Liberal Women Stooping to New Low to Convince People to Vote Democrat

This is seriously wrong on every level.

Published

Despite all of their rhetoric about women being treated with decency and respect and not as sexual objects, liberal ladies certainly do a whole lot of self objectification, don’t they?

Ten left-wing women have decided that the best way to motivate folks to get out and vote Democrat in the November midterm elections is for them to put together a “cheeky” campaign — you’ll get that in a second — where they strip down to their birthday suits and ask you to “grab them by the ballot.”

Yes, this is every bit as cringy as it sounds.

The series was named, in a reference to Donald Trump’s infamous “grab’em by the p***y” remark, “Grab Them By The Ballot.” Trump’s comment became public late in the 2016 election season.

The photo series was organized by Dawn Robertson, 48, who wanted women of different shapes, sexual orientations, and races to demonstrate their unified opposition to the Republican Party. Robertson said her effort was precipitated by the #MeToo allegations against various celebrities as well as what she termed the GOP’s attack on women’s reproductive rights and transgender people’s rights.

Robertson, a Harvard Law graduate who writes about sexuality and relationships, according to The Daily Mail, said: “With the Kavanaugh nomination and MeToo and Trump, women are rising everywhere. What the Republicans are doing to transgender rights, the way they are attacking women’s reproductive rights and the collective trauma means that women are really coming to the forefront now. I hope that the pictures encourage women and marginalized communities to vote. I want them to know that their voice matters and this is serious s***.”

Robertson acknowledged her debt to photographer Anja Shutz for her 2016 series of nude photographs, similarly titled “Grab Him By The Ballot,” where a series of woman also posed nude with ballots to cover them. Robertson added, “The difference is we are saying it’s not just Trump, it’s Kavanaugh and all the alleged abusers who have been exposed by the Me Too movement.”

Robertson claimed there were those who were angry at her for her effort: “I faced a lot of backlash when I tried to recruit a diverse group of women. I was told I was objectifying women, that nudity equals promiscuity and even that I was playing the part of a white savior. But I don’t think that the pictures oversexualise the women.”

Robertson concluded, “Nudity is fine, being naked is a natural expression. Men have sexualized and monetized women’s bodies but these pictures give the power back to the woman.”

This is pretty disturbing for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is the fact this sort of flies in the face of everything “feminism” is supposed to stand for. How is presenting your body for others to leer at in a perverted way empowering? That doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense, does it?

Respecting yourself, true empowerment, comes from modesty, not from using political causes as an excuse to get naked in front of the whole world.

Enormous Confederate Carving Subject of Renewed Debate

Will Stone Mountain be vanquished by an army of virtue signalers?

Published

Over the course of the last several years, and with a vast acceleration in 2020, municipalities around the nation have been removing, renaming, and re-dedicating a number of Confederate monuments now deemed offensive in the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Not everyone is a fan of the move, however, with opponents often suggesting that this is a revision of history, and that these men were also American soldiers, in a way. Now, one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world, the carving on the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, is facing renewed calls for removal. Crowds are growing larger at the monthly meetings of the Georgia board considering what to do about the giant carving of Confederacy leaders in Stone Mountain. But officials seem no closer to an answer. The Stone Mountain Memorial Association decided to make a few changes last month, but they weren’t enough to placate people who want the monument removed. A museum exhibit will tell the story of the carving, as well as the site’s ties to the Ku Klux Klan. But having to make those decisions could increase the volume and the pressure on the board, NPR reports. Critics have pointed out that the carving is a modern piece, and not a relic of a bygone era. “Where we go from there?” asked the board’s chairman, the Rev. Abraham Mosley. “I don’t know.” Putting the site in a Georgia context seems like a challenge. None of the three men—Confederate Gens. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and Confederacy President Jefferson Davis—was from the area, and no battles were fought there. As a piece of history, it’s not that historic, having been completed in 1972. The monument sits within Stone Mountain Park, an amusement park of sorts, that has lost a number…

Russia Continues Harassment of American Military Just 35 Miles Off US Coast

That’s a little too close for comfort.

Published

When it comes to dealing with Russia, much of the US policy is straightforward, and likely on account of the fact that the Kremlin has been pulling the same, silly stunts for decades now. In fact, it’s getting a little stale. Russia loves to use her military as a nuisance to the United States, posing danger at times, certainly, but most often just being undeniably annoying. This week was no exception. Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US. At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War. Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer – within 35 miles of the U.S. state. The moves have forced the US military into action. Twice this month – on June 14 and 18 – the U.S. scrambled F-22s from Hawaii in response to Russian bomber flights. Neither time did the bombers enter the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) perimeter, and so they were not intercepted. On June 17 the Navy admitted that the USS Carl Vinson and her strike group were operating near Hawaii, without revealing when they had arrived, or why. It has been only a few days since Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, in a meeting that both men seemed to suggest was a success. This latest Kremlin aggression begs to differ.
