We all know most extreme leftists are undoubtedly hypocritical. There are those who claim Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) budget plan will kill, starve and abandon disabled children and the elderly but they support Obamacare while denying the inevitable rationing that will occur under socialized health care when the money runs out. There are those who praise the President for intervening in Libya for “humanitarian purposes” but criticize the war in Iraq. A country with a sadistic dictator who killed more Muslims than anyone in history.
However, the most sanctimonious of them all is arguably the feminist left. Their self-righteousness is incomparable. And their two-faced convictions are so transparent it’s puzzling that anyone can listen to their rants or protests and not consider it complete satire.
The most recent example of the hypocrisy comes from the left’s silence when Keith Olbermann attacked S.E. Cupp after her appearance on the Joy Behar show where she states her opinion on the subsidization of Planned Parenthood. The ex-MSNBC pundit tweeted, “On so many levels [S.E. Cupp is] a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work that Planned Parenthood does.”
The response from the left? …Well, we’re still waiting on that.
Why isn’t Joy Behar speaking up for Cupp? Oh, that’s right; she prefers to spew hatred upon anyone who opposes her views and when it comes to conservative women, she tends to become quite the anti-feminist herself (see: the Sharron Angle rant.)
The National Organization for Women (NOW), the group that claims that they work to “eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system and all other sectors of society” has yet to denounce Olbermann’s hate speech as well. Perhaps they will hang back to see if their name gets dragged through the mud enough for anyone to notice, like the organization did when Bill Maher called former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin a “dumb twat” on his HBO show.
After much pressure NOW responded to the incident. But, not surprisingly, they used it as an outlet to promote their own agenda, one that is completely irrelevant to the situation:
“You’re trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend, Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women’s bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc.” (h/t Red Eye w/ Gutfeld)
Feminists can ignore these sexist insults or drag their feet all they want when coming to the defense of conservative women, but all it takes is a harmless barefoot-and-pregnant joke tossed in a progressive woman’s direction for the left to come out of the wood work to crucify the “chauvinist pig” that would say such filth.
Wishing someone had never been born or extremely crude name calling, however, is all in good fun in their eyes— as long as it’s done by radical left pundits.
