Liz Trotta, a pundit for Fox News, has been making some interesting and offensive comments lately about rape occurring in the military. She made the comments while appearing on a Sunday show on the Fox News Network.

Trotta made the comments in response to an announcement from the military that it would be allowing women to work closer to the front lines of battle. Eric Shawn, the host of the show, was speaking with Trotta when the comments were issued. Trotta claimed that feminists want “to be warriors and victims at the same time.”

Trotta also decided to quote a report released by the Pentagon recently that said crimes of the sexual nature committed by army personnel have increased by 64 percent in the past six years. Trotta then went on to say the following:


“I think they have actually discovered there is a difference between men and women. And the sexual abuse report says that there has been, since 2006, a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults. Now, what did they expect? These people are in close contact, the whole airing of this issue has never been done by Congress, it’s strictly been a question of pressure from the feminists.”

Trotta added to her comments by claiming that feminists have asked for way too much money for the funding of programs for victims of sexual abuse and other sexual crimes. “You have this whole bureaucracy upon bureaucracy being built up with all kinds of levels of people to support women in the military who are now being raped too much,” Trotta said.

The host of the show then argued that the funded programs are important to protect victims of sexual abuse. Trotta then continued to put her foot in her mouth by saying that the military’s job is “to defend and protect us, not the people who were fighting the war.”
