Outrage as Fox News host Dana
Perino says female victims of
domestic violence ´should
make better decisions´

Daily Mail [UK], by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2012 10:18:48 AM

Fox News commentator Dana Perino suggested during a live broadcast that female victims of domestic violence should ´make better decisions´ to avoid getting hurt. Perino made the remark during a discussion on the murder-suicide of NFL player Jovan Belcher, who shot and killed his girlfriend before turning a gun on himself. For months prior to the shooting, the couple had been having problems and police had previously been called to their home as a result. Fox commentators were discussing the implications of the crime and whether laws governing gun rights should be reexamined in the aftermath.

Comments:
There sure is no shortage of "outrage" in this country over statements that are innocuous, especially when it comes to Republicans. Her statement was correct. Some women should make better decisions if they chose to stay with someone who is physically or verbally abusing them or treating them horribly.

Dana was telling the truth and the libs´ heads exploded.
Notice how hollyweird is remaking history thru their disgusting films: the latest is to make FDR out as a sex freak. They lie in school and thru their films so that bad is good and evil is fine. Then scream at Rs or conservatives when we tell the truth that evil is evil and must be stopped.
We need to take back the culture.

Everyone is equal.

Except when they are not.

And only the ´left´ gets to decide.

And the answer can change and change back.

Dana looks beautiful in the first photo, then there is a rather unflattering shot alleged to he she, but it doesn´t look like her at all. Look at the remarkable photo of the happy family, the football guy who shot his girlfriend, she holding their 3 month old. Baby almost looks like she saw it coming. Quite an expression for an infant.

Anyone who´s ever had a female friend or family member in a chronically abusive situation knows how hard it is to convince the abused woman to leave. I´ve witnessed long cycles of abuse/remorse/honeymoon/rising tension/repeat abuse and tried to convince the women to leave during the "good" times - it´s almost always a losing fight. IOW - I´ve tried to convince them to make better choices for themselves. Eventually, the women got out - when they made a good decision to leave. Obviously the main fault lies with the abuser, but those who are being abused bear the responsibility to leave once they know the relationship is violent.

Clearly, Dana Perino knows the real deal. As usual, because of her politics, she´s being vilified for speaking the truth.

You don´t have to be a lib to be offended by Dana Perino´s comments. I am offended....I am conservative but I believe when you are in an abusive situation it isn´t always as easy as it sounds to seperate yourself from that situation especially when children are involved. If you are in that situation and you find the strength and courage to get out of it GREAT but don´t criticize those that are not able to do that when they fall victim to their abuser.

There is much truth in Dana´s statement. Many women continually go back to someone who abuses them. Many women are drawn to the "bad boy" personna and get caught in the abuse and maybe-it-won´t-happen-agian cycle. Check out Mia Hamm´s decisions if you desire a poster child.

Perino is correct. Staying with an abusive individual is a choice, as is leaving. No one can argue that the better choice, the better decision, is to put distance between abuser and victim.

Any attack on Perino is merely an attempt to gain an ideological advantage w/ no concern whatsoever for the victim(s).

Some women are trapped in abusive marriages because they have no ability to support themselves or their children, although the Feds will fall all over themselves to support a "single mother." We´ve all seen the articles that a single mother making $29,000 and collecting benefits nets the equivalent of a women making $69,000.

Dana is right though - a man (or woman) who hits you once will hit you again if you stay. Such relationships are not worth salvaging.

Yes, women should stop dating the abusive type. Sometimes, they just don´t know. I get what she was trying to say and feel that those who are criitcizing her are only considering the % whose spouse covered up tendencies well.

I don´t know the circumstances of this case but do know that most cases of violent death caused by a spouse are preceded by many previous assaults often resulting in restraining orders. How do you protect someone who keeps returning to a spouse that beats them?

She is right.

This is not blaming the victim. That would be pointless.

But there are signs that men are controlling, have short tempers, and are abusive - either verbally or physically. A psychologist once told me that when a man throws or breaks objects (particularly objects that the woman values), or breaks down a door (or puts his fist through a window as Belcher had done in college when irritated with a woman), he is already a threat to her safety.

Women who value themselves do not usually get into these messes. It has nothing to do with their monetary worth. Mary Kennedy may turn out to have been killed by Robert Jr. after a long history of controlling behavior and verbal abuse. And heaven knows what else.

#16 has it right. You don´t marry these guys and have kids and THEN wake up and realize that you are being abused. The signs are usually there all alone. Young women have to learn to recognize them - they can be subtle. Controlling behavior is sometimes interpreted as flattering, "he really cares". It is not flattering. It is controlling behavior. And it is not far from controlling behavior to abuse.

