Never mind that America voted. One professor at the University of Arizona has published a tirade comparing Donald Trump as president to rape, and declares that she did not consent.
The woman, Jess Kapp, says in her blog that she is the associate department head and a senior lecturer in the geosciences department at the University of Arizona.
She wrote the condemning piece against President-elect Trump in her online blog on Tuesday, using such accusations as “gang rape” and “plundering our country.”
Kapp claims that Trump has invited some of the “most dangerous and hateful men” to join him in the highest ranks of the nation and is “single-handedly unleashing a violent seizure of our basic human rights by multiple assailants.”
With professors spouting allegations such as this, is it any wonder thousands of students have taken to the streets? The University of Arizona is located in Tucson, Arizona.
Below is the entire post from Kapp’s blog:
Rape is defined as an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse. It is to take, or carry off, by force.
A violation. A despoiling.
Donald Trump as president of this country—a country that is supposed to be built on the principle of freedom—is rape.
I, for one, do not consent.
He whispers promises of protection with crossed fingers behind his back, and while we prepare to give him a chance, turning our heads from his proven history of lies, he will attack us bareback and ride us until we tear. And just when we think it is going to let up, he will escalate the assault to gang rape.
Yes. I said gang rape.
With invitations to some of the most dangerous and hateful men to join him in the highest ranks of this nation, he is single-handedly unleashing a violent seizure of our basic human rights by multiple assailants. He is asking his buddies to come in and watch. He is telling them to join in and keep the party rolling.
He is plundering our country. He is carrying our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness off by force. This is the definition of rape.
It is impossible to pursue happiness when we fear for our jobs, our rights, our freedoms, our planet, and our children’s futures. Donald Trump telling us, “Do not be afraid,” is as the rapist telling his victim, “don’t make a sound.” Donald Trump gathering his group of closest advisors—a group filled with those who believe we are not all equal—is as the rapist inviting his buddies in to take part in the plunder. He has this country hog-tied on the bed and is getting ready to have his way with it.
His cabinet will be the friends who not only know what he does and keep his secrets, but also cheer him on and believe he is justified. There will be no checking and balancing. There will be no voice of reason over the voices of insanity. There will only be a boys club, drunk on victory, grabbing this nation by the pussy whether we like it or not and drunk-tweeting about their debauchery with pride as it happens.
Make no mistake: This is rape.
We cannot be the nation that stands quietly by and says, let’s give him a chance. I wanted to—I wanted to go high, choose to be hopeful, and give the man that (fewer) people voted into office a chance to lead. But in the span of a few days, for me, he has lost that chance. He gave it up the minute he invited a white supremacist domestic abuser into his inner circle. He gave it up the minute he appointed his pro gay-conversion-therapy homophobic VP to lead his transition team. He gave it up the minute he even considered a creationist to lead up education in this country.
We cannot give him a chance.
He is raping us. He is raping this country. Yes, he is in only in the early phases, luring us into his dark man cave with promises of something different. But he will continue to whisper, “Do not be afraid,” until he gets a strong hold. Then, he will sneer, “Do not say a word.” He will not stop until we are too frightened to say no, too confused to shove him back, or too desensitized to fight him off. And if he loses his political erection he will call on his man-tribe of hate to keep up the assault until he is satisfied that we are beaten.
We cannot be silent. With our silence we say that we do not oppose racism, that we do not oppose homophobia, that we do not oppose misogyny, that we do not oppose white supremacy, that we do not oppose suppression of basic human freedoms.
That we do not oppose rape.
Can we afford to stand by and watch him take this beautiful country behind the dumpster and force his half-flaccid agenda on it, silently hoping he doesn’t bring it to completion? Can we afford to watch as he and his group of bros take turns tearing apart the rights those before us fought so hard for?
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Does the foundation of this country, as stated in the very first lines of the constitution, mean nothing?
It’s time to fight for justice, domestic tranquility, the common defense, general welfare, and the blessings of liberty, for all people of this country, regardless of race, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, age, education level, or anything else that makes us different from one another.
It’s time to say no to this rape.
Sure enough, hundreds of University of Arizona students marched in a protest against Trump this week:
