From the website of right-wing tea party extremist Assembly candidate Molly McGartland comes this absolutely bizarre screed accusing liberals of being “anti-women.”
Liberal politicians constantly accuse conservatives of conducting a War on Women while liberals are the ones doing all the damage. Their words about it are just propaganda. Their actions, on the other hand, do real harm.
Maybe instead of constantly accusing conservatives of being anti-women, liberals should stop being anti-women themselves. But don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen.
The biggest offense is to teach women the only path for success is acting more like a man. Liberals ignore important differences between the sexes. The real power with being a woman is in raising wonderful children, supporting and loving one man, providing and caring for your family, and spiritually guiding your family.
What I don’t understand about McGartland’s screed is why she seems to think there are “important differences between the sexes” when it comes to raising children, supporting one’s partner, providing and caring for your family, and spiritually guiding your family. After all, in my family (and no doubt countless others) my wife and I both raise our children, support and love each other, provide and care for our family, and spiritually guide our family. Then again, my wife and I both believe that our marriage is a partnership, and in that partnership it falls to both of us to do all the things McGartland mentioned, because in our partnership we’re equals.
MCGartland’s screed about the supposed liberal “war on women” continued with this gem:
Constant Daily Hassles
There are so many frustrations women face. They have to make lunch for the kids because children hate Obama meals. They have to reteach their children about sexuality, explaining what is normal and what is not. They have to teach morality and spiritual truth to offset what the students hear in school. They and their husbands need to teach basic civics like Constitutional government, American exceptionalism and responsible patriotism.
The War on Women is a cultural battle for the soul of America, and the liberals have declared it.
Having read and re-read Molly McGartland’s ideas on women and liberals, I’m more than a little disappointed Molly never knocked on my door, because I’m sure my strong, smart, independent, and amazing wife would have had more than a few things to say to set McGartland straight on liberals and women.
