Liberals fear and loathe decent conservative women


By Tom Quiner

What do liberals think of conservative women? They hate them.

They’re quite comfortable publicly putting their misogyny on display in the vilest terms. Here’s a list compiled by the Fellowship of the Minds blog:

  • Keith Olbermann calls Michelle Malkin a lipstick meatbag
  • Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin a “dumb t*at”
  • Ed Schulz calls Laura Ingraham a right-wing slut
  • Sandra Bernhard issues “gang rape” warning to Sarah Palin
  • Sly Sylvester (talk show host) said “…I had heard at one point Rebecca Kleefisch (Republican Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin) pulled a train, but that must have been a different story I was reading about.”
  • David Letterman calls Sarah Palin a slut
  • Keith Olbermann implied that female conservative commentator S. E. Cupp should never have been born
  • Jimmy Fallon’s drummer played “Bit*ch” song during Michele Bachmann’s appearance on his show (ABC called it “quite the trick”)
  • Cloris Leachman calls Sarah Palin a slut on the Wendy Williams show

In fairness, not all liberals hate conservative women. But when you hear so many who feel just fine publicly expressing their loathing in the most vulgar terms, well, you can’t help but sense that misogyny is rampant within their ranks.

The use of the term “slut” is particularly offensive. Promiscuous men of either political persuasion seem to get a pass for their indiscretions, while a faithful wife of 24 years, such as Sarah Palin, has to endure insufferable slurs.

The Left is a vicious crowd toward decent women simply because they don’t like their politics. They clearly are frightened of these classy conservatives.

    They’re frightened of morality

    As a liberal, I’d say it’s pretty indefensible to call a conservative woman – or any woman – a slut, or words to that effect. If you get to the point of petty, personal insults, I think you’ve already lost the argument.

    My only issue here would be with the image you’ve used that seems to imply Sandra Fluke is a “slut”. (A sentiment that conservative Rush Limbaugh has sadly expressed).

    Demeaning women shouldn’t be acceptable for liberals, conservatives or anyone, so thanks, with this post, for at least standing up to some of it.

      I oppose calling liberal, conservative, libertarian, communist, or atheist women sluts. Name-calling is the weapon of choice for those who lack the ability to advance an intelligent argument.

      I agree completely.

      I do find it encouraging that Ann Coulter and Bill Maher are friends. If these two can past their differences, there is hope for all of us.

    To lacunamalachi:

    Tom totally agrees with you. The image is disgusting and Tom is not implying that he thinks Sandra Fluke is a S..t. (A term I can’t even use, and neither does Tom)

    The whole point is that liberals use awful and degrading terms for women who are on the opposite side of the political fence and it is not ever acceptable. But for them, these terms are acceptable if the woman is a conservative.

    Ironic, their feigned shock over Limbaugh’s (more accurate) description of Sandra Fluke, given their similar terms for a faithful wife of 25 years.

    • quinersdiner on April 15, 2013 at 10:22 am

      “Ironic” isn’t a strong enough word.

      • Bob Vance on April 15, 2013 at 11:24 am

        You claim it needs to stop, yet you just endorse that Rush’s name calling is somehow “more accurate”. What exactly is your definition of “slut”?

        • quinersdiner on April 15, 2013 at 11:27 am

          I do not endorse Rush’s name-calling.

    • Bob Vance on April 15, 2013 at 11:30 am

      How do you know she has been faithful her whole marriage? I would wager that most women in the U.S. who have cheated on their husbands consider themselves Christian.

      • quinersdiner on April 15, 2013 at 11:40 am

        My, we’re being awfully cynical today, Bob. You can assume the worst in a person if you choose. I assume the best. For example, I don’t like President Obama’s politics, but I honor him as a husband and father. I don’t KNOW if he’s been faithful, but I am willing to assume the best. Same goes for Ms. Palin.

    I lost what little respect I had when I saw the conflict Palin had with the Alaska school teacher. People true colors come out when they don’t realize they are being recorded.

    Michelle Bachmann has either some of the worst researchers on her staff or she is a really bad liar; neither is good in politics.

    Throughout the Bible, it seems clear that women are to be quiet and submissive to their husbands and not teach or preach. Many see women such as Palin and Bachmann as hypocritical when they say they are Christians yet seem to not follow these Bible passages.

    1 Cor 14:34 As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says.

    1 Tim 2:12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

    Gen 3:16 To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

      THAT is the video that made you lose respect for Palin? LOL She was respectful, she didn’t name call, she explained why she resigned as governor. I don’t see the big deal. Obama and Biden have said far more offensive things in videos. Have you lost all respect for them?

      How about when Obama said Republicans want dirtier air and water? How about when Obama voted “present” on the Born Alive Act as a state representative? Do you find THAT offensive? Irony, thy name is liberal.

      This is the problem with atheists who try to make claims against Christianity: you never take any verses into context with the rest of the Bible. If you take those verses you quoted at face-value without regarding the entire story and roles of women in the Bible, of course you will misinterpret the Bible as being sexist. But it’s not.

      I will spare myself the effort, for I believe the individual who wrote this article did a fine job of clarifying things about Christian women:

      I was a strong atheist myself at one point. Believe me, I would not have devoted myself to a Christian life if I thought I was going to be viewed as less worthy than men in the eyes of God.

      “There is neither male nor female for you are all one in Christ Jesus” Galatians

      God bless you, sir.

    On a broader, economic, socio- and geo-political level, it’s a problem because it means that public policy continues to be hijacked by environmentalist ideologues who have successfully foisted their junk-science, anti-capitalist, self-loathing, misanthropic, hair-shirt propaganda on a credulous public – with results that are already proving disastrous for us all.

      The evidence overwhelmingly supports your contention. Thanks for writing!
