liberalism and feminism

Never the twain shall meet.

Robin of Berkeley, a reformed liberal, has written one of the best pieces I've ever read on why liberals hate women.
Certain know the type.

Go read.

It's been years and years since "feminism" meant anything other than "political agitation for the Democratic Party."

See Clinton, William Jefferson.

Liberal love long as they all toe the line. The moment you step out of line the claws come out.

If Libs ferociously attack you it just means they're threatened by you. They revel in being perpetual victims and the personal attacks are basic projection.

I like Robin of Berkeley okay, but she really seems to be polar- either ALL LIBERAL or TOTAL CONSERVATIVE.

I agree with her point about misogyny and the left, but really can't sit there with a straight face and say the right doesn't have its own version. It's an equal-opportunity thing, politics just determine which excuses are made by the offenders.

Thanks for that link. LOVED the article. I think Robin made her case best by pointing out what happened to Hillary Clinton when she refused to tack as far left as the socialist we now have in the Oval Office - they attacked her like rabid dobermans on a pork chop. As much as I would have despised seeing her in the WH, now I am starting to think she was definitely the lesser of two evils. On the other hand? One and done, baby. The midterm elections are going to be the beginning of the end, or so I hope.

I enjoy your blog...

One of the comments is one of the most prophetic I have seen in a while:

"Republicans are for the big rich guys and Democrats are for the poor and needy...then logically to expand the different parties bases, Republicans would want more people to be rich and Democrats would want more people to be poor."

Kinda says it all about what's going on lately.

Have a look at for an awful lot of examples of the vitriol spewed in her direction.

Even given that there are many thing I admire about America, I have been totally puzzled by the reaction(s) to Sarah Palin. Of course, there have been similar attacks in the Great White North ... but I kinda expected that puerile behaviour from Canucks.

The viciousness of the attacks on eminent women ... whether in business, politics or entertainment ... will only continue. It's sad and depressing because of what it says about both men and women from the ranks of liberals.

I don't agree with everything Sarah Palin says ... or believes in ... but I can only think she must be really bothering some people ... if that's their reaction to her.
