Liz Trotta apparently doesn't have any remorse about her statements that John wrote about last week, where she said that women in the military should expect to be raped, and rather than apologize, she decided to double down and blame the liberals and feminists for her woes.

Via Raw Story -- In labored clarification, Fox contributor castigates military’s ‘fake heroism’:

Appearing on the Fox News show America’s News HQ, contributor Liz Trotta attempted to clarify remarks she made earlier this month that became fodder for The Daily Show, during which host Jon Stewart summarized that she did not want the military helping women who’ve been “raped too much.

Unfortunately for the former Washington Times editor, what she actually said isn’t going to make the controversy go away — but then, that may have been the point.

After suggesting that the issue of women in military roles has “never gotten a fair and open hearing,” Trotta went on to say: “The political correctness infecting the Pentagon has resulted in silly and dishonest fairy tales about female heroism,” she said. “Has anyone forgotten the Jessica Lynch story?”

“There are countless other stories of fake heroism or exaggerated prowess in which women are the stars, many of them tailored for The New York Times and its agenda to promote militant feminism, no matter what the truth,” Trotta added.

And here's more via Mediaite -- Fox’s Liz Trotta Clarifies Remarks About Women In The Military:

Later in her appearance, Trotta noted that:

The military is not a social services operation, or a testing ground for gender wars. It is a fighting machine. Women are not as strong as men. Their instincts and reactions in crises are markedly different. There’s a reality the left will not face: biology is not destiny.

“I certainly did not say all military men are rapists,” she added. “I believe that the environment of combat, by definition, sets up the situation where basic instincts rule. Any scientist will tell you that testosterone rules.”
