It’s time to stop pretending. Read the cards on the table. A woman’s party, a third force capable of representing the interests of all women by throwing it’s weight behind a common goal, is a pipe dream. At least for now. The results of Maine’s Question1, the anti-gay marriage initiative, has nailed the coffin shut on that slender hope.
Behold-the Eagle Forum. Continue to disregard them at your peril. Eagle Forum hate-a-rama is no surprise. Concerned Maine Families is no surprise. How about Focus on the Family, the Christian Coalition? The usual suspects. That Linda Bean Folkers, heiress to the L.L. Bean fortune, was a contributor was a (mini) shock since it’s so about mountains and streams and such(the company distances itself from her positions). What other head slappers are there?
Reprise proposition gay H8te in California.
Reprise the demolition of the Equal Rights Amendment.
Once again, like a clockwork money machine, the Phyllis Schlafly brigade of right wing throwbacks, bigots and belligerents marched in and snatched the ice cream cone right out of the gay baby’s hand, leaving a shit storm of rage in their wake. They’re pretty happy right now. And this time the voters were white. So don’t blame just the Black bigots for hating on gays. Phyllis could whack the handful of black voters with a flyswatter.
The failure of the “fierce” gay advocate currently occupying the White House, to take a stand, was surely part of the mix. He handed the treasury to those fu&%#@s with his asinine “faith based initiative”. Somebody wants to move both parties rightward. So we’re on our own.
This time there is no one to blame but the neo-conservative and fundamentalist religious movement; a stealthy coalition energized by women against women, who represent the interests of anti-feminist men. They are not our friends. Obama, hate him or loathe him, but the enemy of my enemy is for damn sure not my friend.
SO HEY, NEO-FEMINISTS OF THE NO-PARTY PARTY! YOU WANT WOMEN TO VOTE FOR WHOM?
JUST CLOSE MY EYES AND VOTE FEMALE, you say! Vote the nutbags.Vote the haters?
Mark the old x next to Bachmann or Palin. Riiight. It will only hurt after the morphine wears off. But wait, do they even believe in morphine?
