Democrats And Their War On Women

April 13, 2012

Democrats are trying to distance themselves from senior Democrat and Obama strategist Hillary Rosen’s attack on women and on motherhood.  It’s a tough sell: Hillary Rosen has visited the Obama White House 35 times, versus only 16 times for energy Secretary Steven Chu, only 9 times for CIA director David Petraeus, and interestingly only 6 times for Joe Biden.

Hillary Rosen is a top level Obama strategist.  As well as a woman-and-motherhood basher.

And this new revelation is in perfect harmony with the Obama White House that pays women only 4/5ths of what it pays men and its history of being a “boy’s club” and a “hostile workplace” for women.

Hilary Rosen, Democratic Strategist, Criticizes Ann Romney For Having ‘Never Worked A Day In Her Life’

Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen stirred controversy Wednesday evening when she criticized Ann Romney for having “never worked a day in her life.”

During a discussion on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 of the so-called war on women, Rosen said she agreed with Mitt Romney’s claim that women care more about economic issues than reproductive rights. But Romney’s use of his wife Ann’s perspective shows how poorly the former Massachusetts governor connects with voters, Rosen said.

“Guess what?” Rosen said. “His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing.”

Rosen continued, “There’s something much more fundamental about Mitt Romney. He seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women, and I think that comes across, and I think that that’s going to hurt him over the long term. He just doesn’t really see us as equal.”

Rosen’s comments provoked a quick response from the Romney campaign, as well as from President Barack Obama’s reelection team.

Ann Romney, who previously was not on Twitter, sent her first official tweet in response to Rosen’s comments.

“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys,” she wrote.  “Believe me, it was hard work.”

Top Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom also tweeted about the interview, referring to Rosen as an “Obama adviser,” even though Rosen is employed neither by the Obama campaign nor the Democratic National Committee.

Obama’s strategists rapidly disassociated themselves and the campaign from Rosen’s comments.

“I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly,” Jim Messina, Obama’s campaign manager, wrote in a tweet. “Her comments were wrong and family should be off-limits. She should apologize.”

David Axelrod made a similar statement, tweeting that he was “disappointed” in Rosen’s “inappropriate and offensive” comments.

Rosen tweeted several times about her remarks, saying she has “nothing against” Romney’s wife and that her comments were intended to criticize Mitt Romney’s use of Ann as an “expert on women and the economy.”

In a blog on The Huffington Post, Rosen (who, in full disclosure, was once employed at this website), further clarified her comments. Ann Romney “seems like a nice lady who has raised nice boys and struggled with illness and handles their long-term effects with grace and dignity,” Rosen wrote. “What is more important to me and 57 percent of current women voters is her husband saying he supports women’s economic issues because they are the only issues that matter to us and then he fails on even those.”

This Democrat war on women is NOTHING NEW:

Teresa Heinz-Kerry did it to Laura Bush in 2004:

Q: You’d be different from Laura Bush?

A: Well, you know, I don’t know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don’t know that she’s ever had a real job — I mean, since she’s been grown up.

For the record, Laura Bush was a teacher and librarian – which most people would describe as “grown up” jobs.

And then there are those infamous words from Hillary Clinton as she revealed her open hostility for women who work HARD as homemakers:

“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.”

Yep, that’s all my mother did, and I’m sure yours as well; she just stayed home and baked cookies and had teas.  That lazy good for nothing useless woman.  Good thing Hillary Clinton came along or no woman ever could have possibly ever managed to lift her carcass off the couch, I’m just certain.

My mother was a teacher.  After my older brother and before I was born, my mother chose to sacrifice her career.  She stopped working until my brother and I were in school, and then she worked so that she could be home when we left for school and home when we came home from school.  And then she did all the homemaking stuff – which is HARD, btw – on top of that.  She has also run all the finances.

Because of her sacrificial life and because of her example of Christian faith, my mother is my hero.  She’s beyond incredible.  Oh, and she’s a diehard Republican and dues-paying member of the National Federation of Republican Women.  What an example and trusted friend and wise counselor my mother has been throughout my life.

It’s interesting, what woman won the right to women’s suffrage (i.e. the vote)???  Susan B. AnthonyAnd what party did Susan B. Anthony belong to and campaign for?  The Republican Party – which happens to be the same party that won freedom for black people in abject slavery to DEMOCRATS.  Susan B. Anthony said, “I shall work for the Republican party and call on all women to join me, precisely… for what that party has done and promises to do for women, nothing more, nothing less.”

I wrote an article the day before yesterday on the war on mothers, families and children going on in Sweden – and how Democrats are trying to take that demonic agenda here.

A few excerpts from the source article I commented on tie right in to what we’ve steadily been hearing from Democrats’ own mouths:

“The Swedish government believes that [the] state takes better care of children than parents,” said Jonas Himmelstrand, president of ROHUS, the Swedish Homeschool Association. […]

“We were afraid to stay. Our children were in danger and our family was in danger,” Cina said. […]

Most Swedish home-schoolers don’t make the decision for religious reasons, but because they see the educational and social development home schooling provides.

