‘Fire From the Heartland’ Burns Bright Despite Liberal Venom
From my latest article at Human Events
The Left has used a tactic wherein they ridicule and demean people as a way to dehumanize them. Because, Better Than You. They’ve done this in particularly vile ways to conservative women, despite their false claims of being For the Women ™, with horrifically great success in the past. They are continuing to attempt this now, but something is different this time. You see, Mama Grizzlies aren’t easily cowed. And they bite back.
Citizens United released a film last week, entitled Fire From The Heartland: The Awakening of The Conservative Woman. Heavens to Betsy, the Left did not like that—strong, smart and attractive women are super scary! So they fell back on two tired ploys. Sneering in really lame ways, for one. Which I find particularly offensive. I mean, at least be funny. The second ploy was their totally played out “let’s sexualize conservative women as a way to dehumanize them” card.
First came Wonkette, with an ‘article’ entitled “New Twilight Mashup Features Michele Bachmann and Other Crazy Ladies.” See, they combined both ploys: attempts at funny that are anything but, plus demeaning sexualization with lines like “conservative ladies only want to gossip about how Barack Obama keeps shoving things into their mouth-holes. Ergo: This video is not suitable for work.”
Kudos, fellas! Next came the “feminist” site Jezebel who proved once again, with their screed against Fire From The Heartland, that lefty feminists are actually anti-woman and represent nothing but an agenda. First, there is more of the ridiculous somehow discerning oral sex from any phrase that involves the use of the word throat: “In the trailer, set to apocalyptic music, there’s talk about the New York people ramming their candidate down our throats, and policies being pushed down our throats. Ladies, we know all about that stuff, amirite?”
They also claimed that the word “awakening” in the title has sexual overtones. Well, I suppose that in their defense, as leftists they aren’t allowed to have any other kind of awakening. Awakening of thought? Egads! That’s not possible. All women must think the same and walk in lock-step. Otherwise, gender traitors and shills for men, who are evil, natch. Unless, of course, they are part of Big Daddy government.
Some say conservative women are the voice of a movement, the voice of a generation. It’s more than that; conservative women are creating the voices of future generations with our fancy wombs; the very organs which the Left always seeks to use as a way to diminish us. And we are speaking for those unborn babies whose lives were snuffed out mercilessly, never having the chance to be a part of any generation at all.
