House Passes The GOP Watered Down Violence Against Women Act

After consulting with a deranged all-dude activist group, the GOP-controlled House finally agreed to pass the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act, but not before totally stripping it of its merits like it was a Ferrari in a chop shop.

After consulting with a deranged all-dude activist group, the GOP-controlled House finally agreed to pass the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act, but not before totally stripping it of its merits like it was a Ferrari in a chop shop.

The GOP version of bill strips out the provisions that were intended to protect undocumented, Native American, and LGBT victims that were included in the Senate version.

The Violence Against Women Act is typically a decidedly non-partisan exercise that even Ike Turner could readily get behind. However, it’s an election year and Republicans have more important things to think about, like defeating the black marxist and ensuring they never have to pay taxes.

It seems the House also voted down a request to send the bill back to the Judiciary Committee and dismissed Rep. Gwen Moore’s (D-WI) motion that the Republican’s version of the bill violates the confidentiality a victim is entitled to by alerting her abuser that she called the cops. Why not just call it the “You Weren’t Looking Purty While Making Me Dinner So You Deserved It” Act?

The bill will now go into conference where it will be deliberated on by both the House and the Senate, though President Obama has promised to veto the despicable House version should it reach his desk.
