WASHINGTON – The contentious House oversight hearings last week of the NSA’s surveillance activities highlighted two opposing interpretations of what constitutes legal activity. House Intelligence Committee chair Mike Rogers (R-MI) explored this disconnect while questioning American University law professor Stephen Vladeck, eventually coming to the logical conclusion that a woman could not be raped if she was not aware that she was being raped.
Rogers began his questions noting that nobody had come forward in ten years with specific complaints of their privacy being violated by the NSA’s activities. “[That] clearly indicates that something must be doing right. Somebody must be doing something exactly right,” he said. “You can’t have your privacy violated if you don’t know your privacy is being violated.”
Vladeck then explained that if a tree falls in a forest, it makes a sound whether anyone sees it fall or not. This analogy seemed to shock Rogers, who replied, “Well that’s a new interesting standard in the law. We’re going to have this conversation… but we’re going to have wine, because that’s going to get a lot more interesting.”
Vladeck then pressed Rogers to explain how far his concept of “it’s not illegal if you don’t get caught” would go. “If nobody knows you’ve done anything wrong, what’s the harm?” Rogers responded. “I’d say pretty much the sky’s the limit. Stalking, burglary, even rape.”
“Rape?” asked a clearly stunned Vladeck.
“Sure. If a guy has sex with a woman who doesn’t know they’re having sex, it’s not really rape, is it? She doesn’t know what’s happening, so she’s not creating any bad memories or experiencing any trauma,” explained Rogers. “Say a woman’s in a coma. What does she care if some guy has sex with her? That’s not rape.
“Hell,” he added. “It might even snap her out of her coma and she’d be grateful.”
How many women has he not raped in this manner?

Rogers is a fucking moron. EDIT: Thank you for the heads up, Keith Bows. But it is a safe wager that somewhere in America, someone actually believes it’s not rape if the woman is unconscious.
This man makes me sick!!! I’m wondering how many women he’s had sex with who were in an unconscious state. Also,
how many other crimes he’s committed that nobody knows about. I believe he’s a criminal and so are the rest of the ”TEA BAGGERS’ who made him the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee? I bet he calls himself a Christian.
This is SATIRE.
he said this out loud…in public..would he say this bullshit in from of his mother or sister or daughter?
.If Rogers had not said Another Horifically Stupid thing about rape, about which GOP men apparently STILL feel they know ANYTHING, this would be too good for the Democratic Fundraisers to believe. If I hadn’t read it on Newslo, whose business is to highlight the ridiculous, I would have doubted it was possible for Another Idiot GOP Man to make ANOTHER Stunningly Ignorant, and Again Revealing of the True Values.Morals and Beliefs of the GO
These Republicans have no values of any kind and they don’t have a place in our government. They are uncouth, indecent and untrustworthy. There needs to be some kind of ethics standards by which these perverts can be removed. To allow these kinds of people to remain in our government will only bring this country down to their cesspool level. The Democrats need to step up and meet this garbage head on.
This guy is an IDIOT if he believes Rape is legal if Victim Unaware.
Better get his head out of his behind and get with the program. It should happen to you, and you would know the diffeence.
So, If I have sex with someone in a coma, it’s not a rape?
Does that make the child immaculately conceived, should one be produced by said Non-rape?
Common sense anyone? PLEASE
if he said that I would think the video would be all over youtube, but this is what is on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YIGz2OK048
Well then, if your murdered while sleeping or, knocked out, than it’s not murder right?
Another Republican/Neanderthal rape expert.
Just wow. Somebody pays this guy?!
