“Fighting for Air” is the title of the book Trotta wrote in 1994. She is still fighting for air. Only this time she has rendered herself irrelevant, and shown herself to be nothing more than a Republican whore. She now speaks of women who have been “raped too much” as one who has been.
Liz Trotta used to be brilliant. She was the perfect example of what a journalist should be and she was. She was the first female correspondent in Vietnam. She served two tours of duty. She accompanied GI’s in the jungles of Vietnam. She says she is still haunted by that experience. And this make me wonder if she remembers her time of being “raped too much”. Does she speak from experience? Really, the only woman travelling with GI’s in the jungle. Men who haven’t seen a real woman in who knows when. What did she expect?
You would think that her experience would be expressed in compassion and support for women in the Military or women in general who have been assaulted or raped. Instead she justifies rape because they are in close contact with men. That they deserve whatever happens to them. If it is good enough for her, then it has to be good enough for the rest of us. After all, rape ain’t rape anymore.
She was always conservative, but she never let her politics interfere with her reporting. Now she is a whore for the “Red” states. She is still fighting for air.
She must long for the good old days of her youth.
