Did Janay Palmer defend Ray Rice Beating Her In That Elevator Because She Lives in Domestic Violence Fear?
By now you’ve all seen the shocking and horrifying TMZ video of fired Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice beating his wife to a pulp in an elevator and dragging her unconscious body half way out of the elevator, and walking away, leaving her laying there like road kill.
This is the frightening reality of domestic violence that too many women in America endure, rich, middle class or poor. What’s worse is so many women endure this violence out of fear of their husbands killing them if they try to leave the marriage. But this situation with the Rice’s contains that shocking side we hear too often from the battered woman: Defending the man who abuses her.
The abused woman, Janay Palmer, publicly slammed the media on Instagram, blaming the media, not Ray Rice and his violent actions, and the NFL criticizing Rice’s actions, and the Ravens firing Rice, saying the media ruined their lives and Rice’s career by posting the video of Rice beating her:
I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact is a reality is a nightmare in itself…No one knows the pain that media and unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday is a horrible thing.
Lady, after a beating like that, you should need to realize you will become the next Nicole Brown-Simpson if you don’t flee that violent brute of a so-called man!
No real man beats his wife or girlfriend; only cowards beat women, only gutless thugs abuse their wives and girlfriends, because they don’t have what it takes to be real men. Men who abuse women don’t have the courage to fight real men who would kill them with one slug to the head like they deserve, so they beat up on defenseless women they make live in a terrified prison of psychological and physical abuse where women are controlled into staying because of threats: “If you leave the relationship, you will be killed, or, I’ll take the kids and you’ll never see your kids.”
Only craven, spineless thugs, who wouldn’t be able to defend themselves in a ring against Rosie O’Donnell, say and do those evil things to women. Real men revere women and will do whatever it takes to protect and defend women.
Good grief, even gay men wouldn’t do what Ray Rice did! But gay men could no doubt beat the cr*p out of Rice with both hands tied behind their backs!
Furthermore, I must ask: Was this the first time Rice beat his Palmer, or is this something Janay Palmer endures because she has a child she doesn’t want taken from her, since many abusive husbands threaten to take children from wives if they dare leave.
Janey Palmer, you must wake up and realize her daughter is being emotionally abused if she sees mommy being abused, be it verbally or physically.
According to Ray Rice, he says his actions are “inexcusable” and “something I have to live with the rest of my life.” Going on to say:
I know that’s not who I am as a man. That’s not who my mom raised me to be. If anybody knows me, they know I was raised by a single parent, and that was my mother. I let her down, I let my wife down, I let my daughter down. I let my wife’s parents down. I let the whole Baltimore community down. I let my teammates down. I let so many people down because of 30 seconds of my life that I know I can’t take back.
Ray Rice, you’re so full of sh*t, if you fell in dirt you would multiply!
What you did Ray Rice is demonstrate to the world exactly what kind of man you are and what’s really inside you. Now that you have been caught, you are making excuses for your violence by saying you’re sorry, but what you’re really sorry for is that you got caught and your brutal actions against women got you fired.
You’re not even man enough Ray Rice to own up to that! And someone needs to beat you to a pulp so you see what it’s like to be in Janay’s shoes!
Many will say Janay Palmer endures beatings for money, but the fact that domestic violence in America occurs in marriages that lack Rice’s money proves money is not the reason women suffer abuse. Fear is the key factor in every situation. If a husband or boyfriend is violent, women fear them. If men beat women and make threats beyond beatings—they’ll kill you, they’ll kill the kids, or take the kids from you if you leave them, or hurt your parents— abused women fear leaving and bear the abuse.
Sadly, American society has become one where courts side too often with abusive husbands and not battered, or verbally and psychologically (which is just as abusive as physical violence) abused wives, and that fact causes women to endure violence, because they know too often, judges, attorneys, and DCF, will side with violent husbands.
High conflict families are disproportionately represented among the population of those contesting custody and visitation. These cases commonly involve domestic violence, child abuse, and substance abuse. Research indicates that that custody litigation can become a vehicle whereby batterers and child abusers attempt to extend or maintain their control and authority over their victims after separation. Although, research has not found a higher incidence of false allegations of child abuse and domestic violence in the context of custody/visitation, officers of the court tend to be unreasonably suspicious of such claims and that too often custody decisions are based on bad science, misinterpretation of fact, and evaluator bias. As a result, many abused women and their children find themselves re-victimized by the justice system after separation.
Court cases such as Abrams, R., & Greaney, J. (1989). Report of the gender bias study of the Supreme Judicial Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts show that “A 1989 study by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court found that in cases involving custody and visitation litigation: ” “The interests of fathers are given more weight than the interests of mothers and children.” (pp. 62-63).
Janay Palmer is siding with her husband and she is doing it publicly, telling us she doesn’t see her husband’s actions as criminal violence:
To take something away from the man that I love that he has worked his ass off for all his life just to gain ratings is a horrific THIS IS OUR LIFE. What don’t you all get? If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels.
