Preacher carrying ‘you deserve to be raped’ sign was hit over the head by baseball bat-wielding woman outside a high school in Glendale, Arizona. At the time of the assault the man was using a megaphone to tell students they’re going to hell. I’m not going to post his video (he doesn’t deserve the views) but RawStory has an article about the incident here and here’s an ABC take.
I’m posting because of the comments on the RawStory Twitter feed. Some of these are a priceless turn around on victim-blaming. Below is the original story and some of the responses are to the right.
Not advocating for violence, but I get the anger.
If you find yourself in a bad place please reach out to a safe person. If you know someone who could use a listener, let them know you’re there no matter what you have to do.
The bat had 'you deserve to have your head smashed' written on it.— Dane Rauschenberg (@SeeDaneRun) June 11, 2017
If it was a legitimate bat the male body has a way of shutting that whole thing down. Duh!— Lulu Ward (@MillieLou5) June 11, 2017
He didn't ask not to be hit by the bat so....— 1984 (@Jonessmithadams) June 11, 2017
I heard he used bats to play baseball, so he has a history of liking bats. Now he changes his story & he doesn't like bats? Implausible.— Miss Bilious (@MissBilious) June 11, 2017
