Given his blatant misogyny, especially towards women who stand up for reproductive rights, it's not surprising that Bill O'Reilly's posee includes four men whose attitude towards liberal women, especially those who stand up for reproductive rights, is nothing if not misogynistic. It's also not surprising that these four Neanderthals would validate O'Reilly's contention that the epic attempt to role back reproductive rights is being imagined by women who don't know their place. Adam Carolla compared the requirement that health insurers provide free contraception to getting free beer. Dennis Miller admonished Sandra Fluke to "stop whining" - a phrase used by Greg Gutfeld on "The Five." And two weeks ago (9/14) Bernard McGuirk, who had no problem referring to black women as "nappy headed ho's," and Gutfeld provided more validation for big, spin pimping daddy Bill O'Reilly in his ongoing jihad against women's reproductive rights and those women who support them.
O'Reilly segued into misogyny mode after he played video clips of actress and political activist Kathleen Turner. The first clip was from her classic movie, "Body Heat." The second featured Turner speaking, at the National Press Club, about money in politics. To loud male guffaws in the background, Bill "joked" that he thought she was one of the "biker chicks," shown earlier in a photo with Joe Biden, until he was told that it was Kathleen Turner who "has developed a Southern accent and she lives on Long Island."
Note - O'Reilly and/or his research staff are pretty lazy because had they bothered to research Turner's appearance, they would have found out that she was doing a piece, from her one woman show, in which she channels Molly Ivens - who was fromTexas and had a strongTexas accent!
Gutfeld provided the requisite misogyny: "She reminds me of a feminist that young conservative women have to go up every day. That if you don't think like that, you're not really a woman. This is where tolerance ends, they are the most intolerant towards their own sex."
Scuse me? Where and when have feminists said that right wing women are "not really" women? Unfortunately Gutfeld, who doesn't, as far as I know, hang out with feminists, didn't back up that "fact" that was pulled from the same dark body areas from whence his home boy, O'Reilly, pulls them! And it should go without saying that Greg Gutfeld isn't exactly a paragon of tolerance towards liberal women.
There was more talk about the Turner's comments. Bill repeated that he didn't get the Southern thing. McGuirk interjected that it was a "little bizarre" and that she - ready for it - "seems like an extension of Sandra Fluke." He compared Fluke to "Cindy Sheehan, "a useful idiot for the left." (While Sheehan's son was killed in combat, Mr. McGuirk never served.) He claimed that Sheehan was "dumped" by the left and predicted that Fluke, Turner, and "that bevy of beauties that they trotted out at the Democratic convention" would experience the same thing. He "joked" that if you want to find out about how Republicans treat their women, "ask Ann Romney." He added that if you want to find out about how Democrats treat their women, "ask Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Edwards." (Of course, Ms. Edwards is dead so stay classy, Bernard.)
O'Reilly provided the requisite "war on women" denial with the comment that he didn't "buy it" and asked his homies if they did. McGuirk said that "they're perpetuating a false narrative and once the election is over they're gone, they're useful idiots." He said that "to be fair" to Turner, she's mad about big money in politics. (ROFLMAO - she's a major Planned Parenthood fundraiser). Gutfeld "joked" that Turner "would be a barrel of laughs" sitting in a corner of a bar with a cigarette.
You need more than bleach to clean out the stench from that locker room!
In our world Men Know Their Place and it Ain’t Fer The Womenfolk to Barge In!
Or, could a better example be Alan Keyes’ daughter? His LESBIAN daughter. The one he cut off completely when she dared come out.
And, perhaps we could inquire exactly how GOPers treat Democratic women while we’re at it. Let’s look at how the GOP treated Hillary when she was First Lady. Accusations of being a lesbian (that is, when she wasn’t busy masterminding the death of Vince Foster—her erstwhile lover, according to the conspiracy theorists). Accusations of trying to be a “Co-President” (most notably by the way she tried to force universal health care on the country). Then, she’s accused of “carpetbagging” when she decides to run for the Senate as a New Yorker (of course, when the GOP got Alan Keyes to move to Illinois to run for the Senate against Barack Obama, that was perfectly acceptable—Keyes had expressed a long-time desire to move to the state, even though he left Illinois not long after that failed Senate run).
And, then, of course, there’s all the loving, lavish praise the GOP gives to Michelle Obama. Oh, wait. I meant all the hatred and sneering. Or the praise lavished on Nancy Pelosi. Oh, wait. Again, I meant all the hatred and spite. Or the praise lavished on Claire McCaskill. Oh, wait. Again, a misstatement—Todd “believer in intelligent vaginas which can distinguish between good sperm and bad sperm” Akin just described Sen McCaskill as “not ladylike.”
Any maltreatment of Dem women by Dems pales in comparison to right-wing/GOP treatment of Dem (or liberal/progressive) women. And the treatment of Dem/liberal/progressive women by right-wing/GOP women is even worse.
