Rape Shouldn’t Be Reported to Police: Keith Ellison

Rape Shouldn’t Be Reported to Police: Keith Ellison

Rape Shouldn’t Be Reported to Police: Keith Ellison

Few crimes are as devastating as rape. Yet in July, MN Attorney General Keith Ellison recommended that women not call police to report the crime.

Wait, you didn’t hear about that? Of course you didn’t, because not only is it an incredibly dumbass idea, Ellison’s reasoning is atrocious. So naturally the mainstream media didn’t want you to know about it.

During a July 17 Zoom conference with Rep. Karen Bass and PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor, Ellison said this:

“If you’re a woman who’s been a victim of a sexual assault, and the assailant ran away, wouldn’t you rather talk to somebody who is trained in helping you deal with what you’re dealing with, as opposed to somebody whose main training is that they know how to use a firearm? Right?”

Do you see why mainstream news reports didn’t pick this up? Instead, if you do a Google search, you’ll find that only blogs reported it. And it’s not as if it’s rumor or fake news, either. Here’s a video of Ellison with Bass and Alcindor in that Zoom conference:

That’s repugnant on so many levels. First of all, Ellison insulted police and their training. As one Twitter user responded:

“How is this guy an AG? Doesn’t he know they have special units trained to deal with sexual assault victims. What an insult – “their main training is how to use a weapon.” Yes, help the victim, but catch the perp! Good grief.”

In addition, a rape victim expressed her gratitude for the police who helped her:

“Having been raped, I didn’t feel safe until I knew that the perpetrators were caught and was grateful for the police. Also, it was the police who directed me to community resources to help with the trauma and therapeutic resolutions. The ignorance of this man is insulting.”

Secondly, this utterly absurd idea regards rape as not that big a deal, which is inconceivable in this #MeToo era.

Rape is brutal and humiliating, and a woman damned well wants the bastard caught. She doesn’t want a social worker. She wants a cop with a gun to arrest the perp. And she secretly wishes the cop could shoot his fucking balls off, too. So does her boyfriend, husband, father, or brother.

What would Ellison have a woman do during a rape — just relax and enjoy it?  And then call a social worker?

The sad truth is that a woman who’s been raped may never feel secure again.

But there’s a reason why Attorney General Keith Ellison might have such disregard for women. Turns out he has some ‘splainin’ to do about the way he treated an ex-girlfriend.

In 2018, Karen Monahan accused Ellison of domestic abuse. As a result of the abuse, she said that she suffered PTSD, not only emotionally but physically as well.

“By time I left the relationship in the middle of January 2017, my hair was falling out, I had severe pain in my neck, back and legs. My social life was suffering due to isolation, my work was slipping and it was all becoming noticeable. . . .”

“I went to the Dr. as soon as I left the relationship. I was told I was anemic, my red blood cells were very low. My magnesium was low, central nervous system was out of balance and much more.”

She also posted the paperwork from one of her doctor visits.

But Ellison is a Democrat, so #MeToo doesn’t count.

Now there’s another person in that video whom you may recognize, and that’s Rep. Karen Bass of California. The fact that she didn’t seem to push back on Ellison’s bullshit idea should make you raise your eyebrows over your scalp and drop your jaw to the floor.

That’s because Bass is on Joe Biden’s short list as a Vice Presidential candidate.

Not only did Bass praise the Church of Scientology when they opened their world headquarters in Los Angeles in 2010, she also lauded Fidel Castro. Even the New York Times admitted that Bass would be “the most liberal politician chosen for vice president since Jimmy Carter tapped Walter F. Mondale as his running mate in 1976.”

But now we see Bass in a Zoom conference with Keith Ellison, a domestic abuser who says that women shouldn’t call police if they’re raped. And Bass doesn’t push back against his comments, because she would rather discredit law enforcement than defend women. How cynical. Yet this woman just might become Vice President.

No wonder major news networks didn’t tell us about this video.

    Honestly, it’s the stupidity of the voters who elected him that is significantly more insulting. (And I wouldn’t assume it’s ignorance with Ellison.)

