If there were a (D) after her name, they’d be naming their kids after her. But she’s got that scarlet (R) after her name, so she must be denounced.
The Feminist movement — in its current expression — is a colossal bait-and-switch game.
What they ACTUALLY care about, and what they CLAIM to care about are two very different things.
They claim to care about the fair treatment of women and girls around the world.
In reality, they’re just a front group for organizing yet another identity group (this time, women) to rally around the Progressive cause, and to whip up emotion and protest against the enemy with the dreaded (R) after their name.
Can we back it up with multiple examples? Of course we can!
They’re not even trying to hide it. They’re so confident the narrative is cemented into the culture that nobody will question it anymore.
(And you can ask Kanye about assumptions the left makes about the loyalty of identity groups, and what happens when you ‘defect’ from their team.)
The most recent example, in the current news cycle, is the outrageous statement made against Ivanka.
Not just the vulgar word she was called… but the implications of incest that went alog with it. Not as an off-the-cuff statement, but written, rehearsed, and approved as part of the script in Sandra Bee’s show.
If you missed it, or (more likely) are wondering who the hell ‘Samantha Bee’ is, this will get you up to speed: Should Samantha Bee Be Fired For Calling Ivanka A ‘Feckless C**t?’
Brianna Heldt made some keen observations about what’s really going on here:
On the surface, Ivanka’s a woman every feminist should love. She’s beautiful, carries herself with confidence, and is both a shrewd and effective businesswoman. Ivanka has her own jewelry and clothing lines, is a former model, and holds a degree in economics. And as if all of that weren’t enough, she’s married with three children.
Basically the epitome of what’s possible for women, right?
Well, apparently not if you’re a liberal feminist.
[…] Does the expectation of basic human decency only extend to a certain class or demographic of people?
In a word, yes. It does.
So goes on to articulate a claim similar to the one we are saying about (R) being the ‘scarlet letter’ of today.
Do we have any OTHER examples? Absolutely.
Linda Sarsour was one of the founders of the pussy-hat march. She’s a top-tier insider among the intersectional movememnt.
She tweeted that she wished she could take Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s vaginas away because they don’t ‘deserve’ to be women.
For the record it is ironic that the very same religion Linda (“I was an ordinary white girl until I put on a Hijab“) Sarsour converted to was the one that forcibly removed part of her reproductive organs. If attacking the victim is the cardinal sin of the Left… what do you call a white woman (Sarsour) mocking the pain of an actual victim of FGM?
For the record, she’s perfectly fine with racism, too. Ask her about that time she and Farrakhan were at the same event. (Although to hear Sonnie Johnson tell it… Sarsour makes Farrakhan’s crazy seem tame by comparison.)
We could go on and on and on …
But let’s do just one more.
Ann Coulter. Whatever you think of her politics, she’s more or less what the supposed feminist idea is. She’s educated, she’s tough, she’s successful, attractive, and she can hold her own even in a loud and hostile panel where she’s the lone token right-winger.
Strong. Intelligent. Educated. Independant. Successful. Devastating in debate.
If there were a (D) after her name, you just know they’d be putting her name forward as the ‘next big thing’ in politics.
But with that (R)? You’ve guessed it.
Feminism isn’t designed to protect women at all.
It’s designed to protect political POWER and those who HOLD it.
Why else do you suppose a group of women who didn’t walk lockstep with Leftist ideology was excluded from that Pussy-hat march?
They support all women.
So long as they are more committed to a Leftist agena than they are to more generic women’s rights.
Otherwise, getting them to stand as one voice against Female Genital Mutialtion would be a no-brainer.
But no. They’ve got more important issues to attend to. Like yelling swear words at Donald Trump.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
