What Obama Really Wants For Women

June 13, 2009
Love is forever

Love is forever

What Obama wants from American feminists is peace and quiet, a pre-Betty Friedan yesteryear , the 1950’s and early 60’s, when women were decorous and undemanding.  He yearns for the days when men called  women “girls”  and “girls”shopped at colleges for husbands ; a return to the days of hoop skirts, heterosexual puppy love and women’s work, Jackie O and Jack.  No troubles.  No choices.jack and jackie

For Obama’s corporate sponsors The 2008 presidential election was the first battle for post-feminist America, a return to conformity, domestic contentment and lowered female expectations.  Women’s existential claims for human rights must be swept away in the new, pragmatic geopolitical, globalized order.  In third world countries, invisible women will provide cheap goods from field and factory.  In the first world, women buy those cheap goods and feel contentment.

Women must adjust downwards, to the lower tiers of the labor market and do what suits them best, behaving as caretakers and consumers.  This reassessment closely resembles the downshift of women’s rights and new-found freedoms after WWII, when Rosie the Riveter was required to return to the hearth and the secretarial pool to make way for returning veterans.  Women went home and bought things that men produced: refrigerators, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, cribs, and put their ambitions on the backs of their men.

In many  ways, the corporate answer for women’s aspirations dovetail neatly with the new  national party agendas, both Democratic and Republican. For the Democrats, it spells an end to fractious individualism, civil rights, Mr. Moms, and bleeding hearts, a pious embrace of  traditional roles to quiet the body politic and gain new members on the right who oppose the causes of feminism and sexual freedom. The Republicans have already claimed that territory and intend to defend it, taking neither offense nor notice of the women’s(oppression) issues.

The  2 minute “women’s issue” portion of Obama’s Cairo speech was a call to inaction.  Let us, he implied to women listening in the West, agree that life for women is imperfect everywhere but the differences among us, these perceived injustices against women are merely minor failures of understanding and acceptance, as simple as a head scarf.  Yes, Western women, no great representatives of equality themselves, must adapt to foreign views of moral virtue, unabashed inequality and oppression because globalized societies require standardization and uniformity, conformity and obedience. We must find common ground, he repeats, with those we oppose, on reproductive choices,  male dominance, women’s inferior status.  He will cobble us together, like it or not. If Westerners oppose the oppressive symbolism of the hijab, Obama won’t stand for it.  He warns

“The U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.”  Only women must make accommodation with subservience.  See, that prick says,even Hillary, the real president, gets it. Obama Hillary Cairo

On the other hand men must make a concession in return: women must be allowed to get some education.  But this will not be all bad.  Men will find that the remuneration of women’s work will benefit them with a more prosperous society without putting their female chattel beyond their control.  With just a few no-cost public behavioral adjustments toward their women to placate the West and men in the Middle East may be welcomed into the family of nations without interference, just as Saudi Arabia and Egypt are accepted. Obama called for

expanded literacy for girls, and to help young women pursue employment through micro-financing that helps people live their dreams.

Does he mean like this?

Shakti rural women’s empowerment is win-win partnership for women, consumers and Indian company

Shakti (“strength”) is a women’s empowerment initiative begun in 2001 by an Indian consumer products corporation, Hindustan Lever, which is creating micro-enterprise opportunities for rural women and thereby improving their livelihoods and status and improving the standard of living in rural communities as well as benefiting the company. The program targets small villages with population of less than 2000 people.

Shakti provides critically needed additional income to poor rural women and their families, by working with self-help groups to equip and train women to become an extended arm of the company’s operation. Started in 2001, Shakti now operates in about 80,000 villages in 15 states, covering about 15 million rural people, and has the support of state governments and a number of NGOs. HLL hopes that by 2010, there will be 1,000,000 Shakti entrepreneurs covering 5,000,000 villages, and touching the lives of 600 million rural people.

And they don’t have to leave the hearth to do it.  Obama said

I do not believe that women must make the same choices as men in order to be equal, and I respect those women who choose to live their lives in traditional roles.

And suppose they choose NOT to live “traditional” lives?  Is there an option?


