WASHINGTON, November 14, 2013 – The group Progress Colorado and the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative have pretty much laid out the case for what Democrats think of women. In an ad for Obamacare, the group touts the free birth control pills that a woman on Obamacare can get.
Democrats and the far left are making it clear that they think of women as sexually permiscuous and morally bereft.
One ad shows a woman standing next to a man who has his arm around her. The caption on the ad says, “OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as this birth control. My health insurance covers the pill, which means all I have to worry about is getting him between the covers.”
There you have it.
Conservatives judge women by who they are. Democrats judge them by what they are and, in the mind of Democrats, the sum total of women is their lady parts.
One can almost see Joe Biden leaning over, patting a twenty something year old woman on the head and saying, “Don’t worry your pretty little lady parts about serious issues like the economy. You have the pill at no charge.”
Where are the feminists?
Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut and the world stopped turning. Feminists demanded that his show be cancelled, that advertisers drop him, that he apologize and under go reeducation.
The feminists are silent on this one. Here we have an ad depicting young women as nothing more than sex objects, only controlled by their lady parts and uncontrolled lust hormones, and the feminists are not saying a word.
At the base level, this whole issue represents a fundamental difference between Democrats and conservatives. It can be reduced down to one simple concept. Democrats believe you are what you are. Conservatives believe you are who you are.
When you deal with Democrats, it is literally a check the box mentality they have. You are a man or woman. You are white, black, Hispanic, Asian or biracial. You are gay or straight.
Those categories define your role in life. If you are a white male, you are a part of the patriarchal, oppressor class. That is unless you are a Democrat. Then your job is to atone for the sins of the white male, patriarchal class. If you are a woman, particularly a woman of “color” then your role is to be a victim, requiring government assistance.
The list goes on and on.
Conservatives don’t view people that way. That is why conservatives don’t pander to the so-called “slut vote.”
The fundamental difference between conservatives and Democrats could not be more defined than it is with this ad.
In 1963, Martin Luther King in his famous “I have a dream speech” exemplified the American ideal. He said he dreamed of a day when, “people were judged by the content of their character not the color of their skin.”
That day is here. Conservatives in America do just that. Democrats do not.
The question for America is, are we going to live up to our ideals of judging every man and woman by the content of their character or not.
