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.’
