Skip to comments.The Vilification of Conservative Women
Posted on 10/22/2020 8:18:32 AM PDT by Kaslin
After watching Amy Coney Barretts confirmation hearings, Americans should be outraged. The Democrats used it as a political commercial, questioned her integrity, pushed a narrative that she is threatening and radical, attacked her Catholic faith, and even asked her if she ever was arrested for harassment. But even more disturbing is how conservative women, not only Judge Barrett, but many in other professions, have been threatened because of their views.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently wrote a book, The Mind of a Conservative Woman. She told American Thinker, Too many liberals, everyone is merely an economic unit, and every principle is one size fits all. In one of my chapters, I discuss how mainstream media has misrepresented conservative women. They, as with all women, are smart, focused, and want the best for everyone. Yet the press says conservative women's voices do not deserve to be heard because they are pro-life, pro-military, pro-business, and pro-faith."
She went on to say, Conservative women are treated very differently than liberal women. They do not want them to have a voice, unless they espouse the liberal talking points. The senator made this clear during the Judiciary hearings, They attack you (Judge Barrett) for not fitting into the paradigm of the left, because youre pro-life, pro-family, and pro-religion, and It is so discouraging to me to see groups on the left say we want diversity, but let that diversity come from a woman who is on the political right, and their heads explode.
Apart from Judge Barrett, this also happened to a best-selling fictional suspense author.

Amy Coney Barrett and Sarah Palin. Hard to find two more accomplished women. The Left hates them, and feminists wanted to see them destroyed.
This is typical of libs. Commies.
They LOVE their groupings, they can do no wrong (to wit, riots). Until they give just one wrong opinion. Then the name-calling starts, complete with racial and sexist epithets.
This is the response I got from one of my useless senators when I contacted her to support Judge Barrett:
“Thank you for contacting me about the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court left by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I welcome your thoughts on this important topic.
As you may know, the Appointments Clause of the Constitution gives the President the power to nominate federal judges, which includes Supreme Court justices. After the President nominates a candidate, the nomination is sent to the Senate for consideration where the Senate Committee on the Judiciary holds a hearing on the nomination. If a nominee is voted favorably out of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he or she may receive a confirmation vote on the Senate floor.
On September 26, 2020, President Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court. As your Senator, I take seriously my constitutional responsibility to provide advice on and consent to the Presidents nominations, particularly with respect to lifetime appointments to the federal judiciary. I exercise due diligence for all nominations and thoroughly vet every nominee whose position requires Senate confirmation. In this case, the rush to confirm Judge Barrett’s nomination violates precedent set just four years ago for filling a Supreme Court vacancy in a presidential election year. In fact, unlike the 2016 election, millions of Americans across the country, including in Nevada, are already voting. I have called on my colleagues to honor precedent and ensure that the American people have their say at the ballot box before the Senate considers a lifetime appointment to the Court. For now, Judge Barretts nomination to the Supreme Court is currently pending before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Should the nomination come to the Senate floor for a vote, I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind.
It is an honor to represent you and all Nevadans in the United States Senate and I welcome your input as we work to find common ground in the 116th Congress. To stay informed of my work in the Senate, please visit my website and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.”
I am still crafting my response now that the committee has done their job. How disgusting. How about some leadership and you tell the minority leader that you plan to be part of setting a new “precedent”. Disgusted but not surprised.
I don’t know who hates women more, feminists or muslims. One is more open about their hatred for them.
