Once again, Jon Stewart's comment about how "conservative victimization is the true genius of Fox News" was underscored on this morning's Fox & Friends who featured yet another right wing whiner and who is making the claim that she was not welcomed at a feminist event because of her conservative views. Somebody call me a whambulance!
As the mouthpiece for the patriarchal right wing, Fox News doesn't look kindly on feminism. Fox & Friends has featured, on several occasions, Phyllis Schlafly's niece, Suzanne Venker for denigration of those nasty feminist bitches. So it wasn't a surprise that this morning's Fox & Friends was pimping the same message.
During a "Fox Flash," on this morning's Fox & Friends, Steve Doocy said that the "war on women" is "taking a strange turn." He played video, from a feminist leadership conference, in which speakers asserted that feminism is inclusive. Making one of his patented funny faces, Doocy said "watch what happens when these same women find out that the reporter asking the questions is from a conservative group." Video worthy of James O'Keefe and Lila Rose was shown in which a garbled comment, that sounded like "you guys are not wanted here," was made. It wasn't clear if the person who made this comment was one of those who were speaking. In other words, it was a crude attempt at a rather unconvincing sting video. The agitprop chyron framed the message: "The Feminine Mystique, Why the Intolerance in an 'Inclusive' Group?"
Doocy informed us that, earlier, the Foxies had spoken with Katherine Timpf from Campus Reform, a conservative group that ferrets out "liberal bias" on campuses. Timpf occasionally graces the set of Fox & Friends and was interviewed by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, in February, about an evil, librul textbook that said nasty things about St. Ronald Reagan. Video was shown of Timpf, whining to Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Brian not-a-feminist Kilmeade, about how she was "automatically excluded" and "bullied" by the evil, librul feminists who said nasty things to her.
The chyron reinforced the anti-feminist message "Everyone is Welcome, Female Excluded at 'Inclusive' Feminist Event." Hasselbeck reinforced the chyron by reading a statement, from the conference Facebook page, about how everyone is welcome. Hasselbeck quipped, "I didn't see an asterisk there."
Forgive me if I'm skeptical. But according to an Ivy League Daily Kos writer, who provided documentation, she twisted his words about how the ACA affects college students in her article on the Campus Reform website. But never fear. Lucky for Katherine, her right wing pals have her back. The Daily Caller, whose writer Patrick Howley is an unabashed sexist, is reporting on her travails at the hands of intolerant feminists. Her sad story is making the rounds of other right wing websites. And you won't be surprised to know that Fox Nation is on it. The title of their piece, with accompanying video from Campus Progress, is "Female College Reporter Bullied at 'Inclusive' Feminist Conference for Being Conservative."
Ain't no party like a conservative pity party and Fox & Friends is bringing it!
Well, given the bimbettes that frequent the Fox Fiends set, I guess looks count for more than brains. Of course, looks fade much faster than brains and, if not for good plastic surgeons and ample amounts of botox, most conservative women would reach their “expiration date” not long after turning 40.
(For the record, you might want to dig up pictures of Phyllis Schlafly, if you want to see something really homely. I understand she was the original model for the Demon character in “The Exorcist” but the producers felt that face would be far too scary for even the bravest and hardiest of souls.)
