Hate Group’s Target: Women

Stop Abuse and Violent Environments is the benignly named nonprofit that delayed the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act for nearly two years.

One of its directors is Robert O’Hara, who also works for A Voice for Men, a website that claims to advocate for “the men’s movement.”

The website is the creation of a hate group, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Its founder, Paul Elam, once wrote an essay called “When Is It OK to Punch Your Wife?” in which he wrote:

“The real question here is not whether these women deserve the business end of a right hook, they obviously do, and some of them deserve one hard enough to leave them in an unconscious, innocuous pile on the ground if it serves to protect the innocent from imminent harm. The real question is whether men deserve to be able to physically defend themselves from assault … from a woman.”
