How many ways can you use “Republican war on women” in a sentence?

posted at 4:50 pm on March 14, 2012 by Tina Korbe

The Washington Examiner’s David Freddoso makes sport of earnest, sincere, pleading, heartfelt Democratic fundraising e-mails:

I noted yesterday that I’ve received 23 fundraising emails on the topic [of Sandra Fluke] from just the two Democratic congressional committees (the DCCC and the DSCC). You know that silly game Republicans play with flag-burning amendments? The Democrats’ version is the “war on women.”

Today I’ve received the 24th, and it is a hysterical wonder to behold. Supposedly penned by Rep. Diana Degette — more likely by some nameless staffer at the DCCC, and that’s giving Degette the benefit of the doubt — this email manages to use the phrase “Republican war on women” or a close variant four times in just 254 words, as IBD’s Sean Higgins pointed out on Twitter this afternoon. …

If you read through it and listen carefully, you can hear the gullible entering their credit card numbers.

Ah, yes. War is Republican House leaders lining up congressional witnesses that don’t include Sandra Fluke, relegating her to an exclusive hearing before sympathetic Democrats. War is a radio host using a few tasteless phrases, conservative pundits calling out the media double standard and employers denying employees insurance that covers contraception.

Charles Lane — whom I rarely read, so don’t hold me responsible for any of his other views — writes for me when he writes:

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of war.

The Democratic National Committee accuses the GOP of a “Republican War on Women,” to go along with its “war on working families” (according to the Progressive Change Campaign Committee) and “Paul Ryan’s war on seniors” (Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky).

Various Republicans accuse President Obama of waging “war on religious freedom” or even, in the words of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, “a war on religion.” According to the Republican National Committee, the president is also waging “war on energy,” the sequel, apparently, to what the House Republican Leadership has called “Democrats’ war on American jobs.”

And on and on and on — until you could almost lose sight of the fact that not one of these institutions or individuals is describing a physical conflict in which people fight, bleed and die.

Do I believe that conservatives and progressives are in a battle of ideas, a conflict of visions, etc.? Yes, yes and yes. Am I sick of the “war on whatever” shorthand? YES. Surely we can come up with a more creative way to say that the political stakes — of the contraception mandate debate, of the broader Obamacare debate, of the entire 2012 election — are high. To borrow another popular metaphor, we’re at a crossroads. One path appears to destroy the American Dream; the other path seems to restore it. By objecting to “war on whatever” phraseology, I’m not denying any of that. I’m just saying that, if you use a phrase enough times, it loses its resonance, its power, its verve. We can do better — and we don’t even have to abandon military vocabulary to do it. How about we call Election 2012 “Freedom’s Last Stand” or “The Charge for Liberty”? Anything but “war.”

It’s hard to believe that the Dem’s think this is a winning strategy with women who aren’t already firmly in the Dem camp. In other words the swing voters that they need to win. Essentially their message is:

Women are so weak, defenseless, and dependent that they must have the Democrat party and Dem politicians to protect them from the Republican meanies.

Seriously? They think that is a winning message with women?

Maybe they should address the things women really care about like gas prices, inflation, and a promising future for our children.

jrnlz on March 14, 2012 at 4:58 PM

There is not a Republican war on women.
The Republican war on women does not exist.
The Republican war on women is a fantasy of the left.
The Republican war on women is the left’s war on truth, justice and the American way.
The left’s imaginary Republican war on women is a crime against humanity.

Maybe its just me, but I think a war would likely be an improvement. I mean, at least one side would eventually win and that would stop to stupidity; or at least limit it to one brand of stupid. The way things are going now the political class might just drag this out forever or until people quit contributing money to campaigns.

Besides, I’m a conservative and the liberals don’t have guns. We do. So let’s just get it on and get it over with.

Dec 7th 1941(March 14 2012)
==============================

Today,March 14 2012

a date which will live in infamy –the Republican Women of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Liberal/Democrat/Progressive/Socilaist Party.

The DNC, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Tea Party area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and contraception of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe I interpret the will of the Republican Women and of the Patriots when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again in our Respect for
Conservative Women.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.Make Damn Sure You Respect Republican Women.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounded determination of our people – we will gain the inevitable triumph –so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by the DNC on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Democrat Party.—-(Snark)

massrighty on March 14, 2012 at 5:13 PM

Democrats invent these baseless accusations to create and proliferate emotional disorder. I add: “d’oh”.

It’s the Trip-And-Fall lawsuit method: you accuse, you allege, you whine and you get your ‘charges’ out there in the public however you can — graffiti, classified ads, self-supporting vanity websites, people paid to loiter with signs promoting the accusations, yaddayaddayadda — and you generally annoy everyone until someone responds and the response is usually to engage in the issue being accused, which means you join in the baseless accusations by arguing about the irritation and annoyance, then you pay a great deal of money for lawsuits or to get some privacy and the accusations come out on top. Unfortunately.

Anyone and everyone KNOWS there’s no “Republican war on women,” even the Democrats making the accusations. But they’re not making the accusations to seek truth but to seek disorder and to get just enough people who reach the point where they start denying being Republican or wanting to associate with Republican, etc. and then the accusers (that is, liars, the Democrats) take home some of the territory they don’t rightly own, but stole.

The Democrats war on women, I find credible, however, that that is an accurate behavior by Democrats.

No, it wasn’t…

… it was a panel to discuss the implications and consequences of Obowma’s mandate in Obowmacare that forced religious institutions to go against their beliefs, which is unconstitutional.

The Left was loosing the argument…

… and “ta-da!,” Nancy Pelosi’s side show with Ms. Fluke, the media ran with the “meme”, and the “Republican War on Woman” was born.