Hillary v. Karl Rove’s Hit Squad

June 8, 2009

Oh Hillary. You were really up against it. Big time.  Beginning with your term as First Lady in the 1990’s the Rovians had it in for you.

The  Obama camp and its surrogates were so hideous in their attacks on Hillary they were difficult to forget. Nothing was too low to throw at the best qualified candidate in the presidential race. Nothing was too awful to get rid of Hillary.It’s easy to forget the capacities of Karl Rove’s operatives when it comes to slime.  It’s easy to forget their their long running war against Hillary.  Clearly, the Repubs preferred Obama to occupy the White House.  Hillary would have a chance to get hers back if she had taken the presidency.

This stuff is evil and pornographic.

Clinton’s Schedules as First Lady to be Released

Hmm I wonder if the morning of the Waco Branch Davidian Fire will be accounted for? Many people have concluded that Hillary might have been the one to force the confrontation – and Reno took the wrap.

The National Archives announced on Tuesday that 11,046 pages of Senator Hillary Rodham’s White House schedules will be released on Wednesday.

The records were the subject of a legal fight between Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, and the National Archives, which has been slow to comply with a request to release the records, arguing that the vetting process takes time.

As Hillary was gearing up for her run in 2007, nohillaryclinton.com got out the sleeze.  The creator of this website advertised for an “army” of passionate bloggers ready to take Hillary down.  This whole site is Hillary hate. Hillary’s alleged involvement in the aleged murder of Vince Foster seems to be the main coverage, but there’s much more.Check out the Republican hit on Hillary:

Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther, and goes much deeper than anyone realizes. Hillary has treated and continues to treat all working class Americans as a species apart, and screw them she did: http://theseedsof9-11.com

Ps. Say goodbye to the small blond man with breasts, boys.

Hillary in Bosnia

Hillary in Bosnia

The Repubs seem delighted with Obama’s prospects against Hillary in Texas and Ohio in mid March:

There was pandemonium this week when an image of Barack Obama in African garb appeared on the Drudge Report, sourced to the Clinton campaign. A day of witch hunts apparently yielded nothing, and Obama took Hillary’s word that as far as she knew her campaign was not behind it. Donning unusual cultural costumes is a diplomatic gesture, not a career-ender (like when Michael Dukakis wore a helmet and rode around in a tank to prove his national-security bona fides). The furor died down pretty quickly—for now—but it was one more element in a budding storyline, nurtured by conservatives, that is calculated to paint Obama as somehow “other,” not a red-blooded American, not one of us.

Republicans feeding the Hillary “racist” meme:

Sissy Matthews Sees Racism in Hillary’s Anti-Obama Ad

On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews voiced agreement with New York Times columnist Orlando Patterson, a Harvard sociology professor, as he read a passage from Patterson’s latest column during which the Harvard professor declared that, in watching Hillary Clinton’s recent campaign ad questioning Barack Obama’s qualifications for handling a 3:00 a.m. emergency, he “couldn’t help but think of D.W. Griffith’s Birth of a Nation, the racist movie epic that helped revive the Klu Klux Klan with its portrayal of black men lurking in the bushes around white society.” Declaring that the ad reminded him more of “a 911 call than 9/11” with “a mother protecting her kids from a prowler outside,” Matthews declared such an ad “would be racist.” (Transcript follows)

Hillary ripped for special funding of ‘gay’ activist group

A pro-family group wants to inform voters about the depths of Hillary Clinton’s pro-homosexual activism before the upcoming Super Tuesday primaries.

Conservative watchdog groups exposed Senator Clinton (D-New York) last week for garnering 261 pork projects (“earmarks”) for her supporters — more than five times as many as any other presidential candidate currently serving in Congress. E armarks are vague, written instructions attached to federal agency budgets that are often used as a “backdoor” to fund pet projects. Now Peter LaBarbera with Republicans for Family Values is drawing attention to one $300,000 funding earmark Clinton secured.

Those Repubs really hate their “gays”

Newsom may hurt Clinton more than he helps her in general election

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will join Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on the presidential campaign trail when she comes to town on Tuesday – and Republicans couldn’t be happier about it.

