Feminist Leaders Compared to
Religious Right Leaders

American Thinker, by Janice Shaw Crouse

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 3/18/2013 8:59:14 AM

A recent study found that the number of working women who believe that a career is as important as being a wife and mother has fallen 23 percent since the 1970s. Apparently, women are growing more and more uncomfortable with hardcore feminism and believe that it is out of alignment with the views, values, and aspirations of ordinary women. Let´s ride the feminist wave backward a bit and revisit a few feminist icons. How much do you know about their private lives? As they say, "The proof is in the pudding."

The "feminist movement" these days is only about two things - abortion and lesbian rights. Is it any surprise that young women are rejecting it?

This is very similar to an examination of the lives of prominent philosophers of the last two centuries- Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Sartre, etc- all whose lives were pathetic shells of what real life should be about. You will know them by their fruits.

Fo me, feminism has always been about full personhood for women. Nothing less and nothing more. That means the same opportunities, the same responsibilities. And I am tired of feminist ´leaders´ using female-ness to whine and complain, and excuse all sorts of bad behavior. I expect women to step up and help pull the wagon, as women have always done, not sit back and complain.

NOW has hardly any members yet the LSM still uses them as spokes-person of anything feminist. Same as PETA, membership is miniscule yet the LSM treats these rouge org. like they speak for many more people than they do.

What most people don´t realize is that there is ´feminism´ and ´Feminism!´.

´feminism´ is the belief that both sexes should have the ability and/or opportunity to make any choice for one´s self (as long as it is legal/moral/ethical etc.) A woman can be a CEO, if she wants, just as a man can be a stay at home Dad, if he wants.

´Feminism!´ is the myth that all women are victims and this can only be solved by attacking men and society and changing things to ´rectify´ the ´problem´.

Scott Walker is the next target

Having successfully demonized Chris Christie over the closure of traffic lanes on a bridge, the leftist mainstream media are now targeting Scott Walker, another very promising potential GOP candidate for president. All of this in the context media downplaying and outright ignoring revelations of lies under oath in a scandal that cost four American lives including an ambassador that reflects badly on Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post offered a front page story intimating Scott Walker faces a scandal in an ongoing investigation launched by his political enemies in Wisconsin (who are legion because he successfully took on the public employee unions

The revolutionary guerrilla network, the Sons of Liberty, was a grassroots reaction to unjust taxation. It got off to a roaring start in 1765 by burning the Boston commissioner of stamps in effigy, and burning his home and offices to the ground.

Fleeing his failed diplomatic Middle East efforts, noted nonscientist Secretary of State John Kerry flitted off to Indonesia where he exuded hot air bloviating about (hu)man caused climate change as a weapon of mass destruction as noted here earlier. However, by Kerry´s reasoning, the ongoing slaughter in Syria is nothing compared to Kerry´s own contribution to manmade climate change/worse than any weapon of mass destruction, blah, blah, blah. How so? John Kerry is not a flappy bird moving from place to place under his own power. So how does he get around? Why, by planes. Big ones.

Oh, lookie, Speaker John Boehner and his dimwits have decided that riling up the party´s base over immigration reform isn´t so smart after all, not in an election year. Instead, the speaker and his dwarves will seek to "calm" a divided party, or so reported the Washington Post on Monday. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is all-in for the soothing music and back rubs approach for aggravated Tea Party patriots and grassroots conservatives. But it won´t work. Boehner´s little stunt -- pushing Paul Ryan´s immigration cave-in -- at the Stupid Party´s retreat at Williamsburg in January has only highlighted the need

It is a basic principle of psychological warfare that the side that controls the language of the argument controls the argument. Barack Obama´s own website is using this PsyWar technique by calling opponents of his cap and trade agenda "climate change deniers." (snip) The name "climate parasites" performs two jobs with exactly two words. It derails completely the enemy´s position that our side consists of people who are totally ignorant of climate science, or choose to ignore it.

You have been subsidizing the efforts of radical left-wing community organizers for years, and you probably didn´t even know it. Fifty years ago as Barack Hussein Obama inhaled the values of his communist parents, grandparents, and mentors, their comrades were drafting plans to destroy American civil society. Armed with your parents´ and grandparents´ tax dollars, America-hating extremists Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, and Saul Alinsky were hard at work in the 1960s laying the foundation to wreak havoc on America and its people in an effort to force revolutionary change. Progressive agitators´ quest to obliterate economic freedom was aided by the "War on

During a week in which a massive snowstorm delivered a one-two punch to much of the nation, a tiny avalanche of rulings and calculated legislative maneuvers thundered down from courts and statehouses across the country. Kentucky: A judge ruled that the state must recognize same sex marriages from other states, even though Kentucky has a same sex marriage ban in place. Virginia: A judge overturned that state´s same sex marriage ban, which went undefended by the state´s new attorney general. New Mexico: The state´s attorney general has announced he will not defend his state´s prohibition on same sex marriage. Indiana: The State Senate, despite

The funniest, most satisfying read of the day has to be Zombie´s delightful takedown of an attempt by feminists to hijack Valentine´s Day and turn it into a celebration of victimology. On February 14, Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler had earlier decreed something called V-Day, a "rape-themed anti-holiday," but once the novelty wore off, came up with the new, improved 1 Billion Rising day. As Zombie put it in her article .00001 Billion Rising: Another Failed Mass Movement: The thesis behind 1 Billion Rising is that if the world´s one billion rape victims all rose up en masse and danced every

Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, during a visit to Monticello on Monday, February 10, said, "That´s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want." That statement, made to French President Francois Hollande and Monticello Foundation president Leslie Bowman, was presumably a joke. Key word: presumably. With Obama, you never can tell. Obama´s own recent statements suggest that what he said at Monticello is what he truly feels. Speaking to House Democrats on Saturday, February 15, 2014, Obama said: I want to work with Congress to make that happen. But, I´m not going to wait, because there´s too much to

Inequality in America is a terrible thing, unless it results in a nice afternoon at a golf course so private that "uncrowded" does not begin to describe the solitude a presidential foursome can enjoy. Few things in this world are more unequally enjoyed than the luxury of a personal golf course. But our inequality-hating president found the time to enjoy one yesterday. (snip)The ultra-rich are not and never will be the real target of Democratic Party rants against inequality. Instead, they reserve their venom for the hard-working entrepreneurial and technical/professional classes who seek to rise from upper middle-class ranks into

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

Four United States Senators have a written a letter to FBI director James Comey about the indictment of author and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza. Senators Charles Grassley, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee are the four senators, all Republicans, to have signed the letter.

Conservatives have had it up to here (hand to top of forehead) with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Having barely recovered from the Cruz-induced shutdown and the calamitous backlash against Republicans, the GOP had to endure another episode of Cruzian grandstanding and the post-grandstanding trash talk. Mona Charen of National Review (stocked with many Cruz admirers) writes that it is “particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans.” At issue was his stunt on the debt limit in which he denied the

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov. Jerry Brown last month declared

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

Two leading Republicans on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say that Michael Morell, then acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, gave an account of his role on Benghazi that was often misleading and sometimes deliberately false. “I went back and reviewed some of his testimony the other day and he’s gotten himself in a real box,” says Senator Saxby Chambliss, the highest-ranking Republican on the committee. “It’s really strange. I’ve always thought Mike was a straight-up guy, gave us good briefings—factual, straightforward.
