Ann Romney’s disgusting appeal to the female vote
In her speech at the convention, Ann Romney said that women “care” more than men, that society treats women unfairly and forces them to work harder than men, and that “single … mothers hold this country together.”
Mrs. Romney, along with the GOP which approved her speech, has inadvertently demonstrated once again why women should not have the vote and should not have prominent positions in politics. Because once women have the vote, they become a separate constituency with interests separate from those of men. This inevitably results (1) in female emotionalism and female resentment becoming central in politics; (2) in everyone bowing down at the altar of the mistreated, overworked “moms” of America, who are thus turned into a new type of oppressed ubermensch; and (3) in women as a group demanding substantive equality with men as a group. In short, sexual socialism.
And, as with all socialist egalitarian schemes, some equal humans are more equal than others. Thus women, according to Ann Romney, work harder than men, care more about the good of society than men, and represent the “best of America,” which men do not. Thus women, under Obamacare, get free contraceptive pills and services, with zero co-pay, as an absolute “right”—a right granted to no other “health care” need.
Republicans say they believe in a free society. But the truth is that women’s political equality is incompatible with a free society, because women’s political equality moves society irresistibly in the direction of socialism.
Mrs. Romney said in her speech:
Sometimes I think that late at night, if we were all silent for just a few moments and listened carefully, we could hear a great collective sigh from the moms and dads across America who made it through another day, and know that they’ll make it through another one tomorrow. But in that end of the day moment, they just aren’t sure how.
I never expect anything good from the GOP, and I am never disappointed. Even McDonald’s food is better than the hogwash pumped out of the GOP bilges.LA replies:
That is true. McDonald’s food is sometimes tasty and satisfying (I hope Laura Wood is not too shocked that I said that). Can the same ever be said of the GOP?A reader writes:
When Ann Romney said the subject of her speech was “love,” I burst out laughing. In the film, Thank You For Smoking (from the novel by Christopher Buckley), a young boy learns to become the same, shallow, glib conscienceless creep as his father, a tobacco lobbyist.James N. writes:
Both Rick Santorum and Ann Romney praised “single moms” in their speeches, and Scott Walker did so by implication with his anecdote about a “mom” who could feed her children after his reforms in Wisconsin got her a job.LA replies:
In that connection, see the other entry today, “Republicans think they want to win, but they really want to lose; they think they want to live, but they really want to die.”
