Violence is not a Game

    1. Sponsored by

      EMILY's List

An extreme outside GOP group is telling its supporters to virtually slap Hillary Clinton. Here's how it works: when she starts speaking, the player has to slap her. They're advocating slapping a woman for speaking -- and they're calling it a "game."

This "game" is the work of a shadowy outside group calling themselves "The Hillary Project." They say they'll do anything possible to "wage war on Hillary" and keep her out of the White House.

This ridiculous behavior is why no amount of "re-branding" is going to help Republicans win over women voters -- they just don't get it. Violence against women isn't a "game." Slapping a woman for speaking isn't actually a joke. It's just gross.

EMILY’s List is demanding that every GOP candidate in 2016 pledge to refuse money from The Hillary Project and any other group advocating violence against women. Add your name and make sure the GOP knows: Making light of violence against women is wrong and won’t be tolerated – now, in 2016, or ever.

2016 GOP Candidates
Violence is not a game. Denounce the The Hillary Project and refuse money from them and any other group advocating violence against women.

      I'm not a fan. Hillary Clinton is too hawkish, corporatist, and neo-liberal for me to support her. But this is totally offensive. It's one thing to have political or ideological disagreements, but another to be hostile and abusive.

      I guess it's a game in which you slap a women, that women a candidate for President. If you even in jest think slapping women is cute. go slap your Wife, your Mother, your Grandmother, your sister.

      Yeah. Slapping is fun and all but that is all there is to the game. I've played this game countless times and there is just not a good enough reward. Rather the GOP, this should go to the developers and have them make the game more interesting.
