The Four Strategies Of Conservative Female Abuse (Left's Dehumanization Of Conservative Women Alert)
Townhall.com ^ | 9/03/2008 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 09/02/2008 9:28:28 PM PDT by goldstategop

There's something about outspoken conservative women that drives the Left mad. It's a peculiar pathology I've reported on for more than 15 years, both as a witness and a target. Thus, the onset of Palin Derangement Syndrome in the media, Democratic circles and the cesspools of the blogosphere came as no surprise. They just can't help themselves.

Liberals hold a special animus for constituencies they deem traitors. Minorities who identify as social and economic conservatives have left the plantation and sold out their people. Women who put an "R" by their name have abandoned their ovaries and betrayed their gender. As female Republican officeholders and female conservative public figures have grown in number and visibility, so has the progression of Conservative Female Abuse. The astonishing vitriol and virulent hatred directed at GOP Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the most severe manifestation to date.

The first stage of Conservative Female Abuse by the Left is infantilization. Right-wing women can't possibly believe what they say they believe about the sanctity of life, self-defense, free markets or foreign policy. They must be submissive little dolls of the White Male Hierarchy. Or, as a far-Left (Is there any other kind of Left in San Francisco?) San Francisco Chronicle columnist wrote of first lady Laura Bush, they must be put in their place as "docile doormats" with no brains of their own. True to form, no sooner had John McCain announced Gov. Palin as his veep pick than jeers of "Palin = neocon puppet" sprouted across the Internet.

The second stage of CFA is sexualization. A conservative woman is not merely a sellout. She is an intellectual prostitute. Unable or unwilling to argue with them on the merits, detractors resort to mocking the physical appearance of their ideological opponents in skirts and denigrating them with vulgar epithets. MSNBC hosts insulted former GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson's accomplished wife and mother of two, Jeri Thompson, as working the stripper pole. Newspaper cartoonists Ted Rall, Pat Oliphant and Jeff Danziger have caricatured Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, including as a mammy, thick-lipped parrot and a Bush "House nigga" armed with "hair straightener." New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd derided former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, a Republican, for applying "her makeup with a trowel."

True to form, Dowd was first out of the box to snicker at Gov. Palin's beauty pageant past, ridicule her "beehive and sexy shoes" and compare her path to the vice-presidential nomination as a "hokey chick flick." Joe Biden backhandedly praised her as "good looking." And Left-wing bloggers worked overtime on lurid Photoshops of Palin as a bikini model and porn star. At the Democratic Underground, a highly trafficked liberal website raising money for Barack Obama, members held a contest to come up with nicknames and posters to slime GOP Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin -- and then to "spread [them] all over the 'Net." Among the nicer entries: "Cruella," "Gidget," "Governor Jesus Camp," "VPILF," "Fertilla the Huntress," "Iditabroad" and "KILLER PYSCHO FUNDIE B***H FROM HELL!!"

The third stage of CFA is demonization. When the Left tires of hurling whore insults, it turns conservative women in the public eye into nefarious creatures. Bill Maher called Laura Bush "Hitler's dog." George Carlin attacked Barbara Bush as "the Silver douche bag." A Huffington Post website member wrote of Nancy Reagan: "Like her evil husband, she has lived far too long. Here's hoping the hag suffers for several weeks, then croaks in the tub." Another commenter added: "I feel no pity for the bitch who took delight in watching thousands die of a horrible disease and watching the poor having to eat out of dumpsters because of her husband's political beliefs."

True to form, rumors of Palin being a crypto-Nazi surfaced on the Internet and in the fringe media. And liberal critics used her gun-rights record to smear her as bloodthirsty.

The final stage of CFA is dehumanization. Conservative women aren't real women according to the liberal feminist establishment's definition. Remember when Gloria Steinem called Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a "female impersonator"? Or when curdled NOW leader Patricia Ireland instructed Democrats to vote only for "authentic" female political candidates? Or when Al Gore's fashion consultant Naomi Wolf described the foreign-policy analysis of Jeane Kirkpatrick as being "uninflected by the experiences of the female body"?

Echoing the bottom-feeders in the liberal blogosphere, mainstream journalists and Obama water-carriers now question Palin's commitment to motherhood and even challenge her prenatal care decisions in an effort to destroy her. Forget about questioning their patriotism. I question their sanity.

