Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Recycles ‘War on Women’ Theme

Posted on | May 19, 2014 | 17 Comments

The DNC chairwoman issued a statement on Women’s Health Week in which she evidently presumes that (a) abortion is essential to “women’s health,” (b) opposition to abortion is an “extreme agenda,” and (c) all women think ObamaCare is awesome:

[A]t the state and national level, Republicans have repeatedly taken actions that restrict access to health care for women and families. Yes, they’ve voted more than 50 times to repeal or undermine Obamacare, but their disregard goes beyond even that. Just last week, the RNC passed a resolution that makes their restrictive and extreme women’s health agenda one of their focuses going into the midterm elections. . . .
When the RNC backs extreme policies like that, there are real-world consequences for women. In my home state, Florida Republicans including Gov. Rick Scott are taking constrictions on women’s health to a new level. The state legislature recently passed two new restrictions that will interfere with a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions with her doctor, and instead inserts the GOP’s extreme agenda into these very private discussions . . .
If Rick Scott signs these bills — and I’m sorry to say that I’m confident he will — my home state will be the next in a long line of states to roll back the clock on women’s rights. It is senseless and it is wrong. This National Women’s Health Week, I’m standing with Florida women.

    A Solomonic test for the immeasurably stupid Debbie the Dope. Let’s say there is a controversy between a lower middle class female entrepreneur who claims she was raped by a powerful political figure and the politician’s ambitious wife who lies and covers up the politician’s crime. Who’s side will you take, oh frizzy haired imbecile? Thought so, 100% of the time Debbie the Dummy supports Hillary Clinton over Juanita Broaderick. The “war on women” is a joke,

    I might add that these little “culture wars” are fought and won on linguistic grounds. Hence, the semantic obfuscations like “war-on-women”.

    No self-consistent conservative should use these terms. Quite foolish.

    “…and instead inserts the GOP’s extreme agenda into these very private discussions . . .”
    Excuse me? No Republican wants to “insert” anything into her “private” anything… #rapefantasydogwhistle

    Only in America does being knee-deep in the viscera of your own dead children count as a “choice,” “women’s health,” “reproductive freedom,” “the right to control your destiny” while wearing an AK-47 t-shirt to school count as a crime.

    I still say she is secretly the transsexual Don Knotts.,rthe rumors of his death being a means of disguising his new life and career.

    Even worse: wearing THE AMERICAN FLAG on a t-shirt is verboten in some schools.

    John 8:44’s very clear about the depraved nature of the likes of Wasserman-Schwartz:

    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

    As true then as it is today.

  • Quartermaster

    I can understand. Do you realize, however, how much injustice was perpetrated under that flag?

  • JeffS

    Try “#EEEEEWWWWWWWW” instead, huh?

    The “jazz hands” make me think it’s probably Charles Nelson Reilly’s evil zombie twin.

    Aside from “less than all others, combined,” you mean?

    Also, I see you neglected the auto-denunciation. You must be in a hurry or something.

    That picture calls for a strongly worded “trigger warning” lest you set off a tsunami of microaggressions.

    I thought Obama was a fool for choosing Debbie as DNC Chairman, but it seems he struck the right balance of cynicism in his choice. Only those who will believe any lie told by any lips are still supporting Democrats now.

    Unfortunately, they have arranged for enough people to be on the federal dole that the parasite vote will keep them competitive for the foreseeable future.

  • Quartermaster

    That’s only half in jest. I’m a good Southron, so you can imagine my position on the US flag vs the Confed flag.

    Why is it that “Women’s Health” always means abortion? Are there any health issues facing women other than abortion?
