ClashPoll: Liberals Say, ‘Millions Of Women Have LEFT The Republican Party’ – Is That BS?

Written by K. Walker on October 9, 2018

We’ve heard the claim that women are ditching the GOP. Let’s take a look at that claim…

In the wake of the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, there has been much speculation that the controversy surrounding the process and the #MeToo movement have poisoned the GOP for women.

Is that true?

The idea that all women are supposed to be programmed to think the same way like some sort of a ‘Nasty Woman’ version of the Stepford Wives is incredibly insulting and denies that women are free to think and do what they want. It’s ironic that the tolerant left, those champions of ‘choice’ and that ‘women are free beings’ don’t seem to be very tolerant of conservative women. Nope, you’d better line up they way they tell you to.

Are you Pro-Life? You’re not allowed at the Women’s March.

Do you want to have a family? Your selfish choice to not have an abortion is costing the economy billions.

The Media (D) is already sounding the deathknell of the Republican Party.

Here’s some typical reportage:

Donald Trump’s election has clearly pushed independent and Democratic women into action, resulting in record numbers of women running for office, and huge numbers of women doing political organizing and becoming activists for the first time.

It is possible that Trump and the Republican are not alienating just left-leaning and independent women voters though. They may also be alienating Republican women.

Some people believe that what current GOP leaders are doing is permanently damaging the party’s reputation among women and reducing the number of women in the Republican Party forever.

Okay. Now let’s take a gander at what these nutters on the left are doing and saying.

Watch Women’s March Activist, Linda Sarsour, introduce Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) as ‘a champion, another one of our people who works for us on the inside’:

And realize that it’s not just enough to be grouping by ‘women’ — intersectionality demands that white women must acknowledge their inherent privilege because of their race. (How racist is that?)

So… white women aren’t welcome in the movement anymore?!?

Someone should tell Madonna, Ashley Judd, Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing, Amy Schumer, Emily Ratajkowski and all the other famous spokeswomen for the movement. They should know that they’re not welcome.

What these nutty toddleresque Women’s March activists don’t realize is that they’ve actually galvanized support by women on the right to the Republican Party.

The Atlantic — no friend of conservatives if the way they handled the hiring and subsequent firing of Kevin Williamson to appease the outrage mob is any indication — has written an article saying that rightwing women are standing strong in their support of the GOP.

In interviews with roughly a dozen female conservative leaders from as many states, this was the overwhelming sentiment: These women are infuriated with the way the sexual-assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have been handled. They are not convinced by Ford or any other woman who has come forward. They resent the implication that all women should support the accusers. And they believe that this scandal will ultimately hurt the cause of women who have been sexually assaulted.

Above all, these women, and the women they know, are ready to lash out against Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

…Organizers in other states say they’ve been hearing the same thing. “People in Indiana are angry. They are mad. They are changing their mind,” says Jodi Smith, the Indianapolis-based state director for the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List. When Senator Joe Donnelly, another vulnerable Democrat who is up for reelection in November, declared late last week that he would vote against Kavanaugh, it “started a firestorm of epic proportions,” Smith says. From her perspective on the ground in a highly contested swing state, “this is one of the best things that could happen to us.”

And it’s not just the idea that their sons, husbands, or friends may be falsely accused and have his life ruined, it’s that they don’t like the hijacking of a movement that was originally about the seriousness of sexual assault for political gain.

…Contrary to what some liberal pundits have claimed, however, the women I spoke with did not downplay the seriousness of sexual assault. “I never would want to disparage, in any way, Dr. Ford. Every woman deserves the opportunity to tell their story, to receive healing from what’s happened,” Smith says. She herself was sexually assaulted, she says, and her daughters passionately support Ford. Ultimately, though, she doesn’t believe the allegations are backed by evidence, and “I also am the mother of sons,” she says.

The women I interviewed, however, resented the notion that people’s accusations should be believed on the basis of their identity alone. “That makes me furious, because I think that’s taking advantage for the worst purposes of something that is real in our culture,” Hunt says. “Women are not a monolithic bloc. Most of us … [are] not going to take to the streets with pitchforks and torches… That said, there’s a large, large percentage of us who feel very, very strongly about the way this process has played out.”

Shocker, I know, but conservative women are not the heartless self-hating ‘rape apologists’ that the left claims that they are.

Frankly, I think that members of the leftist activist freak show are the minority.

Smart-as-a-whip conservative, Megan Fox, wrote an article that I completely related to.

Never have I felt more ashamed of my sex than in the last two weeks watching hysterical harridans trashing tradition, decorum, and common decency. The Kavanaugh confirmation circus has brought out the worst of womankind — women who forced themselves, writhing with hatred and ignorance, into our living rooms and smart devices uninvited and without consent. I’ve never felt so assaulted in my life than after watching the fiendish, frenzied temper tantrums of a thousand deranged females during what is supposed to be tedious, uneventful Senate procedure to seat a Supreme Court justice.

Fox then discusses the anti-suffrage movement and examines whether it included some good reasons to not give women the vote. What she found was startling.

Taken from a parliamentary debate in 1912, Viscount Helmsley nailed it.

The way in which certain types of women, easily recognised, have acted in the last year or two, especially in the last few weeks, lends a great deal of colour to the argument that the mental equilibrium of the female sex is not as stable as the mental equilibrium of the male sex….It seems to me that this House should remember that if the vote is given to women those who will take the greatest part in politics will not be the quiet, retiring, constitutional women… but those very militant women who have brought so much disgrace and discredit upon their sex.  It would introduce a disastrous element into our public life…it is little short of nauseating and disgusting to the whole sex…

Well, that’s awkward in the light of recent news, isn’t it? It’s like it could have been written yesterday.

She then comes to a conclusion that I have often joked about with close friends in the past.

And now, after watching this shameful ten-act play that will not end, I am forced to admit that perhaps the anti-suffrage movement was right. These are not serious voices in any debate. They are radical anarchists hell-bent on tearing down our very Constitution. There’s no denying it anymore. What they want is power to destroy and dismantle America as we know it and rebuild it into an unrecognizable place of mob rule. Hard pass.

But, while this is a pessimistic view, I remember how many great women are out there in office at every level of government, behind the scenes working for candidates, and pushing forward a conservative, pro-family agenda. That gives me hope.

How about you? What do you think?

Is the GOP doomed because women are against them, or is that all just a steaming pile of bovine scatology?