The Left has ways of discrediting and marginalizing conservative women. It dehumanizes them through reducing them to children and if that doesn't work, depicts them as whores who have sold out feminism for the male patriarchy, it turns them into monsters and finally it declares they are not women. What the Palin Derangement Syndrome is all about in the end as Michelle Malkin would agree, is about making sure women do not consider embracing conservatism or they can expect to be personally assaulted by those who claim to love women. Which is ironic because those who claim to have women's interests at heart are the ones who batter women suspected of disagreeing with them. Sarah Palin is only the most recent victim of a deranged Left drunk with the quest for absolute power and that means destroying all who present a threat to that quest.

I think Sarah is going to inspire people on the campaign trail. I think she can stand up to all the crap that’s going on .

It is strange that women are supposed to be loyal liberal Democrats, blacks are supposed to be loyal liberal Democrats. It’s like the liberals don’t want people to think for themselves about issues and candidates. They just want an unthinking vote for the Democrat candidate because Republicans are evil, racist, sexist, support Wall Street, support tax cuts, support Bush, or whatever reason is given.

Fear is one of the 4 letter words. The Democrats want to put fear into the minds of blacks and women to get their unswerving loyalty on election day. If people are fearful and don’t think for themselves, they are easier to control.

Lynching IS the word that should be used by our side.

Libs hate that word, especially when it's used to describe their behavior. They have no qualms using it against us, so let's return the favor.

After all, they are the Party of Sheets Byrd aren't they?

The media culture and its lefty allies have never understood real women.

To them, a typical female voter is either a corporate power-freak harpy who lists abortions on her resume, or a hairy legged lesbian clinging bitterly to her cats.

The Dems have taken women for granted, and a lot of women are mad as hell over it.

Yes.

They've hidden their nature for 40 years, but John McCain has flushed them out.

They're toast.

MM is correct. It was an old Nazi trick to show the jews with a rat face with glasses. The Germans did not see the jews as people. If the conservative base showed up outside the New York Times, protested and broke windows every time the article were liberal leaning, the tone would change.

This is a Lynchmob of Establishment media lynching of a scared 17 yr old girl and they need to be called out on it. This is exactly why girls get abortions from a hypocritical judgemental society. The fact that Oblack is behind it only makes it more ironic.

How many members of the Old press has had abortions or contributed to abortions/pregnancies? The difference is that the Palins love and protect their daughter w/o judging her.

Pray for W and Our Troops

What I love about those that the left has determined are traitors is that they don’t feel the need to dance around. It is sometimes frustrating to listen to the white male conservative voices give a somewhat apologetic answer. Then listen to Larry Elder, Mark Levin or Ann Coulter say what needed to be said. Sarah (and her family) will come through the fire with an understanding of the enemy and how to fight them, that we will every know.

Just for the hell of it, someone from our side, Newt?, should ask one of these “Journalists” if they are trying to Shame Governor Palin’s daughter into having an abortion.

I'd pay to see the look on their faces and hear the stammering.

"Liberals are the most vicious things on this planet."

I can no longer use the word "liberal" in describing them, as it's literal definition is "generous." I prefer "leftists" or "Bolsheviks."

I suspect Mrs. Palin is already familiar with the breed.

"Just for the hell of it, someone from our side, Newt?, should ask one of these “Journalists” if they are trying to Shame Governor Palin’s daughter into having an abortion."

This is EXACTLTY what they are doing and this is EXACTLY what has been happening to our wives and daughters and sisters for over sixties years! You say this so smugly like it isn't true....but I tell you it is true!

This is part of the common bullying from the collective mindset. Abuse of women who don't go along with the collective is very harsh. Apparently even watching it happen right before your very eyes in the media is not enough for some people.

These vicious attacks are what the women of America go though on a local level everyday when they make these kinds of decisions.

Welcome to our world.

Dowd, no doubt, is jealous of Sara Palin’s very good looks and her success in life.

Yes, envy. I recall writing you about how Hillary must have felt if she watched Sara’s speech. She would be quaking in her boots at the thought of ‘meeting up’ with her in the future.

Yes, I think I wrote on a thread that Hillary shows up as being cold and calculating and Sara can be stern but in a nice calm poised way. She is lovely and likable.
