Here We Go Again With Liberal Sexism *Open Thread*

by

By women, that is. We saw this so much back in 2008, first against Hillary Clinton by women in her OWN party, professional feminists choosing Obama over the more experienced woman. And then they turned their sights on Sarah Palin with comments that were so abhorrent and over the top, including wanting Palin to be gang-raped by a group of “black brothers,” courtesy of Sandra Bernhardt. Never mind the young folks wearing their four-letter despicable claims about Palin, including young women.

And here we go again, thanks to those open-minded (cough, choke) women of The View. It was so bad, even a CNN anchor called them out on it (h/t Daily Caller):

Wow. Can you believe that?? I know, I know, I am sure you can believe it. But talk about the sheer hypocrisy of these women writ large. First they use comments about Fiorina to go after Trump, then they double down and say something about Fiorina even WORSE than Trump’s sexist comments about her.

Unfortunately, not all women anchors at CNN are quite so generous to Fiorina. Check out this exchange between Alisyn Camerota from CNN and Fiorina, beginning at the 2:45 mark:

Good for Fiorina for standing her ground, and calling out the liberal bias of the media, especially about women. I think the Left just does not know how to “handle” this incredibly intelligent, articulate, experienced, well versed CONSERVATIVE woman candidate. Then again, they have chosen short-on-substance two terms in a row, and are now wanting to elect a Democrat just because of her gender, so yeah – they probably aren’t used to someone who doesn’t try to evade the questions or shy away from defending herself using FACTS.

There was someone else who came out in defense of Carly Fiorina after the debate. That would be the actor/singer, Donnie Wahlberg, currently on “Blue Bloods.” This is what Wahlberg had to say post-debate, from BizPacReview:

[…] Donnie Wahlberg ✔ @DonnieWahlberg

Believing that @CarlyFiorina, a breast cancer survivor, doesn’t care about women- is as wrong as believing that a female can’t become a CEO!

No kidding!! Way to highlight the hypocrisy, Donnie! Like I didn’t already like you on “Blue Bloods,” now I like you more!

Wahlberg also had this to say about the recent debate:

[…] Donnie Wahlberg ✔ @DonnieWahlberg
I thought @CNBC moderators were meant to moderate while candidates debate. Too many news outlets, too few qualified news people.

Excellent point, Mr. Wahlberg!

As for the moderators, Wahlberg is spot on. There are “too few qualified news people.” Hence why I look forward to the Fox Business Channel hosting the next debate. Maybe the candidates will actually be asked about the economy and business rather than “comic book” presidential campaigns or “Moral authority,” something they NEVER seemed to care about with Obama. Hypocrites. On oh-so-many-levels, I could add…

And with that, I want to move on to another amazing, incredible, strong woman. This one lived back in the 1700’s, though. She was a Blackfoot Indian named Running Eagle, and she hailed from the Glacier National Park area where there is still a Blackfeet Reservation. I hope you can read the text int his photo detailing her exploits (horsewoman, warrior, and chieftain after her father died):

She was an amazing woman on so many levels. After she was killed in battle by a Flathead Indian, she was buried at a waterfall now named Running Eagle Falls near East Glacier and Two Medicine Lake. It is also known as “Trick Falls” since during the Spring and melt seasons, water comes flowing over the top of the Falls as well:

Here is yours truly near the Falls. Fortunately, it was a very short walk from the parking area:

The thing you cannot get, though, is the SOUND of the Falls as the water comes rushing down or the incredibly clean, sweet smell of the fresh air at that elevation. It was just amazing.

As I noted, we were on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation when we went to that part of Glacier National Park. On the way there, near East Glacier, we passed the entrance to the Reservation marked by these two incredible sculptures. Check out the tops of the flag poles, too:

Aren’t those so cool? What a great reflection of the tribe who live there, and who have lived there for ages.

There is so much more going on today, from the debate/passage on the Boehner-Obama deal to how the new Speaker, Paul Ryan, will run the House, to issues of religious liberty when a football coach can be put on leave for praying on a football field. Feel free to talk about any or all of these, including your impressions of the sexist attacks by the women of the View. This is an Open Thread.

