I had no idea we were such monsters.

On MSNBC’s “Martin Bashir” on Friday, MSNBC contributor Karen Finney said the GOP has given the green light for men to commit violence on “certain kinds of women.”
Finney was reacting to the House GOP’s hesitance to renew the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), legislation that would allow federal penalties for certain acts of domestic violence.
Republicans have raised jurisdictional concerns about how VAWA would apply to crimes committed on Indian reservations, as well as objections about protections the bill would offer same-sex couples and illegal immigrants.
“The Republicans in Congress … essentially are sending a message that says it’s OK to beat up certain kinds of women: Native-American women, women who are in this country illegally,” Finney said.
