I’ve heard of fear-mongering before but this latest example from Vice President Joe Biden takes the proverbial cake:
If the Republicans don’t pass this bill, then rape will continue to rise. Murder will continue to rise; rape will continue to rise; all crime will continue to rise.
This is despicable and cheap.
Think about it. Any congressman could propose a bill today requiring that the federal government spend 20 trillion dollars to hire more policeman and wait for his political opponents to oppose it. And when they do – which, of course, they will because it’s an absurd bill – simply accuse them of wanting to see more women get raped.
It’s despicable and cheap.
Government spending is about trade-offs. We could spend all of the taxpayers’ money on hiring and posting an armed policeman at every street corner in America. Surely, this would reduce crime, including rape, right?
Of course, it would.
But I would be willing to bet fifty corn rows that Mr. Biden would oppose the measure. And when he did, were I as dishonest and mean-spirited as he is, I would simply accuse him of wanting to see more women get raped.
Shame on you, Mr. Vice President. Shame, shame, shame on you.
