Deranged Alarmist Predictions

March 26, 2015

Global warming…oops…make that Climate change alarmists pontificate, extrapolate, and exaggerate in extreme ways to push their views. Senior House Democrat Barbara Lee from California takes it to a level that is as ridiculous as it is apocalyptic.

According to Lee, climate change (though she really means global warming) will cause food and water scarcity that will hit women the hardest. Why? Because it could force many women to barter sexual favors for food. Furthermore, “[F]ood insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health”.

Turning every issue into a women’s issue is getting as old as playing the race card – and of course, global warming has been predicted to disproportionately impact communities of color. Barbara Lee lumps women together with orange-spotted filefish, polar bears, Adelie penguins, North Atlantic cod, golden toads, and Asia – all of which have been predicted to be hit the hardest by global warming.

Things said to be caused, worsened, or damaged by global warming have become ridiculous. The Syrian civil war and the Ebola outbreak may sound crazy, but they seem reasonable compared to other items on an almost endless list. Global warming could produce huge harvests in places where crops have never grown or cause ice bergs to float onto shores where fresh water is desperately needed or provide new lands that are currently uninhabitable, but those predictions do not fit the agenda.

Barbara Lee has no particular background or training qualifying her to make such a prediction. All she has is a religious conviction in her belief of global warming, no doubt blessed by Al Gore, and a feminist axe to grind. Unfortunately, she is a member of the House of Representatives and that gives her a veneer of authority she does not deserve.

Liberal Privilege

March 23, 2015

Over at The Blaze, Matt Walsh speaks plainly and truthfully about society’s granting of privilege to liberal women. It is something most recognize but rarely speak out about for fear of the angry and vicious backlash suffered by Mr. Walsh when he dared speak against rapper Azealia Banks’ ignorant and racist diatribe against white people.

From Matt Walsh at The Blaze

In her (Azealia Banks) Playboy interview/stripping session, she spoke proudly of her hatred for white conservative men, white teenage girls, white farmers, white Middle Americans, and anything else created by or associated with white people…I wrote a piece to retort Banks and to point out her hypocrisies and prejudices…Banks took to Twitter to send me and another conservative, Wayne Dupree, a close up photo of her genitals…followed up with a lewd Tweet to my wife…All of this was applauded by her legions of young, progressive fans…I was repeatedly informed that I am the sexist, the racist, and the bigot…for me to criticize her for sending nude photos…

…the reaction would be slightly different if a white conservative male — say, a country star or something — said in an interview that he hated black Americans, then sent an unsolicited picture of his penis to a black female blogger…The double standard is so bad that it isn’t a double standard at all. For progressives — particularly women, particularly minority women — there is simply no standard to speak of…If you are progressive, and especially a woman, and especially a minority woman, you can lash out in whatever manner you like, launching whatever attacks you like, against whatever group you like, provided the victims aren’t homosexuals or liberal black people…

It’s important to underscore, however, that it’s only liberal women and minorities who wield this incredible privilege. Non-liberals in those groups have the least leeway out of everyone, and can be attacked more viciously than anyone…Liberals, particularly liberal women, are operating in a void without any standards of basic decency. They know society will allow them to say or do whatever…rules don’t apply to liberals, and even less to liberal women, and even less to liberal minority women…

Deaf, Dumb, and Blind

November 7, 2014

Deaf, dumb, and blind ideologues have not been swayed in the least by election results and are out spinning like spiders on steroids. President Obama, who told us his policies were on the ballot, totally ignored that in his voter-defying speech, thus, beginning the current spin cycle.

Nancy Pelosi, the epitome of deaf, dumb and blind, wants to remain as minority leader in the House and is trying to convince everyone that election results had nothing to do with her at all. Her spin is that the results were due to poor voter participation, even insinuating that voting obstacles (voter ID?) were the main culprit.

Pelosi’s blind adherence to Obama’s agenda puts her very near the top of a list of reasons for Democrats’ demise. She has been deaf to the public’s wishes for quite some time and the mentioning of a “non-partisan challenge” in her letter to Democrats is surreal coming from her. It would be wise to put her out to pasture but Democrats may be on enough of a self-destructive path to keep her.

Even after acknowledging that Harry Reid was one of the reasons for election losses, most Democrats remaining in the Senate (speaking of self-destruction) want him as minority leader. Reid, who personally blocked everything coming from the House, now says he looks forward to working together with Mitch McConnell, but not working together is a main reason for Democrats losing the Senate.

The always irrational Daily KOS is worriedwe won’t be able to flex our muscles as the true American majority” for the next two years and inferred that the election losses came because the president “s**ts on immigrants”. One is hard-pressed to see how a totally open border, suspending immigration laws, and promising amnesty for illegals could be seen that way. Then, again, believing the “true American majority” holds similar views proves how delusional the Daily KOS is.

The manufactured “war on women” was supposed to bring votes for Democrats but it backfired, bringing votes for Republicans. Treating the American public as being dumb shows how deaf and blind Democrats have become under an Obama administration used to doing whatever it wants. Perhaps they will now wise up, but with Reid and Pelosi still calling the shots, that is highly unlikely.

Dems “War on Women”

September 11, 2014

The Democrats’ claim of a “GOP war on women” is a smear campaign to get women’s votes; a grab for public funds for abortion and birth control; an attempt to force women into the progressive agenda; an insult to women’s intelligence; and a despicable lie. Sadly, it helped beat Romney, but it is finally losing credibility with the masses.

The White House, attempting to help campaigning Democrats, pushed the “war against women” meme recently with the 77-cents-on-the-dollar gender wage gap talking point. When confronted with the fact that the median income of White House female staffers is 88% that of male staffers, reasons given for the difference actually helped debunk the wage gap claim.

The White House claimed experience, education and hours worked were responsible – the same reasons the Labor Department found responsible for the perceived sex-based wage gap. After taking these factors into consideration, the Labor Department further determined that the actual gap is only 5 to 7 cents on the dollar and other legitimate factors play into that small gap.

Dems also say the battle over “reproductive rights” is part of this “war on women”. Senator Kay Hagan is attacking her Republican challenger, Thom Tillis, as opposing birth control “rights”, but Tillis has joined with other Republican candidates supporting over-the-counter birth control. This would give the “access” to birth control that Dems pretend the GOP doesn’t want for women. It enrages Dems because it will not provide public funds and it will not include free tampons, the latest idea working its way into the “war”.

Hopefully, the biggest downfall for this “war on women” meme will be the growing realization that it insults women’s intelligence. The demeaning and abusive way Republican women are treated by the left clearly displays a lack of respect for any woman unwilling to toe the leftist political line. These attacks often end up as sexist assaults, proving that the only war against women is coming from the left.
