Republicans Don’t Agree On Much But They’re 100% Unified On Degrading Women
February 22, 2012

There is nearly always some dissent within a political party concerning an issue that conflicts with a member’s personal ideology or benefit for constituents that prevents them from supporting a specific agenda. In the ever-expanding Republican war on women though, there is complete agreement that there are no limits on the degrading and pernicious means to deny women the right to good health whether it is reproductive health or not. There was outrage last week when House Republicans convened a panel on denying access to birth control with five men and no women, and although it is incredibly outrageous, no intelligent human being should have been the least bit surprised. There is this misconception that the war on women escalated when Catholic bishops asserted their control over the Republicans in Congress to block contraception coverage, but this war began in earnest in 2009 and the first major assault began on the second day of the 112th Congress, and contraception coverage was not the issue.

The audacious assault on contraception last Thursday revealed the anti-women sentiments of misogynist Republicans in congress and state legislatures, as well as donors to presidential candidates. Rick Santorum’s biggest donor gave advice to women on birth control and said, “On this contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s so inexpensive. You know, back in my days, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.” A Virginia legislator rationalized a law that forces women to undergo invasive transvaginal procedures prior to having an abortion said, “A woman already consented to being “vaginally penetrated when they got pregnant.” A woman’s enemy and chairman of the House Oversight Committee convened to deny women access to contraceptives defended excluding a woman to testify on the all-male panel by saying, “she is not appropriate and qualified.” Obviously, Republican males are better qualified to make health care decisions for women, and if Issa had allowed the woman to testify, the panel would have understood contraceptives serve important healthcare functions besides birth control.

The Republican presidential candidates are all allied with the Republicans in Congress and they have signaled that if elected, they will continue the war on women regardless of the outcome of the contraceptive battle. In fact, every Republican, male and female, joined the war against women in early 2009 during the healthcare reform debate. Some of the most important features of the Affordable Care Act addressed discrimination in the insurance industry against women, and it explains Republican’s opposition to the health law. The GOP’s war on women is really a war on women’s healthcare.

It is beyond belief that any woman would support a Republican for any office, and yet there they are; cheering Republican presidential hopefuls with full knowledge their first act if elected will be denying millions of their sisters, mothers and daughters critical health care coverage. The male Republican legislators and presidential hopefuls are pigs, but the women who support and campaign for them are stupid pigs for helping deny other women basic healthcare coverage. If a woman refuses preventative cancer screenings, new baby coverage, or contraception, it is their right to choose for themselves. It is stupid, but it is their right to be stupid. However, giving unwavering support to Republican lawmakers and candidates so they can deny every other woman healthcare coverage is pure evil. It is also a sign that any person who would deny women the right to healthcare options is deficient of basic human compassion and, since 2009, all Republicans qualify as despicable whether they are male or female. One just expects women to show more compassion than Republican males, but as the war on women demonstrates, there is no difference between male or female Republicans; they are all evil.

    Republicans totally agree on and Worship Greed, Power,Wealth and More Power and Wealth and Greed.and they stay awake nights identifying their competition and developing ingenious distractions to prevent Women, Minorities and others outside their select circle of Wealth from participating in the Pool of Power and Wealth.Educated and Politically Powerful Women are a real dangerous threat to Republican Power and Wealth.it is always about the money and having power over others.

    Let's face it, Republican men do not understand women or any of their body parts.So as true form, they will destroy what they do not understand. Although on the other hand, they do understand limp dicks.

    It never fails to surprise me that ANY woman would/could sit still for this crap. I don't blame men for being unwilling to give up power, but for women to abet them? Amazing.

    I agree, and they will pay for it come election day. They seem to forget that women STILL have the right to vote, and we can be very influential in persuading our mates to vote accordingly.

    They don't give a damn about the American people. That's been obvious to anyone paying attention for the last forty years. Now it should be apparent even to those who don't pay attention, or those for whom Fox Noise is the fragile vessel relaying them their informatio­n. The question needs to be asked:

    How many Americans are going to be stupid enough to stick with that disgusting party on Election Day next?

    Come to think about it, "the word "party" is a misnomer. They're not a political party in the strictest sense of the word. They haven't been in decades. They are now an organized criminal enterprise­.

    Wake up and smell the elephant dung.
