Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Tim Scott (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Johanns (R-NE), Rand Paul (R-KY), Pat Roberts (R-KS), and James Risch (R-ID), I don’t think, are blocking the Violence Against Woman Act on the grounds that they hate women. I’m sure they’ll all tell you that they love women. And that they treat their wives well and want their daughters to grow up to be strong and capable and even independent.
Their objections arise because they refuse to allow undocumented immigrants, internationally trafficked sex slaves, transgendered*, and indigenous women who live on tribal lands the same protections that other American women receive from domestic abuse – which, sadly, is very limited as it stands.
So, Cruz, Lee, Scott, Rubio, Johanns, Paul, Roberts and Risch hate immigrant and First Nation women. And they hate them so much that they’re willing to dismiss the needs of all other women in the United States.
I guess they DO hate all women.