I´m outraged at the lying leftist continual outrage to truth. Yes, it is ultimately the fault of the abuser. However, for years and years and years, case after case in the 100´s of thousand women have been killed at the hands of their abusers. In nearly every case(except in the Mulim world) it is/was in no way the first time the abuse occurred. If women continue to stay with any person that has been abused them once, they have some culpability in what ultimately occurs in that relationship. What bothers me even more (as these women make their beds) is the children that die at the hands of these abusive jerks. These children are innocent and ultimately any mother that leaves her child with these type individuals should´nt be allowed to keep their children, nor have any more.

Been involved with a lot of domestic violence "situations". There is plenty of help out there, plenty of services, counseling, etc available to the victims and their families. Dana is correct in her statement. Had one apartment that was a "will call" every Saturday night between 10 pm to 3 am. Would separate, take him to jail, she would show up 15 minutes after he was processed in to the unit, begging and crying for "us" to let him out, it wasn´t his fault he just had a bad day. It went on for about six months. He decided one night after beating the living snot out of her to go after their 10 year old daughter. She caved his skull in with a cast iron skillet. During the trial her defense attorney played the victim card..and the judge said no because in the file was all the times we had been sent out there. all the help she was offered and refused. A no win situation for her because she wouldn´t walk away...not that she couldn´t...

Dana is right. The excuses abused partners give are appalling. Oh, he is so sorry, he will never do it again, she is so sweet when she isn´t drunk, I just need more time to change him. We´re staying together for the sake of the children...
We provided an emergency "safe home" for victims of domestic abuse for several years, and we heard ´em all. The woman who sat in my kitchen midmorning eating her custom-made breakfast,, smoking, not lifting a finger, while her monster kids destroyed my house, was almost a victim of violence again. good thing my cast iron skillet wasn´t at hand, I calmly suggested through gritted teeth, the third time, that my allergies required that she step outside in the snow to indulge her addiction, that she take immediate steps to corral her boys, and that we would be making other arrangements Right. Now. for more comfortable housing while she got her life sorted out. Argggh.
That said, ´Just leaving´ is incredibly hard for many abused women. Welfare takes time to process, deposits for rent and utilities add up fast, education is often limited, and these women have often been so tightly controlled for so long, there is nothing left. No money is the least of their problems. We did see the occasional success story, but for every one of those courageous and determined people who decided that was no way to live, there were a dozen who went back for seconds and thirds,

I really think a fundamental non-understanding of what real honest to goodness men are and should be is the root of this cycle of abuse. The whole alpha/beta dynamic.

Women mistake physical violence for true strong alpha characteristics. An abuser is not alpha. Alphas don´t have to physically control and abuse to have women, they just have women, period, because they are alpha. An abuser is a beta.

Physical violence denotes a need to control in the extreme what little you have "control" over generally. THAT is not alpha. That in the end is the behavior of a pitiful complete beta that instead of alpha-ing up and working on why he is a loser and how to get more alpha in his life, he takes out his anger and frustration on the weaker people in his life that he can overpower and thus never has to address his obvious shortcomings. Why else would real men in the past and now be so repulsed and even violent toward these cowardly beta abusers? I know my grandfather and his brothers were known to go with the other men in their country town to inform one of these beta abusers that he better man up and stop beating her or they would make sure she never had to worry about him again. Sound familiar?

As to Perino´s statement, yes, women need to stop chasing and accepting pure betas, period. Never healthy. Leads to violence and resentment, even hatred on one or both sides. Men for marriage or LTR´s need to be a balance of alpha and beta, the balance that makes them just the right amount of supportive yet decisive and strong man they are meant to be. Just my .2.

I agree that the women involved should make better decisions, but most of them do not have that ability.

I was abused--not physically, but mentally--from the day I was born. Once when I was small, to avoid "hitting a child" my mother turn and began beating a kitchen cabinet until the door broke. She did not "hit" me, but I felt every blow. It began when I was so young I had no reference point to be able to discern that it was wrong, or that being abuse free should be normal.

My first husband abused me while I was working along side him, 11 hours a day as a heavy equipment operator, earning a "man´s wage," yet I only left him after he hit my son.

All through school, in the 60s, no one mentioned abuse. I attended church every Sunday, yet never had anyone talk to me about abuse or my constant depression. I had no one to tell me that I was capable of making "better" decisions.

Now, there are many sources of help available, for families, for women, even for young teenage girls with abusive high school boyfriends.

After years of therapy, my last husband (may he rest in peace) was an angel of a considerate man, but if I had met him when I was 18 or 21 or even 25, I might have been incapable of making the "better" decision where he was concerned.

She is 100% correct. Every day women have to make decisions about their safety. Making the decision to be a victim is not an acceptable option, especially when children are involved.

Back in the 80’s I helped move and hide a woman from a drunken, abusive husband twice. The second time the kids climbed out a window and ran to a neighbor’s while he shot up the inside of the house. My family risked our safety to keep her and her three children hidden and safe. She was a college professor and he was unemployed, yet she returned to him both times with her children in tow. When she asked for help a third time, I worked with child protective services and her parents to keep the kids safe, but she was on her own.

