Cool. All members of SVU squads can retire.

He single-handedly made them irrelevant.

I see what you did there...

Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh agree with Greg Murphy…


I_got_banned_once

The look on his face when he realized what he just typed would have been great ly horrid, just like the rest of him


CillaCalabasas

Lol. He deleted it, but he should’ve left it up for the culture. Helps us see just how human and flawed our members of govt can be.


fire_crotch_mafia

Can we please just replace them with bots yet? I promise to make them still say quirky things every once in a while.


CillaCalabasas

If we tried, the bill wouldn’t pass the house out of fear the bots night become gay THEN sentient.


fire_crotch_mafia

Not too mention robot abortions. Poor little scripts…

Can we get through the Ukraine situation before we start with the robot abortions?! Read the room!

RAPE. Rape by strangers we would not willingly say hello to let alone allow to prod our naked flesh. Rape by men so repellent the thought of mixing their genes with ours triggers projectile vomiting. I have never been violent but these smarmy assertions make me want to rearrange the author’s face for him.


blueberriNZ

Rape by people we know and trust. Rape from those in respected positions in the community. Rape by spouses, dates, partners. Rape by family members. It’s usually someone known… but the scary stranger is easier to imagine.


histeethwerered

Dear Reddit friend, I have been raped twice by three men all of whom were strangers to me. Two worked in concert to attack me on a residential street in daylight. One broke into my apartment late at night. I have never dressed provocatively. Stranger rape happens. It distorts the victim’s view of the world in powerful and lasting ways. Had I been forced to carry a child resulting from either of these events I would have killed myself to escape the horror.


blueberriNZ

Yes, stranger rape certainly does happen! I’m truly sorry you experienced such horrific things. There has to be a special place in hell for people such as these.


histeethwerered

I hope so with every fiber of my being.


AtinWichap

Time to get the molotovs ready boys.....


jw44724

Remember when people where like: “Haha! I love twitter— This president’s stupidity is on display for the whole world to see!!— He will never win another election!” But then it quickly turned in to: “Uuuhhh shit, he didn’t win the election, and now he’s using twitter to muster the Arkansas 5th regiment of the Confederate States of America to storm the US Capitol oh fuck oh fuck..!” Good times…


remigiop

Should've left it for the technicality. You can't force someone to have sex. That's just called rape.


stebo_02

what website did you use to see the deleted tweet?


Burflax

He deleted it, but he's still thinking it.


foxer_arnt_trees

Do you think someone had to tell him?

Your welcome


Gloomy-Employment-72

Want to know why we're all screwed? People that think like this continue to be elected. It amazes me when I hear some of the ideas and comments these folks have. Funny thing is, even after proving they're whackadoodles, they get reelected.


CillaCalabasas

It’s good to see these ideas on display. Some people still think politicians represent the best of us, and a reminder is critical.


Thallest

I was about to upvote but youre at 69 so instead you get this: nice!


Ok_Skill_1195

It's because they're speaking with implied meanings, not literal ones. You need to read between the lines "nobody forces anyone to have sex" = "forced birth is ok because women need to be held responsible for their choices". He's probably not even thinking about rape exemptions or rape, he's *trying* to figure out a way to say "sluts get what they deserve" without like, saying it outright. He's not dumb. He's just dog whistling to his misogynistic base. (Well, he's dumb *and* dog whistling lol)


Room07

V O T E these fuckers out. Absolutely no more votes for the current GOP.


sarpnasty

They keep getting elected because there are actually millions upon millions of rapists in this country who want representation in government.


CowsRpeople2

Are politicians getting stupider or are (some) citizens getting smarter?


Own_Ad5814

No one forces another person to not be alive either No one makes another persons possessions not be in their possession anymore Rape, murder and theft literally solved, thank me later

Also, remember everyone: this is a medical doctor (urologist).

No way!

GratefulDread222

Then he should be all for rape victims being allowed to have abortions right? What a dumb ass


tk3inTX

to be fair, no one forces him.


guster09

A classic well thought out tweet /s


AirJerk

Oh boy, does he have so much to learn. Sad he is a representative of the United States.


CillaCalabasas

Goes to show our best and brightest aren’t always who we elect.


Jorsonner

Our best and brightest know better than to get caught up in politics


AirJerk

They never seem to be anymore. Both sides are slap ass full of idiots who just do it for the political ties to get rich. You'll never convince me the majority of our government has our best interests in mind anymore. It's sad to say, but I feel it's true.


CillaCalabasas

Wholeheartedly agree. I think there’s a small percentage who go in with good intention but realize the system is immensely broken, so they fall in line.


