Dems' War on Women

Dems’ war on women

After a short sabbatical marked by insincere apologies and feigned rehabilitation, Ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner joined the race for New York City mayor — thus perpetuating the Democratic Party’s War on Women.

Wait, isn’t it those misogynistic Republicans who are engaged in a “war” that objectifies and abuses women?

Well, that was the charge by President Obama and his liberal operatives last year. Their propaganda campaign painted Mitt Romney, a decent family man, as the head of a party of anti-women Neanderthals.

Here in New York, meanwhile, we’ve got a long list of prominent Democrats who’ve variously abused women.

Weiner is just one of many in this reprehensible crew.

As everyone knows, Weiner tweeted a lewd photograph of his crotch to a woman half his age, but accidentally sent the photo to all his Twitter followers. He then repeatedly lied, trying to pass the blame on to unknown hackers — probably some dastardly conservatives — out to embarrass him.

Eventually, we learned that he’d sent photos of himself in various stages of undress to several other women.

Resigning in a cloud of shame left him with millions in his campaign war chest.

He could have donated that money to charities to house the homeless and feed the hungry. Instead, he decided to feed his vanity and run for mayor.

Dems’ war on women
Here in New York, we’ve got a long list of prominent Democrats who’ve variously abused women. Weiner is just one of many in this reprehensible crew.

Then there is the belated resignation of former Assemblyman Vito Lopez (D-Brooklyn), after months of publicity over his repeated sexual harassment of up to eight female staffers.

His “pervasive pattern of abuse,” according to a report by the Joint Commission on Public Ethics, included pawing staffers, asking them to dress “sexier,” punishing those who rejected his advances and asking some aides to feel his tumors.

Lopez was positioned to continue his abuse only because Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver arranged a hush-money settlement with two accusers that included $103,000 in taxpayer funds and a confidentiality agreement designed to protect Silver and the Assembly Democratic majority.

The cover-up imploded only when two more female staffers filed harassment claims against Lopez.

All you do is repeat the same crap Carol despite the fact that each of your points has been shot down on numerous occasions. You don't even try to argue a new angle. No Carol we're not looking the other way, we're looking at these things through the lens of fact and logic while you and your ilk are looking through the distorting lens of irrational hatred.
You really do need to find a pin and pop that bubble of denial.

I'm beginning to think you're just pulling our collective leg. No one could not see what you pretend not to see.

Dems’ war on women
Here in New York, we’ve got a long list of prominent Democrats who’ve variously abused women. Weiner and Lopez are just two of many in this reprehensible crew.

Years earlier, Democrat Sheldon Silver had similarly tried to protect his aide Michael Boxley from allegations of rape.

Boxley, as it happens, is now back in Albany — as a lobbyist.

The unrepentant Lopez (re-elected last year despite the harassment scandal) quit before he could be expelled from the Assembly. But he’s opted to forgo the obligatory period of phony contrition and run for a City Council seat. He may well prevail.

Yet Weiner and Lopez had some reason to think they could get away with their behavior. CONSIDER HOW THEIR PARTY AND MUCH OF THE MEDIA TREATED OTHER POWERFUL WOMEN-ABUSERS.

In feminist theory, a man in a power position who uses his status to take sexual advantage of a subordinate is guilty of sexual harassment and, generally, of being a sexist pig.

A textbook example would be a president of the United States obtaining sexual favors (in the Oval Office, no less) from a female intern less than half his age.

Yet DEMOCRATIC LEADERS AND THE MEDIA TREAT FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON AS A REVERED ELDER STATESMAN RATHER THAN AS THE DIRTY OLD MAN HE IS.

(Then again, THE SAME DEMS IDOLIZED TEDDY-DROWN-THE-DATE- KENNEDY, THE “LION” OF THE SENATE” who really should have been called The Lying Snake of the Senate.)

Dems’ war on women

Then there is Eliot Spitzer, a hypocritical egomaniac of gargantuan proportion — and also considering a political comeback. As state attorney general, he prosecuted prostitution rings of the same type he would later be found to have used himself.

