How morbidly amusing that Dame Steinem would emerge out from under her rock today to poison pen an oped piece in the NY
crimes grimes slimes Times. Was it to blast the political elites and feminazis for their conspiratorial silence over the brutal murders of our daughters in the name of Islam?
NO! Was it to sound the battle cry against the craven, barbaric
practice of mutilating little girls across the Muslim, Third and now
Western worlds by cutting off their clitorises? NO! Perhaps she never
found hers. Instead this feminazi man hater came out crying like a
little girl. Yes, that's right, Ms. Equal Rights herself (I never saw
the purpose of that silly amendment, a very dangerous redundancy....as if. We are equal. I don't need no stinkin amendment.)Miss Equal Rights had the audacity to play the gender card. Race card
(Obama) gender card (shillary). This on the heels of Hillary's post
menopausal meltdown - tears! Tears! These women are an embarrassment to their gender.
They do not and have never have spoken for the likes of me.
Here is Steinem in 2008 pussying out. Now ain't that rich.
Feminism was always a phony movement, Marxist-Leninist in its orgins. To say that feminism was one of the worst things to happen to women is being kind.
The demon seeds of their "liberation" movement are everywhere - from
the epidemic of single motherhood, the breakdown of the American
family, the street vernacular of "bitches and hos," the emasculation of
men and the bone crushing responsibility of being mother, father,
breadwinner, chief cook and bottle washer. And now the rise of the specter of the woman hating sharia law.
Steinem says, "ladies first, Obama!" hat tip Luscious Larwyn
Steinem tells Obama to give up his seat to Miss Hillary.
In analyzing Iowa's caucuses, I said the winners were Huckabee, followed by Obama. Hold on there, came a reader comment. You overlooked the historic significance of the first black man to carry a white state in presidential politics.
It just never occurred to me that his skin color is all that important. But it is. And I see where his sex also matters.
On the New York Times opinion pages today, Gloria Steinem chastised Obama for not being a girl:
"The woman in question became a lawyer after some years as a community organizer, married a corporate lawyer and is the mother of two little girls, ages 9 and 6. Herself the daughter of a white American mother and a black African father — in this race-conscious country, she is considered black — she served as a state legislator for eight years, and became an inspirational voice for national unity.
"Be honest: Do you think this is the biography of someone who could be elected to the United States Senate? After less than one term there, do you believe she could be a viable candidate to head the most powerful nation on earth?"
Well, when pitted against another lawyer who is in her 8th year in the Senate and a third lawyer who served one term in the Senate, mine answer is sure. Why not?
Because he's not a girl, said Steinem.
"If the lawyer described above had been just as charismatic but named, say, Achola Obama instead of Barack Obama, her goose would have been cooked long ago. Indeed, neither she nor Hillary Clinton could have used Mr. Obama's public style — or Bill Clinton's either — without being considered too emotional by Washington pundits."
Ah, and there is the clue: He's charismatic.
My Li'l Bro Thom read the Steinem piece and reminded me that CBS has played the same sexism card over Katie Couric's failures, about which I wrote last May:
We do women in general no favors, at this point, by continuing an "affirmative action" mindset that says, "aw, she's a woman, and it's a man's world, so she gets extra forbearance." That's nonsense. Once you've reached a pinnacle, you can't keep whining that you're only teetering because you're a woman. You're teetering because the pinnacle is slim, sharp and lonely, and you can only remain there if you belong there, or if you have one hell of a safety belt supporting you. Those that belong there make the pinnacle look easy, the rest impale themselves or fall. Or they loll about in the safety belt, and stagnate.
The "inherent sexism" cry is becoming vapid and intellectually dishonest. Even these "gender experts concede that Hillary is not in trouble because of sexism. And that makes sense. Men on the left can't be sexists, because, hey, they're liberals, right? And men on the right for the most part adore Margaret Thatcher. So…really…perhaps at this point the only "sexists" left are the ones who reduce everything to damn gender issues.
Fausta says there is something pathetic and embarrassing about it all.
UPDATE: Lots of crazy stuff went down today. Crocodile tears bested Obama, the great white hope. Go here for a conservative link round up.
