What a complete load of bull-hockey! (Isn’t that a word?) I’ve mentioned that I am on the DCCC email list because I am sick and masochistic. Signing up to receive Democratic propaganda is the Republican version of being an emotional cutter. I don’t know why I do it, I just have to.
So I get this email that says “Vile” in the subject box. It goes on to talk about how the Republicans are continuing the “War on Women Crusade” by vowing to get rid of Planned Parenthood among other things. So evidently this morning people like Eric Cantor, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan woke up and said. Oh my God! We hate women and we must destroy them. Give me a flippin’ break.
And a follow-up email actually said that Republicans want women to get the shit beat out of them. They didn’t use those words but they said that Republicans want women to suffer at the hands of Domestic violence and do away with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). And we wonder why the hell there is such a great divide between parties. They work tirelessly day and night at fanning the flames of divisiveness.
FOR THE RECORD! Republicans DO NOT want to do away with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
”Nobody opposes the reauthorization of this legislation,” Jon Kyl of Arizona, the second-ranking Senate Republican, told CNN. “If you follow the Judiciary Committee work on it, the questions had to do with the additions that have been made to this bill related to illegal immigrant visas, related to the additional sums of money and grants that would be available and the like.
Senator Jeff Sessions is quoted on CNN as saying…
“I’m always for the Violence Against Women bill,” said Sessions who voted for a GOP alternative bill that was defeated in the Democratic-majority Judiciary Committee. But he said every time VAWA is up for reauthorization, “if you don’t agree with everything that’s in it, they just attack you as being anti-women.”
When will the Republicans stop being on the defense and go on the offense? Nothing is ever won by just playing defense. They need to get this out there now and make it very clear what it is they support or do not support. But this “war on women” bullshit rhetoric has GOT to be shot down. Republicans WANT women to keep their rights. That is freedom my friends. The Democrats want to crawl in my bed with me. Um, ew. Not gonna happen even if they provide me a free lobster dinner. Which I’m sure is next and the Republicans will claim, “We’re not paying for your Lobster” to which the Democrats will blast out emails stating, “Republicans want women to starve to death.”
