The U.S. was just downgraded from a “Full” to “Flawed Democracy.”

You can thank President Porn-Star Shagger, the one who praised a murderous North Korean dictator and insulted our closest ally, Canada.

The present GOP isn't just anti-women, they actually hate women...

and one of their most popular spokespersons, a sort of woman, never loses an opportunity to tell the American people how much she and the GOP despise and think women are not worthy of the vote:

Coulter and her GOP anti-women hatred: 

 "I think [women] should be armed but should not vote … women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend it … it's always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care. 

 It would be a much better country if women did not vote. 

That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 — except Goldwater in '64 — the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted. 

 If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. 

And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women."

So when you hear the know-nothings protest that it's unfair when liberals say conservatives are anti-women, show this to them, and tell them that one of their most admired LOUD MOUTHS thinks women are not worthy to vote. 

Coulter is either a man in drag or the most self-hating woman of all the female GOP talking empty-heads .  Self-hatred is a hallmark of these wackos, and Coulter is the worst of the howlers who hoot like moonsick monkeys for a fat paycheck from FAUX NOOZ.

Think about what the Republican Party thinks about you, a woman, when you go into that voting booth.

Infidel753 has a message about voting tomorrow.

I question Coulter's sincerity. I think she's found a marketable schtick as a purveyor of outrageous remarks, and is simply unethical enough to go with it. The disturbing part is that there's enough of a market among conservatives for such stuff to keep her prominent.

A portion of the right wing in this country is now so "out there" that they make the Iranian theocracy (which allows women to vote, encourages birth control, and teaches evolution in the schools) look liberal by comparison.

The Kevin Williamson quote is even more damning since he's not just a noisy attention addict like Coulter but a writer for one of the most "respectable" conservative publications in the country. As such, the right wing can't disown his views as fringe.

It's critical that we keep this element out of power as much as possible. Unfortunately too many people aren't paying attention.

I'll be voting for Charlie Baker for governor of MA.

And hoping the U.S. Senate does notchange hands.

The Tea Party Socon Evangelical wing of the republican party is as facist in nature as old Senator Josseph McCarthy was.

Does anyone focus on the center moderate position any more?

Dave Miller said...

Shaw... I can't agree. The GOP does not hate women. They have a different viewpoint on the role of women in society. While we may not agree with them, apart from Coulter, they come to their views from a principled viewpoint.

In the case of WIlliamson, at least he is standing on the courage of his convictions, something few in the GOP world will do.

If you believe abortion is murder, then of course everyone involved in an abortion should face charges. The mothers, doctors, nurses, everyone.

It is the only consistent viewpoint.

But to espouse this viewpoint would in fact lay bare the extremism of their views on this subject and show they really have not thought through their views to a logical conclusion.

Truly, if you believe abortion is murder, their can be no other conclusion from the mandatory sentence, lock 'em up, capital punishment crowd.

The larger problem is one we have discussed many times. GOP leaders, bloggers and writers have for years stated that silence in the face of extreme ideas is acquiescence.

That said, if they refuse to be openly critical of people like Coulter and Williamson, then I do believe it fair to assume the party writ large, agrees with those voices.

Ok and others, if you come across a GOP partisan who will even attempt to describe what is an extreme view of todays GOP, let me know.

It is a question they have studiously avoided because the answer, in may cases, will be them!

Ducky's here said...

Well Shaw, I'm afraid that it's going to be a very rough two years.

I'd like to think the upside is that the right will realize their party has no rational platform and we take a swing back towards sanity but the noise machine is going to be operating at very high volume.

Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi

Dave Miller said...

Duck... yes, it is going to be a rough 2 years...

Take this statement as evidence... "I am not interested in contrived scandals and I hope Senate Republicans aren’t either. But we need answers on things like the IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious and lots of other things."

How can you even square that statement with logic? The GOP partisans want answers that agree with their preconceived ideas. If the facts disagree with their narrative, then the facts must be wrong, contrived, or manipulated.

One bright note, I've seen conservatives take the bait and salivate about control of the Senate. Since they will not have a filibuster proof majority, and since they dismissed that as a reason for Dem action, it will be a hoot to see how they explain their inability to move legislation. Their words of the last 6 years will be coming back to haunt them.

Infidel753 said...

Dave Miller: The GOP does not hate women. They have a different viewpoint on the role of women in society.

I don't see the contradiction. They have a view of the role of women in society which is consistent and could be described as principled, and it's based on hatred, in the sense of believing that women should be punished for sexuality (the claim that their anti-abortion stance is based or a genuine belief that an early-stage embryo is morally equivalent to a person is absurd -- just look how little they care for real children, post birth). In traditional, patriarchal societies, control of sexuality has always been both a motive and a method for subjugating women.

One could just as well say the KKK has a different view of the role of blacks in society. It's semantically accurate but doesn't contradict the fact that that viewpoint is based on a desire to subjugate and, yes, on hatred.

More quotes from GOP pundits:

Jonah Goldberg: Young Voters Are Too 'Frickin' Stupid'
"In 2012, National Review editor-at-large Jonah Goldberg said young people are "too frickin' stupid" to vote.

Here's more anti-women rhetoric from the right's favorite cable news station:

"Kimberly Guilfoyle: Doesn't Want Young Women Voting, Or On Juries
Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle said last month that young women shouldn't vote because they "don't get it."

And more disrespect toward young people:

Joel Gelernter: 'Let's Suppress Them'
"By and large, 18-year-olds know nothing and shouldn't be voting. Let’s suppress them," wrote Josh Gelernter, a scribe at the National Review and The Weekly Standard.

