Jeanette Rishell And ‘Weapons Of Ass Destruction’

By Greg L | 21 July 2009 | Jeanette Rishell, 50th HOD District | 20 Comments

There are lots of young folks out there hoping to be a campaign manager for a Delegate race in Virginia.  It might not pay that well, but it’s a good resume builder for a political career, so candidates get quite a deep pool of applicants to choose from.  Going through the process of selecting a campaign manager, a candidate is normally going to look into the background and experience of a potential employee pretty thoroughly to make sure the person in charge of their political future matches them well and isn’t going to potentially cause problems for their candidacy.  So one really has to wonder why Jeanette Rishell chose Ilana Kaplan-Shain to be her campaign manager this election cycle.  Wasn’t there anyone else out there willing to work for her?

Ms. Kaplan-Shain has a rather interesting resume.  When she attended Rochester University she managed to get elected to the student body government and had a rather interesting tenure that drew some rather critical local press attention.  There was a question about what student activity fees would be used for, and Ms. Kaplan-Shain decided it would be a good idea for the university library to stock such educational videos in the university library as “Debbie Does Dallas, Deep Throat, Sum of All Rears (a gay porn), Genital Hospital, Barely Legal No. 28, Gang Bang 2, Just Over 18 No. 4, Weapons of Ass Destruction, Young as They Cum, and Young Ripe Melons” according to the Rochester City Newspaper.  After the student senate voted on this, there was only one student representative who would go on record to explain how this kind of exploitative “diversity” was a good idea, and it was none other than Ms. Kaplan-Shain.

Sophomore Senator Ilana Kaplan-Shain, who reportedly voted in favor of the resolution, says the Times’ account of the vote was inaccurate, in that the resolution in question “was a vote to not officially say no yet” to the idea of adding pornographic titles. “What it was is to leave the option open that we would possibly include [pornographic] DVDs in the future,” she says. “That’s what I voted yes to.”

With students in control of the DVD collection, UR may become one of the few, if not the only, universities to offer students skin flicks in its library.

“Not officially saying no” sounds a lot like Obama-speak for saying “yes” to me.

So here’s Jeanette Rishell pouring through a pile of resumes from applicants hoping to manage her campaign, and she’s going through some standard due diligence ensuring that none of these people have done anything that would cause controversy, and she runs across this applicants rather unusual past.  You know she had to run through this, because no utter idiot is going to neglect to at least do a cursory google search on the name of their potential campaign manager.  So she undoubtably ran across this and figured something along the lines of “hey, a little hard-core porn paid for out of mandatory student activity fees isn’t a big deal!” and then decided to hire the hard-core porn supporter.

How incredibly out of touch can you be.  How does having a hard-core porn supporter working for you as a campaign manager square with all this feminist rhetoric Jeanette Rishell espouses?  How is the electorate going to judge your decision-making skills when out of all the people you can hire as a campaign manager, you pick the one that says with her vote ‘bring on Weapons of Ass Destruction!’  Incredible. Jeanette Rishell is either completely stupid or stunningly incompetent.  After seeing her last two campaigns, it’s really hard to tell which.

Now perhaps I’m overreacting here, and titles like the one at left have really become mainstream in America, and constitute a vital part of the education of our college students that I don’t fully appreciate.  Maybe involuntary fees collected from students should be used to ensure such cinematic icons are easily available for the academic enrichment of our students, who otherwise won’t have the opportunity to appreciate the artistic and philosophical value of watching a vulnerable young woman have her ‘ass’, well, ‘destroyed’.  College has apparently changed quite a bit since I attended, and there could be some changes I don’t fully appreciate.

Yet in a political campaign in Virginia, I kind of doubt a candidate wants to spend time trying to explain that reasoning, but now Jeanette Rishell, we’re waiting for an explanation here.  Really.  Why did you choose someone to run your campaign with this kind of background?

    There are many off colour joke available for this situation, but I’ll be good and not tell them. After all this is a family oriented web site.

    This is quite funny as Mrs. Rishell has been promoting herself as a family values candidate! Of course this is the same person who sends out messages that she our “representative” in the community and that she is a professional politcal consultant.
    Who elected her our representative; I think she has lost all of her runs for elective office. Who hired her as a political consultant? Just last year she worked for mortgage company who seemed to promtoe sub prime lending, that seems to qualify her as a political consultant.
    Now she wants to be a Delegate in the State House. This is her third attempt. With such a strong record of success, why not?

    Hey! She is a family values candidate! She wants EVERY family to have porn in their homes. If that’s not about family, I don’t know what is.

    *rolls eyes*

    Brings new meaning to Humpty Dumpty…

    I’d like to think hiring this woman would disqualify Rishell from public office. Then I think of three words:

    Senator. Al. Franken.

    When Rishell loses, this young “lady” can go work at MVC Late Nite Video. She appears to know the product quite well. Need a solid opinion on what flick to rent to get your girl primed and ready for a little carnal knowledge? Ask a woman. Better if it’s a woman who appreciate the “cinematic virtues” of this type of “entertainment”.