It’s a flat out lie to detract from Obowma’s unconstitutional mandate…

I’ve got an old poster that my Mega-Lefty mother-in-law gave me….it’s about the “Bush War on Women.” This is nothing new.

See, the Left needs an “evil” “bad” guy in order for their world view to make any sense. So they usually just make one up.

While they should be focusing on actual issues such as economic liberty -which effects all people, including women(!)- they are easily distracted by fake controversies that require no insight, rational thought, or careful analysis.

The DNC is trying to coast on the emotional resentments and anger and rebellion from the ’60′s. It’s the same ghastly retreading and recycling of the Ayers’ politics of burning up the U.S. because “the man is evil.” Burn the bras, draft cards, lie and cheat because, because

The Left’s War on the Catholic Church…

adding that one to my earlier list, as also the “global warming” ripoff by the Left (alleging “Republicans hate the planet and living things,” etc.)…

It’s the abortion industry, that one that the Left loves and needs, that is driving this “war on women” false premise by the Left against “Republicans.”

And, the Left needs to attack the Church because of other behaviors that the Catholic Church deems to be morally and spiritually wrong.

It all boils down to the Left being really corrupt and irresponsible and they malign, attack and try to destroy those who identify them as such.

DHChron on March 14, 2012 at 5:22 PM

Sandra Fluke is needy and she’s found a soapbox issue and some deep pockets to fund her egotistical desires for attention.

She’s willingly participated in “training” to promote, defend and proliferate the end of human life (abortion industry) under some ruse of it being some righteous “choice” to take such actions against defenseless human life…trained in the propaganda, paid for by the Left, Fluke, the “reproductive rights specialist.”

What does that even mean? “Reproductive rights specialist.” To the Left and to Fluke among them, it means “promoting abortion”.

Lourdes on March 14, 2012 at 5:28 PM

I’m in complete agreement about the use and over use of phrases and words, not just in politics but in society in general.

I’m especially tired of scandals of all sizes and varieties being dubbed “Fill-in-the-blank, GATE”. We’ve had forty years of it… that’s plenty. Those in the media need to develop a wider lexicon.

Words that get worked over and over worked, such as ‘Whatever’, set my teeth on edge. Similarly people picking up popular word usage or phrases and using them to a state of shopworn shabbiness makes me wish to end the conversation as quickly as possible. For example, when trying to express a positive response babbling “Yeah, yeah, yeah” to show interest and excitement, when just any simple… and singly expressed.. affirmative response would suffice with far more elegance, is an indicator of the speakers command of the language.

These matters may seem trivial to you. I assure you, when interviewing prospects for career positions, or considering an employee for advancement, language skills, both on the job and at social functions, matter.

DHChron on March 14, 2012 at 5:20 PM

The Left today isn’t even about “women’s liberation” but about pushing for increased victimization, increased neediness and increased indentured class just because someone’s gender is female. The Left today is promoting females as victims, as “entitled” to being supported and carried along by others, as incapable of independent thought and personal responsibility.

Fluke is a primary example of this corruption by the Left of “liberation” — their product they’re pitching is entitlement, which is dependence, not liberation.

So, war on women, war on middle class, war on children, war on war…war on everything….anyone who is not fully in the Obama camp is thus an enemy…an enemy of the state.

War on Progressives should be declared and fought until progressives are taught how toxic they really are to mankind.

But, the Right won’t do it…might lose a few points in the polls.

Hell of a way to have a war when one side refuses to fight or even stand up for what is right.

I personally don’t mind the “War on _________” exaggerations, but this:

How about we call Election 2012 “Freedom’s Last Stand”

is an awesome idea!

Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane:

PETER SAGAL, HOST: So, let’s take the President’s dog. Obviously, that was focus-grouped, you really wanted to appeal to the Portuguese-American community with the choice. Seriously, do you, is it part of your job to worry about that, how things will play politically. How they’ll look, how they should be framed?

DAVID AXELROD, WHITE HOUSE SENIOR ADVISOR: I only, I only got called in for the final three on the dog.

SAGAL: Really?

AXELROD: I wasn’t there at the beginning of the process.

SAGAL: Seriously, were you consulted?

AXELROD: I was not consulted.

SAGAL: Really?

AXELROD: I was not consulted.

SAGAL: Really?

AXELROD: Yeah.

UNIDENTIFIED VOICE: But who were the other two? Were there really two others?

AXELROD: One was Miss California.

(Audience applause and laughter)

UNIDENTIFIED VOICE: Dude, you just lost the carelessly topless demographic for 2012.

“War on Women? What ‘War on Women?’” he said.

Democrats remove choice from women’s lives with every piece of legislation they pass…and they have the temerity to accuse the GOP of waging a war on women?

LMFAO! Pure projection. They are telling you what they themselves are doing.

Stupid Stalinists…

What a bright idea to run an ad for a petition to overturn Roe vs Wade. That will really help getting votes from independents…

Maybe our legislators could spend their time dealing with issues instead of trying to get single motherhood labeled as a contributing factor in child abuse. I don’t think the issue is on the national level, but some of these state bills are getting ridiculous.

Oh put a sock in it. Anyone who knows anything about Roe v. Wade knows that petitions against it are about as useful as attacking a tank with a BB gun.

I’m shocked at that picture, why is she laying down? It’s supper time, get to work!

John Kettlewell on March 14, 2012 at 11:04 PM

And here I thought that the liberals claimed that ‘war is NEVER the answer!’. Well, apparently it IS the answer when they want to increase their coffers.

‘GOP War On Women’ = diversion from the fact that Obama violated the Constitution (AGAIN, this time…)with his mandate on religious groups.

The Liberals/Democrats are desparate to prevent the discussion from returning to the BOTTOM LINE behind this whole issue – Obama’s (continued) assault on the Constitution.
