Ray Rice: Domestic Violence Whipping Boy

September 9, 2014

An unfortunate altercation has allowed the Illuminati
to trot out one of their favorite hobby horses,
domestic violence.

"How do you claim to empower women when you take the decision to prosecute out of their hands?"

(Tuesday statement from Janay Palmer below vindicates my argument.)

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

The NFL suspended Baltimore Raven running back Ray Rice "indefinitely" Monday after a video surfaced showing him knocking his then-fiance unconscious in an altercation in an Atlantic City casino elevator February 15, 2014.

Rice had been suspended for two games and fined $500,000. He had been charged with aggravated assault and was facing legal consequences. However the severity of the punch and the image of him dragging her unconscious body out of the elevator touched off a firestorm which resulted in the suspension which probably will end his football career.

I do not condone men beating up their women or vice versa. I find what Rice did repugnant. However, as usual, the Illuminati media are using this case to advance their heterophobic agenda designed to instill fear of men in women.

They tailor everything to their agenda. When Michael Brown was killed by a white cop, he was a Black man, better to promote racial division. But Ray Rice is not a Black man, part of a hip hop culture that encourages domestic violence and makes millions for the Illuminati. He is just a "man" better to demonize men and promote homosexuality.

When a man preys on young boys, he is a "pedophile." He is never a "homosexual" because homosexuality is good.


Women attack men as often as men attack women but you won't hear that now. You'll hear that a man kills a woman every six days, as one TV newscast reported.

You also won't hear that six weeks after this altercation, Janay Palmer married Ray Rice. They had been going together for six years and have a three-year-old child. You won't hear that Janay took some responsibility for the altercation and asked the public to forgive them and leave them alone.

It seems to me that prosecution should depend on a woman's complaint. How do you claim to empower women when this decision is taken out of their hands and placed in the hands of the marriage-hating Masonic state?

How is society protecting and respecting women like Janay Palmer by ignoring their wishes, taking away their husband's livelihood, and even putting him in jail?  This is typical of the way feminism has stabbed women in the back. It is designed to destroy the institution of marriage.

Rice and Palmer had expressed contrition and mended their ways. But political correctness and media hysteria are not going to allow a second chance.  "Tolerance" for the politically correct.  Zero tolerance for them.

The bottom line is that heterosexuality is based on an exchange of female power for male power expressed as love. If that loving male power is sometimes expressed physically, and it's what the woman respects and wants, who are we as a society that condones bombing helpless civilians into the stone age, to tell them how to live?

There is plenty of protection for a woman who wants out of an abusive relationship. She will usually end up with everything, especially if there is a child.

Ultimately, domestic violence hysteria is about emasculating men and wrecking marriages, not empowering women.

Statement Tuesday by Janay Palmer:

"I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," she wrote. "But to have to accept the fact that it's reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is 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. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! [Baltimore] Ravensnation we love you!"

First Comment from Dee:

You know, I've seen, over the past week or so, dozens of on-air reports about Rice and his now-wife on multiple networks. I say now-wife because no matter what we in the public think, she married the man. And in not a single one of these reports did they fail to report that this was his "then-fiancee", or that they had subsequently married. Yet not a single report questioned the fact that since they still got hitched, perhaps there might be more to this than met the eye, and the hysteria needed a cap on it.
Interestingly, no matter which network you tuned in to, you got the same buzz words.  It didn't matter what channel you picked, you were subjected to the same opinions voiced as "news".

I was struck by the feeling that, no matter how much I was revolted by the video of Rice clobbering his woman, there was a niggling at the back of my head screaming "OVERKILL".  I did note that he picked up her dropped shoe for her when exiting the elevator, which told me he was personally horrified by what he had done... but we are not privy to what happened afterward. All we see is what went on in the elevator before the door closed. We are left to speculate. Did he haul her off by the hair like a cave man? Did he pick her up and try to undo the damage? We don't know; we are only given one side, incomplete evidence, with which to judge.
And then, they got married. Hmm.
Here in Canada, police are empowered to lay charges in a case of domestic violence, if they see any sign of physical altercation, and will do so. The details, presumably, are to be ironed out after the fact. But victims are no longer allowed to be the decision-maker as to whether or not their abuser goes free: the police can, at their will, override their refusal and lay charges anyway.
That law was ostensibly put into place because of the many women who are experiencing what is called "Battered Wife Syndrome" (note that a "syndrome" can have many symptoms, depending on what sort of abuse is being inflicted); such women tend not to lay charges, and the reality of that is quite frightening. Some of these women die for that mistake.
So on which side of caution should we err here?  Well, for my part I think that the enforcement issue is moot:  I'd much rather see a man (or woman) go through the humiliation of being charged and having to sort all that out in front of a judge, than bury another woman who stupidly thought it was all her fault and took back her apologetic abuser with open arms.  And that, for me, is a no-brainer.
But, that said,  this Rice thing is reminiscent of the recent kerfuffle over the LA Clippers owner, Donald Sterling, forced to sell his team, vilified by half the planet, for words he used in a private conversation. While ripping the man's life apart publicly, nobody bothered to mention that while his words may have been abhorrent, they were indeed private, until little Missy there chose to make them public. "Hell hath no fury", indeed.
So my beef with the whole thing is this: We are dealing here with a public evisceration of prominent people for not toeing the line, I think, more so than furthering the feminism plot (which I do not deny exists).  The same thing has essentially been done to two major sports figures, and although their offences were very different, the common denominator was that they stepped out of line; they did not conform.  And if there is one thing we know the elitists want of the sheeple, it is conformity... to whatever they say.
I remember the old movie "They Live" from about 1990, starring wrestler-turned-actor Roddy Piper, and the words he saw when he put on the strange sunglasses he found in an alleyway:  Words like "Conform" and "Obey" were posted subliminally everywhere.  And in my humble opinion,  I'm thinking that Mr. Rice and Mr. Sterling were exemplified and scapegoated in terms of how "honorable" people (i.e. the sporting community, the NBA, the NFL etc.) handle those who do not conform.
Millions of pro-sports fans have been intimately affected by this: Conform to the norm, or the world will turn against you! Talk about using peer pressure to make a point!

