Another prominent leftist who loves The People in the abstract but is horrid to the individuals in her life. The daughter's rejection of feminism is also very interesting. But a very sad story.

Rebecca felt precisely that — a political symbol rather than a cherished daughter.

Hey, a lot of "political symbols" descended from these "progressives" are just outright killed, so consider yourself lucky.

To fems, children are a distraction, at best.

I am thankful everyday for my conservative mother.

Liberals pretend to care for “The Children”, even though they taught it so much. But in actuality, the opposite is usually on display.

Feminists and the Left in general, don’t understand the paramount importance of being a good mom (or dad).

There is no job, not neurosurgeon, CEO, high-powered attorney, butcher, baker or candlestick maker that is more important, not only for individual happiness and emotional health, but the future of western civilization itself.

Like Dickens’s Mrs Jellyby

I read Bleak House many years ago and thought Mrs. Jellyby was a spot-on description of a lot of liberals I know, even though it was written is 1853.

Liberals in English Departments love her black woman voice - sames goes for Maya Angelou. Neither have written much quality in the last decade or so.

Just another in a long line of leftists who cared about every family in the world but their own.

It's a lot less work that way. You don't have to remember birthdays.

This is written from the daughter Rebecca’s perspective, of course, but she does appear to be a strong, intelligent, and loving woman who has her priorities straight. Her mother, Alice, appears to be a liberal and feminist who bought the propaganda entirely and refuses to recognize the damage it does.

My mother and sister have the opposite relationship. My mother was attentive and responsible, but accidentally raised a rabid liberal idealogue (more her husband's doing than my parents') who won't let my mother see her grandchildren any more.

I suppose a malignant narcissism is at fault for both these sad situations! Certainly seems that Alice Walker and my sister are two of a kind...

“Mommie Leftist” Alice Walker, another classic Lefty who prefers the abstract (it’s always cleaner and clearer) over the Concrete (hey,it’s messy!). This was all going along so
well, until the daughter identified herself as an Obama
supporter.So they’re both Lefties, and the daughter distinguishes herself from her mother, by moving farther left. They’re both equally deluded, it seems. Leave them all, mother, daughter, husbands, etc. to their politically-defined realities. They both and all have a highly inflated sense of how important they are.

“People don’t really understand how strong ideology can be,” she says. “I think sometimes of that group and that feminism as being close to a cult. I feel I had to de-programme myself in order to have independent thought. It’s been an ongoing struggle. When you have a cult, you have a cult leader who demands a certain conformity . . . And when you have a celebrity who has cultural-icon status, economic power beyond what you can imagine, you can’t resist that person — if you want to stay in their realm. Because once you start challenging them, they kick you out.”

Food for thought.

I can see why Alice is upset. But she should be upset at herself, for being a monster. I’ll pray for Alice.

So she gave birth to a boy 3 years ago huh? She must have been very shocked to learn the true nature of men.

Liberalism is a mental disease and this story just illustrates how a histrionic and narcissistic borderline personality neglected and abused her own child in the name of celebrity femininsm. Typical.

“Another prominent leftist who loves The People in the abstract but is horrid to the individuals in her life. “

You're exactly right and this has been my exact experience and thoughts about and with my so called “liberal” friends, relatives and acquaintances in my life.

It's called hypocrisy. It's called blindness.

Pro-abortion women BREAK the maternal ties with their children and don’t even realize it.....it makes the children DOUBT whether they would have been aborted or not.

Her circle were questioning power relationships and whether a mother had any more knowledge than a child

If this statement is true, it makes absolutely no sense that the mother has total control over whether the child is allowed to live or be killed by literally being torn into pieces.

Totally contradictory ideas!! No wonder feminazis are so messed up!

Walker’s lousy parenting sounds to me like it was just a symptom of swaggering self-absorption, of the sort that can appear in people of all sorts of ideological persuasions. Idiocy like criticizing her daughter as hopelessly ignorant of important things because she’s “not from the South” has nothing to do with any brand of “feminism”. Walker was in the South when she married Rebecca’s father, so whose fault is it that she moved away and took her daughter to grow up elsewhere? Alice Walker’s problem is that she’s an arrogant jerk, not that she’s a “feminist”.
