Domestic Violence Deniers

Congressman Ben Ray Lujan sent out a news release today announcing that he’s being targeted by Abusegate, Investigate!. According to its site, the group is bent on ending the “domestic violence industry.” But a further look at the principles and goals of the organization reveals some real gems. (My gift to you. Happy Thursday, everyone.)

Lujan is being singled out because he is one of 20 lawmakers who supports “discriminatory laws such as the International Violence Against Women Act that are known to violate fundamental civil rights and escalate partner tensions,” according to the news release.

Such laws contribute to the destruction of families, says the brain trust propelling Abusegate. There’s also a sister organization called Concerned Women for America that would like to “take the ‘gender’ politics and ‘politically correct’ agenda out of public policy solutions.”