“Sweden’s treatment of parents in the area of education is totalitarian, essentially. They want to take children from birth to graduation and control them,” said Michael Donnelly, director of international relations at the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. […]

Parents are pressured to put their children in daycare at age one.

“One mother told me when she went with her 18 month son to his medical checkup, and he was not in daycare. They said, ‘Oh, your son is not in daycare? But he has to go to daycare. He needs that and you need to work,’”Himmselstrand told CBN News.

“The argument they give about this is that every child has a ‘right’ to daycare. This is not a right that parents are allowed to interfere with.”

Donnelly said there is a bad historical precedent for Sweden’s control of children and education: the dictatorships of the last century.

“This seems to be what’s happening in Sweden,” he said. “They want to get the kids. They want to socialize them in the way they think is appropriate, and they don’t want the parents involved.” […]

‘No More Housewives’

A major issue for the Swedish government is gender equality.

The motto for a leading educator in the country states, “Sweden: No more housewives, but higher wages for women.”

Tamara Himmelstrand said she used to experience the daily disapproval of stay-at-home moms in Sweden.

“The incredible disdain Swedish society has for motherhood and the work that I was doing [made me feel like a bad person],” she said.

But Sweden’s experiment with state control of children and families does not seem to be going so well. The Swedish government’s own report shows the psychological health of Swedish youth is declining faster than in 11 comparable European countries.

“And this is being discussed [by experts],” Jonas Himmselstrand said. “Why are Swedish young people so psychologically unhealthy, so full of anxiety, so easily depressed?”

“If you ask any developmental psychologist in Sweden who is into this question, they would say, ‘You know, it has a likely connection to the fact that 93 percent of all 18 month to 5-year-olds are in daycare, often for many hours a day,” he continued.

Money quotes: “Oh, your son is not in daycare? But he has to go to daycare. He needs that and you need to work.”  That, of course, and this:

A major issue for the Swedish government is gender equality.

Tamara Himmelstrand said she used to experience the daily disapproval of stay-at-home moms in Sweden.

And this war on women, on children, on motherhood and on families is all right out of the Democrat playbook.  Sweden is where Obama wants America to be.  Somehow his ilk always targets the children and always falsely claims the mantle of representing women.

Democrats – who most CERTAINLY don’t represent women like my mother – like to depict themselves as pro-“working women.”  But that isn’t true, either.  They are pro-LIBERAL woman and ANTI-woman in every other respoect.

When the Rush Limbaugh comment on Sarah Fluke came out, reliably liberal feminist Kirsten Powers said that Rush’s comments were NOTHING compared to what women-bashing liberal men get away with ALL THE TIME.  Which is to say that the only reason Democrats are able to maintain the facade of being the party of women has been because of outright media propaganda.

Kirsten Powers – whom I almost ALWAYS disagree with – is a consistent feminist who was appalled at the vicious treatment that conservative women such as Sarah Palin have received from the liberal establishment.

She had the following exchange with also-liberal Alan Colmes about the abject hypocrisy that is the National Organization of Women:

During the 5 September 2008 broadcast of the Fox News program “Hannity and Colmes,” Kirsten Powers said this:

“It’s not the National Organization for Women, right? But it’s not. It’s really the National Organization for Liberal Women. It’s not the National Organization for Women, because she’s [Sarah Palin is] a woman. And they put out a statement saying, “Not all women speak for women. Sarah Palin doesn’t speak for women.” Well, look; this woman, when I look at her – even if I don’t support her, you know, a lot of her policies, she is the embodiment of what feminism was all about. She’s a mother, she’s successful, her husband helps with the children. You know, we should be exited about this, even if you don’t support her.”

Alan Colmes then said:

“If you support someone just because they’re a woman, and the National Organization for Women supports anybody whose a woman,then you’re saying we’re just supporting them because they’re a woman, and you’re not being discerning at all. So you can’t have it both ways.”

And Kirsten Powers responded:

“I would agree with that if they had any kind of actual moral authority, but they don’t, because they don’t ever support any women who don’t support their very narrow agenda. So they should just rename themselves and say what they’re really for, and stop pretending like they really care about the advancement for women.”

And of course Kirsten Powers was entirely correct.  I’m surprised that liberals didn’t declare a jihad on her the way they have on so many other strong independent women whom the left viciously and hatefully and frankly demonically attacked for wanting to be strong and independent in their own way rather than in Hillary Clinton’s and now Hillary Rosen’s way.

At least now the mask has been ripped off to reveal the ugly face of the left once again.

This was an issue that the Democrat Party disingenuously fabricated and demagogued.  Hopefully this revelation will throw a very large bucket of very cold water on the Democrat Party’s dishonest rhetoric.

