Democrats have waged their own “War on Women”

Two dozen Democratic women from the U.S. House of Representatives accused Republicans of waging a “war on women” at the DNC’s convention on Tuesday with sharp criticisms of Republicans on healthcare (lack of free contraception), equal pay (Nancy Pelosi is one of the worst violators of equal pay in her office) and domestic violence.

These women would do well to check their party’s own record concerning actual atrocities against women, not perceived Republican votes on issues, before casting the first stone.

This year’s Democratic National Convention presented a video tribute to Senator Edward Kennedy of Chappaquiddick, Massachusettes’ fame. Senator Kennedy, after partying into the wee hours of July 18, 1969, drove his car off a bridge and after escaping the car, swam away and left Mary Jo Kopechne, who perished in the accident.

Kennedy didn’t report the incident until the next morning, even after Kennedy and friends from the party tried to rescue Kopechne from the car, despite the fact that there were phones at the cottage where the party was held, and at the motel – but no call for help was made.

Kennedy discussed the night’s events with several people, including his lawyer and Kopechne’s parents, before meeting with police the next morning. In the end her death was ruled an accidental drowning. No autopsy was performed.

What do you think of former President Bill Clinton, keynote speaker at the Democratic convention? Remember his statement, ” I did not have sexual relations with that women, Monica Lewinsky,” leading to Articles of Impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice for actually having a sexual relationship with a 22-year-old White House intern, as sitting president of the United State and lying to cover up the scandal.

Then there were the Democrats who didn’t show up at the convention. One was John Edwards, who had an affair with Rielle Hunter, who beared his child, while his wife was dying with breast cancer, after telling his wife he would stop the affair.

Edwards was accused and went to trail for allegedly using campaign funds to cover up the indiscretion. He was later acquitted of the crime.

His wife eventually died of the cancer and his child is being raised by his mistress. It sure looks like a “war on women” to most casual observers!

Finally, there is Anthony Weiner – enough said.

The two dozen women accusers of the Republican’s “War on Women” at Democratic National convention should heed Luke 6:42.

How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.’

  1. A few more to add…

    As I’ve posted before, the easiest way to drive a liberal woman nuts is to ask her whether it’s okay for a couple to abort their unborn child if the child is a girl and the couple wants a boy. You rarely get a coherent answer from the liberal woman. Congress tried to ban sex-selective abortions, but the Democrats blocked it (the legislation needed a 2/3 majority to pass because of some rule for fast-tracked legislation). If this isn’t a war on females, I don’t know what it.

    The liberals like to scream that no obstacles of any nature or of any kind should exist for woman seeking abortions. Think of where the U.S. would be if the liberals also screamed that no obstacles of any kind or of any nature should exist for small businesses who wish to create a job. The taxes, regulations, and now ObamaCare are suffocating the job-creative life out of this country. And the liberals scratch their head and can’t figure out why so few jobs are being created.

    Back to the war on women: single working moms have the hardest job in the world. A lot of them are stuck in low-paying jobs because there are no other jobs to go to. A high unemployment rate is a cruel thing, and it sometimes affects women disproportionately.

  2. Yeah, I’d say the things you post about in the article are a little bit different from forcing women to have certain unnecessary medical procedures in order to do a perfectly legal thing.

    Secondly, but more importantly, the issue is with hypocrisy. People want small government, and small government is about promoting freedom not restricting it. I’m disappointed with Romney’s choice of running mate, Ryan really hasn’t helped gain approval ratings with women. I mean he did vote against an equal pay bill, which is never good. You can’t expect to vote against equality and for people to not claim discrimination.

  3. War on women? I am sure the woman Lib groups support this guy.
    I guess his party supports this as well.

    Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison: Republicans Are “Party of Hate” For Banning Shariah Law in Platform

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/09/muslim-rep-keith-ellison-republicans-are-party-of-hate-for-banning-shariah-law-in-platform/

    Although I didn’t see Sharia explicitly mentioned in the party platform.

