Obama Lies About How Many Women Have Been Raped in America

Obama has now decided that almost 40 million women in America have been raped. This quite despite the fact that the government’s own national crime statistics report less than 2 million rapes in the last 20 years.

Once again we see Obama boldly lying to push his agenda understanding fully that the press and his left-wing, anti-American allies will uncritically regurgitate his claims to help him.

Obama disgorged his rape stat lie during the Grammys last weekend where he said, “Right now, nearly 1 in 5 women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape. And more than 1 in 4 women has experienced some form of domestic violence.”

This outrageous number simply cannot be true.

Ashe Schow did a great job destroying Obama’s claim on Monday, but even this liar in chief’s own government puts the lie to his numbers.

The FBI’s crime stats show that less than 2 million rapes have been reported in the last 20 years.

Now, many will say that this may be because many women never report their rape. OK, fine. But the disparity between Obama’s claim that 40 million women have been raped and the FBI’s 2 million report is a disparity that simply defies logic.

Of course, one of the ways Obama and his allies arrived at this lie-filled number of 40 million rapes is that they have defined “rape” so loosely that even an “unwanted kiss” is now described as “rape.”

Now, remember, this is the same president who only a day before scolded America for “hyping” the number of terror attacks and disparaging Islam. One day he acts as if “hyping” something is bad and the very next shows that he is willing to “hype” something else to get his own way.

What this shows is that words and facts have no meaning to the scumbag in the White House. He’ll say anything and do anything to push his anti-American agenda.

Perhaps we should be used to this lair, though…

    I’ll let others fill in with the low hanging lies of “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” and “the most transparent administration in history.” He’s a national disgrace.

    • Commander_Chico

      I think he really believes that shit. It was “rape or attempted rape.” Given that these self-reported studies these terms mean “he didn’t call back,” or “a creep was looking at me,” it’s not surprising.

      It’s all part of mobilizing females for the Democratic party.

      • Walter_Cronanty

        While I believe that Obama is not nearly as intelligent as he and others think he is, he’s not stupid. No one, let alone a constitutional law professor, can believe that “rape or attempted rape” means “he didn’t call back,” or “a creep was looking at me.”
        Did he lie to mobilize “females for the Democratic party?” Absolutely.

        • jim_m

          The left actually does define rape as Chico claims.

  • WHO’S THE BUSTER

    It is not as if he simply pulled a number out of thin air.

    If you do a search for “how many women have been raped” you are immediately directed to this study, the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, which was begun in 2010 with the support of the National Institute of Justice and the Department of Defense.

    If you disagree with the results, fine, but to intimate that he is lying is truly disingenuous.

  • Brucehenry
    • Vagabond661

      so the FBI stats are wrong?

      • Brucehenry

        The FBI stats are about rapes — forcible, physical, “successful” rapes — reported to the police. The studies referred to in the above links are about sexual assaults and attempted sexual assaults, and other “sexual violence” whether reported to the cops or not.

        Posting the links also addresses Warner’s notion that Obama simply made this shit up out of whole cloth.

        • Vagabond661

          From your link: “The researchers defined rape as completed forced penetration, forced penetration facilitated by drugs or alcohol, or attempted forced penetration.

          By that definition, 1 percent of women surveyed reported being raped in the previous year, a figure that suggests that 1.3 million American women annually may be victims of rape or attempted rape.”

          • Brucehenry

            Right, and over 20 or 30 years that comes pretty close to 40 million.

          • Vagabond661

            1% is one percent. It’s not one in 5

          • Brucehenry

            One percent a year, silly. Assuming that different women are raped each year, 1% getting raped a year adds up to 20% having BEEN raped over 20 years.

            20% IS one in five.

          • jim_m

            it adds up to less because some of those people are going to be raped more than once.

            AAlso, people raped more than once will be likely to be more than just what one would predict by random assortment since they will live in high crime areas and have higher risk factors.

          • Vagabond661

            After a year, there are deaths and there are births. The 1% is not accumulative. By your math after 200 years there are 400 million women walking around who were raped.

          • Thus the observation that while figures may not lie, liars certainly do figure…

          • jim_m

            That’s exactly true. The people surveyed each year only partially overlap the people surveyed the year before. Bruce’s claim only has validity if the population is completely stagnant and no one is ever assaulted more than once.