In October, a group of Fox News hosts agreed that having young voters show up at the polls isn't a good idea.

"Do we want [young people] to vote if they don't know the issues?" Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner asked her co-hosts.

"No!" Lisa Kennedy Montgomery answered. "You absolutely don't!"

What prompted this discussion? A "liberal Hollywood" video encouraging young people to vote.

Question for the folks who think so little of our young people: How many "adults" in our voting population know, in depth, any of the issues they vote on, or, in depth, any of the candidates?

The people who are quoted above think young women and young people in general are too stupid to have the right to vote.

My opinion of them? I'd wonder about the intelligence of people who talk about women and young people that way.

Ducky's here said...

Yes Dave, I read that blog over my breakfast coffee and saw that quote.

Why Herman Cain is being cited at this point is beyond me. Sarah Palin must have been unavailable.

I admire your optimism but I'm not so sure Dems will necessarily block legislation. They don't have that history.

Republicans are in a good position. Their only platform is to hate on Obama and they can keep that up. Folks haven't tired of it for six years and I don't imagine it is going to change.

Dave Miller said...

Ok... I just think hate is such a strong word. For me, it's also a heart word.

I choose not to equate wrong, stupid, backward thinking, and in some cases, ignorant, with hate.

For me, it typically shuts the doors to future conversations that can lead to change.

Fair enough. Or as Nietzsche might have put it if he had met Coulter, "Remember that when you sink into the hatred, the hatred also sinks into you."

The Gee-Ooh-Pee caters to only three constituencies (think of them as the three “Ps”): Wealthy donors (power), the Evangelical base (passion), and white males (privilege). There is no room within this core for the interests of women, the middle class, the working class, or minorities. The three “Ps” equals one “un-P” (unprincipled).

What conversations? I don't recall ever having a conversation with those people. What I recall is non-stop verbal abuse - partisan hate speech such as 'libtard' and 'libturd' among other epithets illustrated with vile and offensive pornography. You call that a conversation!!!!

NO ONE SHOULD BE FORCED TO PUT UP WITH VERBAL ABUSE! I prefer keeping offensive and unhealthy people out of my life; and I am grateful that they no longer comment here.

okjimm said...

oh, it would be so wonderful if Coulter would follow her own shadow and....not vote.

I am sooooooo tired of idiots, especially those that seem to enjoy debasing women.

In Wisco,normally a sound, sensible state, we have a candidate for Congress, Glenn Grothman, who can rival Coulter for dumb-shit statements.


In 2012, Grothman introduced a bill that would have required state agencies to list single parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse. He later claimed that single mothers scheme to have children out of wedlock and are “trained” to say that their pregnancies are unintended. He wrote in a newsletter the same year that “the Left and the social welfare establishment want children born out of wedlock because they are far more likely to be dependent on the government.” - See more at:

When Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker repealed the states equal pay law, Grothman explained pay disparties by saying, “You could argue that money is more important for men. I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious. To attribute everything to a so-called bias in the workplace is just not true.” - See more at: more..

In 2010, Grothman, who believes that homosexuality is a choice, proposed banning Wisconsin public school teachers from mentioning homosexuality in sex education classes because some teachers had an "agenda" to turn kids gay.

....I used to wonder why I drink....

Dave: "I choose not to equate wrong, stupid, backward thinking, and in some cases, ignorant, with hate."

I commend you for your optimism and open heart.

But I've read too many vile statements about President Obama that fall into the category of hate, including "dirty son of a bitch," "evil America-hater," and "filthy vermin." All of those epithets can be read, speaking against liberals and Mr. Obama, on a daily basis on the conservative blogs I no longer bother with. Sometimes one has to acknowledge that hatred exists in this world, because for me, ignoring it allows it to fester.

Dave: "The GOP partisans want answers that agree with their preconceived ideas."

The fact that their trumped-up "scandals" did not turn out to be so will not stop the GOP from carrying their vendettas to their logical conclusions: convening more investigating committees until they completely disrupt the business of this country in order to continue to hound this president into his last two years in office.

Believe me, we haven't seen the worst of it. Wait till they capture the Senate, and then the you know what will hit the fan.

Maybe. I wouldn't write the president off just yet. He may have a trick or two up his sleeve.

Ducky's here said...

I have to say Shaw that I didn't feel much enthusiasm voting this year. I'm usually optimistic but this year I felt that the real opposition of just massive ignorance.

Media is the key to it all and I've never felt the force of the idiot wind so strong as it has been these last few months.
Maybe I'm wrong but we'll have to be content with some small victories, I fear.

Rational Nation USA said...

"... a trick or two up his sleeve."

Thinking about what that implies at this very moment.


Ducky's here said...

What a miserable night.

The only consolation, Shaw, seems to be that Scott Brown has seen his political career ended.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Yeah, that was one good thing that came out of last night, not much else.

But remember the long game, Ducky. We knew that with the GOP's voter suppression tactics, the SCOTUS's dark money, and voter apathy that allows the opposition party to gain, this will NOT be a lasting victory dance. This country is trending toward minorities, and the GOP doesn't like that demographic, and minorities don't like the GOP.

Let 'em have their little fun today, but we'll see what happens in two years when the whole country votes.

We've got ourselves another LIBERAL Republican governor in Mass. who faces a Democratic legislature. We did fairly well under Liberal Romney. Baker seems to be in that tradition.

Welcome to the United States of Koch.

Ducky's here said...

Well, RN, Baker is in.

Frankly, it doesn't really trouble me. He seems like the kind of Rebublican rational people can support and the general tone of the state should keep him on a reasonable course.

New England pretty much voted to form except Maine. LePage? I don't get it.
