Democrats may implode from cognitive dissonance (1)

Ellie K (1804464) | 1 year,2 days | (#44418983)

Democrat behavior toward women seems hopelessly inconsistent to me.

If they wanted President Obama to be a decent president, they wouldn't have let Hillary get anywhere close to the White House, let alone be his Secretary of State, a top cabinet position. She was so ridiculously unqualified, and performed accordingly. Now they're championing her for 2016. My mother said that Hillary should be required to have a mental competency test first, after that fall and concussion, at 70 years of age.

Regarding Anthony Weiner, I am appalled that he was (in effect) tried and punished twice. He already resigned once for what he did. His wife knows about it, and the main stream (mostly liberal) press shouldn't shame her. The people of the city of New York knew about his background, knew that there might be follow-up incidents, yet they still wanted to elect him as mayor (well, he was the leading contender). Unlike many Democratic policies, this was about a candidate whom the voting public supported. Who knows what their alternative will be now?

Regarding Monica Lewinsky, I wonder where the National Labor Relations Board and Equal Opportunity Office were? Oh, that's right; it's okay if Bill Clinton sexually exploits young women who work for him.

Oh, right! Let's see YOU sell 60 billion dollars worth of heavy weaponry to a single country. This is business, and in that context, the woman deserves the highest award possible, right after Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, Wells Fargo, HSBC, the zetas and the gulf cartels....

When You Grow a Pussy (1)

You figure out what should be done with it, how, and for whom.

And all of the human trafficking victims say: "Really?"
I'm supposed to wallow in shame & humiliation over accusations made by our domestic feminazis, who ain't got peep #1 to say about foreign abuses underway. Really.
What a sick world.

That is a slavery and coercion issue. Not will and independent volition.

You cannot say that trafficking and child-marriage is an issue that emerges from an abundance of supporting women's personal choices or empowerment.

Or maybe you can, if you wish to change fact or context to suit your ideology.

In fact, your PJ media article seeks to control women's behavior through shaming and humiliation - but is more aligned with the Taliban, and control of women, rather than the individual autonomy of conscience familiar to Jean Jacques Rousseau or Henry David Thoreau.

Half of that is out of context at best (1)

Sure, the democratic party was the favorite of slave owners, back when slavery was still legal. But that was before the GOP and the DNC effectively flipped positions sometime before FDR. Now the people who are arguing in favor of the modern equivalent of slavery are 100% from the GOP, so it makes no sense to associate someone else with it.

However the fact that you are trying to claim that making abortion illegal - and hence inaccessible to those without the wealth to travel to someplace where it is legal - is somehow a great gift to the african american community is bullshit at best. It is possible that a full ban on abortion could end up costing more minority lives in this country than the current patchwork of abortion restrictions as many would seek out unsafe abortions and die in the process. Just because you want to make them criminals for seeking an abortion doesn't mean they won't seek it out; if you really want women to stop seeking abortion you need to start by making birth control more accessible and actually being honest about it. Sure, abstinence is the only method that is 100% effective at preventing pregnancy (aside from that pesky bit in the bible that claims otherwise) but that is not practical for most humans. If conservatives would stop with their utter bullshit and baldfaced lies about birth control we could prevent many abortions from happening.

No, the flip started in '64 when all the old dixiecrats turned republican after Johnson signed a pact with the devil. The process was complete about the time of Reagan's election. But the democratic party, despite the Obama thing, is still the party of George Wallace, Robert Byrd, and Joe Lieberman. And it was Eisenhower (you know who he was, right? He was the guy who 'invented the interstate') who sent troops in against a democrat governor to begin school desegregation, a perfect case for federal action when the locals fail to protect peoples' rights. Now the democrats, along with the republicans have SWAT sent in to arrest the kids.

Eh, but what do you care? The party that throws the occasional bone is always going to be the 'lesser evil' to its beneficiaries (and fanatics).

Oh, and more on topic. To understand the anti-abortion movement, Look no further [usnews.com] ... The fear of becoming a minority is very real to some people.

Oh, so now you're gonna do it on purpose... (1)

To the rest of your silliness there's nothing to add, since you aren't listening anyway. You simply pin on others a caricature of yourself.
