Kathy Draidle Bagel Draidelbaum: An Evening With the "Rape Me First, Kill Me Last' Crowd

Draidle Bagel! 

You had me at "Rape Me First, Kill Me Last". 

Read the whole thing.

A Steynian summary of the evening here. 


When Mark Steyn Struck Back! 


"To some audience members (not to me, but for example to my furiously tweeting companion, a young colleague who happens to bear the same last name as me), Steyn dwelt excessively on the sexual crimes we’ve all read about in Cologne, Hamburg, Malmö and elsewhere. So it apparently seemed to Arbour and Schama, because they mocked Steyn for it in their rebuttals. Arbour sneered at both Steyn and Farage as “newborn feminists” (she got a laugh), while Schama disgraced himself with “I’m just struck by how obsessed with sex these two guys are, actually. It’s a bit sad, really.” (That got a very big laugh.) I took one look at Steyn’s glowering face after that remark — Schama will regret having said it to his dying day, I know it — and I kind of felt sorry for those two liberals, because I knew what was coming."

(I agree with the face, I saw that happening to you and was thinking HERE IT COMES HERE IT COMES!!!)

"Steyn slowly rose and riposted, in a tone of withering contempt, “I wasn’t going to do funny stuff. I was going to be deadly serious. (But) I’m slightly amazed at Simon’s ability to get big laughs on gang rape.” Vigorous applause. He went on, “Mme Arbour scoffs at the ‘newfound feminists.’ I’m not much of a feminist, but I draw the line at a three year old … and a seven year old getting raped.” 

"Vigorous applause."

"I think that was the moment those of the audience who did change their minds got it."