The way they see it, the more face time the pro-gay-marriage, pro-sanctuary-city, pro-gun-control mayor of the most leftist, liberal city in America spends with the Democratic front-runner, the better.

A recent news release distributed by the Republican National Committee to political reporters around the country lambasted Newsom as “Hillary’s San Francisco Treat” and took a direct guilt-by-association swipe at Clinton by highlighting the mayor’s signature last month on a local law to issue undocumented immigrants ID cards.

AND STILL, she almost made  it.


Obama-To Hijab or Not To Hijab

June 5, 2009

It should have been Hillary giving the speech, but it wasn’t.

ObaJunk on sale Egypt

ObaJunk on sale Egypt

But Uh Oh.  Looks like the Middle East is getting misty eyed over the same Obama speechifyin’ rope-a-dope  and pretend fire walking  American progressives are now used to.  From Alarabiya:

President Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia and Egypt is met in the Arab world with unprecedented wave of optimism and hope bordering on the fantasy and the ridiculous.

Does this BBC video mean at least somebody noticed the symbolic, short on solutions sophistry that’s Obie’s stock in trade?

Obama Aida size spectacle

Obama Aida size spectacle

On the way to deliver his umpteenth Lincolnesque, fanfared, speech-of-a-lifetime  with a backdrop resembling the elephant scene in the opera Aida, PrezObama stopped off in Saudi and Egypt, two of the Middle East’s most repressive regimes, and made  sure the speech porridge was just right for the decapitation King O’Oil Abdullah and President-for-life, Mubar-the-rack.  As a result of the friendly chat, he wiped his speech clean of all references to democracy, freedom, rule of law, human rights or women’s rights, all touchy subjects to our allies in that part of the world.

In case you missed it, here’s the text of the speech:

Blablablablablabla, Palestine,blablabla,Israel,blablablablablabla,rockets,blablabla, settlements. More blablabla defending Muslim rights,blablabla.

Then he came to his 6th (yup most important) point.  The right of women everywhere to wear the hijab, a scarf-like covering for the “hair”, required in Taliban country for keeping a woman’s head attached to the neck.  This topic, and the right of Muslim women to not be discriminated against in America was something every woman was hoping he would take a courageous stand on.  Brave words, Obama.

Hillary and Obie in Cairo

Hillary and Obie in Cairo

The Feminist Majority thought so.  They called his speech “revolutionary”.  Check out his pose, Hillary behind him in the approved hijab in the midst of a day-glo (vagina) pink frame.  For chrissakes, what is this picture telling us?!  Co-optation is good! See Hillary!

Again, he stepped out on thin ice to propose enough education for girls;enough so that they can count the change when purchasing a cow or a Kalashnikov, and for their privileges to remain in traditionally (oppressed) “female” roles without feeling the yoke of their Western sisters‘ scorn.  Yay, Obie, you really understand the tiny, minuscule aspirations of half of the world’s population!  And you can expertly play the divide and conquer game.  Jeezuz! Let’s stop bickering over petty bullshit like women’s rights and get on with the business of business.

Clearly, women’s liberty, for Obie, is wrapped up (no pun intended) in the hijab.  The hijab-the must have accessory for the high fashion Muslim female with nothing but time on her hands. It’s just a scarf, after all.  Something women wear to cover their hair, like if it’s windy or maybe they’re  driving their pink convertible  burkas down the road to Mecca, rocking out……

He alluded to Benazir BhuttoShe wore a hijab and only a BULLET stopped her from becoming once and future prime minister of Pakistan. Benazir Bhutto_image

PrezOdumbass swore he would go all the way to the supreme court to defend a woman’s right to wear one unless the wearer is parked in the picture at one of his rallies.

from the Detroit Press 6/19/08:

Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign apologized Wednesday after volunteers asked two Muslim women not to stand or sit behind the candidate at a rally in Detroit this week out of concerns about the appearance of traditional Muslim dress in published and broadcast visuals of the events.

Wow.  He didn’t want an hijab within a hundred yards of him.  Someone might think he’s a Muslim.  Ouch.

But he wouldn’t cross the room to protect a woman, from a beheading, a bombing or a burial alive.

Women, our movement is over unless we take it back from these assholes.

Way to go, BO.
