A man running for Baltimore County sheriff on the Republican ticket has come under fire for comments he made about the Ray Rice incident, The City Paper reports.

David Anthony Wiggins -- a Republican running for the county sheriff on an anti-police brutality platform -- was commenting on an article posted about domestic violence by Alana Davenport, in which she noted that "there is a lot of victim-blaming [of Janay Rice] going on, which is just unacceptable."

"How is she a victim when she began the assault?" Wiggins replied. "Are you holding her blameless and to a higher standard? Did you watch as she continually assaulted him until he knocked her Jodi Badass out? Quit it with the sexist double standard."

He demanded that other commenters "stop making excuses for female violence against men," claiming that Janay Rice "caused her own so-called victimhood by perpetrating violence."

"Women want equality," Wiggins continued, and "she got some of it."

He then turned his attention to the race of the people he was arguing with, writing that "whites in general as a collective should shut the fuck up about violence, you're the most violent people on the face of the planet collectively...None of you have a moral high ground to stand on when it comes to violence."

Moreover, "there are only white Jew women on this thread telling me what black women think."

Wiggins continued to write about the white progressive women concerned about domestic violence on his own page:
