Don't be fooled by groups w/ innocent names
This morning I received a media advisory reminder pursuant to “new research on women candidates/ barbara lee teleconference.” The discussion is to be about new research on women’s campaigns for governor in 2010. The research boasts 2010 as a turning point after 12 yrs of non- partisan research on women’s gubernatorial campaigns. The research found that women ran on a more level playing field, that voters prioritized more gender-neutral traits than in past yrs, and women candidates showed distinct advantages over men. The idea being that women have been treated unfairly in pursuit of elected office. On the surface this seems like a rather innocuous group holding one of the many teleconferences I am daily invited to participate in. But a cursory examination of the group hosting the teleconference shows anything but. It shows partnerships w/ some of the most virulent liberal women’s groups today. They may have innocuous names and their mission statements may seem to champion worthy concerns, but once again they are anything but. If these groups are non-partisan, if they are only interested in helping women candidates get elected, if they are concerned and opposed to the way all women seeking office are treated, why do they express selective outrage? Where was/is this group as Sarah Palin is savaged? Where were they when Nikki Haley of South Carolina suffered the worst kinds of accusations? Why didn’t they defend Christine O’Donnell, Sharon Angle, Carly Fiorina, and Michelle Bachman? The answer is that for all of seemingly inclusive language of concern for women, they are concerned about one kind of woman and one kind only. They are concerned about support for women who subscribe to a liberal and radical feminist agenda. Their support is a backdoor effort to get women supportive of these and other radical agendas elected for what I argue is the revisiting of destructive societal movements like the ERA movement and the further expansion of programs like title ix. I have found and history supports me, that evil never goes away – it simply seeks safe harbor in a different form, until it can resurface more dangerous and threatening than before. Do not be fooled. This is just one of the many groups who will solicit money and support from unsuspecting individuals. We must be aware of these groups and the candidates they are promoting. They must be opposed.