  4. John Edwards, Elliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, Tiger Woods, Bill Clinton. All cheat on their wives, but as long as they are “sorry”, the media forgives them. It’s a “personal matter” anyway. I wonder what women think of that! N.O.W. are liberal first, women second. A republican woman doesn’t exist in their eyes.

  5. Wow. Desperation from Ted. You know as well as anyone that we could produce a list of GOP adulterers just as easily as you did with your incoherent post. Ted Kennedy? Really? You had to go back that far?

    This isn’t about personal behavior; this is about policy. The GOP would like to send women back to the 1950s (or maybe the 1850s!) where they were seen and not heard. The GOP is all about getting government out of people’s lives; oh, except for when we socialize corporate losses with bailouts and we tell women what they can and cannot do with their bodies. Plain and simple.

    You swung and missed on this one, Ted.

    • Ted Biondo

      monkey, according to you I always swing and miss because you disagree with my positions because you are a liberal. I will not lose any sleep over it because I have had to deal with your type for almost 20 years and eventually prevail. I already explained my post – read the reply to Steverino.

      These Democratic women are hypocrites, pure and simple. They are mostly silent when one of their political Demo-men do something wrong. If they were true to their word, they would be gripping whenever someone acts poorly toward women, regardless of party affiliation.

      What has happened to NOW when there are issues with liberals treating women poorly? Huh? They are all hypocrites simply after power to place even more restrictions on Americans – restrictions they think are correct, of course – and usually take away people’s choice for which they frequently clamor!

  6. Democrats have their own “War on Women. The following is just one example:

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/rnc-star-mia-loves-wikipedia-reportedly-changed-to-dirty-worthless-whre%E2%80%99-who-is-a-house-nier/

    These Democrats are not only sexist, but racist, too!

  7. And these Republican Christians exploiting both women and men John Ensign, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig, David Vitter, Mark Foley, Bob Packwood, Bill Thomas, Dan Burton, Charles Canady, Dick Armey, Don Sherwood, Ed Schrock Jim Bunn and of course Newt Gingrich to name a few.

    • Ted Biondo

      Steverino – I didn’t say the Republicans didn’t have the same things. I said that the Democratic women at the convention are hypocrites for acting as if the Republicans have a monopoly on a “War on Women.” Can’t you read?

      The power philanderers know no party affliation. They all treat women the same – bad. These women are hypocrites simply trying to get re-elected. They are also hypocrites about the “Equal Pay” issue. Look at some of their own offices, including Pelosi’s, where women make much less than men. Quit watching MSNBC exclusively and reading the New York Times!

  8. I love when grumpy old Ted shows his face. You frequently write cogent, well-thought-out pieces and I have no problem acknowledging that even though I may disagree with them. On this one, however, you clearly swung and missed.

    I’m guessing you wanted to start a policy debate but instead you framed it as a debate about which party has more adulterers. That’s a playground battle akin to “my team is better than yours.” Makes no sense. Both parties have plenty of hypocrites and both have long lists of office holders who’ve been busted for bad behavior.

    The difference here, in the point I made that you ignored, is that this is about policy. Why not address that issue? What policies are the Dems promoting that constitute a “war on women?” If that’s your argument, then back it up.

  9. Steve, you didn’t see any of those scum repubs headlining the convention like Bill Clinton did. That would be a WAY too controversial and exploitive to women.

  10. Just remember the rules: If a democrat gets caught, the girl is just a liar or trailer trash (Gennifer, Paula, Monica). If a republican gets caught, the girl is a true victim, scarred forever (Anita Hill)

  11. OMG! A woman said this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbL_5uHt2iA

    “No, but he is trying to get the stupid single women voters, which is the Democratic Party base. And I would just say to the stupid single women voters, your husband will not be able to pay you child support. If Obamacare goes through and Obama is reelected, you are talking about the total destruction of wealth in America. It is the end of America as we know it, there will be no innovation, there will be no growth. Great, you’ll get free contraception. You won’t have to pay a $10 copay. But it will be the end of America. Think about that.”

