RUSH: First story from Breitbart.com: “Leftists Blame White Women for Red State Midterm Losses.” I know you’re saying, “But wait a minute. They won the House.” Yeah, but they didn’t win… There wasn’t a blue wave.
“Leftists on Wednesday blamed ‘white women’ for high-profile Democrat midterm losses, despite those candidates running in red states. Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy tweeted Wednesday, ‘White women: footsoldiers of the patriarchy,’ along with what percentage of white women had voted for” Brian Kemp, Ted Cruz, and Ron DeSantis.” You white women that voted for white guys instead of voting for African-Americans? You are now the official enemy.
“According to the results, 76% of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp,” not for Stacey Abrams. Most white women are nowhere near as radicalized as Stacey Abrams is. Ms. Abrams, can I help? (sigh) You’re not gonna win very many mainstream voters, period, when your posters feature New Black Panthers in full-fledged military garb with AR-15s slung over their shoulders! It’s just not a welcoming message, and “white women” don’t want to be… Anybody! What kind of come-on is that?
So “76% of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp, versus 24% for Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams.” In Texas, 59% of white women voted for Cruz versus 39% for O’Rourke. In Florida, it was much tighter, with 51% voting for DeSantis, and 49% voting for his opponent Andrew Gillum. In contrast, an overwhelming majority of black men and women voted for Abrams, O’Rourke, and Gillum. Abrams and Gillum are black, while O’Rourke is white,” but trending black.
“There was, however, no mention that Georgia, Texas, and Florida are red states that overwhelmingly voted Republican in the 2016 presidential race. There was also no mention that Cruz is actually Latino.” So the “Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy … tweeted that white women were voting GOP ‘against their own interests’ and allying ‘with white supremacist patriarchy,'” and by the way, this is not just verbiage.
This is actually what this woman believes: The “white supremacist patriarchy.” This is what kids are being taught in college right along with white privilege and how evil it is and the white supremacist or white Christian patriarchy, and women who vote that way are voting against their own interests and other women. So that’s one. Here’s another one from the Guardian, a different journalist, Moira Donegan. She’s writing in the Guardian.
Headline: “Half of White Women Continue to Vote Republican. What’s Wrong with Them?” Let me give you some pull quotes here. “Some 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election… On the left, this number can elicit exasperation, rage, and even suspicions about the moral legitimacy of the feminist project.” Fifty-three percent of white women vote for Trump and that doesn’t say much good about feminism, she says here.
“It casts doubts on the political convictions of liberal white women, colors leftist perception of female-coded liberal political projects like the Women’s March, and has prompted long-overdue calls for increased political leadership by women of color.” We are not united, and don’t make the mistake of thinking that we are. Another pull quote: “The real story of white women voters is both more grim and more complex than the 53% figure reveals. The truth is that the 53% of white women who voted for Trump in was actually an improvement on even worse numbers from previous cycles.
“White women supported Mitt Romney at 56% in 2012, and supported George W Bush by 55% in 2004. Even these robust showings by Republican white women were down from their previous highs: Ronald Reagan won a staggering 62% of white women in 1984.” So “hat is wrong with white women?” Moira Donegan asks. “Why do half of them so consistently vote for Republicans, even as the Republican arty morphs into a monstrously ugly organization that is increasingly indistinguishable from a hate group?
“The most likely answer seems to be that white women vote for Republicans for the same reason that white men do: because they are racist.” Now, how many of you believe that the Republican Party is increasingly indistinguishable from a hate group? Can anybody show me any Republican Party mobs that have disrupted peaceful city streets like in Ferguson or in Baltimore?
Can you show me these Republican mobs that are showing up at the front doors of liberal journalists and trying to break in? Can you show me any Republican mobs showing up in Senate office buildings, trying to bully and intimidate a bunch of linguini-spined senators? You can’t. What is this “indistinguishable from a hate group” crap? It is so abundantly obvious where the hate is in this country and the rage and the anger. But, anyway, there you have it.
You white women who vote Republican, it’s no mystery anymore. It’s not really that you’re selling out and being dependent on a man for your life. It’s not that you’re cashing in. It’s not that you’re betraying. It’s that you, too, like your husbands and boyfriends and sons, you’re racist! You white women are just full-fledged racists. And it’s about time everybody said so, according to Moira Donegan in the U.K. Guardian.
Now, I love getting psychoanalyzed by — well, I’m not gonna describe her. If you saw a picture, you would. But let me just share with you this one paragraph. “But there is something else at play,” writes Moira Donegan, “There is something else at play, something more complicated, in white women’s relationship to white patriarchy.” Who thinks this way? What a bunch of convoluted, confused, dead-wrong, embarrassing, overeducated sloths.
“White women’s identity places them in a curious position at the intersection of two vectors of privilege and oppression: they are granted structural power by their race, but excluded from it by their sex. In a political system where racism and sexism are both so deeply ingrained, white women must choose to be loyal to either the more powerful aspect of their identity, their race, or to the less powerful, their sex.”
Now, folks, if that’s not out of some convoluted, psychologically distorted screwed up women’s studies curriculum, I don’t know where it’s from. To think this is what your daughters are having shoved down their throats and into their brains. Let me read this again.
“White women’s identity places them in a curious position at the intersection of two vectors of privilege and oppression.” How many of you women are running around thinking about the vectors of your position? How many of you are comparing your privilege to your oppression? How many you feel oppressed in your day-to-day lives, oppressed by your husbands, oppressed by your sons, how many of you feel this way? Versus feeling privileged some of the other times of the day.
So white women’s identity places them at that curious intersection. “They are granted structural power by their race, but excluded from it by their sex.” White women have no power in life. They’ve traded it for acceptance by the white patriarchy, i.e., their husbands. “In a political system where racism and sexism are both so deeply ingrained, white women must choose to be loyal to either the more powerful aspect of their identity, their race, or to the less powerful, their sex.”
Their race is the most powerful part of their identity. Their sex is next. “Some Republican white women might lean into racism not only for racism’s sake, but also as a means of avoiding or denying the realities of how sexist oppression makes them vulnerable.”
This is insanity. I have to take a break here, but this is what passes for brilliant intellectual, high thought, from somebody that’s obviously so disturbed that you couldn’t accurately describe it.
RUSH: There’s one other woman story. I’m gonna have to save it ’til Monday. There’s not enough time to get into it. But I’ll make sure I save it. The headline: “Why Little Boys Don’t Become Men That Women Want to Marry.” And it’s written by a woman.
And it basically is positing here that modern women are clueless about men and have no idea how relationships really work, but that it’s not their fault because the seeds of failure — i.e., women understanding men — are planted in college with not just women’s studies, but any number of outside influences. And it’s a fascinating piece here. But if I get started on it it’s just gonna be frustrating because I won’t be anywhere near finishing it. So, hey, Siri, remind me to do this women’s thing Monday morning at 10:30.
SIRI: Okay. I added this women’s thing to the reminders for Monday at 10:30 a.m.
RUSH: Good. That way I won’t forget.
