Posted on 05/28/2012 6:00:20 PM PDT by Kaslin
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's Melissa Harris-Perry show, comedienne Margaret Cho wondered why some women are Republicans as she asserted that the GOP is "a party that's so against our rights, our reproductive rights, so many rights in so many ways."
Cho also complained that Sarah Palin tries to "beat feminism down," claiming that "Sarah Palin wouldn't exist without feminism."
After host Melissa Harris-Perry recounted a GOP drive to appeal to women, Cho wondered:
What are women getting out of the GOP? That's, I always question that. I always wonder. This is a party that's so against our rights, our reproductive rights, so many rights in so many ways. What do we get from them? What do women get from them?
A bit later, after Harris-Perry brought up moderate Republican women like Olympia Snowe who are getting out of politics, Cho brought up Sarah Palin as she responded:
I think they've disappeared just because of social issues and women are such a huge thing. I mean, women, I think, in the GOP are looking for an identity, and I think that's why Sarah Palin's, you know, her appearance was so exciting for them because here is somebody who is really kind of like a showpiece for all of our conservative views and somebody who legitimizes what I think is backward really about, you know, women's rights because, you know, these women wouldn't exist, Sarah Palin wouldn't exist without feminism. Yet, she tries to beat feminism down every chance she gets.
The left seems to be in free fall they must know the jig is up
I suspect that many women are republicans because unlike Ms. Cho they actually like being woman.
Is that what Brett Kimberlin said?????
Margaret C. Ho is just jealous that Bristol kicked her ample arse in DWTS.
I thought she starved in North Korea 5 years ago....NOT!!!
My first question is:exactly who is Melissa Harris-Perry?
My second one is:exactly who is Margaret Cho?
Hmmm. Sarah Palin epitomizes feminism. She’s not only a good mother. She’s an ex-governor of a state. Plus, real freedom to choose mean it’s OK to choose to raise a family, be a faithful spouse, believe in Christ, and not abort difficult pregnancies. It’s also OK to choose to work in or out of the home.
What the leftists call feminism is not freedom and equality for females. It’s repression. To them, a woman isn’t free if she’s not killing her children, thumbing her nose at God, sacrificing everything for a career, and bedding down every man she can.
The insanity of her standing is that somehow, the Left is for reproductive freedom. They are not. They are for killing babies. They are for sterilization. They are for population control. You can’t get any more controling than Communist China. Yet that is their model.
Messed up. Completely messed up.
I don't give a crap what she thinks or says.
Bristol sure did. Yay
I don’t consider it a “right” to kill the unborn.
Margaret Cho? How 1997!
Margaret Cho is still in showbiz? I thought she was losing her mind to syphilis in some VD clinic.
Real women are republican in order to protect their families from the antifamily agenda of the left.
Margaret Cho was funny - 10 years ago.
They are SO jealous of the absolutely beautiful GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN they can hardly talk fast enough to villify her fast enough to finish their diatribes before everybody quits listening to them.
GOVERNOR PALIN is drop-dead gorgeous, has a drop-dead gorgeous husband, has traditional values, has done it without affirmative action . . and that ain’t all . . Miss Cho can just eat her jealous heart out!
Cho is a man-hating flaming lesbian who does not even need nor use birth control, so that right there disqualifies her from trying to represent the sexual needs and issues of normal women. This is like my cat taking on the role of being spokeman for women in America.
Lesbos are terribly resentful and jealous of successful, beautiful, heterosexual, married, Christian mothers like Palin. This is why every smash mouth queer in the country has gone after her like they contracted rabies.
You got that a bit sideways. She actually ATE part of North Korea five years ago.
Margaret Cho is the anti-feminist. She doesn’t give a damn about women, just about leftist politics.
“”why some women are Republicans as she asserted that the GOP is “a party that’s so against our rights, our reproductive rights, so many rights in so many ways.””
Speaking for this old broad, I would say it’s because God gave me a brain to use and I haven’t spent my 76 years concentrating on just being a female.
I saw the show.
There is something that I find absurd about a lesbian complaining about possibly losing ‘her reproductive rights’, and worse yet, that so many don't see it too.
