The Sad Fate of Democrat Women

July 28th, 2013 - 7:05 am

“I’m for abortion and free birth control!”

It’s always a little galling (not to mention hilarious) for those of us on the right to reflect that the Democratic Party — the party of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, and family-destroying social programs — the party of Detroit, New Orleans, Newark, and Baltimore — the party that facilitates a black abortion rate that would bring a smile to the face of Planned Parenthood’s genocidally racist founder — has somehow managed to sell itself to African Americans as the friend of black people!

But it’s beginning to be equally galling (and equally comic) to reflect that the Democrats have also contrived to present themselves as the party of women.

This is the party whose most powerful senator left his probable mistress to drown after a car accident; the party whose most popular living president is a serial philanderer and accused rapist; the party whose most prominent woman rose to that prominence by virtue of her stand-by-your-man loyalty to a louse; and now the party of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, two men who have humiliated their wives with truly creepy behavior and yet seek to continue their political careers regardless.

We all make mistakes and it’s not that the GOP hasn’t got its share of sexual shenanigans, but the Republican establishment doesn’t routinely make excuses for its recidivist miscreants or make icons of their victimized spouses. The Dems…? They seem to think their political agenda somehow excuses their personal behavior. I joked on the Ricochet podcast last week that the party’s new slogan should be, ”Women — We Treat You Like Dirt, But At Least You Can Kill Your Unborn Children!”

And let's not forget John Edwards - the lecherous cretin Democrat who cheated on his cancer-stricken wife, fathered a child with the mistress & then lied about it to America. The best part of the Edwards meme is that he was busted by the National Enquirer!

Sick. But there is so much disturbing pathology clattering around in the souls of feminists that it's hard to keep track of it all.

But they want to be treated like dirt. It conforms to their self-loathing, derived from their refusal to face up to the fact of their guilt.

There are plenty of women who prefer strong, decent men to the Wieners & Spitzers of this world. We call them "married." Unsurprisingly, they tend not to vote Democrat. The question for us is, how are we failing our daughters so that they grow up to be needy, vulnerable, twenty-something progressives, instead of strong, independent-minded conservatives?

First things first. STOP calling them the "Democratic" party!! There is NOTHING democratic about the Democrat party! I get so tired of seeing this in print. Please, just call them what they are - the Democrat party.

Exactly right!

Not only is "Democrat party" grammatically correct ("Democratic Party" is NOT), it has the added benefit of annoying the Democrats!

Win win! :D

The more left-wing the woman, the more likely she is to end up bitter and lonely. The ideology she's swallowed whole contributes to behavior that leaves her emotionally calloused, cynical, and manipulative. Bringing Marx's class struggle into the bedroom is guaranteed to cause one failed relationship after the other. Eventually, she's too old to have children, dates become fewer, and then she's on the shelf, just like in the days of Jane Austen. Meanwhile, conservative women of faith succeed in finding and marrying good men. To find the right person, it's necessary to be the right person, and it's very hard to become the right person in the absence of a spiritual foundation. Together, conservative men and women of faith build families on a foundation of love and trust. The secular left is sterile; but the faithful right is fruitful. Men who want marriage, not cheap sex, need to seek out women of faith who are pro-life. That means that men who want marriage, a loving family, and a hearth that's warm in every sense must become men of faith themselves. A good starting point is to just say no and quit dating liberal women. Conservative women also tend to be more attractive and less materialistic, a great combination.

Thank you for your words. Agree completely. There is a very vocal minority of men who frequent PJM who believe all women are lazy, greedy shrews. It's too easy to become discouraged and imagine all men feel that way.
Most people who end up with duds as spouses either looked in the wrong place or had the wrong set of requirements. Not all mind you-- there of plenty of tragic stories of folks who, through no fault of their own, ended up in a nightmare marriage. I sympathize with these folks. Many of them are my friends, male and female alike.
Thank you for affirming the value of marriage.

"(An) effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection."

So women became, as Andrew so eloquently phrased it, "a collection of damp holes". And now, any ol' "damp hole" will do and the gender doesn't matter to a lot of folks, and the wymyn are desperately trying to divert attention back toward their "girl parts" by dressing up all in pink and claiming that vaginas aren't really useless because liberal wymyn VOTE with them. It's just pathetic.

The Left loves the subservient, and has the means to keep them that way. It worked in Detroit.

I remember as a child seeing a commercial on TV that caused my parents to exclaim, "That's pornographic." Then to their chagrin, they had to explain what they meant to their children. You see, back then after supper (that Mom cooked and the whole family sat down together to eat), the whole family would watch TV together or play games or something. Now those ads are commonplace and the TV shows are worse. I don't own a TV anymore. I can get all the news and shows I would ever want with limited commercials off the internet—and I don't have to plan around some studio's schedule.

I can't remember the last time I watched TV, other than seeing what is on in an airport, waiting room, etc.

My children have never lived in home where broadcast or cable TV was present.

The only woman who has been abused and deceived by a politician that actually threw the bum out was Mrs. Sanford. She was a Republican and she showed him the door. The rest as far as I know like being doormats.

The left created the cultural swamp we all have to live with, the culture that allows men to act in ways that 50 years ago would have ruined their (and their family's) lives and encourages women to become their accomplices. And we all watch the inevitable sexual scandals of the wealthy elite unfold in the media and our attention and mild criticism tells the young this is normal and so we, too, are accomplices. Meanwhile, the poor who emulate this behavior take on all the suffering that the elites can avoid. And our society spirals ever downward.
