The Democratic Party’s War on Women

spitzer_weiner_big_7-24-13-1

When I was a kid growing up in fifties Manhattan, if my mother had told me there would be a flasher running for mayor of New York, my mouth would have dropped open. Flashers were those guys I was supposed to run away from in Central Park.

But now we have Anthony Weiner, a flasher of the Internet sort, who exposes himself to random women online, before and after having apologized publicly for it, actually (as of this writing) still campaigning for mayor of our biggest city and financial center.

Weiner is no mere adulterer as described by Flaubert, Tolstoy and thousands of lesser writers. Or even a compulsive womanizer à la Bill Clinton. He is a genuine weirdo, straight out of the pages of Krafft-Ebing’s Psychopathia Sexualis, the kind that really do jump out of the bushes in public parks.

Making this even more bizarre, his wife, Huma Abedin, appears to be standing by him in the face of this immense public humiliation.

Why she may be doing that, I will discuss in a moment, but it’s worth noting that Weiner is not alone among prominent Democrats these days in his assaults on women. San Diego Mayor and former Congressman Bob Filner evidently can’t keep his hands off any female within a radius of three hundred feet and seems about to lose his job after only eight months. And we all know about Eliot “Client #9″ Spitzer, the great seeker of justice who prosecutes prostitutes while patronizing them, now back running for New York comptroller and, like Weiner, dragging his spouse along with him.

Here’s a thought experiment: Imagine a Mayor Anthony Weiner consoling someone’s teenage daughter with a hug after the next 9/11. Problem? Okay, maybe Comptroller Spitzer will do it.

Not only are these men sleazy hypocrites in their politics, they are deeply misogynistic in their behavior — and yet the soi-disant “progressive” crew of female politicians (Hillary Clinton, Kirsten Gillibrand, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Elizabeth Warren, et al.) are strangely silent.

Where is the true “War on Women” and who’s waging it? Think this one through, my “liberal” friends.

I guess as long as these guys vote for free government condoms, everything’s okay.

Of course, it’s not. These people have shown themselves to be absolutely repellent liars (and, as I noted, misogynists) unworthy of any sort of public trust on any subject.

We are convinced that if a Democratic politician were to rape a 12 year-old
girl in a park, in broad daylight, in front of 12 witnesses, that within a month
his constituents would have forgiven him and he would be back in office or
on the campaign trail. Yes there are a few Republican philanderers and sexual
deviants, but Democrats take the cake.
Weiner, Spitzer, Ted Kennedy, and Bill Clinton; all of them
forgiven and allowed to quickly return to public life as if using women as
sexual doormats was the right and proper thing to do. Well, it's not......is it?
And the wives of these 'men' ("stand by your man") are just as culpable, as they hang on in hopes of political and monetary rewards down the line, which are just too enticing.
We are indeed a very sick and degenerate society.
Good luck, America.

mickeymat, that is PATHETIC.

if you will recall, Sanford also went AWOL on the job and lied to his constituents. He disgraced the values voters who had given him their faith. He had four sons at home whom he betrayed. What a sickening example of fatherhood!

His return to politics was equally cringe-inducing, including a speech that one conservative writer described as "therapeutic psychobabble with an ill-fitting Christian overlay."

Why on earth made this man think he deserved to return to public service? What, besides narcissism, an addiction to fame, and an overweening sense of entitlement?

You can quantify these scandals until the cows come home -- one woman, two marriages, one prostitute, one confession, blah blah -- it makes no difference to me. It's the qualities I listed above that all these sociopaths share. Term limit them all.

HAHAHAHAHA snort HAHAHAHAHAHAHA ohhhh republicans are so funny, if i had a dollar for every man who is creepy crawly sexting nuts i would be a millionaire.
atleast democrats are not taking womans tampons to keep them from protesting the antisafe take over the uterus bill.

*138 Senate Republicans voted AGAINST the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)Senate Votes

*172 House Republicans voted AGAINST The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act House Votes

Two women Democrats in the MI house were banned from speaking after using the word *vagina* in an abortion bill debate

yeah who has a war on woman... im pretty sure if not both parties its the republicans cause smart woman dont buy it. We know you are just trying to distract us from the real war on woman.

Your comment is rather incoherent but the VAWA and Lily Ledbetter "Fair Pay" Act were both frauds on women that did women no benefit.

