There is just no end to the examples. They just keep coming.
I have said plenty of times that the only difference between the far left and the far right is the far right doesn’t even bother pretending they give a rat’s ass about women, and every single day, they prove me right.
When Sarah Palin was treated to sexist, misogynist behaviors from the far left, I defended her. You need only do a search on this blog to confirm that. I may not agree with her on plenty of things, and to be honest, sometimes she makes me wince, but I defended her.
When Michelle Bachmann was told to act like a lady by that decrepit old fart Arlin Specter, I came to her defense, even though I probably agree with her 10 percent of the time she opens her mouth.
I did this in spite of the fact that, in the back of my mind, I remembered what the far right did to Hillary for 15 years. It was so horrid that the Obama people didn’t even have to create their own photoshopped graphics of Hillary. All they had to do was swipe them from Republican blogs. They didn’t even have to invent the Hillary Nutcracker, but boy were they EVER offended when a Sarah Nutcracker appeared, eh? Well so was I. The problem here is plenty of us Disgusted Democratic bloggers Give, but we never Receive the same respect from our counterparts.
I defended these women because it’s the right thing to do for the future of America’s women as leaders. It isn’t about what their political ideology is, it’s about RESPECT. It’s about calling people out for behaving in ways and doing things they would never do to men. It’s about not standing for remarks that are designed to deliberately degrade a woman candidate and lessen her value next to the opponent with the little dick he pretends is big. It doesn’t matter to me what the letter in parenthesis is after his name, a deliberately degrading man should not be allowed to get away with such behaviors. He should be held up as the terrible example he is.
Even after joining with them during election 2008, the Republican Party never fails to disappoint me. I watched some nose-picking yahoo in Texas post an ad on Drudge with Sheila Jackson Lee’s mouth taped up. Did I hear a word about that from a single Republican? Nope.
Now we have another far right crackpot pig running against a Congresswoman in Ohio and a Medina, Ohio GOP Flier has this to say:
“take Betty Sutton out of the House and put her back in the kitchen,”
Now, I don’t even know who Betty Sutton is. That’s not the point. The point is Sexist Bullshit, which every woman in this country should be sick of by now. Not Democratic Sexist Bullshit. or Republican Sexist Bullshit. ALL Sexist Bullshit is offensive. Sexist Bullshit towards one woman creates license to do it to any other woman, regardless of party. You would think everybody would Get That Point. But nope.
Please take a minute to stop over to Murphy’s place, where you can find out how to complain about the GOP flier remark, not that it will matter to the dirtbag Bill Heck, who doesn’t even have the courtesy to apologize for the remark, but instead thinks it’s just fine as-is. But at least people like this will know that one day, we may help them reap what they sow.
…But will I read a word about this from a single Republican blogger, much less a female Republican blogger? Nope.
And that is why I am sick of choosing between Death By Fire and Death By Drowning for women. That is what choosing between the far left that hijacked my party and the far right that hijacked the other party means to me. I’m done with these two parties. They disgust me.
From here on in, the Republicans will get from me exactly what Democratic women get from them when one of Their Own Precious Boys attacks a woman opponent using degrading Gender remarks:
