Women don't get raped because they wear skimpy clothing. They get raped because someone else breaks the law, disrespects the integrity and humanity of another, and commits a despicable act of violation.
That being said, this administration likes to blame the short skirted woman for being raped.
More specifically, this administration likes to blame Ambassador Chris Stevens for his own violent murder in Benghazi.
Allow me to explain.
Do you remember the recent brouhaha over Ben Carson's reaction to the shooting at Umpuqua Community College. He said, in that position, he would have attacked and urged others to join in the attack, because "he might get me, but he can't get us all." In essence, the talking heads made this out to be Carson blaming the victims for getting shot.
Some follow up in conservative media noted that the disarmament of Jews left them unable to defend themselves against the Nazis. Again, this remark was criticized for its supposed blaming of the victims.
Well, children, here's a bit of information for you. It's about your current president, the most recent previous Secretary of State, and their decision to BLAME AMBASSADOR STEVENS for his gruesome death in Libya.
You didn't hear in the media about that attack on Ambassador Stevens by the Administration?
I suppose not.
But here's a paragraph from the Accountability Review Board findings on the attack at Benghazi,
Security in Benghazi was not recognized and implemented as a “shared responsibility” by the bureaus in Washington charged with supporting the post, resulting in stove-piped discussions and decisions on policy and security. That said, Embassy Tripoli did not demonstrate strong and sustained advocacy with Washington for increased security for Special Mission Benghazi.See that last sentence, "Embassy Tripoli did not demonstrate strong and sustained advocacy with Washington for increased security for Special Mission Benghazi." Among sentences that could be written about the attack in Benghazi and the losses incurred, there is the one produced by this administration that indicts Obama and Clinton for playing the "blame the victim" card.
The key difference --when this progressive train wreck of an administration engages in this kind of deliberate attempt to blame shift onto the dead, as opposed to when Ben Carson simply explains what he would do differently in the same circumstances as those recently killed at Umpuqua -- is that the Lap Dance Media is too busy gussying itself up for the White House Correspondents Dinner, or checking the mail for the much vaunted White House Christmas Party invitation to do the job that real muckrakers of journalism once did.
At the end of this administration, when the trash is being cleared, I fully they will find one journal on the shelves of the Oval Office. It will be styled, "Things I Took Responsibility For." When they open the pages, they will, of course, be blank.
