The first argument she makes (that there is "no evidence" that it reduces domestic violence) is flat wrong.

The second argument is that it's REALLY a front to just give money to liberal organizations to re-elect Democrats. Which, is evidentially unsupported.

The third argument is that domestic violence was already illegal (she later calls VAWA "redundant"). But VAWA's entire purpose is to help supplement local law enforcement with additional resources, almost all of them unique to VAWA, so this argument is irrelevent.

The fourth argument is that VAWA is unconstitutional, which is hilariously wrong.

The fifth argument is that it costs $600million/year. Which is... too much to spend to fight domestic violence?

The sixth argument she makes is that "raising your voice at a partner," calling her an offensive name," "just annoying her," qualifies as domestic violence under this law. The US government defines domestic violence as "pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner." So in other words, none of the bullshit the speaker says counts as domestic violence unless it's truly abusive with intentions to leverage power.

She then claims that the bill only helps women, and not men. "Radical feminists are protraying women as helpless victims!" "50% of all partner violence is mutual" -- I haven't read anything supporting that, but it doesn't matter. As has already been proven in this thread, VAWA protects men as well.
