West Beats Up a Straw Woman


Former Rep. Allen West went on Steve Malzberg’s radio show to defend Mike Huckabee’s absurd and hypocritical comments about women and contraception, inventing a straw liberal that doesn’t care about Malala Yousafzai and saying that Democrats “tries to win the women’s vote by talking from the waist down.” As opposed to the right, which tells them that they aren’t capable of controlling their own reproduction so conservative men have to make those decisions for them.

    As opposed to the right, which tells them that they aren’t capable of controlling their own reproduction so conservative men have to make those decisions for them.

    Not quite right.

    The christofascists know that women can and do control their reproduction.

    It terrifies them that their mobile incubators can talk and think. They think only men should control everything, including women.

    It’s neither moral or legal. If you don’t own and control your own body what are you? That is one definition of a slave.

    A woman voting for the GOP is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

    raven “A woman voting for the GOP is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.”
    Well, sure, but as long as Colonel Sanders really sticks it to, you know, those other chickens first, then, morally, it’s all worth it.

    After the GOP lost the last election with a nonxian Reptilian shapeshifting candidate, they claimed they were going to do some things differently.

    1. Throttle down on the racism. They did poorly among nonwhites, a group that will be a majority around 2030.

    2. Throttle down on the misogyny. Women already are a majority in this country. They lost two federal races because some hate filled angry old white man could not stop bashing women for no sensible reason, Todd, legitimate rape Aikens and one other.

    Neither happened. It’s like they are meat robots on some simple minded program left over from the Dark Ages.

    It is however, a small gift to the Democrats.

    Modusoperandi:

    Democrats, don’t try talking from the waist down! You’ll only be able to make vowels!

    With me, it’s mostly alveolar fricatives.

    I like how he mentions “strong men” and adds in “strong women” . I was waiting for “subservient women”. You can hear him make the mental edit.

    No edit required, under proper definition of the term. “Strong women” = women with the confidence to submit to the man of the house without hesitation or question.

    I wonder how long it will take them to figure out that its not the messenger, or the form of the message, its the content that’s the problem? I just hope its a good long time, because this is hilarious.

    @4 He really should be known as Todd “Shut that whole thing down” Aiken, a more egregious offense than leaving out the words “charge of”.

    Uh, huh. Agreeing with women that their vaginas are their own business is talking to them from the waist down. And telling them that their employers can deny them coverage for contraceptives because of the employers’ oh-so-delicate religious consciences is appealing to their intellect.

    Keep it up guys! Making people like West part of the Republican “mainstream” is the best thing Republicans have ever done for Democrats and liberals in general.

    I think I just had a vowel movement.

    Ok! Ok! Hey I TRIED not to make that joke. I tried I tells ya!
