Liz Trotta is an old biddy who takes pleasure in saying ugly, horrible things. Her latest is an attack on women in the military:
TROTTA: But while all of this is going on, just a few weeks ago, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta commented on a new Pentagon report on sexual abuse in the military. I think they have actually discovered there is a difference between men and women. And the sexual abuse report says that there has been, since 2006, a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults. Now, what did they expect? These people are in close contact, the whole airing of this issue has never been done by Congress, it’s strictly been a question of pressure from the feminist.
And the feminists have also directed them, really, to spend a lot of money. They have sexual counselors all over the place, victims’ advocates, sexual response coordinators. … So, you have this whole bureaucracy upon bureaucracy being built up with all kinds of levels of people to support women in the military who are now being raped too much.
This is such a galling, mouth-dropping statement that I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the insensitivity, the absurdity, the pure ignorance.
So much for that whole “support the troops” thing, eh?
