Tina Brown: These victories by Republican women feel like a blow to feminism

posted at 7:03 pm on June 10, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via the ‘Busters, a friendly reminder from the editor of “The Daily Beast” that no matter how diverse the GOP becomes, the authenticity card will always be there to discredit its candidates. Four huge wins by Republican women over male opponents? Oh well: If you’re not pro-choice then you’re not a feminist, no matter how much power you may have or how hard you may have worked to get it. The irony is, of those four, the only one for whom gender became an issue was Haley, and that was only because the Carolina sleaze machine started tossing sex smears at her in desperation. Angle was the “tea-party candidate,” not the “woman tea-party candidate,” and Fiorina and Whitman are already nationally famous as CEOs. Had Will Folks and Larry Marchant left Haley alone, she would have been known as the good-government Sanford disciple. Gender wasn’t otherwise relevant in any race, except in the most superficial sense of signaling to voters that this is “something different” in a year when being something different from the usual Washington dreck is good. Brown, in fairness, recognizes that point, as does Doyle McManus:

GOP primary voters, a deeply conservative bunch, don’t appear to have much of a problem with strong women in public life anymore. Not only that: The GOP is consciously trying to turn gender into a selling point. This isn’t just the march of equality; it’s a strategy. Republican strategists say female candidates should run well this year, when voters are dissatisfied with incumbents of both parties, because women are, by definition, outsiders; they’re not members of the “old-boys club.”…

“Men are always perceived as being in a back room making deals, and women are perceived as being shut out of the back room,” says Linda DiVall, a pollster who has worked with the Republican National Committee…

“Too often the Republican Party is seen as old, rigid, stern and out of touch,” DiVall said in her report. “Recruitment of female candidates, especially from outside government, will help greatly in changing perceptions of the Republican brand.”

I don’t think any of them won because they’re women — if Kang and Kodos had Fiorina’s and Whitman’s advertising budgets, they could have won too — but obviously gender wasn’t a liability either. And there surely is potency in the idea of Haley romping to victory in a southern state over three white male establishment politicians. Based on my limited knowledge of the race, she’s clearly the most appealing of the four — and the polls showed it, race, gender, and religious background notwithstanding. Three cheers for meritocracy.

I suppose it all depends on her definition of feminism.

If feminism to her necessarily involves supporting pro-abortion causes and promoting the idea that women are down-trodden and men are awful, then, yes, Tuesday’s primary was a blow to feminism.

I personally have a different definition of feminism, but, I’d bet that’d make me a ‘wingnut’ in Brown’s view.

JadeNYU on June 10, 2010 at 7:09 PM

Isn’t that the point of the feminist movement? To ensure that gender isn’t a liability?

Just jumped straight to the end here but she is right. These women do land a blow to the perverted feminism Tina Brown and her ilk practise. They have sold their soul to the hard left and have forgotten what they started out fighting for, in a sense they have trapped themselves and moved backwards. Successful women was the strategy, and that means in family life, career, or wherever their hopes and dream led them as long as they had the option. I don`t think it just meant the hard left agenda. Sorry if I am repeating many other posts from above.

bluemarlin on June 10, 2010 at 7:33 PM

It’s a blow to people whose career is based on selling an image of women as victims. It has been in their interest to keeping pushing an extreme version of feminism, so as to delay the inevitable when women are treated as equal.

Deep down, most liberals hate women and most liberal women are self-hating women. Liberals despise everything that makes women different from men — every innate tendency, every instinct and every feeling, and it doesn’t matter if you are a governor, a congresswoman, or a judge, unless you expressly align yourself with the Left, you are persona non grata to them. And even then, look at how they treated Hillary Clinton. Remember how the MSM obsessed over her ‘emotional’ moment in New Hampshire during the primaries? http://www.newsweek.com/2008/01/06/hillary-tears-up.html Please.

And the great and tragic irony is that abortion was sold to the ’60′s-era feminists by Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the founder of NARAL who, upon seeing ultrasounds of abortions became a stalwart pro-life activist and speaker. If you read his book “The Hand of God, he tells how he pitched abortion to groups like NOW under the guise of allowing women to “take control” and “get ahead.”

It’s well worth the read.

In order to be a Feminist, you must support a woman’s right to choose life or death as much as politically possible (including stealing money from people opposed to it and using that money to pay for abortions).

But also, you must support the Liberal agenda in its entirety, every single plank. You cannot be a feminist if you oppose redistribution of wealth.

Well obviously if you don’t read from the liberal playbook that clearly states ” you, as a woman, will sit down and shut up when told to” then you are not a true feminist. You’re against the slaughter of unborn children? You’re against us. You actually think you can raise your children better than the State? You’re a turncoat. You actually LIKE men and value them as equals? Then there is no hope for you at all. Most of the feminazis are really against the freedom of women in that they state what we can and cannot do and when we can do it. And God forbid if you happen to have a happy, well adjusted family. That’s just fodder for their harpish fires.

Edouard on June 10, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Tina Brown: These victories by Republican women feel like a blow to feminism.

How so? Mrs. Palin, for example, is a card-carrying member of a feminist organization. These women claim to uphold “conservative” values, yet live something completely different. Feminism and socialism are inextricably linked.
In order for socialism to work (i.e. state control, a wanting by the population for the state to care for them), the Judeo-Christian-model of the family must go. If families look to the father/husband as their protector, provider, and priest (as per Ephesians 5, among other texts), as opposed to the state, then socialism will never work. A Judeo-Christian culture is too hostile to such an idea of relying on the state vs. the family patriarch. So, under the guise of equality, feminism has sought to destroy the home by driving a wedge between the wife/mother and family. Men, according to the Bible, are to lead the home, to love their wives as Christ loves the Church, and be the priest, protector and provider of the home. Women, according to the Bible, are to be their husband’s helpmate, the keeper of the home, the mother of her children. Feminism seeks to get women out of the home in order to double the workforce of the nation. Feminism seeks to subvert the Biblical model for home and church leadership by encouraging mothers to abdicate their role as mothers to the state (i.e. daycare, state-run education). No longer are men the voices of their families at the city gates. The reason women couldn’t vote before was not because of a lack of value on their part: far from it. Men should value their wives’ input. It was meant that the family was the smallest political “unit”, not the individual. A family would speak in one voice, with the father/husband at the city gates saying, “I represent the ___ family, and we stand for ___.”
I’m sure you’ve heard the W.R. Wallace’s saying, “A mightier power and stronger Man from his throne has hurled, For the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world.” Imagine the power women have through the education and daily care of her children. Imagine the worth of her work: educated, well-mannered, Godly children. Through Marxist writer Antonio Gramsci’s idea of “cultural hegemony”, socialists/feminists have convinced women that staying at home is demeaning and worthless. We see the way our culture is headed towards socialism. Imagine if mothers haven’t left the home and husbands/wives haven’t abdicated their responsibility of educating their children to the state. Our culture wouldn’t be anywhere near as messed up. History is my evidence of this.

Send_Me on June 10, 2010 at 11:54 PM

The success of women will lead to the destruction of women.

Is there any other way to sum this up?

listens2glenn on June 11, 2010 at 1:17 AM

Tina Brown doesn’t want women to be free, she just wants to be the one to tell them what they can and can’t do.

Her actions belie her proclaimed beliefs, and thus she beclowns herself.
