This Fox Host Says Rape Never Happens In College [Candy Dish]

The Frisky reports, “Fox’s “The Five” host Bob Beckel. When discussing Colorado Democrat Joe Salazar’s comments about keeping guns off campus by saying that on-campus call boxes and rape whistles should suffice to protect against rape, Beckel asked, ‘When was the last time you heard about rape on campus?'” Wow, people really just speak without thinking, research or common sense, huh? How can a “news” host be completely unaware of all the college rape cases that have been reported on the news? Thankfully his co-hosts were quick to shut him the hell up. It’s unbelievable to me that people still don’t believe rape happens. Get the full story here.

    I'm just glad the other folks on screen called him on it.

  2. /sigh says:

    He's not a Fox host, dimwits. He's a Democrat invited on the show as a guest.

    1. emeraldgritty says:

      He is a cohost, if you read the original article linked in the post he is clearly described as, " During yesterday’s episode of Fox’s The Five, liberal co-host Bob Beckel stunned his colleagues by doubting the existence of rape on campus."

      Being a liberal co-host, doesn't mean he's not a host on Fox.

    2. Kelsey says:

      How about instead of attacking Fox, we talk about how a member of the Democrat party, which is supposed to represent women's rights among other ideals, is making ignorant, offensive, and sexist statements.

    3. emeraldgritty says:

      I don't recall attacking Fox. I only recall pointing out the disturbing comments of one of their hosts while also mentioning that I was glad his colleagues (who also work for Fox, presumably) were there to shut him down.

      Pointing out where he works isn't an attack, it's providing information.

    4. Kelsey says:

      Let's be serious here, this is a liberal website and that's cool because I am 100% pro-women's rights. However, that being said, I also have a lot of conservative ideals. Why are we talking about the Fox co-host when this entire situation started when a Democrat started running his mouth about how women could be wrong about their natural instincts. Rep. Salazar's comments were highly offensive and I'm not saying Beckel was right, because he obviously is just as wrong, but I remember the hell this website gave Todd Akin after his legitimate rape comments and this is the first I've read on here about Salazar. Is that because Akin is a Republican and Salazar is a Democrat? I don't know, you tell me.

    5. emeraldgritty says:

      That isn't why. Conversations like this about rape are generally irresponsible and wrong, and I'd be just as quick to point out a Democrat for being incorrect (I am registered independent) as a Republican because the problem is male patriarchy (in this case) not the party system.

      The reason why Beckel's comments are being singled out is because they are so absurd. He is essentially denying that rape even happens.

      We recently posted a piece written by a Republican, by one of our writers Molly, about how she is bummed about democratic students poke fun of her.

      Though, many of the writers have liberal views we don't exclude Republican ones. It may seem imbalanced because women generally have more liberal views since the Republican party (currently) is backing us up against an ideological wall. We have mostly women writers, obviously, so naturally our views will seep into the writing.

      If Republicans (in office, there are plenty in real life who do not share their positions) were a lot more progressive about civil rights issues then it wouldn't feel like we are always picking on them because we wouldn't have to.

    6. Kelsey says:

      I agree with that, and I read that article when it was posted. All I was trying to say is that I felt that Salazar should have had more blame placed on him. When men in power make statements like this it is so infuriating. I just felt like maybe the article should have been titled "Bob Beckel says Rape…" instead of just stamping Fox News on it. The individuals need to be held accountable for their statements.

    7. Kelsey says:

      Wow, my comments need to be approved? Considering I wasn't using vulgarity or personally attacking you, I'd call that censorship if I didn't know better.

    8. Emerald Pellot says:

      All comments need to be approved. Relax.

      Sometimes random comments get flagged for approval. It's our commenting system, cool your tits.

    10. Kelsey says:

      Just seemed convenient, that's all. You don't have to be so crude.

    He actually IS a host on the show. It's called The Five. He is one of the five co-hosts.