Maybe the courts should bad 'natural reproduction' because it was designed to be discriminatory, as marriage was obviously. Clearly God was not as open minded as the gays and libs claim he was in creating us.
No one is against your rights.
We want you to work so we don’t have to talk to you so much ....
Sarah has attained all the goals for which feminism claims women should strive, she did it ON HER OWN, and they HATE her for it!! She paid her own way to college, requiring a longer time than most folks to finish, because of her need to work at the same time. She started a family, and when she got mad about something to do with her local government, decided to run for office to do something about it. She didn't have any advantages because she was a woman; far from it. As she progressed into higher offices, she continued to have to fight her way through. That culminated in her running for Governor, and she had to fight the old boys network of BOTH parties to win that office.
She didn't depend on her gender, or feminism to give her any advantages along the way. She did it on her own, which feminists CLAIM they want, but when it's a conservative woman doing exactly that, she's somehow working against feminism.
our reproductive rights,
Cho is one who should NOT reproduce. Just saying~
Its not like they have a dog in the fight.
As if Cho is going to show up some day unexpectedly pregnant?
Why a thread about a has-been comedian who’s obviously hungering for publicity? Obscurity is where she belongs.
YEp, feminism is all about abuse and genocide, and they say they are being beat down...
Basically we have let the convicts and insane run our headlines... the bowels of hell have been unleashed on Earth...
Ah, demon possession’s a b!tch these days.
“They’re taking our rights away and trying to oppress women,” the ASIAN WOMAN spewed in her latest propaganda pitch, just before signing her weekly paycheck for $10,000.
You can’t make up this type of hypocritical hilarity.
Hah, the reverse is the real reason for feminist rage - the PURPOSE of feminism was to PREVENT Sarah Palins FROM existing - and yet, here she is.
Sarah's existence itself PROVES the impotence of feminism - and feminists prove that truth by shrieking and foaming hysterically, just like the little bitches they always have been inside.
” There is something that I find absurd about a lesbian complaining about possibly losing her reproductive rights, and worse yet, that so many don’t see it too.”
We see it : )
The GOP is for your rights, Margaret. You just seem to be unclear on what exactly constitute rights.
And feminism needs to be beat down. Like Rodney King. And often. And by someone who knows how. I can’t think of anybody better to do it than Sarah Palin.
What a disgusting lesbian turd face that “woman” is. She is jealous of the Palin family because they are HAPPY..I guess if your against murdering your unborn baby and the perverted gay lifestyle your not a “Feminist” PLEASE, there is NO such thing as a feminist. Feminism to leftists is someone who loves fags and loves murdering the unborn..that is their definition of a “Feminist.” Margaret Cho is disgusting to look at, when she was dancing on DWTS she was full of tattoos, disgusting FREAK
Militant Lesbian hag calls insults at real women.
Margaret, you have the right to be the most stupid, ignorant b***h you can figure out how to be. And nobody is trying to take that away from you.
I think it is the simple difference between a civilized person and an uncivilized person. A civilized person gives precedence to their rational thoughts and uses their thoughts and morals to control their sexual behavior. An uncivilized person, or in this case, an uncivilized woman bases all actions on whether or not it affects her vagina.
It is clearly apparent to me that this Cho person is a walking, talking vagina. I am not suprised that she lacks understanding of behavior that does not include her vagina.
Lesbian activists are obsessed with other women - including heterosexual women. They have a warped view of men and they want to impose it upon other girls and women. This is how they reproduce.
Rush said it best, “Feminism was created so as to give unattractive women access to the mainstream of society.”
Mo's "All American Girl" is one of the most classic sh1t-the-nest network debuts ever. There are greenlighters who still remember that disaster 18 years later.
Why is it always ABC with these insufferable bitches? At least Brett Butler got 5 seasons before imploding lol...
Ms. Cho you have the right to remain a bloated carpet munching troll.
Cho has always been an irritated, unhappy lesbian. What does one expect to hear from her?
Margaret Cho? Is this what we have devolved to? Making news from the utterances of this vapid bull-cow?
It was Hillary that killed feminism.
As for Margaret Cho, she is a self-loathing piece of trash, and expecting any kind of logical political analysis from her is akin to expecting my dog to recite Hamlet's soliloquy.
