Rep. Salazar: Give women whistles, not guns; ‘You may actually not be’ at risk

Back in November, Twitchy told you how former Bush adviser Karen Hughes wanted to personally cut the tongue out of any Republican man who “says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime.” We don’t know who on the Democrat side of the aisle is going to offer up a similar threat to get Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar to stop talking, but you’d better hurry.

This guy’s worse as this involves life and death RT @red_red_headLooks like @thedemocrats have an Akin on their hands

As RedState reports, on Friday, Salazar argued against concealed carry on college campuses in favor of call boxes, whistles and “safe zones.” Why? Because you as a woman might “feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be” — better to head to the call box and let a man with a gun decide if the danger is real or not (if he shows up in time, that is).

Beta male Joe Salazar bans women from carrying guns on campus because he’s afraid they might shoot a rapist. #WarOnWomen

Did Salazar address what happens to the women if they’re not in the “safe zone” or if they don’t have that rape whistle on hand? Imbecile.

Earlier today I “felt like I was going to be raped” found a call box and the feeling went away. #COLeg #Salazar

@dloesch I was ‘feeling like I was going to be raped’ yesterday,but it turned out to be food poisoning. #HeadDesk #COLeg #Salazar

You know — because according to Colorado Democrats, women won’t be raped if they just believe it enough.

— Loren Heal (@lheal) February 18, 2013

Worst part about Salazar’s comments was implication that women are driven only by feelings, and might emotionally decide to shoot somebody.

— Trent (@Travesham) February 18, 2013

@travesham And let the media know they should cover Salazar the way they covered Akin and Mourdock.

Colorado legislator: You don’t need guns to defend yourselves, just wait for the gunman to reload

Can we please start the countdown clock for the liberal outrage? It’s been a couple of days already.

What does #COLeg think of Salazar telling women that they shouldn’t be able to defend against rape because it MIGHT not be?

— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) February 18, 2013

Unless #COLeg Dems swiftly condemn Salazar and he apologizes for his remarks, I’ll assume they endorse this “shut it down” thinking.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 18, 2013

Because women are hysterical little things who just shoot indiscriminately, according to Dem Rep. Joe Salazar. #waronwomen

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 18, 2013

Honestly, #COLeg, can Salazar define what “feel like you’re going to be raped” means? #waronwomen

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 18, 2013

Rapists can’t enter “safe zones.” Didn’t you know? Just like werewolves can’t enter holy ground. #Salazar #COLeg #waronwomen

Let this misogynistic Democrat know you don’t approve of his trivialization of rape on college campuses:

— Trent (@Travesham) February 18, 2013

Dear Rep. Joe Salazar of Colorado: You owe the women of your state an apology for your insane, insensitive wacky views.

— Kyle Raccio (@kyleraccio) February 18, 2013

Oh, and about relying on those call boxes? Check out this tweet from Salazar from last week.

Listening to testimony from rape victims on the lack of emergency assistance to them. Heartbreak!

Update: Salazar has issued a statement apologizing if he offended anyone. From the reaction, we say yes, he did.

I’m sorry if I offended anyone. That was absolutely not my intention. We were having a public policy debate on whether or not guns makes people safer on campus. I don’t believe they do. That was the point I was trying to make. If anyone thinks I’m not sensitive to the dangers women face, they’re wrong.

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.

Shorter Salazar: I’m sorry if you women were offended that I basically said you were too stupid to handle firearms. #COleg

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 19, 2013

Shorter Salazer: My essentially saying you women were too stupid to handle firearms was just an example to explain disarmament. #COleg
