About that rape image

It was put out, assumed to be real, then revealed to be from a satire site. So, this is interesting. Via Kevin.

    Did Kevin take that screen shot himself? Given that Snopes is repeating Brady Campaign’s denial that they posted it on their page, I’d love to find someone credible to back up the screen shot.

  2. SayUncle Says:

    He said a commenter left that screen cap.

  3. Lazy Bike Commuter Says:

    Yeah, Snopes still says it’s false, but they are just taking the Brady campaign’s word for it at this point. No way to REALLY know for sure, but I sure as hell don’t trust them considering all the lies they have been caught in.

  4. ExurbanKevin Says:

    The post is also updated with a link tothis online image analyzerto see if the screen cap was manipulated, and it comes up clean.

    Well, the Brady’s likely haven’t posted on their website the absolutely real quote from the absolutely real T-shirt:

    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    I haven’t used Facebook in over a year, but it’s my understanding that recent changes allow pictures tagged with “Brady Campaign” to automatically load on the Brady’s wall timeline, without their consent.

  7. wizardpc Says:

    and if you look closely, you can see that the link posted by Brady Campaign and the picture are two separate events on the timeline.

    I think.

    Wizardpc. That’s an astonishing claim of a high-handed lack of control for Facebook subscribers. Why would Facebook do that? Is that something unique to Brady Campaign, or does one have to opt in to that feature or opt out? I can’t imagine making people opt out; think of the opportunity to post racy photoshopped pictures of the hated Sarah Palin on a Sarah Palin Facebook page, or of George Bush. . .
