Republicans have recently revealed their collective mental age of 5 (and a half!!!~!!) by employing a new strategy. They’re trying to convince people it’s Democrats, not Republicans, who are waging a war on women. After Mick Huckabee made the nonsense argument that trying to make employer insurance plans cover legitimate, sometimes necessary medications is exactly like saying women can’t control their libidos, Rand Paul has now stated:
“And I think some of the victimology and all of this other stuff is trumped up. We don’t get to any good policy by playing some sort of charade that somehow one party doesn’t care about women or one party is not in favor of women advancing, or other people advancing.”
Not a charade, assface. Your party’s war on birth control pills would raise the cancer risk for me and many millions of other women. Your party’s war on abortion rights, even in cases of rape, even when we’re talking eleven-year-old girls giving birth to their own siblings because their invariably conservative fathers are sick fucks, means your party wants little girls and women giving birth to children they can’t handle so they can’t compete on an equal footing with the men. Your party’s war on Planned Parenthood isn’t even just about abortion – it’s about ensuring that women get more cancer and gynecological problems, pure and simple. If you don’t have the nerve to step up and say, “Yeah, at the very least we’re okay with women dying for our ideology”, then shut your piehole and get out of the public spotlight, you diarrhettic turd.
And Texas’ new Voter ID restrictions which make a big fuss about women’s maiden names on their IDs are clearly aimed at keeping the little ladies from their civil voting rights.
“What I have used for voter registration and for identification for the last 52 years was not sufficient yesterday when I went to vote,” 117th District Court Judge Sandra Watts told KIII-TV.
The problem was that her maiden name was listed as her middle name on her driver’s license, whereas on her voter registration card, her actual middle name is listed. This small discrepancy was enough to have her flagged as a potentially fraudulent voter.
Bullshit. And Huckabee has defended his recent comments by blithering about empowering women. I hate how Republicans twist words – someone should gag them until they develop the chutzpah to actually come out and say what they mean. There’s nothing “empowering” about making birth control harder for women to get. You people are hypocrites of the highest order.
You won’t understand what the “war on women” is like until there’s a “war” on people like you, so let me fire the first shot across the bow. Mick Huckabee should have to fight for the least skilled job in the universe, because he’s just that stupid if he believes any of the bullshit dribbling out his mouth. You and the rest of your ilk, Mr. Paul, are such selfish assholes that you should have your voting rights restricted until you can prove you’re capable of thinking what’s good for the whole country and not just your sad noodle.
Fuck you, GOP. You have indeed waged wars against women, against classes, against minorities, and now you have to deal with what you have invited. Don’t like it? Should’ve thought of that before.