    “Their base is not women, it is divorced separated single women. It’s women who are looking at the government to be their husbands. That is the base of the Democratic Party. Please pay for my childcare, my contraception, my housing, my food. It’s women who don’t have a man to provide for them so they turn to the government. That’s the Democratic Party’s base. Congratulations Democrats.”

    According to Wikipedia, “The War on Women is a political catchphrase used in United States politics to describe Republican Party initiatives in federal and state legislatures that are seen as restricting women’s rights, especially with regard to reproductive rights.” Your examples have nothing to do with policy. Do you really think that “most casual observers” cannot differentiate between legislative action and one slimeball who was banging a staffer while his wife was dying? Show me these “casual observers.” I want to meet people that stupid.

    You state: “These women are hypocrites simply trying to get re-elected.” Are you really calling these politicians hypocrites simply because some members of the same political party did something that you disapprove of years ago? That’s a stretch, even for you, Ted. If you cannot tell the difference between policy and individuals’ actions then you should just stop trying now. Yeah, yeah, you’ve saved taxpayers…

  13. No, Adam, we describe them as hypocrites because they only support LIBERAL women. If a Republican/conservative woman is unfairly attacked, these so-called defenders of women’s rights are as silent as the grave. Think of all the lies and vile accusations made against Gov. Palin and Rep. Bachmann, as two out of many examples.

    As to ” I want to meet people that stupid.”, you should have attended the DNC convention.

    Or, you could have interviewed these 2008 Obama voters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm1KOBMg1Y8

  14. shawnnews

    What lies have been told about Palin and Bachmann?

  15. Ted, from the “victim” of a cheating (now ex) spouse, I find your comparison of cheaters and women’s health care issues ridiculous and shameful.

    Many women who have been victimized by men have turned to clinics like Planned Parenthood because they have nowhere else to turn, have no insurance and no money BECAUSE of the cheater. The “war on women” compared to adultery? Please.

    • Ted Biondo

      Lulu – I think I mentioned in the post there were two deaths involved, especially Kennedy and the other infidelity occured with the wife dying of breast cancer – not just cheating. Also if Obama and the Democrats didn’t tax us people could afford more of their own healthcare?

  16. Shawn, if you have to ask, you wouldn’t understand the answer.

  17. I happened across this relevant blurb: http://i48.tinypic.com/bm0s1.jpg

  18. Adam Faber

    Ted, can you still not see the difference between legislative action and these incidents? Ms. Kopechne died in a car accident and Ms. Edwards died from breast cancer; to compare these to an organized push by Republicans to pass legislation that restricts women’s rights is foolish and desperate. The entire premise is simply preposterous; why even write a column about the “war on women” if you’re unprepared to enter a serious, relevant dialogue on the topic?

  19. I see the Bush 9/11 conspiracy fruitcakes are at it today, locally and nationally.

  20. Back to the subject, more examples of the Left’s “War on Women”, especially conservatives.
    Caution: obscene language used.

  21. Hey snuss: link bombing is a waste of time. And, I’m waiting on YOUR answer about the “lies” told about Palin and Bachmann and what that has to do with policy?

  22. The lies and personal attacks are there, in many of the sites that I listed. However, your Leftist blinders let you see such vile commentary as normal and natural.

  23. Gee Ted, talk about a poliical spin job.
    Disgraceful reporting.

  24. Ted, I guess you think everything’s about taxes. Your comparison of a woman’s health care issues and philandering is, like I said before, shameful. Snuss, I never look at your links, but one from Glenn Be ck???? Really?

  25. @Lulu: The truth is the truth, no matter the source. However truth is much, much harder to find, from Obamunist media sources.

    I could have found dozens, if not hundreds more examples, but the ones I chose illustrate the Democrats’ “War On Women” quite well.

