It’s time for Conservatives to be the Adults in the Room on #MeToo
Should we counter the #MeToo movement?
If so, how?
A poll by The Colorado Women’s Alliance revealed that just 1% of female swing voters consider sexual harassment to be an important issue for the mid-terms. Should we bother to put together a counter “movement” if so few women care?
Republicans too often accept the language of the left and allow them to frame every issue. This is just one opportunity to be proactive.
If the poll is accurate, then 99% of respondents haven’t been moved by the #MeToo movement, despite the Left’s zeal. So why are they still trying?
Please see my piece in The American Thinker (6/5/2018) for answers to these and other related questions. My answer to the question posed by the title, is an unequivocal Yes! We should absolutely counter the #MeToo movement, and we should create a hashtag of our own to do it! Here’s what we’ve decided to call it:
- In World War II, the WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) were called upon by the navy to help in the war effort.
- Today, we have a cultural emergency and it is conservative women who are urgently needed to take the lead.
- It’s not a “blue wave,” it’s a “New Wave!”
- “Wave if you’re not a victim!”
- This hashtag and our accompanying movement can be used by other groups who have been made into mascots by the Left. Brandon Straka burst onto the scene with #WalkAway. Candace Owens is expected to introduce a hashtag too. The more the merrier! Fledgling movements like these can combine together or stand alone to counter the head-scratching narratives which the Left constantly spews into the popular culture.
To reach as many conservative women as possible using public speaking, social media, video, etc., and then urge and encourage them to reach the rest!
- We don’t want to be characterized as victims.
- We welcome the kind of accountability that comes with the privilege of adulthood.
- We don’t expect to be believed or garner votes simply because we are women.
- We believe rape and sexual assault are serious crimes. They are made trivial by lumping them together with an awkward proposition or a boorish comment.
- We support due process in every case and on its own merits.
- We love strong men!
Our President has given us a master class in courage and a roadmap for how to fight back. We will apply each of our unique styles to bring clarity and discernment to this sorely needed discussion. We believe that men and women alike stand to benefit by our effort.

WHAT IS STRATEGIC VOTING?
Democrats have been meddling in Republican primaries for years. They even donated a half million dollars to Dan Maes which helped him win the Republican primary. They have always known how valuable it is to be able to choose one’s opponent. It’s time for Republicans to start dealing from the deck the Democrats keep stacking.
In 2016, voters approved the terrible, Proposition 108, which allows unaffiliated electors to vote in a major party’s primary without being a member.
Just like same-day voter registration and all mail-in ballots, Prop 108 is another in a long line of initiatives Democrats have concocted to keep helping them win. They certainly don’t spend millions to change our election laws so we can win!
Republicans need to give Democrats a taste of their own medicine.
This is the perfect year for Republicans to start fighting strategically. First, the governor’s race is a must-win due to re-districting. Second, Democrats will have competitive primaries in three of the four statewide races. That rarely happens. Two out of four of our statewide candidates will be running unopposed. That rarely happens!
Here’s the strategy and it’s easier than pinning a tail on a donkey: Until May 29th, you can become unaffiliated online, with the click of a button. You can change it back after the primary just as easily. By doing this, you will receive BOTH Democrat and Republican primary ballots. Watch the campaigns as you always do, and see how they battle for your vote on primary day, June 26!
You can still choose to vote in the Republican primary, or cast your vote for the weakest slate of Democrats. This could help all Republicans in the general election—a lot! The ballot you send in is the one that will be counted. It’s that simple.
Of course, not everyone will like this idea or choose to participate. That’s fine too. We never march in lock step. We’re Republicans!
Not surprisingly, I have opinions about who are the weakest Democrat candidates— particularly in the gubernatorial race. There will be plenty of time to talk about it.
For now, let’s take advantage of every opportunity we have to win in this critical election and let’s encourage our friends to do the same.
