And while we’re on the subject of domestic violence, take a look at this excellent video.
It’s just seven minutes long, but it covers several of the important points about DV that (a) people generally should know and (b) the domestic violence industry is at pains to keep the public from knowing.
As with so much about DV, there are, on one hand, the facts and on the other, the facts as they’re reported by the DV establishment. So, for example, the Liz Claiborne Institute did a study of teen dating violence that found, to no one’s great surprise, that girls victimized boys as much as boys victimized girls. But did the LCI report that? It did not. It only reported the figures about boys violence against girls.
And it’s that sort of frank misrepresentation of the facts that the domestic violence industry can’t seem to keep from doing. Put simply, they have the facts but refuse to make public any but those that fit their narrative of “men bad, women good.”
So, given the fact that the DV industry continues to misrepresent the truth, there are plenty of people who continue to confront it with its mendacity. That’s what the video is doing and to excellent effect.
At the end of the piece, the narrator asks you to send a link to the video to your congressperson. Let me urge you to do so as well. VAWA is up for reauthorization and most of our elected officials in Washington are getting their “information” from only one source - the DV industry that depends on funding from those very congresspeople.
So by all means, forward a link to the video to your congressperson in Washington and your state capital.
Thanks for your assistance.
