Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Are you ready to party- or are you ready to rumble- this is after-all a war on women?

BettyJean Downing- Kling

Ladies are you ready to fight this war against us? Some of our opponents are other women! Perhaps instead of fighting with them we should talk. 

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is fighting for a job and her political life- but it is up to American’s women us to fight for our own lives- shall we fight for Debbie’s Job and future or our own?

Before you make up your mind- I urge you to read two books by amazing women who were there when the REAL “War against women” began! I was there and so were millions of women who were forced to sit down and shut up. But our time has come. Gigi Gaston along with Bettina Sofia Viviano, who started her own film production company in 1990 after serving as vice president of production for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment made a documentary called “ We will not be silenced” http://wewillnotbesilenced2008.com/index.htm

Michelle Thomas who said she received death threats as she gathered the 300 signed and notarized petitions required by Democratic National Convention rules to prompt a count of votes for Hillary Clinton on the first ballot, has just released an astonishing statement that I personally witnessed : “Obama thugs history revealed in Michele Thomas Bettina Viviano interview, Obama stole 1996 Alice Palmer election and 2008 DNC primaries caucuses another documentary. http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/obama-thugs-history-revealed-in-michele-thomas-bettina-viviano-interview-obama-stole-1996-alice-palmer-election-and-2008-dnc-primaries-caucuses/

Thousands of us are blogging and interviewing each other. Weeks ago I asked, What Republican war on Women? https://freemenow.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/what-republican-war-on-women/

 On Monday I interviewed Anita Finlay on her new book Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening, here it here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freemenow/2012/04/10/the-majority-united

Women are beginning to author books on the War on Women admitting it exists but bringing the evidence to prove it is not a Republican war waged this election cycle, but the pattern of behavior launched against women every election year by both the Democrats and the Republicans in an effort to use women  for their votes.

The following two books,  Admit The Horse – PG Abeles and  Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening – Anita Finlay speak specifically to the all out assault waged by the Democrats during the primary elections back in 2008 when a woman had the audacity to actually try to run for the highest office in the land. I have written blogs about this woman hating phenomenon and now women are writing books, finally unafraid to speak out.
I reviewed both books thus:

This review is from: Admit The Horse (Paperback)

In 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama waged an epic battle for the presidential nomination, but was it really a fair fight? The media told the mythical version of a dark horse coming from behind to win the race but Paulie Abeles opens our minds to an alternate narrative.
Perhaps those who wander down the yellow brick road may one day have the courage to pull the curtain back questioning who or what power was really behind the so-called magic of 2008 but those of us who worked the front lines know all to well it was plain old smoke and mirrors concealing the fraud and intimidation of the twenty-first century’s “War on Women”.
“Admit the Horse”, to those of us who lived it, is not a work of fiction at all- it is a factual account of the `war on women’ launched during the 2008 primary by the DNC, the left wing media and the pundits who rely on the political machines that run the land of the free and the home of the brave.

This review is from: Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening (Paperback)

 Up to now we’ve essentially heard from male authors writing from a male perspective. Dirty Words on Clean Skin, with courage and conviction, recounts the experiences that launched the REAL “War on Women.” Finally, after four years of silence, I am heartened that this woman author is coming forward to expose the truth as we actually endured it. This book is written by one who speaks for millions. Hat’s off to Anita Finlay and thank you for misbehaving! – Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Both are a must read.

It is not what America can do for women but what women can do for America~ Geraldine Ferraro

Barbara

Geraldine Ferraro never backing down– telling it like it is right to the very end. This is one lady that never played the old boys game- she played by her own rules, truthful and true to herself, beautiful inside and out. Way to go Gerry!

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position,” she told the Daily Breeze, a newspaper in Torrance, Calif.

 While critics, including Mr. Obama, pounced on her for being RACIST a defiant Ms. Ferraro defended her remarks, saying they were accurate and not racist. She has said that she herself benefited from being a woman because otherwise, she would not have been the vice presidential nominee in 1984.

While working for the Clinton campaign I had the pleasure of meeting her. At a Clinton Mother’s Day brunch in NY, I said to her that “everyone in this room owes you a debt of gratitude thank you”.

She said I know what you mean but here we are in 2008 and we are not discussing the qualifications of a woman but the ankles of a woman, she winks and smiles at Hillary, “and we are discussing pant suits rather than empty suits.”

