The War on Conservative Women

Comment

I'm sorry Rush Limbaugh called 30-year-old Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a "slut." She's really just another professional femme-a-gogue helping to manufacture a false narrative about the GOP "war on women." I'm sorry the civility police now have an opening to demonize the entire right based on one radio comment — because it's the progressive left in this country that has viciously and systematically slimed female conservatives for their beliefs.

We have the well-worn battle scars to prove it. And no, we don't need coddling phone calls from the pandering president of the United States to convince us to stand up and fight.

At his first press conference of the year on Tuesday, the Nation's Concern Troll explained that he phoned Fluke to send a message to his daughters and all women that they shouldn't be "attacked or called horrible names because they are being good citizens." After inserting himself into the fray and dragging Sasha and Malia into the debate, Obama then told a reporter he "didn't want to get into the business of arbitrating" language and civility. Too late, pal.

The fact is, "slut" is one of the nicer things I've been called over 20 years of public life. In college during the late 1980s, it was "race traitor," "coconut" (brown on the outside white on the inside) and "white man's puppet." After my first book, "Invasion," came out in 2001, it was "immigrant-hater," the "Radical Right's Asian Pitbull," "Tokyo Rose" and "Aunt Tomasina." In my third book, 2005's "Unhinged," I published entire chapters of hate mail rife with degrading, unprintable sexual epithets and mockery of my Filipino heritage.

If I had a dollar for every time libs have called me a "Manila whore" and "Subic Bay bar girl," I'd be able to pay for a ticket to a Hollywood-for-Obama fundraiser.

Self-serving opponents argue that such attacks do not represent "respectable," "mainstream" liberal opinion about their conservative female counterparts. But it was feminist godmother Gloria Steinem who called Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a "female impersonator." It was NOW leader Patricia Ireland who commanded her flock to only vote for "authentic" female political candidates.

It was Al Gore consultant Naomi Wolf who accused the late Jeane Kirkpatrick of being "uninflected by the experiences of the female body."

It was Matt Taibbi, now of Rolling Stone magazine, who mocked my early championing of the tea party movement by jibing: "Now when I read her stuff, I imagine her narrating her text, book-on-tape style, with a big, hairy set of (redacted) in her mouth. It vastly improves her prose."

It was Keith Olbermann, then at MSNBC and now at Al Gore's Current TV, who wrote on Twitter that columnist S.E. Cupp was "a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does" and who called me a "mashed up bag of meat with lipstick on it." He stands by those remarks. Olbermann has been a special guest at the White House.

Some of us have not forgotten when liberal Wisconsin radio host John "Sly" Sylvester outrageously accused GOP Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch of performing "fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee" and sneered that she had "pulled a train" (a crude phrase for gang sex). (Earlier, he called former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a "black trophy" and "Aunt Jemima.")

Or when MSNBC misogynist Ed Schultz called talk show host Laura Ingraham a "talk slut" for criticizing Obama's petty beer summit. Or when Playboy published a list of the top 10 conservative women who deserved to be "hate-f**ked." The article, which was promoted by Anne Schroeder Mullins at Politico.com, included Ingraham, "The View's" Elisabeth Hasselbeck, former Bush spokeswoman Dana Perino, GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann and others. Yours truly topped the list with the following description: a "highly f**kable Filipina" and "a regular on Fox News, where her tight body and get-off-my-lawn stare just scream, 'Do me!'"

And then there's the left's war on Sarah Palin, which would require an entire national forest of trees to publish.

A reporter asked Obama to comment on examples of liberal hate speech at Tuesday's press conference. He whiffed, of course. This is, after all, the brave leader who sat on his hands while his street thugs attacked tea party mothers and grandmothers as "Koch whores" during the fight over union reform in Wisconsin. (As I reported last week, his re-election campaign is now targeting the Koch brothers' private foundation donors in a parallel effort to chill conservative speech and activism.) He's leading by example.

So no, we won't get any phone calls from Mr. Civility. Acknowledging the war on conservative women would obliterate The Narrative. Enjoy the silence.