    She doesn’t want a social worker.
    Well, not someone called a “social worker” because those people often suck at helping people. But she certainly wants a counselor and a helper. She ALSO wants someone to “shoot his balls off.” (And the only … ‘issue’ I’ve ever heard a woman express about the cops doing it is that they would prefer the cops capture him and bring him to her, so SHE can do it.)

    The fact that she didn’t seem to push back on Ellison’s bullshit idea should make you raise your eyebrows over your scalp and drop your jaw to the floor.
    That would require me to have higher expectations for a Dem pol. I’m not sure I’ve raised an eyebrow for a Dem pol in 8-12 years….

    the most liberal dumbest politician chosen

      “(And I wouldn’t assume it’s ignorance with Ellison.)”
      Ellison isn’t ignorant he is a muslim so to him rape is a crime against the male who was enticed by the woman.

      • DM says:

        Oops didn’t finish should read;
        Of course Ellison doesn’t think women should report rape. He is a muslim so to him rape is a crime committed against the male perp who was enticed by the woman. The woman is the criminal and under sharia law would be punished, up to and including stoning to death if her male relatives did not take the lead and do an honour killing.

  • John says:

    If you don’t vote for Democrat alleged rapists you’re not black.

  • Joe R. says:

    Well, to be fair, for someone who failed to report a labotomy, with the two scoops inserted heinally, they might think rape should not be reported to law enforcement.

    Show us where you (the bad man) touched them, Keith.

  • Paladin says:

    You’re doing the Lord’s Work, Kim.

  • J says:

    keith ellison is a muslim and muslims are the dirtiest and most evil humans on the planet ! Eradicate them all !

  • Mary says:

    Where is MeToo? The Muslim perspective is credible.

  • cthulhu says:

    That we have such monsters claiming to be “mainstream” is horrific. I know my own code of honor regarding the fairer sex, and it includes sharp red lines.

  • Rick Caird says:

    How about we report it to thee vigilantes made up of fathers and husbands. I love the idea of Ellison giving us Carte Blanche.

  • Bill G says:

    Ever since reading of the Minneapolis Police Department’s rules for conduct while being robbed I’ve been posting on it. I’ve suggested that they’ll tell people that if the robber decides to turn to rape, that the victims should just lie back and think of Marx. Sadly, their Attorney General seems to think that’s correct.

  • ontoiran says:

    apparently under a leftist regime we will have to take the law into our own hands and get our justice the best way we can

  • Bill Dumanch says:

    He’s a believer in “Must have 4 male witnesses”

    We in the West call that ‘Gang rape”

  • R Moffett says:

    Why so upset? I think 2015 was the last year the FBI reported publicly inter racial rape statistics. prior to 2015 the number of white on black rapes was almost nothing, while black on white rape was huge. Nothing to see her. Move along. Not a peep from the feminists.

  • AS says:

    No offense to cops (married to one) but I would in fact want the biggest knuckledragger they have on the team to go and get the piece of garbage. Second choice is any officer of any size or gender and yes with a *#^*~#%< gun. Ellison can pound sand.

  • Henry says:

    “as opposed to somebody whose main training is that they know how to use a firearm?”

    Seriously? Because if so, statistics comparing the effectiveness of employed firearms in the hands of LE, versus those in the hands of the law-abiding general public, should be just one more checked box on reasons to reform police services.

    • GWB says:

      If their main training is in firearms, given things like the cop who shot the lady approaching the police car, their training in other realms must really suck.

    And not only was Ellison elected, but STATEWIDE, and not just by his far-left 5th District base. The unpleasant truth is that these people win because they unfortunately represent a huge segment of the electorate, and I dare say, the majority opinion in this country. On Tuesday’s primaries, for example, Rashida Tlaib won renomination to Congress in her Detroit district, far left St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner won her Dem race going away, and also in St. Louis US Rep. Lacy Gray lost to BLM supporter Cori Bush.

    It’s going to take a lot more than votes to set this country straight.

  • Fen says:

    “or their humanity to be validated.”

    What does that even mean? Dehumanized?

    Wish people would stop talking in SJW speak. Babel here we come.
