Anyone paying to the 2014 midterms is aware that Democrats are kicking the “war on women” into high gear. It’s the latest rebirth of identity politics and scare tactics by the party.
Democrats believe that the top priorities for women are unrestricted abortions and free birth control. The implication is that women are not responsible enough to engage in family planning, not capable of providing for themselves, and thirsty for blood. Even when candidates like [mc_name name=’Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’G000562′ ] come up with smart ideas like making birth control OTC (and therefore, cheaper), he gets attacked for it. Far from being anti-women, Republicans support protecting the life of unborn children and believe birth control should be legal, although nobody forced to purchase it against their will.
Democrats also believe that women are too dumb to read past bill titles. They like to bring up the fact that Republican candidates have voted against bills such as the Violence Against Women Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act. The truth is, violence against women is already illegal on the local, state, and federal levels. And while women make less than men in the aggregate, they actually make similar amounts for the same work, all thing being equal, despite blatant lies about women making 77% of what men earn for equal work.
The stereotypical woman as seen by the Democratic party is obsessed about having abortions, on board with forcing people to pay for their birth control, believes that it is not illegal to violently harm them, and can’t comprehend basic economics.
That is not the stereotypical woman in reality, despite Democrat’s best efforts to make it so, and the “war on women” is going to backfire as more and more women realize that they are being disrespected and misled.