As governor, he signed into law an anti-human trafficking law with the goal of punishing criminals who forced women into prostitution. The law even — get this — increased the penalties for men who patronized prostitutes.

Meanwhile, Spitzer treated young woman as sex toys. According to press reports, he may have spent upward of $80,000 on multiple trysts with high-priced call girls, committing both federal and state crimes.

After a brief period of trying to weather the story, he resigned in much-deserved disgrace.

But he still shows no shame:

DURING LAST YEAR’S PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, SPITZER PROCLAIMED HE FEARED FOR THE FUTURE OF HIS DAUGHTERS IF PRO-LIFER RICK SANTORUM WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT. IF ONLY HE HAD SHOWN AS MUCH CONCERN FOR OTHER PARENTS’ DAUGHTERS BEFORE HE DECIDED TO RENT YOUNG WOMEN’S BODIES WITH A PORTION OF HIS VAST FORTUNE.

Consider: How many impoverished lives could Spitzer have improved if he’d donated those tens of thousands of dollars to charity rather than to hooker rings?

Dems' War on Women

In the dogmatic world of progressive ideology, a liberal politician can be forgiven for the serial abuse of women-- as long as he pays homage-- to a virtually unfettered “right” to an abortion, preferably paid for with taxpayer dollars.

As a result, the Democrats’ War on Women continues, with Generals Weiner, Lopez, Silver, Clinton and Spitzer leading the way.

And the lame stream, liberal biased media will continue to help by taking meanings out of context, such as when Romney spoke about a "binder of women." if that binder held photos of female aborted fetuses, the media would have LOVED HIM.

For one thing Carol, Clinton didn't "fire" any federal attorneys. Their terms were expired and they simply weren't renewed. This happened at the beginning of Clinton's term. Bushes wholesale canning of his prosecutors took place well into his term and they were let go because they were sent on a wild goose chase to find massive voter fraud and they didn't find any.
And no Carol, congress did not get the same intelligence that the White House had. A prime example was the infamous aluminum tubes that the Bush administration claimed as proof of Saddam's nuclear program. Congress did not get the dissenting views of nuclear scientists that they were in fact the wrong size and configuration for that purpose and were later determined to be for artillery rockets.
It's already been established Bush fired 7 U.S. Attorneys that he, himself, hired midterm. But in light of the much more serious accusations surrounding this president that could lead to his doorstep, Bush's presidential "transgression" pales in comparison.

Did Bush lie to us and the rest of the world about a terrorist attack on 9/11 to get reelected?

What if he had?

Did Bush create a climate of "us versus them" and the IRS punish the "them" on his behalf?

What if he had?

Did Bush's Attorney General confiscate journalists emails and phone records illegally and incite a sense of uneasiness among the entire media?

What if he had?

If Obama had only fired seven of his own U.S. Attorneys midterm, no one would have blinked an eye.

Congressional Democrats - down to the very last one - were ready to take out Saddam in 1998. Why would they think he was no longer a threat after 9/11 when he was so noncompliant with the inspectors and managed to bamboozle them?

Are Democrats that easily bamboozled?

Let it go.

Bush lied & said we were attacked because of our love for freedom.

That was a boldfaced lie.

In 1998, they were ready top get Sadam replaced, not invade.

You make the unproven assumption that Saint Trayvon did not commit the assault.
The recorded evidence that American LAdy posted proved that Zimmerman was pursuing Trayvon. Per Zimmerman himself.

If Trayvon turned to confront his stalker, it was Trayvon who was protected by 'stand your ground', you nitwit.

Zimmerman was the attacker, but he misunderestimated the 17 year old.

Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.

Young graduates are in debt, out of work and on their parents’ couches. People in their 30s and 40s can’t afford to buy homes or have children. Retirees are earning near-zero interest on their savings.

The economy sucks, unemployment is still high, terrorists are becoming bolder, IRS is Gestapo, the government is scandal-ridden with criminal and Fascist democrats, and Obama is responsible...

AND... Your addiction and obsession for dumbass is an ardent interest of your pursuit you idiot... I wish someone had an answer to your deranged addiction to fool.

It's the culture..
