A Culture of Victimhood: Using Rape as a Weapon
21 Dec 2010 3:15 pm
Crossposted from TabithaHale.com
This post was brought to my attention today by several women who were obviously incensed by Stacy McCain’s statements.
Here is the what I see as the heart of the initial post:
If you tumble into a random hook-up with no prior knowledge of the guy’s reputation and he turns out to be a selfish brute whose standard modus operandi is repulsive, dangerous or painful, in what sense are you a victim of anything except your own stupidity?
Rape is something that both sides are desperate to avoid …
Wonkette: ZOMG!!!11!! PALIN HAS BOOBS!!1!!!!1!!eleventy!!!1
9 Jun 2010 5:16 pm
Lots of proverbial ink has been spilled over Sarah Palin and the hypocrisy of the feminists regarding anything involving her. The scum of the blogosphere that is Wonkette published a piece this morning, based on the oh-so-credible tweet of some random minion. The hot topic of the day: Did Palin get breat implants?
The fact that this story was a) written in the first place and b) picked up on by several feminist sites and other blogs is infuriating. It’s clearly not true. This is the photo they use as “evidence”
White woman is raped by a Haitian man – white patriarchy is to blame?
30 Apr 2010 9:38 am
It has taken me two days to respond to this:
Ever committed to preserving the dignity of Black men in a world which constantly stereotypes them as violent savages, I viewed this writing as yet one more opportunity to fight “the man” on behalf of my brothers. That night, before I could finish the piece, I was held on a rooftop in Haiti and raped repeatedly by one of the very men who I had spent the bulk of my life advocating for.
Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies …
Stop the Haters: FreedomWorks responds
26 Apr 2010 7:42 pm
In light of GeicoGate and the recent accusations from the media regarding the violent rhetoric of the conservative movement, I’ve taken the liberty of editing together the voicemails and emails we’ve received as a result of DC Douglas’ call to contact FreedomWorks. Here’s the result.
WARNING: This is intense. Violent language is an understatement. I haven’t censored – only edited to remove names and phone numbers.
Now, just for kicks, go check out DC’s video of messages left by Tea Party members the day we posted his voicemail on BigGovernment.com. Any comparison?

Phil Hare: “I don’t worry about the Constitution”
1 Apr 2010 10:27 pm
This video just boggles my mind.
He doesn’t know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
“Where in the Constitution does it give you the authority to…”
“I don’t know. I don’t know.”
And then he pretends to be insulted when they call him a liar. Because he is. And then he walks out.
This man is everything that is wrong with our government right now. He believes it, so it’s true. Everything else be damned.
Rachel Maddow incites violence

We recently received this call from an “anonymous source”, if you will.
Sheer brilliance. Click to listen. Do it. Now.
Some money quotes:
“Be careful what you wish for – the right to bear arms means that everyone can bear arms.”
“We will be fighting you to the death.”
“I’m so glad that I saw Rachel Maddow. She’s brilliant. She’s absolutely fantastic. And her diagnosis of the ills of the American right are so right on. I mean, basically, what you’re doing is just saying no. You’re like belligerent children. You have no concept of how …

Are we fighting a losing battle?
25 Mar 2010 7:10 pm
I came to DC almost 7 months ago. Sometimes it feels like an eternity. Sometimes it feels like I’m still not really here… like I’m just visiting a place I never really wanted to be in the first place. I hate Washington, DC and what it represents. I walked through this city as a tourist and was stunned by the beauty of it. The history, the buildings, the architecture, the pristine lawns and the monuments. It’s like no other city in the country. The longer I spend here, the more …
Some reflections on this weekend. This is NOT over.
24 Mar 2010 3:06 pm
Let’s face it – this was a rough few days for us.
I was on the ground in DC all weekend. I got down there early on Saturday and had the opportunity to speak to the crowd of around 30,000 people, if only briefly. Saturday was beautiful. The weather, the attitude – people had come on short notice from everywhere to be in town to hold Congress accountable. We were overwhelmed by the turnout, and just stunned that that many had come together on such short notice to fight.
The magnitude of this …
In Defense of Dan Riehl…
13 Mar 2010 3:08 pm
Here’s the deal. Dan wrote a post about Harry Ried that has lefty panties in a wad. What did he say?
I’m not sure I quite understand this, given that cost is so important as a burden to taxpayers when it comes to health care. If Democrats want so badly to abort babies because of it, why are we bothering with someone who has a broken neck and back at 69? It sounds to me like she’s pretty well used up and has probably been living off the taxpayers for plenty of years to begin with. …

FreedomWorks is calling everyone that is able to Washington, DC on March 16th, 2010 for one more push against Obamacare. We will meet at the Cannon building at 9am and speak with as many representatives as possible, encouraging them to vote NO on this version of health care reform.

11 Mar 2010 11:18 am
So I’m back… and I’m relaunching my podcast with a recap of my Haiti trip. No guests – just a 30 minute stroll through my head. Talking about people, places… and how I may or may not be wanted by Haitian officials. ;)
Also, we will be testing out a vodcast, which will be up tomorrow. I’ll post the info when I get it – should be fun!
Fresh from a mission trip to Haiti, Tabitha reflects on the journey,
discussing the people and places she encountered.

Live from Haiti: Blancs in Citae
4 Mar 2010 12:02 am
Yesterday we went to a small village called Citae outside of Jacmel.
The journey there was an adventure in and of itself – there really aren’t any roads by American standards, more like paths wide enough for a car to get through. We drove through 3 rivers to get there, passing huts filled with women washing clothes, livestock, donkeys trudging through the rubble dumped along the way from Jacmel buildings.
We arrived mid morning and uploaded the truck. Barton Brooks of Guerilla Aid is building a school in the town, and we …
Live from Haiti: More on sisters of Charity.
3 Mar 2010 10:00 pm
Yesterday morning was spent at the Sisters of Charity orphanage in Jacmel, Haiti. I was told going in that they follow the “Mother Teresa” model – in other words, they only take the poorest of the poor and the sickest of the sick. We were going specifically to hold babies.
The babies we were visiting were supposed to be between up to two years old, but it’s really impossible to tell how old they are. They’re so malnourished that the two year olds look as if they could be 9 months. …
Live from Haiti: Tuesday morning in Jacmel.

Crossposted from tabithahale.com
As I said a couple hours ago, we headed to Sisters of Charity – a Catholic orphanage in Jacmel. The babies there, predictably, broke my heart. There were children that had to be at least 2 and a half years old… who don’t really walk. Babies that are two, that look like 9 months old. They’re malnourished. They have scabies. The skin hangs off their legs. We weren’t allowed to take pictures – on some levels, I’m grateful.
We fed them oatmeal. I was feeding one little boy, and …

I got to Jacmel today. We left Miami early this morning and flew in to Port au Prince. I’m not sure what I expected – but the scene at the airport was crazy. I was told that it wasn’t all that different from normal. The gates were completely swamped with people – all of them wanted to help us, so we would tip them.

Haiti: How you can help.

Posted from TabithaHale.com.
If you follow me on Twitter or are a Facebook friend, you know how completely obsessive I’ve been about the disaster in Haiti. I have been watching every news report I can find and have wept over photos.
I want nothing more than to get on a plane and go down there. I want to hold the kids and make it better. But right now, there are others much more equipped to be effective.
There are missionaries that my home church supports who moved to Jacmel, Haiti this year. The …