          • Brucehenry

            I doubt you have any figures handy as to how many women are assaulted more than once.

          • jim_m

            No I dont, but logic insists that it happens and I can provide anecdotal proof that it does.

          • Brucehenry

            The 1% IS accumulative to a degree since most women do live from year to year, neither dying nor being born.

            Some women will be raped more than once, but how many? Neither you nor I know.

          • Guest

            I agree. So the 1 in 5 number is bogus.

          • Brucehenry

            Take it up with the authors of these studies.

          • jim_m

            OK so the lifetime risk is 8 in 10 women are oing to be raped. Please pony up the data to support your position.

            I have asked repeatedly for you to do so and you have ignored those requests. You threw out a bogus stat, claimed an outrageous conclusion from it and then ran and hid when it was demonstrated how idiotic your claim was.

          • jim_m

            That’s bs. Average life expectancy is 78 years not 20 years. If there are 1% getting raped every year by your idiotic claim the rate would be 78%.

            If you believe 8 out of 10 women are being raped I really wonder wtf is going on in your household.

          • Brucehenry

            It’s not my claim but the claim of these studies in the NYT and the WaPo.

            I would assume that most women who are raped are raped in their childbearing years. Not all but most, so that would lower the cumulative number.

          • jim_m

            Dude, you just made a claim about the number of women raped over their lifetime. You made no claim that the rapes counted were only for women in child bearing years.

            Again, your claim is that the 1% is cumulative so therefore the cumulative risk is 78%. Nearly 8 in 10 women will be raped according to your logic. Defend it.

          • jim_m

            1% is one percent. The entire data is for all women. If it were true that women between the ages of 15 and 50 were the only ones being raped that would mean that the rate for them would be higher but the overall risk would still be 1%.

            Your claim is that the 1% is cumulative so therfore nearly 8 in 10 women of your acquaintance have been raped. That is not my experience. Wtf is going on where you live?

          • jim_m

            You have adopted the claim by defending it. Now you are running away having been shown that it is bs.

          • Brucehenry

            I don’t think it’s beyond the realm of possibility that, if you got 100 women from all walks of life and all ages in a room, one of them has been raped within the past year. Do you think that is statistically impossible?

          • jim_m

            idiot. Do you really have that hard a time with basic arithmatic?

          • Brucehenry

            About the same degree of difficulty you have with punctuation and spelling.

          • jim_m

            Post with a cell phone sometime and see how you fare.

          • Of course its not statistically impossible, but it’s statistically unlikely. Now if the claim was ‘ever’ but not just in the last year the probability or 1-2 having been raped be significantly higher.

          • Brucehenry

            Which number you just pulled out of thin air.

          • I didn’t really have to pull any numbers ‘out of thin air’. I just applied an understanding of statistics. Something with a low probably of happening within one year applied to a longer time span (Let’s say the lifetimes of 100 women of various ages) has a much greater chance of having had happened. I don’t understand what you are having trouble understanding?

            (and you picked the numbers of 100 women, 1 year, and possibility of 1 having been raped. I only amended the last number to 1-2. It could be several, but likely a low number, based on the FBI statistics)

          • Guest

            That would be 1 in 100, not 1 in 5.

          • Vagabond661

            1 in 100, not 1 in 5.

          • jim_m

            Highly improbable.

            It raises the question of how many women do you know that have been raped? Because you must know some if the number us that high. I myself do not.

          • jim_m

            It is also about partner rape so it is surveying people who claim to be forced by their partners. Spousal rape is a very difficult issue to define and even harder to prosecute.

            Also this includes people who were drunk or high at the time so it is difficult to say that this is rape since you don’t know if it is really rape or they merely regret doing it afterwards.

          • Brucehenry

            Merely showing that Obama’s claim is not a “lie” as Warner hysterically asserts, but a recitation of these studies.

          • jim_m

            It’s a lie because it is a manipulative misrepresentation of statistics. As I have said below, your claim that the 1% raped must be cumulative means that over the 78 year life expectancy, a woman stands a 78% likelihood of being raped.

            Your and obama’s claim is ignorant at best and more likely deliberately deceitful.