    Love!
    My favorite Jesuit priest, Michael McHugh, spent his last working years at the Little Flower Parish in Browning. I met him in Havre; he was a sweetheart.
    I need to follow Donnie Wahlberg on Twitter. I love “Blue Bloods.”

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      That is so cool, lyn! Wow!

      Right? I am glad to see more of these Hollywood types speaking out. And not for nothing, but Wahlberg’s comment was spot on.

  2. kenoshamarge Says:

    There is nothing I can say about the female critters of The View that wouldn’t get my mouth washed out with soap were my mom still around.

    These despicable fools don’t care about “women”. They care about protecting liberal women. Conservative women? They are as sexist as any man ever born when is comes to sexist remarks/attacks. Maybe more so.

    • lyn Says:

      The View things are harpies. Can’t stand them.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      That is pretty much what Elisabeth Hasselbeck said abt them this morning. She said they only support women who believe and think EXACTLY like them. She oughta know, huh?

    CNBC’s Bias Loses the Republican Debate

    Republican candidates team up against CNBC’s biased moderators.

    By Daniel Greenfield

    There’s no consensus on who won the latest Republican debate, but there was no question that CNBC was the big loser.

    The Republican debate on CNBC was supposed to be about the economy; instead it became a debate about media bias as candidates fought moderators over dishonest questions and cynical attacks.

    Instead of discussing the economic worries of a nation impoverished by two terms of the Obama Economy, Republican candidates struggled to talk about the concerns of working Americans while CNBC moderators dug up old discredited attacks from the CNN debate and fired gotcha questions at them.

    Most observers would have said that there wasn’t much that could bring the Republican field together, but media bias did it. Candidate after candidate struck back at the moderators to thunderous applause from the audience. Instead of a debate between the candidates, the CNBC debate quickly became a pitched battle between the Republican contenders and the outnumbered Democratic moderators.

    Greenfield wrote this yesterday and there still is no “consensus” about who won the debate – only a consensus that CNBC lost it.

    Some say Rubio won and some say Cruz. I think both gave break out performances, since that’s what this was, a performance not a debate. I slightly, only slightly favor Cruz as winning.

    Trumpkins insist that he won. I don’t see that. I see Cruz and Rubio winning and CNBC, Kasich and Bush losing. It seems to me everyone else held ground.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      ROTFL abt the “JEB?” cartoon – fantastic!

      Greenfield is so right. I agree that there were a couple of break out performances, and no, Trump did NOT win the debate, despite the claims of his minions. Rubio and Cruz did nothing but help themselves a LOT.

      It does seem that the “moderators” were working hand-in-glove with the DNC with their questions and attacks. Heck when the Gov. of NJ, known for being a bit brash and rude tells someone they are being rude, you KNOW it is bad.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I thought that remark by Christie was terrific. If the GOP would stop fighting each other and fight the common enemy, the corrupt, dishonest and biased media they could do a lot better.

    WOW: RNC Suspends Partnership With NBC for February Debate

    Republicans were none too happy with the CNBC debate on Wednesday. Today, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sent a letter to Andrew Lack, chairman of NBC News, informing him that he is suspending the RNC’s partnership with NBC.

    http://townhall.com/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2015/10/30/wow-rnc-suspends-partnership-with-nbc-for-february-debate-n2073622

    It appears that many of those who are so incensed with Priebus might take a deep breath and see what was promised the RNC and what was delivered. I think his actions are absolutely appropriate. Now if he just doesn’t back down.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Holy smokes – that is huge! Good for him for sending that message to them that this is not acceptable. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens next!

    Beautiful pictures of Suzy and you in front of the waterfall. We also spent time at this waterfall, such a serene aura.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thanks so much, piper! Isn’t it just wonderful at the Falls? It was in the forties when we were at the Falls, and the air was just so clean and crisp. What a beautiful part of the country!