  26. Adam Faber

    Ted, we can see that you have posted another rant on a new topic so you have been on here and had an opportunity to respond but have failed to do so. It’s difficult to defend an indefensible position. Not only did you attempt to twist the definition of “war on women” to meet your own needs, but you tried to compare women who died from accidents and cancer to legislative action — that simply doesn’t make sense. I must reiterate: why even write a column about the “war on women” when you’re unprepared to enter a serious, relevant dialogue on the topic?

  27. BTW, Adam, would you call Ted Kennedy’s “waitress sandwich” as a “pro-woman” activity?

    Sen. Ted Kennedy, 1932-2009 — and the unanswerable question

    Kennedy’s transgressions go far beyond murdering Mary Jo Kopechne. He was expelled from Harvard for cheating, only to get back in because his daddy was rich beyond belief. He was the worst husband imaginable, driving his wife over the edge. An absentee father. A sexual harrasser, inventing the term “Waitress Sandwich” with another compassionate liberal lion, Chris Dodd. There was his role in defending the rape of a young woman by his nephew in the “Au Bar” incident. This was not a good person and if the people of Massachussetts had any dignity or compassion, they would have retired him decades ago. It’s apparently easy to “redeem” yourself in the minds of liberals if you’re willing to spend other people’s money by the trillions.
    Sources: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/attytood/Sen_Ted_Kennedy_1932-2009.html

  28. BTW, if you don’t know what a “waitress sandwich’ is, the following describes it, in detail:

    The “waitress sandwich” was the name given to an alleged act of sexual assault by two Senators

    “Dodd and Kennedy were also reported to have made a ‘human sandwich’ with a waitress at La Brasserie, another Capitol Hill restaurant. The report had it that Kennedy threw the woman on Dodd, who was slumped in a chair, and then jumped on top of her. She was said to have run screaming from the room.”

    The victim herself detailed the attack for Penthouse magazine in 1989, which was summarized by the Washington Times:

    “When she put in an appearance in their private retreat – ‘The Teddy Kennedy Fun Room’ – the Massachusetts senator picked her up and heaved her onto a table. The crystal candlesticks and champagne glasses shattered as he grabbed her again and flung her on top of Dodd.

    “Then Kennedy threw himself on top of the woman. The waitress implored Mr. Kennedy to ‘Get off me!’

    “Another waitress entered to find ‘things all tipped over and Kennedy was on top, [the waitress] was in the middle and Dodd was on the bottom.’ At that point the sandwich was disassembled.”

    Snuss, that’s not germane to the topic at hand. Ted is trying to conflate individuals’ indiscretions with an organized effort to advance legislation. Regardless of your positions on any of these issues, they are separate issues and cannot be intertwined as Ted has tried to do.

  30. If you are going to claim that Democrats are more “pro-woman” than Republicans, I can show how hypocritical the Left is on that subject.

    On a related note, the Democrats can’t seem to tell the difference between OUR Navy, and the Russians. Or, perhaps they can.

  31. Adam Faber

    What I’m claiming that you and Ted refuse to acknowledge is that Ted’s entire concept for this post is flawed. He is trying to twist individuals’ actions spanning decades into some sort of legislative agenda. That’s pure spin and he doesn’t want to admit it.

  32. Snuss: just shows what money can get you, doesn’t it. Great health care, victimized women don’t have to worry about placing food on the table, don’t have to worry about cashing in some stock in order to have spending money in college, and on and on. Has nothing to do with legislation at hand.

  33. I don’t understand what Lulu is talking about.

    The hypocritical Liberal farce about Republican’s having a “War on Women” is asinine. There are as many, if not more, Democrats who abuse women, both politically, and personally. The end.

  34. Adam Faber

    No Snuss, not “the end”. Saying “the end” does not magically make you right; it just makes it appear that you’re tired of being wrong.

    Words and terms have meanings and definitions; none of the examples you or Ted cited meet the criteria to be considered a war. To compare the independent actions of individuals to organized legislative action is without merit. Ted has retreated from this discussion because his position is untenable; you might consider following suit.

  35. nugae! gerrae! fabulae! supprime tuum stultiloquium!
