The War on Women?
We hear all about this “War on Women” that the Democrats like to claim that the Republicans are waging. First, I think these “wars” are silly. It cheapens what the word means. Comparing policy to dropping bombs on a people certainly cheapens the term.
But hey, while we’re at it, can we ask why the Democrats are waging their own “War on Women” or more specifically, mothers?
Feminist activist Gloria Steinem and several chapters of the National Organization for Women (NOW) have condemned the Democratic National Committee for “discrimination against mothers with young children” during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
How exactly is that happening? What is Steinem talking about?
“The DNC requires children and babies to have a credential to enter the Convention, and then denies these credential requests from moms. The DNC credentialing process is being used as a tool to prevent mothers from participating at the Convention and is nothing short of discriminatory,” said Lindsey Horvath, president of the Hollywood NOW.
Why are Rhode Island’s national Democrats like David Cicilline, James Langevin and Sheldon Whitehouse not stepping up and making a big deal about this? Why aren’t they fighting for mothers? Do they not care? Will they attend the convention if delegates who are mothers are not able to participate?
So to recap here, the whole “war” talk is silly, but what the Democrats appear to be doing with their convention is embarrassing and insulting.
