It appears that the right has managed to find someone too misogynist for Sean Hannity — and it’s a woman. Hannity happily brings Jesse Lee Peterson, who thinks women shouldn’t have the right to vote, on his show regularly and is on the board of his organization. But National Review columnist A.J. Delgado went on his radio show and said that Ray Rice was the real victim in that elevator.
Delgado argued, however, that Janay Rice did not consider herself a victim, “and some might even say, watching that video, Ray Rice is the bigger victim of domestic violence here.”She added that liberals were “patronizing” Janay Rice by calling her a victim.
“We know the truth, though, because we’ve got the video tape,” Hannity observed. “But you said he’s a victim because why? Because she slapped him and spit on him?”
“He absolutely is!” Delgado replied. “And some might say I’m defending Ray Rice here. Maybe I am, but if you watch the video, the video actually makes him look better than he did before. She repeatedly attacked him. He’s a victim — flat-out fact — of domestic violence. Only after she’s hit him several times and spit on him does he finally hit back.
“And she happens because of that blow to knock herself out on the railing,” she continued. “That was an unintended consequence, I’m sure.”