          • WHO’S THE BUSTER

            Wow, you would think that you guys would fall on the right side of things every now and then, simply by accident.

            Again, it was intimated that Obama lied. He did not, and if you have a problem with the study, then that is where your argument lies. This was not some small pool study that was funded by a corporation with a profit-driven agenda.

            I can only imagine what the reaction might be if Obama had gone with an absurdly low number.

            Oh well, the right is consistent, if nothing else.

          • jim_m

            so you are saying that the misapplication of statistics is OK because even though it is misleading and implies that the lifetime risk is 8 in 10, that the statement is ideologically true and therefore it doesn’t matter what was said.

            Nice.

          • Brucehenry

            Obama should make a statement in favor of breathing so we could all have fun watching Republicans turn blue and pass out.

          • mike4372

            Obama is the POTUS…He should know stats like that are bullshit! 35,000,000 have been raped or victims of attempted rape but over the last 20 years only 2,000,0000 rapes have been reported? Only about 6% or women report rapes? Should we believe every women who says she has been raped? Were Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers telling the truth? Is Bill Clinton a rapist?

          • Brucehenry

            You and your imaginary gotchas.

            I assume Obama is using these studies to get his figure of “almost one in five women have been victims of rape or attempted rape” but I don’t see Obama saying anything about the 1% part. And we’re talking about women, not babies or little girls. I don’t know but I would guess the risk of rape is pretty low for babies, and probably almost as low for women over, say, 40 or 45. Since neither babies, prepubescent girls, or little old ladies have much interaction with potential rapists — or at least they have less interaction than women of childbearing (dating) age.

            You can scream till the cows come home about a claim of 78%, but neither Obama nor I made any such claim, implied or otherwise.

          • jim_m

            Yes you did. You stated:

            1% getting raped a year adds up to 20% having BEEN raped over 20 years.

            SO,since the average lifespan is 78 years the lifetime risk is 8 in 10. It isn’t stretching your words or twisting your statement to mean something you didn’t claim. It is a direct conclusion from what you said. What reason is there for there to only be a risk for 20 years? The survey doesn’t say that it is limited to a 20 year age range.

            If the 1% is cumulative then it is cumulative for the entire lifetime of the woman. It is you who are lying and now hiding from the fact that your are making a wildly ignorant and obviously false claim.

            You made a completely bullshit claim and now you are refusing to either admit it is false or even defend it. THAT is completely dishonest argumentation.

            [edit] even if you assume that the survey only includes adults it remains a 6 in 10 chance of being raped.

          • Brucehenry

            Here’s a link to a summary of the study in question. Why don’t you read it and show me where it leads to a claim of 80%?

          • jim_m

            No link, but I don’t need one. If you reread your statement above it says that if 1% all women have been raped in the past year then over 20 years that will accumulate to 20% of all women.

            There is no necessity or evidence to suggest that this must stop after 20 years. You are using this as a statistic for all women and not just a small cohort. Therefore, extending the same reasoning to the expected lifetime of all women is not only reasonable, but it is necessary to understand the extent of the issue.

            Your claim. You said the words I quoted above. If you don’t understand statistics then you should STFU.

  • Paul Hooson

    In one college psychology class I attended, the professor asked how many women in the class had once been a rape victim. It was a significant number out of a class of about 100. Reported rapes and incidents where underaged women are forced into sex by a date, parties, relatives or other incidents are shockingly high. No means no. – Adult women are free to give consent to sexual activity, but underaged persons should never be victimized, and protected by law.

    • jim_m

      Says the man who claims he runs a strip club as a service to the community.

      • Paul Hooson

        Adults have the right to consent to sexual activity or adult fantasy entertainment. But, underaged persons deserve the legal protections of law from sexual abuse or exploitation. There’s a huge difference.

  • mike4372

    what’s amazing to me is stats show as many as 25% of women legally own a firearm….lets say 5 % illegally have a firearm…so maybe 30,000,000 women are armed but it seems the rapists are getting lucky and just attacking the unarmed women. Surely if that was not the case there would be more dead rapists…

  • mike4372

    And according to Obama if women go out they have a 20% of being attacked and if they stay in with their husband or boyfriend they have a 25% chance of being attacked…you would think most women would just stay single and stay home with the doors locked
