Posted on 10/29/2013 11:13:11 AM PDT by Kaslin
The liberal claim that Republicans are engaging in a perpetual “war on women” seems to have taken a new turn on MSNBC. No longer does the term “war on women” apply only to access to abortion but now encompasses voting rights as well.
Appearing on MSNBC on October 29, liberal MSNBC host Thomas Roberts claimed that Republicans are trying to restrict a woman’s access to the ballot box. This comes one week after fill-in host Michael Eric Dyson made a similar complaint on The Ed Show. [See video after jump.]
MSNBC's Roberts: Republicans Want To Stop Women From Voting
Speaking with Terry O’Neill, president of the liberal National Organization for Women, Roberts introduced a segment that initially centered around abortion before quickly focusing on new voting laws in Texas. O’Neill began her talking points by claiming that:
The Republican Party in Texas is not only waging war on women's access to reproductive health care, they're even waging war on women's access to the ballot box. They are now enforcing rules that are aimed to stop women from voting.
Roberts seemed happy to take Ms. O’Neill’s bait playing a clip of State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth), who is running for governor of Texas, complaining that:
I was required to sign an affidavit because the name on my voter registration card is slightly different than the name on my driver's license. My driver's license includes my maiden name. My voter registration card does not.
Roberts continued the narrative asking:
So are women getting the wake-up call that they need about what's taking place for Republicans there trying not just to restrict access to affordable health care, health care that they want, but their vote?
Nowhere in the segment did Roberts or O’Neill explain how Wendy Davis or any woman was prevented from voting, only that the state senator was required to sign an affidavit proving that she was who her voter registration says she was. In fact, according to the Texas Secretary of State website, if there is a confliction regarding your name when you vote, “You may continue to vote during this period. If you do not have your certificate in hand, you may sign an affidavit at the polls and present a form of identification.”
Rather than actually inform viewers of the provisions of the Texas law, Roberts and Ms. O’Neill seemed perfectly content misleading their audience, all the better to poison their viewers, particularly women, against voting Republican.
At MSNBC, the network has moved far beyond reporting the news with a liberal spin. Instead the goal is distorting the news to further a liberal agenda. Roberts should be ashamed of himself for sacrificing journalistic credibility in service of reliably toeing the party line.
Thank you. Your recognition is all the thanks I seek.
Female corpses, female dogs, female illegals, female minors, female felons
Yeah, lots should be prevented from voting
I've been seeing those comments more and more lately. They make my skin crawl.
Next: REPUBLICANS ARE REPTILIAN ANDROIDS!!!1!111

NEXT: LONG LOST RECORDS SHOW ADOLPH HITLER STARTED THE TEA PARTY!!!111
It's bad enough the Left uses Alinsky's rules for radicals against us, without you doing it too.
Misinformation ... An insidious communist weapon.
heh heh . . .
Pictures of Tea Parties show lots of women.
Pictures of Muslim protests show ZERO women.
Liberals are blind ...
OHFERGAWD’S SAKE! Will they stop with this war-on-women bs? Does anyone other than the farthest left loons buy this booschwa?
She says that as if that would be a bad thing.
(Ducking for cover)
Amazing. Even when Obamacare is destroying their ‘health care’ far more effectively than their worst delusions about conservatives could, they just can’t let go of their rampant hate.
No comment LOL
Libs want to take away wimmins health insurance policies.
I was required to sign an affidavit because the name on my voter registration card is slightly different than the name on my driver’s license. My driver’s license includes my maiden name. My voter registration card does not.
It is called “get your damned paperwork ducks in a row you damned fool”......
I say this as a woman who has her proverbial poop in a group.
When they grow up they bring that type of thinking into their politics.
I don’t believe they shouldn’t vote only they should stop voting stupidly.
Wasn’t Susan B. Anthony a Republican?
Drive either! :)
LOL thats MSNBC for ya..dumb as a bucket of rocks
That is a Halloween poster, right?? I need one of those. What a gaggle of leftist thieves.
