I predicted it, but that’s like predicting that some lefties would defend Deb Frisch. You know it’s going to happen; the only question is how strident it’ll be when it does.

Pretty strident. In fairness, she’s not really blaming “Hadji Girl.” She’s blaming the heteronormative power complexes that blabbity blahblah:

Abeer Qasim Hamza made the fatal errror of refusing the “advances” of Marines. She had to have known, said they, that she was hot. She had to have known, said they, what she was doing, sashaying through that checkpoint every day. [AFAIK, none of the suspects has made any statement about the incident. — ed.] And she turned them down. Ignored them. Rejected them. Acted like she was scared. Who the hell did she think she was? What. They were there all the way from the United States to defend her and her family, and she thought she could get away with that kind of bullshit?

After they raped her and killed her family, they blamed it on “insurgents.” And in their minds, that wasn’t really a lie. In fact, to men under male heterosupremacy, beautiful women who refuse their advances are always “insurgents.” They are deceivers, evil vixens, jezebels, dangerous, and deadly, decoys scheming to lure them into traps. They deserve to be raped. They deserve to die.

Ways in which beautiful women are like jihadis is an idea loaded with comic ore, but beyond that, I don’t have any real comment here. It’s outrageous, but so typical of its genre that it leaves me feeling weary more than anything else. It’s Coulter from the other side. I’ll say this much for her, though: unlike most feminists I’ve argued with, the springboard she uses to accuse all men of bad intentions are five men who actually did have bad intentions. After being accused for the thousandth time of wanting to harvest women’s uteruses because you don’t think abortion is completely cut and dried, you learn to appreciate little distinctions like that.

The military today named the five other suspects accused of conspiring in the girl’s rape and murder. For the record, she wasn’t fifteen years old, as had previously been reported. She was fourteen.

Update: Speaking of which, Ann Coulter — American Socrates?

Update: The wages of male heterosupremacy. I don’t know how beautiful they are, though.