Michelle, I would like to comment, I surfed onto your column and I have never read anything by you before, I am appalled at the racist, bigoted hate remarks that you have endured during your life. They have no place, anywhere. As I read further into your aticle I found myself getting a visceral reaction to your words. My reactino wasn't connected to your race or culture. My stomach churling was to the amount of venom running through your veins, I get the same reaction when I read Ann Coulter. Two beautiful women with a venomous hatred towards non conservative extremists. How could two beautiful, thinking, intelligent women get highjacked by the Tea Party whack jobs? I can understand it coming from the uneducated dolts who are the party faithful, but I am truly stymied as to how they captured you, it's almost spooky, like the Manchurian Candidate. I would line my bedroom with tinfoil if I were you, just a suggestion.

"...the last thing we need is Catholic breeders." - Bloom Hilda. 3/6/2012

There is quite a bit of venom for Catholics running through Bloom Hilda's veins as this quote attests. Perhaps conservative women from Manilla are lower down the list of "last thing we need" . Number 2 with a bullet, Bloom Hilda?

Re: Tom
Oh, all right Tom, I'll bite, I'm having fun, so I'll respond to the Catholic bait, even though I was clear on earlier posts as to exactly what I meant. You have followed me from article to article like a pit bull puppy with a chew toy in it's mouth, beseeching me to grab the other end and play with you. Even to the point that you are cross posting unrelated quotes to new sites that have nothing to do with the quote. But, like any softie looking at those sad puppy eyes, I will pick up the toy and play with you.
Catholicism: I have nothing against Catholics or any other organized religion, I believe that everyone has the right to believe in whatever they want. When it affects me and my earth, my medical care, and my bedroom, I have to get involved. I am not going to redirect my quote to the original article and post what I wrote, I don't have time or the inclination to bore other readers with old news. I believe that no one has the right to unlimited breeding, I don't care who you are or what religion you follow. The earth is completely overwhelmed and in crises, multiple breeders of any kind are completely irresponsible. I totally respect the 95% of Catholic women who use birth control and ignore the insanity about sex that the Catholic church and Santorum preach. It is reckless, If you need more data, I suggest you look up over population and famine on Wikipedia.
Re: Conservative women from Manilla, I don't care what nationality she is, her views are that of the extreme GOP. like other extremists of the GOP she is rabid, vitriolic, small minded, and in the throes of the Tea Party. Until the religious right of the party are kicked to the curb, she and the other hatemongering ilk of her party will continue to bring the party down. Most of the country is moderate and independent, and half of this country are women. Michelle should think of that before she climbs into bed with the anti-woman party.

I find it amusing that public personality fame whores who are paid to speak their opinion can possibly compare their experiences related to their public persona as even close to the experience of a private citizen held up to ridicule by the stinkiest fame whore of all. Vilifying a private citizen for expressing her viewpoint and using her as bait to rile up his base is abhorrent. For Michelle and others who attempt comparisons to themselves is to dismiss or try to lessen the outrageous actions of one of their own and is contemptible.

Bravo, Michelle! Keep shining light on this collection of liberal cockroaches. The more their snide, supercilious misogyny is taken from their insular echo chambers and exposed for all of America to see, the more people will be repulsed by their utter lack of civility - not to mention their repugnant political/social philosophy. I think this election cycle in particular will be a fun one to grab the popcorn and watch the Left's complete implosion.

Re: demecra zydeem

So do all of your comments prove the point of the column so well? Or did you really just nail this one. The person's status doesn't matter. And that is not the liberal argument anyway - they are mad at Rush for using those specific words - they did not express anger at him for attacking a non-media person.

Please keep up the good fight. As a father and husband, I am glad their are intelligent, strong, and beautiful women like yourself who are willing to stand up to those who try to enslave our daughters in a world of self-righteous sexual deviance. You are the true feminist. Thank you.

BloomHilda, the venom did not come from Michelle, but from those who dumped it on her. You didn't notice that she did not insult any of the people quoted? If they looked bad, it was their own words that did it.
And also, Ms Fluke was not exactly an "innocent private citizen" but a known activist who set it up.
