Okay, seriously I’m fuming.
Over the past month, the Obama campaign has said some incredibly trite things about women. I’m not Sandra Fluke. And the notion that I’m a victim in some invisible war offends me. But Stephanie Cutter makes my blood boil. On NPR, Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said that women are
“not really concerned about what’s happened over the last four years. They really want to know what’s going to happen in the next four years.”
All I can say to that is that Stephanie Cutter must be hanging around some really stupid women. No one I know would think that thought, let alone verbalize it.
Women are not pawns. We are not victims. We are not shell votes for whomever the left believes to be the standard bearer of womanhood.
Women are individuals. Many of us find Sandra Fluke’s version of victimhood offensive and embarassing. We’re done being patronized. We don’t like other women thinking for us any more than we like men thinking for us. We may be reluctant warriors, but many of us are ready to take our gloves off. Our vote is our weapon and we intend to make some noise this November.
A woman’s existence doesn’t begin with abortion and end with birth control. You want to talk about women’s issues? The lack of jobs is a women’s issue. Taxes is a women’s issue. The economy is a women’s issue. National security is a women’s issue. Jihadist monsters toting a dead American ambassador through the streets of Benghazi is a women’s issue, and we’re not happy about Barack Obama’s handling of any of them.
We at Women Warriors PAC have been working hard this week to create ads that will reframe the debate. The last four years DO matter. We will hold Barack Obama accountable for his record. We will encourage women to do it with their vote.
“I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.” ~Susan B. Anthony
“We want to be something more than the appendages of Society.” Lucy Stone
Ms. Anthony and Ms. Stone are presently rolling over in their graves. After winning the right to vote and the right to fight, after climbing to the top of corporate ladders, after rising to the highest tiers of military and government leadership, has American womanhood really been reduced to whining about birth control on national television? Are women just an “appendage” or arm of the Democrat party, or any politcal party?
I don’t think so.
Mothers, daughters and sisters – our fight is for America. Our nation is at the brink. Dependence is the opposite of freedom. Lady Liberty needs us to circle the wagons and keep America strong, so that we can extend the blessings of freedom to oppressed women of other nations and future generations.
