Over the past couple of weeks with the Rush Limbaugh controversy, America’s elite feminists again have shown their true colors by demanding that he be taken off of the air. Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, and Robin Morgan wrote an opinion piece for CNN asserting that Limbaugh is not promoting the public interest, and the FCC should remove him from the radio.
These so-called champions of women even went so far as to say, “This is not political.” Yeah, right. So, I want to make emphatically clear that these supposed defenders of women do not represent me, a conservative woman.
Historically, feminism had a place in America. There was a time when women couldn’t vote or own land, there was a time when women were strongly discriminated against in the workplace. Thanks to some strong, early feminists, women today do not face these issues.
However, the modern feminism movement has taken these noble ideals and twisted them into a liberal, far-Left crusade that ostracizes those women who do not agree with them politically. Women who believe in conservative principles, who oppose abortion, and who stand up for families are ignored or even scorned by feminists. When Sarah Palin is ridiculed in the most sexist fashion, they look the other way. When liberal men demean, insult, and otherwise verbally abuse women with their public commentary, feminists are silent. However, when a conservative commentator calls a liberal woman a name, they express public outrage. Then they have the audacity to say it isn’t political.
Going to the website for NOW (the National Organization for Women), the top story accuses the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops of “playing a major role in the right-wing war on women.” Further down on the page, it calls for Clear Channel to drop Rush Limbaugh. There is nothing about marriage or family or faith, values that many women hold dear. The so-called important issues avowed by NOW are nothing more than politically-charged, hate-filled, hypocritical demands that do nothing to promote women, only to advance ultra-liberal causes.
Conservative women should be disgusted with this modern movement and should speak out against it. I, for one, want nothing to do with it.
