There must be a name for women who seek out abusive guys. Oh wait, there is. It’s called the “Stockholm Syndrome.” This severe psychological condition reared its head in Las Vegas this weekend when O.J. Simpson was spotted holding court at the Grape Street Wine Bar & Cellar with three babes. If you can wrap your brain around this one: two of them were blondes – just like his deceased wife, Nicole Brown. God rest her soul.
Ladies, ladies: Do you need a refresher course on how to stay away from bad dudes or do you have a mental problem here?
According to an exclusive report by Valerie Miller and Larry McShane of the New York Daily News, “Looks like O.J.’s still got game — and incredibly, some women are still willing to play along.”
Talk about keeping bad company. These women really do need to have their head examined before O.J. picks up his black gloves and blade and pulls his infamous move – and we’re not talking about on the football field here.
For those old enough to remember, the “Stockholm Syndrome” gained national attention in 1973 when two machine-gun-toting bank robbers held several people hostage for five days in a bank vault strapped to dynamite. After their rescue, it was revealed the hostages had “bonded” with their captors and viewed the police as the enemy. Surprisingly, these victims, “exhibited a shocking attitude considering they were threatened, abused, and feared for their lives for over five days,” according to Joseph M. Carver, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist. If this weren’t enough, “One woman later became engaged to one of the criminals and another developed a legal defense fund to aid in their criminal defense fees,” writes Carver.
This is sick stuff. But perhaps not as twisted as hanging around a bar with O.J. We’re talking an acute psychiatric disturbance of colossal proportions here.
Loyal Liberty Nation readers may remember that back in July we predicted this kind of thing would happen should Mr. Simpson be granted parole. After serving nine years of a thirty-three-year prison sentence for kidnapping and robbery, the “reformed” Mr. Simpson was placed back into American society where one can still find booze and blondes. Considering he was given his walking papers on October 1st, it didn’t take him long to find both. He was even photographed sipping something from a martini glass – and I don’t think it was orange juice. You can see the actual photo here.
When told about the Simpson sighting at the Las Vegas bar, several women sounded horrified to hear that Simpson was carousing around the bar just the night before. Time to pay the tab and mosey on down the strip ladies. You have every right – and a good deal of common sense – to stay as a far away as humanly possible from that man.
It’s impossible not to notice that there are still many O.J. fans out there. And we do realize Mr. Simpson was found not guilty in a court of law. But there is such a thing as common sense and boozing around and perhaps flirting with Simpson seems a bad idea from any and every angle. Let’s hope one of them wasn’t stupid enough to go home with him. If so, we’re likely to hear about it in the news.
Perhaps this is an opportune time to permit art to imitate life, and invoke a bit of dialogue from the movie “The Fly.” In this 1986 horror flick, Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis) is a reporter working on a story when she utters these famous words:
Be afraid, be very afraid.
So, women of America – especially you blondes out there – heed Ms. Quaife’s warning and stay out of the Simpson Zone, lest you too become another casualty in the next episode of “O.J. Simpson: Halloween Horror Come to Life.”