Geraldine walked the walk refusing to attack Sarah Palin personally she is an example to us all. From her VP acceptance speech “It is not what American can do for women but what women can do for America”

Thank you Geraldine Ferraro and Rest in Peace.

Editorial Note* In appearing with Sarah Palin, Gerry was an example of The Majority United, Women supporting each other and lifting each other up rather than tearing each other apart because of ideology differences.

Why the left hates Sarah Palin

By BettyJean

It takes a great woman to humble herself as Robin did to accentuate Sarah’s accomplishments in such a magnanimous way.  Who does this for a woman you don’t even know, let alone for a women so many others go out of their way to hurt.  Ahhhh but there is a place in heaven for Robin of Berkeley. Below nothing compare to the full story – go read it and support her blog! This is a woman who supports women!

Robin of Berkeley
American Thinker: http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/01/why_the_left_hates_sarah_palin.html

People on the left hate Palin for one simple reason: because she is everything they are not.  She is their polar opposite because her life journey has diverged from the prescribed liberal path.

Palin was raised to be self-sufficient and independent since “idle hands are the devil’s tools.”  Little Sarah was up at the crack of dawn, hunting with her dad; in sharp contrast, liberal kids like me were still fast asleep. 

Palin didn’t have life handed to her on a silver platter, like so many in the ruling class.  Instead, Sarah balanced school, chores, jobs, and sports.  While liberal girls like me were glued to the boob tube, Sarah had no time for sloth.

Palin attended church with her family on Sundays. On Sunday morning, young liberals like me were recovering from Saturday night.

From her devout Christian upbringing, Sarah learned to be a good girl.  In contrast, I learned everything I needed to know about how to be a modern girl from the monthly Playboy Magazine, which was conspicuously displayed on our living room table.

Sarah dated and then married her high school sweetheart; I learned that my body was a commodity that I “owned.”  And I could use my body — and allow it to be used — to temporarily still the pangs of loneliness.

There’s a lyric from a Matt Maher song that always moves me to tears.  It’s when he cries out to God: “Where were You when sin stole my innocence?”  

When I hear these words, an unspeakable pain cuts through me.  I feel the ache of something stolen from me — something precious, never quite recovered.  And there are countless others out there, similarly robbed, though they have no idea what has gone missing.

And then, out of the blue, Sarah Palin, like a majestic bird in flight, swooped onto the scene of a depraved and deprived nation.  With her children and grandchild, her religion and her patriotism, Sarah is the antithesis of everything the progressives stand for.  Palin is not just pro-life, but she emanates life — and good, clean living.

Palinoia: a lesson on woman’s derangement

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

UPDATE 7:18 PM : You must read Robin of Berkley – American Thinker
http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/01/why_the_left_hates_sarah_palin.html

She puts this rant to shame and shows me that I no longer have the stomache for this. I’m burnt out. Done , finished, can’t handle this trying to help women anymore- Thank you Robin of Berkley!

I just read a really good piece that confirms my suspicions about why people treat Governor Sarah Palin the way they do. The reason, however, doesn’t matter because … there is never a good reason to treat another human being the way Ms. Palin is treated.

I am so disgusted by the failure in our society for having anyone available to step up and properly denounce this unseemly behavior.  I want to scream obscenities and shake people and slap faces and call POTUS ugly names for not admonishing the nation for this outrageous and un-American behavior.

 If our President is this lame, where in God’s good name is the Pope, to call on our church leaders? Surely someone somewhere? Why haven’t her friends the Grahams called out to that to heal itself of this ungodly behavior?

Faux Feminists can’t say they are for women while they help with the onslaught.  Conservatives can’t be doing the Lord’s will. Obviously it’s about jealousy from the women – women who can’t stand the fact that she has it all and looks like she does and actually enjoys her life too! There she is in her leather suits looking better than a body has a right too, while also being able to cook, clean, hunt, and have babies, and work outside the home as the Governor of a state and have a brain?

Afraid she sets the bar too high?

I didn’t think it could be done either – but it obviously can – and she obviously has a real life with real problems too, a Down syndrome baby, a daughter whose real life problems had to be aired and discussed by the whole world.  

 I also get the part men and women alike can’t stand a woman who stand up to the biggest and the best of them – even telling POTUS he hasn’t got the cajones.  Frankly, she has more balls than most Americans have.