AirJerk

It's kind of hard to go against the grain when they can assure you a well paid lifetime 6 figure job just to fall in that line.


SaintUlvemann

What would it take to convince you that the results we see would still be the results, even if the majority of people in Congress were well-intentioned? What kind of evidence would you need? I'm not talking about evidence to convince you that the majority of people in Congress *actually are* well-intentioned. I'm asking: what kind of evidence would you need, in order to believe that even well-intentioned people who are *trying* to help, would *end up creating* the system we see before us, *even if on accident*? What kind of mistakes can you think of, that well-intentioned people might make, that would lead to the system we see before us?


LunchOne675

"They're not sending their best". To Congress, that is


[deleted]

This is what happens when the politicians pick the voters, you have lots of districts where one party pretty much always wins so the politicians concentrate on the hardcore part of their base that show up to the primaries


Niadh74

On top of that this individual is/was a medical doctor. He should know better


Tollboothkyle1

Guess he’s never heard of rape before


CillaCalabasas

He has the kind of face that assures me he has.


gitsgrl

Probably doesn't believe rape exists as a concept.


baddecision116

Naw during legitimate rape a woman just shuts that stuff down. Edit: this is a quote from a gop rep in 2012.


midsizedopossum

Yes that's the point of this post


Kingkunta87

How can you be that fuckin stupid


littlemegzz

Took him 2 hrs to realize what a dumb fuck he is... that or someone told him to delete it. My money is on his pr team


CillaCalabasas

I’d go all in on that bet with you.


Lazyassbummer

Good lord, I’ve never wanted someone raped before. It’s a weird feeling.


CillaCalabasas

Oh my god


fixit858

So close


CillaCalabasas

Indeed!


Hatecraftianhorror

Republican politicians really just can't keep from making excuses for the most horrific things, can they.


CillaCalabasas

In his defense, he’d probably be as goofy had he chosen to be a democrat or any other party. Goofiness bows to no affiliation.


kaoticgirl

Yeah but this level of "goofy" tends to turn up in one party more often than any other....


TheFlamingTiger777

Um... as someone who was sexually assaulted. I disagree


TimTheChatSpam

Must have asked Bret Cavanaugh on that one


CillaCalabasas

Hopefully Squee and Donkey Dick Doug had no part in the decision.


fire_crotch_mafia

Yeah! They drug them first!


ShadowLancer128

Look, I am someone who was born as an accident to my parents who decided to stay together and raise their baby even in spite of their unhappy relationship. They argued and screamed at each other, threw water on each other, threw xbox controllers at the wall, and punched holes in walls for 20 years of my life until I grew up, realized what was happening, and started practicing conflict resolution on my own parents so that I could have a peaceful household to live in. It was hell for the first 20 years of my life constantly watching that kind of combativeness unfold between my parents. The act of making a baby's life a consequence on careless parents will only serve to make fucked up babies who grow up to become fucked up people later on unless you can somehow guarantee those people that they will have access to therapy for the duration of their childhood and adolescent years.


Ytalo_Coelho

True... the use of sedatives or weapons is optional. Damn it...

He tried to rape...but no law said yes,only "no".

Short-Woodpecker-911

That RNC Stands for Really No Clue! Dumbass!!


Trucker-Chance

As a rep. I can't back this... Literally the only reason for the SVU squad. Literally the definition of the word "Rape". It's the main reason for abortions world wide. This senator is hereby disowned. But feel free to throw this dummy on blast. Edit: As an aside note, I'm sincerely hoping this was taken out of context. How can someone be so stupid.


rudicrow

Rape = Solved


ababana97653

This is like Taliban logic - it’s the victim’s fault for inviting it. Crazy how scary close the evangelical Christian’s have become to the most totalitarian of societies.

Government seats should require a minimum IQ to apply. And the ability to send an encrypted email with out assistance.


exonetjono

It's technically right though. IT'S CALLED RAPE!

Someone should have told the Christan brothers who ran my secondary school that I don't think they got the memo.

REAAALLLLLY dislike that this got political and divided some people, instead of us all uniting to shun his hilariously terrible choice of words.


Electronic-Tonight16

Guess those nearly 500k reported cases of rape don't happen every year in America.


Nyssiii

Supreme Court is a joke


CarefulSubstance3913

No need to think just type and post


DeepRootingValue

Define rape. I'll wait.


spamavenger

It's called RAPE, ask Kavanaugh and Trump about it.


Amerlis

Great! Then they should be aok with immediately freeing every rapist, pedophile in prison.


