Another Rape, This time at Occupy New Haven: Where is the National Organization of Women?


Oh, that’s right, they’re so busy trying to force religious institutions to pay for their $9 birth control pills  that they haven’t  noticed that scads 0f women have been raped at occupod camps.  Yes, folks, the Tammies will pass on this one too, just like they did all of the other occupod rapes.  They have their priorities, ya know?

Well, since the Tammies will say nothing of this, I’ll show you the excerpt from NBC Connecticut, via Weasel Zippers…

A woman was raped in a tent at the Occupy camp late on Monday night or early Tuesday morning, police said.

Police said a woman went to find the victim on Tuesday afternoon because she had not seen her.

She went to the woman’s tent and called for her, but there was no answer, so she looked inside the tent and found the woman, police said.

The victim wasn’t able to respond, police said, so the witness yelled out to other Occupiers to call police and emergency medical services.

At some point, the victim told the witness she had been raped in a tent at the camp, police said.

Police responded to the camp at 3:25 p.m. The victim was brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital and police charged England Gamble, 53, of New Haven, with first-degree sexual assault and first-degree unlawful restraint.

Gamble is on the state sex offender registry for a first-degree sexual assault conviction in 1991. The registry said he was released from prison in 1996 and did not register his address. 

You’ll always be able to determine a group’s priorities by what they do, or what they don’t do.   Women are being raped at Occupy camps, and the  Tammies say nothing.  Conservative women are subjected to the most vile insults, and the Tammies are silent.  However, when Limbaugh makes a joke about a woman who demands that a religious institution pay for her to have sex, it’s then a “War on Women.”  Well, while they are paying such close attention to this “war,” women, who are not activitsts trying to Cloward-Piven Religious institutions are being raped.  Apparently, it’s OK that these women are being violated, as long as the Tammies are trying to distract people from the economy.

You gotta love it when the outrage is so very selective!

  • I was keeping an Occupy arrest tally over on the blog, but I stopped because – literally – I couldn’t keep track. Ultimately, I just set up a custom Google feed using the words Occupy and Arrests. I think I stopped counting at around 3,000.

    Are there any Rape tallies? This is the 4th or 5th one that I have heard about without looking. And we all know the media isn’t covering it…

    Maybe we should try to tally up violent crimes – that might still be unmanageable just because of the quantity.

    The question is: Do you think people see what’s happening?

    • It is hard to get a good number. There is a high percentage of rapes that never get reported. Combine that with the fact that OWS organizers are discouraging women from reporting the crime, and we’ll probably never know.

  • NOW is silent as a mouse. They don’t give a darn about women. Their inaction speaks louder than their slogans and claims.

    • Indeed, they are standing by their men, aren’t they?

  • Shameful isn’t it, perhaps NOWs only interest is if the rapist wore a condom and if the victim can get an free abortion if not.

    • Well, they’re too busy trying to get religious institutions to pay for $9 a month birth control.