IMHO, Palin’s problem is men are afraid their balls will shrink and women are afraid more will be expected of them and they may have to grow a pair.  The haters call her a moron.

Hypocritical Bastards. The duplicity of the Left is frightening – are they schizophrenic or dim-witted or just plain take the rest of us for fools?

Just exactly where are these  haters sitting right now, how much in their bank accounts, how many positions straight up the ladder have they held, and have they run for VP of the US lately?  Who’s the moron?

It’s one thing to not like the women’s politics—it’s quite another thing to be so damned jealous of another woman that you would … 

For three years I have worked my finger to the bone trying to unite women from both sides of the aisle and God love them many have come. I formed a 501(c)3, and several wonderful women run groups have also joined our efforts but I keep hitting the same roadblock each time I stand up for Sarah Palin. Some balk, some quit. Well I am not going to stop standing up for Sarah or for any other human being who is mistreated and since that doesn’t suit enough women– is going to take one step back for every step it takes forward. I guess this organization’s odds of success are only 50/50 at this time. Not my kind of investment- I have already vested a fortune and frankly – I have fallen in love with almost every women I have met and worked with but we were born women and my dream of uniting women is lost on an era of women no longer existing in  numbers large enough to pull it off.

We don’t need another girls club; we already have enough Liberal women’s groups and Conservative women’s groups. We have minority women’s groups, we have hate groups, love groups, uppity groups and every damned group you can think of including the one and only WOMEN’s group founded and created to unite all women regardless and in spite of all the above but it fails to gain ground precisely because too many women prefer to run in packs like wolves, and klatch in their gossipy little groups or form cliques devastating for odd girls out who are ostracized.

And so they shall remain as they please. “They” said it couldn’t be done – “They”   were right- it can’t.

Someone much more articulate and less aggravated with “They” than I, wrote a hell of a good article- Read it here:

Palinoia, the Destroyer
What’s behind the left’s deranged hatred?

Palin Death Threats: Odium from the Left surmounts the stench of rotting fish

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

The opprobrium brought upon America by the hateful behavior of the pigs who write and those who tolerate the following behavior under the guise of first amendment need hang your heads in shame. Each day that goes by makes me ashamed to be associated with the left, what a bunch of Pigs. And the women- well any women who would allow this to go on to one of her sisters should never again wonder why she is considered a second class citizen – it’s because she acts like one! Great work sisters- I am speechless… No I’m not I just remembered that famous quote: First They came for the Jews – Pastor Martin Niemoller—look it up

I am going to steal its cadence!

First they came for Hillary,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Liberal.

Then they came for Sarah,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Conservative.

Then they came for the Independents,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t an Independent.

Then they came for the rest of the women
and there was no one left to speak out for them.

Women in the “crosshairs”

By BettyJean Kling- H/T HillBuzz

Daily Kos has scrubbed the graphic on the left – the Dems believe Sarah Palin’s Crosshair graphic (also scrubbed) should be utilized by the MSM to their advantage! I think you ought to know about both. You see the left eats their own too!

After scrubbing their site of the target they put on Gabby’s back they launched an all out attack on the all the  newspapers  that did not go after the so-called Palin crosshairs map.

UPDATE:: at 8:38 pm today – about an hour and a half after I posted this – the Washington Post posted an article that noted the issue of Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” map, although the Post failed to note that Rep. Giffords was specifically “targeted” by Palin; nor did the Post mention Gifford’s own remarks about Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” map: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-naiman/is-palins-crosshairs-map_b_806277.html

Palin’s crosshairs map, Kos points out is a death threat as it put Gabby in the crosshairs and although it is not directed at the Congresswoman by name or district , it sits clearly over the entire state of Arizona.

The Daily Kos, however, has a picture of Gabby, a target, arrows pointing from her face to her district and clearly has their target directly on Gifford’s back as shown on their graphic entitled “Daily Kos put “bulls eye” on Gabrielle Gifford’s back in June of 2008″ 

I find the rush to exploit the tragedy of the Arizona shooting for political grandstanding sickening. This has bugged me since yesterday- the damned finger pointing by the media and that partisan hack sheriff is beyond disgusting – isn’t his job to find out the facts? The partisan politics from her colleagues is repulsive. How can anyone use a horrific tragedy like this to promote their own agenda? Never mind – I know the answer! Kos – I am not letting you get away with this- and a hat tip to Hillbuzz!