Of course, all sex is creepy to "conservatives"...unless it involves taking a "wide stance" in bathroom stalls or hitting on Congressional pages...then it's ok. Having sex with women is a lot different than taking away their rights and making them second class citizens...which is the aim of the GOP and it's religionist neo-fascist lunatics. You can try to spin it all around but women are not as stupid as Republicans think. That's why women came out in force last election to flush "conservatism" down the toilet...where it belongs.

I'm afraid tony68 is right. Women know (it's an easy issue that's easy to understand, even by low-information voters) that repubs want to outlaw all abortions, all embryonic stem cell research, & all gay marriage. Santorum & his Catholic only anti birth control talk was the last straw for women.
EVERYONE is disgusted by the recent lawmakers' perverted behavior, but the inability of women (married women too) to control their own bodies is the motivation for women to understand the REAL War on Women!

And so that's your excuse for the Democrats accepting politicians who actually do abuse women in reality - as opposed to your fantasy?

I know I am late to the party; I get badly behind on my reading.

It all starter with Chappaquiddick.

When Teddy walked, for Leftist Democrats, it was Open Season on Women, and still is.

No other explanation.

Just to be fair, Sen. Gillibrand took the lead in organizing women voters to support Spitzer's primary opponent, the thankfully bland, with intact family, Scott Stringer.

But, yes, the Dems, and especially Gillenbrand in 2010, have been shameful in using fear to drive female voter turnout. That 2010 strategy works, just ask new Sen. Ed Markey.

My favorite part of the NYC mayor contest is that Catsimidis, whose daughter married Cox-Nixon's son at a $2million wedding, featuring Hillary and Schumer on the guest list, well, Catsimidis is running as a Clinton Democrat in the GOP primary.

Weiner is now tanking, ZERO endorsements, and a real clown show.

Spitzer is harder to battle. After all, Giuliani brought his then-mistress into Gracie Mansion when his wife Donna and their children were sleeping in their rooms.
Mayor Mike and Gov Andrew both live with women without marriage, which seems to be why Spitzer is polling as deserving forgiveness, except his real problem is how he disrupted New York's 'government' for four years.
besides the image of sweaty black socks. yuk.

Is more evidence needed of the corruption - the ROT - of the nation as society than these two DARE to present themselves to "The People" as their "representatives"?

AND are given every encouragement, not only financial but "moral" support, from their incestuous social and political fellow travellers. In/from government, Media and stars of stage/ screen and radio. Laughingly or contemptuously naming themselves "compassionate liberals " and yes Democrats.

The Stars of that political faction as exemplars of and for the rot lining up to advance their assaults on the integrity of the political/social system. Integrity of the system?

Unfortunately dependent on citizens' willngness to accept such damaged and destructive characters as their representatives.

But as "Democrats and Friends" of the Kennedy/Clinton/Obama ilk - could we expect less?

The correlation between posturing on women's rights and the contemptuous and abusive treatment of women by leftist or 'liberal' politicians is overwhelming. Some of the conservatives also go awry - more often with boys, seems like. Weird.

The cautious speculation about MB and Islamic ties is better than not risking speculation at all. The evidence, though, is for long-term, steady and successful penetration of the American political system by various agents of different forces in the Muslim world. People are very late to the party.

I absolutely loathe democrats (marxists) who have been training young girls to be whores for more than 40 years now - and in the classroom no less!

The west was the only culture on the whole planet in all of history that revered and cherished their women. The leftists have turned them into trash who murder their unborn.

we would just like the option to not carry a ded fetus within us or if we are to die during childbirth because of the unborn we would rather live. At least democrats signed the violence against woman act and the lilly ledbetter fair pay act. unlike republicans who would rather ban tampons to try and keep out woman but are not worried about guns at all... and as for turning us into whores better to be a knowledgeable whor who understands safe sex and birth control then to try and redefine rape.

Still incoherent talking points. The whole Lily Ledbetter thing was a fraud - Ledbetter herself gave false testimony to Congress about her case.

Could somebody tell me what the hell is wrong with New York (city and state)? Are they just numb? Does proven character and moral normalcy, let alone exemplification, mean *nothing* to these snobs? To twist a lyric: "Where have you gone, Rogers & Hammerstein, New Yorkers turn their lonely eyes to you" ...

Yeah - just like Spain with the Madrid bombing, New Yorkers have bellied up pretty fast, considering they were the last people I would have thought could be tamed so easily.