Furthermore, putting a spotlight on Ann Romney was a GIGANTIC mistake on the part of the Democrats because it only reveals that Republican women can kick some serious ass without even looking like they’re fighting.

Racist Obamas Invite ‘Poet’ Who Threatened George Bush, Advocated Cop Murder To White House

May 11, 2011

Here are the lyrics to the vile loathsome crap that passes off as “poetry” to Barack and Michelle Obama:

A Letter to the Law
Dem boy wanna talk… [indistinguishable]
Whatcha gon do if ya got one gun?
I sing a song for the hero unsung
with faces on the mural of the revolution
No looking back cos’ in back is what’s done
Tell the preacher, god got more than one son
Tell the law, my Uzi weighs a ton
I walk like a warrior,
from them I won’t run
On the streets, they try to beat us like a drum
In Cincinnati, another brother hung
A guinea won’t see the sun
with his family stung
They want us to hold justice
but you handed me none
The same they did to Kobe and Michael Jackson
make them the main attraction
Turn around and attack them
Black gem in the rough
You’re rugged enough
Use your mind and nine-power, get the government touch
Them boys chat-chat on how him pop gun
I got the black strap to make the cops run
They watching me, I’m watching them
Them dick boys got a lock of cock in them
My people on the block got a lot of pok* in them
and when we roll together
we be rocking them to sleep
No time for that, because there’s things to be done
Stay true to what I do so the youth dream come
from project building
Seeing a fiend being hung
With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?
Burn a Bush cos’ for peace he no push no button
Killing over oil and grease
no weapons of destruction
How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one
The government’s a g-unit and they might buck young black people
Black people In the urban area one
I hold up a peace sign, but I carry a gun.
Peace, ya’ll.”

So let’s honor “poets” that say killing police is a good thing.  Let’s honor a guy who said we should burn George Bush to death for the war in Iraq, etc.

I can imagine a “poet” writing a “poem” that “cleverly” connects the similarity in the names of Obama and Osama.  And then “cleverly” suggest that Obama should share the same fate Osama just received.

And I imagine that there would probably be a market for garbage like that, masquerading as “art.”  Because there are a lot of diseased minds in this country.

But here’s the difference: George and Laura Bush would not have had that filth corrupting their White House if they’d been president and first lady for a million billion years.  And in this case the “diseased minds” belong to Barack and Michelle Obama.

Which is why George Bush has more class in one hair follicle than Barack Obama does in his entire family tree.  Particularly given what a vile tree Obama fell out of.

I will never understand how Barack Obama can give one astonishingly hypocritical moral lecture after another, and then invite moral filth like this into the White House.

If a Republican President were to invite the “white” equivalent of this cockroach “Common,” the media would spend the rest of his presidency seeing page one stories about his racism.

For what it’s worth, this “Common” guy came out of Jeremiah Wright’s and Barack Obama’s Trinity United Church.  Which is just one more illustration of what a moral sewer this synagogue of satan truly is.

“Common” also eulogized a convicted cop murderer (Assata Shakur) in a song titled, “A Song for Assata,” in which he said of her: “Your power and pride is beautiful. May God bless your soul.”  Shakur, a violent racist Black Panther formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, was convicted for the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike. She escaped prison in 1979, and is living in asylum in Cuba.

New Jersey police are beyond outraged at this.

I shouldn’t even have to adress how vile it is to sing “inspirational” songs in celebration of something that evil.  The only thing I can think of that would be more vile than that would be for a president and first lady to celebrate that kind of moral filth in the White House.

I have always said that Barack Hussein Obama is a genuinely evil man.  It just keeping getting easier and easier for me to stand by that statement.

Liberals live in a world of massive hypocrisy and gigantic double standards.  I think of how they demonized – and continue to demonize – the Tea Party movement as being violent and white.  And then we saw what white liberals in Wisconsin were capable of.  For the record, Tea Partiers NEVER threatened to molest a liberal politician’s kids; “obstructionist” “Party of No” Republicans NEVER left their state because they were too undemocratic to vote; Tea Partiers NEVER smashed windows and rioted in political offices; and they most certainly NEVER caused $7 million in damage with their vandalism.  But none of that matters when hypocrisy defines your entire ideology.

Obama gave less than 1% of his income a year to charity until he decided to run for president.  But now this man who refused to give his own money even to charties he most strongly beleived in is a strong proponent of forcing others to give their money to a government they rightly increasingly despise.  Being generous with other people’s money isn’t righteousness; it is wickedness.  The man is a quintessential hypocrite.

And this same man has given me idiotic moral lectures on race while he comes from a tradition of hard-core racism.  He’s cynically lectured us on not turning on one another, when all he’s done is turn on conservatives, demonize straw men and tell outright lies, and celebrate the lowest and most loathsome forms of black racism.