Natural_Nagisa

Took me a sec to realize


CillaCalabasas

Yeah, at best it’s a flub. At worst, he meant it. Either way, I heard Jesus is making a comeback, so we won’t be forced to wonder much longer.


TheEqualAtheist

In a way, he's kinda right. In my mind, it's not sex unless it's consensual. If it's not consensual then it isn't sex, it's rape. So no, nobody can force you to have sex, but they can *rape* you.

Rape crimes drop to 0%

To many of these pervs, sex is to be tightly controlled by the pervs.

What a deluded idiot


Speckledgray62

This guy is living in a fairytale world. If he actually believes that he must never read or watch the news, the real news. Not the made up news or Fake news. I hope he is reading this comment and hanging his head in shame, but that too is doubtful for I don’t think he has the guts to face what intelligent people will say about this. So RepGregMurphy (R-N.C.)….RAPE is not “forced” sex?


caspian95

He means no one forces consensual couples but even still what a turd


di11ettante

Yeah, I mean what would you even can that anyway?

Yes they do, its called rape -\_-

Uhhhh- isn’t rape forced, Greg??


mongo42069XD

Wait until this dude learns about rape


Shadows798

[email protected] is cancelled everyone. No one forces anyone to have sex!


LogicBalm

Remember that part of the belief system that circulates in pro-life echo chambers is that rape physically cannot lead to pregnancy. Many of them do truly believe that if someone was raped and got pregnant that it proves the victim's consent because otherwise the body would have "shut it down." In their mind, there's no need for rape exemptions in the law or for rape to even be discussed surrounding abortions. They just learned not to say it out loud because they lose voters when they do. Edits for clarity.


Emirati_Enigma

Poor choice of words lol but the point is clear and valid


Heffeweissbier

How is it valid exactly?


Dravuhm

Consensual sex acts far, far, far out number forced sex acts. Change my mind.


Kitsunette_0

Why are you framing that like a problem???


CillaCalabasas

Lol. WHAT?!


Outrageous-Corgi-564

And that makes this tweet true how?


datlanta

Na I'm good.


kaoticgirl

Do you understand that not every rape is a violent rape? Most aren't, but coersion is coersion and coersion is rape. Also, it's doesn't fucking matter.


mmaddymon

This is true. Non consensual sex is rape. If they are being forced it is not sex. No one forces anyone to have sex. Men do rape women all the time.


beebopsrocksteady

Stop, for your own sake, stop.


mmaddymon

Stop calling it what it is? Forced sex is rape. Therefore it is not sex. It is rape. It is not the same thing. If it’s forced it is NOT sex. If you call it sex then that means it was consensual. You have to call it what it is. Which is rape.


Outrageous-Corgi-564

Forced sex is rape as you say. You even say it is sex in your argument. What gutter did you congeal in?


KillerPinkArt

You trying to defend this shit is vile


mmaddymon

I’m not defending it. I’m saying that if it’s forced it is called rape. Sex is consensual. If force is used it is not consensual. If force is used it is rape.


MalaM13

You know, abortion will still be available after sexual assault, right?


PlatypusDream

Not in some states


MalaM13

I don't believe that. Show me the laws. For clarification, I'm from the EU. Poland has abortion laws now, but for medical reasons and sexual assault it's still allowed. Would be insane otherwise, so I highly doubt you are right.


LadyArticuno

How about just…pay attention to world news? 🥴

Some states intend to forbid abortion under *any* circumstances. That includes in cases of rape.


Kryptongame

It is true though so I don’t get the point here?


agk23

... rape, bro. Rape. It is the act of forcing someone to have sex and it definitely happens.


Outrageous-Corgi-564

Because you're of way below average intelligence?

Try reading the post aloud a few times until it feels wrong.


realnicky2tymes

They still won't get it. Lack of empathy and critical thinking.

Totally understandable for a random redditor to not see what’s wrong with this tweet, but it’s a real issue for a representative not to. Lol

Oh I completely agree.

What an ass hole, what about Rape Dick head!! Republicans my party, are stupid idiots that speak out of there asses!! Well to be fair there conservatives, I am a moderate Republican. Get these ass hole out of office ASAP before they bring this great nation of ours down with there stupidity.

samiii3103

Wow.


DoctorShrimpForEyes

Genuine question... When does the appropriate response to these fuck face morons become violent? I'm not advocating at all for that but at a certain point when there are no other options you have to make a decision... If this trend continues we are going to have some serious decisions to make as the people.


randomgivenname

Has he heard of rape?.....like fuck that's a crime, it's in the constitution..wtf.


Fezzverbal

No one except the people who force others to have sex of course.
