The Left’s War on Women Is Actually A War On The Entire Family

Thanks to liberal Democrat Hilary Rosen’s vicious attack on Ann Romney claiming that she has never had a “real job”, the conservative base of the GOP is now united in one front to destroy liberalism. Ann Romney, mother of 5 boys and a survivor of multiple sclerosis and breast cancer, is a testament to the many mothers who sacrificed careers and opportunities to make the selfless service of putting their families first.

This goes beyond attacking the wife of a presidential candidate. This is a vile attack on conservative women nationwide. According to the logic of the left, if you choose to raise a child instead of aborting one, you are less of a woman. We have seen countless, vicious and character attacks on women of conservative ideology. Sarah Palin, for example, was criticized and scorned by the liberal left for raising a child with Down syndrome while pursuing her career. Black conservative women are CONSTANTLY being targeted for their belief in the pro-life movement, small government and for their opposition to President Obama’s policies.

President Obama wants to vocalize his support for women, but the facts say otherwise. Women employees at the White House make 18 percent less of the median salary as do male employees. According to Amy Sullivan of TIME Magazine, the Obama administration is described as a “boy’s club” and suggested that the president has a woman problem. It is reported that senior women staffers are seen and not heard during policy meetings.

I am outraged and furious that the left what to attack women instead of having a constructive dialogue about the core issues affecting Americans today. The REAL war on women is the economic plight that they are experiencing due to big government spending, high unemployment rate, a raking deficit and a President who is opposed to job creation that will benefit many women in the U.S. today.

Stay-at-home moms are usually the ones who are responsible for the economic accountability of their family. There is something that Ann Romney and many other SAHMs have done that puts Obama and Senate Democrats in unfamiliar territory: monitor a BUDGET. The attack on SAHMs is meaningless. They are some of the most hardworking people in America.

I am proud to say that I am a beneficiary of a productive stay-at-home mom. I will forever be in debt to my mom countless hours raising me as a child. She did more than cook and prepare meals. She home-schooled me for a period of time, cleaned and washed dirty laundry, was a mode of transportation for me when I was without a vehicle, provided spiritual guidance, and sacrificed career opportunities so that I was raised in a good home and was provided with a great and balanced family structure.

The left’s war on women affects the family as a whole. It is indeed the demonizing of the motherly figure, the husband that supports her and the children that have grown to admire her. This war must be stopped and the best way to put it to a cease is at the ballot box in November.

    This is a pretty poorly written post. ” According to the logic of the left, if you choose to raise a child instead of aborting one, you are less of a woman.” This is shockingly offensive, and essentially rooted in nothing. I don’t think the left commonly questions the quality of one’s womanhood, and ESPECIALLY not in a case like this. The Left seems to essentially have a much less strong vision of womanhood than you conservative evangelical types do. So, this seems like your laughable attempt at making some more overarching statement about the Left and it’s treatment of women, in connection to the Anne Romney comment. This connection is very tenuous and I personally think it falls flat on it’s face to everyone reading except for the audience you’re writing to which wants to grab ahold of any reason it can to hate the Left.

    Also, using extremely vague statements like “We have seen countless, vicious and character attacks on women of conservative ideology. Sarah Palin, for example, was criticized and scorned by the liberal left for raising a child with Down syndrome while pursuing her career. Black conservative women are CONSTANTLY being targeted for their belief in the pro-life movement, small government and for their opposition to President Obama’s policies.” So many women, COUNTLESS, are attacked yet the only concrete example you can elucidate is fairly poorly worded and I can’t even really tell what you think the Left have done to Sarah Palin in regards to commenting on her child. If you’re saying that “they” (Liberal commentators) attacked her for pursuing a career while having a child with a disability, then I find that claim on your part to be *very* dubious.

    As for the point about women making less in the White House, we all know two things. First, due to longstanding conservative attitudes towards women, men populate most of the higher roles in the White House. So, that would account for the decrease in pay. Secondly, even IF it was even, not awarding women equal rights is nearly a staple of the American Right. So, I’m not sure what you’re getting at there either.

    “The REAL war on women is the economic plight that they are experiencing due to big government spending, high unemployment rate, a raking deficit and a President who is opposed to job creation that will benefit many women in the U.S. today.” Ok, this is completely preposterous. Even if I agreed with you, and as I’m sure you can guess I don’t, I would say this is an “attack” on everyone then. What about what you said specifies that the attack is on women? Absolutely nothing.

    This entire post is supposed to come across as searing or vitriolic I guess, but you really just make yourself look like a fool trying to defend something we all know is untrue. And you do a pretty bad job at making your ridiculous claim. Everyone knows that the Left has had a longstanding affiliation with women’s rights, much to the chagrin of conservatives. Why not try to pander so much to your followers next time Demetrius?

    Palin wasn’t criticized for raising a Downs child. She was criticized for her hypocrisy in running on a values campaign when her own daughter had a bastard child, going against the very values she was espousing.

    Both conservative and liberal professional women look down their noses at stay at home mothers, and women who work in pink collar professions such as childcare, even referring to them as “bimbos” or “losers”. Many of the women they look down at, are doing valuable work in society. And all they get in return is to be sneered at by snooty women who think a high paid career is the only thing that makes anyone worthwhile. Snooty career women need to start showing respect for the nurses, teachers and childcare workers who helped them become what they are today.