Janay Palmer went on to claim her marriage was wonderful and will “continue to grow and show the world what real love is.” With that, Palmer pledged her and her husband’s loyalty to “Ravensnation.”
I have to question if Palmer really believes what she told us, or, is she so afraid of Rice’s brutal actions and threats, she will defend him in order to keep her own life as well as her child?
Considering the statistics proving abused women side with abusive men out of fear, I believe Palmer’s reasons are fear of Rice and an attempt to protect her child. I only hope someone will save her and her daughter before it’s too late and the next thing we hear from TMZ is Palmer’s daughter calling 9-11, saying daddy killed mommie.
Note: I wrote this piece back in December 2012, but it is still relevant because the anti-gun Brady Bunch would have us all submit to violent thugs versus protecting our lives and children.
As a resident of the state of Connecticut, I can state quite categorically that Connecticut has some of the strictest gun control laws in the United States. Despite those laws, the left insists that if Connecticut imposed stricter bans, Newtown resident Adam Lanza would never have murdered 20 children and seven adults in a mass shooting.
The left continues making that claim, but so far this ideology toward banning guns has never prevented gun violence or stopped monsters from obtaining guns. Anyone determined to commit violent crimes will purchase guns illegally if guns are banned.
Try telling that to leftists, they believe guns are the problem, the left wants guns put away, not the criminally insane, who seem to have more rights than innocent people who have a right to bear arms.
After the Newtown shooting, CNN’s Piers Morgan, who hails from gun free/high crime Britain, is an example of anti-gun leftist ignorance that views guns as the perpetrator, not violent people. Morgan insists gun-free zones prevent gun violence and argued this flawed view with More Guns, Less Crime author John R. Lott who explained that “gun-free” zones attract those seeking gun violence:
Look at the [Aurora] movie theater one, for example. There were seven movie theaters showing the movie “Batman” movie within a 20 minute drive of where the killer lived. Only one of those banned guns. He [the killer] didn’t go to the movie theater closest to his home. He didn’t go to the movie theater with the largest screen. He went to the one movie theater that banned guns. Now if you look at bans generally…In the U.K. and Jamaica, Ireland, island nations that have banned guns, you can’t find a place where murder rates have actually gone down. They have gone up usually by large amounts.
Despite the facts presented, Morgan’s reply to gun bans not preventing gun crimes is it’s “a load of nonsense,” and “Nobody needs one of these [guns] in their home, end of story.”
The left chooses to view mentally unbalanced people as harmless and guns as mentally unbalanced.
Leftist logic has never, in its progressive history, contributed laws preventing demented monsters from committing cold-blooded murder with guns or other weapons. Instead, the left, who decided mentally insane should rehabilitate among society, claim: “[I]if all else failed, such horrors could always be attributed to improper implementation of Progressive programs, reflecting ‘not faulty conceptualization but inadequate funding.’”
Inadequate funding is not the problem. Every violent mass gun spree has been committed by mentally deranged people who methodically plotted violence with intent to murder as many human lives as possible.
The left ignores facts in order to hone in on guns as perpetrators of gun violence. If the mentally derange rehabilitate by committing violence against human beings, don’t blame their violent actions, blame guns! Guns kill people, not crazy people!
That brings us to Adam Lanza. What if Lanza’s mother never owned a gun? Can anti-gun lobbyists guarantee Lanza never would have found a way to illegally purchase guns? Can the left promise that people intent on mass murder will never use bombs to blow up schools or other public places? What about knives? Some crazy people have gone on knife sprees and murdered people. Should we ban knives?
No one can promise us that insane people will not commit violence if guns do not exist. Evil does not alert law enforcement prior to the act, giving details to the plans. Violent people plot murder in secret and gun laws do not stop them from carrying out their intentions.
What about Connecticut gun laws? Connecticut requires that gun owners have permits to carry pistols in public, otherwise, “No state permit is required for the possession of rifles, shotguns or handguns. A person must be twenty-one years of age to possess a handgun.” Furthermore, Connecticut enforces strict background checks on everyone registering to purchase guns. Adam Lanza was 20 years-old, he could not register or purchase handguns, so he stole his mother’s guns after murdering her, because he was insane.
It is unlawful to possess a handgun by a person who has been convicted of a felony; convicted as a delinquent of a serious juvenile offense which includes illegal possession of a controlled substance, negligent homicide, third degree assault, first degree reckless endangerment, second degree unlawful restraint, rioting, or second degree stalking; discharged from custody within the preceding 20 years after acquittal by reason of mental disease or defect; confined by court order for mental illness within the preceding 12 months; subject to a restraining or protective order involving physical force; or an illegal alien. It is unlawful to possess any other firearm by a person who has been convicted of a felony.
Lanza had no criminal record, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was mentally insane and mentally insane people should be locked up, not living freely among us where they can attack us when they eventually, and suddenly, fly off the handle.
