Abortion War On Women Wingnuts


In addition to recommitting to the fight against Obamacare, Republicans will also be urged to recommit to being sufficiently anti-abortion at their upcoming policy retreat.

Furthermore, they aim to put a rest to this talk of a “War on Women” which, as you know, clearly doesn’t exist.

RESOLVED, The Republican National Committee condemns the Democrats’ deceptive “war on women” rhetoric;

RESOLVED, The Republican National Committee will support Republican pro-life candidates who fight back against Democratic deceptive “war on women” rhetoric by pointing out the extreme positions on abortion held by Democratic opponents;

Resolved! There’s no War on Women to see here, or here, or there, or here, or over there. It’s really the Democrats(!) who are waging a War on Women. They believe women should be able to make their own choices for their own bodies. Can you believe that?

Apparently their solution to the problem is to pretend it doesn’t exist which is fine because it assures me that they’ll stay losing. Please proceed.

War on Women Fiction

“Now if the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars then every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, so then we’d have a problem with caterpillars. I mean, the fact of the matter is it’s a fiction.” -RNC Chairman Reince Priebus on the War on Women

    Have to love the sign being held by one of these theocrats on the CNN page. “Pro-women = Pro-life!”

    Also, “Freedom is slavery” and “We have always been at war with East Asia.”

    Oh, the poor dears, having to suffer under the savage onslaught of “the Democrats’ deceptive ‘war on women’ rhetoric.” However will they endure it? This, never forget, is coming from the party that has for at least forty years depended almost entirely on deceptive rhetoric about the Democrats. As they say over at Sadly, No!: IT’S ALWAYS PROJECTION.

    On the other hand, it is heartening that the Rs refer to “Democratic opponents” instead of their preferred “Democrat” formulation, at least in this draft. Five will get you eight that will be changed before the final document is approved.

    All the more reason for Democrats to keep pushing the “war on women” phrase and concept. The Republicans have gotten good (if reprehensible) mileage out of “death panels”, “death taxes”, “socialism”, etc. (although “Obamacare”) as a pejorative kinda backfired on them). No reason Democrats shouldn’t (and several reasons why they should) make sure Republicans and “war on women” join in people’s minds like, well, death and taxes.

    And if it makes the Republicans whine like the four-year-olds the really are because they don’t like it, well, that’s just a bonus.