my comment to Al Thompson:

Dear Al: discern this: they are ALL lying: Good cop, bad cop, NATO/Russia, Putin/Obama – all for one and one for all. “By deception we will make war” is their motto. Red pill/ Blue pill – both lead down the rabbit hole, on the road of no return. The dialect is meant to entrap you – body, mind and soul.

Opt for TRUTH, which is neither/nor in the case of the Hegelian choices offered. Believe in God and the holy spirit and truth will be revealed to you.

If young people, who have no other options, opt not to go into the military – they will be drafted. The draft is not lawful (thou shalt not kill), which most are not cognizant of. Truly, our ignorance is our undoing.

Warren said (September 10, 2014):

f you closely watch the video of Ray and Janay domesic violence video, it was Janay who hit Ray in the face first. Who was the initial victum here? Just sayin'.

Sam said (September 10, 2014):

This afternoon, I noticed in the waiting room of my doctor’s surgery a somewhat out of date advertisement / overt warning for men about to watch football’s World Cup (a photograph of this is attached). The advert warns men that they are more likely to be violent when watching sporting tournaments and they could lose their job and children if they did so. In the entire waiting room, there was no equivalent advert for male victims of female domestic violence, let alone an overt warning for those women consciously aware of their propensity for violence, such was aimed at men in this advert. If all women were non-violent as the media and public information stance assumes, then there would be no violent crimes committed by women, which is obviously not the case - and far fewer women in prison as a result. It begs the question, as to whether there should be strict gender equality rules applied to this type of public advertisement, so as not to mislead the public. It makes you wonder if this is designed to happen or whether it is a mistake; by virtue of decisions farmed out to those who apply majority rule statistics to inform all their decisions (for instance ‘during sports tournaments men are more violent than women’ – this might only be 1% more violent or 100% - we’ll never know). So there appears to be a fight on for the truth in all quarters; often, the Huxleyan vision of the truth drowned in a sea of irrelevance, is realized.

At least these matters are being brought to light. The war for truth reminds me of the Ferdinand Lassalle quotation in Arthur Koestler’s book, Darkness at Noon: “Show us not the aim without the way. For ends and means on earth are so entangled that changing one, you change the other too; Each different path brings other ends in view.”

TMZ - which aired the casino tape is run by Harvey Levin, who is Gay.

John said (September 9, 2014):

Al Thompson is spot on.

Apparently, she spit on the man face; she got what she deserved at the time. Incident cost him his career with the raven's. Even obama chimed in.

Hopefully, Rice can make a living in the future. See Oprah to offer some form of formal closure on national TV. Do not advocate the abuse of ladies but call them the way I see it.

Al Thompson said (September 9, 2014):

hate to see their problems being aired publicly. But after watching the video, she was the one provoking the ultimate knockout punch.

While that was an overreach
by Ray, the fact is that his wife went into bitch mode and wouldn't let up. I've been through this myself, and it takes an enormous amount of self control not to hit the woman. So if women want to go into psycho-bitch mode, she's risking destroying the whole relationship, ruining the family, and wrecking the future of their children.

The real problem for the Rice family is where do they go from here? His career is destroyed by the NFL. I don't watch football any longer because of the hypocrisy of putting a man out of work, while the NFL condoned abuse of drug taking and is currently being sued. How is this man going to get a job with all that publicity. This is a recipe to destroy his prospect in supporting his family.

The embarrassment alone should be enough punishment for this couple. But as usual with the satanic state apparatus, repentance does not mean anything.

Dan said (September 9, 2014):

Hm. Rap fans were aleady consumed with the ongoing psychodrama that ensued from THIS elevator celebrity violence last winter.
Only here, it's BEYONCE's sister attacking rapper JAY Z.

I've been seeing the soap opera presentation unfold for months on the tabloid racks at the grocery store checkout lines.

These are psychodramas. Starring in them is part of the deal for fame and fortune in Illuminati world, for celebrities.

"Celebrity violence caught in elevators" seems to be a media trend.

Maybe they'll make a series out of the genre.

Jim said (September 9, 2014):

Except for reasons of self defense, violence against anyone is repugnant. But the way this is being played out in the media is also repugnant.

Ray Rice is being portrayed as a he-devil and Janay Palmer is portrayed as the poor, helpless, unwitting victim of a mean, mean man. What isn't being said, is that more often than not, women are the antagonizers and instigators of what ends up being a violent confrontation. Ms. Palmer admits as much.

Feminism gives women a free license to be a horrid bitches who often dare their husbands/boyfriends to hit them. When he does, he's now the bad guy and is robbed of his children and money. I've seen this happen to many men.

But it's not only men who can be violent.

My ex-wife beat the crap out of me twice. Once was because I didn't fix her a lunch... she wouldn't tell me what she wanted so when I didn't prepare anything she waylaid me.

I can't remember what the second beating was for but I'm sure it was something just as stupid.