Clearly this was not a political driven act, let’s face it this psycho is just plain nuts and could care less what party the victim belongs too. He does not seem to have a party affiliation.  According to his friends, this guy is , if anything, a left winger  and “The Communist Manifesto” and Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” were among the favorite reading materials of Jared Lee Loughner. His writings are schizophrenic at best, he is sick.

Congresswoman Giffords used to be a Republican, now a blue Dog Dem and this kid has problems that have nothing whatsoever to do with either party and probably nothing to do with her being Jewish either. Nothing to do with the other victims including nine year old princess Christina Green, or the 3 senior citizens who the media is absolutely ignoring, or Gabe Zimmerman who was about to be married or her friend the Federal Judge on his way home from Sunday mass. See the victims names at the end of this post and say a prayer for all the families not just the three famous families.

A friend of mine, Anna Belle over at peacocks and lilies http://peacocksandlilies.com/2011/01/09/first-thoughts-on-meet-the-press-and-political-violence-in-america/ has a take on this that I would like to share:

I appreciate the Congresspersons on Meet the Press today, and their unanimous opinion that it is vitriol on both sides that contributes to political violence in our culture.

I know a lot of my friends are leftists (I myself am non-partisan, with liberal inclinations) and they like to think this is all about the right. But now they must face the fact that Democrats and progressives spent two years alienating massive groups of people–starting with fellow Democrats–by insisting they were racists without any evidence. And the right will have to face that they too have alienated massive groups of people with rhetoric about socialism, killing government, etc, again without any evidence. Both of these groups contributed to the culture that created their bastard child, Jared Lee Loughner.

Both sides also need to deal with their internalized hatred of women, which is the main reason this happened. It’s not like this guy went after John McCain, Rep. Grijalva, the mayor of Tucson, or any of the other male politicians that Loughner could have targeted. He targeted her because as a culture we accept targeting women for violence, and we blame them for shit they can’t possibly be responsible for. We also hate them far more than we hate men for the very same actions, such as having different beliefs or having the gall to hold public office.

Boy did she ever nail that one! We have POTUS telling people to destroy their enemies meaning all the Republicans i.e. half of the electorate, yet not a soul is bringing that up. Instead, because the victim happens to be a Democrat, the left is going after Palin – a woman. For example, from the Daily Beast:

Giffords was one of 20 Democrats on the target list that Sarah Palin posted before the election, which featured the crosshairs of a gun site over each member’s district.

The Sunday shows are rife with the same kind of Rhetoric for example:

I also saw media pieces trying to link the Tea Party to this without a shred of evidence. This is what turns citizens against citizens unneccessarily

I can’t help but wonder why not one of the myriad of media hounds or Sunday shows brought up this piece written directly against this Congresswoman from the Daily Kos. After the shooting, Daily Kos removed that post from the site but if the right could find it and I could find it the media could have found it. When will the media help the people get a straight story so We the People stop fighting on another! That is where the real problem lies!  God forbid the media also and in addition tells the people that Kos also had a target on this woman for voting according to her conscience!

“The first vote she cast in this new Congress as one of some 20 Democrats opposing Nancy Pelosi as minority leader drew a Daily Kos screed titled “My Congresswoman voted against Pelosi, now she’s dead to me.”  Daily Kos has a long history of scrubbing things like this, so those are the screen grabs above for a hit piece Kos ran on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords on Thursday January 6th, 2010.

It is shameful that we have a President who came on to the scene claiming to unite Americans and instead has incited racial tension setting black/white relations back 50 years in my mind, and who has told his  followers- to fight with their neighbors but the left has not problems with his words and ever since – this country has been fighting and in each others faces.

“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

Our esteemed president WARNED his audience that if the republicans took control of congress after the election this November, then the result would be “HAND-TO-HAND” combat on capitol hill.  He has said:

If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’

In June of 2008

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Truth be told- everyone needs to calm down and stop using these tragedies for their own benefit, POTUS needs to grow up and stop dividing the country just because  it is the right thing to do , politics has gotten so damned nasty the best thing to happen is We the People, tea party , coffee party Independent Party. We need to clean out the barn, send them all home and start all over again- take back our country and get back to loving America instead of hating the other party!

That Tucson Sherriff needs to be fired as I write this – he is still a left wing nut case who cannot do his job because he is tilted too far left! He talks of vitriol by using left wing vitriol.

