For almost a year, I’ve been writing and talking about the Democrats’ attempt to turn women into the next big victim-group-turned-voting-bloc just in time for the mid-terms. Consequently, they also attempted to turn straight men into blocs of their perpetrators. (Toxic masculinity anyone?) I believe this has been one of the prime motivators for the blatant politicization of the #MeToo movement.
You may remember that Democrats were forced to turn hoards of women they had prepared to celebrate a Hillary victory into hoards of women to protest Donald Trump the day after his inauguration. The were able to produce an impressive number of pink pussy hats and full-body vagina costumes on relatively short notice for the occasion too.
In October of 2017, Democrats were handed a gift by Ronan Farrow, or maybe they just timed it perfectly. Either way, the Harvey Weinstein case broke and then the #MeToo movement exploded. Democrats used it to clean Houses and Senates in state governments all over the country. They ousted 31 male lawmakers in almost as many states. With it, Democrats hoped to create a mandate for women to assume elected office by painting all men including Brett Kavanaugh as ogres, harassers, and rapists, What could be easier?
In the post mid-term analysis, Democrats have succeeded in sending that binder full of women to congress. The final numbers aren’t in yet due to controversial and questionable re-counts. The winning Democrats include Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who have made no secret of their virulent hatred for Israel and the Jewish People. The reliably leftist media was quiet about that while touting the first two Muslim women to serve in Congress so they could show their moral superiority in the “tolerance” department.
Funny how they were also quiet about a slew of Republican women who won Gubernatorial and congressional races. That wasn’t supposed to happen! To the Left, Republican women aren’t really women. They are just evil Republicans. Now Liberals are engaged in throwing hatred and blame at white women for refusing to toe the liberal line and reject Donald Trump.
Will these Democrats ever stop with the identity politics? Nope. They think of you only as a member of a group to be manipulated and coerced into voting and behaving the way they want. The very idea that you are an individual is contrary to every Leftist bone in their bodies.
We must put an end to their wave of political bigotry with every bone in our individualist bodies—especially when it leads to threats, intimidation, trespassing and violence as it did when wolves arrived at Tucker Carlson’s door recently. One of the reasons these authoritarian trespassers are losing their minds is because they don’t want it known that people are happier and more productive when they are acknowledged for being an individual rather than for being a member of a group. Let’s keep doing everything we can to remind them.
