The real war on women: Systematic attack on conservatives - phillyBurbs.com

Posted: Thursday, January 31, 2013 6:00 am | Updated: 10:43 am, Wed Jan 30, 2013.

Throughout 2012, Democrats and the mainstream media claimed that Republicans were waging a "war on women." The left began this narrative when Rush Limbaugh made misogynist comments about activist Sandra Fluke after she complained about being denied a chance to testify at a House hearing on insurance coverage for birth control.

Then came the colossally insensitive comments by candidates Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin about rape, giving the left further gasoline to pour on their "war on women" bonfire.

There's just one problem with the left's "war on women" claim -– it's bogus.

The mainstream media took three isolated incidents and chose to demonize all Republicans. They failed to highlight that Republicans were outraged about these comments and criticized Limbaugh, Mourdock and Akin for them.

Unfortunately, this "war on women" rhetoric adversely affected Mitt Romney's chances in the election.

The reason that left created the bogus Republican "war on women" was to distract Americans from its own "war on women" -- the left has viciously and systematically attacked conservative women for years. Unfortunately, most Americans have never heard about the left's "war on women."

The left's blatant hypocrisy about women is best exemplified by Barack Obama's reaction after Limbaugh's comments about Fluke. At a press conference, Obama explained that he phoned Fluke to send a message to his daughters and all women that they shouldn't be "attacked or called horrible names because they are being good citizens."

Obama was then asked by a reporter to comment on the many examples of liberal hate speech. Not surprisingly, our "Hypocrite-In-Chief" suddenly declined, claiming he "didn't want to get into the business of arbitrating language and civility."

Obama's posture on Limbaugh's comment is reprehensible considering the $1 million contribution to a pro-Obama super PAC by HBO's liberal misogynist Bill Maher. Maher has repeatedly made disgusting and sexually degrading comments about Sarah Palin, her daughter Bristol, and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, among others -- far worse degradations than anything that Limbaugh said about Fluke.

Even though Obama was aware of Maher's vile comments about women, he refused to ask the super PAC to return the $1 million to Maher.

If Limbaugh talked about Obama's wife and daughters in the same way Maher talked about the Palins, one can only imagine the outrage by Obama and the mainstream media.

And why didn't Obama call the Palins like he did with Fluke if he's really concerned about all women?

Liberals argue that these attacks do not represent "respectable," "mainstream" liberal opinion about conservative women.


Some "respectable" and "mainstream" liberals opine below about conservative women:

• Feminist leader Gloria Steinem called Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a "female impersonator."

• NOW leader Patricia Ireland commanded women to only vote for "authentic" female political candidates.

• Al Gore consultant Naomi Wolf accused the late Jeane Kirkpatrick of being "uninflected by the experiences of the female body."

• Liberal TV columnist Keith Olbermann -- a special guest at the Obama White House -- wrote that columnist S.E. Cupp was "a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does."

• Liberal Wisconsin radio host John "Sly" Sylvester made outrageously false and sexually degrading accusations against GOP Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. Previously, Sylvester called former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a "black trophy" and "Aunt Jemima."

• Liberal misogynist, Ed Schultz of MSNBC, hurled sexually laced insults at talk show host Laura Ingraham for criticizing Obama's Cambridge beer summit.

• Liberal activists attacked tea party mothers and grandmothers in sexually degrading terms during the fight over public union reform in Wisconsin.

The bogus "war on women" is liberal hypocrisy at its worst. The left's double standard regarding sexually degrading comments about women -- liberal women are off-limits, but for conservative women, it's open season -- shows Obama's and the left's politicized ethics as well as their complete lack of a moral compass.

No woman -- liberal or conservative -- should be subjected to any kind of degrading comments -- from anyone.

All women -- liberal and conservative -- should be outraged at any kind of degrading comment about any woman, regardless of their political beliefs.

All women should demand that the mainstream media end their blatant hypocrisy and condemn all people – both liberal and conservative – who degrade women.
