Matttbastard lets us know what he thinks about the recent Calgary "rape" case, and you'll never guess who makes a guest appearance:
And of course we can't have a post on rape without a rape apologist (or minimizer, anyway) showing up in comments: Meet upstanding Canadian conservative Dickie Evans:
uummm... This took place back in 2005. If memory serves, the age of consent wasn't raised from 14 to 16 until the spring of 2008. Back then it was completely legal for this pig to have sex with that little girl after getting her drunk.
For that, you have to blame the [Liberal Party of Canada] and [New Democratic Party of Canada] because it was their opposition to a raise in the age of consent that had things held up for so long. Had the issue been addressed by the other parties, back in 1999, when it was brought up by Reform Party MP's, the subject of your post could have been charged and convicted with statutory rape instead of walking away with a simple slap on the wrist...
Blame the pig, yes, but save a little blame as well, for the left half of the political spectrum who thought that it was "OK" for the age of consent to remain at 14. Because of them, the pig was able to do what he did legally.
Fuckin' A, Dick! Those creepy leftists hung those kids out to dry, and it took the morally upstanding Stephen Harper Party of Canada to finally protect our precious young'uns. Which you'd think would be cause for right-wing bragging unless you actually went looking for that information:
Um ... whoops, how's that again?
The age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity involves exploitative activity, such as prostitution, pornography or where there is a relationship of trust, authority or dependency. For other sexual activity, the age of consent is 14 years.
Well, isn't that awkward? 'Cuz if I was a sexual predator and got caught bonking a 15-year-old, I'd make damned sure my lawyer brought a screenshot of that web page to court. Because if you can't trust your own government's web site, hey, who can you trust?
Your Conservative Party of Canada: Protecting statutory rapists everywhere by giving them a gift-wrapped loophole on an official government web page. Is that cool or what?
