DNC: A WMD for Feminism

Posted by Skye |

Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price. My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young," to serve, Boxer told Rice. "You're not going to pay a price, as I understand it, within immediate family. So who pays the price? The American military and their families.''

Is this part of the Change for America that Democrats sold the American public this past November? John Gibson gives us the low down:

Feminists like Barbara Boxer want it both ways. They want abortion rights, they want women to have access to the workplace, but if the woman takes that freedom, does not marry, does not have children, evidently Boxer thinks that woman is unqualified to use her education, experience and judgment in her career.

Now, according to Boxer, that woman has to have children to have her career. Sound confusing? Sure is. It is Boxer logic that only applies to one woman: a single, conservative black woman who happens to be secretary of state.

Boxer wouldn't say to anybody else, you have to have kids to hold your job. She wouldn't dream of saying that to a CEO or to a sales manager. But she thinks it's OK to say it to a secretary of state because this particular woman secretary of state has supported a decision to go to war. Only when it comes to a conservative black woman would Boxer think to ask that question.

A black woman should be a liberal. A black woman should have voted for Boxer and voted against Bush, and a black woman should be opposed to the war. If this black woman is none of those things then there is something wrong with her. What could it be?

Oh, she hasn't been married, nor does she have children.
If I had said what Boxer said about a black woman secretary of state in a Democratic administration I'd have a pack of libs calling for my head.

All I want is an apology. Cough it up, Senator.

Senator Boxer needs to resign then apologize to Condi.

Is Boxer upset that she can't use the DNC's pet mantra of calling for Republican politicians to send their children to the frontlines of Iraq on Condi? This latest debacle by a Democrat raises questions that need to be addressed - publicly. Is there a level of racism and sexism that Democrats won't cross to score political points? Is this an example of the 'Big Tent' Party's tolerance towards racial minorities and women who have differing points of view? How can any sane woman support the DNC? Finally, how much damage to the credibility of feminists worldwide will the DNC inflict before being voted out of power in 2008?

I know I'm going to be repeating this over and over the next two years:


Boxer, defending herself against critics from the right, said Friday that she was "speaking truth to power" at a Senate hearing Thursday when she confronted the secretary of state -- who is unmarried and childless -- noting that neither she nor Rice will "pay a price" personally for sending more American troops to war