As far as “assault weapons” go, Connecticut gun laws state
No person shall possess any “assault weapon” unless that person possessed that firearm before October 1, 1993 and received a certificate of possession from the Connecticut State Police prior to July 1994
When registering in this state, Connecticut law demands “The applicant must successfully complete a handgun safety course approved by the commissioner.”
Connecticut forbids gun owners from storing “any loaded firearm on any premises under his control if” an underage teen or child can gain access to the weapon.” The state requires gun owners to keep guns “secured…in a locked container.”
Even if Nancy Lanza securely stored her guns, firearm laws did not stop her son’s insanity from acting out in violence. A lock-up in a mental health facility would have.
Moreover, it’s illegal in Connecticut to carry firearms on public, private elementary, or secondary school property. But those strict gun laws did not prevent Lanza from entering that school and shooting 27 people to death.
Still, it’s not the criminals’ fault. You see, the violent criminal’s guns should tell the lunatic: “You cannot use me to murder other people, it’s wrong, and I will be forced to take all the blame!”
Facts remain: Evil people will always plot and carry out malevolent deeds. Banning guns, titling guns “assault weapons”, blaming guns for violence and not people, hasn’t prevented murderous lunatics from obtaining guns. Banning guns in America will never prevent illegal gun possession, it will only lead to crimes against the innocent without rights to bare arms.
Government reports say 300 American citizens have joined the enemy to fight the United States. No, Code Pink did not join ISIS so they might become Islamic goddesses. Not that patriotic Americans would be shocked if the pro-Islamic, pro-Palestinian, anti-Semitic, America-hating left wing progressive women did gear up with fully loaded backpacks to bomb the States.
The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials.
In other words, these American terrorists are plotting another 9/11.
Don’t think they are not. What’s the point of joining the enemy unless your intentions are the destruction of everything the enemy hates?
The 300 American terrorists are citizens who hate this nation and side with those who went us destroyed.
Two American terrorists are reported dead: Douglas MacArthur McCain (who was a disgrace to his name), who converted to Islam 10 years-ago, was killed while fighting for ISIS, as well as American Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha of Florida, who was killed while conducting a suicide bombing with al-Nursa Front, an al Qaeda group.
But not all American jihadists are on the battlefield, some are at home in front of their computer aiding the enemy:
A suburban Denver teen fell in love with an ISIS fighter online, vowed to aid his cause in Syria, then was arrested at an airport, federal authorities said. Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, of Arvada, Colorado, was charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization after FBI agents arrested her at Denver International Airport on April 8 as she tried to board a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, according to a U.S. criminal complaint and a supporting affidavit. She allegedly had connecting flights to Istanbul, Turkey, and then to Adana, Turkey, just a few hours’ drive from the Syrian border.
Conley told investigators she would engage in combat against the U.S. if necessary: “I wouldn’t like it, but I would do it,” she said, saying she “joined the U.S. Army Explorers (USAE) to be trained in U.S. military tactics and in firearms” and wanted to train Islamic jihadists in U.S. Military tactics so they could fight and kill American soldiers. When asked why she joined the enemy, Conley said the U.S. Military refused to accept her wearing her Muslim garb required by her Islamic beliefs.
Oh, poor darling little terrorist!
No one is stating the obvious—why these young Americans join the enemy: Other than someone born and raised Islamic, only radical leftists, progressives, convert to Islam and join forces with the enemy, because that has always been the group seeking to crush this nation by any means possible. Joining the U.S. Military is one of the best ways to destroy America.
First it was our education system that progressives destroyed by rewriting our history and retraining our thinking through indoctrination, and then our culture through communism, and now it is the destruction of America by-way-of Islamic terror that has been accepted and tolerated since 9/11 when George W. Bush ignorantly told Americans that Islam was a peaceful religion that had been hijacked by radicals.
Just like Nazis were nothing more than radicalized Catholic choir boys.
Our question to the U.S. Government should be: Will you let these American terrorists return to the states despite their being on terror watch lists?
The government did not deport the non-American terrorist Mohammad Atta who easily entered the U.S. despite being on a terror list. Janet Reno gave Atta and his laptop Constitution Fourth Amendment rights. Atta bombed the World Trade Center.
The government ignored the Boston Bombers until they bombed the Boston Marathon, despite their terror connections overseas. The surviving bomber, glorified by Rolling Stone Magazine, is being treated with kid gloves while the progressive government is removing Christian’s religious rights.
Will the State Department allow American terrorists to reenter the U.S., referring to these brutes as troubled youth in need of counseling and given more constitutional rights and fair trials than loyal citizens? The answer is yes.
Trained terrorists only return to the United States to attack and kill Americans in the name of Islam or other causes of hate and death.
The citizenship of these American terrorists should be removed on the grounds of treason and every one of them should be hunted down and killed before they slaughter Americans on U.S. soil.
Wake up people. Progressives hate this country and everything it stands for. Don’t be shocked when you see your neighbor’s Occupy Wall Street brat joining ISIS.
