Bob Beckel Doesn’t Think Rape Occurs on College Campuses

by Andrew Johnson

Fox News contributor Bob Beckel, a Democrat, shocked his co-hosts on yesterday’s edition of Fox News’ The Five when he suggested that rape on college campuses is unheard of. In a discussion about legislation that would allow weapons on campuses in order to prevent sexual assault, Beckel, who managed Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign, asked, “When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”

When his co-hosts pushed back, pointing to the prevalence of date rape on university campuses, he responded, “Well, date rape, yeah, that’s one thing, date rape. But [are] you going to take a gun out and shoot your date?”
