There is something about Republican women in office that sends Democrats into fits of anger. The way the left attacked (and still attacks) Sarah Palin should prove the truth of that to any fair minded individual.
It’s not just their political ideas that come under fire, but everything about them – even innocent children. Suddenly it’s OK to use every vile word about them.
In Memphis we had Charlotte Bergmann verbally assaulted by radio host Thaddeus Matthews. Michele Bachmann was cruelly attacked during the primary. Now the current target is Rebecca Kleefisch. She’s the Lt. Gov. of Wisconsin. Breitbart.com has been following this story:
This is what we see time and again at the hands of the same Left that manufactured a month’s long non-troversy over a word Rush Limbaugh spoke. While, on one hand, the left and their media allies feign outrage over Limbaugh, on the other hand, they either willfully ignore or launch vile, sexist attacks against conservative women that go well beyond anything that can in any way be called satire or humor.
Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is a wife, mother, and a cancer survivor. She’s currently being targeted for recall and by some of the ugliest personal attacks you’ll hear — at least until the left launches the next one.
John “Sly” Sylvester, a left-wing radio host who operates out of Madison, WI, at radio station WTDY, accuses Kleefisch of performing sexual acts on numerous men, mocks her cancer, and attacks her children.
Here are the lowlights:
“I’m Rebecca Kleefisch. I perform fellatio on all the talk show hosts in Milwaukee. … I got colon cancer and I ran around the state [garbled] people.”
“I had heard at one point that Rebecca Kleefisch pulled a train (having sex with several men one after another) but that must’ve been a different story I was reading about.”
“Let me tell you something about these Barbies the Republicans trot out the Rebecca Kleefisch’s…”
“I hope your husband is sleeping with your best friend.”
Unbelievably, it gets worse. Here’s the mocking of the Lt. Governor’s children:
“I love it that your kids have actually have to hear about what evil things you’re doing. I hope they have to hear it every day. And I hope they come home right to you. And just because you’re good looking — and she is — and just ‘cuz you’re cutes and I’m sure you got a precocious little daughter you put in little Jon Benet contests, and I’m sure you have a little jock son, and they come home and say ‘Mommy, they’re saying you’re a witch.’ You are a witch!”
The attack on the Kleefisch’s children is quite intentional. We’ve seen the media do the same to Sarah Palin. The idea is to gut-punch the target, to attempt to make the price of staying in the public arena awful and toxic. The left’s hope, obviously, is that the target will shrivel up and go away. Well, this evil tactic didn’t work on Palin and I doubt it will on Kleefisch.
But where is the media on this?
AWOL, naturally, because Rebecca Kleefisch is an apostate — a self-made Republican woman who became the Lt. Governor of a swing state Barack Obama desperately needs to fall his way if he’s to have four more years to be more, uhm, flexible.
Don’t waste too much time waiting for the media to be outraged. They love it.
The left feels so threatened by Republican women. Wonder why that is? Somehow Democrats figure women are their property and woe to any who don’t realize it. Women are beginning to see it, so expect more attacks.