In domestic violence, the abuser is guilty of a crime. If the violence continues and the victim stays in the situation, the victim is also guilty… of poor judgment. Moreover, in cases where children are involved, the non-violent parent is guilty of an abusive level of neglect for subjecting the child to the other parent’s violent rages.

#33 has it right. I have been there, done that.
Abusive parents who had me convinced that I couldn´t do anything right, pushing me into marriage at age 19. Yes, he was controlling, but that was the "normal" for me. He became physically abusive and I had no where to go (in the 60s nothing was available)..I left when he went after my child. I was threatened that I would never see the child again, I had no job, no skills, no money.
It took a lot of counseling before I learned that I DID indeed have choices and did not have to stay in that situation. I left and have been happy ever since.
Women in these situations DO NOT realize they have a choice. Please try to understand..the old "why don´t you leave him" question is no help at all.

Sorry # 36 for your past woes. But that no longer cuts it as not a viable option, especially when children are involved. Not only is leaving the only option, if you have to move to Canada and save yourself and your children...there is all kind of help now. In present day there is no excuse for staying with an abuser of ay kind.

I do think the mindset to not tolerate abuse is something that is best instilled years before a girl is old enough to date. Luckily for me my dad drilled into me from a very early age that if a man ever raises a hand to me, I´m to leave him immediately. Being of a faith that says the only excuse for divorce is adultery or abandonment, that´s one of the few instances I would have no qualms going against what I believe the Bible teaches & I think his early instruction is the reason. He had a much-beloved baby sister he had to rescue from an abusive situation & in his dying days sometimes referred to me by her name (I took it as the compliment it was).

Of course liberals are outraged. They want women to be dependent on government, so for liberals it´s more important that women stay in sicko relationships with psycho males and depend on the government to sort out the various consequences. Planned Abortionhood makes lots of money from the government for aborting all their unwanted babies. Employment security for social workers, WEAVE, and other Free Stuff dispensers.

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

The group, RunBenRun.org, a super PAC, has already raised $4 million toward a Carson bid for the Republican nomination and has collected 200,000 signatures for a petition to get him to join the race. John Philip Sousa IV, the group’s national chairman, said Tuesday that members are working Carson on an almost daily basis, sending along petition-drive updates and hundreds of “clamorings” for him to run, received through letters, Facebook postings and other forms

A tragic phenomenon has affected President Obama since he became President. The more radical his audience, the more outrageous his lies. At his appearance before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, Obama called voter fraud claims “bogus” and said his Justice Department has “taken on more than 100 voting rights cases since 2009. ” This is a bald faced lie. One need merely click this link from the Justice Department’s own website to see it is a lie. The truth is that 39 cases have been brought, not 100 – and only 13 relate to protecting minority voting rights – usually foreign

The Obama administration is denying that the National Security Agency or any other part of the government knew about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, known as the Heartbleed bug, before it was discovered earlier this month. “Reports that NSA or any other part of the government were aware of the so-called Heartbleed vulnerability before April 2014 are wrong,” White House National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said in a statement released late Friday afternoon. The federal government, she said, was not aware of the recently identified vulnerability, one of the biggest Internet bugs affecting the basic

The government is putting its (big) foot down. No more junk food in schools. As Danica Lo of Epicurious writes: New rules for school food kick in this July -- and for kids going back to school in the fall, it´s sad sad news (okay, not really sad, but healthy healthy news). According to new regulations being instituted by the USDA, junk food is now totally verboten -- in school vending machines, stores, and lunchrooms. That means that fruits, veggies, whole grains, and dairy are good to go -- high-sodium, high-sugar, and high-fat foods are not. Rules, as we all know, exist

Sylvia Mathews Burwell´s Senate

House and Senate Republicans have been mostly silent about the nomination of Sylvia Mathews Burwell to succeed Kathleen Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, but they will likely have a lot to say when her confirmation hearings begin in May. With Obamacare at the center of a protracted fight in Congress, Burwell, who would essentially be left in charge of the new law, is unlikely to win the same unanimous support from the Senate that she did when confirmed a year ago as the director of President Obama´s Office of Management and Budget. “This is not going to be another

Never let it be said that Barack Obama doesn’t reward loyalty. Loyalty to himself, of course. Within seconds of the announcement that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was resigning Thursday, news broke about who her replacement would be: Sylvia Burwell of OMB. Burwell is famous for something that she did last year. NBC News: A single person shut down the entire U.S. government for the first time in 17 years. Not a congressman, but an unelected woman named Sylvia Burwell who, as the relatively new director of the Office of Management and Budget, sent the email that initiated the process that has closed national parks,

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
