’s is extraordinary.

Also, how does someone like this get on TV?

I never thought that while I was riding my bike through a state park that I would be attacked from behind and taken into a field of weeds and raped. Gosh, if I had only told the guy “don’t rape me” he would have stopped? In fact I did plead and beg to be let go, to no avail.

That is the most absurd, stupid, idiotic statement I have ever heard! The fact that she even repeated her words at the end to “make her point” just shows me how stupid she really is. It’s obvious it didn’t work for her, either. I’m sure she told her “known” attacker “don’t rape me” but, he did it anyway.

Teach young men not to rape, but should you decide to, please pick up an unlimited supply of condoms at the school’s free condom dispensers.
And you school girls, you can dress as provocatively as you wish. You have rights you know and no one should judge you.

Men stop raping women
Homosexuals stop being homosexual
Pedophiles stop raping children
gang bangers stop killing people
Drink Drivers, don’t drink and drive
Bank robbers stop robbing banks

People who believe in the 2nd amendment and the right to bear arms to defend yourself from the scum of the earth that stalk in the shadows… Stop! Just say “NO” and the criminal/attacker will understand your desire to not be a victim and will go home, cuddle up with a good book and never again attack anyone.

She’s actually repeating a pretty standard refrain of feminist theory which is that the only person who should be blamed for a rape is the rapist. This mostly comes up in response to instances of victim-blaming (e.g. “you shouldn’t have gone out dressed like that! What did you expect?!”) and it’s not entirely without reason. I believe, ideally, it’s not unreasonable to say that a woman should be able to wear whatever she wants and drink as much as she wants without the fear of getting sexually assaulted. Where I disagree with the feminists – and Ms. Maxwell here — is the notion that rape can be prevented by education. Sure teaching men to treat women better might cut down on incidents of acquaintance-rape etc. still we tell our kids not to kill anyone but our jails are nevertheless full of murderers. That said, I’m also not sure that giving… Read more »

I had to come back and write one more comment. If liberals won’t read the Bible or take it seriously, perhaps they’d pay attention to a pagan Roman philosopher, Epictetus. Here’s the first paragraph of his Enchiridion:

‘Some things are in our control and others not. Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions. Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and, in one word, whatever are not our own actions.’

Things not in our control include ‘command.’ We can give a command, but if we believe we have control over our command being acted on, Epictetus instructs us that we are enslaved to something outside our control. In the case of liberals, it’s their theory. And to prove their theories–they have enslave us to their loony tunes world.

I am completely baffled by the liberal mind. It assumes that proper brainwashing can separate us from our human nature–not just this poor misguided woman who, it appears from her comments, believes in mandatory social programming for all men, but all liberals–laws to keep us from eating what they don’t want us to eat (for our own good), laws to keep us from owning what they don’t want us to eat (for the greater good), laws that tell us that the fundamental institution of all society (the family) isn’t necessary.

We (the western world) have slipped through the looking glass.

How in the world can we restore sanity when Hollywood, news media–including print media, and our universities, colleges, and K12 systems have distorted and jettisoned reasoned thought and replaced it with shallow emotion?

It’s what she leaned in school, the comparative approach to which the desired effects are only an estimate. Maybe she forgot she lives in the U.S.A., where rape is not moral and citizens sometimes have these things called guns which is the ultimate defense, whereupon
they protect your physical and mental property, just in case, for that piece of mind.

But hey, buy a shotgun.

I don’t know if anyone else hinted on this but I would like to address the last comment from Ms. Maxwell. “If guns were the answer, the military would be the safest place in the world; and it is not.” Here again the context of this statement is accusatory and false. While serving as a recruiter for the Army, for three years, there was a big scandal of a recruiter of a different branch that did a very bad thing. He started a inappropriate relationship with a recruit. This made talking to any female applicant even tougher when parents would make the statement that; and I am paraphrasing here, “I would never allow my daughter to serve because she will get raped.” Yes I had a father tell me this after his daughter requested to talk to me. This parent went to on to say that all military men are… Read more »