 When will anyone understand you cannot be on one side or the other and expect peace. Unity  brings peace not divisivness. We don’t have to agree on all issues but this state of the union is deadly and I don’t mean in the sense of the Arizona Shooting! We are dying as The United States– a more perfect union!

And while we are at it- how about we have the media spend a little more time talking about all the victims here:

Christina Taylor Green, 9
Dorothy Morris, 76
U.S. District Judge John M. Roll, 63
Phyllis Schneck, 79
Dorwan Stoddard, 76
Gabe Zimmerman, 30

How Daily Beast’s Michelle Goldberg Flunks Journalism

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

OK – I am ready to have it out again – can we have an honest discussion about this. I tend to think the truth lies somewhere in the middle between what Sarah wrote in Palin’s new book,
America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag,
and Michelle Goldberg’s assessment of How Palin Flunks Feminism

The governor-turned-reality-TV-star’s new book dives into feminist history—distorting and misunderstanding it every step of the way, says The Daily Beast’s Michelle Goldberg.

First – someone better clue Goldberg in on Wikipedia- stuff there is not written in stone Michelle—even Sarah can go in and change history on Wikipedia! Talk about being worried about distortions – this gal is relying on Wikipedia for Pete’s sake for her history! YIKES!

“As so often with Palin, it’s hard to tell whether ignorance or dishonesty is at work. Perhaps neither she nor her ghostwriter had time to read up on women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, presented here as a pious Christian conservative. But couldn’t one of them at least have perused her Wikipedia entry?”

Then she leads you to believe that Palin is lying and distorting Susan B. Anthony’s abortion position. It reads thus:

“America By Heart packs a lot of deceit into a small package. Indeed, it’s an object

lesson in the power of right wing propaganda to create imaginary histories.”

Followed by this:

“Palin also tries to claim Susan B. Anthony for her side. The idea that Anthony was anti-abortion is a cherished one on the right; one anti-abortion political action committee calls itself the “Susan B. Anthony List.” “Susan B. Anthony saw the fight for the rights of the unborn as part of the broader fight for women’s rights,” writes Palin.”

And then lays the conclusion that Palin is distorting the facts on others who wrote those conclusions entirely having nothing to do with Palin’s book.

“Again, not really. As Ann Gordon, the editor of Anthony’s papers, and Lynn Sherr, one of her biographers, wrote earlier this year, “We have read every single word that this very voluble—and endlessly political—woman left behind. Our conclusion: Anthony spent no time on the politics of abortion. It was of no interest to her, despite living in a society (and a family) where women aborted unwanted pregnancies. “

Read it at The Daily Beast:

http://e.thedailybeast.com/a/tBM8R$eB7SwhTB8V8yUCz-wH$lK/dail2

 

Clearly Ms. Goldberg flunks journalism but is queen of distortion and as for being a feminist- she doesn’t even know what the word means. Clearly she is not a woman’s woman – she is a political lemming!

As for the term Feminist and the vote:


The question was – Is Sarah Palin a Feminist? The article presented parts of her book to have you believe she is not and then asks you to vote. I voted yes but the results showed most readers either fell for the ruse or are lemmings!

One has to know the term Feminist and its meaning- obviously these voters know neither to have voted no in such large numbers.  Let me set the record straight.

 A Feminist plain and simple is the belief that females are equal to men! 

To suggest that Sarah Palin is not a feminist meaning she does not think she is equal to any man is a laugh a minute.  No doubt in my mind she thinks she and many of us are equal – she probably also thinks many other women are idiot lemmings and she would be right about that too! Damned fools would believe anything you read!

Finally, I suppose most voters in this poll were Democrats, and Liberals but they certainly were not feminists who stand up for other women – regardless of the political affiliation, religious beliefs or ability to unite. Most of Sarah’s book readers will be Conservatives and Republicans and they certainly were not feminists who stand up for other women – regardless of the political affiliation, religious beliefs or ability to unite. Both conservatives and Democrats have an awful lot to learn and until they do – feminists will never achieve equality- we are holding ourselves back by remaining in two separate camps fighting over abortion. You will fight to the death and never win!


How Palin Flunks Feminism packs a lot of deceit into an even smaller package. Indeed, it’s an object

lesson in the power of left wing propaganda to keep women divided over abortion.
