This makes me absolutely LIVID: Ann Coulter wants to take away women’s right to vote.
And honestly? I didn’t think it was possible, but this infuriates me even more:
I am a woman, and I support repealing the 19th Amendment as well. Can any of you dispute the statistical FACT that if we took away womenâ€™s right to vote, weâ€™d never have another Democratic President elected? I think only one Democratic President in that last 60 years was elected with a majority male vote. Why is it that the Democratic Party canâ€™t get men to vote for them? I know why women (especially single women) vote Democratic: because they need a daddy or hubby to take care of them.
My brain hurts from trying to fathom this comment. As though having a Democratic president were the worst that could happen? I don’t care if that is a “statistical FACT” or not – it’s still a horrible, wretched reason to drag this country back to the last century.
You want to know why women vote for Democrats? THEY HAVE WOMEN’S INTERESTS IN MIND. It’s possible that men do not vote as much for Democratic candidates, but I’d guess it’s primarily because they do not have as many personal, close-to-home issues to feel strongly about as women.
Seriously? Getting rid of women’s rights to vote because you don’t like which candidate they choose? That, to me, is practically the very definition of being anti-democracy. I can’t imagine voluntarily abolishing your right to have a say in what happens to your own country, your own family, and your own body because you don’t like how other women vote.
Rory’s follow-up comment was this:
Because, missmolly, Republicans like Ronald Reagan wonâ€™t let government take care of poor, defenseless little women. Strong women vote GOP!
…and then this:
I would gladly give up my life if it means no more Democratic Presidents get elected.
Again, as though that were the worst that could happen? If that’s not voting on the party line, I don’t know what is. “Who cares about the issues – as long as they’re Republican, I’m good.” It’s a label. A LABEL. I could have a vehemently pro-choice, pro-gov’t sponsored healthcare, anti-death penalty, pro-women platform and label myself a Republican. Would “Rory” still vote for me then?
Also found on Digg: Lady worries about the effects of jackhammer noise on her unborn baby whilst smoking a cigarette. She apparently remains unconcerned about the effects of cigarettes on unborn babies.
A selected comment from that post:
What surprises me most is that this woman is actually pregnant. The fact that sheâ€™s complaining about something means sheâ€™s definitely a Lib, and Libs usually murder their babies before they get too far along. Maybe this slut is holding out for a partial birth abortion.
What surprises me is that “Jehovah” thinks all “Libs” are baby-hating assholes. “Usually murder?” C’mon. Liberals don’t hate babies – we like babies so much that we want them to be born to parent(s) who WANT them and are able to care for them. And oooh does that “partial birth abortion” bit get me. That makes it sound as though it’s a party she can’t wait to get to; as though it were a risk-free procedure anyone would choose willingly; as though she is purposefully waiting so she can forgo the less-complicated procedure in favor of the more angst-ridden, complicated, emotional procedure.
Don’t feed the trolls, I know. It’s so hard not to, though, when what they say is so demeaning.
