Occupy Rape

In actual written literature(and for a supposedly grass roots movement don't they seem to have a lot of REMFs) discouraged rape victims from involving the police in their "community".

(Baltimore Sun) — Efforts by the Occupy Baltimore protest group to evolve into a self-contained, self-governing community have erupted into controversy with the distribution of a pamphlet that victim advocates and health workers fear discourages victims of sexual assaults from contacting police.
The pamphlet says that members of the protest group who believe they are victims or who suspect sexual abuse “are encouraged to immediately report the incident to the Security Committee,” which will investigate and “supply the abuser with counseling resources.”
The directive also says, in part, “Though we do not encourage the involvement of the police in our community, the survivor has every right, and the support of Occupy Baltimore, to report the abuse to the appropriate authorities.”

This must have been what the Vice President meant about the nation facing an increase in rape if the President's "Jobs Bill" wasn't passed.

I prefer this "real world solution" to rape attempts.


  1. I actually sympathize with what their trying to do but when I see stuff like this I throw my hands in the air, mutter "idiots" and walk off.

  2. Part of the issue is that it's only the "useful idiots" on the streets. Their financiers: The Working Families Party, SEIU, and Code Pink(to name a few) have a far more sinister agenda and it has little to do with the "99%" and a great deal to do with who the ruling 1% will become.

    Study of the Russian revolution draws eerie parallels.
