Let’s Slut-Shame @WendyDavisTexas!

“Over time, the Davises’ marriage was strained. In November 2003, Wendy Davis moved out. Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. ‘It was ironic,’ he said. ‘I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.’ . . . In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part . . .”

Smitty already took a whack at the Wendy Davis piñata today, and that’s probably enough Wendy Davis bashing for the week.

She’s so far down in the polls as to be hopelessly doomed. She will lose to Greg Abbott in November without any further help from us.

However, the point of mocking progressive celebrity women is not because such mockery will contribute to their electoral defeat. No, the purpose of deriding Democrat women is to inspire feminists to frothing rage over the alleged sexism of conservatives.

Of course, Republican women are routinely disparaged in the most foul misogynist ways by left-wingers, and feminists never say a word about that, but let Rush Limbaugh make a wisecrack about Sandra Fluke and suddenly it’s a right-wing #WarOnWomen.

Conservatives are going to be slammed as misogynists no matter what we say or do, so we might as well have some fun and try to do something that will provoke a wildly unhinged Amanda Marcotte rant.

Most of the resentment over Wendy Davis’s fudging of her biography — “My language should be tighter,” she admitted to the Dallas Morning News — is focused on her depiction of herself as a struggling “single mom,” despite the way she hooked up with an older sugar daddy when she was 21, married him when she was 24, moved into a posh neighborhood, and got him to pay her way through Harvard Law. Then Wendy left him with custody not only of the daughter they’d had together, but also with her daughter from her first marriage.

Not to be judgmental or anything, but that’s scarcely the tale of hardship and woe that wins much sympathy from actual single moms, many of whom are conservative women, and disinclined to RSVP to the Wendy Davis Feminist Victimhood Pity Party.


You get the general idea: We want to force feminists to defend the real Wendy Davis — a liar, a cheater, a selfish gold-digger — and to make them explain how her actual biography (and her dishonesty about her biography) is consistent with progressive ideals. And if they refuse to fight Wendy’s fights for her, we’ll then have a wonderful headline: “Feminists Abandon Democrat Wendy Davis.”

Heads we win, tails they lose.

    No, they have grown up and realize the world is not governed by moral principals, and life is short, and in the end all that matters is winning the game. The means to that end is beyond irrelevant and a load of hand wringing over moral failings is for pussies. You’re naive if you think otherwise. The whole world is corrupt, especially US institutions(even baseball has lost it’s purity) and bilking some schmuck for a harvard education so you dont have to be saddled with loans may look bad, but in the long run she’s without college loans and a Harvard degree and that can only be beneficial.

    Like I said, I think some feminists are sincere and absolutely harmless toward men. I know that’s a scary and hard to fathom concept for conservatives, but it’s true. I have known the other as well. Girls running around with armpit hair, wont go near a penis, and generally have nothing but disdain for men, but will whore themselves out online for dinner at an excellent restaurant and to a lonely man who needs companionship. Im sure they might even have sex if need be. Even prostitutes have taken up feminist language about their “body” and ownership.

    You have two choices, 1) Moral Principles, or 2) Lex Talionis. Without #1, you will get #2. I grew up when #1 ruled, but am watching #1 fade and seeing #2 displace it. Ben Franklin said it well, “We will be ruled by God, or we will be ruled by tyrants.” It has always been thus.
    #1 allows a society to function in peace. #2 gets you anarchy with the strong doing what they will, and the weak enduring what they must. Given that you may well be one of the weak, you may wish you had grown up and saw the mistake this society is making and do something to help preserve what had been the greatest society the earth has ever seen.
    Instead, you refuse to grow up.

    Dimocraps everywhere like to think they are good people. That’s why they are so willing to give poor people the shirt off your back.

    Like I said….

    Please……it has always been this way, it’s just that now it’s right out in the open. And as far as this being the “greatest society the earth has ever seen” underneath it all it was rotten and had a history of oppression, slavery, corruption, and genocide. Morality was here for the little people and that’s about all while our superiors played a different game altogether, ignoring any and all rules of decency in order to fulfill their aims. America’s chickens have come home to roost!

    Wendy Davis, as a person and as a candidate, is not important to the Dems. Like the late, unlamented Dr. Essay Vanderbilt, Davis will become Trayvon Martin for the Dems to use to distract from Obamacare, the tax and regulatory regime, the economy, and Iran fielding fully functional nukes while Russia and China divide the world into 2 spheres of influence.
    Davis is Cindy Sheehan without an honorably dead son. As for Warren, her grand larceny of funds set aside for Native Americans could work against Dems on the reservations, if the RNC was functional or the TEA Party had the infrastructure.

    No “please” about it. You’ve just conceded my point.
