The political left is ALL about condemning violence against women … unless the victim is a famous Republican.
The most recent example was CNN anchor Carol Costello, who was outspoken about the evils of violence against women when the victim was Ray Rice’s fiance. At that time, she explained the issue was deeply personal for her, because she was assaulted by her college boyfriend.
“I never wanted to become the poster child for anything, let alone domestic violence. But my blood is boiling, so when I say shut up, I’m venting at all those people out there who insist on blaming the victim.”
But check out her reportage about a recent assault on Bristol Palin:
“Sit back and enjoy. You’ll want to hear what she told cops about how it all started.”
In the tearful audio, Bristol describes being knocked down by a man she doesn’t know, who hit her and dragged by her feet across the grass (she was wearing a dress) while screaming expletives at her.
Warning: Costello’s attitude before and after playing the audio is beyond disturbing.
At the end, she makes a point of saying no charges were filed in the incident, which given her attitude, suggested Bristol was exaggerating or lying. But Bristol says on the tape she had no idea who the man was. It’s a little hard to file charges when you haven’t got an identity for your assailant.
Frankly, I wish I hadn’t just eaten when I watched this.