    Seriously though, do we need a better explanation as to why porn is everywhere in our society than this? If college students (like Ms. Kaplan-Shane while she was at Rochester University) are stocking porn in their library, it not only condones it as being sanctioned by the University but also makes it freely accessible. No stigmas, no money changing hands, just a library card and you can view whatever you’d like. And remember, the majority of the student population in the undergraduate programs are under the age of 21. This is a sad example of what young people in our society are up against… people without a moral compass who make porn accessible to them in their library like Ms. Kaplan-Shane. Great way to background check your employees Rishell. As usual, your decision making skills are stellar. Ridiculous.

    As a parent of a young girl, this illustrates one of my greatest fears. Part of the Liberal-Secular-Athiest-Progressive agenda is to sexualize girls at a young age through the mass-media, then dial that in to even more hardcore exposure as they approach adulthood. It appears to have worked with this young woman. Jeanette Rishell loves to run on her “Mother and Grandmother” credentials, and uses her daughters and grand-daughters in her campaign literature, door-knocking, website, speaches, etc.

    I would like an explanation here too, and I will ask her or her campaign representative how she feels about this. Is this in line with her much-touted “family values”? Does she agree that the study of pornography in a public university, paid for by compulsary student-derived fees is of real “educational value” Is this why she advocated mandatory public-school pre-K for our children where they can be exposed to liberal “age-appropriate” sex-ed? How does this jive with her support of her church, the BRUU, recent sponsorship of a gay, lesbian, transgender prom? How does her opposition to the marriage amendment banning gay marriage in Virginia support family values? I wonder why she’s not defending Sarah Palin, who lives the family values she preaches.
    I will ask her, but if her past conduct and statements are any indication, she’ll lie and say she is for traditional family values. My guess is she could care less what kind of deviant sex videos her campaign manager voted to expose her fellow students to. Afterall, Jeanette and Ilana are kindered spirits, Comrades-in-arms in the struggle to destroy traditional values of these here United States of America, in favor of what they, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank et al want to establish: the USSA, the Union of Socialist States of Amerika!

    “Seriously though, do we need a better explanation as to why porn is everywhere in our society than this?”

    The reason it is a very successful multi-billion dollar business and is everywhere in our society is because there is a market for it. It is the free market that dictates the amount of porn. It is there because so many consumers vote for it with their dollars.

    It is also there because we are blessed with the Bill of Rights. So far the Bible thumping, “family values” hypocrites haven’t been able to repeal the First Amendment to the Constitution. Try as they might.

    I would agree that using student fees to purchase pornography is not a proper use of those fees. However, I think the students who pay those fees ought to be able to determine, through their elected student government, how the fees they pay should be used.

    Also the standard “protect the children” dodge that we always hear from the fascists when they are trying to take our freedom away certainly doesn’t apply here. These are college students. They are all over eighteen. They are adults.

    Libertarian: Oh dear… you’re calling me a fascist … seriously? Not that I am surprised that you are name calling. My thoughts about protecting young people from pornography obviously have upset you. I will chose the high road and not take the bait on the name calling.

    My concerns are based on the omnipresence of porn in our society. It began in seedy movie theaters and has progressed into our public libraries, video stores, homes, and now, to my absolute dismay, our universities. Porn benefits no one, except those who make money off of it. Regarding your thoughts on porn being a multi-billion dollar industry, you are indeed correct. There is no arguing that there is demand for a myriad of things in society that are bad for society as a whole (think illegal drugs). Money drives the engine of many processes in our country, good or bad. It doesn’t make it good for society nor does it mean that we should stand back and say “ok” to it being easily accessible to young people and sanctioned by universities.

    I can go through the many ills that porn causes society, including the correlation between porn viewing and violence against women and children. I could talk about the objectification of women and how it undermines the efforts that women have made to be treated equally. But, I think you probably have already heard these facts before. You certainly have the right to chose not to take the time to actually contemplate and care about the damage porn does, but don’t dismiss those who do care as being “bible thumping hypocrites” and “fascists”.

    You are correct that Freedom of Speech is something to be honored and respected, in the spirit that our founding fathers intended it to be, however. I doubt that protecting porn was what they were referring to. I would suspect their motivations had more to do with protecting the rights of our citizens to speak freely about issues like having been oppressed through suppressive taxation measures and tarring and feathering by King George III.

    I am a parent and a concerned one. I indeed am “fed up in Manassas” about society’s passivity on this issue. There are many other people who share my concerns and guess what, many of them are democrats. (Democrats are parents too you know!)

    Porn is damaging and our taxpayer dollars and young people’s student fees shouldn’t be paying to supply it to children and those who are just stepping into the beginnings of adulthood.

    Who would you expect a multiple loser like Rishell to get as a campaign manager? Nobody, even liberal dems, that wants a serious political career is going to link up with her. The PWC Democrats should be ashamed, not for Kaplan-Shane, (a girl has gotta start somewhere) but for picking someone to run that is a complete whack job.
