Michigan Candidate Robert Regan Says He Tells Daughters to ‘Lie Back and Enjoy’ if Rape is Inevitable

While I am NOT a woke, anti-American SJW progressive, and I believe that American women are a lot more fortunate than women in many other nations around the world, we do still see vestiges of sexism and misogyny by Americans in the United States, and it can and does hurt girls and women. This (news story linked to below) is another example of that.

Also, as a conservative who is a former Republican, I have to say, if Republicans are serious about NOT “waging a war on women,” as they are frequently accused of by the Democrats, they need to call out sexist douche bags like this guy – which this article says they did, which is good.

Al Mohler and guys like him – guys who are obsessed with promoting The Nuclear Family (and marriage and parenthood) – often argue that marriage or parenthood is necessary to make a person loving, mature, ethical and responsible, which is CLEARLY not the case in light of all the news stories of men who murder their own children, molest children, or abuse their wives, but in this case, we have a father saying his own daughters should “enjoy” rape if they are ever in that situation. How perverse. It makes me wonder if he’s sexually abusing his own daughters to hold such an insensitive, repulsive view.

I feel so sorry for his daughters.

I’m a conservative woman, and I’m sad and frustrated to see too many conservative men who do not take sexism or sexual assault of girls and women seriously.  (Not that liberals, progressives or Democrats are any better; please see links below under “Related Posts” for examples.)

Top Michigan Republicans on Tuesday denounced a state House candidate over his remarks about rape, the latest in a number of controversial comments from the man who narrowly won a special GOP primary a week ago. Robert “RJ” Regan made the statements Sunday in a livestream hosted by a conservative group that was posted on Rumble.

He advocated for decertifying the 2020 presidential election, telling another participant who said it is too late to do anything that her attitude is like what he tells his three daughters: “Well if rape is inevitable, you should just lie back and enjoy it.”

…State Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser said in a statement that Regan’s “history of foolish, egregious and offensive comments, including his most recent one, are simply beyond the pale. We are better than this as a party and I absolutely expect better than this of our candidates.” Weiser had congratulated Regan last week.
