What is it about conservative women that makes liberal men hate us so very much?
Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, Condaleeza Rice, S.E. Cupp… They’re all prominent conservative women who get lots of hateful, unabashed flak from liberals.
Sure, the liberal women get in some good digs on their conservative rivals too. But let’s face it: women are almost expected to be catty. It’s not an excuse, but we are more observant then men and so we’re more likely to take issue with minute details.
It takes additional effort for men to stoop to that level, yet Democrats seem go there without any hesitation when a conservative woman steps onto the scene.
Former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian is the latest such example. On Friday at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner, he addressed the assembled audience of Democrats, telling them that conservative South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s challenger would “send her back to wherever the hell she came from.”
Then, after that went viral, he tried to explain how all he was “suggesting is that she needs to go back to being an accountant in a dress store rather than being this fraud of a governor we have.”
Which makes it soooooooo much better. Thanks for that clarification, Dick.
Incidentally, last year at the Democratic National Convention, Harpootlian intentionally likened Haley to Hitler’s mistress when he said she was “down in the bunker á la Eva Braun.”
Also incidentally, the current South Carolina Governor isn’t just female – a purportedly cherished and underprivileged group according to Democrats – but she’s also Indian-American: a minority; a person who has to struggle just to survive, much less thrive; somebody who only the despicable Republicans would ever say something mean about.
(Bad Republicans! Bad!)
Yet all of the rules about being nice to “the little people” goes out the window whenever they happen to be conservative. If Republicans had made even one of the comments Harpootlian did, they would have been classified as misogynists and racists.
Democrats though? They can get away with their hateful speech much more easily.
In their books, women and minorities are mere tools to be used and discarded as necessary. So when those tools don’t act the way they want them to, it’s ok to throw them across the room or into the trash.
Only problem is that conservative women don’t take kindly to either. Sorry boys.