Why do Liberals hate women?
I think we should suspend all national elections, send congress and the senate home for an yet to be determined timeframe. The governors of each state shall appoint a replacement for their senators. As for congress, my suggestions all end in bloodshed.........so someone else needs a few workable solutions.
These same libtards would deny the vote to Sarah Palin and every other conservative woman
Of course, some here have no wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, female acquaintances or girl friends
I once saw a republican kick a dog.
I’m surprised these women don’t complain about Jesus not picking any women to be among His disciples...
I agree with that, but this also goes for men who vote stupidly
It can be used on April Fool’s Day too. ;-)
Yes, but only a few, thank goodness.
Facts, FACTS! We don’t need no stink in facts, we got the MEDIA!
Did global warming cause the ObamaCare train wreck? Film at eleven.
I often wonder if they believe this kind of crap, or if they are under instructions to tell the “Big Lie” often enough so the sheep believe them.
If low-information citizens were enlightened about the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers, then voters of both sexes would probably lose interest in what’s going on in DC anyway.
After all, one of the few constitutonal powers that the feds actually have to regulate anything within a state’s borders is the postal service.
I guess it didn't occur to this airhead media darling that plenty of people in Texas, including members of her family, have names "slightly different" from her and all the poll worker was doing was verifying she really was the same registered voter?
I totally agree. The problem I see is that women for some reason seem more susceptible to mind control tactics.
This is a problem in Texas and I know it to be the case since it happened to me. When I moved to this county, I filled out an application to be a voter under my present name, the same name I voted under in the county I left. I got back a letter from the voter registrar that the name was different than the one on my driver’s license and I had to register under the name on my driver’s license. I filled out the form again using the name on my driver’s license and I was registered.
So, yes, I had trouble registering that a male would not - my driver’s license had my maiden name on there and I don’t go by that name now. I questioned this at the driver’s license bureau when I had to renew my license and the lady said it would take an act of God to go through the process to get the name changed.
It is the truth registering to vote is more complicated for women than men.
But, but they get free birth control......of course, it will only cost them about $500.00 a month. ROFLMAO.
Roberts publicly acknowledged he is gay while speaking at the annual convention of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) in Miami, Florida, held on September 8, 2006
He has been in a relationship with Patrick D. Abner since 2000. On June 25, 2011, one day after same-sex marriage in New York was legalized, Roberts announced his engagement to Abner on his Twitter page. The couple was married on September 29, 2012
I knew a woman in Vermont who was so hot for Clinton she said she would love to sleep with him if the opportunity ever arose. When I asked her what her husband would think, she replied that “he would have to get over it”. Guess we know who SHE voted for...
Liberals push outrageous lies, because they have no facts to support their positions.
[Said with Australian accent]: Maybe a republican ate your baby...
Women are more Marxist than men.
Pray America is Waking Up
Boy, the libs are reaching deep deep into their old playbooks. Now they scooped up the stuff from about 1904.
You could take any large group of individuals and find “some” that believe the mother ship is hovering on the back side of the moon. However, it is a complete load of crap to suggest that there is any statistically significant number of people on this fourm that belive women should not be allowed to vote.
Questionable identification, and the refusal to thoroughly investigate the matter, got us eight years (so far) of the Kenyan usurper. If this womyn is running for governor, she needs to furnish proof of everything. No exceptions.
BTW, how did Chucky miss the opportunity to get his ugly mug on this poster?
I just want to slap women like that.
I was working on a video, set to music (B-52’s, Shiny Happy people). The concept was to create a mosaic of a larger image, that contained smaller images of liberals expressing themselves. I wanted the video to “zoom-in” and “zoom-out” on the still photos of unhinged and happy liberals.
After seeing hundreds of images of leading liberals, I found myself unable to continue this project.
Which, ironically was my point to begin with. But, targeted to Liberals.
